We’re getting to crunch time. According to the folks at Breitbart, the Feinstein “assault weapon” ban bill goes before the Senate committee Thursday, February 28. Details here: http://www.breitbart.com.

People, we’re up against the heaviest and most underhanded full-court press against the civil rights of gun owners that this nation has ever seen.  Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly threatened Democrats in the Colorado state legislature that if they didn’t vote for Draconian gun bans, he’d use his billions to finance Democrat challengers to unseat them in the next election.  The White House is calling state legislators to intimidate them into voting for gun bans at the state level.

And now, we are told that the Obama White House has fielded Internet ninjas, apparently with liberal use of fraudulent accounts, to create the illusion that a huge majority of Americans want our legislators to take our rights away: http://www.thedailysheeple.com/obama-admin-aims-keyboard-commandos-at-gun-control_022013 .

If you haven’t yet contacted those who represent you on Capitol Hill, now is the time. If you have, contact them again and remind them.

I hear a lot of gun people saying, “Aw, they’ll never pass the ban.”  I think they’re whistling past the graveyard.  Remember that any bill which includes a provision for registering firearms will be a precursor to confiscation, as it has virtually always been in the past.


  1. So if Bloomburg is threatening State Legislature in Colorado, doesn’t that make him guilty of threatening a public official? If there’s hard copy of this, I would think a case could be made.

  2. Senate Judiciary Committee to consider assault weapons ban

    Dianne Feinstein is aggressively pushing for an assault weapons ban. | M.Scott Mahaskey/POLITICO

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) has released a series of gun-violence preventions bills — including a controversial assault weapons ban being pushed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) — for mark up in his panel on Thursday.

    Because of procedural rules in the Judiciary Committee, any member — Republican or Democrat — could delay that session for a week.

    But the move to include the assault weapons ban in the committee package guarantees that the National Rifle Association and gun-rights groups will try to derail the bill in committee or when it reaches the Senate floor during the next several weeks.

    Other legislation being considered for Judiciary markup is a bill by Leahy to stop illegal gun trafficking; a “placeholder” proposal on universal background checks for all gun sales by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.); and a measure by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) to increase school safety.

    Leahy has been pushing for expanded background checks for all gun transactions. His legislation would make it more difficult for “straw purchasers” to obtain guns for third parties, especially those with criminal records or who would otherwise be ineligible to buy a gun themselves.

    (Also on POLITICO: Liberal group hits Mitch McConnell on guns)

    “I don’t think there should be exemptions at a gun show, or for straw purchasers,” Leahy said in a Sunday interview on CNN. “We want to say to everybody, so that if you have a violent crime in your background, if you’re under a restraining order, if you have some of these problems, you’re not going to be able to legally purchase a firearm.”

    Schumer has been working with conservative GOP Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla.) on a background checks bill, one designed to win broad bipartisan support, but they have not reached an agreement at this time. The two senators hope to have a deal by the time the Judiciary Committee moves ahead with its markup. Sens. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) are also part of those talks.

    Coburn told POLITICO on Monday that he is unsure if a deal will be reached before Judiciary is scheduled to begin its markup.

    “Sen. Leahy gets to do whatever he wants and he usually does whatever he wants,” Coburn said. “I think what he’s doing is counterproductive to what we’re doing.”

    The one hangup, Coburn said, is the continued insistence by some that a national registry of gun owners be kept.

    “There is not going to be a permanent record kept because no gun [law] will pass if that’s a part of it,” Coburn said. “If that’s a requirement, what will happen is we’ll lose the support for something that we really need to do.”

    If he’s able to strike a deal on background checks with Schumer, Manchin and Kirk, Coburn said he thinks it will get strong backing from fellow Republicans.

    “It will have massive support from both sides of the aisle,” Coburn added.

    But considering the Feinstein assault weapons ban in committee — which is likely to be adopted with Democratic support — means that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will face a likely GOP filibuster on any gun legislation.

    Some Democrats up for reelection in red states in 2014 are also likely to support efforts to strip the language from the bill once it reaches the Senate floor next month.

