Gun Free Zone for thee, but not for me

Gun Free Zone for thee, but not for me

From James O’Keefe (via Charlie Spiering):

Veritas video reporter James O’Keefe has released a new video of his team posing as an anti-gun group promoting an initiative to journalists.

At each home, the group dubbed as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence” asks each homeowner if they are willing to put up a “Gun Free” sign in their yard.

O’Keefe primarily focuses his efforts on employees of the Journal-News – the New York newspaper that published a controversial map of registered gun owners online.

Armed security welcomes the Veritas team at some of the homes, hired by some of the newspaper’s employees to protect them after bloggers retaliated by posting their names and addresses online.

O’Keefe also approaches other journalists at their homes such as columnists from the New Jersey Star-Leger and even Toure from MSNBC.

The team even tries the home of US Attorney Eric Holder – and are quickly met by a police officer.

In other news, NY is about to pass the most highly restrictive gun law in the country, Bill called ‘toughest gun control package in the nation’ passed by New York  Senate:

Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two “military  rifle” features spelled out in the law. The proposal would reduce that to one  feature and include the popular pistol grip.

Private sales of assault weapons to someone other than an immediate family  would be subject to a background check through a dealer. Also Internet sales of  assault weapons would be banned, and failing to safely store a weapon could be  subject to a misdemeanor charge.

Ammunition magazines would be restricted to seven bullets, from the current  10, and current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell  them out of state. An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a  magazine could face a misdemeanor charge.

In another provision, a therapist who believes a mental health patient made a  credible threat to use a gun illegally would be required to report the incident  to a mental health director who would have to report serious threats to the  state Department of Criminal Justice Services. A patient’s gun could be taken  from him or her.

Prediction — the real criminals will not care. No lives will be saved. Otherwise law-abiding citizens will become criminals by definition of law.

Ban the assault media, bunch of hypocrites

Uh hoh geez…that was hilarious,especially the part with Toure stuttering at the thought of having to live up to his own sanctimonious rhetoric.
What was even more funny was how quickly and forcefully all those newspaper people had their security chase anyone away from their own private property.
Their privacy is sacred while they have no problem exposing the privacy of others.

That is what I call journalism.

“The team even tries the home of US Attorney Eric Holder – and are quickly met by a police officer.”

Hola! mi nam es José Jiménez an i frm Juarez and i wan a new gun, Senor. Thes old juan, shesa’ stink..

This is the PERFECT opportunity!…

… for my Governor – Rick Perry.

Bob Braun’s letter-writing friend gets it— the purpose of the Second Amendment is to protect citizens from tyranny. His problem is that he doesn’t believe that lefty statism is tyranny. Jackboots for me but not for thee.

Recently recieved an email from the Ruger CEO about Protecting Our Rights. It contained a link to a page on the Ruger Website that enables anyone to easily send a letter to your Representatives. Since this seems to fit so well with the current topic I just thought I’d add it here:

My prediction is that all these new gun restrictions will do is drive gun ownership underground. The black market for guns will explode, making it all that much more difficult and expensive for law-abiding citizens to own a gun, but doing nothing to prevent criminals from obtaining them. And in coming years our elected officials will point to the drastic decline in gun registrations as proof that their policies worked, when in fact it’s simply because no one will bother to register their weapons anymore. And so perversely the new laws will have the exact opposite effect than that intended. Just like everything else the government does.

“If gun control works, Chicago ought to be safe,” said Gingrich.

Elegant logic. Succinct. Unimpeachable.

Otherwise law-abiding citizens will become criminals by definition of law.

Except for the David Gregory Exemption, which covers those who are obviously not criminals.

Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two “military rifle” features spelled out in the law. The proposal would reduce that to one feature and include the popular pistol grip.

This is just stupid.

Glad to see these asshats reaping exactly what they sowed all over every resident within two NY counties.

Karma can be such a b!tch.

A REALITY TV version of MacGyver would have been shot in every episode, while devising intricate means to avoid using a gun. If that MacGyver had been at Sandy Hook, he’d be dead.

