    Chris Christie say he has finally made a definitive decision, once and for all, not to run for president in 2012, sources close to the New Jersey governor told Fox News on Tuesday. Despite the intensity that has heightened in recent days as the New Jersey governor prepares to deliver a speech Tuesday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, several people close to the governor insist he has not changed his mind to forego a presidential bid. Christie is on tour, attending seven fundraisers in three states, which has fueled speculation that he could be preparing for a 2012 bid....

    From: pmmchugh@comcast.net Subject: Urgent Action Alert Date: Wed, 2 Feb 2011 11:01:39 -0500 I've just received word from inside sources in the U.S. Senate. Senate Democrats are planning to execute a sneak attack on gun rights as soon as TODAY! Their plan is to sneak Carolyn McCarthy's Magazine Ban into law as an amendment to the Federal Aviation Administration Bill, a routine piece of generally non-controversial legislation. And they hope YOU won't notice. That's why you and I need to make our voices heard RIGHT NOW! We need to let them know we're watching them like a hawk! Please call...

    Cultists now in charge Gene Lyons Some years ago, I reported on a self-defense/gun-safety class mainly for women at Rice University. There had been several forcible rapes on the Houston, Texas, campus. Students had armed themselves. The instructor was an Army ROTC officer. A Vietnam combat veteran, he found the prospect of undergraduates packing heat unsettling, but reasoned that if they were arming themselves anyway, some training was better than none. Unlike many entrepreneurs teaching concealed-carry classes from sea to shining sea, he urged students to leave their guns at home. He stressed that he couldn’t turn them into infantry...

    BELLEVUE, Wash., Jun 17, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels, newly-elected president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, will be using his new position to push an anti-gun agenda at a White House meeting planned later this summer, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms warned today. "Greg Nickels knows he will find a sympathetic ear in the Oval Office for his illegal gun control scheme," said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. "Like Barack Obama, Mayor Nickels is an opponent of legal concealed carry, and he desperately wants the authority to unilaterally ban the lawful...

    "All military type firearms are to be handed in immediately ...The SS, SA and Stahlhelm give every respectable German man the opportunity of campaigning with them. Therefore anyone who does not belong to one of the above named organizations and who unjustifiably nevertheless keeps his weapon ... must be regarded as an enemy of the national government." -- SA Oberfuhrer of Bad Tolz, March, 1933. "There is, however, no right to place military-style assault weapons into the hands of terrorists and/or criminals who wish to cause American families harm. There is no right to have access to the weapons of...

    TACOMA — Standing just yards from the gun shop where the Beltway sniper suspects are said to have obtained a rifle, gun-control advocates yesterday called for new laws that would restrict firearms sales at gun shows and make it easier to identify guns used in crimes. Members of Washington CeaseFire, joined by several legislators, stood in the wind and rain outside Bull's Eye Shooter Supply and said it is time to close a loophole in state law that allows pistols, rifles and shotguns to be sold at gun shows without the standard background checks required at gun shops. The group...
