Franklin Graham, SBC leader Richard Land Support Background Checks for Gun Purchases
3/13/13

Major evangelical leaders recently announced their support for universal background checks for all firearms purchases in America.

The Rev. Franklin Graham, president of the Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse and Dr. Richard Land, outgoing head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, stated this in interviews with Time Magazine.

"As ministers, we agreed together that we could stand on a united front for universal background checks … We think that's reasonable and responsible," said Graham.

"There are millions of people that we can mobilize behind something like this, but it takes leadership from the White House."

"We're not going to oppose universal background checks – it's a nice idea but only law-abiding citizens follow that," said Land. "The more the president can make this a multi-pronged [effort] the more support he's going to receive from evangelicals."

Both evangelical leaders agreed that in addition to background checks other efforts, such as holding the entertainment industry accountable for violent content and reforming the mental health care, are needed.

The remarks of Graham and Land come as the Washington National Cathedral is preparing for a series of events meant to spread awareness about the cost of gun violence.

Titled "National Gun Violence Sabbath," the events will take place March 14-17 and will be live streamed on the National Cathedral's website.

According to a February statement from the National Cathedral, the event is organized with the support of the group Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence.

"This is a critical moment in the life of our nation. The faith community has seen the tragic results of inaction, and we cannot stand by any longer," said the Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the cathedral, in a statement.

"No one should be at risk from gun violence in a schoolroom, in the workplace, on our city streets, at a shopping mall, a movie theater – or anywhere else. This weekend of programs offers time to reflect, unite, and act to curb the epidemic of gun violence in our midst."

While the background checks proposal gains support from both ends of the Christian theological spectrum, the idea still has its critics.

Wayne LaPierre, CEO for the National Rifle Association, spoke at the Western Hunting & Conservation Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah, and called universal background checks "the heart of [the] anti-gun agenda."

"This is not universal background checks. This is universal registration of your firearms. Imagine right now your name on a massive government list," said LaPierre.

"How safe do you think that government list will be? Think it's secure? Well, WikiLeaks had no trouble tapping into secret government computers. China hacked into Pentagon computers."

Also was reading another article today over how Hitler's/N@zi Germany's agendas were implemented(ie-gun confiscation) largely b/c of the ORGANIZED CHURCH SYSTEM there that helped him. Probably why we should not marvel now over so-called "evangelical" leaders emerging as the bigger mouthpieces in this gun control movement as well.

After a half a century over the organized church system getting tax benefits, looks like Caesar is calling in his chips now.

Judgment must begin at the house of the Lord...

Connecticut lawmakers reach deal on 'most comprehensive' gun limits in US

Connecticut lawmakers on Monday said they had reached an agreement on compromise gun control legislation that they said would be one of the toughest in the nation, 3½ months after 20 children and six other people were killed in a mass shooting at an elementary school.

The bill includes a ban on large-capacity ammunition magazines like those Adam Lanza used to fire 154 shots in four 4 minutes Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, a new registry for existing high-capacity magazines and background checks for private gun sales, NBC Connecticut reported.

While the measure would ban the sale of ammunition magazines able to handle more than 10 bullets, Gov. Dannell Malloy and parents of the Sandy Hook victims objected to a "grandfather clause" that will allow current owners of such magazines to keep them.

NEED AMMO? WHERE'S YOUR ELIGIBILITY CERTIFICATE?

 With an announcement of sweeping proposals to curb gun violence, Connecticut lawmakers said they are hoping to send a message to Congress and other state legislators across the country: A bipartisan agreement on gun control is possible.

Legislative leaders on Monday revealed proposals spurred by the Dec. 14 Newtown school shooting following weeks of bipartisan, closed-door negotiations. A vote is expected Wednesday in the General Assembly, where Democrats control both chambers, making passage all but assured.

"Democrats and Republicans were able to come to an agreement on a strong, comprehensive bill," said Senate President Donald E. Williams Jr., a Democrat from Brooklyn, who called the proposed legislation the strongest, most comprehensive bill in the country. "That is a message that should resound in 49 other states and in Washington, D.C. And the message is: We can get it done here and they should get it done in their respective states and nationally in Congress."

The massacre reignited the gun debate in the country and led to calls for increased gun control legislation on the federal and state levels. While some other states, including neighboring New York, have strengthened their gun laws, momentum has stalled in Congress, whose members were urged by President Barack Obama last week not to forget the shooting and to capitalize on the best chance in years to stem gun violence.

The Connecticut deal includes a ban on new high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 20 children and six educators dead. There are also new registration requirements for existing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets, something of a disappointment for some family members of Newtown victims who wanted an outright ban on the possession of all high-capacity magazines and traveled to the state Capitol on Monday to ask lawmakers for it.

The package also creates what lawmakers said is the nation's first statewide dangerous weapon offender registry, creates a new "ammunition eligibility certificate," imposes immediate universal background checks for all firearms sales, and extends the state's assault weapons ban to 100 new types of firearms and requires that a weapon have only one of several features in order to be banned.

The newly banned weapons could no longer be bought or sold in Connecticut, and those legally owned already would have to be registered with the state, just like the high-capacity magazines.

Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, a Fairfield Republican whose district includes Newtown, said Republicans and Democrats have understood they needed to "rise above politics" when they decided to come up with a legislative response to the massacre.

"At the end of the day, I think it's a package that the majority of the people of Connecticut I know will be proud of," he said.

The bill also addresses mental health and school security measures, including gun restrictions for people who've been committed to mental health facilities and restoration of a state grant for school safety improvements.

