Attorney General Eric Holder Stepping Down

So U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is stepping down from his position. You might even be tempted to ask the question why, when President Obama seemingly won’t even flinch, in the face of egregious scandals that Eric Holder will never get to the bottom of. Fast and Furious comes to mind, being that it appears to be the reason, behind the departure.

Judicial Watch just won their court case to obtain DOJ Fast and Furious documents:

Of course:

More Signs Of Bad Big Government

The Federal government seems to think it’s acceptable to fine people $1000 for taking pictures on public land. Under the auspices of protecting wildlife from commercial use. You want to take pictures of that doe during your camping or fishing trip for your blog? Have you ever though about placing adds on it? Well, to the current regime, you may be exploiting wildlife.

“Obama’s Database for Fundamentally Transforming America”

J. Christian Adams writes about “Catalyst” at PJ Media. This is the database that Obama and company use to micro-target potential constituents.

From the article he writes:

Similarly, the data feeding the central Catalist database are coming from a wide swath of sources. Public records, pollsters, campaigns, non-profits, activist groups, unions, parties, commercial data — scores and scores of sources are feeding the central database data.

For example, when an environmental group does neighborhood door knocking for cash, the results of those contacts are fed into Catalist.

You have your own individual voter file in Catalist. Everyone does. Under that file might be a massive amount of information about you — more than probably exists in any other database in the world. Whom you work for, what car you might drive, donations you have made…

So in effect, any contact by those feeding the database, or public information on a citizen voter, can and will go in the database. Catalyst points to how the left has no problem, building a database on citizens, while collaborating with all like minded political allies. If you feed the database you can become a customer of it.

Could it be used to micro-target and intimidate political opposition? Does it contain gun owner data?

Bill Gates Is Attacking The Second Amendment

Microsoft elitists are ganging up on our Second Amendment rights. They apparently have money to burn, and so they decide to donate millions, to foist a measure in Washington state that mandates “universal background checks.” Bill Gates and his wife are the latest anti-gun elitists, spending a million, pushing Initiative 594 which does just that.

This bill means that all transfers, even loaning a handgun to family, requires the mandatory DROS paperwork and a background check. Which stifles Second Amendment freedom. Mandatory background checks mean that gun owners get registration up front. Registration leads to confiscation. Because the only reason for registration of firearms is their confiscation. Otherwise it wouldn’t be important to gun prohibitionists.

From NRA-ILA:

As a result of an in-depth debate between the National Rifle Association and the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR), the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs (WACOPS) has joined the Washington State Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association (WSLEFIA) in opposing the 18-page gun control measure, Initiative 594, on the Washington ballot this fall.

CA: Gun Waiting Period Laws Ruled Unconstitutional

California’s 10 day waiting period was just ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge today. It’s looking like if you already own a gun bought recently in California, and you pass a background check, there is no grounds to make you wait 10 days. Thanks to the Plaintiffs Jeffrey Silvester and Brandon Combs, as well as the Calguns Foundation and the Second Amendment Foundation.

NRA Addresses Anti-gun Michael Bloomberg with “Insult”

In the latest video by the NRA, Michael Bloomberg is the latest topic. Some in the media would call it, “getting personal,” but I would call it telling it like it is. The man is spending his wealth doing everything he can to destroy our Second Amendment. He must be addressed.

MD: Federal Judge Rules AR-15s “Dangerous and Unusual”

Once again, an anti-gun leaning judge makes a bad ruling, that causes harm to citizen gun owners. U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake has ruled that she doesn’t believe the most popular rifles in the nation are commonly used, and that so called assault weapons, “fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual arms,” which is as preposterous as it sounds.

“Upon review of all the parties’ evidence, the court seriously doubts that the banned assault long guns are commonly possessed for lawful purposes, [...]“

Who does the judge think she’s kidding? Thankfully you can bet the ruling, in Kolbe et al v. O’Malley et al, will be challenged.

LAPD Downplaying Violent Crime Statistics

In this story the Los Angeles Times, brings to light something that should make residents, very unhappy with their police handlers. The Los Angeles Police Department misclassified 1,200 violent crimes as minor offenses. Which is something to think about when mayors say “Our crime rates are at levels not seen since the 1950s.”

Victory in Palmer v. D.C., Ban On Carry Unconstitutional

This opinion was handed down today, Saturday, and what good news it is.

In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional.
