John Lewis wants to prevent himself and especially James Robinson (all of them) from buying guns

Here is a list of some interesting folks wrongly added to the no-fly list:

1. Democratic Congressmen John Lewis
2. Senator Ted Kennedy
3. CNN Reporter Drew Griffin
4. 8-year-old Cub Scout Mikey Hicks and his father, who shares the same name
5. Journalist Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard
6. Lyman Latin, a disabled U.S. Marine veteran
7. 6-year-old Alyssa Thomas from Ohio
8. A two-year-old child
9. Former Air National Guard brigadier general, James Robinson
10. Third-grader James Robinson
11. Former U.S. attorney James Robinson
12. Actor David Nelson
13. Yusuf Islam, the singer formerly known as Cat Stevens

Yes, #1 on the list is the John Lewis who instigated the heroic pouting session sit-in opportunity to eat Chick-fil-A and send out contribution requests protest.

For details on each of those on the list, see The Daily Wire.

Plus, of all the ‘shops, Murdoc likes this one the best:

John Lewis was Once Erroneously Placed on No-Fly List He Wants to Use to Deny Due Process

Rep John Lewis No Fly List
Rep John Lewis No Fly List
John Lewis was Once Erroneously Placed on No-Fly List He Wants to Use to Deny Due Process

Not only was he erroneously placed on the list, he couldn’t get himself off of it quickly. At the time, Lewis had been in Congress for 27 years. If he couldn’t get it cleared up quickly, what chance does an average citizen have?

It is disturbing that a man who came into the public consciousness because he was battling institutional government oppression of the rights of American citizens is now a champion of doing just the same.

Also remember that Innocent People Placed On ‘Watch List’ To Meet Quota.

It’s hard to take these people seriously.

Innocent People Placed On ‘Watch List’ To Meet Quota

Marshals Say They Must File One Surveillance Detection Report, Or SDR, Per Month

The air marshals, whose identities are being concealed, told 7NEWS that they’re required to submit at least one report a month. If they don’t, there’s no raise, no bonus, no awards and no special assignments.

“Innocent passengers are being entered into an international intelligence database as suspicious persons, acting in a suspicious manner on an aircraft … and they did nothing wrong,” said one federal air marshal.

These unknowing passengers who are doing nothing wrong are landing in a secret government document called a Surveillance Detection Report, or SDR.

And this bit it particularly relevant at this moment:

What kind of impact would it have for a flying individual to be named in an SDR?

“That could have serious impact … They could be placed on a watch list. They could wind up on databases that identify them as potential terrorists or a threat to an aircraft. It could be very serious,” said Don Strange, a former agent in charge of air marshals in Atlanta. He lost his job attempting to change policies inside the agency. [emphasis Murdoc’s]

Meanwhile, the FBI conducted months of investigations on the Orlando shooter personally but failed to put him on a list, and dimwits in Congress are sitting in to make sure that those on terrorist watch lists can’t buy guns.

Expert: Chattanooga Proves That Military Must Rethink Gun-Free Zones

After gunman Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a Muslim immigrant from Kuwait, allegedly shot and killed four Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee, former NYPD detective Harry Houck said the military’s “gun-free zone” mindset has to change.

Speaking to CNN Newsroom, Houck said, “I’m a Marine. And this really is hitting me a little harder here than normal that [these Marines] weren’t able to protect themselves at the time this occurred.”

“We need people that are armed,” he added. He also said that even if that means getting armed guards, then so be it; something has to change.

Ask those who disagree whether they are anti-Constitution, anti-Marine, or pro-terrorist so you know where they’re coming from.

Anti-gunners think that guns should only be in the hands of police or military, so they have no reason to think Marines shouldn’t have guns.

Fort Dix. Fort Hood. Chattanooga recruiting station.

How many more?

Every time an attack on military personnel occurs, people are flabbergasted that the military didn’t have weapons to fight the attacker. Stop being flabbergasted every single time like it’s an unbelievable thing. It’s a very believable thing. It’s on purpose. People decided that it’s correct for the military be unarmed.

