That 'Things are wonderful in Australia since the bans and restrictions!' line?

Not so much.
As former Australian politician Tim Fischer turns the shooting of Christopher Lane into an opportunity to push a travel boycott until the U.S. changes its gun laws, police in Sydney launched "a new plan to tackle out-of-control gun violence" there.

According to the Ballina Shire Advocate, "over 9,000 guns have been taken off New South Wales (NSW) streets and 3352 people have charged" during previous operations in the last 12 months alone.

When the anti-rights people admit the truth:
And Mr. Glaze said the movement hasn’t solved one of its signature problems: Many mass shootings wouldn’t have been stopped by tighter regulations proposed  by gun-control advocates, even if they might have prevented other gun crimes.
“The fact that people have learned that the government has taken for itself the right to listen in on our most private conversations has done nothing to inspire faith in government restraint. It’s that lack of faith in government restraint that makes it difficult to do things like ask everybody to take a background check.”
Ya think maybe?
“Because people perceive a mismatch in the policy solutions that we have to offer and the way some of these mass shootings happened, you know, it is a messaging problem for us, I think. … Is it a messaging problem when a mass shooting happens and nothing that we have to offer would have stopped that mass shooting? Sure it’s a challenge in this issue.”
Yeah, it's a challenge when you admit you've been lying about what you want to do and why.

You'll note at the end he goes back to the '80 to 90% of people want this' line; problem is, if that was true it would've happened.  Because that percentage of people would've yelled at their legislators.  They didn't, because they don't; people like Watts and Bloomberg and Glaze are lying about that, too.

Speaking of reasons not to trust the .gov, we have another power grab by the Dept. of Transportation:
The department is intensifying its battle against distracted driving by seeking explicit authority from Congress to regulate navigation aids of all types, including apps on smartphones.

The measure, included in the Obama administration’s proposed transportation bill, would specify that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has the authority to set restrictions on the apps and later order changes if they are deemed dangerous, much the way it currently regulates mechanical features of cars.
Control.  And the car companies are behind it because they want you to have to buy THEIR navigation crap.

Hey, another way to smear people, brought to you by New York and the anti-rights people.
Issued following this month’s Las Vegas killings, a bulletin leaked from the New York State Intelligence Center has warned state law enforcement against a “recent spike in violence” targeting them, and cites a figure familiar to Gun Rights Examiner readers as a catalyst for inspiring those so inclined.

“Michael Brian Vanderboegh, a longtime militia member and founder of the III Percent Patriot Movement which was supported by Jerad and Amanda Miller, travelled to NYS at least once in 2013 to speak to the Liberty Oath Keepers meeting in Monticello, NY.,” the “official use only” bulletin marked “Not for public or media release” advises. “The III Percent Patriots are a militia group comprised primarily of gun rights extremists who believe in the need to use violence against the government to prevent what they believe to be an impending seizure of all private firearms.
It's not called a 'fusion center', but same thing I'd guess.  And about as accurate as the crap that came from the FCs.

Hoyt's opinion on Obama's 'genius'(and other things):
Come on, the biggest thing they have to tout is the fact that he was editor of the Harvard Law review, even if he published nothing. That means IQ, grades and achievement are all of a nullity or very close. Which – yes, I’m going to be crude here – in an age of political correctness when Harvard would want to give him a “win” (i.e. good grades/honors) just because of his color and his exotic religious background, means he must be something special in the way of dumb.

That is important, to an extent, because it means to the extent he’s in control, we’ll get dunce-moves.

Interesting couple of points with the LV murders:

The murderers tried to go to Bunkerville, but were turned away at the gate, and the Dutchman can claim at least some of the credit for identifying them as dangerously unsuitable and turning them away. The event has been pretty well documented in blog posts since the Bunkerville confrontation.

Also one of the people who was murdered, was a second cousin of Will Grigg's wife. Mr Grigg has some comments on the shootings up on Llew Rockwell's site, and in some of his own podcasts and youtubes which he links off the last couple of his Pro Libertate blog posts and in the comments.