After clearing the state legislature, the bill would be sent to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who has helped lead efforts to strengthen the state's gun laws but has not yet signed off on the proposed legislation. Earlier Monday, Malloy voiced support for the Newtown families and their desire to ban the possession of large-capacity magazines.

Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence, said his group will live with the lawmakers' decision not to ban them as other states have done. He said the leaders made their decision based on what was politically feasible.

"We have to be satisfied. There are still other things that we want, we'll be back for in later sessions," he said. "But for now, it's a good thing."

Robert Crook, executive director of the Connecticut Coalition of Sportsmen, contended the bill would not have changed what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where gunman Adam Lanza fired off 154 shots with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle within five minutes. He went through six 30-round magazines, though half were not completely empty, and police said he had three other 30-round magazines in addition to one in the rifle.

"They can register magazines and do all the rest of this stuff. It isn't going to do anything," he said.

Gun owners, who've packed public hearings at the state Capitol in recent months, voicing their opposition to various gun control measures, are concerned they've been showing up "for virtually nothing" after learning about the bill, Crook said.

Six relatives of Newtown victims visited the Capitol on Monday, asking lawmakers to ban existing high-capacity magazines. Some handed out cards with photographs of their slain children.

Allowing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets to remain in the hands of gun owners would leave a gaping loophole in the law, said Mark Barden, whose 7-year-old son, Daniel, was killed in the shooting.

"It doesn't prevent someone from going out of the state to purchase them and then bring them back. There's no way to track when they were purchased, so they can say, 'I had this before,'" Barden said. "So it's a big loophole."

Barden and other victims' family members who visited the statehouse on Monday did not immediately respond to messages seeking their reactions to the agreement.

Jake McGuigan, a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which is based in Newtown, said he wouldn't comment on the proposal until he saw it in the writing, but he questioned the mechanics of a registry for magazines.

"How will they register a magazine? It seems a little weird," he said.

We will see where all of this goes - right under everyone's noses, they are pushing universal background checks, meaning everyone who buys a gun will have to register in the nation's database(or something like that).

Sen. Grassley and Republicans Plan to Work With Democrats On Legislation Attacking 2nd Amendment
3/31/13

Despite a plan by Republican senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to derail and defeat S. 649, the Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013, Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley is preparing work with Democrats in their war on the Second Amendment next month.

According to pro-Second Amendment websites, Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated he may support “gun control lite” legislation. “You would think ALL Republicans are lining up behind Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to support the filibuster of Harry Reid’s gun control bill — S. 649,” writes AmmoLand today. “But that’s just not happening.”

Senate Democrats, led by Majority Leader Harry Reid, are looking to find Republicans they can deal with after Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn refused to collude with them on anti-Second Amendment legislation.

“If Reid manages to pick up the support of enough Senate Republicans, Obama will get what he wants — fictitious ‘gun trafficking’ legislation, so-called ‘mental health screenings’ and ‘expanded background checks,’” AmmoLand reports. “Possibly even more gun control like Feinstein’s so-called ‘assault weapons ban’ and a federal magazine ban will also be on the table.”

Grassley is the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. If he supports “gun control lite” many junior senators will find it more difficult to oppose legislation aimed at the heart of the Second Amendment.

In 2009, Grassley cut a deal with Democrats on Obama’s socialist healthcare takeover. He was the top Republican negotiator in the “Gang of Six,” a group of Senate Finance Committee members negotiating with Democrats on Obamacare.

“Senator Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell’s history of ‘deal-cutting’ should be so worrisome to gun owners,” AmmoLand explains. “I don’t have to go back far to remind you that Mitch McConnell has a history of caving in to the demands of Obama and Harry Reid.”

McConnell has worked closely with Senate Democrats in the past, most recently on the so-called “fiscal cliff” deal that gave Obama and Reid $41 in tax increases in exchange for $1 in spending cuts.

“Our political insiders are telling us that Grassley is hoping to draft a proposal that would drastically expand the scope of the mental health laws – leaving thousands of Iowans vulnerable to losing their gun rights on the whim on any ‘mental health professional,’” Iowa Gun Owners warned on Friday
.


As we noted in February, the federal government has stepped up its effort to strip veterans of their firearms by issuing determinations of mental incompetency.

S. 649 already contains the Veterans Gun Ban, which could send you to prison for 15 years for selling, raffling or gifting a firearm in America, while not realizing that the recipient was disqualified in some way – say, for being a military veteran with PTSD or for being a habitual user of marijuana (for medical purposes),” Gun Owners of America warned in a recent Action Alert.

The Paul-Cruz-Lee filibuster of a motion to proceed with legislation on the Senate floor is currently the only viable opposition to the effort by Obama and Democrats in Congress to deny Americans their rights under the Constitution.

“By filibustering — opposing the motion to proceed on S. 649 –- Paul, Cruz and Lee can hold the line against gun control for the moment,” explains AmmoLand. “And if they hold the filibuster and prevent Reid from getting the 60 votes he needs to break it, gun owners win the first battle in the Obama administration’s war on gun owners.”

Being from TX, I know a bit about Ted Cruz - newly elected Tea Party Jr. Senator, that "won" largely b/c his main GOP rival Dewhurst was branded as a "moderate", and some former football player-turned ESPN analyst(Craig James) was thrown into the mix to help split the votes somewhat. IOW, he's just another fresh face playing the role of "good cop" to give the self-professing "conservatives" and "patriots" a voice...nothing more, nothing less.

Rand Paul - endorsed Romney for President last year. Need we say more?

OBAMA LIES TO HELP PUSH GUN CONTROL!!!

