    The federal agency charged with screening employees for security clearance offered hints about how to cut corners,..could have led to the clearance the Navy Yard shooter needed to access the base, the House’s top investigator said. Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican and chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said his staffers have come across verbal and written policies from the Office of Personnel Management that indicate the security clearance process was short-circuited in the case of Aaron Alexis, the Navy Yard shooter. But Mr. Issa says OPM is refusing to turn over those documents and allowing them...
  • Government, Left Pushes 'Virtual Gun Control'

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | September 28, 2013 | Mike Flynn
    Having defeated President Obama’s quest to shoot holes in the Second Amendment, a GOP Leadership aide recently told the Huffington Post the House would soon spend time examining the link between link between video games and violence, essentially kicking off a campaign for “virtual gun control.” Make no mistake; the road to gun control and the road to virtual gun control leads to the same destination — restrictions on your liberty. Part of the fallacy of gun control rests in the belief that in inanimate object can be responsible for the acts of the person in control of it. No...

    How did the MSM get the D.C. Navy Yard shooting wrong? Let us count the ways. In watching the coverage of the Washington Navy Yard shooting as it unfolded last Monday, I had to remind myself that most of the reports I was hearing would surely turn out to be incorrect, in some cases wildly so. And indeed this turned out to be the case. We were told, for example, that there was more than one gunman, and that one of them was armed with an AR-15 rifle. Even worse, both CBS and NBC identified the wrong man as the...

    American Thinker ^ | September 26, 2013 | J.R. Dunn
    One thing generally overlooked in the uproar over the Washington Navy Yard shooting -- and all other recent mass shootings -- is that guns are being used to shield failed liberal policies. Such policies have been implicated in most, if not all, gun massacres. As is customary when encountering failure, liberals immediately cast around looking for someone or something else to blame, in this case, guns and anything associated with them, including the NRA, the bitter clingers, and so on. The failed policies they are attempting to protect include: �-� Gun-Free Zones -- According to John Lott, Jr. every last...

    Gun grabbers have found an issue where they can get almost unanimous consent across the board, including from gun owners. Nobody wants the dangerously insane to have weapons. not even the NRA. So using that bit of light coming in under the edge of the door, they’ve found a point of attack. Since we all agree that the insane shouldn’t have guns, we’ll pass a law to enforce that. And then we’ll start dumbing down the definition of “insane” to include as many people as possible. Because in the end, this was never about helping people. This is about taking...

    An NRA commentator is claiming gun rights are like gay rights. Put simply, they’re not. Here’s what led to this ridiculous comparison and why these two topics are so very different. Starbucks recently had to make a little request to customers: that they do not bring firearms into the coffee chain’s stores because, they feel, having to have one eye on the man with the gun while drinking your latte should not be part of the “Starbucks experience.” Prior to this, the gun lobby had used Starbucks’ uneasy silence regarding gun carrying in store to peddle so-called Starbucks Appreciation Days,...

    Journalism isn’t what is used to be, and it wasn’t great to begin with. Last week a man who heard voices in his head followed the advice from the voices in Joe Biden’s head about armament, bought a shotgun, hacked off the barrel and killed a bunch of people in the Washing Navy Yard. As with all such incidents, two completely predictable occurrences came to pass. First, after waiting for facts to emerge, the sanity of the suspect was shown to be non-existent. Second, the gun control industry did not wait for facts to emerge. Neither did the media. One...

    On Monday, September 16, 2013, a gunman entered the Washington Navy Yards and began a shooting rampage in which a dozen were killed and still more were wounded. As America watched in horror, President Barack Hussein Obama delivered a televised rant, attacking Republicans, conservatives, and of course, the law-abiding firearms owners who might have helped to stop the carnage, had they been allowed. The National Rifle Association has a practice of not talking politics on the day that such events unfold. Even though such occasions are invariably excellent examples of the need for gun ownership by the law-abiding – in...

    If the Devil had his own bible, it would probably take the form of a computer game. It would be sly and witty, enjoyable and slick. It would start with small, almost funny misdeeds. It would offer the player the joys of money, successful violence and easy, responsibility-free sex. There would be drugs which didn’t fry your brain or burn holes in your nose. You would be made to feel brave, while not actually needing to be. None of your pleasures would be paid for in coin, pain or grief. Everyone else in the game would be disposable and forgettable....

    StoryLeak Blog ^ | September 17, 2013 | Anthony Gucciardi
    New information on the history and motivations of Aaron Alexis, the Navy Yard shooter who took the lives of 12 individuals, reveals that Alexis was fueled by what he felt was ‘racial discrimination’ during his top secret level job. The news not only ties in with the fact that the mega media and establishment have created a neo race war through the race baiting of the Trayvon Martin case and others (as top rappers agree), but also the prediction that such race baiting tactics would continue to generate racially charged violence on a major scale. And we’ve already seen this...

    Is anyone else ticked that we’ve all been forced to know the now-dead-and-in-hell piece of shiitake named Aaron Alexis? However livid we may be, I’m sure it can’t compare to the rage the family members and friends of the ones he mowed down must feel. For those who only watch MTV and have no clue who Aaron Alexis is, well, he’s the dude that shot and killed twelve innocent people at the Navy Yard military base in D.C. last Monday. That would be as in Washington, D.C. It’s the same D.C. that has uberstrict, leftist guns laws in place that,...

    The Santa Clarita Valley Signal ^ | September 20, 2013 | Rick Jensen
    Liberals at MSNBC and dozens of web sites are shocked at President Obama’s “problem with his tone” in politically attacking Republicans over spending while a mentally ill murderer was gunning down citizens at the Navy Yard. The President does not have a “problem with his tone.” Yes, his politically-driven insensitivity made the country wince, but it’s nothing new. Consider the well-documented history of President Obama’s “tone”: Obama’s gloating and criticism of Republicans, blaming them entirely for failing to agree with all of his tax increases for avoiding the so-called “fiscal cliff.” He has called Americans “lazy,” and looks down upon...

    All of us were horrified by the murders at the Washington Navy Yard this week. Once again, in the aftermath of a shooting, a new installment of the debate about gun laws has broken out. But what we really need is a new discussion about what kind of people we are and what kind of country we want to be. It’s no secret which side I’m on in any debate involving the Second Amendment (or the whole Constitution, for that matter). We call Alaska America’s Last Frontier, and firearms are a big part of our lifestyle here because they are...

    The White House is rushing to organize a Sunday memorial service for victims of the Navy Yard shooting, leaving top defense officials worried that it will not properly honor the 12 people shot dead on Monday. The White House gave Navy Yard brass less than 12 hours to assemble a 2,500-person guest list composed of service members and contractors affected by Monday’s mass shooting, according to exclusive emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. “Urgent tasking in support of Sunday’s Memorial Ceremony. By 0730 tomorrow we need an estimate of how many employees want to attend the NAVSEA Memorial Ceremony,”...

Twelve people are murdered in a rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, and before sundown Sen. Dianne Feinstein has called for yet another debate on gun violence. Major opprobrium is heaped on the AR-15, the semiautomatic used in the Newtown massacre.

    Monday morning, the United States saw yet another mass shooting. The Navy Yard shooting occurred only 2.5 miles away from the White House, shocking the nation and reminding citizens that nowhere in America is safe from gun violence. Since President Obama took office in 2008, Americans have witnessed at least 19 mass shootings. All received exclusive media coverage, a type of coverage that has yet to occur when violence takes the lives of youth in minority communities across the nation. It is clear that in America you are in danger simply by living out your daily life. But it seems...
