Kahr Firearms Group of Pearl River is the first gunmaker to announce it’s leaving because of the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, which was put into law after closed-door negotiations in January.
The NRA wants coherence in the law. Therefore they argue that if 18 is old enough to posses and shoot a handgun, 18 should be old enough to purchase a handgun as well.
… things you won’t hear about from the saturation coverage of the Newtown, Conn., school massacre:
Mass shootings are no more common than they have been in past decades, despite the impression given by the media.
We would be better off debating two taboo subjects — the laws that make it difficult to control people with mental illness and the growing body of evidence that “gun-free” zones, which ban the carrying of firearms by law-abiding individuals, don’t work.
“Guns are already banned in schools. That is why the shootings happen in schools. A school is a ‘helpless-victim zone,’”
… a groundbreaking study in 1999 … found that a common theme of mass shootings is that they occur in places where guns are banned and killers know everyone will be unarmed, such as shopping malls and schools
… “With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.”
I first heard the word “navigator” in ObamaCare legislation – those people who are hired to teach others how to game the system.
… Who pays the “navigators?” ACORN undercover? George Soros? Planned Parenthood? An entity the Department of Health and Human Services secretly pays to extort us? NBC?

Because the Obamacare bill is huge, confusing, contradictory, and filled with malodorous, semi-digested bits of roughage which Nance Pelosi “passed so you can see what’s in it,” there are a few aspects of the law which needed clarification.
For example, the Obamacare law specifically states that lawmakers and their staff members must purchase their own health insurance through the online exchanges that the law created. Period. Case closed.
Hmmm- that doesn’t seem to hard to interpret, does it? But the language means that these very highly-paid individuals would then lose the generous coverage already provided under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, and have to share the same options as the filthy rabble.
That’s why the House and Senate brought in a lawyer…well, a former lawyer who no longer has a license…to carefully reexamine the language. That man, who by wild coincidence happens to be the very “Obama” that “Obamacare” was named after, has interpreted the language to mean “never mind what the law says – politicians and their staffs can still keep their high salaries (averaging around $174k/year), and their taxpayer-funded top-quality healthcare plans, and get a Monopoly card that allows them to “Go Directly Past The Death Panels and Collect $200k.”
A letter that all Congress Critters should receive:
» An open letter to the Arizona Congressional House Delegation
It has come to my attention that a recent decision by the Executive Branch provides that Congressional staff will have their costs for compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) subsidized, ultimately by the taxpayers, in the amount of 75% of the cost.
Accepting a perquisite such as that completely breaks faith with your electorate – who receive no such subsidy. Moreover, to permit such an offset for your staff would seem to be a violation, in spirit at least, of your oath to support and defend the Constitution.
Either you are willing to set the example for your constituency and for other, less motivated members of the House and Senate, or you assent to be counted among those for whom personal privelege, power, and ‘perks’ are more important.
What Obozo actually said:
If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don’t do that, those ships are going to go someplace else. And we’ll lose jobs.
What the shamelessly biased media reported:
“If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf — (and in) places like Charleston, S.C., or Savannah, Ga., or Jacksonville, Fla. — if we don’t do that, these ships are going to go someplace else and we’ll lose jobs,” Obama said.

… all this talk of violent revolution was Jesse Jackson approved. The very right reverend can be seen clapping Mr. Meegan on the back after his diatribe is over.
From the YouTube comments:
A significant number of teachers and teachers union members are like this, at the very least, most have an enormous sense of entitlement to YOUR income and an inflated sense of self importance compared to us peasants. Personally I’d LOVE to see ass clowns like this resort to violence, they would make great moving targets, but, these nuts would never get their own hands dirty, they just whine and cry to government to do the income theft and redistribution for them, spineless cowards the lot of em
That sumzit for me.
“The lack of protecting those four Americans in the consulate in Benghazi…that is a sin. We know, we’ve seen reported, that there was live video streaming into the Situation Room at the White House. That means there were platforms, aerial platforms, that could’ve been used. … Where do you draw the line? Being PC — politically correct — and you don’t want to offend the leadership in Libya? So you let four Americans be killed and, be mutilated? Outrageous!”
“Everyone that knew about this…everyone that knew about this, ought to be going to jail over that. This is murder.”

I’m thinking that we should change the pet name for our government from “Uncle Sam” to “Pimp Daddy Sam
Just think about it – pimps convince naive, desperate people that they are incapable of caring for themselves. They convince their victims that they need a “strong arm” to provide for them and protect them. Slowly, they establish their control. They begin by providing basic necessities – food, clothing, shelter. And then, little by little, they infuse their prey with mind-killing substances, effectively chaining them in bonds of slavery. And, having effected complete control, the pimp becomes the master.
For well over a hundred years, our government, our “pimp”, has been positioning us for the ultimate slavery. And look at us now. We vehemently despise our slave-holding past while we actively encourage intellectual, financial and religious slavery. Tell me that we are now better off than we were 150 years ago. Tell me that plantation life was worse for slaves than our modern drug-laden inner-cities. Tell me that the addicts, the welfare masses and the gang-bangers are free men.
As slaves, it is our duty to strive to be free men. We must be free to fail. We must be free to suffer. We must be free to think, to act and to serve the master of our souls. It’s time to kick the pimp to the curb. We must no longer live as slaves but as free men.

The case illustrates how little federal officials know about where goods and services they purchase come from, with one Whitehead firm selling ammunition to the Army, according to government contracting records, thus raising questions about whether bullets of dubious quality wound up in soldiers’ hands.

It’s something we always promise we’ll do, isn’t it? Remember the victims.

Because they videotaped their victims, the defiance of one fifteen-year-old, Kristen French, is on record. “Ordered to perform a particular sex act,” the article notes, “she refused, insisting, ‘Some things are worth dying for.’” The girl never gave in, even when her tormenters showed her the videotaped death of another of their victims.

If your U.S. Congressman is home and brave enough to hold a Townhall, put him/her on the spot now and ask if he/she supports immigration reform as written by the Gang of 8. If she/he says ‘no,’ ask them what they will support about the Senate bill, then ask him/her to promise not to support any House version of the Senate bill that will go to conference for reconciliation. If you are told the bill will fix the problems, tell them they lie.
… The fact is, few if any of those Republicans deciding to support the Gang of 8 idea of immigration “reform” won’t be holding Townhalls. They won’t go on-the-record. They are afraid of you.
