Sarah Brady Admits Gun Control Group Not Interested In Prosecuting Criminals

Comments Off on Sarah Brady Admits Gun Control Group Not Interested In Prosecuting Criminals

Manasquan, NJ –-( In a stunning admission during an interview on National Public Radio, Sarah Brady, Chairwoman and Co-Founder of the “Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence” , or as I like to call them, ” The Brady Bunch”, publicly admitted that her group, and presumably by default all other Anti Gun Groups, aren’t concerned with actually prosecuting those who engage in criminal conduct.

They are not interested in prosecuting criminals caught lying on a background check form, 4473, in an attempt to straw purchase a firearm, an act which is a felony.

From the interview, mark 2:34:

SIMON: But again, let me get you to address the reservation some people have, that we really have good common sense gun control laws on the books now and they’re only sporadically successfully enforced.

BRADY: Well, in the first place, I don’t think many people feel that way unless you’re talking about, are people prosecuted? I have heard complaints from the gun lobby about that. Because if they’re trying to purchase a gun and they were not able to, what the law does now – as far as it enforces it – is to not allow them to get a gun. And our main concern is not to prosecute these people as much as it is to have their complete background checked, so that anybody cannot buy a gun if they’re not qualified. (emphasis added)

Yet a NT Times article from January 13th this year highlights the fact that nearly 80,000 people committed such a felony, yet only 44 were Prosecuted!

47 percent of those 80,000 people were already convicted felons and 19 percent were wanted fugitives. That is a whopping 66 percent, or almost exactly two thirds of those attempts were committed by people who are already barred by Federal and or State Law from even touching a firearm, let alone trying to purchase one. A 2008 Justice Dept Study found that those who are denied because of a failed background check were significantly more likely to commit a violent crime, even after having been denied.

But are not we being told by “The Enlightened Ones” that we simply must have even more gun control laws on the books? And “this time we mean it!”. ” This time, if we just pass XYZ, all these horrible crimes will simply vanish, and of course “do it for the children”.

Surprisingly for the rabidly Anti Gun NY Times, the article even goes on to accurately report what the NRA and the rest of us has been saying for years now.

Start enforcing the laws already on the books before you start ramming new ones down our throats! (unconstitutionally I might add)


Air Force Academy Cancels July 4th Celebration

Comments Off on Air Force Academy Cancels July 4th Celebration

This blaming everything on the Sequester is getting old, plus it is obvious to most it is a outright lie and instead a purposeful attempt to do things that will hurt the public and catch their attention. And of course blame on the Republicans, which isn’t the truth.

The U.S. Air Force Academy has cancelled its annual July 4th celebration and military officials are blaming it on the sequestration.

“Faced with so many uncertainties about the future budget, we have to look at ways to save money,” said Lt. Col. John Bryan, Director of Public Affairs at the Academy.  ”But for now, we’ve had to cut back on many things we normally would support.”

The community-wide celebration is traditionally held at Falcon Stadium – with barbecues, patriotic music and a fireworks display.

The Air Force Academy spokesman said they hope to celebration the nation’s birthday in 2014.

The Air Force had already canceled the Tunderbirds’ season and halted their traditional flyover during graduation. They also canceled support for air shows, F-22 Raptor demonstration flights, and trade shows.

There have been accusations that the Obama administration is encouraging government entities to make the sequester budgets cuts as painful as possible for the general public.

There was widespread criticism after they shuttered the White House to public tours – disappointing thousands of school children who planned to visit what First Lady Michelle Obama once called “the People’s House.”

A U.S. park ranger told Fox News that the administration overruled plans within the National Park Service to minimize the impact of the sequester.

“Apparently, they want the public to feel the pain,” the ranger said.

The National Park Service is among many federal agencies warning of a major impact from the sequester cuts, which took effect last Friday. The agency has warned of delayed access to portions of Yellowstone and Yosemite national parks, closed campgrounds at Great Smoky Mountains National Park, reduced hours at the Grand Canyon visitor center and other ramifications.

