NC Gun Action Alert: House sends bill to conference committee

As expected, the NC House today voted against concurring with Senate changes to HB 937 ("Amend Various Firearms Laws"). The bill contains provisions for concealed carry in restaurants, assemblies of people for which admission is charged, state-controlled parking lots, educational properties (provided guns are kept in locked vehicles) and much more. If passed largely intact, it will represent the largest advance in gun rights in North Carolina history.
At issue is the repeal of North Carolina's Jim Crow-era pistol purchase permit law, which is opposed by the NC Sheriffs' Assoc. and Governor Pat McCrory. While GRNC strongly urged that the House concur with Senate strengthening of the bill, leaving the full PP repeal intact, we remain optimistic about resolution of differences because Speaker Thom Tillis' office has said that:
  1. Other aspects of the bill will not be weakened in committee and will, in fact, likely be strengthened in at least one respect;
  2. Although the PP repeal will not stay in entirety, in a radio interview Tillis has promised a compromise which will at least partially satisfy the concerns of all interested parties, including GRNC; and
  3. The bill will pass THIS YEAR.
Thanks to the stalwarts
First, GRNC wishes to thank the 18 stalwart gun rights supporters who voted for concurrence, even in the face of pressure to weaken the bill. They are: Representative(s): Bell, J.; Brawley, R.; Brody; Bumgardner; Catlin; Elmore; Faircloth; Ford; Hastings; Jones; Jordan; Millis; Pittman; Presnell; Shepard; Speciale; Stone; Torbett.
Conference committee members
We do NOT recommend beating on the following legislators who have been appointed to the conference committee, since they are generally strong Second Amendment supporters with excellent voting records. We are particularly heartened by the fact that the Senate Chair is Sen. Buck Newton, primary architect of the Senate improvements to HB 937. The conferees are:

Say No to a U.S.-EU Merger

As negotiations continue toward immersing the United States in another sovereignty-compromising trade pact, it’s hardly surprising to know that proper warnings were issued about such an agreement in The New American magazine five years ago. TNA’s May 12, 2008 feature article entitled “Transatlantic Two-Step” reported that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso met with President George W. Bush in the White House to discuss the ongoing negotiations that would tie our country with the European Union. In his statement at the close of the meeting, Mr. Bush didn’t hesitate to summarize what the three had discussed. He bluntly stated that the goal was “trans-Atlantic integration.”

The TNA article also noted that a group called the Transatlantic Policy Network (TPN) had been working “carefully, if quietly” toward economic union “since the early 1990s.” The TPN happens to be a non-governmental organization (NGO) provided legitimacy by the United Nations. Its work, according to University of Nevada economics professor Glen Atkinson, will set “the foundation for a political union.” Of course, this is no surprise because economic unions are followed by political unions just as night follows day. The steps that led to the formation of the EU prove this point.

Merger of the U.S. with the EU is the ultimate goal and that would mean an end to our nation’s independence.

As progress toward the “integration” continued, Nebraska Republican Douglas Bereuter (a member of the CFR) led the U.S. House in passage of a resolution stating that the U.S. and the EU had “common interests.” He named environmental protection, poverty reduction, combating international crime, promoting human rights, threats posed by terrorism, terrorist states, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.” The resolution was adopted by the House as far back as 2003.

Among the TPN’s “Congressional Group” formed a full decade ago could be found six senators and 49 House members. These legislators obviously placed little importance on their oath to the U.S. Constitution and the independence of our nation. This “group” included then-Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.), also a CFR member, who last year was named by Barack Obama as our nation’s secretary of defense. It's hardly unreasonable to wonder what he intends to defend. Congressional support for this dangerous entanglement remains.

The 2008 TNA article mentioned that support for the merger of the U.S. and the EU could be found among the usual internationalist-minded corporations such as Boeing, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, General Electric, IBM, Walt Disney, Wal-Mart, Nestle, UPS, and more. Think tanks and foundations backing the proposal include the CFR, Atlantic Council, Carnegie Endowment, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the European Roundtable of Industrialists. The TPN’s time schedule calls for the launching of the “transatlantic common Market” by 2015.

