Observations

We have let this go for a while lest we are accused of being intolerant, heartless, insensitive and probably Nazis. That isn’t the case; we simply wanted to clear the trash that wells up from the Progressive swamp. Note that this shooting motivated as it was, occurred in Maryland, a state with strong anti-gun laws and, routinely, traffic stops of out of state elicit vehicular searches of autos with tags of gun favoring states.

One has to wonder given state gin laws, how much worse the carnage at this paper would have been if their were other guns present. You know Liberals/Progressives are ALWAYS right, except when they’re wrong.

Personally, we have no desire to be near them or their states since we seldom find them right.

Observations

One has to believe that the new Governor of New Jersey desires to thurn the State into a large Chicago. More gun laws that have no effect on the transgressors of the law. Criminals pay no attention to the law by definition of criminal. Those who are hell bent on shooting up large masses of people, all ready have chosen to do so and don’t care if they die while doing such a deed.

New Jersey To Gun Owners: Hand Over Those Magazines Or We Could Throw You In Jail

If you don’t submit to our so-called common sense gun control policy, we’ll throw you in jail. That’s the mindset of New Jersey. With new anti-gun Governor Phil Murphy helming the ship there, you knew things would be terrible; he’s a Democrat. Beth laid out the details for this law, but the crux of it is that if you don’t turn over so-called high capacity magazines, those that hold more than ten-rounds, the state could throw you in hail for up to 18 months (via Free Beacon):

The law, signed by Gov. Phil Murphy on Wednesday along with five other new gun laws, gives New Jersey gun owners who currently possess ammunition magazines exactly 180 days to either surrender their ammunition magazines, permanently modify them to only accept up to 10 rounds, or transfer them to somebody who is allowed to legally own it such as those living in most other parts of the United States.

If someone in New Jersey is caught with a magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds after the deadline is passed, it will be considered a crime of the fourth degree which carries up to 18 months in prison and up to $10,000 in fines or both.

Nearly all full-size and compact handguns as well as many rifles come standard with ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs said it acted immediately to try and block the law because it could turn a million New Jersey gun owners into criminals. [snip]

In states with GOP governors, like Vermont and Florida, they both passed laws boosting the age to purchase to 21 for all firearms. It’s seeping into our areas. This cannot be ignored.

The NRA has joined a lawsuit filed by the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs against this confiscatory and unconstitutional law. [snip]

These are law-abiding gun owners, folks. Criminals weren’t going to abide by this law. They don’t abide by any gun laws. This is the only class of people in the country who are demonized and viewed with suspicion for exercising their constitutional rights. And they’re certainly blamed for mass shootings because the anti-gun Left is, and always will be, a group of badgering, self-righteous thugs who push crappy policies—all of which are mandatory. Their goal is not to respect your rights; the goal is to break you to the will of the state. In their eyes, true social justice can only be achieved if everyone is under their boot. In New Jersey, that day has arrived.

The smart thing is to move out of the state, taking your tax dollars with you. There are places where idiots/Leftists don’t hold office.
The next step is to ban all semi-autos ridding the state of evil magazines. Then it will be revolvers followed by knives, baseball bats and if necessary autos.

Before one realizes it they will have passed laws like in the UK where it is forbidden to harm someone committing a crime. That worked out well, didn’t it.

They won’t ban criminals; there be no Democrat voters left.

Knives are too sharp and filing them down is solution to soaring violent crime, judge says

A judge has proposed a nationwide programme to file down the points of kitchen knives as a solution to the country’s soaring knife crime epidemic.

Last week in his valedictory address, retiring Luton Crown Court Judge Nic Madge spoke of his concern that carrying a knife had become routine in some circles and called on the Government to ban the sale of large pointed kitchen knives.

Latest figures show stabbing deaths among teenagers and young adults have reached the highest level for eight years, and knife crime overall rose 22 per cent in 2017. [snip]

“The reason why these measures have little effect is that the vast majority of knives carried by youths are ordinary kitchen knives. Every kitchen contains lethal knives which are potential murder weapons.

As a result – said the judge – the most common knife a youth will take out is eight to ten inches, long and pointed, from his mother’s cutlery tray.

He asked: “But why we do need eight-inch or ten-inch kitchen knives with points?

“Butchers and fishmongers do, but how often, if at all, does a domestic chef use the point of an eight-inch or ten-inch knife? Rarely, if at all.”

“Acknowledging that any blade could cause injury, the judge pointed out “slash wounds are rarely fatal.”

So, he said: “I would urge all those with any role in relation to knives – manufacturers, shops, the police, local authorities, the government – to consider preventing the sale of long pointed knives, except in rare, defined, circumstances, and replacing such knives with rounded ends.

