    Saying gun manufacturers should take steps to track guns, a Boston city councilor is proposing that global positioning technology be installed in firearms.
    <DIV id=article>
    <DIV ="id=articleTools">Councilor Rob Consalvo wants to put a tracking device into newly manufactured guns and have legal gun owners retrofit their firearms so owners and police can locate and retrieve stolen guns the same way police use a computer chip to locate stolen cars.</DIV></DIV>

    What I'm about to post is probably not one of those quotable statements which adds to a fine forum, but........


    I really don't care what those stupid yankees do to themselves. Just keep that nonsense north of the M-D line. This anti-gun/anti-2A junk, of course, will not fly in N.C. or S.C. or the rest of the South.


    I don't understand why lefties, liberals and neocons don't want the South to secede. It makes lots of sense to have a northern nation dedicated to socialism, communism, sodomy and a police state with no Southern votes to get in their way. They could have their own unimpeded paridise.


    And then have a Southern nation dedicated to Biblical principles of gov't. That way, the liberals could move back up north and not be bothered with.....oh wait. That's right. They moved South to get away from their own mess they left up north.


    yankees, like from Mass., basically don't have a clue. yankees, GO HOME!!! AND STAY HOME!!!

    You mentioned the Yankees coming down south to get away from the mess that they caused, but some want to bring the mess with them. Another reason that the Yankee elite doesn’t want to lose the South is that without the South to fill the ranks of their imperial legions and provide treasure for their empires coffers where would their empire be? If the Yankee elite and their allies were to lose the South, they would lose their empire.

    This just in via email -- see last paragraph in particular.


    Irwin [Schiff] called. He is currently in Florence AZ. He doesn't know how
    &gt; long he is going to be there. He didn't have the address of the
    &gt; place. He said the DOJ confiscated his commissary account
    &gt; (approximately 800.00) so he has no money to make calls. He had to
    &gt; call collect. He said he was okay and in good spirits. He said to
    &gt; never give up. And he said to keep checking his web site.
    &gt; www.paynoincometax.com
    &gt;
    &gt; I told him about our tribute to him at the Big Health &amp; Freedom
    &gt; Conference that was held here in California this past weekend and
    &gt; how everyone gave him a standing ovation and that he would be
    &gt; getting a poster size soft plaque with everyone's signature on it as
    &gt; soon as we know he is settled in Connecticut. I also told him about
    &gt; Aaron Russo's Movie, America: From Freedom to Fascism part 1, and
    &gt; how well it is being received across the country with overflowing
    &gt; crowds, bravos and standing ovations. See the New Trailer, America:
    &gt; From Freedom to Fascism click this link www.freedomtofascism.com and
    &gt; find out when it's playing in your area.
    &gt;
    &gt; ____________________
    &gt;
    &gt; The government is a tyrannical dictatorship and the DOJ/IRS is their
    &gt; flunky (do their dirty work) agency. They cannot be human. Humans
    &gt; have compassion for their fellow man. The government is occupied by
    &gt; and wallowing in the spirit of evil. This is not the way my America
    &gt; is supposed to be.
    &gt;
    &gt; The other day, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine
    &gt; that lives in a small town up north. I was telling her about all
    &gt; the cameras we have on our street corners. She told me, "oh! we
    &gt; don't have them here" I asked why not and she said, "everyone took
    &gt; their shotguns and blew them away. They have not been replaced."
    &gt; Sorry if I am repeating myself here, but, it's makes you think.
    &gt; Doesn't it?
    &gt;
    &gt; They only do to us what we allow them to do.

    As millions wring their hands search their souls for a reason why so much random violence, especially among youth, a handy list seems to explain it: SHRINKS AND DRUGS.

    As we look back to teg middle ages as a time of unchecked superstition and hoodoo, someday others will look back on our age as one dominated and eternallysabotaged by preistly classes. But would the medical, educational, psychiatric and legislative industries work foment crises together in order to bamboozle and disarm us?

    Naaah.

    <H3>Liberal Newspaper Editor: "Time to Admit the 'gun nuts' Are Right" </H3>


    http://bp0.blogger.com/_ycP_ygCuvzc/...I/AAAAAAAABmk/ aEyl2ZEb7nc/s1600-h/Dirty_harry.jpg http://bp0.blogger.com/_ycP_ygCuvzc/...I/AAAAAAAABmk/ aEyl2ZEb7nc/s1600-h/Dirty_harry.jpg Unbelievable. No kidding. Did you finally start thinking for yourself, Keith? And also, Keith, who you calling a 'gun nut'?


    By Keith C. Burris


    In the aftermath of the Petit family slayings in Cheshire, we all reached for explanations: How do human beings sink this low? How could this tragedy have been prevented? Why?

