News of Import 4-17-2013
In order to know what we are fighting for, let’s talk about the story that is not a story according, to the Main Stream Media’s Dr. Kermit Gosnell. I have avoided talking about this particular nasty horror story until I got more details, and now that I have, below is the story liberals want to bury. Of interest to me is that the MSM is absent in reporting about an abortionist doctor who cut the spinal cords of live birthed babies who survived late term (30 week) abortion attempts, but is all too happy to label the Boston Marathon bombing "Right Wing" or “Tea Party.” Let’s not forget the open lying and slandering of the gun debate.
blunt, I know evil is out there, but I prefer to not talk about it unless the
need is there. This is a fight for our country, the soul of who we are as a
people, and if a small portion of the people who think killing live infants is
acceptable and the rest of the population does not say anything, what does that
say about us?
It’s natural to think that some of the lack of interest stems from the gruesomeness of the details. Gosnell’s “practice” was so grisly that some people might wish to turn away and ignore the nightmare. But unpalatable images and facts don’t stop the media from reporting on the horrors of famine-stricken North Korea, even though there are almost no pictures available. It seems undeniable, then, that abortion politics played a role in the blackout. When Mullane asked a member of the court’s staff why there was so little media interest, the man pointed to the filthy medical equipment set up in the courtroom as an exhibit and asked, “If you’re pro-choice, do you really want anybody to know about this?
It’s sad that it took a liberal such as [Kirsten] Powers to shame so many journos into waking up and doing their jobs. The blunt truth is that if a conservative had written her piece, the response would have been far more muted — or journalists would have attacked the messenger.

Arizona: Two Pro-Gun Bills Pass in Legislature and Go to Governor
Today, the Arizona Senate approved two pro-gun bills. House Bill 2455 passed by a 18-12 vote and would prohibit government-sponsored destruction of seized or surrendered firearms. Introduced by state Representative Brenda Barton (R-6), HB 2455 passed in the House of Representatives by a 36 to 23 vote on March 7.
The Arizona Senate also approved House Bill 2326 by 19-11 vote. Sponsored by state Representative Eddie Farnsworth (R-12), HB 2326 would provide meaningful privacy protections for firearm owners, and passed in the Arizona House by a 46 to 13 vote on March 7. Both of these bills are eligible for Governor Jan Brewer’s signature.
HB 2455 would require any firearms forfeited to or confiscated by a law enforcement agency to be sold to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder in exchange for money, new equipment or ammunition. As a result, previously owned firearms that are collected would maintain their value and their sale to the public would help recover public funds when budgets are strained.
HB 2326 would restrict the ability of any political subdivision from requiring or retaining a record in any form, whether permanent or temporary, of any identifying information of a person who owns, possesses, purchases, sells or transfers a firearm. In other parts of the country, anti-gun media outlets have abused their privileges under the Freedom of Information Act and have jeopardized the safety of law-abiding citizens by publishing the names and addresses of registered gun owners. Contrary to their claims, these media elites have not increased public safety and have instead simply provided a map for criminals to use for their next burglary and firearm theft. HB 2326 would prevent this from happening in Arizona.

Manchin-Toomey Amendment orchestrates gun registration, read
1. Registering 100 million Americans is extremely expensive — and omits the criminals and crazies.
2. Americans who fail to register property they already own would become felons without committing a crime.
3. Registration, if enacted, will create an underground market for unregistered guns bigger than the drug trade.
The Schumer-Manchin-Toomey amendment contains a variety of gun control measures that would restrict your Second Amendment freedoms. This amendment would make it illegal for honest citizens to sell firearms within their local communities if they use social media, local community emails lists, or community newspapers to advertise the sale - unless they get advance permission from the federal government.
Senate Gun Control Bill Erodes Your Rights and Privacy
Press Release of Senator Cruz
U.S. Sens. Lee, Paul, Cruz: Senate to Vote on Gun Bill No One Has Read
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) released the following statement regarding the pending vote on the motion to proceed to new gun control legislation:
This morning the Senate will vote on the motion to proceed to the firearms bill (S.649). It is expected that the Toomey-Manchin provision announced yesterday will replace the current language regarding background checks. Yet, as of this morning, not a single senator has been provided the legislative language of this provision. Because the background-check measure is the centerpiece of this legislation it is critical that we know what is in the bill before we vote on it. The American people expect more and deserve better.
Unfortunately, the effort to push through legislation that no one had read highlights one of the primary reasons we announced our intention to force a 60 vote threshold. We believe the abuse of the process is how the rights of Americans are systematically eroded and we will continue to do everything in our power to prevent it.

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all." --Ronald Reagan

"By calling attention to 'a well-regulated militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy
