IN: Obama and guns

Recently someone wrote they had never heard anything that indicated Obama wanted to ban guns. That is because it is one of the best kept secrets of the campaign.

Obama, who says he only wants "reasonable gun control," is on tape supporting the Washington, D.C., total handgun ban that effectively bans self-defense in your own home.

His Illinois Senate campaign called for a complete ban on semi-auto firearms.

He supported the Chicago handgun ban, and when the Illinois Senate voted to allow self-defense as a defense against prosecution, Obama voted to send people to jail if they had the audacity to defend themselves or their families in their own homes.
 

MO: Gun-rights groups oppose city proposal

Gun-rights groups are criticizing a city proposal to support legislation that would ban concealed weapons from city parks and sporting fields.

The state's concealed carry law prohibits guns in schools, government meetings or major sports stadiums that hold 5,000 fans. But it doesn't ban them in parks.

"Our concern is that these (parks) are areas where children gather and families," said Jodie Adams, director of the Springfield-Greene County Parks Department.

The City Council may actively work to ban guns from parks if it adopts a list of legislative priorities laid out Oct. 7 by its finance and administration committee.

I have not seen any letters in regard to Barack Obama and his ranting about taking away firearms from law-abiding U.S. citizens. Evidently, he is just poo-pooing and thumbing his nose at the Constitution of the United States and its 2nd Amendment.

This guy wants to make it illegal to have a hand gun for self-defense of you and your family, right in your own home. Just incredible! Another thing that Obama intends to do is ban hunting ammunition. This is just a couple of anti-gun ideas he wants to impose on the citizens of this country.

U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Metairie, hailed an agreement last week between gun lobbyists and New Orleans making the city return firearms confiscated during Hurricane Katrina.

Under the pact, the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation agree to drop a lawsuit against the city if it returns guns seized after the 2005 hurricane.

The police have said that they have 552 guns confiscated after the storm. The police contended most of the weapons were found in abandoned houses or were stolen guns. The gun groups contend police removed guns from people trying to leave the city.
 

PA: The Heller Gun Decision Week 15--Legal and Political Developments--With a Focus on Pennsylvania

This week’s review is going to be devoted more to political than legal matters but I did want to note a major legal development in Pennsylvania. On October 8, the Pennsylvania Legislature unanimously gave final passage to and sent to Governor Ed Rendell Pennsylvania House Bill 1845 who has committed to sign it. House Bill 1845 is an omnibus legislative package which contains a number of provisions. The impetus for the legislation was handgun violence in Philadelphia which seeped out to the Suburbs.
 

OH: Obama the wise presidential choice

In my opinion Barack Obama is the wise choice for president. I am an avid firearms person and love to hunt. I have belonged to the National Rifle Association and other organizations and have voted Republican in the past on this issue alone. I really believe this has become a fear issue with the electorate and is being fostered by the Republican Party along with the NRA. Just remember that whenever a firearm controversy raises its ugly head, the membership roles of the NRA expand, so it is in their interests to foster these issues.
 

FL: 'Disposable' AK-47s - trend that worries cops

Orange County's latest murders reflect an alarming trend for law enforcement: urban firefights with dozens of shots fired. The shooters in Tuesday night's double killing outside a Pine Hills apartment complex emptied two AK-47s into the victims and fled, discarding the assault rifles, two handguns and a shotgun. "They just disposed of them like disposable cigarette lighters, I guess, because they're so easy to get," sheriff's homicide Detective Dave Clark said Friday. "I mean, it's really unusual for people to leave stuff like this behind."

State Rep. Jeff Mayes, D-Bay City, has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association of America Political Victory Fund. Mayes received an "A" rating and the endorsement because of his strong support of the Second Amendment, sportsmen and gun-owners, he said in a news release. Mayes is running for re-election to the 96th District, which covers most of Bay County. He faces Republican Rick Rau on Nov. 4.
 

CA: Officials: Mexican Pot Growers Are Polluting American Wilderness

National forests and parks — long popular with Mexican marijuana-growing cartels — have become home to some of the most polluted pockets of wilderness in America because of the toxic chemicals needed to eke lucrative harvests from rocky mountainsides, federal officials said.

In 2007, rangers found more than 20,000 plants in Yosemite National Park and 43,000 plants in Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park, where 159 grow sites have been discovered over the past 10 years.

"Think about Sequoia," Wanek said. "The impact goes well beyond the acreage planted. They create huge networks of trail systems,...

NY: Bachelorette parties drop male strippers for guns, surf & spas

If stumbling around Times Square wearing a tacky feather boa while drinking fruity cocktails through a phallus-shaped straw sounds like your idea of hell, you're not alone. For years, bachelorette parties have been synonymous with drunken carousing, usually involving some combination of male strippers, plastic tiaras, karaoke and excessive alcohol consumption. But for many women, there is a growing trend toward slightly less debauched but equally fun ways to say goodbye to the single life.

