Police Departments considering how to confiscate weapons In event of ban

December 22, 2012

Welcome to Amerika! h/t Free Republic

Amid talk of reinstating the assault weapons ban that expired eight years ago, police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.

As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, among the departments considering taking action is the NYPD. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said if Congress were to reinstate the ban, police are wondering whether it will be their responsibility to confiscate them.

  2. Harry White says:

    A bounty program where you can inform on those who are hiding illegal firearms will be very effective as well.

    • Ragspierre says:

      For this evil, Collectivist, totalitarian puke, 1984 is a “how-to” manual.

    • William Hodges says:

      Harry, I sincerely hope you soon find yourself in a desperate situation whereas you wish an armed samaritan was available to save your worthless existence from a slow and extremely painful experience, only to realise it is not possible because intellectually defunct individuals like yourself advocated against the Second Amendment.

  3. Ragspierre says:


    ONE reason it can’t work.

    Other reasons…??? How did Prohibition work out…???

    • Fred Beloit says:

      You know, Rags, it’s hard for taxpayers to be merry when the President is Santa Claus, but anyway merry Christmas to you.

  4. Fred Beloit says:

    Hairy White, try the wax treatment. I hear it is the best.

  5. Neo says:

    Since any “ban” would be under the umbrella of the Commerce Clause, it would only ban the production and sale. Only states have the power, under the Constitution to “ban” possession.

    • Zelsdorf Ragshaft III says:

      Is there some part of the 1oth Amendment you do not understand? A civil right cannot be trumped by State law. The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Bill of Rights, second amendment. Cannot be overturned, modified or amended. It is not about hunting it is about throwing off the tyrant. Like Obama.

  6. Senator Mike Crapo says:

    I need booze and tranny hookers.

    Thank you Mormon Jesus!

    • Ragspierre says:

      Really, troll…?

      Liar. What a pig.

      btw, how many young women died in his car, left to drown while he went about saving his political career…NOT his life…his political career?

      • Harry White says:

        So true. I forgot about that demented highway killer, Laura Bush. She got drunk, got her keys and got even.

        RIP Michael Douglas. Laura will burn.

        • Ragspierre says:

          Proving, yet again, there is no lie a Collectivist moron will not tell.


          • Harry White says:

            I wonder how many more that wild eyed crazy woman has killed over the years. That grinning alcoholic she married must live in fear of her.

          • Ragspierre says:

            What other demented fantasies you indulge in that hate-twisted thing you call a “mind”…that would be a dark inquiry, indeed.


  7. Patriot says:

    Meanwhile, another Real American exercises his second amendment right to do what he loved to do most – kill people. This time fascist firefighter thugs (who were probably in a union).


    If only firefighters carried Bushmasters! This never would have happened!

    More guns = more polite society, right Fragspierre?

    • Ragspierre says:

      I think I see your root problem…

      your hate, see, has so twisted your “mind” that you cannot discern between a civil right and an act of criminality.

      Poor, stupid, irrational, lying POS Collectivist. Again, in true cargo-cult level superstition, confusing the deed with the instrument.

      Are you aware, moron, more people kill with knives in the US than with rifles?

      Ohhhh….hahaahahahh… I used “aware” when addressing a moron…!!!

      • Patriot says:

        “Poor, stupid, irrational, lying POS Collectivist. Again, in true cargo-cult level superstition, confusing the deed with the instrument.”

        Yes, you’re right. It would have been so much easier for your hero to ambush and kill these fascist firemen with a baseball bat.

        “Are you aware, moron, more people kill with knives in the US than with rifles?”

        I’m aware that you are lying as usual, this time by a magnitude of about 8 to 1. But I’m sure you’ll cite a non-primary opinion piece “proving” you not a liar. And I’ll cite DOJ stats which you will claim are collectivist lies.

      • Patriot says:

        Isn’t it true, Fragspierre, that the firefighters your hero killed were fascist thugs because they were more than likely, in a union? Accordingly, isn’t it true that your hero was duty-bound to dispatch said fascists by using his second amendment remedies you Real Americans are so fond of?

        • Ragspierre says:

          Wow. Whatever dementia you suffer from must be aggravated by blinking Christmas lights or rich food, because you are more embarrassingly crazy than “normal”…!!!!

    • Ragspierre says:

      Let’s have some fun, since you appear off your meds (as kind of…you know…usual).

      This was a felon. He served only 17 years for beating his grandmother to death with a hammer. Blue state.

      New York has strict gun control laws. Blue state. (How’d those prevent this…???)

      He killed (apparently) his older sister at some point before the fire.

      He set a fire, apparently with the exact purpose of getting people to come to him to be killed.

      The volunteer firefighters were not at all likely “union”.

      This monster was more likely YOUR hero than mine…or one of your pet victims.

      He was stopped by someone returning fire with a gun.

      When seconds counted…it still took minutes for first responders to arrive.

      Contrary to the press hyperventilation, it is NOT all that unusual for firefighters to be attacked when they roll up on an emergency. Look it up, stupid.


      I never lie. You do pretty much always.

      I never expect you to apologize.

      I just expect you to STFU when you are punked like this.

