40 Places to hide your guns

January 24, 2013 Comments off

In late December a New York newspaper, the Journal News, posted an interactive online map of New York residents in two counties who had gun permits. If you were a criminal looking to find a gun, the Journal News article was a treasure map leading you straight to the booty. Criminals broke into several of those homes shortly after the information was published. Just days ago, Journal News publishers conceded maybe it was a bad idea, and took down the gun map. But not before the damage had been done.

Most Americans will give up their guns when they are told do so. Not necessarily because they are afraid to die, although most are, but because they are so used to giving up what the government mandates be turned over. Guns may just be the next takeaway in a long list of abuses by the State.

Others will come to the conclusion that guns no longer serve a purpose vis-à-vis protection from government tyranny because they have already given up all the rights that matter. From free speech to freedom of the press, all that which was once held sacred has been fully abridged. Even Bill Maher, a liberal’s liberal, gets that irony.

As the Huffington Post reported last month, the debt deal that has already been passed by the House and faces the Senate tomorrow will create an unconstitutional “Super Congress” that will be comprised of six Republicans and six Democrats and granted “extraordinary new powers” to quickly force legislation through both chambers.

Legislation decided on by the Super Congress would be immune from amendment and lawmakers would only be able to register an up or down vote, eliminating the ability to filibuster. The Speaker of the House would effectively lose the power to prevent unpopular bills from making it to the House floor.

But far from just being a committee that would make recommendations concerning the debt ceiling, the body is now to be granted Read more…

When the final hammer came down at the end of the December auction at Holt’s Auctioneers — which specializes in the sale of classic English shotguns — total sales had hit a record $2.72 million. Among the hot sellers: a pair of Purdey shotguns had sold for $131,200, while two guns made by Holland & Holland went for $128,000. “Those are impressive and reassuring figures,” says Roland Elworthy, a valuer at Holt’s. Meanwhile Sotheby’s, whose sporting-guns sales are handled by Gavin Gardiner Limited, also enjoyed a healthy December auction — one buyer paid $134,400 for a single Boss & Co. 12-gauge shotgun. “Demand is as strong as I’ve ever seen it,” enthuses Gardiner, who has been auctioning classic firearms for 25 years.