    Feinstein, author of the 1994 assault weapons ban, is scheduled to chair a Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday on the assault weapons ban.

  3. Here’s a link you can use to find out how to contact your elected officials:


    Calling them on the phone is the best option. You’ll be talking to an intern checking tally marks on a form, so you can keep it short – the tally mark is the same either way. “Please encourage senator/rep [X] to say NO to new gun control measures.”

    Another great tool (which should ideally be done in addition to, not instead of calling) is this outstanding Ruger e-mail tool that essentially takes your address and automatically sends a form letter to all of your reps for you:


    Folks, we’re not the big dog in the fight, here. President Obama is employing the full power of his billion dollar campaign apparatus that got more than 50 million voters to the polls. The NRA only has about 4.5 million members and a 200 million dollar annual budget.

    1. Contact your reps.

    2. Join the NRA if you haven’t. Then have your loved ones, friends, and anyone else who will join also join.

    3. Take people shooting. Teach them gun safety. I find that more than 90% of people who see, handle, use, and learn about firearms and how they can be safely operated realize who it is pulling the wool over their eyes pretty quickly, and it ain’t us. Fear comes from ignorance.

    4. When the people you educate ask you how they can help, start them on #1 above and work them through this list.

    Don’t let up.

  4. I am doing what I can. But I believe the fix may be in. here in Md., our beloved Gov. wants a 10 rnd. limit, fingerprinting and registration. I’m tellin’every Leg. critter I can get ahold of that people will not comply, they’ll have to jail or kill us when they meet resistance…and there WILL be resistance. Pray for us in Mordor….

  5. It’s been a busy two months of near-daily pro-2A activity for me, between e-mails, phone calls, and talking to people to education them (and hopefully insulate them against the anti-gun myths). When it gets tiresome or discouraging, I have to think about the sacrifices of the people who really fought for the rights we have, and I realize it’s the least I can do.

  6. Not sure if they have the votes in the House. But in CT we’re totally screwed. This was once a proud, firearm owning state. Newton has gutted our politician’s sensibility. Can’t believe this is happening to a State that has produced companies like Colt, Marlin, Winchester, Sturm Ruger, etc. Take Mas’s comments to heart…the battle is on and CT is the front lines of this confiscation debate. CT Patriot

  7. I just emailed all of my reps using http://www.congress.org. Easy to use, just look to the right and you will see the links to fed and state. I’m one who believes nothing will pass nationally, but I never though BHO would be re-elected either.

    I feel for all of those facing restrictions at the state level. I’m thankful I live in KY, where there is plenty of room for new residents! Thanks for everything Mas (guess I may call you that?)

  8. Legislation passed during the passion of the moment usually results in laws with unintended consequences. What appears to be politically expedient at the moment to quasi conservative legislators will haunt them when they return to their districts,i.e “Obama care”. Prohibition must have seemed politically attractive at the time as it had much broader public support than these gun control proposals and we all know how well that worked out. Remind your congressman to protect the constitution as they swore to and to represent their constituents, not the leadership of the party.

  9. As you know, Mas, I sent the following to all the appropriate people, including the White House (futility, I know):

    I am writing to you because I am greatly concerned about the irrational, knee-jerk reactions of some of our elected representatives, and the so-called mainstream media, to the various mass killings that have occurred in our country, especially the most recent one in Connecticut. There are numerous reports about pending legislation and other onerous proposals to further infringe on the constitutionally protected right of the American people to keep and bear arms. Statements being made by “gun control” politicians, anti-gun groups and most media reports cite erroneous, biased and deliberately manipulated “statistics” and anti-gun demagoguery to support their misguided and historically ineffective “solutions” to violence in America. As horrific as these violent acts are, they pale in comparison to the damage that will be done to the rights, freedoms, liberty and safety of the American people if we allow enactment of these ludicrous legislative proposals.

