A White House adviser on Sunday said he was optimistic Congress will approve at least part of President Barack Obama´s proposals to reduce gun violence in the wake of December´s massacre at a Connecticut elementary school. Just hours before Obama was to be sworn in for his second term in office, White House adviser David Plouffe said on Sunday talk shows he felt there was support in Congress for some measures, including universal background checks for gun buyers and limits on high-capacity clips. "I´m confident some of the measures you mentioned - clips, universal background checks -

Legislation required the cooperation of Congress. Boehner & Co. had better hod the line.

Interesting, however, I can find nothing whatsoever in Obama´s current tyrannical wet dream that has anything whatsoever to do with "gun violence"

There´s only one reason any government would want to disarm it´s own people, and I think we all pretty much know what it is...

I don´t think it will. We have people up for re-election and they come from pro-gun states. They´re playing with fire if they do. Especially Reid who accepted donations from the NRA.

I used to call magazines "clips," until somebody intelligent explained the difference.

And I wish Hannity would stop calling them clips, too. Or maybe not. Maybe the plan is to get the donks to ban clips, and it won´t affect anything.

Is Obama still selling firearms to Mexico´s most violent drug gangs?

Didn´t that get over 300 Mexican citizens murdered?

Why isn´t Reuters covering the "Fast & Furious" scandal?

Is Obama still hiding behind executive privilege, and refusing to answer all questions about F&F?

I plan to purchase another pistol on Tuesday, a kel tec 9mm, which I like to call the Saint Trayvon model.
And if I buy the pistol from a dealer, I have to undergo a background check. But if I buy it from a private individual here in Pennsylvania, I still have to go through a background check, and the transfer has to be done through a dealer.
Not a big deal. But if rifles and shotguns are included, that is a big deal.

Count the guns before Obama decided to make things "better."

Count them now.

It is a perfect example of any Progressive´s aggressive ignorance regarding Cause and Effect.

If the House goes along with anything from Obama on Gun Control, the Weepie-Eyed Bonner will be Primaried in 2014 and if he makes it past that, he will be clobbered in the fundraising race for the November election.

The biggest Anti-Bonner contributor will be the NRA and he knows that.

Maybe all GOP leadership candidates should be Primaried because most all are spineless wussies!

‘Primary-The-RINO PAC’. Yup, that’s the ticket.

I have a whole coffee can full of clips for my M-1 Garand. I have a whole lot of drawers full of magazines for most everything else.
I have a few jars full of stripper clips for rapid loading of magazines.
See? Its pretty straight forward. Not confusing at all.

The largest clip I have ever seen only held ten rounds of .556 ammo. The clips came in bandoliers; we used them to load our magazines.

When I see someone correct another poster for using the word "clip" instead of "magazine," I automatically assume that you are one of the douchebags that did not bother to vote last November because Romney was not "pure" enough. Is that what you really want other posters to think? Oh, and by the way, are you happy now?

#14 - Probably so regarding the Romney vote. I´ve been around guns all my life, served in the military, and am an NRA Life Member. Still sometimes use the word ´clip´ without apologies. I know the proper word is ´magazine´ like a bullet is not a ´cartidge´. What really matters is that I did vote and I know very well how to use my guns.

Remember the nasty doctrine: Never let a crisis go to waste.

Media jumped on the school shooting by yelling Gun Control,in order to cover up Bengazi hearings that are to begin soon.

The House should loudly and publicly rake Barry and his cronies over the coals over Benghazi and Fast and Furious. The House members should be so obnoxious over these scandals that the media cannot help but report it.

WASHINGTON—First lady Michelle Obama plans to meet Chicago high school students in the nation´s capital Thursday when they visit Howard University to gain exposure to college life, White House aides said. Bow Wow, a rapper, actor and co-host of BET´s "106 & Park," will join a campus tour with the first lady and the Chicago Public Schools students and moderate her round-table discussion with them, her aides said. The students, juniors and seniors, will be on the first day of a four-day visit to Howard for a program called "Escape to the Mecca." The program is designed to give talented

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens. Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina “Uncle Toms.” Holmes, who also has said that it’s fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we’re exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

House Democrats, who are stepping up the pressure on Republicans to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation, said Tuesday the Obama administration is getting ready to take executive action on the matter very soon. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks. And then there are some broader policy changes that will be coming

WASHINGTON — In wake of two mass shootings this month, Attorney General Eric Holder urged Congress Tuesday to authorize $15 million for training state and local law enforcement officers to confront so-called active shooters. "In the face of this urgent and growing threat – when the lives of innocent people are at stake – those who stand on the front lines need our full and unwavering support," Holder said in a video message posted on the Justice Department´s website. "This critical funding would help the Justice Department ensure that America´s police officers have the tools and guidance they need to

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch. With concrete walls and floor, the

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
