AR-15 is the rifle for the
´sport´ of hunting humans

New York Daily News, by Mike Lupica

Original Article

They call semiautomatics like this sport rifles. You bet. Mostly for the sport of killing innocent people, and killing them fast. So it takes nine months and two days from Newtown, from 20 dead children and six adults, for someone else to carry the same kind of AR-15 that Adam Lanza carried into Sandy Hook Elementary School into the Washington Navy Yard. They call semiautomatics like this sport rifles. You bet. Mostly for the sport of killing innocent people, and killing them fast. This time the shooter is reported to be a Navy reservist named Aaron Alexis and when he is shot dead

Idiot. The shooter used a "Biden gun" (aka shotgun) and then took weapons from guards onsite.

He didn´t have an AR-15. He had a shotgun.

Oh, and someone should inform the dolts at CNN that there is no such thing as an "AR-15 shotgun."

Correction... FBI is saying that the shooter used a shotgun and two handguns.

Lupica is the typical cossetted Connecticut liberal.

Of course, he´s going to spout off before he knows ANY facts... and any facts that disprove is liberal fantasies will be discounted.

The Ar 15 doesn´t kill any faster than any other rifle.

Went to the article to see if there was a way to contact Lupica to let him know that the AR belonged to the guards, not the criminal--imagine that, they don´t provide any way to contact him!

Mike Lupica is seriously needing his meds about now.

I haven´t heard a rant like this since I told my 3-year-old son that he couldn´t have any candy. Only, at least my 3-year-old had his facts straight.

Oh wait, Mike Lupica is a lie-beral. Logic, reason and facts are things he is physically incapable of comprehending. How silly of me...

CNN is now saying he probably didn´t even use a rifle, just the shotgun he brought with him and the two handguns he took from the security guys. But Lupica doesn´t let the facts get in the way of a spit-throwing, wall-eyed hysterical rant!

"If you think gun violence has reached a new high, you´re far from alone. However, according to a new statistical survey, you’re also wrong.

"The study, published Tuesday by the Pew Research Center, says that gun homicides have declined by a full 49 percent since their peak in 1993. There has been an even steeper decline, 75 percent, in nonlethal crime victimization (with or without a gun) in the period between 1993 and 2010.

"Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics show there were 11,078 gun homicide deaths in the U.S. in 2010, compared with 18,253 deaths in 1993.

"Nonfatal gun crimes dropped by 69 percent during that same period, according to a separate report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics that was also released Tuesday.

"Interestingly, the Pew study finds that 56 percent of respondents believe that deaths caused by guns are more frequent than they were 20 years ago, compared with just 12 percent who accurately said the rates had declined."

And anyway - at close quarters that Remington 870 loaded with buckshot is just as effective as an AR-15, and probably more effective. You just load it on the go. Pop more rounds in the tube and keep pulling the trigger.

There is no reason to let facts get in the way. Besides, if it was not an evil AR-15 it was an evil shotgun which made an otherwise morally upright individual go wrong.

Over the past 12 hours, we have learned that the perpetrator had a valid and legitimate ID and had ready and legal access to the base. He had this because he was employed as a civilian contractor by the USN. We have also learned that he has had multiple fire arms related "interactions" with law enforcement. Basically, I would not have hired this character with his record to vacuum cars at my car wash. Why did he have a security clearance and access to a critical military base? Is there anything that the US Government can do well?

As the liberals correctly point out, these tragic murders demand a legislative response, greater gun control.

We must, in the words of 0bama, "do everything we can to try to prevent them."

The only proven method of gun control to stop gun violence, far more effective than all other methods, is to have as many well-trained, honest citizens as possible have weapons at hand, especially concealed.

Do we have the courage, Mr. President, to address this issue honestly? I know I do.

By the way, the same method has been shown to prevent killing sprees by tyrants, and those sprees have been far more deadly than the relatively tiny numbers of mass shootings in this (relatively free) country, the USA.

Stronger gun control? Absolutely. Let´s do it! Start with ending "gun free zones."

FTA: "The FBI’s assistant director in charge of the Washington Field Office said Tuesday that gunman Aaron Alexis acted alone in the Navy Yard shooting that killed 12 people and added "we do not have any information" that an AR-15 was used. Mike Lupica’s column was written Monday when The Daily News and The Associated Press among many others reported, using reputable law enforcement sources, that the shooter Alexis had used three weapons including an AR-15."

IOW, Mike Lupica was "Shooting from the Lip" without any facts. Shoulda stuck with "Travel + Leisure Golf". It´s obvious that he knows less than beans about the subject of this article.

So what´s your point, Mikey? For every AR-15 used by a lunatic, thousands more around the world and their military brothers, the M-4 and M-16 are being used to protect people and defend their liberties. I can live with those odds.

More people commit suicide every day with "legal" drugs than are shot with firearms in this country. Ban medicine!

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
The gunman used both slugs and buckshot. At close range they are equally deadly. No AR-15 was used in the commission of this felony.
I guess we should now ban Joe Biden, who urged housewives to get themselves a shotgun.

AR-15s are military style rifles good for shooting people as well as animals. It´s exactly the sort of rifle you would need to defend yourself from a tyrannical government. Owning such weapons and so being able to defend one´s self from a tyrannical government or a band of marauders in the absence of law and order is the exact purpose of the second amendment. The second amendment does not just ensure that one can go hunting small game.

Having said that Aaron Alexis apparently rented an AR-15 but returned it before the attack. He used a shotgun and two handguns obtained during the attack.

Mike Lupica is Keith Olberman-lite-a far left New York liberal who happens to "cover" sports. I could have written his remarks for him-he is as predictable as global-warming admonishments after a hurricane. I´m sure that he considers himself an informed, concerned, intellectual, but he´s a simpleton with a store of pat responses.

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Medved    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment.

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility." As with just about everything Obama says, none of these claims turns out be

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it´s a major breach of the law. The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities.

He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management.

Cornyn raised the issue in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, who in testimony earlier this month highlighted biometric bracelets and fingerprint identification as a safety issue. “Your testimony has raised serious concerns for my constituents given President Obama’s track-record of acting beyond the scope of his legal authority and your hostility to the individual right to self-defense under the Second Amendment,” Cornyn wrote. “Is the Obama administration currently exploring

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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

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

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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'