With all this backing, why hasn’t the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) been presented to Congress for passage? The answer is that there is resistance to such a pact and both the current and past president know this, as do a sufficient number of members of Congress. 

Congratulations are in order for all who have helped spread word about the dangers of such an agreement that its promoters are cleverly and deceitfully labeling a “partnership.”

Nonetheless the first round of a new series of TTIP negotiations was conducted during the week of July 8-12 in Washington, D.C. According to an article appearing in the July 5 Wall Street Journal, the revelations about electronic spying conducted by our nation’s National Security Agency have upset some Europeans. But it won’t deter work toward hammering out the TTIP. This article did say that some European officials expect “the talks could take a couple of years or longer.” A vote by Congress on a completed TTIP agreement is expected in 2015.

While that comment that we have a couple years before a congressional vote amounts to good news, we recommend that messages be sent to your own senators and representative now denouncing the plan for this huge, new trade agreement. All that’s needed is a firm statement asking that the TTIP negotiations cease. Your message could state something along the lines of “Political union results from economic union. Look what happened to the independence of dozens of nations that were lured into the European Union. Our nation must remain independent.”

Send an email to your senators and representative in opposition to the TTIP agreement.

NUGENT: Zimmerman verdict vindicates citizen patrols, self-defense

Via Eric

ted nugent2

So this guy’s neighborhood has been burglarized off and on and the residents are very concerned for their safety and well-being. Neighbors agree to upkick their vigilance and overall level of awareness to watch out for each other and keep an eye out for suspicious individuals and behavior. It could be considered by an official designation such as “Neighborhood Watch”, but officially labeled or not, it is the purest form of Americans watching out for each other and being good neighbors.

So far so good.

So George Zimmerman sees what he believes is a suspicious individual in suspicious circumstances, and intelligently and responsibly pays attention and calls 9-1-1 to report what he sees to the officials. This gesture is proof positive he was not looking to do anyone harm or break any laws, but rather perform the fundamental responsibility of a neighbor who cares.

Doing nothing illegal or improper, he follows the individual while answering all the questions from the 9-1-1 operator to the best of his ability, keeping an eye on the individual so the authorities can hopefully intercept and determine exactly what is going on.

For reasons unknown, though I will comment on momentarily, after expressing racism and hostility on the phone to a friend in response to being followed, the suspect now changes course and turns towards George and immediately initiates a hostile verbal confrontation that quickly escalate to a violent physical assault. Within seconds, the suspect has overwhelmed George, has gained the advantage on top, pinning George to the ground, and further escalates the assault to deadly force by smashing George’s face, breaking his nose, and violently slamming his skull onto the concrete with all his youthful athleticism.

George screams frantically for help as Trayvon Martin pummels his face and head furiously, inflicting damaging and potentially life threatening wounds. Fearing for his life and about to lose consciousness at the hands of an enraged, violent attacker, George Zimmerman does what anyone who wishes to live would do, and he reaches for his concealed handgun, firing a single shot to neutralize the deadly force being wreaked upon him.

This represents the purest form of self-defense there is.

Holder: Stand-your-ground laws defy common sense

Via Billy



Right, dorkhead.  If you are on your back and being beaten, the ground isn't a means of escape, but I guess that escapes your brilliant mind........

Attorney General Eric Holder said the stand-your-ground policies that are law in some states defy common sense, according to the Associated Press.

"It's time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods," he said while speaking at an NAACP convention in Florida.

Stand-your-ground laws across the country have attracted more scrutiny since the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. Zimmerman faced a charge of second-degree murder after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, but was acquitted Saturday.

"There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if — and the 'if' is important — no safe retreat is available," Holder added Tuesday. "But we must examine laws that take this further by eliminating the common sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely."

