I just want to note that the "NRA Blacklist" and "Stop the NRA" websites linked in the article, once run by the Brady Campaign, are both defunct.
Have a nice day.
Instead of resulting in a cancellation, the attentions brought in so much interest they added another gun to raffle off.
That's what's called 'grassroots'.
...when it comes right down to it, it doesn't really matter what the statistics say, you are convinced, to the level of religious faith, that guns are BAD, BAD, BAD and so you will dismiss and ignore any information that would tend to shake that faith.That's pretty normal from gun control advocates. They can't fathom anything outside of their belief system (see Joan Peterson) so they respond w/ ad hominems, emotional appeals, insults and character attacks.
---SailorCurt to anti-gun pundit Jack Dunning.
It shows who the real "bitter clingers" are.
"It is obvious you are clearly uneducated"A character attack. What a good way to start a discussion.
and haven't a clue how these guns end up in the wrong hands.Really? Primarily through the hands of criminals. (note that word)
"If incarcerating criminals goes so far then let me ask you this oh wise one. Why are we letting them out of prison to once again commit more crimes and harm innocent children and adults?"Because the so-called 'justice system' is more concerned w/ plea bargains and 3 drink lunches than actually helping society by putting away violent criminals. You don't seem to mind violent criminals as long as they don't have a gun. Why do you think it's better for the other 80 million firearm owners to be left defenseless against these violent criminals you admit are being let out?
"Any ex con can get a gun out in the street off of Craigslist on go to another state and get one, hell even idiots over the net will sell them to."Craigslist has a "No Gun" policy. And to purchase a firearm over the net still requires it to go through an FFL. 'Going to another state' is a federal felony. All policies that are already illegal or not allowed. So who 'hasn't got a clue'? If you're seeing these things, are you reporting them? Or do you not trust the 'Justice System' enough to bother?
"Are they going thru a background check when they purchase them this way? No their not cause the person selling them to the ex con doesn't give a shit if they shoot up your family they just want the money."So making another law that criminals 'don't give a sh!t' about will stop crime? You make my point for me. How does disarming ME stop the criminals who will be violent no matter what?
"Live a little and see how the real world operates you must be in lala land if you think this shit don't happen! "I do live in the real world and am quite familiar w/ what happens. You, however, Mr. Bravely Anonymous, don't seem to have any clue as to what the laws are. And I know it happens. That's why I work to make sure people can defend themselves while individuals like yourself prefer to remain victims.
So to sum up. Mr./Ms. Bravely Anonymous thinks disarming me will stop violent criminals who, by his/her own admission "don't give a sh1t".
Yeah, that makes sense.

The other was by IL State Rep Ford. Quite a few of the IL anti-gun leadership were in attendance along w/ pro-rights members and leadership. This is the blurb from Fox news. Note the only name mentioned was the CPD Asst police chief opposing CCW.
Here's the interesting bit. When I first checked the article, there were three comments. One by Valinda Rowe of Illinois Carry. One by Mike Weisman of the ISRA and another. All three remarking on the lack of any details in the article. Now when I check, the comments are gone.
Did Fox delete them or is it my computer?
UPDATE: They seem to be showing up again.

And they display the usual forms of 'tolerance' shown by self proclaimed 'progressives':
All w/ multiple 'favorite' clicks. That last one followed immediately by this:
Rethugricans promoting 2nd amendment rights to assassinate those who disagree with them - what's so shocking about that?
Of course, republicans are pro-child murder so that's not surprising. Child murder is usually a very profitable business and offering a free gun is a good way to draw in the money matters more than morals crowd.
This is intended as a crude warning, ala Don Corleone. They're telling her not to run again.
They actually wanted the actual weapon but the "evidence" was held for the trial ....... Figured it would draw more ticket buyers ..... Oh well ...
Perhaps we can encourage the lucky winner to shoot themselves in the head as a great way to meet Jesus.
Republicans and an utter lack of class: the real constant in American politics.
The levels of mental derangement shown by fanatics never ceases to surprise me.
Has he even been inside a school before or actually talked to teachers? It certainly doesn't sound like it.
The idea of basing salary off of STUDENT's performance on standardized tests is stupid. What you get then is teachers teaching the test as too many students just don't care. Many schools have 'integrated' classrooms w/ the idea that the lower performing students will get help from the higher performing ones. What happens instead is that the teacher has to teach to the lowest common denominator or risk getting criticized for too many low grades and/or spending more time on BD/LD/ED issues rather than instructing.
You have good teachers and crappy teachers. Good students and crappy students. Good parents and crappy parents and good administrators and crappy administrators. The more of those good ones you have, the better the students will perform. It doesn't matter how much money you throw at them. Too many of the crappy ones and you'll get crappy performance, whether you pay the teacher $100k or not.
...The real scandal here is America’s refusal to curb the flow of gun traffic from the United States to murderous cartels in Mexico. That failure stems from National Rifle Association pressure on Congress to keep the ATF weak and from President Obama’s reluctance to confront that political obstacle...Again, nevermind the fact that "O"'s nominee for the job is an anti-gun hack If the 'Acting Directors' were so incompetent, they shouldn't have been their in the first place.
...But to set the demoralized bureau straight it needs a permanent director. It has been without one for five years, as the gun lobby’s bipartisan claque blocks any move that would allow the bureau to better do its job...
And 'High powered war rifles'? Really? Come on. They need to pull their heads out of the Lightbringers' rear long enough to see it isn't 1994 any more.

Um No. There's this little case called McDonald et al. v Chicago. Maybe they remembered that a few minutes later on their Twitter feed.
All those little cases don't mean much. It's the ones like Heller and McDonald that matter. Plus there have been a number of cases, real ones, not just Joe Schmuckatellie filing a suit that exlaims "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!!!!".
And this little line from the article they link to shows just how desperate they are to find any sort of positive spin in their collapsing world:
"Despite setbacks in court, gun owners are winning on the political front."There are no 'setbacks in court'. The important cases like Shepard and Ezell to name a few are moving forward exactly the way they were planned. The Brady Bunch knows this and are prepping their resumes.
Get that? There aren't enough people ineligible to own firearms in the FBI database to make them happy. Obviously they think MORE people should be classified criminals under categories such as 'Suspected Terrorist' or 'Insurrectionist' and not allowed to own firearms.
That's the ideal world in the mind of gun control fanatics like Ladd Everitt.
More at STL GRE.

By any means necessary.
In this instance, some 'Only Ones', trying to revive the 'blood in the streets' meme over the (recently
So this actually has two issues. One is the absolute apoplectic fits Anti's have regarding anything relating to firearms and the lengths they will go to to lie, smear, libel and demonize firearm owners.
The other is that the police, w/ all the training, responsibility and authority given to them, are human beings. They, like everyone else, screw up. But when they screw up, they violate the trust put in them and damage the very foundation of what they're supposed to be upholding.
And they should be held accountable.
