Oklahoma Overwhelmingly Approves Firearms Manufacturer Protection Bill

DC GUNS & GEAR | Yesterday, the Oklahoma House of Representatives voted 92-0 to approve House Bill 1004, authored by state Representative T.W. Shannon (R-62) and state Senators Brian Bingman (R-3) and Anthony Sykes (R-24). HB 1004 contains critical protections against attempts to bankrupt the American firearms industry through erroneous lawsuits that would threaten the availability of firearms to consumers. This legislation would provide that lawsuits may not be brought against manufacturers, distributors or sellers of firearms if such suits are based on criminal or unlawful use of the product by a third party. However, these protections would not apply to actions arising from the unlawful sale or transfer of firearms, or to instances in which the transfer or knew, or should have known, that the recipient would engage in the unlawful sale or transfer of the firearm, or would use, or purposely allow the use of, the firearm in an unlawful, negligent, or improper fashion.

Additionally, the state House voted 75 to 1 to add an emergency clause to HB 1004, enabling the legislation to take immediate effect if passed by the state Senate next week and signed into law by the Governor.

The language in HB 1004 was originally passed in 2009 as a section of House Bill 1603, which dealt broadly with tort reform and was law in Oklahoma until this June when the Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down HB 1603 for violating the state constitutional requirement that a bill can have only one subject, not multiple. Governor Mary Fallin (R) called the state legislature into special session in order to restore the reforms in the original HB 1603 by introducing each subject as its own bill.

Napolitano Lies About Securing Our Borders Right Up to Her Last Day on the Job

USA TODAY | WASHINGTON — Ask for her biggest disappointment after nearly five years heading the Department of Homeland Security, and Janet Napolitano mentions the failure of Congress so far to pass a comprehensive immigration bill.

For some opponents, she says, the argument that the U.S. border with Mexico needs to be more secure before moving ahead has become an excuse rather than a reason.

“We’ve driven the numbers down there to 40-year lows,” Napolitano said in an interview with USA TODAY’s Capital Download, a weekly video newsmaker series, saying critics “keep moving the goal posts” on what would constitute a border that was sufficiently secure. She has been deeply involved in the immigration debate as head of a department that includes both border patrol and immigration enforcement.

Mexican Smuggler Who Assaulted U.S. Border Patrol Agent Sentenced to 98 Months

LAHT | LAREDO, TX – Jose Alberto Izquierdo-Gonzalez, 28, an undocumented Mexican alien who had been living in Laredo, has been ordered to federal prison for assaulting Border Patrol agents and transporting aliens, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson.

Izquierdo-Gonzalez entered a plea of guilty March 28, 2013.

On Wednesday, Senior U.S. District Judge George P. Kazen sentenced him to a term of 98 months in federal prison. In handing down the sentence, Judge Kazen took note of the defendant’s prior convictions for alien transporting in 2009, entering illegally in the same year, as well as damages to a Border Patrol (BP) unit he rammed while trying to elude apprehension.

D.C. Police Ordeed Tor Arrest Tourists Possessing EMPTY Shell Casings

BREITBART | Washington, D.C. police are under orders to arrest tourists and others from outside the district who are caught with empty shell casings on their persons.

Even though such shell casings are spent and therefore inert, they are considered ammunition in the District of Columbia.

According to the Washington Examiner, these and other D.C. gun laws and policies are detailed in Emily Miller’s book, Emily Gets Her Gun… But Obama Wants to Take Yours.

“Unless you are a resident [of D.C.] and have a gun registration certificate,” possession of empty shell casings is a crime that results in a $1,000 fine, a year in jail, and a criminal record.

Under this law, even D.C. residents with a gun registration certificate are to keep empty shell casings “stored so [they are] not accessible from the passenger compartment” in their vehicles.

California Supreme Court Signals Denial of Law License for ILLEGAL

LA TIMES | SAN FRANCISCO — The California Supreme Court indicated Wednesday that federal law appeared to prevent immigrants without green cards from obtaining licenses to practice law.

During a hearing in a packed courtroom, several justices suggested they were bound to follow a law passed by Congress that denies professional licenses to immigrants who are in the country illegally.

