Crazy!: NRA gets of a leaked DOJ memo that says Outlaw and Confiscate All Guns…

I will not link to Infowars directly, because of some stupid ad that pops up over there. Anyhow, this is frightening thing; that PDF is downloaded here. (Requires Adobe acrobat reader)

I have said this before, and I will say it again: Elections matter and voting for someone, who does not hold your values is not a smart idea. You libertarians that voted for this President; this is on you all. Nothing like this would have ever been considered, if John McCain or Mitt Romney would have been elected.  McCain and Romney would have not been perfect; even for a paleoconservative like me — but it would have been a good deal better than this liberal we have in there now.

Again, elections matter — this is proof of that.

The Story:

The National Rifle Association has obtained a Department of Justice memo calling for national gun registration and confiscation. The nine page “cursory summary” on current gun control initiatives was not officially released by the Obama administration.

The DOJ memo (downloadable here as a PDF) states the administration “believes that a gun ban will not work without mandatory gun confiscation,” according to the NRA, and thinks universal background checks “won’t work without requiring national gun registration.” Obama has yet to publicly support national registration or firearms confiscation, although the memo reveals his administration is moving in that direction.

The memo stands in stark contrast to the administration’s public stance on so-called gun control. White House spokesman Jay Carney said last month that laws proposed by Obama would not “take away a gun from a single law-abiding American.”

This is stupid and does nothing for the second amendment cause

I’m with SayUncle on this one here; this is just plain stupid:

It would be an understatement to say that the tactics of gun rights activists have been backfiring of late. The showdown has taken place foremost in Texas, where in recent months groups such as Open Carry Texas have conducted provocative demonstrations in which armed men exercise their right under state law to carry semi-automatic rilfes in public. No fewer than five national food and beverage chains have now told them to get rid of their guns or get lost, including Starbucks, Wendy’s, Applebees, Jack In The Box, and Chipotle.

And now Chili’s and Sonic have effectively joined the list: Two videos posted on YouTube on May 19 by the San Antonio chapter of Open Carry Texas—since removed from public view but obtained by Mother Jones—show its armed members being refused service at both restaurants. The two companies have not made official statements on open carry but have since indicated that they are reviewing their policies. From the nervous and angry reactions of some patrons to comments from some of the gun activists themselves, it’s not difficult to see why these spectacles haven’t been winning many people over.

“I just wish I had my kids in there when that one dumb chick come up and started rattin’ her mouth,” said one of the gun activists.

When a young woman approaches the group in Chili’s and expresses her dismay, a guy with an assault rifle strapped across his back offers her a flier. “Um actually, there’s children here,” she replies, “and you’re a dumbass.” As she walks away one member of the group comments mockingly, “Yes, I’m a dumbass,” and then says of her, “must be Moms Demand Action,” referring to the national gun-reform group.

Again, I am all for the second amendment. I am also for being able to carry a gun; in public, within the confines of the law. However, carrying an AR-15 or any other sort of a assault rifle into a public place does nothing more than cause panic and makes law-abiding gun owners look like idiots.

The idea is to convince the public that not everyone who carries a gun is some sort of mental unstable whack-jobs. This here, does nothing to further that cause; in fact, it does the opposite.

Just my opinion.

Update: Julie in Pa gives her take on it, and it is spot on.

 

Joe the Plumber gets it right

I hate to say it, but he is right:

I’m not talking here about the three tragic murders Rodger committed by stabbing before his driving and shooting spree; I speak now only to the families of the gunshot victims in Santa Barbara:

It’s a tragedy.

I am sorry you lost your child. I myself have a son and daughter and the one thing I never want to go through, is what you are going through now. But:

As harsh as this sounds – your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.

Richard Martinez, whose son (Christopher) was among the murdered, choked back tears at a news conference, blaming politicians the next day: “The talk about gun rights. What about Chris’ right to live?” Martinez said – and much more.

There are no critical words for a grieving father. He can say whatever he wants and blame whoever he’d like – it’s okay by me. You can’t take a step in his shoes – at least I can’t.

But the words and images of Mr. Martinez blaming “the proliferation of guns”, lobbyists, politicians, etc.; will be exploited by gun-grab extremists as are all tragedies involving gun violence and the mentally ill by the anti-Second Amendment Left.

As a father, husband and a man, it is my responsibility to protect my family. I will stand up for that right vehemently. Please believe me, as a father I share your grief and I will pray for you and your family, as I do whenever I hear about senseless tragedies such as this.

I think Joe could have and should have worded it a bit nicer than that; but he does have a good point.

Update: Via Memeorandum: The Left is now having a fit about what Joe said. But of course. :roll:

 

The only person responsible for the UCSB shooting is Elliot Rodger

As I am sure you already know; some deranged nut job named Elliot Rodger opened fire in a neighborhood out in Isla Vista, California near UCSB. Basically, because he couldn’t get laid.

