D.C. circling wagons on guns; Spokane’s Robin Ball efforts lauded

 

Roll Call reported yesterday afternoon that officials in the District of Columbia, having secured a stay in the federal court ruling that declared the city’ carry law unconstitutional, are determined to “do everything in their power to limit the carrying of handguns in the nation’s capital.”

Judge issues stay on D.C. gun carry ruling



Judge issues 90-day stay in D.C. gun rights ruling

 

The same federal judge who handed down an opinion that the District of Columbia’s ban on carrying firearms outside the home is unconstitutional today issued a 90-day stay on his opinion, allowing the city time to either file an appeal or to craft an ordinance that enables people to carry in the nation’s capital, the Washington Times is reporting.

Media bias on gun issue? Say it ain't so!



Does press ignores police on guns unless they support restrictions?

 

Breaking news late yesterday in Seattle and an editorial Sunday in Massachusetts just might reinforce the notion among gun rights activists that press bias on Second Amendment issues is thriving from one coast to the other.

DC anti-gunners want to 'stay' landmark CCW ruling



Anti-gun D.C. officials will move fast to stay landmark CCW ruling

 

Following the unusual Saturday release of the landmark right-to-carry ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr., that the Washington Times said yesterday essentially guts the District of Columbia’s gun laws banning carry of firearms outside the home, city officials are already working to put it on hold, the Washington Post reported today.

Part 1 — COMMENTARY & MISCELLANEOUS
I Cannot Imagine…
I cannot image that any of you are not registered to vote and/or do not vote in every election or referendum.  Many of us took an oath to protect and preserve the Constitution when serving in various positions or services; it is no less vital for us to maintain the commitment of that oath even if no longer serving.   It is equally important for those who have not served but are nevertheless concerned with maintaining a free nation to align with that oath and register to, and then, vote your informed mind in every election or referendum.

Danger, Will Robinson!!!
This newsletter is focused on firearms legislation and closely related items of interest in Connecticut and at the federal level; however, that does not mean totally ignoring happenings in other states.  Much danger to the Second Amendment appears all around our country and those actions and trends all add to the comucrat incremental degradation of our freedoms and liberties.  California and Massachusetts are prime examples, as proof I offer the following link.
>>>>>>
Politics
Enduring the continuing travesties inflicted on me by the CGA, President, and the comucrat controlled Senate by incrementally circumventing the Constitution and abolishing our freedoms and liberties, I have decided that I must expand my participation in the politic.   
 
In a first for my newsletters and me, I have endorsed Lori Hopkins Cavanagh to replace Joe Courtney and have volunteered to assist her in matters related to the Second Amendment.  Information is available at her website at http://www.loriforcongress2014.com/ and Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/loriforcongress2014
 
I am currently looking into the candidates for the CGA Senate 20th District.  Fortunately, Andrea Stillman will not seek re-election and three people are seeking her position.  One of them, Representative Betsy Ritter, is obviously a hard-line comucrat who has made it plain in word and deed that she favors the elimination of the Article First, Sections Seven and Fifteen of the Connecticut Constitution. 
 
The other two candidates are Bill Satti, a democrat who may not be a comucrat, and Paul Formica who is a Republican.  I have met with Mr. Satti and he seems to be a reasonable person but in typical democrat fashion, is reluctant to take a firm position on issues.  I have listened to interviews of Mr. Formica who seems to lean in the direction of being a constitutionalist.  I do, however, need to learn more about both of these men. 
 
None of the CGA candidate websites is complete and they are not yet therefore, by any means, informative.

Autocrat Reid Strikes Again
S. 2363: Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014, as written, contained very little that affected the Second Amendment, the only related aspect was a modification of the Toxic Substances Control Act ( 15 U.S.C. 2602(2)(B) ) exempting ammunition containing lead and restoring the use of federal lands for target practice as well promoting the construction of new shooting ranges. 
 
A confluence of “real life” events and the low impact aspects of the bill precluded covering S. 2363: Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014 that transitioned through the Senate very quickly and that was unfortunate.  I believe that the NSSF statement below is a politically correct means of stating that the anti-Second Amendment additions to the bill lead to its downfall. 
 
