WRAL TV5 has decided to post a database of individuals that hold Concealed Carry Permits in NC. Now, YES, that is PUBLIC INFORMATION BUT—– To get that information, you must request it, in writing, through the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation.

Grass Roots North Carolina, a gun advocacy group, has released a little “TO DO” list. The info below describes in detail what is requested. The ball is in YOUR COURT now.

Say NO to WRAL and ALL of their Advertisers.

On Thursday, WRAL-TV published an article on its site entitled “Rural areas lead in concealed weapons permit rates.” Unfortunately, within the article a section entitled “Find concealed carry permit-holders in your area” contained a database of permit-holders searchable by address, potentially revealing to criminals the homes from which firearms may be stolen.

WRAL web editor Kelly Hinchcliffe responded to complaints by insisting that permit information is public record, ignoring the fact that obtaining it requires a written request to the State Bureau of Investigation. Moreover, although the names of permit-holders were not disclosed, the partial address information (including apartment numbers), particularly on small streets, makes it possible for criminals to target specific homes for theft.

A lengthy conversation with WRAL General Manager Steve Hammel, while pleasant, produced no significant movement on the part of the station. Their position is that they have sufficiently de-identified the address information. When it was noted that street numbers had appeared initially for some records, he noted that it had been corrected by Friday. He also said they would “look at” trailing apartment numbers which are still part of the addresses. But the bottom line is that the station refuses to pull the link.



It has been longstanding policy at GRNC that any media attempt to invade the privacy of either handgun purchase permit-holders or concealed handgun permit-holders would be met with economic action against the media outlet and its advertisers. It is now time for you to act: Help GRNC make an example that will leave an impression on media outlets to discourage them from further acts of journalistic irresponsibility!



In an apparent attempt to shame gun owners, some media outlets have a history of publishing the names of gun purchasers. But that was many years ago, before the advent of the Internet. Things are now far more reciprocal. So let’s talk a bit about reporter Mark Binker, the apparent engineer of the piece to reveal concealed handgun permit-holders.

But first, an admonition: DO NOT THREATEN OR HARASS MARK BINKER. If you contact him to express your disappointment with the article …





Mark Gerald Binker is an up-and-coming reporter. After making an excellent career move in leaving the Greensboro News & Record just three months ago, he landed a job with WRAL-TV. Mark and his lovely wife, Marla J. Binker, reside at 17XX Chadstone Ct., Raleigh, NC 27615-7403. His cell number is 919-621-0970 and his work email is mbinker@wral.com.

Mark has exceptional media experience, including:

1987-1991, 1997: Interim Reporter, Capital News Service, College Park, MD.

1996-1997: Associate Editor, CD Publications, Silver Springs, MD.

1998-2000: Suburban Staff Writer, Philadelphia Enquirer, Philadelphia, PA

2000-2005: Business/ local/ government Reporter, News & Record, Greensboro, NC

2005-March 2012: State Government & Politics Reporter, News & Record, Greensboro, NC

March 2012- Present: Multimedia Investigative Reporter, WRAL TV, Raleigh, NC

Mr. Binker is also very well educated, having received his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (1995) at The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD; and his Masters of Arts in Journalism (1997 University of Maryland, College Park, MD).

Happily, Mark is one of the few reporters who is not a registered Democrat. According to the State Board of Elections, he is registered as Unaffiliated, with a gender of male, a race of white, and an ethnicity of “undesignated.” His voter registration number is 000099949361, his registration date is 08/29/2005, and his precinct is 01-42. For better or worse, he is, in fact, eligible to vote.

But it is Mark’s family for which he truly deserves commendation. In addition to his lovely wife Marla, whom he married slightly less than twelve years ago, Mark enjoys two fine sons, Mason and Max. (Mark, Marla, Mason and Max. Cute, no?)

Marla herself seems quite talented, with photo credits to her name, plus what appears to be a fascinating history of her family, from which it appears her maiden name was Smith and her family, perhaps, originally Jewish Russian. She keeps extensive photo albums of the family’s activities, including a Portland vacation, Christmases, birthday parties, pony rides and sailing expeditions in Washington state’s Gig Harbor.

But Mark is no slouch either, as evidenced by “adventures of the Binker family in Raleigh, NC.” The Binkers enjoy Disneyland vacations and, apparently, a strong family bond.

In deference to the fact that Mark’s article didn’t QUITE reveal the most personal information of concealed handgun permit-holders, we have withheld Mark’s exact address and additional information about his family even though they are available on the Internet as what WRAL apologist Kelly Hinchcliffe calls “public information.”


