The Democrat war on police continued recently when a New York City Police Officer was assassinated in cold blood. We will examine the situation and consider what led up to the murder. How much more of the Obama Legacy are we willing to tolerate?
During our Quiet Time moment from Silencershop.com, we have some positive news to share with you all. Elected officials from Utah, Idaho, and Iowa are pushing new legislation to make silencer even easier to acquire and use. No, this is not the Hearing Protection Act, it is a new bill. Listen louder.

Republicans on Capitol Hill last week introduced bicameral legislation that aims to drop all federal regulation of suppressors and silencers.
The Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act, backed in the Senate by Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Mike Crapo of Idaho, and in the House by Iowa Congressman Steve King, would mandate that suppressors be treated the same as firearm accessories.
“Suppressors can make shooting safer for the millions of hunters and sportsmen that exercise their constitutional right to use firearms every year,” Lee said in a statement from his office. “The current process for obtaining a suppressor is far too expensive and burdensome. Our bill would remove these unnecessary federal regulations and make it easier for firearms users to protect themselves.”
The bill, entered as S.1505 in the Senate and H.R.3139 in the House, would not only remove suppressors from National Firearms Act requirements — a goal of the rival Hearing Protection Act — but also classify them as simple accessories which could be sold over the counter. The Hearing Protection Act, currently with 154 co-sponsors, would eliminate the $200 transfer tax on suppressors by dropping them from NFA rules, but still requires they should be transferred through federal firearms licensees after a background check, regulating them as firearms. Both bills provide for a refund on tax stamps bought since Oct. 22, 2015.
Crapo hails from Idaho, a state that is home to well-known suppressor maker Gemtech as well as a host of smaller manufacturers such as StingerWorx, Ballista and Tactical Innovations; while Lee’s home state of Utah counts SilencerCo and OSS Suppressors among its firearms industries. Iowa, where King’s district is located, became the 42nd state to legalize suppressor ownership by civilians last year.
Gun control advocates, who are opposed to the Hearing Protection Act, immediately slammed the new proposal.
“The bill would end the federal requirement for background checks on firearm silencer sales, and make it legal for convicted felons, domestic abusers, and the dangerously mentally ill to buy and possess silencers,” said Everytown in a statement. “To the satisfaction of NRA headquarters, the legislation would profit gun manufacturers, who could mass market firearm silencers at the expense of public safety.”
The Senate measure has been referred to the Finance Committee while the House version of the SHUSH Act has been double referred to both the Ways and Means and Judiciary committees.
The head of a law enforcement advocacy group lashed out at President Barack Obama in the wake of the Dallas shootings that left five police officers dead, accused the president of carrying out a “war on cops.”
“I think [the Obama administration] continued appeasements at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter, actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems in this country has led directly to the climate that has made Dallas possible,” William Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said in an interview with Fox on Friday morning.”
Johnson said although the Thursday night shooting of law enforcement officers reminded him of “the violence in the streets in the 60’s and 70’s,” he pointed out how Obama’s response appeared different than his predecessors.
“I think one of the big differences then was you had governors and mayors and the president — whether it was President Johnson or President Nixon, Republican or Democrat — condemning violence against the police and urging support for the police,” Johnson said. “Today that’s markedly absent. I think that’s a huge difference, and that’s directly led to the climate that allows these attacks to happen.”
“It’s a war on cops,” Johnson also said. “And the Obama administration is the Neville Chamberlain of this war.”
Obama on Friday morning strongly condemned the Dallas shootings, which happened at the end of a protest about the killings of two black men by police officers earlier this week, as a “vicious, calculated and despicable attack.”
“Let’s be clear there are no possible justifications for these attacks or any violence towards law enforcement,” he said from Warsaw, Poland, where he is attending a NATO meeting
On Thursday, before the Dallas shootings, Obama tried to strike a balance as he talked about anger and grief in the African-American community after the latest killings by police and the feeling among some law enforcement officials that Obama has not always supported them.
“The mobs of the great cities add just so much to the support of pure government as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people, which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.” – Thomas Jefferson (1787)
Barack Obama and his Leftist cadres have been waging a war on cops since his first day in office — part of their politics of disparity playbook strategy to divide and conquer America one constituency group at the time.
Beginning with the 2009 arrest of his friend Henry Louis Gates, when Obama declared the Cambridge police “acted stupidly” — saying this before he had any of the facts — he has co-opted numerous altercations between law enforcement and black citizens to use as “race bait” for his political agenda. He has continuously fomented racial discord in order to maintain the Left’s stranglehold on the black vote.
This has been particularly evident in his second term, when he politicized the chokehold death of career criminal Eric Garner in New York, the utterly justifiable shooting of violent hoodlum Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death of drug dealer Freddie Gray in Baltimore.
Of course, it is the false “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative from the Brown case that gave rise to the so-called “Black Lives Matter” hate group leading the charge against police nationwide and inciting the murder of five police officers in Dallas.
(Note: When there was a shortage of high-profile police-involved deaths to further Obama’s racial division agenda, Obama resorted to other incidents like the case of “White-Hispanic” George Zimmerman, who was exonerated in the shooting death of a black assailant in Florida.)
It is no small irony that Obama has occupationally profiled cops the way he says cops have racially profiled blacks.
There has been a heavy price to pay, both in terms of injured and murdered police officers and the “Ferguson Effect,” in which cops reduce their enforcement efforts to protect against racially trumped-up charges — resulting in significant increases of black-on-black violent crime.
For cop killer Alexander Bonds, a life of crime and incarceration kindled a burning hatred for the law.
The anger finally exploded as the Fourth of July fireworks faded, with the 34-year-old ex-con executing a veteran city cop before dying in a shootout with two other NYPD officers.
Bonds — who lived in Queens and the Bronx when not behind bars — racked up a half-dozen prior arrests, including the brass knuckles beatdown of a police officer in 2001.
But his harshest anti-cop rants came via Facebook, including a menacing and homophobic live harangue in September.
“Y’all n—–s so reluctant to want to say something to the police, man,” he begins in the 11-minute video clip. “Man, police is f—-ts, and this ain’t no gimmick. F—-ts.”
Bonds goes on to accuse the police of raping children before declaring that he’s ready to stand toe-to-toe with the cops.
He closes his monologue with a threat: “N—–s ain’t taking it no more, Mr. Officer. I’m here to tell you, man. … just keep your a– away from mine.”
Residents in Bonds’ Bronx neighborhood gave the paroled goon a wide berth on the local streets. Aaliyah Merino, 15, lived with her family right across the street from Bonds.
