N.R.A. Goes After Orman in Kansas, by Way of New York

The National Rifle Association has been seeking candidates it can go after because they appear soft on gun rights, and the latest on its list is Greg Orman, the independent who is trying to unseat Pat Roberts, the Republican senator from Kansas.

While many Republicans are using their ads to tie Democrats to President Obama, the N.R.A.’s strategy has been to use former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York as a Democratic straw man. It began airing its first Bloomberg-Orman ads on Wednesday.

“There’s one place Orman did take a stand — gun control,” the raspy-voiced narrator says. “Orman supports the Obama/Bloomberg gun control agenda.”

"If people believe their pet group isn’t fairly represented, they’re free to do what all game developers do, and finance/create one they approve of, and then see if there’s any market for it. But the problem with that is, for humorless 'feminists,' it’s difficult to conceive of them coming up with a game anyone would want to play, something that’s, you know, fun. As opposed to drive-spikes-into-your-skull-to-make-it-stop boring..."
 

Apocalypse Now: Preppers Are Gearing Up for Ebola

Jason Charles knows the exact moment he will lead his wife and five kids out of their Harlem home, pile into a car, and take off for the wilderness. It will be not long after Ebola reaches the population of New York City, hospitals overflow, and looting begins—when the first riots break out on the streets of Manhattan.
“Right now it isn’t bad, but if the first case happens in New York, you start hearing about hundreds or thousands of people getting sick and it shotguns through the city, then you want to start getting your plan together to leave,” says the 37-year-old fireman and dedicated prepper. When that happens, he says, “it’s a free fall, that’s the system breaking down.”

Police arrest a man for impersonating a police officer - only to find out he was not faking after all.

More importantly, current Highland Park reserve officer Jervis Deron Daniel is a former convict.

Arrested for violating his parole on Aug. 16, Detroit police tracked Daniel to his home in Redford, they thought he was impersonating a police officer. But that's when Daniel took out his gun and his badge.

Coney said it is an ongoing investigation, adding that if Daniel said he had a gun "its not the truth."

"The badge might have been issued to him, but that's the only thing we issued," Coney said.

CT: Gun-advocate votes could sway election

Economy, jobs, taxes and spending are the dominant issues for the majority of Connecticut voters, but for a passionate minority there is no more important issue than Second Amendment rights and whether the gun law passed in the wake of the 2012 Newtown school shooting went too far in restricting them.

This is why the only clear anti-gun control candidate in the race for governor, petitioning candidate Joseph Visconti, could well influence the outcome.

Second Amendment rights are important but handguns at the N.C. State Fair are not. In fact, handguns at the State Fair could be a potentially dangerous idea.

Fortunately, the state courts also see it that way, deciding earlier this week that visitors to the fair, which opened in Raleigh on Thursday, would have to leave their pistols in the car.
 

Idiot Shoots Twice At Fleeing Purse Thief, Winds Up In Jail

Concealed carriers are, as a matter of unimpeachable statistical fact, far more law-abiding than the average citizen. They even commit fewer crimes than the law enforcement officers they greatly outnumber.

That doesn’t mean that they are perfect, however, and some people manage to get a concealed carry permit even though they clearly don’t understand when they are justified in using their lawfully-concealed weapon.

A judge's order to overturn the District's total ban on carrying guns place will stay in place for now.

U.S. District Senior Judge Frederick Sullin Jr. denied today the District's request for the court to reconsider his July ruling declaring the city's concealed carry ban unconstitutional, the Legal Times reported.

A District lawyer argued, in part, that the second amendment just guarantees the right to own a gun, not to carry that gun in public. Ultimately, according to the Legal Times, the judge called the District's arguments "somewhat disingenuous" and questioned whether the lawyers had thoroughly read through his decision.

Adding to a war chest he’s already stuffed to bursting at the seams along with fellow super-wealthy elites Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer and Paul Allen of Microsoft, and Nick Hanauer of ... uh ... Nick Hanauer, Michael Bloomberg is throwing another million dollars into the mix to promote the I-594 “gun control” initiative, Seattle Gun Rights Examiner Dave Workman reported this afternoon.

That, according to Alan Gottlieb, sponsor of the rival measure I-591 and head of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, is an indication the anti-gun elites “must be running scared [and that] voters are “actually reading ... I-594 [and] turning against it.”
 

IL: ISRA Urges Municipalities To Follow Peoria's Lead And Lift Locally Imposed Impediments To Self Defense

"A smart move to restore the rights of law-abiding citizens," is how ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson is characterizing the Peoria City Council's recent decision to repeal restrictions on armed self-defense. Pearson's remarks came at the culmination of a several month give and take effort between the ISRA's General Counsel and Peoria's City Attorney.

Until Tuesday's repeal of the Peoria Concealable Deadly Weapons Ordinance, those wishing to lawfully carry defensive firearms in Peoria would have to pay various fees and suffer all sorts of city red tape in addition to acquiring a state concealed carry permit.

"Stand your ground" statutes benefit whites more than blacks, are unnecessary and cause minority men to live in fear, several experts said Friday to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission as it evaluates racial disparities in the laws.

But one dissenter, an African-American lawmaker from South Carolina, said the law benefits black defendants by putting in place an extra hurdle in the way of arrest by police officers who may have hidden racial biases.
 

Mass shootings: Cooked numbers

Way off target for accuracy, an FBI report claiming a dramatic rise in mass shootings from 2000 to 2013 hits the political bull's-eye for the gun-grabbing Obama administration.

John R. Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center and author of “More Guns, Less Crime,” writes in the New York Post that this “remarkably shoddy” report, covering 160 cases and released last month, is “slicing the evidence to distort the results.” It counts as mass shootings 32 cases without fatalities and 35 involving single fatalities — which fit neither the FBI's old definition of such incidents (four or more murders) nor its new definition (at least three).

As unlikely as it may seem to those of us who pay attention to Second Amendment issues, there may still be some Florida Mayors Against illegal Guns (MAIG) Mayors who have been mislead by lies fed to them by Bloomberg’s anti-gun group.

Scarnati, who strongly supported the measure, explained that the amended version of House Bill 80 would prohibit local laws or ordinances attempting to regulate firearms or ammunition.

A judge on Friday denied the District of Columbia’s request to reconsider his ruling striking the city’s ban on carrying firearms in public.

U.S. District Senior Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. declared the ban unconstitutional in July. On Friday, he called the city’s arguments for reconsideration “somewhat disingenuous” and questioned whether the lawyers had “thoroughly” read his earlier decision. Scullin, a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York, is sitting by special designation in Washington.

Scullin’s ruling striking down the ban is set to take effect on Oct. 22.
