…Twitter was even more brutal, with one man, Cole Phelps, writing; ‘Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Bill De Blasio & Eric Holder should be CHARGED with the MURDER of both #NYPD Officer’s.’

Twitter user Day of the Eagle wrote; ‘I think one could rightfully say that #DeBlasio has blood on his hands now. 2 Cops shot.’

Some have even gone as far as to say that members of NYPD should not report to work until Mayor de Blasio resigns.

Many are also saying that the ‘protesters got what they wanted.’

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Newsmax; ‘De Blasio, Sharpton and all those who encouraged this anti-cop, racist mentality all have blood on their hands.’

He later said; ‘The lawless have been encouraged by the Mayor.’

Former New York Governor George Pataki also came out against de Blasio and Holder, saying; ‘Sickened by these barbaric acts, which sadly are a predictable outcome of divisive anti-cop rhetoric of #ericholder & #mayordeblasio. #NYPD’

Information is coming in slowly about the man suspected of shooting two NYPD officers today. Several reports say the NYPD has identified him as 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, and will confirm that and additional information about him at a press conference this evening.

The New York Daily News reported that Brinsley is a member of a Baltimore gang looking to exact vengeance for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. He reportedly had shot his girlfriend in Baltimore just hours before.

It was just last night that a handful of supporters of the New York Police Department attempted to hold a #ThankYouNYPD rally. The group was easily outnumbered by protesters, who taunted them and likened the gathering to a Klan rally. Just days before that, police haters hijacked a #BlueLivesMatter hashtag, while others were caught on video at the #MillionsMarchNYC chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops!”

With news just coming in that two New York City police officers were reportedly ambushed in their patrol car and shot execution-style, it’s not surprising that the anti-cop contingent is coming out to proudly express their smug satisfaction if not outright joy with the slayings.

Let’s assume for the moment that the above argument is correct and that the law forbidding the sale of untaxed cigarettes violates the natural law. So what? As far as I see it, one of two—and only two—implications follows from this assumption: (1) Garner acted rightly, for there is no moral duty to comply with an unjust law; or (2) Garner acted wrongly in breaking the law, even though it was unjust, because there is a moral duty to comply with, or at least not resist, laws enacted by recognized authorities (like legislators).

Neither line of reasoning bodes well for Garner’s natural law supporters.

Former Sydney Deputy Mayor: Lift Gun Ban so Australians Can Defend Themselves

In the wake of the December 15 hostage situation in which an armed man held unarmed Australians at gunpoint for hours, former Sydney Deputy Mayor Nick Adams is calling for a gun ban to be lifted so Australians can defend themselves.

Adams said he believes if there was ever a time Australians wanted to have a gun, it was December 15.

He told Fox News that he thinks gun laws will soon be revisited–that “Australians are now beginning to realize what it is for the bad guys to have guns and for the good people not to.” He said a lot of Australians woke up when the crisis was over and thought about how different things “could have been if someone did have a gun on them to stop this terrible, awful ordeal.”

Bloomturd Operatives (Again) Mislead Public on “School Shootings”

Bloomturd Dumb

It tells you a lot about gun control that those who promote it think that they can’t do so honestly and forthrightly.

Take Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown and “Moms Demand Action” anti-gun groups, as examples. Last week, almost two years to the day since the terrible crime at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, they released a “report” and a video advertisement designed to scare the American people into believing that crimes like the one in Newtown are commonplace.

The anti-gunners’ “report” claims that there have been 95 “school shootings” since the one in Newtown, while the video ad portrays schoolchildren being subjected to a school lockdown drill, as if to suggest that attacks like the one in Newtown are commonplace.

Happy to go along with the fraud are, as usual, elements of the news media that favor gun control. For example, USA Today reported the “95” claim as if prior such claims were uncontested. It failed to mention that several months ago, when the anti-gunners’ claimed that there had been 74 “school shootings” since the one in Newtown, a number of groups attacked the count’s methodology, and the Tampa Bay Tribune FactChecker rated the claim “mostly false.”

The reason was, as former President Bill Clinton might have said, “It all depends on how you define ‘school shootings.’” What the Tribune discovered was that Bloomberg’s operatives had counted as a “school shooting” virtually any instance in which a gun was fired on or near the campus of any primary or secondary school or college or university, whatever the circumstances. Those compiling the count did not attempt to distinguish incidents based on whether the persons involved had anything to do with the schools, whether anyone was injured or killed, or whether the incident took place during school hours.

The anti-gunners had even included self-defense shootings as “school shootings,” one of many ethical lapses for which they were criticized on NationalReview.com by hard-hitting reporter Charles C. W. Cooke.

Everytown and “Moms Demand Action” at least omitted self-defense shootings from their new “95” list. Yet the list still seeks to exploit public horror of Newtown-like incidents and to exaggerate the prevalence of such exceedingly rare occurrences. Of the 95 incidents listed, 23 resulted in fatalities. Of these 23 incidents, eight were unrelated to the schools where the crimes took place or to school-sponsored events. For example, in one incident, a man killed family members he had arranged to meet in a school parking lot.

The remaining 15 fatal incidents encompassed 19 murders, two suicides, and one accidental death among students, teachers and other school employees. Perpetrators included gang members, students, school employees and other persons not associated with the schools. While every such incident is deplorable, the picture that emerges upon closer examination is a far cry from the anti-gunners’ suggestion that crimes of the type and scale of Newtown have been occurring on a regular basis during the last two years.

The anti-gunners’ repetitive “school shootings” mischaracterization is only one of many deceptions the groups use to try to generate support for so-called “universal” background checks.

Both of Bloomberg’s groups continue to claim that 40 percent of firearms are sold without a background check, more than a year after the Washington Post FactChecker gave President Obama “Three Pinocchios” for making the claim. The Post’s critique noted that the authors of the study upon which the claim is supposedly based say they “don’t know the current percentage — nor does anyone else.”

Both groups additionally claim that background checks stop criminals from getting guns, even though federal studies in 1991, 1997 and 2004 show that people imprisoned for gun crimes get guns mostly by theft, from the black market, or from acquaintances. Moreover, nearly half of illegally trafficked guns originate with straw purchasers. Background checks do not and cannot stop any of these things from happening.

Both groups further claim that people can buy guns “online,” without acknowledging that federal law prohibits transferring a firearm to a person known or reasonably suspected of being prohibited from possessing firearms, and prohibits transferring a firearm across state lines to a person who is not a federally licensed firearm dealer (FFL).

Perhaps the most blatant falsehood is the claim by both groups that a “loophole” exists in federal law where background checks are concerned. Nothing could be further from the truth. In passing and amending the Gun Control Act of 1968, as well as the Brady Act in 1993, which created the FFL/background check system in effect today, Congress deliberately distinguished between licensed retail sales and occasional, casual transfers between private parties.

In the Preamble to the 1968 Act, Congress stated “it is not the purpose of the title to place any undue restrictions or burdens on law-abiding citizens . . . or provide for the imposition by Federal regulations of any procedures or requirements other than those reasonably necessary to implement and effectuate the provisions of this title.”

The 1968 Act required a person to obtain an FFL if “engaged in the business” of selling firearms. In 1986, Congress clarified what “engaged in the business” meant. The 1986 language, still in effect, states that “engaged in the business means . . . a person who devotes time, attention, and labor to dealing in firearms as a regular course of trade or business with the principal objective of livelihood and profit through the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms ….” It goes on to state that “such term shall not include a person who makes occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of firearms for the enhancement of a personal collection or for a hobby, or who sells all or part of his personal collection of firearms.”

In 1993, Congress imposed the Brady Act, requiring FFLs to conduct a background check when transferring a firearm to an unlicensed person. Congress, as it had done in 1968 and 1986, again clearly distinguished between FFLs and private gun owners, imposing the Brady Act’s background check requirement only on transfers conducted by FFLs. It did so not because of a loophole, but by design. Furthermore, it was gun control supporters who wrote the Brady Act. If they had wanted Congress to impose the same requirements on transfers between private gun owners, as on those conducted by FFLs, they could have written their legislation accordingly and taken their chances on getting it approved.

Anti-gun activists have promised to make “universal” background checks their priority in 2015. However, as the anti-gunners’ fundamental dishonesty becomes more widely known, their chances of moving America toward national gun registration should decrease decisively.

Retired officers forced to sue D.C. for right to carry guns after receiving threats

It’s been six years since Robert L. Smith retired from his job as a corrections officer at the D.C. Jail, but he says he still receives threats from former inmates he supervised.

He keeps a legally registered handgun inside his Southwest D.C. home, but he would like to be able to carry it to protect himself. As a former jail employee, he said, he should qualify for a permit under federal statutes that allow retired law enforcement officers to carry guns without obtaining state licenses.

