Gun Control

The world’s greatest gun salesman is a crier and a liar

Barack Obama came out and proposed a slew of anti-gun executive actions and in between bouts of tears he managed a few lies.

The Washington Post‘s Fact Checker assessed President Obama’s claim made during his tearful speech on gun control when he said that the rules for buying a gun over the Internet is different than buying one in person.

The final score? Two Pinocchios. (That means it was “half true,” according to their scale.)

“Obama erred,” states the Post, which is a nice way of saying he lied.

Here is WaPo‘s explanation:

This is a difficult claim to assess because a lot depends on how one reads Obama’s remarks: “The problem is some gun sellers have been operating under a different set of rules. A violent felon can buy the exact same weapon over the Internet with no background check, no questions asked.”   Read more »

The world’s greatest gun salesman boosts shares in gun stocks

Obama’s cry-baby speech about gun control has resulted in…more gun sales:

President Obama’s move to tighten gun restrictions follows a string of high-profile shootings and surging sales of firearms — and some experts believe Tuesday’s executive action will only heighten demand.

Gun manufacturers have seen their stocks climb in recent days as sales pick up.

Shares of Smith & Wesson jumped 11 percent Tuesday, to $25.86, when the president unveiled his new plan for expanding background checks on gun sales, while Sturm, Ruger & Co.’s stock climbed nearly 7 percent, to $65.54.

For gun-rights groups, the numbers serve to validate a long-running joke within the industry: Obama is the gun salesman of the year.

Not just of the year…of all time!

“President Obama has single-handedly done more to promote gun ownership than anyone else,” said Erich Pratt, executive director of the Gun Owners of America.

“Gun owners are concerned, and they should be,” Pratt continued. “We see people running to gun stores to buy firearms and ammunition.

If Obama wants to ban it, they want to buy it,” he added.President Obama’s move to tighten gun restrictions follows a string of high-profile shootings and surging sales of firearms — and some experts believe Tuesday’s executive action will only heighten demand.   Read more »

Obama announces that more laws will stop criminals from breaking laws

The world’s greatest gun sales man is going to use executive actions to introduce new gun control laws.

He better get ready for a Supreme Court challenge by the NRA.

From the Oval Office Monday, President Obama, sitting alongside Attorney General Loretta Lynch, announced a new round of executive gun control actions he says are “well within my legal authority.”

The president assured that even the strictest Second Amendment-rights advocate would stand behind his proposals:

It is my strong belief that for us to get our complete arms around the problem, Congress needs to act. What I asked my team to do is to see what more we could do to strengthen our enforcement and prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands.

The good news is, is that these are not only recommendations that are well within my legal authority and the executive branch, but they’re also ones that the overwhelming majority of American people, including gun owners, support and believe in.   Read more »

A gripping true story of Socialism in action

12360033_1651480758460823_3891741608522680050_n

People forget that Hitler’s party was the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. His party was a true socialist party. It provided free healthcare,equal rights for women, employment, soup kitchens for the poor and hungry, law and order and nationalised secular education. Sunday became National Youth day and the youth were given two hours of political indoctrination every week and then were rewarded with sports for the rest of the day.It was compulsory and parents were punished if they did not send their children.

Later it became compulsory for young men and women to work in the labor corps for one year.With the mothers out working, the state took over childcare. Tax rates went up to 80% of income.Child care and education were free.High Schools were taken over by the government and agencies were created to monitor business including farmers.The State was controlling everything. Free enterprise was abolished.

Disabled adults were taken away from their families by the government on a pretext and the families were then informed that they had all died. Next came gun registration which was quickly followed by the government demanding that gun owners all surrender their guns to the state.

“By this time there was no freedom of speech. Anyone who spoke out against the government was taken away. It only took five years for Socialism to transform into Totalitarianism.

I love history because I choose to learn from it. Can you see any of the above happening right now in the West? I can see the appeal. Being looked after by the State sounds great but when you hand over control for your life to a government, you are handing over your freedom.

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?”

How many mass shootings? Why do media believe everything they read on social media?

The left wing media and bloggers have been spreading around a number, obtained from the Washington Post, of the number of mass shootings this year in the US.

There is a major problem though…the number is a lie…and it took a lefty writer from a left wing outlet, Mother Jones, to bust it open.

On Wednesday, a Washington Post article announced that “The San Bernardino shooting is the second mass shooting today and the 355th this year.” Vox, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, this newspaper and others reported similar statistics. Grim details from the church in Charleston, a college classroom in Oregon and a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado are still fresh, but you could be forgiven for wondering how you missed more than 300 other such attacks in 2015.

At Mother Jones, where I work as an editor, we have compiled an in-depth, open-source database covering more than three decades of public mass shootings. By our measure, there have been four “mass shootings” this year, including the one in San Bernardino, and at least 73 such attacks since 1982.   Read more »

Gun control will stop terrorists…we know this because the White House says so

According to the White House spokesman gun control will stop terrorists.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest called for tighter gun control in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, saying that President Barack Obama believes that if “common sense” gun controls were enacted, it could have prevented the attack.

Pressed by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy whether the president actually believes gun control would stop a terrorist plot, Earnest said making guns harder to get would be a good place to start:    Read more »

Goodyear sacks an employee for being a sporting shooter

Goodyear has a bit of a problem on their hands. One of their Australian employees has been sacked because he is a sporting shooter.

That is bad enough, but the case has now come to the attention of The Firearm Blog, one of the most respected and popular firearms blogs in the world, let alone the US.

David Waters, one of the top shooters in Australian, competes regularly in high-power shooting competitions in the USA. In 2008 he became the first non-US citizen to be awarded the Distinguished Rifleman Badge by the CMP.

A mechanical engineer by profession, he has worked for Goodyear in Australia for the past 12 years until earlier this year when he was fired.    Read more »