    There are so many nagging questions. They all need to be asked. And maybe some old arguments need to be hashed out again.

    Why not a more stringent "three strikes and you're out" law in this state? Connecticut's version is so weak that it's more like "30 strikes and we'll think about it while you strike again."

    Why not speed up the criminal trial process for repeat violent offenders? Get them off the streets. It's been proposed many times. Most people agree it should be done. It never happens.

    Can't we better monitor the probation process?

    Can't we do a better job of predicting -- figuring out which non-violent criminals are about to turn violent?

    Are home alarms really effective?

    How about dogs?

    But somehow all of these ideas pale before the barbarity of this particular crime.

    That is why one old question is worth asking again. It is this: What if the Second Amendment is for real? Is it possible that it should it be revered, just like the First Amendment?

    Sam Ervin said, "The Constitution should be taken like mountain whiskey -- undiluted and untaxed." Maybe that applies to all of the Constitution.

    Is it possible that the Second Amendment is not a quaint and antiquated remnant of a world that will never return, but an idea as relevant and sound today as when it was written?

    Is it possible that we are not talking about the right of the government to form a militia when there is no standing army, but the right of the individual to defend himself, or herself, against both tyranny and lawlessness? Maybe we are talking about the right of self-defense -- the right of the individual to take up arms against a government that wants to oppress, be it foreign or domestic. And the right of the individual to defend himself against criminals, brutes, and barbarians when local police seem unable to stop them.

    Might the Second Amendment matter almost as much as the First?

    I think the answer is yes.

    And just like the First, the Second is practical, newly relevant, and far wiser than the watered-down alternatives.

    I don't think George Bush wants to impose martial law on his fellow citizens. But he has diluted habeas corpus. And he has enlarged Big Brother. You have to stop and think about a government that wants to control the thoughts and behavior of its people.

    Should such a government be permitted to disarm them as well?

    And whereas the reform of the criminal justice system along some of the lines suggested above (a real "three strikes" law and faster trials for violent offenders) would not have saved the lives of Jennifer, and Hayley, and Michaela Petit, a gun might have.

    I don't say it would have.

    I say it might have.

    Had Dr. William Petit had access to a gun and known how to use it, he might have been able to dispatch the two perpetrators, who were armed with only an air gun and ropes.

    Moreover, the three victims here were women.

    What if Mrs. Hawke-Petit had been trained in the use of firearms? Suppose she had been able to get to a gun after her husband was beaten into unconsciousness by the invaders? Or when she was forced to take one captor to the bank to fetch him money?

    It's worth thinking about.

    Women and children are now the major targets of predators in our society. Government is not protecting them very well. Many professional women who work in cities know this and take courses in self-defense. A gun may be the only realistic self-defense against the sort of criminals we are talking about here.

    And if a few women took care of a few thugs in cases like this; if a few stories like this one ended in a different way -- with a woman blowing one of these brutes to kingdom come -- it might be a deterrent. Lives upon lives might be spared.

    A friend of mine said: "The gun nuts are back."

    They are.

    And they are right.

    Mind you, we are talking about arming people who are trained and know how to use a weapon.

    No one should have a gun who has not been trained.

    Just as one gets training in handling a boat, motorcycle, or car, one must learn how to use and safely store a gun. (The National Rifle Association maintains an extensive national network of programs in firearms training and education.)

    And, obviously, no one would be forced to own a gun.

    A second caveat: Encouraging citizens to arm themselves is no "answer" to crimes like the Petit murders.

    An "answer" does not exist.

    But it is one of several remedies when we are faced with palpable evil.

    All possible remedies should be on the table:

    -- Various reforms of the justice system, like a real three-strike-law for predatory offenders.

    -- Better psychological treatment for troubled youth.

    -- Religious training, in both love and self-restraint, especially when people are young.

    -- Prison programs that both retain the hard core and educate the educable.

    -- More and better home alarm systems.

    -- More cops visible in more neighborhoods.

    -- Dobermans.

    All of these approaches have merit.

    So does self-defense.

    None of these options "fix" a society that can produce human beings who torture and kill the defenseless for sport.

    No one step or program can plug every hole in America's justice system, or its soul.

    But there are times when a gun in the hands of a potential victim may save a life.

    Let's admit -- since the murderers, and druggies, and psychos, and thieves already have guns -- that arming the peaceful, law-abiding, decent, and productive people, whether in a school, or a private home, or on the way to a parked car, is an option that also has merit.

