Let me get this straight—I can’t be trusted with a semi-auto rifle, but these clowns can? Please.
Washington Examiner Why isn’t gun control working in Chicago?
CBS 6-Year-Old Expelled for Bringing Toy Gun to School
If you really want gun rights advocates to take any proposed legislation seriously, you’re going to have to end this nonsense. The girl has since been allowed back in school, but every person in the original decision-making chain should be fired.

Michelle Malkin Rotten to the Core: Obama’s War on Academic Standards (Part 1)
As a mathematician who has taught at the university level I’m appalled by the deliberate weakening of our standards—they weren’t all that high “back in the day.” As the parent of high school students I can attest that it’s happening. This is not going to help us catch other advanced nations in math and science—it’s putting us farther behind.

Michael Brown My Response to Your Inaugural Speech, Mr. President
Judge Andrew Napolitano Guns and the President
A Central Michigan University senior was abducted at gunpoint from a school parking lot, driven to a remote location, and raped. She was “lucky” because even partially bound and with a broken arm, she was able to escape when her rapist moved her again. Hint: he wasn’t taking her in to get medical treatment.
The hard truth is that the anti-gun crowd doesn’t care. This happened in a “gun-free zone” or as the rapist—an ex-con who likely couldn’t legally own the gun he was carrying—would have called it had he survived (he was later killed by police…with guns) a “victim-rich environment.” The Left wants to keep it that way even though time and again we see that “gun-free” zones aren’t, and the police can’t protect you everywhere. They would rather (and will) have more women raped and killed than let them carry handguns on campus.
Please tell me again how denying this poor young woman the ability to defend herself stopped her rapist from perpetrating his heinous act. Until then your gun “control” blather is just that.

Funny…they didn’t mention global warming at all.
A tourist from Massachusetts was beaten nearly to death by seven thugs outside a NYC pizza shop.
The attackers had crowbars and bats. The victim? His hands. Nannies Bloomberg and Cuomo don’t believe you have a legitimate need for a firearm for self-defense. Really? What was he supposed to use?
How exactly would you defend yourself in this scenario, Mayor Bloomberg? Oh, that’s right…you’re surrounded by bodyguards with guns!
Also of note, the Left doesn’t think you need magazines bigger than seven rounds. Well in this case, even a 10-round mag may not have been enough (which is why I carry at least two). When young men are amped up to fight, it often takes more than 1-2 bullet strikes to halt the attack.
Remember this incident the next time you see Obama or another of his Leftist allies grandstanding about how you don’t need more than ten rounds to hunt deer.
They don’t care a whit for your safety.
Fourteen Nordstrom employees were held hostage—one stabbed, and another sexually assaulted—last week in L.A.
This being (a) a mall, and (b) California—a “gun-free zone” and an anti-gun state—the employees were helpless onlookers while one of them was raped.
Passing more gun “control” laws wouldn’t have protected that poor woman. Putting a gun in her hand could have. When will the Left get it? Criminals don’t obey gun laws…they’re odd that way.

Don’t expect this to be the last. The nice thing about being liberal is not concerning yourself with the consequences of your actions…as long as “your intentions were good.”
