Erroneous news

Belgrade, Serbia (AP) — In a Dec. 10 story, The Associated Press incorrectly reported that a gun exported by a Serbian manufacturer to a Florida-based company was involved in the Nov. 13 Paris attacks. In fact, the gun in question was not involved in the attacks and has been in Mexican government custody since March of this year, according to US authorities. It was recovered at a crime scene in Mexico, not Paris.

So I’m guessing the ATF provided it to a Mexican criminal as part of ATF’s Fast & Furious gun running operation.

Missing Afghans

Still no word on the two Afghan Air Force trainees who went missing from Moody AFB in Georgia, USA a couple of weeks ago.

Virginia CCW reciprocity revoked

Virginia’s radically anti-gun Attorney General Mark R. Herring (D) (supported by radically anti-gun governor Terry McAuliffe (D) — who showed up at a gun control event surrounded by armed bodyguards), says that after Feb. 1 Virginia will no longer recognize concealed carry handgun permits from 25 states that currently have reciprocity agreements with the commonwealth. That’s about 6.3 million permits.

The states are: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Reciprocity agreements will remain with West Virginia, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.

In November, a bill was filed that would require Virginia to recognize permits from other states. If approved, it would reverse Herring’s ruling.

Visitors to Virginia can still obtain a non-resident permit if they meet a separate set of standards set forth in the law.

But why would you visit?

In response to the debacle, VA GOP lawmakers say they are considering a budget amendment to take away the governor’s executive protection unit, because “If he’s so afraid of guns, then I’m not going to surround him with armed state policemen.”

Texas AG opinions on guns

And a headline from Texas:

“Police across Texas are bracing for a spike in 911 calls when the state’s open carry law takes effect Jan. 1 and panicked citizens start seeing handguns on people’s hips.”

Well maybe in Austin, but the rest of the state IS Texas…

California confiscation

You know how they always say nobody’s out to get your guns? Well in California, a new law gives a judge has the power to grant a 3-week 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. It can be extended for a year at a full hearing, but the 3 weeks is based on essentially nothing, and certainly not due process.

    Open carry in Virginia is rather complicated. So this means when we make our armed march on Washington D.C., we must travel around South Carolina and conquer Virginia before we can address our ultimate goal. Sometimes I think the criminals are smarter than we are. They get full-auto and carry anywhere there are no metal detectors.
