Number Of U.S. Gun Makers Refusing Sales To Gov’t In ‘Firearms Equality Movement’ Triples In Two Weeks

On February 22, “Right Views” reported that a growing number of firearm companies have suspended the sale of guns to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them.

In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the “Firearms Equality Movement,” has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118.

The Police Loophole lists every company and links to the statements that each has released regarding their new policies.

Wilson Combat, a custom pistol manufacturer located in Berryville, Arkansas, joined the movement on February 28 stating the following:

“Wilson Combat will no longer provide any products or services to any State Government imposing legislation that infringes on the second amendment rights of its law abiding citizens. This includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity or Employee of such an entity. This also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements.”

Wilson lists the states included on its no sale policy as: California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington D.C. and The City of Chicago, Illinois.

The statement also reads:

“Wilson Combat will in NO way support the government of these states or their anti-gun agenda that only limits the rights of law-abiding citizens. Wilson Combat will continue to supply any product and/or service they can legally sell in these states to all non-government affiliated citizens.”

‘Grinch Gang’ Ransacking Well-To-Do Westchester County Towns

Someone’s dropping by Westchester County homes this holiday season, and it isn’t Santa.

Police say smash-and-grab break-ins are on the rise, CBS 2’s Lou Young reported Thursday.

You can call them the “Grinch Gang.” They are loose in the tony northern suburbs this season. They struck near one house on a golf course by smashing through the back door and ignoring the burglar alarm. The damage was still evident, CBS 2’s Young reported. Scarsdale cops said they’ve identified a pattern.

“They’re breaking in by force. They’re in and out fairly quickly. We haven’t been able to get latent prints, so were testing for DNA. They’re probably pros,” Scarsdale Police Lt. Thomas Altizio said.

The targets are always near one of the parkways and the thieves inevitably grab expensive jewelry from the master bedroom, although they’re not above grabbing a stray holiday package, police said.

The break-ins apparently happen in pairs, within close proximity to one another. One house was hit last Friday, not far from the golf course house mentioned earlier, with the same m-o — smashing the back door, grabbing the jewelry all the while the alarm was sounding.

In one case, victims arriving home were warned of the danger by their own alarm system.

“They walked in the house and they heard the alarm sounding in the house and they realized someone was in the house and they left. We called the alarm company and asked what we can do to protect ourselves,” neighbor Daisy Godoy said.

Obama Takes Credit For Letting New Yorkers Starve And Suffer

President Obama, touring parts of New York City slammed by Hurricane Sandy, was chided by a girl for ignoring the disaster.

As the president waded through a supply center, a girl who was waiting for goods told a reporter, “We need help–he should of been here a long time ago,” according to the White House pool report.

Obama has received little criticism for the federal government’s handling of the disaster which is still crippling areas of New York where many families remain homeless or without power.

Now many states want to secede from U.S.

Since WND first reported that residents in the state of Louisiana were petitioning to secede from the U.S., residents in over 20 more states have filed requests with the White House to peaceably break from the union.

Furthermore, the Louisiana petition has topped 14,000 signatures, more than halfway to the threshold needed after which the White House has pledged to respond.

And for Texas, one of the new states to join the fray, the signature count now tops 25,000.

The White House’s We the People website explains that once a petition reaches 25,000 signatures, it will be placed on a queue for response from the administration. The website also maintains a page for previous petitions that have received a White House response.

Joining Louisiana now are Arizona, Oklahoma, Arkansas, South Carolina, Georgia, Missouri, Tennessee, Michigan, New York, Colorado, Oregon, New Jersey, North Dakota, Montana, Indiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama and Texas.

The Louisiana petition, which has served as a pattern for many of the new states, reads as follows: “We petition the Obama administration to: Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.”

It continues, “As the Founding Fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776: ‘When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.’”

The petition concludes with a further quote from the Declaration of Independence: “‘Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government.’”

Fleeing taxation

Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, California, New York … all of these states have one thing in common: They have high taxes that are driving out residents. The latest example is New York.

Between 2000 and 2010, New York claims that prize for the state that saw the biggest exodus of any state in the nation. During that decade, 3.4 million residents left New York. When considering the amount of folks who migrated to New York, it works out to be about a 1.3 million net loss in New York residents.

When people migrate, so does their money. The loss of these residents also represents a net tax loss of $45.6 billion.

Where are these New Yorkers fleeing? More than 600,000 of them moved to … Florida! The liberal excuse is that it is because of the weather. But then the proggies can’t explain why California (with a wonderful climate) is hemorrhaging people. One of the predominant realistic explanations is taxes. Florida doesn’t have a state income tax. It also doesn’t impose an estate tax. Where do I live? Florida.

Over a similar time period (1998 to 2007), “more than 1,100 people every day including Sundays and holidays moved from the nine highest income-tax states such as California, New Jersey, New York and Ohio and relocated mostly to the nine tax-haven states with no income tax, including Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire and Texas.”

There’s a message here for politicians, but they’re too hungry for power, and eager to buy the votes that preserve that power, to listen.

