Holodomor: Food as a Government Weapon

To Stalin, the burgeoning national revival movement and continuing loss of influence was completely unacceptable. To crush the people's free spirit, he began to employ the same methods he had successfully used within the Soviet Union... On Stalin's orders, foodstuffs were shipped out to the Soviet Union until there was simply no food remaining to feed the people of the Ukraine.

While police and Communist Party officials remained quite well fed, desperate Ukrainians killed dogs, cats, frogs, mice and birds, then cooked them. Others resorted to cannibalism...

Relevance?

Given widespread resistance to tyranny, is there any question that the New Collectivists would hesitate to use food as a weapon to subdue American patriots?

Next time you walk into your favorite Alabama restaurant, look around. Chances are that two-thirds of the customers will own a gun and nearly half will have a permit to carry a concealed weapon into the establishment. That's according to the results of a new Press-Register/University of South Alabama poll. Sixty-six percent of respondents said they own a gun and 46 percent have a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The telephone survey of 424 Alabama residents was conducted Monday through Thursday, with a 5-percentage-point margin of error.

The Colonel . . . replied in a voice of flint, "Captain this order originated in the E-Ring. The Corps Commander protested it and was overruled. I assure you that you have less stoke in this outfit than General Mackey. You understand why these people want our rations, don't you?"

Of course O'Toole knew. Anybody who read the front page of any newspaper in the United States knew. The Feds and the Brightfire mercenaries carrying out Operation Clean Sweep had started turning up poisoned by their own rations. Thousands had sickened, hundreds had died. Some mess hall or supply chain perpetrators had been caught, but many had not. They no longer can trust their own food so they need ours, and they need it fast.
 

U.S. Position Complicates Global Effort to Curb Illicit Arms

Diplomats from the world’s governments met throughout this week on agreements to cut the global illicit trade in small arms, but their work was curtailed in part by the near-boycott of the meetings by the United States. The tone of the meetings underscored the political complexities of gaining full support for international small-arms agreements from the United States. The American view has balanced recognition of the dangers of illegal proliferation with the government’s own arms-distribution practices and with the American gun lobby’s resistance to the United Nations’ proposals.
 

How a Young Lawyer Saved the Second Amendment

For decades the Second Amendment might as well have been called the Second-Class Amendment. The U.S. Supreme Court spent the late 20th century expansively interpreting the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Eighth amendments, not to mention unenumerated rights ranging from travel to sexual privacy. But not until last month did the court hold that the Second Amendment means what it says: that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

What took so long? I put the question to Alan Gura, the 37-year-old wunderkind lawyer who represented the plaintiffs in District of Columbia v. Heller.

Gerry Rubbo is neither as famous a target shooter as Annie Oakley, nor as outrageous a character as Calamity Jane. Like those two lady sharpshooters, however, the Summit Station resident has gained a reputation on the local, state and national levels as a sharpshooter. Rubbo has earned her reputation competing with firearms that both Annie and Calamity would have been familiar using — muzzleloading rifles. Taking it a step further, most of the rifles she shoots have been built by her or her husband, Bob, in the workshop at their log home located on the Blue Mountain within a 20-mile radius of three forts used during the French and Indian War.
 

FL: Florida gun law crosses the line

Edwin Sotomayor is the crash-test dummy in an upcoming legal collision between the National Rifle Association and Disney World. The 36-year-old was fired last week from his job as an unarmed security guard at the Orlando theme park after he took his .45-caliber handgun to work, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Under a new Florida law, people in the Sunshine State can carry their "legally owned firearms" to work as long as they leave them locked inside their vehicles. Exceptions include schools, correctional facilities, nuclear power plants and businesses with a federal permit to use, store or transport combustible or explosive materials. Disney, central Florida's largest employer, has such a permit for its fireworks shows.
 

NY: Swapping Guns for Cash, at Church

There was a time, in the 1970s and ’80s that handguns were so coveted on the streets of Kings County, that the borough gave rise to a law enforcement legend known as the Brooklyn Bounce. If you were to throw a gun from a window in Bay Ridge or Bushwick, so the legend went, it would be eagerly grabbed before it had a chance to bounce more than once. Over the last decade or so, violent crime has dropped in Brooklyn, as it has in the rest of New York City, but plenty of guns are still in circulation. So for several hours starting on Saturday morning, six churches in central Brooklyn tried to help remedy that by inviting people to anonymously drop off firearms in exchange for cash cards worth hundreds of dollars.
 

