"That 'the lead agent on the ... case is African American,' as is Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams, who denounced Kane’s reasons as 'ridiculous,' and that the lobbyist 'approached a wide range of officials, from both parties, black and white,' have been ignored in what is clearly a political decision subverting accountability to the public and the law on the part of AG Kane, ostensibly the highest law enforcement official in the state. Using her 'rationale,' no investigations or prosecutions may be conducted if it turns out the only ones engaging in incriminating behavior turn out to be black." ,,,

"'The Alaska Legislature has considered some preposterous notions in its 101 years,' Terrence Cole [above] writes at adn.com, 'but Sen. John Coghill’s proposal to allow guns on UA campuses, which reportedly came from a student intern in his office, is probably the most ill-informed idea to ever come out of Juneau.' I fail to see what’s preposterous about the idea that an American’s natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms shouldn’t end at the gates of a public university – any more than their right to free speech shouldn’t cease when they set foot on campus. Mr. Cole intends to school me in that regard. But first, what’s up with dissing interns? I mean . . ." ...

Why We Use Expanding Bullets For Self-Defense Part II: The Over-Penetration Factor

"Let’s return to the things which justify our choice of hollow-point bullets. A major factor – the one that convinced police chiefs in even the most 'politically-correct' cities to insist on this ammo when some were calling for a ban on 'dum-dum bullets' – was reduced penetration. Cops called them 'controlled expansion rounds' because as the nose of the hollow-point bullet widened as it passed through flesh, it met more resistance and came to a stop sooner. Therefore, it was more likely to stay inside the only backstop the Good Guy or Gal pulling the trigger had: the body of the violent criminal attacker. Self-defense shootings, after all, aren’t likely to take place on gun ranges with the Bad Guy standing in front of a backstop." ...

Gun lobby’s latest insult to America: A shooting victim’s perspective

... "This week’s victim is Dr. Vivek Murthy, a Harvard- and Yale-educated physician whom President Obama nominated to serve as Surgeon General back in November. In non-clinical capacities, his crimes are being an Obama ally and an advocate for more restrictive gun regulations, which means his nomination must be destroyed."

"Now, the surgeon general of the United States isn’t a gun regulator. ... But Murthy has described gun violence as a public health issue. And for that reason the NRA has taken unusual interest in his nomination, ... working NRA members into a panic over the possibility that the nation’s top doctor will cite public health concerns to take away their guns." ...

Submitter's Note: Actually it is Dr. Murthy's refusal to look at the facts regarding guns and public health which led to members pressuring the NRA to oppose his nomination.

... "This tweet still haunts Murthy. As of last week, his nomination hangs in jeopardy because Senate Democrats—who can afford to lose every Republican vote and four of their own—aren’t confident they can confirm him. Months after reforming the filibuster, after lowering the vote threshold from 60 to 51, Democrats are facing their second defeat of a nominee in less than a month. The most-stated reason is that in his tweets and in his work at DFA, Murthy couldn’t help himself from criticizing guns as a 'health care issue.' In a post–Sandy Hook letter, DFA even supported an assault weapons ban. He earned the ire of the National Rifle Association, and the NRA scared off the necessary rump of Democrats." ...

Senate aides are whispering that as many as 10 Democrats would likely vote against Murthy because he supports stricter gun control, according to the New York Times. In response, 'the White House is considering delaying a vote … or withdrawing the nomination altogether.' When 'the White House' publicly emits that kind of gloom, it’s a signal that the president wants his nominee to withdraw and stanch the political bleeding.

Of course I am biased. I can read the Constitution and I understand the meaning of 'shall not be infringed.' And then there’s the fourth Amendment . . ." ...
