” Drone quietly spies on Gun owners at Connecticut pro 2nd amendment rally Saturday April 5.

  Connecticut citizens and many Gun Right advocates from nearby states such as Massachusetts, Rhode Island, NY, NH and NJ stood shoulder to shoulder in support of the second amendment of the United States yesterday on the steps of the Connecticut state capitol building on April 5, 2014. Chants of freedom and disgust with certain CT law makers for using the SandyHook tragedy as a tool of tyranny to rush threw unconstitutional laws making certain firearms and magazines a federal offense in the state. “We The People” will not relinquish are 2nd amendment rights. As free citizens of this country, to defend ourselves and are families against any criminal elements with the firearms we do choose . When you try to use tragedy to empose tyrannical laws you end up with the year 1775. Let’s not let these so called “progressives” take us back in time before The Constitution state had a Constitution and a second amendment that protects all the other amendments. Stand with Connecticut gun owners Americia!!! “

    New York State Gun Owners Expect Few To Register Under New Law

     

     

    register Nothing

     

     

     

    ” Many New York gun owners expect the April 15 deadline to register assault weapons under the state’s strict new law to be largely ignored. 

    “ People are pretty much convinced once they get on this registration, the next time they’ll say they’ve got to turn them in,” said Stephen Aldstadt, president of the Shooters Committee on Political Education, who helped organize a protest at the Capitol this past week against the law.

      The state’s SAFE Act, spearheaded by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and passed in the wake of the 2012 school shooting in neighboring Connecticut, bans New York sales of semi-automatic weapons with detachable magazines and one military-style feature.

      For an estimated 1 million older guns already owned by New Yorkers, including popular AR-15s, the law requires registration. State police have established simple online registrations but refuse to say how many they’ve received. Cuomo, when asked, said he didn’t know.

      Critics say that’s because hardly anyone is signing up. Aldstadt said his group, which counts more than 300,000 members statewide, isn’t telling people to disobey the law. But some owners have said they won’t do it, while others are removing features, such as pistol grips, from their semi-automatics so they won’t meet the state’s definition of an assault weapon. 

    “ I refuse to comply,” said Jeff Tutuska, a graphic artist from West Seneca who was among a few thousand at the Capitol protest. He held a sign saying: “I’d rather have it & not need it than need it & not have it.”

      Reuben Tompkins, 59, of Greenville, said he didn’t know of anyone who planned to register a gun under the new law. “I hope nobody does,” he said. “

     

     

     

    We’ll let an American of considerably great stature than Andy Cuomo have the last word :

     

     

     “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.”

     

     

     

     

        So as you can see , we are only doing our civic duty as told by none other than the third president of the US , Thomas Jefferson.

    Read on and take heart … you are not alone.

    Warning Shot Bill Passes Senate Floor

     

     

     

     

     

     

    ” The Florida Senate has approved the so-called ‘warning shot’ bill, which now heads to Gov. Rick Scott to be signed into law.

    The bill passed 32-7 on Thursday.

      Sponsored by Sen. Greg Evers, a Republican from Pensacola, the bill has garnered attention due to the Marissa Alexander case in Jacksonville. Alexander is out on bail and awaiting a new trial after originally being sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a gun near her estranged husband during an altercation.”

    Muskogee Man Shaken After Killing Burglary Suspect

     

     

    Okie Burglar Dead

     

     

    ” Muskogee Police are still looking for two men who tried to rob people inside a house late Saturday night; a neighbor shot and killed the third suspect.

      Kyle Ford said the men were threatening him and he had no choice but to fire his gun.

      Muskogee Police say it looks like Ford clearly acted in self-defense and a criminal defense attorney we spoke with said Oklahoma law protects anyone who feels their life is in danger.

    ” If I would not have had my gun I don’t believe that I would be here today to tell you the story about it,” Ford said.

      Ford said he was scared for his life Saturday night.

      Muskogee Police said suspect who died has been identified as Joshua Salyer, 40, of Muskogee.”

