A federal judge instructed Chicago in January that it was not free simply to ban gun stores from operating in the city. Chicago mayor and former Presidential chief of staff Rahm Emanuel went to work and now has presented a proposed gun store ordinance to the City Council.

As you would expect, it is a masterpiece of hypocrisy. While making a show of compliance with the judge’s order, the new law would effectively continue the ban by other means.

Chicago has a land area of 246 square miles. There are skyscraper blocks downtown, long stretches of bungalows farther out, run-down industrial districts. You’d think there would be plenty of spots for a nice gun store, right?

Wrong. The proposed ordinance forbids gun stores near parks, schools and in such a profusion of other places that the Emanuel administration itself states that a store could be located only in about .05% of Chicago. That’s just over one square mile, by my calculator.

SAF SUES NORTH CAROLINA OVER LAW BARRING CCW PERMITS FOR LEGAL RESIDENTS

Second Amendment Foundation

The Second Amendment Foundation today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in North Carolina on behalf of an Australian citizen who legally resides in the state, but cannot obtain a concealed carry permit under a state law that only allows citizens to get such permits.

The plaintiff, Felicity M. Todd Veasey, lives with her family in Butner, where she has resided since 2004. Prior to that, she lived in neighboring Durham County. She has a permanent resident visa and she once worked at the Australian Embassy in Washington, D.C.

“Felicity is a long-time resident of the community,” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, “and she can legally possess a concealed firearm in North Carolina, but only on her own property as the law now stands. We’re challenging that, just as we have challenged similar laws in New Mexico, Washington, Arkansas and elsewhere.”

Named as a defendant in the lawsuit is Granville County Sheriff Brindell B. Wilkins, Jr. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, Western Division.

“Although we’ve won similar cases in other states,” Gottlieb said, “we seem keep finding such laws on the books and we have to challenge them. Felicity has set down roots in North Carolina, where she lives with her husband and stepson. Her rights under the Second Amendment are being violated.”

SAF’s lawsuit seeks to establish that the recognition and incorporation of the Second Amendment, and the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause, renders North Carolina’s ban on non-citizens obtaining a concealed carry license, unconstitutional. As the plaintiffs only seek to be treated the same as law-abiding citizens, the Second and Fourteenth Amendments render a ban such as that challenged in this action, impermissible.

Open Carry Texas Goes for ‘In Your Face’ Approach to Gun Debate

Imagine sitting down to dinner at a restaurant with your family when in walks a handful of men armed with assault rifles. Are you frightened, maybe angry? Or do they make you feel safe?

That’s the question at the center of a bitter and increasingly public battle surrounding a group of gun-carrying activists in Texas, who brazenly flex their legal right to bear arms by carrying around assault rifles in public. The group calls themselves “Open Carry Texas.” Their enthusiasm for packing heat in public has led national chains like Chipotle, Chili’s and Jack in the Box to ask customers to leave their firearms at home.

What the group is doing is perfectly legal in Texas, but they have come to represent the line in the sand between those in America who fear the violent use of guns and those who fear losing their guns.

Gun Company That Fled CT Will Issue Special Edition Guns for New Home in Florida!

Firearms manufacturer PTR Industries is so pleased with its move to Aynor that it is producing a special gun to show its appreciation.

The company will produce 1,000 South Carolina commemorative firearms, each stamped with an outline of the state with a Palmetto tree and crescent moon inside it.

PTR vice president John McNamara said the company developed the gun as a way to give something back to South Carolina.

The company moved its headquarters and operation to Aynor in January with no hassles. McNamara said state and local officials helped in any way they could, such as with zoning.

“All the red tape involved was handled efficiently,” he said.

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley will receive one of the special edition firearms at a ceremony at the plant on Monday. The special gun costs $1,200 and may be purchased at several area gun stores.

PTR CEO Josh Fiorini decided to move the company from Connecticut after a law was passed that would ban legal ownership in the state of firearms such as those PTR makes. The legislature took the action banning assault weapons following the shooting deaths of 20 elementary school children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the deadliest K-12 shooting in U.S. history.

A majority of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s handling of the widening crisis in Iraq – and overall dissatisfaction with his foreign policy agenda has shot up among both Republicans and Democrats, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

Fifty-two percent of Americans say they don’t like how Obama is dealing with the violence in Iraq; just 37 percent approve, the poll showed.

