- A Gun Ownership Primer: The… by Glenn At New…
TIMES HAVE CHANGED, and not for the better. Wide-open borders admit terrorists, but even when jihadists are captured, the Secretary of Homeland Security denies it, and then denies they’re jihadists. What is apparently a justified shooting of a robber by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer sparks massive rioting, reminding Americans of how fragile race relations have become. On top of this, the very real threat of governmental tyranny, compounded by the serial lying of the President and virtually everyone in his administration is a stark reminder that we are, in every way that matters, on our own.
Barack Obama wants several legacies, but the legacy he absolutely does not want, yet the legacy that will, ironically, stay with him, is the title of best firearm salesman in history. The age of Obama has seen an unprecedented increase in the sales of firearms and ammunition by Americans not previously noted as likely gun owners.
When Americans can no longer trust their government, they realize they have to trust themselves. Fast and Furious, Benghzi, Obamacare, the IRS, the EPA, the CDC, all scandals, all covered in lies, but only a few of the scandals that pop up around President Obama like dandelions in a neglected lawn.
Even progressives have begun to understand that the government doesn’t actually want to provide for all their needs, and that even if it did, it couldn’t. They have begun to understand that this extends to protecting their lives, and they too have begun buying guns—even though only a short time ago they demonized them and their owners—for the first time in their lives.
With this in mind, I’ve produced a series of articles that will be posted over the upcoming weeks and months. These articles are a sort of primer, a set of basic questions and answers about the philosophy, practical issues and effects, the law, and the reality of gun ownership.
- GoDaddy Founder Bob Parsons… by Glenn At New…
GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons rarely shies away from controversy–even when wading into the contentious debate over gun violence in this country.
Parsons, a gun owner and member of the National Rifle Association, says that firearms aren’t to blame for mass shootings. That’s a hotly-debated and emotional topic, especially after a gunman killed 20 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.
Since then, some states have tightened gun laws, while more have loosened them. Meanwhile, businesses from Starbucks to Target have asked customers not to bring weapons into their stores. More than 32,300 people died as a result of gun violence in 2011, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Parsons, who once famously filmed his shooting of an elephant during a vacation in Zimbabwe, called recent school shootings “terrible,” but says the weapons aren’t to blame for those deaths.
“Until we have a mechanism or a way that we can track people that have mental problems and are a real danger to society, you’re going to continue to have this stuff–whether they use guns, whether they use knives, fire, whatever they use,” he said during a video interview at the Inc. 5000 conference in Phoenix last week.
- Dana Loesch: Women Have Alw… by Glenn At New…
On Tuesday, Dana Loesch appeared on Fox and Friends to promote her new book, “Hands Off My Gun” as well as to talk topics of the day. During the interview, Dana talked about gun rights, and specifically the New York SAFE Act and the danger of giving bureaucrats the power and authority to simply declare a person unfit to exercise their Second Amendment rights.
“This all part of the New York SAFE Act, which kind of terrifies me. because that New York SAFE Act is a Pandora’s Box of government regulation, and I get into that a little bit in my book ‘Hands Off My Gun’. This law, these people, 34,000 people have not been mentally, they’ve not been adjudicated to be mentally unfit. These are a lot of people who have never seen their day in court, they never get to face their accusers. There is a process by which someone can be deprived of their second amendment right, and when you can be anonymously accused by a health professional or a health worker of being mentally unfit, and put on this list, that’s a little unfair. And there are even medical professionals here in New York who say there are too many people on this list.”
In asking Dana for her perspective, host Steve Doocy asked about a “slippery slope.” An article at The Right Scoop a few months ago pondered the same thing.
- Guess What Ferguson Police … by Glenn At New…
Missouri state Senator Jamilah Nasheed, a Democrat who has sponsored several “anti-gun” bills in her state, was arrested Monday night during a protest outside of the Ferguson Police Department. However, it’s what police officers found on her that is raising eyebrows.
Nasheed was carrying a loaded 9mm handgun and extra rounds of ammunition, according to Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson. She also refused to take a breathalyzer test after officers determined she “smelled strongly of intoxicants,” sources told KMOV-TV.
Nasheed claimed on Tuesday that she was not intoxicated at the time of her arrest and emphasized that she is a legal concealed carry permit holder.
Police arrested and charged the state senator with failure to obey lawful order of police and manner of walking in the roadway after she and other protesters refused to get out of the street.
On Tuesday morning, Nasheed said it was a “symbolic arrest” to send a “message to the protesters that we can protest peacefully and that we must protest peacefully and that we want justice for Michael Brown.”

