Suppressed hunting rifle ok in Texas

Texas: Use of Lawfully-Owned Suppressors While Hunting Legalized in the Lone
Star State
Thank You to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission and NRA
Today, after hearing your support for this NRA-backed common sense hunting reform, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission voted unanimously to legalize suppressor use while hunting.
The benefits associated with suppressor use include increased accuracy due to reduced recoil and muzzle blast, protection from hearing damage and reduced noise pollution.
Prior to the adoption of this rule, lawfully-possessed suppressors were permitted for all other shooting activities besides hunting game animals, including the taking of nuisance species. The
adoption of this common sense proposal by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department helps in other states where the NRA is involved with similar pro-hunting measures. Legislatures in Oklahoma and Georgia are currently considering similar measures and Arizona has recently passed one which would enhance hunting opportunities because of the many benefits that
suppressors provide.
The NRA strongly supported this regulation change to allow for the use of lawfully-owned suppressors for hunting in Texas.
There is an incredible amount of misinformation on what suppressors do and how they may be acquired. Suppressors are not "silencers," as depicted in typical Hollywood action films. While suppressors do not eliminate the sound of a firearm, they do reduce the muzzle report in a manner similar to the way that a muffler reduces exhaust noise from a vehicle.
Noise complaints are being used more frequently as an excuse to close shooting ranges, informal shooting areas, and hunting lands throughout the country. Increased use of suppressors
will help to eliminate many of these complaints and protect hunting and shooting areas well into the future.

Bill to impeach Obama gets scant coverage

March 13 2012
Calling it the most important story he’s covered in 17 years, talk show host Alex Jones is furious over the mainstream media’s skimpy coverage of a bill to impeach President Obama.“You’d think that would be news, wouldn’t you?” Jones said during a video report. “No, there’s a blackout on it.”Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., (R-N.C.), introduced a resolution that declares it is an “impeachable high crime and misdemeanor” for the president to leverage offensive wars without permission from Congress, as provided under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.Continue reading on Bill calls for impeachment of Obama - National Alex Jones

Marines in Afghanistan ordered disarmed near Panetta

Secretary of Defense Forces Marines to Disarm

In what many in the military are calling an unprecedented attack on our military, 200 Marines at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan were forced to disarm and leave their weapons outside of the camp. The orders were given to 200 Marines who were gathered to hear U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta speak.This is a very troubling story! Normally the Marines are always supposed to have their weapons with them in a war zone. And in the past they have always been allowed to keep them no matter who was speaking. And why wouldn’t they – they are supposed to be the ones protecting these political figures in the war zone.

Will Obama and Biden approve of Venezuela's sensible gun laws?

Dog Bites Man: Leftist Dictator Outlaws Guns
Posted on March 7, 2012 by Dan Zimmerman

Venezuela’s descent into chaos continues apace. Unfortunately, the ravages of cancer have apparently done little so far to slow down the country’s porcine president for life, Hugo Chavez. He still has plenty of appetite for expanding his government’s control over the lives of average Venezuelans. Sean Penn and Danny Glover may think he’s dreamy, but Chavez’s people are increasingly saying, meh. The latest problem: the South American paradise is currently number four on the worldwide murder hit parade with a rate of 67 per 100,000. If you’re benchmarking at home, the U.S. – we of the pervasive cowboy gun culture – comes in at 4.8 per 100K according to Wikipedia’s latest compilation. So if you’re a tinpot dictator, what to do? Simple. Disarm innocent citizens . . .Simon Black at breaks it down:In recent remarks to the Latin American Herald Tribune, Venezuelan Interior and Justice Minister Tareck El Aissami announced that the government will begin suspending firearm importation, effective this month. Furthermore, local gunsmiths will no longer be able to market or sell firearms and ammunition.

Colorado court OKs CCW on campus

DENVER (Reuters) - The University of Colorado overstepped its authority when the school's board of regents imposed a ban on the carrying of concealed weapons at its four campuses, the state's Supreme Court ruled on Monday. In overturning the policy, the court said that a concealed -carry law passed by the state legislature trumped the school's ban because it did not carve out an exception for the state's flagship university.
"We hold that the (concealed carry law's) comprehensive statewide purpose, broad language, and narrow exclusions show that the General Assembly intended to divest the Board of Regents of its authority to regulate concealed handgun possession on campus," the ruling said.
"This is a victory for gun rights as well as civil rights," said James Manley, an attorney with the Mountain States Legal Foundation that sued on behalf of three students who challenged the ban.

BTW Perhaps you knew that after the campus murders in Virginia Texas Governor Rick Perry was on TV holding a handgun overhead and braying loudly that anyone with a Texas CHL should be allowed to carry concealed anywhere. Since then the CCW on campus bill was introduced and allowed to die in two sessions of the legislature. Governor Perry and the other wussies, cowards, and geldings in Texas legislature found numerous cogent reasons to avoid voting on it.

Says here smart meter causes health problems; also insurance won't cover homes with smart meter.

I don't know if these allegations are true. Ask your insurance co.
allegedly caused
sixteen smart-meter-related symptoms, including: sleeplessness, ringing in the ears, nosebleeds, migraines, muscle tremors, heart palpitations, nausea, and blurred vision. I now realize I need my neighbors to also opt out,because the smart meters emit microwave radiation that extends out in a one mile radius, with so much radiation it's like living between 200 and 600 feet away
from a cell phone tower. end excerpt

Smart meters invalidate your homeowners insurance If your home catches fire and is shown to have non-UL-approved fixtures (such as smart meters), your homeowners insurance will refuse the tab for any damages, because smart meters are not certified by Underwriters Laboratories. The risk of fires is very real, since current wiring standards are insufficient for supporting the
high frequency spikes smart meters emit. A number of electrical fires have been documented as having been caused by `smart' meters. Smart meters have yet to be tested or approved under federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules. end excerpt