    As with any terroristic events, whether perpetrated by foreign or domestic individuals or groups, we cannot sacrifice the principles upon which this country was founded in any misguided attempt to make the American people feel safer. Violence, unfortunately, is a constant companion to all people. What sets the American people apart is their ability to resist violence, in all its forms, when it is necessary to act in their own defense. I have spent most of my adult life as a firearms and public safety professional, whether in military and civilian law enforcement, other public safety and emergency management or as a firearms and use of deadly force instructor. I have first-hand experience in dealing with violence in our society and I do not support any proposals that would restrict, diminish or otherwise violate the rights of the law abiding people in this country. Nor will I support any law or other action, no matter how well-intentioned, that would actually jeopardize the safety of the American people as a whole, or any future innocent victims of criminal or terroristic acts.

    I therefore ask that you not only vote against, but vigorously oppose any and all firearms and gun related legislation that infringes on the constitutionally protected rights of the American people, or in any way further victimizes innocent Americans. It is time to stand by the decent and law abiding people in this county and stop enabling the deranged monsters that prey on those who are vulnerable and, in many cases, made helpless by ill-conceived and ineffective restrictions directed at lawfully possessed firearms and their owners.

    Thank you for your support.

  11. Anti-gun Democrat wins primary to replace Jackson
    By SOPHIA TAREEN | Associated Press – 1 hr 8 mins ago.. .

    Associated Press/Charles Rex Arbogast – Robin Kelly celebrates her special primary election win for Illinois’ 2nd Congressional District, once held by Jesse Jackson Jr., Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2013, in Matteson, …more
    Former Democratic U.S. Rep. Debbie …
    CHICAGO (AP) — The newly elected Democratic nominee to replace disgraced former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. vowed to become a leader in the fight for federal gun control and directly challenged the National Rifle Association in her victory speech.

    Robin Kelly, a former state representative, emerged early as a voice for gun control after Jackson resigned in November. Then she gained huge momentum when New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s super PAC poured $2 million into anti-gun television ads that blasted one of her Democratic opponents, former Rep. Debbie Halvorson, for receiving a previous high rating from the NRA.

    Kelly supports an assault weapons ban, while Halvorson does not.

    “We were on the right side of the issue, and our message resonated,” Kelly said shortly after her win.

    In her victory speech, she promised to fight “until gun violence is no longer a nightly feature on the evening news” and directly addressed the NRA, saying “their days of holding our country hostage are coming to an end.”

    Bloomberg called Kelly’s win an important victory for “common-sense leadership” on gun violence, saying in a statement that voters nationwide are demanding change.

    But other Democratic front-runners accused Bloomberg of buying a race and interfering in the heavily urban district that also includes some Chicago suburbs and rural areas.

    “It shows, unfortunately, you can’t go up against that big money. … That’s the problem with super PACs,” said Halvorson, who unsuccessfully challenged Jackson in a primary last year. “There is nothing I could have done differently.”

    Because the district is overwhelmingly Democratic, Kelly’s primary win all but assures she will sail through the April 9 general election and head to Washington.

    In the Republican contest, Chicago resident Paul McKinley led Eric Wallace, a publisher of Christian books, by 23 votes with a handful of precincts still uncounted. McKinley, a former felon, describes himself as a grassroots activist on behalf of ex-offenders.

    The race was the district’s first wide-open primary since 1995, when Jackson was first elected to Congress. He resigned in November after a months-long medical leave for treatment of bipolar disorder and other issues, then pleaded guilty this month to spending $750,000 in campaign money on lavish personal items.

    Even with his legal saga playing out in the courts, the gun debate dominated the primary, which featured 14 Democrats. The election came after Chicago saw its deadliest January in more than a decade, including the fatal shooting of an honors student just days after she performed at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.

    Political experts and fellow candidates said the super PAC money made all the difference, particularly in an election with a short primary and low voter turnout.

    “The money bought Kelly a tremendous among of attention,” said Laura Washington, a political analyst in Chicago. “She tapped into a real hard nerve out there in the community. People are really concerned about gun control and violence. She was smart to focus like a laser on that issue.”

    Bloomberg’s entrance into the race became controversial, at least with the candidates and some voters.

    The Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent has long taken a vocal stance against guns. He launched his super PAC weeks before the November election and spent more than $12 million to back seven candidates nationwide, including newly elected Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod, a California Democrat who ousted an incumbent during a race where guns were an issue.