      But I know you can’t…

      • Patriot says:

        “New York has strict gun control laws. Blue state. (How’d those prevent this…???)”

        Gee, do you think that the nature of interstate arms traffic might necessitate a federal action, dip shit?

        “He was stopped by someone returning fire with a gun.”

        Yeah, a police officer fuck wit.

        “Contrary to the press hyperventilation, it is NOT all that unusual for firefighters to be attacked when they roll up on an emergency.”

        Yeah, genius, the prevalence of gun violence upon firefighters TOTALLY supports your position that we should have more guns on the street.

        “I never lie.”

        And we’re still waiting on those rock solid stats about stabbings outnumbering deaths by firearms.

        “You do pretty much always.”

        And, yet you can never demonstrate this.

        “I never expect you to apologize.”

        Ah, what it ALWAYS comes down to – your butthurt.

        “I just expect you to STFU when you are punked like this.”

        Yes, all that “punking” you do – sound and furious tears signifying nothing. And, Fragspierre, we will never stop pointing and laughing at you, loser. So get used to it.

        • Ragspierre says:

          Gee, do you think that the nature of interstate arms traffic might necessitate a federal action, dip shit?

          Oh, geee… THAT has never been tried…

          But, wait…IT HAS BEEN TRIED…!!! And every place it is tried, like all Collectivist magic thinking…IT DOES NOT WORK…!!! What a deal…!

        • Ragspierre says:

          “He was stopped by someone returning fire with a gun.”

          Yeah, a police officer…

          Right, because we all know they have special super powers that mere citizens do not…

          EXCEPT…they just don’t. More magic Collectivist “thinking”. Remember the two NYC police officers who shot the hell out of the civilians on the street a few weeks back, moron…???

        • Ragspierre says:

          Yeah, genius, the prevalence of gun violence upon firefighters TOTALLY supports your position that we should have more guns on the street.

          Another red herring out of your school. I never implied that, idiot.

        • Ragspierre says:

          And we’re still waiting on those rock solid stats about stabbings outnumbering deaths by firearms.

          Here you lie AGAIN. Read what I said, you imbecile.

          Then, read the stats from the FBI at the link.


        • Ragspierre says:

          And, again, as so often before…

          you just HAVE to come and get punked some more.

          What a SOS, even for a Collectivist totalitarian pig.

      • dieter says:

        excellant comment!

    • Ragspierre says:

      There are…of course…MANY Federal (that means nation-wide Parrotrot) gun control laws on the books right now.

      How are those working out…??? I mean, except to hinder the law-abiding…

    • Harry White says:

      Every time I read about a hunting accident I laugh.

      • Ragspierre says:

        And I imagine you guffaw at hiway fatalities, too.

        What a sick, twisted lot is the Collective.

      • Zelsdorf Ragshaft III says:

        You are one sick SOB Harry. Hope I see you when I am out hunting. Just one more accident.

    • Rob Crawford says:

      Why did you bleeding-brain leftists let the guy out of prison?

      Conservative policies would have had him put down like a rabid dog, never to have the chance to hurt anyone ever again.

  8. Ragspierre says:



    So much for that lying narrative…


    Some more.

  9. Concerned says:

    When are the House Teahadists going to come back and do their jobs? Strike that; it’s better that those terrorists stay among their hillbilly constituents.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Typically stupid, low-information Collectivist.

      The House passed the Ryan Plan months and months ago.

      It is in Dirty, Filthy Harry’s court now.

      • Tex Detroit says:

        That’s a good point. I remember that Team Ryan won a resounding 350 point electoral victory in November, taking FL, OH, PA, WI, MI, and VA.

  10. HempRopeAndStreetlight says:

    Looks like the libs are getting froggy.

    Pass the bill. Do it. I’d love nothing better than to watch you shove too far. If you just keep boiling the frogs slowly you’ll win in 30 or 50 more years.

    But I am willing to bet you moonbats can’t contain yourselves. Perfect. I beg you… please push too far too fast. Please.

    Pass Feinstien’s bill. Do it.

    Sleep well.

  11. The Gundertaker says:

    From my experience with the firearms community, the easy way to succeed in confiscating all weapons is to go from house to house with a can of beer, and offer it to the gun nut in exchange for his .50 caliber machine gun, along with all of his other guns.
    Take the membership list from the National Machinegun Association, Artillery News, and Gun Fetishers of America, and go down thru the list.
    Gun nuts can’t resist booze; my father had a lot of guns, and was for a time an NRA member until he went back to a gun club he helped found some years earlier, and found everyone drunk, waving their .44 magnums around.
    He died over the summer, and after an absence from the gun community for several years, I inherited his guns and got back into the community, to see if anyone in the community was sane.
    Nope. I attended several gunshows in PA and MD, and saw that the inmates were running the asylum. I surrendered all of Dad’s firearms to the local police, along with the ammo, books, magazines, and such.
    Total repeal of the 2nd Amendment is doable, and needed. Just bring a can of beer.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Ohh, ho, ho, ho…

      I love it when lying moonbats do “creative” writing like this.

      You get to see them at their condescending, lying, hateful worst!

      It really does nicely show off what they think of others.

      Kind of like the “drag a $100 bill through a trailer park” line.

