"Military-Style Weapons" Shot By Civilians (Ark.)

THOR Global Defense....hosted the first ever open shooting event called "Critical Mass" at their headquarters in Van Buren. Thousands signed up to have their chance to shoot the weapons.
Jim Kane shot an M-4, marking the first time he has ever shot an automatic weapon.
"I was just a little nervous, but not too bad," Kane said."It's neat. It seems like it was over too fast, I wish I could have sat there longer"...
Lacking detail and implying machine-guns were being used, this TV news report comes off more like a Chamber of Commerce promo for local business...(S9)

Crackdown on Licensed Gun Owners, Murderous Militants unaffected (Lebanon)

Terrorists w/AK-47's listen to Obama
Minister of Defence Elias Murr issued an order this week "freezing all arms licences granted on all Lebanese territory until further notice", according to a statement from the Lebanese Army. "The proliferation of arms in each and every street and neighbourhood is no longer acceptable"..."From now on, the military and security forces, the army and internal security forces, will assume the responsibility of controlling security, and will track down anyone who may provoke problems in this country, especially like the one that happened yesterday," Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri said...Clashes erupted in a Beirut neighbourhood...between followers of the Hezbollah resistance movement and the pro-Syrian Sunni Al Ahbash group, killing at least three people. Rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machineguns were used in the skirmish...-------
Full Report at Gulf News------
Same old story: The registered gun owners, none of whom are licensed to own Heavy Machineguns or Rocket-Propelled Grenade launchers, but are on a government list, take it in the shorts for the out of control behavior of reckless armed militants that are the actual menaces to society, (which government forces are reluctant to take on in actual battle, only in the bombastic media rhetoric of government leaders). Registration = confiscation = disarmed victim-hood for everyone except the armed factions, who laugh in the face of useless "gun laws". Armed Bad Guys can only be stopped by armed Good Guys, an immutable law of nature the "rose colored glasses" Utopians refuse to accept...(S9)

FAL's & AK's:How Guns enter the Black Market: Another Example (Zimbabwe/Ex-Rhodesia)

Detectives from the ZRP Criminal Investigation Department (CID) investigating the theft of firearms from Nkulumane Police Station last week are following leads that the guns were destined for neighbouring Mozambique, where thieves are said to have a ready market for FN rifles.
“We have information that security companies handling transit cash in Mozambique prefer using FN rifles, but they cannot get them in that country”...Three police officers were arrested and are being questioned in connection with aiding the criminals...The thieves got away with two FN rifles, two AK 47 rifles and some pistols...the FN Rifle was the most popular and widely adopted battle rifle among non-eastern bloc countries during the cold war era. It is renowned for being accurate, reliable and powerful. The FN was also the standard military rifle of the Rhodesian army and is still in use in some units of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces...
Full story at The Zimbabwean
The excellent FN-FAL, the Belgian equivalent to the US M-14, continues to be a highly prized firearm both with collectors and with action men who know they can bet their lives on this well-machined hard-hitting semi-automatic battle rifle (I'd love to have one in my collection, but it's not likely to happen). I have seen men armed with the FAL take down fully grown African elephants(!).  Here again, we see that those who need firearms will find a way to obtain them, even at risk of their lives & freedom, when in many cases misguided anti-gun "laws" force many into unnecessary & unjustified criminality...(S9)

Kalashnikov (AK-47) Rifles intercepted in Nigeria

Officials with Nigeria's security services say they've intercepted 52 Kalashnikov rifles and tens of thousands of ammunition rounds heading for an area that has been the scene of religious violence... Nigeria's "middle belt," where dozens of ethnic groups vie for control of fertile lands. Hundreds of Christians and Muslims have died in fighting there this year alone...
Dispatch can be found here
Standard disclaimer: These guns are unmodified AK's, NOT the semi-automatic civilianized versions Politicians, Biased media, and Anti-gun nuts are so fond of lying about. It is unclear which side was smuggling in the weapons, but what is certain is that where there is conflict, someone will seek an advantage, despite U.N. Meddling and heavy-handed government tactics. What is important to note here is that although "hundreds" have been killed, there have been slim to nothing reported on this story, that is, until an anti-gun headline can be exploited with the usual scare tactic buzzwords like "AK-47" and "Kalashnikov" certain to generate attention. The type of firearm overshadows what should be more important, the loss of lives (which shows how little those in the west really care about a few hundred dead Africans).  As was once philosophized, "Where life is cheap, death is plentiful"...(S9)

Obama bans over 100,000 rifles (Dave Kopel Reports)

