Have officials 'willfully conspired' to cover up ATF record errors?

"Yesterday we looked at a real-world example illustrating both the inaccuracy of the [ATF's] National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record (NFRTR) as well as explored potential dangers gun owners could face as a result. Today we're going to document the probability that this was not just an isolated case, but an indication of system-wide incompetence, negligence, deception and cover-up that reaches throughout and beyond the agency, extending to those charged with providing audit oversight."

"We've also talked about the Friesen case. ..."

"What follows is the Motion in Limine from that case. It is long. It is detailed. I can't urge you strongly enough to read it and understand what it is demonstrating. ..." ...

"Well, folks, the Second Amendment March is now less than 100 days away, and I can feel the momentum building, swelling, growing like a live organism beneath my feet. I feel as if I've been pushing on a giant rock for the past ten months, pushing as hard as I can for all I'm worth. Pushing when I'm tired. Pushing when I'm sore. And pushing when I'm discouraged."

"But I have good news for you. Last week I pushed and the rock moved. And not just a little, but a lot!"

"Last week we added our first two corporate sponsors: United States Concealed Carry Association and Front Sight Firearms Institute." ...
 

Safer Streets 2010: Answering L.A. Times Blogger Sandy Banks

"Gun control is a public servant attack on the sovereignty of the electorate. Incrementally, gun control has worsened our streets and taken the spirit of the people along with their guns."

"In yesterday's Los Angeles Times Blog, writer Sandy Banks invited comments to show her more about guns. I thought it was a great opportunity from a writer willing to learn more. It's hard to talk about guns without educating the new shooter about liberty, U.S. History and what guns are really all about. It's made easy, though, when they have asked you. Sandy's Blog interrogatory put to us was this: 'Do you love your gun? Tell me why.'"

"Very well, and thanks, Sandy, for asking. A lot of the responses she asked for showed that it wasn't a love of the gun, but of what it means." ...
 

'Terror gap' laws would 'protect' us from Cub Scouts

... "A New York Times article from yesterday gives us another reason (if one were needed) to look askance at proposals to use the terrorist 'watch list' as grounds for denial of the Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms. What reason would that be? The list is so bloated that it includes an 8-year-old Cub Scout, who has been on the list since he was 2."
"'Meet Mikey Hicks,' said Najlah Feanny Hicks, introducing her 8-year-old son, a New Jersey Cub Scout and frequent traveler who has seldom boarded a plane without a hassle because he shares the name of a suspicious person."
"Now that sounds like a list formed with protection of basic human rights in mind, doesn't it? ..." ...

"When individual citizens ignore the law and carry on as they please, they can be prosecuted in civil or criminal courts, to punish their behavior."

"But what happens when government ignores the law because elected officials have a philosophical disagreement with the letter and the spirit of said law? What are the citizens to do?"

"When former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels and his administration clearly ignored state statute regarding firearms regulation and adopted a firearms ban in city parks – in violation of the state’s long-standing model preemption statute adopted in 1983 – legal action followed. ..." ...

"Chicago and Oak Park have filed their brief [.pdf] with the U.S. Supreme Court in the McDonald v. Chicago Second Amendment case. By way of review, this case will decide whether the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution applies against the states, a process also known as Incorporation. Originally, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution served as restrictions against the Federal Government only. With the passage of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Constitutional rights and restrictions were now to be applied equally against the states." ...

"Hundreds of businesses in the shooting sports industry are helping to protect the guns rights of Americans through the National Rifle Association’s 6-Point Plan for Business."

"Part of the industry-driven Insure Your Gun Rights campaign, this new opportunity allows companies to help build a stronger NRA and protect the Second Amendment from political opposition."

"For little or no cost, companies are partnering with the NRA in one or more ways outlined by the plan."

"This appears to be accurate. Both Ain't It Cool News and JoBlo.com have posted James Cameron's full 'Avatar' script. To triple-check I went to the 20th Century-Fox site and found that they posted the same script, as well. After being as careful as possible (wouldn't want to smear Cameron like he did the U.S. Marines. NOTE for Leftist hair-splitters: former Marines), I bring you a scene written by James Cameron that was cut from the final film but serves as a glimpse at the director's childish prejudices and mindset:"

"For years the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) has been rallying members to attend its annual Lobby Day at the Virginia General Assembly on Martin Luther King Day. In one respect this year is no different in that the League's Lobby Day is scheduled to start at 9AM on Monday, January 18, 2010 (Martin Luther King day)."

