SNL Lampoons New Gun Bill: “Does it Help In Some Small Way? …No”

NC: Is Agenda 21 behind Common Core?

Opposition to Common Core must be based on facts, not theories. The fact that Common Core grants extraordinary power to the federal government and a handful of Washington, D.C.- based groups is a necessary and sufficient reason to oppose it. “Connect-the-dots” conspiracy theories diminish the legitimacy of that opposition and, in the long run, will only strengthen those who wish to broaden Common Core’s scope.

Common Core Study Bill Filed in North Carolina

H733 was filed in the North Carolina House of Representatives.  The bill’s purpose is to establish a committee of 20 members to study the Common Core State Standards and their impact in North Carolina.  State Representatives Larry Pittman (R-Concord), Hugh Blackwell (R-Valdese), Rob Bryan (R-Charlotte) and Michael Speciale (R-New Bern) are the primary sponsors.  If this bill passes the committee will study items such as:

Treason and 30 coins of silver


Alan Gottlieb is being given (and taking) credit for being instrumental in the Toomey-Manchin deal.

Gottlieb is a felon who managed to have his 2A restored via ATF years ago.

He has always been seen as an enemy of the Left.  They made sure his Wiki page always pointed out his past convictions.

Yet with this deal, suddenly his Wiki page has been scrubbed of his former convictions.

Am I accusing the man of selling out 2A to return to the good graces of the Establishment?

I rarely go after private citizens in my column.  Today I'm going to make an exception and the reason is that this person inserted themselves, on their own volition, into an attempt to violate every man, woman and child's fundamental right to life.  By doing so they have turned themselves into public figures and as such lose any such pretense of "privacy" in their opinion nor do they have a legitimate shield from the equally-public response by those who they offend.

I speak of Francine Wheeler, specifically, who Obama trotted out this morning like a puppet to try to press for more "gun control."
"I feel Ben's presence filling me with courage for what I have to do - for him and all the others taken from us so violently and too soon," Wheeler said in the address, which was broadcast on radio stations and streamed on the Internet.
"But that's only the start," Wheeler said. "They haven't yet passed any bills that will help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. And a lot of people are fighting to make sure they never do."
Listen up, you incompetent and defective sack of meat -- your son is dead because you are unfit to be parents.

You sat silently by while your state and our nation erected signs telling people who are criminally insane where they can find the maximum number of defenseless people to murder.

You are personally, jointly and severably responsible for the consequences.

Lumberton, TX Woman Shoots Robber/Rapist Terrorizing Residents

Via Angry Mike


 A woman in Lumberton, TX shot and stopped a robber Sunday morning before sunrise. This was not just any robber. This robber was part of a group of men who had gone on a crime spree over the past 2 weeks in Beaumont's West End and now in Lumberton. Around 3AM yesterday morning, this group of armed robbers sexually assaulted and robbed at gun point a woman in Lumberton.

After the robbery and sexual assault (at the corner of Raider Lane and Village Creek Parkway near the middle and primary schools), the group of 3 black males from Beaumont tried to attack another woman at her home on Dennis Drive in Lumberton. This time though, the woman was exercising her Second Amendment rights, and she pulled out her handgun and shot one of the criminals.

All three men were quickly apprehended soon after by the Lumberton Police Department. The man shot, Scott Allen Wills Jr, is still in the hospital, but is expected to recover. As I write the article, the Hardin County Jail says they have not booked the other two men, Malik Washington and Ariel Malveaux, so they are still in the custody of the Lumberton Police Department.

Guns are for hunting despots, Mr. Biden – not pheasants.

Via Angry Mike

Dear Joe Biden,

Not coming for our guns? The ‘Black Helicopter people’ are just paranoid? Nothing to see here – just some “reasonable” gun control coming down from on high? We shouldn’t worry about the Obama Administration “swooping down” on us?

Let me tell you something, Mr. Vice President: You’ll never be President. You’ll never be more than a joke on America, because that’s what Barack Obama does. He puts people in positions who are nothing more than lapdogs for his agenda and will do nothing more than help him ram it through. But you’re right about one thing Joe – you’re not going to be swooping down to get anyone’s guns anytime soon, because it is tyranny such as the goals of this Administration which the Founding Fathers warned us about when they wrote The Second Amendment into the Bill of Rights.

Directly after the Right to Free Speech came the Right to Bear Arms, friendo.

