We have reached Day 63 and President Barack Obama has failed us miserably in that he has perpetuated his lies of promise to provide 23 executive orders on gun rights limitation. Nothing is posted on the White House web site in this regard. It is impossible for me and the rest of the American people to scrutinize and offer honest assessments of the President’s plans of Second Amendment destruction if we are not allowed access to the details of those plans. Do they even exist?
I have written about and questioned on this blog before about why the Department of Homeland Security needs to be purchasing as many as 1.8 billion rounds of ammunition as well as 2,700-plus light armored, surplus army tanks. (Here and here)
The video below has captured New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance answering a member of his audience about Homeland Security purchasing all this ammo and tanks. He says he’s concerned and wants Congress to investigate and DHS to come up with an explanation. I say he’s lying and is saying what he believes is necessary to cover his ass from the onslaught of angry people……but I might be wrong.
According to Guns and Ammo, they have taken the time to list the United States in order of ranking from most friendliest gun state to the worst. Follow the link to find your state and ranking. Here is a list of the criteria they used to compile points.
* CCW/Open Carry: Only states that don’t require a permit for concealed or open carry scored a perfect 10 in this category. Everybody else was judged accordingly. * MSRs: States with no restrictions on the kind, type or number of modern sporting rifles (ARs, AKs, etc.) that can be owned or purchased scored a 10 in this category. * Class 3/NFA: The majority of states allow their citizens to own Class 3/NFA-type firearms (machine guns, suppressors, short-barreled rifles, etc.), provided they follow the federal licensing standard, but not every state is yea or nay. * Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground: States’ scores were determined based on how strong your the law is regarding self-defense in and out of the home, and whether in the right you’re immune from civil prosecution. * Miscellaneous: How pro-gun the state culture is has a lot to do with scoring in this category. Scores are based on the percentage of gun owners in the state, if there are any restrictions on gun or ammunition purchases or magazine capacity, pending pro- or anti-gun legislation, CCW reciprocity, and any restrictions on guns that not covered in the other categories.
