This should encourage more ‘helpful’ friends . . . Arrest After Cops Classify Weapon as Assault Rifle – “A 68-year-old Westport man was arrested on a warrant on Jan. 31 charging him with Possession of an Assault Weapon after a friend of his brought the weapon to Westport police.

How the anti-gun astroturf sausage is made . . . NY’s Everytown hires 11 lobbyists, including NH lobbying firm – Yesterday, New York gun control organization Everytown for Gun Safety, another failed organization run by billionaire gun control addict Michael Bloomberg, ran a full page ad in the Union Leader. The deception in the ad is par for the course for this organization but what’s even more disturbing is that they’ve actually hired 11 lobbyists in the state of New Hampshire to fight against grassroots organizations and the citizens of the state.

A few too many PBRs . . . Police: Mother Shoots At Woman Trying To Break Into Tulsa Home – “A Tulsa mother is urging others to teach their kids to never answer the door if a stranger knocks.

This one didn’t fare quite so well . . .

Senate, don’t fight Trump and public opinion on guns for mentally ill – “By removing restrictions against acquiring guns, the supporters are enabling persons with mental illness to go from psychotic to gun purchases without hitting any pesky speed bumps. Donald Trump explained the problem with that approach, not only for the mentally ill, but for gun owners. When making the case for fixing our broken mental health system, he rhetorically asked, ‘And why does this matter to law-abiding gun owners? Because they get blamed by anti-gun politicians, gun control groups and the media for the acts of deranged madmen.’ If they let this bill go through, they deserve that blame.”
Yeah, some of them are that old now.
