    SAS veterans ask PM to intervene over "monstrous" jailing of war hero David Cameron has been urged to intervene to secure the release of a former SAS sniper who was jailed for possessing a pistol given to him as a present by Iraqi soldiers he trained. By Sam Marsden 2:46PM GMT 14 Nov 2012 Four high-profile British special forces veterans have written to the Prime Minister appealing for help to overturn a “monstrous miscarriage of justice” in the case of Sergeant Danny Nightingale. They compared his treatment by the judicial system to that given to Abu Qatada, the extremist cleric...
  • [Vanity] Should I renew my C&R FFL?

    My Mind's Eye | 14 November 2012 | Ron Arestia
    So I received my renewal notice for my C&R FFL (03) yesterday, as it's due to expire in February. I've been religious with my renewals for years, but this year just feels different. I saw that BATFE seal on the envelope and my heart sank a little knowing that they're under this Marxist administration. My question to FReepers and firearm aficionados is this: should I renew? My feelings are that at some point in the future, firearms are going to be restricted either by international treaty (i.e. UN ATT) or by executive fiat, and I wonder if it would be...

    Most conservatives believe that the re-election of President Barack Obama is going to bring dire economic circumstances over the next four years, which could possibly drive the Nation into total collapse.The belief is likely not far-fetched considering the current state of affairs in American economics as the United States hurls toward a “fiscal cliff” which will combine rising tax rates and government shutdowns, the government prepares to raise its debt limit again to the tune of $2.4 trillion and the number of Americans out of work continues to trend at dismal levels.All of the ominous headlines about the shape of...

    Obama’s second term driving firearms sales to new heightsPresident Obama’s re-election has sent Americans running to the gun stores. Sales of firearms and ammunition are way up in reaction to Mr. Obama saying during the debates he wants to ban everything from “cheap handguns” to common hunting rifles with scary-looking features. The two publicly traded U.S. gunmakers have seen investors flock to their stock since Nov. 6. Sturm, Ruger & Co. and Smith & Wesson are both up over 15 percent, while the broader markets were down over the same period. Gun dealers are seeing the same rush at their...

    Gun sales are up in the wake of Barack Obama's re-election on Tuesday, driven by fears of tighter regulations under a Democratic president, especially for firearms that might be classified as assault weapons. "Sales are up," said John Kielbasa, owner of Fernwood Firearms in Hankins, N.Y. "I had a guy waiting here first thing in the morning [after the election.] He came in, bought two AK-47s." Kielbasa said that he sells semiautomatic versions of the fully automatic Kalashnikov rifles, as is permitted by law. He said the demand for semiautomatic rifles is being stoked by memories of the assault weapon...

    There are certain things you expect to see in a 97-year-old woman's home and certain things you don't. Katie Watson from Richfield, North Carolina is full of things you wouldn't figure. She shot her first rabbit when she was 10 years old. To this day, she hunts quail and turkey but she's probably most proud of the fact that she's tagged 44 deer since she turned 80. "How many men still hunt when they're 97?" she asks. If you wondered how she gets around in the woods, she takes an A.T.V. Watson doesn't plan on slowing down any time soon....

    Open carry of guns just went into effect in Oklahoma November 1st. It's something legislators in Arkansas have been trying to pass for years, but always failed. Lawmakers and gun owners think now is the time for Arkansas to adopt an open carry law. Open carry of guns is a sensitive issue with strong opinions on both sides, and while passing open carry laws in the past have always failed in Arkansas, now with the support of neighboring state Oklahoma, open carry supporters say, it betters the chances Arkansas could pass a similar law. 43 states allow gun owners to...

    Who could imagine the sound of enemy fire would signal the last rites for our honored dead? In what may be among the most ironic acts of official neglect and insensitivity of the past seven decades, the Russian SKS rifle is now used in ceremonial service by some honor guards as the last sound our Native American veterans and their families hear as veterans are laid to rest across South Dakota. It is an act of omission and ignorance. The SKS is a Soviet semi-automatic rifle designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. The Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova 1945 was...

    Owners of guns have been stocking up because they are concerned about a potential tightening of regulations on assault weapons in the president's second term. In October the number of background checks on people applying to buy guns, an indicator of future sales, increased by 18.4 per cent. There was a similar jump when President Obama was first elected in 2008. A total of 12.7 million background checks were carried out that year, up from 11.2 million the year before, and the number has been rising since then. Shares in weapons manufacturers like Smith & Wesson and Sturm, Ruger also...

A working 9mm Glock handgun, given to him after he trained a counterterrorism force in 2007, was found in his home by police last year. He said he forgot he had the weapon and failed to declare it. His wife Sally described the father of two as a 'hero who has been betrayed', while the sentence came in for more criticism after it was handed down in the days leading up to Remembrance Sunday.

    How much sense does this make? And if you have any common sense, you’ll answer “none.” An 18-year-old can openly carry a loaded gun in Overland Park without going through background checks by the state or additional firearms safety training required for concealed carry. But a person 21 or older would have to jump through such training and safety hoops to conceal and carry. Yes, the younger, more likely less mature gun owner is freer to pack heat openly. It’s the latest twist for Overland Park around the contentious open-carry gun law. A 7 p.m. meeting Wednesday of the city’s...

