Forget the NRA. It’s the FBI that apparently has some serious gun nuts

"Thanks to an on-line forum called StrategyPage.com, it is now clear that the [NRA] 'ain't got nuthin' on the [FBI] when it comes to a zeal for things that go 'B-A-N-G!' because the feds are allegedly buying a couple of guns that really go 'K-A-B-O-O-M!'"

"For years, the NRA has been trashed by a string of halfwits and alarmists over the organization's promotion of shooting sports ... Pseudo-psychologists have lined up to accuse the NRA of being a haven of ... males with big egos, small plumbing and a need to compensate for their, uh, shortcomings ..."

"Well, now, according to StrategyPage, the NRA can probably head for the locker room, because the FBI is apparently in the process of buying a couple of genuine Hell-roaring long-range sniper rifles that will put to shame anything the average NRA member ever wanted." ...

"I should be beyond surprise at the depth of anti-gun hysteria in MIchael Bloomberg's New York City, but when the City Council decides that 'merely' banning toy guns is not enough, and that the city needs to consider making them more illegal, the inmates are truly running the asylum." ...
 

Exposed: Virginia Tech officials took care of themselves after ensuring the kids in their care could not

"New evidence about the 2007 Virginia Tech killings shed new light on the arrogance and hypritical stance of University leaders. The murder of 32 students was the worst mass shooting in U.S. history until the Ft. Hood massacre last month and remains the worst school shooting ever on U.S. soil."

"Virginia Tech is no stranger to violence. They had two shootings in the 2006-2007 school year. A student worried about the possibility of another shooting asked school officials to reconsider their 'no guns' policy. School officials not only rebuffed and mocked that request, they also cheered the defeat of a bill that would have allowed their students to defend their own lives with a gun on campus." ...

"It seems every day we read about the criminals victimizing people from all the local armed robberies and senseless homicide of a local working man to the senseless shootings of four of our country’s brave officers cut down by a hardened criminal pardoned and paroled to the streets."

"Why was a convicted felon sentenced to more than 90 years in prison let out after only serving 11 years? I am so tired of all the anti-gun people trying to dice up the Second Amendment for us law-abiding citizens to protect ourselves against these criminals. The anti-gun movement needs to concentrate more on the laws that are in effect for convicted criminals." ...

"State Sen. and 4th District congressional candidate Jean Schodorf, R-Wichita, has joined a friend-of-the-court brief urging the Supreme Court to declare the right to own weapons as an individual right nationwide."

"'The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights clearly authorizes and supports the rights of the individual in keeping and bearing arms,' Schodorf, R-Wichita, said in a written statement. 'This legal brief encourages the United States Supreme Court to take the opportunity … to reinforce individual freedoms, like the right to bear arms, guaranteed to all Americans.'" ...

"Last year, the Supreme Court's District of Columbia v. Heller decision struck down Washington, D.C.'s 32-year-old handgun ban ..." ...

"Immediately after the Heller decision was handed down, ... Alan Gura, lead counsel in Heller, and Illinois attorney David Sigale filed suit on behalf of four Chicago residents who had run afoul of Chicago's strict gun laws. ... After two losses in the lower federal courts, the case recently arrived at the U.S. Supreme Court ..."

"In the press, McDonald will largely be discussed in terms of its impact on gun regulations. However, the briefs in the case suggest to me that a much more sweeping set of constitutional issues will be in play." ...

"Two people tried to rob a Spring dry cleaning business, but the shop’s manager didn’t let them succeed, KPRC Local 2 reported."

"Harris County sheriff’s deputies said Nam-Duong Nguyen, the manager of the $1 Cleaners in the 18600 block of Kuykendahl Road, saw two people approach the store at about 6:35 p.m. Monday."

"Nguyen said the two were wearing all black and he saw them pull masks over their faces."

"The two crouched down and approached the front door, Nguyen told investigators."

"Nguyen said he saw the two reach into the waistbands for an object. Nguyen, who has a concealed handgun license, pulled out his gun and fired toward the men about three times, investigators said." ...

"A few editions ago, I responded to Jenny Price's article about how violence is making its way into the better neighborhoods. It is. This week, prominent civil attorney Jeffrey Tidus was shot to death in front of his home in one of L.A's affluent mountain neighborhoods, Palos Verdes Peninsula."

"The question on the lips of many is how this could happen there. The question hasn't reached everyone yet, and some are still shocked at the reality that violence is breaking out of the tough neighborhoods."

"Because there is a lot of violence which is crime-on-crime, you don't usually see such violence in your quieter neighborhoods. Not all of it is crime-on-crime, but a lot of it is ..." ...

"Here we go again."

"First, there was Sonia Sotomayor. Then there was David Hamilton."

"Now, we have another radical, anti-gun judge that has been nominated for the federal judiciary. His name is Louis Butler, and he is so radical, he was twice rejected by the people of Wisconsin ..."

"When Louis Butler first ran for the Wisconsin Supreme Court — the voters rejected him by a 2-1 margin. When he was appointed to that court by Democrat Governor Jim Doyle and then stood for retention by the voters, they again rejected him. This was the first time a member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court was rejected by the voters in more than 40 years."

"More importantly, Louis Butler opposes the rights of gun owners. ..." ...
 

