Sen. Chuck Schumer and gun foes rally in support of background checks | NY Daily News

Up-Chuck Schumer turns out a SOLID 100 people to rally for more pointless gun laws.  These rubes, dupes and socialists are reportedly from from his 16th district, which voted 95% Democrat for Obama on a turnout of 131,000 in 2008.

Perhaps it’s me, but the ‘male’ supporters behind the barricades look like metro-sexual, quasi-men of the urbane, useless and incompetent stripe.  Just saying….

Days after the stinging defeat of gun control measures in the Senate, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and gun-safety advocates rallied to show continued support for cracking down on guns.

About 100 people gathered outside Schumer’s Manhattan office to vow to push on despite the defeat of a measure to expand background checks for gun purchases…via NY Daily News.

I must admit feeling left out from this, had I only known…  Instead I was hunting with my son.  Not seeing any fair game, we just shot up an old vehicle in the woods instead.  I don’t think Schumer or his bath-house buddies would approve.

Were I only to give a damn.

Here’s Why the NRA Won and Gabby Giffords and Mike Bloomberg Lost | Mother Jones

And as a partial counterpoint to the WSJ article on the same subject, I post this for your consideration.  In a nutshell, the progressives at Mother Jones see gun supporters in the same bile-green light of disgust and noblesse oblige as they have always.   Mother’s view of the NRA, however, as some disembodied corporate entity unrelated to the will (and money) of a large number of American patriots is logically dissonant.  I.e.:

Money, a tragic moment, and public support do not equal political power

Mother Jones —By | Thu Apr. 18, 2013 1:45 PM PDT

On NBC’s Meet the Press last month, National Rifle Association honcho Wayne LaPierre, the face of the American gun lobby, delivered this message to New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg: “He’s going to find out that this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people, and he can’t spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the American public. He can’t buy America.” The day before, Bloomberg had announced that he would spend $12 million of his own money on an ad blitz pressing members of Congress to pass new legislation expanding background checks for gun purchases. LaPierre went on national television to tell the mayor that all those millions wouldn’t make the difference in the fight in Congress over new gun laws.

Guess what? LaPierre was right… Continue reading

The Fort Hood Shooting vs. the Gun Control media | via YouViewed\Editorial

Well stated at YouViewed\Editorial blog (I have edited for emphasis):

When you look at recent mass shootings that have occurred recently there is one specific incident that is very rarely if ever mentioned by the liberal media and Gun Control advocates.

The Ft. Hood Shooting is never cited or discussed or even mentioned by the Anti’s and Gun grabbers like Bloomberg, Schumer, Boxer, Feinstein, McCarthy or Cuomo. They only cite the TucsonAurora and Sandy Hook events as reason to restrict law abiding citizens their rights. WHY?

One must make a few assumptions to uncover why they rarely if ever cite the Ft. Hood mass shooting in their quest to deny law abiding citizens their 2nd Amendment rights.

  1. …because it occurred on a military installation while Obama was the Commander in Chief;
  2. …because the perpetrator was Muslim and it is not politically correct because the President himself sympathizes with the Muslim plight across the world;
  3. …because the victims were military personnel and they just don’t have the same impact as civilians and children for good demagoguery.

Mr. Biden: I’ll be keeping my guns, you have gone too far | The Grey Enigma

The President IS going to act…they’re executive orders, executive action, that can be taken…we haven’t decided what that is yet, but we’re compiling it all with help of the attorney general and, uhh, and all the rest of the cabinet members, as well as the legislative action we believe is required… via Modern Survival Blog.

RANT WARNING: So, as followers of this blog have figured out I don’t usually opine much, preferring to let the things I cross post speak for themselves.  I fear we are at the threshold, however, of some new and nasty developments in this latest act in our ‘gun control’ kabuki theater and I can’t keep my mouth shut.

