‘Progressives’ blaming NRA over Ebola spread diverting blame from themselves

"The thing about Ebola, and as MSNBC also added into the mix, 'the mysterious Enterovirus, which is infecting and contributing to the deaths of children in the U.S.,' is that the cases in this country appear directly attributable to “progressive” policies that refuse to make rational choices regarding who may enter from foreign lands."

"Curious thing about these religious anti-gun 'progressive' UN-types: The global citizen disarmament they espouse is precisely what so many governments have counted on to enact genocide against captive populations. Even more curious is how many of those regimes -- just like the modern 'progressive' movement -- were hostile to religion, to the point of trying to wipe out those who practiced it."
 

Life Changing: What You Missed at Gun Rights Policy Conference!

A simple idea brought hundreds of us to the Gun Rights Policy Conference. We want our neighbors to arrive home safely every night. That is why we work for the right of self-defense and firearm ownership. There are ways to get involved in that effort even if you’re an ordinary guy or gal. Looking back over several years, an ordinary guy like me had a conversion experience climbing the ladder of commitment. It is a well worn path that many have people have climbed before. In hindsight, I see each conference was a stepping stone.

The 2015 conference is in Phoenix, Arizona. I hope to see you there.
 

DC: Here’s Where You Still Can’t Legally Carry a Gun in the District

Mayor Vince Gray signed emergency legislation last night that would define, at least temporarily, who can legally obtain a license to carry a gun in public and where these legal guns can be carried. The legislation comes in response to a July federal court decision that overturned the District's longstanding total ban on carry guns in public. The judge ultimately issued a 90-day stay on the ruling, giving city officials time to pass legislation to ensure that hordes of residents don't run around the city with guns ablaze.

Shortly after protests erupted in Ferguson, Mo., over the shooting death of an unarmed, black 18-year-old by a white police officer, the phones at companies that manufacture body cameras started ringing non-stop.

At Seattle-based VIEVU, which has sold the cameras to more than 4,000 law enforcement agencies, CEO Steve Ward says requests for test units are up 70% since the Ferguson protests, and September was the highest sales month in the company's history. "We're doubling our sales force to keep up," Ward said.

No charges will be filed in the shooting death of James Ivey by his son, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office announced on Friday.

Investigators ruled Kyle Ivey acted in self defense when he shot James Ivey during a domestic dispute at 4524 Gore Road Oct. 4. Kyle Ivey returned home unaware of a domestic dispute between James Ivey and Kyle Ivey’s mother, Amy, the BCSO release said.
 

AR: Interpretations of Arkansas’s amended carry law tested in court

For more than a year, controversy has surrounded Arkansas’s Act 746, which some interpret as removing restrictions for open and concealed carry in The Natural State. Legislators and law enforcement officials are divided on how to interpret the law, but a current court case may very well set the precedent and clarify what exactly the law allows.

Derrick Brown, 28, challenged the law in a Lonoke County court Wednesday by entering a not guilty plea to his charge of the illegal carrying of a firearm, a Class A misdemeanor.
 

MO: Attorney gains firearms permit for man disqualified for gun ownership; Had been disqualified in Missouri after stroke

Dr. George L. Kraft III, a chiropractor in St. Louis County, is now the owner of a .357 revolver with a six-inch barrel after his attorney successfully challenged Missouri statutes and federal classification that prohibited Kraft from owning a firearm.

The state of Missouri disqualified Kraft from the right to own firearms after he suffered a stroke in 2005 until attorney Christopher J. Zellers of the Zellers Law Firm, LLC, gained a judgment in St. Louis County Circuit Court overturning the disqualification after an 18-month legal process.

What if large groups of African-American men carrying shotguns and semi-automatic rifles started moseying into stores across America to tout their support of open-carry gun laws?

Would they be greeted by the same anxious looks shoppers gave groups of armed white men who did the same this summer at Target stores and chain restaurants like Chipotle? Or something more lethal?
 

Gun Control Rants Had 'Diminishing Effectiveness'

Piers Morgan, in his war of words with former employer CNN, admitted his rants for more gun control became increasingly less effective.

Writing in The Hollywood Reporter, Morgan discusses the "prolonged, visceral on-air battle with the NRA" that he waged after the Sandy Hook tragedy and concedes that toward the end of his tenure, he was "shouting at the same people about the same thing with diminishing effectiveness." Morgan is reportedly still in talks to develop a movie about the need for more gun control in America.
 

