Is Anybody Out There....

In the latest attack on the American people, a decorated War Hero has been arrested and charged with five counts of third degree criminal possession of a weapon, for having empty 30 round AR-15 Magazines in his vehicle.

On Sunday January 6th Staff Sgt. Nathan Haddad, a decorated combat veteran, was driving through Jefferson County New York when he was randomly pulled over for a vehicle check. Haddad, who had five 30 round empty magazines in his possession, was arrested by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and charged with five felony counts.

According to Haddad’s brother, Michael Haddad, Nathan thought these magazines were legally made before the New York Assault Weapons Ban. When Nathan Haddad was arrested the new ban had not even been fully enacted yet.

This is not a criminal, this is not some thug looking to hurt people; this is a decorated combat veteran who was recently honored by the Philadelphia chapter of Blue Star Mothers and the Union League’s Armed Services Council for helping disabled vets get back on their feet. What’s happening to Army veteran Nate Haddad is an absolute attack on liberty. Here we have a man who honorably served his country, who was trusted with weaponry that far exceeded anything he was carrying, that now finds himself facing the possibility of spending years in prison.

Still think these gun control laws are meant to stop criminals?

Nathan Haddad’s brother has set up a legal defense fund for his brother who cannot afford to fight these charges on his own. We ask that you share this story with everyone you know so that this attack on Hassad is seen for what it is, an attack on every law abiding citizen in America.

David Gregory’s stunt worked!
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...s-stunt-worked/

If your with NBC you get the special hall pass...

NBC News and David Gregory are in the clear: District of Columbia Attorney General Irvin Nathan has declared that he will not proceed with prosecution of the “Meet the Press” host for brandishing a 30-round gun magazine on the Dec. 23 edition of the program. Magazines exceeding a capacity of 10 rounds are illegal in the District.

A telling portion of Nathan’s letter on the Gregory issue scolds NBC News for a “feeble and unsatisfactory” effort at determining whether showing the high-capacity clip on air would comply with D.C. laws. Reports have circulated that NBC News got conflicting information on the legality, another consideration referenced in Nathan’s letter: “Although there appears to have been some misinformation provided initially, NBC was clearly and timely advised by an MPD employee that its plans to exhibit on the broadcast a high capacity-magazine would violate D.C. law, and there was no contrary advice
from any federal official.”

More on this very angle from Nathan to the lawyer representing NBC News and Gregory: “While you argue that some NBC employees subjectively felt uncertain as to whether its planned actions were lawful or not, we do not believe such uncertainty was justified and we note that NBC has now acknowledged that its interpretation of the information it received was incorrect.”

“Meet the Press” hasn’t spoken about the matter in detail. It merely released a statement saying, “We displayed the empty magazine solely for journalistic purposes to help illustrate an important issue for our viewers. We accept the District of Columbia Attorney General’s admonishment, respect his decision and will have no further comment on this matter.”
Given that level of tight-lippedness, it’s hard to determine whether NBC News genuinely thought that it’d fall within legal parameters in simply displaying the magazine; or whether it thought that the police wouldn’t launch an investigation of a mere illegal magazine popping up on a harmless public-affairs TV show; or whether it made a conscious decision to defy the law and roll the dice on the consequences

Whatever the thinking among NBC News execs, the prop worked. Among other things, brandishing the ammo clip:

Fort Drum veteran honored at dinner with VIPs for taking care of wounded warrior
http://www.drum.army.mil/mountainee...le.aspx?ID=6283

Anybody else ticked about this???

Army veteran Nate Haddad, an employee at Fort Drum's Network Enterprise Center, appeared in uniform as an honored guest Feb. 28 at the historic Union League building in downtown Philadelphia, Pa., where Lt. Gen. William Troy, right, director of Army Staff at the Pentagon, was a featured guest speaker. (Courtesy photo)