Handgun Owners Win Right to Pack 'em on Amtrak

"Amtrak riders will be able to pack handguns in their checked luggage within a year, under a provision tucked into the final version of the fiscal 2010 omnibus spending bill."

"The Senate-passed Transportation-HUD spending bill included language sponsored by Sen. Roger Wicker , R-Miss., that would have required Amtrak to allow passengers to carry handguns in checked bags by March." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: I fell quite certain that there was no attempting to slant this article by A) insinuating in the headline that people could carry their weapons as opposed to "packing" them in their luggage, and 2) by neglecting to mention that the bill addresses all firearms, not just handguns.

"Gun-toting Amtrak passengers are one giant step closer to being allowed to travel with firearms in their checked luggage, as lawmakers included a measure to lift a railroad gun ban in a catch-all spending bill ..."

"The omnibus spending bill ... is considered must-pass legislation, and that makes the new Amtrak gun rule as close to a sure bet as there is on Capitol Hill."

"Travelers with firearms have long faced disparate treatment on trains and airplanes. Airline passengers can transport firearms in checked baggage, but Amtrak currently prohibits guns anywhere on its trains."

"This is an important victory for sportsmen and gun owners across the country, and it affirms congressional support of the Second Amendment ..." ...

"Back door gun registration is being proposed for Wisconsin ..."

"SB 367 is yet another attempt to infringe upon lawful gun owners in Wisconsin by making it a crime not to report a lost or stolen gun within 48 hours of discovering the loss or theft. I am not clear how anyone will know if a stolen gun that shows up at a crime scene just 5 hours after it was stolen is your gun or to whom it belongs. The fine for a first time offense is only $1,000 and or 90 days in jail. ...Who is to say when you 'discovered' it was missing which started the 48 hours clock? How do you prove you did not know what you did not know?" ...

"The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence has reported, much to its chagrin, that Rep. John Boccieri held a fundraiser on Dec. 2 in conjunction with the National Rifle Association that consisted of a 'virtual shootout.'"

I would like to commend Mr. Boccieri for choosing to participate in such an event. The Brady Campaign and other such groups populated by anti-gun bigots were quick to villainize Boccieri."

"I did not vote for John Boccieri, but he has admirably demonstrated an ability to make decisions for himself, be they right or wrong, rather than simply moving in partisan lockstep." ...

"State Sen. Dale Risinger is waiting to see what the outcome will be on an U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the city of Chicago's handgun ban before proposing a concealed-carry measure for the city of Peoria."

"Risinger, R-Peoria, said Monday he would sponsor legislation in the Illinois Senate to have Peoria serve as a pilot city for a statewide concealed-carry law."

"The concept was pushed last year by Mayor Jim Ardis and is included as one of the city's legislative initiatives going into the General Assembly's spring session. A vote on the city's legislative initiative list was postponed Tuesday with council members opting to discuss the entire list a later date." ...

"In a massive security breach, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inadvertently posted online its airport screening procedures manual, including some of the most closely guarded secrets regarding special rules for diplomats and CIA and law enforcement officers."

"The most sensitive parts of the 93-page Standard Operating Procedures manual were apparently redacted in a way that computer savvy individuals easily overcame."

"The document shows sample CIA, Congressional and law enforcement credentials which experts say would make it easy for terrorists to duplicate." ...

"A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office corrections deputy was arrested Monday for assaulting a man at gunpoint who was having sex with her daughter in the deputy's Belle Glade home."

"Dorethea Collier, 48, was charged with false imprisonment, aggravated assault and battery for the Nov. 2 incident. ..."

"When Collier arrived home, Larry Butler, 19, of Pahokee, hid in the closet while Collier's daughter, Uzuri Collier, 20, held her bedroom door shut."

"But Dorethea Collier barged in and found her daughter partially clothed and a naked Butler in the closet."

"The uniformed deputy punched Butler three or four times and then pointed her gun at him, handcuffed him and ordered him to his knees." ...

"Plaxico Burress is still looking for his get-out-of-jail-free card."

"The former Giants wide receiver, who's two months into a two-year sentence for illegal gun possession after he shot himself in a Midtown club last November, has applied for a work furlough that could spring him early next year, The Post reported Monday."

"The furlough could let him spend up to seven nights a week at home as he shops his talents to NFL teams."

"That'd be great for Burress -- and awful for New Yorkers' faith in the criminal-justice system."

"Not to mention, for police efforts to keep illegal guns off the streets." ...

"There was no threat to Blair's safety, it is understood."

"The suspect, 56, was stopped in his car as he drove in Connaught Street ... at 11.15 p.m. local time."

"Officers on patrol became suspicious and arrested him ..."

"About 25 minutes later, a passer-by approached a uniformed officer on guard outside Blair's £3.5m Connaught Square townhouse."

"He handed the officer a black pistol, loaded with several bullets and fitted with a silencer, saying he found it in the gutter." ...

Submitter's Note: This is unpossible in England, right?
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Those, who have the command of the arms in a country are masters of the state, and have it in their power to make what revolutions they please. [Thus,] there is no end to observations on the difference between the measures likely to be pursued by a minister backed by a standing army, and those of a court awed by the fear of an armed people. — Aristotle, as quoted by John Trenchard and Water Moyle, An Argument Shewing, That a Standing Army Is Inconsistent with a Free Government, and Absolutely Destructive to the Constitution of the English Monarchy [London, 1697].