    All the Amendments are of equal wieght and must be viewed as such. This administration continues to violate our Constitutional rights:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by opening mail, caging demonstrators and banning books like
    America Deceived (book) from Amazon.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns during Katrina.
    They violate the 4th Amendment by conducting warrant-less wiretaps.
    They violate the 5th and 6th Amendment by suspending habeas corpus.
    They violate the 8th Amendment by torturing.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting 2 illegal wars based on lies and on behalf of a foriegn gov't.
    Support Dr. Ron Paul, he also values the Constitution.

    "HR 1 is about more than just pork. Millions of gun owners stand to lose their gun rights without any due process." Larry Pratt, GOA Executive Director



    Wednesday, February 11, 2009



    The Obama administration is putting a lot of pressure on Congress to slam through the most recent $800+ billion bailout package before anyone has an opportunity to read it.


    The Obama administration intones that the details are unimportant. The only thing that matters is the "bigness." And, by shipping a bill of nearly $900 billion (plus interest) to our children and grandchildren, the package is really, really big –- bigger, in fact, than the budget of our entire government for the first 170 years of our country’s existence.


    But now that some of the details are finally starting to leak out of Washington, Gun Owners -– and a lot of other analysts -– are beginning to look at the fine print. And some of it is particularly scary.


    Of particular concern to gun owners are sections 13101 through 13434 of HR 1, which would set up the infrastructure to computerize the medical records of ALL AMERICANS in a government-coordinated database.


    True, the bill doesn’t mandate that the data will be in a giant computer under the Oval Office. But it does mandate that your medical records be reduced to a computerized form which is available to it in a second.


    This it would do by establishing a National Coordinator for Health Information Technology –- tasked with, among other things, "providing information to help guide medical decisions at the time and place of care."


    It should be scary enough that a government bureaucrat is directed by statute to try to influence your doctor’s decisions with respect to your medical care.


    But of even greater concern to gun owners is the fact that a government-coordinated database (which government can freely access) will now contain all records of government-provided and private psychiatric treatment -– including, in particular, the drugs which were prescribed.


    Remember last year’s "NICS Improvement Act" otherwise known as the Veterans Disarmament Act? This law codified ATF’s attempts to make you a prohibited person on the basis of a government psychiatrist’s finding that you are a "danger" –- without a finding by any court. Well, roughly 150,000 battle-scarred veterans have already been unfairly stripped of their gun rights by the government.


    But people who, as kids, were diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder... or seniors with Alzheimer’s... or police with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder... or people who are now theoretically covered by the new law... these people have, generally, not suffered the consequences of its sanctions YET. And the chief reason is that their records are not easily available to the government in a central, easily retrievable, computerized form.


    The bailout bill would change all of that. It would push increasingly hard to force your private psychiatrist or government-sanctioned psychiatrist to turn over your psychiatric records to a massive database. This would be mandated immediately if your doctor does business with the government.


    This would supposedly save Medicare money in connection with medical treatment. And, the sponsors insist, they would work very hard to protect your privacy.


    But this turns the concept of "privacy" on its head. The privacy which is MOST important is privacy from the prying eyes of government –- not privacy of government data against the prying eyes of others. After all, many government data bases have been hacked in recent years, with mountains of information stolen.


    So, once the government has access to these computerized psychiatric records, the stage will be set for using that database to take away the gun rights of those with Alzheimer’s, those with ADD, and those with PTSD.


    ACTION
    : Write your two senators. Urge them to vote against the bailout bill (HR 1) until it is stripped of provisions which would turn your psychiatric records over to a central government-coordinated database against your will without you getting your day in court.


    You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

    - Prewritten Letter -

    Dear Senator:


    I am particularly concerned about sections 13101 through 13434 of the new bailout bill (HR 1). These sections would set up the infrastructure to computerize the medical records of ALL AMERICANS in a government-coordinated database, including psychiatric records.


    It is scary enough that a government bureaucrat is directed by statute to try to influence my doctor’s decisions with respect to my medical care.


    But of even greater concern to gun owners is the fact that a government-coordinated database will now contain all records of government-provided and private psychiatric treatment.


    Last year’s "NICS Improvement Act" codified ATF’s attempts to make a person a prohibited person on the basis of a government psychiatrist’s finding that he is a "danger" –- without a finding by any court. Well, roughly 150,000 battle-scarred veterans have already been unfairly stripped of their gun rights by the government.


    Now, this new government-coordinated database threatens the gun rights of people who, as kids, were diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder... seniors with Alzheimer’s... police with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder... and many other law-abiding Americans.


    Please vote against cloture on HR 1 until this provision is removed. </TD></TR></T></TABLE>

    Obama secretly ends program that let pilots carry guns
    Source: Washington Times
    URL Source: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news ... -secretly-ends-program-that-l/
    Published: Mar 17, 2009

    After the September 11 attacks, commercial airline pilots were allowed to carry guns if they completed a federal-safety program. No longer would unarmed pilots be defenseless as remorseless hijackers seized control of aircraft and rammed them into buildings.


