    So apparently Bloomberg is a big advocate of gun control, but refuses to give up his own protection...

    In the video, Bloomberg is seen surrounded by security. Mattera approaches Bloomberg and asks, “In the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?”

    Reporter to Jay Carney: So, how often does the president shoot skeet?
    Carney: Squirrel!

    By Doug Powers • January 28, 2013 04:46 PM


    In an interview with The New Republic, President Obama said that he shoots skeet “all the time” at Camp David. http://twitchy.com/2013/01/27/bitter...the-time-guys/

    Jay Carney was asked about that at today’s briefing, and surprisingly enough, Carney was fairly vague about any details:

    A reporter today asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney how often Obama goes shooting and why hasn’t the press corps heard about this before? Carney simply referred her to Obama’s statement.

    Is there a photo of the president shooting? “There may be, but I haven’t seen it,” Carney replied. He didn’t mention if he had personally seen Obama go shooting.
    There may not be an existing photo of President Obama shooting skeet, but I’ll bet there will be by the end of the week.

    I can see it now the outdoorsman president out snipe hunting. The fresh air, the burlap sack, and a picture of the president waiting at night along a known snipe trail. This is almost as exciting for him as skeet shooting. and as phony as Kerry hunting in 2004.

    Government Officials Not Subject to Proposed Assault Weapons Ban;
    Government Says Assault Weapons Good for Self Defense When Used By Government

    Filed under: General— Patterico @ 7:28 am



    The Blaze: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013...sonal-defense/

    The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” (PDW) — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians. The solicitation, originally posted on June 7, 2012, comes to light as the Obama administration is calling for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.

    Citing a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP), Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com reports that DHS is asking for the 7,000 “select-fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” The term select-fire means the weapon can be both semi-automatic and automatic. Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.
    Meanwhile: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/...ls_697732.html


    Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt.

    “Mrs. Feinstein’s measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel,” the Washington Times reports.
    Place to one side for now the fact that, in light of the purpose of the Second Amendment, it raises questions for government officials to have the right to bear arms that citizens can’t. I think anyone would agree that the military should be able to have weapons citizens can’t, and the same arguably applies to law enforcement. Your neighbor doesn’t get to have a nuclear bomb.

    But when “government officials” are not subject to the same laws as citizens, there is a problem.

    That alone is reason to oppose Feinstein’s bill.

    And why are assault weapons “suitable for self defense in close quarters” when used by government officials, but not necessary for citizens who want to defend themselves.

    There’s some hypocrisy going on here, it seems.

    http://patterico.com/2013/01/28/gove...by-government/

    comments

    The retired law enforcement exemption is especially indicative that the exemption exists to bribe LEO support. There is no way that one can argue that retired law enforcement have some sort of special need for arms that the average citizen does not.

    And personally, I do not believe that active law enforcement are entitled to weapons denied to me.

    ..

    Obviously, the secret is for some local jurisdiction to deputize us all. $50 a head, and any financial problems they have are gone.

    ..

    Feinstein’s bill makes millions of rifles into a classification identical to that of fully automatic weapons.

    Should something that stupid pass, it will mean that millions of people will end up liable for a Federal felony – often innocently because of a failure to understand a need to properly register their firearm. Our laws are already so complex as to ensnare many innocent people. Ask David Gregory.

    And millions more may consider that since their already owned firearm is a Federal felony, why not go ahead and just convert it to full auto since the penalty is the same?

    ..

    I know you are shocked, as I am;

    http://www.jammiewf.com/2013/above-t...legal-weapons/

    ...

    If this passes, some small jurisdiction needs to allow people to work for a short time as deputies (say, 4 hours?) then retire with no pension. Voila! Retired law enforcement!

    ..

    By the by, ‘reserve law enforcement’ is one of the tricks used in California to allow concealed carry to the wealthy/famous/donators to the Sheriff’s reelection campaign.

    ..

    San Diego Police Chief: We Can Disarm Americans Within a Generation : http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governm...n-A-Generation

    ..

    In New York State, the ban on magazines carrying more than 7 bullets seems to apply to the police also, apparently making the police in violation of law if they buy any more (they are grandfathered in for a year) Cuomo Adminisitartion officials say, "no, no.." but they may have no exception written in it. (maybe some other law allows police to have all kinds of banned weapons, I don’t know)

    But they say they are going to pass another law clarifying things.

    Meanwhile Republicans in the State Senate are disturbed – the gun law was one thing, they say, but there may be whole raft of laws that the senate leader (in coalition with 5 Democrats) may be getting ready to pass, like raising the minimum wage to $8.75)

    ..