 Immediate Action Required

We need you to do three things:

1.       CONTACT WRAL GENERAL MANAGER STEVE HAMMEL and let him know that you will shun both the station and its advertisers until such time that the concealed handgun permit-holder search engine is removed and an apology is made to NC permit-holders;

2.       CONTACT WRAL ADVERTISER CHRIS LEITH DODGE and let them know they are advertising with a media outlet bent on attacking gun rights, and that they should withdraw their advertising immediately.

3.       CONTACT WRAL REPORTER MARK BINKER and politely let him know you don’t appreciate the invasion of the privacy of concealed handgun permit-holders.



WRAL-TV General Manager STEVE HAMMEL: Email shammel@wral.com AND call him personally in his office at: 919-821-8520

WRAL advertiser CHRIS LEATH: Email sales@chrisleithdodge.com AND call him personally in his office at: 919-821-8520

Contact WRAL reporter MARK BINKER at: Aw, heck, you probably saw that in the article above.

Deliver This Message



To Chris Leith Dodge:

Dear Mr. Leith:

Unfortunately, your advertising dollars are being used to attack my rights. I’m sorry you have been caught up in this, but one of your major advertising venues, WRAL-TV, has attacked the rights of lawful North Carolina gun owners, subjecting them to criminal predation by releasing nearly complete addresses of concealed handgun permit-holders.

As you are probably aware, NC concealed handgun permit-holders are overwhelmingly law-abiding, politically conservative and fiscally responsible, making us your best customers.

Although I’m sure you have no intent to attack the right to keep and bear arms, your advertising dollars are being used to do precisely that. As such, I am asking you to contact WRAL and tell them to stop attacking law-abiding citizens and apologize for the attacks they have so far made.

If they fail to respond to your entreaties, I further ask that you withdraw all advertising expenditures from the station and let me know so that I can tout your Dodge truck dealership to lawful gun owners statewide as one who supports the rights of lawful Americans.

I look forward to patronizing your dealerships as supporters of the United States Constitution.



To WRAL & Mark Binker:


I find it difficult to fathom that you would be so journalistically irresponsible as to publish even partial addresses of concealed handgun permit-holders. Ignoring the fact that this group is overwhelmingly responsible, with a rate of criminal prosecutions just a fraction of the general population; ignoring the fact that permit-holders are threats to no one, making their location irrelevant to your readership, it amazes me that your legal department would allow you to print what may be tantamount to an invitation to burglarize unoccupied homes.

Your claims that the information is already public ring hollow: In truth, getting it requires a written inquiry from the State Bureau of Investigation. In truth, you are compromising the personal information of law-abiding North Carolinians not for public benefit, but instead as part of your effort to undermine the right to keep and bear arms.

Remove the information from your site immediately and make apologies to the concealed handgun permit-holders you have threatened. If you fail to do so, I will not only stop patronizing your station and website, I will actively work to deny you advertising revenue.

UPDATE:  July 19, 2012 Statement from Chris Leigh Auto Group

Article Date: Thu, July 19, 2012

As you may be aware WRAL published an article that upset many of our customers and members of our community. The people affected were those like me; strong believers in our US Constitution and our 2nd amendment rights. Somehow I wound up in the crosshairs of this firestorm, and that’s not a problem. Now I can take action.

Of the hundreds of advertisers with WRAL, some blogger or bloggers instructed it’s readers to contact me and only me, to let me know that my ad dollars were funding WRAL’s attack on North Carolina gun owners and their rights. I don’t disagree with that sentiment, plus there are many more merchants that spend much more to advertize on WRAL than me so I’m sure these bloggers are not done with their work.

As for me and my company, I’m a concerned citizen and strong believer in our constitutional rights. I have made contact with WRAL and I have instructed them to remove anything that bears the Chris Leith name. At this point they have chosen not to pull the article and therefore I have severed ties with them. I really hate that this situation has occurred and I hope my actions will speak louder than words.

God Bless America – Chris Leith

Well….my headline MIGHT be a little misleading but if we look at the FACTS, then it will be TRUE. Please read on…

The Gadsden VIPER just might Bite ole BHO. Click to enlarge the image.

Hat tip to “Poor Richards News”

The Obama campaign has spent most of the past two days spreading thoroughly debunked smears that Mitt Romney “may have committed a felony.”  Well, since we’re on the topic of felonies let’s discuss a couple of felonies that Obama himself admitted to committing.


First up, this passage from ‘Dreams from My Father':


    “I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though—Mickey, my potentional intiator had been just a little too eager for me to go through with that.”


