Intimidation: Law would fire sheriffs for defying gun control measures

*Real Cops are pro-gun*
We knew this was coming, the usual from the current regime: 1) Attack any who dare to "defy" them and 2) Invoke the murdered children's corpses as emotional talisman's to browbeat those who would defy them. Notice that they NEVER invoke the thousands of people whose lives were SAVED by the presence of a firearm, no, cannot do that since it does not fit their anti-gun propaganda narrative!...Sheriffs are elected officials, not appointed officials who owe slavish allegiance to the political whims of the Mayors, like most big-city anti-gun Police chiefs. Those that cannot be "controlled" must be destroyed, and we see this in action with intimidation and threats against the "Constitutional Sheriffs" Movement. The regime, despite having overwhelming lawyer power on their side (Not to mention Bloomberg's millions of dollars: do not think the state-by-state tactic is an accident!), will be running into a minefield here, since similar federal laws are already being ignored, such as federal marijuana laws, so precedent has already been set. The bumbling fools of the regime yet again show their ham handed thuggish gangster side masked as phoney "compassion", in this unending war against semi-auto firearms and their owners... (S9)

Supporters of the 380 sheriffs in 15 states who so far have vowed to defy new state and federal gun control laws claim that legislation is starting to pop up around the nation to fire any state elected or appointed law enforcement official who doesn't obey federal orders.
The first effort emerged in Texas...What's more, it would remove any elected or appointed law enforcement officer for simply stating or signing any document stating that they will not obey federal orders...

Gun Confiscation California Style: What it looks like - What Registration leads to - What it could become

California already has gun registration, listing owners who legally bought firearms, which means they know where to go to confiscate them. State DOJ Agents are going door to door confiscating guns from "prohibited persons". This is why "background checks" are being pushed at the Federal level: To create a national gun owner registry. Now when someone tries to tell you this is nonsense, look at California: They have a list and are forcibly confiscating guns, so don't say it cannot happen in the USA, it already is.  Now you have to ask yourself some questions: Today, they are confiscating guns from convicted felons (violent & non-violent), Misdemeanor "Domestic violence" violators, and alleged "mentally unstable" persons. Question 1: How easy do you think it would be for YOU to suddenly be judged  as a "prohibited person" under these criteria? and Question 2: How easy do you think it would be for this system to be abused with additional categories of prohibited person added on that YOU might fall under?. We have heard the reports of, for example, military veterans being declared a "suspect class" that may be targeted for firearms prohibition. What would stop politicians from arbitrarily declaring a host of different classes?. Next it could be those convicted of DUI (Questionable judgement), how about those who have declared bankruptcy?(Irresponsible) or political affiliations? (Like the Nazis did. NRA Members?) or even those who were arrested for legitimate self-defense situations whose charges were later dropped? (Use a gun, knife or empty hand to defend yourself, lose your gun rights!). The list could be a mile long. As late actor Aldo Ray once said: "It doesn't take a lead weight to fall on me" to see what is at stake here. The Canadians fought hard and finally got rid of their gun registry, yet nefarious forces want one here nationwide(?). Another fact to remember, California gets away with this stuff because there is no RKBA clause in the State Constitution. making it much easier to infringe on gun owners rights. This is what California, the State who gave us Feinstien (and "No Death Penalty for Cop Killers Kamala Harris), wants to foist on the entire nation. One stroke of the pen in the hands of a tyrant and suddenly YOU will be the one with armed agents knocking on (or kicking in) your door. Whatcha' gonna' do when they come for your firearms, Victim?... (S9) 
P.S.: Note the source of this report, an arch anti-gun fanatic...

