    Connnecticut State Police Maj. William Podgorski, one of the lead investigator in the Sandy Hook shooting investigation, died earlier this week. Podgorski, 49, died on Monday following a brief illness and surgery. The illness was undisclosed ... Sometime after surgery on Friday, Podgorski was transferred to Yale-New Haven Hospital from another hospital, Grant said. He died there Monday morning surrounded by his family. ... Podgorski was not only a part of the Sandy Hook investigation, but also was a hero in the community he served. He was awarded the Lifesaving Award from the department in 2006 after he came upon...

    Katie Couric’s 2014 documentary Fed Up includes instances of deceptive editing similar to 2016’s Under the Gun, according to several people familiar with the making of the film. Fed Up, which focuses on obesity and the food industry, was directed by Stephanie Soechtig and produced by Couric. The film includes two interviews with figures who hold viewpoints counter to the narrative of the film, and sources say both interviews include at least one misleading or deceptive edit intended to embarrass the interviewee. Dr. David Allison, an interview subject in the film and the director of the Nutrition Obesity Research Center,...

    During a PBS town hall meeting, president Obama was asked why he and Hillary want to control and restrict guns and ammunition to responsible gun owners. Obama's response was the typical stock answer of rejecting the "notion" that anyone is hell-bent on taking away "folks' guns", yada yada. However, as AllOutdoor notes, if you listen carefully to Obama's full response, there is a comment Obama gives about knowing browser history that should sent everyone into a blind rage.

    On Sunday, Hillary Clinton just couldn’t bring herself to say on ABC's "This Week" that Americans have an individual right to own guns. But it didn’t stop her from denying Donald Trump’s claim that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. Clinton accused Trump of making “outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue.” From changing the Supreme Court to make it possible to again ban guns in the United States to making it more costly to own guns, I predict that a President Hillary Clinton will do four things to either ban guns or at least reduce...

If substantiated, the claim will destroy Couric’s reputation as a journalist and Soechtig’s reputation as a director. It appears that the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) participants have the evidence in the form of audio from the interview that substantiates their claims.

Occasionally, all these hypocritical qualities are found in one person or, in this case, seven people.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is making clear that it doesn’t matter where you conduct your business—from a store, at gun shows, or over the Internet: If you're in the business of selling firearms, you must get a license and conduct background checks.

    In 2013, the New York City Police Department began sending notices to certain gun owners using a “…centralized firearms registry which lists the city’s gun owners and what firearms they have in their possession.” The notice referred to firearms prohibited under New York’s “Safe Act,” the law passed (in part) in vengeful retaliation against law abiding owners of so-called “Assault Weapons” for the murders at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The gun owners were given a simple choice—surrender the now illegally held guns to the police, remove them from the city, destroy them or become a wanted...

    The banning of private gun ownership in Venezuela has made firearms such a valuable commodity that 57% of police killed in the nation’s capital this year were targeted for their weapons, according to Venezuela’s largest newspaper. El Universal reports that 57% of police killed in Gran Caracas–the greater Caracas metro area–were robbed for their guns, according to official national security statistics “obtained extra-officially.” These include both common police and the members of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces, which operate on a federal level. Of the 47 police killings on the record in 2015, 27 occurred as part of a gun...

Once NICS gets the report, it labels the veteran “incapacitated,” which means that he along with his family members who live in the same household are barred by law from buying or owning firearms.

    Have you ever thought of letting someone else manage your finances? If President Obama has his way, Social Security recipients who have trouble managing their finances will be banned from buying a gun. If Social Security were to start classifying these people as “mentally defective,” some 4.2 million Social Security recipients could be affected – about 10 percent of all people 65 and older. But it is a real reach to say those who can’t manage their finances are a physical danger to themselves or others. What is next? Saying that people who can’t drive well or fail a math...

    Gun Control: To some, concern over a U.N. Arms Trade Treaty set to take effect Dec. 24 is much ado about nothing. But a president unconstrained by Congress or the Constitution may try to impose severe limits on gun rights. All treaties must be ratified by two-thirds of the Senate, and that's not about to happen in the case of the unratified Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), particularly after the 2014 election that gave the GOP Senate control. The same, of course, could have been said about the Kyoto Protocol and other climate change deals that mandate that governments tie their...

The bill passed the senate 23-8. It passed the assembly once, but...

    The old Soviet Union did not generally destroy the weapons that it confiscated from people.   The Soviets understood value, and did not wantonly destroy valuable property for no reason.   They confiscated much property and sold it for state purposes, used it in defense of the state, or redistributed it to "reliable" Party members and officials. I am looking for sources to validate how the Soviets distributed the weapons that they confiscated.   I know that even old obsolete revolvers made for the Czar were refurbished in state armories.   I own one.

The laws also make it very clear that there will be a process for seizing an “abuser’s” guns. This section of the law was proposed by Republican Rep. Andre Jacque of De Pere, and also requires district attorneys to report to the Wisconsin Department of Justice each time a cop responds to a domestic abuse call and doesn’t arrest anyone.

    To date, a reported 50,016 people have guaranteed the eventual confiscation of their firearms by obeying the “Assault Weapons” registration requirements of Connecticut’s new gun law. But according to a 2011 study commissioned by the Connecticut Office of Legislative Research it is estimated that more than 300,000 additional weapons have NOT been registered, their owners refusing to relinquish either their semi-auto rifles OR their liberty to Connecticut lawgivers. (Given recent record sales years that 300,000 could today be 400,000 or more.) So in spite of the threats of Connecticut’s left-wing politicos to imprison those with the courage to defy unconstitutional...

