At a time when we in the United States find the Second Amendment challenged on any number of levels, most certainly in blue states like Fornicalia, and when any number of citizens in Europe wish they had their own version of the Second Amendment, there comes the occasional federal ruling chalked up into the “win” column.
Federal court strikes down DC anti-concealed carry law
by Josh Delk
A federal appeals court reportedly ruled on Tuesday that a Washington, D.C., law requiring people to prove they have “proper reason” for a concealed-carry gun permit is unconstitutional.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that the law, which requires people to show “proper reason to fear injury” in order to carry a firearm, is unconstitutional and a violation of D.C. residents’ Second Amendment rights.
Let’s remember this, shall we? The DC Court of Appeals is the secondmost powerful courtin the nation, directly behind SCOTUS.
According to the law, acceptable reasons to get a permit included jobs that required employees to protect valuables or if an individual had been threatened.
Hello? Earth to Common Sense? For once we appear to be communicating.
(CNN) At least 19 people were killed and 26 injured in a stabbing spree at a facility for disabled people west of Tokyo, making it one of Japan’s deadliest mass killings since World War II. Nine men and 10 women, ranging in age from 18 to 70, were killed in the attack.
Officer Satomi Kurihara of the Sagamihara Fire Department confirmed the death toll at the Tsukui Yamayuri-en facility in Sagamihara, a residential area approximately 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of the capital.
Satoshi Uematsu, a 26-year-old who worked at the facility until February, broke in through a window about 2 a.m. Tuesday (1 p.m. ET Monday), Kanagawa Prefecture officials said at a news conference.
Because, as we all know — and Leftists know this best of all — if we eliminate firearms wholesale, then violence will simply plummet and go away. All will be well with the world, birds will sing, clouds will part and the sun will shine.
“What’s the frequency, Kenneth?” Dan Rather knows.
Yes, Leftists are in fact that naive. Logic and the nature of humanity, as I’ve written before, eludes the deluded.
The following table shows the number and percent of murder victims in the United States by the cause of death. Weapons used or cause of death include guns, stabbing, blunt objects, strangulation, arson, and more.

But let’s stop dancing around the issue of “gun control.” Let’s get down to brass tacks: Demorats and Leftists want out-and-out gun confiscation. Make no mistake about that. Hillary Clinton and all other power elites have their own private police forces. You don’t. They have “theirs” and that is all they care about.
When you get down to it, Leftists and Demorats will only be satisfied when there exists the complete removal of firearms from American citizens. The outright trampling of the Second Amendment. What’s left? Tire irons? Knives?
But here’s one thing you won’t be able to do with a knife or a rock or a lamp or a baseball bat or a torch or a pitchfork: defend yourself against a government. Oppose oppressive government regimes. Governments, all governments, our government, will always be armed with heavy, military grade weapons. Historically, our Second Amendment does not exist to allow Americans to hunt. That’s a ridiculous claim when made by anyone. The Second Amendment exists in America in order to resist tyranny in any form and that includes an over-reaching government, foreign or domestic.
Demorats and Leftists are not grounded in reality. They are only versed in power and money. The citizenry can be armed or it can be disarmed. Those who are disarmed are called Proles, Serfs, Groundlings, Commoners.
In the meantime, criminals will still commit crimes, the mentally unstable will still be unstable, and Leftists will still be unable to grasp these fundamental concepts.
[ Apologies for the lack of current posts. Personal issues. — BZ ]
The US is not learning from the radical wave of Islam that is thundering across Europe right now and, of course, it is having its own effects here.
I’m referencing the San Bernardino shootings from December of last year by Muslims and most recently the Orlando gay bar mass shooting on Saturday night/Sunday morning in Florida. This Islamic fuck — whose name isn’t warranted printing here on my blog — now holds the “record” for the number of persons killed in one US mass shooting, at 49 murdered and 53 wounded. (Except for Antietam, where roughly 22,000 persons were killed in one day, American vs American, and perhaps Wounded Knee.)
The wife of this piece of shit was a clear accomplice and should be charged as a co-conspirator to murder. She knew that, on June 4th and 5th, he purchased a 9mm handgun and an AR-15 rifle. She knew how false he was. Of what his dogma truly consisted. You cannot live together and now know, unless you are continents away. They were not. She knew his heart. She knew what he was. And what he wasn’t. Specifically, she knew about the attack.
