"Shameless plug for my esteemed colleague David Codrea, the National Gun Rights Examiner; in his column yesterday, he asked why so many anti-gun mayors are criminals."

"He overlooked another 'common denominator' among several former members of Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) who have taken a fall in court: They all share the same political party affiliation. Codrea lists several mayors who were MAIG members who have been convicted of various crimes, so this column did a little checking. Every one of them is a Democrat."

"Do you want a rifle that goes BANG every time you pull the trigger or a highly evolved weapon with excellent ergonomics, superior accuracy and endless customization? Yes! Unfortunately, American rifles tend to divide between AK (rough and ready) and AR (hot rod). The underlying assumption: they’re mutually exclusive platforms. Maybe not. Robinson Arms’ XCR-L rifle combines the reliability of the AK-47’s gas-operated, piston-driven system, three-lug rotating bolt, beefy extractor and fixed ejector with the superior ergonomics and accuracy of the AR platform—with a dash of FN-FAL for added finesse. Or does it?" ...

My fellow college student was so far to the left she made Barack Obama seem like Glenn Beck in a dress. Wait, that didn't come out right. Anyway, as Mort from The Penguins of Madagascar might say, I could shut up a little. But she couldn't. It was less like constant needling and more like semi-regular javelin thrusts.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

congressional candidates in danger of losing are going after their own leaders in Washington rather than their Republican opponents. And for at least one candidate, the strategy appears to be working, The Hill reports. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin recently issued an ad criticizing Washington for viewing her sate as merely "flyover country."

The South Dakota Democrat says in the ad: "They look down from 30,000 feet and don't care about our agriculture, the Second Amendment, or our fiscally conservative values."

The most recent Rasmussen poll shows Herseth Sandlin with 47-45 percent edge over Republican Kristi Noem. That compares with a 51-42 percent Noem lead in Rasmussen's August poll.

"I had hoped at the time that the public attention directed toward the problem by the arrest of Professor Gates would have encouraged legislative reform ... Unfortunately, as is often the case where civil rights are concerned, the spotlight quickly dimmed and nothing has changed."

"What makes Kelly's site libellous, said McGinnis, are the false allegations made against two city homicide investigators." ...

... "With all MPs showing up to vote, the result early Wednesday evening was 153-151 in favour of keeping the registry." ...

"Hoeppner, who had all but conceded defeat on her bill, believed before the vote that she was one vote short after most of the eight Liberals and 12 New Democrats, who sided with her in an early vote last November, withdrew their support." [emphasis added]

Submitter's note: Many of these traitors WILL be thrown out of office. This isn't over. Voting for the status quo is NOT a good idea in the current climate. The rural Canadians vastly outnumber the urban types who don't respect individual liberty.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms. — Tench Coxe in `Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution' under the Pseudonym "A Pennsylvanian" in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789 at 2 col. 1.