Well, the blame game is starting; in fact, one of the victim’s Father went on an idiotic tirade against the NRA and basically Republicans. Well, there is only one problem with that; and thanks to twitchy for pointing this out:

So, the dude was legally registered; so much for this being the NRA’s fault. In fact, the NRA has called for mental health records to be a part of a firearms background check for licenses. Which some people actually argued against; funny that. :roll:

I also see where the so-called “Men’s Rights Movement” or him being “incel” is being blamed. Please note, “incel” is the cool kid crowd’s term for involuntary celibacy or in layman’s terms; couldn’t get laid in a monkey whore house with a bucket full of bananas! Something I know quite a bit about. Just being honest, there are not any babes beating my doors down guys. 🙁 But, you don’t see me going around shooting people, ain’t no poo tang or lack thereof, worth committing murder. 😯

Let me be clear:

People just need to stop!

The only person that is responsible for this horrible tragic event is the man who pulled the trigger of that legally registered gun; and that would be Elliot Rodger and only Elliot Rodger! Anyone who blames the NRA, The media, the politicians in Washington D.C. or anyone else is missing the point. How about blaming the inept police in Santa Barbara, California who did nothing at all to follow-up, when the shooters Father spoke to the police about some of his kid’s videos on youtube?

Blaming guns for a mass shooting like this; is like blaming automobiles for auto accidents. Do we just ban all cars? How about placing the blame where it belongs; on the person who actually did it!

Just my opinion.

Update: Now a memeorandum topic.

Update #2: Oh, this is good — really good. 

 

Two White Gonzaga Students Face Possible Expulsion After Pulling Gun On Black Home Intruder

This is sick and sad; but because of the world in which we live; I might how this is going to turn out.

The Story:

The Victims – Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh

On Friday a university discipline board decided to move forward with sanctions, including possible expulsion, for using the weapons. The students will learn in the near future about their future with the school. It all happened late in the night on October 24th when roommates Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh were hanging out in their university owned apartment. 

The criminal – John Taylor

Taylor then attempted to force entry into the apartment. At that point McIntosh brandished his pistol. McIntosh has a concealed weapons permit for the gun and did not know it was in violation of policy at the time. Once Taylor saw the gun he left the property. McIntosh said Spokane Police took Taylor into custody after their report because he was wanted on a Department of Corrections warrant.

As much as I hate to say it; because the racial makeup of this incident, these two white victims are going to be the victims of a political correct society and will be charged and/or thrown out of school and their academic lives ruined. Because they dared to stand up to a black man and show him what happens, when you try to rob a white man in his own house.

Of course, I believe the University’s policy is also moronic as well. Banning guns in a university apartment is not the solution to the problem; it only creates an easy target for criminals; obviously as shown here.  However, because we live in a society that believes that gun control is the answer, due to Marxist indoctrination, these two chaps will end up have to go another university with this incident in their records. This my friends, is the great American tragedy of the ages.

Sherriff Nick Finch Acquitted

Remember Sherriff Nick Finch that I wrote about?

It appears that he has been acquitted.

The New American Reports: (H/T John Birch Society’s HQ)

Justice has been served.

Minutes after noon on Thursday, October 31, an eight-person jury acquitted Sheriff Nick Finch of both charges against him. Finch, the sheriff of Liberty County, Florida, was accused of official misconduct and falsifying records. Finch maintained that he was simply standing up for the right of the people to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment.

The jury agreed, reaching its verdict in fewer than 90 minutes. Within minutes of being found not guilty, Sheriff Finch spoke with Governor Rick Scott, who reinstated Finch within hours.

“Sheriff Nick Finch will be reinstated immediately,” said Governor Scott in a written statement. “I would like to thank the members of the jury in Liberty County for their service in this trial. I would also like to thank Interim Sheriff Buddy Money for his service to the state of Florida.”

It is ironic that Scott would thank the citizens of Liberty County for their service on the jury when it was Scott’s removal of Sheriff Finch in the first place that served to effectively disenfranchise those very citizens.

[…..]

There is an additional disturbing aspect of the case not being commented on by other news outlets. Imagine that Sheriff Finch had released a man arrested and jailed for having openly preached Christianity in a public place. Would Governor Scott have been so hasty to remove Finch from office? Why would the rights protected by the Second Amendment be subordinate to those guaranteed by the First Amendment?

The protection of each of our God-given rights is as crucial to the perpetuation of liberty as any other. Freedom and self-government are threatened just as much by deprivation of the right to keep and bear arms as by a revocation of the right to exercise religion.

Governor Scott’s persecution and prosecution of a sheriff standing up for the Second Amendment rights of citizens of his county is particularly questionable given the hostile climate that threatens the right to keep and bear arms nationally.

It’s over now, though, and all is forgiven. The fact remains that Finch suffered substantial financial setbacks as a result of his removal and at press time, it was unclear whether Sheriff Finch would receive back pay for the four months he was suspended.

A defense fund was established to help Finch defray the cost of mounting a defense. It is a shame, however, that a good man, a duly elected, liberty minded lawman, was forced into this position by a few connected men and politicians eager to lean on an outsider.

“I am so grateful for all the support from patriots all across the country,” Sheriff Finch told The New American after he was acquitted. “I am thrilled to be back to work.”

I am glad to see that the court made a good decision. I was not sure about the details; apparently the Court didn’t see where the law was broken. I trust the decision.
