2nd Amendment Under Fire


NY Street Scanners Looking For Guns

The 4th Amendment apparently has little meaning for New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

Kelly is working with the Pentagon to deploy Terahertz Imagining Detection (TID) scanners throughout the city. TID scanners measure radiation energy emitted from a person’s body and can detect when the radiation is being blocked. Hence, it would spot a concealed weapon.

This allows the New York Police Department to conduct illegal searches of anyone walking down the street.

Fast And Furious Investigation Continues

The first convictions in the Department of Justice’s fatally flawed Fast and Furious gunwalking scheme were made in a Federal court on Monday.

Bloomberg Using Dead Cop To Push Gun Control Agenda

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg invited Congress to attend the funeral of a slain cop with him on Monday, saying that it might urge lawmakers to do something about the flow of illegal guns.

Republican Senators Thwart Anti-gun Judicial Nominee

Gun owners received something of a reprieve last week when the efforts of Senator Harry Reid to ram through confirmation of an anti-gun judicial nominee were thwarted in a cloture vote.

Reid was pushing Caitlin Halligan, a former New York solicitor general who was a leading advocate for bankrupting the firearms industry through the use of frivolous lawsuits. Halligan was up for a seat on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, a court that is commonly referred to as the second most important court in the country.

The Fast And The Spurious IV: The Empire Strikes Out

President Barack Obama and the bulk of the corporate media continue to act as if “Operation Fast and Furious” is a bad movie sequel featuring Vin Diesel and the Rock flexing their muscles and struggling with dialogue as opposed to a poorly conceived and implemented Department of Justice “gunwalking” program.