Colluding in their own enslavement

Via avordvet


Which, we all know that blacks, by their blind insistence on remaining on the Democrat-Socialist plantation en masse, are already doing plenty of it. But it gets even more ludicrously stupid and self-defeating than that, as this commenter points out:
There is an irony in this travesty. The very prosecutors that withheld evidence, lied to the court, coached witnesses and prosecuted without evidence, also prosecute a number of young black men, some not much older than Martin. And in cheering them on, the black community is condoning this behavior, this same lack of “justice”, that is undoubtedly being applied to their own. And they are too blind to see it.
If this is happening in a high profile trial, it is undoubtedly occurring in the prosecutions of many young black men who don’t have the resources, the quality of counsel, nor the publicity that Zimmerman has. But they cheer the prosecution on, because in this case revenge is more important than justice. If it is happening to Zimmerman, it is happening many times over to themselves.
Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.

Awesome: Race-baiting Salon article sparks hilarious outbursts of #WhiteRage

Via Last Resistance


Public displays of violence following the Zimmerman not-guilty verdict have understandably made some of us doubt in others’ ability to keep cool heads. But according to Salon writer Edward Wyckoff Williams, “our real problem is white rage.”

Rage against the white raaaaaaage!

The veiled threat of an aggressive police response to imaginary civil unrest belies the very logic that led to Trayvon Martin’s death to begin with. For, you see, African-Americans are never protected or served by the law enforcement apparatus — yet they are always subject to its military might.
The paradox of being implicitly excluded from the guarantee of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness has been reiterated and reinforced by public policy and social malaise for centuries. President Barack Obama is not immune — as he’s become the target of incessant “white rage”: race-baiting attacks, prejudice and bias even prior to his election. The Republican Party and its neo-Confederate Tea Party wing has been committed to invalidating his political and legislative legacy as much as the Zimmerman jury invalidated the civil rights of Trayvon. The disparate precedent set, therefore, becomes all the more insulting when we’re told to simply shut-up and bear it.

Williams’ musings certainly had “neo-Confederates’” hackles up. Check out their rage-filled responses:

Thugs slaughter two brothers in Jacksonville, FL in front of eyewitnesses

 Avery Wood is the first suspect to be arrested.

Not related?  Don't believe so reading below.

Two brothers 24-year-old Andrew Austin Bohannon and 19-year-old Matthew Ryan Bohannon, both in the same car, were approached by another car carrying multiple occupants.
The car with multiple occupants fired shots into the car carrying the two men.


 Update: Police just made an arrest and say more arrests should come shortly. Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is calling it an armed robbery and specifically stating that it is not a hate crime. It is unclear if anything was actually stolen. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office claims that the “Free Zimmerman” bumper sticker does not exist.

If the races had been reversed, this would be the biggest news story in the United States. The headlines would scream “racial hate crime.” Since it is two white males murderers by a group of black males, it has only received local coverage with explicit denials that it was racial.

Original Post:

Two young brothers were murdered in the parking lot of a Golden Corral in Jacksonville, FL. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s office says they were killed by multiple perpetrators, and that they have a photo of the suspects’ car. There were also multiple witnesses. However, they have not released any information or description of the suspects or the suspects’ car.

Friends of the victims took to social media to report that the brothers had a “Free Zimmerman” bumper sticker on their truck. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office issued a statement denying that the killings were related to the Zimmerman trial. More

Race, Politics and the Zimmerman Trial

Via Billy

The left wants to blame black criminality on racial animus and 'the system,' but blacks have long been part of running that system.

George Zimmerman's acquittal of murder charges in a Florida court has been followed by predictable calls for America to have a "national conversation" about this or that aspect of the case. President Obama wants to talk about gun control. Civil-rights leaders want to talk about racial profiling. Others want to discuss how the American criminal justice system supposedly targets black men.

