“After years of complaints by all but the most ardent anti-gun activists, New York City’s insanely strict gun laws are finally being exposed for the unconstitutional mess they are after two separate incidents in December in which tourists, with all the proper permits from their home states, were arrested for possessing firearms…”

- Another One of Bloomturd… by Glenn At New…
Town of Barker, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Former Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan (D) is facing harassment charges after a fight in a town of Barker bar last week.
According to New York State Police in Kirkwood, the fight happened at Davy’s Last Chance Saloon on Route 12 on Wednesday, August 20, just before 7:35 p.m.
- CCRKBA CHIEF SAYS BLOOMTURD… by Glenn At New…
Today’s revelation that Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown for Gun Safety” lobbying organization has donated another million dollars to the already-swollen Initiative 594 campaign war chest confirms that a “handful of billionaires” are intent on buying the November election, and along with it, the privacy rights of Washington State citizens, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.
“It’s looking more like ‘Every Billionaire for Gun Control’ wants to buy this election,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Voters should be very concerned when wealthy elitists like Bloomberg believe that their civil rights are for sale.
“If they can buy your gun rights today,” he questioned, “what other rights will they go after tomorrow? Maybe your right to drink soda, or decide what you want to eat. Or maybe they will try to buy your right to petition the government, or your freedom to assemble and associate with like-minded friends and neighbors.”
Bloomberg is not the only billionaire backing I-594, the 18-page gun control measure on the November ballot. Advertised as a so-called “universal background check” proposal for gun sales, I-594 goes much farther, requiring data collection on all handgun transfers, including loans and gifts to friends, neighbors and in-laws with only a few narrow exceptions for immediate family members.
Even people who have concealed pistol licenses, and have passed background checks, are not exempt from this unworkable measure, nor are police officers and sheriffs’ deputies.
“The state’s largest and most respected law enforcement organizations, representing more than 7,500 rank-and-file officers, oppose I-594,” Gottlieb noted. “The billionaires are trying to drown the opposition with a flood of money. In addition to Bloomberg, billionaires Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Ballmer and Nick Hanauer have invested small fortunes in their juggernaut campaign to buy the election.
“No one elected these people to control your life,” Gottlieb warned. “That is especially true with Bloomberg. I’ll remind every citizen of the state that you have a vote in this election, and Michael Bloomberg doesn’t, because he doesn’t live in Washington. He just wants to buy it.”
- The Night Before (ObamaR… by Glenn At New…
2014 will be a year when the populations of the world began to wake up and smell the smoke. “Began” because sleep has habits all its own. It would be unnatural if Mr and Mrs Joe Average didn’t hit the alarm snooze button because the ringing they hear doesn’t correspond with the familiar. It isn’t time for office yet; the Home Depot’s still closed and Jimmy’s soccer practice is still at 10 am. ”Honey will you get up and answer the door. There are some bearded men outside the window and I think they want something.”
But it may be no dream. David Cameron just warned Britain to brace for a possible ISIS attack on its shores. The jayvee ISIS team Obama scoffed at sure gets around. Cameron says ISIS ‘is more dangerous than al-Qaeda’. The doorman the president contemptuously glowered over at the summits is acting uppity too. That doorman, Vladimir Putin, has just used the “N” word in Ukraine. The “N” word being “Nuclear”.
Russia’s president, speaking at a pro-Kremlin youth camp at a lake near Moscow, said “it’s best not to mess with us,” adding “I want to remind you that Russia is one of the leading nuclear powers”
And maybe nuclear ain’t enough neither. Foreign Policy writes that “buried in a Dell computer captured in Syria are lessons for making bubonic plague bombs and missives on using weapons of mass destruction.” If they can get it, they’ll use it. So far the enemy’s — can we use that word yet? — wrath has been limited only by capability and not by intent. That capability has just increased exponentially. The Long War Journal says radical Islam is seizing territory. Territory gives them a secure base, legitimacy and the resources of a country.
- THE DOMESTIC ISIS THREAT: W… by Glenn At New…
I am sometimes astounded at the fools that are charged with running the most powerful countries on earth. Well…OK…more than sometimes. They keep making the same assumptions and the same mistakes. The issue of the moment of course, is ISIS. The new Al Queda, or so it seems. One wonders if the USA had acted otherwise, and followed a more “distance from disorder” mode, if ISIS would have ever come to be, but that is for debate another time.
The debate is now about the ISIS threat to the western world. Here is what we know.
1). The existence of the USA is always going to be a threat to groups like ISIS. They see the world in two distinct sections. Ours incidentally is the world of the infidels and its their job…if they believe what they are told by their leaders…to make war upon us. Whether for political reasons, religious reasons, or a combination of the two, it is clear and has been since 1492 – we can’t get along with those guys.
2). Many on our side see themselves are Johnny Good-Citizen or Sally-Sunday-School who will never lie, cheat, or steal, much less discriminate against anyone just because its their belief that Johnny and Sally should die by beheading. Sally and Johnny incidentally raise their little darlings to be equally accepting and non-judgmental, and to play with Barney the Dinosaur.
- Judicial Watch: A Terrorist… by Glenn At New…
Government watchdog Judicial Watch published a post today that the group says is based on conversations with multiple government officials.
Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.
El Paso is Texas’ sixth-largest city.
- Allegations surface that Mi… by Glenn At New…
Got News filed a lawsuit against St. Louis County court today to obtain the juvenile arrest records of Michael Brown after the court denied his request. Brown was killed in a controversial altercation with Officer Darren Wilson.
Got News editor-in-chief Charles C. Johnson was told by two different law enforcement sources from St. Louis that Brown had a juvenile arrest record but that that report has been kept from the public.
