JPFO Alert: Is Federal Express the Newest Enemy of Privately Manufactured Firearms?

Today's JPFO Alert wonders if Federal Express might more accurately be named "Statist Express."

And perhaps it was premature to declare that FedEx has no affiliation with the Federal Government. It's hard to know what backroom carrot-and/or-stick negotiations between the two entities might have taken place. Could there have been a kind of "Operation Choke Point"-like\ pressure applied? Or perhaps the promise of some fat government shipping contracts? It's impossible to say, but given this administration's hostility to private gun ownership--particularly as it would look like when millions of Americans could produce effective, militia-appropriate fighting rifles in total anonymity in their own homes, it's difficult to rule out some quiet federal involvement.

Whether this stance is one that Federal Express chose to take on its own, or simply allowed to be dictated to them by the federal government, they have, as Defense Distributed says, put "the 'Fed' in 'Federal Express.'" They're playing for the wrong side.

Doctor claims it dangerous to 'expose' young teenagers to machine guns

Delamater is a doctor of child and adolescent psychology, who apparently focuses on the psychological impact of childhood obesity and diabetes. How such a focus contributes to his competency to determine what effect, if any, might result from a young teenager's "exposure" to people enjoying the fun of target shooting with fully-automatic firearms would seem a fair question.

JPFO Alert: Proposed Ammo Ban is Illegal Attack on Americans' Rights

Today's JPFO Alert notes that not only does the proposed-to-be-banned M855 ammo not meet the legal definition of "armor piercing," but that a free people must not be denied the ability to pierce the armor of would-be oppressors.

More fundamental, of course, is the fact that the very reason that for the citizenry to be free, we must have a right to keep and bear arms (not, readers will note, a "right to keep and bear sporting goods") that shall not be infringed, is that we must have access to weapons with which we can pose a credible threat to the government's enforcers, if that government makes such action necessary. The M855 rounds are a part of that credible threat--and that is undoubtedly why this administration is trying to neutralize it.

Legal suppressors may come to Illinois

Suppressors are safety equipment, in that they dramatically reduce the danger of permanent hearing loss. Anyone who opposes more permissive suppressor laws is effectively in favor of Americans suffering damage to their hearing. [More]

U.S. Senator says millions of Americans are 'arming against the government

Murphy is frightened of a well armed American citizenry. This is very good news. Those who would presume to govern a free people should be mortally afraid of the wrath of the people whose rights they threaten.

The bills, between them, have 125 sponsors and co-sponsors. Clearly, the American people must have access to 125-round magazines. [More]

JPFO Alert: Bloomberg States His "No Guns for Negroes" Policy in Most Blatant Terms Yet

Today's JPFO Alert notes the old news of the racism inherent to "gun control"--old news that gets no less heinous with age.

And he is still proud of his stop-and-frisk jihad. In his Aspen speech, he reminisced about speaking at a Baptist church in Harlem, back when he was Mayor. In introducing him to the congregation, the minister told them that "if every one of you stopped and frisked your kid before they went out at night, the mayor wouldn't have to do it."

Can the disease of nanny-statism get any more virulent than is demonstrated by a government official being praised for violating citizens' rights, in order to cover for the supposed deficiencies of the violated citizens' parents?

JPFO Alert: Sandy Hook Advisory Commission Not Done Adding New Infringements to List

Today's JPFO Alert notes that to gun ban zealots, forcible citizen disarmament laws are like potato chips--you can't stop at just one. These gluttons can't stop while there are any privately owned guns at all.

Now wait a second. Right after proving that the real intent behind requiring registration of "assault weapons" was to facilitate their confiscation, they demand registration of every other gun, as well? The commission members clearly have no more respect for gun owners' intelligence than they do for their rights.