      Which, it should be remembered, was actually spoken. As opposed to “let them eat cake” which never was.

  12. Ragspierre says:

    “Gun deaths and injuries have dropped sharply in California, even as the number of guns sold in the state has risen, according to new state data.”


    That Fox Butterfield sure gets around…

    • Tex Detroit says:

      Just for fun, who said the following?:

      “This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety … While we recognize that assault-weapon legislation will not stop all assault-weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals.”

      “I do not believe in taking away the right of the citizen for sporting, for hunting and so forth, or for home defense. But I do believe that an AK-47, a machine gun, is not a sporting weapon or needed for defense of a home.”

      “Certain forms of ammunition have no legitimate sporting, recreational, or self-defense use and thus should be prohibited.”

      “With the right to bear arms comes a great responsibility to use caution and common sense on handgun purchases.”

      • Ragspierre says:

        Just for fun…

        So the FLUCK what…???

        Ronnie could be wrong, just like all other human beings.

        And no legal gun owner has an AK-47 unless they have a tax stamp for it.


        • Tex Detroit says:

          Yet, strangely, you worship St. Ronnie as an Adonis (in a totally heterosexual way, of course), while screaming about Obama being an Islamo-Kenyan-Socialist-Fascist who is worse than Hilter – in instances in which their policies are either similar, OR Obama is to the right of St. Ronnie.

          But no one ever accused you of being honest.

          • Ragspierre says:


            A strange year-end foray into complete insanity…!!!

            I guess we all have our ways of ringing out the old year. Your is a laugh riot of obvious lies…!!!

            Hard, really, to see the difference from your “normal” day, except in volume and extremity.

      • Ragspierre says:

        Compare and contrast Ronnie being flat out wrong with Barrackah flat out lying…

        “I, I, just want to be absolutely clear, all right? So I don’t want any misunderstanding, when, when y’all go home and you’re talkin’ to your buddies, and they say, “Aww, he wants to take my gun away.” You’ve heard it here; I’m on television, so everybody knows it. I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in peoples’ lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away… But I am not going to take your guns away. So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one because it just ain’t true. It ain’t true.”

        Just for fun…

        • Tex Detroit says:

          How is that a “lie,” professor?

          And it’s further amusing that St. Ronnie and all of your wingnut heroes can be simply “wrong” when they stand for X, only to flip-flop to Y, but again, the Kenyan is worse than Hitler for holding the same X position.

          But you’re right – just like the rest of your deranged ideology, teaching 6 year olds to bum rush an assailant armed to the teeth is a winning position for you.

          • Ragspierre says:

            See, you really need to get to a mental health care provider….STAT.

            Everything you just said is a delusional break with reality.

            Oh, and Ad Hominem Tu Quoque…which is a fallacy you morons seem very fond of…

          • Ragspierre says:

            “I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in peoples’ lawful right to bear arms.”

            That is a bald-faced lie.

            As are his statements that he supports ANY component of the Constitution, like the First Amendment. Or the Fourth.

            As anyone with an ounce of intellectual integrity knows.

            Hence, your question….

          • Rob Crawford says:

            It’s a lie because Barry spent years on the board of one of the most strident gun-grabber organizations around.

  13. Tea Party Teen says:

    *Real* Americans love the Ryan budget. The blahs who voted for the socialist don’t count, and frankly I dont believe they exist. I am the most conservative guy at my high school. Why isn’t Presidont Bohener demanding that the Senate pass the Ryan budget with no amendments as a PERMANENT fix to the fiscal cliff crisis? After all, to my knowledge, the Tea Party won the election in a walk. All of the kids I talk to in my high school all believe the same way I do.

  15. Ragspierre says:

    This last week saw the 500th death by gunfire in Chicago this year.

    Every individual was once a “…precious small child”.

    This Collective…and this Collectivist puke in particular…does not give a rat’s asp about individuals.

    They deliberately armed known killers in Mexico with the self-same weapons they now propose to try to take from people who will never use them offensively.

    Screw them.

  16. Ragspierre says:

    The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend — a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist — have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive in their Greenwich Village apartment.

    Morgan Gliedman — who is nine-months pregnant — and her baby daddy, Aaron Greene, 31, also had instructions on making bombs, including a stack of papers with a cover sheet titled, “The Terrorist Encyclopedia,’’ sources told The Post yesterday.

    People who know Greene say his political views are “extreme,” the sources said.

    TEA Party…???

  19. Ragspierre says:

    I wanted to come on and wish you all a very Happy New Year. After much soul searching Mom and I have decided to pick up and go off the grid starting today. The America that we love is gone and we will not contribute to its further downfall.

    The minivan is packed, mom is dressed and we are off to find Galt’s Gulch. In the meantime,we will be parked behind the Walmart. It’s safe and there’s a Taco Bell (mom loves chimichangas) across the street. We will check in periodically from the library downtown.

    God help us all.

          Fluck off, mom! I do NOT appreciate the diaper comments. I have a GROWING problem, not a GOING problem.

