...make the sale of ammunition “safer for law-abiding Americans who are sick and tired of the ease with which criminals can now anonymously stockpile for mass murderBoth use every high profile shooting to push their agenda. Neither will be satisfied until our Second Amendment rights are nonexistent.
As usual call your Senators and Representatives and let them know where you stand on the matter. It may be that when introduced this bill will die in committee without ever seeing the floor of either the House or Senate but those untrustworthy gits need to be reminded constantly we are out here and we vote.
H/T to Jeff.

U.N. member states have failed to reach agreement on a new treaty to regulate the multibillion dollar global arms trade.
Some diplomats and treaty supporters blamed the United States for triggering the unraveling of the month-long negotiating conference.
Hopes had been raised that agreement could be reached on a revised treaty text that closed some key loopholes by Friday's deadline for action. But the United States announced Friday morning that it needed more time to consider the proposed treaty -- and Russia and China then also asked for more time.
“Maybe we could come together on guns if each side gave some,” Schumer said.No. Even if we had the slightest inclination to deal away our rights, we wouldn't do it with an untrustworthy son of a bitch like you who defines "compromise " as we give and you take. The only thing we can trust you and your dishonest bunch of fellow travelers to do is push your agenda each and every time you think the blood of innocents will get you the support you need. Pound sand you useless bastard.
Call your Senators and tell them to vote against this amendment.

I don‘t understand why the police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re gonna go on strike, we’re not gonna protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe.Fortunately, I think most police officers have a greater sense of duty than you do Mayor Mikey. Also, and this is not intended as a knock on the police, but I don't see where they protect me from much at all. In most cases the police arrive after the fact, determine what happened, and begin the process of assigning blame. Not always but most of the time. I suspect I'm not alone in that opinion.

HULU has the subtitled episodes for free [no telling how long that will last].
A man shot and killed his son.
In training, I was taught don't have the weapon so close while you sleep that you aren't awake before you can pick it up. That's part of making sure of your target. That's part of rule #2.
My prayers go to the father and his family.
Update: A name redacted.

I lost my Dad in March of 1981. Two "youths" beat him to death with a tire jack for about three hundred dollars. My Dad carried a little piece of shit Bauer .25 most of the time. He forgot it that day. He had called and asked me to bring it to him. I dicked around and by the time I got to this workplace he had gone out on his route. I never saw him again. I will carry that guilt with me 'til I'm with my father again. I carry now. Always. Unless its in a place where I can't hide the fact that I am, i.e. any place I have to enter through a metal detector. I carried before CCW was a possibility in my state and will when they take it away. My children will not carry the guilt I do. And if the time comes I shall not go quietly. To you out there, I have this to say. If you can get a CCW permit and carry do. If you can't, carry anyway. If you do it wisely and properly no one will ever know. If you ever need it then the fact that you were carrying concealed is the least of your worries. All that matters is you go home at the end of the day.

"You know, my daughters go to the movies. What if Malia and Sasha had been at the theater, as so many of our kids do every day?"The answer to my question is, fortunately, no. The answer to Obama's question is here.

Found it over at Theo's. It links to an article over at Forbes you might find interesting. Call, write, or email your Senators and tell them to oppose the sovereignty killing treaties the Democrats are trying to ram down our throats. Do it now.

GRNC Alert 7-12-12: GRNC Targets WRAL-TV Over CHP List
Wayne LaPierre, the CEO of the powerful lobby group, said 58 senators have pledged to oppose the treaty if it covers civilian weapons, fearing an infringement of America’s gun rights.Now the question is whether the 58 Senators will keep their word.
“I am here to announce NRA's strong opposition to anti-freedom policies that disregard American citizens' right to self-defense. No foreign influence has jurisdiction over the freedoms our Founding Fathers guaranteed to us,” LaPierre said at the UN Arms Trade Treaty Conference in New York.
“The only way to address NRA's objections is to simply and completely remove civilian firearms from the scope of the treaty. That is the only solution. On that, there will be no compromise.”

Police: Hug triggers officer's gun, kills womanThe story doesn't offer enough information to even develop a viable theory. Shoulder holster? when she hugged something caught the trigger? Strange.
Update: It was a soft waist holster. Still more questions than answers.
Update: She was on her knees "dirty dancing" when she hugged him. That would explain the chest wound.

Me? I've never noticed that the UN had the slightest concern for mine or anybody else's Liberty or rights. I've already send letters to my Senators telling them to vote no on this "treaty".
Update: Dick Morris on the subject.

As much I don't want anyone to lose their life, I'd much rather the "justifiable" rate rise than the opposite.
