Liberal View co-host (and 9/11 truther) Rosie O’Donnell wasted no time on Thursday in taking the shooting in Canada and spinning it into a plea for gun control in America. The comedienne cited a comment from model Chrissy Teigen. On Wednesday, Teigen tweeted, “Active shooting in Canada or as we call it in America, Wednesday.” O’Donnell raved, “I thought it was brilliant.” [MP3 audio here.]

The co-host compared, “But 86 people are killed a day are killed in America with guns. And you know what, that is terrorism here.” O’Donnell has a long history of aggressively pushing gun control, going back to a 1999 attack on Tom Selleck. In 2006, she flatly declared that the Second Amendment is “not really a right.

“OH MY!”

 

As I’ve noted elsewhere, the most amusing aspect of the whole #GamerGate phenomenon (background here and here and here) has been the angry progressive media types confusedly looking around trying to figure out how we got to a point where they would be targeted for boycotts and the like for casual comments they have made. As Varad Mehta noted,

Varad Mehta @varadmehta

@SonnyBunch

It’s as though politicizing everything will come back and bite you in the ass. My mind’s blown, man.

Crazy, right? They don’t quite understand the world they’ve created. They think it’s the worst thing in the whole world for Internet Tough Guys to make death and rape threats* and also that it’s cool to joke about Bristol Palin actually being physically assaulted by a man. Because stoopid Rethuglicans, you know? Most amusingly, they don’t even seem to understand the contradiction. So they get really butthurt when someone else whips up an Internet rage mob against them. “Don’t you understand?” they seem to be crying. “We’re the good guys here! We only take on bad people! Those Other people. That aren’t good. Like us!”

Judicial Watch Obtains List of Fast and Furious Documents Held Under Obama’s Executive Privilege

Published on: October 23, 2014

Late last night the Department of Justice complied with a court order and turned over a list to government watchdog Judicial Watch , known as a Vaughn Index, of Fast and Furious documents being held from Congress and the American people under President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege. Not surprisingly, DOJ failed to fully comply with the requirements of providing a Vaughn Index.

The Vaughn index explains 15,662 documents. Typically, a Vaughn index must: (1) identify each record withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by the claimed exemption. The Vaughn index arguably fails to provide all of this required information but does provide plenty of interesting information for a public kept in the dark for years about the Fast and Furious scandal.

Regardless, the list of documents shows Obama asserted executive privilege to protect Attorney General Eric Holder’s wife and to protect information showing Holder helped to craft talking points during the fallout of the scandal.

The “Moderate Gun Control” Group Really Exists! (And its Far Left!)

Published on: October 23, 2014

Over the years, gun rights advocates have seen a number of attempts to push “gun control” (more accurately described as “forcible citizen disarmament”) by stealth. Advocates of more restrictive gun regulation formed new groups, ostensibly more “moderate” than the well-known “gun control” groups, such as the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence (itself once called “Handgun Control, Inc., which used to publicly advocate a total handgun ban).

In the year 2000, dot-com billionaire Andrew McKelvey founded the “Americans for Gun Safety Foundation,” which describes itself this way:

Americans for Gun Safety (AGS) is a centrist, non-partisan, national education and advocacy group dedicated to the advancement of gun safety. AGS recognizes and supports the rights of law-abiding Americans to own and use guns. We also believe that with all rights come responsibilities and we urge shared responsibility for the safe use, storage and distribution of guns by all parties – manufacturers, dealers, owners, law enforcement, and members of society in general. AGS is beginning a new national dialogue, shifting the gun debate from one of rights versus responsibilities to one of rights and responsibilities.

By now, AGS has been “folded” into the “Third Way” movement, which purports to hope to end the “right wing” vs. “left wing” gridlock–mostly by ceding as much as possible to the left, and calling it a “compromise.”

SAF Sues Illinois Over Restrictive CCW Residency Requirements

The Second Amendment Foundation today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in Illinois, challenging that state’s concealed carry statute that restricts otherwise qualified non-residents the rights and privileges of carrying concealed firearms based solely on their state of residence.

Joining SAF in this legal action are the Illinois State Rifle Association, Illinois Carry, Inc., and ten individual plaintiffs, all residing in other states and who are licensed to carry in those states. Under the restrictive Illinois statute, only residents from states with “substantially similar” requirements to obtain a carry license are allowed to apply for non-resident licenses.

Only four states currently qualify under that provision. They are Hawaii, New Mexico, South Carolina and Virginia. None of the individual plaintiffs reside in those states.

According to SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, this situation is not simply unfair, it is untenable and we believe unconstitutional.

“Our plaintiffs have qualified for carry permits or licenses in their own states,” Gottlieb said, “which means they have gone through background checks and other requirements that show they are responsible, law-abiding citizens. Yet, because of the current Illinois statute, their self-defense rights are suspended immediately after they cross the Illinois state line.”

Named as defendants in the lawsuit are Attorney General Lisa Madigan, Illinois State Police Director Hiram Grau and Jessica Trame, bureau chief of the State Police Firearms Service Bureau. Plaintiffs are represented by attorney David Sigale of Glen Ellyn, Ill.

