NEWARK, N.J. … two people have been fatally shot in Newark. It happened around 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the 300 block of Clinton Place. Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose blames the deaths on “the availability of too many guns.” He called the slayings of the two people, identified only as one male and one female, as “senseless” and “tragic.”
No arrests had been made in the early hours of the investigation, which is still active and ongoing. Authorities said more information will be released as it becomes available.

According to a segment on “The Kelly File,” last evening, Megan Kelly dropped a bombshell on Hillary Clinton’s secret Email account.
Investigations are underway.
If she is found to have kept government data on her own servers at her home in Chappaqua, NY she could be guilty of a felony that includes up to a three year prison sentence and no longer be able to hold any office in the United States of America under federal law.
It’s time for Hillary to behoisted on her own petard, she’s an elitist who believes the law doesn’t apply to her, but only the cake eaters in her, ‘It Takes a Village” delusion.
Two very important cases related to the 4th Amendment protection of cellphone data went before the Supreme Court yesterday. At issue here is whether or not police can search someone’s cellphone upon arrest. As usual, the Obama administration’s Justice Department is arguing against the citizenry, and in favor of the (police) state. Let’s not forget that the “Justice” Department also argued in favor of the police being able to place GPS tracking devices on people’s cars without a warrant back in 2011. Fortunately, the Supreme Court ruled against it.
Naturally, the feds in the current case will discuss all of the criminals they were able to bring to justice as a result of these privacy violations, but they will certainly not point out America’s current epidemic of unlawful arrests, as well as arrests for petty non-violent crimes that happen each and every day. For instance, let’s not forget statistics that came out last fall from the FBI that showed police make an arrest every two seconds in the USA. I covered this in detail in my post:Land of the Free: American Police Make an Arrest Every 2 Seconds in 2012. Continue reading →
Last week we reported that NJ lawmakers had reached a backroom deal that would allow a magazine capacity restriction bill to pass both houses of the state legislature. Last year, the legislation was blocked in the state senate, but it now seems all roads are clear for this unconstitutional bill to make it to the governor’s desk.
The bill would lower NJ’s current magazine capacity limit from 15 to 10 and it would also ban semi-auto rifles with fixed magazines that have a capacity greater than 10 rounds.
“When you meet families that lost their loved ones, it’s pretty hard to explain why you can’t do a simple thing like this to make lives a little bit easier,” said Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester).
The Assembly passed the same bill last year, but Sweeney refused to bring it up for a vote in the Senate…
” POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) – Police have arrested a man they say killed a 99-year-old woman inside her upstate New York home. Poughkeepsie.. City Police say 20-year-old Javon Tyrek Rogers was arraigned Saturday, charged with burglary and first-degree murder in the death of Fannie Gumbinger. They say he was arrested at 11 p.m. Friday night. Gumbinger’s body was found Wednesday morning after a caretaker suspected something was wrong inside the woman’s house and called police. An autopsy Thursday determined that Gumbinger died from multiple injuries inside the home she’d lived alone in since her husband’s death…”

(By the way, LWRC makes one HELL of a piston-driven AR. I have a couple, somewhere, if i recall. Just saying. GE. )
David Codrea passes along a statement from LWRC International where they have told us that they will move their company out of Maryland if the proposed unconstitutional gun ban passes. I appreciate their patriotism, and I have already weighed in informing Beretta that they must move as well if they wish to survive as a company.
“When hunters argued that Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s proposed assault-weapons ban would ruin their sport, state lawmakers were not moved. When devotees of the National Rifle Association cried that it would trample on their constitutional rights, lawmakers did not blink.... via The Captain’s Journal.

This report was released by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, more specifically from the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research that NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg funded to the tune of $107,000,000 around 2001 (see here and here). The article explains a study (that I have not yet read in the original form) that codifies gun restrictions as responsive to a public health threat. The embedded assumptions and unchallenged premises are obvious and many. Just goes to show that it takes real money to buy the best-branded and biggest-named dispassionate, unbiased acdemic opinions.
Beyond the “public health” meme, you will recall that this year was allso the one in which the false hazard of bullet lead as an environmental plague was struck down. I also recall that bullets were blamed for the Utah wildfires this summer. Make no mistake about it, these lily livered anti-gun trolls will try every door and window in thier quest to invade the house of your autonomy, empowerment and 2nd amendment rights.
Grab a barf bag. GE.
On July 20, a gunman in Aurora, Colorado, used an assault rifle to murder 12 people and wound 58 others. Although this was one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history, all mass shootings account for a small percentage of gun violence that occurs in the U.S. every day. In the past 100 days since the Aurora shooting, an estimated 3,035 Americans have died as a result of gun violence.
…One is forced to asked the question: Is the President just another Ivy League Asshole shredding civil liberties and due process and sending people to die in some shithole for purely political reasons?
There will be a historical record. “Change we can believe in” is not using the other guys’ mob to clean up your own tracks while continuing to feed at the trough. Human nature is human nature, and when people find out they’re being hustled, they will seek revenge, sooner or later, and it will be ugly and savage.
In a country with desperation growing everywhere, everyday — despite the “Oh, things are getting better” press releases — how could one think otherwise?... go here
Well, this is frightening in all of its sterile and thoroughly restrained legal-ese. Posse comitatus anyone? Actually, as long as there is an Executive Order, the Constitution, judiciary, legislature and case law all no longer apply if I recall correctly. I.e.:
The following self-learning course from the U.S. Army Military Police School, which was formerly located at Fort McClellan, describes procedures for military police involvement in civil disturbance operations. The course makes it clear that temporary detention facilities in the event of a civil disturbance overloading local resources would be operated under existing military doctrine for internment facilities. The course cites U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations, which is now numbered FM 3-39.40 since its most recent revision in 2010, as the primary reference for the operation of these facilities…
“2. Application of Force.
(1) Civil disturbance operations by federal forces will not be authorized until the President is advised by the highest officials of the state that the situation cannot be controlled with nonfederal resources available. The mission of the control force is to help restore law and order and to help maintain it until such time as state and local forces can control the situation without federal help. In performing this mission, the control force may have to actively participate, not only in subduing the disturbance, but also in helping to detain those responsible for it. Control force commanders are authorized and directed to provide such active participation, subject to restraints on the use of force...”
The Supreme Court’s Obamacare ruling on Thursday cuts right to the very fabric of the relationship between a once-limited government and a once-free citizen, but the eternal struggle between liberty and tyranny endures. It is a beginning, not an end.
As enormously important as the high court’s Obamacare ruling is – and it’s huge – it’s not the final word. The legal and political dust has not yet settled, and it will take some time for the unpredictable ripples to form the powerful waves of history. Yet, history waits for no man, so we begin by asking: What now? Continue reading →
The official said the attorney general plans to say that lethal force is legal under a Sept. 18, 2001, joint congressional resolution. The Authorization for Use of Military Force enacted a week after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks authorizes the use of all necessary force in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States… In recent months, the Obama administration has engaged in an internal debate about how much to reveal about the legal justification for the al-Awlaki killing…via Fox News.