There are rumors that Brown was also a member of the Crips, a notorious gang and that his death may have even brought two gangs—the Crips and the Bloods—together.
- Charges DISMISSED for gun r… by Glenn At New…
A Nashville judge has dismissed charges against a man who walked around downtown last year wearing a bullet-proof vest and carrying an assault rifle with a silencer.
Leonard Embody has carried out a series of similarly provocative, but legal, actions in recent years and says he has no plans to stop.
The recent charges stem from a July 29, 2013, incident where Embody was arrested after he refused to answer questions from police. Officers also confiscated his AR-15, which was in a case made of moldable plastic that exactly fit the outline of the weapon with a magazine and silencer attached. Once the case was opened, police found the weapon was unloaded and there was no magazine, but there was a silencer.
On Thursday, Judge Randall Wyatt ordered that the rifle, case and silencer be returned to Embody. The order came two days after a ruling in which Wyatt admonished Embody for his conduct but found he had not violated state law.
Embody has been detained for similar actions in the past and has had his handgun carry permit revoked by the state, although he has not been convicted of any crime related to those actions. They include hiking around Radnor Lake State Park with an AK-47-style pistol in 2009 and walking around the upscale Nashville suburb of Belle Meade with a .44-caliber black powder revolver in his hand in 2010. He also has been stopped in at least three similar incidents.
- Washington D.C. Is Going to… by Glenn At New…
Federal Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr previously ruled, “…there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny.”
Apparently, the judge’s crystal clear ruling contains confusing diction for the anti-gunners trying to stop it:
City Council Chairman Phil Mendelson said, “…there’s a gray area between 100-percent ban and everybody can carry. And that’s what we’re working through.”
Don’t let this victory be all for not. Appeals mean a new wave of attorney’s fees and court costs. Please help us finish off this landmark victory for our Second Amendment Rights.
SELECT HERE TO ENSURE A SECOND AMENDMENT FOUNDATION VICTORY IN OUR NATION’S CAPITAL!
The councilman continued, “The whole issue of the public carrying of a firearm is very complicated. And I believe the executive and the attorney general will continue with the appeal. What the court said very clearly was that a complete 100-percent ban on anybody being able to get a license to carry a handgun was unconstitutional.”
Soon after the original landmark ruling, Judge Schullin issued a 90 day stay of implementation of his ruling. Now, the city is asking for an additional six months to rewrite their gun laws.
Ever since the 2008 Heller ruling by the Supreme Court, the District of Columbia has carried on a campaign of red tape and regulation to discourage citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights. This has included bearing arms outside the home for personal protection.
Washington, D.C. is not some political gulag, but the seat of government in a land of free people. A cornerstone of that freedom is the right to keep and bear arms, and where better to exercise that right than in the nation’s capital?
We have no intention of letting anti-gun city officials further delay the ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their rights. As Dr. Martin Luther King said, ‘A right delayed is a right denied.’
SAF lawsuits have overturned laws not only in Washington D.C., but in several states including Illinois, California, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nebraska, and cities like San Francisco, Seattle, Des Moines and New Haven, among others. Threats of SAF lawsuits have removed well over 100 anti-gun-rights laws across the country as well as stopping hundreds more from being enacted.
We are focusing our efforts on getting rid of unconstitutional violations of firearms owners’ civil rights in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, California and other states.
SAF’s record of legal victories on behalf of the right to keep and bear arms has set the bar for all current and future firearms civil rights litigation. This is not SAF’s last step, but only the latest, in our efforts to win back firearms freedom, one lawsuit at a time.
- Is There a ‘Debate’ Now Ove… by Glenn At New…
The Wall Street Journal reports that there is a new “debate” over firearms, in the wake of a terrible fatal accident at a gun range this week.
The death of a shooting instructor at an Arizona gun range when a 9-year-old girl lost control of a powerful automatic weapon has raised the issue of age limits at such operations.
The girl, on vacation with her parents at the Last Stop shooting range in White Hills, Ariz., accidentally shot and killed the instructor, 39-year-old Charles Vacca, while firing an Uzi submachine gun Monday, officials said. The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said the gun’s recoil sent the weapon over the girl’s head, its bullets striking Mr. Vacca, who stood next to her.
Mr. Vacca, who was shot in the head, was airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, where he died from his injuries Monday evening, the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
Video of the incident released by the sheriff’s office shows Mr. Vacca adjusting the girl’s stance and then saying, “All right, now go ahead and give me one shot,” apparently before the gun was set on fully automatic. With her back to the camera, the girl successfully fires a single round at a target.
“All right, full auto,” Mr. Vacca then says before the girl releases a series of shots, apparently losing control of the gun before the video ends.
The shooting touched off a debate on social media among gun-control advocates, parents and gun-rights supporters, with many questioning why the girl’s parents would let her fire such a powerful weapon.
I’m about as pro-Second Amendment as one can get, but this was irresponsible. The instructor evidently had the girl fire a single shot from the Uzi before telling her to go full auto. If that’s standard practice, then the practice needs to change.
- NAACP Wants Police With AR-… by Glenn At New…
The Compton chapter of the NAACP is demanding that the Compton Unified School District rescind a new policy allowing campus police officers to carry AR-15 rifles while patrolling school grounds.
Compton’s school board approved the new policy last month, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Campus cops who carry the semi-automatic weapons must receive special training first. Also, “carry” is a very strong word. School district officials have indicated the officers will actually keep the aggressive-looking rifles in the trunks of their patrol cars until some event arises in which the guns are needed.
Nevertheless, the NAACP strongly opposes the policy.