The Hollywood concept that “good” somehow always magically prevails over “evil” is another wrong and dangerous Hollywood message.

And good guys with little guns don’t defeat five bad guys with big guns, except in the movies. The woman hiding in the closet with her kids, that recently shot an intruder five times, would have been better served with 15 rounds in her gun. What if the bad guy was not alone?

The only good that may come of this is Democrats shooting themselves in their own foot, out of ignorance, arrogance, and disregard for the lives of children of the “non-elite”.

This is unconstitutional. I hope NYers fight back. But then, I doubt they will cuz they’re a bunch of Democrat morons happy to be told what to do, what to eat, how not to defend themselves in the SSSNY.

And here you can sign the White House petition to:

“Eliminate armed guards for the President, Vice-President, and their families, and establish Gun Free Zones around them.”

Welp, guess it’s time to report all my guns stolen.

New York has a lot of smart people…. Yet, they put up with this massive amount of garbage and abridgement of the freedoms and rights. Could someone tell me why there aren’t more corporate moving vans leaving New York? Why do intelligent business people continue to subsidize the behavior of Bloomberg and his pals?

“The NY SAFE Act would adjust the definition of a banned assault rifle so that any single characteristic — such as a telescoping stock, flash suppressor, bayonet attachment or pistol grip — on a semiautomatic rifle would render it illegal.”

So, which of these features make a rifle more deadly?
Answer: None of them.

When you know what they’re enacting isn’t going to solve anything, you also know they’ll be back for more very soon.

TAke a look here to see just what kind of guns the secret service is currently using to protect their assignment:
“…the trunk monkey’s primary weapon is a tactical AR carbine/subcarbine/SBR (AR-15 carbine/subcarbine/SBR) with a barrel that appears to be approx. 12.5-14.5 inches in length. It’s most likely a KAC SR-16, which is a Colt M4A1 Carbine (select-fire, direct-gas-impingement)-derivative weapon. “KAC” stands for Knight’s Armament Company. From the photo, it doesn’t look like an HK416 (also written HK 416) gas piston/op-rod carbine or SBR (Short Barelled Rifle)/subcarbine. The weapon is outfitted with some tactical accessories, including what appears to be an Aimpoint CompM2 – M68/CCO or CompM3 red dot optical gunsight/combat optic, although it’s got some weird stuff happening on the top/rear/right (from the operator’s perspective/POV). It doesn’t appear to be the more advanced Aimpoint CompM4 or CompM4S. The weapon is also equipped with a front flip-up BUIS (Back Up Iron Sight) that we presume is co-witnessed with the red dot optic. There’s most likely also a rear flip-up BUIS that’s being blocked by the operator’s right hand.

Mounted on the Mil-Std-1913 “Picatinny” (quad) rail system/forend rail tube at the 3-o’clock position is an Insight Technology ATPIAL (Advanced Target Pointer/ Illuminator/ Aiming Light) a.k.a. AN/PEQ-15 (NSN #: 5855-01-534-5931) Visible/IR (infrared) laser aimer/illuminator, which is a nice unit. The AN/PEQ-15/ATPIAL is currently in use with U.S. military Special Operations Forces (SOF) units, including U.S. Army Special Forces (SF) units, overseas.

At the rail’s 6-o’clock position is a tactical white light, possibly a Surefire M900 Series Vertical Foregrip WeaponLight or some other type of Surefire WeaponLight designed for rifles, carbines and subcarbines/short-barreled rifles (SBRs), but it could also be a different brand tactical weapons light. We can’t tell from the photo. The operator’s left hand appears to be grasping a vertical foregrip. The 30-round magazine appears to have a dual mag clamp of some kind on it (like a Buffer Technologies AR-15 MAG CINCH for 30-round mags, for instance) for a fast/immediate weapon reload. No doubt, the tactical body armor carrier sytem the operator is wearing incorporates multiple AR-15 mag pouches, most-likely at least 6-12 spare loaded 30-round mags (5.56mm AR mags) in them, with more spare loaded mags stored inside the vehicle…”

Of those 19 executive orders, which one waivers this detail?

