In the presidential debate on January, 7, in New Hampshire, ABC’s panel pressed hard to have the candidates say whether they believed states had a right to make contraceptives illegal and whether there was a Constitutional right to privacy. Romney, sidestepped it like a skilled matador, Ron Paul fumbled it.

Just when you thought Joe Biden couldn’t get any lower he finds a new bottom to scrape. In an act of desperation to save the sorry state of this administration Joe Biden introduces rape and murder as justification to pass their latest job bill and implies that if you oppose the jobs bill you are in favor of more rape and murder.

About a year ago the state of Virginia allowed those who have a permit to carry a concealed weapon to be allowed to carry them into a bar, joining a number of other states. Gun control advocates predicted drunken shootouts like we used to watch on Gunsmoke and in the movies.

This is a story you are not likely to hear about from the mainstream media. As previously reported on this site the Obama administration, led by Hillary Clinton, came down hard on the sovereign country of Honduras for upholding their constitution and fighting against a Chavez style, “leader for life” power grab by their president Manuel Zelaya.

The above question could and should be applied to a number of individuals including Attorney General Eric Holder and even President Barack Obama. The subject is a program, run out of the Justice Department, called “Fast and Furious.”

Gun Confiscation Movement (Part 3 of 3)

by Bill O'Connell on May 30, 2011

Share and Recommend:

If you can’t take the guns away from the citizens, then tax the gun dealers out of existence. In New York, the state assembly just passed a law requiring that all semi-automatic weapons incorporate micro stamping. Micro stamping is a technique that will stamp the make, model, and serial number of a gun on a shell casing before ejecting it from the gun. The idea being that it would make it simpler for the police investigating a crime to find spent shell casings at the scene and voila, instant criminal identification. Only it doesn’t identify the criminal, but only the last legal owner of the gun, provided that information is in a registry (there’s that registry thing again).

Gun Confiscation Movement (Part 2 of 3)

by Bill O'Connell on May 29, 2011

Share and Recommend:

California is going through what we might all face. The nebulous definition of assault weapons has been tweaked and changed and each time, it has been used as an excuse to confiscate more guns. Who is left unaffected by all of this? Criminals. They don’t care about the law. Our own government is actively working to make us less safe, taking our property, and then failing to defend us against these criminals, because in a free society, they can’t. They have to wait for the criminal to act and when the criminal acts, the police are rarely on the scene. They have to be called and in the mean time the victims own government has actively worked to disarm them and leave them helpless.

As Chuck Schumer, Carolyn McCarthy, the New York State Assembly, and others continue to press for more laws on law abiding citizens while criminals and madmen have their way. I believe it is informative to review the results of this folly first in history and then specifcally in Australia.

The Tragedy of Carolyn McCarthy

by Bill O'Connell on May 21, 2011

Share and Recommend:

Carolyn McCarthy is a victim. Her husband was tragically killed and her son paralyzed by a madman, Colin Ferguson, who opened fire on a crowded Long Island Railroad train killing six and injuring nineteen. McCarthy, who was a Republican, switched parties and ran for Congress on the gun control issue after her Congressman Dan Frisa voted against an assault weapons ban that she supported and she won the seat. She has been on a mission ever since to impose tighter and tighter restrictions on guns, believing that will make the world safer. She wants you to feel her pain, literally.
