The current administration has manufactured a crisis in which they could offer a solution through more gun control.
The amount of spin going on only reinforces my conclusions.
“Keep your powder dry” has become a glib phrase which means little simply because it‘s been over used.
Having said that…keep your powder dry.
That’s the first time I’ve ever said that.
If most of the claims regarding this scandal are substantiated — and developing evidence certainly indicates a high likelihood of that happening — we face a watershed moment in American history.
Our federal law enforcement apparatus became a criminal conspiracy. This was an assault on the democratic rule of law and the very essence of our republic.
"Internal ATF emails seem to suggest that ATF agents were counseled to highlight a link between criminals and certain semi-automatic weapons in order to bolster a case for a rule like the one the DOJ announced yesterday [Monday]."
"Can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same FfL and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks Mark R. Chait Assistant Director Field Operations."
If they statistically arent better and should wear them in cars I suppose it would apply to guys riding MX and in the dirt.I never said anything about dirt riding, I was speaking about on the road.
If you dont wear a helmet you should be forced to sign a insurance waiver that says so. I dont want my rates or gov/municipal costs raised and used for covering ignorance.Of course he offers no proof how this would cost more. I should die faster and cost less, right?
Is that something you would tell your 16 year old son who just bought his first street bike?All All 50 States have a law for 16 years olds, duh!
Its funny how some riders want to act like riding without a helmet is a “right” or “choice”.See how he merged Right, as in inalienable Right, with Choice? I never said I had a right. I take my rights very seriously and I know the difference, I bet he does not. In my State, I have the freedom to choose, so I do. It does not agree with some peoples beliefs and they want to impose their belief system on me.
Serious riders always wear helmets. Simple as that.He could get a job with the Brady Organization, I hear they are hiring.
For an additional amount for ‘‘State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance’’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’’ for the ATF Project Gunrunner.Shovel Ready? Shovels digging graves for 2 Border Patrol agents and 150 Mexican law enforcement agents so far! It is a sad, sad day.
That is the argument most law abiding licensed or permitted gun carriers feel should be the "common sense" rule!"It certainly can be argued that such policies are ineffectual because persons who wish to perpetrate violence will ignore them, and that the net effect of such policies is to leave defenseless the law-abiding citizens who follow these policies," he wrote.
Melson provided detailed information and documents to the Office of the Deputy Attorney General at the Justice Department.And this,
The details of Operation Fast & Furious just keep getting worse from the standpoint of prosecutorial ineptitude and incompetence. But with Melson’s testimony, it is also appears that the Justice Department and specifically Deputy Attorney General James Cole have been obstructing Congress and engaging in a cover-up to prevent Congress and the public from finding out just how much the leadership of the Justice Department was involved in this expanding scandal.Emphasis mine!
To Mexico, the U.S. government has blood on its hands.Hey Mexico??? There are plenty of Americans who agree with you!! I can think of 4.5 million NRA members that agree, and probably double that see through this idiocy!
Any appointed or elected government official or department head who enacts or enforces a law that conflicts with the state law will personally face fines up to $100,000 and lawsuits.I can only hope that more States pass this type of law. I live in Pennsylvania and there are so many Napoleonic Township/Borough elected officials making laws up as they go it kills me. It is only because these people have protection from their decisions. I know of a township that has various laws on the books that are in direct conflict with Penna. State law.
It could have been worse. Another case involved a traffic stop, where an ATF-linked AK-47 was seized. The officer who made the arrest should count himself lucky that the weapon was still in the trunk and not in the suspect’s hands.Are they that idealistic that none of them could see this going bad?? Did they think that they so owned the news media organizations that they could spin this as "bad gun dealers" and "lax gun laws"? Really?
From Glen Reynolds at Instapundit. "I continue to suspect that a secret program allowing thousands of guns to go from U.S. gun stores to Mexican crime sites was more than coincidentally related to a gun-control campaign from the same administration that was predicated on . . . statements about the flow of guns from U.S. gun stores to Mexican crime sites."