It is the definition of moral bankruptcy to use the deaths of twenty children as a pretext to justify this type of legislation.

We can always visit Mexico to repurchase the guns redistributed by our federal government.

WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Help, please. I just bought my first 10/22 rifle, a Ruger based on the model used by the Olympic Shooting Team. Magazine is 10 rounds.

Does this friggin law mean:

1 – I have to sell the rifle out of state within the year or decide to just eat the cost and put it in mothballs or:

2 – I can use it as long as I put only 7 bullets in the mag?

For real, help!

ARGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want out of NYS.

FTR, I read one reason Crapo rammed the bill through – without anyone having a chance to read it (sound familiar) was to beat his prospective 2016 dim POTUS rival, Biden, to the punch. I would not doubt it.

Some feedback in no particular order.

Ball balks at bill.

A New York State Senator has lambasted the passing of what is being called the nation’s toughest gun control bill, saying that it was introduced during the middle of the night, and that members were forced to vote on the legislation when they had not even had a chance to read it.

“I simply cannot support a bill that turns law abiding citizens into criminals by creating an entire new category of illegal firearms out of currently legal rifles and shotguns,” said Senator Greg Ball in a statement. “…the last minute push, in the middle of the night without critical
public input from sportsmen and taxpayers was outrageous and forced members to vote on a bill they had not read.” Ball noted.

*****************************************************
The NY SAFE Act would adjust the definition of a banned
assault rifle so that any single characteristic — such as a telescoping stock,flash suppressor, bayonet attachment or pistol grip — on a semiautomatic rifle
would render it illegal.
**************************************************

The maximum capacity of an ammunition magazine would be
reduced from 10 rounds to seven, and a current exemption for clips manufactured before 1994 will end.

*************************************************
Crapo has taken his cue from the pos. Remember the O-care “We have to pass it so you can learn what’s in it” bill?
*******************************

Cuomo told reporters, without providing specifics, that the
reason the legislation was being pushed through quickly was to avoid a potential run on sales of such weapons.
The traditional three-day waiting period for a bill’s
adoption is being waived by the Democrat-controlled Assembly, again citing a need to rush the bill through to avoid a rush on gun purchases. The Assembly is expected to approve the bill today without hesitation, paving the way for
similar gun control measures on a national scale.
***************************************************

Senator John J. Bonacic, who also opposed the legislation, called it “nothing more than window dressing designed to make people feel secure until the next tragedy strikes – all while criminalizing the actions of otherwise law abiding citizens.”
In prepared comments,Bonacic noted ” In reading the summary of the legislation provided (my comments below are based on how the legislation has been explained,
because the print of the bill has not been shown to Legislators as I write this – 8 PM on January 14), it appears law abiding citizens would become criminals – eligible to be sent to jail, simply by failing to tell the government they own guns they lawfully purchased.”

“Equally problematic is the provision in the legislation prohibiting more than seven rounds in a ten round magazine – something irrelevant to a criminal.” Bonacic also stated.
“Under the legislation, magazines people now own, which are capable of holding ten rounds (bullets) continue to be legal, but a person may only load seven rounds in them. It strains credibility to believe a criminal bent on a massacre is going to load only seven bullets in a ten round magazine. Law abiding citizens, on the other hand, who erroneously load too many bullets in a magazine, would be criminals
under the legislation.” the Senator concluded.

The bill was debated in closed door meetings, and if adopted by the New York State Assembly it will see enforced limits on magazines, mandatory license renewal for gun owners every five years, stiffer penalties for bringing guns on school property or using a gun to commit acrime and further restrictions on guns that have been termed “assault
weapons”.

“Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two ‘military rifle’ features spelled out in the law. The proposal would reduce that to one feature and include the popular pistol grip,” CBS reports.
Ammunition magazines would be restricted to seven bullets, from the current 10, and current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell them out of state. An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a magazine could face a misdemeanor charge.

A fine Fund find…!!! Heh!
