"Department of Justice claims of privilege due to ongoing criminal investigations in a gun trafficking case involving Mexican cartels, wiretap applications, smuggled guns showing up at murder scenes, official corruption … it would seem a parallel in many ways to the yet unfolding Fast and Furious debacle."

"We alerted you recently to how our country’s representatives to the United Nations – in less than 24 hours after the President’s reelection – cast a vote in favor of producing a UN gun control treaty in March, 2013."

"The full-throttled march towards gun control has begun."

"Liberal media outlets are now going to bat for the Administration and trying to convince Americans that the UN Arms Trade Treaty will not affect average gun owners. ..." ...

In short, the federal government owes more money than the entire nation is worth.

And this is why some economists, citizens, and astute political observers are convinced that the United States is headed not only for another economic slowdown but a complete collapse, a financial disaster so dire that not only will the nation be plunged into another Great Depression but that depression will be so severe that the suffering will be immeasurably worse than the 1930s due to the fact that in the 30s the nation did not have the debt load it now carries.

Such a scenario will create conditions that are ripe for violence.

A California man was jailed for four days for attempting to record police officers on a public street.

Daniel J. Saulmon was charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer but the video shows he was standing well out the way of a traffic stop and was only arrested when he failed to produce identification to an approaching officer.

And there is no law in California that requires citizens to produce identification. And even if there was, it would require the officer to have a reasonable suspicion that he was committing a crime.

Last week, the owner of an Arizona gun shop made national headlines after it was reported that he had posted a sign and taken out a full page ad in a local newspaper that banned Obama supporters from entering his store. One week later, Cope Reynolds is cashing in on the attention.
Mr. Reynolds, owner of Southwest Shooting Authority says “business is booming” after his sign and newspaper ad caught the attention of various media outlets. The sign read: “If you voted for Barack Obama, your business is not welcome at Southwest Shooting Authority. You have proven you’re not responsible enough to own a firearm.”
Reynolds says he has been inundated with hundreds of calls and emails from media types and supporters.

In this episode Frank Fiamingo, President of the New Jersey Second Amendment has a conversations with Paul. The topics cover the elections earlier in the month, the efforts at gun control that started immediately after the elections and what has been going on recently with NJ2AS and the cleanup from hurricane Sandy.

In the Second interview Kathy Jackson joins Toby and Paul. The topic is slaughtering the sacred cow, and several sacred cows were put down in this one. Is a handgun’s primary purpose to fight to get to a long gun? Is a Revolver more reliable than a Semi-Auto? Should you shoot to kill? All of this and more are addressed in Kathy’s segment.

MN: No blanket immunity for self-defense killings in Minn.

Minnesota law allows citizens to use deadly force in self-defense, but only under certain circumstances which may be subject to interpretation by a trial jury.

There's no blanket immunity for people who kill intruders in their homes, and no "castle doctrine" in the traditional sense of the term.

Minnesotans do not have a "duty to retreat" in the face of a threat inside their homes, but they may be called upon to prove that the killing was justified.
 

Industry, outdoors groups urge passage of Sportsmen’s Act

Sometime today, the U.S. Senate is supposed to be voting on the proposed Sportsmen’s Act of 2012, and currently there is a push to get sportsmen and women, and other recreational shooters, to contact the Senate and urge passage of S. 3525.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation and The Outdoor Wire, there is some misinformation floating across the landscape that passage of this measure will somehow allow the government to seize private land. In an e-mail with Larry Keane, vice president and general counsel for the NSSF early Monday, he called the land seizure a “baseless claim.”

Moreover, the NRA lost. Both Obama and Baldwin won in Wisconsin with comfortable margins and Wisconsin is a state rich in hunting tradition.

Then there's the demographics. Most gun owners are middle-aged white guys, like me. Message to my brothers-in-arms: we're the minority and we're getting more minor all the time. The NRA and its wholly owned subsidiary, the Republican Party, have topped out on white guys. They got more votes out of my people then ever before and still lost the election. Increasingly, you win elections by appealing to women, Hispanics, African Americans, gays. All groups that support (PDF) more gun control.

Take the longer view. Ebay blocked firearms from being listed. Paypal blocks the use of its service for buying guns. Google blocks guns, dealers and makers from searches in its shopping service. We have reports of banks closing the accounts of gun makers simply on the basis that they won’t do business with the firearms industry.

Each of these is a very public way of saying “We don’t do business with ‘those people’.” Each is a way of saying that reasonable and responsible people should have nothing to do with the firearms business. We are being put into the same box as pornography.

Pam Bates has grown anxious of the crime in her Chesterfield County neighborhood and is determined to do more than just worry about it. She plans to buy a gun for self-defense and obtain a state permit to carry it concealed.

“I can no longer defend myself or my property with a (Maglite) flashlight,” Bates half-joked, minutes after completing a basic pistol instruction class with 10 other students — four of them women — at the Colonial Shooting Academy in Henrico County. “The home invasion four doors down and the attempted break-ins (in the neighborhood) makes me nervous, makes me angry.”

China, the United Kingdom, and Germany all voted to move the historic measure toward passage.

As we have reported, when the treaty was being deliberated in July, the United States was the only obstacle preventing the global arms control regulations from being imposed on the world.

Miraculously, however, all the points of the agreement Secretary Clinton found so distasteful in the summer were made so much more palatable after President Obama’s reelection, and every single attack on the right to bear arms remains in the version of the treaty approved on November 7.

A Little Falls man is charged with murder after an apparent home invasion, and the incident is raising questions across the state. Self defense laws can be confusing for many people, and Saint Louis County Attorney Mark Rubin explained what's legal in Minnesota.

"It's not an automatic," Rubin said. "Just because someone comes into your home, doesn't mean you can kill them."

Ed.: Time for Minnesota to pass a castle law.

Smith said he dragged Schaeffel’s body into his basement workshop, then sat down on his chair. After a few minutes, Kifer began coming down the stairs and he shot her as soon as her hips appeared, he said.

After shooting her with both the Mini 14 and the .22-caliber revolver, he dragged her next to Schaeffel. With her still gasping for air, he fired a shot under her chin “up into the cranium,” the complaint says.

“Smith described it as ‘a good clean finishing shot,’” according to the complaint.

Ed.: MN doesn't have a castle law (it should), but even if it did, it wouldn't justify such barbarism.
 

IL: Illinois Federal Court Upholds RKBA & Awards the NRA $125,000

On September 26, 2012 the United States District Court in the Northern District of Illinois awarded the National Rifle Association (NRA) $125,000 to reimburse it for attorney’s fees spent winning a lawsuit against the City of Chicago over a Chicago firearm ordinance on behalf of NRA member Shawn Gowder.

In striking down the law, the Court held that the ordinance is unconstitutionally void for vagueness and also violates the plaintiff’s Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. A copy of the court filings in this case and the $125,000 check from the City of Chicago can be viewed here.

Valinda Rowe, spokeswoman for gun-owner advocacy group Illinois Carry, acknowledged that there is a divide between Illinois’ urban and rural residents on gun control issues. But she said her statewide organization’s constituents come from all walks of life.

...

The house bill would require gun owners to obtain concealed carry licenses and take firearm safety courses. It would also prohibit concealed weapons in most government buildings, including schools and libraries. The bill fell six votes short of the required three-fifths majority in a house vote in May.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their luscious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. This, sir, is what I long for. -- General Francis Marion, American War of Independence, Georgetown, SC [Source: 'Marion, The Life of Gen. Francis Marion' by M. L. Weems, Ch.18]