- Catching A Glimpse Of Ameri… by Glenn At New…
On Oct. 12 the good people of Ferguson, Missouri, continued to protest the unjustified shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown by municipal police officer Darren Wilson. Seventeen people were arrested for participating in an unlawful assembly outside a convenience store, and the following day, 50 others were arrested as part of an organized “Moral Monday” protest challenging St. Louis’ casual acceptance of police violence and brutality. Earlier this month, protesters disrupted a bastion of white elitism — a performance of the St. Louis symphony — as well as an event decidedly less elite: a St. Louis Cardinal’s game.
Discontent over the shooting of Michael Brown is not subsiding. It has seemingly evolved into a larger movement aimed at questioning the broader foundations of the system of structural inequality that black and brown men and women face every day. Indeed, it has broken out into the larger culture as a renewed debate over inequality in general in the contemporary United States. As is usually the case in the farce that passes for American political culture these days, perhaps the most interesting arena to watch this play out was not on any actual news program, but on a recent episode of “The Daily Show” in which host Jon Stewart and guest Bill O’Reilly discussed the concept of white privilege.
Laughs were had by all of course, but the comic jabs between Stewart and O’Reilly paper over an admittedly grim reality. A recent study carried out by the journalism nonprofit ProPublica, for instance, finds that black teens are 21 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than their white counterparts. The report’s authors came to this conclusion by examining FBI data accumulated on the topic between 2010 and 2012, which showed that for teens aged 15 to 19, the rate at which black youngsters were gunned down by the boys in blue stood at 31.17 per million, while that for their white counterparts are just 1.47 per million. Even accounting for the higher crime rate of black teens, which itself is heavily inflated by the racial bias that pervades our juvenile justice system, the disparity in police killings of black teens is still far, far higher than one would expect if no bias were at work.
- Dems Use Ebola To Push For … by Glenn At New…
More than two dozen House Democrats are pushing the Senate to revive and ratify the nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy to a critical post, but helping to fight deadly disease is not what they have in mind.
The question of the day is why we have or need an Ebola czar in the form of political operative/hack Ron Klain when we have an unfilled surgeon general’s position that physician emeritus serving as America’s doctor is supposed to fill.
We have an acting Surgeon General, Rear Admiral Boris Lushniak, but he is seemingly just a placeholder instead of the force that a confirmed Surgeon General can and should be.
The surgeon general could be a respected face and voice in the fight against Ebola, a role that has defaulted to Dr. Tom Frieden of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), he of the protocols etched in Jell-O who is probably still rethinking his approach to the disease.
The answer from Democrats is — wait for it — it’s the Republicans’ fault, since President Obama’s nominee to the post, Dr. Vivek Murthy, president and co-founder of Doctors for America, was stopped in his tracks by Senate Republicans and vulnerable red-state Democrats.
- NEW UK GUN POLICY SHOULD BE… by Glenn At New…
A new policy announced by the British Home Office recently to allow unannounced searches of the homes of registered British gun owners should raise alarms among Americans who are threatened with increasingly restrictive gun laws pushed by wealthy anti-gunners including billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
“This is an alarming development in Great Britain,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “and it ought to serve as a warning to American gun owners and Constitutional activists concerned not only with their Second Amendment rights but also their Fourth Amendment rights. In Washington state, where CCRKBA is headquartered, there have already been attempts to include such language in so-called ‘assault weapons’ ban legislation.
“There are also privacy concerns about Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure requiring background checks on nearly all firearms transfers,” he added, “ including temporary loans and gifts to friends and in-laws. All too frequently, we’ve heard the gun prohibition lobby urge adoption of gun laws and regulations like those in the United Kingdom, and now we can see what they’re ultimately after.”
According to Fox News, prior to the new regulations, British gun owners were subject to visits by the authorities. However, these required prior notification. The new policy does not.
“British authorities argue that the new policy is necessary based on so-called ‘intelligence’ indicating a specific threat,” Gottlieb observed, “but there is considerable danger in this revision because such guidelines could be easily abused.
“We are living in an era when government, under the rather broad arguments of national and local security, is becoming ever more intrusive,” he continued. “Our delineated civil rights, at least in America, include the right to keep and bear arms, and the example now coming from Great Britain is that this right is being systematically eroded to the point that it is becoming a heavily-regulated privilege.
“Let this be a warning to tens of millions of law-abiding American gun owners,” Gottlieb concluded. “What’s happening now in the United Kingdom will be touted as the next ‘common sense’ step for gun control in the United States. Just because someone exercises their right to keep and bear arms should not be an excuse to nullify their right to privacy.”

An Arizona county party official said he saw a man stuffing “hundreds” of ballots into the ballot box and later told a local news outlet the entire incident was caught on surveillance video.
“A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona T-shirt dropped a large box of hundreds of early ballots on the table and started stuffing the ballot box as I watched in amazement,” said A.J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party.
