  • Actress Susan Olsen fired from radio show after homophobic rant (Says Trump is Right)

    Here's the story of a not-so-lovely lady. Actress Susan Olsen — who played the youngest daughter Cindy on "The Brady Bunch" — was just fired from her hosting gig on an L.A. radio show over a homophobic rant she sent over Facebook. The Donald Trump supporter co-hosted the show "Two Chicks Talkin' Politics" before she was dismissed by the station, according to reports. Olsen used a homophobic slur over and over again towards openly gay actor Leon Acord-Whiting, who decided to publish the once-private message publicly.

    One year after gun violence at Clackamas Town Center and in Newtown, Conn., shook communities across this nation, we have yet to settle the debate on gun safety in Salem or our nation’s capital. As we continue to mourn these tragedies, we must do more to prevent them from happening again. We in public health are thoroughly committed to protecting the safety of our communities. The Oregon Public Health Association and the National Physicians Alliance support state and federal efforts to ensure background checks for all gun purchases. Without background checks, guns in the hands of dangerous individuals continue to...
  • Sales of assault weapons surge in Maryland, gun sellers say (Brady Bunch endorse O'Malley's actions)

    NBC News ^ | April 6, 2013 | Chris Gordon
    The sale of military-style weapons in Maryland has skyrocketed because of the concern they'll will be banned once the strict gun control bill passed by the Maryland General Assembly on Thursday goes into effect. At Engage Armament in Rockville, there are only a few assault weapons left because so many have been sold in anticipation of gun restrictions. Ammunition has gone up in price -- that is, if you can even find bullets in stock. "Everything's been bought up and we've had ammunition that came right off the trucks," said A.J. Wynne, an employee at Engage Armament. "They'd say, 'What...

    Tragedies often bring out the best in people. Responding to a tweet by author Joyce Carol Oates, actress Marg Helgenberger said "one can only hope" that members of the NRA get shot, Twitchy reported Tuesday. "If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms," Oates tweeted Friday. "@JoyceCarolOates One can only hope, but sadly I don't think anything would change," the CSI star tweeted in response. This wasn't taken particularly well: "@MargHelgen @JoyceCarolOates are you encouraging violence against those who dare disagree with you?" asked "Jeremy Avery." "Congrats for becoming yet another clueless, VIOLENT,...

    CHICAGO— Chicago police are joining anti-gun violence groups in voicing concerns about a bill that would allow Illinois residents to get permits to carry concealed firearms. Assistant police superintendent Jimmy Jackson says he's concerned about gaps in the mental health screening system for would-be gun owners. He spoke at a Chicago news conference held by the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

    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...

    A wounded survivor of the Tucson shooting that critically injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is blaming Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck, and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy. “It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW. “Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled — senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls,” he added, referring to the death of Christina...

    As a candidate for president, Sen. Barack Obama nonetheless pledged to revive the assault-weapons ban. These weapons serve no conceivable lawful purpose. Mayors and police chiefs, whose constituencies pay the bloodiest price for traffic in such guns, have pleaded for sensible laws. In Mexico, where assault weapons purchased in the United States have been responsible for tens of thousands of murders, Mr. Obama's counterpart, Felipé Calderon, has lodged similar requests. But President Obama has taken only minor steps toward redeeming Candidate Obama's promise. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a nonprofit organization that advocates for gun control, noted that...

    In soft-pedaling that 2009 encounter, Giffords was doing a balancing act that she’d perfected during her political career as a rather progressive Democrat in a increasingly conservative state. She was the spunky Western girl with a populist agenda mixed with down-home values, one of which was opposition to gun control. But those protesters had been following her around for a while. Her staff members were clearly scared for her, and they put me in touch with Ruiz, who told me the story. Back then, the amazing thing about the incident in the supermarket parking lot was that the guy with...

    Its gun laws are among the most lenient, allowing even a disturbed man like Mr. Loughner to buy a pistol and carry it concealed without a special permit. That was before the Tucson rampage. Now, having seen first hand the horror of political violence, Arizona should lead the nation in quieting the voices of intolerance, demanding an end to the temptations of bloodshed, and imposing sensible controls on its instruments.

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 01/10/2010 | Molly Hennessy-Fiske
    Arizona has some of the weakest gun control laws in the nation. To gun owners, those laws — which allow them to carry guns in their cars, in restaurants and other public places — are their last defense against unexpected evil. Gun control activists say the state's laws put weapons into the hands of the mentally unstable, and demand that federal officials impose tougher background checks and reinstate a ban on assault weapons. Pima County Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik said the state's gun laws contributed to the shooting. He singled out the law passed last year that allows those 21...
