Brazil, a country IANSA thinks should have responsibility as "Only Ones"

Yet they can't even figure out that throwing a 15 yr old girl in w/ male prisoners is a bad idea.

(CNN) -- The Brazilian government is investigating the case of a 15-year-old girl who allegedly was raped and tortured after being put in a prison cell with 20 male inmates, officials said.

The girl -- who said she was forced to have sex for food and suffered burns and other abuse -- has denounced police in the small town of Abaetetuba for keeping her in the cell.

She is now in a witness protection program...

The victim -- who has been identified only by her initials, L.A.B. -- was jailed for attempted theft, and was sent to a police station in Abaetetuba, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) from the provincial capital of Belem, according to the O Liberal newspaper.

She remained in custody for about three weeks.

After receiving an anonymous phone call, two social workers tried to visit the girl in jail, but police barred them from doing so, the newspaper reported.

The girl's father, who is also in a witness protection program, told reporters police asked him to forge the girl's birth certificate, but he refused. He said police threatened him and even questioned his paternity rights.

Catch that? Three weeks this girl was held. Not a few minutes, not a few hours, but weeks. And the authorities , including several female officials involved in the case, have threatened the family since they talked. Yet Ms. Rebecca Peters thinks that this type of government is should be the "only ones" w/ the ability to project force of any kind.

And this place is CandyLand compared to Congo.

"United Nations officials said the so-called Rastas were once part of the Hutu militias who fled Rwanda after committing genocide there in 1994, but now it seems they have split off on their own and specialize in freelance cruelty."

Remember them? The ones the UN let massacre Tutsi's w/ government support after forcibly disarming them?

Obama says DC gun ban constitutional.

Not that I'm surprised really:

Chicago Tribune:

But the campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said that he "...believes that we can recognize and respect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and the right of local communities to enact common sense laws to combat violence and save lives. Obama believes the D.C. handgun law is constitutional."

While the Chicago PD, that bastion of self-control and ability to control crime, also continues to advocate bans as part of "Crime control". Maybe they should take the guns away from the CPD.

They did mention National Ammo Day albeit a few days late. At least it's something.

Paul craps himself w/ the usual Push'er diaper filler.

The Most Significant Second Amendment Case In History
Paul claims that we should read all 27 words of the 2A. This coming from the organization that has a habit of forgetting the word "People".

Sorry Paul. You fail.


The ignorance of the PuSH'ers on Huffpo is astounding. Everything from there were no private militias, DC has lower crime than average, the NRA is behind the lawsuit, "assault weapons", getting rid of all regulation, etc.

This, folks, clearly shows why the BC is losing. The few followers they have are ignorant of even the basics.

And so it begins..

SCOTUS takes the case

And now we get to hear months of teeth gnashing by the VPC and BC about how the 2A doesn't mean what it says and "activist judges".

Update: And money. Can't forget about the calls for more money.

This fight is so critical that we need to raise $50,000 by November 30. And since your gift will be going to our Brady Gun Law Defense Fund, it will be fully tax deductible!

We need your help today to build a strong Brady Gun Law Defense Fund to protect America’s gun laws. Please give today.

Earlier this year, a U.S. Court of Appeals struck down a gun law as violating the Second Amendment for the first time in American history. We believe this decision was judicial activism at its worst and was clearly wrong.

This legal case at its very core is the most important battle we have ever waged. The U.S. Supreme Court has the chance to reverse a terribly erroneous decision and make it clear that the American people can adopt restrictions on firearms in their communities.

and from CNN , pretty much the same thing.

Dave Hardy's take.

Brady Bunch on the hunt for Rep. Jeffries

For not wanting to follow the Brady line in restricting handgun purchases. Of course it's all teh Ebil NRA's fault. As an aside, notice that by signing up for their E-mail alerts, I'm considered a "member" of the Brady Campaign.

Dear Illinois Brady Campaign Member,

Requiring background checks on all handgun purchasers is just common sense. So why did State Representative Elga Jeffries vote to block background check legislation (HB 758) earlier this year?

Because the gun lobby told her to.

Her “NO” vote on HB 758 helped kill legislation that her constituents in Chicago and Illinois citizens overwhelmingly support. Rep. Jeffries thinks pleasing the NRA is more important than protecting public safety. Rep. Jeffries had a chance to do the right thing but she blew it.

And why does Paul have a hard-on against her? Because she was a co-sponsor of the legislation and voted against it after an outpouring of opposition from her constituency. But the Brady's would rather blame wheel-barrows of money instead of accepting the fact that the populace doesn't support them.

"Guns make them more violent"

The refrain heard from the PuSH'ers as if firearms contain the implanted microchips that emit mind control powers. Of course as I've pointed out earlier, it's those very hoplophobes that advocate implanting chips into children "for their own safety".

