Some local news on guns here in GA

Posted By Greg Shaffer

This from the Sheriff of the county I live in......A staunch supporter of gun rights and a good man.

Dana Safety Supply, a major distributor of weapons and accessories to police departments and civilians across the United States, has declared that they will no longer sell semi-automatic rifles to civilians. Instead, they will only sell to law enforcement. This prompted Oconee County, Georgia Sheriff Scott Barry to write them an email in which he told them he would no longer be seeking them out to purchase products for his department based on their decision.


Sheriff Barry wrote the following email to DSS:

Sirs,
It is my understanding that you have stopped selling self loading rifles to members of the general public in favor of selling them to law enforcement officers only.

I deeply regret that decision. As such, this agency will no longer seek bids from or purchase from DSS.

Thank you for your time and attention to this email.

Sheriff Scott Berry
Oconee County Georgia Sheriffs Office

A call to the headquarters of DSS resulted in a political answer of "we appreciate your call, but are in the midst of consulting to form a proper response." They would neither confirm nor deny the report when called on Friday. Apparently their website and postings outside their businesses are more forthcoming than their headquarters.

My hat is off to Sheriff Barry! In fact, Barry popped up on Fox Business for an interview.

In the interview, when asked why he would not longer be purchasing from DSS, Sheriff Barry said that since law abiding citizens couldn't purchase a legal weapon there with money they have, then he wasn't going to "spend their tax money" at such a business and he wasn't going to "spend his personal money there" either. Come on! This guy is my kind of Sheriff!

When asked if it would "make his job easier" if "assault" rifles weren't being sold and "out there," Sheriff Barry responded by correcting the host that they were semi-automatic rifles, not assault rifles. He then went on to point out that there were millions of these weapons in America, but that "statistically an insignificant number of them are used to commit any kind of crime."

Sheriff Barry was right on weapons and people. "Rifles of any type just don't bother me," he said. "Handguns of any type just don't bother me. The truth is that in the hands of criminals they are tools of evil, but in the vast majority of hands, they are owned by law abiding citizens."

When the host asked why take the term "assault rifle" off the table, the Sheriff responded by stating that the definition of the term is as "wide and as broad" as the building he was sitting in. The Sheriff described that an assault weapon was a military weapon that was designed for military purpose. "Semi-automatic rifles just aren't assault rifles," he said. "You can call them that, but that's just not what they are."

The host then asked Barry what his reaction to the Brady campaigns' rating of an 8 out of 100 on Georgia's regulations on firearms was. According to the host, who was citing the Brady campaign, the reasons for the low rating was because there was "no limits on gun purchases, no required background checks for gun show purchases, and no ban on 'assault' weapons," Sheriff Barry said that he was "hoping to shoot for a lower number than that." He did address the issue of the supposed "required background checks at gun shows" by stating that "law abiding citizens can sell guns in the parking lot or on the floor of a gun show." He doesn't know where they get the idea that it's required to do a background check. He was emphatic in stating that he can sell his gun to anyone else no matter where he is at. The Sheriff rightly pointed out that one goes through the same process if they buy a gun through a dealer at a gun show that someone goes through at a standard brick and mortar store to purchase a firearm. He called the Brady statement concerning gun shows a "scare tactic."

Barry said that Georgia believes in the Second Amendment and that means that law abiding citizens should be able to carry and buy firearms.

The rest of the interview is good too, Please watch at link.

Little Johnnie rides again......

Posted By Greg Shaffer

OBAMA FANS



A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans.



Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.


The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different…AGAIN.


Little Johnny said, “Because I’m not an Obama fan.”


The teacher asked, “Why aren’t you a fan of Obama?” Johnny said, “Because I’m a Republican.”


The teacher asked him why he’s a Republican. Little Johnny answered, “Well, my Mom’s a Republican and my Dad’s a Republican, so I’m a Republican.”


Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, “If your mom were a moron and your dad were an idiot, what would that make YOU?”


With a big smile, Little Johnny replied, “THAT WOULD MAKE ME AN OBAMA FAN.”

Wyoming is firing back.....

Wyoming fires one across the Feds bow with the proposed "gun protection act" making any federal law regarding semi-autos and magazine limits unenforable within its state borders.

Common theme to shootings.......

Posted By Greg Shaffer

It's a little easier to understand when you can see it in a list......

Rx drugs...........not guns.....Seems to me the evidence clearly shows that a very small percentage of people have violently adverse reactions to anti-depressants and/or also to withdrawals from them.
