  • Palmetto State Armory issues statement on 2nd Amendment

    03/01/2018 9:07:10 PM PST · by NKP_Vet · 39 replies ^ | March 1, 2018 | Maurice T. Miller
    Palmetto State Armory issued a statement after Dick’s Sporting Goods announced Thursday that it would no longer sell assault rifles or high capacity magazines at its 35 Field and Stream stores. Dick’s also announced that it would no longer sell firearms or ammunition to anyone under the age of 21. Walmart made a similar announcement Thursday. PALMETTO STATE ARMORY STATEMENT BELOW Palmetto State Armory would like to go on record stating that we support the Second Amendment. While this may seem like an obvious statement, we as a company felt it necessary to make our opinion known to the general...

    Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among a number of celebrities urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and concealed carry of firearms in the wake of the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this month. Laura Dern, Bill Hader, and Adam Scott are also taking part in the anti-gun campaign, as is noted gun control advocate Julianne Moore. The celebrities are part of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety PSA against the NRA specifically, and against gun rights generally. In typical Everytown fashion, the PSA does not present real solutions to the attack in Vegas–after...

    France’s PSA Group, maker of Peugeot and Citroën cars, says it’s exploring a “potential acquisition” of Opel, the money-losing European business of General Motors Co. […] GM has endured years of losses at Opel, its main brand in Europe. It had hoped to reach break-even by now, but last year posted a loss of $257 million for the year. …
  • Man 'cured' of prostate cancer after doctors shock tumour to death with testosterone

    11/30/2016 7:21:13 PM PST · by Enterprise · 26 replies ^ | 30 NOVEMBER 2016 | Sarah Knapton
    A man with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors 'shocked' his tumour to death with huge amounts of testosterone. The result has been described as 'unexpected' and 'exciting' because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumours of testosterone, because cancer uses it as a fuel.

    Examiner ^ | 5/27/15 | David Codrea
    Per my report published Friday at The Shooter’s Log, actors were used to portray customers in a fake gun shop “public service announcement” produced by States United Against Gun Violence. That information comes from the New York City Mayor's Office of Media in its response to a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request submitted in March. Additionally, all replica firearms used were evidently “authorized” without official documentation to ensure legality and inventory accountability. Except, per the NYC permit, the "gun buyers" were actors... States United to Prevent Gun Violence-You Tube video screen shot “Actors are interviewed on camera in a...

    The controversial Dec. 13 clip from Sleeper 13 Productions in San Francisco, titled “Stop Gun Violence - PSA,” shows a teenage boy take a handgun from his mother’s dresser drawer, stash it in his backpack, and bring it to class. Walking up to his teacher after the period ends, the student slaps the gun on her desk. “Can you take this away?” the child actor asks the shocked teacher. “I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house.” Then the messages “Our children deserve a safe world” and “Stop gun violence now” are plastered onscreen before production credits run,...

    Senator Larry Martin was responsible for heading the effort to kill the legislative efforts in support of open carry in South Carolina. During this effort, he said the following. “If the 2nd amendment has been as you interpret it, why hasn’t SC law reflected that for the last 140 years? I’m sorry but you are describing an ‘unlimited’ right that has never been the case with the 2nd Amendment. My view of the 2nd Amendment has always been the right to own guns and keep them in our homes, business, and property and not to wear a gun whenever to...

  • Using the Zimmerman Case to Campaign Against "Stand Your Ground" is a Non-Starter

    O'Mara Law Blog ^ | 8/20/2013 | Mark O'Mara
    I’ve watched the “Stand Up to ‘Stand Your Ground’” PSA several times now. The PSA features a dramatic reenactment of the encounter between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. While the PSA uses actual audio from George’s non-emergency call and witness 911 calls, the visual details of the reenactment are wildly inaccurate and they are unsupported by the actual evidence. By airing an interpretation of events that are easily dismissed as factual fantasy, the proponents for changes in the self-defense statutes in various states are actually damaging their arguments. I have stated that Florida Statute 776 can use some polishing to...

    One rule of thumb when hosting a radio talk show: don’t bring an audio clip on the air “cold,” i.e., without having heard it yourself. That’s probably especially true when you’re guest-hosting for a good friend and mentor. However, after Hot Air reader Tim R sent this to me near the end of the first hour of last night’s Hugh Hewitt show, I asked Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson to check it out for hour two as I was wrapping up an interview with John Eastman on the recess-appointment ruling. In the break, I asked, “Can we use that?” Duane answered, “Oh,...
  • Cuomo Dipping Toe In '16 Water With Star-Studded Hurricane Sandy PSA?

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Throughout his tenure as Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo has chosen to maintain a suprisingly low profile. Think quick: how much footage have you seen of him in the Hurricane Sandy aftermath compared to his cross-George Washington Bridge buddy, Chris Christie? But has Cuomo finally decided the time has come to make himself more visible? A PSA for Hurricane Relief, aired on Morning Joe today, featured a star-studded cast of Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Whoopi Goldberg, Edie Falco, Michael J. Fox and Julianna Margulies and Nathan Lane. One panel, devoid of reference to the relief organization, starkly read "Join...

    A day after a government panel said that healthy men should no longer get screened for prostate cancer, some doctors’ groups and cancer patients’ advocates began a campaign to convince the nation that the advice was misguided. Their hope is to copy the success of women’s groups that successfully persuaded much of the country two years ago that it was a mistake for the same panel, the United States Preventive Services Task Force, to recommend against routine mammograms for women in their 40s.

    Transcript JEFFREY BROWN: Men shouldn't be routinely tested for prostate cancer. That was the recommendation today of an influential government panel that looked at whether PSA tests can extend lives by detecting cancer earlier.The tests measure levels of a protein made in the prostate. But the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force said they do more harm than good, including unnecessary biopsies, surgery, radiation and impotence. The panel concluded that -- quote -- "The common perception that early detection prolongs lives is not supported by the scientific evidence."Last year, more than 217,000 American men were diagnosed with prostate cancer; 32,000 died...

    The great faith of Americans in their 401ks as retirement funding is misplaced. When push comes to shove and you retire, if you are like most Americans, you will find that social security provides more income for you than drawing down on your 401k balance. Now, don’t get me wrong. I urge everyone to invest the maximum in their 401k. It is a great source of comfort and eventually a key part of retirement. But it is no substitute for social security. Those who would sacrifice social security so that you could put more into 401ks or other private savings...