    Dear Cuomo, I’m A Woman, And I Like Using Guns For Self Defense

     

     

    Liz Lemery Joy

     

     

     

     

    ” Dear Gov. Cuomo,

      Well, as you probably figured, I am against your so called Safe Act, which I don’t consider “Safe” at all-… in my opinion it’s actually dangerous. The (Anti-Safe Act- as I like to call it) seeks to, once again, give you all the control (which you love and covet) and limit the citizens of NY in their ability to safely defend themselves. Although, it doesn’t limit you and your peeps… nope. You and your possy retained the freedom to be exempt from the Safe Act…

      Your reasoning for exempting retired law enforcement was “They are retired law enforcement officers. They have different training, they have different experience. They are different.”

      MmmmHmmmm- yes Gov. (Thug) Cuomo- all retired law enforcement are different? All officers have different training? They are different? Ummm, cough, cough, sputter- sputter- Aren’t they citizens of NY State just like the rest of us? Wouldn’t this be considered elevating some citizens above others? This is actually called inequality. This is not social justice. This is called discrimination.

      The definition of inequality: The condition of being unequal. An instance of being unequal. Lack of equality, as of opportunity, treatment, or status. Social or economic disparity.

      The definition of discrimination: the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of peopleor things, esp. on the grounds of race, age, or sex.

      The definition of social injustice: unfair treatment : a situation in which the rights of a person or a group of people are ignored.

      Governor, you and your purposeful mislabeled, deceiving,”Safe Act”- actually favor certain groups of NY citizens over other NY citizens. Not to mention, it limits the ability of people to defend themselves legally against those who don’t obey the law- criminals.”

    New 3-D Printed Ammo To End Ammo Drought

    ” 4.1.2014, Palermo, Italy – Italian 3D-printing startup, Brachia Caeli Industries (BCI) announced today at a press conference that it had successfully printed fully functional centerfire ammunition. This comes on the heels of December’s congressional ruling that the Undetectable Firearms Act (UFA), which bans guns not visible to metal detectors or x-ray scanners, does not apply to 3-D printed arms.”

    Colorado Gun Laws Argued In Federal Court

     

     

    judge.marcia.krieger

    U.S. District Judge Marcia Krieger

    ” Colorado’s new gun restrictions went on trial Monday as Second Amendment advocates seek to overturn the laws on grounds that they violate constitutional rights to keep and bear arms.

      An attorney for the state defended the ammunition magazine limits and expanded background checks, saying the measures were a suitable response to high-profile shooting rampages.

      In his opening statement, Deputy Attorney General Matthew Grove noted Colorado’s tortured history with mass shootings, from the Columbine High School attack in 1999 to the Aurora movie theater massacre in 2012. He also mentioned the shooting spree at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in 2012.

      Responding to such events last year, “Colorado’s elected representatives made a policy decision to pass two pieces of legislation that appropriately balances the state public’s safety concerns with the respect of the Second Amendment rights of citizens,” Grove said.

      Attorney Richard Westfall, representing gun rights advocates, countered by saying the laws “were passed with almost no evidence or data” that they would make people safer, and he criticized lawmakers as trying “to legislate for the sake of legislating in the wake of the Aurora theater shooting.”

      The arguments in Denver federal court kicked off a two-week trial on an issue that’s been among Colorado’s most politically contentious in recent memory.”

    New Poll: Americans Feel Safer With Guns In The Home By 2-1 Margin

     

     

    guns1

     

     

     

    ” A new poll conducted this month shows that only 20 percent of Americans would feel less safe with a gun in the home.

      The poll was conducted following passage of a controversial Georgia firearms law that would allow increased concealed carry in places formerly off limits as well as expansive gun rights laws in more than twenty states in the past year.

      The data is part of a survey done last week by the market research firm Economist/YouGov. The nationwide survey of a thousand adults was conducted from March 22-24 and has a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points

      Pollsters asked respondents, “Do you think you would feel more safe or less safe with a gun in your house?” To which 42 percent answered, “yes,” while just 20 percent answered, “no.” This result was nearly the same across ethnic lines and gender lines, but saw a wider divide amongst political affiliation with 33 percent of Democrat respondents feeling they would be less safe while 59 percent of Republicans stated they would be more safe. “

    Concealed Carry: A Look At The Top Handguns

     

    GLOCK_19

     

     

    ” With thousands of Illinois residents applying for licenses to carry concealed firearms, you might be wondering what the guy in the next car is packing in his waistband.