I stood in a line, but I couldn't stand still. I rocked, rhythmically, from one foot to the other. The woman in front of me was rocking, too. I didn't know what her heart was doing. But mine had decided to enter a race, and my hands were weeping sweat. It was almost 11 a.m. And I was edging closer and closer to the room where I would pull a semi-automatic .22-caliber firearm to my shoulder and squeeze the trigger. Yesterday, for the first time ever, I joined a rifle team. Sort of. Two hours earlier, about 30 women of all ages, hues and dress, from across Long Island, assembled in a classroom at the Nassau County Indoor Pistol and Rifle Range in Uniondale.

Growing up in postwar Levittown, Bruce Serkin played baseball and football after school with his neighborhood pals. But when the Island Trees high school student signed up for a school sport, he picked riflery. "It's not the kind of sport like basketball where you have cheerleaders and rah, rah, rah," said Serkin, team captain during his senior year in 1962. "It was the competition of it. ... there is that kind of self-discipline that was really involved."

Go to church -- and bring your gun. That's what four Brooklyn pastors urge people to do as part of a city program to swap weapons for cash. The Reverend Richard Beuther, pastor of Saints Peter and Paul Church in Williamsburg, said he hopes the economic crisis will spur gun owners to go for the money. Anyone can anonymously hand in a gun or rifle, legal or illegal, and get a $200 bank card -- no questions asked. The cards may be used at stores or to withdraw money at ATM machines.
 

New Killer Drones Can Be Piloted By Teenagers

Today, only experienced Air Force pilots are allowed to remotely-operate the American fleet of killer drones. Tomorrow, the heavily-armed robotic planes could be flown by 19 year-olds, barely out of basic training.

The Army and Marine Corps use Shadow unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to spy on suspected militants. Not only are they smaller, cheaper, lighter, and lower-flying than the Air Force's array of missile-laden Predator and Reaper drones. But Shadows are considered a "tactical assets," meant to watch over relatively small patches of ground, for relatively small units. Predators, on the other hand, are "theater" or "operational-level" assets -- controlled by generals, and sent all over.

State Sen. Tom McClintock's congressional campaign made note of opponent Charlie Brown's stances on gay marriage and gun ownership this week, suggesting he's either inconsistent or absent on how he feels. Friday, the campaign forwarded a release from the Gun Owners of America asking why Brown hasn't filled out and returned a survey the group has sent asking for his position on gun ownership and related legislation.
 

How did Newsweek get Sarah Palin to pose with a rifle

How did Newsweek convince Gov. Sarah Palin to pose with a rifle for its cover?

Simple. It didn't.

Instead, it used an archive (fancy speak for old) stock photo of her taken back in June 2002 and used it for the cover without her knowledge.

However, to the magazine's credit, it did not try to hide the fact that it's a stock photo, even printing circa 2002 on the cover and again referencing the date in Jon Meacham's editor letters entitled "The Palin Problem."

Submitter's note: The comments are entertaining

Army Orders Pain Ray Trucks

After years of testing, the Active Denial System -- the pain ray which drives off rioters with a microwave-like beam -- could finally have its day. The Army is buying five of the truck-mounted systems for $25 million. But the energy weapon may face new hurdles, before it's shipped off to the battlefield; a new report details how the supposedly non-lethal blaster could be turned into a flesh-frying killer.

The contract for the pain ray trucks is "expected to be awarded by year's end," Aviation Week notes. "A year after the contract is signed, the combination vehicle/weapons will start be fielded at the rate of one per month."

I really am sick and tired of this year's presidential race. I, like so many people, am a one-issue voter. If you don't pass muster on gun rights you will not get my vote. If you want to take my guns, if you fear an armed citizenry, then you must be up to no good. It is a political litmus test that has served me well my whole life. Barack Obama has an F rating from the National Rifle Association, which has endorsed John McCain for president. According to an NRA spokesman, "Obama has voted to make self-defense with a firearm in the home illegal. He voted to ban most commonly owned hunting shotguns and ammunition and he voted for a 500 percent tax increase for guns and ammunition."

This election is critical for gun owners and hunters. There are major differences in the positions held by the candidates in the Presidential race.

For example, Senator McCain stood up against baseless lawsuits that attempted to blame the shooting sports industry for the criminal acts of third parties. Senator Obama, by contrast, voted to let antigun politicians like NYC Mayor Bloomberg file ridiculous lawsuits against the industry. Those lawsuits threatened to bankrupt this firearms industry – and deprive hunters and shooters of our Second Amendment rights.

So far in this presidential election, there has been a 2-to-1 turnout difference between voters supporting anti-gun candidates, versus voters supporting pro-gun candidates.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mills
