Eric Holder: How about gun safety bracelets for firearm owners?

**Written by Doug Powers Coming from the AG held in contempt over documents related to an operation that handed weapons to drug cartels, two of which were found at the scene of the murder of U.S. border agent Brian Terry, this is particularly offensive: Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday that gun tracking bracelets are something the Justice Department (DOJ) wants to “explore” as part of its gun control efforts. “I think that one of the things that we learned when we were trying to get passed those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I had a meeting with a group of technology people and we talked…

Missing: $6 billion from the State Department over last few years; If found please return to taxpayers

**Written by Doug Powers In fairness, the State Department’s excuse for having $6 billion unaccounted for could simply be “forgot to save a few bar receipts .” From the Free Beacon : The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report. The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.

This is from Mozilla’s explanation about why they not only accepted Eich’s resignation, but more than…

Predictable Piers Morgan: Time for Americans to give up their guns

**Written by Doug Powers If you presented plans for a gun control zone that Piers Morgan might approve of — one that looked as if it were designed by Michael Bloomberg himself — it might look a lot like Fort Hood. Even the soldiers aren’t allowed to carry . Possibly recognizing the mounting evidence that “gun free zone” signs aren’t worth the tin they’re printed on, Morgan now thinks the guns all need to go, and owners …
