Scandal Alert "Under the Radar"

Please share this information with any gun loving or gun friendly folks you know!
I place this under the desk with other President Obama listed, "Under the Radar", items.

Scandal! Cities pay anti-gun lobbyists
Jeff Knox explains how your tax money is used to undermine 2nd Amendment
Jeff Knox is a second-generation political activist and director of The Firearms Coalition. His writing can regularly be seen in Shotgun News and Front Sight magazines as well as here on WorldNetDaily.
Cities around the country have created staff positions for professional lobbyists whose primary function is to drum up support for anti-gun legislation, ordinances and regulations. Part of these lobbyists salaries are being paid by grants from do-gooder foundations like the Joyce Foundation, but the balance of salaries, benefits and support costs are being borne by you, the taxpayer.
An associate of mine in Florida named Sean Caranna was doing some research for his grassroots rights organization, Florida Carry, Inc., when he came across something on the agenda of the Orlando City Council that he immediately recognized as a serious problem.
The item was for the renewal of a contract for a city employee. That’s mundane enough, but the job title of this particular employee was “Mayors Against Illegal Guns regional coordinator,” and the job description is to “play an integral role in the coordination and planning of gun crime prevention and illegal gun-related initiatives, events and media opportunities in the city and in the region” (the full council agenda and detailed information can be found on the City of Orlando website).
In the case of Orlando, the grant is $60,000 from something called the “United Against Illegal Guns Support Fund,” which appears to be a front group set up by billionaire mayor of New York City Mike Bloomberg – the creator of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. The Joyce Foundation provides the primary funding for Bloomberg’s “support fund” to the tune of $650,000 in 2011 and at least $1,000,000 more in the previous 3 years.
While the grant to Orlando pays the bulk of the regional coordinator’s salary, the city is allocating $24,000 of citizen’s money to fund the position and providing other city resources and facilities for her use. The person tapped for the job is a woman who has worked as a regional coordinator for the Brady Campaign Against Guns, and as a professional lobbyist for MAIG and several other groups.
In essence, the city is paying $24,000 to have an anti-rights organization’s lobbyist working in their offices and pretending to be a city employee.
After discovering this scam in Orlando, Caranna began digging deeper and found similar sweetheart deals in several other cities around the country, including Seattle, Milwaukee, Columbus and Minneapolis. Based solely on the funding numbers from the Joyce Foundation, there should be at least 10 of these regional coordinators around the country – working against rights and being compensated in part by taxpayers.
Finding them all has proven to be a bit of a challenge, as no one from MAIG, Joyce or the Support Fund seems interested in advertising the coordinators’ existence. Caranna found, and my own research confirms, that some cities try to keep their participation in the scheme on the down low by using initials or euphemistic titles and job descriptions, but now that we know about the scam, I don’t think it will take long to expose most all of the pseudo-city employees. With more than a million and a half dollars granted to the project over the past 4 years by the Joyce Foundation alone, there has to be a money trail to follow. We also know all 600 mayors involved in MAIG and will be scouring the books of each of them looking for traces of this scheme.
I’m asking all of the members of The Firearms Coalition and all of my readers to help us locate these taxpayer funded anti-rights lobbyists. You can find a list of all of the participating mayors on the MAIG website and then launch your own investigation into any of them you choose.
While we’re at it, let’s look into this whole concept of private grants funding, and influencing, public policy. On its surface, the idea of a charitable group helping a municipality do some public service seems reasonable; a family group might support municipal preschool and after school programs, for instance. But if that group has a political agenda, or demands inclusion of a controversial curriculum, the “gift” becomes questionable.
From one side these grants look like a way for the charitable group to make their dollars go further while helping a city reach its goals, but it is also a way for a pressure group to get public funding for their agenda.
Imagine the uproar if a city created a staff position for the promotion of firearm safety training with funding from the NRA Foundation. Even if the program focused solely on safety and never crossed into the rights issue or promotion of firearms ownership, the media and hoplophobes would go ballistic.
The very innocuous and apolitical Eddie Eagle Gun Safe program, with coloring books and video cartoons teaching kids that if they come across a gun they should “Stop – Don’t Touch – Leave the Area – and Tell an Adult,” comes under fire because it is given to schools and police departments free by the NRA Foundation.
Public-private partnerships can be good things, but local politicians need to be extremely cautious about giving the keys to the city to any outside group whose altruism might be driven by a political or social agenda. The old adage of never looking a gift horse in the mouth does not apply in civic matters – just ask the Trojans. It is very tempting to a politician to be able to offer constituents some valuable service at a fraction of its normal cost, so it’s up to the citizens to be attentive and keep their politicians on the straight and narrow.
For those who might not know, Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a political group formed by New York mayor Michael Bloomberg. It has an agenda almost identical to that of the Brady Campaign and other anti-gun groups, but it goes to great lengths to make its proposals seem reasonable and moderate when, in fact, they are intended to make firearms ownership more difficult and dangerous. Bloomberg has spent millions of dollars from his own very deep pockets and the pockets of New York taxpayers to advance his agenda and is receiving additional millions from the Joyce Foundation – the same Joyce Foundation that gave Barack Obama a paid directorship as a stepping-stone into politics.
This scandal will be unfolding for weeks, and probably years, to come. The more information we can dig up on the MAIG employees infiltrating municipal government, the better chance we will have of putting a stop to this theft of taxpayer money. Check your local government for any private-public partnership grant programs – particularly programs funded by MAIG – and let me know what you find. Together we can pull the mask off of this beast and return control of municipal government to the people who live there.

