Hunter Lost His Gun In Domestic Tiff Reportedly

Hunter Lost His Gun In Domestic Tiff Reportedly — Joe Biden is pushing for gun control. Seriously? He can’t even get his family to do the responsible things 99.999 percent of legal gun owners do.

You heard about that right?

Yes, Hunter Biden and Joe’s daughter-in-law Hallie violated gun laws and common sense safety concerns after a domestic tiff.

Barry, Joe and Hunter

This occurred Oct. 23, 2018 near Wilmington.

Just be clear, Hallie was not Hunter’s wife. She was the widow of Biden’s other son Beau. Hallie was merely Hunter’s paramour. Playas like Hunter can expect tiffs with their mistresses, though, no matter how temporary.

Anyway, Hallie threw Hunter’s .38 caliber revolver into a trash can outside Janssen’s Market which is across from Alexis I. du Pont High School breaking numerous laws. Why did Hunter have a handgun anyway? For what it’s worth, he lied through his teeth on the ATF Form 4473 to get it.

See the part about Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?

Hunter is most certainly an unlawful user of controlled substances.

Anyway, the then former vice president apparently did his best to cover up for him. Secret Service agents were reportedly dispatched to the gun dealer, StarQuest Shooters & Survival Supply, and demanded the paperwork for the transaction from the owner Ron Palmieri.

Palmieri rightfully refused, but later turned over the papers to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, which is the proper authority.

The Secret Service claims it has no record of its agents investigating the issue which would have happened while Biden was preparing his presidential campaign.

Sure. We believe them. LOL.

Murt Quits Ammo Tax Bill

Murt Quits Ammo Tax Bill — The neo-feudalists who want to be our kings and queens are using the pandemic to try to sneak in a new law to make it harder for sane, law-abiding adults to defend themselves.

Murt Quits Ammo Tax Bill
Note that the prime sponsor withdrew his name.

The Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee received, March 10, House Bill 2344 which would require a  “permit to purchase” for ammunition, and tax all ammo purchases. 

The prime sponsor was Thomas Murt, a Republican who represents the 152 District, which consist of parts of Philadelphia and Montgomery counties.

Murt has withdrawn his name from the bill. That’s a good thing but the bill remains with 10 other solons backing it.

This bill is counter-productive to the problem it presumes to solve namely mass shootings and random acts of violence. What must be recognized and what its supporters deny is that it is good for sane, law abiding adults to have guns and ammunition, while it is bad for the insane and criminal to do so.

The bill is aimed solely at the sane and law-abiding. Hey sponsors, if you need a clue as to how to solve the problem consider that the United States had 450,000 more mental hospital beds in the 1950s that it does today with about half of the population.

If you want another clue, consider that mass school shootings in the United States didn’t start happening until those who rule us declared the start of life to be just a matter of opinion.

If you still need a clue, consider that murders in Philadelphia plummeted when the state overruled the city to give the residents the right to carry.

The bill is not likely to go anywhere.

“This unconstitutional legislation is an affront to every law-abiding gun owner in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” House Judiciary Committee, Chairman Rob Kauffman (R-89) said. “HB 2344 goes on the list of anti-Second Amendment legislation that will never see the light of day as long as I’m Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee in Pennsylvania.”

AR 15s or How To Panic Soccer Moms

AR 15s or How To Panic Soccer Moms — Now and then one finds oneself in a waiting room trapped with Today or Strahan, Sara & Keke or The Ellen DeGeneres Show and it dawns that there are people who actually watch this stuff regularly.

And it dawns that these are largely stay-at-home moms and that these shows are their source of information about politics and the world at large.

The realization then comes that this is why this demographic is voting for people who advocate policies that strip their freedoms and decrease their prosperity.

Ours too unfortunately.

So how do we convince these moms that they are being programmed, propagandized and otherwise lied to?

How do we make these moms understand that if they continue to vote the way the do they will have 1980s-level crime rates, permanent debt, children educated to be weak and submissive to authority and fashion, deliberate blackouts and general misery?