The Second Amendment does not compel you to purchase or own a weapon. It does not guarantee the privilege of quail hunting, nor does it bestow on us the freedom to take our sons and daughters target shooting. The Second Amendment was to provide a firewall against a government of tyrants who would otherwise subjugate us.

Word of the Day for Sunday, April 14, 2013

chuffed \chuhft\, adjective:
1. annoyed; displeased; disgruntled. 2. delighted; pleased; satisfied.
He was really chuffed about the fire as well, because Mrs Pearson from up the stairs had her washing ruined by the smoke.
-- Irvine Welsh, Marabou Stork Nightmares, 1997
Well, we can discuss that when we get there. Declan will be chuffed when I tell him, the family never usually goes to these things.
-- Cecelia Ahern, P.S. I Love You, 2007
This British term comes from the obsolete chuff meaning "chubby," used in the seventieth to nineteenth centuries. In the 1800s, chuff took on the sense of "pleased." Since the mid-1900s, chuffed has been used to mean both "pleased" or "displeased," depending upon the context.

GRNC Alert: Stop Toomey-Manchin Sellout NOW!

- Make calls to sellouts who voted for 'universal gun registration'
- Show up at Sen. Burr's district office to voice your displeasure

On Tuesday, April 16 at 10:00 AM, GRNC will be holding a demonstration at Senator Richard Burr's district office in Winston-Salem to deliver the message that his sellout by voting for S. 659 will not be tolerated, and that if he votes for the Toomey-Manchin "compromise" described below, we will work to remove him from office. As always, please "dress for the press" -- no offensive signs or clothing. Please note that firearms at demonstrations are prohibited by law. Suggested themes for signs: "Richard Burr: 2nd Amendment Sellout?" and "Burr: Vote 'NO' on Toomey-Manchin". Please RSVP with number of people attending to: Yes, it's a work day: BE THERE ANYWAY!

Burr's office is at:  2000 West 1st St.,  Suite 508,  Winston-Salem, NC 27104. BRING LOTS OF FRIENDS! It you live too far away from this office, visit other district offices, which can be found at:

Update: Vote is on Tuesday

On Thursday, both Senators Richard Burr (R) and Kay Hagan (D) sold out gun owners by voting for the "motion to proceed" which will bring "universal gun registration" bill S. 649 to the Senate floor for debate this Tuesday. Hagan has been doing her best to camouflage her stance on the issue, while Burr had previously said he would support the Rand Paul filibuster, before switching sides and voting to proceed. Burr's claims that he did so only when promised an open amendment process ring false: The most certain way to kill the bill would have been to deny it a floor vote.

'See a shrink, lose your guns'

Sen. Harry Reid's original version of S. 649 would criminalize a huge array of lawful behaviors such as loaning a gun to your mother, loaning a gun to a friend to hunt, or even leaving one at home with your spouse for more than 7 days.

The first amendment to be offered, on Tuesday, is the "compromise" worked out by Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV). Although you're being told it is "better" because it protections for gun owners, those "protections" have holes you could drive a truck through.

As is invariably the case, this "compromise" defines a process in which you lose slightly less than under the original proposal, but you still lose! Worse, the Toomey-Manchin measure described by  Gun Owners of America as "See a shrink, lose your guns" is a very real threat.

Says "US News & World Report": "Toomey and Manchin's legislation clarifies that doctors can enter mental health records into the national background check system without it being a violation of privacy laws."

Similar measure triggers confiscations in NY

Thanks to the vagueness of Title 18 of the US Code of Regulations, a single doctor's report could potentially trigger the loss of your gun rights without any type of hearing or due process. If you want to see how that works, check New York State, which recently adopted a similar proposal. As reported by Fox News and others, authorities have begun confiscating guns from lawful gun owners -- in some cases, even the wrong gun owners.

Two suspects involved in a Fayatteville, N.C., home invasion died following a gunfight with the homeowner.

After attempting an early morning home invasion, an exchange of gunfire occurred in a residence on the 7500 block of Levi Rd. at 3:30 a.m. Fayatteville police say the suspects then fled the scene.

Xavier White, 20, was found injured nearby. He was transported to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center where he later died.

Dominik Lavon Council, 25, was found dead from a gunshot wound on the side of a road nine miles from the crime scene at 5:45 a.m.

Jane Fonda tells veterans boycotting her movie 'The Butler' to 'get a life'


 When Jane Fonda was cast as former First Lady Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels’ forthcoming film “The Butler,” some Reagan fans were not pleased. Now, with the biographical due to hit theaters in October, a movement to boycott the movie is gaining some momentum.

Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and founder of the “Boycott Hanoi Jane Playing Nancy Reagan” Facebook page has been particularly vocal about the casting decision, given Fonda’s past frolicking with the enemy during the Vietnam War.

“Growing up in a military family I heard my father and uncles talk about what Jane did, so from an early age I knew about her history with the war and how upset veterans were about it. Yet it amazed me that people just turned their backs and kept supporting her exercise videos and movies. I made a commitment early on not to support her projects,” Reyes told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “Then when I heard she was going to play such a well-liked and highly respected president’s wife, it got to me. They (the filmmakers) knew by picking Jane for the part they were going to stir up some stuff. I’m not a conservative or a liberal, I’m an American. And that was a slap in the face.”

This week, Fonda had a simple message for Reyes and the page's fans.

“Get a life."

Report: Senate Democrats Blocking Resolution Honoring Thatcher

Senate Democrats are holding up a resolution to honor former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who died on Monday at age 87, a Heritage Foundation affiliate reports.

The resolution was to pass late Wednesday in the Democratic-controlled upper chamber, said Katherine Rosario of Heritage Action for America.

The group is a sister organization of the Heritage Foundation.

Meanwhile, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution honoring Thatcher, The Daily Mail reports. It was introduced by Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia.

The tribute cited Thatcher’s “life-long commitment to advancing freedom, liberty, and democracy and for her friendship to the United States,” according to The Daily Mail.

“To refuse to honor a woman of such great historical and political significance, who was deeply loyal to the United States, is petty and shameful,” Rosario said in her Heritage blog post.

DoD Issues Instructions on Military Support of Civilian Law Enforcement

Via ojibwa

 The Department of Defense has issued an instruction clarifying the rules for the involvement of military forces in civilian law enforcement.  The instruction establishes “DoD policy, assigns responsibilities, and provides procedures for DoD support to Federal, State, tribal, and local civilian law enforcement agencies, including responses to civil disturbances within the United States.”-------

------- Though the Posse Comitatus Act is the primary restriction on direct DoD involvement in law enforcement functions, it does not prevent military personnel from participating in circumstances “authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress.”  This includes circumstances involving “insurrection, domestic violence, or conspiracy that hinders the execution of State or Federal law” as well as actions “taken under express statutory authority.”  The DoD’s instruction includes a list of more than a dozen “laws that permit direct DoD participation in civilian law enforcement” including many obscure statutes that are more than a hundred years old.  For example, a law passed in 1882 and codified under 16 USC § 593 allows for the President to use land and naval forces to “prevent the felling, cutting down, or other destruction of the timber of the United States in Florida.”  Likewise, the Guano Islands Act of 1856 enables the President to use land and naval forces to protect the rights of a discoverer of an island covered by the Act.

Carolina Conservative Wary of Federal Aid to Schools


Federal aid to education had its beginnings in post-WW2 bills to assist local schools dealing with the increase of students caused by nearby military bases, and this spurred a long-range policy of general aid to schools throughout the country followed by federal interference and control.  The  United States Constitution delegates no authority to the federal agent with regard to education.
Bernhard Thuersam, Director
Cape Fear Historical Institute
"Documenting Cape Fear People, Places and History"

Carolina Conservative Wary of Federal Aid to Schools:

“Although Congress adjourned in 1950 without enacting a comprehensive aid program, [North Carolina Congressman Graham A.] Barden remained convinced that the public school system in most States were in great need of assistance….However, he was still insistent that the “Federal government must not have anything to do with the running of the schools” and that “tax money should go for public schools only.” While announcing his intention to continue work for Federal aid, he could not compromise on these two points.

Representative Jacob Javits questioned whether Federal funds could be used legally by segregated public schools. Barden, who was floor manager for the [H.R.5411] bill, heatedly replied that the question of segregated schools in the Carolinas was not the business of the congressman from New York. 

All the bill did, Barden asserted, was to set up a system “that could operate without friction in the State in which it was located and become an integral part of the State, and not be part of any of these crusading programs that some people are so anxious to establish in the Country.” He suspected that Javits was simply creating dissension with the aim of settling nothing. 

The President said that the purpose of Barden’s bill was meritorious, but he objected to the provision requiring schools to conform to State laws ….Baden was disappointed by Truman’s action because he believed that without the section to which the President objected, the bill’s passage would have been impossible. 