Gay marriage in New York state approved

By a vote of 33-29, the New York senate passed a measure legalizing gay marriage in the state.

New York Post:

Senators passed the bill 33 to 29 as the normally somnolent chambers erupted in a raucous chant of “USA! USA!”

“As I have said many times, this is a very difficult issue and it will be a vote of conscience for every member of the Senate,” said GOP Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R-Nassau).

New York joined Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Iowa and Washington, D.C., in legally recognizing gay marriage.

“I’m verklempt,” said a nervously optimistic Assemblyman Matthew Titone (D-S.I), one of five openly gay state lawmakers prior to the vote. “I’m still in a state of disbelief.”

The Assembly passed the bill last week for the fourth time since 2007.

The argument that it is unfair for some states to allow gay marriage while others don’t will soon be featured before the Supreme Court. That is, unless congress passes a national gay marriage measurei itself. With DOMA being challenged, and the prospects for an anti-gay marriage amendment to the constitution be slim, it appears that the bare majority of Americans who support gay marriage will eventually get their way.

Obama senses the danger in supporting gay marriage to his re-election chances. His support has been “evolving” he says, and his tepid support for the New York bill came late. Gay marriage opponents vote – a reality that even Obama must remain cognizant. And among African Americans, there is overwhelming disapproval of the concept.

If Obama is re-elected, no doubt his “evolving” position on gay marriage will be complete and he will wholeheartedly back it.

ObamaCare Waivers for All

In his latest effort to get his feet out of the RomneyCare quicksand, Mitt Romney recently wrote that if he were President he “would issue an executive order paving the way for ObamaCare waivers to all 50 states.”

Sounds good so far, but what if more of those “laboratories of democracy,” jumped out of the kettle into the fire, converting to a state-run single payer system.

As the number of waivers reached 1,040, New York’s Rep. Anthony Weiner upped the ante by saying he is “looking into how a health law waiver might work for New York City.”

Mr. Weiner, who is said to be a likely candidate for Mayor of New York in 2013, recently chided his fellow Democrats to “ditch the ‘hiding-under-our-desk’ strategy and embrace the health care law in 2012 — because it will be a campaign issue whether they like it or not.”

The same Anthony Weiner was a leading champion of single-payer health care during the months of debate among Democrats over the shape of the health care bill.

Weiner’s own web site includes a July 2009 press release:

Single-payer is a better plan and now it is on center stage. Americans have a clear choice. Their Member of Congress will have a simpler, less expensive and smarter bill to choose. I am thrilled that the Speaker is giving us that choice.

So it would appear that a Weiner waiver request may be less to seek relief from onerous obligations, but rather to impose an even more onerous system on the city of New York.

While Weiner and other liberals keep flogging their holy grail, Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson reflects on the health care law’s paper anniversary,” in the Wall Street Journal:

Some years ago, a little girl was born with a serious heart defect: Her aorta and pulmonary artery were reversed. Without immediate intervention, she would not have survived.

The infant was rushed to another hospital where a surgeon performed a procedure at 1 a.m. that saved her life. Eight months later, when her heart was the size of a small plum, an incredibly dedicated and skilled team of medical professionals surgically reconstructed it. Twenty-seven years later, the young woman is now a nurse in a neonatal intensive care unit where she is studying to become a nurse practitioner.

She wasn’t saved by a bureaucrat, and no government mandate forced her parents to purchase the coverage that saved her. Instead, her care was provided under a run-of-the-mill plan available to every employee of an Oshkosh, Wis., plastics plant.

If you haven’t guessed, this story touches my heart because the girl is my daughter, Carey…

…I don’t even want to think what might have happened if she had been born at a time and place where government defined the limits for most insurance policies and set precedents on what would be covered.

No doubt the Democrats are still privately laughing up their sleeves at their success in passing the bill, but as Mr. Weiner aptly notes, the health care law will be on the front burner come 2012.

Even with a Republican President, however, a recalcitrant Senate may block full repeal, leaving Romney’s “executive order” as one possible course of action to return control to the states.

But with the Anthony Weiners of the world still seeking single-payer utopia, be careful what you wish for.

Does New York Have Any Heroes?

Dutifully taking its orders from Mayor Mike Bloomberg, the New York City Council voted to rename the Queensboro Bridge the Edward Koch Bridge after a hero cop who lost his life in the World Trade Center on 9/11. No. That’s not right. Ed Koch was a fireman who gave his life to save others in a Bronx fire. No. That’s not right either.

Koch must have been some kind of hero. Maybe he jumped onto subway tracks to save the life of a baby. No. That’s not right either. Koch? Koch? Wasn’t he a politician? A congressman and then a mayor?

Too bad New York City doesn’t have any heroes who gave their lives to save the lives of others?

If it did, politician Bloomberg wouldn’t have to name a bridge after another politician. Bloomberg apparently thinks that politicians are the crown of creation and that a politician who merely does his job is worthy of monuments and hosannahs.

If anyone has the name of even one such New York City hero, perhaps you could share it with Mayor Bloomberg.
