Eric Holder: We must "brainwash" people against guns has unearthed video from a 1995 CSPAN2 broadcast which shows Eric Holder, then a U.S. attorney under President Clinton and now President Obama's Attorney General, calling for a program in America's schools and U.S. media that would "brainwash" people against guns.

Holder's Department of Justice is responsible for the ATF "Fast & Furious" gun-running scandal, which has led to the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans and at least one American border patrol agent, and the video casts more light on the program, which internal emails have proved was designed to convince American voters to support more gun control.

Holder also can be heard saying that he "asked the school board to make a part of every day some kind of anti-violence, anti-gun message. Every day, every school, at every level."

Do you believe this???!!!!!!! Does not believe in the 2nd Amendment!!!!!

No Fear - Former Ohio police detective espouses concealed carry

Robert R.Surgenor Sr, retired police detective, makes the (convincing) case for concealed carry and gun ownership by law abiding citizens. Unlike so many anti gun people he points out the positive aspects. The audio of 911 calls, beginning and end, show a stark and tragic contrast with regard to being defenseless or armed.

Let’s hear it for Colorado

Colorado Supreme Court issued its ruling in the Regents of the University of Colorado v. Students for Concealed Carry on Campus case, affirming the right of individuals who have appropriate permits to carry concealed handguns on CU’s campuses. The court held that the General Assembly intended, through the Concealed Carry Act, to divest the Board of Regents of its authority to regulate concealed handgun possession on campus.

You will not see a Virginia Tech style rampage on campuses in Colorado.

Februrary sees 31.4% increase in firearms sales checks over same month last year; 21st straight month over month increase

Submitted by cbaus

The February 2012 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 1,266,344 is an increase of 31.4 percent over the NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 963,746 in February 2011. For comparison, the unadjusted February 2012 NICS figure of 1,734,646 reflects a 18.6 percent increase from the unadjusted NICS figure of 1,463,138 in February 2011.

This marks the 21st straight month that NSSF-adjusted NICS figures have increased when compared to the same period the previous year.

The adjusted NICS data were derived by subtracting out NICS purpose code permit checks used by several states such as Kentucky, Iowa and Michigan for CCW permit application checks as well as checks on active CCW permit databases.

Though not a direct correlation to firearms sales, the NSSF-adjusted NICS data provide a more accurate picture of current market conditions. In addition to other purposes, NICS is used to check transactions of firearms sales and transfers on new and used handguns and long guns.

Time to arm willing teachers to stop spree killers ! or ?

by Jeff Thomas

By now everyone has heard about the Chardon High School shooting that left three students dead and two others wounded this week.

Many believed it was just a matter of time before a school shooting reached Ohio. On Monday morning it happened. This just highlights the need to arm willing teachers to serve as the last line of defense of our children.

While a lot remains unknown about Monday's shooting, had a willing and properly trained and armed teacher been present, this could have prevented multiple children from being shot.

I don't know anyone who would argue against the notion that children are the most precious gift in life.

Nor would any able-minded parent stop at anything to protect their children. Having the ability and means to protect children should not stop when they leave the home or enter school where they will spend more than 10,000 hours to someday be able to graduate from high school.

While some may try to argue that targeting schools for massacres is a new phenomenon that began with the Columbine High School shooting in 1999 that left 12 students and a teacher dead, and 21 others wounded, that's far from the truth. Bath Township, Mich., still holds the unwanted title for being the deadliest mass murder at a school in U.S. history when a man, enraged over property taxes to build a new school, set off a series of bombs. Killed were 38 elementary school children, two teachers, four other adults and the bomber.

There also have been countless other school killings that did not capture national headlines. On top of that, numerous plots have been foiled.

One thing is clear from history: school massacres have happened for many years and will continue to happen. While teachers have received training in how to lock down their classrooms, and police have changed their strategy to have the initial officers on the scene go in as opposed to waiting for a SWAT team, more needs to be done.

It's time we arm teachers who are willing to stand guard between our children and someone willing to harm them. This in no way means arming reluctant teachers, but rather arming teachers who are willing to accept the responsibility.

A teacher willing to take the appropriate training and pass a qualification test could become the one who saves numerous lives.

In Ohio, selling or providing a handgun to anyone under 21 is illegal, yet headlines claim it's easy for a child to get a gun

by Chad D. Baus

Ohio Revised Code 2923.21 says it plainly - it is illegal in Ohio to sell or furnish a handgun to anyone under 21 years of age, and it is illegal to sell or furnish a firearm of any kind to a person under 18 years of age. It is also illegal to sell or furnish a firearm to another person if the seller knows or has reason to know that the firearm is intended to be provided to an under-age person. Violating this law is a felony of the fifth degree, punishable by up to one year in prison and up to $2500 in fines.

It is also illegal to steal a firearm. It's illegal to take a firearm on school property. And of course it's illegal to shoot people with it.

Yet despite all of these gun control laws, if you just landed here from Mars last week and read the headlines, you'd be led to believe the State of Ohio's laws are so loose we might as well be selling guns in school cafeteria vending machines.

A Parent’s Guide to School Shootings

by Greg Ellifritz

I walked into the high school wearing two guns and a bullet resistant vest. I had a rifle, six spare magazines, and a ballistic helmet stashed close by in my car. It was Wednesday, April 21st 1999, the day after what had been the worst school shooting in United States history. Two high school kids had just killed 12 of their fellow students and a teacher at Columbine High School in Colorado. The television was awash in the news coverage and everyone was scared.

Maryland Ruling A Huge Victory For Second Amendment

A federal court ruling in Maryland, that the Second Amendment right to bear arms extends beyond the home and that citizens may not be required to offer a "good and substantial reason" for obtaining a concealed carry permit, is a huge victory, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.

Ruling in the case of Woollard v. Sheridan - a case brought by SAF in July 2010 on behalf of Maryland resident Raymond Woollard, who was denied his carry permit renewal - the U.S. District Court for Maryland ruled that "The Court finds that the right to bear arms is not limited to the home."

U.S. District Court Judge Benson Everett Legg noted, "In addition to self-defense, the (Second Amendment) right was also understood to allow for militia membership and hunting. To secure these rights, the Second Amendments protections must extend beyond the home: neither hunting nor militia training is a household activity, and self-defense has to take place wherever [a] person happens to be'."

"A citizen may not be required to offer a good and substantial reason' why he should be permitted to exercise his rights," Judge Legg wrote. "The right's existence is all the reason he needs."

Illinois: Women Advised to Use Combs,Keys, and vomit Against Rapists

by: Brian McCombie

Read More

As reported by the Rockford Star, “Women who log onto an Illinois State Police Web page will find they are advised to protect themselves [in case of sexual assault] with a ‘rat tail comb, keys, pens and pencils’ against an assailant armed with a gun or knife. As a last resort, women are told put their fingers into their throats and to make themselves vomit, apparently to make themselves less attractive.”