    On Tuesday, Kelly told supporters that she would work with Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to get gun control legislation through Congress.

    However, gun-rights advocates dismissed the notion that Kelly’s election and Bloomberg’s attention would fuel the debate on gun control.

    “This is an aberration,” said Illinois State Rifle Association spokesman Richard Pearson. “This shows what you can do with $2 million in an offseason race. He bought the election.”

    Another Democratic front-runner, Chicago Alderman Anthony Beale, also took issue with the ads, saying people were “extremely upset” that someone from New York was trying to tell people in Illinois how to vote.

    “That’s what money gets you,” he said after conceding the race. “We earned every vote.”

    Roughly 14 percent of registered voters came to the polls, an estimate Chicago officials called the lowest turnout in decades. Adding to the problem was a blast of wintry weather that snarled traffic and could have kept some voters home.

    But those who did cast ballots indicated that guns, ethics and economic woes were on their minds.

    Mary Jo Higgins of Steger, a south Chicago suburb, said she voted for Halvorson because the former congresswoman was “the only Democrat who believes in the Second Amendment.”

    But Country Club Hills minister Rosemary Gage said she voted for Kelly because she was “standing with (Obama) and trying to get rid of guns.”

    “It’s really bad in Chicago and across the country,” Gage said. “Too many children have died.”

  12. The ban may pass the Senate, but it will never pass the House, at least, not in this election cycle. The liberals are powerless there and are only using their control of the Senate as a bully pulpit from which to push their agenda without actually accomplishing their agenda.

    Having said that, I’ve already contacted all my reps and made it very clear that I will financially support those who support gun rights – and will financially support the opponents of those who oppose gun rights.

  13. Well, in NC news… Bill Cook says he’s going to introduce a bill to extend conceal carry to schools. Walter Jones (US – house) says he’s against all the bills… Kay Hagen (D-senate) keeps sending me a form letter & signing me up for her email list… and Richard Burr (R-Senate) used snail mail to reply… no word yet from him.

  14. Unfortunately the anti-gun nut cases in Congress feel that they have the people on their side, and that now is their time to strike. They were just waiting for a mass shooting like Sandy Hook and they promptly dusted off their plans and bills. With the media on their side the chances of getting a proper hearing before the people are nil. I have contacted my representatives, but I don’t think Durban is going to listen.

    What happened to the people on this site before the election that poo-pooed the idea that Obama would go after our guns. Didn’t they say that,” Well after all his hasn’t done anything at all in his first term”. Where are they now?

    Here is a video of a damn fine man. I am proud to call him a friend and he is also my State Assemblyman. He is also a 28 year veteran of the FBI. If the link doesn’t work go to YOUTUBE and do a search for Jim Sacia. He calls it like he sees it, which is a breath of fresh air in Illinois. http://youtu.be/Acn-8kFZ7Gc

  15. Crap. Buying off elections, super PAC’s, cyber warriors, idiots in Congress pushing un-Constitutional legislation…. the war is coming….

  16. We have the worst President I have ever seen in my entire life. Mayor Bloomberg is so anti gun yet he goes around with a heavily armed detail, so hypocritical. We gun owners are in trouble with the dirty lies this President is throwing out there, this is how he got elected with lies in the first place so he is a master at deception.

    Lets hope the brave elected officials we contacted, the honorable folks will do the right things tomorrow and stand up to these cronies and not vote for such a way out there ban that will do absolutely nothing to make anyone safer just de-arm the American public.

  17. a question…do any of you that comment really understand that many gun owners will use armed resistance and will not comple with ANY laws being imposed state or federal..do you not get it yet..voting out the traitors is not an option..by June 2013 all these laws will be in place …there will be NO peaceful resolution to this infringement..NONE

  18. NY has fallen CO has fallen, MD is about to fall and how many other States are jamming draconian legislation through their State Houses? Narry a round of ammo to be found at the local Dicks, Wal Mart or My local Gun Shop here in Loudoun County, VA. States are gearing up to Ban and register, yet more guns are in civilian hands than ever before and are still flying off the shelves faster than you can re-stock. We have a populace that is armed to the teeth and loaded for bear and a government set to decry us all criminals if we do not comply. How can there be any other outcome except the obvious one at this point?