Oh, but wait. It was not an AR-15 the Islamic fuck possessed. It was a Sig Sauer MCX carbine which shares no major parts with an AR-15. At all. The MCX also Of course, how can you fault the American Media Maggots? Everything, as you well know, is an AR-15. This is no mistake, naturally. This is called a narrative.
Clue into this, Leftists: again, like the bulk of most recent shootings in the US, he was in compliance with the current gun laws for the area. Further, he was a security operator for a company that held a contract with the federal government. He not only had to pass local security laws for possession of various weapons — as a security operator that guarded federal facilities — but had to pass federal background checks.
Further, the FBI conducted two separate investigations into the suspect. They found nothing. They cleared him. They met with him three times.
We — the United States — we are not learning.
The Muslim fuck was working for a multi-national security company that employs about 625,000 people with many contracts to the US federal government. A “security company” can range from someone guarding a parking lot to persons providing specialized security for special ops American forces on the ground — as with those highlighted in the “13 Hours of Benghazi.”
With these contracts, the federal government required a security backgrounding of every employee. Both sides failed to report. The Muslim fuck had two gun licenses. One was for the rifle — the “AR-15” — and it is unlikely he would have acquired these licenses had his employer known of the FBI investigation. They proscribe even “contact” with the FBI.
[ Hillary Clinton, as an aside, is wrong again as the bint she is. The “AR-15” she falsely said was involved is not a “weapon of war.” It is a rifle. It shoots semi-automatically. It is in fact used by hunters. What she really objects to, like most Leftists, is that it has odd bits and angles that make it, with its black color, appear to be completely sinister in their over-imaginative minds. ]
The FBI concluded it lacked sufficient evidence to go forward with even what they call a “preliminary investigation.” But whatever they found out about him, they should have told his employer. In that they failed.
Let me repeat for the abundant Leftists amongst you here and now: the Islamic fuck Omar Mateen (okay, sorry) passed every background check required by the state and by the federal government. He was never “institutionalized” as well. But there’s more; just wait a few paragraphs.
Captain Obvious: the bar was a “No Gun Zone.” Right. Larfs all around. But nothing works against a gun like? Right. Another gun.
Columbine, Newtown. All of these mass killings took place where the government prohibited people from protecting themselves. A “gun free zone” is like shooting fish in a barrel. Gays or not.
A LE axiom: when an assailant is confronted sooner rather than later, lives are saved. Period.
Leftists immediately jumped to gun control. And the American Media Maggots helped to buttress that so-called “argument.”
There was no call from the Oval Office to Orlando. Party politics. Leftist Obaka to Republican Governor Rick Scott. Didn’t happen.
There is no doubt that the Muslim fuck was motivated by Islam. His father was a supporter of the Taliban. The Muslim fuck himself cheered when planes struck the WTC on 9/11. Inspire magazine exists to, eh, “inspire” after all.
On the other hand, it could be clear that the Muslim fuck was sexually confounded. He could have been trying to resolve various homosexual issues that he finally applied to the Pulse gay bar.
I suspect there were a number of motivators of the Muslim fuck.
I suspect that he was conflicted with his own personal sexuality. I suspect that he realized the inherent conflict that exists in the Middle East — a conflict that very few persons seem willing to address in the Western Media. That is to say, the conflict that exists between small boys and older men.
In the ME form of Islam it does not seem to be disagreeable that small boys are penetrated anally for sexual satisfaction.
US soldiers in ME assignments realize this rather rapidly: “women are for procreation, and boys are for fun.”
For some deviant reason, in the ME form of Islam, this is not considered a form of pederasty. Only when one transitions from boys to men is buggery considered verboten by Islam. And by that the Islamic fuck found himself conflicted. He was not attracted by boys.
He liked men. He hated America. He may have been spurned in conflict of his religion. It only takes one blowjob to make someone a “homosexual.” And that appellation of “homosexual” is completely unacceptable in Islam.
As a conflicted homosexual, to attack a gay bar would solve the bulk of his problems. It would resolve his unstated sexuality, and it would place him into a place of importance within Islam. Let’s kill gays.
But instead of Islam or violence or philosophy, instead, according to Obama and his sycophants, it’s all about guns.
If guns were the issue, then what about Belgium? What about France? What about the UK? What about California? These locations all have the strictest gun control imaginable. California has the strongest, most constrictive laws on the books of any state — and they are creating even more.
And yet it’s about the tools and not about the root cause.
