UCLA Shooting: Another Gun Free Zone

Victim disarmament policy claims more lives

At least two people were killed during a shooting on UCLA campus today in yet another victim disarmament gun free zone.

“A UCLA police spokesperson said officers responded to an engineering lab and asked students to go to a secure location after the campus-wide alert system issued a notification,” reports NBC News.

At time of press, the gunman is still on the loose and has not been apprehended.

According to California state law, gun ownership is strictly regulated on the campus of UCLA.

Under Penal Code 626.9 PC, known as California’s Gun-Free School Zone Act, which was enacted in 1995, students are prohibited from carrying a gun within 1,000 feet of school grounds.

UCLA’s own campus policy also, “Prohibits the transportation and possession of firearms and other dangerous weapons on the grounds of UCLA campus, off-campus buildings owned or operated by the University, areas adjacent to University Property or to activities of or programs conducted by the University, whether on or off University Property.”

In October last year, California Gov. Jerry Brown also signed into law SB707, which banned students from carrying concealed weapons on school grounds and college campuses.

Of course, criminals don’t tend to obey laws, so the only impact of such measures is to disarm potential victims.

Showdown: State Reps Rally to Stop VA-Ordered Gun Confiscation of Vietnam Vet

VA deems vet too “incompetent” to own firearms
Showdown: State Reps Rally to Stop VA-Ordered Gun Confiscation of Vietnam Vet

State representatives and citizens alike are descending on Idaho in an attempt to stop the Department of Veterans Affairs from confiscating the firearms of a Vietnam veteran.

Idaho State Representative Heather Scott, who first brought attention to the issue Thursday morning, stated that the veteran had issued a plea for help after the VA determined him unable to own firearms following a minor stroke.

“Based on an assessment of a letter I received, I believe that the Department of Veterans Affairs is coming to a veteran’s home in Priest River today to check for and confiscate his guns based on nothing more than a stroke which has left him with some mild physical impairment,” Scott wrote on her Facebook page.

An excerpt of the letter posted online states that the veteran is prohibited from possessing any firearms whatsoever based upon a “determination” that he is “incompetent” to handle his VA funds.

“As we advised you previously, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act prohibits you from purchasing, possessing, receiving or transporting a firearm or ammunition based upon determination that you are incompetent to handle your VA funds,” the letter reportedly said. “You may be fined and/or imprisoned if you knowingly violate this law.”

Washington State Representative Matthew Shea, who traveled to Idaho after examining the letter as well, stated that the VA’s actions were clearly unwarranted.

“After evaluating the VA claims and letters and getting information from the head of the American Legion Auxilliary in Bonner County, it is clear this is not warranted,” Shea said on Facebook. “We cannot let this stand. The seizure of the guns of one of us… is the seizure of the guns for all of us.”

According to sources on the ground speaking with Infowars, the rally, which started shortly after 12 pm MDT at the Priest River Community Church, has already drawn more than 100 people from the surrounding area.

Reports also indicate that Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler and members of the local police department will also stand behind the veteran.

More to come as the story develops.

Support Drops Further For Gun Control

Majority do not believe tighter gun laws would prevent mass shooting incidents
Support Drops Further For Gun Control

by Steve Watson | InfoWars | July 1, 2015

Two new polls have revealed that support for gun control has dipped, despite the high profile shooting in Charleston last month.

A new CNN/Orc poll found that approval for the way Obama is handling gun policy has dropped to 42 percent, with 53 percent saying they do not approve.

Those figures have fallen from findings registered by CNN following the 2012 Sandy Hook School shootings, when Obama’s approval on gun policy reached 49 percent in December 2013.

Even then the figures represented a dropping off of support for gun control, as gun control advocates had diminished by 10 percent over a year between 2012 and 2013.

The latest findings also come on the heels of new calls by the President for more strict gun control.

The CNN poll found a significant split regarding gun policy approval according to race. A large 61 percent of white Americans disapprove of the president’s gun policies, while 79 percent of blacks approve of the way Obama is handling gun policy.

A separate survey conducted by Suffolk University/USA TODAY has found that the majority of Americans do not want to see gun control as a major point of debate for the 2016 presidential election.

According to the poll, 52 percent say they do not want gun control to be a “significant subject” during the election, with 43 percent saying the opposite.

The poll also found that 56 percent of Americans believe more restrictive gun laws would do nothing to prevent mass shootings.

A further 76 percent said more access to guns would also not prevent mass shootings.

Despite these findings, David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston bizarrely claimed that “There is more desire to tighten than to loosen [gun laws],” in a statement accompanying the release of the poll.

The poll also found that 47 percent regard the shooting as an isolated incident, while only 38 percent believe it is part of a “larger problem of racism” in the country.

Approximately 59 percent said they are of the opinion that the Charleston shooting should not be defined as a terrorist attack. Less than a third said it should be.

