The “news” media is ranting the democrats familiar song, after a muslim jihadi committed atrocities in a gay nightclub: “We must ban the AR-15, a weapon of war, it has no place in the public’s hands. Why does anyone need an AR-15 to murder Bambi?”
It doesn’t matter to the “fair and balanced“ media that the mass murderer (not “gunman,” a deliberate derogatory sexist slur against men—and guns) didn’t use or even have an AR-15.
It doesn’t matter that banning the AR-15 would have zero effect on what was done, or what the next jihad assault will do. All that matters is that murders create political capital and useful propaganda that influence useful idiots to press Congress to act against the Constitution. And they do. For shame.
What democrats and anti-rights bigots want is
Our Featured Speaker was Dave Kopp of the AzCDL
If you want to protect your Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Arizona,
AzCDL is where grassroots activists take a stand, working at the Arizona legislature, to get strong pro-rights bills written and passed into law, while stopping bad bills.
Without a reminder, the human mind simply forgets. Thomas Paine wrote, “It is at all times necessary… that we frequently refresh our patriotism by reference to first principles.” Writing about America’s first settlers, John Adams reminded his readers of the Puritan’s courageous pursuit of liberty.
“It was this great struggle [between the people and tyranny] that peopled America. It was not religion alone, as is commonly supposed; but it was a love of universal liberty, and a hatred, a dread, a horror, of [tyranny]… [The Puritans] had been so vexed and tortured by the powers of those days, for no other crime than their knowledge and their freedom of inquiry… that they at last resolved to fly to the wilderness for refuge…
It may be thought polite and fashionable by many modern fine gentlemen, perhaps, to

By Hans A. von Spakovsky — May 20, 2016 National Review (penalties ordered are in bold, below)
In one of the most devastating critiques I have ever read of the misbehavior of lawyers at the U.S. Justice Department, a federal judge has issued an order imposing sanctions in U.S. v. Texas, the immigration lawsuit filed by 26 states that is currently before the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Andrew Hanen of the Southern District of Texas, which is the federal trial court where the lawsuit was originally filed, released a 28-page opinion on May 19 that takes the Justice Department and its lawyers to task for violating multiple ethics and court rules by intentionally misleading and lying to the court.
Hanen starts off his order by citing the dialogue from the 2015 movie Bridge of Spies. He quotes attorney James Donovan telling an FBI agent that what distinguishes us is “the rulebook”: “We call it the Constitution and we agree to the rules and that’s what makes us American,” says Donovan. Hanen writes that this entire case is about “allegiance to the rulebook,” whether it is “the Constitution or statutory law.” Both Judge Hanen and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decided the government has to play by the rules, and the final decision on that issue is now with the Supreme Court, according to Hanen.
But what remains with Judge Hanen is whether “the Government’s lawyers must play by the rules.” He held that they clearly did not, saying that it is

(Here is why we could not kill the Ex-Im Bank - a look under the blankets-Pat)
At a recent panel hosted by the National Bureau of Economic Research, the senior tax counsel for General Electric explicitly stated what the company's executives had suggested: As a policy, the company will avoid doing business in states whose congressmen oppose federal subsidy programs.
Check out the slide below from the presentation, by GE's Bobby Burgner and Douglas Lindholm of the Council On State Taxation (COST).
The presentation wasn't about export subsidies. It was about state tax policies and how they affect business decisions. This slide listed some "deal killers": factors that would cause GE to stay out of a state. One of three factors: "Unwillingness to Support 'Big Picture' Interests."
Translated: A congressional delegation that opposes the Export-Import Bank. Ex-Im
Common Sense: Independence (1776)
After reading Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, many citizens shared the pamphlet with friends. George Washington described the general reaction to Common Sense: “My countrymen I know, from their form of government, and steady attachment heretofore to royalty, will come reluctantly into the idea of independence, but time and persecution bring many wonderful things to pass; and by private letters, which I have lately received from Virginia, I find "Common Sense" is working a powerful change there in the minds of many men.” George Washington, Letter to Joseph Reed, April 1, 1776
“… We ought to reflect, that there are three different ways by which an independency may hereafter be effected, and that one of those three, will, one day or other, be the fate of America…  By the legal voice of the people in Congress;  by a military power, or  by a mob… Should an independency be brought about by the first of those means, we have
