Problems solved? Kroger will stop selling magazines about “assault rifles”

asalt rifle

Stores just keep making it easier for us to determine where to spend our hard-earned dollars.

From CNN: Kroger (KR) made the announcement just weeks after it said it would stop selling guns and ammunition to anyone under the age of 21. Kroger sells guns through its 45 Fred Meyer stores, located in four Western states.

Kroger didn’t specify how the company will screen gun magazines for “assault rifles.” Some magazines, like Field & Stream, focus on hunting rifles and shotguns. Other magazines focus on handguns. But military-style assault rifles often appear on the cover of magazines like Guns & Ammo, Recoil and Tactical Life.

People often use the term “assault rifles” to refer to semiautomatic military-style rifles that are widely available to civilians in the US.

After a mass shooting last month at a high school in Parkland, Florida, Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS)said it would stop selling assault-style rifles and would no longer sell guns to anyone under the age of 21.

Walmart (WMT), which stopped selling military-style semiautomatic rifles back in 2015, also recently said it wouldn’t sell gun to customers younger than 21.

NJ high school students suspended for sharing pictures of weapons at shooting range on social media

not how it works

These suspensions would never be upheld in a court of law. Sue the heck out of the school district if they don’t rescind these suspensions.

From A New Jersey school district that allegedly suspended two high school students this week over a gun photo taken during a family visit to a private shooting range is facing community backlash and the threat of a lawsuit over district policies.

The photo of four rifles, ammunition clips and a gun duffel bag was shared by one of the students on the social media app Snapchat with the caption “fun day at the range,” according to Lacey Township resident Amanda Buron, a family friend of one of the students.

A screen capture of the image made the rounds among other students and later brought to the attention of Lacey Township High School officials. Buron said the students received a five-day in-school suspension for violating the school’s policy on weapons possession.

News of the suspension soon circulated on social media groups for Lacey and quickly drew hundreds of responses harshly criticizing the district’s action and its policy on weapons, which many called overly broad.

Lacey schools Superintendent Craig Wigley said in an email to NJ Advance Media on Thursday that “information posted on social media is incorrect” and that private matters involving students cannot be discussed. He declined to say what aspect of the accounts posted on social media is inaccurate.

“We are not at will to contradict public opinion on the internet,” Wigley wrote. He declined to be interviewed by phone.

Many have called for a huge turnout at the school board’s next scheduled meeting on Monday at the high school to protest the decision. A few people noted that the image was ill-timed after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida that killed 17.

Thousands of students around New Jersey staged walkouts and held in-school programs on Wednesday in response to the shooting in Parkland.

The controversy at Lacey’s high school has drawn the attention of a New Jersey gun advocacy group, which sent a cease and desist letter to the district threatening a lawsuit if its policy remained unchanged and the suspension of the students was not overturned.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs letter cited the rule stating students could be suspended for up to a year if they are reported to be in possession of a weapon of any type for any reason or purpose on or off school grounds.”

Multiple attempts by NJ Advance Media to reach the students and their families were unsuccessful. Buron said both families are upset at how the incident was handled. Both teens fell behind in Advance Placement courses due to the in-school suspensions, she said.

ANJRPC, the gun group, said the bigger issue is with the policy itself.

“The policy is clearly wrong and violates the Second Amendment,” ANJRPC executive director Scott Bach said. “We hope that they’re reasonable people and they will fix it. If they don’t, we’re prepared to take legal action.”

The ANJRPC also demanded Lacey school officials apologize to the two boys and clear their records.

Shocker, not: Libtards who are against gun violence promote violence against NRA members

nra rant2

If you’ve ever visited Dana Loesch’s Twitter timeline, you will see that there is a lot of hate and death wishes from liberals. Ditto for her husband Chris. (Dana is a spokeswoman for the NRA and she and her husband are big defenders of the Second Amendment.)

Libtards who CLAIM they are against violence routinely wish death upon her, her husband, her children and any one who is a conservative and/or a member of the NRA.

