It will never be enough for those who desire to control minds & weapons...In case you haven't heard, Japan is a Police State, always has been. Gun toting Police "raid" sword societies looking to make arrests for "illegal possession" of art object swords. In a society with few legal firearms, Illegal swords are "suddenly" a big deal, I mean what a menace to society, hundreds of people are cut down with swords every year...Uh, no...Wait...(S9)

Afghan insurgents hand over weapons

A group of insurgents handed over their weapons to a military unit led by Afghan intelligence services taking part in a reintegration program under way in the country. The militants handed over a batch of assault rifles, machine guns and grenade launchers in exchange for information on reintegration programs in Badghis province, NATO said. Badghis Gov. Dilbar Jan Arman Shinwari was quoted as saying the reintegration effort was a step in the right direction for his country. "Acts like this are a clear demonstration that the path we're taking is the correct one towards reconstruction and progress in Afghanistan," he said...

The usual Kalashnikov A.K.'s & other Russian pattern weapons no doubt. A glorified publicity stunt like the so-called "Gun Buyback" programs U.S. Anti-Gun Nuts are so fond of? (Q: How can you "Buy back" something you never "owned" in the first place?) or a bit of good news that you will never hear from the U.S./U.K. "lamestream" media, who in perpetual replay of Vietnam coverage, only report when our Troops are killed or injured, but never when our heroic Troops (Fighting with one hand tied behind their backs) close with and destroy the enemy. You make the call...(S9)

California Gun Ban Ordinance Beaten Back

The Santa Clara City Council was scheduled to adopt Ordinance No. 1863, which would prohibit the possession of firearms in city parks...But the item was withdrawn from consideration by unanimous vote of the City Council when...legal concerns (were) brought up by a letter received from National Rifle Association (“NRA”) and California Rifle and Pistol Association (“CRPA”) attorneys...In recent years cities in California, and now in other states as well, have been bombarded with gun ban lobby anti-gun proposals, including proposed complete bans on the possession of (semi-auto so-called) “assault weapons” (where that term is defined far more broadly than under the state law) and “sniper rifles,” bans on magazines that hold over ten rounds, one-gun-per-month restrictions, ammo sales registration bureaucracies, “trigger lock” laws that prohibit many guns from being sold because no trigger lock exists that fits the gun, “safe” storage laws that would make criminals of those who keep a gun ready to use for self-defense, ultra restrictive zoning laws that put gun dealers out of business, gun show bans, oppressive gun and ammo taxes, and most recently, pending proposals to ban ammo sales entirely and to ban “ultra-compact” handguns (any gun under 6 3/4 inches long or under 4 ½ inches tall). (Several lawsuits challenging some of these ordinances are pending.)...

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) awarded the company an unrestricted open market competitive Firm-Fixed-Price Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite -Quantity (ID/IQ) multiple-award contract for the Military & Police (M&P40) pistol.

The potential value of the contract award is $40 million over 10 years.

Actor admits: "Guns, rifles scare me: George Clooney"

Custom Ruger Mini-14 Semiauto (Folding stock, Scope, Supressor)
"Guns, rifles – there’s something frightening about them. Still. Although I’ve grown up with them in Kentucky and although I’ve had to use them in a lot of my films. I’ve learnt to use them, but I’m still scared of them,’ contactmusic.com quoted Clooney as saying"...

A healthy " fear" (respect) of guns shows a sane mind, unlike an irrational fear of guns, aka "Hoplophobia". At least I give Clooney credit for not being a hypocrite or a sissy about making a living using blank firing guns in films, unlike 007 James Bond actors Daniel Craig and Sir Roger Moore, who both have stated they "hate" firearms, yet no scruples about getting paid playing a character that risks life and limb defending their country by use of firearms!. Pantywaisted Pommie phonies!...(S9)

Patrol ups ante against criminals with assault rifles for troopers ("S&W MP-15" AR's)

The Nevada Highway Patrol is using nearly $1 million to buy assault rifles for all 500 troopers and Division of Investigations detectives...“We're no longer faced with a criminal element that is armed with the old-style Saturday night special”...Increasingly, law enforcement is facing violent criminals — some with military training — armed with assault rifles. “They're no longer afraid to take on multiple officers”...The money for the purchases...comes from funds generated by criminal forfeitures of everything from cash to equipment and vehicles used in crimes. The rifles themselves, made by Smith and Wesson, will cost $377,500...Assemblywoman Sheila Leslie, D-Reno, said....the decision as an “end run” around legislative authority...

Sheriff’s office gets $14,000 worth of rifles (AR-15 Pattern)

Thanks to the generosity of citizens of Mississippi County, sheriff’s office deputies will soon have up-to-date weapons. Members of the public contributed enough money to buy 20 Panther A2 rifles...“After what happened to the officers in West Memphis, I wanted our deputies to know how much we value them and their efforts to protect us,” (Justice of the Peace) McDaniel said...