FL: Retired law enforcement officers qualifying for national gun permits

For some retired law enforcement officers, the sense of duty hasn't faded. On Saturday morning, 40 retired officers — many of them New York Police Department retirees — completed a shooting course at the Markham Park gun range to qualify for a relatively new kind of concealed weapons permit that is honored nationwide. (A Florida concealed weapons permit is good only in Florida.) The aim of the national program is to get the retirees to demonstrate that they can still handle a gun so that they may legally carry one almost anywhere and be ready to act if they happen upon a violent crime.

Their relationship started on the Internet — like-minded people bemoaning what they considered restrictive Georgia gun laws. Attorney Ed Stone, a former police officer in Union City and Peachtree City, and five others commiserated in the chat room of a now-defunct Web site, packing.com. They'd exchanged numerous e-mails about what they called illegal limits on gun ownership and "everybody trying to make up their own law," Stone said. In the back room of a Shoney's restaurant in Douglasville two years ago they organized. GeorgiaCarry.org was born.

"Fentiman says it all began on June 28th when he was driving after dinner with his fiancée Maria. He says, “He ran back to the car, reached through the window and started hitting them.”

"He says he saw Douglas Need attacking two women on east Philadelphia Street in York. Fentiman, a former soldier, followed to see if he could help."

“...He didn't stop. He got to me. He grabbed my shirt, ripped the top button, grabbed my arm, and that's when I shot him point blank, the second time, in the thigh… One of the ladies, as I was on the way to the police car, handcuffed, thanked me for saving her life.”

Better read it here, because you aren't likely to hear about it via the mainstream press.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office and Midwest City Police are investigating a fatal shooting Thursday afternoon in the 17-hundred block of Hughson Avenue. Deputies at the scene found 44-year-old Mikah Ryan Smith sitting behind the wheel of a car, bleeding from a shotgun blast to the neck. He was taken to Midwest City Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The Sheriff's office says Smith had apparently been shot by a property owner who claimed he found the victim trying to break into a storage shed. The Sheriff's office says the property owner tried to stop the alleged burglar, but opened fire with the 12-gauge when the alleged burglar tried to run him over with the car.

This is my weekly article on the fallout from the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Heller v. District of Columbia. First, given that DC is ground central in the fallout from Heller, we should start there. Earlier this week, the DC City Council did adopt unanimously an emergency 90 day ordinance to create a process for DC residents to acquire handguns and to register handguns that they had and which they wished to legally possess within DC. This would include those DC residents who maintain residences in other areas primarily Members of Congress, judges, high executive officials, Congressional staffers, etc. It may have the “safe transport” changes that I stated were constitutionally necessary.

The Bureau also is pleased that the court appropriately made clear that nothing in [the] ruling casts doubt on the constitutionality of “longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.”

In addition, the court appropriately recognized that the “carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons,” such as machineguns, is not protected by the amendment. The bureau is studying the decision, but expects that it will not affect its continued enforcement of all existing federal firearms laws.

Twice convicted of felonies, James Francis Barton Jr. faces charges of violating a federal law barring felons from owning guns after police found seven pistols, three shotguns, and five rifles at his home south of Pittsburgh. As a defense, Barton and several other defendants in federal gun cases argue that last month's Supreme Court ruling allows them to keep loaded handguns at home for self-defense. "Felons, such as Barton, have the need and the right to protect themselves and their families by keeping firearms in their home," says David Chontos, Barton's court-appointed lawyer.

As I reflect upon the recent murder “by gun” of Andrew Colwell, I cannot help but wonder how a 19-year-old high school dropout obtained a gun. This question prompted me to do a little bit of Internet research. Gun violence is an epidemic and a national disgrace. The facts speak for themselves. “Every year in the United States guns kill nearly 30,000 people. We should not have to live in constant fear of our kids dying and being seriously injured in mass shootings like Virginia Tech, the Amish school near Nickel Mines, Pa., or Columbine.

I would like to share my perspective of the current state of the judiciary. I have listened as a debate is occurring over the proper powers of the courts and the tendency of some Americans to cede to the advocates of unrestrained judicial power victories to which they are not entitled.

Police believe Todd Dolin walked into the Dallas [W.Va.] Post Office Friday afternoon and killed Postmaster Lua Wolverton with two blasts from a shotgun.
Now they are hoping to find out why.
Dolin, 39, of Marshall County was arrested by police in Zanesville, Ohio, several hours after the 2:30 p.m. shooting. Officers described the event as a "non-confrontational arrest" following a traffic stop. Dolin was named a suspect in the shooting by West Virginia State Police Sgt. J.A. Laing.
Laing said Dolin will be charged in Ohio as a fugitive from justice wanted for first-degree murder in Marshall County.

COMMENT: But such shootings can't happen in post offices; it's against federal law!



 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all — security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again. — EDWARD GIBBON [On ancient Athens]