    Now President Obama is quietly ending the federal firearms program, risking public safety on airlines in the name of an anti-gun ideology.


    The Obama administration this past week diverted some $2 million from the pilot training program to hire more supervisory staff, who will engage in field inspections of pilots.


    This looks like completely unnecessary harassment of the pilots. The 12,000 Federal Flight Deck Officers, the pilots who have been approved to carry guns, are reported to have the best behavior of any federal law enforcement agency. There are no cases where any of them has improperly brandished or used a gun. There are just a few cases where officers have improperly used their IDs.


    Fewer than one percent of the officers have any administrative actions brought against them and, we are told, virtually all of those cases “are trumped up.”


    Take a case against one flight officer who had visited the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles within the last few weeks. While there, the pilot noticed that federal law enforcement officers can, with the approval of a superior, obtain a license plate that cannot be traced, a key safety feature for law enforcement personnel. So the pilot asked if, as a member of the federal program, he was eligible. The DMV staffer checked and said “no.” The next day administrative actions were brought against the pilot for “misrepresenting himself.” These are the kinds of cases that President Obama wants to investigate.


    Since Mr. Obama's election, pilots have told us that the approval process for letting pilots carry guns on planes slowed significantly. Last week the problem went from bad to worse. Federal Flight Deck Officers - the pilots who have been approved to carry guns - indicate that the approval process has stalled out.


    Pilots cannot openly speak about the changing policies for fear of retaliation from the Transportation Security Administration. Pilots who act in any way that causes a “loss of confidence” in the armed pilot program risk criminal prosecution as well as their removal from the program. Despite these threats, pilots in the Federal Flight Deck Officers program have raised real concerns in multiple interviews.


    Arming pilots after Sept. 11 was nothing new. Until the early 1960s, American commercial passenger pilots on any flight carrying U.S. mail were required to carry handguns. Indeed, U.S. pilots were still allowed to carry guns until as recently as 1987. There are no records that any of these pilots (either military or commercial) ever causing any significant problems.


    Screening of airplane passengers is hardly perfect. While armed marshals are helpful, the program covers less than 3 percent of the flights out of Washington D.C.'s three airports and even fewer across the country. Sky marshals are costly and quit more often than other law-enforcement officers.


    Armed pilots are a cost-effective backup layer of security. Terrorists can only enter the cockpit through one narrow entrance, and armed pilots have some time to prepare themselves as hijackers penetrate the strengthened cockpit doors. With pilots, we have people who are willing to take on the burden of protecting the planes for free. About 70 percent of the pilots at major American carriers have military backgrounds.


    Frankly, as a matter of pure politics, we cannot understand what the administration is thinking. Nearly 40 House Democrats are in districts were the NRA is more popular than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. We can't find any independent poll in which the public is demanding that pilots disarm. Why does this move make sense?


    Only anti-gun extremists and terrorist recruits are worried about armed pilots. So why is the Obama administration catering to this tiny lobby at the expense of public safety?

    Don’t buy gold buy ammunition
    Yes, our economy is in trouble. Our currency is losing value daily. Many experts predict a meltdown in the near future. So is gold the answer? When money is no good, can you whittle off a fragment of gold to buy a sack of cornmeal or beans. No, gold is not a practical medium of exchange for everyday purchases, but ammunition is. Maybe a 12-gage shell will buy a few eggs, or a .22 long rifle will buy a pound of salt. Ammunition comes in small tradable quantities. It will have sustained value because the government will have outlawed it. Another reason to invest in ammunition is you can use it to defend yourself. Imagine an America void of sovereignty, deep in poverty, and dominated by foreign power. Then see an awakening, a rebirth of the American spirit, a revolution by people willing to lay their lives on the line to regain freedom. That is the setting for Bloodrose.
    Enjoy heart-pounding excitement and page-turning suspense as the characters in Bloodrose struggle to survive the most perilous of times. Along the way they find love in the midst of hate, friendship in a time of betrayal, and hope rising out of despair. The setting for Bloodrose is America in the not-too-distant future. The characters are fictional. The events could happen. Pray they don’t! Click on the Amazon links below to start enjoying a great read.

    An article entitled "Firearm saves life of Toledo clerk"

    December Long, a female clerk at a Toledo convenience store, was shot and wounded by a rampaging thug. However, she was able to return fire with her own gun. There is no doubt that having a handgun saved her life.

    This is exactly the kind of victim that Jesse Jackson is fighting to disarm with his resent lawsuit.

    The perpetrator was a violent ex-con who had recently been released from prison. He was living in a nearby half-way house.
