Is forced disarmament necessary? Going door to door in no-knock midnight raids is foolishly dangerous. It is also profoundly unnecessary. Honest gun owners present no danger to the public. They never did. If Connecticut gun owners are a threat at all, they threaten the public image of bigoted politicians who now look politically foolish and publicly inept.
This opinion and decision both found that a handgun in a vehicle doesn’t have to be in a locked compartment in the motor vehicle to fit within a statutory exception to the concealed carry prohibition that allows for a person without a permit to conceal a firearm within a secured compartment or “secured” container within a motor vehicle. The McAuliffe amendment seeks to contradict the opinion and ruling by forcing drivers to keep firearms in a “locked” container rather than being allowed to secure those firearms in a container without a lock as they have lawfully been doing for years. What began as a simple clarification bill would be turned into legislation that is worse than current law.
» Selling Your House in Illinois? Make it a Gun-Free Zone!
Because somebody with a gun and intent to rape, rob and/or murder will be stopped by a magic No Guns sign. In the liberal universe, that is fact. Science has not yet determined if the power of Thee Sign applies to the person or the just the gun.
I propose an experiment:
Put up a No Guns sign. Attempt to run past the sign with a gun. Will you run into an invisible wall that breaks your nose or will your gun be ripped from your hand or holster as you cross the line?
Then again, does the magic sign only work on people with bad intent? I’ll have to find a dhimmicrat, I mean a criminal to help with the experiment.

» COLOR ME SHOCKED: Obama Surgeon General Nominee is a Radical, Gun-Grabbing Kook
The administration’s choice to be the nation’s doctor in chief views gun ownership as a public health issue and not a constitutional right, and wants doctors to query patients about guns in their homes.
Murthy is the 36-year-old president and co-founder of the anti-gun group Doctors for America, which advocates ObamaCare and gun control laws.
His group, which has been dubbed “Docs vs. Glocks,” has pushed Congress to ban “assault” weapons and “high-capacity” magazines.
When has Obama ever made an appointment of someone that wasn’t a blatant communist, radical leftist, Constitution-hater or a repulsive pervert? Has there been one honest, normal patriotic American? Just one?
» OBAMACARE’S ULTIMATE FAILURE: THE UNINSURED AREN’T BUYING
… new studies that show uninsured Americans are profoundly uninterested in ObamaCare. The ostensible point of this hideously expensive exercise – the way it was sold to the American people – was the desperate need to bring insurance coverage to those left in the cold by the old system. A trillion dollars later, it turns out most of the uninsured would rather stay out in the cold.
… Experts agree that the high cost of ACA policies is one of the big reasons the uninsured aren’t biting, which should not come as a surprise. People who didn’t want to buy the old, cheaper, better policies aren’t going to shell out more money to buy insurance with higher deductibles, smaller provider networks, and a boatload of mandates that don’t make sense… sold through a crabby network of federal and state computer systems that still aren’t completely operational, despite years of preparations and over a billion dollars in total expense.
… This really should be the final nail in ObamaCare’s coffin. The last stand for its defenders was the argument that sure, most of American hates this law and they’re suffering because of it …. but it’s all worthwhile for the Greater Good, because millions of Americans will get insurance coverage for the first time. That isn’t happening.
You don’t know what you’re talking about, because you don’t understand what’s good for you. But the Obama Administration will try to make you feel better for another year…oh, and hopefully those of you who still have your old insurance won’t get cancellation notices right before the midterm election.
This newest delay will permit members of non-qualified health plans in the non-group market to keep them for another two years (through 2016). Got that? Even though he signed a law banning such plans starting January 1, 2014, President Obama has unilaterally granted permission to extend the life of plans persistently derided by various administration spokespeople (including the president himself) as “substandard,” “cut-rate,” or “junk” plans offered by “ bad apple” insurers
… anything that slows down this train arguably is a good thing (though admittedly some conservatives demur on this point). But no conservative I know thinks it’s a good idea to flout the law and the Constitution. Unlike the first reprieve for cancelled plans, for which one might have made a case for expediency (the botched rollout of the Exchanges having put way too many people in the position of literally being unable to replace cancelled coverage in a timely fashion), this newest delay is transparently political.
(THHO)Obama didn’t issue this unconstitutional and thereby illegal decree because he was uncomfortable with the possibility of people going uninsured or badly insured . He is uncomfortable with the possibility of people going uninsured or badly insured during and/or preceding an election cycle.
(c) This section shall not apply to any person who is engaged in labor union activities which are permitted to be carried out on the property by the California Agricultural Labor Relations Act, Part 3.5 (commencing with Section 1140) of Division 2 of the Labor Code, or by the National Labor Relations Act.
“CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE” …. criminalizing “TRESPASS BY CREDIBLE THREAT TO CAUSE SERIOUS BODILY INJURY“ does not apply to “any person who is engaged in labor union activities”
That might explain why unions are always on the same side with the anti-gun bigots. eh?
~~ via NationalReview: States Give Criminal Exemptions to Union Goons
Remember how the IRS was used as political weapon by the Obama administration in order to help his reelection chances in 2012? The political targeting was so awful that the leftist media was even forced to report on it, causing many Democrats to feign outrage at the acts. But when they had the chance recently to prevent this type of targeting from ever happening again, they voted it down.
Immigrants tend to vote Democratic not because they’re withdrawing their support from Republicans until the GOP works with Democrats on immigration reform, but because they benefit from generous social programs …
“They’re not for amnesty,” she said. “They’re for the goody handouts of Democratic party… [A]mnesty is suicide for the conservative movement and the Republican party.”
“Of course the aliens will never learn English before they get amnesty,” while their background checks will be as thorough “as the Boston bombers,’” she added heatedly.
“The immigration bill is a disaster for unemployed, a disaster for people with low wages,” she said. “It’s a disaster that the people coming in will not vote the way we want them to vote, to cut overspending.”
All the talk about ‘immigration reform’ is actually about excusing illegal aliens from Central and South America. Use of the word immigration already invokes images of hispanics only.
Do Indian immigrants get to look forward to instant naturalization? Or Chinese? Ukrainians? Germans? Of course not – they want to come to America to be American. Or the majority do anyway, while the majority of Mexicans want to come here to be Mexicans in America.
Big difference, especially considering that the majority of real immigrants coming to America to become Americans do so with the desire to take advantage of the freedom and liberty to make of themselves – instead of taking advantage of freebies offered by leftists in exchange for their eternal vote.

Opening the Third World floodgates Teddy Kennedy maliciously unlocked with his 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act would exacerbate every problem we face, including but not limited to crime, urban blight, unsafe highways, high unemployment, unsustainable entitlement spending, cultural balkanization, a deteriorating work ethic, and the decay of our government into a banana republic.
This is a price people like Obama are willing to pay for obvious reasons. They prefer the Third World ideologically, and find a wretchedly impoverished, government-dependent population with no cultural commitment to constitutional principles easier to rule.

… a small science experiment triggered the fire alarm …
… Kayona … was swimming in the school pool for health class at the time. Her clothes were in her locker, and a teacher told her that there was no time for her to change. Hagen-Tietz was rushed outside–still wet and dressed in only swimsuit … It was 5 degrees below zero in St. Paul that day. With the windchill, it was 25 degrees below zero.
… teachers and school administrators unaccustomed to thinking found no exception clause in their book of rules for this particular situation. Terms of employment for them must exclude common sense altogether. Or they’re all idiots … idiots who have never had their ass whipped by irate parents.
