“Gun control laws are like OSHA for criminals. When criminals have guns and their victims don’t, crime becomes a safer occupation. In some countries with strict gun-control laws, burglars enter houses while people are still at home several times as often as that happens in the United States.”
— Thomas Sowell

Former adult film actress Jenna Jameson nails the difference between the first tweets made on September 11 by Gov. Mitt Romney and our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama. They clearly show that one is a true leader with concern for America and has a real connection to the American people. The other is a sleazy political hack from Chicago.
The democrats’ War on Women is still in full frontal assault mode. As I have pointed out before, if you want to know what the left is up to, just review what they are accusing their opponents of.
The New York Times finally admits that the “Assault Weapon” scare was hoax, an attempt to bamboozle the American people, and that the 1994 semi-automatic rifle ban did nothing to reduce crime, violent crime, or crimes committed with a firearm.

Let’s start with a couple of RKBA related stories. The city of Chicago, were over 40 people shot and four killed last weekend, has to pay the NRA nearly $1 million in legal fees. A recent study shows that violent crime has gone down as conceal carry permits have been issued to more law abiding Americans. This makes sense to anyone capable of rational thought and basic logic. It makes moonbats go bat shit crazy though, since it doesn’t fit their far left extremist agenda.
A federal judge has tossed out a Obama administration request to have law suits against the IRS dropped. Legal action by nearly a dozen Tea Party groups targeted by the IRS can go forward. Expect more hard drive “crashes”.
First, let’s take a look at our Dear Leader’s former city of residence, Chicago. This is where he made his mark as a “community organizer”, found religion at Rev. Wright’s weekly sermons laced with hate speech, became a state senator, met and married his beard, and where the two daughters were born. In that tribute to over fifty years of straight democrat reign, more than 40 people were shot last weekend. That included four dead. One of which was an eleven year old girl at sleep over. In case you didn’t know this fact already, Chicago has some of the strictest “gun control” laws in the country. This illustrates why they are more accurately called “victim disarmament” laws.
We have learned that congressional subpoenas cause IRS hard drives to crash. The IRS’ refusal to supply information under subpoena has gotten so blatant, that even Lanny Davis, former Clinton spokes weasel, says it is time for special prosecutor. The count of IRS hard drives that crashed due to subpoena as seven. It just almost tripled.
It should not be a surprise to anyone paying attention, but the Obama White House knew of the upcoming flood of illegal aliens crossing the boarder well in advance. They didn’t do anything to avoid it. Remember their motto, “Never let a crisis go to waste.”
“Almost everyday someone on MSNBC wets himself over the fact a free citizen somewhere is carrying a gun. Their proposed solution: the State should better enforce its monopoly on violence.”

This video is very instructive on just how the left “argues.”
After the progressive leftist Joe Klein babbles on about a “national sugar rush”, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin points out that his theory has been disproved by actual research on the subject. Firearm related violence has gone down over the past 40 years and, the federal ten year ban on certain semi-automatic rifles inflicted on law abiding US citizens had no effect on violent crimes committed with semi-automatic rifles (crimes committed with semi-automatic rifles didn’t go down during the ban and they didn’t go up after it ended).
How did the members of the “reality based” progressive left react to actual facts from carefully researched data?
They denied reality and repeated their talking points. Which is fairly consistent behavior pattern for “progressive” leftists. Reality is less important than their political agenda.
Keep in mind they are discussing the Colorado theater shooting. It came out later that the murderer was a progressive leftist. A staunch supporter of the so-called “occupy” movement and a volunteer campaign working for Barack Hussein Obama. It’s a fairly safe bet that he is politically aligned with Joe Klein.

Let’s start with a few firearm/RKBA articles.
James Craig became the Detroit Police Chief last summer. Before that he spent decades working in the Los Angeles Police Department before becoming the Chief of Police in Portland, Maine. In LA, pretty much the only people with firearms are cops and violent criminals. The restrictive, so-called “gun control” laws haven’t really slowed down the rate criminals can obtain firearms. In Portland, Maine, firearm ownership among the law abiding is pretty common. Another difference is the violent crime rate. High in LA, low in Portland. Chief Craig’s advice for reducing crime in Detroit (which approaches Robocop levels), is more firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens. Here is one of multiple studies that back Chief Craig’s advice.
San Francisco is pretty diverse, it even has pro-Second Amendment liberal democrats. These folks are pretty far left wackos despite this one gleam of sanity in the world view. Hell, they don’t like our Dear Leader because he’s “too conservative” in their view. Probably upset he hasn’t rounded up Republicans and shipped them off to
death re-education camps yet.
Here is a question that many law abiding citizens who have actually read the Constitution ask themselves, “My next AR, build or buy?”
Can’t leave the epic Charlie Fox known as Obamacare off the list. “Glitches” in the bloody website are still rampant, leaving many without coverage. Keep in mind, that in the time it took the Obama administration to build a really crappy website, America build almost 100 aircraft carriers during WWII. Plus the aircraft for the carriers, and the support vessels, and trained the crews.
For your reference when dealing with moonbats and Obama cultists, 8 Things Liberals Do to Avoid Having an Honest Debate.
Let’s wrap up with a look at how the Obama Economy is working for America. “34%: The unemployment rate for Americans ages 16-17. The unemployment rate for teenage Hispanic Americans is 48%, and the rate for teenage Black Americans is 60%.” Ya, just how is that hopey-changey thing workin’ for ya?

Chicago, IL. Political birthplace of our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, and under strict democrat rule for decades.
Also home to some of the most draconian “gun control” laws in the country.
This type of violent crime is all too common in places where leftists get their way on disarming law abiding citizens.
“25 states allow anyone to buy a gun, strap it on, and walk down the street with no permit of any kind: some says it’s crazy. However, four out of five US murders are committed in the other half of the country: So who’s crazy?”
— Andrew Ford
“ I’ve come to realize after the Sandy Hook shooting that the reason we can’t have a rational gun debate is because the anti-gun side pre-supposes that their pro-gun opponents must first accept that guns are bad in order to have a discussion about guns in the first place. Before we even start the conversation, we’re the bad guys and we have to admit it. Without accepting that guns are bad and supplicating themselves to the anti-gunner, the pro-gunner can’t get a word in edgewise, and is quickly reduced to being called a murderer, or a low, immoral and horrible human being. You might think that’s hyperbole too, but I’ve experienced it personally from people I considered friends until recently. . . . How can we ‘gun people’ honestly be expected to come to the table with anti-gunners when anti-gunners are willfully stupid about guns, and openly hate, despise and ridicule those of us who own them? There must first be respect and trust — even just a little — before there can be even the beginnings of legitimate discussion of the issue.”
HT to Mr Reynolds, who points out, “As with most lefty causes, the key driver is a craving for moral superiority, usually driven by oikophobia.”