      We visited Kenny Polhamus, owner and operator of Kapguns of Loves Park, to find out.

      Polhamus says he doesn’t recommend anything smaller than a .380-caliber handgun and prefers the compact 9 mm pistols for concealed carry.

      Smaller-caliber firearms, often called subcompacts, are lighter and more comfortable carrying concealed. But Polhamus says although the smaller guns are lethal, they are underpowered. And they have another major problem: Smaller guns are not that fun to shoot.

    “ Because they are so small, they are harder to handle,” Polhamus said. “If you are going to carry a gun, you want to be able to shoot it, take it to the range and stuff. You know, those smaller guns aren’t fun to shoot. It’s a good one for the summer when all you’ve got is a pocket. But in regular clothes, I would suggest moving into the 9 mm.”

      Polhamus recommends beginners take a basic pistol class before committing to a concealed carry course.

      Polhamus told us about his top concealed carry handguns. All are a 9 mm caliber — a measure of the ammunition size the weapon accommodates. Weight is when unloaded: “

    Concealed CarryPermit Process ‘Moving Right Along’

     

    udsc0.AuSt.98

     

     

    ” By the time the first concealed carry licenses hit Illinois mailboxes this month, state police had fielded tens of thousands of applications from residents.

      By March 6, some 48,951 applicants had completed the online forms requesting a permit. The application process opened on Jan. 5.

      Cook County led the state with 12,027 applicants. There also were more Cook County applications that received objections from law enforcement than any other county: 664. Still, the state’s most populous county also represented the lowest concentration of applicants per capita, with 2.3 applications per 1,000 residents.

      The home of Chicago is the only county in the state with an average of fewer than 2.5 applicants per 1,000 residents.

      The greatest concentrations reside in Hardin and White counties in far southern Illinois, topping the per-capita list at 12.5 applications per 1,000 residents each. Hardin and White represent only 54 and 184 applications, respectively.”

    Supreme Court Keeps Guns Away From Those Guilty Of Domestic Violence

     

     

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday strengthened a federal law that bars anyone convicted of domestic violence from possessing a gun.

      In a 9-0 decision, the high court said the ban extended to anyone who had pleaded guilty to at least a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence, even in cases in which there was no proof of violent acts or physical injury.

      The ruling overturns decisions in several regions, including the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California, which had said the ban applied only to convictions that involved a “violent use of force.”

      At issue was a 1996 law in which Congress expanded an existing ban that applied to anyone convicted of a felony in a domestic violence case to include misdemeanor convictions.”

     

     

         Thanks to a 9-0 decision from the Nine Old Swine now our gun rights are basically at the mercy of your domestic partner’s whim . Choose your mate well my friends for even a bogus complaint of feeling threatened by you from your significant other can rob you of your right to self-defense … FOR LIFE .

    In the case, U.S. vs. Castleman, the Supreme Court, in an opinion written by Obama liberal appointee Justice Sonia Sotomayor has decided that a misdemeanor conviction in a state court for “domestic violence” can be used under federal law to deny a person the Second Amendment right to own a firearm, even if the offense occurred years ago and the nature of the abuse involved in the “domestic violence” misdemeanor was minor in nature.

    In other words, the Supreme Court opened the door so federal gun control law enforcement is free to investigate a person’s domestic relations past to deny gun rights if the person did something within the “family” a spouse, lover, or child considered objectionable, even if the incident occurred 20 years ago and did not involve allegations of physical force or violence.

    Police: Victim Shoots Home Invader In North Beaver

     

     

     

     

    ” A man fought back against a home invasion by three men, one of whom was shot during the violent confrontation early Friday morning.

      State police believe the wounded intruder ran through some nearby woods to flee the crime scene in North Beaver Township, Lawrence County. He later turned up at a hospital and was flown to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh for surgery.

      The incident happened around 2 a.m. at a home on Hillsville Road in a very quiet part of town, close to the border of Bessemer Borough.

