    Gen. David Petraeus may be on the short list to be our next secretary of state, but his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, led to him being convicted of mishandling classified information; Broadwell had access to journals of Petraeus that contained sensitive material. I’m not so sure he’s the best pick to lead the State Department. Moreover, isn’t mishandling classified information exactly what we’re trying to avoid and what we slammed Clinton for? Well, another venture Gen. Petraeus is diving into is gun control policy (via CNN):

    After Donald Trump's win, Yolanda Scott is upgrading the crowbar she keeps in her purse to a small-caliber pistol. Scott, an African-American, is one of many minorities who have been flocking to gun stores to protecqt themselves, afraid Trump's victory will incite more hate crimes. "You feel that racists now feel like they can attack us just because the president is doing it," one gun shop owner told NBC News. Gun store owners told NBC News that since November 8 they're seeing up to four times as many black and minority customers —and black gun groups are reporting double the...
  • Trump's pro-Second Amendment platform could end gun sales boom

    11/24/2016 5:15:30 AM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 62 replies
    President-elect Donald Trump is expected to push to relax gun laws when he takes office, but significant changes in the firearms industry began as soon as he was elected – and some put the law of unintended consequences squarely in the cross hairs. For instance, while Trump’s unapologetic pro-Second Amendment stance may be good for gun owners, it has already dealt a blow to manufacturers, who enjoyed record sales throughout President Obama’s eight years in office. Stocks in companies like Smith & Wesson and Sturm, Ruger & Co. plunged on Nov. 9, and experts say it is because Trump’s election...

    PIERRE | A Republican state lawmaker plans to sponsor a bill in the upcoming legislative session that would allow people who can legally carry a concealed handgun in South Dakota to do so without a permit. Right now, it's a misdemeanor under state law for someone to carry a concealed pistol or to have one concealed in a vehicle without a permit. Rep. Lynne DiSanto said Monday that her bill is about personal protection. "I just hope this opens the door to people considering being gun owners and having the opportunity to protect themselves and their families as it was...

    A lawmaker’s proposal to loosen gun laws so Mexican citizens can arm themselves in their cars and at their businesses faces stiff opposition here despite record numbers of gun homicides and a surge in public transit robberies that has provoked a vengeful backlash by armed vigilantes. Residents of Naucalpan, a city located just northwest of Mexico City, are living in a state of “psychosis,” and “terror,” due to a wave of murders, kidnappings and robberies in recent months, according to the Mexico City daily El Universal. Armed assaults on public transit have provoked a deadly response by armed vigilantes riding...
  • Trump Releases His Plan for 2nd Amendment… Leaves Millions Furious

    One common criticism of billionaire businessman and President-elect Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues. That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, after Trump released his official policy position on his campaign website. “The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began. Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists...

    On November 8, every gun owner and Second Amendment supporter in America needs to vote as if your guns depend on it — because they do. The contrast between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could not be more stark than when it comes to the right to keep and bear arms. Trump has pledged to preserve that right, to maintain the Second Amendment “in its strongest form.” But Clinton has vowed to implement numerous new gun controls — including an “assault weapons” ban, a “high-capacity” magazine ban, and universal background checks, which, by the way, have already failed to stop...

So far this year, there have been more than 3,550 shootings, nearly 20 percent more than all of last year. To fight this scourge, we need all hands on deck.

Hillary on Guns Just one small issue: that's not at all what Heller was concerned with. Prior to the Heller decision, the District of Columbia's restrictions on handguns weren't what anyone would call "reasonable." The Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975 was a complete and total ban on the private ownership of handguns--even by trained police officers and by people with a...

    NEW YORK (AP) — More sophisticated cameras. Security robots. Customers feeling shaken by recent attacks at U.S. malls may not notice huge changes — but mall operators are testing and putting in place new technologies and other measures to offer people more protection without intruding too much on their shopping time. Mall executives say shoppers have been adamantly opposed to airport security tactics like metal detectors. So they're trying other things, and increasingly using mass notifications that let them send text and email alerts to tenants within seconds in case of a crisis.

    Three important news stories this week, taken together, cry out for saner gun laws in Illinois — beginning with tougher penalties for gun crimes. In the first story, a man charged with shooting and killing another man near Millennium Park on Saturday was reported to have a criminal record that should have precluded him from even being on the street. The suspect, Paul Pagan, 32 had been arrested 39 times and was twice convicted for pointing a gun during an argument. He has convictions for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, reckless conduct, marijuana possession and possession of a stolen...

    I grew up with guns. Along with my boyhood pals, I grew up coveting, collecting and running wild with guns. "Let's play guns!" was our sham battle cry during those innocent years, the 1940s and '50s. While girls were jumping rope and playing jacks, we boys were shooting up the neighborhood. Depending on the season, we were just as likely to have been playing baseball, basketball or football. But "guns" was our sport for all seasons, fair weather and foul, indoors and out. From prekindergarten years until adolescence, guns had a powerful grip on our imaginations and our sporting lives,...

Colvin was carrying a BB gun officers said resembled a semiautomatic pistol. Similar incidents have unfolded across the country.