But the D.C. Department of Corrections doesn’t see it that way, and the agency has declined to provide the required approvals for his request.

The Coming Obama End Run for Gun Control

With just over two years left in the administration of President Barack Obama, and with his promise, some might view it as a threat, to use the powers of his office to make changes he believes are best to move the country towards the vision he and his supporters have for the future of America (that fundamental transformation he told us about), protecting Americans’ right to bear arms will be even more important as the Obama Presidency winds down.

The president has made no secret of his interest in enacting more stringent gun control across the board in America. While he smiles and tries to cloak his goals in the guise of a “reasonable approach to gun control”, he quietly and behind the scenes schemes with his Attorney General Eric Holder to use whatever tactics they can to achieve as much as they can, with little regard for what the majority of the American people want.

The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, regulating the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships, will enter into force on December 24th of this year. The Obama Administration has fully supported this treaty. While it violates the Second Amendment of U.S. Constitution and likely won’t be ratified by the Senate and enacted into law in this country, it serves as a symbolic victory for the anti-gun politicians in Washington, D.C.

What do porn, pistols and Ponzi schemes have in common? They are all targets of Operation Choke Point, an Obama administration initiative that is the very picture of a selectively oppressive and overreaching government.

A program of the Justice Department, Operation Choke Point is the functional equivalent of a mafia extortion racket, using abusive federal regulatory authority to coerce banks and other financial institutions into withholding financial services from companies in industries that are out of favor with the administration, including the firearms and ammunition industries.

Operation Choke Point is among the more frightening threats to liberty of late because it relies on strong-arm government tactics to erode our rights under the 2nd Amendment by specifically attacking gun stores and sellers of ammunition.

Good News on Young People and Gun Control

I periodically share polling data on issues ranging from which nations most support capitalism to the degree to which government is a leading cause of stress.

Or how about the poll of Americans on the best and worst Presidents since World War II, or the survey data on what share of government spending is wasted.

Today, we’re going to expand on that collection by reviewing some potential good news about attitudes of young people and attitudes about guns. But this isn’t about how young people owning guns, or how they feel about guns.

Instead, we’re going to review two separate pieces of information, one about whether young people want to work for the federal government and another about an online poll about gun control that backfired. And both are somewhat encouraging, albeit not very scientific.

How current events might play into America’s shift in favor of gun rights

Published on: December 16, 2014

A dramatic swing in public opinion when it comes to guns and gun control may be driven by current events – particularly high-profile police killings in Staten Island, N.Y., and Ferguson, Mo., a gun control advocate says.

In 2012, 48 percent of Americans in a Pew survey said guns do more to protect people than place them at risk. According to a survey released Wednesday, that number has increased to 57 percent.

The shift was even more substantial among African-Americans, going from 29 percent in early 2013 to 54 percent now (though with a margin of error of almost 10 percent due to a small sample size).

In addition, Pew said that for the first time, it found more support for gun ownership than gun control in more than two decades of conducting the surveys.

The shift in views makes for grim reading for gun control advocates, who, according to Pew, have lost support among every demographic except Hispanics and liberal Democrats. City-dwellers, women, and blacks moved particularly hard toward a view put forth by pro-gun rights researcher John Lott: that an armed society is a polite society.

Heather Mac Donald: New York City’s Crime Drop Is Real

Published on: December 16, 2014

If the crime drop of the Kelly years was in good part the product of data dissembling, that crime drop should have halted or even reversed itself now that we are almost a year into Bratton’s second tenure as New York’s top cop. Bratton has distanced himself from some of Kelly’s policies, such as the alleged pressure on cops to conduct pedestrian stops of suspicious individuals. Bratton would presumably also change the allegedly draconian ethos of Compstat under Kelly. But rather than petering out, the New York crime drop has continued. Felonies are down 4 percent this year; absent a December killing spree, homicides will reach their lowest point in 2014 since the modern era of police record-keeping began in 1956.

The NYPD is pulling detectives from homicides and other investigations to help deal with the endless barrage of anti-cop protests in the city, law-enforcement sources told The Post Monday.

The directive is crushing morale among investigators, who can’t keep up with their caseloads and who are “complaining about this amongst each other,” one source said.

“The worst part is if you’re on standby [for a protest], then you don’t know what to do. Do you start working on your cases? Maybe. But then you’ll get pulled off it at a moment’s notice to go to these protests. The whole thing blows.”