“It might even be that the police could organise a programme whereby the owners of kitchen knives, which have been properly and lawfully bought for culinary purposes, could be taken somewhere to be modified, with the points being ground down into rounded ends,” he said. [snip]

Once more the Loons on the Left blame the object rather than their idiotic laws.

When the Left doesn’t like an action, they feel the need to show their type of tolerance.

Shoppers Step Over Bodies at Hogg-Led Publix Protests

After having begun the week receiving national attention for being run by people too stupid to know the difference between academic achievement and pornography, Publix Supermarkets Inc. finished it letting everyone know that the company’s corporate stupidity is here to stay:
The Newly Press has more:

Liberal Democrats who believe in  bullying people and/or corporations into submission ought to feel proud today, ladies and gentlemen, because thanks to the bullying of David Hogg and his peers, one major Florida company has just abdicated its free speech rights.

The bullying started this week after Hogg, a survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting in Florida three months earlier, began targeting a popular employee-owned supermarket chain that employees over 190,000 Americans.

Publix supermarket chain attracted the 18-year-old gun control zealot’s ire after he learned that it had contributed over half a million dollars to the Florida gubernatorial campaign of Adam Putnam, a Second Amendment advocate and proud NRA member.

For those who have been busy enjoying life and not reading news about David Hogg, the kid’s modus operandi (not dirty, Publix, I swear!) is to use his Prized Progressive Puppet status to bully anyone who disagrees with him into silence. As the progs and Democrats really have nothing else going for them at the moment, he’s getting an extension on his fifteen minutes of fame.

While Hogg’s spiteful focus is currently on NRA supporters, the odds are probably pretty good that the kid will be branching out to a variety of other leftist issues before long. These thoughts and actions aren’t his own, remember. His handlers are grooming him for bigger things. Look for him to be targeting anyone who opposes taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood any day now. [snip]

Tripping over one of these fools and delivering an elbow to another’s solar plexus should convince them that BS protest can be painful.

The proper use of a firearm is displayed. Leftists don’t approve.

Police: Holly Hill Little Caesars employee shoots, kills attacker wearing mask

HOLLY HILL, Fla.A Holly Hill Little Caesars employee shot and killed a masked man who attacked him with a wooden post and scissors late Saturday, according to a police report.

Heriberto Feliciano, 28, was working at the pizza parlor at 158 Ridgewood Avenue around 11:50 p.m. when he was attacked by a man wearing a “clown mask,” police said.

The masked man, who police have not identified, hit Feliciano on the face and shoulder with a wooden post until it broke, and then tried to stab him with scissors, police said.

Feliciano told police he was able to reach a gun on him and shot the man four to five times at close range, according to the police report.

The masked man was taken to Halifax Medical Center, where he later died.

Police released this picture of the mask the man wore:

Police Chief Steve Aldrich said there’s no indication that anyone beside the masked man was involved in the attack.

“I’m glad that he was able to defend himself and that he’s okay. It’s just unfortunate that this whole episode occurred,” he said.

Fortunate for Heriberto that he doesn’t reside in the UK. There he would have been arrested for defending himself and causing the death of the perp. That he used a gun would have caused a myocardial infarction.

No amount of alcohol, sausage or bacon is safe according to cancer experts

No amount of alcohol, sausage or bacon is safe according to a new global blueprint on how to beat cancer.

Even small amounts of processed meats and booze increase the risk of a host of cancers outlined in World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) guidelines updated every decade.

The respected global authority has unveiled a 10-point plan to cut your risk of getting cancer by up to 40%.

Brits have been told to banish favourites such as ham, burgers and hot dogs from their diets by experts who say they are a direct cause of bowel cancer.

Processed meats also cause people to be overweight which can trigger many more cancers.

But UK experts have disagreed with the draconian advice insisting the odd bacon sandwich “isn’t anything to worry about”.

The WCRF found boozing is directly linked to increased risk of six cancers and for the first time recommended sticking to water or unsweetened drinks.

It added stomach cancer to its previous list of cancers of the bowel, breast, oesophagus, liver and throat.

The third WCRF Expert Report is unveiled today(Thur) at the European Congress on Obesity in Vienna following earlier landmark reports in 1997 and 2007.

It is the biggest ever global analysis of cancer triggers covering 51 million people – 3.5 million who were diagnosed with cancer.

Cancers of the liver, ovary, prostate, stomach, throat have been added to those of the bowel, breast, gallbladder, kidney, oesophagus, pancreas and womb which are directly caused by obesity.