That is exactly how it has...

Christie, a Republican, conditionally vetoed the measure that would have required state gun retailers to keep an inventory of smart guns, which can be fired only by authorized users. He sharply criticized the Democrat-led Legislature, which sent him the bill for the second time this year in June. He had previously pocket-vetoed the measure. “This bill is reflective of the relentless campaign by the Democratic legislature to make New Jersey as inhospitable as possible...

    TALLAHASSEE — Florida has more gun manufacturers than any other state except Texas, after a surge of nearly 350 percent in licenses for gun makers fueled by the nation's growing demand for firearms. The increase in gun manufacturing licenses since 2009 has strained the resources of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — the federal law enforcement agency that monitors the nation's gun sales and distribution. As the number of licenses to make firearms grew nationally by nearly 250 percent from 3,040 licenses in 2009 to 10,503 last year, the number of special agents watching manufacturers has increased...

From a German prison, Harry Sarfo recently explained that while ISIS sends trained recruits from Syrian camps to other countries to help execute terrorist attacks, it usually employs a different approach in the United States. It’s “much easier” to reach potential terrorist recruits in America “over the social network,’’ Sarfo told the New York Times. And once they take the internet bait, he said, arming them is simple. “Americans, they’re dumb because they have...

    Ronald Reagan famously said, “One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine.” He believed that government programs ostensibly meant to address public health crises would inevitably chip away at our personal liberties. For evidence that Reagan was right, one need look no further than Obamacare’s mandate requiring all Americans to buy government-approved insurance. The pretext for that travesty involved the alleged menace to public health posed by the uninsured. This year’s Democrat Party Platform has identified another public health threat against which the government must take action — gun...

    A LEOPARD has been scared to death after a mob of villagers hunted the wild animal down and beat it with sticks. The leopard mauled ten people when a mob of villagers cornered the animal and beat it with sticks. The wild animal fought back against the locals and soon chased after dozens of other villagers. The ensuing chaos saw the leopard attack a young child while hundreds of others fled in fear. Onlookers filmed the dramatic footage as the animal attacked locals at Khajuri Pandya village in India.

    On the streets outside a national political convention, citizens should have the right to give thundering voice to issues they care about. But how free will any protesters feel to shout out their minds at the Republican National Convention next week if others who disagree take advantage of Ohio’s lax laws to tote powerful weapons outside the hall? Although many protesters no doubt will show up in Cleveland, we wonder how many will quietly stay home, unnerved at the thought of marching amid so much firepower. The chilling effect is a problem cropping up even at local community meetings across...

    After a fatal shooting involving gun violence in Minnesota, it wasn't just gun control advocates criticizing the National Rifle Association. Some blowback, surprisingly, was coming from within the organization. People claiming to be lifelong members of the NRA challenged the group's stance on gun rights after the organization appeared to drag its feet in addressing the police-involved shooting in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, of Philando Castile, a law-abiding gun owner, which had already garnered national attention.
  • Why not just strip away all rights of those on watch lists?

    07/03/2016 4:19:58 AM PDT · by UpStateNY · 26 replies
    I’ve heard a lot lately about restricting those on the “terror watch list” or “no-fly list” from purchasing a firearm. I get the appeal, because no logical person wants to enable a bad person to do bad things. But if we’re going to restrict the Second Amendment for these people without due process, why stop at just one amendment if it means saving lives? Should people on a terror watch list be allowed to attend a suspected radicalized house of worship? Why allow them to congregate at all? Why is a person suspected of planning terror allowed to have a...
  • Editorial: A smarter way to stop habitual gun offenders

    As police fanned out across the city Friday to guard against Fourth of July weekend shootings, a group including Illinois Sen. Kwame Raoul and Police Supt. Eddie T. Johnson announced a new effort to cut down on gun crime. Although the legislation has yet to be drawn up, the idea behind it — “presumptive guidelines” — looks to us like a smart way to keep the worst gun offenders off the streets for longer periods of time. It would crack down harder on gun crimes without stripping judges of all discretion — and that means it could pull enough votes...

    ---(snip)--- "In fact, using agreement as a political cudgel is a strategy that persists. Last week, Democratic Senate candidate Russ Feingold slammed his opponent, Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, as having a "shameful" approach on gun control. Earlier in the week, Johnson helped block a Senate proposal that would have barred individuals on federal terrorist watch lists from purchasing firearms — a measure that Johnson argued would deprive individuals of a constitutional right without due process. Yet in any typical year, Johnson's largest backer on that front would be... Russ Feingold. For years, Feingold has been a critic of banning gun...
  • Conservatives Will Get a Kick Out of Which Fast Food Joint Dems Called During Their Sit-In

    Democrats have been making a dramatic scene in the House this week by staging a “sit-in” with hopes to force a vote on further gun control laws, spurred by Omar Mateen’s attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando. But even politicians get a little hungry when they are busy sitting on the floor, so they decided to call for some delivery—and conservatives will probably get a kick out of what they ordered. TMZ caught interns bringing in a big cart of Chick-fil-A for the famished protesters.