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, today issued this statement regarding the Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act, S. 2363, that earlier today, failed to garner the 60 votes needed to move towards final passage:
 
NSSF understands why pro-sportsmen members from both sides of the aisle wanted an opportunity to vote on amendments unique to their respective states. That said, it is disheartening to see America 's longstanding tradition of bipartisanship on sportsmen's issues sacrificed to the continued gridlock preventing meaningful bipartisan legislation. NSSF looks forward to working with the vast majority of Senators who continue to have an interest in passing this historic legislation on behalf of current and future generations of hunters.
 
The NRA response was a little less diplomatic. 
 
NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox issued the following statement this week:
 
"The National Rifle Association is disappointed that the bipartisan Sportsmen’s bill has fallen victim to Sen. Harry Reid's political agenda.  By refusing to allow a reasonable amendment process, Sen. Reid effectively killed this legislation – a bill with substantive measures that would have enriched America ’s hunting and sporting heritage.
 
"On behalf of our 5 million members, we would like to thank Sens. Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, and John Cornyn for their leadership and efforts to allow the Senate to consider important amendments that would have strengthened the legislation, such as Sen. Roger Wicker’s amendment that would have opened up millions of acres of public lands administered by the Army Corps of Engineers to lawful firearms use.  The NRA remains committed to advancing the interests of America 's law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen." 
 
This bill is probably dead due to the failed vote for cloture 140710.  Cloture is required to move past filibuster or the threat of filibuster and takes a 3/5ths vote. In practice, most bills must pass cloture to move forward in the Senate. 
 
The bill was introduced by a comucrat and the whole point of the "Sportsmen's Bill" was to let comucrats pad their voting records with a "pro-gun" vote, even though, as written, the bill did virtually nothing for gun owners.  Despot Reid wanted to let his fellow anti-gun comucrats check the "pro-Second Amendment" box on their résumés; he hijacked this bill for them by trying to force it to a vote without any input from pro-gun Senators meaning that there were no meaningful amendments at all. 
 
As further evidence, I present the following.
Saying gun control measures snubbed, Blumenthal, Murphy reject ‘sportsman bill’
ctmirror.org/ (140710)
“I voted against advancing this bill because I fundamentally believe that before the Senate debates a proposal expanding the use of guns on federal lands, we should first address the plague of gun violence in our communities,” Murphy said

Oppose Wide-Ranging Gun Control Bill--H.R. 4783
I noted this bill (H.R. 4783: Promoting Healthy Minds for Safer Communities Act of 2014) a few weeks ago without realizing just how onerous it is.  This link takes you to a NRA-ILA article that explains what the bill’s California comucrat sponsor really wants.  http://www.nraila.org/legislation/federal-legislation/2014/6/ask-your-us-rep-to-oppose-wide-ranging-gun-control-bill-hr-4783.aspx

Another Voice Stilled…
Patch.com has become totally useless as a vehicle for expressing conservative views; at least in eastern Connecticut.  It appears to have taken over by comucrats residing in the liberal havens of the western part of the state.  The format has changed and except for news that appears in yellow rags like The Day, there is no local news and the reader blogs have been suppressed.

'Easier to harass Bubba' than fight crime



 

 

Easier to harass Bubba at gun show than crack down on criminals

 

… Examiner traded e-mail with Cottrol this morning. He recalled speaking with the Times reporter and noted, "The point I was making was that the administration and gun control advocates generally are more interested in getting new gun laws and going after law abiding gun owners than going after criminals who misuse guns."

Media bias ignoring law enforcement opposition to gun control initiative?



Is media deliberately ignoring law enforcement opposition to I-594?

 

Are Washington State news agencies deliberately ignoring rank-and-file law enforcement opposition to Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure already endorsed by the Seattle Times, and financed largely by wealthy Seattle-area elites, while reporting – as did the Seattle P-I.com – who supports the measure?

Increasing support for armed citizens



Growing evidence: Public backs gun rights, more armed citizens

 

There is growing anecdotal evidence that the public is not as fearful of firearms as gun prohibitionists contend, as underscored by the national popularity of a “guns welcome” restaurant in Tennessee, an open carry eatery in Colorado, and yesterday’s reports of spiking concealed carry licensing in South Carolina and Kansas.
