Virginia Gun Owner Facing 10 Years in Jail In NJ For Accidentally Bringing A Gun Into The State

Hand Cuffed

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.

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.

Whoa There: Commie De Blasio’s Horse Drawn Carriage Ban has stalled (Criminal has been exposed)

Published on: April 22, 2014

Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City’s horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years.

A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues. And as he nears his fourth month in office, he has encountered enough resistance from the usually compliant City Council to slow his plans again, now saying an industry he calls cruel and inhumane will be gone by year’s end.

What changed?

For one, a media blitz led by actor Liam Neeson has portrayed the horse-drawn carriage industry as an iconic, romantic part of New York that provides about 400 jobs, many to Irish immigrants. In a series of editorials and TV interviews, he has said the operators treat their 200 working horses like their own children.

Wrong is the New Right: How The Police State Lost its Mind…

Identity politics made rights competitive. The only way to win is to play. And the only way to play is to claim oppression. And if you don’t do a good job of it, good luck getting a good spot in the diversity quotas for college, business and government. But it has also made rights meaningless.

The new slogan is that gun control should be enacted because the former Congresswoman Giffords “deserves a vote”. Giffords already has a vote. So do millions of gun owners. That’s how it works. But votes are no longer weighed equally. The oppressed, even by a random shooting spree, get more votes than others, so long as their oppression is officially recognized and endorsed. The Giffords Vote is supposed to not only trump millions of actual votes, but also the Second Amendment.

Supreme Court still considering New Jersey CCW rights case

The United States Supreme Court is still evaluating a case that would define rights related to concealed gun permits in New Jersey and potentially across the country.

The case of Drake v. Jerejian was expected to be heard in private conference by the nine Justices last Friday. Orders were issued today and the Drake case wasn’t among those cases denied or accepted by the Court.

A petition was filed with the Court in January. The petitioners, led by attorney Alan Gura, want answers to two questions: whether the Second Amendment secures a right to carry handguns outside of the home for self-defense and if New Jersey officials violated that right by requiring people to prove a “justifiable need” for carrying a handgun for self-defense outside their homes.

Gura has argued that four federal district courts, along with several state supreme courts, have ruled that the Second Amendment extends the right to carry handguns to outside of the home for self-defense, while several other federal courts have disagreed.

The Third Circuit was among the courts that decided self-defense rights were restricted to inside the home, and it upheld New Jersey’s “justifiable need” law.

Bloomturd’s New Gun-Grabber Group Wants to Invade Gun Owners’ Homes

Driving on our roads is a privilege regulated at the state level through licensing.

Gun ownership is a civil right guaranteed in the Constitution.

Those facts in mind, let’s have a look at another of Everytown’s propaganda graphics.

That graphic implies quite a lot. If Bloomberg were to get his way, police or some other government agency would be mandated to step into gun owners’ homes at regular intervals to keep tabs on the firearms and the people in those homes.

Gun Owners Shred NY SAFE Act Forms on Registration Deadline Day

Published on: April 22, 2014

Governor Andrew Cuomo found defiance instead of compliance this week in New York as gun owners showed him just what they think of his “SAFE” Act. Tuesday marked the deadline for gun owners to register their “assault weapons” under the anti-gun legislation. But, they had a slightly different way of marking the occasion:

Roughly 70 opponents of the law who gathered outside the Walter J. Mahoney State Office Building in downtown Buffalo late Tuesday afternoon to shred State Police registration forms for assault weapons.

So, why is this law so unpopular? Well, barring the fact that “assault weapon” is merely a political term, the SAFE Act has already resulted in 1,200 felony charges. Turns out New Yorkers don’t like legislation that essentially turns them from law-abiding citizens using their right to bear arms one day, and criminals the next.

BLOOMTURD INSANELY WRONG THINKING HE CAN BUY HIS WAY TO HEAVEN

Billionaire former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s revelation that he thinks he has already earned a spot in Heaven with his campaigns to destroy the Second Amendment proves just how arrogant and delusional he has become with his riches, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

Bloomberg, quoted by the New York Times discussing his latest gun control effort, dubbed “Everytown for Gun Safety,” said, “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb called the remark “outrageous and revealing.”

“One does not earn his way into Heaven by trampling on the civil rights of his fellow citizens,” Gottlieb observed. “Bloomberg can’t buy himself a spot inside the Pearly Gates by using his riches to erode the freedoms of people who do not enjoy his affluence.”

The anti-gun former New York mayor launched a $50 million project using a slickly-produced video to push viewers’ emotional hot buttons. He boasted that he will target politicians who oppose his anti-gun demagoguery. It is this sort of activity that Bloomberg believes will get him a front row seat in the hereafter.

“The next thing we’re likely to hear from Bloomberg is that after he waltzes into Heaven, he intends to replace God and make himself the new CEO,” Gottlieb remarked. “This man’s head is growing faster than the halo he thinks he will be wearing after he checks out of his earthly environs.

“I have a piece of bad news for Mr. Bloomberg,” he concluded. “The real estate market in Heaven for his kind of self-aggrandizing pomposity dried up long ago. However, we’re certain that if he continues to throw his money around to deprive honest citizens of their God-given liberties and human rights, he’s far more likely to spend eternity pulling weeds behind a shack in a place where it is always hot and there isn’t any shade.”