“This lawsuit,” said Sigale, “is brought because it is unfair that otherwise qualified people from states outside Illinois, who work and travel in Illinois are barred from obtaining means to defend themselves in public solely based on their state of residence. We expect to correct that.”

“We’re asking the federal court for a declaratory judgment on equal protection and due process constitutional grounds,” Gottlieb stated. “It makes no sense at all for Illinois to enforce such a narrowly-defined law that seems to recognize the rights of some non-residents, while dismissing the rights of most other non-residents. We can’t allow that kind of discriminatory situation to stand.”

A Gun Ownership Primer: The Philosophy Of Gun Ownership

AR-15 Variant

TIMES HAVE CHANGED, and not for the better. Wide-open borders admit terrorists, but even when jihadists are captured, the Secretary of Homeland Security denies it, and then denies they’re jihadists. What is apparently a justified shooting of a robber by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer sparks massive rioting, reminding Americans of how fragile race relations have become. On top of this, the very real threat of governmental tyranny, compounded by the serial lying of the President and virtually everyone in his administration is a stark reminder that we are, in every way that matters, on our own.

Barack Obama wants several legacies, but the legacy he absolutely does not want, yet the legacy that will, ironically, stay with him, is the title of best firearm salesman in history. The age of Obama has seen an unprecedented increase in the sales of firearms and ammunition by Americans not previously noted as likely gun owners.

When Americans can no longer trust their government, they realize they have to trust themselves. Fast and Furious, Benghzi, Obamacare, the IRS, the EPA, the CDC, all scandals, all covered in lies, but only a few of the scandals that pop up around President Obama like dandelions in a neglected lawn.

Even progressives have begun to understand that the government doesn’t actually want to provide for all their needs, and that even if it did, it couldn’t. They have begun to understand that this extends to protecting their lives, and they too have begun buying guns—even though only a short time ago they demonized them and their owners—for the first time in their lives.

With this in mind, I’ve produced a series of articles that will be posted over the upcoming weeks and months. These articles are a sort of primer, a set of basic questions and answers about the philosophy, practical issues and effects, the law, and the reality of gun ownership.

GoDaddy Founder Bob Parsons Speaks Out Against Gun Control in Recent Interview

Published on: October 22, 2014

GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons rarely shies away from controversy–even when wading into the contentious debate over gun violence in this country.

Parsons, a gun owner and member of the National Rifle Association, says that firearms aren’t to blame for mass shootings. That’s a hotly-debated and emotional topic, especially after a gunman killed 20 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

Since then, some states have tightened gun laws, while more have loosened them. Meanwhile, businesses from Starbucks to Target have asked customers not to bring weapons into their stores. More than 32,300 people died as a result of gun violence in 2011, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Parsons, who once famously filmed his shooting of an elephant during a vacation in Zimbabwe, called recent school shootings “terrible,” but says the weapons aren’t to blame for those deaths.

“Until we have a mechanism or a way that we can track people that have mental problems and are a real danger to society, you’re going to continue to have this stuff–whether they use guns, whether they use knives, fire, whatever they use,” he said during a video interview at the Inc. 5000 conference in Phoenix last week.

Dana Loesch: Women Have Always Had the Right to Be Armed

On Tuesday, Dana Loesch appeared on Fox and Friends to promote her new book, “Hands Off My Gun” as well as to talk topics of the day. During the interview, Dana talked about gun rights, and specifically the New York SAFE Act and the danger of giving bureaucrats the power and authority to simply declare a person unfit to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

“This all part of the New York SAFE Act, which kind of terrifies me. because that New York SAFE Act is a Pandora’s Box of government regulation, and I get into that a little bit in my book ‘Hands Off My Gun’. This law, these people, 34,000 people have not been mentally, they’ve not been adjudicated to be mentally unfit. These are a lot of people who have never seen their day in court, they never get to face their accusers. There is a process by which someone can be deprived of their second amendment right, and when you can be anonymously accused by a health professional or a health worker of being mentally unfit, and put on this list, that’s a little unfair. And there are even medical professionals here in New York who say there are too many people on this list.”

In asking Dana for her perspective, host Steve Doocy asked about a “slippery slope.” An article at The Right Scoop a few months ago pondered the same thing.

Guess What Ferguson Police Found on Missouri Democrat Who Has Sponsored Several ‘Anti-Gun’ Bills…

Screengrab via KMOV-TV

Missouri state Senator Jamilah Nasheed, a Democrat who has sponsored several “anti-gun” bills in her state, was arrested Monday night during a protest outside of the Ferguson Police Department. However, it’s what police officers found on her that is raising eyebrows.

Nasheed was carrying a loaded 9mm handgun and extra rounds of ammunition, according to Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson. She also refused to take a breathalyzer test after officers determined she “smelled strongly of intoxicants,” sources told KMOV-TV.

Nasheed claimed on Tuesday that she was not intoxicated at the time of her arrest and emphasized that she is a legal concealed carry permit holder.

Police arrested and charged the state senator with failure to obey lawful order of police and manner of walking in the roadway after she and other protesters refused to get out of the street.

