Gun Accidents At Home
Bloomberg's money has merged his Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for increased gun control with a new group called “Everytown for Gun Safety."
The National Safety council announces the annual number of unintentional firearm-related fatalities is down 81 percent since 1929. Since 1988, the number has dropped 78 percent.
Motor vehicle accidents account for 38 percent of all accidental deaths for children 14 and under. Suffocation accounts for 28 percent and drowning for 16 percent of accidental child deaths. More children die for exposure to hot and cold weather than by firearms.
One percent of child deaths under the age of 14 is attributed to firearms. More people are injured while bowling than hunting.
The fact that firearms and hunting are more safe than many recreational activities is no accident. Companies like Cabela's, organizations like the NRA, and hunter safety classes have combine to make shooting sports one of the safest family activities.
On September 16 and 17, Cabela's in KCK brought out a Daisy BB Gun Range for parents and their children to work on their rifle safety skills. Similar activities and seminars were held in La Vista and Wichita.
Ferguson raises a number of concerns across the United States.
Can police be trusted to keep communities safe? With one side claiming Brown was a "gentle giant" victim with his hand up and the officer's perspective still a mystery, the question is, "Will police act in the future? Or will they stand off and let property and civilian lives be at the mercy of vandals and mob rule?
On the one side A woman called into TheBlaze TV host Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday, claiming Brown rushed the officer moments after pushing him into his squad car, punching him in the face and trying to grab the cop’s gun.
“Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bum rushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something,” the caller added. “The final shot was in the forehead, and then he fell about two or three feet in front of the officer.”
Even if true, will officers across the United States now turn their backs when thugs steel, assault, and threaten civilians or the officer. Ferguson has created an environment where police officers have a higher incentive to back off rather than take action to protect and serve the community.
The media, the nation, the president, and even the police have rushed to judgement like a hanging party in a Clint Eastwood movie to hang 'em high without a trial.
Even the police have judged the officer: "Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol says Black Panthers are in Ferguson to help."
Holder to Backdoor Gun Control
Holder want to Explore Gun Tracking Bracelets DOJ requesting $2 million for ‘Gun Safety Technology’ grants
“I think that one of the things that we learned when we were trying to get passed those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I had a meeting with a group of technology people and we talked about how guns can be made more safe,” Eric Holder said. “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or something that you might wear, how guns can be used only by the person who is lawfully in possession of the weapon.”
He goes on to argue "[W]e can make sure that people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights, but at the same time decreasing the misuse of weapons that lead to the kinds of things that we see on a daily basis.”
On the surface, it might seem reasonable to the anti-Constitutional crowd - but fails to meet even the basics. First, if technology can be built, it can be bypassed. Second, if it that great of an idea, use the technology on police, FBI, CIA, Homeland, the IRS and the military for ten years. Then we can see how it works!
Third, the Constitution demands government protect the rights of those people who respect the rights of others. It protects the process of taking those rights away. If the technology is available and the law abiding person wants that option - it can be supported. However, we already have that technology in the form of trigger locks and safes.
This effort only attacks the lawful, not the lawless. Gangs will still have their guns (sold to Mexican gangs by Holder - Fast and Furious - and issued/resold to US gangs) .
The United States has become a nation that disrespects the rule of law. The President and federal government bypasses a Congress that has abdicated its legislative powers under Article I to the power of the Executive and the progressive movement that now controls both parties (RINO).
This effort is simply to force citizens to give up their Bill of Rights for the Progressive Movements replacement: The Bill of Obligations.
Democrat Conspiracies To Arm Islamic Militants, Accept Bribes, Funnel $, Voter Fraud, & Corruption...
Alleged arms trafficker, and anti-gun California Democratic State Senator Leland Yee knew that an arms deal he was attempting to facilitate would send money to the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (M.I.L.F.) in exchange for weapons, and that those weapons were intended to be imported into the U.S., and distributed in North Africa, and Italy. These allegations, along with the allegations below were revealed in the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint against Yee and his co-conspirators.
The M.I.L.F. is a secessionist movement in the Philippines whose goal is to establish an independent homeland that will be governed by sharia (Islamic Law).
Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon resigned after being arrested by the FBI on corruption charges in a FBI sting operation. The FBI charged that Democrat Mayor Cannon wanted far more than to help the poor in his city. He allegedly wanted to line his own pockets by demanding bribes from developers for the right to build in his town. He was charged with theft, bribery, fraud, and extortion.
