Stole this from Hot Air.

I hope this goes through. I am so tired of California’s draconian laws on guns. Maybe a case can be brought against this state for impeding on the RTKBA.

I would like to see this state become a “shall issue” state.

Supreme Court Grants Cert in Second Amendment Incorporation Case!

This is the question that the Court held off considering in Heller.

Whether the Second Amendment is incorporated into the Due Process Clause or the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment so as to be applicable to the States, thereby invalidating ordinances prohibiting possession of handguns in the home.

Heller finally settled the question of whether the Second Amendment protects and individual right to firearms. But unlike most of the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment has generally (and with some exceptions back in the 1800s) not been applied to the states.

FedEx flies terminally ill girl home
By CELIA DEWOODY

Because of caring people and a caring company, a terminally ill little Green Forest girl was flown home Friday by air ambulance from M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, so she can spend her last days surrounded by the people who love her most.

Jada Harper, who turned seven on Sept. 1, has an inoperable malignant tumor in her brain and is in a coma with a ventilator doing her breathing for her. She has been at the famous cancer center in Houston since July, but her situation is now at the point not much else can be done to help her.

Another reason to treat Hollywood with contempt. Whoopi Goldberg is a moron. The majority of the idiots in Hollywood think just like she does. Pathetic. I used to like her, until she started talking.

They’re all pedophiles if they support this asshole Polanski.

And people actually listen to these idiots.

Roman Polanski: backlash as Whoopi Goldberg says director didn’t commit ‘rape-rape’

Goldberg, star of The Color Purple and Sister Act, said: “I know it wasn’t rape-rape. I think it was something else, but I don’t believe it was rape-rape.”

“He pled guilty to having sex with a minor and he went to jail, and when they let him out he said ‘You know what, this guy’s going to give me 100 years in jail. I’m not staying’. And that’s why he left.”

Still feel sorry for the pedophile?

Roman Polanski: What Did He Do?

Last year, transcripts of Geimer’s 1977 grand jury testimony, which resulted in six charges against Polanski, were made public. The transcipts include shocking details of 13-year-old Geimer testifying that the 43-year-old Polanski plied her with champagne and part of a Quaalude before performing oral, vaginal and anal intercourse on her, despite her demands to “keep away.”

Yeah. Just sex. Just sex.

Morons.

More on those damn lies of his:

Is Your Money Really Your Money? Not if You Ask the Democrats.
By Jimmie Bise

Remember when the President said, even when confronted with a dictionary, that a tax wasn’t actually a tax because he decided to call it “a responsibility”. Well, call it whatever you want, but according to the Joint Committee on Taxation, if you don’t pay whatever it is, you’ll go to jail for a year or pay up to a $25,000 fine.

Not like Al Capone, though. He went to jail for tax evasion. You’ll go to jail for…err…not fulfilling your responsibility to pay money the government says you must pay but isn’t a tax, honest and for true, because the President said it wasn’t. Admittedly, it’s going to take up a bit more room on your criminal record, but perhaps you can explain it away by saying you didn’t really go to jail; you went to a “freedom restriction facility”.

After all, it’s the President’s world. We, and the definitions of common words, are just living in it, right?

Literary Lion Obama Will Roar No More
By
Jack Cashill

The major media will not likely tackle the emerging evidence of Obama’s stunning literary fraud, but the days of Obama’s boasting about his writing skills are just as likely over.

The immediate cause of concern at the White House is Christopher Andersen’s largely benign new book, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage.

Andersen contends that the ambitious Obama, unaware of JFK’s own literary fraud, hoped to launch his own political career with a book as did John Kennedy with the discreetly ghost-written Profiles In Courage.

Samurai vs Burglar…

Gregory Kane: Get a handgun, save a life
By  Gregory Kane

Here’s the punch line:

A Baltimore Sun editorial lamented the killing, claiming that “even burglars don’t deserve to be killed with a razor-sharp sword.” (That leaves us all to ponder this question: What, exactly, DO burglars deserve to be killed with?) Later, in the same editorial, the writer pondered what would have happened if Rice had been armed.

And there, dear readers, you have a classic example of what I call lib-think. I take it you noticed the underlying assumption: Criminals are supposed to be armed. It’s kind of in their job description. But law-abiding citizens being armed? Oh, perish the thought.

And you wonder why American kids suck at real academics.

Elementary School Students Reportedly Taught Songs Praising President Obama

An elementary school class in New Jersey was reportedly videotaped singing songs praising the “great accomplishments” of President Obama as they are apparently conducted and coaxed on by teachers.

Nearly 20 young children are captured in an online video as they sing songs that overflow with campaign slogans and praise for “Barack Hussein Obama,” as they repeatedly chant the president’s name and celebrate his accomplishments, including his “great plans” to “make this country’s economy No. 1 again.”

No Indoctrination Here
By
AmericanElephant

We’ve warned about the indoctrination of our school children before.  Some Americans laughed.  I guess this doesn’t bother them at all.  Well, it bothers the heck out of me.  How warped are our priorities as a nation when we teach our school children its ok to hate the country and deplore its founding, and at the same time teach them to sing in praise of an individual President, who as they put it is “number one”?

I know it probably isn’t the bank’s fault, just an over zealous liberal moron that runs this particular branch, but dude, really? Bank of America doesn’t fly the American flag on its property? You’re joking right? America is the name of the bank for Pete’s sake!

You can’t honor a fallen Marine? Are you that pathetic? The manager really needs a good beat down.

His particular branch has already lost over $500,000 in accounts. I hope they lose a hell of a lot more.

What a moron.

Bank of America Draws Fire for Pulling U.S. Flags From Property

When a South Carolina woman tried to honor her next door neighbor, a Marine who was recently in Afghanistan, by planting flags along the route the casket would follow, a Bank of America branch manager pulled the flags from the bank’s property, citing “corporate policy.”

With a name like Bank of America, it was particularly surprising when a branch manager in South Carolina ordered the removal of a U.S. flag honoring a fallen soldier from the bank’s property.

Brenda Earls of Gaffney, S.C., tried to honor her next-door neighbor, Marine Lance Cpl. Christopher Fowlkes, who was recently killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, by planting flags along the route the casket would follow. But a Bank of America branch manager pulled the flags from the bank’s property, citing “corporate policy.”

Bank of America, which has received $45 billion in federal loans as part of the government rescue of the financial industry, apologized for the incident, calling it a “terrible mistake.”

Still a Shortage in Ammo…

Ammo shortages are still an issue.

I got lucky last month and was able to pick up some target ammo for my Beretta 96FS. Apparently the dude that had them set aside had not come in to pick them up in a month, so the salesman let me buy them. That was the ONLY .40 ammo in BassPro in Vegas.

The only .223 I’ve been able to find locally is hollow point 55gr which my Kel-Tec probably won’t like. I have heard others have problems with hollow points in semi-auto rifles, so I don’t even want to try it.

Ammo Sales Spike Continues Months After Obama Elected

NEW ORLEANS —  Bullet-makers are working around the clock, seven days a week, and still can’t keep up with the nation’s demand for ammunition.

Shooting ranges, gun dealers and bullet manufacturers say they have never seen such shortages. Bullets, especially for handguns, have been scarce for months because gun enthusiasts are stocking up on ammo, in part because they fear President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass antigun legislation — even though nothing specific has been proposed and the president last month signed a law allowing people to carry loaded guns in national parks.

Gun sales spiked when it became clear Obama would be elected a year ago and purchases continued to rise in his first few months of office. The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System reported that 6.1 million background checks for gun sales were issued from January to May, an increase of 25.6 percent from the same period the year before.
