Details are emerging regarding the magazine ban recently proposed by Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) as an amendment to the "Cybersecurity Act" currently being considered by the US Senate.
In many respects the proposed ban is even more draconian than the prior Clinton ban that ended in 2004. Specific features that gun owners should be aware of include:
This law was clearly drafted to punish law-abiding gun-owners and to push the armed citizenry into use of less than optimally-effective weapons for defense of themselves and their families. The Second Amendment protects arms to be used by an effective militia. Making available only obsolete and reduced-capacity weapons clearly violates this intent and must be stopped!
Where Do NC Senators Stand?
Senator Richard Burr (R-NC, ****) has been a champion of gun-rights but also is one of the original sponsors of the “Cybersecurity Act”. Now that this Act is being used as host for the parasitic magazine ban, he has clear conflicted interest in the issue. We need him to understand that failure to pass his “Cybersecurity Act” is better than approval of one with a poisonous, anti-gun amendment.
Our second US Senator, Kay Hagan (D-NC, 0-star) pays lip service to Second Amendment rights, but her actions betray her. For example, she recently failed to sign onto a pledge to vote against ratification of the UN Small Arms Treaty that would have exposed our rights to international infringement. She has an opportunity now to redeem herself by refusing to support this anti-freedom amendment.
Well such has occurred in Meadville, PN. Jade N. Olmstead, 18 and her new “lover” Ashley M. Barber brutally beat and strangled Olmstead’s former girlfriend, Brandy M. Stevens, 20, and then buried her alive. This is more than just a killing. It was torture.
Go Erie reports,
Olmstead greeted Stevens and lured her into the woods near the home that she shared with Barber and Barber’s parents in Wayne Township, to see a crude fort that she and Ashley Barber were building. Barber was hiding there. At the fort, the two women began punching and kicking Stevens and stuffed a “Saw” cap into her mouth to stop her pleading for her life and screaming.
“They said they were freaking out from her screams,” Mallory said.
Stevens was knocked to the ground by the two women. Barber put a rope around her neck and strangled her while Olmstead alternately hit her in the head with a shovel and helped to choke her, Mallory said.
Barber also repeatedly pounded Stevens’ head against a stump and told police that a bruise on her own forehead came from head-butting Stevens’ besides.
“She was on the victim’s back with her knee in her spine, pulling her head back with the rope … and letting it hit the stump,” Mallory said.
The two women rolled Stevens into a shallow grave that they had prepared for her at the fort. When they saw that she was still breathing, they threw a large rock onto her face and poured water into her mouth and nose.
“She said that her worst fear was being buried alive,” Mallory said of Barber. “She was trying to kill her.”
The results of an autopsy by Erie County forensic pathologist Eric Vey showed that Stevens suffocated on dirt, police Trooper Phillip Shaffer testified.
Now, I ask you, why is Barack Obama not making this national news like he did the Trayvon Martin case? In fact, why is this not covered at all in the major media?

...........the Chick Fil-A in Hendersonville, NC
There was an enormous crowd with lines winding inside and going outside past the back end of the building and into the back parking lot. The Auto line extended onto U.S. 64, and traffic was backed up almost to I-26 on the west side. Parking space was scarce and spilled over into the parking lot of the shopping center almost to Wal-Mart. According to other people who had tried to eat there during the day, these crowded conditions began before 11 am. The expected wait, if you had the time, was as about two hours or slightly more. Yet people were smiling.
One Army Vietnam Veteran of the First Air Cavalry told me he was beginning to lose hope for his country, but he felt good now and looked forward to voting in November.