Obama: Newtown Shooter Gunned Down 20 Children With 'Fully Automatic Weapon'

At a fundraiser last night in San Francisco, President Barack Obama said that the Newtown killer gunned down 20 children using a "fully automatic weapon." From the official transcript, provided by the White House:

Now, over the next couple of months, we’ve got a couple of issues:  gun control.  (Applause.)  I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon -- by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly. 

According to the prosecutor, Stephen J. Sedensky III, the killer, Adam Lanza, "killed all 26 victims inside Sandy Hook Elementary School with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle before taking his own life with a Glock 10 mm handgun. He says Lanza had another loaded handgun with him inside the school as well as three, 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster," ABC previously reported.

Each of the guns used is a semi-automatic weapon, and not one is an automatic weapon.

So either Obama is wrong--or he revealed something last night about the massacre that hasn't yet been known.

Even worse, it looks like Obama isn't going anywhere(at least for awhile) - don't expect any kind of "impeachment" proceedings on him either(unless he decides to cross the lines against his puppetmasters, that is).

Mayor Against Illegal Guns Busted For Demanding Gay Sex At Gunpoint

Another hypocrite politician, a member of Mayor Bloomberg's 'Mayors Against Illegal Guns' group, has been busted for demanding drunken gay sex at gunpoint from a young man who looked to Mayor James Schiliro of Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania as a 'father figure'. Schiliro has since been dropped from Mayor Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns group, whose slogan is "The time has come to Demand Action." I have to wonder if they meant that so literally? Will Mayor Bloomberg soon announce a new group for mayors, “Mayors Against Mayors Using Illegal Guns to Demand Gay Sex"? Screenshot below from Mayor Bloombergs Mayors Against Illegal Guns website with much more below.

Think that this couldn't get any more despicable? We have only just begun. After having a Marcus Hook police officer 'deliver' the 20-year old victim to the mayor's home, the following took place according to court documents.:

“Schiliro asked the victim if (Schiliro) could perform oral sex on the (20-year-old.) Schiliro made the request repeatedly … 20 to 30 times throughout the time the victim was at the residence,” the affidavit states.  Schiliro “became very distraught” after the young man refused his requests, the affidavit states.

During the encounter, Schiliro produced three different handguns, each time waving it around recklessly inside the house. Schiliro discharged one of the firearms into some papers on the floor in a room at the rear of the house.

The 20-year-old told authorities that Schiliro described him as a hostage, and directed his movements by pointing the handgun at various places within the residence, according to the affidavit.

Part of the county investigation included a search of Schiliro’s home, conducted on March 7. Among the items recovered was a bullet from a wall inside the house. The 9 mm projectile was later determined to have been fired from one of eight firearms that Schiliro sold on Feb. 23, the morning after the encounter.

I'm not saying this is propaganda or anything, but I tried to cross-check this story on the Yahoo search engine, and the only other news sites that reported this were nothing more than SECONDARY sites(which are primarily internet and nothing more), and they themselves CREDITED the Weekly Standard for this.

Again, I'm not saying Obama didn't say this comment, but at the same time even the Obama-worshipping MSM would have picked up on this comment and ran away with it too b/c they themselves have been heavily pushing gun control on the public.

Results on Yahoo - other news sources don't seem to verify the Weekly Standard's.

Well, I'm rather surprised "red" states like Mississippi and Wyoming have enacted more laws tightening gun restrictions, on the contrary. But nonetheless, we'll see where all of this goes...

Despite gun-control push, more states have cut back on gun regulations since Newtown

Despite a major push from the White House, more states have cut back on gun regulations rather than pass gun-control reforms in the wake of the mass shootings in Newtown, Conn., The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

Five states—New York, Colorado, Mississippi, Utah and Wyoming—have enacted seven new laws tightening restrictions on guns since Dec. 14, when a gunman shot 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School before turning the weapon on himself. A sixth state, Connecticut, passed the toughest gun laws in the nation this week, banning some types of semi-automatic weapons and requiring all gun buyers to undergo background checks before purchases. (Gov. Dan Malloy is expected to sign the bill into law on Thursday.)

Meanwhile, legislators in 10 states pushed through 17 new laws that broaden gun rights. One such law, in Arkansas, allows staff and faculty to carry concealed weapons on university campuses. Utah lawmakers, meanwhile, passed a law to allow people prohibited from buying weapons for mental health reasons to petition the state to be able to purchase a gun.

Yesterday at the TX Rangers home opener here in North Texas, Robbie Parker and his family attended the game b/c he threw out the first ceremonial opening pitch.

While my heart and sympathy goes out to the victims of the Newtown shootings, NONE of these victims's families should be going around to baseball games nor any other entertainment events glamourizing themselves like this. It's as if the globalist thugs are finding more subtle ways to push gun control on the public.

http://news.yahoo.com/rangers-fan-honors-daughter-killed-massacre-211226140--mlb.html
Rangers fan honors daughter killed in massacre
4/5/13



ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Longtime Texas Rangers fan Robbie Parker grabbed former star catcher Ivan Rodriguez in a long embrace and didn't seem to want to let go.

A few months ago, Parker never would have imagined crying on the shoulder of one of his boyhood heroes. But a lot has happened since December and here he was, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch in honor of his 6-year-old daughter, Emilie, who was among the 26 killed in the mass school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

So when Parker tossed the ball all the way to the 14-time All-Star's glove — he'd spent the last few weeks worrying about making a good throw — he held on tight when he and Rodriguez met halfway between the mound and home plate, his wife and two daughters watching nearby and thousands standing and cheering at sold-out Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on Friday.