The state high court is considering a bid by Sergio C. Garcia, 36, a Mexican immigrant who has spent most of his life in California, passed the state bar examination and has been waiting 18 years to obtain a green card.

Although the State Bar of California and Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris favored admitting Garcia, the court appeared to believe that Congress had tied its hands. Not one justice suggested that Garcia was likely to win his case.

E-Verify Changes on the Horizon

BLOOMBERG BNA | Ahead of a likely legislative requirement that the E-Verify electronic employment eligibility verification system be made mandatory for all U.S. employers, the National Immigration Law Center recently released a report warning that the way the system works now could mean that hundreds of thousands of work-authorized individuals might face problems from mismatches between their information and what’s contained in government records, also known as tentative nonconfirmations (TNCs).

Right now 404,295 employers are enrolled in E-Verify, only about 7 percent of all U.S. employers. But both the comprehensive Senate-passed immigration bill (S. 744) and legislation (H.R. 1772) passed by the House Judiciary Committee would require all employers to use the system.

NILC’s report said that while the most recently calculated error rate for TNCs is 0.3 percent, erroneous TNCs are much more common for lawful permanent residents and other work-authorized foreign nationals than for citizens. Also, a 0.3 percent error rate among all employees in the U.S., as would be the case under either bill, might mean that somewhere between 150,000 and 500,000 people would have to correct a problem with either the Social Security Administration or the Department of Homeland Security.

Another OFA Flop: Ohio Immigration Rally Fails to Generate Support — Only 5 OFA Interns Show Up

BREITBART | One day after immigration advocates claimed a “resounding win” in the August town-halls (because they didn’t lose), the Ohio arm of Organizing for Action (OFA) attempted to generate excitement for “comprehensive immigration reform” at an August 30 Statehouse rally.

According to Jesse Hathaway reporting for Media Trackers, they failed miserably.

Organized by OFA’s Kate Kight, the August 30 event was attended by 5 OFA interns participating in the organization’s “Summer Fellows” program. A press release indicated OFA Ohio is partnering with DREAMActivist Ohio, an illegal-immigrant advocacy group which has held a series of similar rallies making similar demands.

According to Hathaway, the event was advertised in local media and like-minded organizations, yet failed to generate any interest.

ICE Agent Who Outed Obama’s Welfare-Sucking ILLEGAL Alien Aunt Thought the American People Had a Right to Know

HUFFINGTON POST | WASHINGTON — An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official admitted he tipped off a reporter that Barack Obama’s aunt was undocumented just four days before the 2008 election because it was “interesting,” “newsworthy” and because “the American public [had] a right to know,” according to an internal report obtained by The Huffington Post.

A heavily redacted report from ICE’s Office of Professional Responsibility, disclosed in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, reveals that an agency employee admitted to calling an Associated Press reporter to inform him that President Barack Obama’s aunt might be an undocumented immigrant facing a removal order. ICE’s investigation determined that the unnamed employee disclosed the woman’s identity and immigration status to the media, displayed a “lack of candor” to investigators and misused government property.

The 20-page internal report was completed in August 2010 but the agency declined to provide it until this year. The report doesn’t indicate what, if any, disciplinary action was taken against the ICE official.

Whatever Happened to “Moving Beyond Mindset of Perpetual War,” Barack?

One of Barack Obama’s most annoying mannerisms is his propensity to engage in “preachy hypocrisy,” in which The One looks down his snooty nose at we the unwashed and proceeds to lecture us with his superior intellectual and moral perspective concerning everything from the need to abandon fossil fuels to his warped conviction that access to government-funded abortion and contraception are inalienable rights found in the US Constitution, but only by those sufficiently blessed with the intellectual tools needed to see light and truth.

As an undeserving and farcical recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, Obama is particularly passionate about the subject of war and he openly shares adamant opposition to it, especially as concerns American politicians.

As reported at the reference, Obama has long been a cheerleader for surrendering America’s sovereignty and legitimate national interests in order to achieve unilateral peace:

Said he:

“We must move beyond the mindset of perpetual war: Closing the prison in Guantanamo, tightly controlling use of new technology like drones, security with the balance of the protection of privacy — I’m confident that balance can be struck.”
