  • How a ‘tiny’ flight attendant wrestled a gun from a hijacker’s hands (YOU Are the Weapon)

    Handout

    HandoutNicole Foran in 2009

    Nicole Foran loved to travel. The idea of getting on a plane and going somewhere new always seemed like a good idea to her. She is a Nova Scotian, with equal roots in New Brunswick, and her life, as she knew it, in her 20s, was perfectly, wonderfully unremarkable.

    April 19, 2009, started out as just a typical night for Ms. Foran, a flight attendant for the previous two years for CanJet, a charter airline that flies to Caribbean hotspots — Mexico, Jamaica and Cuba — out of Halifax Stanfield International Airport.

    Flight 918 was on the tarmac at Sangster International Airport, in Montego Bay, Jamaica, taking on passengers for the short hop to Santa Clara, Cuba. She was making her rounds, handing out customs forms. At 10 p.m. a murmur rippled through the plane. A man was on board. He had a gun.

    “In that moment you become a whole new person,” the now 31-year-old says from the airlines’ offices in Enfield, just outside of Halifax. “You shut down and your survival instinct kicks in, and my thought was — how do we get all these people off the plane — and how do we survive this?

  • NFL hypocrisy — Bloomberg anti-gun ads ok but ad about 2A ‘protections’ is banned?

    New York City Mayor and gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg sure knows how to get his way.

    This week the NFL, after featuring anti-gun ads during the last two Super Bowls, it decided that an ad offering the opposite point of view in the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2 was just too much.

    The NFL turned down an ad from a company called “Daniel Defense” which sells guns and outdoor gear that discussed “personal protection and fundamental rights.” It featured a former Marine talking his family’s safety, noting that he is ultimately responsible for their protection.

    Unlike Bloomberg’s ads, the “Daniel Defense” ad never even mentions the word “gun,” just the concept of personal protection.

    The very end of the initial version of the ad did show the company’s logo, a picture of a gun. But this wasn’t the stumbling block, as the company told the NFL that it would happily to remove the logo and replace it with a picture of an American flag.

    Still the NFL found that unacceptable.

  • Confirmed: NY SAFE Act Impacting Jobs Statewide! (CuHomo Denies!)

    CuomoUrinalSticker

    It’s a law that News10NBC has heard so many complaints from many of you. The SAFE Act bans assault weapons and limits the number of rounds in a magazine among other things.

    News10NBC has solid numbers on how many jobs are leaving the state because of it. Governor Cuomo says it’s all about making our communities safer, but when we asked him last month about jobs moving out of state because of the law, he didn’t completely agree.

    After our first story aired, we heard from a number of gun shops and manufacturers who say the SAFE Act restrictions have taken away 50 percent or more of their business and for some, moving out of the state was a must if they wanted to stay in business. The losses add up to hundreds and even one job gone is having a big ripple effect.

    Amanda Ciavarri asked, “Hundreds maybe thousands of jobs in upstate New York have been lost because of the New York Safe Act. It is driving gun retailers and gun manufactures across the border to Pennsylvania.”

    Governor Andrew Cuomo said, “Yeah, I don’t think that is correct on the facts.”

    Hundreds of jobs have already left the state. American Tactical in the Rochester area is closing its shop, packing up and heading to South Carolina. It started the moving process last month. The company says it is partially moving because it wants to be located in a gun friendly state. So what is New York losing? American Tactical says it is creating 117 new jobs in South Carolina and investing $2.7 million.

  • The Three Most Important Ongoing Second Amendment Cases

    Since the 2010 Supreme Court case McDonald v. Chicago, which applied the ruling in the 2008 Heller case (which said the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms) to states and localities, the Court has so far evaded any new case about the limits and meaning of the Second Amendment.

    Those two cases, though, did not resolve all the important questions about how and when and why the government can restrict Second Amendment rights. Heller and McDonald said that the right to possess commonly used weapons for self-defense in the home cannot be infringed, but Justice Antonin Scalia in his majority opinion in Heller explicitly said this didn’t mean anything goes when it comes to Americans and their guns.

    Many other cases that try to define the whos, whens, and hows of our Second Amendment rights are percolating through the lower courts, and some are trying to wend their way to the Supreme Court.

    Here are three of the most relevant active cases involving the Second Amendment, ones that promise to expand Second Amendment liberty, and resolve some of the core issues left unresolved by Heller and McDonald. Two of them will likely be considered for certiorari by the Supreme Court (though whether they will take them up is always hard to predict).

  • NYPD Begins Gun Confiscations for Rifles/Shotguns With a 5+ Round Capacity

    (courtesy Mrgunsngear's Facebook page)

    The New York City Police Department is taking aim at owners of certain shotguns and rifles, telling them all long guns with more than a five-round capacity must be tåçurned in, altered or taken out of town.

    The first option for the letter’s recipient is to, “Immediately surrender your Rifle and/or Shotgun to your local police precinct, and notify this office of the invoice number. The firearm may be sold or permanently removed from the City of New York thereafter.”

    An estimated 500 recipients of the notices, which were mailed on Nov. 18, were given the options to surrender their gun, permanently move the gun out of city jurisdiction or employ a licensed gunsmith to modify the weapon to get into compliance with the law. Rifles and shotguns with a capacity of five or more rounds are affected.

    An NYPD spokeswoman told FoxNews.com the initiative has been in practice since 2010.

    But this year is the first time critics say the notices were so widely dispersed. The notice was first reported on the website TheTruthAboutGuns.com.

    “These letters appear to be another example of the Nanny State. Hypothetically, it can start with a letter, and then that can lead to someone knocking on your door saying, ‘I want to see your gun.'”

