Remember, no one wants to take away your guns . . . Former Obama Senior Adviser Comes Out and Says the US Should Do Gun Confiscation
Dan Pfeiffer, former senior adviser to former President Barack Obama and co-host of a podcast called “Pod Save America,” wrote his detailed plan to solve mass shootings like the recent one in Las Vegas.
In his post at the Crooked podcasting platform site, Pfeiffer writes that the reason no major gun control laws have been passed and signed is mostly because Republicans are in the pocket of the National Rifle Association — but also because Democrats don’t push the issue hard enough. …
While Pfeiffer never says the word “confiscation,” a gun buyback program is essentially one because you have to turn in the firearms within a certain time period or face consequences. It makes things easier for authorities to identify who has the guns if the country also implements the national gun registry he first suggested.
More impotent, transparent deflection . . . Alleged Sexual Predator and Hollywood Mogul Harvey Weinstein Threatens NRA (Again)
As for Weinstein’s recent threats against NRA, gun owners shouldn’t lose any sleep over the alleged sexual predator’s bluster. Even if Weinstein weren’t preoccupied with mounting legal woes, the producer isn’t much for follow-through. In response to criticism of his 2014 comments on The Howard Stern Show, Weinstein said he would curtail his support for violent movies. Weinstein said, “I have to choose movies that aren’t violent or as violent as they used to be,” and, “I know for me personally … I can’t continue to do that. The change starts here. It has already. For me, I can’t do it. I can’t make one movie and say this is what I want for my kids and then just go out and be a hypocrite.” A year later, Weinstein put out the blood-soaked Quentin Tarantino film The Hateful Eight.
On October 8, the Weinstein Company board, which includes Weinstein’s brother Bob, fired the embattled producer. Given the criminal implications of some of the allegations against the mogul, and reports of an FBI investigation, it is has yet to be determined if Weinstein’s retirement party will be held at a state or federal penitentiary.

Appropriately enough, from the Daily Beast . . . Lawsuit: Idaho Father Killed By Doomsday Prepper Deputy In Bull Euthanasia Gone Awry
The events of that November 2015 night remain the subject of fierce debate in Adams County, Idaho, where Yantis and his family owned a cattle ranch. When Yantis and his family went outside to shoot the bull, they encountered two sheriff’s deputies at the scene. The deputies fired at least 14 shots at Yantis, killing him on the spot. Both deputies claimed the shooting was in self-defense.
But in a lawsuit against the sheriff’s office filed on Friday, Yantis’ family describes the incident as murder by an officer who had previously spoken of a looming societal collapse, during which he would allegedly need to kill looters.

OMG! My children might see a gun! OMG! . . . Gun-toting brother-in-law wants to open-carry around kids
Dear Amy: My brother-in-law and I don’t have a particularly good relationship, and one of the sticking points is gun ownership.
He believes in the right to carry (openly), and I think guns should be carried only by police.
Every time I ask him not to bring guns near our family (we have three young children), he gets unbelievably offended.
Is there a polite way to ask him to please leave his guns at home?
Because American history is irredeemably racist. Or something . . . ‘We wanted to send a message’: Reenactors stage Civil War battle despite threat
Late Sunday morning, hundreds of Civil War reenactors concluded their battle on a rolling patch of grass 80 miles west of Washington.
In normal years, taps would be played and each side would march back to its tent encampments. But this was hardly a normal year. Last week, organizers announced they had received a letter threatening “bodily harm” to attendees. And Saturday, the battlefield had to be temporarily cleared because a suspicious device, possibly a pipe bomb, was found.