None of it, however, explains the recent spate of assaults and murders in Chicago using fire. No guns were involved. Burning someone is a lot more hostile than shooting someone.

So hoplophobes, should we register and restrict matches?

Bloomberg being sued..

Alphecca reports that suit against Hizzoner Bloomie has got the go ahead from a SC judge. This goes in hand w/ the courts in Georgia allowing the suits to continue.

Will anything happen w/ it? Probably not but it's a good spit in the face to those who believe they are above the law.

"Authorized Journalist" Aiding and Abetting..

Kind of like the media here slanders and misinforms the public on firearms.

News photographer in Iraq accused of insurgent ties

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The U.S. military says it has "convincing and irrefutable" evidence that an award-winning Associated Press photographer is connected to the insurgency in Iraq.

The photographer, Bilal Hussein Zaidon, faces charges in the Iraqi Central Court based on the evidence, Pentagon officials said Monday.

Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell and other U.S. military officials would not say directly what charges he faced. They referred reporters to the Iraqi court system.

But now they care about people's rights being abused:

AP chief executive officer and president Tom Curley said the agency has "grave concerns" that Hussein's rights are being "ignored and even abused" and called on the United States to release the photographer.

"The steps the U.S. military is now taking continue to deny Bilal his right to due process and, in turn, may deny him a chance at a fair trial," Curley said. "The treatment of Bilal represents a miscarriage of the very justice and rule of law that the United States is claiming to help Iraq achieve."

Kind of like when CBS or CNN invent stories about firearms and blame NRA members for aiding criminals. But when it's one of their own accused of helping kill US soldiers, it's a different tune.

Interceptor Vs Dragonskin

The controversy continues. While Interceptor isn't perfect, Pinnacle's claims that Dragonskin was NIJ certified (even before it was) kept the arguement alive that the Army was just being putzes. While I can recognize that (ie the choice of ACU's for the new camouflage in comparison to something that works), Dragonskin seemed just to hyped up for me to believe the claims.


WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP) announced today that it has determined that the Pinnacle Armor, Inc. bulletproof vest model SOV 2000.1/MIL3AF01, is not in compliance with the requirements of OJP's National Institute of Justice (NIJ) voluntary compliance testing program for bullet-resistant body armor. Effective immediately, this body armor model will be removed from the NIJ list of bullet-resistant body armor models that satisfy its requirements. Pinnacle Armor, Inc. is the maker of "dragon skin" body armor.

NIJ, OJP's research, development, and evaluation component, has reviewed evidence provided by the body armor manufacturer and has determined that the evidence is insufficient to demonstrate that the body armor model will maintain its ballistic performance over its six-year declared warranty period.

I'ld like to see the Aug 20th testing but there don't seem to be any links to it on the sites.

I'm sure he got it at a gun show..

At least that's what the PuSH'ers will imply:

Man Goes On Robbery Spree Using Grenade, Police Say

A grenade-wielding thief who robbed one hotel and threatened a college student Sunday afternoon was arrested during a robbery attempt at a second hotel, police said.The arrest of the 49-year-old man capped off a busy day for dozens of Milwaukee police officers who spent four hours trying to find the man who was using a real grenade as a weapon.

It's a good thing WI has no CCW, otherwise he might have tried hiding it in his pocket.

Of course though, it wasn't live:

Once arrested, police said they discovered the grenade the man was using wasn't live.

Just wait. There will be calls for bans/restrictions on "Military Paraphernalia".

Implanted chips in Assault Weapons result in more hate crimes..

The AWB must be renewed.

Tongue in cheek but I'll bet someone (like the VPC or Gonzo) make the connection and blame guns.

Hate crimes rose 8 percent in 2006

WASHINGTON - Hate crime incidents in the United States rose last year by nearly 8 percent, the FBI reported Monday, as racial prejudice continued to account for more than half the reported instances. Police across the nation reported 7,722 criminal incidents in 2006 targeting victims or property as a result of bias against a particular race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnic or national origin or physical or mental disability. That was up 7.8 percent from the 7,163 incidents reported in 2005.

CNN on the Hoboken SWAT Chief

He denies even knowing about the photos. One of his Lieutenants has also been photographed wearing Confederate and White Supremacists regalia.

Quite the quality department they're running there.

Stopping at Hooters for lunch? Fine.
Taking photos w/ hot Hooter girls? Fine.
Letting the girls play w/ your issued firearms? Stupid.

My AmmoDay Purchase so far..

A brick of Remington .22lr Viper HV w/ the folding knife.

I've had good luck w/ the Yellow Jacket so decided to try this stuff out. The knife is a POS. The belt clip snapped off in the package.

If I can make it to Rural King before it closes, I'm planning on picking up some more 12ga shells.