"The Obama administration has blocked efforts by the South Korean government to sell over a  hundred thousand surplus M1 Garandand Carbine rifles into the United States market. These self-loading were rifles introduced in 1926 and 1941...According to a South Korean official, “The U.S. insisted that imports of the aging rifles could cause problems such as firearm accidents. It was also worried the weapons could be smuggled to terrorists, gangs or other people with bad intentions.”...Legally, it is indisputable that the guns are importable. Being over 50 years old, the rifles are automatically “Curios and Relics” according to federal law. 27 CFR section 478.11. Accordingly, they are by statutory definition importable. 18 USC section 925 (e)(1). Notwithstanding the law, the Obama administration has the ability to pressure the South Korean government to block the sale of the guns"...
Full report at Volokh
One more nail in the coffin of the anti-gun media's web of lies that the current resident of the White House is not actively anti-gun. These surplus semi-automatic G.I. firearms are invaluable and have a negligible history of criminal misuse. The reasons given for blocking importation are not only weak and illogical, they are downright stupid. More abuse of power by the current administration...(S9)  Note: there are some factual errors about the history of these firearms in this report, so it would not hurt the uninitiated to check out here and also here...

Canadian Tyranny: Anti-Gun Police Bigwig sacked as long gun registry fight continues

"Replacement of Canadian Firearms Program director slammed as intimidating, suspicious": The head of the Canadian Firearms Program, who was a vocal proponent of the long-gun registry, has been replaced and is currently on leave from the organization. The move to replace RCMP Chief Supt. Marty Cheliak comes a few weeks before Parliament is scheduled to continue to debate a Conservative private member's bill to scrap the registry..."The government's position on the long-gun registry is well-known. With the support of a majority of the House of Commons, including some members of the opposition, this government strongly favours the abolition of the long-gun registry for farmers and duck-hunters. It is wasteful; it has been ineffective. That will continue to be our position"...Greg Dionne, president of the Canadian Association of Police Boards, the civilian oversight group that represents 75 per cent of municipal police forces in Canada, questioned why Cheliak was replaced before a vote on the bill. "It's very suspicious," said Dionne...
Report from DOSE.Ca
While Canadians fight to scrap this misbegotten "long gun registry", California anti-gun nuts are fighting to impose a near identical long gun registry on lawful gun owners there. This scheme, no matter where, has no effect on criminal misuse of firearms and only serves to turn law-abiding gun-owners into criminals by the stroke of a pen. More illegitimate legislative tyranny by Fat-Cat politicians breaking their oaths of office...(S9)

Chi-Com Gun Control crackdown targets ethnic minorities

Chongqing authorities launched a televised crackdown on illegal firearms that involved 1,000 police officers and paramilitaries armed with bazookas. Security bureau officials said the campaign resulted in four underground arsenals and 10 weapon stores being destroyed, and the detention of dozens of suspects...In this remote mountainous region of Southwest China - where owning a powder shotgun was a tradition among the Miao ethnic people until 1996, when the central government introduced legislation banning the buying, selling and transporting of firearms without official permission - the market for guns is yet to disappear.  No official statistics are available on the number of privately owned firearms.
In 2007, a study by the Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International Studies estimated the total number of guns held by civilians in China at 40 million, third only to the United States and India. Chinese analysts, however, say the figure is a wild exaggeration...Assembling a handmade Type 64 takes an experienced gunsmith only two to three days and costs around 300 yuan, yet several transactions by middlemen can push the sales price up to more than 10,000 yuan..."these gun traders make more money than we do in a month," joked a gun taskforce member who did not want to be identified.
For farmers, whose annual earnings are typically in the high hundreds, gun money can be a big boost... 
Government censored report from China Daily
Living under communist domination is bad enough, but when your traditional right to have arms, (and generate much needed income) is taken away by the government under threat of prison time, and is based on ethnic discrimination, life is even more oppressive and bitter. There is still a market for firearms despite heavy-handed police tactics (4 "arsenals" and 10 "weapons stores" needed 1,000 armed police? With "Bazookas"?. Mighty slim pickings for all that armed force...shades of BATFE). Unintended consequences include damage to the food chain by out of control animal and varmint populations damaging subsistence and commercial crops. Yet another failure of the communist/socialist mindset and the propaganda organs that support it - (S9)

