Obamacare Grilled on... Comedy Central?

Jon Stewart is good at what he does.

I can admit that.

Even if I do find myself disagreeing with a lot of what he says... preaches... etc.

Last night was pretty good.

If you haven't seen Kathleen Sebelius on his show, you missed a pretty entertaining 7 minutes.

It was epic. Pure gold.

Stewart seemed agitated by the fact that companies could delay Obamacare if they wanted while individuals cannot. Seems the large companies hold the power in this country... :)

Worth watching - I'd skip to about the 3-minutes remaining mark if you're pressed for time.

So... Only Cops Had Guns?

First, let me say I have a ton of respect for Police Officers.

The media?

Not so much.

Thursday afternoon's headlines were littered with rhetoric about a shooter on Capitol Hill.

They were right, except not in the way we've come to understand these headlines.

An unarmed mother with a history of mental illness drove a single car through a barricade near the White House.

Then, police shot the unarmed woman and she died.

The rage of gun-grabbers could once again be felt as headlines across the major news outlets of America had to be changed once again. The "intruder" didn't have a gun. In fact, she had a son with her and that's about it.

I'm not saying police officers didn't have a right to shoot her. I'm just saying the media overplayed the "chaos" of the situation to hyperbole, once again striking firearms fear into the hears of the uneducated electorate.

AR-15 vs. Shotgun

I know the rest of the gunblogs have gone off on this.

It's my turn.

I rarely watch cable news anymore. When I do, it's usually for a short period because I simply cannot stand it.

Monday evening, we watched for a while after dinner. I legitimately wanted to know more about what happened at the Washington D.C. Naval Yard and figured it was no longer a "breaking" news situation as Aaron Alexis had been dead for more than 8 hours.

I was wrong.

In the 20 minutes or so I could stand to watch the Erin Burnett program on CNN, we heard that Alexis used an AR-15 at least a dozen times. It sounded as if this AR-15 is a terribly dangerous gun and certainly not what my father or his father would use for a noble purpose such as hunting.

Then, Tuesday happened.

Alexis used a shotgun. Not an AR-15. Not the weapon the media has come to "know" and hate.

So. I'll turn to alternative ammo media to present a story about 5.56 and how it may be the "greatest caliber ever made"!

All jokes aside, prayers with those who lost loved ones and those who are still recovering from Alexis' paranoia-filled attacks. I certainly wish the men and women who spend their lives working hand-in-hand with our military the best.

New Gun Regulations - No Congress Required

So, he couldn't get it done the way our democracy is set up so now he's going to go about it the way a dictator would?

Maybe I'm being dramatic, but how is it that with one swoop of a pen the President gets to make law? That's not how it's supposed to work.

From the Associated Press:

"...the Obama administration announced new steps Thursday on gun control, curbing the import of military surplus weapons and proposing to close a little-known loophole that lets felons and others circumvent background checks by registering guns to corporations."
