    Hold on! TheBlaze has made a huge mistake in this article, or at least were not clear in such a way that many people will be misled. The ATF is still planning on banning M855 ammo. For proof read the ATF’s own proposals here (page 14&15):

    http://www.atf.gov/sites/default/files/assets/Library/Notices/atf_framework_for_determining_whether_certain_projectiles_are_primarily_intended_for_sporting_purposes.pdf

    It was recently noticed that in a recent ATF publication that M855 was omitted from being exempt. The ATF admitted the mistake in their publication. This admissions does not mean that the ATF a is stepping away from going forward with a ban in M855. Again, read the proposal linked above where it specifically calls out M855/SS109 for a ban.

    This is the height of ridiculous. All AR15 ammunition can defeat the soft body armor commonly worn by police officers. If the ban on M855 is allowed to proceed then the door is open for them to “regulate” all AR15 ammunition out of existence.

    Also, requiring a “sporting purpose” for ammunition is a direct violation of 2nd Amendment rights. The 2nd Amendment has little to nothing to do with “sporting” and everything to do with defending liberty from tyranny.

    I’m not worried. John Boehner would never agree to bring a “clean” DHS funding bill to a vote in the House and totally screw the GOP base yet again. I mean, John Boehner was Tea Party before there was a Tea Party.” He told me so! It would just be inconceivable given what a Tea Party guy John Boehner is. A big strong tea party beef cake like John Boehner wouldn’t stab the Tea Party in the back for the 100th time. Noooo… that can’t happen when you have John Boehner, Tea Party before there was a Tea Party, as speaker of the house.

    Tea party, Tea Party, Tea Party. Boehner, Boehner, Boehner. Tea Party, Tea Party, Tea Party.

    I’m sure all the Tea Party representatives who voted for John Boehner for speaker of the house will be vindicated when John Boehner tells McConnell and Reid to go stuff their “clean” DHS bill. I am sure they won’t get stabbed in the back again by John-Tea Party-Boehner and find themselves in the position of voting on a “clean” DHS bill with no chance of stopping executive amnesty.

    After all, John Boehner was Tea Party before there as a Tea Party.

    Bahhhh!

    ax2grind, I know what you are saying about wiping your hard drive. Unfortunately it has come to light recently that some very sophisticated malware has been created (probably by nation states given the sheer complexity and effort required) that can alter hard drive firmware. The altered firmware could read/write your sensitive data to a portion of your hard drive that it would hide from the operating system and even low level disk wipe utilities. The firmware can also re-infect your operating system after the hard drive has been wiped to again make your computer vulnerable to remote intrusion.

    So while wiping your hard drive is pretty effective, it isn’t always a guarantee.

    Boehner needs to be removed. We need to find a good candidate right now to run against him in his next primary and every time Boehner screws us we need to donate another million dollars to his opponent. Screw us on immigration, we money bomb your opponent. Won’t balance the budget, we money bomb your opponent. Fail to reform the IRS, we money bomb your opponent. Tit for tat. Equivalent retaliation.

    I’ll pay to see this corrupt progressive republican made an example of just like Eric Cantor.

    Glenn, thank you for explaining. I have made the choice to stick by you many times. I am happy to know, yet again, that I chose wisely. There is more I could say but something tells me that I shouldn’t. Be well, hang in there, this is important.

    I had no idea Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was a master in Tai Kwan Leap and would be so selfless to honor Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning by teaching him so much Tai Kwan Leap so quickly…. *boot to the head*

    Many people in this nation judge the legitimacy of your argument based on the amount of moral authority that they perceive you possess. Those in power and in politics know this and use it to their advantage. These same people will seize on anything they can, no matter how small and insignificant, and use it against you to reduce or eliminate any moral authority that you may have.

    I think that Martin Luther King understood this. This is evidenced by how he conducted his protests. In order to be allowed to march with him people had to agree to a set of standards of behavior that included reading their scriptures, praying, loving their enemies, turning the other cheek, and never under any circumstances stepping out of the marching line even when attacked. He knew that even the slightest missteps would be used as an excuse to invalidate everything they were trying to accomplish.

    While I agree that you have every right to carry your weapon in public, I would admonish you to first know EXACTLY your local laws as it relates to open carry and interaction with the police. Be respectful and humble. And when your rights are violated refuse to comply and then take any abuse that is thrown at you. If you do this the right way the moral authority of our cause will grow beyond anything you can imagine.

    Then the day may again come where you can walk the streets with your weapon on your hip or in the crook of your arm and not be harassed, assaulted, or violated.

    Is this what passes for courage in our government these days? We have the executive branch of government breaking the law and basically telling congress to go f themselves and what we get from the senate is little wimpy Senator Lindsey Graham to afraid to do anything about it except to mutter about possibly doing something next time. Yeah right, Lindsey, you so tough! You fraud! You coward! I know exactly what you are: pathetic.

