    Protecting Your Dog Do you include your dog in your home-defense plan? by Sheriff Jim Wilson January 08, 2013 From time to time we see reports of police shooting a dog in the course of responding to a call for assistance or while executing a warrant for search or arrest. Without a doubt, some of these incidents may be the result of poor training or the lack of proper planning on the part of law enforcement. However, that is of little comfort to the citizen when his family pet has been destroyed. With some thought, planning, and training, this kind...

    Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter ripped the National Rifle Association for using President Barack Obama’s two daughters in an ad, declaring it “beyond the bounds of human decency” at a congressional hearing Wednesday. “As a father, I find it reprehensible, disgusting and beyond the bounds of human decency that the NRA would place an ad on television attacking President Obama’s daughters,” Nutter said to applause from the dais at a meeting of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, adding: “The NRA has struck a new low and that should be removed immediately.” The NRA released an ad Tuesday night calling the...

    “Revenue” Redefined: Libs abuse another innocent word by Daniel Clark Sometimes it seems like it would be a good idea to publish a liberal-to-English dictionary. That way, normal people would be able to understand what liberals mean when they take already existing words, and apply meanings to them that are nowhere close to their true definitions. Listening to liberals speak can be like visiting Alice’s Wonderland. Taking things that belong to somebody else is what they call “fairness.” Parading through town while wearing leashes and chains and nothing else is an exhibition of “pride.” Violent criminals who are turned loose...

    ACLU ^ | 16 Jan 2013 | Catherine Crump
    Two key memos outlining the Justice Department’s views about when Americans can be surreptitiously tracked with GPS technology are being kept secret by the department despite a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the ACLU to force their release. The FBI’s general counsel discussed the existence of the two memos publicly last year, yet the Justice Department is refusing to release them without huge redactions. (You can see the heavily censored versions sent to the ACLU here and here, and our original FOIA request here.) The Justice Department’s unfortunate decision leaves Americans with no clear understanding of when we...

    The American ^ | January 16, 2013 | Lee Harris
    Perhaps the best that can be said about the New York gun law is that it is a modern updating of the old principle of apotropaic magic. The state of New York has just passed what has been called the toughest gun control law in the nation, the first such law to go on the books since the Newtown massacre shocked and horrified the nation. Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has championed the new law, has virtually dared both other states and the federal government to do something equally tough about gun violence. Tough here is the operative word, as you...

    Thieves ransacked a house that features on the gun map published by the Journal News, just days after another home on the list was also targeted. Burglars broke into the house in New City, New York, on Wednesday and pried open two safes, before leaving with another one. The criminals escaped with two handguns, two pistol permits, cash, savings bonds and jewelry. The firearms were in the stolen safe. Burglars also broke into a house in White Plains, New York, on Saturday and headed straight for the gun safe.

    President Obama is asking congress to enact tough new gun controls. They include a ban on assault weapons, universal background checks and tight ammo restrictions. Valley lawmakers aren't buying it. "I'm very concerned about these children being used as props and I think it needs to come to a stop," said local Congressman, Devin Nunes. Congressman Nunes says the gun proposal is mostly political smoke and mirrors. "It's meant to cause distraction to the American people to get them off the most important pressing issues which are the economic issues that face our country today," said Congressman Nunes.

    American Thinker ^ | January 17, 2013 | Gary Henderson
    The public discourse suddenly swirls angrily around this issue: How big a gun should people be allowed to own, with how many bullets? Despite all the furor, the question has a very simple answer. But it's the wrong question. Even those who routinely carry a concealed weapon, and certainly many who don't, wrestle with the question, "How much firepower does anyone need?" Perhaps those who don't own weapons think the answer should be very close to zero. Those who know that many times each year violent attacks are stopped when someone simply shows a weapon understand that self-defense tools are...

You've got a governor here who's facing reelection in 2014 and may well end up being the national frontrunner for his party's nomination in 2016 if Hillary doesn't run. He's feeling political pressure not just from above, in the form of a president who's vowed to drum up Do Something fever among Democrats nationally, but from below in the form of a rich, high-profile nanny-state mayor for whom this is a pet issue.

    Canadians produce more garbage than anyone else Conference Board calls Canada an 'environmental laggard' Canadians use far too much energy and water, and they produce more garbage per capita than any other country on earth, a report from an influential think-tank says. The Conference Board of Canada gave Canada a C grade on Thursday and ranked it in 15th place among 17 developed nations studied across a host of environmental-efficiency metrics. "Our large land mass, cold climate and resource-intensive economy make us less likely to rank highly on some indicators of environmental sustainability, but many of our poor results are...

