- HOAX EXPOSED: Full Clip Of … by Glenn At New…
SEE THAT CLIVEN BUNDY IS ACTUALLY AN ADVOCATE FOR BLACKS, HISPANICS – a poor advocate…but he was trying to saying something about the Federal Government’s role in keeping minorities down. Unfortunately, he is not very articulate.
Watch Bundy explain how we need to keep things from going backwards for blacks, and how the Federal government has created a neo-slave class via entitlement dependency that is so bad it is arguably worse than plantation slavery was.
It is 100% clear that Cliven Bundy is not saying that blacks should be slaves picking cotton, but that the Federal government has created conditions for them so terrible, that their current situation may actually be worse. (If you are person of low intelligence, the fact that that is his point might be too hard for you to understand.) And he’s not blaming blacks for the issues of abortions, and crime and broken families, he’s blaming the Feds.
H/T Velvet Hammer VIA IRONIC SURREALISM
Now watch the edited version of Bundy’s remarks as promoted by the left-wing Media Matters and as reported in the NY Times:
When will these scumbags be held accountable for their vicious campaign of deceit?
- NRA seeks universal gun law… by Glenn At New…
With concealed weapons now legal in all 50 states, the National Rifle Association’s focus at this week’s annual meeting is less about enacting additional state protections than on making sure the permits already issued still apply when the gun owners travel across the country.
The nation’s largest gun-rights group, which officially opens its meeting of about 70,000 people Friday in Indianapolis, wants Congress to require that concealed weapons permits issued in one state be recognized everywhere, even when the local requirements differ. Advocates say the effort would eliminate a patchwork of state-specific regulations that lead to carriers unwittingly violating the law when traveling.
“Right now it takes some legal research to find out where you are or are not legal depending on where you are,” said Guy Relford, an attorney who has sued communities for violating an Indiana law that bars local gun regulation. “I don’t think that’s right.”
Opponents fear the measure would allow more lenient gun regulations to trump stricter ones when permit holders travel across state lines.
“It’s a race to the bottom,” said Brian Malte, senior national policy director for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “It’s taking the lowest standards.”
The push for reciprocity comes as the gun rights lobby is arguably stronger than ever before, with more than 5 million dues-paying members.
The NRA has successfully defeated numerous gun-control efforts in recent years, even after the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. With midterm elections looming, the organization’s legislative wish list likely will be somewhat more modest than usual this year.
The “reciprocity” effort on state concealed carry laws has strong support from Senate Republicans but narrowly missed being amended into last year’s proposed expansion of gun sale background checks. Still, it faces long odds in Washington because Democrats control the Senate and White House.
Following a federal judge’s ruling striking down Illinois’ ban on concealed weapons, the Legislature last summer passed the nation’s final law allowing them.
- KANSAS GOVERNOR SIGNS BILL … by Glenn At New…
On April 23rd, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill “nullifying city and county gun restrictions” to ensure that it is legal to “openly carry firearms” throughout the state.
The law takes effect on July 1.
According to cjonline.com, the law will “sweep away restrictions on open carry.” It will also “prevent cities and counties from enacting restrictions on firearm sales or how guns are stored or transported.”
Supporters of the law say it will correct “a patchwork of local regulations [that have] infringed on gun-ownership rights.”
- Georgia’s New Gun Law Will … by Glenn At New…
Its official name is the “Safe Carry Protection Act.”
But critics are calling it the “Guns Everywhere Bill.”
At noon Wednesday, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is scheduled to sign the sweeping legislation into law. One of the most permissive state gun laws in the nation, it will allow licensed owners to carry firearms into more public places than at any time in the past century, including churches, bars and government buildings that don’t have security checkpoints.
The law also authorizes school districts to appoint staffers to carry firearms. It allows churches to “opt-in” if they want to allow weapons. Bars could already “opt-in” to allow weapons, but under the new law they must opt out if they want to bar weapons. Permit-holders who accidentally bring a gun to an airport security checkpoint will now be allowed to pick up their weapon and leave with no criminal penalty. (At Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, a record 111 guns were found at TSA screening areas last year.)
