Fighting C. diff. costs hospitals up to $4.8 billion each year, CDC says.

    “. . . As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.
    . . .
    Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban. The letter is shown below.
    . . .
    But now BATFE says that since the bullets can be used in semi-automatic handguns they pose a threat to police and must be banned from production, sale and use. But, as Goodlatte noted, the agency offered no proof. Federal agencies will still be allowed to buy the ammo.

    “This round is amongst the most commonly used in the most popular rifle design in America, the AR-15. Millions upon millions of M855 rounds have been sold and used in the U.S., yet ATF has not even alleged — much less offered evidence — that even one such round has ever been fired from a handgun at a police officer,” said Goodlatte’s letter.

    Even some police don’t buy the administration’s claim. “Criminals aren’t going to go out and buy a $1,000 AR pistol,” Brent Ball, owner of 417 Guns in Springfield, Mo., and a 17-year veteran police officer told the Springfield News-Leader. “As a police officer I’m not worried about AR pistols because you can see them. It’s the small gun in a guy’s hand you can’t see that kills you.”

    Many see the bullet ban as an assault on the AR-15 and Obama’s back-door bid to end production and sale.

    “We are concerned,” said Justin Anderson with Hyatt Gun Shop in Charlotte, N.C., one of the nation’s top sellers of AR-15 style rifles. “Frankly, we’re always concerned when the government uses back-door methods to impose quasi-gun control.” . . .”

    Does the president make the laws? Looks that way.

    ‘FCC Refuses to Testify Before Congress Ahead of Internet Takeover’

    “Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler is refusing to appear before Congress as the FCC prepares a regulatory Internet takeover.

    Not only that, but Wheeler has also refused to publicly release the FCC’s 332-page draft of the Internet regulations. . . .”

    • He ignores the laws, even court rulings on immigration, brings the internet under federal control, bans ammunition without authority, and today said he’d continue to ignore the laws and those rulings “to do what’s best for the American people”. Oh yes, he’s also using to let Iran have nuclear weapons within ten years.
      And the crowd cheers on.

      Makes one wonder if Mr. Wheeler has a newly NSA discovered prurient interest in very young juveniles. Seems otherwise inexplicable that he would propose secret regulations to regulate the Internet and then flatly refuse to appear before congress to explain his actions. We now live in very dangerous times it seems.