    An American from Texas remains missing after an Algerian military raid on an Al Qaeda-linked group reportedly ended a hostage standoff at a remote gas plant in the Saharan Desert. Two Americans escaped unharmed Thursday from the hostage standoff, a senior U.S. defense officials told Fox News, and five other Americans who had been at the vast Ain Amenas complex were able to avoid being taken captive when the terrorists first attacked early Wednesday. The Associated Press reports at least six people, and perhaps many more, were killed -- Britons, Filipinos and Algerians -- in the Algerians special forces' rescue...

    A mysterious "snake goddess" painted on terracotta and discovered in Athens may actually be Demeter, the Greek goddess of the harvest. Once linked to the worship of the dead, the goddess is flanked by two snakes on a slab of terracotta about the size of a piece of notebook paper. She has her hands up above her head, which has given her the nickname "the touchdown goddess"... This unusual piece of art was found amid a jumble of gravel and other terracotta fragments in 1932 in what was once the Athenian agora, or public square. The catch, however, is that...

    PROVIDENCE — The Newtown massacre is giving fresh momentum to efforts to strengthen firearm laws in Rhode Island, with local leaders calling for a state ban on semi-automatic weapons and legislators vowing to look at gun access, mental health screening and other policies that might curb violence. The push has gun rights supporters on a quiet defensive, determined to protect their right to bear arms while acknowledging that the slaughter in next-door Connecticut has made an already delicate political debate especially sensitive. State Rep. Teresa Tanzi is one of those at the center of the debate. The South Kingstown Democrat...

Robert Crook, of Madison, executive director of the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen, attended the CCM's news conference in the Capitol complex Wednesday, then announced that the gun-control proposals would not succeed in stopping future incidents similar to the Newtown shootings. "The problem is mental health and school security, not guns," Crook said. "The guy who had the gun, he broke, I don't know, 14, 15 laws. So he's a criminal. So...

    Feds have no legitimate role in regulating firearmsIf you have listened to President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden talk about guns in the past month, you have heard them express a decided commitment to use the powers of the federal government to maintain safety in the United States. You also have heard congressional voices from politicians in both parties condemning violence and promising to do something about it. This sounds very caring and inside the wheelhouse of what we hire and pay the federal government to do. Yet it is clearly unconstitutional. When the Founders created the American...

It should be realized, it was the deranged people who killed those innocent people not the gun....

    Guns and abortion. One is an enumerated, constitutional right, and the other is not. The Second Amendment guarantees the right of the people of the United States to keep and bear arms. It’s not a government-given right; it’s a natural right—the right to defend yourself, your family, and your freedom. In rare circumstances, abortion might be necessary to preserve the mother’s life. But there is no right to kill unborn babies in the U.S. Constitution. But 40 years ago next week the U.S. Supreme Court contended that abortion is an implied “right of privacy,” one that previously had lain hidden...

The fire spread quickly, and 95 lives were lost that awful day, 92 of them children. There was a chance it was arson, or just a boy playing with matches at the foot of the stairs – though it could have been something as innocent as a surprised smoker ditching the cigarette before being caught in the act.

In addition to favoring a limit on ammunition magazines, Inslee reiterated his support of the federal assault-weapons ban he voted for as a member of Congress in...

It lumps limited government activists with three movements it identifies as “a racist/white supremacy movement, an anti-federalist movement and a fundamentalist movement.”...

Lawmakers asked the Green Mountain Care Board to examine the costs of coverage for people who are here illegally. But officials say it's difficult to nail down a price tag because there are no firm numbers of how many undocumented people live in Vermont. It's estimated to be between 1,500 and 3,000. "But we did learn, I think, enough kind of useful facts about the demographics of the population and some...

On Thursday, Matthews suggested it was pro-Second Amendment conservatives who fit the description.

NBC was especially egregious in an infringement when editing the tapes of the white Hispanic and when called out about the editing of the tape stated that although the tape was a fake...

Besides gun control these include immigration, the pace of withdrawal from Afghanistan and the nomination of Republican senator Chuck Hagel as Defense secretary, a red flag for the GOP’s neo-conservative wing.” “Picking fights with Republicans”, “challenging the most conservative members of his own party” is not Barack Hussein Obama at his worst. It’s how his unchecked policies are dismantling the USA that is the...

She argued that separation from her young child now would do irreparable psychological damage to him. Alekhina and two other female members of the punk band were convicted last year of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred for...
