In the mid 1970’s I acquired a Colt .22 conversion unit that I placed on one of my Series 70 Colt Government Model pistols because it is cheaper to shoot 22’s than 45’s.

I soon found that I wanted a dedicated 22 and keep my Government Model the 45 that it was.

It is illegal for crews to carry weapons in the territorial waters of many nations, and ship captains are wary of arming crew members for fear of mutinies . . . some worry that arming crew members would only cause the violence to escalate. Instead, the best defense is vigilance, Nincic tells students.

"If you demonstrate a culture of awareness, that you look like you know you're in pirate waters and are clearly standing watch, patrolling, etc., the pirates know you're going to be more difficult to board and are possibly going to wait for the next ship and board the one that's easier," she said.
 

GA: Is it time to outlaw stupidity?

...Misdemeanor Stupidity would apply to a schoolteacher who screams and quivers and drools at the mere sight of a second-grader’s crayon scribble and rips it up because it looks almost like a gun. The specific crime here is minor property destruction. The fact that such a mentally unbalanced person should be allowed to work as a teacher ought to be a matter of judgment on the part of her superiors and the parents who pay her salary.

DISTRICT ATTORNEY Richard Brown has agreed to sponsor a gun buyback in Queens following a spike in violent crimes and the success of similar programs in other boroughs.
After months of prodding by City Councilman James Sanders Jr. and the Daily News, the buyback is set for Feb. 21,...in Far Rockaway.
"I don't think we'll get all the guns off the street, but lives will be saved," said Sanders. "Crimes and horror and heartbreak will be avoided." Brown's office is working with local clergy and the Police Department to secure a site where illegal weapons can be turned in anonymously for $200, Sanders said.
Gun buyback programs in Brooklyn and Manhattan and on Staten Island in 2008 netted thousands of weapons.

State Rep. John Bradley, D-Marion, announced he recently introduced a bill to establish statewide standards for permits to carry concealed firearms in Illinois.

“Forty-eight states have some form of concealed carry and it is time Illinoisans have the right to better defense themselves and their property,” Bradley said in a news release. “Illinois needs to catch up with the rest of the nation. Responsible gun owners deserve the right to protect themselves and their families.”

Bradley said his bill — House Bill 245, the Family and Personal Protection Act — would authorize Illinois State Police to issue concealed firearms permits to applicants who meet qualifications

The vacancies that are likely to open up in the early years of the Obama presidency will, if the conventional wisdom holds, arise from the retirements of one or more of the court’s liberals — Justice Stevens, Justice Ginsburg or Justice David H. Souter.
If that is so, Mr. Obama will not be able to put a new liberal vote on the court. But he can, if he wants to, add a big liberal voice.
"A really powerful, articulate, moral, passionate voice on the left,” said Geoffrey Stone, a law professor at the University of Chicago, “would really change the dynamic on the court. It would pull the other justices who are inclined to be sympathetic to that voice in that direction. It would shift the center of the discussion — about what’s the middle.”

As reported in "Newsday, Staten Island Chuck (aka Charles G. Hogg) drew blood from anti-gun New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg during a Groundhog Day ceremony today. Unfortunately there was no possibility of Mike getting rabies, for Chuck has lived a lonely, animal companion-free existence since he was born.

UT: Act now to preserve your Second Amendment rights

One of the latest anti-gun lobby schemes involves passing laws to force manufacturers of ammunition to micro-label every bullet with a serial number. This prohibitively expensive regulation would have the effect of making ammunition so costly that only the wealthiest sportsmen, hunters and competition shooters could afford to engage in...and protect their families and property.

The new attorney general is on record of late as saying that he and the new administration have no plans to do anything regarding gun control. For the sake of our rights and freedom, we must never allow this latest attempt to come to fruition.

Start calling, writing and e-mailing your elected officials now. Tomorrow may be too late.

Some years ago, a new family moved in beside us. The first thing I noticed about their ten year old boy was that he dressed in black. . . . Then one day I caught him pantomiming killing imaginary victims while wearing a Freddy Kreuger mask and slasher glove. His parents, it seemed, had allowed him to watch Nightmare on Elm Street over and over again until it became imprinted upon him.

A few years later . . . he chased my . . . daughter . . . around the yard with a hatchet, claiming he was "undead" and couldn't be killed. . . .

