White House Prepares to Defeat
NRA with Speedy Legislation

Breitbart´s Big Government, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/5/2013 11:37:05 AM

According to TPM, America´s favorite never-let-a-crisis-go-to-waste administration is preparing to ram through a number of restrictions to our Second Amendment civil rights as early as Jan 15. The idea behind this strategy is to strike while people´s heightened emotions are still scrambling common sense: The White House and gun control supporters are gearing up for a whirlwind month, with plans to pass reform legislation before outrage over the Sandy Hook massacre has a chance to fade. House Democrats are moving ahead with their own plans as well.

I am sure the Repugs will have appropriate hearings on these proposals to make sure that they make sense.

Gun safes are the only thing I can see that make sense in response to Sandy Hook.

This was in Talking Points Memo, a leftist site. They´re blatantly admitting that they´re capitalizing on a tragedy. They´re twisting the facts. Their followers will applaud the tactic because they don´t care about the truth.

@#1: None of their proposals are enforceable without digging into people´s lives even more. And since nobody alive even knows how Adam Lanza got hold of his mother´s guns, it´s only a supposition that a gun safe would have stopped him.

Whatever the creeps in Washington do, they´re not taking away the people´s guns. There would be civil resistance on a scale never before known if they tried.

The tide has already turned. Gun control fever wilted over Christmas. You won´t get the votes now.

#1, no way. Letting the camel´s nose into the tent means the whole camel soon follows. The 2nd amendment says ´keep´ too, in the activities that ´...shall not be infringed´.
Over 20k gun laws and laws against murder didn´t stop that madman. He should have been put away - but that´s the nasty little gift from the LPs several decades ago that they don´t like to discuss - why he couldn´t be. The constitution isn´t stopping the LPs until it is backed up by armed force by the citizens. This is a long-term game by the LPS to disarms us. Please pay attention.
As the founders said, (paraphrased) ´Jealously guard the tree of liberty and look with suspicion upon all who approach it´. Especially when they claim an encroachment is ´for the chilluns´ or ´for your own good´.

Obama-Biden continues to be "dead-wrong " about guns and recent mass murders. Example of facts...Mother who has guns and uses them...also knows she has a son with mental health issues that were getting worse and worse. The Mother delayed "intervention to both confine and treat her son...and also remove her guns from her home as a precaution". Time long since ran out...in fact in hind sight...the Mother used poor judgement. It was only the Mother who could prevent this massacre and she was the first person shot.

There have been some nice technological for gun owners lately. There are several small gun safes on the market that sit on your bedside table. Some are biometric...it reads your fingerprint and pops open. On others you hit a three letter code and it opens.

Not ideal perhaps but it keeps your pistol handy and secure and the kids and others can´t get to it.

I hope it won´t happen, but people are in a panic. Have you been in a gun store lately? Many guns are back-ordered, ammo is swooped up as soon as it comes in. For some guns, the wait is months. It´s insane.

You are correct, #11, BUT - In order to make it difficult for the mentally challenged to gain access to firearms, you have to restrict the entire population, a proposition that is not acceptable to us for obvious reasons. There are plenty of other means and devices to kill on a mass scale if you are inclined but firearms are the only thing that stand between a tyrant and the people he would rule.

#11, a lot of mentally ill and unstable people are conniving. You don´t know much about mental illness, do you?

#1, while I understand a lot of people are very upset and disappointed in the Republican Party, I find it highly inappropriate and reprehensible to use the term "repugs" to describe anyone in the party. It is a term used by slimeball leftists who hang out in places like the Daily Koz and Democrat Underground. It would serve one well to carefully consider how people may view a person who uses such terminology on a site where most of the members are either Republicans or conservatives. By the way, the party is the people and the principles--NOT the elected politicians nor the unelected party bosses/workers. If there is a problem with the party, it is incumbent upon the people to clean it up.

I find it odd that we know so little about this shooting. I sensed an extraordinary amount of energy being expended by the cops on this investigation. Why? Could there be some major malfunction by the PD about this? I´m to understand that it took the cops 20 minutes to respond to the first 911 call. Seen other websites that transcribe the chronology and text of the PD commo, but it doesn´t appear the response time was nailed down.

Also, do we definitively know what weapon the shooter used?

Seems there is much more heat than light here.

How many new supporters are the White House and gun-grabbers gaining these days??

If gun control laws work, can someone explain Chicago and Washington, D.C.? Both have very restrictive gun control laws and very high rates of gun-related crime.

What we do know, #2, is that Adam Lanza´s mother went on a two-night getaway immediately prior to his rampage, leaving him home alone. Then, when she returned, he shot her in the face in her bed. Who knows if a gun safe was even used. He had a couple of days to figure out how to get it open.

Are they pushing this because they want us to react as we are reacting? Do they want armed conflict with us? Is this why Social Security, DHS etc have bought over a billion rounds of ammo? Is this why some small town police forces now have tanks? Is this Owebama´s excuse to fulfill Ayre´s dream of wiping out 25 million Americans and throwing the rest of us conservatives into those FEMA camps for re-education? Yes, it sounds like tinfoil hat stuff, but I´m beginning to wonder.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia. He is upset at supposed divisiveness and rudeness directed at him when testifying before Congress, and suggests not too subtly that he and President Obama have been accorded inordinately harsh treatment (fill in the blanks why). Aside from the fact that he seemed to have relished the combat with Representative Gohmert in quite unprofessional tones (“you don’t want to go there, buddy, alright?”/ “good luck with your asparagus”), he seems to forget what former attorney general Alberto Gonzales once endured both in the liberal media and before Democrats

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of
