Hamas are so stupid they are shelling their own people now

The usual left apologists for terrorism are up in arms because Israel is currently defending themselves against ongoing Hamas rocket attacks from Gaza.

One useful idiot even claims that for every bomb Israel drops another 10 terrorists are created. Strangely he doesn’t think any terrorists are created when Hamas sends thousands of rocket strikes deep into Israeli territory.

As is usual the UN who remain silent on Hamas terrorism are now all exercised about Israel defending itself.

Their rocket arsenal is extensive and Hamas thinks nothing of firing those rockets from schools and hospitals hoping that Israel will retaliate and civilians will be killed.

Even since Operation Protective Edge began hundreds of rockets continue to rain down on Israel.

Hamas terrorists have fired more than 540 rockets at Israel since Operation Protective Edge began on Monday, July 7 – and over 830 rockets since the beginning of 2014.

Israel apparently has to endure this and is not allowed to strike back, according to the terrorist apologists. Every time Hamas launches rockets the civilian population of Israel has just 15 seconds to seek shelter.  Read more »

Airsoft Night Ops

GUEST POST:

Airsoft is a sport that is similar to paintball, where you shoot each other with air, or electrically powered guns but that’s where the similarities stop. Airsoft is a much more tactical game, that doesn’t leave you with so many bruises that you end up being a walking pain cushion as it uses small plastic BB pellets.

This is what a Pain cushion looks like.

Bloomberg’s astroturf counter to the 5 million member NRA lies about shootings

Michael Bloomberg’s astroturf organisation, Everytown,  set up to counter the 5 million member NRA has been busted telling whopper sized lies about school shootings. The anti-gun group created a list of 74 supposed school shootings in the last 18 months and pimped it to a compliant media who spread the message. The problem is, only 15 are actually are what most people would call “school shootings”. The rest are a collection of suicides, gang activity or domestic incidents.

After the failure of his Mayors Against Illegal Guns group to sway public opinion in favor of more gun control, Michael Bloomberg announced earlier this year that he would be funneling at least $50 million to a new, “grassroots” organization now called Everytown For Gun Safety with the hope of “outmuscling” that scourge of civilized society, the National Rifle Association, and their ill-begotten political influence (because of, you know, their five million official members and millions more sympathizers). In what is only Everytown’s latestdisplay of choosing deliberate exaggerations, lies, and scare tactics over honest conversation, the group recently updated their running list claiming that there have now been at least 74 school shootings just since the massacre at Newtown in December of 2012, which a HuffPo editor then helpfully mapped out:

Every season they come for your guns

The Herald on Sunday has a rather poorly researched article about an apparent need to urgently review gun laws.

The call comes from a hippy academic who is the chairman of Peace and Conflict Studies at Otago University. Why is Otago University has developed a reputation for politically active wombles making trouble from their state funded trough?

In any case this hippy tool has exclaimed that we need tighter gun control….apparently.

A string of hunting accidents is proof New Zealand’s firearms laws need to be reviewed, a leading gun control advocate says.

In the past 10 years, 19 people have died and 57 have been injured by firearms.

A 44-year-old duck hunter suffered serious injuries after being shot in the elbow last Saturday. Another man, also 44, has been charged with careless use of a firearm causing injury and released on bail.

Kevin Clements, chairman of Peace and Conflict Studies at Otago University, said there were 1.1 million guns in the country and gun laws needed “urgent” review.

Currently, licensed gun-owners can provide firearms to people with no licence or training, so long as they are supervised. There is no limit to the number of firearms a licensed holder can own.

Hillary Clinton wants to sell more guns

Hillary Clinton is buying a fight with the NRA…which means she will lose…and along the way make a challenge to beat Barack Obama as the world’s greatest gun salesperson of all time.

In a speech Tuesday, Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows by calling for increased restrictions on carrying firearms in public.

It feels like the 1990s again with Monica Lewinsky in the news and a Clinton calling for increased gun control measures.