  19. DiFi Exhibits Lack of Firearms Knowledge. Again. Still.

    Posted on February 27, 2013

    Today we got another peek inside the dank mind of Dianne Feinstein. She sat before a committee rambling on about things she knows absolutely nothing about — firearms. As she was trying to explain why the proposed AWB isn’t about cosmetics, an aide showed this cue card. Take a look at the “barrel shroud”. Yup, Mrs. Feinstein wants to ban front hand guards which she inaccurately calls a “barrel shroud”. This ignorance tops the previous ignorance captured in the proposed AWB bill where she mentions grenade launchers (already banned), rocket launchers (don’t exist) and forward pistol grips on handguns (already banned). This woman knows absolutely nothing about the firearms she’s trying to ban. See the whole sorry display after the jump . . .
    Video display hear below.

  20. I just left a voice mail with Senator Tammy Baldwin’s (D-WI) DC office.

    This is what I said.

    Honorable Senator Baldwin,

    I must urge you to oppose Senator Feinstein’s proposed Assault Weapons Ban of 2013, S. 150. This legislation is a broad and reaching denial of the rights guaranteed us by the US Constitution, and as affirmed by the Supreme Court decisions in DC v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010).

    As a military veteran who served her country honorably, as a responsible, firearm-owning citizen of this country, as a citizen of the state of Wisconsin (where Art. 1, Sect. 25 of our state Constitution explicitly guarantees the right to keep and bear arms for security and defense), and as a voter who has done so in every at-large primary and general election since 2005, I am completely aghast at this power play Ms. Feinstein is putting forth.

    Were this ANY other issue, such as legalizing the use of waterboarding in the US, denying habeus corpus within the borders of the US, silencing dissent in the US, or allowing free reign of warrantless wiretapping, I know you would be on board. I hope that your sense of justice allows you to see that there is no difference between these issues and the point-blank criminalization of firearm owners who do so for legal reasons: recreation, sport, hunting, defense of person, and defense of nation. I also hope you understand that making popular firearms illegal today only makes different firearms popular tomorrow.

    Finally, I find it ironic that the spur of this legislation is an incident, the type of which has killed less children in 33 years than suicide kills in a month. Frankly, we have MUCH bigger fish to fry that ultimately no amount of firearms legislation will stop.

    As a member of the LGBT community like myself, I hope you can see the wisdom in this.

    Sincerely yours,
    blah blah blah

    I asked for a response and thanked her. We’ll see how it goes down.

  21. I suspect that most of us have read Mass for some time, and like all of you i’m proud to be a member of this group.. This is the first time i’ve written, and i hope this helps, or at least encourages others..

    I want to say something about “spirit”.. Not to be confused with the Holy Spirit from our Lord, that guides us as an absolute.. Rather the spirit of independence.. This is the spirit that separated our fore fathers from oppression, and the same spirit that guides us now..a shared part of all of us who have that same spirit of independents..

    Men and Women.. Boys, and Girls.. Pat yourself’s on the back..When and if things go “south” .. and duhh…sorta looks that way doesn’t it.. The number of those who survive will be the same as the number who are prepared..

    I hate fear mongering, and honor those who make an effort to correct the problems we face, rather than ignore them.. so for every gun owner who teaches his family not to live in fear. as well as NOT to live in hate. For every Mom, and Dad that make the hard choice, and save that extra dollar, and for those who have extra to give and do.. (hmm, guess i could do better here myself)..

    For those trying to bring up decent children, who put honor, discipline, and respect before being a kids “friend”.. and for all of you who have made a commitment to protect those you love.. God bless you.. I’m proud to be your friend.

  22. I’d love to write/call my senators. Unfortunately, I live in the great socialist state of Kalifornia and my two senators happen to be dianne feinstein and barbara boxer! Every time I write to feinstein to complain I receive a form letter back thanking me for my support! Boxer and her staff doesn’t even have the decency to reply.

