Remember that video? We featured Democrat candidate Jason Kander (above) and his gun video some weeks ago and it seems his video is working.
In the fight for control of the US Senate, the gun-rights-supporting state of Missouri was widely expected to re-elect a seasoned Republican. Then the Democrat candidate, Jason Kander, demonstrated in a campaign commercial that he could assemble an assault rifle in 30 seconds while wearing a blindfold.
Now the race, pitting him against the incumbent Republican, Roy Blunt, is too close to call and with it the broader fight for control of the Senate.
With two weeks to go until the elections, Mr Kander’s dexterity with a rifle could yet tilt the balance of power in Washington. Read more »
John Key is cunning. In announcing a US ship visit he has all the hard left now distracted fighting battles from the 1980s.
For decades we’ve had ship visits from plenty of other countries, like Vietnam and China, but never from the US. Every time it is brought up the old hippies get exercised, but they never say a word about China navy sending ships here.
That is all about to change.

You know how we have joked on here about the lycra force field protecting cyclists or, as we more humorously call them, road maggots? Well, it looks like the Swedish police have taken our humour seriously and decided to protect Swedish women with rubber wristbands emblazoned with the words “don’t touch me.” This news story is so bad you would assume that it was satire but, unfortunately, it isn’t. This is a serious police initiative to try to cut down on the many sexual assaults in Sweden. I can’t help but wonder if the words “don’t touch me” are in Swedish or in Arabic. Either way, the only way they would be effective at stopping a sexual assault would be if they were used like a docking ring on the assailant.
Sweden’s police chief unveiled the force’s latest weapon in the fight against sexual assault: wristbands reading “Don’t touch me”.
Barack Obama has sold more guns than any other person in history. His continued attacks against the Second Amendment mean that people seek to get in before he tries to ban them.
The good news is that his time is almost at an end; the bad news for citizens is that Hillary Clinton will continue and escalate his attacks.
Gun sales are on a pace to break last year’s record of more than 23 million, a boon to the U.S. industry and gun stores thanks to election-year worries about gun control and recent terror attacks, according to government figures and experts.
Under Obama, background checks for guns reached 141.4 million through the end of May, amounting to sales of about 52,600 a day, according to the FBI. Last year, the FBI conducted more than 23 million background checks, which are generally used to figure sales of new and used weapons.
Domestically, manufacturers have reported producing about 21,000 guns a day, or more than 46 million in Obama’s first six years in office.
And should Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton continue to best Republican Donald Trump in the polls, sales could hit new highs, according to industry experts. Read more »