"It was really tough to try to keep my emotions under control there," Parker said a few minutes later, still fighting back tears. "It was pretty amazing."

I truly see a huge deception going on...

Don’t know about hired actors per se, but there certainly has been a fair share of alleged victims of a major event caught LYING about it. Have a look at some of the 9/11 anomalies that have come out. That I can believe. It’s fallen human nature. Gets me wondering about wheat and tares.

Inside Tania Head’s Terrible 9/11 Lie: ‘The Woman Who Wasn’t There’
Apr 6, 2012 3:50 PM EDT

Tania Head surfaced after 9/11 with an astonishing tale of survival and loss.  Her story of barely escaping death in the south tower, and losing her husband, Dave, in the north tower, inspired everyone who heard it. She cultivated friendships with fellow survivors and became president of the influential World Trade Center Survivors’ Network. But she had a secret that, when it was finally revealed seven years later, would stun and crush the courageous people whom she claimed to champion. In this excerpt from Robin Gaby Fisher and Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr.’s new book The Woman Who Wasn’t There, the authors chronicle the months and days before her lie unraveled.

Nearly 3,000 victims of 9/11 don’t show up as dead in Social Security records
·   By Thomas Hargrove of Scripps Howard News Service
·   Posted July 9, 2011 at noon

WASHINGTON — A New York congresswoman who represents Manhattan wants answers to why nearly 3,000 victims of the 9/11 terrorists attacks weren’t reported in the Social Security Administration’s official list of deceased Americans.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., said her staff started making inquiries after the errors in the federal Death Master File (DMF) were detected by Scripps Howard News Service. The file is a public record intended to protect families of the deceased from identity theft and other types of fraud.
“While nearly 3,000 individuals were killed on Sept. 11th, the list does not show an increase in numbers from the typical DMF daily average,” Maloney said. “A sampling of those names did not yield any matches in the DMF and confirms their apparent absence.”

She said her staff has contacted the Social Security Administration, the New York State Department of Health and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, only to receive “conflicting answers as to why there is a lack of reporting on this matter.”

Phony 9/11 Deaths

As estimates of the death toll rose in the days following the 9/11 attacks, enormous amounts of sympathy and media attention flowed out towards those who had lost loved ones in the attack. Those who had participated in rescue efforts were hailed as national heroes. But simultaneously, many people (motivated, perhaps, by a desire for sympathy or attention) fabricated tales of phony heroics and lost loved ones in the weeks and months following 9/11. Listed are a few of the more notable cases of these phony 9/11 tales:

·   Maureen Curry of Vancouver, Canada reported that her daughter, Carolyn Burdz, had been killed in the attack. She also complained that her employer had refused her request for bereavement leave. Friends and sympathetic politicians quickly raised over $2000 for her. But in reality her daughter was alive and well and living in Winnipeg. The two had been estranged for years.

·   Susan Arroyo of Tennessee lied about the 9/11 death of her sister. She later explained that she did so in order to help re-establish ties with her brother (seems like a roundabout way to make peace with your brother... but never mind).

·   The 9/11 death of a member of an internet gaming community was announced online to the other players. The prankster behind the false announcement turned out to be the player himself.

·   Cyril Kendall claimed that his son Wilfred died in the attacks on the World Trade Center, for which he received $160,000 in compensation from the Red Cross. One problem. He didn't have a son named Wilfred. But he did manage to buy a shiny new car with the Red Cross money to help assuage his grief over the death of his nonexistent son. He was later sentenced to 11 to 33 years in prison.

·   A member of the online LiveJournal community who went under the name Flashman, but whose real name was supposedly Anthony Joseph Pereira, was said to have died rushing into one of the burning World Trade Center towers in an attempt to save people. A friend of his, Rhyein, posted the announcement of his death, sparking an outpouring of online grief and commiseration. In fact, Flashman had never died, because he had never existed to begin with. He was the fictitious creation of Rhyein, the woman who had posted the announcement of his death. She chose the name 'Anthony Joseph Pereira' because it was the original name of Joe Perry of Aerosmith, her favorite band.

·   Daniel McCarthy told people at a resort casino in Lake Tahoe where he was getting married that he was an ex-NYC policeman who had been trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center for 79 hours after he tried to carry a pregnant woman on his back out of the building. He said his partner, Dominick Impertore, died at his side. The NYC Police denied he had ever been employed by them.

·   Sanae Zahani, a 20-year-old woman from Morocco, gained national attention for the search for her sister who, so she said, had been working in a bond-trading firm inside the World Trade Center. She even told her story on the Rosie O'Donnell show. But Zahani never had a sister who lived in New York. Zahani disappeared when this awkward flaw in her story was discovered.

‘I Don’t Understand It’: McCain Blasts GOP Threat to Filibuster Gun Bill
4/7/13

Sen. John McCain on Sunday once again found himself at odds with Republican colleagues Rand Paul and Ted Cruz when he slammed their intention to filibuster any gun legislation.

"I don't understand it," the Arizona Republican said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "The purpose of the United States Senate is to debate and to vote and to let the people know where we stand."

A number of GOP senators, including Paul (Ky.), Cruz (Texas), Mike Lee of Utah and Marco Rubio of Florida, signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) vowing to filibuster any gun bills.

"I don't understand it," McCain repeated. "What are we afraid of?...If this issue is as important as all of us think it is...why not take it up and debate?"

He added that "everybody wants the same goal, to keep the guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally disabled."

