U.N. Small Arms Treaty passes in second session

This one snuck in with very little .  I'm guessing the MSM didn't want to bring attention to it.  Here's a repost from , where they comment on the important bits.

The United Nations Small Arms Treaty passed in its second session. The Media was silent over its passage.

Concluding its two-week session today, the second United Nations conference to review the 2001 Programme of Action on trafficking in small arms and light weapons adopted a consensus outcome document that highlighted the international community’s renewed commitment to preventing, combating and eradicating the illicit trade.

The document’s adoption represented a major achievement for delegations, who had failed to agree on a final outcome at the first review conference, held in 2006. “We accomplished something great today,” said U. Joy Ogwu ( Nigeria), President of the Conference, formally known as the United Nations Conference to Review Progress Made in the Implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects.

Still a conceptual trailer.  The producers are trying to independently raise the money to make the film.

-- and probably saved the life of a responding officer.

Sheriff Grubbs commended the assisting resident for his actions. Law enforcement has determined that the resident acted valiantly and perhaps saved the lives of Sgt. Means and responding deputies, Grubbs said.

“His actions may have also saved the lives of other citizens who could have innocently walked into the situation. Under fire, the resident shooter returned fire at precisely the right moment. One of the rounds struck Conner in the thigh and staggered Conner as he turned fire on Sgt. Means,” said Grubbs. “This staggered Conner from having an effective aim as Conner fired upon Sgt. Means. This also enabled Sgt. Means to accurately return fire on Conner.”

Government is something to fear because as government grows, our freedoms recede

 has a quote from Sen. Ron Johnson, who hasn't forgotten what prompted the founding of the country.

Freshman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said that while government is necessary, it is also “something to fear.”

“It’s pretty easy to describe what ails this country because far too many Americans have forgotten the basic premise of what our founders knew,” Johnson said in a speech on Friday at the Americans for Prosperity Foundation’s “Defending the American Dream Summit” in Washington, D.C.

“What’s even more sad is far too many Americans were never taught the basic premise, and it was that government isn’t something here to solve our problems,” Johnson said.

“Government--we need it,” Johnson said. “But, by and large, government is something to fear because as government grows, our freedoms recede.

Johnson said President Barack Obama’s health care law is what motivated him to run for office in 2010. He also said it resonated with him personally because his daughter, who was born with a heart defect, survived because of the excellent medical treatment she received in this country before Obama’s law was implemented.

“Our story has a happy ending because my wife and I had the freedom to seek out the best medical technique at the time,” said Johnson, adding that his daughter is now working as a neo-natal nurse.

“She’s now taking care of those babies,” Johnson said.

Chuck Norris: Our Founders' Wisdom on Reducing Violent Crime

From :

Who wasn’t shocked and disheartened by yet another tragic mass shooting, this time in Aurora, Colo.? Like millions of Americans, my wife, Gena, and I send our heartfelt condolences and prayers to the victims of this murderous spree and their families.

We, too, commend the heroes who gave their lives to save others. Truly, every victim of this reprehensible executioner is in some way heroic, for the victims were injured or died in the midst of a culture war in which even our theaters and schools have become battlegrounds.

Moreover, we salute and support the Colorado peace officers, emergency medical and relief personnel, bomb squads, counselors, crises management workers, etc. — all of whom care for violent crime victims and rally to reduce the increasing tides of illegal conduct and misguided behavior, just as their colleagues across our country do.

As Americans, we are all concerned with figuring out what we can do about the increase in violent crime. Marisa Randazzo, a psychologist who contributed to an extensive study of school shootings for the Secret Service, said, “The intensity and frequency of the attacks have increased since the events at Columbine.”

So how can we continue to help reduce and prevent violent crime in our communities?

Whistleblower: NSA compiling information on all U.S. citizens, building detailed dossiers


()

:

It turns out that it’s not a conspiracy, and not only does the NSA operate within the borders of the United States, they are assembling detailed dossiers on every single one of us.  William Binney, an NSA whistleblower who recently resigned his post at the NSA over its illegal domestic surveillance programs, notes that the agency is engaged in implementing a total surveillance net over America with the help of private businesses like internet and telecom companies – and their target is YOU.

Domestically, they’re pulling together all the data about virtually every U.S. citizen in the country and assembling that information, building communities that you have relationships with, and knowledge about you; what your activities are; what you’re doing.

So the government is accumulating that kind of information about every individual person and it’s a very dangerous process.