I . . . told them that if it happened again I was going to test that theory with a 230 grain slug traveling at 850 feet per second. Even zombies succumb to head shots, I told them.

 

NV: Town withdraws effort to ban guns

There was definitely a hot time in the old town Tuesday night, due in part to an item placed on the town board meeting agenda by Pahrump Town Manager Bill Kohbarger that would have barred firearms on town-owned property, in town-owned buildings and at town-sponsored events...

The board's first order of business after the pledge of allegiance was to permanently remove the firearms ban from the agenda, on advice from the town's attorney, Rick Campbell.

He said, "My research shows the town does not have the legal right to enact these types of ordinances." That ended the matter for the board but didn't stop the 200 or so people in attendance from wanting to voice their opinions.
 

The Hidden Weapon of "Gun Control" Advocates

Advocates of victim disarmament in today’s American politics owe their tactics and techniques to a man whose name is becoming more and more familiar: Saul Alinsky. Hillary Clinton actually sat at his feet. Barack Hussein Obama was spoon fed his teachings. Bill Clinton was Saul’s ideological son. And you can bet that freshman Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (Dem. NY) has been well versed in Alinskyism by her own mentor … Madam Hillary.

For decades gun owners have shaken their head in wonder as lie after lie from the gun grabbers results in more and more anti firearms ownership legislation.

The 27-year old son of a Philadelphia police officer was killed during a Super Bowl party, according to sources.

The victim's brother-in-law, who is a Plymouth Township police officer, was at the party. He was off-duty, according to sources.

While partygoers were playing darts in the basement, sources say it appears the brother-in-law's revolver was placed on a surface in the basement.

Someone picked the revolver up. It fired, hitting the 27-year old victim.

The victim, according to sources, is the son of a Philadelphia police officer.

The incident is under investigation. Check back for more details.

Gillibrand has been criticized as being the poster child for the National Rifle Association. Now I’m no fan of the NRA, but there is a huge difference between living in Hudson and wanting a gun to go hunting and living in the Bronx and wanting a gun to protect yourself. ... She now acknowledges that she isn’t representing just her rural upstate district and that she is coming to understand the importance of urban gun control; she insists it will become part of her legislative agenda. Furthermore, Charles Schumer, has plans to show Gillibrand around the urban areas so that she better grasps the need for gun control. But can she sever ties with the NRA, which adores her so much? It remains to be seen.

You do not let an enemy gain a beachhead without a battle. It only makes sense that he'll use it to fortify his position to stage the next attack.

We will come to regret that this ground was surrendered because some refused to lead and so many others refused to engage.
 

MN: Greenfield council is under the gun

Have gun, will gavel.

That seems to be the motto around the small city of Greenfield after revelations that at least one and possibly more of the city's top elected officials have carried loaded weapons to City Council meetings.

Those claims have been circulating for weeks in the west Hennepin County town since newly elected Council Member Howard Veldhuizen brought two handguns to a meeting last month.

The revelation sparked an unsuccessful attempt to ban firearms from the sessions.
Veldhuizen, who has a permit to carry a handgun, admits to bringing his weapons to the council chambers. And he said he will do so again...

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, whose cousin was killed last year by her estranged boyfriend, said he will urge lawmakers to pass the governor's initiatives on domestic violence.

Gov. Martin O'Malley is asking that judges be allowed to confiscate guns from the subjects of temporary protective orders, and be required to take them after final protective orders are issued.

Catherine T. Brown, 40, was fatally shot in August by Michael K. Wilson, who was then killed by Montgomery County police. The District of Columbia elementary school teacher had not sought a protective order against Wilson, but the lieutenant governor said the experience left him with a new urgency to protect victims of domestic violence.

Federal authorities have launched a civil rights investigation into several Los Angeles police officers accused of lying under oath in a drug possession case that was dismissed last year when a videotape sharply contradicted their testimony."We're investigating allegations that the defendant's civil rights may have been violated," said spokeswoman Laura Eimiller...
Alarcon's defense attorney during last year's trial, said the FBI interviewed him about the case in December. He said that his client had been framed and that the officers deserved to face criminal charges.
"They have no business being police officers,"..."Because they were willing to send an innocent man to prison, for what they did they should go to prison."