    So what is the plan to actually achieve the 30% reduction? I am sick of politicians calling a goal a plan. Just requiring power plants to cut emissions isn’t a plan either. How are these power plants ACTUALLY going to do it and how is it going to be paid for?

    I want Officer Dale to come to my home town and be my police chief. He gave me a little hope that there are still some honorable officers of the peace who know, understand, and uphold their oaths. Also, good on this group and TheBlaze for having the integrity to show the good with the bad.

    My mind could not help but associate the screams of this woman with a vision of our future. In this future the “good citizens”, those who supported the limitless growth in the size and power of the federal government without so much as a whimper, now wail and scream with confusion in their voices, “But, I didn’t do anything wrong! I have nothing to hide! I am one of you! Noooo! I didn’t do anything wrong!” Their desperate and hysterical screams fall on the uncaring ears of a militarized police force for which this is just another day among many days prior. These law keepers are merely doing their duty to protect the state from the those deemed dangerous by behavioral algorithms designed by secret government agencies. These agencies are tasked with running deep analytics against historical communications in order to produce degree of interest models on all citizens. By connecting dots using probabilities, circumstantial evidence, innuendo, and paranoia citizens are convicted of crimes and future crimes based on a house of cards. Those who once had nothing to hide are put against walls and summarily executed by an all powerful and all paranoid state.

    It is true that this future has not come to pass. But this future is becoming more and more likely. For this reason I found the cries of the woman in this story disturbing. When a society trades liberty for safety to often such cries are inevitable, as is the fate of the good intentioned followers.

    The linked story said, “Boguslawski works in Indiana at a training facility for Navy Seals…”

    That is kind of an important detail don’t you think? Why was that left off of this story at theBlaze?

    Juan, here is the difference. Phil Robertson expressed his opinion about homosexuality without advocating for any action to be taken against gays. Martin Bashir, on the other hand, advocated that Sarah Palin be whipped, tortured, her mouth defecated in, and her eyes urinated on. You see the difference Juan? The moment Martin Bashir advocated that something be done to punish someone he disagrees with is the moment his comments turned into hatred. Phil Robertson did not, in any way, advocate for anything to be done against homosexuals. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE… JAUN? DO YOU? Now, had Phil Robertson suggested we grab torches and pitch forks and burn down the homes of gay people, well, that would be hate speech. But he didn’t. Did he? No, he didn’t. NO, HE DIDN’T.

    Jaun, it is you that can’t have it both ways. One is hate speech, the other is harmless opinion.

    Secondly, Martin Bashir advocated for hateful action on his show, on MSNBC, with a prepared and premeditated script, without anyone stirring him to do so. Phil Robertson expressed his personal religious opinion, without advocating for hateful action of any kind, when asked direct questions during an interview for GQ magazine, which has nothing to do with A&E.

    Wasn’t it the Chiefs that had a very similar chance just a week ago in Denver right before the end of the first half with no time left on the clock and because Denver put someone back to potentially return the kick the Chiefs wussed out and kneeled the ball?! I was so let down when they didn’t even try. It is so much sweeter now that Denver had the guts to try and broke a 40+ year old record.

    This mans conviction by a Texas jury is just more proof that Texas is an progressive cesspool filled with liberty hating statists. What a shameful state. What an embarrassment.

    I saw the arresting officer lie multiple times to his sargent about telling the man he was going to remove his weapon. His lies are unbecoming an officer of the peace and for that alone he should be fired. He should then be tried for excessive force for disarming a man that no reasonable person would feel threatened by. The officer and his sargent should both be tried and convicted for failure to act against the person making the false call to the police department.

    I still don’t understand why he was arrested for disorderly conduct. His arrest alone should be grounds for a major lawsuit. The school not releasing his children should be prosecuted as unlawful detainment or kidnapping.

    Now the Blaze is suddenly naive about how politics are played in Washington DC? This isn’t an example of McConnell being unjustly blamed. This is an example of how you bring a two billon dollar kickback to your state without looking dirty. Of course two other senators wrote an inserted the kickback into the bill. THAT IS HOW IT IS DONE. This is simple plausible deniability and is done as a matter of course in DC.

    There is no great revelation in this news story from the Blaze. Stories like this make me question if I can really trust the Blaze.

    This is all it takes for the lazy entitled welfare state to riot and kill. What will it take for the hard working tax paying producers to do likewise?

    Senator Corker has shown he believes the American people are to stupid to understand why voting against cloture on this bill isn’t a vote against the bill. I have news for you Senator Corker, not only do we fully understand why voting against cloture prevents Senator Reid from amending the bill to refund Obamacare we also fully understand that you, Sir, are a coward and a neo-statist who wants to exert power and dominion over the people through giant government centralized health care.
