The Reality of Gun 'Turn-Ins'.

At Snuffy Pfleger's church.

Thanks to Yas at Illinois Carry with more pictures and info.

UPDATE: The 'buyback' wasn't as successful as past years. Seems there's only so many little old ladies w/ rusty guns in their basements.

And in Daley's "Gun Free Paradise" of Chicago

The two indicted for the shooting near Snuffy's church a few weeks ago? A 17yr old and a 16 yr old.

I'm going to take a stab at it and say that the gun was unregistered, they didn't have FOID's (which means no gun show or legal private sale purchase), have some priors, and that gangs/drugs were involved.

The Grassroots that isn't..

We have the Dr. that isn't.

The daughter of an Obama delegate asking fed questions.

Bused in supporters to townhall meetings.

Obama supporters carrying Obama/Hitler signs.

And a pretend White Supremacist (who isn't) sending fake death threats.

This must be where the SPLC has seen its increase in 'right-wing militia's'.

Silence = Support?

That's Paul Helmke's latest claim in that he wants people to believe the NRA is promoting 'blood in the streets' (yes, that tired old meme again) by not issuing press releases on people carrying to Town Hall meetings.

Of course by this logic, the Brady Campaign then approved of the gun confiscations in New Orleans after Katrina.

One would almost think that Helmke WANTS something to happen. Then the Brady Campaign can send out another E-mail alert asking for contributions amounts in the number of people dead. Just like they did after VT.

Arming Criminals

No, not the NRA as is regularly claimed by gun control advocates, but by the authorities themselves. 'Allegedly', the Mayor of Harvey, Illinois instructed a police detective to return a gun to a convicted drug dealer and gang member, a gun that was evidence in a criminal investigation, and have charges of threatening other police officers, dropped.

Charges weren't dropped but they didn't mean anything since the evidence, the gun, had 'disappeared'.

Gotta love Illinois politicians.

Guilt By Association

So the SPLC, joining the DHS, publishes another report about 'right-wing militia's' and all the nasty stuff they might do. Their statements paint quite a broad brush of correlations:
One federal agency estimates that 50 new militia training groups have sprung up in less than two years. Sales of guns and ammunition have skyrocketed amid fears of new gun control laws, much as they did in the 1990s.
They even include military and law enforcement who promise to do their job:
Oath Keepers, the military and police organization that was formed earlier this year and held its April muster on Lexington Green, may be a particularly worrisome example of the Patriot revival.
Gun Control is on the radar:
One Oath Keeper is longtime militia hero Richard Mack, ... won a U.S. Supreme Court decision that weakened the Brady Bill gun control law in the 1990s.

At the same time, players like the National Rifle Association, which in the 1990s publicly attacked federal law enforcement agents as "jackbooted thugs," are back at it. Two months before the election last fall, firearms manufacturers joined forces to promote NRA membership in a national campaign ominously dubbed "Prepare for the Storm in 2008."
Tea Parties, the NRA, anti-illegal immigration, gun shows, Constitutionalism, etc. are being lumped together w/ KKK, neo-Nazi's, white supremacists and violent reactionaries in an attempt to demonize them all and reduce their influence. And all of it is intersparsed w/ correlations to racism at its core.

The partisanship displayed is so overt that even CNN questioned the report when they did a piece on it. it is clearly shown here:
At the Jacksonville, Fla., July tea party, some protesters carried signs that compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler.
"Bushitler" was the default insult for the previous 8 years. Why the uproar now? Oh, right.

This is the kind of rhetoric that we will continue to see. Count on it.

Missing Something?

The original caption stating that this was US troops and Iraqi police during real operations.

Can anyone tell what's wrong w/ this picture?

Relatively quiet on the Eastern Front

Since I'm off training Anti-Jihadist militia in Northern Elbonia, posting has been and will most likely be sparse for the next few weeks.
