Report: Guns Taken from Wrong People Under CA Confiscation Laws – Breitbart

guns-lots-of-guns-matrix-keanu-reeves-6001An Eyewitness News Investigates report shows that California’s 2007 gun confiscation law has resulted in guns being taken from the wrong people and, in some cases, laid out on the front porch “for neighbors to see.”Firearm confiscation is an outgrowth of the Armed and Prohibited Persons System (APPS), created in 2001. APPS lists prohibited gun owners as “felons, individuals with history of violence (domestic violence/restraining order) or severe mental illness, wanted persons.” Under the auspices of APPS, databases are cross-referenced to locate persons barred from gun possession. Then the guns of those people are confiscated in law enforcement sweeps.But according to Your Central Valley, some of the guns that have been confiscated were taken from people who should not have lost them. It cites the example of retired nurse Lynette Phillips in Upland, California.Phillips said she answered a knock on her door in 2013, only to be greeted by police who were there to take all the guns out of her home. She had been added to the APPS list because she voluntarily checked herself into a mental health facility after having “an adverse reaction while switching anti-depressant medications.” Phillips alleges that the nurse who interviewed her at the facility falsely documented that she was “suicidal,” thus landing her name on the prohibited gun owner roster.As a result, Phillips said, “All of her husband’s guns were confiscated, but not before being laid out on the front porch for neighbors to see.”In addition to Phillips’ experience, Eyewitness News also found that Bakerfield’s Michael Merritt had 18 guns confiscated from him over “a felony charge from the 1970’s that no longer exists.” Merritt said, “I almost fainted and passed out when they said they wanted all of my guns.”Phillips and her husband got their guns back, as did Merritt, but the California Department of Justice would not provide Eyewitness News with any list of how many mistakes have been made or how many guns have been confiscated and not returned under questionable circumstances.On the other side of the coin are those who wonder why it takes the California Department of Justice so long to react to people who are on the list of prohibited gun owners. How can people the state considers dangerous be allowed to own guns for months before receiving a knock at their door while Lynette Phillips and others have their guns taken away, if only temporarily?AWR Hawkins is the Second Amendment columnist for Breitbart News and political analyst for Armed American Radio.

The News Media and the RNC are at it Again – Editorial

Plato_250On Saturday February 6, 2016 there will be another GOP debate hosted by ABC News and the Republican Party. All of the candidates will be there for the show. All that is except Carly Fiorina she has been left out. That’s right Carly will not be there. You see the news media and the RNC decided that her numbers are not high enough for a slot on the stage, even though she finished 7th in the Iowa Caucus. She finished ahead of John Kasich and Chris Christie and they will be there but she’s being left out. I find this despicable.

If you think what the Ted Cruz camp did to Ben Carson was bad this is beyond that. ABC and the RNC are denying you, the voter, the chance to hear from all of the candidates. Talk about election rigging. If I were one of the candidate’s I would refuse to attend if she is left out. This is not a game that the news media and the RNC can manipulate.

We, the American people, have the right to hear from all of the people who are running for President. It is not up to these elites to censor those running. I’m sure that if it was Trump all hell would be breaking out. This is totally unacceptable. Either you report the news or get the heck out of the news business. I guess ABC stands for All About Clinton.

Christians “Should be Eradicated”: Researchers Document Anti-Christian Agenda Among Powerful Elite

Mount Soledad CrossA student is punished for refusing to “stomp on Jesus,” a Christian baker faces a year in jail for refusing to cater faux marriages, two men are arrested for reading the Bible aloud near a government building, a school “purges” Christian works from its library. Critics asserting the existence of an institutional anti-Christian bias, and a resultant war on the faith, have often been labeled paranoid. But now two University of North Texas sociologists have produced research showing that just such an agenda exists — among America’s most powerful people.Professors George Yancey and David Williamson shared their findings in their newly released book So Many Christians, So Few Lions: Is There Christianophobia in the United States? The researchers say that while Christianophobia — which the sociologists define as “unreasonable hatred or fear of Christians” — isn’t common among common people, it does characterize those in the upper echelons of American society. It’s intense, too. The book’s title was apparently inspired by elitist interviewees lamenting how there were “so few lions,” referencing the Roman Empire’s practice of throwing Christians into an arena to be slaughtered by the wild cats. One respondent even remarked that Christians “should be eradicated without hesitation or remorse.”ULINE Shipping SuppliesHuge Catalog! Over 30,000 Products. Same Day Shipping from 11 Locationswww.ULINE.comThis is something about which Christians “should be concerned,” reports the Christian Post, on a warning Yancey issued in an e-mail interview, “because those with ‘Christianophobia’ tend to be powerful elites with influence in certain important areas, such as higher education.” Commenting on this and the professors’ motivation for conducting their research, Yancey told the Post, “There is a lot of literature on hostility toward many different groups but just about none on hostility toward Christians. Yet when we collected qualitative data from cultural progressive activists we quickly saw some of the unnecessary vitriol and fears within many of our respondents. We also saw the social status of those who exhibited this hatred and many of them would be in positions that allowed them to at least subtly act on their anger and fears.” As for the sources of their data, the Post writes that it “comes from a large national survey, the American National Election Survey, and interviews they conducted with members of liberal advocacy organizations.”And some of the remarks made by the “cultural progressive activists” are eyebrow-raising. The Blaze reports on a sampling referencing the “Christian right”:“I want them all to die in a fire.” (Male, aged 26-35 with Doctorate).“They should be eradicated without hesitation or remorse. Their only purpose is to damage and i

