John Kasich makes push for gun control

Ohio Governor and former presidential candidate John Kasich is pushing for gun control again. This time, his plan is to bring together “reasonable people” to bring about limits to the 2nd Amendment.

“My purpose is to get people who respect the Second Amendment but can agree there are some limits to it, to sit in a room to develop policy I can pass on to the leadership in my legislature,” he said. “Without this process I’m not convinced we’ll make progress. I know just arguing back and forth not working.”

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Kasich highlighted recent events in Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs to promote the idea that we need to limit gun rights. He repeatedly mentioned respecting the 2nd Amendment while invoking a need to curtail it.

“Ohio is a place where people want to solve problems,” Kasich said. “They’re willing to listen. I want to get a group of reasonable people, pro-gun people. And those who favored limits on gun ownership. I want to put ‘em in a room and see if we can find common ground.”

Kasich has been rumored to be considering another run for the White House in 2020:

John Kasich wants to ruin 2020 like he ruined 2016

https://noqreport.com/2017/10/20/john-kasich-wants-ruin-2020-like-ruined-2016/There’s currently speculation that his aloofness about running may be a sign that he’s considering it. Duh. There’s also a report that he met with foreign policy advisers yesterday. Unless Ohio is considering declaring war on Iceland, this isn’t just speculation anymore. Governor Kasich is intending to run for President in 2020.

Thankfully, that doesn’t necessarily mean he will. His intention in 2017 is irrelevant when we consider the earliest he could possibly make it official is still a year-and-a-half away. That means there’s time to knock some sense into him. There’s time for him to find other ways to raise money other than running a corrupt campaign. There are other ways for him to stay in the public spotlight he craves other than putting Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren in the Oval Office.

My Take

No serious 2nd Amendment advocate wants someone to carry a minigun into an elementary school, but there are plenty of laws on the books that are intended to prevent abuse of the right. The challenge is with the domino effect. Once we start giving in to the emotional calls for limits to the 2nd Amendment, we will see further actions popping up as a result.

Most gun control groups don’t want to stop at bump stocks and clip limits. They want to take away as many guns as possible… if not all of them. Giving in a little will lead to them taking much, much more. Kasich’s heart seems to be squarely stuck in the middle where he’s always been politically. He wants to toe the fine line between the two parties and try to build a bipartisan coalition to support him. It won’t work, but there’s still much damage he can do along the way.

Gun grabbing is a process that starts with ‘common sense’ measures and leads to oppression

http://noqreport.com/2017/10/04/gun-grabbing-process-starts-common-sense-measures-leads-oppression/It’s important to understand the speed at which things change in society today because the vast majority of Americans cannot imagine the need to defend themselves against oppression from within. We assume that the government has our back and will always have our back as long as we pay our taxes and don’t rip the labels off our mattresses. It’s unfathomable that circumstances may arise that convinces the government we’d all be better off if they seized more control, Constitution be damned.

    I say we put HIM in a room with Ted Nuggent and Dana Loesch and see how that works out.

      Spot-on. “Common Sense Gun Control” = next step in plan to confiscate all guns from civilian hands except for the elite.

      What part of “shall not be infringed” do these yahoos not understand? It does not say, “infringed only a little bit”, “infringed by application of common sense gun laws” it says most clearly “shall NOT be infringed”

John Conyers’ denial of wrongdoing is exactly what’s wrong with abusive men in power

John Conyers denial of wrongdoing is exactly whats wrong with abusive men in power

The longest-sitting member of Congress, Democrat John Conyers of Michigan, is “expressly and vehemently” denying any wrongdoing following Buzzfeed’s blockbuster report that he paid off a former employee by three extra months of pay after firing her for what she claims was opposition to his sexual advances.

She Said A Powerful Congressman Harassed Her. Here’s Why You Didn’t Hear Her Story.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/paulmcleod/she-complained-that-a-powerful-congressman-harassed-her?utm_term=.kwaeyWOB5#.yakGXl5EOConyers confirmed he made the settlement in a statement Tuesday afternoon, hours after this story was published, but said that he “vehemently denied” the claims of sexual harassment at the time and continues to do so.

And the documents also reveal the secret mechanism by which Congress has kept an unknown number of sexual harassment allegations secret: a grinding, closely held process that left the alleged victim feeling, she told BuzzFeed News, that she had no option other than to stay quiet and accept a settlement offered to her.

Unlike accusations that keep popping up on a seemingly daily basis, this one has a very clear paper trail. That the Congressman is denying “wrongdoing” exemplifies a bigger problem than just sexual misconduct. Men like Conyers do bad things, but more importantly they truly believe they should get away with it.

“No wrongdoing” is legaleze

There seems to be no difference, at least in the minds of people like Conyers, between getting away with doing wrong and not actually doing it. At no point yet has Conyers claimed he isn’t a creep who uses his power to manipulate women he employs into being sexual objects for him. That isn’t what’s important to him. What’s important is that he got his victims to sign documents absolving him legally from his actions.

For this reason, he believes he needs to continue to represent the people of Michigan who have kept him in office for half a century.

This is a systemic problem that exists everywhere in free America, but the fact that it’s apparently rampant in Washington DC is utterly disgusting. In a seven-year period, Congress dished out millions of dollars to 235 people for “workplace violations.” Perhaps more infuriating is that it’s not the perpetrators, their campaigns, or their Congressional offices who pay for these settlements. They’re paid by taxpayers.

