Authorities destroy cameras to prevent account of raid…

When critics warn about the dangers of police militarization, this is what we\’re talking about. You’ll see the raid team, dressed in battle-dress uniforms, helmets and face-covering balaclava hoods take down the family’s door with a battering ram. You’ll see them storm the home with ballistics shields, guns at the ready. More troubling still, you’ll see not one but two officers attempt to prevent the family from having an independent record of the raid, one by destroying a surveillance camera, another by blocking another camera’s lens.

RAID FILMED: Ankeny Police ‘Traumatize’ Family in IowaANKENY,

IOWA WHOTV: New information regarding the story reported Monday night regarding a search warrant that was executed at a Des Moines home, looking for about $1000 worth of items purchased with a stolen credit card. Ankeny police spokeswoman Captain Makai Echer says officers consider several factors when deciding whether to send officers similar to a SWAT team to a house to serve a warrant, or simply knock on the door.In this case, Echer says, officers looked at suspect’s criminal histories and whether there could be firearms in the home. Of the three suspects that were present in the home, one has a violent arrest record for two assaults about 13-years ago and a domestic assault.Another suspect did have a permit to carry a weapon. Echer would not comment on whether that played a role in the decision. She would also not comment on whether it was appropriate for a police officer to rip a security camera from the front of the house after officers had already entered.

The full statement is as follows:

The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.

Since the jury decided that the tragedy was a result of justifiable self defense, the “future tragedies” will not be the attacker but the attacked. Does that sound better to anyone other than attackers, muggers, rapists, thieves and/or wannabe tyrannical government?

Yeah I know adding government was redundant to the prior description of what government has become, but, I’m going to leave it there.

You must first know that you CANNOT buy a gun from gun dealer on the internet or at a gun show without a background check. The “gun show loophole” does not really exist, the sales that don’t get the NICS instant check are those sales that are between individuals (usually in the parking lot because the actual gun dealers inside don’t want the competition) and internet gun sales from gun dealers are only shipped to your local dealer for delivery, and that local dealer runs the NICS check, fills out the paperwork, and charges a fee before he hands you that “internet purchase”.Anyone who sells five guns a year (even from an inherited collection) must have a Federal Firearms License and follow those rules or is already criminal.

Now explain to me how the feds will verify that a background check was ever made without keeping records of who the background checks were run on. Under the current system firearm dealers are required to keep them while the government is required by law to scrub the record of the check being called in within 24 hours. Any “universal” system will result in recordkeeping which will be a de facto registration system of gunowners if not specific guns. That still enables confiscation which has always followed registration at some later date.

That issue has been ignored and obfuscated by the misdirection of trying to get this backdoor registration enacted.

Quoting Admiral Akbar, “It’s a trap!”

Ascribing good intentions to politicRats is a fool’s game.

The mental illness and state felony needs are also fiction because they are already covered in the NICS checks, IF THE STATES AND SHRINKS BOTHER TO REPORT THEM.

Here is the list from fbi.gov:

Federal Categories of Persons Prohibited From Receiving

A delay response from the NICS Section indicates the subject of the background check has been matched with either a state or federal potentially prohibiting record containing a similar name and/or similar descriptive features (name, sex, race, date of birth, state of residence, social security number, height, weight, or place of birth). The federally prohibiting criteria are as follows:

  • A person who has been convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year or any state offense classified by the state as a misdemeanor and is punishable by a term of imprisonment of more than two years.
  • Persons who are fugitives of justice—for example, the subject of an active felony or misdemeanor warrant.
  • An unlawful user and/or an addict of any controlled substance; for example, a person convicted for the use or possession of a controlled substance within the past year; or a person with multiple arrests for the use or possession of a controlled substance within the past five years with the most recent arrest occurring within the past year; or a person found through a drug test to use a controlled substance unlawfully, provided the test was administered within the past year.
  • A person adjudicated mental defective or involuntarily committed to a mental institution or incompetent to handle own affairs, including dispositions to criminal charges of found not guilty by reason of insanity or found incompetent to stand trial.
  • A person who, being an alien, is illegally or unlawfully in the United States.
  • A person who, being an alien except as provided in subsection (y) (2), has been admitted to the United States under a non-immigrant visa.
  • A person dishonorably discharged from the United States Armed Forces.
  • A person who has renounced his/her United States citizenship.
  • The subject of a protective order issued after a hearing in which the respondent had notice that restrains them from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of such partner. This does not include ex parte orders.
  • A person convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime which includes the use or attempted use of physical force or threatened use of a deadly weapon and the defendant was the spouse, former spouse, parent, guardian of the victim, by a person with whom the victim shares a child in common, by a person who is cohabiting with or has cohabited in the past with the victim as a spouse, parent, guardian or similar situation to a spouse, parent or guardian of the victim.
  • A person who is under indictment or information for a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year.

