California Tyranny: Thumbprints, ID required for the sale of ammunition

(T)akes effect February 1, 2011.  The new law requires handgun ammunition sellers to record a buyer's thumbprint along with other valid identification and make the records available to law enforcement for five years..."I think a lot of people will walk away because they don't want to have to give their information," ...Kreps said he thinks Californians are at a disadvantage because of "liberal" attitudes toward gun control...Kreps added that he sees the new law as a step in the direction of taking away all guns, and blames Nancy Pelosi. The California Rifle and Pistol Association and the National Rifle Association have filed a lawsuit to stop AB 962...

Another tyrannical move put in to law that will cause more crime than it will ever stop. As usual, the do-gooding & malicious fools who pushed this through cannot see that the real criminals will simply go out of state, load up a trunkful of ammo, drive back to the high crime areas and make a 200% or so profit on the black market, just like you see them do on the east coast with cigarette smuggling. Meanwhile the hammer falls on the people least likely to commit a violent crime, the law-abiding gun owners, who are actually more hated by the politicians whose bottoms defile our seats of government that come up with these Communo/Socialist bully-boy schemes, because the law abiding gun owner is a bigger threat to them than the violent street-criminal goblins: They don't vote, the lawful gun owners do!...P.S.: the comments at the Napa showcase some of the most firearm ignorant and hating fools I have seen spouting off their "step on your fellow-citizens neck to make me feel safe because I'm a coward" balderdash in quite a while; with an editor so biased that she cannot even see her scaly manipulations, with self-important bleating about using your real name and even veiled profanity. A few stalwarts try to set the record straight, but are clearly outnumbered when not being censored by these smug north California elitist trash. Real "forest for the trees" stuff, so get your barf-bags out...(S9)

AR-15 Rifle Planted on US Citizen Shot Dead By Mex Troops Alleged

Mexi-Troop w/HK G3 Rifle
(T)he 32-year-old New York native was dead inside his crashed van on a road outside Acapulco. He had multiple bullet wounds. An AR-15 rifle lay in his hands...It is at least the third case this year in which soldiers, locked in a brutal battle with drug cartels, have been accused of killing innocent civilians and faking evidence in cover-ups...
The military justice system operates in near total secrecy, choosing what to publicly reveal and when.
While privately informing Proctor's family about his case, Defense Department officials have publicly refused to discuss it at all. The day after his death, Guerrero state prosecutors announced to reporters that Proctor was killed after attacking a military convoy...
According to the document sent to his mother, the soldiers tried to stop Proctor and inspect his vehicle. They claim he fled, prompting one of the soldiers to shoot at him, hitting his car. The soldiers chased down the car and fired again, "wounding the driver who nonetheless continued to drive away, fleeing, crashing the car three kilometers down that road," the document said. A superior officer in the patrol told the battalion commander what happened. The battalion commander sent another officer to the scene with the AR-15 rifle "in order to be placed in the vehicle, using the hands of the deceased to try to simulate an attack against military personnel," the document says...

The Salvadorean & Nicaraguan government forces used to do this type of setup regularly during their anti-communist wars, primarily with units not influenced by US advisers.. With all the lies, distortions and mendacious propaganda waged against semi-auto/selective fire rifles like the AR-15, it is ironic that an alleged self-professed New York "gun hater", in a land with no 2nd Amendment, ends up dead with one in his hands; doubly ironic that this took place in the supposedly safe tourist mecca of Acapulco, again proving that where only the Cops & Criminals have guns, it's a De Facto Police State"...(S9)

100 AR-15 rifles are passed out to border deputies

To prepare for potential confrontation against armed gunmen, the Cameron County Sheriff’s Department recently purchased about 100 AR-15 assault rifles to be carried by deputies in their patrol cars...
Previously, deputies carried 12-gauge shotguns, which according to Lucio, while powerful only had an effective range of about 100 yards. With the new rifles, which shoot .223-caliber ammunition, the effective range tripled to approximately 300 yards. Also, the shotguns had a capacity of five to eight rounds of ammunition, while the new rifles carry 30 rounds per magazine.
“With each deputy carrying at least three magazines, it means that at any moment our guys will have 90 rounds ready to use,” Lucio said. “Also, other agencies carry the same type of weapon. In case of a major situation, our guys will be able to exchange magazines with them.”...