Five ways gun control advocates fail

Leftist propaganda website Think Progress is trying to jump on Bloomberg’s latest bandwagon by offering up a shamelessly dishonest op-ed, “5 Ways Gun Safety Advocates Are Using The NRA’s Playbook Against It“:

“Reward lawmakers who vote with you; punish those who don’t. Core to the NRA strategy is to reward those legislators who take positive action and positions on gun reform — and punish those who don’t, even when they otherwise align politically. This longtime tactic is one gun safety groups have historically stayed away from, and it is the one Everytown has been most explicit about duplicating from the NRA …”

This simply is not true. Antigun organizations did try to engage in electioneering activity just like NRA, but failed miserably at it because their endorsements mean nothing as they do not represent a voting block.

“Deploy your members to every town hall, where they can hijack the conversation. The NRA has long employed its members to turn out and make gun rights an issue — everywhere they go … Gun safety groups have already started to play this game over the past year …”

This is misleading. NRA members and supporters turn up at town hall meetings on their own accord, not at some direction from NRA HQ. Gunnies have grassroots, antis have astroturf.

Simpering Glen Beck Compares Bundy Protesters to Occupy Protesters

Glen Beck is one of those media personalities that makes sense a lot of the time, but occasionally he tends to veer out into left field. Yesterday was one of those times.

On Monday Beck was urging his audience to strongly consider the facts of the Bundy Ranch controversy before choosing a side.

“We did some research online with PsyID today, and found that there’s about 10 or 15 percent of the people who are talking about this online that are truly frightening,” Beck said on his television program. “They don’t care what the facts are. They just want a fight.”

Beck clarified what he meant when he went on to say there are some “decent” groups like the Tea Party who are supporting Bundy, but these groups need to be aware that the controversy has drawn “violent, anti-government” individuals who are “the right’s version of Occupy Wall Street,” as well.

After Nevada ranch stand-off, emboldened militias ask: where next?

Flat on his belly in a sniper position, wearing a baseball cap and a flak jacket, a protester aimed his semi-automatic rifle from the edge of an overpass and waited as a crowd below stood its ground against U.S. federal agents in the Nevada desert.

He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management.

The rangers had rounded up hundreds of Bundy’s cattle, which had been grazing illegally on federal lands for two decades. Bundy had refused to pay grazing fees, saying he did not recognize the government’s authority over the land, a view that attracted vocal support from some right-wing groups.

Citing public safety, the BLM retreated, suspending its operation and even handing back cattle it had already seized.

Murdered Cattle at Bundy Ranch Will Bring Feds Down in Court

Facebook/Stand with the Bundys

As Western Journalism reported yesterday, a series of photos from the scene of a federal government standoff in Clark County, Nev. indicate Bureau of Land Management agents slaughtered multiple cows on the Bundy Ranch. After alleging the ranch’s owner, Cliven Bundy, had failed to pay federal grazing fees for a number of years, armed BLM agents swarmed the area, resorting to physical violence against members of the family and threats toward those who arrived to support them.

Allegations this week, in the aftermath of BLM’s decision to back down in the face of growing opposition, are perhaps even more outrageous. According to one report, federal officials systematically gunned down numerous head of cattle, allowing others to be trampled in unorthodox herding practices.

The agency was apparently so preoccupied with removing the cattle from the ranch in an effort to punish the Bundys that its agents disregarded safe protocol. Michele Fiore, a Nevada assemblywoman who has been on the front lines in defending the ranch against the government’s excessive force, detailed the atrocities she said occurred on the property.

Gun owners flying through N.Y and N.J. shouldn’t be arrested when they check their guns

We are all miserably accustomed to being informed that our rights must be curtailed because the Founders “couldn’t have imagined” the way in which they would eventually be exercised. “Well, sure it made sense to have an armed population back when the people only had muskets,” this argument tends to go. “But now that four-year-old children can buy semi-automatic nuclear death-rays with their Happy Meals, it’s just anachronistic.”

Silly as this approach ultimately is — basic individual rights do not rely upon the date for their integrity — it is one that can at least be earnestly entertained. 1789 was, after all, a different world. But what about 1986? Can laws written this recently really be said to have had a meaning then that we cannot apply reasonably now? The Third Circuit certainly thinks so, and a decision it issued last year has led to a significant number of people’s being arrested, charged, and thrown in jail. It is high time that this came to a stop. The problem is this: Because America has a federal system of government, the majority of the gun laws are set at the local level. Thus “assault weapons” that are banned in Connecticut and New York are readily attainable in Texas and Idaho; thus permissive concealed-carry regimes are available to the citizens of Vermont and Arizona but not to those in New Jersey and Illinois; and, thus, as one might expect, the transportation, brandishing, sale, and storage rules differ wildly by location. What is good for one set of people is anathema to another. Up to a certain point, this is all well and good. Indeed, within constitutional bounds, local variation is a good thing. It allows individuals to run their communities as they see fit, and it keeps an out-of-touch central government from imposing a single set of rules upon a big and diverse country. Nevertheless, however fractured the political system becomes, a question remains: What happens to people who are merely traveling through? What, for example, does one do if one wishes to drive across the country with a firearm — to and from places where one has a legal right to possess a gun, but through places where one does not?

A 65-year-old man faces an array of charges after shooting a squirrel in his yard Monday morning, police said in a press release.

James Toigo, 258 Housatonic Dr., was charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, cruelty to an animal, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree breach of peace, failure to register an assault rifle and three counts of possessing large-capacity magazines, according to a police press release from Officer Jeffrey Nielsen.

Upon investigation, Toigo was taken into custody after police said he shot the squirrel.

Police said they also found an unregistered assault rifle, as well as three large-capacity magazines, in Toigo’s home. Both the firearms and the magazines were taken, the release said.