E-quitting : McGill Reporter

E-CigarettesAlthough the holidays may seem like a distant memory, statistically speaking, most of us are still sticking with our New Year’s resolutions. (For now. Let’s not talk about how many of us last until July.) For many, that means quitting smoking — and they’re hoping that electronic cigarettes will help. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of all American smokers have tried e-cigarettes to help them kick the habit. But Dr. Mark Eisenberg wants to know: Is vaping really the magic ticket to breathing free and easy? Dr. Eisenberg is passionate about getting people to butt out. He gives a lot of smoking cessation talks — just last month, he spoke at the Jewish General Hospital, where he is staff cardiologist — and has noticed that, invariably, reformed smokers come up to him afterward to sing the praises of e-cigarettes, those increasingly popular handheld battery-operated vaporizers that mimic conventional cigarettes. “This is just a first step,” says Dr. Mark Eisenberg of his five-year study.” But the fact is that smoking is still the single most reversible cause of mortality in Canada — so it’s an important first step.” “They say, ‘I smoked for decades and I’ve tried everything — nicotine gum, patches, Zyban, Champix — and I couldn’t stop. Then I picked up an e-cigarette and I never smoked again,’” recalls Eisenberg, who is also a professor in McGill’s Faculty of Medicine and director of the Joint MD/PhD program. “Anecdotally, we have many, many cases like this.” What doctors don’t have, however, is hard data to back it up. That’s why,

A Quick Fact Sheet of the Cruz-Carson Controversy

Ted_CruzFor those of you who haven’t had time to research the details of the recent brouhaha between Ben Carson and Ted Cruz, here’s a quick rundown of the facts.Monday, February 1 – Carson’s campaign announced that he would be delivering his post-caucus speech before the caucus results came in and then would immediately fly not to New Hampshire but rather to his home in Florida. This is how campaigns usually signal their candidate is about to drop out of the race.Monday, February 1, 6:29 p.m. – Marco Rubio supporter Conrad Close tweeted, “Rubio campaign pushing the narrative hard that Carson is dropping out. Obviously looking to pick up votes from Carson.”Monday, February 1, 6:43 to 44 p.m. – CNN went on the air with the report Carson was flying to Florida immediately after the caucuses and thereafter would not be going to New Hampshire or South Carolina to campaign but rather would be attending the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, February 4.Monday, February 1, 6:43 p.m. – Simultaneously with the start of CNN’s broadcast announcement that Carson was going home, CNN reporter Chris Moody tweeted Carson’s campaign was now stating he would remain in the race after the caucuses.Monday, February 1, 6:44 to 6:57 p.m. – Carson became “furious” at the report he was dropping out of the race and talked to his business manager Armstrong Williams and possibly other staffers, ordering them to quash the rumor. He retweeted a staffer’s tweets stating he was staying in the race.Monday, February 1, 6:57 p.m. – Time reporter Tessa Berenson tweeted, “Im with Carson now, “I’m going home to get some fresh clothes,” he says.”Monday, February 1, 6:58 p.m. – PBS reporter Lisa Desjardin tweeted Carson was not dropping out of the race but returning to Florida “to get more clothes.”Monday, February 1, 6:59 p.m. – Washington Post reporter Bob Costa tweeted he had just received a call from Armstrong Williams notifying him Carson was not dropping out.Monday, February 1, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. – During the course of speeches as part of the caucus procedure, one or more Cruz precinct captains may have stated Carson was going home after the caucuses and possibly also that he might be about to drop out of the race. The details are disputed.Monday, February 1, 7:20 – While the caucuses were in session, Cruz supporter Iowa Congressman Steve King tweeted, “Carson looks like he is out. Iowans need to know before they vote.”Monday, February 1, 8:28 p.m. – While the caucuses continued, MSNBC reporter Benjy Sarlin tweeted an official statement from Carson’s communications director stating Carson was not dropping out of the race but rather returning to Florida to “get a fresh set of clothes.”Monday, February 1, 8:49 p.m. – Tessa Berenson tweeted that Ben Carson was accusing Cruz’s campaign of dirty tricks for stating it looked as if Carson might be leaving the race.Tuesday, February 2 – Ted Cruz apologized to Carson for the mistake, adding, “Last night when our political team saw the CNN post saying that Dr. Carson was not carrying on to New Hampshire and South Carolina, our campaign updated grassroots leaders just as we would with any breaking news story. That’s fair game. What the team then should have done was send around the follow-up statement from the Carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race when that came out.”Tuesday, February 2 – Carson responded to Cruz’s apology by stating, “As a Christian I will accept the apology.” However, as a presidential candidate he apparently did not accept it, for he went on to repeat his demand that one or more Cruz staffers be fired.February 1-3 – News organizations continued to express amazement at Carson’s decision to take a break from the campaign in order to go home and get more clothes, something that is unprecedented among presidential candidates during active campaigns