“Blow,” in case you weren’t aware by now is another word for Cocaine, and “smack” would be heroine.  So Obama snorted cocaine when he could afford it but turned down heroin because he didn’t like his potential dealer.  Obama has made no secret of his past cocaine use, even liberal news outlets like the New York Times and the Washington Post have written about it. 


The President would have been in Hawaii during his high school years, and in the state of Hawaii cocaine possession of any amount is a felony.


Let’s move on to the President’s past marijuana use.  President Obama has admitted many times to smoking pot, and while marijuana possession is not necessarily a felony in Hawaii, what Obama describes in Dreams From My Father most certainly is:


    “Junkie. Pothead. That’s where I’d be headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man. Except the highs hadn’t been about that, me trying to prove what a down brother I was. Not by then anyway. I got just the opposite effect, something that could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory. I had discovered that it didn’t make any difference whether you smoked reefer in the white classmmate’s sparkling new van, or in the dorm room of some brother you’d met at the gym, or on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had dropped out of school and now spent most of their time looking for an excuse to brawl.”


Obama attended high school at Punahou School, a prep college preparatory school that had dormitories much like a college campus would, and in the above passage he admits smoking pot in those dorm rooms. 


In Hawaii, it is a felony to possess marijuana within 750 feet of school grounds, parks, or within 10 feet of a parked school vehicle.  It is punishable for up to five years in prison and fines up to $10,000.


People who live in glass houses should not throw rocks.  By floating baseless accusations against Mitt Romney, President Obama has re-opened the book on his own past.  His admissions of illegal activity deserve to be scrutinized. 


Now, since here in NC it is illegal for a Felon to run for office, I guess Barack Hussein Obama will not appear on our ballots.


Sec. 8.  Disqualifications for office.

The following persons shall be disqualified for office:

First, any person who shall deny the being of Almighty God.

Second, with respect to any office that is filled by election by the people, any person who is not qualified to vote in an election for that office.

Third, any person who has been adjudged guilty of treason or any other felony against this State or the United States, or any person who has been adjudged guilty of a felony in another state that also would be a felony if it had been committed in this State, or any person who has been adjudged guilty of corruption or malpractice in any office, or any person who has been removed by impeachment from any office, and who has not been restored to the rights of citizenship in the manner prescribed by law.

Message from the NRA-ILA

NRA Fights for Second Amendment as U.N. Moves Forward on Arms Trade Treaty


Posted on July 13, 2012


As the U.N. Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty entered its second week of negotiations, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre addressed the conference and made the position of the NRA and American gun owners crystal clear: No treaty that includes civilian arms is acceptable.


Here is the text of the speech:

Mr. President, thank you for this brief opportunity to address this conference. I am Wayne LaPierre and for 21 years now, I have served as Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association of America.


The NRA is the largest and most active firearms rights organization in the world, with four million members who represent 100 million law-abiding Americans who own firearms.


On behalf of those 100 million American gun owners, I am here to announce NRA’s strong opposition to anti-freedom policies that disregard American citizens’ right to self-defense.


No foreign influence has jurisdiction over the freedoms our Founding Fathers guaranteed to us.


We will not stand idly by while international organizations, whether state-based or stateless, attempt to undermine the fundamental liberties that our men and women in uniform have fought so bravely to preserve – and on which our entire American system of government is based.


For six years, the NRA has closely monitored this effort for an Arms Trade Treaty.


We have watched with increasing concern and, one year ago, I delivered to the Preparatory Committee our objections to including civilian arms in the ATT. I said then … and I will repeat now … that the only way to address NRA’s objections is to simply and completely remove civilian firearms from the scope of the treaty.


That is the only solution. On that there will be no compromise. American gun owners will never surrender our Second Amendment freedom. PERIOD.


Our Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment so Americans would never have to live in tyranny.


For any foreign entity to attempt to encroach on that great freedom is offensive to every American who has ever breathed our free air, or who has ever used a firearm to fend off an evil attacker – whether a criminal breaking into their home, or in defense of their family against a tyrant halfway around the world.


Our Second Amendment is freedom’s most valuable, most cherished, most irreplaceable idea. History proves it. When you ignore the right of good people to own firearms to protect their freedom, you become the enablers of future tyrants whose regimes will destroy millions and millions of defenseless lives.


Without apology, the NRA wants no part of any treaty that infringes on the precious right of lawful Americans to keep and bear arms.


Let there be no confusion. Any treaty that includes civilian firearms ownership in its scope will be met with the NRA’s greatest force of opposition.