Obama Policy Threatens House Democrats, says Washington Senior Rights Activist. “President Obama is asking congressional Democrats to do what President Clinton recognized was an action that cost Democrats their majority 15 years ago after controlling the House of Representatives for several decades,” John M. Snyder said here today. “Over the weekend,” noted Snyder, “Amy Brundage of the White House said Obama supports reviving the ban on certain firearms passed in 1994 and even expanding it, reported the Atlanta Constitution. This is the ban Clinton implied led to the Democrats’ defeat in the 1994 mid-term elections. He indicated this in his 1995 State of the Union speech and later in his autobiography. The ban sunset five years ago.

Many liberals will try to elicit sympathy for criminals by arguing that they just can't help themselves and that they are as much of a victim of their circumstances as those who are the targets of their predatory actions.

In the real world, however, the actions of this subset of society rarely trigger sympathy from the public for the criminal. Stories like this one are more likely to lead to outright rage.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, on Friday, "John Bozich and his wife, Stephanie, were walking on Bonna Street near St. Clair Avenue at 8 p.m. with another man when they were approached by two men with guns."
 

Gun Myths on the Senate Floor

Legislation to require a federal license to possess any detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifle or shotgun, or any handgun, has been introduced in Congress. Bills to re-impose the federal "assault weapon" and "large" magazine ban, or to impose a much broader ban, have been introduced in Congress since 2003, and will likely be introduced in the current Congress soon.

Already, the deliberate deceptions we heard from anti-gunners previously are resurfacing. Anti-gun Sen. Carl Levin, D-MI, said last Thursday on the floor of the Senate that "assault weapons" are "capable of firing up to 600 rounds per minute" ...

The SHOT (Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade) Show means big business for all involved in outdoors pursuits. We chose to drive to the 2009 show at Orlando, Fla. Held annually in mid- January, the SHOT Show draws thousands of vendors, media personnel, buyers and others to the Orange County Convention Center. Size matters here. The show showed a three percent hike in statistics compared with the 2007 show held in Orlando, breaking records for exhibitors and attendance.

Well, for all those people who are firmly convinced that Tennessee is just a bunch of hillbilly rednecks humping their guns and clinging to their Bibles, I have news for you - we also have our fair share of liberal idiots. Time to see if I have enough endurance to do a line-by-line fisking...

Recent gun shows in and around Knoxville seem to be exploiting fear of gun control by the incoming president.

Ok, bucko, how do you come to this conclusion, exactly?

Violence and controversy reared their ugly heads at the annual Groundhog Day ceremonies Monday.

In a classic case of biting the hand that feeds him, Staten Island Groundhog Charles G. "Chuck" Hogg was coaxed out of his house, did not see his shadow and attacked Mayor Mike Bloomberg during the morning ceremony at the Staten Island Zoo in West Brighton. The cranky groundhog apparently bit the mayor on his gloved left hand and even drew some royal blood.

Submitter's note: Unfortunately, the poor groundhog died from acute B.S.-itis.

Local concealed-carry firearms safety courses are booming.

Missouri's concealed weapons law became effective Feb. 26, 2004. Among the requirements to apply for a concealed-carry endorsement is completion of an eight-hour firearms safety course.

Because of concerns President Obama may try to push for a federal ban on carrying concealed weapons, instructors are seeing a surge of people taking these firearm safety courses...
Williams said... "Most of the people we are getting now are people who shoot very little or have never shot."..there are a lot of people who take the course who have no intention of carrying or applying for a permit, however.

"They just want to know how to handle a gun," he said.
 

PA: Judges Arrested For Taking Bribes

Two senior Pennsylvania judges have been sentenced to seven years in prison for taking bribes from juvenile detention centers -- in exchange for the bribes, the judges turned in guilty verdicts for the teens who appeared before them and sent them to juvie, thus enriching the operators of the kiddy gulag. For this, the judges received $2.6 million in kickbacks.

First, the judges helped the detention centers land a county contract worth $58 million. Then their alleged scheme was to guarantee the operators a steady income by detaining juveniles, often on petty stuff.

Many of the kids were railroaded, according to allegations lodged with the state Supreme Court last year by the Philadelphia-based Juvenile Law Center, an advocacy group.

Submitter's note: I'm surprised none of the parents shot them!!
