The Left’s Bill of Wrongs

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The Atlantic wrote recently of, “an obscure New York City ordinance governing how firearms owners could—note the past tense—travel with their weapons.”

Under this law, “New Yorkers with a “premises” license had to keep their guns in their homes at all times, except when being taken to a licensed target-shooting facility for practice and training. But those facilities had to be in New York City itself. “Premises” licensees could not put their guns in their trunk and drive out of town for any reason—not to go to a gun range, not to compete in a shooting match, not to take the guns to a second home.”

A premises license? Well heck. If this isn’t unconstitutional, I frankly don’t know what is. Just where in the Second Amendment does it say anything about being forced to keep your guns at home at all times? Answer: NOWHERE!!

But as bad as this is, it is not my point.

The plantiffs, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, as well as the NRA, sued all the way to the United States Supreme Court, and much to most peoples’ surprise, they agreed to review the case. read more

We’re already quite familiar with the testing kits in which a woman pees on a “stick” to see if they’re pregnant. Well, Australian scientists have now developed a similar device, except that users spit on it to find out if they’re at risk of heart disease. read more

WND Exclusive – The Myth of Poverty in America

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Bernie Sanders says, “If I’m not mistaken, China has made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any other country in the history of civilization. They’ve done a lot of things for their people.”

Yes they have, unless you are one of “their people” who just happens to be part of the Chinese Muslim community, for example, or not part of the Maoist cultural revolution, which killed an estimated 20-45 million.

But what should we expect from Bernie the Red? This is the same guy who trumpeted the Cuban Communist health-care system. read more

Lasers Keep the Birds Away

Lasers have been found to make effective scarecrows against birds such as starlings and red-winged blackbirds
Lasers have been found to make effective scarecrows against birds such as starlings and red-winged blackbirds

It may not be very pretty, but a new laser “scarecrow” is helping farmers to protect their sweetcorn crops from marauding birds. Developed by University of Rhode Island (URI) professor of plant sciences Rebecca Brown, the new system uses constantly moving beams of green laser light to scare off birds like starlings and red-winged blackbirds before they can tuck into a ripe ear. read more