Revolt: Millions of N.Y. Gun Owners Refuse to Register Firearms

Only around 24,000 New Yorkers, many of them cops, complied with gun control law

by Kit Daniels | Infowars.com | June 24, 2015

Millions of New York gun owners refused to register their firearms to comply with the draconian N.Y. SAFE Act.

So far only around 24,000 gun owners, many of them cops, registered their semiautomatic rifles with the state, meaning that the law has effectively been repealed through civil disobedience.

“I am amused at the pathetically low numbers of New Yorkers who registered their so-called assault rifles,” New York State Rifle & Pistol Association President Tom King said. “The number of individuals who registered their guns is 24,000 and many of these are law-enforcement officials mandated to comply by their department.”

“New York gun owners know it is flawed and they are not complying with it. I am confident that we will ultimately prevail in getting significant portions of the law overturned in the courts.”

The SAFE Act, which created a gun registry for semiautomatic weapons using detachable magazines, was practically ignored by both gun owners and sheriffs since it was signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2013.

Protestors against the law marked the April 15 registration deadline by destroying state registration cards.

“They have been shredding the Constitution for years,” gun owner Rus Thompson said. “You shred the Constitution, we’ll shred any form you want us to fill out.”

“They can’t arrest a million people. What are they going to do?”

Erie Co. Sheriff Timothy B. Howard publicly said he wouldn’t enforce the SAFE Act.

“The Constitution is the law of the land,” he stated. “If you know it’s a violation of the Constitution, how can you enforce it?”

Howard described the SAFE Act as one of the strongest examples of the government not listening to the people.

“It’s an unenforceable law and I believe it will ultimately be declared unconstitutional,” he said. “Do you want law enforcement people that will say ‘I will do this because I’m told to do this, even if I know it’s wrong?’”

Obama to Circumvent Congress With ‘Gag Order’ on Firearm Coverage

Obama administration is working behind the scenes to stifle reporting on firearms
Obama to Circumvent Congress With 'Gag Order' on Firearm Coverage

by AWR Hawkins | Breitbart | June 8, 2015

On June 1 Breitbart News reported on Obama’s Spring 2015 “Unified Agenda.” The gun control measures contained therein which were to be passed by executive fiat.

Since that time Representatives like Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) have placed riders on a DOJ appropriations bill to stop portions of the executive gun control push in its tracks. Now the NRA-ILA is revealing that the Obama administration is working behind the scenes to stifle reporting on firearms.

From the NRA-ILA:

Even as news reports have been highlighting the gun control provisions of the Administration’s “Unified Agenda” of regulatory objectives, the Obama State Department has been quietly moving ahead with a proposal that could censor online speech related to firearms.

How can this happen?

Like this: The administration is reworking the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). One of the many things regulated by ITAR are “technical data” tied to “defense articles.” This includes, but is not limited to, “detailed design, development, production or manufacturing information” about ammunition and firearms.

72 People Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation in Massachusetts

June 5, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw…

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.

Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.

During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.

And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775.

On July 4th, 1776 these same “right wing anti-tax extremists” signed the Declaration of Independence, pledging to each other and their countrymen their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Many of them lost everything, including their families and their lives over the course of the next few years.
The (analogous) recounting of history (above) has been floated around the blogoshpere during the past year. It is interesting to reflect back upon history, is it not?

Would not these same men be labeled homegrown terrorists today?

Not saying that circumstances or parallels are the same today (they are indeed different as all times are different), and certainly not promoting the notion, but reading a form of satire can be an interesting thing…
The incident referenced in this article is of course not something that recently took place in the Boston area, but rather a recasting of an event that is widely regarded as marking the beginning of the American Revolutionary War: the military clashes at Lexington and Concord which took place between British troops (commonly known as “redcoats”
or “regulars”) and Massachusetts militia (commonly known as “Minutemen”) on April 18-19 in 1775. The “National Guard” troops were British soldiers, the “paramilitary extremist faction” was rebellious colonials, Thomas Gage was the military governor of Massachusetts and the commander-in-chief of British forces who had been sent to occupy Boston in response to the Boston Tea Party and other colonial acts of protest, and the “law enforcement” group was British troops dispatched to Concord (about 26 miles northwest of Boston) on the night of April 18 in order to destroy military supplies that were reportedly being stored there by colonial rebels.

The colonists learned of the British plans in advance, and William Dawes, Paul Revere, and others famously spread an alarm throughout the area that night warning that British regulars were about to embark in boats from Boston bound for Cambridge and the road to Lexington and Concord. Those early warnings allowed colonial militia to assemble in sufficient numbers to surprise the British troops at Lexington and confront them again at Concord. Those two skirmishes, as well as additional attacks on the British troops as they returned to Boston, left 72 redcoats dead. The colonial militia continued to grow as neighboring colonies sent additional men and supplies, and eventually formed the beginning of the Continental Army that would contest the British in the Revolutionary War.