The Factual Truth on Race

The Zimmerman/Martin issue has raised race riot concerns, between black and white, Hispanic and black and black and Asian.  I happen to come across an article, written by a black man that sums up the feelings and trepidations I have toward race issues.

Please read this well written article by Walter Williams.

I wish Reverend Sharpton, Reverend Jackson and the other race-baiters would answer to this article. I am sure they would argue the accuracy of individual numbers listed, but you can not escape the truth. Even if these numbers are off 25% either way, it is a harmful trend.

A tidbit that gets you thinking.

 According to a Tuskegee Institute study, between the years 1882 and 1968, 3,446 blacks were lynched at the hands of whites. Black fatalities during the Korean War (3,075), Vietnam War (7,243) and all wars since 1980 (8,197) come to 18,515, a number that pales in comparison with black loss of life at home. It’s a tragic commentary to be able to say that young black males have a greater chance of reaching maturity on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan than on the streets of Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Oakland, Newark and other cities.
Wow, powerful stuff. And.....
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94 percent figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks. Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation’s population,....

Eddie the Eagle Needs to Be In Chester, PA

Chester, PA needs Eddie the Eagle.

There is a small city near my home named Chester that is in serious need of this type of training. I have been routinely suggesting it to the local politicians but it falls on deaf ears.

Proof it works. 

Lawson had taught the students at the school to recognize danger through a “GunSafe” presentation, documented in the Eddie Eagle program which is associated with the National Rifle Association.

Florida Non Zimmerman Good Samaritan

 Nope, the anti gun goofs say this never happens

POLICE: Robbery foiled by gun-toting Good Samaritan MANGONIA PARK, Fla. -- Police report a would-be robber instead was shot and ended up in the hospital Sunday.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports a robbery in the 400 block of Australian Avenue ended when a passerby fired shots at the suspect. The suspect later showed up at St. Mary's Medical Center with a gunshot wound.

Deputies are still looking for more suspects.

A MUST read... Terrorist or Set up?

Did these Occupy members really set this in motion?

The FBI informant/plant has some serious culpability IMHO!!

New York Violates Rights Everyday

Their answer is , it's working for them.

I have to tell you, I would have a serious problem with any officer stopping me as I take my daily walk and frisking me.  How about you?  But it is routine in New York. They argue that they are justified because their crime numbers are low. But 700,000 rights violations return only 500 criminals charges. Let me put that into perspective in real numbers..  700,000 people frisked. 10% would be 70,000. 15 would be 7,000. 0.1% would be 700 people.  You getting this??

New York violates rights as a matter of routine. No 2nd amendment rights, no 4th amendment rights. How do people let this happen???  My favorite quote is below

The tactic has drawn criticism from civil libertarians, local officials and community leaders, who say the practice unfairly targets African Americans and Latinos.

New York remains my most hated State. New Jersey remains a close 2nd.  Unbelievable!!

Justice for Trayvon’: 15 Whites Beaten By Gangs of Black Thugs… So Far

Bob Owns has the entire story here.

I have stayed away from any writing any information about the Martin/Zimmerman issue in Florida. But I have been on the record in many sites mentioning that Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan, Mayor Nutter and even President Obama assisted by the main stream media, ABC, CNN and NBC mostly have caused this racist hatred.

I am a rare bird, in that I don't see color, I see ability in people. So when I see people financially or politically using race as a way to stir a pot, I hate it completely. IMHO there should be no hate crimes. Crimes are crimes, if you assault someone you should be punished accordingly, why do we assign it as a hate crime? How did we end up allowing that to occur. We are the HUMAN race. Ethnicity is not important in the legal system.  I sure wish I could get out on the stump and employ some academicians to adopt my thinking and teaching.

 In just two months, there were at least 14 known assaults — some clearly attempted murder — perpetrated by black mobs against 15 white victims that have been tied to a widely shared desire to avenge the death of Trayvon Martin.

Days of our Trailers: Another 'One Man Show' Gun Group

Days of our Trailers: Another 'One Man Show' Gun Group

Agree with your comment.  Splintering the NRA and it's mission, huge as it is, is no way to start a organization.  I have reviewed the board of directors Mr. Feldman has listed on his web site, and I am very unimpressed!  Only time will tell!
