So much research that I have $25 for the first person who cites a specific fact with supporting evidence that is incorrect.GoodFact:
GAP in law allows people on terrorist watch list to obtain gunsEvidence presented:
Major Nidal Hasan allegedly shot 43 people at Fort Hood — 13 were killed and 30 were wounded. Hasan was able to buy a handgun even though he was under investigation by the FBI for links to terrorism. FBI agents investigating Hasan were never informed that he was trying to purchase a weapon.
REALFACT: Hassan was NOT on the watch list:
After reviewing the emails and concluding that Major Hasan was not engaged in terrorist activities, the JTTF investigator and supervisor did not share the information regarding Major Hasan, and he was not placed on a terrorist watch list.
So will you man up and send the $25 or will it all be 'moderated' and ignored?
Well apparently they don't like that that little fact, in comparison to all the 'facts' that they make up. This is funny:
6.To the people who categorized us as “gun grabbers” I suspect that you did not see the following on the home page of our website:
Sane gun laws will simultaneously protect the Second Amendment right of the legal gun owner and the non-gun owner’s rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as written in the Declaration of Independence.
Well this is also on their site:
Any sane gun law will lead to the government being able to take your guns away.But they're not 'gun grabbers'. No, not at all. What they also are is nuts.
UPDATE: Their defense for opposing Due Process? Bush did it. I kid you not.
National Gun Victims Action Council - "A Force for Sane Gun Laws" also commented on their link.National Gun Victims Action Council - "A Force for Sane Gun Laws" wrote: "Then I must asune that klike me youn were and still are oppossed to the imprionment of people at guantanomo bat and wna tto see that facikligty closed."
Let's see what else happened in the VA Senate Committees yesterday:
The Senate Courts of Justice Committee on Wednesday approved a measure that would eliminate Virginia's one-gun-a-month restriction on handgun purchases, setting up what could be the most significant change to Virginia's gun laws in years...And the CSGV/Brady fanatics are foaming at the mouth over it. Whether they didn't have enough people to cover all the bills or just don't have the influence to do anything more than temporarily stop a bill that received a 'tepid reception' doesn't matter, it's the best they can do anymore.
The committee also approved, along party lines, a bill that would immunize from civil liability a person who uses deadly force against an intruder in his home. Senate Bill 4, sponsored by Sen. Richard H. Stuart, R-Westmoreland, passed 8-7.
Maybe someone will light a candle for them.

HB1294: 'Assault Weapon Ban'. A mish-mash of previous ban attempts. Poorly written including 'barrel shrouds' and .17HMR tube feds as dangerous machine guns. 90 days to register your guns including all your magazines over 10 rnds or you're a felon.
HB1599: Increases penalties for crimes committed w/ 'Assault Weapons'. Makes up the term 'High Capacity Ammunition' defined as any ammunition over .50 cal. It doesn't include an exclusion for shotgun ammo.
HB1855: Penalizes victims of crime for not reporting stolen firearms.
Just your average, everyday 'common-sense' anti-gun legislation. Call your reps to make sure this crap doesn't get any further than it already has.
Podalak said. He noted that 75,000 people die annually by gunshot, a third of them accidentally.Where did he pull that number out of since it's %150 higher than reality? Firearm deaths total are about 30K each year w/ only a small fraction due to accidents.
But I'm sure Oak Park will continue to try to do whatever they can to restrict firearms no matter the dishonesty of those who endorse it.
He was a 'good boy'. But then there's this:
he was shot in the face by Coulson with a shotgun after the two had been drinking and arguing all night.So providing alcohol to his underage girlfriend. Just the kind of 'victims' the Anti's need.
Then there's this one:
From the article:
Anaya, who previously was convicted of numerous crimes, including assault, false imprisonment and armed robbery, is described as having graying hair and brown eyes and is around 5-foot-6.A violent criminal committing violence. And which laws would have stopped him?
Because she was neither a sure vote (went from F to C rated by NRA) nor a 'victim'. It was only after she was shot that they had hopes of using her status as a 'victim of gun violence' to push their political agenda. Had a gun not been involved, there would have been no candle lit in her honor.
They need victims, specifically victims in some way, any way, associated w/ guns in order to maintain their worldview. For everyone shot, no matter the circumstance, they can hope for another few supporters that will regurgitate their talking points in front of a camera or audience.
It's the only way they can hope to keep the lights on.
But remember, they have 14 million members and outnumber the NRA 'extremist faction' 50:1.
Reality hurts, doesn't it?
Members of the Illinois State Rifle Association arrived in gold hats, t-shirts and other identifying clothing and were directed by village staff to sit in the back.Sound familiar?
They had a few token pro-rights folks speak but I'm sure the wormtongues from the LCAV were standing behind the council members whispering in their ears the whole time. They'll push ahead w/ whatever they think they can get away w/ and the Anti's will support them the whole way.
It has nothing to do w/ crime control, it's population control.