    Man, are we flucked…

  23. As an Englishman living in Australia, I have to take issue with that final sentence, the one that reads “…any bill which includes a provision for registering firearms will be a precursor to confiscation, as it has virtually always been in the past.”

    I don’t see that there’s any “virtually” about it. In my part of the world, many guns have been banned, and although we can still own some types, there’s no real doubt about where we’re heading. It’s death by a thousand cuts. Whatever anyone may say, just look around the world, now and throughout history, to see where registration leads.

    I wish you all the very best of luck.

  24. Folks, 2014 is another opportunity to use the ballot box to vote in gun-friendly legislators. Laws can be repealed. Legislators can be voted out of office. Governors can be recalled. Judges and Presidents can be impeached. The cartridge box is an option, but not yet.

    If anything, the state of affairs concerning gun control should be a wake-up call to those that don’t vote to make up their minds to vote in the next election, and vote for representatives, senators, governors, judges, and a president that is gun-friendly.

  25. I hope y’all take up the fight and don’t back down from the Federal anti-gun bills. Here in Maryland we’re waging a battle just as tough with even more ridiculous items in the bill. SB281 is being heard in the Senate tomorrow while Governor O’Malley(Obama’s twin brother) is holding an Anti-Gun(“Violence Prevention”) rally near the State House. Hopefully the two groups will not meet so no confrontations will occur, but I doubt that’s what the governor has in mind. We have never had “Shall Issue” in this state so there was no reason for licensing to exist, but now simply for the Right to purchase a firearm this bill will require one to hold a license which has a $400 fee, requires 2 sets of fingerprints, and training(acceptable to the ‘authorities’) before applying. That doesn’t even touch on the penalties they have proposed for not registering all existing firearms in one’s possession. And we still will NOT have CCW, although the requirements currently on the books were overturned in court last year(state filed for a stay).

  26. dan, when you say “many gun owners will use armed resistance” you have to understand that many gun owners is not limited to you and your beer buddies and internet forum warriors. in my opinion, many gun owners are law abiding citizens and most likely will abide by whatever asinine laws are put into place. many gun owners are males older than 40 that have been tamed in putting up a fite thanks to their significant other and long for peace and quiet. many gun owners are recreational shooters, competition shooters, hunters and safe queen collectors that would rather stay alive to enjoy their family and friends than make a statement or preserves the rites of an unappreciative future generation. i think armed resistance is an extreme that many gun owners would be embarrassed to acknowledge and reluctant to relate with.

  27. Private sales of a firearm will still happen without a background check. More gun laws weill not solve the problem!

  28. And then there’s this:

    Employees of Obama donor Leo Hindery Jr.’s media conglomerate Intermedia Partners, which now owns most of the top gun-culture media outlets in the country, believe that Hindery plans to gut and destroy all of them as part of a business plan that has already led to numerous layoffs and the virtual shuttering of prominent television production facilities in Minnesota and Montana.

    Hindery, who was in consideration to be President Barack Obama’s secretary of commerce, is managing partner of Intermedia Partners. The New York-based media private equity fund owns Intermedia Outdoor Holdings, which publishes 17 hunting, fishing, and shooting magazines, including Guns & Ammo, Handguns, Gun Dog, Rifle Shooter and Shooting Times.

    InterMedia Outdoor Holdings purchased the pro-gun hunting and fishing network the Sportsman Channel in 2007, and is now in the process of acquiring the Outdoor Channel, pending the federal government’s approval of last month’s merger between InterMedia Outdoors and Outdoor Channel Holdings.

    InterMedia employees believe that Hindery, a Huffington Post blogger who has contributed to numerous Democratic politicians including Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren, is in the process of consolidating all of America’s leading gun-culture media outlets and stripping them down to virtual destruction.


  29. Mas,

    Thanks for another great article, and thanks for sticking your neck out for us. If we continue down the road we are on, expressing opinions against the party line may become dangerous in the future.

    Adolf Hitler didn’t want the Jews in Europe to have guns. Michael Bloomberg doesn’t want the Jews in New York City to have guns. Hmmm.