All of which is fine. Just don't expect these conversations to be especially illuminating or honest. Liberals in general, and the black left in particular, like the idea of talking about racial problems, but in practice they typically ignore the most relevant aspects of any such discussion.
Political Diary editor Jason Riley on why black civil rights leaders focus on white racism instead of personal responsibility. Photo: Getty Images

Any candid debate on race and criminality in this country would have to start with the fact that blacks commit an astoundingly disproportionate number of crimes. African-Americans constitute about 13% of the population, yet between 1976 and 2005 blacks committed more than half of all murders in the U.S. The black arrest rate for most offenses—including robbery, aggravated assault and property crimes—is typically two to three times their representation in the population. The U.S. criminal-justice system, which currently is headed by one black man (Attorney General Eric Holder) who reports to another (President Obama), is a reflection of this reality, not its cause.

Interview with the Dalai Lama's oracle



Over the last two years, a sense of hopelessness has led more than a hundred Tibetans to set themselves on fire to protest Chinese rule. This has put Tibet's spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, and the government-in-exile in an awkward position: while they don't encourage the self-immolations, they lack alternative methods to affect Chinese policy. At the same time, the process by which the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan leaders consult and take policy positions is shrouded in mystery. The Dalai Lama and other exile leaders, for example, often get advice from oracles: powerful spirits channeled by a human medium, or kuten.

The chief state oracle is Nechung, Tibet's wrathful protector spirit. According to the Dalai Lama's 1990 autobiography, Freedom in Exile, the Nechung medium has participated in some of the key turning points in Tibetan history. During the 1959 Tibetan uprising, for instance, when it seemed that Chinese forces were on the verge of detaining the then 23-year-old Dalai Lama, the oracle told him, "Go! Go! Tonight!" The medium also wrote down the precise route the Dalai Lama should take to evade Chinese forces on his way to the Indian border.

The current, or 17th, medium for the Nechung spirit is the 55-year-old Thupten Ngodup. Born in Tibet in 1958, Ngodup experienced the early period of Communist Chinese rule and escaped with his family in 1966, the year Chairman Mao Zedong's disastrous Cultural Revolution began. He joined the exiled wing of the Nechung monastery in Dharamsala, India, in 1971.

"Dealing with Nechung is by no means easy," the Dalai Lama wrote in his autobiography. "It takes time and patience during each encounter before he will open up. He is very reserved and austere, just as you would imagine a grand old man of ancient times to be."

Nechung's current medium, a crimson-robed monk with a shaved head and an easy smile, is engaging and relaxed. But he's also politically attuned to the crisis in Tibet: when we met in February, he was preparing space for a billboard outside his residence to commemorate the Tibetans who have self-immolated. We sat together at Ngodup's home, located on the circumambulation route around the Dalai Lama's residence and temple, where servants brought us tea and sweets. The interview, conducted through a translator, has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Day Three: Zimmerman Protesters Raid Walmart, Stop Freeway


Protesters ran through Los Angeles streets, stopping traffic, breaking windows and at one point raiding a Wal-Mart store, and a major freeway was blocked in the San Francisco Bay Area in the third night of protests in California over George Zimmerman's Florida acquittal in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

In Los Angeles, several hundred mostly peaceful protesters gathered Monday night at Leimert Park southwest of downtown, many of them chanting, praying and singing.

But a smaller group of about 100 people splintered off and began blocking traffic on nearby Crenshaw Boulevard, some of them jumping on cars and breaking windows.

NC: ‘Do I regret doing it? Hell no!’ Marine who urinated on Taliban dead says he’d do it again

Via WiscoDave


A Marine who was fined and demoted for urinating on Taliban corpses in Afghanistan in 2011 says he would do it again.

“I regret maybe any repercussions it might have had on the Marines. But do I regret doing it? Hell no,” Sgt. Joseph Chamblin told WSOC-TV in Charlotte, N.C., adding that he would do it again.

The infamous incident was videotaped and uploaded to YouTube last year, becoming international news and raising fears of retaliation by Afghan troops against their coalition trainers.