Shop that sold gun to Newtown mom loses license
4/5/13

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A shop that sold a gun to the Newtown school shooter's mother has lost its federal firearms license.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives revoked the license of Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor in December. The agency, which confirmed the revocation to reporters Thursday, didn't say why.

Authorities raided the store for undisclosed reasons shortly after the December school shootings in which Adam Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School. He also shot to death his mother, Nancy, at their home. Authorities say he fired 154 shots with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle inside the school, then killed himself with a Glock handgun.

Nancy Lanza purchased a Bushmaster from Riverview, according to a person close to the investigation into the school shooting who spoke on condition of anonymity because the probe is continuing. It could not be confirmed whether the Bushmaster was the one used in the shooting.

Shop owner David LaGuercia said in December that Nancy Lanza bought a gun from him years ago, but he couldn't remember what kind. LaGuercia said at the time he was cooperating with law enforcement.

"There is nothing more devastating than the loss of a child," LaGuercia said in a statement in December. "We are absolutely appalled that the product that we sold several years ago would be used in this type of horrendous crime. Our hearts go out to the victims and the families."

His wife, Shelley Clemens, said Friday that she and her husband still don't know why the ATF revoked his firearms license. She said the store remains open selling ammunition and other items that aren't firearms while LaGuercia appeals the revocation.

"They just came in the store after Sandy Hook, raided the store and took away the license," she said, referring further questions to her husband. LaGuercia, of Agawam, Mass., didn't return phone messages Friday.

ATF officials said federal firearms license holders receive a copy of the violations report before a revocation is initiated and are made aware of the violations again during the hearing process. They have 60 days to appeal and in this case they chose not to do so, officials said.

The weapons used in the shooting had all apparently been purchased by Nancy Lanza, prosecutor Stephen J. Sedensky III said last week when search warrants were unsealed showing the Lanzas' home was packed with weapons and ammunition. Clemens said in December that store records show one gun was sold to Lanza.

Riverview Gun Sales is about 15 miles north of Hartford and about 65 miles northeast of Newtown. In December, its website described it as a place that sold a variety of rifles and pistols, including Bushmaster and Glock, but on Friday, the website's links to specific guns indicated they were not available.

The shop also sold high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones authorities say were used by Adam Lanza. In a law passed this week, Connecticut banned the sale or purchase of magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

Senate to cast first gun-control votes on Thursday
4/9/13

By Richard Cowan and John Whitesides

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate will cast its first vote on President Barack Obama's gun-control proposals on Thursday, but Democratic Leader Harry Reid said he was unsure if the bill could gain the 60 votes it needs to overcome Republican procedural hurdles.

Reid called on Republicans to drop their attempt to block debate on the gun legislation, but Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said there was no bipartisan support for the effort.

Obama's proposals to expand background checks for gun buyers and ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines were sparked by the December massacre of 20 children and six adults at a school in Newtown, Connecticut.

The administration has struggled to gain support for gun legislation in Congress in the face of intense opposition from the National Rifle Association, the powerful gun lobby. To push the case for action to curb gun violence, some families of the Newtown victims were brought in from Connecticut on Air Force One to lobby Republican and Democratic senators on Capitol Hill this week.

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Republican Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania are trying to hammer out a compromise on background checks, which appears to be Obama's best hope for meaningful legislation, but Reid said he would not wait to see if they could reach a deal.

"We're moving forward on this bill. The American people deserve a vote on this legislation," Reid told reporters after a lunch meeting with his fellow Democrats to discuss strategy.

He said he hoped for an agreement in the meantime on background checks that would be offered as an amendment to the base bill, which was passed by the Democratic-led Senate Judiciary Committee on a party-line vote.

McConnell said he and his fellow conservatives would press ahead with the filibuster. "The one (Reid) indicated he was going to try to move to clearly has no bipartisan support," McConnell said.

Another centerpiece of Obama's efforts, the renewal of a ban on the sale of military-style assault weapons, appears headed to defeat, and a proposed 10-bullet limit on ammunition magazines also looks to be in trouble.

Obama, who has called the day of the Newtown massacre the worst of his presidency, traveled to Connecticut on Monday to appeal for action in Congress. But a Senate aide said there is strong, bipartisan support at this point for only two proposals: a crackdown on gun trafficking and school security improvements.

The gun legislation will need 60 votes to break the Republican filibuster. Democrats control only 55 Senate votes, meaning Republican support will be needed to move to debate and a vote on passage.

On Tuesday, Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona repeated his earlier criticism of the effort to block the bill and called on his fellow Republicans to allow a full debate.

"It's incomprehensible to me that we would not move forward with debate and amendments on an issue this important to the American people," McCain told reporters.

Conn. Father’s Stunning Claim: Son’s School Is Teaching That Americans Don’t Have the Right to Bear Arms
4/9/13

A Connecticut father is accusing his son's school district of teaching children that Americans do not have a constitutional right to bear arms. Steven Boibeaux of Bristol, Connecticut, is claiming that his child, an eighth-grader at Northeast Middle School, was given a social studies worksheet that is anti-Second Amendment in nature -- or, at the least, opposed to the conservative view of the provision.

In an interview with Fox News' Todd Starnes, Boibeaux said that he's "appalled" and that the school seems to be "trying to indoctrinate our kids." The worksheet in question, published by Instructional Fair, is entitled, "The Second Amendment Today," and it allegedly proclaims that American citizens do not have the right to guns.

"The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms," it purportedly reads. "The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional."

