  • We Face Terrorist Threats – Don’t Even Think About Enacting Gun Control Laws

    The Daily Caller ^ | 11/18/2015 | Ron Danielowski
    Despite France's draconian gun laws, terrorists have once again proven that only good people obey bad laws, and they do so to their own detriment. It is important to realize that the best security practices, people, and technology governments have to offer could not thwart the ISIS attacks in Paris. Nor will these practices, institutions, and technologies thwart the next attack. [..] Thankfully, the reality of these attacks is that they can be deterred, disrupted, and even defeated by properly trained and well-armed civilian populous. A handful of properly trained civilians carrying concealed weapons in the Bataclan Theatre could have...

    More modern samizdat art from the new media. This poster succinctly portrays the disarmist strategy of disarmament by a thousand cuts, or incremental confiscation. The strategy worked in England and Wales (and one could argue, medieval Japan), but it is not working in the United States. The premise is to make guns costly and difficult or impossible to use without severe legal impediments. This is supposed to lead to reduced levels of gun ownership. When gun ownership drops to the point where it becomes politically ineffective, then wide scale confiscation becomes possible. Until that point, incremental confiscation is the...
  • Why all the Confiscation talk from the Democratic National Socialist Party?

    11/04/2015 12:30:09 PM PST · by Torcert · 65 replies
    In days of yore the Lie was 'No one is talking about Confiscation', but something has changed as of late. Such talk is now common amongst the national Socialist elite despite the lack of a shooting being prevalent in the media. It is axiomatic that one does not call for confiscation until its foundational steps are in place: Intergalactic Background Checks and Registration. The reason should be clear to everyone, people need to be fooled into registering their firearms with the solemn promise that it won't lead to confiscation. This was the case in the UK for example, were the...

    On November 2, The Daily Beast pointed to recent statements from President Obama and Hillary Clinton regarding the implementation of Australian-style gun confiscation and suggested “civil war could erupt on American soil” if any administration actually tried to confiscate privately owned firearms. The Daily Beast theoretically agreed that “confiscation on a massive scale” may be “the only way to solve American gun violence,” but they pointed out that it was not realistic and suggested Hillary risks causing irreparable divisions by talking about confiscation then mocking gun owners as conspiracy theorists waiting for “black helicopters” to come take their guns away....

    In a ruling that directly paves the way for mass confiscation of firearms in America, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, in a much-anticipated decision, has upheld the constitutionality of the New York SAFE Act of 2013. Shockingly, the court ruled that nearly all of the most drastic gun control law in the history of the United States did not violate the Second Amendment and is therefore constitutional. Thats right, a law passed in the wake of Sandy Hook that included and paved the way for confiscation of millions of legally purchased firearms has been ruled constitutional...

    Allahpundit wrote yesterday about Hillary Clinton’s startling lurch to the left on guns. The story dealt largely with her fascinating suggestion that the United States should look at a “buyback program” similar to Australia’s draconian laws which they instituted in 1996 following a mass shooting in Tasmania. (Barack Obama made the same reference last year, by the way, though it never went anywhere.) As AP noted, this wasn’t a gun buy back program such as many states and municipalities have offered. It was mandatory confiscation with a modest cash reimbursement to soften the blow. Before moving on to the latest...

Idaho Republican state Rep. Heather Scott of Blanchard said the Veteran Affairs office has sent a letter to John Arnold of Priest River warning him that he cannot possess or purchase firearms. The protest -spearheaded by Scott- attracted roughly 100 people.

    Barack Obama and his party have made no secret of their desire to enact strict gun control legislation in America. Their efforts have been rebuffed so far by the American people and the Republican legislature. But that hasnt stopped them from plotting any number of ways to try to restrict gun ownership through regulatory, procedural, or executive actions. Those efforts are bound to continue, especially now that the United States Supreme Court appears to be open to reaching decisions based on political considerations and public pressure, as opposed to basing their decisions solely on the U.S. Constitution.

A central component of this humor is to equate gun rights with slavery and talk about how a constitutional amendmentlike the one that banned slaverycould be used to overturn the protections the Second Amendment affords to the rights of self-defense and bearing arms. After all, Jefferies makes clear that he does not believe guns are actually used for protection. And he tells an anecdotal story to explain why: I had a break in in Manchester, England where...

    Do you remember what happened when Cyprus decided to defy the EU? In the end, the entire banking system of the nation collapsed and money was confiscated from private bank accounts. Well, the nation of Greece is now approaching a similar endgame. At this point, the Greek government has not received any money from the EU or the IMF since August 2014. As you can imagine, that means that Greek government accounts are just about bone dry. The new Greek government continues to insist that it will never “violate its anti-austerity mandate”, but the screws are tightening. Right now the...

Rick Bailey, a 56-year-old retired software systems engineer, told TheBlaze on Tuesday that he and his neighbor were engaged in a months-long dispute over his landscaping company. He said his neighbor would park two large, smelly dump trucks used for his business and other vehicles in the small cul-de-sac where they live.

Lynch, currently the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, suggested that innocent owners need not worry about getting hammered by this tool, because forfeiture "is done pursuant to supervision by a court," and "the protections are there." In light of a forfeiture case that Lynch's office had abruptly dropped the previous week, her assurances rang...

