Obama boasts: We’re working on gun control “under the radar”...Seeks to ban self-defense firearms with "Executive Fiat" & Fed Agency "Catch-22's"

On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill to push for a ban on the controversial “large magazines.” Brady, for whom the law requiring background checks on handgun purchasers is named, then met with White House press secretary Jay Carney. During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.
“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar”....
The statement reinforces an article in the Huffington Post describing how the administration is exploring ways to bypass Congress and enact gun control through executive action.
The Department of Justice reportedly is holding meetings discussing the White House’s options for enacting regulations on its own or through adjoining agencies and departments. “Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “....When his agenda is too radical for Congress, Obama simply plans to bypass Congress and rule by decree...

As I have predicted since the inception of this blog, the individual in the white house, a known anti-gun fetishist, has again let it slip in public that he intends, like rats & roaches, to use underhanded & illegal tactics to do what he and his cronies are unable to accomplish in the light of day: Ban your right to self-defense by taking/outlawing your firearms. The assault on the law-abiding firearm owning citizens of the USA by their own government is still in play and these unrealistic fools who have dropped the ball all over the world (think Libya,  Afghanistan, and most recently & blatantly, Israel for example) are again displaying their Marxist theoretical ignorance, contempt for the citizenry, and contempt for the military virtues (except when it suits them for a photo Op mind you) shamelessly & arrogantly in the open, miscalculating again. This country is filled to the brim with Korean War, Viet-Nam war, actions from Grenada to Panama, Iraq & Afghanistan, etc; Veterans, (which explains his undercover push to get the V.A. to get all vets classified as mentally "unstable" and therefore unable to legally own firearms) all who have "seen the elephant", are not so easily pushed around, and know how to vote and shoot...Listen: We are all Americans, the best there ever was, have been, and are!.  As the old canard postulates: Ballot box over cartridge box: We prefer the rule of law, not Monarchy, of which to him now has an obvious appeal, despite bleating about his family members being lowly cooks for the British army, and related prior hatred of the Brits which had him sending back Winston Churchill's bust in the WH to England when he first entered the WH. No accident, after being schooled & spanked by Ben Netanyahu,  he decided to run crying like a little girl and curry favor over in the UK, a country with no regard for firearms rights whatsoever! - blame it on the Irish, right?. Law-abiding US gunowners  just want to be left alone. But if this, stupidly, blindly and ignorantly, keeps up and diplomacy fails?.............(S9)

DEA accidentally finds guns from ATF "gunwalker"

Sources say DEA accidentally came upon the guns while stopping suspects in an unrelated case in the Phoenix area on April 13th. When agents stopped at least two suspects, they found two giant garbage cans full of dozens of AK-47 type weapons wrapped in cellophane. Sources tell CBS News that a trace on the first weapon showed it was purchased in Nov. 2009 by a suspect in ATF's Fast and Furious case...At least two suspects were arrested in the April 13 DEA gun bust. Since then, sources say ATF and DEA have been in a tug of war over who should hold the weapons. The DEA is said to want to keep the weapons (and its own case) separate from ATF controversy. Today, the Dept. of Justice, which oversees DEA and ATF, provided no immediate comment or information....
---From Anti-gun biased source CBS News---
OK, we all know these people engage in mind-control, so put on your bullsh*t detector head sets when dealing with anything they put out...Comments section gleaned some truths, for example:
Dr Scary Guy said:
Wow, dozens of real ak-47 rifles? Where did they get them from? Russia in the 1950s? Or did you actually mean AKM variants, or WASR rifles? Seriously, with the way people love to sensationalize how soooo many bad guys have AK-47 rifles falling out of their orifices left and right , you would think that somebody somewhere would think to find out what an AK-47 actually is, wouldn't you? Why not just call it what it really is? Just call it a sporting rifle with less power than the average deer rifle, unless of course you really want to have a splashy, sensational story... 
We all know that the media mudsuckkerz' claim "AK-47" when in reality they are neutered semi-autos, not true AK's, which are machineguns...Bait & switch Bullshiite': Bottom line here is scare tactics to the public, which sux' even more considering we have lost Border Patrol agents killed with these "loose weapons" intentionally left out there to facilitate Political chess over the protection of citizens, both American & Mexican....(S9)

