Don’t hold your breath, Mountain Staters . . . West Virginia AG Calls on Joe Manchin to Separate Himself from Dem Leadership
“I have no doubt that Senator Manchin enjoys a boost because people are not aware of his very liberal record,” Morrisey said. “On the issues that matter most to West Virginia, Manchin has failed the state.”
One of those issues is gun control.
Morrisey, who won the endorsement of major gun-rights groups shortly after announcing his candidacy, said Manchin is “clueless” regarding the Second Amendment.
“That is someone who is clueless on how the Constitution works and how the Second Amendment operates,” Morrisey said of Manchin, citing the senator’s comment last year that “due process” was to blame for gun violence.
Not exactly Putin striding bare chested through the brush with a hunting rifle, is it? . . . Dictator nicknamed the Tyrant of Turkmenistan is mocked over bizarre video of him shooting guns and throwing knives while loyal lackeys clap along
The eccentric dictator known as the Tyrant of Turkmenistan’ has been mocked in a video that was originally designed to show off his shooting and knife-throwing skills.
In the video dentist-turned-dictator Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov can be seen taking part in target practice including shooting a pistol one-handed while his ‘awe-stuck’ lackeys watch.
But an opposition group turned the footage into farce by adding music and clips from Arnold Schwarnegger’s 1985 film Commando.
If you’re the dick-tater of a Central Asian hell-hole trying to burnish your tough-guy bonafides, why do you shoot .22’s in your
exercise in video autofellatio public service message to your loving people?
Many of us have been saying this for a long time . . . Beaumont Health physician says being mentally ill doesn’t predispose someone to gun violence
“About one percent or less of those that commit these crimes have a psychiatric diagnosis,” said Ruza. “Mental health does not mean that you’re at-risk for mass shootings or suicide. What pre-disposes you to a mass shooting are personality disorders like narcissistic personality, paranoid personality and anti-social personality.
Ruza said the general public have an idea that people who conduct mass shootings are psychiatric-disabled or have a psychiatric diagnosis.
“This is absolutely false,” said Ruza. “Less than one percent have a true psychiatric diagnosis.”
Teaching kids gun safety; an idea so crazy…it just might work! . . . Wisconsin Lawmakers to Take Comments on HS Gun Classes
A legislative committee is set to take comments on a Republican bill that would create gun safety courses for Wisconsin high schools.
The bill calls for the state superintendent to work with the Department of Natural Resources or police or an organization that specializes in firearms safety or certifies firearm instructors to develop the curriculum for an elective class on gun safety. Live ammunition wouldn’t be allowed.
Schools would not be required to offer the course.
What’s the bet that the local chapter of Moms Demand Action sends someone to testify against this common sense gun safety legislation?
This move seems ripe for some legislative oversight . . . Utah: New Concealed Firearm Permit Applications Subject to Sudden Fee Increase
Previously, your NRA-ILA reported that the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) was planning to increase the cost of a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP) by more than 50%. Without the necessary consideration and approval by the Utah Legislature, BCI has unilaterally implemented that fee increase, effective August 1, 2017.
BCI has told NRA that the fee increase is suddenly necessary based on a five-year-old policy change by the FBI. Five years ago, the FBI reportedly decided that they would only accept fingerprint submissions electronically. Previously, BCI would mail fingerprint cards to the FBI for processing. With the FBI’s change five years ago, rather than mailing the cards, BCI now scans the cards and electronically transmits fingerprints to the FBI. BCI asserts that, in order to transmit the prints electronically to the FBI, they must first run the prints through their database.
