January 22, 2013

When the Washington County Sheriff’s Office goes to order ammunition this year, a long wait is expected before the order arrives, said Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks....

I just love that you people are so naive about your own heros but can sure look up the junk on someone you don't agree with !!None of the stuff your heros do even rate a comment about but the minor things your opponents do, is a SIN..

Those were many years ago and he will tell you that he was a mess back then. He has changed now and has been married to the same wonderful lady for years. You can't hold things against people forever or we would all be losers. Everyone has made bad judgements one time or another, unless you think you are perfect.!!And what Ted said, that retired editor from the Des Moines Register threatened Boehner, the NRA, and others saying they should be killed and as far as I know, the FBI never even paid him a visit like they did Ted and Ted threatened to kill himself!! No one else.. Double standard??? YES.

Nugent said, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

Hmmm, thought he was just on TV the other day?? POS...

In September 2009, Nugent embarked on a hunt near Somerset, El Dorado County, California. He was accompanied by a guide and a cameraman, filming for his Outdoor Channel show "Spirit of the Wild.". . California Fish and Game wardens who watched the broadcast noticed that it showed Nugent killing a very young buck which had been attracted by commercial bait. Both the killing of such a young deer and the use of bait are crimes under California state law. On August 13, 2010, he pled no contest in Yuba County to two misdemeanors: illegally baiting a deer, and failing to have a deer tag signed by a government official after a kill. He was fined USD $1,750 by the court and was banned from hunting in California until June 2012. In April 2012 Nugent signed a plea bargaining agreement to plead guilty to two misdemeanors for illegally taking a bear after shooting one earlier at a bait station. He will be fined $10,000, banned from hunting in Alaska and on Federal land.

A little background on good role Ted...

He has had two wives and has eight children, including three out of wedlock in two liaisons almost 30 years apart. In the late 1960s, prior to his first marriage, Nugent fathered a boy, Ted (Mann) and a girl, whom he gave up for adoption in infancy. In 2005 Nugent was involved in a legal battle for not paying enough child support for a child he had out of wedlock in 1995.

In 1978, Nugent began a relationship with seventeen-year-old Hawaii native Pele Massa. Due to the age difference they could not marry so Nugent joined Massa's parents in signing documents to make himself her legal guardian.

He's a POS...

Ted Nugent gives a lot back to the society that made him famous and he knows and appreciates that. He helps underpriveledge kids alot. But you never took the time to look that up did you?? You are too busy wasting time slandering him. (As does the NRA help kids). The reason he stand up for us is he knows our hearts !!

Everyone knows the dems are the best ammo and gun salespeople, when they are in power. Also, they get everyone to join the NRA. It isn't silly when you read for the last year that the statement has been made numerous times that they want to get another gun ban going. Nevermind that bans do absolutely nothing to curb crime. BY THE FBI's own reports. Not FOX or CNN or some idiot that has taken a poll.

I think the ammunition manufacturers need to work overtime or hire more people to keep up with the demand.. You know, supply and demand theory. But that would make your icon look better by upping the jobs numbers for the quarter and by your own words, I am a hater and despiser.

However, these incidents are not as isolated as they may appear. An NBC News survey of crime dockets and news reports across all 50 states reveals that, since Jan. 1, there have been at least 48 incidents in which guns have been discovered on students, in their bags or in their lockers.

There were at least five last Thursday alone: in Atlanta; Augusta, Kan.; Chicago; Raleigh, N.C.; and Winston-Salem, N.C.

The survey excluded incidents in which pupils were caught with toy guns; all of the weapons were handguns, rifles, BB guns or air rifles.)

So much for these parents being Responsible Gun Owners

Across the country, children are being suspended or arrested for having weapons on campus or buses on a daily basis. Police in Henrico, Va., were waiting at school for the little boy Monday morning after he allegedly threatened another pupil on their ride to Ratcliffe Elementary School. They found a handgun in his backpack, NBC station WWBT of Richmond, Va. reported.

The incident made national headlines Monday, as did a similar incident when a loaded gun was found in a pupil's book bag last month at P.S. 215 in Queens, N.Y.