Nevada Governor Signs Important Long Gun Sales Bill

Governor Brian Sandoval signed into law Assembly Bill 217 on May 12. AB 217, introduced by Assemblyman John Ellison (R-33), allows residents of non-contiguous states to purchase long guns in Nevada.  It also allows Nevada residents to purchase long guns in non-contiguous states.  This legislation brings Nevada in line with the protections provided by the Firearms Owners Protection Act, which allows for the interstate sale of long guns by federally licensed firearms dealers....

Here's the Firearm used in the "5.56mm Justice to Osama" Op

A 416 in shorty configuration
Two military gear blogs, citing multiple insider sources, credit the highly reliable HK416 rifle, an M-16 type weapon, with the "double tap" of 5.56 mm bullets to bin Laden's head...citing multiple insider sources, credit the...HK416 rifle...with the "double tap" of 5.56 mm bullets to bin Laden's head...HK, which didn't have any immediate comment, describes the gun on its website as the perfect SEAL weapon: it shoots an effective 5.56 mm round, has a gas system that doesn't foul the weapon like some other rifles, can shoot 20,000 rounds with "minimal degradation of accuracy"...
----Full reports at Military Times and US News----
What makes this particular Orbendorfer so "Boss" is the piston driven system (a high speed update influenced by the M-1 Garand, Tokarev, & AK-47 systems) as opposed to the direct gas style of the AR-15 style setup, as it reduced powder fouling to near zero, plus it is extremely sturdy compared to piston retro-fits found on most AR-15's. I have heard that many tactical training schools have seen the AR piston Rifles currently on the market break or otherwise go out of action during training scenarios...On a related note, Sec.Gates finally got off his ass and told the presidents publicity punks and their butt-buddies in the running-dog media to STFU about our covert-ops capabilities!...Better late than never I suppose...(S9)

NRA/CRPA File Lawsuit to Force LAPD to Comply with Court-Ordered CCW Permitting Process

Not directly rifle related, but related to the previous post (and would cover semi-auto pistols) go straight to this link at NRA-ILA for full report and added link to the lawsuits and the history behind it in one of the worst states to be a gunowner in the USA, and along with San Francisco one of the worst city/counties also. Some of the most crooked anti-gun scum befouling the seats of government ever, right on par with Washington DC, New York/New Jersey, Chicago, etc...

L.A. Pols Spew Anti-Semiauto Propaganda, use LAPD & Media in publicity stunt (again)

The Cops Want your Guns: The LAPD is collecting guns in exchange for gift certificates. Most firearms are worth 100-dollars worth of groceries at Ralphs or 100-dollars credit on a prepaid Visa card, but those who surrender rifles classified as assault weapons are eligible for gift certificates worth 200-bucks.   All guns to be turned in should be unloaded and carried in the trunks of cars...stolen weapons turned in will be returned to their rightful owners, if possible, and the rest will be melted down. Last year, the L-A-P-D collected more than 25-hundred guns through its buyback program... 
----Info from Radios Station KFI Los Angeles---- 
First off, how can you "buy back" something you did not own in the first place?. Propaganda exercise that has been worn out but still used by the anti-gun fools infesting California politics, especially in anti-gun Los Angeles and San Francisco, where these publicity stunts, actually media mind-control exercises on the public, continue to burn taxpayer ca$h when these counties are crying poor and laying off Cops?: Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. I listened to KFI's audio news reports on this stunt and almost blew chunks at how blatant the propaganda clip they used is. An "official" (Spokesmouth LAPD Lt. Teague) carped on the so-called "assault weapons" issue (see above regarding the extra bounty for guns they can use for photo ops & propaganda: That is no accident, Kids!) saying how they "need" to get these guns "off the street" (well, they were not "on the street, but in people's homes. More Orwellian 'Newspeak" for the uncritical thinking masses there!) and even invoked the infamous L.A. North Hollywood shootout as a scare tactic to boot, saying that semi-autos were equivalent to machineguns  (!!??).  Let me just get Medieval here and tell it like it is: You little sissy lying punkass mutharfukkers'!: You know damn well those guns used by the terrorist bankrobbers in North Hollywood were illegally converted full-automatic machineguns, nothing near the semi-auto firearms you wanted turned in to further your propaganda! Screw you and the horse you rode in on!.  People: never forget these California Klowns want to bring their gun-confiscation schemes to your doorsteps, so fight them back at every opportunity, clean the minds around you & never surrender your rights! - (S9)