RCMP Bans Legal Semiautomatic rifles: Owners Resist tyranny, File Lawsuit

Several gun owners are refusing to surrender a semi-automatic rifle that was imported from China and bought legally before the RCMP retroactively declared it a prohibited weapon.The police force says that the...Norinco Type 97A can easily be converted to a fully automatic weapon and must be prohibited on that basis. But 15 gun owners...have gone to court in an effort to prevent their weapons from being confiscated...Firearms retailers say the rifle has been prohibited largely because of its appearance. Canada’s National Firearms Association says the RCMP is exceeding its mandate by reclassifying the Norinco Type 97A....“The RCMP subsequently determined 55 of these firearms were fully automatic and thus prohibited,”...gun sellers and the firearms association say the guns are semi-automatic weapons and were sold on that basis...gun owners...say any rifle can be made to fire automatically with the right tools and a little know-how. “The Simonov SKS, which is an incredibly common semi-automatic rifle in Canada, can be converted to fully automatic with as little as a popsicle stick,” one of them said...
----Full story at Canada's Globe & Mail----
Big Bullies pushing people around who are no menace to society, and even worse, doing it under color of authority! California pulled the same trick, banning the non-fixed magazine version of the SKS retroactively and arbitrarily, threatening to jail those who had legally bought the firearms (See the CA-DOJ TV commercial yourself, which I have posted at the sidebar of this blog. Mind-control at it's finest and most disgusting). Again we see the anti-gun Totalitarians willing to lie and break their own rules based on a fantasy of something that "could" happen (but has not), projecting their own spineless fears on the public and willing to put innocent people in prison to realize their mad dreams. Despicable, shameless cowards, one and all, hiding their fascistic social control schemes behind well-tailored suits rather than the more obvious jackboots or hammer & sickle logos...(S9)

BATFE Requests “Emergency” Authority To Track Semi-Automatic Rifle Sales

Obama/Clinton Axis wants BATFE to up the agression
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has proposed that it be given emergency authority for six months, beginning January 5, to require about 8,500 firearms dealers along the border with Mexico “to alert authorities when they sell within five consecutive business days two or more semiautomatic rifles greater than .22 caliber with detachable magazines.”  A Washington Post story reporting on the BATFE proposal described that definition as being applicable to “so-called assault weapons,” but it would also apply to many rifles that have never been labeled with that term...
DOJ Inspector General Proposes Multiple Sales Reports on Long Guns 
the Justice Department Inspector General had called into question the BATFE’s mega-million-dollar Project Gunrunner program...Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has joined Mexico’s president, Felipe Calderon, as a card-carrying member of the “Blame America First Club”—perverting the traditional economic model known as “supply and demand” to fault the United States for supposedly “supplying” guns to law-breakers who smuggle the guns to Mexico, and for “demanding” the drugs that the Mexican cartels smuggle into our country...a straight-faced Calderon told a joint meeting of Congress ..."there is one issue where Mexico needs your cooperation, and that is stopping the flow of assault weapons and other deadly arms across the border.”...Calderon’s hypocrisy got a free pass from the nation’s anti-Second Amendment “news” media...

U.S. Army deploys rifles with radio-controlled smart bullets

XM25 Semiautomatic 25mm "Sci-Fi" Gun a reality
The U.S. Army’s long-awaited, experimental 25mm airburst weapon is headed for battlefields in Afghanistan this month. Labeled a “game-changer,” the $35,000 high-tech rifle is capable of firing explosive bullets that can detonate front of or behind a target....Once the trigger is pulled and the round leaves the barrel, a computer chip inside the ammunition receives information from the scope about how far it should travel before exploding....
----Full article by Chris Jablonski at ZD----
Shades of the smart-bullets seen in the 1984 Sci-Fi film "Runaway" with Tom Selleck (Gene "Kiss" Simmons as a ruthless Terr, plus Kirstie Alley, (when she was still hot, in a leather mini-skirt & spike heels). This is tech that will put a serious hurtn' on the Terrs & , more importantly, free the Infantry from fear of "short rounds", but the downside: hoping this no longer secret weapon falls in enemy hands. Many will pay big buck$ to get a captured example to reverse engineer, particularly the Chi-Coms, Ivans, & Nippons...(S9)

Yet Again, Media Exaggerates Scale of Gun Smuggling from U.S. Into Mexico

Federale w/German HK Rifle

Sadly, the Post ignores the Mexican context, and sticks to the tried and true role of blaming the United States for Mexico’s problems...this number says nothing about the percentage of guns seized in Mexico that originated in the U.S., because the U.S. does not trace – because they are not of U.S. origin, and so are not submitted by Mexican authorities to the U.S. for tracing – the majority of guns seized in Mexico. According to the GAO, the number of guns seized in Mexico that have been traced back to the U.S. has ranged from 5,260 in 2005 to 1,950 in 2006 to 3,060 in 2007 to 6,700 in 2008. That is a total of about 17,000, nowhere close to 60,000. There really should not be any dispute about this. It is not an argument about policy. It is about nothing more, or less, than who can look up a number in a government publication more accurately. To its credit, the Post does give the National Rifle Association space for rebuttal, but it leaves the impression that “the gun lobby” is simply trying to defend a long-discredited position. The reality is that, if 60,000 guns – or 75,000, as President Calderon said in May – have been seized in Mexico in recent years, less than a third have been traced back to the U.S.
Amazingly, the Post even acknowledges that “most guns seized in Mexico [are] not traced.” If that is so, then it is obviously impossible to know what proportion of guns came from the United States...

Semi-Autos("Assault Rifles") are used legally for hunting, target shooting

There is a long history of military weapons being adapted to civilian uses. Rifles of this type are used legally for hunting, personal defense and target shooting to include the national rifle championships and a number of local shooting events. These uses by far outnumber the illegal uses of such guns. While the federal ban did sunset, multiple laws on the state level remain in place...The pistol grip does not encourage the use of hip shooting...because it is nearly impossible to control where the rounds hit when fired in this manner. The collapsible stocks...make it easier to fit them to smaller-statured youth or female shooters...The key to eliminating illegal use of these items is to aggressively prosecute those using them illegally with the current statutes in place...