    Clearly facts get in the way; http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/01/ca...-unloaded-gun/

    Assault Weapons In Realityville

    NY Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly is all in favor of an "assault weapon" ban even though they aren't the problem facing New York City: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/s...iS38ewn9UuFlBM

    While assault rifles serve no legitimate hunting purpose, and their ban would be a welcome advance after the Newtown slaughter, illegal handguns remain the weapon of choice for killers and other criminals in New York City.

    Ninety percent, or 2,493, of the 2,779 illegal firearms seized from suspects in arrests in the city last year were handguns.

    By contrast, a total of 77 assault weapons were seized in arrests in the city, less than 3 percent of the total.

    In only three of nearly 1,400 shooting incidents last year were ballistics associated with assault weapons.
    Kelly favors an expansion of background checks, although he misstates an old survey here:

    It’s estimated that as much as 40 percent of guns are sold through the so-called gun-show loophole. A national requirement for universal background checks, regardless of how or where the gun is sold, would help with that problem.
    Well, it's estimated that up to 40 percent of transfers, including gifts and inheritances as well as some gun show sales, aren't covered by the current background check law. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...b712_blog.html

    This related story includes an unexpected interlude with common sense: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/k...odkRPsPCtRPYOM

    “Kelly is obviously right” about the background checks, said Matt Bennett, a spokesman for the Third Way, a centrist advocacy group that includes the Americans for Gun Safety coalition.

    “We support an assault-weapons ban. There is no reason anyone should have these military-style weapons,” he said. “On the other hand, if you had to make a priority list, that is low on priority list.

    “On the top of our list is universal background checks.”
    In journo-speak, a "centrist advocacy group" http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2004Nov10.html means left-wing, http://www.thirdway.org/co_chairs but not delusionally so. The Third Way seems to be the heirs to the DLC.

    comments




    TM, I already told you, where that survey comes from, the elves shop at the Joyce Foundation, btw, it's just a coincidence that prior to this post, Kelly was a principal with IGI, the investigative firm, well tied to the Clinton's intimidation efforts.

    Just another Clinton flack, as Wes Clark campaign staffer, they admit to those; http://www.thirdway.org/staff/3

    More of the same; http://perspectives.thirdway.org/?p=2476

    ..




    "universal background checks" == registry.

    registry ==> confiscation

    ..

    Even if I supported "universal background checks" there is no evidence that it would have stopped the Sandy Hook shooter (whose name I refuse to type or say out loud). He stole the guns

    ..

    "universal background checks"
    I'll bet the background checks on individuals applying to own a firearm are more stringent than the ones applied by MSM to Dem POTUS candidates.

    Our community had 98 shootings for 2012 ... only three of the victims were armed. Food for thought.

    Doctor probes teen on guns in the home
    Boy's visit was for tonsil problem

    January 23, 2013|John Kass

    In pro-gun-regulation Illinois — where politicians would rather play gun control politics than fight the murderous street gangs — a young man was admitted to the hospital.

    Sam Insley, 16, of Oak Lawn, wasn't admitted with a gun problem.

    Sam had a tonsil problem.

    "It was an infected tonsil," Mary Rita Insley told me of her son Sam, a strapping, 6-foot-2-inch, 195-pound lacrosse player at St. Rita High School on the Southwest Side.

    "Yes, he's a big kid, but regardless of his age and stature, my husband and I were with him the entire time he was there."

    Sam was admitted to Advocate Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn on Jan 4. A resident and two medical students began jotting down notes for a routine medical history. At one point, Mrs. Insley said, they asked her to step out of the room.

    "I felt uneasy, but I stepped out so my son wouldn't be embarrassed," she told me, saying she figured they would ask drug and alcohol questions. Sam doesn't take drugs or alcohol, she said.

    Later that day, Sam told her what the doctors had asked him.

    "By the way, Mom," she recalled him saying, "when you were out of the room they asked me if we had any guns in the house."

    Guns?

    "Yes, it was none of their business," she said. "Where do they get off? I was furious.

    "By the way, he answered 'no.' We don't have guns. But that's not the point. The point is that they use bureaucratic leverage to break down our privacy. And the last time I checked, I was an American."

    Insley said she wasn't a gun rights crusader hoping to get her name in the paper. She said she was a mom who wanted to make sure other parents know what doctors are asking their children.

    She said she would have understood a gun-related question if her son was being treated for mental or emotional issues. But he doesn't have those issues and has never been treated for them, she said.

    "He wasn't there for psychiatric reasons," she said. "He wasn't suicidal. HE WAS THERE FOR AN INFECTED TONSIL!"

