For his last year in office Obama is going to try to sell even more guns

The World’s Greatest Gun Salesman is going to go for the record…his own record in his final year in power.

President Obama said Friday that he would meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Monday “to discuss our options” on executive action for stricter gun regulation.

The president said in his weekly radio address that his New Year’s resolution is “to move forward on our unfinished business as much as I can.” He asked citizens to help him fight an “epidemic of gun violence” and a “gun lobby [that] is loud and well organized.”

“I get too many letters from parents and teachers and kids to sit around and do nothing,” Obama said. “I get letters from responsible gun owners who grieve with us every time these tragedies happen.”   Read more »

Bob Harvey is an idiot

Bob Harvey, just back from troughing it up in Paris at our expense, has decided to start lobbying for tougher gun laws.

New Zealand needs tighter controls on gun ownership to prevent mass shootings like the Paris terror attacks, a former West Auckland mayor says.

Sir Bob Harvey, who was mayor of Waitakere City from 1992 to 2010, believes gun violence will “come like a bloody avalanche” to New Zealand if the Government doesn’t do more to control who can own firearms.

He was recently in Paris to attend the UN climate talks and was “deeply, deeply traumatised” by the memorials to the victims of the November attacks.

“The reality of it, to be there, just shatters you,” he said. “You think, how far away are we from this?”

Yeah, because banning toy guns will stop murder

Only the most slow-witted politician could ever think that banning toy guns is going to reduce gun crime.

It appears that New York has a good amount of slow-witted politicians.

Three dozen online retailers will no longer be able to sell realistic-looking toy guns in New York, according to PressConnects.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman reached a settlement this week with 30 online toy gun retailers who sell their products through Amazon.com. Through Amazon, those retailers sold over 5,000 “imitation weapons” – toy guns that look real – in New York that are illegal because they did not meet state safety standards.

In August, Schneiderman had announced an agreement with Amazon.com, Kmart, Sears, Wal-Mart and California-based ACTA for them to stop selling imitation toy guns. They also had to pay a $300,000 fine.   Read more »

Amusing Rant from a peace loving liberal

There are those of us who use guns and rifles and there are those of us who don’t. Then there are those who oppose anyone having the right to own or sell guns and rifles. There was an amusing exchange recently on facebook between a gunsmith and someone’ who considers themselves to be a liberal peace lover, against people making and owning guns and rifles. The amusing part is how, in the exchange, only one of them remains calm while the other resorts to violence.

Killer High heels just took on a brand new meaning

Avital Zeisler, creator of the ‘Soteria Method’

Have you ever heard the phrase ‘Killer High heels’? The term used to only have two meanings but now it has three. The first meaning was that wearing stiletto heels was really hard on your calf muscles. The second meaning was similar to the description of a handsome man as a ‘Lady killer,’ and is a reference to the shoes making the woman look sexy. The new and third meaning is much more literal.

Avital Zeisler, a 26-year-old Israeli, has developed a unique martial art that is taking the United States by storm: self-defense using stilettos.

Slater to contact police about possible firearms charges

Some bloke called Slater is referring two hunters to the police for Arms Act breaches.

Two hunters who accidentally killed four endangered takahē during a botched pukeko cull on an Auckland island may be stripped of their gun licences.

The Department of Conservation (DOC) has completed its investigation into August’s pukeko cull on Motutapu Island which found two members of the New Zealand Deerstalkers’ Association shot the rare birds.

The takahē were killed during the organised cull to cut down the number of pukeko on the island.

A detailed forensic investigation, including analysis of pellets found in the birds, confirmed the shots came from the guns of two men in the culling party, DOC’s deputy director general of operations Mike Slater said.    Read more »

What you can do when terrorists attack

 

The message from this video is do not be afraid to fight. At the end of the day a group of determined ‘ victims’ can take out a shooter by sheer force of numbers. A guy and two of his mates saved a train load of people this year simply because one man made the decision to attack the shooter and his mates backed him up.

In this video they call it lighting the spark. All it takes is one person to start it. When two armed terrorists confront a large crowd their main weapon is actually fear. In reality they are hugely outnumbered. A crowd has the power to stop them, but fear is what stops them.

 

Army’s new rifles approved [VIDEO]

The Army has released a sneak preview of the Army’s new AR platform rifle.

It looks like the configuration for the LMT CQB16 model. I’ve asked Defence, and so have TFB, but they are unwilling to tell us the precise model.

The Firearms Blog has some additional details:

Recently, the New Zealand Defence Force selected Lewis Machine & Tool Company to be the supplier of rifles to replace their aging Austrian-designed Steyr AUG bullpups. The exact model of rifle was not revealed in the press release regarding LMT’s selection, but those who speculated that it would be that company’s CQB16 model were soon proven correct. However, we have not seen the exact configuration of these rifles… Until the NZDF released the video [above]…   Read more »

NY Times uses their First Amendment rights to demand citizens have their Second Amendment rights removed

In a bizarre front page editorial the NY Times has demanded that politicians remove the Second Amendment rights of citizens.

They have claimed that the right to keep and bear arms is “a moral outrage and national disgrace”.

All decent people feel sorrow and righteous fury about the latest slaughter of innocents, in California. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are searching for motivations, including the vital question of how the murderers might have been connected to international terrorism. That is right and proper.

But motives do not matter to the dead in California, nor did they in Colorado, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut and far too many other places. The attention and anger of Americans should also be directed at the elected leaders whose job is to keep us safe but who place a higher premium on the money and political power of an industry dedicated to profiting from the unfettered spread of ever more powerful firearms.