Americans for Responsible Solutions, the group co-founded by former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords, has called the legislation “the most extreme gun bill in America,” and mounted an aggressive campaign against it. So have other gun-control organizations, including Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group started by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Frank Rotondo, the executive director of the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, has blasted the law. “Police officers do not want more people carrying guns on the street,” said Rotondo, “particularly police officers in inner city areas.” (Translation: We Fear Legally Armed Minorities – Glenn)
But Georgia state Rep. Rick Jasperse (R.-Jasper), who introduced the bill, insisted that it was not “extreme,” adding that it was simply about restoring Second Amendment rights and allowing licensed gun owners to carry their weapons in more places.
“When we limit a Georgian’s ability to carry a weapon — to defend themselves — we’re empowering the bad guys,” Jasperse said.
- Virginia Gun Owner Facing 1… by Glenn At New…
A Virginia CHP holder, Guy Ackerman, inadvertently brought a handgun with him into NJ.
He discovered the gun in his car and rather than leave it in there with valet parking, he took the unloaded revolver to his room and locked it in the room safe. The valet had noticed the gun when it was in the car and told the police, who arrested Guy and charged him with unlawful weapon possession – a felony in NJ.
The prosecutor is refusing to allow Guy an option to avoid jail time, an option that is normally available in such cases.
Guy is really in a tough spot. If he takes the prosecutor’s current “deal,” Guy will spend one year in prison before being able to apply for parole. If denied, he will have to serve up to three years. If he rejects the idea of a “guilty” plea and is found guilty in a trial, he then faces a minimum jail sentence of between five and ten years.
- Poll: Colorado Voters Oppos… by Glenn At New…
A Quinnipiac University poll released April 23rd shows Colorado voters oppose the stricter gun control Democrats instituted last year and support arming school teachers.
According to the poll, Colorado voters oppose last year’s gun control by a margin of 56 to 39 percent.
Quinnipiac shows a “trend” of growing opposition to the gun control measures–especially to the ban on “high-capacity” magazines–since August 2013.
Conversely, voters support “allowing teachers and school officials to carry guns on school grounds” by a margin of 51 to 45 percent.
- The First Amendment Guide t… by Glenn At New…
Back in 1995, the Tennessee Law Review published a symposium issue on the Second Amendment and firearms policy. That symposium was probably the most influential law review symposium ever published on the topic. (More on that issue, below.) This year, the Tennessee Law Review is doing another Second Amendment symposium. My contribution to the forthcoming issue is The First Amendment Guide to the Second Amendment.
As the article explains, post-Heller courts have frequently looked to the First Amendment for guidance on Second Amendment questions. This is sensible, because since the Supreme Court began taking the First Amendment seriously about 75 years ago, a rich body of precedent has been developed. The First and Second Amendments both safeguard natural, pre-existing human rights, whereas Amendments 4-8 are mainly controls on particular government processes, and Amendments 9-10 are interpretive rules.
Part I of the article explains how the Supreme Court in Heller and McDonald used First Amendment tools and analogies to help resolve Second Amendment issues. This was consistent with several earlier Supreme Court cases, which treated the First and Second Amendments in pari materia.
- Chicago Weatherman Sends a … by Glenn At New…
The Windy City is supposed to be the model of gun control the rest of the nation should follow to keep our streets safe. They have guns laws that make California look like Texas. The only problem is, those pesky criminals don’t follow the laws and Chicago is a bloody war zone. Over the Easter weekend, 9 people were shot to death with another 36 wounded by gunfire.
Enter Paul Konrad. He’s the morning news meteorologist for WGN. Now you wouldn’t expect that a local weatherman would have much to say about gun control or the violence that is tearing the city apart, but you’d be wrong. He tweeted out this:
Wow, someone in the media admitting that criminals, not guns, are the problem. This is almost a shocking as if it flowed from the fingertips of a liberal. I don’t know what Mr. Konrad’s political affiliation is, but he displays the capacity for rational thought, so let’s assume he’s not a democrat.

- NYPD’s Friendly Twitter Has… by Glenn At New…
The New York Police Department tried its hand at social outreach on Twitter Tuesday, deploying what was supposed to be a feel-good #MyNYPD hashtag.
The social media campaign backfired almost immediately, with users instead tweeting photos of instances of alleged police brutality by NYPD officers.
The hashtag hijacking has since gone viral. It should be noted, though, that not all the images being passed around are instances of real police brutality and many lack context.