And now, as the state issues threatening letters and increased confiscation rhetoric, citizens are telling the state: “Come and take them.” Lawmakers in Connecticut have already threatened current gun owners with confiscation in...

    <p>Two and a half years ago, I called Harlan Ellison because I’d heard through a family friend that he was dying. Well, I heard it through a family friend and because he announced it to an audience of fans at a science-fiction convention in Wisconsin. When I spoke with the legendary – and legendarily combatitive – sci-fi writer on the phone shortly afterwards, his voice was weak. You’d better come by soon, he said. I did, and with a tray full of noodle kugle that my mom made for him and for his wife, Susan.</p>

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Connor in Norwood, Massachusetts. Connor, I'm glad you waited. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi. CALLER: Thanks, Rush. You're nice to have me on. RUSH: You bet, sir. CALLER: Excellent. So there's press release yesterday. La Raza is joining up with the NAALCP saying they want the DOJ to take action on this case, which I presume is probably civil rights charges, though, they don't say it. I was wondering what you think of La Raza and why they're not standing up for Zimmerman. RUSH: Well, that's not all that hard to understand. La Raza is a...

    Gun Geo Marker ^ | June 2013
    Gun marking guidelines The general guideline is that you should mark any location about which you have a gun related concern, while trying to provide enough extra information for others to make their own determination about safety. An important secondary warning is that the Walkingtools Gun Geo Marker is not intended as a reporting mechanism for active threats. If you are concerned for anyone’s immediate safety, call 911 immediately.Users submit data (crowd sourcing) about dangerous gun and owner sites. The Gun Geo Marker UI allows users to select from danger categories and provide extra contextual information.First and foremost it is...
  • Gun seizures trigger fear of massive police power: Is your front door no longer sacred?

    A flurry of recent stories about police knocking on – and sometimes knocking in – people’s front doors have raised alarms in both the U.S. and Canada about whether the home is still constitutionally protected from increasing police power. As WND reported, High River, Alberta, has become a recent focal point of the controversy, when it was revealed Royal Canadian Mounted Police entered the flooded town after a mandatory evacuation, broke down doors and began confiscating “several hundred” firearms. The details are eerily reminiscent of New Orleans during hurricane Katrina, when officers similarly invaded homes and confiscated thousands of weapons...

    The New York Times ^ | June 1, 2013 | Javier C. Hernandez
    CARSON CITY, Nev. — John W. Griffin is a fast-talking, whiskey-loving, fifth-generation Nevadan who spends his days as a lobbyist courting lawmakers in Stetsons. He advocates for luxury casinos, once brokered a dispute between a brothel and a nightclub, and has helped feuding families resolve tussles over cattle crossings. Now he is representing the ultimate city slicker, Michael R. Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, who, undaunted by defeat in Congress, is taking his campaign for stricter gun laws to the nation’s state capitals, including here, where a bill to expand the use of criminal background checks is before the...

    Gun control activists do not want to confiscate our guns. Really. Just trust them about it. They don’t. Instead, they just want to pass simple, common sense and reasonable gun laws that have nothing to do with confiscating lawfully owned property. Trust them. They really, really don’t want to take our guns. Really. As President Barack Obama said on the campaign trail in 2008, “I believe in the Second Amendment. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away … But I am not going to take your guns...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | May 12, 2013 | AWR Hawkins
    A hot mic at a May 9 New Jersey Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee hearing caught state senators mocking gun owners after the meeting ended. The Senators had just finished discussing new gun control legislation when the hearing adjourned. Then a conversation that "appears to be among Sens. Loretta Weinberg (D37), Sandra Cunningham (D31), Linda Greenstein (D14)," and an unidentified member of a senatorial staff, took place. It began by mocking gun owners for fearing confiscation and ends by talking of how gun owners say they want to keep guns out of the hands of "the bad guys," yet they...

    A procedural twist means the anti-gun rights agenda of President Barack Obama and the Democrats was not stopped when, April 17th, a series of amendments at the heart of the bill to ban so-called assault weapons was defeated. “But make no mistake: this debate is not over. This is not the end of the fight. Republicans are in an unsustainable position – crosswise with nine out of ten Americans,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.). The nine-out-of-ten quote refers to polls that show overwhelming support for the expansion of pre-gun purchase background checks sponsored by Sen. Patrick J. Toomey...

    Senator Pat Toomey
    I sent an email to Senator Toomey urging him to oppose the Senate gun control efforts even in the face of his Manchin-Toomey legislation. Here is his response - I'm sure it's canned: Dear (Castigar), Thank you for contacting me about national firearms policy. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue. Like many Pennsylvanians, I have long been a supporter of the Second Amendment. Americans have an individual right to bear arms for self-protection, hunting and recreation. In fact, during my tenure in the House of Representatives (1999-2005), my record of supporting gun owners' rights earned me an...

    The Camp Verde Bugle ^ | April 23, 2013 | Rick E. Brenfleck
    Editor: I can't resist the urge to offer a few comments about the letter from A.E. Andress in the Friday edition of The Bugle regarding a "rational and reasonable" approach to guns. I'll address the proposed "modifications" to the Second Amendment by the numbers. 1. Universal, comprehensive background checks. The Tucson shooting, the Aurora shooting, and the Newtown shooting were all reportedly done with weapons that were purchased from licensed gun dealers, hence, the purchasers went through the already federally mandated background checks. Even the guy who shot President Reagan and Mr. Brady, for whom the Brady Bill is erroneously...