“These were the same guys that were killing our family, killing our brothers,” said Sgt. Chamblin, who was on a mission to stop Taliban insurgents from making roadside bombs.

One of his sniper team members, Sgt. Mark Bradley, was killed by a buried bomb days before the incident.

“We’re human,” he said. “Who wouldn’t if you lost your brother or mother? Wouldn’t you want revenge?”



Eric Holder: You Want A Discussion Eh?

Oh, so Eric (Place) Holder thinks we should have a "dignified discussion" on the "mistaken beliefs and stereotypes that serve as the basis for these too-common incidents"?

Which mistaken beliefs are those Eric?

That you have a right to be "respected" and given "deference" on the street?  That is, nobody else has a right to ask you what you're up to or who you are when you are acting in a suspicious manner -- like, for instance, prowling around in a pouring rainstorm?

That you have a right to hit someone who asks you a question because you were "disrespected"? When did that become anything other than a criminal act?

That you have a right to, after hitting someone and knocking them to the ground, to mount them and pound their head into a concrete sidewalk because "one punch isn't enough of a lesson when you're disrespected"?

Or is it a "mistaken belief" that when you are being assaulted in the above fashion that you have every right, morally, ethically and legally to stop that assault using whatever means you have available at your disposal, including the use of lethal force?
You know how you stop these incidents?  It's simple.

Conservative filmmaker pummeled at Trayvon rally


 A conservative filmmaker and journalist says he was pummeled and “mowed to the ground” by an angry mob Sunday night in Oakland, Calif., during a protest of George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the Florida death of Trayvon Martin.

“I have interviews and I have footage of [Trayvon protestors] chanting ‘no justice, no peace – f— you pigs in your sleep,’” the beating victim, Christian Hartsock, told the Daily Caller. “One of them was an elementary schooler chanting with his mom.”

Hartsock initially arrived at 9:30 p.m. Pacific time to film the rally, but shortly afterward, he was told by two men to leave the public area.

Upon his refusal, the men allegedly became belligerent.

“After retreating to a corner to catch B-roll, two young men approached me and interrogated me as to what I was doing there,” Hartsock said. “I advised them I was just there to see what was going on.

They told me to get out. I asked why, which only afforded more threats. I declined their request to leave, they continued marching.”

He continued, “The two young men came back up to me and told me to leave. I told them ‘no’ and asked them what their issue was. Then other ralliers, noticing the two young men’s belligerence toward me, assumed I must have been up to something, so they began to approach me too and ask me what my problem was. I explained that I didn’t have a problem and didn’t know why I was being suddenly questioned. Within seconds there was an entire circle around me, threats being leveled from every direction.

It wasn't just Skittles Trayvon was carrying


This information was posted long ago, but has gone off the radar it seems.

Twitter was in meltdown when the verdict came Saturday night in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin trial. Facebookers like this one were among many writing their fair share of posts on the trial and its outcome.

One online site in particular captured considerable attention – well over 100,000 visits a day and a public post-trial thank-you from Robert Zimmerman, father of the younger Zimmerman: “I have thanked Mark Omara and Don West. Now I would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to you, our friends at CTH.”

The Conservative Treehouse (aka “CTH” and “The Last Refuge”) earned Zimmerman’s grateful acknowledgement because of its extraordinary investigative work undertaken throughout the saga, particularly in obtaining through Freedom of Information Act and publishing public records that revealed the corruption and racism connected to the charges and the trial itself, naming who was involved regardless of how high up the political food chain it went, in what the investigative bloggers called “The Zimmerman Railroading.”

Among its reports, Trayvon Martin’s drug use, explaining how the Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail drink he carried that night are ingredients that, when mixed with dextromethorphan (DXM) cough syrup, create “Lean”, a concocted high which can cause psychosis and aggression over the longer term. According to the autopsy report, Martin’s liver showed damage consistent with DXM abuse.
