Big Brother’s new target: Tracking of all firearms

By Drew Zahn
© 2009 WorldNetDaily

U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., is hoping to pass a firearm-licensing bill that will significantly rewrite gun-ownership laws in America.

Among the more controversial provisions of the bill are requirements that all handgun owners submit to the federal government a photo, thumb print and mental heath records. Further, the bill would order the attorney general to establish a database of every handgun sale, transfer and owner’s address in America.

The bill claims its purpose is “to protect the pubic against the unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with the unrecorded sale or transfer of firearms to criminals and youth.”   More HERE

Illinois, 41 other states in salmonella outbreak

ATLANTA (AP) — A nationwide salmonella outbreak that has struck 42 states has put about one in five of its victims in the hospital, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.

Nearly 400 people have become ill in the outbreak that might have killed one person. An elderly woman in Minnesota had the infection when she died, although it’s not clear that salmonella was the cause, a health department spokesman there said.

The same type of salmonella bacteria has been lab-confirmed in 388 cases nationwide, said the CDC, which is leading the investigation but has not yet released the list of states or determined which foods may have caused people to become sick.  More HERE

$260,000 pot bust starts year right

PEOTONE TOWNSHIP — Will County’s Gang Suppression Unit started 2009 by intercepting a large drug shipment.

Sheriff’s spokesman Pat Barry said officers seized almost 115 pounds of cannabis from a semi-trailer passing through the county early Friday.

“The street value would be estimated at $260,000,” he said.

The bust occurred around 12:45 a.m. as officers were conducting a “criminal interdiction” patrol on Interstate 57.

“They set up to watch semi-tractor trailers driving late at night or acting suspiciously,” Barry said. Full story HERE

LaHood Pick for Transportation Has Stakeholders Buzzing

lahood

Transportation stakeholders were caught off guard Wednesday by news that retiring Rep. Ray LaHood of Illinois, a centrist Republican who held a seat on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in the 1990s, will be the next Transportation secretary.

A senior Democrat confirmed Wednesday evening that LaHood would be President-elect Barack Obama ’s choice. Obama has a news conference scheduled for Thursday, but it is unclear if he will announce LaHood’s selection then. Obama’s transition team did not comment. Transportation Department nominations move through the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.

Although LaHood has a reputation for crossing party aisles and supporting infrastructure investment, transportation advocates had been hoping for someone with a long resume in the sector who could elevate infrastructure issues to greater national prominence. In some transportation quarters, the choice was met with confusion at best, and disappointment at worst.  More HERE

Exclusive: Media Suddenly Discovers Obama’s Case of SCS – Shady Crony Syndrome

Shady Crony Syndrome: An affliction often suffered by politicians . Symptoms include hanging out and doing business with people you wouldn’t want to introduce to your mother and then prevaricating when asked direct questions about your associations. 

An AP story on Wednesday carried some shocking information to those of you who get your news from the “mainstream” media. It lists “notable figures who have drawn scorn and scrutiny” who have crossed paths with our President-elect, including Tony “Convicted of Fraud” Rezko; Rev. Jeremiah “G** d*** America” Wright; William “Blow Up the Capitol” Ayers; Emil “Nepotism” Jones; Rashid “I Heart the PLO” Khalidi; and Fr. Michael “We’re Gonna Snuff Gun Shop Owners” Pfleger.

Let’s not forget the flavor of the week: Gov. Rod “How Much?” Blagojevich, who has been accused of – among other things – trying to “sell” Barack Obama’s Senate seat to the highest bidder.  Full article HERE

Police ask: Are there others?

Similar slaying cases could help detectives

There could be more victims in a string of slayings of Las Vegas Valley prostitutes whose dismembered bodies were found along highways, a Las Vegas police detective said Friday.

Detective Larry Hanna implored law enforcement authorities in other jurisdictions to check for cases similar to those of four young women with ties to Las Vegas. The body parts of three of the women have been found off of highways in Las Vegas, California and Illinois, and a fourth woman who matches the descriptions of the others is missing.

Hanna said the women could have been slain by the same person, possibly a truck driver because of the proximity of the women to major highways.

“I’m not saying they’re connected, I’m saying there’s enough there that we in law enforcement need to work together and pay attention,” he said.

“As my sergeant says, ‘There are no coincidences in law enforcement.'”  More from the ReviewJournal