Roosevelt called the measure a temporary one (it wasnt), and he followed it up by invalidating gold clauses in private contracts that obligated payment in gold dollars, which had the effect of devaluing the assets of bond and contract holders. ...

    Under the "Safe Act" New York State can confiscate guns without any notice or appeal process, according to this article. From wwnytv.com: They then file a report, which in Jefferson County is sent to county Community Services. "We review it, confirm that the license is indeed appropriate and that the case meets the criteria of the SAFE Act," said Director of Jefferson County Community Services Roger Ambrose. Once they've verified the report, it's sent to Albany. From there, State Police find out if the person identified has a gun permit. If he or she does, police present their findings...

The founding fathers of the American republic knew that there was a natural tendency to do this, as laws, once passed, are extremely difficult to repeal. One of the reasons this is so is that it is easy for authorities to simply not enforce unpopular laws. This removes the incentive to repeal them, but...

Interestingly, before the British passed their own restrictive firearms laws, the most restrictive law in the Anglosphere was the one passed in New York City, the infamous Sullivan law of 1911.

As many as 100,000 people could face heavily armed police smashing down their doors and be charged with a felony. The legislature of CT says that a registration is needed so they can know where the guns are. Yet at the same time, they are sending threatening letters to gun owners. So they already have records of who has purchased certain guns. The fact is, that the CT legislature fully intends to confiscate hundreds of thousands of firearms anyway......

    Hartford Courant demands blood in the streets if that's what it takes for firearms confiscation. Only thing is, they don't seem to believe that it will be THEIR risk they're running. Silly sods. "State Can't Let Gun Scofflaws Off Hook -- Gun Registration: Break the law, pay the price." I don't think they appreciate the dimensions of the problem Lawlor and Malloy have made for themselves.But the bottom line is that the state must try to enforce the law. Authorities should use the background check database as a way to find assault weapon purchasers who might not have registered...

    On Jan. 1, 2014, tens of thousands of defiant gun owners seemingly made the choice not to register their semi-automatic rifles with the state of Connecticut as required by a hastily-passed gun control law. By possessing unregistered so-called assault rifles, they all technically became guilty of committing Class D felonies overnight. Police had received 47,916 applications for assault weapons certificates and 21,000 incomplete applications as of Dec. 31, Lt. Paul Vance told The Courant. At roughly 50,000 applications, officials estimate that as little as 15 percent of the covered semi-automatic rifles have actually been registered with the state. No one...

    The Local, Swedish news in English ^ | 02/05/2014 | Oliver Gee
    Police have called upon the military for help and are scratching their heads as to how and why a man in southern Sweden managed to amass an arsenal of hundreds of weapons, 557 of which he had a licence to own. . . . . . . . Fearing an explosion, officers cordoned off the house and called in a bomb squad and the military for help. Closer inspection showed that the homeowner had actually had licences for 557 of the weapons, but questions have been raised as to whether such an extensive collection is nevertheless in breach of Sweden's...

    Hold on to your wallets, folks. Without a powerful intervention, California may soon become the first big domino to fall in America's public pension debacle. To help prevent catastrophe, the California Public Policy Center (CPPC) has just made public a new database detailing the size and scope of the state's outsized expenditures on public employees the largest ever compiled in California. Legislators and voters should take note, because California can't afford another round of fact-free partisan warfare. As recently reported in the New York Times, the fate of California cities such as Desert Hot Springs where civic bankruptcy...

    This is a stark warning by our brothers at Sun News in Canada that we are headed directly for gun confiscation and are blazing the same path that they took. It starts in Connecticut where they have now forced gun owners to register their weapons and Brian Lilly explains precisely how this new registration law will lead to gun confiscation. This is a MUST WATCH:

    Washington Times ^ | 1/1/14 | Emily Miller
    For the first time in the United States, a citizen who has legally registered a gun will have to submit to a renewal process. The consequences of not knowing about this new law or missing the specific 60-day window are dire. Starting on Jan. 2, every single D.C. resident who has registered a firearm since 1976 must go to police headquarters to pay a $48 fee and be photographed and fingerprinted. The Metropolitan Police Department estimates there are at least 30,000 registered gun owners. If the registrant does not go to the police station within three months after a set...

    SACRAMENTO Gun registration had always seemed like the line in the sand a proposal that would so offend the nations gun-rights advocates that they would bring out their full political muscle to stop it. Yet a California law mandating government record-keeping for all new long-gun purchases goes into effect on Jan. 1 and few people even seem to know about it. (snip) The new law will bolster a program that has generated much controversy. Earlier this month, legislators held hearings on the effectiveness of the Armed Prohibited Persons System, used to confiscate the firearms of California residents who...

    Connecticut residents waited in long lines on Thursday to register their firearms and high-capacity magazines before the states new gun laws go into effect on Jan. 1, 2014. WFSB-TV reports that a long-line of people stood outside the Public Safety Building in Middletown, Conn., all day to register semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines. Several residents were upset with the unconstitutional requirement, while at least one person didnt appear to mind. I understand why theyre doing it, but I dont think its constitutional, resident Scott Boccio told WFSB-TV as he was registering his guns. Charles Gillette, who was registering magazines, told...