California Seizes Guns as Owners Lose Right to Keep Arms


Wearing bulletproof vests and carrying 40-caliber Glock pistols, nine California (STOCA1)Justice Department agents assembled outside a ranch-style house in a suburb east of Los Angeles. They were looking for a gun owner who’d recently spent two days in a mental hospital...California is the only state that tracks and disarms people with legally registered guns who have lost the right to own them, according to Attorney General Kamala Harris. Almost 20,000 gun owners in the state are prohibited from possessing firearms, including convicted felons, those under a domestic violence restraining order or deemed mentally unstable...She recommended that Biden, heading a White House review of gun policy, consider California as a national model...Other states may lack confiscation programs because they don’t track purchases as closely as California, which requires most weapons sales go through a licensed dealer and be reported. “Very, very few states have an archive of firearm owners like we have,” said Wintemute, who helped set up the program...The no-gun list is compiled by cross-referencing files on almost 1 million handgun and assault-weapon owners with databases of new criminal records and involuntary mental-health commitments. About 15 to 20 names are added each day, according to the attorney general’s office...“The prohibited person can’t have access to a firearm,” regardless of who the registered owner is, said Michelle Gregory, a spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office...Agents more often arrest convicted felons who are prohibited from buying, receiving, owning or possessing a firearm, Gregory said. Violation of the ban is itself a felony...

U.N. Dictating U.S. Firearms Policy?: Here is why, despite foreign and domestic anti-Gun fanatics, American Constitutionalists will resist

The UN will never understand the USA firearms traditions and culture, here is an example as to why. This is what you get when only the government and those who seek to take over the government are the only armed groups in a country. It is inevitable that armed groups will soon start abusing the unarmed civilians at gunpoint because they can, then factions begin warring among themselves. The anti-gun leftists in the USA arrogantly assume they will be in control once all guns have been confiscated at their behest. They are fools who do not understand Satayana's classic observation: "Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it"...(The long forgotten and little known sadistic 1960's Rebels of the Congo were out of control, with mass murder as daily "entertainment" rivaling the Roman circuses. Barbaric brutality of sickening proportions result when the Dogs of Murder are let loose under the guise of the Dogs of War)...Every person and politician working against the 2nd Amendment, aware of the unintended consequences or not, are creating the groundwork for a similar scenario here in the USA...We must NOT let that happen...(S9)

C. African Republic president overthrown by rebels



The U.N. chief appealed for calm and reiterated that the January peace agreements "remain the most viable framework to ensure durable peace and stability in the country," Nesirky said. Ban also expressed deep concern at reports of serious human rights violations. 

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the unconstitutional seizure of power and called for the swift restoration of constitutional order, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said...
"The political committee of the Seleka coalition, made up of Central Africans of all kinds, calls on the population to remain calm and to prepare to welcome the revolutionary forces of Seleka," it said. Central African Republic, a nation of 4.5 million, has long been wracked by rebellions and power grabs...has been marked by conflict with myriad armed groupsThe rebels reached the outskirts of Bangui ...Heavy gunfire echoed through the city Sunday as the fighters made their way to the presidential palace...They demanded Bozize send home South African forces who were helping bolster the country's military. They also sought to integrate some 2,000 rebel fighters into Central African Republic's armed forces (I.e.: Full employment, Rebel style - S9)...Bangui was plunged into darkness after fighters cut power to much of the city. State radio went dead, and fearful residents cowered in their homes...South African Brig. Gen. Xolani Mabanga, the country's military spokesman, said there had been "intense" fighting this weekend between rebels and South African forces. "Our base was attacked by the rebels as they were advancing toward the capital," he said. We have suffered some casualties," he said. He declined to provide the number of casualties...

Bloomberg to spend $12 Million, NRA vows to resist "He can't buy America"

Where is the outrage when elitist Bloomberg openly says he is spending millions to buy elections?. Where is the outrage when he openly states his gun-ban agenda takes advantage of the dead bodies of murdered schoolchildren?. All the (biased media) vitriol is reserved to attack and ridicule the NRA, who stand on principle, not the corruption of literally buying influence to destroy gun-rights, by pushing around law-abiding citizens and pro-rights politicians. Bloomberg's narcissistic ego, that he is the Lord and Master of the "little people", with the Divine right of Kings to demand we subjects bow to his tyrannical and meddling will (not much different from the elitist mentioned earlier, Ben Carson). It remains to be seen how gullible, cowed or resistant the public will be in reaction to Bloomberg's anti-gun propaganda hate machine's antics and lies...(S9)

I have a responsibility ... to try to make this country safer,” Bloomberg said on “Meet the Press” when asked if he’d spend big-time in next year’s elections to target the National Rifle Association and members of Congress for opposing gun restrictions. “If I can do that by spending some money...then I think my money will be well spent and I think I have an obligation to do that,” he said...Banning assault weapons, Bloomberg acknowledged, will be a tougher sell. “I don’t think we should give up on the assault weapons ban...Bloomberg said the country must not lose the opportunity to crack down on guns offered by the Newtown massacre... In a separate appearance on “Meet the Press,” NRA honcho Wayne LaPierre: " they don’t want him telling them what food to eat, they sure don’t want him telling them what self-defense firearms to own,” he said. “He can’t buy America.”...“We have people all over, millions of people sending us five-, 10-, 15-, 20-dollar checks saying, ‘Stand up to this guy.’”...