    SPRINGFIELD, IL (IRN) - The point man for “concealed carry” in Illinois is somewhat encouraged by the results of advisory votes in 10 counties Tuesday. “I think it shows the frustration that people have with the lack of advancement on the issue with the legislature,” says Todd Vandermyde, lobbyist for the National Rifle Association in Illinois. While some would say an advisory referendum carries no weight, Vandermyde disagrees, saying it spotlights the Chicago and suburbs vs. Downstate divide on concealed carry. He says he’s awaiting the results of a federal court case which could strengthen concealed carry as a right,...

    Recently, in NRA v. BATFE, the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit upheld the ban on the sale of handguns by federally licensed dealers to persons under the age of 21. The law in question, which was codified in sections of 18 USC § 922 and was passed as part of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 [PDF], raises serious issues under the Second Amendment. Persons in the 18 to 20-year-old age group at issue have borne arms in military service since the US was founded and are entitled to vote under the Twenty-Sixth...

On October 26, 2012, Barack Obama quietly signed an Executive Order (EO) establishing the so-called Homeland Security Partnership Council, a public-private partnership that basically merges the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with local governments and the private sector for the implied purpose of giving the Executive Branch complete and limitless control over the American people. One of the most effective...

    Gun sales are headed for a boom following President Barack Obama’s reelection. In October, the number offirearms background checks performed on potential gun buyers across the U.S. jumped 18.4%, according to data released by the FBI. The number of applications for gun ownership is considered a leading indicator for future gun sales. Experts believe the spike is linked to jitters that a Democratic administration might try to tighten gun control laws. Gun sales also rose in 2008 after Obama was first elected. The FBI conducted 12.7 million background checks that year, compared to 11.2 million the year before, a 13.4%...

Nearly 75 percent of voters — more than 1.3 million — voted in favor of Act 784, which makes gun ownership a "fundamental right … under strict scrutiny of the court." "Strict scrutiny" applies the highest standard of judicial review to any law concerning gun ownership. It typically is applied to human rights — owning a gun in Louisiana is now a "fundamental right."

A row erupted last month when it emerged WH Smith was refusing to sell shooting titles to under-14s, even though they can legally hold a shotgun licence below that age. Country sports enthusiasts responded by launching a lobbying campaign. Members of the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) have been visiting stores, e-mailing the company and lobbying via social media while an online petition has attracted 12,000 signatures. The association said it now appeared that WH Smith...

    Second Amendment: Within hours of re-election, the administration fast-tracked a treaty in the United Nations that transcends borders and tramples our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. It was no coincidence. Less than 24 hours after President Obama's re-election, the U.S. Mission to the United Nations helped move the U.N.'s Arms Control Treaty a step closer to enactment. America joined 157 other nations in voting Wednesday to finalize the treaty in March. None was opposed and there were 18 abstentions. U.N. delegates and gun-control activists had complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican...

    Just a few hours after being re-elected, President Obama encouraged the United States to support new United Nations discussions on a global treaty regulating guns and the gun industry. Supporters of the treaty believe the talks collapsed in July due to the campaign and Obama’s fears that Romney could use it against him. Now that the President has four more years in office, the White House is ready for the discussions to begin again. “While everybody is saying, you know he’s going to compromise. He’s going to get together with the Democrats and the Republicans, he’s going to reach across...

    Vanity question for Y’all: which is better for laser grips – Red or Green? Merely as an academic exercise (ahem) shopping around to see which type of laser sight is better. The research so far has yielded positive side results that green lasers are superior due to the eye’s better perception of that color. The downside is that it takes more to get a green laser – and thus higher cost and it takes 10x more power to produce. The better perception could be a downside in that someone can more easily track the beam back to it’s source. So...

    BALTIMORE (CBSDC) — Attorney General Eric Holder might not be sticking around for a second term. Holder told law school students at the University of Baltimore School of Law that he does not know if he will stay in his job. “That’s something that I’m in the process now of trying to determine,” Holder said. “I have to think about, can I contribute in a second term?” Holder says he needs to sit down with his family and President Obama to see if he wants to continue on the job. “[I have to] really ask myself the question about, do...

    Second Amendment: The United Nations is putting the finishing touches on an Arms Trade Treaty that transcends borders and may even trample our Constitutional right to bear arms. Every indication is that the president will sign it. Like the New Start and Law of the Sea treaties before it, as well as the Kyoto Protocol and Agenda 21, the Arms Trade Treaty being finalized at the U.N. this month is one of those feel-good, can't-we-all-get-along pieces of parchment whose net effect is to accomplish little except to eat away at American sovereignty and freedom. Just as the world's worst human...

    Those of us who thought U.N election observers would be completely worthless or unhelpful today, were wrong. U.N. observers are expressing their surprise at how much trust Americans put into the election system without verification and cannot believe Voter I.D. isn't a national requirement to vote. "It's an incredible system," said Nuri K. Elabbar, who traveled to the United States along with election officials from more than 60 countries to observe today's presidential elections as part of a program run by the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES). Your humble Cable guy visited polling places with some of the international...
