Sorry, but family matters intrude, demanding my attention. I'm going to be out of pocket the rest of today (although I'll enable comments and answer emails as I can later this afternoon/evening). If it's not one thing, it's another, it seems. Keep me in your prayers.
Forwarded by a loyal reader who comments: "Looks like 2014 continues to unfold in ways the governor didn't expect. His Utopia keeps biting him in the butt."
Were I a Connecticut policeman, it would be a cold day in the halls of government before I’d ever enforce the new gun-control laws. If the IRS can get away with an “oops” for targeting conservative groups, so can citizens targeted by an unjust law. As to this, I’ll leave you with the words of St. Augustine: “An unjust law is no law at all.”
Again, I'd like to remind everybody that the law doesn't protect the citizenry so much as it does the constabulary and the politicians who send them. Act lawless and pretty soon we're going to conclude who the common -- and uncommon -- criminals really are.
The Patriot Perspective posts this link along with this commentary:
Keep in mind as you read this that New Jersey already has laws mandating computer-controlled guns be the only thing on the market in three years, even though everything about the concept of a “smart” gun is faulty.Now there’s a tech firm called Global Digital Solutions, Inc. that’s come out of nowhere to try to buy all the American gun industry up in order to control it and force RFID chipped, RFID controlled gun control on the US. They’re starting with an unsolicited bid on Remington Outdoors/Freedom Group, which comprises numerous individual firearms manufacturers beyond just Remington.
Now I don't know about this whole, "today Remington, tomorrow the world" conclusion, but I am reminded that even paranoids have real enemies. Why does this story smell like Dr. Evil?
Isn’t it ironic though. In Connecticut and New York, the bullies in charge would want us to be left comparatively defenseless in the face of such home invasions. So if the criminals can use them, then why not me?
Dr. Martin Luther King once famously stated that a "right delayed is a right denied." Typically, advocates of "gun control" try to dispute that obvious truism. Cardin, on the other hand, appears bent on proving it.

Gun Owners Ask SCOTUS to Block Implementation of High-Capacity Magazine Ban. No, not CT, but isn't that a good idea? Alan? Wayne? (Crickets.)
Does the Second Amendment protect the right of gun owners to possess magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition? A group of California gun owners says it does, and today they asked Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy to block the implementation of one such ban as they mount a Second Amendment challenge to it in federal court.
However, there is a sacramental function being performed here, as well: When a police officer – a carnal emissary of the divine state, an accredited member of its punitive priesthood -- orders a citizen to prostrate himself, he is, quite literally, demanding worship.
Alan Gottlieb and Wayne LaPierre agree: The lives of CT firearm owners aren't worth a dime of their precious legal defense money.
To call this guy a weasel would be an insult to honest weasels around the world.
Readers will recall that the NRA recently opened a PR war on the subject of the CT tyranny, consisting largely of weasel-worded reasons why they haven't done more: 'The NRA whistles up a tune of pretension in Connecticut and tries to jockey the weeniewagon to the head of the PR line with words."
Readers may also recall Alan Gottlieb's abortive sellout at the time of Sandy Hook. (See also Claire Wolfe's take on Gottlieb the traitor.)
As I said yesterday, I was on Armed American Radio on Sunday and was followed by Alan Gottlieb. Mark Walters asked him about my notion that the legal beagles of the firearm rights movement should seek an injunction on enforcement until the Supremes have a chance to rule on the Intolerable Act's constitutionality. Go here 45 minutes in and listen to Gottlieb's own weasel-worded excuses about why the SAF won't seek an injunction on enforcement.
Alan Gottlieb and Wayne LaPierre agree on one thing: The lives of CT firearm owners aren't worth a dime of their precious legal defense money.
"Hey, watch who yer callin' a 'weasel', bubba."
Mr Kaleda was detained and is currently being held in the Northampton County Correctional Facility in Pennsylvania. And extradition hearing was held on Friday March 7th 2014, when extradition was waived. Mr Kaleda now awaits NJ Authorities to have him transferred to NJ before he can go before a NJ Judge to post bail. A process which the State apparently has up to ninety days to complete.

snol·ly·gos·ter (snŏl′ē-gŏs′tər) n. SlangOne, especially a politician, who is guided by personal advantage rather than by consistent, respectable principles. [Perhaps alteration of snallygaster, a mythical beast said to prey on poultry and children, perhaps from Pennsylvania Dutch schnelle geeschter : Middle High German snēl, quick (from Old High German) + Middle High German geist, spirit (from Old High German).]
So what made last month "the appropriate time"? According to the NorthJersey.com article, with Sweeney's reelection last November, he has probably faced his last need to serve the interests of his constituents in his relatively pro-gun district. Now, evidently, he is expected to pursue his gubernatorial ambitions in a state that, unlike his district, is dominated by an electorate largely receptive to draconian "gun control" measures. Seen in that light, even calling his earlier opposition to a magazine ban "a lie" might be letting him off to easily. Perhaps it should be called a cynical, self-serving, snollygoster's lie.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network's liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network's corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.