When it comes to interpreting the Second Amendment, the worksheet provides additional parameters through which the constitutional provision should be viewed. Starnes explains:

Quote
The worksheet, published by Instructional Fair, goes on to say that the Second Amendment is not incorporated against the states.

"This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states," the worksheet reads. "So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws."

According to the document, the Second Amendment "only provides the right of a state to keep an armed National Guard."

Boibeaux also alleges that the teacher told the class that the Constitution is a "living document" and the worksheet seems to drive this point home, noting that "the interpretation changes to meet the needs of the times."

"I'm more than a little upset about this. It's not up to the teacher to determine what the Constitution means," the father told Starnes. "I just don't appreciate this as a parent. I expect teachers to teach my kids and tell the truth - not what they think their point of view is."

This report comes as debate over classroom studies across America -- and CSCOPE and Common Core-aligned curriculum, in particular -- rages.

Senators on verge of deal on background checks
4/9/13

WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of both parties say a bipartisan deal is imminent that would expand the requirement for federal background checks for more gun purchases.

An agreement could boost President Barack Obama's prospects for curbing firearms violence, though his effort's ultimate fate in Congress remains unclear.

Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Chuck Schumer of New York said they were on the verge of an agreement. An aide to Republican Sen. Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania said they appear close.

Several Senate aides and lobbyists said the compromise would extend background checks to transactions at gun shows and online. They and Toomey's aide declined to be identified to discuss private talks.

Manchin and Toomey were expected to announce their agreement on Wednesday.

Teachers are just doing what they are being forced to do, which is to promote the federal government's lies. It's not teachers that are saying that stuff. It's the government who is pushing it on school districts, under threat of losing federal dollars.

Quote

According to the document, the Second Amendment "only provides the right of a state to keep an armed National Guard."

Now THAT is right out of the federal government's official claims. It's the ONLY way they can justify their illegal National Guard over a militia, which is to say the right extends only to the military, not citizens, when the reality is that the amendment was designed to protect against federal tyranny against it's citizenry!

No, it's not the teachers, or even principles, it's the school boards that are bowing to the pressures of the federal government.

Quote
Boibeaux said that he's "appalled" and that the school seems to be "trying to indoctrinate our kids."

Again, it's not the schools perse' that want to indoctrinate the kids, but yes, indoctrinate is exactly what they are doing, and have been doing for decades.

Senate votes to open debate on gun control
4/11/13

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate cleared the way on Thursday for an emotional, weeks-long debate on proposals to curb gun violence, rejecting an effort by conservative Republicans to block consideration of gun-control legislation prompted by December's Newtown school massacre.

The Senate voted 68-31 to open debate on President Barack Obama's proposals to expand background checks for gun buyers, tighten restrictions on gun trafficking and increase funding for school security.

The Senate easily cleared the 60-vote hurdle needed to break a Republican filibuster on a bill that has sparked intense lobbying on both sides, including families of the Connecticut victims as well as the powerful gun lobby the National Rifle Association.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-04-11/mental-illness-didn-t-kill-rick-warren-s-son-a-gun-did-.html
4/11/13
Mental Illness Didn't Kill Rick Warren's Son. A Gun Did.

The Washington Post reports today that the death of Pastor Rick Warren's son, Matthew Warren, has "spurred discussion within church communities about how a fervent belief among evangelicals in the power of prayer and dependence on God and Jesus for healing might stifle congregants from talking about mental illness or seeking help for themselves or family members."

One of the nation's most popular and influential pastors, Warren last weekend sent an e-mail to followers announcing that his 27-year-old son had killed himself. Warren was explicit about his son's mental illness, citing Matthew's "dark holes of depression and even suicidal thoughts. In spite of America's best doctors, meds, counselors, and prayers for healing, the torture of mental illness never subsided."

What the grieving father has not yet mentioned was how Matthew died. Mental illness may have plagued the younger Warren, but it didn't kill him. A gun did.

The incidence of mental illness in the U.S. is roughly on par with other developed nations. The availability of guns is not.

There were more than 19,000 firearms suicides in the U.S. in 2010; guns were responsible for about half of all suicides. For Americans under 40, suicide is a leading cause of death, and the presence of a firearm in the home is a serious risk factor.

In a 2008 article in the New England Journal of Medicine, Harvard researchers Matthew Miller and David Hemenway wrote:

"The empirical evidence linking suicide risk in the United States to the presence of firearms in the home is compelling. There are at least a dozen U.S. case–control studies in the peer-reviewed literature, all of which have found that a gun in the home is associated with an increased risk of suicide. The increase in risk is large, typically 2 to 10 times that in homes without guns, depending on the sample population (e.g., adolescents vs. older adults) and on the way in which the firearms were stored. The association between guns in the home and the risk of suicide is due entirely to a large increase in the risk of suicide by firearm that is not counterbalanced by a reduced risk of nonfirearm suicide. Moreover, the increased risk of suicide is not explained by increased psychopathologic characteristics, suicidal ideation, or suicide attempts among members of gun-owning households."

One reason guns are such a high risk factor is that many suicides are impulsive. According to one study, one quarter of serious, nonfatal suicide attempts took place less than five minutes after the decision to commit suicide.

The Los Angeles Times reports today that authorities believe the younger Warren was probably not the owner of the gun that he used to kill himself. It's unclear how much planning or forethought he put into his suicide.

Rick Warren, who has sold 30 million copies of his book "The Purpose Driven Life," is using his influence to open the door to a much-needed discussion of mental illness among evangelicals. He deserves thanks as well as sympathy. Perhaps in time he can also initiate a discussion about the role of guns in suicide.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Open the door to a much-needed discussion of mental illness among evangelicals? Not anymore, now that Warren blamed the gun bought illegally by his son.

