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 »

The world’s best gun salesman cracks another record

Obama83

Barack Obama is the world’s best gun salesman and he has had another cracker month breaking yet another record.

American Rifleman reports:

Black Friday now holds the record for the highest volume of inquires processed in a single day by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), and continues the phenomenal gun-sales pace of 2015.    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 »

No suprises here: NRA more popular than Democrats

Truth Revolt reports:

The Democrats’ attempt to demonize America’s most prominent gun rights group doesn’t seem to be working. It apparently is vastly more popular than even the Dems’ two most prominent figures.

According to a new Gallup Poll, 58 percent of Americans surveyed said they have a favorable view of the National Rifle Association, while 35 percent said they have an unfavorable view, says Fox News.

Compare this to recent approval ratings for President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who recently announced that she would support tougher gun laws if elected President.

According to a Gallup Poll between Oct.19-21, just under 50 percent approve of Obama’s job performance, while 45 percent disapprove. Meanwhile, in an NBC/Wall Street Journalsurvey of Americans taken Oct. 15-18, 39 percent of those surveyed had a favorable view of Clinton, compared to 48 percent with an unfavorable view.   Read more »

Obama is the best gun sales man in the world, gun manufacturing up 140% under his watch

President Barack Obama is a boon to the gun industry.

Ever since he became president gun companies have been experiencing massive sales growth which in turn has lead to increased manufacturing.

Gun production has more than doubled over the course of the Obama administration, according to a new report from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The manufacturing boom has come in the face of the president’s push to expand background checks and place new restrictions on guns in the wake of high-profile shootings like the recent mass-killing in Charleston, S.C., and the 2012 massacre at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school.

The numbers paint a picture of gun owners who are concerned about new restrictions on their Second Amendment rights, activists say.

“The ATF report confirms what we already know, that Barack Obama deserves the ‘Gun Salesman of the Decade’ award,” said Erich Pratt, spokesman for the Gun Owners of America. “People have been rushing to buy firearms because they’re afraid that Obama will take away their Second Amendment rights.”

The ATF’s annual firearms commerce report tracks the number of guns manufactured in the United States, which provides an indication of gun sales around the country. Read more »

Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown lobby group gets nailed by NRA in Nevada

I don’t know why people mess with the NRA. They are probably the best political lobbying and direct action group in the world.  You take them on at your peril.

Michael Bloomberg is currently expending millions trying to do just that, taking the NRA on at their own game…and losing. He clearly has much to learn.

His latest defeat is in Nevada where Everytown campaigned heavily against pro-gun law changes. The NRA smashed them.

Say goodbye to handgun registration in and around Las Vegas, Nevada. On Monday, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed Senate Bill 175, abolishing Clark County’s “blue card” handgun registration system while ushering in a host of other pro-gun changes to state law.   Read more »

The NRA should just give Obama a life membership

Barack Obama is the world’s greatest gun salesman, it is getting beyond a joke now.

Breitbart reports on the surge of concealed carry permits:

Concealed carry permit applications are surging in states like North Carolina, as they have been surging nationally under Obama, “amid safety fears.”

For example, in North Carolina’s Buncombe County, the number of permits issued in 2014 were up “101 percent” from 2010.  And this county-level jump is in line with a national jump under Obama, whereby the number of concealed carry permit holders rose “136 percent” across the United States between 1999 and 2014.

According to the Citizen-Times, the reasons behind the surge in NC are based on both politics and safety. While Republicans like state Representative Jacqueline Schaffer (Dist. 105) are pushing to lessen the restrictions on law-abiding gun owners in NC, Democrats keep fighting back, pressing to keep as much gun control in place as possible.   Read more »

Chris Christie’s presidential hopes are dead

Chris Christie’s presidential hopes are stuffed, there is little chance he will gain the Republican nomination after moving to introduce tougher gun control laws.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s (R) administration is proposing more gun control in the form of “security requirements” for firearm retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers–and employees of the same–in the state.

The proposals originated with the State Police and are the result of “several thefts and lapses in oversight…that led to at least one death” during the past 10 years.   Read more »

Never mess with the NRA

NRA-Bumper-Sticker-2

The NRA is simply the best campaigning organisation in the world.

I joined the NRA for two reasons, first because they protect firearms owners, and secondly because I wanted to see how they campaign.

And when I say they are the best I mean it. They recently scored a more than 91% success rate in the mid-term elections in the US.

The biggest winner from the 2014-midterm elections is the NRA, which scored an astounding 91.2 percent win rate, according to the NRA.  Read more »

What to do about the teacher unions?

The teacher unions are kicking up a fuss, just days after the election, claiming John key doesn’t have a mandate.

What can be done about these dinosaurs?

Well we could follow what is happening in California. Where the teacher unions are being forced with the removal of their right to deduct union dues from the payroll.

The worst union in America is contemplating its worst nightmare—a time when state law no longer compels California’s teachers to pay it for the privilege of working at a public school. According to a 23-page PowerPoint presentation unearthed by union watchdog Mike Antonucci, California Teachers Association officials are taking seriously the idea that a raft of pending litigation could put an end to mandatory union dues in the Golden State, and they’re exhorting local union leaders to rise to the challenge. The presentation’s title is fitting: “Not if, but when: Living in a world without Fair Share.”

“Fair share” in this context refers to the union’s current legal right to collect dues from every public school teacher in the state, whether they join the union or don’t. But a world without compulsory dues isn’t hard to imagine—it’s already the reality in 24 right-to-work states, including Florida, Indiana, and Michigan, home to the still-powerful Michigan Education Association. The CTA presentation offers a candid assessment of emerging legal “attacks” in the wake of Harris v. Quinn, in which the Supreme Court this year ruled that the First Amendment forbids the state of Illinois to force part-time home health-care workers to pay collective-bargaining fees. The high court is likely to take up Friedrichs v. CTA, a much wider-ranging lawsuit now pending before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals alleging that compulsory dues to public-employee unions are flatly unconstitutional.