To Leftists: let there be no mistake. Barack Hussein Obama has drawn the battle lines between Islam and gays.
Guess what? Islam wins.
“Evil always wins through the strength of its splendid dupes; and there has in all ages been a disastrous alliance between abnormal innocence and abnormal sin.” — G.K. Chesterton
The most immediate goal of Leftists now? To eliminate those weapons which have detachable magazines.
And it couldn’t have happened to a more traitorous man. Or quickly enough.
The only thing worse than having to hear Obama’s voice, literally, EVERY day for the past seven years would be to hear Hillary’s piercing voice every day. That is not, at this point, an impossible future.
Will Obama mention his traitorous Iranian deal? Will he mention the Iranian missiles fired close to our newest aircraft carrier? Will he mention the ten sailors captured by Iran? As Charles Krauthammer said, Obama has already been serially humiliated by Iran.
Obama canceled sanctions for the missile launches. Obama is kind to our enemies and brutal to our allies.
How long will the speech go? How many times will he say “I” instead of we?
That wasn’t a movie, a TV show or a bad SNL skit. That’s classroom reality.
“Food Stamp recipients didn’t cause the financial crisis; recklessness on Wall Street did.” Wall Street helped; but the givernment demanded that banks loan to people who couldn’t afford houses.
“Look, if anybody still wants to dispute the science around climate change, have at it. You’ll be pretty lonely, because you’ll be debating our military, most of America’s business leaders, the majority of the American people, almost the entire scientific community, and 200 nations around the world who agree it’s a problem and intend to solve it.”
Again, more lies. More embracement of The Religious Left — those who so desperately want to believe in Global Warming. It is a religion that demands faith and, like islam, brooks no dissenters.
“No nation dares to attack us or our allies because they know that’s the path to ruin.”
All of the highest-ranking military professionals in the room appeared as though they had had a steaming dog turd stuffed in their mouths when Obama said that. I watched.
“Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office.”
Another massive and total lie.
Even the Demorats in the audience who stood to clap did so with tepid vigor and passive and disinterested faces.
THE BIGGEST LIE OF THE EVENING:
“We don’t need to build them (ISIL) up to show that we’re serious, nor do we need to push away vital allies in this fight by echoing the lie that ISIL is representative of one of the world’s largest religions.”
THE BIGGEST OMISSION OF THE EVENING:
NOT ONE WORD about US debt and the massive deficits, CONTINUED and EXPANDED GOVERNMENT SPENDING that he and Demorats and Leftists demand.
“The future we want – opportunity and security for our families; a rising standard of living and a sustainable, peaceful planet for our kids – all that is within our reach. But it will only happen if we work together. It will only happen if we can have rational, constructive debates.”
And those debates, those discussions, are just what you and the Demorats and your fellow Leftists won’t brook in your cabinet meetings, in the public, on the internet, in books and magazines, on television and, mostly now, in our schools and universities.
“As frustration grows, there will be voices urging us to fall back into tribes, to scapegoat fellow citizens who don’t look like us, or pray like us, or vote like we do, or share the same background.”
How odd that you mention that in your very last state of the union speech, because you have been the greatest Divider In Chief.
Obama simultaneously disarms American citizens and arms Iran with the largest, most powerful and deadliest weapons systems on the planet. Mr Obama disarms our citizens, removes equipment from our police forces — who are our First Responders to terrorist and critical incidents, not any single faction of the federal government, in any form. Not the FBI, not the US Marshals, not FEMA. Not any federal agency. Your local law enforcement only.
He also ensures that our law enforcement agencies are diminished, demagogued, belittled.
Obama was the greatestDivider In Chief. He will be proven as the least effective president in recent history, even worse than that of James Earl Carter.
His power depended precisely upon division, the diminishment of American power, greater regulatory and governmental power and money, with the
Just as with his entire administration and tenure, Obama’s final state of the union speech was entirely disconnected from reality. He continues to be physically and mentally separated from the true reality in America and continues his denial of the way the country and the world operates. His speech was disjointed and riddled with major droppings of his ego, arrogance and dismissal of those who would oppose him or his policies in any fashion. He sets aside reality that is inconvenient to him.
Not one word about American hostages in Iran. Not one word about the Iran sanctions or Monday’s ten hostage sailors. He lectures us about civility but not one reference to the fact that Obama is almost singlehandedly responsible for the chaos in Syria via ISIS, his “J.V. team” and that, by extension, Obama will be responsible for the Islamization and decline of the bulk of Europe.
