In the People's Republic of New Jersey, you can spend 3 years in prison for having a pellet gun and not having a firearms license. In the definition noted in a comment:
It shall also include, without limitation, any firearm which is in the nature of an air gun, spring gun or pistol or other weapon of a similar nature in which the propelling force is a spring, elastic band, carbon dioxide, compressed or other gas, or vapor, air or compressed air, or is ignited by compressed air, and ejecting a bullet or missile smaller than three-eighths of an inch in diameter, with sufficient force to injure a person.
So if you get your kid a BB rifle, and don't have a FIREARMS LICENSE, you go to prison. Just effin' wonderful.
Arrested for DUI with a blood alcohol content of 0. Which there is no damn excuse for.
Nancy Pelosi might be giving aid and comfort to terrorists? At this point, wouldn't surprise me at all. Reports on Rep. Jim McGovern(Commie-Who cares) assisting FARC have come out before, after that bigshot's laptop was grabbed; Pelosi being involved- especially after her actions to crap on Colombia- is no surprise(she's a 'Progressive', after all).
Also on Pelosi, seems her promised 'Democrat plan to cut oil prices' still doesn't amount to squat. It seems to be "Prevent any drilling, blame Bush, and screw with the markets, since the latter worked so well in the 70's.
Saw this at Theo's the other day; it seems that Britain is not just circling the drain, you can hear a gurgle now:
The National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.
This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.
The guidance by the NCB is designed to draw attention to potentially-racist attitudes in youngsters from a young age.
Warning that failing to pick children up on their racist attitudes could instil prejudice, the NCB adds that if children "reveal negative attitudes, the lack of censure may indicate to the child that there is nothing unacceptable about such attitudes".
Yeah, nothing indicates racism than a little kid looking at an unusual food and saying 'Eeeew'. Friggin' morons.
Once again, self-defense is referred to as 'taking the law into your own hands'. Absolute crap. And no, I don't care that she 'lost' her grandson. Take special note of this line:
When they tried to force John Lovell into the bathroom, he pulled out a gun and shot both men, police said.
Generally speaking, there are two things you never, never do: One is if a robber/kidnapper wants you to get into a vehicle, you don't go. Because the reason he wants to take you away is to have more time to rape/torture/murder you. The second is, in a robbery like this, if someone tries to force you into another room it's not because they want you to use a mirror: it's because they want to do something out of sight of witnesses.
When her grandson decided to pull an armed robbery, he put himself on the wrong side of the law and put his own life at risk, whether from a cop or from one of his victims; when he tried to force the man into the bathroom, the man had reason to think he was about to be murdered and should act accordingly. 'Law into his own hands' my ass.
And last, DC is still trying to weasel around the Constitution and make things as difficult as possible, and keep a ban on the (more)politically-incorrect firearms. Statist morons.
Now, to borrow Kim's line, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to the range.
