A Democrat mayor and a NPR 'reporter' who lie about guns;

surprise?  Elle Moxley, one more properly described as 'journalist' because she's a sorry excuse for a reporter.
“‘Guns are more readily available than fresh food,’says @MayorSlyJames,” Moxley told her followers. “Wants lawmakers to focus on jobs, not gun legislation like SB 656.”

Noting other tweets where she repeats more fraudulent noise-making by James, that if open carry by permit holders is approved, “dine and dash” incidents will increase,” and that not infringing on the right to keep and bear arms is “overboard” to “the point of insanity,” it’s clear where Moxley’s sympathies lie, and what she perceives her “profession of journalism” duties to be. As an aside, it’s curious which side “dine and dash” advocacy actually comes from, but “progressive” projection and Opposite Day realities are hardly surprising to regulars at my WarOnGuns blog.

On the other side, we have some rabbis saying "Disarm?  Are you nuts?"
“Jewish history supports self-defense,” the rabbis declared. “It is remarkable that the RCA and OU have ignored the long Jewish history of persecution.
“We have a duty of self-defense under Jewish Law,” the rabbis argued. “The Torah recognizes armed self-defense as a requirement for a free people ... the Tanach praises self-defense [and] Channukah celebrates self-defense. [The RCA and OU should] reconsider their prior positions, and instead encourage Jews to remain ready, vigilant, and armed.

Reason #I'velosttrack why to get rid of the EPA: They're a bunch of corrupt bastards.
The Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) released a report today revealing and piecing together dozens of emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which lay out in detail EPA’s collusion with senior activists within environmentalist pressure groups, and proving the real thinking about the intent behind and impact of EPA’s “climate” regulations.

Far from the required recusing to avoid the appearance of a conflict, EPA filled its senior political ranks with green pressure group activists, continuing their life’s work and coordinating with former colleagues from their new positions in government. These emails show the groups sharing jokes about EPA assurances that it isn’t waging a war on coal, and gloating about the courts serially siding with EPA as it rewrites federal environmental law. More important, they show the special role and undue influence these relationships provided, the very sort of influence the Obama Administration once disavowed.
The emails discussed in the report demonstrate how Coequyt supplied research and advocacy materials directly to individual activists within EPA, even helping EPA keep a score for “internal use” of coal plants to shut down. He advised EPA officials to ensure “zombie” coal plants, i.e. plants that had been planned and may one day be built, remain shelved avoided creating complete logs of their interactions through various means, including, e.g., meeting with Goo at the nearby Marriott Hotel near the EPA headquarters (circumventing detailing their discussions in EPA’s visitor logs, where people most logically would look), and when he was otherwise in the building including for numerous meetings with senior officials Goo facilitated had such a direct pipeline into the Agency that when he was on vacation his Sierra Club team would plead with EPA friends for updates.
