ALERT: ATF beta UnConstitutional Gun Registry in Alaska, NYPD convicted of smuggling M16's for NYC Gangs!

Among just some of 2nd Amend. related News today at The Truth About Guns.

Alan Gottlieb of the 2nd Amendment Foundation, and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA):

Bloomberg is running around the country, worrying about privately-owned firearms, while the city was issuing guns to dirty cops. The activities of Rivera and Jimenez are an insult to every honest and decent hard-working police officer in New York City. Bloomberg’s national campaign against private gun ownership is an insult to every law-abiding gun owner in the country; people who wouldn’t dream of running drugs like this pair of city-armed rogue cops.

Mayor Bloomberg likes to hold all gun owners responsible for crimes committed by people with guns... He routinely smears the reputations of reputable gun dealers because a few have, perhaps inadvertently, violated some gun regulation. By the same logic, he should be held responsible for crimes committed by sworn officers, including an auxiliary sergeant, who engage in criminal activity under the cover of their badges and guns.

If Michael Bloomberg wants to attack criminal activity by armed outlaws, we suggest he stick to his own turf and concentrate on his own people rather than citizens in other states. He’s not their mayor, he’s not their president and he’s not their king. He’s just become a big pain in their necks.

AMEN!

CCRKBA To NYC Mayor Bloomberg: Disarm the Cops And STFU
Posted on April 5, 2012 by Robert Farago

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) may have a mnemonically-challenged moniker, but they sure are some hard core mo’ fo’s. Who else would tell Big Apple Gun Grabber Mayor Michael Bloomberg to disarm New York’s finest? Well, the bad cops. Yes, it’s a pretty dumb argument. If a cop can’t be trusted with a gun, he shouldn’t be a cop. Or, to be fair, she. Anyway, it’s always nice to see Hizzoner get his nose rubbed in his own mess—even if gun rights advocates have to stretch their argument like taffy to mix my metaphors. I mean, reality check the bastard. Make the jump for the CCRKABATSTFU’s press release. It is SO worth it. Oh and whatever happened to those five NYC cops accused of gun smuggling?

BELLEVUE, WA – With the convictions of two former New York police officers, one a retired NYPD officer and the other an auxiliary sergeant, for drug offenses, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today suggested that anti-gun Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his sights set on the wrong people to disarm. “Instead of disarming law-abiding American citizens,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “perhaps Mayor Bloomberg should keep guns out of the hands of some cops on his public payroll.”

Former police officer Alfredo Rivera was carrying his department-issue 9mm pistol when he and then-Sgt. Rafael Jimenez agreed to move 10 kilograms – about 20 pounds – of cocaine to a buyer in the Bronx at a meeting in January 2010. Two months later, again armed with the same pistol, Rivera showed up at a Long Island warehouse picking up what appeared to be cocaine, and then transported it to the Bronx. Jimenez pulled a 127-month prison sentence and Rivera will be sentenced on May 18, according to an FBI press release.

Proving once again, that statist commissars are nothing more than, literally, a gang of thieves, smugglers, rapists, kidnappers, torturers, and murderers. Doubly hilarious, considering how rabidly anti-gun 'Mayor' Bloomerg is, to have his own lackeys smuggle guns INTO NYC! LOL

Considering this came out at last quarter of 2011, think all Bloomberg's current anti-gun campaign is simply a cover for his own city's corruption and ineptitude?

Um, duh?

Karma? Or just simply a bunch of statist thugs, being a bunch of statist thugs?

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Five present and three former New York City cops are among 12 suspects under arrest in connection with a scheme to smuggle guns, cigarettes and slot machines into New York City.

“An officer who betrays his badge, betrays every honorable officer as well as every member of the public,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said at a news conference. “A gang of police officers who should have been keeping guns off the street — instead smuggled 20 firearms into the city.”

The charges were released Tuesday in a detailed criminal complaint. The investigation was conducted by the FBI and NYPD Internal Affairs over the past two years.

Alaskan ATF Agents Violating Federal Ban on Gun Registration

Posted on April 5, 2012 by Robert Farago

Under The National Firearm Owners Protection Act, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive (and Really Big Fires) is forbidden from keeping a gun registry. Alaskan Libertarians are raising the alarm re: an ATF sweep on state gun dealers. Press release:

“Anchorage gun shops are being visited by BATFE agents that are requesting the shops 4473 forms as far back as 2007. They claim they want to make copies of the “book”. This is de facto registration, against the law, and BATFE knows it. Please inform everyone you know about this and notify any gun dealers you know that they don’t have to comply. Contact your congressman and senators and demand a full investigation. Don Young and our Senators have been informed about what is happening. Congressman Young is acutely interested but our senators seem to be indifferent. You can go to their websites to find their email forms.” Make the jump for contact details.

How a PRIVATE entity SHOULD take care of their own property on the high seas: Private security go weapons free with M4's to 'scare off' would be Somali Pirates

Private Security Guards Repel Somali Pirates

Posted on April 5, 2012 by Robert Farago

No background on this clip from liveleak.com showing private security guards using ye olde M4 to discourage Somali pirates from boarding a commercial vessel going about its business off the coast of Africa. Methinks it’s only a matter of time before the pirates alter their strategy. And the guards end-up paraphrasing Bullwinkle J. Moose: I gotta get me a bigger gun. [h/t Bryan]