“I voted for him because he said, ‘Give me four more years and I will fix everything,’ but nothing is being fixed,” Michelle Roberts, 34, a Democrat from Salem, Mass., told The New York Times.

Emanuel pushes gun control while Chicago burns

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel earlier this month insisted that his brand of gun control should spread nationwide, but this past weekend’s Windy City body count – with six dead and more than 20 wounded, according to this morning’s Chicago Sun Times – does not instill public faith in his strategy.

In the eyes of gun rights advocates, Emanuel is just one more gun prohibitionist whose ideas have no foundation in reality. Indeed, as this column has reported recently, prominent gun control advocates have admitted that their ideas don’t work.

Earlier this month when Mark Glaze stepped down as executive director of Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown for Gun Safety,” he told the Wall Street Journal, “when a mass shooting happens…nothing that we have to offer would have stopped that mass shooting (in Santa Barbara).”

Late last month, Washington CeaseFire President Ralph Fascitelli also admitted, “I don’t know of anything…that could have been done to prevent this tragedy in Santa Barbara.”

Common Sense ‘Pop Tart’ Gun Bill Becomes Law In Florida (Anti-Pussification!)

Po

The “zero-tolerance” policy has become pretty insane in recent years, with school officials drastically over-reacting to kids being, well, normal kids. In one incident last year, a little boy in Maryland chewed his Pop-tart into the shape of a gun, and the adults in his school went ballistic. Legislators in Florida are pushing back against the madness by passing a “Pop-tart bill.”

ADVERTISEMENT

The bill was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott on Friday, reports the Miami Herald.

A number of absurd stories have made the news of innocent kids playing, sometimes quite creatively, who get into big trouble at school. If there is any mention or resemblance of a gun, the offending child is taken down quickly. Some even have the word “terrorist” on their school record.

The Inquisitr has reported a number of these crazy over-reactions. There was the girl who talked about shooting bubbles at someone with a Hello, Kitty bubble gun. A boy thought that the clouds were shaped like a gun. Another brought an obviously toy gun to school and was interrogated for two hours, during which time he wet his pants. And another built a toy gun out of Legos. Just the mere MENTION of the word “gun” can make teachers go apoplectic.

Mass Shootings: It’s Time To Go Back To Institutionalizing The Severely Mentally Ill

The left consistently blames guns for school shootings, while mostly ignoring the big elephant in the room: mental illness. Up until the 1960s, the severely mentally ill were locked up in psychiatric hospitals, for their own good and for the protection of society. The ACLU and the left changed that, by successfully suing to get them released out onto the streets. So now, they make up much of our homeless population. From there, many have predictably ended up in our prison system. The rate of mental illness in U.S. prisons is five times greater than in the regular population, and people with serious mental illness are three to four times more likely to be violent than others.

While access to guns has decreased, there is one common denominator that most, if not all, mass shooters reflects, which is mental illness. While some liberals are finally gingerly mentioning mental illness now, most liberals dare to state the obvious – the mass shooters should have been locked up when there were telltale signs. In 2005, Virginia Special Justice Paul Barnett wrote in an order that future Virginia Tech mass shooter Seung-Hui Cho “presented an imminent danger to himself as a result of mental illness,” but instead of committing him to an institution – which would have also removed his ability to buy firearms for his future mass shooting – he only recommended outpatient treatment. The mother of Adam Lanza, the Sandy Creek Elementary School shooter, who was also one of the victims fatally shot by him, had been making plans to have him institutionalized. The mother of Elliot Rodger, the 22-year old who went on a shooting and knifing spree in Isla Vista, Calif., last month, called the police on her son prior to the shooting incident. While in college, he tried to push a girl off a ledge.

Red State Dems to Gabby Giffords, Mark Kelly: Please Stay Away!

Red state Democrats who are fighting to overcome their support of gun control and get re-elected are asking gun control proponents Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly to stay out of their states.

This comes after Breibart News’ June 4 report that Giffords and Kelly planned to help Senators Mark Udall (D-CO), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), and Kay Hagan (D-NC) get re-elected this November.

Now Udall, Landrieu, and Hagan are pushing Giffords and Kelly to stay away from their races.

According to The Washington Times, the three incumbents are trying to keep gun control from erupting as a major issue in their contests, and they fear that is exactly what will happen once Giffords and Kelly join the fray.

Republicans Challenge Regret-Filled Colorado Gov. to Support Magazine Ban Repeal

Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper now says he has regrets about signing last year’s bill limiting magazine capacity to 15 rounds, but it’s not too late for him to do something about it.

