SPD rifle flap punctures public perception about cops as gun safety experts


 

   The on-going flap over a semiautomatic AR-15 type rifle left unattended on the trunk of a Seattle police car Monday night just may become the pin that punctures a public perception – especially when it comes to the legislative arena – that police are the “experts” on all things firearms-related…

   What all of this demonstrates is that civilian law enforcement officers are as capable of human error as anyone else, even with training and years of experience…  

   In the long run, Seattle police and their colleagues everywhere, and ultimately the people they serve, will be better off for it.

“IF YOU TRY TO TAKE OUR FIREARMS, WE WILL KILL YOU.”


Blogger Mike Vanderboegh, one of the 2 who first broke the ‘Operation Fast & Furious’ story, fired off a letter in response to a Miami Herald article, in which he made it crystal clear that gun owners have no intention of allowing another round of gun bans, particularly not as a result of government treachery.

DOMESTIC TERRORISTS: Who Will Protect This Country and Her Citizens Now?


Obviously, We, The People are on our own this time.    That’s probably a good thing, considering the TOTAL AND COMPLETE INEPTITUDE of those in DC charged with the task. 

 

 

Nothing But Hypocrisy and Imperialism From The Smug-Faced, Gun-Grabbing Politicians

June 25, 2011 2 comments

(H-T Mike Matulovich)

At the same time, there are outspoken opponents of gun ownership, such as Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA), who are carrying concealed weapons, according to WABC Radio’s Mark Levin. Levin, a recognized constitutional expert, heads the Landmark Legal Foundation. The LLF’s goal is to protect American’s from unreasonable and illegal government intrusions and violations of the US Constitution, including the Second Amendment.

The mainstream news media have been aware that several antigun proponents are carrying concealed firearms but have failed to expose this hypocrisy. This writer’s efforts to discover how many other anti-gunners are also packing heat a right they wish to deny other citizens met with limited results.

Not only does Schumer carry a handgun, the New York City Police Department also provides armed escorts for the good senator. In fact, the Government Accounting Office the investigative arm of the US Congress slammed Schumer’s use of police resources for personal protection. It’s clear that Schumer believes he’s special. He wishes to ban private citizens’ ownership of firearms, while he enjoys layers of protection.

“No wonder Chuckie Schumer shoots his mouth off so much he’s able to protect himself,” says a 25-year police veteran.

Also, a check of Pistol License records shows that Senator Schumer possesses an “unrestricted” pistol permit, a rarity in New York City. Licenses are distributed in different categories in the Big Apple: Target Permits allow only use of a firearm at a licensed firing range; Premises Permits allow weapons to be kept in a home or apartment; Restricted Permits allow the gunowner to carry their firearms concealed but only within the purview of their job (security, jewelers, armored car guards, etc.). So it’s evident that Senator Schumer has two sets of rules one for Americans and one for himself.

And then we have Senator Diane Feinstein on the Left Coast who possesses something more rare than a conservative Republican in San Francisco an unrestricted concealed weapons permit. Apparently without shame, she participated in a citywide gun turn-in program that was intended to create some kind of statue from the donated guns that were to be melted down. One of her police body guards let it slip that she contributed a cheap model for the meltdown, while retaining her .357 magnum revolver for her own personal self-defense.

Hypocrisy is not limited to politicians when it comes to the Second Amendment. For Example, well-known Washington-based columnist, Carl Rowan, often wrote about the ills of firearms ownership. Until, that is, he shot and wounded a teenager who trespassed on his property. The white teenaged boy claimed he wanted to try Rowan’s swimming pool. Rowan, an African-American, retaliated with deadly force using a firearm. That’s when the news came out that Carl Rowan, gun-control advocate, actually possessed a license to own firearms.

Wannabe terrorists are here, and they don’t shop at gun shows

The arrest of two suspected would-be terrorists who allegedly plotted to attack a Seattle-area military recruiting office shows that the Pacific Northwest is not immune to dangerous nutballs, and also revealed one other thing: they did not go shopping for weapons at a local gun show.

Two More Pro-Gun Bills Head to Louisiana’s Governor


Friday, June 24, 2011
 
After passing in the state House and Senate respectively, House Bill 489 and Senate Bill 39  now await Governor Bobby Jindal’s signature to become law. 

 

SB 39, sponsored by state Senators Eric LaFleur (D-28) and Neil Riser (R-32), would clarify that Louisianans may purchase a long gun in any state, and allow a citizen of any other state to purchase a long gun in Louisiana, so long as both states allow such purchases. 

 

HB 489, introduced by state Representative Alan Seabaugh (R-5), would remove the requirement that an individual must wait six months to acquire “resident” status to apply for a concealed handgun permit. 

 

Please contact Governor Jindal and urge him to sign SB 39 and HB 489 into law.  Governor Jindal can be e-mailed by clicking here.

Governor Jindal has already signed two pro-gun bills: House Bill 169 and House Bill 294. 

HB 169, introduced by state Representative Cameron Henry (R-82), will allow Louisianans to use firearms fitted with lawfully-possessed sound suppressors while hunting nongame nuisance quadrupeds, including feral hogs, coyotes, armadillos, nutria and beaver.  Sound suppressors reduce noise complaints, recoil, and hearing loss while increasing accuracy. 

HB 294, introduced by state Representative Major Thibaut (D-18), will remove the requirement to acquire a special permit to trap feral hogs and remove the limitation on the types of firearms used for hunting nongame nuisance quadrupeds including feral hogs, coyotes, armadillos, nutria, and beaver.