    Insley knows I'm a hunter and that I have teenage sons of my own, and that I'm not a liberal journalist who hates on the Second Amendment.

    I understand that the right to bear arms isn't a right granted us by the president, and that it's not only about hunting. It's about free Americans being able to resist a government that steps on their rights.

    "Now, with all this gun control legislation (in Illinois), I'm angry for many reasons," she said. "Why are they asking about guns in the hospital? Are they mandated by Obamacare to do so? Can they ask a minor about guns without a parent in the room? I'm really upset."

    Advocate spokesman Mike Maggio told us he couldn't discuss this case for privacy reasons, but that gun questions are "not part of our protocol. It is not routine in any way. And it's not a standard practice."

    Later Tuesday, Insley said she received a telephone call from Dr. Mark Butterly, head of the hospital's pediatric residency program. She said Butterly told her that it is indeed standard practice.

    I'd hoped to speak directly with Butterly and with the staff members about whether they asked gun questions of a tonsil patient. But Butterly and Advocate didn't return repeated email messages and phone calls asking for those interviews.

    According to Insley, Butterly told her the staff began asking such questions in October. This apparently follows a report from the American Academy of Pediatrics published Oct. 18 recommending that pediatricians ask gun questions as part of patient history.

    That October report cites firearms as one of the top three killers of American children and reasons that questions about availability of guns would allow medical staff to tell parents to keep guns out of their homes, or at least out of children's reach.

    "Child health care professionals," the October report reads, "can and should provide effective leadership in efforts to prevent gun violence, injury and death."

    No one should have unsecured guns in a home or anywhere else. We've seen too many stories of what happens when those rules aren't followed.

    But Sam Insley was there for his tonsils.

    Besides, the family doesn't have guns. But they do think they have rights as Americans against invasion of privacy.

    "I went to the hospital because I had tonsillitis," Sam told us in an interview Tuesday evening. "I had to go in for an IV.

    "Some of the questions had nothing to do with the sickness. They asked my mom to step out. They said, 'We have some questions to ask you. Some private questions,'" Sam recalled.

    "They started off asking about grades — do you get good grades in school? Do you get bullied? And then they said, 'Do you have guns in the home?'"

    Sam's reaction?

    "I thought that was pretty out there, myself," Sam said. "The question about 'Do you have guns in the home?' That just stood out.

    "Why did they need to know that? I'm in here because my tonsil is swollen and they're asking me if we own guns. I was confused and, in a way, kind of upset. Kind of like an invasion of privacy."

    Mary Rita Insley, newly sensitized to gun issues, has since applied for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card. But here's what bothers her.

    "If I purchase a gun, am I then supposed to train my children to lie for fear of the government knowing I have guns?" she asked.

    She could have asked another question: Is Illinois part of the United States?

    I'm glad she didn't. I wouldn't know what to tell her.

    "For the last quarter century, gun deaths in the US per year have been mostly in the 30 to 35 thousand range. There are many more suicides than assaults. The fact your reader contorted into absurdity was published by Breitbart. In the survey year 2011, per the FBI, 323 people were killed by rifles, compared to 496 for trauma by blunt objects, such as hammers and clubs. Rifle deaths accounted for only 1 percent of the "gun deaths""

    ,,,

    The hearing in the Senate is on right now. One man wants to confiscate guns because "criminals will not agree to background searches." Well, there's a surprise for you! Neither will they try any legal way to get their guns -- but they will get them!

    New Jersey man allegedly shot another with hunting bow after fistfight
    Published January 30, 2013


    A New Jersey man reportedly faces murder charges after he allegedly shot another man with a hunting bow in an apparent dispute over a woman.

    Camden County authorities told the Philadelphia Daily News that the arrow pierced Kereti Paulsen's stomach and perforated the iliac vein in his pelvis late Monday. The 25-year-old man was pronounced dead at Virtua Hospital in Berlin shortly after.

    "He wasn't always the best person in the world, and he did a lot of stupid stuff, but he wasn't malicious in any way, and me and my daughter loved him," said Lauren Palmer, the mother of Paulsen's 5-year-old daughter, Aurora.

    Authorities said Paulsen, of Cape May Court House, scuffled with another man outside a residence at Brill Avenue and Egg Harbor Road. Palmer said Paulsen had a rocky, on-and-off relationship with a woman who lived at the house.

    Everyone except Paulsen went inside following the fistfight and a resident who was not involved, Timothy Canfield, allegedly emerged from the house with a compound bow and several arrows. Authorities said Canfield, 25, shot Paulsen once, striking his target.

    Prosecutors said Canfield later tried to hide the bow — commonly used for deer-hunting — in a wooded area of Winslow Township.
