In his pursuit of overarching gun control legislation in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre, President Barack Obama has been dogged. He’s been relentless. He’s been demagogic, too, whether flanking himself with schoolchildren (the implication being that his political opponents don’t care about dead kids) or suggesting that if just one life can be saved by his legislation, we ought to buy into it wholeheartedly (a proposition that would justify almost any sort of government overreach).
But on Wednesday, President Obama took his gun control push a step further: He admitted that only the Constitution stands between him and full gun confiscation.

AGUILA, Ariz. — Maricopa County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating a murder that happened late Monday night near Powell and 2nd Street.
Authorities say an argument ensued after the suspect, 25-year-old Jose Zarate, went to 31-year-old Maria Saucedo’s home around 9:30 p.m.
When the two began fighting about Zarate wanting to have a romantic relationship with Saucedo’s 13-year-old daughter, he pulled out a rifle and shot her in the chest at close range — in the presence of the teen…

Last we saw Obama throwing out a first pitch, it didn’t turn out so well:
Maybe he should stick to shooting hoops. Strike that.
Maybe he should stick to riding his bicycle.

$423,500 in Obama stimulus funding went to study proper condom use at Indiana University. The project created no jobs. The money is gone. The Weekly Standard reported:
The details of a stimulus grant awarded to Indiana University to study condom use have now been released on a government website. The study, titled “Barriers to Correct Condom Use,” is now completed, according to the website, and the university received $423,500 of stimulus funds to perform the study.
The money could have kept the White House doors open for two months.

Readers of Aaron Klein’s latest piecing together of the Benghazi-Syria arms puzzle will take special notice of the role that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appears to have played in pushing the policy to arm the jihad front fighting Assad.
It was the New York Times in February that highlighted Clinton’s “activist” plan to “vet the [Syrian] rebel groups and train fighters, who would be supplied with weapons.” In essence, this was just Libya Redux. In Libya, of course, any supposed figleaf “vetting” process failed to stop the US and NATO from both arming and militarily enabling the victory of jihad forces over the anti-jihad Qaddafi — a red-line-crossing I think of as Uncle Sam joining the jihad. “Our” jihadis in Libya were actually led by senior members of “al Qaeda” in Europe and the Med, with close, demonstrable links to the perpetrators of the catastrophic jihad attacks on London, Madrid, Tunisia and Casablanca — as John Rosenthal lays out in his shocking, dot-connecting new book The Jihadist Plot: The Untold Story of Al-Qaeda and the Libyan Rebellion.
Hillary’s Syria plan, according to the paper, was rebuffed by the Obama White House. Last week, however, Klein points out, the Times reported that a secret plan that sounds like Clinton’s has been implemented by the CIA to arm “rebels” in Syria in fits, starts and escalation since early 2012. The US plan involves Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Croatia and probably other unsavories.
The final step of Nazi control in Austria was registration and confiscation of guns. (Fairly Civil)
It’s not a surprise. Gun Registration often leads to confiscation.
Now this… Harry Reid is pushing a gun control bill that will likely lead to a national gun registry. The Foundry reported:
