In short, pretty much anything worth having.
If this passes I want a ban on hairspray and wrinkles. It makes about as much sense and would make Feinstein disappear.

Interesting, isn´t it, that the so-called Liberals are the first ones to infringe on Speech, on Religion (of their choosing, namely Christianity), expression IF it´s conservative or opposition expression... And on the Right to bear arms.

They are liars, and promoters of lies, lying liars; and fathering lies by the dozens; deceivers, malefactors, pervy perverts of the True and the Good.

Nope, this is just a head fake (for now).

What this does is to outrage virtually everybody. Then they´ll come back with "sensible firearms registration" or "reasonable background checks" or "closing the gun show loophole", and the Republicans will go along with them in order to be bipartisan...

Good Americans cannot win the battle with Progs by playing Defense. We´ve heard this so often over the years. In any political battle, the natural instinct of every public official is to compromise. So, when the Left asks to ban all guns, we compromise and say, "how bout just some guns?"

A slightly less bad result is obtained from the "just say no" tactical position. Let´s ban all guns! "No!" It´s somewhat more effective until the political stars align against you, and millions of slack-jawed, droopy-drawered, grill-wearing, fatherless, handout monkeys suddenly vote to ban all guns.

That leaves the only reasonable response to preserving our freedoms -- take the offensive. And that requires memorializing our 2nd Amendment protections with the same political trip-wires and fortifications enjoyed by Obamacare and every other stupid liberal idea that´s come down the pike since FDR. We need to affirmatively institutionalize the exercise of 2nd Amendment freedoms. We need free government provided firearms education, an office of civil gun rights, and a Department of Personal Safety. Until politicians have a place at the trough to partake of the economic benefit of gun enthusiasts, and unproductive make-work that goes with the nationalization of all all aspects of modern life, they will simply not leave us alone.

In short, let´s start a campaign for government activism in support of gun ownership and shooting sports, and we may finally rest easy.

And thank you Diane, my sub-2000 just jumped in value . . . again. If you guys keep it up, I´ll be able to retire early.

Let NO ONE comply with any government registration scheme. After registration comes confiscation.

Do not let them turn you into peasants begging for your life! Gun registration and confiscation precede the tyranny of the dictators. Do NOT comply with any registration or confiscation. DO NOT COMPLY with the demands of the devil.

There are 5 or 6 seats up for re-election in 2014. If Obama thinks that Dingy is going to endanger his leadership position and majority by voting against his own interests, he had better rethink things through. Blue on blue violence, as Allahpundit calls it, is going to get really ugly the next year or so, as the liberals fight each other over the spoils.

Hopefully by now, those affected manufacturers and their employees have contacted their local, state and federal elected reps with specific job and tax impacts and an urgent demand to know what they will do to stop this nonsense. At the same time, those involved in federal or blue state sales need to immediately reexamine their sales and pricing data before considering taking those 30 pieces of silver!

Rush is right (again). This list (legislation) has been in some Dems drawer forever, they figured this was their chance to drag it out and get ´r done. Of course, they know it is not going to happen.

In addition, ValJar is sending Bari on the road to convince Americans to give up their guns. Community organizing on a National Level, gives him something to do.

The named list of guns is only a part of the gun ban proposal, they also want to ban any semi-automatic rifle or handgun that can accept a detachable magazine that could possible contain over 10 rounds of ammo. They also want to ban any semi-automatic rifle or pistol that exhibits one so-called military attribute such as a hand grip. In total they are talking about banning just about all modern semi-automatic rifles and pistols. That would wipe out much of the conservative oriented US small arms and related industries along with tens of thousands of well paying jobs in those industries.

This is the Obama Care of Obama´s second term. I don´t think the Republicans can let anything like this to go through the congress, because if they do they will definitely meet opposition in their next primary elections. Also the Democrats have to defend 20 Senate seats and gun control has always been a election loser for them, so look for anything that does get through the congress to be heavily watered down, probably containing enhanced background investigation authorities designed to make it harder for seriously mentally ill people to buy firearms, enhanced penalties for straw purchasers, and many controls on how guns can be stored in homes.

Washington - The government for the first time has enforced environmental laws protecting birds against wind energy facilities, winning a $1 million settlement Friday from a power company that pleaded guilty to killing 14 eagles and 149 other birds at two Wyoming wind farms. The Obama administration has championed pollution-free wind power and used the same law against oil companies and power companies for drowning and electrocuting birds. The case against Duke Energy Corp. and its renewable energy arm was the first prosecuted under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act against a wind energy company.

Mark Kelly´s campaign against "assault weapons" such as the AR-15 rifle has sparked a local backlash. On March 13, a Tucson, Arizona radio host published a photograph of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords holding an AR-15 rifle at a gun range. Giffords has since confirmed that the photograph is authentic. James T. Harris, blogging at the website of "101.4 FM The Truth," wrote: What is wrong with this picture? Absolutely nothing, and prior to the aggressive progressive opportunistic fear mongering in the wake of Sandy Hook, this picture would have raised no eyebrows and garnered little public attention.

DALLAS — The four-alarm fire that engulfed the DFW Gun Range at 1607 West Mockingbird Lane in Dallas Sunday afternoon was apparently triggered by unauthorized tracer rounds. By Sunday night, the concern had shifted to the weapons that remained in the smoldering wreckage of the one-story building. Heavy black smoke was visible from downtown Dallas soon after the first alarm was sounded at 2:37 p.m. About 50 people were inside the gun range when the fire broke out, but all were able to escape safely.

Samantha Pawlucy, a sophomore at Carroll High, said her geometry teacher publicly humiliated her by asking why she was wearing a Romney/Ryan T-shirt and going into the hallway to urge other teachers and students to mock her. “I was really embarassed and shocked.

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facetiously recalled “Presidents” Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney to make a point about how Republicans need to “stand for principle” in order to win big elections. Today, Sen. McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

KINGSTON - More than 150 years after European colonial powers abolished slavery, a coalition of Caribbean nations is considering legal action to seek a formal apology and monetary compensation. Caribbean leaders meeting next week in St. Vincent are expected to study a broad legal outline for the reparations claim prepared by a British law firm. The subject of reparations has simmered in the Caribbean for many years and opinions are divided. Some see reparations as delayed justice, while others see it as an empty claim and a distraction from modern social problems in Caribbean societies. Slavery ended throughout the Caribbean

The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site.