          • Ragspierre's Mom says:

            I’m sorry, everyone. Rags has been especially difficult since he started going through puberty at the age of 35. You can’t imagine the stench wafting from the basement at all hours. But at this point, Rags’ propensity to play in his own stool is still my biggest concern. His doctors hope he will stop being a shut-in and learn to take care of himself someday. But frankly, he’s always preferred to have all of his needs tended to by others. Does anyone know of a website that sells man-child diapers by the gross?

            I have to go; the banging noises from the basement are growing louder.

  20. Concerned says:

    Congrats, Real Americans, for helping the black fella pass the largest tax increase in decades. I remember when you idiots had the chance to put Senate Dems in the hot seat by passing President Boeher’s Plan B. Instead, you aborted Plan B, and capitulated to the president.

    And now we know that there are enough relatively sane House Republicans who can make a deal with House Dems. President Boehner no longer needs the nihilists in his own party to make a deal – if he wants.

    • Ragspierre says:


      TaxandSpendy goodness…

      Yes, yes…that has worked out so well in the past for Deemocrats.

      Trouble is, this time we may not have time for the American pendulum to swing back to sanity.

      And, you Collectivist morons, get your anal lube ready… Obama will put it to you good and hard…if you are productive.

        Why didn’t your Teahadist heroes in the House do something OTHER THAN capitulate to the Kenyan? Why didn’t they take President Boenher up on Plan B when they had the chance? Could it be that House Teahadists are even stupider than YOU?

            “Will the American people be better off if this law passes relative to the alternative? In the final analysis, the answer is undoubtedly yes.”

    People targeted by this tax increase will find ways to beat it. Just like they always do.

    ***And that’s about it. The Democrats have made the Bush tax rates permanent for 98 percent of the public, which Republicans couldn’t even do when they controlled both houses of Congress and the presidency.***

    SO I RAN THIS DEFICIT CHART YESTERDAY, pointing out that things were actually improving in Bush’s presidency until the election of a Democratic congress in 2007:

    And the Anchoress emailed:

    The deficit WAS being paid down in both 2005 and 2006, (yes, before the Pelosi congress came in, in 2007), and why?

    Because unemployment was low, people were working and that meant tax revenues were approaching record heights, and the deficit was being paid down.

    This is confirmed by none other than the “paper of record.”

    2005: “Sharp Rise in Tax Revenue to Pare U.S. Deficit.”
    2006: “Surprising Jump in Tax Revenues Is Curbing Deficit.”

    I reminded folks about this in 2010, when the Democrats and the NY Times seemed to have forgotten same.

    it can’t be reminded enough. 🙂


    You can find the purdy chart there…

  25. Ragspierre says:

    On Tuesday, California released a report that revealed state tax revenues have plummeted even further below Gov. Jerry Brown’s (D) estimates, even after residents voted to increase taxes via Proposition 30 in November’s elections.

    At the end of November, “taxes were 3% short in the fiscal year that started in July,” which is “a gap of $936 million.” The state was 0.7% short a month before.

      Also, thank you to all the patriots for their well wishes. Mom and I are still parked behind the Walmart. I can see society crumbling without us. Galts Gulch is near.

      The only learning moment that we have had recently is not to let mom eat too much Taco Bell. She really stinks up the minivan afterward.

        • Ragspierre's Mom says:

          Rags, honey, your internet friends probably have better things to do than respond to your stool smearings. If you want to be a lawyer some day, you should probably learn the difference between primary sources of information, and opinion pieces generated from other shut-ins. For instance, if you looked at the actual source material you pretend to analyze, you’ll see that Labor market conditions in CA have greatly improved in the same time period, and that other sources of tax revenue have greatly exceeded expectations. You should also learn cause and effect. In other words, Rags, honey, if you want to become a lawyer some day, you should learn how to factually connect the dots between an outcome and your argument for how that outcome came about.

          And, Rags, sweetie, can you please do something about the stench wafting up from the basement at all hours. I’m off to purchase more bleach to get the stains out of your sweat pants.

      • Harry White says:

        • Ragspierre's Mom says:

          Zandi, we only occasionally live in a minivan when the stench from the basement (where Rags’) “lives” becomes too unbearable, and we run out of bleach. I hope some day that Rags will learn to care for himself. And, yes, this includes wiping his bottom. That reminds me, I have to pick up some XXXL sweat pants for Rags at the Wal Mart when I pick up bleach.

    • Ragspierre's Mom says:

      Rags, sweetie, you shouldn’t start making arguments on the internet until you’ve consulted the chapter on the best evidence rule in the copy of “Lawyering for Stupid Bastards” that Dennis got you for Christmas. Otherwise, someone smart might come along and point out that neither the PJ, nor the Times piece cites the actual study you think is “proving” something.

        and for political reasons.


        • Ragspierre's Mom says:

          “Coumo is suppressing the study; hence, citing to it is made quite difficult–”

          Rags, honey, the PM piece says that the report was leaked to the NYT. Where’s the report, honey? What language in the report “proves that fracking is safe,” honey? You’ll have to be a little more diligent than this if you hope to get into law school some day. Maybe one of your internet friends can help explain to you how to support your arguments. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you don’t understand, sweetie.