For service members, sometimes just being known as a loyal friend in the military community can lead to the most unexpected and extravagant of recognitions.
Just ask Nate Haddad, a materials handler at Fort Drum’s Network Enterprise Center, who recently found himself in a fancy ballroom of the historic and luxurious Union League building in downtown Philadelphia, Pa., eating a formal dinner alongside Lt. Gen. William Troy, director of Army Staff at the Pentagon, and Sebastian Junger, an award-winning author, filmmaker and war journalist.
Along with an old Army buddy, Haddad was selected earlier this year to be a guest of honor at the dinner by the Philadelphia chapter of Blue Star Mothers and the Union League’s Armed Services Council.
Organizers said the Feb. 28 event was aimed at raising awareness of the challenges, transitions and unique conditions today’s service members undergo.
Haddad, who was medically discharged from the Army in 2010, said he didn’t do anything special to deserve the attention.
The story of why he was singled out by a community hundreds of miles from Fort Drum began late last year, when he received a call from a 10th Mountain Division (LI) buddy, “Kyle” – a combat engineer who was left with a broken back when a roadside bomb detonated under his vehicle in Afghanistan.
Haddad explained the tragic story to an acquaintance near Philadelphia, Pa., an Army veteran who was sympathetic. Haddad then traveled to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., and drove his injured buddy three hours up the road to spend Christmas with the man’s family.
“The worst time to be in the hospital is during a holiday season,” Haddad said. “What I didn’t know at the time was that (my friend) sent out a mass email telling people he had two disabled vets coming over for Christmas and that it would be nice if they had a few letters or presents.”
That email reached Marian L. Moran, president of the Philadelphia chapter of Blue Star Mothers.
Haddad said, largely due to her efforts, some 100 gifts showed up for Christmas.
“It was absolutely astounding,” he said. “We gave away a bunch of it because there was just too much.”
But the expressions of support did not end there.
Soon after the holidays, Moran followed up with Haddad, discovering he was acting not only as a friend but also as a mentor to the injured Soldier – helping Kyle get back on his feet, explaining the Medical Evaluation Board process to him and just offering to help in any way he could.
“I guess she was very inspired and impressed,” Haddad said. “She said the story went along well with the theme of ‘From War to Home’ at her upcoming dinner (at the Union League).”
The Union League of Philadelphia, which was founded 150 years ago to support the policies of President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War, is today a leading civic institution.
Haddad and his friend were not only invited to the dinner as honored guests, but also treated to a weekend in Philadelphia, private tours of the city and an evening in the Union League’s presidential suite.
“I was completely blown away,” he said of the experience. “It was just an absolutely incredible honor.”
Haddad said he and his friend received a standing ovation after the general and Junger were introduced to some 400 guests in the Lincoln Ballroom.
“When Kyle came in, I don’t think there was a dry eye in that whole place,” he said of the young specialist, who was told by doctors in Bagram that he would never walk again. “They gave a brief synopsis of what had happened to him … and here he came walking up (unaided). No cane. No kind of assistance at all.”
Haddad said he believed the evening’s theme, “From War to Home,” was a topic that’s crucial for communities across America to understand and support.
“Yeah, we need to support the troops overseas,” he said. “But at the same time, when they come home, the war is not really over, and they still need support.
“It doesn’t matter if you are a millionaire or you’re just an everyday (citizen),” he added. “You can still serve your country by trying to serve those who are returning from war.”
After more than a decade of active duty, Haddad left the Army just over a year ago.
He had been a ground surveillance systems operator when he severely injured his back and shoulder during Army Special Forces selection training at Fort Bragg, N.C., in 2005. He was re-classified as an interrogator and spent the last several years of active duty undergoing multiple surgeries.
The Blue Star Mother who made the entire event possible talks of Haddad like a son. After the ceremony, Moran said she was very impressed with the care and concern he showed his friend and wished he could be further recognized.
“Nate deserves some kind of award for the leadership he has shown in watching over his buddy,” she said.
Melinda Roney, NEC’s Logistics Branch chief and Haddad’s supervisor, said she fully understands what kind of asset the former Soldier is to the Army.
“Nathan is the type of employee that supervisors wish they had a dozen of,” Roney said. “He consistently works hard, is good-humored and always goes above and beyond without thinking twice.
“Giving 100 percent of himself comes naturally to Nate,” she added.

I don't know what else to say.....
These progressive folks are communists at heart. Americans need to wake up and realize what is going on. I have very little faith in Americans these days simply because they willing to vote in progressives/communists to run our government.

As much as I have spoken or written letters to my reps. Frankly, no one cares or gives a hoot about our freedoms and rather we keep them or lose them. A simple proof would be talking to your friends or neighbors and you will only turn out to be the bizarre of the conversation.

Americans have very little understanding of our Constitutional rights. There is nothing I can do in my power or efforts to fix these problems or even the energy to muster discussions with clueless voters or worse apathy voters.

New York folks are a good example why they are willing to subject themselves to hyper taxes and restrictive freedoms simply because it fits the communists manifesto. I do not feel sorry for New Yorkers and for those that are considering moving to a red state. I ask you to abstain from voting unless you vote according to pro freedom and against progressive.

It is coming down to freedom vs slavery. We will have to pick a side once it all comes apart.

Cuomo is a douche.

Maybe this will make a great opportunity to fast track his paper mache "law" to the Supreme Court.

Between him and Bloomberg, New Yorkers can sleep safe knowing they can have a thimbal full of soda with their 7 round mag.

We live in an Idiocracy with this to lead us into a future.