In a speech Tuesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decried the current wave of state laws allowing citizens to freely carry firearms in public places. While speaking at the National Conference on Behaviorial Health outside Washington, D.C., Clinton said “I think again we’re way out of balance [in regulating firearms]. We’ve got to rein in what has become almost an article of faith that almost anybody can have a gun anywhere at any time. And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.” The former New York senator and potential 2016 presidential candidate made the statement in reference to a question about the role of firearms in suicides.

Clinton worried that the ability of gun owners to freely carry weapons in public would lead to an increase in shootings in places like movie theaters over disputes as mundane as someone talking loudly on a cell phone. In her opinion, “That’s what happens in the countries I’ve visited where there is no rule of law and no self-control and that is something that we cannot just let go without paying attention.” Read more »

Not just ducks are getting shot at

Careful readers will know that Team Whaleoil is doing their bit to keep the duck numbers down this weekend, but it appears it isn’t just ducks getting shot

The duck shooting season has claimed its first hunting injury.

Police and ambulance were notified just before 11.30am of a 44-year-old man, hunting in an area north of Masterton, being hit by pellets from the gun of someone else in his hunting party.

A central police communications spokesman said the man had hurt his elbow in the incident. “It looks like one of the people in the group, the blast of a shotgun has connected with the side of his elbow.”

The caller who alerted emergency services to the incident said it was an accident.

It was not clear how far away the two men were, “but if you take precautions you shouldn’t accidentally shoot anyone”, the spokesman said.

If you can’t see the difference between a duck and a hunter, you have no business carrying a gun around.

Wellington Free Ambulance spokesman Daniel Paul said the injury was “pretty serious.”

The man was being flown to Wellington Regional Hospital by helicopter. He was hunting in Bideford, he said.

Nicole McKee, Firearms & Hunter safety programme manager at the Mountain Safety Council (MSC), said shooters had to be vigilant about safety precautions.

“Duck hunters need to ensure that their firing zone is always checked before they pull the trigger.

“They need to look at the area between them and their target, as well as beyond their target.”

I should have a pic or two of my weekend later.

Why the NRA keeps on winning

The NRA never loses a fight…it is a brave politician who wants to go against them.

For a start they usually rinse you and secondly it will cost them a great deal of hooter.

National Review’s Jim Geraghty posed a pointed question from the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting this weekend: Why do gun-rights supporters win when other conservative causes lose?

And in fact over the past 20 years, gun advocates have scored an astounding string of successes:

  • All 50 states now issue concealed-carry permits to allow approved gun owners to carry firearms into public places. In many states, permit holders may carry guns even into bars and non-TSA-patrolled areas of airports.
  • In 2008, gun advocates persuaded the Supreme Court to overrule a century of precedent and redefine the Second Amendment not as a right of state governments to form militias but as an individual right to acquire private firearms.
  • Gun advocates persuaded Congress in 2004 to let lapse the Clinton-era ban on assault rifles. In the mid-1990s, they voted to halt government research into the public-health effects of gun ownership when that research yielded uncongenial evidence.
  • No crime or atrocity, not even the massacre of children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, has checked the strong trend of U.S. public policy to make ever more lethal weapons ever more easily available to ever more people, including people with histories of domestic violence.

So congratulations to the NRA: mission accomplished!

Even more impressive, this string of victories was scored as gun ownership in America tumbled. Only about one-third of American households now own a gun, compared to about one-half in 1973. Much of this decline can be traced to the fading of hunting as an American pastime. Only about 6 percent of Americans hunt even once in a year. That’s just slightly more than the number who attended a ballet performance: 3.9 percent.

Obama is the greatest gun salesman of all time

Barack Obama continues to hold the title of the greatest gun salesman of all time as gun sales surge to new highs.

A record surge in recent firearms production and transactions have swamped the federal government’s automated registration system for select weapons, including machine guns.

In a notice earlier this month to the firearms industry, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said it was temporarily suspending parts of its computerized system to shore up capacity in part to process the required registration and transfer of National Firearms Act covered weapons, which also include silencers, short-barreled shotguns, short-barreled rifles and some explosive devices.   Read more »
