Various laws in New York ban firearms upon what amounts to appearance. From the NationalReviewOnline:

Pass a stupid law, get a stupid result. This, Clash Daily reports, is a remodeled AR-15, and it is legal in New York despite the state’s “assault weapons” ban. (see above)

HISSY FIT: The New AR-15 Design is Compliant with “SAFE Act” and Has Gun Control Activists Pouting
by Jonathan S., Guns-n-Freedom
Prototypes for the newly designed AR-15 are hitting gun shops across New York, as gun shops and machinists have designed a rifle that complies with the anti-gun law. At least one gun shop has received a letter from state police saying that the new AR-15 style rifles should be legal in the state as long as they don’t have some of the features that the law prohibits.
The new gun law bans all kinds of semi-automatic rifles that have been labeled with the “assault” term even though these are very common rifles and are no more powerful than the average hunting rifle.
Once again, proving that Leftists predicate all their actions but upon emotions. “Assault rifles” look mean — they look “bullying.”
A mind is a terrible thing to waste, is it not?

On the nauseating spectacle that is the State of the Union address
The annual State of the Union pageant is a hideous, dispiriting, ugly, monotonous, un-American, un-republican, anti-democratic, dreary, backward, monarchical, retch-inducing, depressing, shameful, crypto-imperial display of official self-aggrandizement and piteous toadying, a black Mass during which every unholy order of teacup totalitarian and cringing courtier gathers under the towering dome of a faux-Roman temple to listen to a speech with no content given by a man with no content, to rise and to be seated as is called for by the order of worship — it is a wonder they have not started genuflecting — with one wretched representative of their number squirreled away in some well-upholstered Washington hidey-hole in order to preserve the illusion that those gathered constitute a special class of humanity without whom we could not live.
It’s the most nauseating display in American public life — and I write that as someone who has just returned from a pornographers’ convention.
It’s worse than the Oscars.
Many times worse, I’d posit. Because it’s not about a number of so-called “artistes,” but about ONE MAN.
Imagine this: a speech made by an individual — in Salem, Oregon — in front of a large audience, off-the-cuff, extemporaneously, with no TelePrompter, consulting no notes. That in itself kicks Mr Obama to the proverbial Speech Curb.
And yet, in full view of her peers — the toughest audience of all — Tami Jackson kicks some major Second Amendment butt in front of the Oregon State Capitol.
With a semi-auto in hand.
Tami Jackson wishes to acknowledge the hard work and video skills of Dan Sandini, who has his own site here, at Daylight Disinfectant. He has a YouTube channel here. Mr Sandini has also done prior video work for Andrew Breitbart.
I recommend Tami Jackson’s commentary at the BlackSphere.net.
She works on the 405Radio, with an internet radio show.
Tami Jackson is a substitute host on the Bill Post Show as well.
Tami Jackson simply speaks the Truth.
[And thanks, Steve, for the h/t.]
From the ConservativePost.com:
If there has ever been a speech that everyone needs to see regarding Obama’s plan to take our guns, this is the one.
In this clip we see an Army veteran — Aaron Weiss (who serves as a police officer) — speak on the motion to repeal the “Safe Act” at the Dutchess County Legislature of New York State.
God bless men who still speak plainly and tell the truth. If he isn’t already, he should become a member of Oathkeepers. I am a member.
And yes; politicians have no courage. They would refuse to “stack up” because they leave those tasks to the Proles, the Groundlings, the Unwashed, the Serfs. They have no concept of honor, duty, courage, fidelity, forfeiture, responsibility. They exist to, these days, enrich their own pockets. The word politician is spoken with the same reverence as the words shit, garbage, useless, immoral, bankrupt, and liar. There are a few exceptions; a very few.
Politicians are the Elite and you are to be sacrificed when necessary to ensure their jobs and their re-election.
Why else would they be groomed, stroked, coddled, soothed, guarded by men and women with guns (which they would deny you!), encased in limousines, buffered by purposeful and misleading staffs, and ensconced in protected mansions in areas cordoned off from their electorate?
They are no longer of The People; they are separate from The People.
How many politicians do you hear of living on any street or boulevard called Martin Luther King in your community?