How Congress plays by different rules on sexual harassment and misconduct

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/how-congress-plays-by-different-rules-on-sexual-harassment-and-misconduct/2017/10/26/2b9a8412-b80c-11e7-9e58-e6288544af98_story.htmlWhen settlements do occur, members do not pay them from their own office funds, a requirement in other federal agencies. Instead, the confidential payments come out of a special U.S. Treasury fund.

Congressional employees have received small settlements, compared with the amounts some public figures pay out. Between 1997 and 2014, the U.S. Treasury has paid $15.2 million in 235 awards and settlements for Capitol Hill workplace violations, according to the congressional Office of Compliance. The statistics do not break down the exact nature of the violations.

How do we stop this from happening? How can we protect the women and men who are victimized? How do we get these creeps out of the halls of power in our nation’s capital? We need to make it as transparent as possible.

Every settlement dollar should be broadcast to the world

If an incident is worthy of having taxpayer dollars used to hush people up, then the people need to know about it. We need to know who did what. While payment of settlements aren’t always done because of actual crimes committed, we should have the ability to discern for ourselves when an elected official does something worthy of a payout.

The club in DC is corrupt. We all know this. While it may be hard to track down all of the wrongdoing, we can at least attempt to address the misconduct by public officials against their own employees. That’s a reasonable expectation.

‘Ghost Guns’ prove that gun control can never work as promised

Ghost Guns prove that gun control can never work as promised

The Rancho Tehama Shooting demonstrated that gun control only empowers the government and criminals while making the situation far worse for the innocent.

Last week the Leftist media came to the astounding realisation that criminals don’t obey the law and that they can make their own guns, negating any kind of control or confiscation regimes. Were the media knowledgeable on the subject, they would have been aware of these facts. So let us endeavour to educate them on the reality of guns and that they should be looking elsewhere if they truly want to ‘protect the children’.

The basic technology of firearms makes them easy to produce.

In simplest terms a firearm is merely a container for a chemical reaction that produces high pressure gas to apply force to a projectile. It essentially only has a few components, that being the chemical propellant, projectile, ignition source and the container itself. The technology grew out of the invention of gun powder more than a thousand years ago with the first cannons appearing more than 700 years ago.

The technology has advanced to where the propellant, projectile and ignition source are combined into a self-contained package called a cartridge that is activated by a firing mechanism. A gun that holds and fires one cartridge at a time is the simplest and easiest to produce. The primary innovations of this technology revolved around how these cartridges (or rounds) are placed and extracted from the container (i.e. the firing chamber and barrel) which enabled the firing of multiple shots. The earliest repeating firearms have multiple chambers and been around for 160 years. Mechanisms to extract and chamber a fresh round to be fired with one trigger pull are termed semi-automatic and when the mechanism does this on a continuous basis with one trigger pull it is an automatic firearm. (These have been around for over 100 years)

There is nothing really magical or mysterious about these relatively simple machines that were in fact the first internal combustion engines. Thus it is merely a case of obtaining a tube of sufficient strength and dimensions to hold and fire a cartridge, a system to change out them out and a firing mechanism. Over the years there have been plenty of examples of guns made from common materials and with 3D printers

Gun control can never work.

One of the biggest Utopian fantasies of the Left is that guns can somehow be taken from the people and everyone will live happily ever after. The problem with this kind of fanciful thinking is that it ignores the fact that one cannot ban the raw materials for making a gun so criminals will always have them. They have been made by inmates in high security correctional institutions around the world and by criminals on the street.
If inmates in high security prisons can somehow fashion guns out of common materials, how can one stop criminals from building them on the outside?

The Takeaway

No one should be under the illusion that the gun grabbers actually care about ‘gun safety’ or protecting the children. If that were the case they wouldn’t be working towards gun confiscation as their ultimate goal – and lying about it every step of the way. As has been demonstrated, these weapons can be easily replicated as in the California example. Even if they were able to fool people into turning in their guns, they would soon be at a severe disadvantage by those who ignore the law. The gun grabber fantasy is that a ‘gun-free’ nation would be progressive paradise, this has been shown to not be the case with gun crime having an 27% increase in UK this year.

If the Left really cared about the issue, they would forget about gun control and power it engenders to the government and concern themselves with criminal control instead.

Brooklyn College to police: No bathroom for you

Brooklyn College to police No bathroom for you

They say a tree grows in Brooklyn. Those trees might be in new trouble, based on an outrageous bathroom policy by a taxpayer-funded public college trying to keep police – including many officers of color – from going anywhere near its precious students.

Brooklyn College, one of the flagship four-year colleges in the taxpayer-funded City University of New York system, is directing officers in need to a dilapidated, filthy and obscure bathroom at the outskirts of the campus. According to one report, the bathroom has an “out of order” sign on one stall, no soap and no paper towels.

A spokesman for the college said the policy is meant to encourage officers to use the select facility rather than “walking across either quadrangle” (the large grassy spaces between the college’s primary buildings). However, anti-police animus among the student body may be the cause.

The current student government president speculates some students are afraid of the police. A college student newspaper recently tied students’ discomfort to a New York Police Department undercover surveillance operation of students at the campus. The discomfort does not appear to be about crime; when a college maintenance worker got arrested in 2015 for selling cocaine on campus, students protested – the police!

A petition to the college president to ban police from the campus entirely is reportedly being circulated. But don’t count on the college administration stepping in to stop the apparent sanctuary campus policy towards criminals, or terrorists. The college invited Bernie Sanders to be its commencement speaker last spring.

There was also a total lack of soap and paper towels.