‘Conservative Hero’ Ben Carson: You Have No Right To Semi-Automatic Weapons In Large Cities

Brilliant Doctor cannot understand the meaning of "Shall not be Infringed"(?) and indicates he is ignorant about firearms to make such a statement, apparently thinking semi-autos function as full-automatic machineguns (and that gun owners are irresponsible dolts who leave firearms about to be stolen by "crazy persons"). All that education but a dumbass when it comes to these subjects, just another petit tyrant in a suit, like Bloomberg. Oh well. Move along, Doctor, GTFO of the way and make room for those that know what they are talking about and willing to defend the Constitution with a focus on the 2nd Amendment...(S9)

Dr. Benjamin Carson took a vastly different stance from most conservatives on the issue of gun control, claiming you shouldn’t be able to own semi-automatic weapons in large cities... when asked whether people should be allowed to own “semi-automatic weapons,” the doctor replied: “It depends on where you live.” “I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it,” Carson elaborated...

Police M-16 Rifles Frighten, Embarrass Local Politicians

*M-16A1 rifle pictured at top*
If the town is so cash strapped, they could have kept their big mouths shut and sold these classic rifles for quite a profit on the collectors market. Instead, they blab to the media and let criminals know just where they can steal some machine-guns and other goodies. (Just like the motorized Bandits: Dillinger, Nelson, Pierpont, Barrow, etc: of the 1920's used to do, raid small town armories for weapons). The Feds will just destroy these priceless treasures. What a waste. Politically correct weak kneed Politicos = Terminally dumb egomaniacs....(S9)

Inside the safe are 10 Vietnam-era, automatic M-16 assault rifles...the M-16s were obtained from a federal government surplus program...the M-16s and night vision goggles, (were) obtained through the Law Enforcement Support Organization. The program allows local police departments in all 50 states to borrow surplus military gear without cost, ranging from weapons and high-tech radios to Humvees..."It's not even legal for me to handle them," he said. "I'm going to turn them back over to the federal government as soon as I can. I don't think we need them. Maybe one, but not 10."

Seagal asked to help stop firearms import restrictions on Russians

Seagal, with a reputation on both sides of the law (putting on handcuffs and wearing them also) is likely the last person the Russians should depend on to change a firearms export law, which even many U.S. gun-owners know nothing about, just another "routine" infringement on the 2nd Amendment RKBA disguised as something else...(S9)

Semi-Auto Ban: Case study in the politics of frivolity

*Local Police waived gun laws to permit these  guns be used as backdrop*

California already has a semi-auto ban (soon about to get worse), gun registration and has had confiscations of firearms and people jailed from that list on a regular basis. Feinstien seeks to carry these tyrannical edicts nationwide, most recently over the dead bodies of children when she dragged out from the vaults her shopworn updated "Assault weapons Ban". Writer Jeb Golinkin has an interesting take on the subject - (S9)
---
all available evidence suggests that an assault weapons ban would have a negligible impact on safety. Of course, that point is one of substance, and nothing about the debate over the proposed AWB has anything to do with whether it will or will not work. Everything about the proposed renewal of the AWB is theatrics and serves as yet another example of the triumph of style at the expense of substance in our national politics... Sen. Feinstein is widely viewed as the darling of the anti-gun movement and its allies. By proposing the AWB, Sen. Feinstein can tell all of the donors who care about the gun issue that she fought for the most aggressive legislation possible, and that she will keep fighting — which will lead to more donations...By now, you have probably seen the "heated" exchange between Feinstein and the fiery junior senator from Texas, in which Cruz lectures Feinstein about the Second Amendment and Feinstein snaps back that she is not a sixth grader...Cruz is basically just the opposite of Feinstein in that he was elected and funded by people who love firearms and hate the Assault Weapons Ban with a visceral passion...The biggest loser is the American people...Our leaders must get out of the habit of wasting taxpayer resources drafting, amending, debating, and voting on legislation that has no chance of becoming law...