          “BUT the point of the post is not what the study says in its jot and tittle, but that it IS being suppressed…”

          Rags, honey, the quoted portion you cite states that the report “proves fracking is safe.” Be careful who you call a “moron,” sweet heart. Someone smart might read your posts and point out your back-peddling and weasel-like nature.

          • Ragspierre says:

            According to the Times, and the New York Health Department…

            fracking can safely be done in New York.

            Which is consistent with findings in every state of the Union, and with Federal findings.

            Of course, fracking is safer than ever, while having a 60 year history over millions of wells, both here and abroad, of safety.

            Only the most stupid and anti-science of the Collectivist moron tribe believes the witchcraft of their shaman to the contrary.

  29. Ragspierre says:

    “Barack Obama benefits from a largely deferential liberal press in the United States which rarely questions his opulence in office. It would be unthinkable for the British prime minister to act in the same manner. If David Cameron flew off to Hawaii and billed the British public £5 million for his Christmas vacation, he would be out of a job.

    President Obama frequently calls on the American people to make sacrifices, but he is simply unwilling to lead by example and do so himself…

    …The president is elected to serve his country, rather than lord over it, a message which appears to be completely lost on the present White House. The federal government is simply running out of money, and America faces economic ruin unless spending is cut dramatically and the vast entitlements system is reformed. Barack Obama’s Hawaii vacation is merely a symbol of his wider presidency – a culture of impunity and extraordinary arrogance, reckless spending, a striking lack of accountability, and a shameless let them eat cake mentality. America’s middle class deserves to be treated better than this from a president who fails to practice what he preaches.” –Nile Gardiner

    But, hey, he doesn’t act like a tyrant…

    above the law and all…


  30. Ragspierre says:

    Health insurance companies across the country are seeking and winning double-digit increases in premiums for some customers, even though one of the biggest objectives of the Obama administration’s health care law was to stem the rapid rise in insurance costs for consumers.

      No, liar.

      What I said was that the jot and tittle of the report was not the issue.

      What WAS important…to anyone who cares about government transparency, sound science, and using what works, is that the governor of New York has suppressed the report…

      WHICH DOES say fracking is safe (duh!)…

  37. Ragspierre says:

    Tax increases on high-income people may be redistributive, but not always in the way intended. That is because we pay taxes individually in the short term, but in the long term we pay taxes collectively: Individuals and firms pass on tax costs to employers and consumers to whatever extent they can, just like any other cost. But the same factors that make any given worker a high-income wage-earner in the first place are likely to make that worker one who can most effectively pass on tax expenses. Likewise, the most profitable firms in many cases will be the ones that have the most power to pass on tax expenses to consumers or suppliers.


    Yep. Obama is an outlaw, but there are laws that are immutable and even he cannot break them.

    • Ragspierre says:

  38. Ragspierre says:

    No longer in our post-modern, post-industrial, metrosexual fantasyland. The nexus of big government, big money, and globalization has created a new creed of squaring the circle of being both liberal and yet elitist, egalitarian-talking but rich-acting, talking like a 99 percenter and living like a 1 percenter. And the rub is not that the two poles are contradictory, but that they are, in fact, necessary for each other: talking about the people means it is OK to live unlike the people.

    In short, we can all be just what we profess to be. The key in our world of blue-jeaned billionaires is being hip — or rather at least professing to be hip.

    But what is hip? Mostly it is a state of mind, a religion, a talk, a look, an outward persona that is the key that unlocks you from the ramifications of your ideology.


    Why, you can even DO exactly what you LIED about others doing, and get away with it…

    somebody’s idea of a bad, terrrrrrible, awful, dirty joke.

  48. Ragspierre says:

    Bottom line: The second-term cabinet shuffle has been an unforced error so far. (The reason why the White House is receiving criticism for a lack of diversity is that it has nominated three consecutive white men for cabinet posts — John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, and today Jack Lew — but without a high-profile woman or minority thrown into the mix. And that doesn’t include John Brennan at CIA and a likely white male to be the next White House chief of staff.) Indeed, you could argue that the Romney folks thought a lot more about staffing a Romney administration over the next four years than Team Obama did about a second-term administration.
    The longtime Democratic House member from New York, whose district includes Harlem, made the comments in an interview on MSNBC. Obama has announced a series of high-profile cabinet nominations in recent days, all of who have been white men.

    “It’s embarrassing as hell,” Rangel said. ”You have to do these things because it’s the right thing to do as a symbol of what America stands for.”
    —Chawley Rangel

    Meaning that discrimination based on skin color is what America “stands for” in the Obama era.

  50. Ragspierre says:


    Details of a liberal summit leaked out where one of the ambitious goals of the next four years was to “get big money out of politics.” One assumes, then, that the vast new liberal coalition will oppose the nomination of Jack Lew for Treasury secretary. The revolving-door Lew (cf. the similar career of Obamite former OMB director Peter Orszag now at Citigroup) took a nearly $950,000 million “bonus” from Citigroup in 2009, the very year the poorly managed and reeling bank was a recipient of a huge TARP federal bailout. That was the sort of “obscene” Wall Street bonus that Obama himself once derided as “fat cats who are getting awarded for their failure.” Perhaps instead of seeking new laws, all the liberal umbrella organizations would have to do is self-police themselves and abide by conflict-of-interest statutes and campaign laws on the books — given that Barack Obama was the first presidential candidate in the history of campaign-public-financing laws to opt out of the legislation during the 2008 general election, perhaps because he was on record as the largest beneficiary of BP and Goldman Sachs cash, in raising the most money in the history of presidential elections.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Easy there, old man. Lew took a $950K bonus. Maybe for shiftless losers like you that’s BIG money but for corporate america that’s pretty much chump change.