Angola seizes U.S. ship over ammunition bound for Kenya

A ship carrying military weapons belonging to Kenya is still being held in Angola...A statement from the US State Department did not, however, give details on why the Angolan Government was still holding the ship, Maersk Constellation, even after it had furnished them with details of its cargo...The US expressed concerns over the delay, saying it could affect perishable items for humanitarian programmes in Mozambique, Malawi and Rwanda. The ship is carrying about 15 million kilos of maize, soy and beans...Mr Kevin Speers of Maersk Line Ltd attributed the delay to the four containers of ammunition...Defence minister Yusuf Haji said the arms belonged to Kenya and the government did not disclose the cargo deliberately while it was still in the high seas...Angolan officials shared their concerns regarding perceived discrepancies in the ship's documentation of four containers of ammunition and stated that they intend to resolve the matter through an administrative procedure against Maersk Line Limited," the firm said in a statement. It added that Angola was awaiting more documents from Kenya...
----Full story at All-Africa----
The anti-gun influence of the U.N. and it's related leeches, the "NGO's", produce this kind of foolishness in Africa, where four stinkin' boxes of ammunition get socialist Angola (in the midst of disarming it's citizens after their civil war, AK-47's were OK then) in an uproar, despite them knowing full well this is legitimate ammo being shipped to a neighboring government. Knowing these parts as I do, I'd bet good money that someone in Angolan customs didn't get a payoff and this flap is the result. Little men in big boy pants pushing their weight around, combined with a US State Dept. headed by an anti-gun busybody (the same one who blocked import of US rifles from Korea) is now caught with their rhetoric and ideologies down around their ankles with this international incident. Please note that this story has been "spiked" in the U.S. press, not one word to possibly embarrass  U.S. officials. As usual the losers will be the African "little-guy", as it has been for centuries there...(S9)

Army’s XM2010 sniper rifle gets full fielding

The XM2010 sniper rifle is making a name for itself in Afghanistan. Officials won’t say how many are there or where they are...No matter how many are there, this is clear: The weapon’s performance has been strong enough to warrant full fielding... While the XM2010 is technically an upgraded M24 sniper rifle, the upgrades are so significant that the weapon warranted a new designator. Notably, the XM2010 transitioned from the 7.62mm NATO caliber (.308 Winchester) to a .300 Winchester Magnum. This increased a sniper’s effective range from 800 to 1,200 meters.Improvements to lethality and standoff distance were in response to feedback from Afghanistan, where snipers needed long-range capabilities...In addition to greater reach, the rifle comes with the Advanced Armament Corp. Titan-QD Fast-Attach suppressor. The 10-inch suppressor eliminates 98 percent of muzzle flash and 60 percent of recoil and reduces sound by 32 decibels, according to AAC, which recently was acquired by Remington...
----Full report at Army Times----
This bridges the gap between 7.62 NATO and .50BMG, being a bolt-action slows follow-up shots (and is, admit it, old technology, a glorified Mauser at heart), and without the recoil-reducing effect of the new suppressor, the vicious kick of the .300 WM can induce the flinch effect in the rifleman using it. Despite this, according to this report, the rifle has fans in the Stan'...(S9)
