    Worth reading article written by John Baden at Opposing Views I pity those fools who still believe Democrats "learned their lesson" not to mess with another gun ban or "Obama has too much on his hands" to push for new anti-gun legislation. The truth is: 1. Democrats never learn from their own mistakes (otherwise they wouldn't be Democrats) and, 2. Obama has plenty of mainstream media ass kissers at his disposal who are more than happy to start an anti-gun public swaying campaign for him. Just wait for the next mad gunman incident and you'll see how every talking head...

    The Birmingham News ^ | December 02, 2008 | VAL WALTON
    Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford was arrested Monday after being charged in a federal indictment that accuses the former Jefferson County commissioner with receiving more than $236,000 in expensive clothes, designer watches and cash to pay his personal debt as part of a conspiracy to funnel county financial business to two of his friends. A special federal grand jury in Birmingham returned a 101-count indictment against Langford, the former commission president; Montgomery investment banker Bill Blount and lobbyist Al LaPierre. The indictment includes charges of conspiracy, bribery, fraud, money laundering and filing false income tax returns in what prosecutors described as...
  • Barack Obama wants you (to spill your secrets): Is the new administration being smart -- or scary?

    Salon ^ | November 24, 2008 | Michael Martin
    In his first press conference after the election, Barack Obama cracked a joke about Nancy Reagan holding séances in the White House. (It was factually inaccurate; the former first lady was into horoscopes, not "Hellraiser.") This provoked the administration’s first apology, but not the first bipartisan critique. That came a week later, with the release of the administration’s job application. In 63 questions over seven pages, prospective White House employees are being asked — in addition to questions about finances, gun ownership and, possibly, flossing habits — to list “all aliases or ‘handles’ you have used to communicate on the...

    Business is booming for local gun dealers. Propelled by concerns over the election of Barack Obama and Democratic control of the U.S. House and Senate, guns are flying off the shelf at a record rate, said Craig Ball, manager of Impact Guns, 2710 S. 1900 West. "We're selling every one we can get, and it's not just here, it's all over the country," he said. "We've had standing orders for these for months, and right now all the distributors nationwide are out. Everyone's snapping them (guns) up." Ball said Wednesday was the busiest day he's ever seen at the Ogden...
  • Obama Victory Means ‘Stronger Support for Sensible Gun Laws’

    The strong Election Day showing for Democrats signals stronger support for “sensible gun laws” in this country and a “significant setback” for the National Rifle Association, a gun control group said Tuesday night. The Brady Campaign issued a statement even before Sen. Barack Obama was declared the winner, saying the political environment is better than it’s been in years for “progress on gun violence prevention.” The NRA spent millions on ads during the campaign, warning that Sen. Barack Obama would be the most anti-gun president in American history. But according to the Brady Campaign, the NRA failed to deliver its...

    Freudenschade, baby! This is a special edition of the DUmmie FUnnies. Instead of DUmmies or KOmmies or HUffies, we are focusing on Slate senior writer, Timothy Noah, who is so confident of Obama's "victory" in November that he jumped the gun and posted the not so hidden liberal agenda out in the open. You can read his Slate ARTICLE titled, "The New Complacency," as well as an ANALYSIS of that article over at NewsBusters. So let us now join honorary DUmmie Timothy Noah in mid-gloat as he is about to reveal WAY too much in Bolshevik Red while the...

    Okay, I agree, it’s an odious choice, and thanks to the media and our two-party system, we have to make a difficult decision. But your freedom and your right to bear arms are in the balance. If you stay home, or vote the way your union tells you to, or vote for “change,” you will get screwed in a place you will find very uncomfortable. Let me explain why.The two contenders are Barack Obama and John McCain. McCain has not always, admittedly, been the best friend of American gun owners.Obama, on the other hand, has a long, documented, and consistent...

    Albert Lea Tribune ^ | 17 July, 2008 | John Holly
    In one of Senate candidate Al Franken’s literary efforts titled “Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot,” he reveals his personal feelings about a topic important to many Minnesotans. In Chapter 12 of his book, I learned that candidate Franken is against private ownership of guns due to his belief that firearms in the home are “too dangerous.” I believe these views are more consistent with California or New York, where Mr. Franken still maintains corporate interests. His problem is Minnesota has always been a pro-gun state. Remember, a bipartisan majority passed “conceal and carry.” I called the National Rifle...

    The director of the FBI is not happy with the Supreme Court's recent handgun ruling. Robert Mueller says he tends to believe that "weapons harm people, and more often than not they harm the people carrying them." Mueller said the high court's decision, which threw out a handgun ban in Washington, D.C., "does throw a lot of things up in the air." Mueller said communities will now have to decide their own licensing programs. Mueller was speaking at a convention of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators in Hartford, Connecticut. He says with his grandchildren going to college,...
  • NRA Plans Blitz Against Obama

    The National Rifle Association "plans to spend about $40 million on this year's presidential campaign, with $15 million of that devoted to portraying Sen. Barack Obama as a threat to the Second Amendment rights upheld last week by the Supreme Court," according to Politico. "The politically powerful gun rights group will split its message efforts between communicating with its 4 million members and the tens of millions more firearms owners across the country." So far, a USA Today analysis shows outside groups "have spent more than $25 million since Jan. 1, 2007, on independent expenditures, and more than 70% has...

    Sen. John McCain praised Mayor Bloomberg yesterday - talking up Hizzoner as a strong candidate for governor and refusing to rule him out as a vice presidential candidate. Asked during an interview with The Post whether the term-limited billionaire mayor should be able to seek re-election to a third term, he said there's been "some speculation" about Bloomberg trying to move to Albany. "Do I think he could serve the state of New York and the country well? Of course," McCain said, during a sitdown at the New York Hilton. He was also asked about having the mayor as his...