  52. Ragspierre says:


    Recall the horrific slate of politically-oriented science fiction films that Hollywood churned out in-between 1968′s 2001: A Space Odyssey and 1977′s Star Wars. Films such as Soylent Green, Silent Running and ZPG were obsessed with the Malthusian nightmares of overpopulation and deforestation that dominated the overculture of the time. Rollerball depicted a world controlled by giant corporations, at precisely the same time that Steve and Woz were cobbling together the first Apples in their Bay Area garage. They were followed by Leonard Nimoy’s cheesy synthesizer-scored In Search Of TV series a few years later, which explored Global Cooling, Killer Bees, Deadly Ants, and other ’70s obsessions.

    Today, these ’70s efforts are seen as equally campy as Refer Madness became three or four decades after its release. The eco-doomsday films of the naughts, such as The Day After Tomorrow, M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening, and Al Gore’s own An Inconvenient Truth are well on the way to becoming late night camp TV themselves, and at much faster rate as their equally schlocky predecessors.

    Perhaps someone can recut Al’s film and dub it “Climate Madness.” Maybe hire William Shatner to cut an exaggerated Jack Webb-style parody opening.

    Who knows: “Climate Madness” could eventually even have the same impact on its genre as his wife Tipper’s efforts to curb raunchy lyrics in pop music.

    “If we need fear anything gun-related in this country, leaving aside those wicked people who would presume to do us or our family and friends harm, it is the vocal, entitled, and demonstratively ignorant anti-gun zealot who seeks to substitute ostentatious indignation for knowledge and cartoonish scapegoating for reasoned discourse. They are experts at rousing emotions and fear mongering, but that tends to be where the “expertise” on gun issues ends.

Massive losses in that unit helped drive Citigroup into the arms of the federal government, which bailed out the bank with $45 billion in taxpayer money that year.”

December set a record for the criminal background checks performed before many gun purchases, a strong indication of a big increase in sales, according to an analysis of federal data by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a gun industry trade group.”

    UPDATE: Reader Ron Oglesby writes from Illinois:

    Stopped at the local shop in Plainfield, Illinois today. Its so crazy in there they have had to create new rules. New hours are 9am-2pm for purchases and looking at guns. 2pm-6pm for picking up ONLY. If you are not picking up you can’t come in!

    They have a good selection of ammo but you can only buy 5 boxes for any given caliber and. . . When I left there were 17 people waiting to talk to a rifle sales rep and a waiting list for a 12 lane range that was in double digits!!! I have been coming to this store for 10 years and have never seen it like this. All of this in one of the most un-friendly states for guns in the US!!! Change!!!

    The National Shooting Sports Foundation Inc.’s SHOT Show last year billed itself as “more than about selling and buying; it’s a powerful display of industry unity and its resolve to meet any challenge affecting the right to make, sell and own firearms.” The NSSF is headquartered in Newtown, Connecticut, where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults in an elementary school on Dec. 14 with a semiautomatic rifle.

    But Jim Wallace of the Gun Owners’ Action League of Massachusetts applauded the Granite State chiefs’ charitable efforts.

    “Why not?” Wallace said. “It’s a perfectly legal product, and obviously, there are a great number of citizens who want to support the cause.”

    Michele Bachmann’s high-profile debate coach, Brett O’Donnell, developed an “unnatural” and “Rasputin-like” relationship with his candidate during her failed 2012 presidential campaign, another former aide told BuzzFeed, a charge O’Donnell denies.

    Peter Waldron, an evangelical organizer who served as Iowa field coordinator for Bachmann and helped her win the Ames straw poll said O’Donnell exercised an “unusual power over Mrs. Bachmann.” Waldron and other former Bachmann staff also currently say the Congresswoman has yet to pay them for debts owned from her short-lived campaign.

    “He prohibited her husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, from sleeping in the same room with wife while on the campaign trail,” Waldron said in an email to BuzzFeed. “He prohibited legendary consultants Ed Rollins and Ed Goeas from attending debate prep sessions. He told her when she could get off the bus (Waterloo event with Gov. Perry), he wrote most of the words that came out of her mouth, he wrote all of her speeches.”

  98. Ragspierre says:

    It is an article of faith that closing the “gun-show loophole” would make America a safer place. But that is what it is: faith. In 2008, three criminologists (one of them not at all friendly to guns) studied the effects on murder and suicide rates in California (which prohibits private sales without a background check) and Texas (which does not). They looked at homicide and suicide rates for adjacent ZIP codes for a week after gun shows. They found no change in suicide rates, and in Texas, which has no restrictions on private party sales, a small but statistically significant reduction in gun homicides.

