    Up to 50-80% of all guns in circulation could be covered Press reports now make it clear what Vice President Joe Biden’s gun control package will look like. Biden wants to impose: * A Feinstein-like semi-auto ban which, according to experts who have done the counting, could ban up to 50% of all long guns currently in circulation and up to 80% of all handguns. Incidentally, if you wanted to keep the AR-15 you currently have, you would have to have a 6-month FBI background check, be fingerprinted, and get a machine gun-type license. * The framework for national gun...

    Now the other shoes begin to drop. Voters knew in November that many of the promises Obama made in 2008 had been broken. The economy had not revived as he had promised it would ("or we'll be talking about a one-term proposition"). He has not "changed the tone in Washington" -- except for the worse. He didn't prevent lobbyists from holding positions in his administration. He didn't cut the deficit in half; he increased it radically. But voters apparently decided that the president deserved credit for good intentions. How long will that indulgence last? The next four years, whatever else...

    The sane reaction to the Sandy Hook shooting might have been to look at the country’s mental illness infrastructure. The shooter in the case was clearly sick, and mental illness is the common denominator among these mass shootings, after all, from Newtown to Tucson to Aurora to Virginia Tech and beyond. Instead, look at what we’re doing. The White House and many in Congress have targeted legal gun owners and guns; at least one lawmaker in Iowa has openly called for confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens; and several media outlets have even run maps showing the homes, addresses and...

    An on-again, off-again move by the Obama administration to scrap the federal gas tax in favor of a pay-per-mile fee would boost the tab to Americans as high as 250 percent, raising their current tax of 18.4 cents a gallon to as high as 46 cents, according to a new government study. But without a tax increase, said the Government Accountability Office study, the government's highway fund is going to go dry. One reason the fund is going broke: President Obama's push for fuel efficient cars has resulted in better mileage, and fewer stops at the pump. The GAO study...

The true reality in today’s AmeriKa is that individual liberty is the most despised activity that any citizen can exert in their lives.

"What I will not do is to have that negotiation with a gun at the head of the American people," he told a news conference.

It is not clear whether Biden will seek the Oval Office next time -- he will be 73 years old when 2016 rolls around. But just in case, the political foundation is carefully being laid and the public expectation is being buttressed by White House strategists, and dutifully documented by the media. “Biden stokes talk of presidential campaign in 2016,” said a headline in Sunday’s Washington Examiner.

    Ironic it is that “anti-trust” is a very common phrase inside the beltway. It is growing outside as well. When applied to people and institutions, “trust” means the confident expectation of them doing something specific, such as keeping their word, being honest, not stealing from you and deferring to your personal prerogatives. The antithesis of trust – or anti-trust, to abuse the term – requires either violating the basic principles of trust or being of such low character as to never earn trust. Congress doubled down on their anti-trust personae. One should never trust any politician. By their nature, they...

    This was WAY back in 2010 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUd-slJc-GY"...your employer, it's estimated, would see premiums fall by as much as 3000% which means they could give you a raise."Steve Gilbert had some fun with this: Let’s say an employer pays $4,000 in health care premiums for an employee. If his premium goes down 100% he will save $4,000 dollars. If it goes down 3,000% that is a savings of $4,000 x 30 which = $120,000. Which means that an employer will make a $120,000 profit on each employee’s healthcare insurance once Obama-care is passed. You can buy a lot of unicorns with...

    The Left Is Convinced Americans Won’t Fight For 2nd Amendment Rights Once cowed at the thought of provoking Second Amendment supporters, leftists will soon attempt to ban “assault weapons” (and much more) as legislation offered by Dianne Feinstein makes its way to the Senate floor. It seems that D.C. liberals have finally become convinced that American gun owners are too cowardly, too lazy or too dependent upon the generosity of Big Brother to fight for their Second Amendment rights. During the past four years, the gun banning-Left have watched as American buyers broke sales records in the purchase of semi-automatic...

    Stick to your guns–no matter what! by Matt Bracken, January 2013 If a firearm was legal in 2012, under the 2nd Amendment it’s still legal in 2013 and it will be legal forever, no matter what so-called “executive orders” are handed down or new “laws” are passed by a panicking Congress. Those who say otherwise are liars and traitors and oath breakers and domestic enemies. If they come to take away your guns by force, they have declared war on the Constitution, and on you. At that point, war is joined, just as it was during another famous gun confiscation...

    President Obama kicked off the final news conference of his first term by renewing his call for Congress to approve a “balanced” deficit-reduction package that includes both spending cuts and new revenues. Republican leaders have said repeatedly that the Jan. 1 fiscal cliff agreement ended any discussion of raising new revenue and that in upcoming negotiations they would deal only in spending cuts. Obama made clear that he does not agree. He reiterated that he is “open to making modest adjustments to programs like Medicare.” “The fact is, though, we can’t finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts...

    The Obama Administration is the number one threat to the nation’s gun rights advocates. In the four years since Barack Obama was first elected president in November 2008, an estimated 67 million firearms have been purchased in the United States. In November a record 2 million guns were sold in America. This was followed up by another record in December. 2.7 million guns were sold in America in the last month of 2012.

    Anyone know what Vice President Joe Biden’s gamer handle is? Maybe “StandUpChuck” or “Amtrak1” or “NoChanceIn2016?” How about Attorney General Eric Holder (“Fast-
andFuriousUnleashed”)? Or Health and Human Services chief Kathleen Sebelius (“WhatsAGamerHandle?”). I ask because these folks led Friday’s session of the White House task force that grilled members of the video game industry. Three people who couldn’t tell “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” from “Assassin’s Creed II.” To be honest, I’m not entirely sure I could, either. (Is “Halo” the one with Master Chief, or is it “Gears of War”?) But I’m not the one accusing an entire multibillion-dollar,...
