Leftist Propagandist “Columnist” Wants to Kill NRA Members, Drag GOP Leaders Behind Trucks

January 1, 2013 1 comment

TWG: As if we need yet another reason to loathe the hypocritical gun grabbing idiots.   I sure do wish these dirty little beasts would shut those gaping holes in that thing they call a “face” and try  DOING what they consistently threaten to do to us.  If a Conservative threatened to “tie barack obama and nancy pelosi  to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light…”  the streets would be a war zone and the media would be on a rampage.  They’d also be arrested for hate crimes. Bullies and sissies make threats like this all the time with no follow through.  That’s how bullies and sissies roll.  And as soon as the victims punch back, they whine and squeal about how “mean” the victims are.   Note to the glassy eyeds: SHUT THE FUCK UP AND TRY FOLLOWING THROUGH ON ALL THESE VIOLENT THREATS YOU SPEW.  WE’RE WAITING FOR YOU….IN OUR TRUCKS.

FROM THE SNOUT OF donald kaul  “I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control,” he wrote. Is that a threatening James Byrd reference? “And if that didn’t work, I’d adopt radical measures.” This was how he spelled out the other agenda items, which included killing NRA members who wouldn’t surrender their arms”…..(Con’t)

NRA and LaPierre unite disarmament advocates as gun owners remain divided

December 22, 2012 1 comment

 

At least he didn’t overtly telegraph concessions on guns. My worst fear was that National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre’s Friday press statement was going to find something to offer the mob in the hopes that it would somehow appease the blood lust, metaphoric and otherwise, being directed at NRA members and at gun owners in general.

I ventured a faint fantasy hope for leadership that would inspire gun owner unity in the face of the most intense and pervasive firestorm of directed hatred I’ve ever witnessed. That “national conversation on guns” the antis said they wanted was (surprise!) always intended to be a monologue — they get to speak and demand and impose, and you get to agree. But, and we’ll see not without valid reasons, gun owners remain divided, with people I respect giving thumbs up and down for LaPierre’s performance.

What he offered was troubling for some, me included, and not just because NRA’s “Safety Shield” program proposing that the feds pay for armed police officers in schools is essentially a massive expansion of what Bill Clinton wanted to do — which in itself ought to expose how fraudulent those on the left now howling at LaPierre truly are. It’s also telling to see the usual suspects come out against the very principle of armed school resource officers. And to prove their point, they cite Columbine, failing to take into account that the killers withdrew when taking in return fire and went on to softer targets — while those “professionals” entrusted to protect and serve took cover rather than pursuit, leaving the murderers free to go about their butchery unopposed.

University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Wants Gun Rights Advocates “BEATEN TO DEATH” and NRA Heads “On A Stick”

This is a college “PROFESSOR”.  Why is this evil thing still at the pulpit spewing his LIES to our kids and promoting this violence and bigotry? Parents? Anyone?

University of Rhode Island professor’s retweet: Murder anyone who thinks teachers should be armed

Posted at 11:42 am on December 18, 2012 by Twitchy Staff | View Comments

First fucker to say the solution is for elementary school teachers to carry guns needs to get beaten to death.

Four days ago, Erik Loomis, an assistant professor of American history at the University of Rhode Island, retweeted the above tweet. In case it disappears down the memory hole, here’s a .jpg captured for posterity:

erik loomis RT

That was just one of Loomis’ many angry, profane tweets/retweets bashing pro-gun organizations and individuals such as NRA chief Wayne LaPierre in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn.

14 Dec 12

@ErikLoomis heartbroken more than anything, then complete visceral anger

@rmccrory I was heartbroken in the first 20 mass murders. Now I want Wayne LaPierre’s head on a stick.

Looks like the National Rifle Association has murdered some more children.

14 Dec 12

There are just no words

@fmanjoo There are words. Fuck the National Rifle Association and its policies to put crazy guns in everyone’s hands.

You are goddamn right we should politicize this tragedy. Fuck the NRA. Wayne LaPierre should be in prison.

Wayne LaPierre is a criminal and should be in prison for complicity with murder. 27 counts.

Dear Republicans, Do you know the definition of family values? It’s not having our kids FUCKING SHOT AT SCHOOL!! Fuck the NRA.