Police State Nippon: Gun stores on strike/Cop arrested for personal firearms

"Enemies Foreign & Domestic" dislike armed citizens

Tokyo gun stores go on strike to protest stricter possession laws - The strike is the first for any gun store organization in the country.The stricter controls were put into place when revisions to the Firearms and Swords Control Law came into effect on Dec. 4 last year.Those revisions were spurred by a shotgun shooting spree at a sports club in Sasebo, Nagasaki Prefecture, in Dec. 2007 that killed one and injured six. Under the revised law, people must present the results of a diagnosis by a psychiatrist or other qualified doctor and are also required to take a training course at a shooting range whenever they renew their license, which must be done every three years."Many people have abandoned the idea of owning a gun because the requirements are too much trouble," says the organization...Masahide Maeda of Tokyo Metropolitan University, a professor specializing in the Penal Code who supports the revised law, sounds a different note."It's hard to justify putting the profits of the gun business ahead of the welfare of our citizens," he says. "I think it's a good thing if the gun industry shrinks."...
Osaka cop busted for cache of illegal weapons, ammo at home: Investigators arrested 48-year-old Chikashi Ikeda, a sergeant at the community affairs division of the Osaka Prefectural Police's Minoo Police Station on Dec. 6 on suspicion of possessing a .32 caliber pistol and ammunition at his home...in violation of the Firearms and Swords Control Law. Police seized four firearms from Ikeda's home...the weapons recovered were .22, .32, and .38 caliber pistols and one antique gun, accompanied by about 200 rounds of ammunition. Ikeda has claimed the items were left to him by his father, who passed away last January..."It is extremely regrettable that a police officer was involved in an abominable act like this. We will investigate the facts and punish the suspect severely," said the head of the inspection department....

Let's just cut to the "politically incorrect" chase and tell it like it really is in Nippon. It has been said that it was no great trick for the Japanese Facists that led the country into World War 2, to take away what little freedoms the people had in the first place, since they had been socially and politically brainwashed and cowed by (corrupt) authorities for centuries. Non conformity leads to a freakishly high suicide rate, and the current weapons control laws (ironically instituted by U.S. General, and egomaniac, Douglas MacArthur; Whose heavy-handed violence against WW1 Veteran protesters in the U.S. still stains the reputation of the U.S. Army) remains heartily endorsed for the common people and are a major part of the soft tyranny police state Japan remains today. Yet there are those in the USA who point to Japans "high culture" as an excuse to impose their gun-control schemes in America, a constitutional republic 180 degrees opposite that forbids infringement on the right to keep and bear arms. Germany also has a "high culture", yet still produced Nazi tyranny and the bloodbath that resulted from it. It doesn't take a genius to see that this is not the way to go for the USA. Only subservient gullible socialistic fools with no guts or commonsense (or criminal minded bullies with tyranny on the brain) would think these are good ideas for the USA...(S9)

Heroic Rancher Killed in Action, leaves 4 dead Cartel Hitmen in blazing Gunbattle (Videos)

When Mexican Marines arrived at the San Jose Ranch, 15 kilometers from Victoria, Tamaulipas, the scene was bleak: The austere main house was practically destroyed by grenades and heavy gunfire. Outside of the home, they found four bodies. Cautiously, and with their weapons drawn, the troops continued inspecting the exterior and found two more gunmen, wounded and unconscious, but alive. Inside the house only one body was found, riddled with bullets and with two weapons by it's side. The body was identified as Don Alejo Garza Tamez, the owner of the ranch...the man had created his own defense strategy to fight alone, placing weapons at every door and window...trucks entered the ranch and...gunmen got out of their trucks, fired shots in the air, and announced they came to take possession of the ranch. They were expecting the terrified occupants to run out, begging for mercy with their hands in the air. But things didn't go as expected. Don Alejo welcomed them with bullets; the entire army of gunmen returned fire...Various gunmen were killed on sight. The others, in rage and frustration, intensified the attack by swapping out their assault rifles for grenades...a 77 year old man, who before death, took out four gunmen, fighting the same as the best soldiers: with dignity, courage, and honor....

In Vietnam era G.I. slang, the highest compliment for a hard fighting comrade killed in battle was: "He bought the farm, but he took a lot of them with him". Don Garza, the definition of manly courage, fought a desperate battle against overwhelming odds and was still so hard to kill, the enemy had to use high-explosive grenades to prevail against him!. Don Garza decided it was better to fight on his feet than live on his knees against the forces of evil raping his homeland, personally sending 4 murdering cartel scum to hell and dealing out serious pain to several more. He died hard with his boots on, and the world, especially Mexico, is a lesser place without heroes like him. R.I.P., Don Alejo Garza!...(Call me cynical, but I cannot help but wonder, however, how many Mexican gun laws he violated collecting the firearms he used in his last stand)....(S9)