    I don’t want to live with liberals anymore. Believe it or not, as a Christian, I have more in common with Muslims than I do with liberals! I read the Quran in 1995 and I agreed with two-thirds of it. If the states could vote on controversial issues, like the Tenth Amendment says they should, then I could live in a state where I am comfortable with the laws, and liberals could live in states where they are comfortable with the laws, and we could remain one country. Why should all different types of people have to live under one kind of law?

    KiA, I’m afraid you are right. Hopefully, if the liberals continue to pursue their utopian goals, and are even willing to use violence to get what they want, those passive patriots will gain inspiration from the brave youngsters in our military who have spent the past decade shielding us from foreign enemies on the other side of the world. The least we can do is resist our domestic enemies right here. But that would take a lot of courage and blood.

  30. NY Gun Owners Will Be Treated Like Child Molesters, Killers

    Posted on March 2, 2013

    By Eddie Devir

    Under New York’s Orwellian-monikered SAFE Act, having a magazine with a capacity of more than a 10 rounds is now defined as criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, a “Class D Violent Felony.” So soon, having a 13-round magazine stashed in the back of a drawer or a 10-rounder downloaded to only eight rounds rather than the legal limit of seven and you’re pinched. How does this grave offense against society compare with other crimes in the Empire State? Here’s a sample of similar hijinks that will also get you tagged with a class D violent felony wrap . . .

    1.Rape in the Second Degree – § 130.30
    2.Course of sexual conduct against a child in the second degree – § 130.80
    3.Reckless assault of a child – § 120.02
    4.Aggravated sexual abuse in the third degree – § 130.66

    Which means that 13-round mag or a too-full ten-rounder in your possession will be a more serious offense than these simple Class D felonies (a step less serious that the Class D Violent variety):
    1.A.Promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child – § 263.10
    2.B. Promoting a sexual performance by a child – § 263.15
    3.C. Reckless endangerment in the first degree – § 120.25
    4.D. Vehicular manslaughter in the second degree – § 125.12

    Or these Class E Violent Felonies (one step below Class D):
    1.Persistent sexual abuse – § 130.53
    2.Aggravated sexual abuse in the fourth degree – § 130.65-a

    Or these simple Class E no-nos:
    1.Luring a child – § 120.70
    2.Use of a child to commit a controlled substance offense- § 220.28
    3.Possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child – § 263.11
    4.Possessing a sexual performance by a child – § 263.16

    So there you have it. Carry one too many rounds (or only seven in a mag that’s — oops! — too capacious) and what you’ve done is considered as bad molesting a child. And it’s worse than vehicular manslaughter — yes, where someone has died. That’s what now passes as common sense gun law in the state of New York.

  31. What I’ve found out about the Outdoor Channel alarm I posted on the other day: Here’s what Michael Bane has to say:

    “RE: the Internet rumor that we’re headed to an outdoor media apocalypse, yesterday afternoon I spoke to the CEO of OUTDOOR CHANNEL and Jim Shepherd spoke with my old friend Jeff Paro, top guy at InterMedia. It is just that, an Internet rumor. Note that it was promulgated by an unnamed ex-employee…cops would call that a “clue.” Simple truth, we’re always under hellish budget pressure…can we make ’em faster and cheaper? That’s television these days, and we all live with it.”

  33. One of the biggest threats to gun ownership is apathetic gun owners. During the 2012 election, I heard too many gun owners who said that Romney was just as bad about gun control as Obama (he wasn’t) and that Obama wasn’t going to do anything about gun control his second term. Before his second term even began, he made it a top priority of his administration.

    Many of these same people think that nothing will come of current gun control efforts. Wake up! Draconian new gun regulations are already taking hold across the country, and the dems are making a full court press to institute them nationally. If they could make Obamacare happen despite the stiff opposition, stricter gun control will be a breeze post-Sandy Hook.

    If firmly united, gun owners in this country could make an unstoppable voting bloc. But too many of us are either avoiding the issue or believe that it won’t affect us because we don’t own “that type of gun”. Gun control is coming, and once it takes hold, it won’t stop until all guns are confiscated.

    We need to wake up and band together.
