    Rasmussen Reports ^ | April 4, 2013 | NA
    A sizable number of Americans think the federal government is coming after their guns. Forty-four percent (44%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is at least somewhat likely that the government will try to confiscate all privately owned guns over the next generation or so, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Fifty percent (50%) feel gun confiscation is unlikely. This includes 20% who think the government is Very Likely to make this move and 23% who say it’s Not At All Likely... --snip-- The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on March 30-31, 2013 by Rasmussen...
  • Just Say NO To The UN… A UN Allied Group Declares War On Your Firearms Rights & Senator Rand Paul

    01/17/2012 11:30:14 AM PST · by Sasparilla · 5 replies
    “Global Action to Prevent War,” is an allied organization recognized by the United Nations in their continuing effort to strip Americans of their right to Keep and Bear arms. The UN gives support to organizations such as the GAPW, which, according to their website, is putting forth a radical plan of Global Governance. They join with groups like the “International Action Network on Small Arms,” (IANSA) both of which are trying to foist upon us the UN’s “Arms Trade Treaty” and “Programme of Action on Small Arms.” Groups like the these have a history of trying to destroy our sovereignty...

    In the aftermath of the attempted murder of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords earlier this month, lawmakers on Capitol Hill have proposed a cluster of gun control measures ranging from a ban to knowingly carrying a firearm within 1,000 feet of certain high-profile government officials to a proposal to allow members of Congress to carry firearms in the U.S. Capitol. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy formally introduced her own bill on the House floor Tuesday that would ban high-capacity ammunition clips like the one Jared Loughner used to gun down 19 individuals in the Tucson shooting Jan. 8. McCarthy, who is regarded as one...

    Recently, retired military have received e-mail messages notifying them of a withholding tax increase. The email states: NO ANNUAL COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT (COLA) WILL BE ADDED TO MILITARY RETIRED PAY IN 2010. DUE TO RECENT LEGISLATION YOUR FEDERAL WITHHOLDING TAX HAS CHANGED. After much investigating and several discussions with the IRS, it appears the Democrats have played a “cash-flow trick” on working Americans and are taking more out of American’s paychecks across the board–all the while touting the Making Work Pay tax credit. The trick, when looking at the new withholding tax tables for 2010 as compared to post-stimulus...

    Rasmussen/ The Lid ^ | 6/17/09 | The Lid
    Its time for the democrats in Congress to remember why humans have two ears, Two eyes and only one mouth, they are supposed to look and listen twice as often as they speak. While they continue to talk to each other about Obamacare and a government-run heath option, poll after poll are saying that the people of America say NO WAY. A New Rasmussen study reports by a big margin (50%-35%) American voters disapprove of a government run health option. Last month 41% of American adults thought setting up a government health insurance company to compete with private health insurance...

    Environmental Protection Agency officials have silenced one of their own senior researchers after the 38-year employee issued an internal critique of the EPA's climate change position. Alan Carlin, senior operations research analyst at the EPA's National Center for Environmental Economics, or NCEE, submitted his research on the agency's greenhouse gases endangerment findings and offered a fundamental critique on the EPA's approach to combating CO2 emissions. But officials refused to share his conclusion in an open internal discussion, claiming his research would have "a very negative impact on our office." His study was barred from circulation within the EPA and was...
  • Senator Orrin G. Hatch: Gun-rights supporters are misrepresented

    Deseret News ^ | April 29, 2009 | Orrin G. Hatch
    In recent weeks, there have been countless statements made by politicians, pundits and even the Department of Homeland Security that gun ownership or support for the Second Amendment is connected to, if not synonymous with, violent behavior. Unfortunately, this false assumption has permeated its way into the Utah media's editorials, political cartoons and news stories. Short on facts, those making these accusations have decided to disparage and marginalize those who support the rights of law-abiding gun owners. We saw this in the recent DHS report that equated opposition to gun-control legislation with right-wing extremism. I suppose we'd better keep an...