Republicans challenged Hickenlooper to get behind a repeal of the bill after he told county sheriffs that he was sorry for failing to consult with them on the measure; that a staffer promised he would sign the bill if it passed, and that the bill probably wouldn’t accomplish anything.

Secretary of State Scott Gessler called on the governor to convene a special session in order to repeal the magazine-limit law, also known as H.B. 1224.

“If he’s really sincere about the mistakes he’s made, he would call a special session beforehand to fix his mistakes,” said Gessler, who’s seeking the GOP gubernatorial nomination. “But I don’t think he’s going to do that.”

Former Rep. Tom Tancredo, who’s also running for the Republican nod, pointed out that a proposed initiative to repeal the law is now in the signature-gathering phase.

“There’s an initiative trying to get on the ballot right now, but I don’t hear him touting it,” said Tancredo.

Hickenlooper’s rambling June 13 speech to the sheriffs in Aspen has generated intense criticism this week after going viral. In his remarks, the governor appears to be making the argument that he shouldn’t have signed the magazine-limit bill in March 2013.

“Again, if we’d known it was going to divide the state so intensely, I think we probably would have thought about it twice,” said Hickenlooper on a video posted online by Revealing Politics.

“As you point out, how important really was it? They tell me after all the kerfuffle–I went back to try to get some facts that we should have had at the beginning–they told me there are roughly 300,000 magazines that carry more than 15 rounds in the state of Colorado already,” said Hickenlooper. “How’s a police enforcement officer ever gonna tell which is the old and which is the new one?”

Advocates of splitting California into six states gathering signatures (It’s About Taxes and Guns!)

Good day, future citizen of West California!

You may find yourself greeted thusly as you head into a supermarket or drugstore in Los Angeles on Saturday morning.

Advocates for Six Californias, a plan to split the Golden State into a half dozen separate states, are holding a petition drive this weekend to get their plan on the ballot in 2016.

The idea is the brainchild of Timothy Draper, a venture capitalist from Menlo Park – or as he hopes to some day call it, the state of Silicon Valley. Draper has sunk $2 million into signature gathering for the proposal. He maintains it will break bureaucratic deadlock in Sacramento (proposed state of North California) and attract more business.

“California has become the worst managed state in the country,” he told The Times this spring. “It just is too big and too ungovernable.”

America’s expanding police state: Neighborhood cops are becoming armed soldiers

Published on: June 22, 2014

With so much happening internationally and the number of scandals, crises and general screw-ups of the Obama administration here at home, it’s worth noting a disturbing development here on the domestic front: a rapidly expanding police state.

On my radio program last week I had the pleasure of speaking with Cheryl Chumley, a reporter for The Washington Times, about her new book, “Police State USA: How George Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming our Reality.” The title says it all, and aptly describes the shocking transformation of what had been our free society.

We all know about the scope of National Security Agency (NSA) spying. It’s fair to say at this point in our lives that the notion of privacy is all but dead and gone. However, it didn’t start there. In her book, Mrs. Chumley takes us on a ride through history, reminding us of the original intentions of the Founding Fathers versus the assault on the original design by “21st century realities.”

Keep in mind, people in the political class constantly reveal their contempt for regular citizens. That contempt is the inevitable result of a group of people who have convinced themselves that big government is necessary because the little people can’t control their own lives.

These same politicians and bureaucrats then begin to see themselves a genuinely better than everyone else. After all, if they were just like us, then they’d be part of the rabble, and they can’t have that. The solution to their dilemma is a police state.

Colorado Gov. throws F-bomb at sheriffs, says never talked with Bloomturd over bills (Later says he did!)

During a meeting with the state’s sheriffs, (Colorado Governor) Hickenlooper said he had to sign the magazine ban because a staffer in his office had promised Democratic lawmakers that he would sign the bill and therefore he had no choice.

Hickenlooper also denied that he talked with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg over the laws.

However, after video of the meeting emerged and was posted on the website Revealing Politics, Hickenlooper complained that he had no idea he was being recorded.

Following the release of the video, Hickenlooper admitted that he actually did meet with Bloomberg, despite his telling the sheriffs he didn’t but it was only after the bills were signed into law.

When the sheriffs complained that Hickenlooper refused to meet with them prior to signing the bills, despite their testifying before the legislature about the problems with the bill, Hickenlooper had some colorful remarks for law enforcement.

“What the f—?” Hickenlooper said. “I apologized!”