Then Rhode Island Democratic House Speaker Gordon Fox abruptly resigned after an FBI raid on his State House office.
Rhode Island Speaker of the House Gordon Fox was calling the House into session at the Statehouse, in Providence, R.I. Law enforcement officials raided the Democratic House speaker’s office and home Friday, March 21, 2014, as part of an investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office, FBI, IRS and state police.
In California, powerful Democratic State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested alongside his partner-in-crime, a gangster arms dealer. Yee was charged with wire fraud, conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally importing firearms. Yee allegedly accepted $42,000 for introducing an arms buyer to an arms dealer. Investigators said Yee was helping the arms buyer obtain weapons such as shoulder-fired missiles, from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines, in order to pay off campaign debts. Yee was a big gun control advocate – meaning his goal was to take guns away from honest law-abiding citizens.
Democrat Sen. Rod Wright faces voter fraud charges. Democrat Sen. Rod Calderon faces federal charges for accepting $100,000 in bribes for passing bills.
A Philadelphia newspaper reported that the Pennsylvania Attorney General caught four leading Philadelphia Democrat politicians (members of the Pennsylvania House delegation) accepting bribes, but the entire investigation was shut down when a new Democrat Attorney General took office.
The new Democrat Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane claimed the investigation was “racist.” Sources familiar with the sting in Philadelphia say offers of bribes were made to both Republicans and Democrats, but only Democrats took the money.
Pennsylvania Democratic State Sen. LeAnna Washington was charged with corruption.
Democratic Nevada Sen. Harry Reid gave $31,249 in campaign funds to his granddaughter Ryan Elizabeth Reid for “holiday gift expenditures.” Reid claimed there was nothing wrong with what he did. The recipient of the $31,000 in “gift expenditures” was listed on his Federal Elections Commission form as “Ryan Elizabeth.” Reid conveniently left off the last name “Reid” for his granddaughter. Using campaign funds for personal use (like enriching family members) is a crime. Jesse Jackson Jr. was convicted for similar charges and is currently serving time at The Federal Correctional Complex in Butner, N.C.
UKRAINE Gun Owner's Association Demands 2nd Amendment Rights!
As Russians march into the Ukraine, the Ukraine Gun Owners Association wants the new government to add their own right to bear arms to the country’s constitution.
As of today Ukrainian Gun Owners Association will start to work on the preparation of amendments to the Constitution, which will provide an unconditional right for Ukrainian citizens to bear arms.
People gathered in Independence Square in Kiev after President Viktor Yanukovich rejected a European Union trade deal for a $15 billion bailout from Russia in November. It was relatively peaceful for three months, but violence escalated on February 18. Over 70 people died during the week and amateur videos showed snipers shooting at unarmed protesters.
People should have the right to bear arms, which will be put in written into the Constitution.
Authorities should not and will not be stronger than its people!
Armed people are treated with respect!
America’s founding fathers implemented the second amendment because it is a natural right for people to defend themselves.
According to GunPolicy.org, Ukraine’s gun laws are described as restrictive. The government owns seven million guns while there are only three million guns for private citizens. A citizen must prove they have a legitimate reason to own a firearm.
This is one more example that governments cannot protect us - always!
Which is the best conceal and carry option? Until now, I have always carried Beretta firearms. That may change with my new Taurus!
We recently added a new Conceal and Carry option to our gun bag. With its lightweight 22 oz. polymer frame, thin profile, and ramped 3.2 inch barrel, the newly designed Millennium G2 is the ideal concealed carry handgun. It just might replace my Beretta Storm.
It is available in two compact models—PT 111 and PT 140—the Millennium G2 features an accessory rail, high-profile sights, an aggressive, textured grip and melted edges for added comfort and easy concealment.
Taurus family of semi-auto pistols now feature the Taurus Security System, which provides instant-ready defense with built-in ability to secure your pistol and make it inoperable at the turn of a key. When the Security System is engaged, the pistol cannot be fired or cocked and the gun's manual safety cannot be disengaged. As with our revolver Security System, the device is part of the firearm and cannot be lost, and the same special Security Key works for both the revolver and pistol Systems (two keys come with each gun).
To engage: simply insert the Key into the button on the rear or side of the pistol and rotate one-quarter turn clockwise. This engages the Security System. The manual safety cannot be moved and the trigger cannot be pulled. To disengage: simply rotate the key one-quarter turn back. This releases the Security System, yet leaves the pistol's manual safety in the "safe" position until you are ready to release it yourself and fire the gun.