On Tuesday morning, Nasheed said it was a “symbolic arrest” to send a “message to the protesters that we can protest peacefully and that we must protest peacefully and that we want justice for Michael Brown.”

Catching A Glimpse Of America’s Future In Ferguson (Lib Writer Frets)

Published on: October 21, 2014

On Oct. 12 the good people of Ferguson, Missouri, continued to protest the unjustified shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown by municipal police officer Darren Wilson. Seventeen people were arrested for participating in an unlawful assembly outside a convenience store, and the following day, 50 others were arrested as part of an organized “Moral Monday” protest challenging St. Louis’ casual acceptance of police violence and brutality. Earlier this month, protesters disrupted a bastion of white elitism — a performance of the St. Louis symphony — as well as an event decidedly less elite: a St. Louis Cardinal’s game.

Discontent over the shooting of Michael Brown is not subsiding. It has seemingly evolved into a larger movement aimed at questioning the broader foundations of the system of structural inequality that black and brown men and women face every day. Indeed, it has broken out into the larger culture as a renewed debate over inequality in general in the contemporary United States. As is usually the case in the farce that passes for American political culture these days, perhaps the most interesting arena to watch this play out was not on any actual news program, but on a recent episode of “The Daily Show” in which host Jon Stewart and guest Bill O’Reilly discussed the concept of white privilege.

Laughs were had by all of course, but the comic jabs between Stewart and O’Reilly paper over an admittedly grim reality. A recent study carried out by the journalism nonprofit ProPublica, for instance, finds that black teens are 21 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than their white counterparts. The report’s authors came to this conclusion by examining FBI data accumulated on the topic between 2010 and 2012, which showed that for teens aged 15 to 19, the rate at which black youngsters were gunned down by the boys in blue stood at 31.17 per million, while that for their white counterparts are just 1.47 per million. Even accounting for the higher crime rate of black teens, which itself is heavily inflated by the racial bias that pervades our juvenile justice system, the disparity in police killings of black teens is still far, far higher than one would expect if no bias were at work.

Dems Use Ebola To Push For Anti-Gun Surgeon General (Second Time Around is a Charm?!)

Dr. Vivek Murthy, nominee to be the next U.S. Surgeon General, testifies on Capitol Hill on Feb. 4, 2014. AP

More than two dozen House Democrats are pushing the Senate to revive and ratify the nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy to a critical post, but helping to fight deadly disease is not what they have in mind.

The question of the day is why we have or need an Ebola czar in the form of political operative/hack Ron Klain when we have an unfilled surgeon general’s position that physician emeritus serving as America’s doctor is supposed to fill.

We have an acting Surgeon General, Rear Admiral Boris Lushniak, but he is seemingly just a placeholder instead of the force that a confirmed Surgeon General can and should be.

The surgeon general could be a respected face and voice in the fight against Ebola, a role that has defaulted to Dr. Tom Frieden of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), he of the protocols etched in Jell-O who is probably still rethinking his approach to the disease.

The answer from Democrats is — wait for it — it’s the Republicans’ fault, since President Obama’s nominee to the post, Dr. Vivek Murthy, president and co-founder of Doctors for America, was stopped in his tracks by Senate Republicans and vulnerable red-state Democrats.

NEW UK GUN POLICY SHOULD BE A WARNING TO AMERICAN GUN OWNERS, SAYS CCRKBA

Tags: No Tags

Published on: October 21, 2014

A new policy announced by the British Home Office recently to allow unannounced searches of the homes of registered British gun owners should raise alarms among Americans who are threatened with increasingly restrictive gun laws pushed by wealthy anti-gunners including billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“This is an alarming development in Great Britain,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “and it ought to serve as a warning to American gun owners and Constitutional activists concerned not only with their Second Amendment rights but also their Fourth Amendment rights. In Washington state, where CCRKBA is headquartered, there have already been attempts to include such language in so-called ‘assault weapons’ ban legislation.

“There are also privacy concerns about Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure requiring background checks on nearly all firearms transfers,” he added, “ including temporary loans and gifts to friends and in-laws. All too frequently, we’ve heard the gun prohibition lobby urge adoption of gun laws and regulations like those in the United Kingdom, and now we can see what they’re ultimately after.”

According to Fox News, prior to the new regulations, British gun owners were subject to visits by the authorities. However, these required prior notification. The new policy does not.

“British authorities argue that the new policy is necessary based on so-called ‘intelligence’ indicating a specific threat,” Gottlieb observed, “but there is considerable danger in this revision because such guidelines could be easily abused.

“We are living in an era when government, under the rather broad arguments of national and local security, is becoming ever more intrusive,” he continued. “Our delineated civil rights, at least in America, include the right to keep and bear arms, and the example now coming from Great Britain is that this right is being systematically eroded to the point that it is becoming a heavily-regulated privilege.

“Let this be a warning to tens of millions of law-abiding American gun owners,” Gottlieb concluded. “What’s happening now in the United Kingdom will be touted as the next ‘common sense’ step for gun control in the United States. Just because someone exercises their right to keep and bear arms should not be an excuse to nullify their right to privacy.”

Sincerely yours,

Alan M. Gottlieb