It’s harder to buy Sudafed in a pharmacy that high-caliber rifle bullets. Fuck the NRA.

Can we define NRA membership dues as contributing to a terrorist organization?

I bet terrorist NRA head Wayne LaPierre will sleep well tonight.

Larry Pratt and the group Gun Owners of America are terrorists and should be dealt with as such. thinkprogress.org/justice/2012/1…

Idiot of the day: Eugene Volokh, for arguing we should arm school teachers. volokh.com/2012/12/14/a-t…

The NRA pushes for policies that make it complicit in mass murders in the US and Mexico. Repeal the 2nd Amendment.

Another day, another NRA facilitated terrorist attack. This morning at an Alabama hospital. abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/p…

Your daily NRA-facilitated terrorism. San Antonio this time. thedailybeast.com/cheats/2012/12…

He calls it an “intimidation campaign” when websites such as Campus Reform, quote what he said about Wayne LaPierre:

The right-wing intimidation campaign against me for saying the NRA was a terrorist organization continues. Will not succeed.

17 Dec 12

@ErikLoomis no, but seriously, fuck those people. don’t let them threaten you into silence.

@NeilAnAlien Indeed they will not. In fact, I’d like to write up my story of right-wing intimidation for a magazine.

The Venn diagram between those who are trying to intimidate me and those who think Obama is the Kenyan usurper is sizable.

He backs away from his “head on a stick” comment but doubles down on his view that Wayne LaPierre should be imprisoned:

Dear right-wing morons, saying you “want someone’s head on a stick” is a metaphor. I know metaphor is hard for you to understand.

Dear rightwingers, to be clear, I don’t want to see Wayne LaPierre dead. I want to see him in prison for the rest of his life.

Even when not addressing guns,  Loomis seems to have significant anger and anxiety issues:

16 Dec 12

@ErikLoomis At least for me, trashy tv is better relaxant than movies, but obviously YMMV.

@jacremes Bad TV makes me angry.

How do people relax after writing without alcohol? Am trying, failing. A jumble of nerves, determined no one will ever publish the book.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the need for access to mental health services. We hope Loomis seeks the help he so obviously needs.

*******[UPDATE]*******

Rhode Island professor Erik Loomis deletes his Twitter account; Update: What is he hiding?

Posted at 1:53 pm on December 18, 2012 by Twitchy Staff | View Comments

What do you do when you are an assistant professor at a public university and you’ve been caught red-handed retweeting a tweet advocating murder?

If you’re University of Rhode Island professor Erik Loomis, you delete your entire Twitter account.

Here is what his page looked like about 20 minutes ago:

erik loomis assistant professor002

Here is what it looks like now:

sorry

We’re glad he won’t be advocating violence on Twitter any longer. Hopefully, he will use the freed-up time to seek help from a mental health professional.

Update: What exactly is Loomis hiding? Before he deleted his Twitter account, we managed to make note of a few of his angrier tweets (no screen caps, sorry):

“Nothing makes me more angry than being ordered what to do. Usuallly good at checking emotions, am now in towering rage at laptop-banning bar”

“@drfarls You have no idea how much I wanted to break my glass over that guy’s head.”

This was interesting, too:

“I love teaching books on the history of sexuality. I talked about dildos in a completely appropriate way in class today.”

HERE IS ERIK LOOMIS’ BLOG AT LAWYERS, GUNS & MONEY: http://www.lawyersgunsmoneyblog.com/author/erik-loomis

It appears that thing’s colleagues, family and the police are now involved. Thank God the police paid it a visit and questioned it as to it’s violent outbursts and vitriolic hate speech.

Here’s an excerpt from that thing’s web blog:

“The last couple of days have been a bit challenging for me. Being attacked by a David Horowitz wannabe for saying I wanted to see Wayne LaPierre’s head on a stick has led to a world of fun, ranging from a meeting with the Rhode Island State Police last night to people inundating the University of Rhode Island community with warnings of their murderous colleague in their midst.

So to clarify, I want to make it blindingly clear that I did not call for the assassination of Wayne LaPierre. In my world, calling for someone’s head on a stick is a metaphor to hold them responsible for their actions. I think the last time “head on a stick” actually meant murder was sometime around 1450. That anyone would take this seriously as a murder threat is completely absurd. What stinks about it is that it has now involved my family, colleagues, and university. So I’ll apologize to them and to anyone legitimately offended by my metaphor.”