AL: Alabama School Forces 5 Y/O To Sign “Suicide Contract” Over Gun Drawing

An Alabama mother is furious that her 5-year-old daughter was forced to sign a school contract stating she wouldn’t kill herself or anyone else at school.

School officials told Rebecca, who did not want to give her last name, they had to send 5-year-old Elizabeth home after an incident in class.

“They told me she drew something that resembled a gun. According to them she pointed a crayon at another student and said ‘pew pew’,” Rebecca explained.

Rebecca says her daughter was then given a questionnaire to evaluate her for suicidal thoughts and given a Mobile County Public School safety contract to sign stating she wouldn’t kill herself or others.
 

CA: Family Members Can Ask Court to Seize Guns from Unstable Loved Ones

Prior to his planned shooting, Elliot had legally acquired three guns, and his parents had repeatedly warned police of his unstable condition.

California has recognized that “family members are the ones who most acutely understand when their loved ones are in a dangerous situation,” according to the executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Josh Horwitz, and thus, has now become the first state of the country to allow them to ask for a court order seizing firearms. In other states only law enforcement officials have the right to do so.
 

DC: Gray Signs D.C. Handgun Law to ‘Cure Alleged Constitutional Flaws’

With little fanfare, Mayor Vincent Gray signed legislation Thursday evening legalizing the concealed carry of handguns in the District of Columbia in response to a lawsuit brought against the city by Second Amendment advocates.

Under the terms of a stay in the Palmer v. District of Columbia ruling, District officials have until Oct. 22 to issue regulations related to the law, including how they will enforce a provision that outlaws carrying guns within 1,000 feet of any foreign dignitary or high-ranking federal official. The July 26 ruling briefly wiped the city’s ban on handguns from the books, something the House tried to do this summer with an appropriations rider.
 

VA: NRA on Sen. Warner and gun rights

The NRA says Senator Mark Warner supported restrictions on veterans' second amendment rights. That's a new message sent out in mailboxes all last month.

We looked into the claim to see if the NRA is telling the truth.

If a VA hospital says a veteran is mentally unstable, the veteran's name is put on a list and shared with the FBI. Warner voted against getting rid of that policy, right after the tragedy at Sandy Hook.

Two competing measures on the Washington state ballot this fall ask voters to take a stance on expanded background checks for gun sales. One is seeking universal checks for all sales and transfers, including private transactions. The other would prevent any such expansion.

Supporters of the initiative to expand background checks have received large donations from wealthy figures, including Microsoft co-founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen, and have spent millions, far outpacing the anti-expansion effort.

Less than 24 hours after GOP congressional candidate Mark Greenberg said he favored universal FBI background checks for those seeking to purchase firearms, the National Rifle Association dropped his rating from an ‘A’ to an ‘F.”

The NRA also disputed Greenberg’s contention that he didn't fill out an NRA questionnaire on his views, saying he had done so when seeking the 5th District seat in 2012.

Kentucky Democrat Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes has made quite the show of being a Second Amendment supporter in hopes of wooing some support from gun owners in conservative Kentucky, but campaign memos designed to help Grimes prep for interviews with news media in the state show that she is actually in favor of passing more pointless gun control laws.
 

WA: Update: State GOP endorses 591, opposes 594; antis running scared?

Reader Tom Jones pointedly asked, “Why does it take $10 million to pass something that ‘the overwhelming majority of Washington voters already support’? Especially when the opposition is mostly volunteers passing out bumper stickers and photocopied flyers that just explain what I-594 would actually do.”

Why, indeed? Perhaps the answer can be found on YouTube, where yesterday the National Rifle Association launched another video, this one featuring Seattleite Anette Wachter, a member of the U.S. Long Range Rifle Team. Her message focuses on the law enforcement opposition to I-594, the 18-page gun control measure against which grassroots activists are gaining traction.

Voters in Washington state will soon weigh in on two competing measures dealing with background checks on gun sales.

Initiative 594 would expand background checks to all gun sales and transfers in Washington state, including at gun shows and person-to-person sales. Initiative 591 would prevent the state from adopting background-check laws that go beyond the national standard, which requires the checks for sales by licensed dealers but not for purchases from private sellers.

Here's a look at some facts surrounding the current law.

The Marine veteran who was imprisoned in Mexico after declaring several guns and a few hundred rounds of ammunition at the Mexican border is still being tried in a Mexican court, but could also face charges in California, Marine Corps Times reported.

Though Andrew Tahmooreesi’s Mexican lawyer, Fernando Benitez, is confident the court will see his client freed, U.S. lawmakers say the former sergeant could be brought up on charges for bringing loaded weapons into California.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. — Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