Control | Ol’ Remus & The Woodpile Report

Control

There is only one way to shorten and ease the convulsions of the old society and the bloody birth pangs of the new —revolutionary terror. – Karl Marx

To overcome our enemies we must have our own socialist militarism. We must carry along with us 90 million out of the 100 million of Soviet Russia’s population. As for the rest, we have nothing to say to them. They must be annihilated. – Grigory Zinoviev, head of the Communist International, 1918, purged and executed in 1936

We know how socialism in Russia worked out: decades of terror, mass arrests, labor camps, intentional famines, atrocities and executions. Why did the populace not resist? It began this way, in 1918, and you’ll note it was not a suggestion:

 Citizens! Hand over your weapons

94 years later… It is truly a strange time in which we live. The Russian news outlet Pravda, formerly the mouthpiece of the Soviet regime, has published an opinion column encouraging Americans not to surrender their guns and gun rights to the government. The column warns that the disarming of the population is one of the first steps toward government repression and totalitarianism, and cites Russian history as an example, as this is exactly what happened in Russia when the Bolsheviks came to power. – Daniel S., comment at amnation.com Continue reading

101 reasons why you need an “assault rifle” | Ammoland

By Evan F. Nappen, Attorney at Law.  … A question we are all tired of hearing in the so-called “debate” over so-called “assault weapons” is, “why does anybody need one?”

Here is the answer once and for all: You need an assault weapon—

1. to help continue the American tradition of citizen/soldier.
2. for recreation.
3. to collect military small arms.
4. to get quick extra shots at more game while hunting.
5. to get quick extra shots at the same game while hunting. Continue reading

Chuckie Schumer Tells Bernanke: ‘Get To Work, Mr. Chairman’ – Wall Street Dominates ‘Schumer’s List’ | The Daily Bail

Oh yes, you can be sure that ol’ Chuckie Schumer is going to be looking out for the little guy.  I am of the opinion that there is a special place reserved in hell for this sniveling, self-aggrandizing piece of crap.

The headline quote from the Wall Street-owned Schumer has made the rounds.  Chuck basically spends 5 minutes pleading with B-52 for more QE.  The quote comes at the very end of the clip.   Captured Senator contributor list is below. Guess which bank is #1…

“Dangerous” Microstamping Bill Would Ban Guns in New York | NSSF

For the fourth year in a row, anti-gun legislators from New York City have introduced firearms microstamping legislation Assembly Bill 1157b that would result in banning firearms in the Empire State.  Microstamping is a patented process that micro-laser engraves the firearm’s make, model and serial number on the tip of the gun’s firing pin so that, in theory, it imprints the information on discharged cartridge cases.  If microstamping were to become law, firearms manufacturers would be forced to employ this patented, sole-sourced concept that independent studies, including those from the National Academy of Sciences and the University of California at Davis, found to be flawed and easily defeated by criminals… the concept of microstamping is unreliable and does not function as the patent holder claims. That study noted that microstamping can be easily defeated in mere seconds using common household tools and criminals could simply switch engraved firing pins for readily available unmarked spare parts, thereby circumventing the process.

House passes interstate handgun carry reciprocity | The Volokh Conspiracy

By a vote of 272 to 154. (The vote on the motion to recommit was 161 to 263). On the final vote, 44 Democrats voted in favor, and 7 Republicans voted against. H.R. 822 now goes to the Senate. In the previous Congress, a broader bill on interstate carry was narrowly defeated by a filibuster led by Sen. Charles Schumer. Of course whether the bill ever comes up for a vote in the Senate is up to Majority Leader Harry Reid.

In September, I testified before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, in support of the bill. My testimony focused mainly on the Congress’s constitutional authority to pass the bill under the powers granted by section 5 of the 14th Amendment. Among the explicit purposes of the 14th Amendment was to give Congress the power to enact legislation protecting the right to interstate travel, which is one of the Privileges or Immunities of citizens of the United States. My written testimony is here. A video of the subcommittee hearing is here [Enigma note: this testimony is a MUST WATCH] …
