Mayor Steven “Mike” Fulop, Democrat, USMC Veteran and one of Bloomberg’s gun-grabbing mayoral sycophants. Perhaps he has forgotten his USMC oath.  Additionally, Mike has never been seen in the same room at the same time as pajama boy.  Curious coincidence??

Jersey City veered outside of its authority when it devised gun permit applications that required “…substantially more…” information than state law allows, an appeals court has ruled.

VP Joe Biden: “Trayvon case could spur gun laws debate” | CBS News + a Grey Enigma rant

RANT WARNING:  Joe Biden is an ideologue and an idiot, but he is part of a dangerous cabal that may flourish after November 2012.  Make no mistake about it, if Obama is reelected there will almost certainly be a new initiative to regulate the personal ownership, possession and carrying of firearms in this country. These people are dangerous in that they cannot conceive of why an individual should want (or be allowed) to take responsibility for their own safety.  I assume they think that the government will take care of that too.

Their recent previous efforts have back fired , i.e.:  Gun walker, fast and furious, Gabby Giffords shooting propaganda and , now, they will try to make hay on the corpse of Trayvon Martin and reputation of George Zimmerman. Continue reading
