Australians give up 51,000 illegal firearms as 3-month amnesty ends

See how easy how the medicine goes down? You and I know the drill, I don’t have to sell you. But it is good to know how the few Democracies around the world are handling this gun thing. Would Trump please tell the Aussies not to count on us next time the Japanese come knocking on their door step?

Australians turned in 51,000 illegal firearms, ranging from 19th-century weapons to a rocket launcher, during a three-month amnesty that ended on Friday, Reuters reported. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the move had helped avert Las Vegas-style mass shootings. The cache represents about a fifth of illegal firearms and will be destroyed. It was Australia’s second amnesty since its worst-ever massacre, when a lone gunman killed 35 people in the island state of Tasmania in 1996. Those who still own such guns face jail time, and the government is pushing for harsher penalties for gun traffickers. H/T:  RT

More guns = more gun homicides? Nope.

Put this down as the chart of the day. When the left spins their tale, give them a copy of this.

A return tweet:

Here in Brazil we have total and absolute prohibition of all kinds of guns. Last year we had 70.000 murders This year we expect around 80k

 

Obama finalizes Social Security gun ban ‘rule’

Obama is dropping a whole lot of goodies down our chimney before he exits. As if selling Israel down the tubes at the UN with the latest abstention vote wasn’t enough to rile us, let’s tool up the gun rights folks. Of course SS folks are in the news everyday, brandishing their weapons. I was chewing on raw hide all weekend wanting to post this but did not in respect for Christmas. Here tis:

On Monday the Obama administration finalized a Social Security gun ban that could prevent “tens of thousands” of law-abiding elderly citizens from purchasing guns for self-defense.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the ban would be sweeping; that it would cover those who are unable to manage their own affairs for a multitude of reasons–from “subnormal intelligence or mental illness” to “incompetency,” an unspecified “condition,” or “disease.”

Current law prohibits individuals from buying a gun if, because of a mental health issue, they are either a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their own affairs. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has indicated that it will begin the rulemaking process to ensure that appropriate information in its records is reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). The reporting that SSA, in consultation with the Department of Justice, is expected to require will cover appropriate records of the approximately 75,000 people each year who have a documented mental health issue, receive disability benefits, and are unable to manage those benefits because of their mental impairment, or who have been found by a state or federal court to be legally incompetent. The rulemaking will also provide a mechanism for people to seek relief from the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm for reasons related to mental health.

Missouri Overrides Govs Veto to Legalize Permitless Gun Carry

Think Ferguson. A good day to celebrate as there are now eleven states that allow citizens to protect themselves, their families and property. No questions asked.

The Missouri legislature overrode Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of permitless gun carry on Wednesday, making it the 11th state to adopt the policy.

Missouri legislators bypassed the governor’s wishes and instituted the new gun-friendly law by a vote of 112-41 in the House of Representatives and 24-6 in the Senate. Under the law, anyone over 21 who can legally own a firearm may now legally carry a firearm. The move continues a nationwide trend towards what activists call “constitutional carry.”

From the nation’s founding through 2002 Vermont was the only state that didn’t require a state-issued permit to carry a firearm. Alaska became the second state to adopt the policy in 2003. Over the last six years another nine states have followed suit, making it the hottest trend in state-level gun policy. H/T:Free Beacon

Medical marijuana users now banned from owning or buying guns court rules

They are coming full bore at us in attempting to limit our Second Amendment rights. The wacko 9th Circuit has a new approach. I would ask them to explain the difference between alcohol and marijuana in making this determination. I wonder who is going to round up those who already have a gun?

If you have a medical marijuana card, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that you can’t buy a gun.

Earlier this week the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that medical marijuana card holders do not have a 2nd amendment right to buy or own a firearm. The ruling applies to the nine Western states that fall under the court’s jurisdiction, including California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, and Alaska.

On Wednesday, in a 3-0 decision, the 9th Circuit agreed that Congress had reasonably concluded that marijuana and other drug use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.” The court’s ruling applied to nine Western states within the appeals court’s jurisdiction, including six that have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational purposes: California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, and Alaska.

Rainey plans to appeal the decision saying,  “We live in a world where having a medical marijuana card is enough to say you don’t get a gun, but if you’re on the no-fly list your constitutional right is still protected.” … “We are going to litigate this, exhaust whatever remedies we have,” Rainey said. “When this (ATF) letter was issued, it was issued as part of a deliberate attempt by the (U.S. Department of Justice) to quell a political movement.” More at Off Grid Survival

Blacks kill Whites a lot, and hurt and kill cops a lot

Ok. I have had it. I want my T.V. back. Stop it. Stop agitating for a race war. Stop wanting our guns. Blacks kill Whites a lot Yes. They Do. American Thinker gives us a breakdown in the last couple of weeks of what they have done to cops. Then I give you the crime of the Century. Blacks kill and torture a wonderful white couple. Here we go:

The reason for the demonstration was simple and beyond pushback:

White cops shoot black people all over the country, all the time, for no reason whatsoever.

Everybody knows that. So sad.

Some took it to the next level: The head of a black group called Dallas Action said the killings were a wake up call to let people know how cops are picking on black people.

All the time.

For no reason whatsoever.  The local Fox reporter in Dallas took the comments in stride, quickly changing the topic to all the pretty lights on nearby police cars.

Not one reporter at any point even hinted at how black violence is wildly out of proportion.

Not one reporter talked to any cop willing to tell the truth about how police are relentless victims of black hostility and violence and murder — all over the country.

And how black on cop violence and defiance are now the default response.

And you want to know the case of the century? 4 Blacks Torture, Rape, Mutilate and Kill White Couple. Go to link for original post.

Why wasn’t this Knoxville story, “4 blacks kill white couple” on the TV  network news for months? How does the media decide which murders to  sensationalize? 

“Christian and Newsom were leaving an apartment together to go to a friend’s  party when they were abducted from the apartment complex parking lot.

According to the testimony of the Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr.  Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan at the subsequent trial of Eric Boyd, Newsom was  repeatedly sodomized with an object and then blindfolded, gagged, arms and feet  bound and his head covered. Barefoot, he was dragged outside the house to a set  of nearby railroad tracks. He was sexually mutilated, shot in the back of his  head, neck and back and his body was then set on fire.