AR-15 Gun Lockers for Police in Schools approved by 7 to 1 Vote (Maine)

Police will be able to stow AR-15 patrol rifles inside Brunswick’s public schools after a 7-1 school board vote Wednesday.
Board members approved new, larger lockers for school resource officers to secure their larger weapons while on duty at the schools.
Official costs were not available, but the expense of the lockers is estimated to be several hundred dollars each.
Officers routinely carry their sidearms inside schools, said Detective Mike Andreotti, but have left their “patrol rifles” in their squad cars parked outside the schools. Andreotti told the board that having the larger weapons within the schools will allow them to respond to emergency situations more readily.
School board member Brenda Clough voted against the proposal...

Making the next Massacre Count: Behind Bloombergs Big Cash Anti-Gun Hate Machine

*Bloomberg fondles a hated Black rifle*
A chronicle of the Bloomberg Anti-Gun Rights Big Money Mind Control Machine, and how he prepared in advance to pounce on the next mass-murder spree where a firearm was misused. Bloomberg enjoys using his millions of dollars like a blunt instrument, a Cudgel, and seems to obtain near orgasmic pleasure at beating down all who oppose his Dictatorial schemes. Bloomberg and his fanatical toadies are true lovers of tyranny, and follow the classic route of using America's freedoms in order to destroy America. Grab your air-sickness bag and duct tape your head before reading this expose', even if you think you know the subject, because Bloomberg and his cynical, twisted mindset reach a new level of appalling..Note: Many Mayors names were put on Bloomberg's list by staffers. After finding out it was a front group for Bloomberg money, and refusing to be manipulated, scores of Mayors withdrew from MAIG....(S9)
---
The campaign that Mr. Bloomberg and his “gun team” came up with in the hours and days after Aurora involved carpet-bombing Washington with millions from the mayor’s immense fortune and a media blitz that would be deployed following the next massacre.
“He was so frustrated by the lack of conversation around this issue … that he decided to force the conversation himself,” Howard Wolfson, deputy mayor for government affairs and communications, told Politicker.
By 5 a.m., just a few hours after the shooting, Mr. Bloomberg was emailing members of his staff, preparing a media offensive... The moment had come—in fact, it had come and gone several times. The next time a tragedy like Aurora went down, he would be ready...Bloomberg’s first national initiative was called Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group he co-founded with Boston Mayor Tom Menino in 2006...the group grew from 15 mayors who attended the inaugural summit at Gracie Mansion to more than 900. They shared gun control strategies and launched a PR campaign that included two Super Bowl ads. Bloomberg’s anti-gun battle plan would be driven by data and paid for largely with the mayor’s vast personal fortune, allowing him to fuel the national conversation on gun control. Mr. Wolfson said this strategy “didn’t really crystallize until after Aurora” and stemmed from the mayor’s “real disappointment with the lack of focus...on this issue and the sense that the NRA had the field to itself.”...
With Mayors Against Illegal Guns functioning as the propaganda arm of Mr. Bloomberg’s anti-gun movement, its military arm is Independence USA PAC, a political action committee that the mayor created in October and tapped Mr. Wolfson to lead. The so-called super PAC is dedicated to electing politicians who support his gun control proposals—and defeating those who don’t.
Using approximately $10 million of the mayor’s money, the PAC saw three of the six candidates it backed in November House races go on to win; the impact of the mayor’s money on those races was hard to gauge...Staten Island Congressman Michael Grimm told us during a December conversation about Bloomberg’s stature in Washington. “This is a guy that by virtue—just by the virtue of his financial means, is a player whether you like it or not. I mean he is because he has the clout to be that.”...