    This might seem surprising, and at first glance, it is. Except for one little detail: Criminals appear not to buy guns at gun shows, because guns are expensive. It is so much cheaper to steal guns instead. At Newtown, the killer first murdered his mother to steal the gun. At Clackamas Mall in Oregon in December, the shooter used a rifle he’d acquired by stealing it from a friend. In April of 2007, David Logsdon of Kansas City, Mo., murdered his neighbor and stole her late husband’s rifle for a mass murder.

  101. Ragspierre says:

    In 1999, State Senator Barack Obama voted “present” on a bill that would require adult prosecution for discharging a gun in or near a school.

    That legislation came as a response to the tragic Columbine High School shooting that year.

    SB 759 provided that anyone 15 years of age or older charged with aggravated battery with a weapon in school or within 1,000 feet of a school would be charged as an adult.

    It passed the Illinois State Senate in a 52-1 vote, with 5 members voting present — including Obama.

    Whadda putz.

  102. Ragspierre says:

    OBAMA: “The only way we will be able to change is if their audience, their constituents, their membership says, this time must be different, that this time we must do something to protect our communities and our kids. I will put everything I’ve got into this, and so will Joe. I will put everything I’ve got into this, and so will Joe.”

    Total bullshit.

    After the “do nothing” list of today, it is apparent Obama is using this as a distraction from the enoromous debt with which he’s saddling “the children”.

  105. Ragspierre says:


    Well, THAT is one problem.

    Another is that it is expressly against Federal law for Pres. Fast&Furious to order that kind of study from the CDC.

    ANOTHER is that the subject is ALREADY well studied.

    But, as we know, Pres. Fast&Furious HATES good science, is an outlaw, will politicize anything, and NEVER hesitates to flush taxpayer money down the crapper.

  106. Ragspierre says:

    The New New York Times reports an amazing discovery in the hysteria over assault weapons and puts it at the top of the article, Journalism 101-style:

    ***One obstacle President Obama may face in proposing a new federal ban on assault weapons could lie in the use of the term “assault weapon” itself.***

    You see, there is an apparently lack of clarity over what constitutes an assault weapon. I hope the folks writing the Times editorials on the subject get wind of this amazing discovery. It’s almost enough to make you think they don’t know what they’re talking about.

    Sha. Zaam.

    Of course “assault weapon” is a BS Collectivist propaganda term, like “gun violence”. Guns…being essentially power tools…are not “violent”.

  118. Ragspierre says:

    “Acting Director Jones was at the helm of ATF as many troubling problems from the fallout of Operation Fast and Furious festered,” said Issa. “His specific decisions on a number of Fast and Furious related issues raise concerns about his judgment and ability to lead the agency. While I continue to believe that ATF needs to have a Senate confirmed Director, President Obama has a responsibility to find a nominee who can win confirmation and is not saddled by a string of bad decisions related to the agency’s greatest recent failure,” Issa said in a statement. “Jones was first brought into the job of ATF Acting Director in the middle of the Fast and Furious scandal after Justice Department officials had falsely denied reckless conduct and allegations by his predecessor that there was an effort underway to shield the Department’s senior political appointees from the scandal. Because of the numerous ATF mistakes during his tenure as Acting Director pertaining to Fast and Furious, his nomination is a slap in the face to the family of fallen Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, Mexican citizens whose murder has been linked to Fast and Furious weapons, and ATF whistleblowers whom he failed to support.”

    Jones is notorious within ATF for retaliating against Fast and Furious whistleblowers. In July 2012, Jones warned ATF agents not to “jump their chain of command” and said if they did there would be “consequences.” Issa sent Jones a letter the same month, warning about retaliation.

    Obama’s war on accountability continues.

            And we finally get to the next part of your standard courtier’s reply – screaming about the supposed “definition” of “assault weapon” – as you conveniently define it. The effect the weapon has is meaningless, right?

            And to further highlight, your limp nature – how do you know that the weapon at issue WASN’T an “assault rifle” as you define it? You don’t – but we’ll take your word for it – which is all you ever ask, right?

            And none of your response has anything to do with the question posed – how many stories do you know of where an individual with a gun (not a policeman) stopped a crime like this from happening?

    Ah, yes the willful obtuseness. In the context of the definition of the term “assault weapon,” it is your position that the what a Bushmaster can accomplish in a matter of seconds is meaningless – right? Because it does not technically meet the supposed “definition” of “assault weapon”? Right?

    And we’re still waiting for examples of a private citizens stopping a crime-in-progress – being committed with weapons like these.

    But we know you won’t, because you prefer semantic games and weasel words. As usual.

      In the context of the definition of the term “assault weapon,” it is your position that the what a Bushmaster can accomplish in a matter of seconds is meaningless – right?

      In what context, moron?

      In the context of a murder? A single round from a shotgun…a single split second…will result in multiple holes in a person. Much more “effective” than a…du-dun—daaaa…Bushmaster.

      A mass shooting? Again, the weapon of choice would be a shotgun.

      But a semi-automatic rife…just like a lever-action or pump-action CAN fire several rounds in a short time. All of which can miss, because they require you AIM. (You poor, moronic, ignorant phuc).

      Now, as to “assault weapon”, the “techical definition” IS the definition.

