Mayor Bloomberg supports pro-gun control platforms, donates $25,000 to Virginia state Senate candidates

Mayor Bloomberg supports pro-gun control platforms, donates $25,000 to Virginia state Senate candidates – Mayor Bloomberg is crossing state lines – and opening his wallet – in his latest salvo in his war to keep guns off city streets.  Bloomberg has donated $25,000 apiece to the campaigns of six Democratic candidates for the Virginia state Senate who share his strict beliefs on gun control, officials told the Daily News Friday.   The deep-pocketed mayor, who drew the ire of the Virginia attorney general when he ran gun stings there five years ago, will travel to Old Dominion to campaign for the candidates next week, the officials said.  What happens in the Virginia Legislature will directly affect the public safety of New Yorkers, said John Feinblatt, the mayor s Criminal Justice... read more

Record low support for gun control

Record low support for gun control – The Second Amendment has rebounded in the last half-century as support doubled since 1959, the Gallup poll reported. Nearly 3 out of every 4 Americans now opposes a ban on handguns — only 1 in four are for banning possession of a handgun. In 1959, 60% of Americans favored banning handguns — and only 36% opposed such an affront to the Second Amendment. The jump in support for handguns shows what an utter failure the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has been. Handgun use is up, yet gun homicides are down, contrary to what the Brady Campaign has preached for a... read more

Humane Society misses mark

Humane Society misses mark – It appears that most of the money raised by some animal rights groups is not spent on the animals they say they are trying to save.   The HumaneWatch.org, a project of Center for Consumer Freedom, released its 50-state report, “Not Your Local Humane Society,” highlighting the failure of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), a huge campaigner against hunting, to significantly share its multi-million dollar budget with local hands-on animal... read more

Nationwide Coalition of U.S. Mayors Calls on Congress to Reject Effort to Strip State Authority to Decide Who Can Carry Concealed, Loaded Guns in Public

Nationwide Coalition of U.S. Mayors Calls on Congress to Reject Effort to Strip State Authority to Decide Who Can Carry Concealed, Loaded Guns in Public – A coalition of more than 600 Republican, Democratic and Independent U.S. mayors today called on the Senate to reject efforts by gun lobby allies to quickly introduce and pass a measure that would override state laws determining who can carry concealed, loaded weapons in public places.  Legislation to impose national reciprocity for concealed weapon permits – called the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act (H.R. 822) – was marked up by the House Judiciary Committee last week and is expected to be approved by the House as early as next week.  Senators are expected to try to attach a nearly identical measure to must-pass bills now on the Senate docket, including a series of appropriations measures and defense authorization legislation to be considered in the coming... read more

Schneiderman Writes Harry Reid On Gun Conceal Act

Schneiderman Writes Harry Reid On Gun Conceal Act – Attorney General Eric Schneiderman wrote to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today to urge the Senate to reject the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act.  Schneiderman, the first-year Democratic attorney general, said the act would force states to abandon their own gun laws by allowing out-of-state visitors to carry concealed firearms based on their home state’s gun laws. So for a state like New York with tough gun laws, out-of-staters wouldn’t be bound by... read more

Rep. Gosar: Holder’s Alibi Shows He’s Lying or Useless

Rep. Gosar: Holder’s Alibi Shows He’s Lying or Useless – Attorney General Eric Holder should lose his job because his own statements on the Fast and Furious scandal show that he is either a liar or a failure, Rep. Paul Gosar tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview.   “He needs to resign,” the Arizona Republican said. “I don’t see there is a way here that facilitates good, conscientious oversight at the Department of Justice.   “If he had no oversight and he knew nothing about this, he was incompetent. If he knew about this, then he was lying — and that’s... read more

Issa Issues Subpoena to Holder in Fast and Furious Investigation – Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, sent a subpoena Wednesday to Attorney General Eric Holder as part of his investigation into the gun trafficking operation known as “Fast and Furious.”  “Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged,” the California Republican said in a statement. “The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago. It’s time we know the whole... read more