The Obama administration says these cuts must be made in order to make the $85 billion in cuts from Congress’ failure to avert the sequester. At the NPS, the agency was dealing with an across-the-board 5 percent cut. (If our readers really believe this, Steve and I have some bottom land we’d like to sell you at a great price!, lol….this is just one more example of what kind of people we’re dealing with)

BREAKING: Weapons Ban Shot Down, Obama Sends Kerry To U.N. To Pass International Gun Ban

Comments Off on BREAKING: Weapons Ban Shot Down, Obama Sends Kerry To U.N. To Pass International Gun Ban

Folks a Treaty also has to be ratified by 2/3 of the Senate and even more than that, a Treaty MUST be Constitutional as well. A Treaty CAN NOT ban the 2nd amendment even if it’s ratified by 2/3 of the Senate and signed by the President. I might add, the majority of US Citizens WILL NOT tolerate a gun ban.

Do not forget: The federal government may not lawfully circumvent the U.S. Constitution by international treaties.  It may NOT do by Treaty what it is not permitted to do by the U.S. Constitution.

Diane Feinstein’s assault weapon ban may be deader than a doornail, but is the Obama administration trying to bring gun control into the United States via the NRA opposed U.N. Weapons Treaty?

Per the Washington Post.

The National Rifle Association, which is battling a raft of gun control measures on Capitol Hill, also has an international fight on its hand as it gears up to oppose a U.N. treaty designed to restrict the flow of arms to conflict zones.

…The NRA is among the treaty’s most vocal opponents and a founder of the World Forum on Shooting Activities, an international coalition of gun rights activists and gun manufacturers who plan to speak against the treaty.

“What we really object to is the inclusion of civilian firearms within the scope of the ATT,” said Tom Mason, the group’s executive secretary and a lawyer who has represented the NRA at U.N. meetings for nearly two decades. “This is a treaty that really needs to address the transfer of large numbers of military weapons that leads to human rights abuses. We have submitted language that you can define what a civilian firearm is.”

The NRA also argues that the treaty could infringe on gun rights as understood in the United States and could force Americans onto an international registry.

What is a “civilian firearm” in the mind of a UN bureaucrat or the Obama Administration? A pistol? Probably. A Mossberg Tactical Shotgun? Maybe not. An Ar-15? Doubtful. Oh, and don’t even start discussing an international gun registry. A list of gun owners at the government’s fingertips is nothing more than an invitation to try to confiscate every weapon in the country one day. That’s not acceptable today, tomorrow or ever.



New documents reveal Obama administration ‘cooking the books’ to achieve record deportation numbers

Comments Off on New documents reveal Obama administration ‘cooking the books’ to achieve record deportation numbers

Internal documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee show that the Obama administration has been “cooking the books” in order to reach their “record” number of deported illegal immigrants, chairman Rep. said Friday.

Based on the internal U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) documents, the number of removals are actually down, the opposite of what the administration has been claiming.

According to the committee’s review, in 2011 officials at the Department of Homeland Security began including the number of individuals removed through the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP) in its annual removal numbers. ATEP is a program which moves apprehended illegal immigrants to another point along the border.

The committee chair claims that counting those individuals as removals is misleading because there are no repercussions for illegal immigrants who are deported through the program, and they can simply try to re-enter.

“It is dishonest to count illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol along the border as ICE removals,” Smith explained in a statement. “And these ‘removals’ from the Border Patrol program do not subject the illegal immigrant to any penalties or bars for returning to the U.S. This means a single illegal immigrant can show up at the border and be removed numerous times in a single year — and counted each time as a removal.”

Given the new information, the committee’s Republican majority subtracted the ATEP removals from ICE’s deportation totals.

With the ATEP subtraction, in 2011 the estimated 397,000 deportations become approximately 360,000, and the 2012 removals to date drop from about 334,000 to an estimated 263,000, according to the committee estimates. Projections for number of people to be deported by end of the year drops from 400,000 to 315,000 removals.

The new estimates mean that this year the Obama administration’s deportation record is 14 percent below 2008 (which was 369,000) and 19 percent below 2009 (which was 389,000).