NRA Supported Politician Wins “Gun Control” (Anti-Second Amendment) Award

NRA director-supported politician wins gun control award

 

The Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence presented awards to two Prairie State politicians, the Associated Press reported today. Governor Pat Quinn and outgoing Rep. Bob Dold were both given leadership awards last week, Quinn for trying to ban semi-automatic firearms, and “suburban Chicago Republican” Dold for “cross[ing] party lines to oppose ‘dangerous’ gun legislation.”

Replacing another Republican gun-grabber Mark Kirk in January, 2011, Dold’s anti-gun sympathies have been clear from the start. The political positions reporting website, “On the Issues,” revealed Dold “Supports restricting gun purchase & possession,” dating their entry “Nov. 2010.”

Your Help Is Needed In Support of BATFE Reform Bills S. 941 And H.R. 2296

February 2, 2010 Leave a comment

This article can be found on the NRA-ILA Website: www.nraila.org

(NOTE: I HAVE NOT PERSONALLY READ THESE BILLS, SO I CANNOT SAY THAT I WOULD BACK THEM AT THIS POINT. AS SOON AS I’VE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO READ THEM I WILL POST MY NOTES)

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

As we’ve been reporting for months, Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) have introduced S. 941, the “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Reform and Firearms Modernization Act of 2009” in the U.S. Senate.

Representatives Steve King (R-Iowa) and Zack Space (D-Ohio) have introduced a companion bill—H.R. 2296—in the U.S. House. The bills would roll back unnecessary restrictions, correct errors, and codify longstanding congressional policies in the firearms arena.

These bipartisan bills are a vital step to modernize and improve BATFE operations. Of highest importance, S. 941and H.R. 2296 totally rewrite the system of administrative penalties for licensed dealers, manufacturers and importers of firearms. Currently, for most violations, BATFE can only give a federal firearms license (FFL) holder a warning, or revoke his license.

S. 941 and H.R. 2296 would allow fines or license suspensions for less serious violations, while still allowing license revocation for the kind of serious violations that would block an investigation or put guns in the hands of criminals. This will help prevent the all-too-common situations where BATFE has revoked licenses for insignificant technical violations—such as improper use of abbreviations or filing records in the wrong order.

Among its other provisions, S. 941 and H.R. 2296 would: · Clarify the standard for “willful” violations—allowing penalties for intentional, purposeful violations of the law, but not for simple paperwork mistakes. · Improve the process for imposing penalties, notably by allowing FFLs to appeal BATFE penalties to a neutral administrative law judge, rather than to an employee of BATFE itself. · Allow a licensee a period of time to liquidate inventory when he goes out of business.

During this period, all firearms sold would be subject to a background check by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. · Allow a grace period for people taking over an existing firearms business to correct problems in the business’s records—so if a person inherited a family gun store (for example), the new owner couldn’t be punished for the previous owner’s recordkeeping violations. · Reform the procedures for consideration of federal firearms license applications.

Under S. 941, denial of an application would require notification to the applicant, complete with reasons for the denial. Additionally, an applicant would be allowed to provide supplemental information and to have a hearing on the application. · Require BATFE to establish clear investigative guidelines. · Clarify the licensing requirement for gunsmiths, distinguishing between repair and other gunsmith work and manufacture of a firearm.

This would stop BATFE from arguing that minor gunsmithing or refinishing activities require a manufacturers’ license. · Eliminate a provision of the Youth Handgun Safety Act that requires those under 18 to have written permission to use a handgun for lawful purposes (such as competitive shooting or safety training)—even when the parent or guardian is present. · Permanently ban creation of a centralized electronic index of out of business dealers’ records—a threat to gun owners’ privacy that Congress has barred through appropriations riders for more than a decade. · Allow importation and transfer of new machineguns by firearm and ammunition manufacturers for use in developing or testing firearms and ammunition, and training customers.

In particular, ammunition manufacturers fulfilling government contracts need to ensure that their ammunition works reliably. S. 941 and H.R. 2296 would also provide for the transfer and possession of new machineguns by professional film and theatrical organizations. · Repeal the Brady Act’s “interim” waiting period provisions, which expired in 1998. · Give BATFE sole responsibility for receiving reports of multiple handgun sales. (Currently, dealers also have to report multiple sales to state or local agencies, a requirement that has shown little or no law enforcement value.)