Let’s start with guns. Click on the above link regarding crime rates. Notice how the murders and meanness started dropping in the late 1990s? That’s when restrictions on the possession and use of firearms started being removed.

It’s not a coincidence.

But, but, but what about those scary AR 15s? It is estimated that there are between 8.5 million and 15 million semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines in private hands in the United States. These are mostly AR 15 and AK 47 style weapons.

In 2018, there were 297 murders committed with rifles, which would also include things like lever-action Winchesters and bolt-action .22s.

Even if all the rifles were AR 15s and AK 47s that would mean only .0003 percent of this type of weapon were used to commit a murder. You’d be more in danger going out for a boat ride as about 330 people drown annually in boating accidents according to the CDC.

Please understand you watchers of daytime propaganda that people who support gun rights are not bad people . They want peace and friendly neighbors and happy children just like you.

People who oppose political correctness are not racists, either. They are actually the opposite. People who support school choice are not anti-education.

“Conservatives” are not bad people. People who lie to you and manipulate you for their ends sorta are, though.

Try to understand why “conservatives” think as they do. More importantly try to understand why you think as you do.

Illegal Alien Murders Vs Rifles

Illegal Alien Murders Vs Rifles — Charlie Kirk makes a great point on Twitter to counter those seeking to restrict 2nd Amendment rights due to recent publicized shootings — as opposed to the far more frequent unpublicized shootings in places with strict gun control.

Illegal Alien Murders Vs Rifles

Charlie noted that there have been 403 deaths this year from being shot by rifles while ICE arrested over 2,000 illegal aliens with murder charges last year.

Why are Democrats more upset with rifles than illegals when illegals cause more deaths?

By the way, did you know that medical mistakes cause 250,000 deaths per year? Should we ban hospitals?

Our position is simple: Every sane, law abiding citizen should be encouraged to have a gun, including, no especially, an AR, and to vote. Every insane or criminally inclined person should be prevented from having a gun or voting.

Smoke that SJWs. Corrupt use of the ballot is just as destructive as corrupt use of the right to bear arms.

Gun Rights Mean Civil Rights; Call to Action

Gun Rights Mean Civil Rights; Call to Action — Defenders of the Second Amendment and self defense rights are being urged to attend hearings in Harrisburg, Sept. 24-25. Being considered are “red flag” laws which will allow gun confiscation without due process; “universal background checks” which is de facto universal gun registration; and bans for AR-15s which has become the best-selling rifle in America.

It is noted that paid corporate shills wearing red shirts will be in attendance.

The hearings will be 9 a.m. to noon, Sept. 24 and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sept. 25 before the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee in Capitol’s North Office Building, Hearing Room 1.

Frederick Douglass pointedly noted that a man’s rights rest in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

There are some who shouldn’t have access to guns, but they shouldn’t have the right to vote either. Ponder that “social justice” phonies.

This gun control push is not about making things safer — which all sane, law-abiding people desire — but about taking rights from sane, law-abiding people which will do anything but make things safer.

GOP Pushing Gun Grab In Pa.

GOP Pushing Gun Grab In Pa. — Virtue-Signaling Philly Suburban Republicans — Delco’s Tom Killion (R-9) in the Senate and Montco’s Todd Stephens (R-151) — have introduced bills that would arguably allow permanent loss of gun rights on the basis of mere allegations.

The bills SB 90 and HB 1075 would amend Titles 18 (Crimes and Offenses) and 42 (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes creating the category of Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO).

An ERPO would be a court order that would prohibit a person from having in the person’s possession or control, purchasing or receiving or attempting to purchase or receive, a firearm, based upon a finding that the person presents a risk of suicide or of causing the death of, or serious bodily injury to, another person.

Fine. So how does one get subject to such a thing?

Upon the word of a law enforcement officer or a family or household member. They tell a district judge that you considered suicide or were cruel to a dog or made a threat and you lose your rights, whether you did such a thing or not.

You really think a district judge is going to say no?

There is a duration limit to the ERPO — from three months to a year — but as  Joshua Prince points out the ERPO puts you in a federal database and that makes you subject to the feds which is in effect a life-long ban.