The report said: “Even small amounts of alcoholic drinks can increase the risk of some cancers. [snip]

Facebook accused of conducting mass surveillance through its apps

Facebook used its apps to gather information about users and their friends, including some who had not signed up to the social network, reading their text messages, tracking their locations and accessing photos on their phones, a court case in California alleges.

The claims of what would amount to mass surveillance are part of a lawsuit brought against the company by the former startup Six4Three, listed in legal documents filed at the superior court in San Mateo as part of a court case that has been ongoing for more than two years.

A Facebook spokesperson said that Six4Three’s “claims have no merit, and we will continue to defend ourselves vigorously”. Facebook did not directly respond to questions about surveillance. [snip]

One court filing, referring to a period in 2013 and 2014, alleges: “Facebook made partial disclosures around this time regarding privacy settings, but did not fully disclose that it had caused certain settings to lapse after a period of time.”

The lawsuit claims the ability to read text messages on Android phones was also partially disclosed, presented to users as a way to make logging in easier, but Facebook deployed it to collect a range of other messages and the associated metadata.

It also collected information sent by non-subscribers to friends or contacts who had Facebook apps installed on their phones, the court documents claim. Because these people would not have been Facebook users, it would have been impossible for them to have consented to Facebook’s collection of their data.

“Facebook disclosed publicly that it was reading text messages in order to authenticate users more easily … [but] this partial disclosure failed to state accurately the type of data Facebook was accessing, the timeframe over which it had accessed it, and the reasons for accessing the data of these Android users,” the complaint alleges.

Facebook has not fully disclosed the manner in which it pre-processes photos on the iOS camera roll, meaning if a user has any Facebook app installed on their iPhone, then Facebook accesses and analyses the photos the user takes and/or stores on the iPhone, the complainant alleges.

Facebook has an option to “sync” photos taken on the phones with the app downloaded, which it says users need to opt into to use.

A spark of sanity from one Democrat in an otherwise darkness of clabbering Jackass insanity. It was soon extinguished.

Hard Reality: No Mainstream Gun Control Law Would Have Stopped the Texas High School Horror

Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner told CNN’s State of the Union that he doesn’t think “there’s a single piece of legislation” that could have prevented last week’s horrible killing at a Texas high school, adding that a more holistic “series of actions” are needed.  His other nod to reality was acknowledging, after being prodded by host Jake Tapper, that Democrats failed to act on gun control when they controlled all three elected levers of power in Washington, DC during the Obama years. “Perhaps, in retrospect, more should have been done,” he said, amid various evasions and excuses.

Warner — who has moved to the left with the rest of his party on guns — also mentioned background checks and “military-style assault weapons” in the interview, each of which is irrelevant to the latest incident.  The Texas killer was not legally permitted to own guns, and used more traditional (i.e., not an “assault rifle”) firearms during a rampage that left ten people dead.  Nevertheless, these facts, which Warner at least partially recognizes, didn’t stop one of his colleagues from Connecticut from unleashing his preferred brand of demagogic post-tragedy moral indignation:

Chris Murphy (Dolt) CT tweeted: Let’s call it like it is: the horrifying inaction of Congress, slaughter after slaughter, has become a green light to would-be shooters, who pervert silence into endorsement.

I’m left unclear as to what exactly Murphy is talking about. As the New York Times has confirmed, the shooter in Texas used a shotgun and a .38-caliber revolver — and nothing else besides. Moreover, because he was 17-years-old, he was ineligible to purchase a gun either privately or commercially, and thus had no contact with NICS background-check system that Murphy wants to expand. What, precisely, did “Congress” fail to do here?
What perverted signal did it send? What “endorsement” did it provide? … As for the implication that is embedded in Murphy’s tweet — namely, that declining to prohibit a given tool is in some way an endorsement of those who would abuse it — well, I can think of few more destructive ideas in a free country. Was Thurgood Marshall sending a “green light” to the KKK when he voted with the majority in Brandenburg v. Ohio? Are the many opponents of the Patriot Act offering an “endorsement” to the devotees of Jihad? Hardly. By suggesting that his opponents disagree with him because they are happy to “allow” massacres, rather than because they think that his proposals (such as they are) will be useless, Murphy is seriously damaging our debate over guns, and hurting our political culture.

“As far as I can see, there are only two reasonable ways to interpret this behavior: 1) That Senator Murphy is a grandstander who does not understand this issue well enough to do anything but shout “do something!” whenever he sees an abomination on the news; or 2) That Senator Murphy actually does want to ban shotguns and revolvers and everything else besides — and, by extension, that he wants to repeal the Second Amendment to the Constitution in order to get it done.”  Which is it, Senator?  This is why so many gun rights supporters view the gun control movement’s loudest voices as peddling in ignorance or dishonesty.  Take this tweet, for instance, which was shared thousands of times: [snip]