Illinois Tyranny: New Semi-Auto Ban Challenged

The National Rifle Association is backing a protest filed with the Electoral Board in Cook County, Illinois, in response to a petition to ban the sale of semi-automatic firearms across the state. The petition asks, “Shall the Governor and the members of the Illinois General Assembly enact legislation to ban the sale of semi-automatic and assault weapons that are used by criminals to threaten the lives of law enforcement and the people of Illinois?”...Chris W. Cox (said) “Semi-automatic firearms have been around for 125 years and are used everywhere in America for self-defense, competitive shooting at all levels and hunting. Banning the sale of these commonly owned firearms will do nothing to curb crime, because criminals pay no attention to the law.”...
Full report @ ILA
The Anti-Gun Nuts keep up the attack, despite propaganda to lull you into complacency about the current administration "not going after" guns, as the media running-dogs claim (which is a bald faced lie, check the archives of this site if you have any doubts, particularly when concerning your semi-automatics!)...Never forget Atty. Gen Holder's retracted early confident statement that he was going for a renewed semi-auto ban at the behest of his gun-owner hating master!. Never forget the constant bowing down the current occupant of the Oval Office has done worldwide to lesser Potentates, but in particular, to the Oligarchs of Mexico, to whom he hopes to justify a ban on semi-autos based on their constant lies about US Firearms as the source of the out of control crime-murder problem now spilling across our border, a border intentionally neglected by Washington to create said chaos to justify a totalitarian crackdown for "our own good"...Who said "Reichstag Fire"?...I heard that "Warning from history", did you? -  (S9)

Anti-Gun comparisons again fall short in recent mass mayhem incidents

An intoxicated madman slaughters 11 people with...a bulldozer, not a firearm of any type, much less a vilified so-called "evil semi-automatic assault weapon".  A criminally insane serial killer suspect is arrested whose "weapon of choice" is not the "evil semi-automatic assault weapon" political grand-standers and their running dog media allies have lied about for years, but one of mans most basic and ancient tools: The edged metal weapon. The Totalitarian anti-gun Utopians, unable to face reality, will respond with emotionalist claptrap such as "If he had a gun he would have killed more people". As typical, they are concerned with what "could have" happened rather than what actually "did" happen. Realists understand that a bulldozer and a knife are both tools designed to improve our lifestyle, but when misused are deadly weapons no different than a firearm in creating mayhem. In communist china, which has a heavy-handed controlled press, these massacres are more common than known in the west (Earlier this year a man who had stabbed a co-worker drove a bus into pedestrians and cyclists while trying to evade police. That incident left 10 people dead and 11 injured). This is due to censorship and the need to present a superior face to the world. Only in the west with a biased "free press" do we see editors publicizing and making near heroes of psychotic mass-murderers and degenerate spree killers, particularly when criminal misuse of a firearm can be exploited as mind-control propaganda. Not having a firearm available did not slow down these depraved murders one bit, many slaughtering more people than those misusing firearms. Guns don't create massacres, but certainly can stop them, (when in the hands of the righteous), a hard fact that do-gooding fools can never accept at risk of shattering their "rose colored glasses" worldview, a worldview fragile as a house of cards...(S9)

The "90%" Gun Lie Resurfaces Again

"More than 90 percent of weapons used in violent crimes in Mexico are brought in illegally from the U.S."...This line is reported as so-called "fact" by Bloomberg writers Jonathan Levin and Jens Gould in the article "Mexico Ex-President Fox calls for Drug Legalization", despite the fact that this claim is a bald-faced stinking lie...and I'm dammed sick of hearing this bogus piece of mind control repeated endlessly, (now gaining the status of "Urban Myth"), despite it being debunked over and over again, including here on this column!.

Chicago PD may get M-4 Rifles, Anti-Gun Mayor approves

Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis has plans to equip the department's officers with M4 carbines to match the firepower of the street gangs they have to face to stop the wave of shootings in the city. Weis' decision to arm and train his 13,500 officers with more powerful weapons was disclosed Friday....rank-and-file officers are currently only allowed to carry handguns...
Source is Blacklisted News
In a city with a Mayor wrong on firearms 100% of the time, this decision reflects that ignorance, and is reminiscent of Hitlers Nazi Party maintaining a monopoly on armed force while disarming the civil populace. The allegations about "heavily armed gangs" does not match the facts, and is pure propaganda, as are claims the M-4 is "more powerful" (Than what?). This is a debacle in the making, the results (unfortunate that many people will have to die violently because of it) of which should be interesting...(S9) 

