Odds ‘n Sods:


Just as I warned you, the “compromise” has begun: Tommey-Manchin Sellout Bill Is Worse Than Feinstein Gun Ban. Please contact you senators and emphatically tell them how you feel about this amendment and while you are at it, please tell them where they stand on : A.) All other gun legislation, B.) the upcoming immigration amnesty bill (a lot of the same bad actors getting into Deep Schumer, on this one), and C.) Senate ratification of the UN Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) treaty. In related news: Reid’s Gun Control Bill Makes a Missing Firearm a Ticket to Five Years in Prison. Reader B.B. sent this: Senate “background checks” are anything but; ban anyone but owner from touching gun at almost any time. Take two minutes to watch a warning from Senator Lee. Update: More sneaky Schumer: The text of the draft bill includes this: “”(B) pursuant to an advertisement, posting, display or other listing on the Internet or in a publication by the transferor of his intent to transfer, or the transferee of his intent to acquire, the firearm.” So we won’t be able to advertise private party sales in ANY publication. That means we cane kiss goodbye newspaper ads, Gun List, and The Shotgun News, too. This is truly bad, unconstitutional legislation that goes FAR beyond the intent of the Commerce Clause. Since when is an intrastate private party sale of used merchandise “Interstate.” It just isn’t!

King of Fearmongers: Morris Dees and the Southern Poverty Law Center, scaring donors since 1971. [JWR’s Comment: Among others who have been erroneously targeted, the SPLC has personally attacked me. (I’m SurvivalBlog’s Editor.) I can tell you that there is nothing quite like being hated by an “anti-hate” pressure group–especially when I once held a Top Secret security clearance (now lapsed) and I am outspokenly anti-racist, pro-Israel, and pro-South Sudan. And, needless to say, there is a well-documented strong correlation between the SPLC’s lists and the lists that are compiled by intelligence fusion centers. And those watch lists can be accessed by the terminals in individual police and state patrol cruisers. I can only wonder what their watch lists have to say about me. I feel like I’ve been set up to eventually be included on a higher-level watch list (such as TIDE or TSDB) or some “No Fly” list or perhaps even get shot by some overly zealous or overly nervous trooper. Gee, Thanks, Mr. Dees.]