Somebody better forward this to Capitol Hill and Rick Warren...(and Texas has one of the LOOSEST, if not THE loosest gun laws in the country)

http://oudaily.com/news/2013/apr/10/community-college-stabbing/
4/10/13
Man stabs 14 at community college, two critically injured

CYPRESS, Texas (AP) — A man accused of stabbing more than a dozen people at a suburban Houston community college chose his victims at random, authorities said Wednesday, going from one floor to another as he used a razor utility knife to slice people in the neck and face.

Neighbors and the grandmother of Dylan Quick were at a loss to explain the attack on the Lone Star Community College campus in Cypress — an attack that authorities say the 20-year-old had fantasized about for years. All 14 of the people who were injured were expected to recover.

“To me he’s just always been a good kid, loving. He’s close to his family. He’s close to his mother and father,” Dolores Quick, his 85-year-old grandmother, said in a telephone interview from her home in Dearborn, Mich. “It’s just really torn me up. I’m just so sad for everybody.”

She said she doesn’t see her grandson on a regular basis, but that she talked to him on the phone every so often.

Officials at the school and people who lived in Quick’s middle class neighborhood described him as well-liked and friendly, but also withdrawn.

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said while Quick has been cooperative and forthcoming with investigators, the motive for the attack was still a mystery.

“He has shared with us that he’s had fantasies about stabbing people since the age of 8,” Garcia said. “He did share that he had been planning this event for some time.”

Classes resumed Wednesday at the bustling campus where more than 18,000 students take courses. Students and others were overheard talking about the attack, riveted by the sequence of events that left 14 injured, two critically. Students said workers were seen Wednesday morning washing away blood stains from outside the school’s health science building.

Campus President Audre Levy said Quick had worked on the school’s library for about a year and that “the library staff had fond things to say of him” and that many of the library staff were “very surprised” by the allegations.

“There are no signs that he was a problem student. Many of the faculty who had him reported he was a good student,” she said.

The attack took place on the first and second floors of the health science building, but investigators weren’t yet certain on which floor it began. They were working Wednesday to piece together the sequence of events.

Quick slashed at his victims with a razor utility knife, and prosecutors said a scalpel was found in his backpack. A bloody knife tip was removed from the chest of one of the victims, according to prosecutors.

All but two of the victims had been released from local hospitals by Wednesday.

Levy said college police were notified of the attack at 11:13 a.m. Tuesday and that Quick was taken into custody at 11:17 a.m. Authorities said students assisted by tackling Quick and holding him down outside the health science building until police arrived.

Quick remained in custody Wednesday and a spokeswoman with the Harris County district attorney’s office said no additional charges were expected. She said Quick has been ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation.

Court records did not list an attorney for Quick, and his parents did not return several phone calls Wednesday seeking comment.

Michael Lincoln, who lives next door to Quick and his parents, recalled borrowing a ladder from the family in January so he could remove some branches that had fallen on his roof after a storm. Quick lent him the ladder but then proceeded to use it to remove the branches himself, saying, “That’s what neighbors are for,” according to Lincoln.

“I never would have expected (the attack) from him. I guess you never really know anybody,” Lincoln said.

Dolores Quick said she had spoken with her son, Dylan Quick’s father, earlier this week and he had indicated that the family members “were all OK.”

“It’s just very, very tragic, unbelievable,” she said.

Well, Arizona has open/conceal carry no registration(private purchase- FFL dealers will register a handgun)/permit needed. Not sure you can be much more gun-owner friendly. But in spite of the law here, I've seen what I thought was likely a private citizen open carry a sidearm. ONCE since 2003. And we haven't had citizens taking down criminals with their firearms either like some want to suggest. Most may have a gun, but a surprising number of people simply don't exercise that right, so criminals are able to stab a bunch of people in spite of gun laws, and not a single citizen be armed as they are stabbing away.

They going to start registering knife owners too? Roll Eyes

Civil war battle lines being drawn as Magpul, Colt, Beretta and other gun manufacturers relocate to pro-Constitution states

A civil war looks likely to break out in America, and it will pit gun rights advocates (people who love liberty) against gun control zealots (people who hate freedom and love tyranny). The battle lines are being drawn right now as gun manufacturers are leaving anti-Constitution states like Connecticut and Colorado and relocating to pro-Constitution states like Texas and Arizona.

Why does this matter? Because in effect, the anti-Constitution states are disarming themselves by expatriating weapons manufacturers. Thus, they are eliminating their own weapons infrastructure and leaving themselves relatively defenseless should a civil war occur.

States like Texas and Wyoming, where gun manufacturers are increasingly moving and setting up shop, are simultaneously building up a massive arms infrastructure that may ultimately spell the difference between victory and defeat in a civil war.

This is the tragic truth of the current anti-America, anti-Constitution, criminal government takeover happening in multiple states across our Republic right now: those who hate liberty are disarming themselves.

Colt moving to Texas, others likely to follow
If the majority of people in states like New York, Connecticut and Colorado wish to be disarmed slaves living as subjects to a tyrannical government, then they are also going to see more gun owners leaving those states and seeking new lives in gun-friendly states like Texas, Montana, Arizona and Idaho. I can tell you firsthand that here in Texas, we shoot big, heavy firearms on the weekend (.50 BMG), and if the local sheriff shows up, it's only because they want some trigger time, too! (You gotta pick the right county, though. Stay away from Travis County at all costs...)