The Police should not have to go begging hat in hand to obtain equipment, but the citizens that contributed know the score much better than the anti-gun politicians and Utopian fools who have no interest in public safety when firearms are involved, preferring to highlight murderous criminal misuse of firearms rather than defenders saving lives with firearms...(S9)

Drumbeat of Lies Continue about U.S. Semiautos By Mex Prez & Clinton/Obama Totalitarians

U.S. weapons fuel drug violence, Mexico's president says -"The 2004 end to the U.S. federal assault weapons ban gave criminals new resources, he (Mexican President Felipe Calderon) said."They gained access to powerful firearms that they didn't have before"...Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have repeatedly publicly acknowledged that the United States plays a role in drug violence. "It's not only guns; it's weapons, it's arsenals of all kinds that come south," Clinton told the Council on Foreign Relations"...

The armed forces of Mexico, armed with the best weapons & troops available to the country, still are unable to defeat the Cartel terrorist hitmen, which has more to do with tactics, motivation, and corruption than firearms & the 2nd Amendment in the U.S. Repeating lies about where the Cartels obtains the vast majority of their weapons cannot change the FACTS!. The propaganda mind-control LIES the anti-gun Running Dog Media regularly pushes out never questions these FACTS, since their agenda is to support the Liars (i.e. The Anti-gun Totalitarians)...The evidence against these lies are overwhelming, and have been refuted just as repeatedly, including on this Blog, links can (again) can be found here...So don't believe the hype of the lying mind-controllers and be a gullible dupe! - (S9)

(Video) N.Y. Man Arrested For Defending Home/Family with Semiauto Kalashnikov ("AK-47")


He got an AK-47 assault rifle, pulled the trigger and he ended up in jail, reports CBS 2’s Pablo Guzman. George Grier said he had to use his rifle on Sunday night to stop what he thought was going to be an invasion of his Uniondale home by a gang he thought might have been the vicious “MS-13...“He starts threatening my family, my life. ‘Oh you’re dead. I’m gonna kill your family and your babies. You’re dead.’ So when he says that, 20 others guys come rushing around the corner. And so I fired four warning shots into the grass”...
Had the firearm not been a "Dreaded Evil AK-47", this story may not have been more than a footnote in the daily crime blotter, especially since no one was injured. The "Gun grabbers" favorite anti-semiauto talking point is invariably"Why does anyone need an AK-47?". Well this is an example "why": One man outnumbered by 20 plus unruly Hoodlums holds a firearm with a 30 round magazine capacity: This can equalize and deter what could be certain death for the lone defender until the Police arrive to defuse the situation. The Anti-Gun Utopians prefer dead victims to lone defenders every time, however. In my view, I agree with what Gen. Douglas MacArthur once intoned: "There is no substitute for victory". Citizen Grier's firearm (& 2nd Amendment liberty) made that victory possible!....(S9)

Obama/Clinton "M-1Gun Ban" Furor continues; Inquiries given the runaround

Obama Administration Reverses Course, Forbids Sale of 850,000 Antique Rifles - The Obama administration approved the sale of the American-made rifles last year. But it reversed course and banned the sale in March – a decision that went largely unnoticed at the time but that is now sparking opposition from gun rights advocates..."Any guns that retail in the United States, of course, including these, can only be sold to someone who passes the National Instant Check System," said David Kopel, research director at the conservative Independence Institute. "There is no greater risk from these particular guns than there is from any other guns sold in the United States."...(Chris Cox) called the administration's decision "a de facto gun ban, courtesy of Hillary Clinton's State Department"...Kopel said that he hopes the State Department spokesman's statement that it is working to "dispose" of the guns does not mean they want to melt them down."It seems to have this implication of destruction, which would be tremendously wasteful," he said. "These are guns that should be in the hands of American citizens for marksmanship and safety training"...The White House referred questions on the issue to the Pentagon, which referred questions to the U.S. Embassy in South Korea, which deferred back to the State Department..."M1s are used for target practice. For history buffs, they're highly collectible. We're going to continue to make sure that this backdoor effort that infringes not only on lawful commerce but on the Second Amendment is rectified"...----Full story @ Fox News----
As I said in an earlier report on this fiasco:  "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"...I might add that with the current budget situation, why would they turn down the vast amount of money the sale of these to the U.S.  public would generate?.  Blind hatred of Gun Owners and simpering submission to the Gun-Ban Utopian Bloc seem to be the only conclusions available...(S9)

California Tyranny: Victory for Gun Owners in CA.

"Yesterday, Tuesday, August 31, lawmakers in the Golden State heard loud and clear the voices of pro-gun advocates when they defeated three dangerous pieces of anti-gun legislation. Assembly Bill 1810 would have established a registration system, similar to the one currently in place for handguns, for all newly-acquired long guns...Assembly Bill 1934 was a blatant attack on the self-defense rights of law-abiding Californians.  This legislation sought to outlaw the open carrying of a handgun for self-defense...AB2358 would have forced licensed state ammunition retailers to obtain a special local license to operate in municipalities...Without you, success in these battles would not have been possible.  While this is certainly a momentous occasion for California’s gun owners, anti-gun forces are sure to continue their offensive against our rights"...

Despite underhanded tactics, like repeatedly bringing back the same Bill after it was voted down (In one case nearly 10 times!), the battle went on all evening right up to the wire at midnight!. Hard-fighting pro-gun forces were victorious against the Totalitarian Utopians evil oppressive attempts to impose even more tyranny upon the people. Gun owners everywhere should thank these freedom fighters, because whatever is imposed in California will be coming your way too, so a victory there is a victory everywhere! - (S9)
