Libertarian Commentary on the News, #13-13B: Police State Blues

Self-defense – Stupid government thugs
Massachusetts man facing charges for killing bear in his own backyard

(CBS) – A 76-year-old Auburn man is facing charges after killing a bear in his backyard. Richard Ahlstrand told WBZ-TV he was stocking his bird feeder Friday night when a bear about seven feet tall and 300-to-400 pounds started chasing him. That’s when he turned his shotgun on the bear….Ahlstrand is now charged with illegally killing a bear, illegally baiting a bear, illegal possession of a firearm and failing to secure a weapon. … “They got me set up now like I’m some kind of murderer.  And then the environmental guy told me ‘You should have called me instead of shooting it.’  What was I going to do, say ‘Mister Bear would excuse me please while I go make a phone call?’” Police don’t believe the bear was a threat to people.

Nathan: These scumbags should be fed to the bears.  To even be charged with ANYthing in this case shows how seriously fouled-up Massachusetts and local laws must be.  No indication that Joe Biden has come to his defense, either.  A police state where bears have more rights than humans.

Our right to self defense – Local tyranny
New York man loses pistol license after son makes school water gun “threat”

(Hauppage Patch) …That following Monday [after the school complained about his son and two others], Mayer received a call from the pistol licensing office, stating that police would be at his house to remove his guns and suspend his license. “I attempted to explain that this must be a mistake, no wrong doing occurred on my part. My son has no access to any of my guns. The officer that came to my residence saw that all my guns were secured. Pistol Licensing was not interested in my side of the story. They were only interested in what happened with my 10-year-old son in school,” he said. When Mayer asked police when his license would be restored, he said that police told him he would have to wait until his son is 18 years old and moves out of the home. According to police, if Mayer wants his handguns back sooner, he could pursue an administrative hearing or other legal recourse. However, those are pricey endeavors.

Nathan: Others have reported this, but once more it is worth noting that registration led DIRECTLY to confiscation, given the slightest excuse.  This is not liberty, this is not freedom, this is again, a police state.  And this is important because it was the gust front of what JPFO and others are now reporting, as of Tuesday 9th April 2013:

(JPFO) …It seems those that tried desperately to warn of such an insidious plot had hit the bullseye with their warnings after all. News came from multiple NY State based firearms enthusiast websites late Friday that confiscations of Pistol Owner ID Cards, as well as firearms and accessories has commenced in NY under the provisions of the horribly flawed, draconian and blatantly unconstitutional NY SAFE Act.

Those folks having their weapons and FID cards confiscated have been discovered to have been prescribed multiple different types of psychotropic drugs, such as those for Depression or Anxiety. These are known as SSRI ( Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) class drugs and have the potential to cause serious and adverse side effects, something I wrote about extensively last week in an article that went viral in days and caused multiple Anti Gun and Progressive News Groups to initiate a concentrated denial of service hacker attack against Ammoland Shooting Sports News (see Daily KOS “Keeping Track Of The RKBA Crowd “), in an effort to keep the information from the public.

From: NYS Police Departments Revoking Pistol Permits because of Anti-Anxiety Meds

Nathan: The conflict is continuing to build.  Sometime, soon, somewhere, someone is going to defend their right to keep and bear arms by using those arms, with other friends and family and comrades to help and support them. And then…

State tyranny – Government-run, tax-funded schools
Wyoming State Superintendent Speaks in Albany County

(Laramie Boomerang)  At Monday’s Albany County Tea Party Roundup meeting, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill told a story about her son. Hill, who used to be a principal, said one of her son’s professors told him he was surprised his mom hadn’t “folded” after the passing of Senate File 104 — a bill signed by Gov. Matt Mead in January that transferred many of her duties as head of the Wyoming Department of Education to a director appointed by the governor. “Do you know what my son said?” Hill asked. “He said, ‘You don’t know my mom. … She’s used to dealing with bullies, but they’re usually just seventh-graders.’”

Nathan: This story reminds us that things are still in a row in Wyoming, where the supposedly conservative Legislature and Governor conspired to destroy the power of an elected official and replace her with an appointed educrat.  Cindy Hill is no libertarian, but a better option than the stuff floating on top of the cistern in Cheyenne.  And she obviously isn’t giving up.

Rejoicing in Streets when Thatcher Dies

(Daily Mail via The Last Resistance) “Baroness Thatcher’s death unleashed a wave of vitriol and hatred from the Left…The first of several planned ‘Thatcher death parties’ across the country began last night with more than 200 revellers gathering in Brixton, south London…They danced the conga, drank champagne and chanted: ‘Maggie, Maggie, Maggie – Dead, Dead, Dead.’ Banners were held stating ‘Rejoice Thatcher is dead’ by drunken crowds, many of whom were too young to remember her as prime minister…Sickening messages also began flooding the internet minutes after the official announcement…And at a National Union of Students conference in Sheffield some delegates cheered and applauded when informed of the former prime minister’s death.”

Nathan: Ah, the love and peaceful nature of the Tranzis and about anyone on the Left, not just in the UK but here.  There was a little of this when Reagan died; I can only imagine the glee when George W. Bush dies.  but never fear, the cops will be there to protect the partiers.