Mr. President, there are those who believe that merely excluding civilian firearms from the ATT preamble will be sufficient.


Let me state – in the clearest possible terms – that it is not. A preamble to a treaty has no force of law. We know that, and a strong bipartisan majority of the United States Senate and House of Representatives know it as well.


Any Arms Trade Treaty must be adopted by two-thirds of the U.S. Senate, which has 100 members. Already, 58 Senators have objected to any treaty that includes civilian arms, and a majority of the U.S. House of Representatives also opposes such a treaty.


The NRA represents hundreds of millions of Americans who will never surrender our fundamental firearms freedom to international standards, agreements, or consensus.


America will always stand as a symbol of freedom and the overwhelming force of a free, armed citizenry to protect and preserve it.


On behalf of all NRA members and American gun owners, we are here to announce that we will not tolerate any attack – from any entity or organization whatsoever – on our Constitution or our fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms.


Thank you.

To watch the speech, use this link.
This speech is the culmination of nearly 20 years of NRA involvement in U.N. gun control issues in general, and the push for an Arms Trade Treaty in particular. Until 2009, the U.S. opposed the ATT. The Obama administration changed that position and agreed to move ahead with negotiations.


Proponents of the treaty continue to claim that the treaty will have no impact on American firearms laws.  But, as LaPierre explained in his speech to the conference’s “Preparatory Committee” last summer, inclusion of civilian arms would necessitate the imposition of gun registration and owner licensing and vast new record keeping and tracking requirements.


Proposals made at the conference bear out those concerns. Draft language circulated so far contains no recognition of citizens’ rights–only the so-called “right of states.” And while the language assumes that arms cause conflict, there is no admission that arms in the hands of citizens can be used to resist tyranny or even to prevent crime.  Various provisions also refer to organized crime, to creation of a “national control system” and to regulation of “end users,” all implying new domestic controls under the guidance of a permanent U.N. bureaucracy.


Perhaps most important on a practical level is that the current draft’s “scope” includes all civilian arms and ammunition. Mexico in particular has advocated this in countless statements to the conference. Mexico even argued briefly that the treaty should include items such as bows, arrows and swords, but quickly backed away from the embarrassing position.


The inclusion of civilian arms in the treaty is a direct threat to the Second Amendment with far-reaching implications. Without the strong opposition of the United States, it is significantly more likely the final treaty will include the firearms that our Second Amendment protects.


Key Facts About the ATT (Arms Trade Treaty)


Gun owners must understand the true threat this treaty poses and also the actions that are required for the treaty to have force in the U.S. The treaty poses a very real threat, and gun owners can maximize our efforts to prevent ratification of the treaty by understanding those threats. Here are answers to some common questions about the treaty process.


When will the treaty be signed?


The U. N. will finish drafting the Arms Trade Treaty in late July. It will then be sent to the U.N. General Assembly for approval. After General Assembly approval (likely this fall), many member states are expected to immediately sign on. But there is no deadline for doing so, no date for signing has been set, and the treaty does not need any particular number of signatories to “pass.”


Heads of state, or their designees, can sign international treaties at any time, even years or decades later. However, for political reasons, President Obama might choose not to sign immediately while facing reelection. Also, even if the president were to sign the treaty right away, he is not required to send the treaty to the Senate for ratification at any specific time. Nor is there usually any deadline for ratification. (For example, in 1997, President Clinton signed an anti-gun treaty negotiated through the Organization of American States; the U.S. still hasn’t ratified that treaty.)


Currently, 58 senators are on record in strong opposition to the treaty if it includes civilian firearms, as is widely expected. In addition, as we reported last week, 130 members of the U.S. House have also written to President Obama, expressing similar concerns.


What will be the treaty’s effects?


Treaty advocates falsely claim that the treaty will have no impact on national gun laws. Proponents have repeatedly called for the treaty to cover civilian arms and to require national systems of licensing, registration and other restrictions.


The threat to our Second Amendment rights posed by the treaty are real, but the process for ratifying the treaty gives gun owners the time and the ability to block ratification–if we take action to hold our elected officials accountable.


What force would the treaty have under U.S. law if the Senate ratified it?


A treaty could have a severe effect, as described above, but it would not override the Constitution.


Treaties have the same legal standing as laws passed by Congress.  They cannot override the Constitution and they are subject to constitutional challenge.  However, they can override statutes passed prior to ratification of the treaty.


This means any restrictions imposed directly by a U.N. treaty, or indirectly by congressional legislation or executive action to implement a treaty, would have to be challenged on their own merits under the Second Amendment. Obviously, it would be far better to prevent an anti-gun treaty from being signed or ratified in the first place.