Decide something different.

Was this guy IS? Seems likely, at first glance, but we’ll see. Either way, he was a coward and so are most of those on his side. Let the good guys have guns. Then the cowards will be more hesitant to attack, and if they do they can be sent to hell more quickly.

Michigan Constitutional Carry

Ruger LC9sHouse Bills 4772 – 4778 : Constitutional Carry Comes To Michigan

State Representative Cindy Gamrat (R- District 80) yesterday introduced Michigan HB 4778. HB 4778 will allow for the existing pistol registration to stay in place but allow broad exemptions.

In short, Michigan residents 21 and over who are permitted to own firearms would be able to carry concealed without a CPL. The existing CPL system would remain in place for those who wanted to get one for reciprocity purposes.

This is, in principle, a Good Thing.

Noted in the linked article:

One thing it does lack however is any change to carry on school grounds.

That is and should be a separate issue.

The ‘Opposite of Progress’?

NYPD commissioner’s anti-terror unit draws ire from police reform advocates

The creation of a new counterterrorism unit within the NYPD, which will be armed with “machine guns” and tasked with policing protests as well as guarding the city against any terrorist threat, has drawn heavy criticism from legal groups and police reform advocates.

Police commissioner Bill Bratton announced a new 350-officer strong Strategic Response Group (SRG) on Thursday along with a raft of police reforms including equipping more officers with tasers and body-worn cameras.

Likening non-violent protests against police brutality to terrorist attacks across the ocean isn’t going to win many friends, even when many are inclined to grow tired of the antics of police critics.

Mayors Against MAIG

15% of Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun mayors leave

As it has broadened its attacks on lawmakers and Second Amendment groups like the National Rifle Association, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s aggressive “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” group has experienced a sharp 15-percent drop in mayor-members.

According to a new count, the group’s membership has gone from a high of 1,046 following the shootings at Newtown, Conn.’s Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012 to a low today of 885.

That’s a fast drop of 161 members.

There are probably a number of reasons for the decline. First, it’s no longer as vogue. Secondly, I think a number of politicians are finding out that taking a strong stance against gun ownership backfires. Finally, Bloomberg’s efforts look to be concerned with a lot more than “illegal guns” alone.

Just this week, Poughkeepsie Mayor John Tkazyik bailed. He wrote a letter about in the Poughkeepsie Journal. “I’m no longer a member of MAIG. Why? Just as Ronald Reagan said of the Democratic Party, it left me. And I’m not alone: Nearly 50 pro-Second Amendment mayors have left the organization. They left for the same reason I did. MAIG became a vehicle for Bloomberg to promote his personal gun-control agenda — violating the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and taking resources away from initiatives that could actually work to protect our neighborhoods and save precious lives. Gun control will actually make a bad situation worse.”

Wolf Hunting Opponents Resorting to Lawsuits over Petition Collectors

Wolf hunt opponents challenging Michigan law on collecting signatures for ballot questions

LANSING – Animal rights groups opposed to the law authorizing wolf hunting in Michigan have filed a federal lawsuit challenging the state’s restrictions on how signatures must be collected for ballot questions.

The lawsuit, filed electronically on Sunday by a coalition of groups including Keep Michigan Wolves Protected, asks a federal judge to rule that Michigan’s requirement that petition circulators be Michigan residents is an unconstitutional restriction on First Amendment rights…

State law requires each page of a ballot proposal petition be signed by a witness, who must be qualified to vote in Michigan.

Restrictions to keep out-of-staters from doing too much to influence in-state politics without sufficient support from residents seems reasonable to Murdoc. No one’s saying the out-of-staters can’t speak their mind or contribute to the cause. But Michigan politics need to be based on Michigan residents’ efforts. Without enough Michigan work on it, why should Michigan residents have to give two cents to the personal opinion of someone from Florida?