Building AR-15 Rifles is Kentucky man's business

*Wall full of custom AR-15's*
This man reportedly makes a superior bad-ass product. However...If the reportage of what this owner said to the female reporter is accurate, then I call him a favor currying exploitation monger, in it for the cash, not the art as he purports, and more than willing to sell out/stab-in-the-back the very people he is building rifles for, when the Anti-Gun Nuts ram through bans and confiscations. (But then, I am pretty strict politically speaking when it comes to RKBA. He would be singing a different tune were he trying this in California, where the fight is unending and vicious). This piece is more accurate than the usual media biased anti-gun BS we normally see, so you make the call... (S9)

Lexingtonian Keith Pitts' small but growing business, is a little different.
Pitts, 55, is a Kentucky craftsman who does precise, painstaking work...what he makes are semiautomatic "assault-style" rifles, specifically the AR-15 that's adored by gun enthusiasts but abhorred by advocates of stricter gun regulations...The AR-15 — AR refers not to "assault rifle" but to ArmaLite, the company that developed the first one in the 1950s — has always been popular with gun collectors. Built as the civilian equivalent of the military's M-16...Quite a few companies manufacture AR-15s in the United States, but the quality varies. Pitts builds his models to meet or exceed military specifications, or "mil spec" in gun talk. He has standing contracts with the military to build parts, which must meet military standards for materials, dimensions, durability and accuracy...
A poster and banner advertise "Accurate Armory — The New Kentucky Rifle." (That's in contrast to the old Kentucky rifle, which was a muzzleloader that helped America win its independence.)...Pitts personally supports stricter background checks and closing the gun-show loophole. But he isn't too worried about the possibility of stricter gun laws targeting the AR-15. "I can develop other platforms," he says... Pitts says his customers — hunters, collectors, target shooters — will adapt if high-capacity magazines are outlawed...

CA: AR-15 Rifles for School Police

California Demo-Tyrants seek further infringements on semi-auto rifles for citizens, but approve Colt AR 6940 rifles with standard capacity ammunition magazines for school Police in Fontana. Elitism prevails in the most anti-firearms state of the union. Fear and loathing in California continues...(S9)

Board members Leticia Garcia and Sophia Green were outraged when they learned from community members that the district's police chief had ordered 14 semi-automatic rifles without board approval.
The total purchase price for the rifles, cases for each one, ammunition, a vault to keep them in and a light for each one was $19,286, said Billy Green, the district's police chief, during a detailed and lengthy presentation to the board... Fontana Police Chief Rod Jones, stressed the rifle's inherent accuracy advantage over a handgun as a reason they would be a must for police responding to an active shooter situation in a school...

America's Rifle: Rise Of The AR-15

*CAR-15 Vietnam Era*
Excellent short course on the rifle, still a few gaffes here and there  but overall gets the job done with less bias than the usual suspects. Kudos to Dan Haar for making the effort.  One of my personal favorite historians, Prof. Richard Slotkin is quoted here also, a pleasant surprise -  (S9)
---

It was 50 years ago, in 1963, that Colt Firearms sought and later got federal permission to modify its automatic AR-15 for sale to civilians as a semi-automatic rifle. Since then, especially with an explosion in the last 10 years, the weapon has gained popularity in a sweep of events that reads like a cultural history of the last half-century — because that's what it is.The rifle first became familiar during the Vietnam War, through grainy, televised images of the M-16 (the military version of the AR-15) in the jungles of Southeast Asia. That was followed by a string of high-profile incidents and movies such as "Rambo" in the 1980s; an end to imports of the Uzi and the AK-47 in 1989 and a partial federal ban on semi-automatic firearms in 1994; the wars inIraq and Afghanistan, with returning servicemen eager to have their own versions of the rifles they carried; the rise of realistic video games and a target-shooting sport called "three-gun competition"; and, finally, the election of President Barack Obama, coinciding with an anti-government movement of gun-rights advocates convinced they must be ready to defend themselves.
Those cultural tides raised the AR-15's popularity, as did gun control debates. The greater the threat to its existence, the more the gun sold...  the AR-15 is heir to a tradition of popular guns first designed for military use, icons like the Winchester 1872 and the Colt Peacemaker...And, more deeply, it's part of a history of firepower in the hands of American citizens, said Richard Slotkin, a cultural historian and retired Wesleyan University professor of American studies.
The tradition stems from the nation's foundation on individual freedom and from the expectation that violence will happen — sometimes justified, sometimes not. "In a sense it goes back to the handgun," Slotkin said. "We lived in a violent society for a long time." Between the Civil War and the New Deal, Slotkin said, we saw the development of automatic weapons and vast production of firearms at a time when there was no gun control..."I bought it because I was comfortable with it," said Fields, who founded and runs the King 33 firearms training center in Southington. That natural transition is especially true of veterans with longer years of service, he said, and they are the core of a new breed of target shooters at the ranges...And at the center of it all is the AR-15 itself, which is as much a product of technology and innovation as culture and marketing. "Semi-automatics have been around since the turn of the 19th century,"...The AR-15, "is an extremely competent package,,,nothing evil — it's just a firearm that works."

