“Don’t let people who already have them keep them” – here comes the slippery slope

by Skip December 21, 2012

I quoted Chuck here in this post: In the current state of play, moderate gun owners have become convinced by the NRA and other, even more radical gun organizations such as Gun Owners of America that the goal of all gun-safety advocates is to take away their guns. These owners view even the most reasonable […]

by Mike December 21, 2012

So much fun, so little time before the world ends, we drive off the fiscal cliff, or maybe Boehner loses his gavel. The first one will soon be as much the butt of jokes as the Y2K panic, the second is looking increasingly likely, and Boehner’s snubs of fiscal conservatives may make the third event […]

Liberals Lie about Guns … and frankly just about everything else

by Don December 21, 2012

We can always count on James Veverka (on 12/19/2012 in the Laconia Daily Sun, laconiadailysun.com) to respond irrationally (hopefully he doesn’t have a gun), and suppress some, and misstate other, facts. First. No “rightwinger”, no second amendment supporter believes there should be no controls on access to guns. But, they do believe criminals who use […]

Do Something that Actually Dissuades and Stops Killers

by Don December 21, 2012

I am sympathetic with Ben Fordham’s call, in his 12/19 letter to the editor of The Citizen of Laconia (www.citizen.com), to “DO something“. We should do something that works. What we have been doing fails because it has been based on fantasy, not realism. We have established “gun free zones” to protect children and others, […]

Obama-Boehner is nothing like Reagan-O’Neill

by Don December 21, 2012

The column in the 12/21/2012 Citizen of Laconia (www.citizen.com) titled, “History teaches us valuable lesson about taking the same side”, apparently written by Steve and Cokie Roberts, is interesting, but I see little similarity between the Reagan-O’Neill situation and the Obama-Boehner situation.  For example, Tip O’Neill was interested in following the law and passing a […]

Data Point from FBI- Scary “assault” weapons kill less people then human body parts.

by Skip December 21, 2012

Actually, I have found elbows and knees to be extremely effective as well( in my younger (and lighter) days when sparring…): This shows that Liberals out to restrict “assault weapons” are wanting to create policy from a fear / emotional standpoint instead of dealing with reality. (H/T: The Blaze)

Obama Promises – when does this expiration date come up for renewal?

by Skip December 21, 2012

Pray tell, if he can’t keep his promise of better results on unemployment on a massive $1 Trillion Stimulus, what is his promise on the newest $50 Billion one he wants as part of the Fiscal Cliff? (H/T: AEI)

As former Senator Chuck Hagel (R Squish – NE) angles to be next SecDef, remember this:

by Skip December 21, 2012

(H/T: Looking Spoon) Groveling yet, Chuck? Former Nebraska senator Chuck Hagel is apologizing for comments he made in 1998 during a debate over the nomination of philanthropist James Hormel as ambassador to Luxembourg. Hagel came under fire yesterday from gay-rights groups for opposing Hormel’s nomination on the grounds that he was “openly, aggressively gay.” Hagel […]

Obama Campaign Never Paid

by Steve MacDonald December 21, 2012

According to this editorial, Obama never paid for security or other costs related to his campaign visits in New Hampshire. In a response to this newspaper and a letter to Portsmouth, Obama campaign officials said they had no role in making security decisions, so the campaign should not be expected to pay. After employing that […]

The New Hampshire House Rules committee, now run by Democrats, voted 6-4 yesterday to ban guns from the House portions of the State house.  The measure will now go to the House floor for a vote where it will see some discussion, after which–I predict–it will pass.
