Illegal gov’t destruction of used ammo alarms gun owners

Comments Off on Illegal gov’t destruction of used ammo alarms gun owners

Well it appears the federal government is buying over a billion rounds of 40 caliber ammo for Homeland Security and 7,000 of those terrible “assault weapons” for them to use, but they are attempting to dry up the ammo supply and gun supply of it’s citizens……Not a good sign.

More evidence surfaced today indicating that the Obama administration is breaking the law and defying official government policy by ordering the destruction of expended brass at military installations. The brass is often used by civilian gun owners to make their own ammunition.

Gun rights enthusiasts often make their own ammunition in a process known as “reloading,” the practice of taking the brass from once-fired used bullets to make homemade ammo.

National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea reports on his blog that not only is the government destroying such used brass at Fort Drum, as reported Friday, but allegedly at Camp LeJeune as well.

When the administration attempted to destroy the expended brass in 2009, two U.S. senators, Jon Tester and Max Baucus, wrote a letter of complaint to the Defense Logistics Agency in 2010, after which they were told by the Department of Defense that the practice had been stopped.

The problem, however, is that what the Defense Department had been doing up until that point was against the law. The law clearly states that once-fired small arms cartridge cases are to be “made available intact on the open market.” In other words, expended, used ammunition cartridges are not to be destroyed but sold to citizens.

However, apparently the Defense Department was merely telling the senators what they wanted to hear. The illegal practice of destroying the used cartridges has continued.

If ‘Assault Weapons’ Are Bad…Why Does DHS Want to Buy 7,000 of Them for ‘Personal Defense’?

The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” (PDW) — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians. The solicitation, originally posted on June 7, 2012, comes to light as the Obama administration is calling for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.

Citing a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP), Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com reports that DHS is asking for the 7,000 “select-fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” The term select-fire means the weapon can be both semi-automatic and automatic. Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.

The RFP describes the firearm as “Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) – 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearm suitable for personal defense use in close quarters and/or when maximum concealment is required.” Additionally, DHS is asking for 30 round magazines that “have a capacity to hold thirty (30) 5.56x45mm NATO rounds.”

Republican New York state Sen. Greg Ball also issued a press release this week bringing attention to the weapons purchase request.

Gun Bill Suicide for Dems Seeking Re-election

Comments Off on Gun Bill Suicide for Dems Seeking Re-election

Republican Sen. John Barrasso said he doubts Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will bring most of Obama’s anti-Second Amendment proposals to the floor this session.

“He has six Democrats up for election in two years in states where the president received fewer than 42 percent of the votes,” Barrasso said on CNN. “And he doesn’t want his Democrats to have to choose between their own constituents and the president’s positions.”

Barrasso said Americans are more worried about the economy and the national debt despite CNN’s Candy Crowley’s assertion that they are fixated on rolling back the Second Amendment.

Although White House senior adviser David Plouffe believes outlawing firearms will be a tough sell, he told CNN it remains at the top of Obama’s political to-do list.

“I think there are 60 votes in the Senate, 218 votes in the House, if the process can just play itself out and we can really get votes on some of these things,” Plouffe said. “But it’s going to be hard work.”

On Saturday, former president Bill Clinton, who forced the first so-called assault weapons ban on the American people, told Democrat insiders Obama’s anti-Second Amendment push may amount to suicide for Democrats.

Clinton told a joint meeting of the Obama National Finance Committee and a group of business leaders that passing the 1994 federal assault weapons ban took out over a dozen Democrats in the 1994 midterms and sent then-Speaker of the House Tom Foley packing.

“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton warned Democrat activists and financiers. “A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things. I know because I come from this world.”

“A lot of these people … all they’ve got is their hunting and their fishing,” he said. “Or they’re living in a place where they don’t have much police presence. Or they’ve been listening to this stuff [advocacy for the Second Amendment] for so long that they believe it all.”

NY Democrat pleads with Republican not to share document proposing confiscation of guns

Comments Off on NY Democrat pleads with Republican not to share document proposing confiscation of guns

A New York Assemblyman has pleaded with his Republican colleague not to release a list of Democrat proposals on gun control that seek to undermine the 2nd Amendment. (This is also what Diane Feinstein and other Dems wanted to do nationwide as well, but backed down on the proposal.)

The State of New York this week passed some of the strictest gun control laws in the United States, effectively outlawing ‘assault weapons’ and limiting the size of magazines.

But if Republican Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin is to be believed, the New York State Democrats would have gone further if they could have. Much, much further.

In a video posted to his Facebook page, McLaughlin has shared the information of a ‘secret’ Democrat proposal not simply to make the purchasing of the crudely monikered ‘assault weapons’ illegal in New York, but also to engage in a mass confiscation programme, removing Americans’ weapons from their possession.

McLaughlin writes:

“Here it is. This is the video where I was asked to keep the Democrat proposals for the NY SAFE Act away from the public. This list was given to me by a colleague and it is not confidential.

This bill was an attack on the 2nd amendment and the Democrats clearly wanted to dismantle the work of the Founding Fathers. None of these amendments were included in the final bill thanks to us fighting back. I will not stand silent while these unpatriotic proposals are pathetically thrown at us a 11 o’clock at night”:

On his Facebook page, McLaughlin went ahead and released the list:

“Here it is. This is the video where I was asked to keep the Democrat proposals for the NY SAFE Act away from the public. This list was given to me by a colleague and it is not confidential.

This bill was an attack on the 2nd amendment and the Democrats clearly wanted to dismantle the work of the Founding Fathers. None of these amendments were included in the final bill thanks to us fighting back. I will not stand silent while these unpatriotic proposals are pathetically thrown at us a 11 o’clock at night:

1. Confiscation of “assault weapons”
2. Confiscation o ten round clips
3. Statewide database for ALL Guns
4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be replaced to the public
5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”
6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
11. State issued pistol permits
12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
14. Mandatory locking of guns at home
15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons”

And people scoff at conservatives like Rush who have been saying for years that Democrats want to confiscate weapons.

The Right Scoop

Gun Control in Australia and How It’s Working Today

Comments Off on Gun Control in Australia and How It’s Working Today

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety”. ..Benjamin Franklin

After the 1st year of being disarmed, here’s how it worked out for the Australians:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent. Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent. Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort, and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns.

The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it. You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

When the video talks about storing your weapons, think of this suggestion in America already:

New Proposal Will Force Gun Owners to Store Assault Weapons At Government Authorized Storage Depots

Bank Of America, No Guns Or Ammo Purchases With Credit Or Debit Cards,You Have To Hear This to Believe it!

When Barack Obama hands you Billions of dollars in bailout money, you better do as he says.

Video of recorded call to Bank Of America telling customers that they will no longer allow the purchase of Firearms or Ammunition with Bank Of America Credit or Debit cards!!

If this doesn’t clearly reveal to you that perhaps there could be more to the story than just ‘protecting children’ and ‘public safety’, it’s willful choice to keep those eyes, ears, and mind closed..

Bank of America has decided that they are our lords telling us what we can and can not purchase!!!! ASK THE JEWS OF GERMANY HOW THE PROCESS WORKS!

First it was Walmart and Dicks not selling ammunition, now it’s bank of America not allowing the purchase of Ammunition with Credit or Debt cards?

You have to hear this to believe it! Please Share!