The third to last of these has often been used maliciously by proto-politicians, (lawyers who have yet to run for office) to punish, harrass and disarm potential victims as a tactic in divorce proceedings.

I can only guess why they lie about this, but it appears to me that it what has become, in fact, if not in name, the National Socialist American Union Workers Party has plans for emulating its predecessor.

AWR Hawkins went on Fox News’ Judge Jeanine on Saturday and emphasized that the federal government would have to create a gun registry in order to implement universal background checks and noted such legislation would not prevent tragedies like Sandy Hook from occurring.
Juan Williams, Fox News’ liberal pundit, and Hawkins, who has written extensively about Second Amendment issues, debated whether the father of a child killed at Sandy Hook was right when he stated that background checks and gun control are not necessarily the solutions to prevent such tragedies.
Responding to Williams’s comments that the notion that more background checks would create a national registry was “bogus” and “paranoid,” Hawkins said gun stores must to keep up to 20 years of records on gun purchases, and the ATF can–and often does–check those records whenever they want with regular and surprise visits.
“They can come in, look at those records, and figure out who has and hasn’t purchased a gun during the last 20 years,” Hawkins said. “That is a de facto registry.”
Hawkins also said for universal background checks to work, “there has to be a gun registry.”
“The government has to know where every gun is in order to know that I’m not selling a gun to my neighbor nor is my neighbor selling a gun to me.”
Hawkins also made the point that Adam Lanza, the Newtown shooter, “stole his gun,” proving that a national registry or more background checks would not have stopped him from carrying out the horrific Newtown massacre.
“Nothing would have stopped [him],” Hawkins said.
Hawkins also noted these points are not made in the mainstream press and the conventional narratives about gun control not challenged because those in the mainstream media like CBS’s Scott Pelley, ABC’s Jon Karl, NBC’s Chuck Todd, and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough “are in with Obama to push more gun control.” He noted some in the media have even proclaimed that this was, “our last, best chance to pass gun control.”

As a long term Army veteran with diplomatic duties I urge you to reflect on the fact that most of us know or will prior to 2014 that the only way to keep records for a “universal background check” is by retaining records of the background checks which becomes de facto registration.

History has also taught anyone who bothers to read it, that registration is always eventually followed by confiscation.

I actually understand that a federal force stationed in a state (National Guard) is not the militia considered in the 2nd Amendment,nor the following Militia Acts of 1792,1862, and 1903.

Goal number 29 of the CPUSA in 1963 began, “Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs”.I really do not like hearing it from US elected officials.

About effing time!

On Wednesday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) took to the Senate floor and warned that universal background checks could lead to a national registry system for guns.

“Some of the proposals, like for example- universal background checks- would allow the federal government to surveil law-abiding citizens who exercise their Constitutional rights. One of the provisions we expect to see in the bill based on what we saw in the Judiciary Committee- on which I sit- would allow the Attorney General of the United States (Eric Holder) to promulgate regulations that could lead to a national registry system for guns. Something my constituents in Utah are very concerned about, and understandably so,” said Sen. Lee.

“You see, the federal government has no business monitoring when or how often you go to church; what books and newspapers you read; who you vote for; your health conditions; what you eat for breakfast; and the details of your private life– including your lawful exercise of your rights protected by the Second Amendment and other provisions of the Bill of Rights.”

This was soooo much fun to watch.

Conservative Dana Loesch, with help from Grover Norquist, completely obliterated Piers Morgan and Van Jones on gun rights in America. It was almost embarrassing for the guys. At one point Piers was speechless. Too funny.