On Thursday, a jerk on Twitter – @StephenCerdatweeted out the following:

you and Chris are still at 303 Chestnut Cove Circle in Southlake, TX right? Just want to make sure I am letting everyone know the right address to come share their view with you on the NRA

I posted this Tweet as Dana made it available, including the house number, on her timeline. She tweeted the following:

“Hey guys, just wanted you to see what I have to put up with from anti-gun advocates. Yeah, I guess if you want to scare my kids, come on over. Shame on you people.”

Stephen claims he’s not promoting any violence against Dana and her family. He just wants people to “talk” to her about the lies she spreads. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Later that afternoon the jerk’s Twitter account was gone.

With such violence directed at NRA members, it is not surprising that none of us are willing to surrender our guns. Silly libtards…


Sean Penn’s debut novel calls for the assassination of president identical to Trump

sean penn

From Daily Mail: Actor Sean Penn’s debut novel’s main character calls for the assassination of the president and dares the commander in chief to ‘Tweet me, b****’, can reveal.

The two-time Oscar winner’s 176-page fiction, titled Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, is about a ‘modern American man, entrepreneur, and part-time assassin’.

The main character, septic tank cleaner Bob Honey, tells tales of working with military contractors in Iraq, being employed by the government to kill the nation’s resource-draining elderly, and meeting an El Chapo-esque drug lord who had just escaped prison.

Penn first released the gonzo journalism-style novel as an audiobook in 2016 under the pseudonym ‘Pappy Pariah’.

During appearance at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art at the time, Penn said he had close bond with Pariah, but also called him a sociopath. Penn didn’t publicly acknowledge that he wrote the book until months later when he said he wanted to expand on the story and publish it in paper form.

He said in a news release: ‘It was soon after I finished narrating the short audio of ‘Bob Honey’ that I began to feel I had only scratched the surface of this story I wanted to tell. Expanding that original idea into a fully-realized novel has been an exciting challenge.’

The book’s main character, Bob Honey, is painted as a 55-year-old Southern Californian who gets angry at the news, despite not fully understanding it.

Baby Boomer Honey tells readers of his neighbor’s death by an out-of-control helicopter, his imaginary young girlfriend and a ‘yellow lives matter’ march – referring to Aryan blonds – at the Republican National Convention.

Throughout the novel, Honey is followed around by an investigative reporter, who he seems skeptical of. The reporter tells Honey he wanted to do a story after neighbors raised concerns about his odd behavior and strange work hours.

Toward the end of the novel, Honey admits himself into a hospital and writes a letter to the president of the United States, who is eerily similar to Donald Trump but goes by the name, Mr. Landlord.

He writes: ‘Many wonderful American people in pain and rage elected you. Many Russians did too. Your position is an asterisk accepted as literally as your alternative facts.

Though the office will remain real, you never were nor will be. A million women so dwarfed your penis-edency on the streets of Washington and around the world on the day of your piddly inauguration – unprecedented (spelling ok?).’

The character says that those against Mr. Landlord ‘own the most powerful weapons on earth’ which include ‘dreams, the science of physics, seismology, geology, topography, and typhoons’.

Honey continues: ‘Your gasconade and cache of catchphrases, so limiting and reflexive, escalate the emasculation of you by a world whose patience is in nuclear peril. These sciences and sensibilities are our guns your narcissism neglects.

‘Weapons your NRA masters are incapable of proffering for profit, and outside your dutiful military’s might, mandate or mission. So to your attempt to posthumously assassinate our Founding Fathers, and bait and switch your core, I say I will eat where the fish are glowing.

‘You are not simply a president of impeachment, you are a man in need of an intervention. We are not simply a people in need of an intervention, we are a nation in need of an assassin. I am God’s squared-away man. I am Bob Honey. That’s who I am. Sir, I challenge you to a duel. Tweet me, b****. I dare you.’

Matt Damon reportedly moving to Australia to get away from President Trump

Hey Matt, can you take some of your buddies with you?

