Defending freedom or starting a revolt?

Just incase you did not hear, there was nearly a bloodbath, OR a revolution started in Nevada, here are some of the last moments of the federal occupation of this ranchers land before the federal agents started to pull back.

Whats the difference between THIS and the occupy movement.

Well Its simple, these men were all armed.

Ebay bans magazines with more then 10 rounds.

Wow.. WTF.. My friend Alex just sent me a email he got from Ebay stating that they pulled his auction from their site because it was for a magazine that holds more then 10 rounds..

Lets just keep diving off the cliff in this country folks..

This was the email he got..

[box] Email from eBay:

Unfortunately, we had to remove your listing because of the following:

You listed a magazine for a firearm that holds more than 10 rounds and is therefore not permitted on our site. While this item may be perfectly legal to sell and available at other retail outlets, we’ve made the decision that some firearm parts are not right for our marketplace. We ask that you please not relist it on our site.

I understand that this is frustrating to you and that you may have not been aware of this policy, and meant no ill intentions. At times, there is a learning curve when selling on eBay, and we appreciate your contributions to our community.[/box]



Top 10 myths about mass shootings

This is a pretty good article that covers a lot of the main talking points…



Even before the death toll in last Friday’s school massacre in Newtown, Conn., was determined, politicians, pundits, and professors of varied disciplines were all over the news, pushing their proposals for change. Some talked about the role of guns, others about mental-health services, and still more about the need for better security in schools and other public places. Whatever their agenda and the passion behind it, those advocates made certain explicit or implied assumptions about patterns in mass murder and the profile of the assailants. Unfortunately, those assumptions do not always align with the facts.

Myth: Mass shootings are on the rise.
Reality: Over the past three decades, there has been an average of 20 mass shootings a year in the United States, each with at least four victims killed by gunfire. Occasionally, and mostly by sheer coincidence, several episodes have been clustered closely in time. Over all, however, there has not been an upward trajectory. To the contrary, the real growth has been in the style and pervasiveness of news-media coverage, thanks in large part to technological advances in reporting.

Myth: Mass murderers snap and kill indiscriminately.
Reality: Mass murderers typically plan their assaults for days, weeks, or months. They are deliberate in preparing their missions and determined to follow through, no matter what impediments are placed in their path.

Myth: Enhanced background checks will keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of these madmen.
Reality: Most mass murderers do not have criminal records or a history of psychiatric hospitalization. They would not be disqualified from purchasing their weapons legally. Certainly, people cannot be denied their Second Amendment rights just because they look strange or act in an odd manner. Besides, mass killers could always find an alternative way of securing the needed weaponry, even if they had to steal from family members or friends.

Myth: Restoring the federal ban on assault weapons will prevent these horrible crimes.
Reality: The overwhelming majority of mass murderers use firearms that would not be restricted by an assault-weapons ban. In fact, semiautomatic handguns are far more prevalent in mass shootings. Of course, limiting the size of ammunition clips would at least force a gunman to pause to reload or switch weapons.