      UNLESS you enter the world of gun-grabbing law-makers. THEN, anything THEY call an “assault weapon” is an “assault weapon”.

      Have you read the New York law, passed at the midnight hour? I have.

      Finally, moron, I won’t do the research you should be doing to maintain any integrity.

      I WILL tell you the Clackamas killer was stopped by a concealed carry guy, who never fired his piece.

        It’s always cute when you scream about everyone but you having the responsibility to Google for links to support your “arguments”. You do this whenever you cannot find any factually verifiable support for whatever fool idea you’re blathering about. It’s always obvious when its about to happen, too because you make a statement of fact without any supporting examples, and repeatedly ignore when it is pointed out that you haven’t provided any.

        “But a semi-automatic rife…just like a lever-action or pump-action CAN fire several rounds in a short time. All of which can miss, because they require you AIM. (You poor, moronic, ignorant phuc)”

        Gee, do you think aim is less important when you gave several high capacity magazines to work from, genius?

        ” WILL tell you the Clackamas killer was stopped by a concealed carry guy, who never fired his piece.”

        No, liar. The fellow THINKS that the shooter fired his last round at himself upon seeing him. He doesn’t know, and you don’t know. But that won’t stop you from offering speculation as proof.

        You and your causation problems ….

        And it sounds like the fellow was well-trained – unlike the Real Americans in IN, OH, and NC this weekend.

        And he didn’t prevent the crime. At BEST, he aided and abetted the criminal in offing himself after killing people.

        • Ragspierre says:

          “Gee, do you think aim is less important when you gave several high capacity magazines to work from, genius?”

          No more or less than if you have several low-capacity magazines, you moron.

          How many times would you have to reload your machete if you walked into a “gun free zone” filled with little kids intent on slaughter?

          WRT the rest of your BS, I will happily let it hang there for anyone to read.

          • Sanity says:

            “No more or less than if you have several low-capacity magazines, you moron.”

            Ah, so now even simple math is irrelevant to the consideration of what a weapon can do. To clarify, it is your position that the ability to shoot MORE rounds in less time is irrelevant to the question of what effect a weapon can have on a crowd.

            “How many times would you have to reload your machete if you walked into a “gun free zone” filled with little kids intent on slaughter?”

            How many machete slaughters do we have in this country per year, on average? Is it really your position, that one guy, with one machete – everything else being equal – could have inflicted the same carnage in Newtown, as one Real American with a Bushmaster? Really? But wait, I’m sure you can find an unrelated example that took place somewhere in the universe.

            And I guess you’re still hoping that your failure to present one example of a person stopping these sorts of rampages, will just be forgotten. Because, still – not one example.

          • Ragspierre says:

            “To clarify, it is your position that the ability to shoot MORE rounds in less time is irrelevant to the question of what effect a weapon can have on a crowd.”

            Certainly. Much more important are various other variables. Note that high-capacity magazines often fail. Stupid. Hence, a high-capacity magazine has PROVEN to impede mass killings.

            “Is it really your position, that one guy, with one machete – everything else being equal – could have inflicted the same carnage in Newtown.”

            Of course. Do you have any idea how long 20 minutes is?

            I know. That would assume an attachment to reality, which you display constantly here is too much to ask of you.

    Weekend gun violence in Chicago left two men dead and at least 15 other people wounded, including a man shot during a party in the Loop’s historic Palmer House Hilton Hotel.

    The man, 25, was attending a party on the 22nd floor of the hotel at 17 E. Monroe St. when a male shooter pulled out a gun and opened fire, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

    He was shot in the right leg, and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition, Alfaro said. No one is in custody early Sunday, and police had no word on what sparked the shooting.

    If gun control worked, Chicago would be safe.

    You people are fooling yourselves if you think the Supreme Court is going to step in and save your right to assault weaponry, real assault weaponry, or weapons presently designated assault weaponry by idiotic political hacks.

    You fail to appreciate just how far gone the courts are, federal and state.

    Chief Justice Roberts ruling in Sebellius, {obamacare}, his ruling on Arizona’s legislation on illegals, and that was sheer lawlessness, and all in a single term.

    And this clown has just gotten started……..

    We need state governments such as TEXAS for instance, to reach out to likeminded states, and also call out the militia.

    We need Rick Perry to ask all men and women interested in serving in the militia to show up at their local county capital on a Saturday, with their weapons.

    MILLIONS would show.

  129. Ragspierre says:

    The twisted irony of Obama’s presidency, particularly in light of his emulation of Lincoln and Reagan, is that, like them, he does face a momentous crisis that requires leadership commensurate to the moment. He just doesn’t have it in him to lead on it, or maybe he’s too busy with other priorities. An economic rebound in his second term will delay the reckoning with entitlements for a few years longer so his legacy is probably safe in the near term, but if he doesn’t do something wildly unexpected in the next four years to deal seriously with mandatory spending, then his place in history is secure. He’s the guy who expanded health-care entitlements at a moment when Medicare spending was starting to go haywire, the guy who doubled down on the welfare state as the bill was coming due, the guy whose second-term agenda was even more aggressively liberal than his first despite trillions more in debt over four years. You wanted him, America, you got him. Good luck.