But in another respect 2010 is different - following impressive victories by pro-gun candidates for the House of Delegates, Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General, VCDL's 2010 VCDL Lobby Day theme is 'Transforming Gun Rights in Virginia.' And the group is expecting results." ...

"Back when I was guest-hosting a radio program last week with Cam Edwards, a caller asked him about why the NRA Political Victory Fund wasn't advertising up in Massachusetts. ..."

"I noted that because Massachusetts is a state with gun owners but still plenty of gun-control supporters, it wasn't the right state to run lots of television or radio ads. The message 'Scott Brown supports the Second Amendment' might motivate gun owners, but it might motivate gun-control supporters, too. I noted that activist organizations have other, more targeted ways of reaching voters besides broadcasting, and that these other methods — direct mail, e-mail, phone banking, etc. — would probably be more effective in these circumstances." ...

"Jeff Wilburn of Marietta is not a fan of Rep. Tim Bearden's bill, HB 615, or Sen. Mitch Seabuagh's bill, SB 308, either of which would repeal Georgia's unique public gathering law."

"In a pair of editorials today in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Tim Bearden writes a defense of why he believes HB 615 is necessary, and Jeff Wilburn writes an article opposing any reform of Georgia law. Mr. Wilburn writes, 'Left unchecked, these lawmakers will take us back to the wild west days of shootouts at the OK Corral. Their desire is to appease gun manufacturers, whose profits are the root cause of this push, and their lobbyist arm, the NRA, rather than the majority of Georgia citizens.'" ...

"A move that would have brought Snohomish County in line with Washington state laws that allow concealed firearms at county parks was rejected by the County Council on Wednesday."

"Republican County Councilman John Koster was disappointed that his proposal didn't win any support from his four Democratic colleagues. The lack of action, he said, left the county with 'a code that's essentially been repealed by the state.'"

"'I supposed when it comes to guns, it gets a little politically dicey,' Koster said."

"The county's 1971 law prohibits guns in county parks. But the state in the 1980s passed a law that prevented local governments from banning people who have concealed-weapons permits from possessing guns in public parks." ...

"A group of four State Senators has introduced Senate Bill 6396, legislation that would bring California-style gun-control to the Northwest and ultimately ban many semi-automatic firearms commonly owned by Washingtonians."

"This legislation would establish far-reaching restrictions on semi-automatic firearms (dubbing them 'assault weapons') and ammunition magazines. SB6396 affects every firearm modified to conform with the now-extinct Clinton Gun-Ban plus many other semi-automatic firearms that have no lineage to those rifles or any military-style orientation whatsoever." ...

"Indiana legislators who might vote for a law that would permit employees to bring guns to their jobs forfeit any right to later claim important bills could not get passed because there was not enough time in this short session."

"Voters need to demand nothing less."

"For the third consecutive session a bill has been introduced to make it legal to bring firearms to Indiana workplaces by prohibiting employers from weapon bans on workplace property."

"This might all seem a little surreal in this age of workplace violence, except that last year saw essentially the same bill gain Indiana Senate passage by a 42-8 vote before dying in the House for lack of a vote." ...

"Georgia is the only state in the nation with a "public gathering" law making it illegal to carry a firearm to or while at any public gathering. The term is undefined and leads to confusion among Georgia firearms license holders, police officers, lawyers, and judges alike."

"This one easy change would make the places in the public gathering law no longer "off limits" to those possessing a Georgia firearms license."

"In a 2008 academic paper, President Barack Obama's appointee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs advocated 'cognitive infiltration' of groups that advocate 'conspiracy theories' like the ones surrounding 9/11."

"Cass Sunstein, a Harvard law professor, co-wrote an academic article entitled 'Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures,' in which he argued that the government should stealthily infiltrate groups that pose alternative theories on historical events via 'chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine' those groups." ...

"A recently retired Philadelphia police officer has been held for trial after a young woman testified that he raped and sexually assaulted her -- sometimes several times a week -- for many years beginning when she was just 12 years old."

"The woman, now 24, testified at a preliminary hearing on Thursday that she first met 50-year-old former officer Tyrone Wiggins when she was ten years old. He was her karate instructor at the Olney Recreation Center."

"She says he befriended her family and within two years started having sex with her in his van, her house, his house, a hotel, and at the rec center."

"And she says he warned her not to tell anyone because he would lose his job, go to jail, and he would hurt her." ...