It is certainly of the last Consequence to a free Country that the Militia, which is its natural Strength, should be kept upon the most advantageous Footing.
A standing Army, however necessary it may be at some times, is always dangerous to the Liberties of the People. The Militia is composed of free Citizens.
Soldiers are apt to consider themselves as a Body distinct from the rest of the Citizens. They have their Arms always in their hands. Their Rules and their Discipline is severe. They soon become attached to their officers and disposed to yield implicit Obedience to their Commands. Such a Power should be watch with a jealous Eye.
I have a good Opinion of the principal officers of our Army. I esteem them as Patriots as well as Soldiers. But if this War continues, as it may for years yet to come, we know not who may succeed them. Men who have been long subject to military Laws and inured to military Customs and Habits, may lose the Spirit and Feeling of Citizens.
And even Citizens, having been used to admire the Heroism which the Commanders of their own Army have displayed, and to look up to them as their Saviors may be prevailed upon to surrender to them those Rights for the protection of which against Invaders they had employed and paid them.
We have seen too much of this Disposition among some of our Countrymen. The Militia is composed of free Citizens. There is therefore no Danger of their making use of their Power to the destruction of their own Rights, or suffering others to invade them.
Samuel Adams, to James Warren, January 7 1776
1910 Swedish Mauser (M96)
We recently added a 1910 Swedish Mauser in excellent condition to our collection. It came with all numbers matching on plates, bayonet with excellent scabbard, cleaning kits, and original ammo in the ammo box. It also has the sight adjustment indicator and armorer's range accuracy sighting sticker: 3" groups at 300 meters.
"Swedish Mausers" are a family of bolt-action rifles based on an improved variant of Mauser's earlier Model 1893, but using the 6.5×55mm cartridge, and incorporating unique design elements as requested by Sweden. These are the m/94 (Model 1894) carbine, m/96 (Model 1896) long rifle, m/38 (Model 1938) short rifle and m/41 (Model 1941) sniper rifle. In 1898 production began at Carl Gustafs stads Gevärsfaktori in Eskilstuna, Sweden.
All Swedish Mausers were chambered for the 6.5×55mm cartridge, and all Swedish-made actions were proof-tested with a single 6.5×55mm proof round developing approximately 455 MPa (65,992 psi) piezo pressure (55,000 CUP). Swedish Mausers were manufactured by Waffenfabrik Mauser Oberndorf a/N in Germany and in Sweden by Carl Gustafs stads Gevärsfaktori and Husqvarna Vapenfabriks Aktiebolag. All Swedish Mausers, whether built in Germany or Sweden, were fabricated using a Swedish-supplied high-grade tool steel alloyed with nickel, copper, and vanadium, a product noted for its strength and corrosion resistance.

Illinois AG Madigan wants more time to decide how to keep citizens defenseless
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft
... "On Monday, [Illinois State Attorney General] Madigan pulled one more arrow from her quiver. With the May 23 deadline for her decision on whether or not to file a Supreme Court appeal fast approaching, and with no sign that a legislative solution is in the offing within that time frame, she is asking the Court to extend the deadline until June 24. From the Chicago Sun-Times:"
"Madigan would have until June 24 to file a petition for appeal with the high court if it grants her office the 30-day extension. ..."
"This seems a rather desperate move. For one thing, even if the Supreme Court grants her extension, the June 9 deadline for passing a law--or letting concealed carry go unregulated--is still in place. ..." .

A tale of two rallies
Submitted by: John Pierce
"This morning I was reading the press coverage of last week’s Stop The NRA 'rally' in DC."
"Despite the fact that it only attracted a whopping 60 attendees, it received quite a bit of positive attention from the mainstream media."
"Now … let’s compare that to another rally that took place last week with practically no media attention."
"On Tuesday April 23rd, I drove the 430 miles from Bristol Virginia to Harrisburg Pennsylvania for the 8th annual Right to Keep and Bear Arms Rally."
"This rally, which takes place every year, is a gathering of Pennsylvania gun owners who travel to the state capitol to let their voices be heard by those who represent them." So how did the two rallies compare?

Furthermore, we are told that 'the gun lobby' (which, remember, is being used as just another term for the NRA) is motivated only by fealty to its gun industry masters, and the desire to protect industry profits." ...
