NJ Second Amendment Groups Issue Warning to State Assembly

The New Jersey Second Amendment Society, together with other Garden State based Second Amendment -related organizations has served legal notice on Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver. This warning states that impending action on several firearm-related bills would be invalid and subject to legal challenge as a result of illegal vote-rigging in an Assembly committee earlier this month. The rules that have been violated are as follows:

Assembly Rule 12:3: After a roll call vote has commenced, no motion is in order until the results are announced by the Speaker.
Assembly Rule 10:6: Each committee may adopt rules for its operation and conduct of business, including rules governing the operation and conduct of any subcommittee, provided the rules are consistent with these rules.
Assembly Rule 10:22. Bills and resolutions reported by any committee in violation of these rules shall not be considered for third reading or final action.

On June 6, 2013, during a hearing of the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee, a gun control package (bill A4182) failed during the roll call vote. Committee Chairman Charles Mainor aborted the roll call vote after 9 of 11 votes had been cast. NJ Assembly rule 12:3 states that once a roll call vote begins, no further action can be taken until the results are announced. Instead of completing the vote, ASM Mainor announced he was holding the bill, despite Republican committee members' objections.

Nevada Saved!

Governor Sandoval vetoed the Universal Background Check bill yesterday, and now, the anti-gun Left is in full-mourning.

The Associated Press reports that, “It is a significant defeat for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's gun control advocacy group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns [MAIG]. The organization spent hundreds of thousands of dollars working to get the bill passed through to the governor.”

Nevada is a key state as it is home to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) and to “swing vote” Senator Dean Heller (R).  Defeating Universal Background Checks in the Silver State -- with overwhelming numbers of callers opposing it -- sends a powerful message from a Purple State, that Americans do NOT want additional gun control!

Dirty Tricks in Nevada!

Dirty Tricks in Nevada!
This from Tom Gresham a few minutes ago:


The National Association for Gun Rights is going with a Chicago-style dirty tricks campaign.
They are robo calling Nevada gun owners with a call that sounds as though it is strongly pro-gun.  It then gives out the phone number of the governor's office, and says to press 1, then press 3 to be connected.
Except !!! pressing 1 is a vote in favor of SB211, and not to oppose it.
Call this number to hear the recording.  775-671-3057
Let's get the word out.
Here's a quick summation from the Mr. Conservative blog...essentially Republican Governor Brian Sandoval had asked whether he should veto the onerous universal background check law passed in Nevada (as opposed to, say, Colorado Governor John Hickenstoopid, who only called Michael Bloomberg and asked his opinion on the Colorado laws):
While Washington may be ignoring you, your voice can still be heard, at least at the state level. Although Nevada’s Republican governor Brian Sandoval had already announced that he intended to veto the Nevada legislature’s “universal background check” bill, thousands of citizens called the governor’s office to make sure that he kept his word.
Once the NRA sent out an alert notifying Nevada citizens that their legislature had passed a universal background check bill that would force people to pay $30 for a background check before claiming their gun, 2,200 people called the governor’s office this past Wednesday to protest. There were so many calls that the Governor’s office set up an emergency automated phone system allow callers to push a button to show whether their call was for or against universal background checks in Nevada. So far, 80% of the calls were in the “nay” column.
Hey, the Chicago Way says when the vote goes against you, lie, cheat and try to steal it!

25 Shot, 6 Dead in NYC and Bloomberg Says Gun Control Agenda Works?


Six dead and more than two dozen shootings in New York City over the weekend is a sign that Mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun agenda - which he hopes to spread across the nation with his big bucks campaigns to buy away the gun rights of American citizens - is beginning to fail, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

"Michael Bloomberg wants to use his wealth to buy Big Apple gun control all over the country," said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. "Despite reports that New York City violence is actually down from last year, over the weekend, that city accounted for half of the slayings that Seattle has seen so far for the entire first five months of the year.

"Before Bloomberg spends another million dollars trying to spread his program of gun prohibition," he added, "the mayor ought to concentrate on his own turf and leave the rest of the nation alone."

A story about the violent weekend held an important revelation about gun control that Gottlieb said has been overlooked. Yahoo News noted, "New York recently became the first state to pass major gun control legislation since the Dec. 14 shootings in Newtown, Conn. The bill that Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law in January both strengthens the state's existing assault weapons ban and introduces new mental health regulations for potential gun owners. None of that did much to help...a seventh-grader at Middle School 302 in the Bronx and one of three girls to be caught in the line of fire over the last few weeks."

"That says it all about Bloomberg-style gun control," Gottlieb observed. "Fat cats like Bloomberg can push all the anti-gun nonsense their wallets can handle, but while their efforts crack down on law-abiding citizens, they won't stop a single criminal from committing a heinous crime.

"Anti-gunners always complain about the 'Wild West'," he noted, "but it looks more and more like the real wild places are cities like Bloomberg's New York, where law-abiding citizens are hard put to own, much less carry firearms for self-defense thanks to the elitist gun laws backed by the billionaire mayor that have consistently disarmed good people while not affecting the bad ones."