Obama chose to ignore the area where a president can have the most ready influence: foreign policy. He chose to dictate the area foundationally covered by and under the aegis of Congress: domestic policy.
The speech, like Mr Obama, was sophomoric, belittling and pedantic. And not based in any way upon reality.

I have some very salient comments to add after these pull quotes.
California law allowing seizure of guns without notice begins Jan. 1
by Andrew Blake
Gun control legislation going into effect in California next week will allow authorities to seize a person’s weapons for 21 days if a judge determines there is potential for violence.
Proposed in the wake of a deadly May 2014 shooting rampage by Elliot Rodger, the bill provides family members with a means of having an emergency “gun violence restraining order” imposed against a loved one if they can convince a judge that this person’s possession of a firearm “poses an immediate and present danger of causing personal injury to himself, herself or another by having in his or her custody or control.”
“The law gives us a vehicle to cause the person to surrender their weapons, to have a time out, if you will,” Los Angeles Police Department Assistant Chief Michael Moore told a local NPR affiliate. “It allows further examination of the person’s mental state.”
AB1014 was passed last year in the wake of 2014’s Isla Vista shooting, where teenager Elliot Rodger went on a rampage near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, killing six people along with himself.
The new law is intended to stop such a situation from re-occurring. Under the law, a judge has the power to grant a restraining order telling police to seize a person’s guns, based solely on accounts from family members or police that the person is poses an imminent danger to others. The restraining order can be granted without the affected person knowing it exists or being allowed time to contest it.
Once granted, police can use the restraining order to confiscate all of a person’s guns and ammunition, and the person is also barred from buying or possessing guns and ammo for the duration of the order. A full court hearing must then be heard within three weeks. At that hearing, a judge will be able to extend the restraining order for an entire year.
That is not unprecedented in Fornicalia. As a peace officer, if I made a detention under 5150 W&I and determined that someone fell under those parameters, I could legally confiscate their guns on that call.
5150(a)When a person, as a result of a mental health disorder, is a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled, a peace officer, professional person in charge of a facility designated by the county for evaluation and treatment, member of the attending staff, as defined by regulation, of a facility designated by the county for evaluation and treatment, designated members of a mobile crisis team, or professional person designated by the county may, upon probable cause, take, or cause to be taken, the person into custody for a period of up to 72 hours for assessment, evaluation, and crisis intervention, or placement for evaluation and treatment in a facility designated by the county for evaluation and treatment and approved by the State Department of Health Care Services. At a minimum, assessment, as defined in Section 5150.4, and evaluation, as defined in subdivision (a) of Section 5008, shall be conducted and provided on an ongoing basis. Crisis intervention, as defined in subdivision (e) of Section 5008, may be provided concurrently with assessment, evaluation, or any other service.
When I made a commitment under 5150 W&I, I was legally bound to inquire about firearms in the affected household and then book them for safekeeping when they were brought to my attention. My failure to do that would have resulted in my receipt of discipline, at minimum. Once the commitment was accepted, should that occur, the firearms per Cal DOJ were not to be returned for a period of five years. One can petition the local court in which the guns or deadly weapons were confiscated. California section 5250 W&I (Welfare & Institutions code) deals with firearms following a 5150 W&I hold being placed. I was very careful when placing said holds and sometimes refused to make them against the wishes of family members — who could have an agenda.
In the new instance, however, under AB 1014, weapons can be confiscated in lieu of a 5150 hold and the injection of law enforcement in an emergency situation. I only found myself involved, as a law enforcement officer, in an emergency call. Here is the very important caveat:
Practically, this means once you are his with the restraining order you will never own a firearm again for the rest of your life and the ones the police take from you will never be returned. Is any California judge going to lift the restraining order and take the risk that at some later point you may be involved in a shooting of some kind? No.
So, do you, the subject of such an action have the right to be notified that such an allegation has been made against you? Do you have to right to contest their application? Can you contest the ability of the state, without anything approaching probably cause, to have you hauled in for “mental evaluation?” (Why is it that totalitarian regimes invariably use the mental health system to deal with dissidents and non-conformists?) Nope.
How will you find out? When a SWAT team shows up at your door to take your weapons and cart you off for a mental health evaluation.
Beware. It is, after all, Fornicalia. And there is a reason I call it that.
More is coming, America.
Obama will issue his imperial executive gun orders in just a few more days.