January 2016 Breaks Murder Record for Gun-Controlled Chicago – Breitbart

gunThere were 51 murders in heavily gun-controlled Chicago in January 2016, thereby surpassing the previous record of 45 in January 2000.Moreover, according to USA Today, 51 murders is a sharp increase over the 29 murders that Chicago recorded in January 2015 and the 20 murders recorded the January before that.If we look at all shootings—rather than isolating the fatal ones—the failure of gun control is even more evident, because there was a total of “241 shooting incidents” during January 2016. That is up more than 100 percent over January 2015, when there were a total of “119 [shooting] incidents.”On January 1, the Chicago Tribune reported a total of 2,986 shooting victims in Chicago for all of 2015. The total number of murders is 468.All of this is happening in a city with an “assault weapons” ban, a “violence tax” that raises the price of every gun and bullet sold at retail, that limits the number of gun stores and the locations of those stores, and, what the New York Times describes as, handgun restrictions that let city leaders “get as close as they could get legally to a ban without a ban.”AWR Hawkins is a Second Amendment columnist for Breitbart News and political analyst for Armed American Radio.

Europe’s Muslim rape epidemic

islamic-jihad_1When 850,000 so-called “refugees” – mostly male Muslims – stormed the borders of Europe earlier this year, a looming rape crisis was predictable from the start.What happened in the microcosm of Rotherham, England, between 1997 and 2013 should have been still fresh in the minds of the public and the officials who resettled the mostly Sunni populations in Germany, France, England, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Finland and Switzerland – all of which experienced a 2016 New Year’s Eve nightmare of sexual assaults.Europe obviously did not embrace the lessons of Rotherham.I commend everyone to read the report of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham. It’s not easy reading, but too few obviously did in Europe prior to the so-called “refugee” invasion of 2015.The report found, by what is termed a “conservative estimate,” that 1,400 children were sexually exploited in the 16-year period in the town of about 250,000.They were all victims of what were called “Asian” gangs – Pakistani Muslims. In more than a third of the cases, children

Migrant mess: Scared Germans want guns, allowed signal pistols

gunTerrified Germans are looking for firearms for protection against incoming migrants, but the law requires them to jump through bureaucrat hoops just to obtain gas cartridge guns or signal pistols.German specialty weapons shops are allegedly selling three times as many alarm, gas and signal guns than usual. The report comes just two months after the German website Focus said the nation was experiencing shortages of pepper spray.“People no longer feel safe, otherwise they would not be buying so many products here,” a pistol seller in North-Rhine Westphalia told Deutsche Welle on Wednesday.The businessman attributed the spike in interest to a slew of sexual assaults in Cologne, Bielefeld, Duesseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Stuttgart on New Year’s Eve. Over 100 sex attacks were reported in Cologne alone. The wave overwhelmed its police force and the national media refused to cover the scandal for four days.Deutsche Welle said citizens are now lauding the U.S. for its Second Amendment now that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to accept 1.1 million has backfired.“Carrying arms is also necessary in Germany, because our police can no longer protect us from burglars,” said an elderly man who applauded American gun rights, the website reported.

Obama Administration and UN Announce Global Police Force to Fight ‘Extremism’ In U.S. – Breitbart

un_logoOn Wednesday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced at the United Nations that her office would be working in several American cities to form what she called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), a law enforcement initiative that would encompass the globe.This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself – without any consultation of Congress at all.The United Nations is a sharia-compliant world body, and Obama, speaking there just days ago, insisted that “violent extremism” is not exclusive to Islam (which it is). Obama is redefining jihad terror to include everyone but the jihadists. So will the UN, driven largely by the sharia-enforcing Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the pro-Islamic post-American President Obama, use a “global police force” to crush counter-jihad forces?After all, with Obama knowingly aiding al-Qaeda forces in Syria, how likely is it that he will use his “global police force” against actual Islamic jihadists? I suspect that instead, this global police force will be used to impose the blasphemy laws under the sharia (Islamic law), and to silence all criticism of Islam for the President who proclaimed that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”What is a global police force doing in our cities? This is exactly the abdication of American sovereignty that I warned about in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America. The Obama Department of Justice made it clear that it was exactly that when it distributed a press release last week announcing the “Launch of Strong Cities Network to Strengthen Community Resilience Against Violent Extremism.” In that press release, the DoJ complained that “while many cities and local authorities are developing innovative responses to address this challenge, no systematic efforts are in place to share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale.”