Far more disturbing to the congressman than Republican control of Congress was the opinion of Chief Justice Earl Warren in Brown v. Board of Education….[and] many Southerners began to have second thoughts about Federal aid programs of all types.  The decision probably accounted for Barden’s sudden disinterest in Federal aid. Immediately following the decision he wrote: 

“The decision came as such a shock to us that as yet we aren’t able to evaluate all of its far-flung ramifications….I believe the decision was unwise, inappropriate and ill-timed, and it appears that political considerations were a controlling influence on the decree.”

With the Court’s decisions, knowing that Federal interference was bound to follow, he turned against the crusade for an aid program.  He had always been opposed to Federal control, and perhaps as early as 1954 he clearly saw that Federal money would be the chief means of bringing….involvement by the Federal government in operation of the schools in the Southern States. 

Because the Brown case dealt with racial matters, a lot of superficial analysts glibly checked off Barden’s opposition to Federal aid as being racially motivated. Their judgment was unsound. If the Brown case had dealt with something such as curriculum content, textbook selection or the like, his opposition would have been the same.  What turned him off was not race, but the firm conviction that with Federal dollars came Federal regulators to interfere with the operation of the local schools.”

Seattle is under Federal control

Via email from Montana Pike Hunter:


I'm writing to you today to bring light to share with you some curious things I noticed this weekend.  In order to put them into perspective, I must let you know a little about myself.  I was born in Seattle Washington and moved to Missoula Montana in July of 2001.  I still have friends in Seattle and I go there to visit yearly.

I went last year and observed a lot of peculiar infrastructure put in place, but nothing more noteworthy than the extremely sophisticated camera systems on the state borders.  This year I witnessed significantly more, a deterioration into an Orwellian setting that I never could have imagined.

Seattle is now informally under Federal Control.  Whether the local police and sheriff's departments know it or not, they are being groomed to relinquish control to the Department of Homeland Security, it would appear that vast amounts of resources are being placed inside the city on standby.  I would have gladly taken more pictures, but given the circumstances, which I will explain later, I was unable to.

On Background Checks, The New Mantra

Via avordvet


 John Lott writes the definitive piece on Fact vs. Fiction on  Background Checks and the Gun Control Debate.  A couple of Fun Facts should you be debating an anti-gun type:

Furthermore, there is no real scientific evidence among criminologists and economists that background checks actually reduce crime. In fact, a 2004 National Academy of Sciences panel concluded that the Brady background checks didn't reduce any type of violent crime. Nor have other later studies found a beneficial effect.
The number of criminals stopped by the checks is also quite small. In 2010, there were over 76,000 initial denials, but only 44 of those were deemed worthy for prosecution and only 13 individuals were convicted.(pdf here) Even those 13 cases don’t tend to be the “dangerous” criminals Obama claims are being stopped.

Glock vs. Smith & Wesson — It comes down to the trigger

 Glock 23 - cwj1981 - glock23-40-7.jpg

 I spare no expense in making sure my duty belt contains the best equipment allowed by my agency’s policy. I work in an unforgiving environment where calling a ‘time out’ isn’t an option. It’s not uncommon for policies to be out of date, or to mandate equipment purchased by the agency, or to reflect the manufacturer’s recommendations. Policies can be restrictive but it’s generally to ensure consistency in the function and performance of the equipment and to achieve uniformity amongst officers. There are three pieces of equipment that matter more to me than anything else on my belt:
 my firearm, my holster and magazine pouch and my knife.

The most important piece of equipment on any police officer’s duty belt is the one piece they will hopefully never have to use, their firearm. Years ago, our policy changed for the better. It allowed officers to purchase and carry 40-caliber Glock firearm models. I, like most of my coworkers, purchased the Glock because it was a huge improvement from the outdated Smith & Wesson 4046s that we were carrying at that time. Once the lifespan of the model 4046 firearms came to an end, our department purchased the M&P. I think they purchased the M&P in order to give officers an additional option. The M&P is similar in many ways to the Glock and since it was free, I had one issued to me. I really liked the M&P when I shot it but there was one difference I noted between the two guns … the reset. The trigger reset in the M&P is not as distinct as the Glock. Having mastered the reset on the Glock, I prefer it. There is a fix for the Smith & Wesson trigger, that mimics the Glock, but our policy doesn’t allow us to make internal modifications to duty firearms.