Here’s is the wording of the law: Entry into database.–Upon receipt of an extreme risk protection order or an order renewing, vacating or terminating an extreme risk protection order, the Pennsylvania State Police shall cause the order to be entered into the appropriate database so that notice of the order is provided through the Pennsylvania Instant Check System and the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

How about the termination part?

At a termination hearing, the respondent seeking termination of the order shall have the burden of proving, by clear and convincing evidence, that the respondent does not present a risk of suicide or of causing the death of, or serious bodily injury to, another person

So much for presumption of innocence.

We have some sympathy — or at least we would if we didn’t think they were pandering virtue-signalers — for those trying to deal with loons having access to guns.

We remember Sylvia Seegrist. We remember her mom desperately trying to get her help — and off the street.

The thing with Sylvia, though, is that she committed chargeable crimes such as assault, terroristic threats and vandalism before her murder spree but escaped prosecution due to the bizarre mental health theories of the time.

If ERPOs were based on the commission of crime for which one is charged as opposed to someone’s word, we’d back the concept.

By the way, most of the recent mass shooters could have been or had been charged with crimes before their killings that should have curtailed their access to guns. Nickolas Cruz had had numerous contacts with police, Devin Patrick Kelley had a record of domestic violence, Dylan Roof had drug and trespassing arrests etc.

Another point, gun rights are as important as voting rights. Some people should not be allowed to have a gun. These same people should not be allowed to vote.

Mass Shootings Thoughts And Prayers

Mass Shootings Thoughts and Prayers — The wishing of “thoughts and prayers” after  mass shootings is being mocked in some circles as simplistic to the point of being meaningless.

We have come to agree.

In fact, we think it as simplistic, meaningless and ineffective to wish “thoughts and prayers” as it is to blame access to guns  for the tragedies as is done in the same knee-jerk fashion by those who mock the wishing of “thoughts and prayers.”

In the 1980s, most states made it difficult for a private citizen to carry a hand gun. Gun rights activist made it an issue and today it is relatively easy to do so. The murder rate has been halved and sometimes in dramatic fashion.

This is what the activists predicted while their opponents loudly claimed things would get much worse.

So now we have the issue of mass shootings which have become a several-times a year occurrence.

Those who desire to disarm the sane and law-abiding cynically use them to advance their political cause.

We, however, think it is far more about culture than it is about having access to immaterial objects.

We have written several times about how school shootings started after abortion was declared a right. Correlation is not causation but correlations are something worth pointing out, and this correlation makes sense.

Teach that it is up to the individual to determine whether a human life exists, and, well, who is to judge if an individual chooses in a way other than you would?

How about the manner in which our society addresses the most important philosophical question: Why are we here?

We teach our young that our existence is but due to a mere sequence of random events. Our courts, in fact, forbid teaching that we are designed, despite the quite  reasonable inference of it being so.

Imagine someone being on a moral fence and being inculcated by society that he is but an accident of nature and he should “do as thy will”. Now, imagine that someone being inculcated that he was created to love his neighbor. Which message is most likely to send him to the good side of the fence?

We grant that even the right cultural message isn’t going to completely solve the problem. Limiting access to guns (and knives and cars) for those with objective psychological problems is important. Maybe this requires bringing back mental institutions.

Still, the Vegas and synagogue murderers would have passed the filter for sanity. The wise realize that perfect safety is a chimera, and that is why the sane and law-abiding need access to guns.

Sane Law Abiding Citizens Need Guns

Sane Law Abiding Citizens Need Guns — Why do sane law aiding citizens need guns? Sometimes the sane, law abiding citizen is in danger and he has only seconds but the deputy is four minutes away.

That is why sane, law abiding citizens need guns. The let-government-have-a-monopoly-on-everything crowd never lets a crisis go to waste.

Please keep the reality in mind and not the fiction being presented as news by the globalist-connected media. This is not about safety or protecting children. It’s about self-proclaimed elites controlling the lives of others not in their clique.

You have to rely on yourself and not the government to keep you and those you love safe.

