Alarms are being raised about a new three-state poll that shows overwhelming majorities supporting such things as legalized medical marijuana nationwide, approving a path to citizenship for illegal aliens who are working, pay taxes and have no criminal record, and establishing national gun registration.
The poll was conducted among voters in New York, New Jersey and Virginia. Two of those three states, acknowledged Don Levy, director of the Siena College Research Institute, who spearheaded the survey with colleagues at Roanoke College in Virginia and Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey, are “notoriously left of center.”
That was quick! It took filmmaker Harvey Weinstein less than 24 hours to recognize the error of his ways. Last night, the producer of several violent films, appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan and was asked by the host about his plans to make a film that will make the NRA “wish they weren’t alive.”
The National Rifle Association (NRA) on Friday revealed that evidence was uncovered that not only is D.C. engaged in double-standards, but that the District of Columbia and Philadelphia police departments provided firearms to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to help her promote her “assault weapon” ban legislation in January.
The NRA also stated that the police agencies who gave Feinstein the weapons denied the same request from Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for firearms to be used in their presentations opposing the ban. Continue reading →
Gun rights activists have received permission from the Colorado State Attorney General’s office, to start gathering signatures to recall a third senator, Evie Hudak. This comes on the heels of two successful recalls just last month. A win here would turn the state senate over to the republicans.
The petitoners need 18,900 signatures in order to force a recall election. Mike McAlpine, a spokesman for the group emailed the Denver Post with the following statement:
How dare Barack HUSSEIN Obama turn the Memorial Service for the 12 murdered at the Washington Navy Yard into a political platform for his already failed in Congress gun control platform.
“I’m here today to say there’s nothing routine about this tragedy. There’s nothing routine about your loss…We must insist here today there is nothing normal about innocent men and women being gunned down where they work,” Obama told those gathered (setting the stage for calling this massacre yet another case of ‘workplace violence’ perhaps), and then he morphed into full political campaign mode… forgetting why he was there…as he started spewing his entire ‘bad gun’ rhetoric.

I posted this 3 weeks ago but suddenly it has gone viral with a vengeance, so I am reposting it. Enjoy.
Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy has just released a study of the relative effects of stringent gun laws. They found that a country like Luxenbourg, which bans all guns has a murder rate that is 9 times higher than Germany, where there are 30,000 guns per 100,000 people. They also cited a study by the U.S.National Academy of Sciences, which studied 253 journal articles, 99 books, 43 government publications, and it failed to find one gun control initiative that worked.
In fact, in many cases it found that violence is very often lower, where guns are more readily available. The report points to a myth that guns are more easily obtained in the United States than in Europe. That is factually incorrect.