Well clearly, IF I had access to the trace data that law enforcement has about the guns recovered in Chicago, I'd be able to tell you EXACTLY where they came from.

Yes, a good bit of guns criminals get are the result of "straw purchases." They get family members, or friends they know have zero criminal records to buy their guns. And, that shows how effective a universal background check would be. They already, under state law in California, require background checks for any gun that is transferred. They also still have the same amount of crimes involving guns.

Bottom line, if all you're going to do is insult anyone who disagrees with you, perhaps Art needs to issue you a "time out!"

Freddie, the reports on the source county in Illinois weren't broken down enough to say whether the guns in Chicago were sourced in Southern counties. I doubt the folks from Southern Illinois venture to the "Windy City" too much. And the gangs in Chicago aren't venturing to Southern counties to buy guns.

I resent even the claim that I'm posting stuff that would paint me as paranoid, because I don't do it. I'm not afraid of anything, I own firearms for sport shooting and home/self defense. And if you're suggesting that people just like me arm ourselves for those purposes are paranoid, that's hardly the case. We're prepared!

Actually, the majority of guns recovered from the gang thugs in Chicago came from gun shops in Illinois. A state where it's required to have a "firearms ownership ID" card to purchase a gun. So, the gun in question was likely a stolen gun.

And, that guy, as you call him a nut in Al. was a US VietNam vet that was protecting your butt while you were skipping out by going to college so you could be a svelt teacher!!!!. Did you also run to Canada to get out of going to war?? You make me sick.!! Now you are trampling the vets like you are a big man..Arpaio is a hero to the people in AZ and half of the normal (not Dems) people in the US. If I am responsible for the guy in AL then you are responsible for the killer that Chicago let loose on error, again!!

So, Oneill, as a #1, I am responsible for the #3's. It is for predjudiced people like you that I fear for ALL of my rights. You cannot lump all people into one category like that. If you did that with race, you wouldn't last long in todays society but on these blogs it is OK to slam whoever you want. You have absolutely no proof the Chicago gun came from a straw purchase. Yeah, go on get outta here. You are stinking the place up anyhow with your rotten opinions. And you are LOSING...

Seems a rather pointless gesture to answer your "which one" question, Freddie. You already claimed I was a vigilante, yet you claim you don't insult gun owners here.

I'm well aware of what Scalia wrote. Yes, he said there could be restrictions on certain types of weapons, those are already restricted. He also said what I noted.

I agree 100% with sickhauler.

So, let's fix the gang problem, drug problem, and put the insane in treatment facilities where they won't endanger society. Until then, I don't want to hear the BS about gun bans! On the poll of NRA members, we all know how polls are. I bet no one in rural America was polled. Just the New Emgland nuts in the city. And the question was probably phrased to go along with other controls, like what stickhauler said here.

Seeing an increase in crime, and brutal murders by Herb Mullin, a mental hospital patient, the state legislature passed a law that would stop Reagan from closing even more state-funded mental health hospitals. But Reagan would not be outdone. In 1980, congress proposed new legislation (PL 96-398) called the community mental health systems act (crafted by Ted Kennedy), but the program was killed by newly-elected President Ronald Reagan. This action ended the federal community mental health centers (see timeline on this link) program and its funding.

In closing, the next time you pass by a homeless person in downtown San Francisco screaming to themselves at the top of their lungs, remember Reagan. And if your kids need to go out and get jobs at age 9 to pay down the national debt, be sure to tell them that they can thank Ronald Reagan, and now President Bush, for their misfortune.

wonder that California seems to have all of the crazy homeless people? State mental hospitals were taken away by Governor Reagan in the seventies, and federal mental health programs were later taken away by President Reagan in the eighties.

When Ronald Reagan was governor of California he systematically began closing down mental hospitals, later as president he would cut aid for federally-funded community mental health programs. It is not a coincidence that the homeless populations in the state of California grew in the seventies and eighties. The people were put out on the street when mental hospitals started to close all over the state.

That was the thinking of the Republicans at the time, they didn't care about all the crime that was a very foreseeable result just the money that would be saved in turning them out on the streets. During Reagan term as Governor of California he approved a budget that defunded many of the state's mental institutions. Those patients were dismissed from those facilities and many of them were homeless.