Because Texas is a state that upholds the Second Amendment rights of its citizens, Texas is already attracting both gun manufacturers and gun-friendly citizens who are relocating there. For example, firearms maker Colt is leaving Connecticut and moving to Texas, bringing valuable skills, hardware, manufacturing equipment and jobs to Texas.

Magpul industries, makers of 30-round rifle magazines, also says it's leaving Colorado and looking for a destination more aligned with the Constitutional rights of American citizens.

Such moves are not only valuable for the Texas economy; it also means that once the Civil War is unleashed in America and the collectivist anti-American, anti-Constitution leftist gun grabbers try to force national disarmament at gunpoint, states like Texas will be cranking out Colt rifles and putting them into the hands of freedom fighters who will send as much lead down range as is necessary to reinforce the point that the Bill of Rights is not negotiable.

Texas also controls much of the national energy supply
If leftists living in treasonous states try to push their criminal agenda onto the entire nation, let 'em figure out how to live without energy, too. Texas not only has the guns, you see... it's also got the energy. Over one-third of America's oil and natural gas flows through Texas-based refineries and ports. Any attempt to mess with Texas means the rest of the country won't get its energy needs met.

Texas can defend its resources with -- guess what? -- citizens armed with rifles made in Texas, loaded with high-capacity magazines made in Texas, shooting bullets loaded in Texas in full alignment with the Bill of Rights that's defended in Texas.

That's why every time another criminal state government (like that of Connecticut) passes another unconstitutional law stripping its own citizens of the right to own firearms, I cheer when the gun manufacturers in that state announce they're moving out. If Boulder, Colorado wants to fulfill its socialist dreams of total government tyranny, then we all welcome MagPul exiting Boulder and setting up shop in a pro-Constitution zone where the company's many talents will be fully appreciated.

Traitorous states are disarming themselves
I love the idea that all these companies are moving out of wannabe communist cities like Boulder, or traitorous anti-Constitution states like Connecticut. Because in truth, we want the anti-Constitution states to have no weapons manufacturing infrastructure. It will make them easier to defeat in a military campaign designed to free the enslaved citizens living in those states from tyranny rule.

This fact is multiplied even further by the fact that many U.S. gun and ammo manufacturers are REFUSING to sell equipment to anti-Constitution governments, including the state government of Connecticut. The full list is posted at The Police Loophole.

It's a huge list of weapons manufacturers and retailers, including Barrett, Midway USA, Cheaper Than Dirt, Larue Tactical, Rock River Arms, Bravo Company USA and more.

What this means is that if the traitorous, criminal federal government attempts to overrun the People with the 2 billion rounds of ammo DHS has been stockpiling, they're going to find themselves outgunned and out-supplied by the private gun and ammo manufacturing and distribution industry which will absolutely NOT sell any equipment to the federal government.

By the way, private individuals are buying up hundreds of millions of rounds of ammo each week, vastly out-pacing DHS stockpiling. On top of that, there's also the fact that brain-dead DHS employees are too stupid to know how to use firearms effectively in the first place. If DHS hands all their stockpiled guns to TSA agents, for example, they're far more likely to shoot off their own toes than wage anything resembling a tactical war. They would be almost instantly out-maneuvered and out-gunned by veterans, hunters, sheriff's deputies and privately-trained citizens.

It is important to bring all collaborators to justice
It's going to be hilarious seeing all the governors and state representatives of the traitorous anti-gun states trying to defend themselves against armed arrest squads when they have no weapons.

I'm just curious how all these traitorous lawmakers think they're going to defend themselves against real justice once the shooting begins. Are they so delusional that they think nobody is recording their names and votes? To be on the record voting to destroy the Second Amendment is nothing less than treason. To cast such a vote in a nation founded on armed resistance to tyranny is nothing less than suicide.

Because the anti-Constitution criminals have disarmed themselves, the pro-Constitution justice teams will be able to march right in, arrest these traitors for sedition and round them up for a mass trial where they can join their fellow traitors from Colorado, New York and California (among other states).

For the purposes of law and justice, it will be very important to make sure that all those who have actively violated the Bill of Rights be arrested, charged and brought to trial for their crimes. Historically, the typical punishment for those found guilty of acts of treason against their own nation has been the death penalty (i.e. firing squad). (I'm not calling for that, nor condoning that. I'm merely pointing out actual history.) Even further, those who have actively conspired to destroy America's Constitution and Bill of Rights are, by the government's own definition, "enemy combatants," meaning they may be held and imprisoned under the rules of war.

It's time we all began to understand that lawmakers who vote for unconstitutional gun control measures in America are, by definition, "enemy combatants" who are engaged in actual warfare against America. They have moved the nation far past the era of polite debate. These traitors now have put guns to all our heads, demanding we comply or be arrested. In New York and elsewhere, many innocent citizens have already been thrown in jail for the "crime" of exercising their constitutional rights. The war against liberty has begun, and the battle lines are being drawn as gun and ammo manufacturers relocate to states that choose to side with the Constitution rather than outright tyranny.

You would be wise to make a similar choice. If you are a person who believe in anything resembling liberty -- owning a gun, growing your own food, homeschooling your children -- you will be arrested and imprisoned during the civil war if you stay in the criminal anti-Constitution states.

On the other hand, those very same activities will be openly welcomed in pro-Constitution states that actually abide by the law of the land. And it is those states that will have the hardware advantage once the fighting starts.

For your convenience, here's a list of criminal, traitorous anti-Constitution states vs. relatively pro-Constitution states: (some states are not listed because they do not neatly fit into either category)