    – New York State Assemblyman James Tedisco

    New York State has the strictest gun laws in the country. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, has made it a priority of his to pull illegal handguns off the streets and directly links these guns to violent crimes. But critics say the real problem is illegal handguns in the hands of criminals, not long guns owned by law-abiding citizens.

    “We think it’s an abuse of power by the NYPD,” said Tom King, the president of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association. His organization has fought with the state on various gun bills and spent $400,000 on a lawsuit challenging the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or SAFE Act, which was signed in January by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

  • Connecticut Shouldn’t Be Surprised That “Fewer People Than Expected Have Registered Weapons”

    AR-15

    Earlier this year, Connecticut politicians took advantage of the horrific Newtown shootings to dust off a wish list of draconian firearms restrictions and race them through the legislative process into law. The restrictions wouldn’t have prevented the mass murder—they would have been completely irrelevant to the crime, in fact—which may be why they were rammed through under “emergency certification” with no referrals to committees or public hearings. Among other things, the new law requires registration of “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines by January 1, 2014. Any student of history could have predicted officials’ current concerns now that relatively few residents are complying with the law and telling the state what they own as the deadline fast approaches.

  • Gun Ban Fallout: Colorado Seen Trending Republican After Latest Democratic Recall/Resignation!

    Image: Colorado Seen Trending Republican After Democratic Resignation

    Miss Piggy resigned rather than be recalled for her Gun Ban Vote!

     

    Colorado has been rocked by the surprise resignation of Democratic state Sen. Evie Hudak, and Republicans from Denver to Washington have begun to seriously discuss whether this is the latest sign that the Centennial State is again trending Republican.

    Hudak’s Nov. 27 resignation — which puts Republicans in a stronger position to win control of the state Senate next year — occurred as the latest polls show Colorado’s two top Democrats Gov. John Hickenlooper and Sen. Mark Udall — highly vulnerable to Republican challengers in 2014.

    “Overreach” is a term Republicans in Colorado often use to characterize the major reason that Democrats are now facing major challenges to the lock they have held on major statewide offices for nearly a decade.

    As former state Republican Chairman Dick Wadhams told Newsmax, “Democrats may very well have overreached when they pushed gun-control legislation through the Senate and when they supported a major tax increase for education that voters turned down by a margin of 2-to-1 last November.”

    Coming less than four months after two fellow senate Democrats were ousted in recall elections organized by gun owners and conservatives, Hudak was the target of a petition drive to place her on the ballot in a recall election.

    Had the election been held and Hudak ousted, the state Senate’s present one-seat Democratic edge — 18 seats to 17 in Republican hands — would have flipped to the Republicans, giving them control of the upper house of the legislature.

    But the two-term senator chose to quit rather than fight.


  • Black NYC Councilwoman Blames ‘Knockout’ Attacks on Jews in Neighborhood

    The alleged “knockout” attacks on Jewish residents of Crown Heights may stem from ongoing racial tension between the neighborhood’s black and Jewish communities, a newly-elected Brooklyn politician said.

    Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo, who was elected to represent Crown Heights starting in January, released an open letter Tuesday saying that many of her black constituents told her they feel threatened by the growth of the neighborhood’s Jewish community — and she fears the tension could be spiking the recent violence.

    “Many African American/Caribbean residents expressed a genuine concern that as the Jewish community continues to grow, they would be pushed out by their Jewish landlords or by Jewish families looking to purchase homes,” Cumbo wrote in the 1,200-word letter, which was emailed to supporters and posted on her Facebook page.

  • De Blasio: ‘We Are in a Progressive Moment Right Now’ (Declares War on Capitalism)

    Bill de Blasio at last night's fund-raiser.

    Last night Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio was again the darling of the left.

    Headlining a Brooklyn fund-raiser for the group New York Communities for Change, Mr. de Blasio was hailed as a progressive hero and the fruit of a more than decade-long battle by labor groups, grassroots organizations and the Working Families Party to crown one of their own.

    “I am so appreciative of not just the support I received and my campaign received, I’m appreciative of all the people who were given hope by New York Communities for Change, who were shown their own power,” said Mr. de Blasio, speaking at the Transport Workers Union Local 100′s headquarters in Brooklyn.

    The fund-raiser drew hundreds of attendees, including many of the city’s political elite, allowing for the awkward collision of the Democratic powers-that-be and the strident, anti-establishment rhetoric of some of the event’s speech-makers. Chris Shelton, a vice president with the Communication Workers of America, urged the attendees noshing on brie cheese to join a “revolution” against the “bankers, billionaire and brokers of Wall Street.”

  • Libs Admit That Anti-Gun “Advocates” Will Have to Settle for Small Gains (NRA Blamed – Heh Heh Heh)

    For gun control advocates, the smallest of accomplishments in 2013 may have to be enough.

    A 10-year extension of the ban on plastic guns — not toys but high-powered firearms that can evade detection by metal detectors — is poised to clear Congress before the existing 25-year law expires on Dec. 9.

    But even something that simple is full of obstacles and opposition.

    Nearly a year after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary killed 20 children and six adults and long after a failed attempt to pass universal background checks for those who purchase firearms, any attempt to change gun laws remains a herculean task.


  • Federal gun prosecutions decline despite Obama executive action (Epic Failure in the White house)

    More than a year after the Sandy Hook school shooting, President Obama’s directive to amp up prosecutions of federal gun laws hasn’t made much difference in how many people are charged with gun crimes.

    U.S. attorneys that prosecute such cases charged 11,674 people with breaking federal gun laws in the fiscal year that ended in September, compared to 11,728 people the year before.

    “The federal gun charge numbers are not an accurate reflection of the Department’s efforts to investigate and prosecute gun violence,” said Allison Price, a spokeswoman for the Justice Department, in a statement. “The fact that we may not prosecute a gun case in federal court does not mean the case is not prosecuted at all.”