From Yahoo: Matt Damon and his family are reportedly moving to Australia to get away from Donald Trump.

Page Six reported on Thursday that the actor has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Wales and has spread word of his imminent move to his close friends.

“Matt’s been telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia,” a source told the outlet, adding that the move is because of his fundamental disagreement with President Trump’s policies.

“Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work — as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting,” the source explained. “He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids.”

It’s unclear whether Damon and his family will live in Australia full-time or how long they plan on staying. The Oscar-winning screenwriter has four children with wife Luciana Barroso: Isabella, 11, Gia, 9, and Stella, 7, as well as daughter Alexia Barroso, 18, whose biological father is Luciana’s ex-husband.

According to Sydney’s Sunday Telgraph, Damon’s newly-purchased land in Australia is directly next door to fellow “Thor: Ragnarok” actor Chris Hemsworth.

As Page Six notes, Damon has no announced projects in the works, other than producing an adaptation of “Agatha Christie’s “Witness for the Prosecution,” which still star pal Ben Affleck, and his cameo in the upcoming all-female “Ocean’s 11” spinoff film, “Ocean’s 8.”

Damon and Affleck made headlines earlier in the week when it was announced that they would support inclusion riders in all future deals.

Damon has not yet responded to reports that he’s moving to Australia.


Get ready to empty your wallets, Seattle: Task force recommends new taxes to address homelessness

perfect enemy of good

The City of Seattle has already allocated over $37M to address homelessness and King County has budgeted over $195M for a grand total of over $232M. But it’s never enough.

From MyNorthwest.comA head tax on Seattle businesses may not be enough, according to a task force that is now recommending additional taxes on the city’s wealthy residents.

“We therefore believe that the City of Seattle should pass legislation this year to generate $150 million per year in new progressive revenue, including an Employee Hours Tax,” the task force states in its report to the council. “… wisely invested over the next 10 years, will result in significant and measurable progress toward ending the crisis of homelessness and housing insecurity in our city.”

The March 9 report from Seattle’s Progressive Revenue Task Force on Housing and Homelessness primarily proposes an employee hours tax — also referred to as a head tax. But it also proposes new taxes, including estate and CEO taxes.

(The first bulleted item in the report overview: “There is an urgent need for fiscal discipline.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.)

Additionally, the task force recommends the city change its approach to the homeless crises. For example, providing special RV tags allowing them to park without fear of being ticketed.

The task force notes that cuts could be made to some city spending, such as the criminal justice budget. But it concludes that new revenue is the main solution to the homelessness crisis. The task force states that “tax burdens should not be increased lightly,” and that the homeless crisis is caused, in part, by Seattle’s economic boom.

Employee hours tax: The task force recommends the city establish an employee hours tax to go into effect Jan. 1, 2019. It provides a range of options based on employer size and type. In the end, it aims to raise between $25 million to $75 million a year. The reports states: Employers that can afford to contribute more should pay more, while employers that cannot afford to contribute as much should pay less.

Noting that it may not be perfect, the report encourages the council to “not let the perfect be the enemy of the good.”

Care should be taken not to disproportionately impact POC– and other minority-owned businesses and employers, or to speed the process of gentrification and displacement that are already transforming business districts as well as residential areas in many neighborhoods where communities of color have historically resided.

The city would tax employers either with a flat fee per employee or as a percentage of payroll. It also suggests the council design the tax to vary depending on business size. The report states that the council should design exceptions, such as businesses under a certain revenue threshold.

Other new taxes: The task force recommends additional taxes to raise beyond the $75 million employee hours tax. It admits that the amount it proposes won’t cover the entire housing need, but will be “a solid start” to solving the problem through affordable housing programs.

The city can leverage state and federal funding, but still Seattle must pitch in ~ $170,000 per unit. That means we need a total of $3.4 billion, or $340 million per year for 10 years. That $340 million annual need only covers capital costs, not ongoing operations. The task force therefore proposes a variety of additional tax strategies beyond an employee hours tax.