State and local agencies could receive these reports upon request to BATFE, but would have to comply strictly with current requirements to destroy these records after 20 days, unless the person buying the guns turns out to be prohibited from receiving firearms. · Restore a policy that allowed importation of barrels, frames and receivers for non-importable firearms, when they can be used as repair or replacement parts. S. 941 represents the first time such BATFE reform legislation has been introduced in the Senate.

However, the House passed similar legislation (H.R. 5092) in the 109th Congress by a 277-131 vote. A majority of the House–224 congressmen–cosponsored H.R. 4900 in the 110th Congress. A fact sheet on S. 941/H.R. 2296 can be found here.

As of this writing, S. 941 has 20 cosponsors, and H.R. 2296 has 201 cosponsors. Please be sure to contact your U.S. Senators and Representative, and ask them to cosponsor and support S. 941 and H.R. 2296!

You can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121, and your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121.

GOP Bans Senator Pam Roach from Caucus

January 30, 2010 1 comment

This is infuriating!  Senator Pam Roach (D-WA 31) is a strong proponent of our Second Amendment and has done an amazing job in spite of being surrounded by the liberal socialists here in Washington State.  She’s a no-nonsense Republican who doesn’t allow others to shove her around and she works for her CONSTITUENTS.  She’s a life member of NRA and she’s always stood up against those who would attempt to destroy our rights.

She’s also strong on DSHS (particularly related to Child Protective Services) and Education Reform and she walks the talk when it comes to voting on legislation that’s truly FOR THE PEOPLE here in Washington State.

For the GOP to pull this is nothing less than juvenile and petulant and we here in Washington aren’t going to stand by and condone this nonsense without making our voices heard.  Senator Roach’s experience and efforts in serving her constituents and the State of Washington are exemplary should be applauded, not condemned by the GOP.

Sen. Pam Roach voted out of Republican caucus | Roach calls caucus a ‘star chamber’

By DENNIS BOX
Covington Reporter Editor
Today, 4:52 PM

The Senate Republican caucus voted Sen. Pam Roach, R-Auburn out of the caucus meetings for this Legislative session and the remainder of the year.

According to Roach both sides can revisit the issue when the 2011 Legislative session convenes.

The Seattle Times posted a story earlier on its Web site.

Roach said the issue stems from an incident between Mike Hoover, the Republican Senate attorney and herself during a 2009 caucus meeting. According to the senator there was discussion in the caucus meeting concerning whether a press release for another Republican senator should be sent out.

“I asked him, ‘What are we paying you for?’,” Roach said during a phone interview today. “Was I outspoken to him? Yes.”

Roach said she later apologized to Hoover.

According to the Roach, Sen. Mike Hewitt, R-Walla Walla, Senate minority leader, is behind the move against her. She stated the two senators were involved in an argument at a caucus meeting.

Roach said during a phone interview today, she was in trouble with the caucus because, “I have been vocal pointing out the failings of leadership. We have a myriad of problems in our caucus.”

The senator said being booted out of the caucus does not affect her ability vote on measures or her committee assignments.

“It’s uncommon, but it doesn’t affect the voters,” Roach said. “I work the district very hard.”

Roach said when the caucus voted to ban her, “(I) no opportunity to talk (and) I had no idea what was happening…. It’s not like a court of law. It is a star chamber.”

Today’s WA State Senate Judiciary Committee Meeting SB 6396 VIDEO

January 26, 2010 Leave a comment

The trip to Olympia was attended by approximately 200 Washington State Second Amendment Advocates, which is saying a lot since it was held at our State Capitol in Olympia (a long drive for most people), and the fact that it’s a weekday, which required that most attendees take a day off work to attend.

 

Our groups accounted for 98% of the attendees there! over half of us had to be seated in an “overflow room” down the hall (which was also filled to capacity, requiring some to stand in the halls!) where we watched the proceedings live on screen.

 

It was an amazing show of solidarity and vigilance on our part and I am thrilled! We far outnumbered those who’s desire it is to decimate our second amendment rights and render the American People defenseless against criminals with this preemptive blast of un-constitutional legislation.

