Information Week seems to be unclear on the concept. They are bemoaning the fact that the ATF gun trace system is antiquated and relies of microfiche and manual searching rather than a nice, efficient computerized database.
Yep. And I’ll bet that if they announced an intention to build an illegal database they would lose all their records in a suspicious fire. I could not condone the unlawful destruction of government documents by a mob wielding torches and pitchforks, but I would certainly understand it.
Something to think about. The form you fill out when you purchase a gun is called a Form 4473. The dealer who sold the gun to you is required to keep the paperwork for a minimum of 20 years. If he goes out of business, he has to ship all the 4473s he has to ATF, who put them in their microfiche records.
Do you think that the ATF destroys any records older than 20 years? They should. Maybe we can pass a law mandating that they do.
Bullets need to be controlled like “prescriptions?” I’ve got to go to a doctor to get a prescription for more bullets? Are they insane?
Don’t answer that. We both know that they are insane.
This is Obama’s group, Organizing For America Action. See if you can find them in your area. Do what you can to counter their activities. They want to push gun control. Make sure that your voice is heard by the people they are targeting. We have facts, logic, and the Constitution on our side.
The press conference by the San Bernadino Sheriff’s Office indicates that the police on scene were San Bernadino Count Sheriff personnel, not LAPD
The weapons they displayed are not burned, and are not consistent with having been through a fire. They keep talking about a “pyrotechnic chemical agent,” but if those weapons displayed were the actual weapons from the cabin, there was no actual fire.
The original post will remain up. I don’t send mistakes down the memory hole.
I have a question about the recent killing of the ex-LAPD fugitive in Big Bear, California. (Like all criminal suspects, his name will not be repeated on this blog)
The LAPD is the city police force for the City of Los Angeles. Los Angeles, not surprisingly, is located in Los Angeles County. The two counties touch, but they are emphatically not the same.
In California, a city police officer has jurisdiction only within the city. Outside his jurisdiction he has the same rights and powers as an ordinary citizen, unless the Sheriff gives consent. The only special thing about being a city police officer outside your jurisdiction is that you can still carry a gun. The only thing that would have permitted the LAPD to operate in San Bernadino County is if the SB Sheriff-Coroner gave them permission.
How is it that the LAPD was apparently the lead agency in an attack on a cabin outside of Los Angeles City, in another County? Why wasn’t the San Bernadino Sheriff’s Department in charge of that scene? The SBSD has been contracted to provide law enforcement to the city of Big Bear Lake since 1981.
This is wholly aside from the question of why the LAPD burned down a house around a fugitive rather than surround him and wait for his surrender. That strikes me as murder, plain and simple. I just want to know if the murderers were also outside of their jurisdiction. If the San Bernadino Sheriff-Coroner gave permission for the LAPD to act like they did, then he’s just as guilty.
With nearly 2.5 Million guns sold to law-abiding citizens in January alone, the non-LEO non-military US market dwarfs police sales. These companies know who buys their guns. Let’s get them to choose a side.
GRNC provides the text of the letter and the three email addresses. All you have to do is cut and paste. Let’s see if we can bury these three manufacturers in email. Let’s see if they will stand up for our Second Amendment rights!
Here’s a measure of how out of power the Dems are in North Carolina. The biggest spokesman that they could come up with for the launch of Senator Kay Hagan’s re-election campaign is the Mayor of Charlotte.
Drubbing is an understatement. The NC General Assembly has a 2/3rds majority for Republicans in both the House and Senate. The Governor is a Republican who won with double digits. NC was the only “battleground” state that Obama couldn’t win. By any measure it was a crushing defeat for the Democrat Party.
Let me tell you how Kay Hagan could ensure her defeat. She could come out for any of the gun control proposals being floated. The gun owners of this state, having been lulled to sleep by constant lies that Obama wasn’t anti-gun, are awake and pissed off. We can’t find an AR or an AK for sale anywhere in the state because people bought them all up. Normal capacity magazines are basically unobtainable. Ammo is GONE. The people have voted with their money, and they aren’t voting FOR gun control.
So how does that square with the NC Democrat Party supporting gun control? Call Senator Hagan and ask her if she is marching with the anti-gun NC Democrat Party. Ask her how we can trust her not to turn against us immediately after her re-election? Ask her to publicly denounce all of the gun control proposals her party is proposing, and denounce it now. You can contact her office by phone (on Tuesday) at 202-224-6342. Email her here.

Note the two words missing
to help stop a lynching.
We always knew that CSGV was pro-lynching. We just never knew that they were willing to be up front about it. We’ve got news for you Gun Grabbers. You don’t have a monopoly on news distribution any more. We can and will spread the truth about your lies.
He makes believe that if we just liberated ourselves from the Constitution, we could get the work done. If we had no standards, no limits on the Government, no actual governmental structure, we would be able to get things done. Why is it that tyrants everywhere seem to conflate “the good of the people” with “government getting things done?”
That’s not a claim, Mr. Seidman. That’s a personal guarantee. Your unswerving loyalty to the Constitution does not protect me. It protects you. Because as long as you are sticking to the rules that we’ve agreed upon, I have to stick to those rules as well. The moment you decide to ditch the Constitution and start making up the rules as you go along, the rest of us will feel free to make up a few rules of our own. I can assure you that you won’t like them.
When might makes right, as surely it will when we have no Constitution to describe the limits of our government, I will take great pains to be among the mighty. Best for all concerned that we keep muddling along under the Constitution, alert for would be tyrants on either side who wish to exceed that document’s authority. It’s much safer that way.
People have First Amendment rights. They can pretty much say whatever they like about whatever they want. I’m cool with that. In fact, I’m pretty proud of that. But let’s ignore the Constitutional argument and just look at the practical argument.
As far as I’m concerned, we need to keep him right where he is, reminding American firearm owners with his outrageous disarmament advocacy just exactly why we had a Lexington and Concord in 1775.
Of course he has the right to be a complete and total douche bag. Even complete and total douche bags have Constitutional rights. But beyond that, by being exactly who he is, Piers Morgan is providing us a service. He’s reminding us of why our forefathers shot the Kings men and sent his officers home.
Most anti-gun people are sophisticated enough to avoid outright calls for citizen disarmament. They know that calls for gun bans cause the rest of us to get mad and fight. Piers Morgan, not being from around here, says openly what the gun grabbers are thinking. He screams and shouts from his well defended ivory tower, compounding stupidity with sneering condescension. He has turned himself into the perfect representation of everything that regular Americans hate while at the same time dragging the gun grabbers out from under the rocks into the light.
Regular Americans get pissed off when someone claims to be their moral superior. Regular Americans get a bit upset when obvious foreigners lecture us about how much better it is overseas. Piers Morgan has managed to hit all the buttons at once. Probably because he’s so busy being culturally superior that he hasn’t even bothered to learn anything at all about American culture. He probably doesn’t even think we have a culture.
So yes, let’s ignore the fact that Piers Morgan has a Constitutional right to be a complete and total douche bag. From a practical standpoint he is the gun grabbers worst enemy. We should let him stay just for that reason.
