"totus's" crusade to stir up the unhinged in the U.S. to create civil unrest had a sliver of success in LV yesterday!
The left-wing lame stream moron media is doing all they can to make this a "black eye" for the Taxed Enough Already movement!
Then here come the whack-jobs neighbors babbling about how this buffoon blathered about killing cops and making anti-government threats! Heaven forbid the whack job had swastikas in his apartment, like that is a symbol of the Taxed Enough Already movement?????
It didn't take the moron media long to dig up these dirt bags!
If the whack job was babbling about killing cops why didn't the moron media ask the dirt bags why thwy never notified the authorities?????????????????????


TAKE IT TO THE BANK!!!!!
Later, Bill Koski

Gun Maker Thrives in SC, Issues Gun to Commemorate Move from CT
PTR Industries was leaving Connecticut for the greener and more gun-friendly pastures of South Carolina. On June 18 Breitbart News sat down with PTR Industries vice president of sales and administration John McNamara, so he could update us on where his gun company--which builds roller-lock rifles--stands in relation to South Carolina and firearm production.

A new study finds that an increase in concealed carry permits has accompanied a decrease in murder. (AP)


A dramatic spike in the number of Americans with permits to carry concealed weapons coincides with an equally stark drop in violent crime, according to a new study, which Second Amendment advocates say makes the case that more guns can mean safer streets.
The study by the Crime Prevention Research Center found that 11.1 million Americans now have permits to carry concealed weapons, up from 4.5 million in 2007. The 146 percent increase has come even as both murder and violent crime rates have dropped by 22 percent.



“When you allow people to carry concealed handguns, you see changes in the behavior of criminals," said the center’s president, John R. Lott, a Fox News contributor. “Some criminals stop committing crimes, others move on to crimes in which they don’t come into contact with victims and others actually move to areas where they have less fear of being confronted by armed victims.”
“When you allow people to carry concealed handguns, you see changes in the behavior of criminals." - John R. Lott, Crime Prevention Research Center

Increasing gun ownership, litigation and new state laws have all contributed to the rise in concealed carry permits. In March, Illinois became the 50th state to begin issuing concealed weapons permits. But the cost and other requirements for obtaining the permits varies greatly, from South Dakota, where a permit requires $10, a background check and no training, to Illinois, where the cost of obtaining a permit comes to more than $600 when the fee and cost of training programs are taken into account.
Six states don’t require a permit for legal gun owners to conceal their weapons, and Lott notes those states have some of the lowest violent crime rates in the nation.
The real measure of the deterrent effect of concealed carry permits, according to Lott, is not laws on the books, but the percentage of a given state’s population that holds the permits. In 10 states, more than 8 percent of adults hold concealed carry permits, and all are among the states with the lowest crime rates. Lott claims his group’s analysis shows that each one percentage point increase in the adult population holding permits brings a 1.4 percent drop in the murder rate.
“We found that the size of the drop [in crime] is directly related to the percentage of the population with permits,” Lott said.
Between 2007 and the preliminary estimates for 2013, murder rates have fallen from 5.6 to 4.4 per 100,000.
Tod Burke, a former police officer and a professor of criminal justice at Radford University, in Radford, Va., said he doesn’t buy the idea that gun permits are driving the reduction in crime. Burke said several factors, including smarter, “data-driven” policing and increased incarceration of violent criminals likely play a bigger role.
“I think we have to be cautious about having a causal relationship between gun permits and a decrease in crime,” Burke said. “[Lott’s] theory is one to consider, but not to the exclusion of others.”
The report is the first tally of concealed carry permit holders since a survey in 2011 by the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that 8 million Americans held them.
The total of 11,113,013 Americans who currently hold concealed carry permits represents 4.8 percent of the total adult population. But the center stated that the number of concealed carry permit holders is likely much higher, because numbers are not available for all states that issue permits, such as New York. Additionally, four states and the majority of Montana do not require that residents have a concealed handgun permit to carry within the state, so the number of residents who carry a concealed weapon is not recorded.
Florida has the most active concealed carry permits, at nearly 1.3 million. Texas is second, at just more than 708,000, while Hawaii, at 183, has the fewest of states whose data was available.
Earlier this year, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that California must allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed firearms in public, striking down the core of the state's permit system for handguns. The judges found in a 2-1 holding that San Diego County’s rule that residents must show "good cause" -- and not merely the desire to protect themselves -- to obtain a concealed-weapons permit, violated their constitutional rights.
That ruling is awaiting an en banc review by the entire circuit.

The problem is clear. Not ENOUGH gun control! We need more laws on the books. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of law makers, the previous attempts were ill-conceived and ineffective (gasp). Even though our brightest, best educated, church going, family values politicians were convinced they had solved the problem. Doh.

Along these same lines of evermore constrictive individual rights is motorcycle helmet laws. It is a constant fight against busy-body law makers (read Nancy Polosi types) at state and federal level to keep them from "helping" those of us too dumb to think for ourselves. But now I see there was a non-binding UN resolution to make everybody thorough-out the world wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle. This new world order thing is going to get bad in the years to come. Regarding helmet laws, a good rule of thumb is "let those who ride decide". Now how easy would that be?

Firearms enthusiasts crash gun buyback to hunt bargains

A recent gun buyback event in Oregon, aimed at curbing the number of weapons on the street, turned into a planned profit making opportunity for a group of firearms enthusiasts.

The Jan. 17 event was co-sponsored by Central Coast Ceasefire Oregon and the Newport Police Department, who offered gift cards to superstore Fred Meyer in return for guns, no questions asked. A sliding scale meant assault rifles fetched $175 gift cards each, and high capacity magazines were worth $25 credits at the store, which ironically sells firearms.

Second Amendment supporters took to OpenCarry.org’s forum to spread the word about the event, and to plan out their attendance to make maximum profit.