AR-15's Called for by Sheriff fighting crime emergency on AZ border

Monetary Donations are being requested to purchase Patrol Rifles for Pinal County Sheriff's Deputies. Pinal County Sheriff, Paul Babeu will purchase much needed automatic rifles essential to the safety of the Sheriff's Deputies...Your partnership in this endeavor will assist in the ongoing battle being waged in Pinal County's desert areas between Sheriff's Deputies and the Mexican Drug Cartel members and their affiliates. Dangerous incidents have increased... Deputies are involved in high speed vehicle pursuits, shoot outs between deputies and smugglers, incidents of ambush, as well as the deputy who was injured in a shooting. These incidents show compelling evidence that Pinal County Deputies need automatic rifles to NOT be out-gunned by Drug and Human Smugglers...
Source article from 1560 KNZR...Data & video on the situation at County Sheriff's webpage
Recently, two men were murdered by AK-47 armed Cartel Gangsters, who are ranging into US territory with near impunity. (While the current resident in the White House and his sycophants applaud and conspire with Mexican Fat -Cat oligarchs, using the Cartel criminals as an excuse to disarm law-abiding Americans!). It is sad and frustrating that local LEO's have to go begging hat in hand to purchase equipment that should be available as standard. During WW2, Americans were called on to donate firearms to England for an anticipated Nazi invasion. Today, Americans are being called on to do the same thing for an actual invasion by armed elements in our own country, on a scale unseen since depredations by armed Bandits under the command of Pancho Villla back in 1916...(S9)

Media Bias: "Evil Assault Weapon" actually .22 Rimfire (Scare Tactics)

News media displayed this photo of a criminals confiscated semi-auto firearm, the unspoken intent is for the ignorant to think it is some kind of so-called "high-powered machine-gun capable of wiping out dozens of innocents". To firearms savvy observers, however, this deception is laughable, because the "evil conspicuously protruding" magazine is clear sided and shows the ammunition to be tiny .22 Caliber Rimfire cartridges(?!). Not to say that .22 rimfire cannot kill a human, (they can and have), but are hardly  "big bore" centerfire rounds capable of significant one shot damage that is implied by such a large firearm as shown in the photo (.22 rimfire may stop a small squirrel, groundhog or other varmint with one shot, but that's about it. After all, a well placed rock can kill also, ask the Israeli Police for proof, and just because you have a firearm does not mean you will always prevail). In a country where most "serious" firearms are banned, puny things like this are hyped up with exaggerated "mystical powers", especially when the cosmetics of the firearm can be ballyhooed as "evil". Notice how in anti-gun "Utopias" like UK/NZ/Oz, India etc "suddenly" knives and airguns are the new "terror weapons" for the scare tactic ridden media mind-controllers (and sometimes when they are not even "weapons" at all!). Ancient warriors fought with edged weapons for centuries, and could inflict damage that would make a .22 rimfire pale in comparison (Those societies tried to ban edged weapons for their enemies and subjects, and failed just as their modern conterparts will). Another example of underhanded so-called journalism by the running dog media and dishonest "law-enforcement" collaborating to propagandize a gullible public, but as "Honest Abe" Lincoln once said "You can't fool all of the people all of the time"....(S9)

Another Example:How guns end up on the Black Market (Jamaica)

Guns in barrel - 7 weapons, 1,039 rounds of ammo seized in MoBay -MONTEGO BAY, St James — Two men and a woman have been arrested in connection with yesterday's seizure of seven guns and a large quantity of assorted rounds of ammunition at a container terminal in Freeport, Montego Bay...among the weapons seized were two AK-47 rifles, which were found in a bag containing dog food in a barrel. The other guns...were found in a microwave oven..."other than the conventional magazine that comes with the AK-47 rifle, we have what is known as a drum magazine that is capable of holding more than 100 rounds of ammunition."...Describing one of the AK-47 rifles as carries an optical scope, a bayonet on the end and a folded butt...
Full media biased propaganda style report by Mark Cummings at the Jamaica Observer
Only in a country that bans firearms, with law enforcement unfamiliar with guns, would we get this claptrap about "uniqueness" over a common folding stock AK with bayonet (probably a Chinese Type 56 rifle which comes standard with a bayonet, and the folding stock variant is typical also), and an "optical scope" is no big deal either, particularly with the "scare" propaganda about the drum magazine, which implies little actual "aiming" will be going on. There is no mention if these are selective fire machinegun AK's or semi-automatic "clones". I've seen photos from one of the numerous gunfights in Mexico's Cartel wars and noticed that 100 round drum mags are seen next to the riddled cadavers of hitmen. Didn't seem to do them much good, considering that they were dead(!). No, this entry is less "news" and more editorial propaganda from the authorities and their media running dogs, designed to further intimidate the unarmed populace of Jamaica, more rightly described, in my view, as "victims". Pawns of both the criminal underworld and Jamaica's ineffectual government. They caught this shipment, but how many more have gotten through?(Plenty!). Criminals don't obey gun laws, and losing a shipment or two is just the price of business to them, in a land where a defiant armed citizenry does not exist...(S9)
