Obama Reveals Anti-Gun U.N. Intent; Sends Ex-Seattle Mayor as Rep

"The appointment of anti-gun rights former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels ... has removed any doubt about the Obama administration's intentions regarding global gun control initiatives, the [CCRKBA] said today." ...

"'Nickels is a gun ban proponent,' [Gottlieb] continued, 'so his appointment as an alternate to the UN is a clear signal of Barack Obama's intention to rubber stamp the UN's global gun ban agenda. We had to sue Nickels while he was still Seattle's mayor to overturn his illegal city parks gun ban. Now he gets to push his anti-gun philosophy on a world scale. It hardly seems a coincidence that Nickels has been appointed ... at a time when the UN is considering treaties and initiatives that pose a serious threat to the Second Amendment.'" ...

"They say it 'removed any doubt about the Obama administration's intentions regarding global gun control initiatives.' The group points out that Nickels is a founding member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

"'Putting an extremist gun banner in any position to represent this country at the United Nations amounts to renting a billboard for advertising against the Second Amendment,' says Alan Gottlieb, the group's chairman." ...

"Financially speaking, government is in a hole and it is time for voters to force public officials to stop digging."

"It is the same everywhere, and what is happening right now in Washington State is perhaps a microcosm of the national dilemma. Simply put, we’re out of money. Taxpayers are fed up, and government isn’t getting any deeper into our wallets."

"What's this got to do with gun rights? Residents in Washington's King County – the same as citizens in so many other communities around the country that are reeling from the train wreck of government largesse – are about to figure that one out." ...

"As a gun blogger, I can tell you that firearms-related news stories are never quite as clearcut as their authors wold have you believe. A 'clean' self-defense shooting is usually the result of 'prior contact.' New gun laws always have unintended consequences. It's not that we live in a world of spin. It's more that the world is constantly spinning. To find the truth, you have to look for the lies. For example . . ."

"ItalDesign penned the Brett Solomon-reviewed Beretta U22 NEOS. That's the design house founded by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the man who crafted the DeLorean, Ferrari 250 GT and various Maserati. All of which were achingly beautiful. None of which were known for mechanical reliability. Quite the opposite, in fact. And now Beretta has 'discovered' that the Guigaro-designed .22 caliber NEOS semiautomatic pistol has an 'issue.' ... Seems a NEOS owner can fire the gun with the safety on. In fact, switching the safety from OFF to ON can discharge the weapon. At the risk of being a guastafesta, someone at Beretta should be rosso come un peperone.