 

We were clearly a unified force to be reckoned with!

 

 

We, The People need to be ever vigilant in upholding our Constitution because *most* (not all!) of the people who took an oath to protect it aren’t keeping that oath.

 

 

Our “Representatives” in each and every State Capitol and in DC need to understand one very simple message……Fidelity to the Constitution, our Bill Of Rights, our Declaration Of Independence is an absolute MUST in their positions. Anything otherwise, we will vote them out of their seats and replace them with those who will keep their solemn oath to do so.

 

To the politicians and officials who treat our rights as if they were privileges that they might limit or remove at will, we say that we have had enough. You have overstepped your bounds and cut away at that which no government, no legislature, no agency, no referendum, no majority, and no power of any sort may trespass against except at its own peril.

 

 

You have awakened the Giant, and We, The People are closely monitoring the activities of ALL of our politicians and government bureaucrats who threaten liberty, and to share such information as we gather with others who also value freedom so that those who engage in abuses can no longer hide behind official anonymity.

 

Firearms owners are clearly losing rights with each new firearms law. We’re constantly trying to correct statistics, and those against our second amendment rights don’t even want to be educated because they are convinced regardless of all that information that the real problem is that the (evil) firearms owners have hate and violence in their hearts. They could not be more wrong.

 

There were several points during the hearing where Senator Kline (D), the sponsor of this bill, was clearly agitated to see so many Freedom loving American Citizens in the building. His behaviour was disgraceful throughout the hearing and it’s shocking that we’ve actually allowed such obviously biased and unprofessional individual to represent the State of Washington. Can’t wait for him to start behaving like Senator Alan Grayson down in FL. Gag.

 

Senator Kline, You and your fellow cronies will be voted out of office at the soonest opportunity. Bet on THAT. You’re an embarrassment to our Great State and we will not tolerate such abhorrent behavior in OUR House. Polish up your resume, Mr. Kline, and get ready to join the unemployment lines with the rest of us peons.

 

 

And to Senator Pam Roach… BRAVO!!! You, Madam, are a true Patriot and we are so proud of you for asking the questions that needed to be asked and for not allowing Mr. Kline to railroad the proceedings and to bully you around! You are someone We, The People NEED and WANT as our Representative here in Washington State and, although I’m not in your District, we support your efforts and will definitely pass the word to those in your district (I was born here! LOTS of Friends and Family in Auburn!) who can make sure you have the support you need to stand up to the bullies in Olympia.

 

 

Senator Roach, THANK YOU from ALL OF US! I wish you could have heard and seen the applause, smiles, “hoorahs” and laughter with every single word you spoke today! YOU ARE A TRUE PATRIOT! I know you’ve had a lot to deal with here in Socialist-run Washington State, and I comend you for your diligence. Please don’t ever give up or give in. WE’RE BEHIND YOU!!! (Your question about “how many bullets does it take to kill?” was PRICELESS!! Particularly the fact that Chief Pillo apparently didn’t know the answer!) HA!

 

 

Ok…. Now….. There’s something that’s deeply bothering me with today’s proceeding and I don’t think I can let it go.

 

 

Our Police Chief from Bellevue, Linda Pillo, attended the proceedings in support of this horrendous bill. This was quite shocking given the fact that most Police Officers across this country SUPPORT our Second Amendment Rights, have sworn a solemn oath to protect our Constitutional Rights, and would NEVER support such far-reaching, partisan and anti-Constitutional legislation.

 

 

 

When Chief Pillo approached the table to give her support of SB 6396, she prefaced her testimony saying that she was expressing her own PERSONAL beliefs and that it had nothing whatsoever to do with her position as Police Chief.

 

 

 

Chief Pillo is entitled to her own personal opinion on the matter, but SHE WAS IN FULL UNIFORM! I’m no Lawyer by any means, but I’m fairly certain there are laws against having members of our Police Force supporting partisan political issues while in uniform. If there’s not, then there should be. I’ll be following up on that with some local Constitutional attorneys and will update you all as information is confirmed either way.

Here’s video of the proceedings for your entertainment. Enjoy!    http://www.tvw.org/media/MediaPlayer.cfm?evid=2010010151&TYPE=V&bhcp=1