      Police believe the men broke into the house, and a resident inside was pistol-whipped. The victim was then able to grab a rifle and fire back at the suspects, hitting one of them in the chest.”

    Man Found Guilty After Carrying Replica Bullets

     

     

     

     

     

     

       You can read more about Mark Witaschek and his ordeal with the DC statists from our previous efforts to highlight Emily Miller’s great work on his behalf . Perhaps a brief synopsis of the case is in order for the new readers : Based on a phone tip from a disgruntled ex-wife Mr Witaschek , a successful businessman with no criminal record , and his family were subject to a full scale SWAT raid in the wee hours of the morning looking for “illegal firearms” . 

       After an exhaustive search there were no illegal firearms found  , but a fired shotgun shell , a souvenir from an past upland hunt , and some muzzle loading supplies were uncovered . For that Mr Witaschek’s life has been turned upside down by the State .

       This incident serves to vividly illustrate the two-tiered legal system that absolves a celebrity , one of the Elite , like David Gregory for knowingly possessing one of those “evil” 30 round magazines while persecuting the “unconnected” citizen on a much less serious offense .

     

        Kudos to Emily Miller and the Washington Times , who alone have made it their mission to see that this case gets the attention it deserves .

    Uptown Family Concerned By Lack Of 911 Response After Break-In, Several Calls To Authorities

     

    Terry Bice NO 911

    Click Pic For Video

     

    ” An Uptown family woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of someone breaking in and luckily their dog’s barking scared off the intruder. What they didn’t expect was no one answering their 911 calls for help.

    ” It’s a Taurus 32,” said Terri Bice holding a gun she never thought she’d own. Now the Riverbend resident does own a gun, and there’s a reason why.

    ” I think someone who would break the door down with that force had a serious intention,” said Bice pointing out the damage to her front door.

      On March 16, Bice’s family was fast asleep when they were woken up around 2 a.m., to someone trying to break in to their home.

      Bice believes it wasn’t the door, but barking from Molly that stopped the intruder in their tracks. So, she did what anyone would do. Grabbed her phone and dialed 9-1-1. She got no answer.

    ” We all know about first responders and what their importance is that’s not going to happen if no one answers,” said Bice.

      She documented her calls for help: two to 911; two to the NOPD’s non-emergency line; and one to NOPD’s Second District. The final call was answered and Bice confirms an officer showed up two hours after the attempted home invasion.”

    How The Civil Rights Movement Changed Black Gun Culture

     

     

     

    ” The subject of guns is a volatile one in the black community: a disproportionate number of black Americans are killed by firearms each year.

      But Nicholas Johnson, a law professor at Fordham University in New York City, says black Americans have a long, positive history with guns. Firearms, he says, helped black Americans escape slavery, defend their homes and fight for their freedom. It was only after the civil rights movement that the public attitude towards guns started to change.

      He explores the hidden relationship between African Americans and firearms in his book Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms.”

     

     

       Thanks to the BBC for bringing this to light . Along with the civil rights movement came the social programs aimed at aiding the black community , which in reality have done nothing but generate a culture of dependency on the government , a loss of self-esteem and a permanent democratic voting bloc .

    Colorado Public School Takes Students On A Field Trip To The Shooting Range

     

    Craver Middle School Gun Trip

     

     

    ” School officials in Pueblo County, Colorado are bucking the anti-gun trend and recently approved a field trip for middle school students to a local shooting range where they learned about gun safety and how to properly handle a firearm. The gun safety and marksman group Project Appleseed, an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, was brought in to instruct students, all of whom fired at the range with live ammunition. The trip was scheduled shortly after students learned about The Revolutionary War in their classrooms.

    ” We’ve never been allowed to bring actual real firearms into a school. Until this week. This is a very big deal. We had them touching fire arms, holding them and learning about how to handle them safely,” Appleseed Instructor Elizabeth Blackwood told KRDO.”

      Julia Tourianski believes that while one can argue about gun rights until they turn blue in the face there is only one true and undeniable point to be made: The right to bear arms is inherent in all human beings, BraveNewWorld reports.

    “You are alive. You have an inherent right to stay alive. A gun is a tool. You have the right to wield it to preserve your life when under threat,” Tourianski says.”