California: A reporter meets the AR-15

This one is also more neutral than the usual propaganda claptrap, possibly because her mentor was knowledgeable and she was open minded. Note that the California compliant features she mentions here are again under attack and they are looking to eliminate even these. It is clear to anyone with critical thinking skills that confiscation is the ultimate goal...(S9)
---

I was a bit apprehensive when a Napa man invited me to join him at a local range to shoot his AR-15, a firearm that could be banned under several pending legislative proposals.
He had built his own AR-15 a year ago and wanted to show me firsthand how the firearm operates and why it’s his gun of choice in shooting competitions. Having only read about the controversial rifle, I quickly took him up on the offer...Jeff handed me one bullet and told me how to release the gun’s magazine, which, per California law, can be dropped only by pressing a button using a tool or a pointed bullet. His AR-15 is compatible only with magazines holding 10 rounds or less, also in accordance with California law...The gun’s rugged, militaristic-looking exterior had me expecting an experience more like a shotgun than a pellet gun. I’d built up the impact so much in my mind that when it came to pulling the trigger, I was a bit underwhelmed. I — and many others, I suspect — incorrectly thought “AR” is short for “assault rifle.” I was informed at the range, and later confirmed through some research, that the name is actually derived from ArmaLite Rifle, the company that originally built the gun before selling the design to Colt. I’d pictured something that with one press of the trigger would spray bullets across the horizon. Because the AR-15 is a semi-automatic, the trigger must be pulled with each shot...

Video - "The AR-15: Firearms Facts" (WTNH News 8)

*Colt AR-15 Semi auto Only*
Not perfect by any means, but closer to the facts than the usual blatantly biased media anti-gun mind control propaganda. (For example, the Armalite was designed long before Colt was given the Contract to build the M-16 version which served in Vietnam). A tip of the hat to WTNH News 8 for at least giving it a try! - (S9)
---

News 8 asked the CEO of Colt Manufacturing, which is based in Connecticut, to show us the AR-15 design and we asked them to stick to just the facts.
The most common mistake is the name. What does the AR stand for?
"Assault rifle," said one man.
"Automatic rifle," said another.
"First off, it's not an assault rifle. It's the AR, means armalite. We call it the modern sporting rifle because these guns are all used legitimately every day for sporting purposes," said Michael Guerra of Colt Firearms.
The armalight platform was designed back in the Vietnam era as the M-16, which is a true assault rifle, a military grade machine gun that is fully automatic...they are not fully automatic firearms. These are replicas or copies of the military grade which are fully automatic...Colt says what makes the AR-15 so scary looking to some people are the cosmetics and there is a reason the military style is so popular...because many of our servicemen and women as well as ex law enforcement are buying the rifle...

Video: Mag/Semi-Auto Bans Debunked By Sheriff - Proves Confiscation is the ultimate goal

The use of logic and proof, as done here, will of course be downplayed, ridiculed and hidden from public consumption by the forces of tyranny in government and their media running-dogs, this is expected. For the open-minded critical thinker, this video is useful, so direct it to your associates that you determine may learn and benefit from it. We all must be thankful there are still Sheriffs who are true "Peace Officers" and stand up for the rights of citizens over the lies of political tyrants and stand against their law-abiding population being oppressed by them!..Yes, we are, again, being evaluated in the framework of criminal misuse of firearms, possibly the enemy's favorite smear tactic...We are not criminals, until they sign off on unconstitutional laws/bans that means jail time for us: Then the game changes..Sic Semper Parabellum, my friends!....(S9)
