Nancy Pelosi coins a
new term for gun control

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2013 2:00:30 PM

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has adopted a new term for gun control, “gun violence prevention,” in hopes that the euphemism will make it easier to marshal public opinion in favor of new gun laws as well as other policies designed to prevent shootings. “If we come out of the Newtown experience and all we do is talk about it and not have a result,” Pelosi told The New York Times, “that would be a dereliction of duty on the part of us in public office. We must find a place where we

Gun violence prevention. Stop releasing violent felons when the state budget won´t allow a larger prison because some do bad judge thinks the crowded conditions are cruel and start incarcerating those with a mental history that have demonstrated the potential for violence. We already live in a cage surrounded by a very few police officers that use the phrase, "our day starts when your day ends."

Hmmm...you´d better speak with Mr & Mrs Giffords, Ms Pelosi.

They are gearing up to talk about it nonstop in the hunt for cash - I mean, donations.

Use magical thinking to eliminate all firearms and the next steps would be knife violence prevention, brick violence prevention, crowbar violence prevention, predatory pack attack violence prevention, stronger person violence prevention, younger person violence prevention...

They do not aim to prevent violence, now would they (as history shows elsewhere future victims turn in their weapons). If it was, they´d insist existing criminal laws were enforced, with strict penalties, and get the insane asylums open again.

So, why do they want to disarm us? Are they afraid of something, privy to inside information as they are?

Not a bad idea. In response, how about "constitutionally-mandated firm opposition?"

"Civil War" sounds so, well, uncivilized.

How does outlawing, taxing or confiscating legally owned private property of millions of Americans going to reduce gun violence? Sounds to me like it might incite it.

That´s right up there with other democrat weasel words such as "entrant," which is leftist code for illegal alien, "gay" for homosexual. (it really ticks me off that homos confiscated the word gay) Then there is "overseas contingency operation," leftist code for war on terror. And, my favorite, "workplace violence," (which is also a DOJ policy) to describe the jihad terrorist murders by major hassan at Ft. Hood.

Solution for nancy´s new term, every time it´s used, conservatives immediately correct the record and call it what it is---gun control. For example in a talk show discussion, if a liberal says "gun violence prevention," the conservative abruptly interrupts and says, "point of personal privilege, you mean gun control.”

As Rush put it, if you can stop an evil or crazy person from doing bad things with simply another law or restriction, then why stop with gun control? Why not just jump to the law that says you aren´t allowed to commit mass murder? See, problem solved.

Oh wait, there is already many laws about that...so....laws don´t work...hmmmmm

As Rush has said, there is no law right now that says that a crazy person cannot commit mass murder. This situation is really not as complex as the liberal Democrats are making out, if they take the guns away from criminals and the dangerous mentally ill the problem is solved, but they don´t have any intention of doing that, because any new gun control laws that they pass will be aimed squarely at law abiding gun owners as they are the only ones who will obey those laws.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network.

And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
