The latest attack on the right to bear arms once again comes from the democrats (see below for the bill cosponsors. all democrats). H.R. 6241 also known as senate bill S.3458 has been introduced by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy D-NY and is currently in committee. The bill has three primary components with the ultimate aim of preventing online sales of ammunition outright by requiring a photo ID to be presented at the time of the sale, and to limit the amount of ammunition that can be bought at one time to 1000 rounds and to force dealers to report ammunition sales to the government so that your purchases can be tracked.

Previous related efforts by democrats in both the House and the Senate have failed to pass but recent comments by the Supreme Courts most conservative justice, Justice Anton Scalia, will only help to encourage this and additional efforts until eventually gun sales will be pointless because ammo will simply be unavailable. We must remain constantly vigilant against these legislative efforts to overthrow our 2nd amendment rights bu doing an end-run around the constitution.

Kalashnikov (Автомат Калашникова) has introduced (Feb. ’12) the latest in the long running line of military rifles the AK-12. The new version is similar in look to the well-known AK-47, but it is a totally redesigned weapon. It is expected to come in various incarnations including a carbine (AK-12U), submachine gun (PPK-12), sniper rifle (SVK-12), and light machine gun (RPK-12). Models for the civilian market are also being planned.[6] An experimental self lubricating nano-composite coating is also being tested on the AK-12 rifle. Interchangeable barrel lengths and calibers are also being planned.

Kalashnikov claims the new AK-12 has better range, increased fire dispersion, better ergonomics and usability. “The new weapon is as reliable as the AK-74”, the Izmash factory CEO Maksim Kuzyuk says, “but the dynamic characteristics differ significantly. It considerably increases the accuracy of shooting. The rifle is capable of firing in three modes: single shot, three shots and automatic fire mode.” The AK-12 is also capable of using magazines of various types and capacity.

One of the primary new features of this gun is its modularity. The AK-12’s composition will allow it to be operated single-handed, and it can be converted for left or right handed use. The rifle can accommodate night vision and Holo-sights, a target indicator, or a light grenade launcher.

The AK-12 was presented to the public for the first time this month at the defense exhibition in Moscow, Engineer Technologies 2012. Currently in extreme-environments testing phase, new the AK-12 should be available to the public sometime in 2013 or 2014.

Stop and Frisk PracticesAside from the trampling of individual rights and the claims of profiling… how effective is the New York Police Department’s practice of “stop and frisk” for individuals? According to data gathered by the New York Civil Liberties Union indicates that the practice is not only ineffective, but that since 2002, it’s become even LESS effective (82% being innocent in 2002 and 89% being innocent in the first three months of this year.)

Another “profiling” aspect of the objections to these practices are outlined by breaking down the numbers of each race that are stopped. The majority of those stopped are black and Latino, with only a small percentage of those stopped and frisked being white.