That deputy is only human so please don’t hate him. Remember, though, government is made up entirely of humans and should be trusted only as much as you’d trust another human you barely know.

Gun Rights Equal Voting Rights, Sen. Toomey

Gun Rights Equal Voting Rights, Sen. Toomey — With the election safely over and a another six-year term guaranteed, Sen. Pat Toomey has returned to gun grabbing.

Gun Rights Equal Voting Rights, Sen. Toomey
Gun Rights Equal Voting Rights, Sen. Toomey

“Four years ago, 20 young children and six school employees were shot and killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School,” the Pennsylvania Republican said in a statement Dec. 14. “It was a terrible day for our country, and meeting some of the families of the victims was one of the most moving moments in my Senate career. These senseless killings also inspired me to work across the aisle on common sense gun safety legislation that upholds the Second Amendment while also making it harder for criminals and the dangerously mentally ill to purchase a firearm. I remain committed to this cause and look forward to working with Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) again next Congress on our background check proposal.”

OK, let’s be charitable. Maybe he really just wants to stop senseless killings and not take from average citizens the constitutional right to the means to defend themselves from cruel aggressors which is what politicians usually mean when they talk about “sensible” gun regulations.

So here is our suggestion for Sen. Toomey,  a litmus test if you will, for his “common sense” gun safety legislation: Equate gun rights with voting rights.

This means put in your bill that the criminals and mentally ill who should not be allowed to own guns should not be allowed to vote.

We dare you.

Handguns Stop Murders Proof

Handguns Stop Murders Proof — This article ran originally in 2015 but with the Democrats filling Philadelphia with shrieks for gun bans it is worth running again. By the way, Philadelphia’s murder rate is way, way down since the city was forced to allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed handguns.

In the days of old when knights were bold murder was pretty common. In 13th century Europe, the rate was 22.68 per 100,000 rising to 40.79 per 100,000 by the 15th century. Carlisle Moody: Handguns Stop Murders

It was as though every place in Europe was Chester, Pa. Well, maybe not that bad. Figure Detroit or New Orleans.

But then something happened. In the 16th century the rate tumbled back to 20.28 per 100,000.

Carlisle Moody of the College of William & Mary says that the year the trend changed was 1505 and what happened was the handgun, namely the wheel lock pistol which by that year had become common enough to make a social impact.

The pistol put the little guy (and gal) on a equal footing with the big, strong, armor-plated club/knife/ax wielding thug.

Moody says the likely inventor of this device was Leonardo Da Vinci which would make Leonardo the father of the handgun. Thank you Leonardo.

For what it’s worth, the authoritarian types didn’t like them from the beginning. The first gun control law happened in 1517 when Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I declared “Inasmuch as certain persons in our territories of Lower Austria are in the habit of carrying self-striking hand-guns that ignite themselves which we are on no account prepared to allow . . .our nobles, stewards, administrators, chief justices, mayors and judges should under no circumstances permit such guns to be carried.”

Still handguns didn’t disappear and the trend continued. In the 17th century the murder rate dropped big to 7.84 per 100,000. Moody says the big year was 1621 when the flintlock — which became the standard firearm for the next two centuries — entered general use.

Moody notes the cost of firearms was rarely prohibitive for the masses. In 1699, a pair of pistols cost 5 shillings or about $41 in today’s dollars.

The European murder rate continued to fall reaching 1.18 per 100,000 by the 20th century. In Britain, by 1920 it had fallen to .84 per 100,000. That was the year The Firearms Act was passed essentially ending the English right to bear arms. Since then the British murder rate has risen to 1.44 (as of 1999) and the assault rate has exploded from 2.39 per 100,000 to 419.29.

Some other tidbits: Moody says London had a homicide rate of .26 per 100,000 in the 1820s before the first world’s first police force was created in 1829. It now has a rate of 2.28 per 100,000.

Carlisle Moody notes that three out of every four murder victims before 1850 would have survived with today’s medicine. He says, however, even dividing by four would not affect the pattern regarding the previous century murder rates.

Moody’s paper can be found here. The math is there to back up his claims to other academics and doesn’t have to be followed to get his point.
