A 51-year-old farmer in the U.K. has been jailed for 30 months after his wife notified police that he was in possession of two unlicensed guns following an argument between the couple.
However, as reported by Mail Online, one of the farmer’s firearms was a bizarre homemade gun constructed from the barrel of an air rifle and bits of wood, belts and plastic tags. The gun, described as a Heath Robinson-like contraption, is capable of firing “mushrooming” .22-caliber ammunition. Continue reading

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Saturday deported an elderly U.S. tourist, apparently ending the saga of Merrill Newman’s return to the North six decades after he advised South Korean guerrillas still loathed by Pyongyang.
North Korea made the decision because the 85-year-old Newman, who was detained since late October, apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition, according to the North’s official Korean Central News Agency. Continue reading

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Six people being tested for possible radiation exposure in a hospital in central Mexico are suspects in the theft of highly radioactive cobalt-60, a government official said Friday.
The official said the six were arrested Thursday and taken to the general hospital in Pachuca for observation and testing for radiation exposure. Once they are cleared, they will be turned over to federal authorities in connection with the case of a cargo truck stolen Monday at gunpoint that was carrying the extremely dangerous material.

DECATUR — A judge said Thursday that he needs more information and time to decide the case of a group of young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children and want the Georgia university system to grant them in-state tuition.
The roughly three dozen young immigrants have been granted temporary permission to stay in the U.S. under an Obama administration policy introduced last year. They filed a lawsuit in August asking a judge to instruct the university system’s Board of Regents to allow them to qualify for in-state tuition. Continue reading

The man who holds the secrets of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s finances was reported last night to be in hiding in China after fleeing for his life from Kim’s rule.
The aide was responsible for managing the funds of Kim’s recently-ousted uncle Jang Song Thaek, and in turn is believed to have intimate knowledge of the 32-year-old leader’s finances. Continue reading

I am walking through the airport at Phoenix and the public address system tells me that today’s threat level, as declared by the Department of Homeland Security, is orange. I wasn’t sure what that meant except that we were all supposed to be frightened enough to passively agree that the TSA has the right to commit sexual assault against the public. What I did not realize at that time, is that America had been the victim of a coup as a result of events on 9/11 which culminated in a full blown takeover of the government, by the banksters, with the commencement of the bailouts in 2008.

I read your article and the Esquire piece on Batemen and got furious. I wrote him and the banter is below.
I am waiting to reply to his arrogant response. I am thinking that waging war on law abiding US citizens is not treason? Did we not fight the Revolutionary war on the basic principles we are being subjected to today? Does he really think this Congress would declare a war given the track record of their reluctance to do so ever since Korea? Continue reading

As South Africa’s 95-year-old Nelson Mandela lies in the hospital, the worldwide media portrays him as a larger-than-life heroic figure and the liberator of his people. But is that truth or fiction? And how will honest historians judge him?
The official story goes something like this: Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born in 1918 into the Thembu tribe’s royal family. He studied law at two prestigious universities and became involved in “anti-colonial politics,” joining the African National Congress (ANC). He was committed to non-violent protest in gaining sovereignty for blacks. In 1962 he was arrested and convicted of sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow the government and was sentenced to life in prison. Continue reading

A firestorm has been started on Esquire’s The Politics Blog with a Tuesday opinion piece by Lt. Col. Robert Bateman titled “It’s time to talk about guns and the Supreme Court.” He not only takes SCOTUS and Justice Antonin Scalia to task for their Heller decision interpretation of the Second Amendment, but goes on to propose citizen disarmament edicts that dispense with false assurances given by some in the gun ban camp that nobody wants to take our guns away.
Bateman does, big time, and makes no bones about it. In a way, he’s done us a service by giving a glimpse of the end game less candid incrementalists are inching toward. Continue reading

Manassas, VA --(Ammoland.com)- Rights advocates around the country need to be on the lookout for an insidious new tactic being launched by Mike Bloomberg and his mercenary minions.
Their latest line of attack is mental health. This actually isn’t so much a new approach as a refocusing and turbo charging of an older plan. Continue reading
Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced on Wednesday that West Virginia would join 25 other states and one territory in filing an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that law-abiding folks who purchase guns from gun dealers only to turn around and sell them to other law-abiding individuals should not be subject to federal prosecution.
“Our Office is proud to lead a bipartisan group of 27 states and territories in this brief to oppose the U.S. Department of Justice’s attempt to unilaterally create a federal restriction on firearm sales between law-abiding citizens,” Morrisey said in a press release. Continue reading
Now I use one of these and the statement that these could cause people to get hooked on nicotine is false. You can get 0% nicotine liquid to put in them. Although I’m not 100% convinced that vapor is that good for you eather I do feel better when using that rather than smoking cigarettes.
New Yorkers who say electronic cigarettes helped them quit smoking asked city lawmakers at a hearing this week not to ban the nicotine inhalers from restaurants, workplaces and other indoor spaces, saying there isn’t enough evidence they pose a health risk to justify their exclusion.