Can the President bypass the ratification process?


Strictly speaking, no. But an anti-gun administration could still try to use the treaty to impose gun control in the U.S.


Even if the Senate defeats any effort to ratify the treaty, anti-gun activists in the administration could argue that, under customary international law, the U.S. must implement the treaty’s restrictions lest we violate its “object and purpose.”


This tactic has been used before. For example, the United States has never ratified the U.N. Law of the Sea treaty, but treats parts of that treaty as binding on the U.S.


The Obama administration could easily take the same approach with respect to an Arms Trade Treaty–for instance, by arguing in court that a narrow interpretation of the Second Amendment is necessary to comply with our obligations under “customary international law.”

Respectfully submitted by SilenceDogood2010 this Fourteenth Day of July in the Year of our Lord, Two Thousand Twelve.

I’d like to make you a business offer.

Seriously. This is a real offer. In fact, you really can’t turn me down, as you’ll come to understand in a moment…

Here’s the deal.

You’re going to start a business or expand the one you’ve got now. It doesn’t really matter what you do or what you’re going to do. I’ll partner with you no matter what business you’re in – as long as it’s legal.

But I can’t give you any capital – you have to come up with that on your own. I won’t give you any labor – that’s definitely up to you. What I will do, however, is demand you follow all sorts of rules about what products and services you can offer, how much (and how often) you pay your employees, and where and when  you’re allowed to operate your business. That’s my role in the affair – to tell you what to do.

Now in return for my rules, I’m going to take roughly half of whatever you make in the business each year. Half seems fair, doesn’t it? I think so. Of course, that’s half of your profits. You’re  also going to have to pay me about 12% of whatever you decide to pay your employees because you’ve got to cover my expenses for promulgating all of the rules about who you can employ, when, where, and how. Come on, you’re my  partner. It’s only “fair.”

Now… after you’ve put your hard-earned savings at risk to start this business, and after you’ve worked hard at it for a few decades (paying me my 50% or a bit more along the way each year), you might decide you’d like to cash out – to finally live the good  life. Whether or not this is “fair” – some people never can afford to  retire – is a different argument. As your partner, I’m happy for you to sell whenever you’d like… because our agreement says, if you sell, you have to pay  me an additional 20% of whatever the capitalized value of the business is at  that time.

I know… I know… you put up all the original capital. You took all the risks. You put in all of the labor. That’s all true. But I’ve done my part, too. I’ve collected 50% of the profits each year. And I’ve always come up with more rules for you to follow each year. Therefore, I deserve another, final 20% slice of the business.

Oh… and one more thing…

Even after you’ve sold the business and paid all of my fees… I’d recommend buying lots of life insurance. You see, even after you’ve been retired for years, when you die, you’ll have to pay me 50% of whatever your estate is worth.

After all, I’ve got lots of partners and not all of them are as successful as you and your family. We don’t think it’s “fair” for your kids to have such a big advantage. But if you buy enough life insurance, you can finance this expense for your children.

All in all, if you’re a very successful entrepreneur… if you’re one of the rare, lucky, and hard-working people who can create a new company, employ lots of people, and satisfy the public… you’ll end up paying me more than 75% of your income over your life. Thanks so much.

I’m sure you’ll think my offer is reasonable and happily partner with me… but it doesn’t really matter how you feel about  it because if you ever try to stiff me – or cheat me on any of my fees or  rules – I’ll break down your door in the middle of the night, threaten you and your family with heavy, automatic weapons, and throw you in  jail. That’s how civil society is supposed to work, right? This is Amerika, isn’t it?

That’s the offer America gives its entrepreneurs.  And the idiots in Washington wonder why there are no new  jobs…

Fox News Video Report on “Obama’s Lies,” Sends Left Into Frenzy. Watch it Here…Awesome !!!



Ya know when you’ve hit em where it hurts, by their reaction. Enjoy, Please Share; Well Done Fox !!!

All images are from the Fox News video and/or copied from the Barracuda Brigades Blogspot. Thanks again Barracuda!

Here’s the Youtube video.





Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday aired a scathing review of the first three years of President Barack Obama’s term in office, countering his “hope” and “change” motto with a series of “then and now” facts about the national debt, jobless rate, gas prices and more.


The Debt. Click for a larger image.






Number of folks on Food Stamps. Click for larger image.



“What sort of change have we really seen over the past four years from the Obama administration?” co-host Steve Doocy asked by way of introduction.


The four-minute clip is a mash-up of the president’s speeches over the last three-and-a-half years, matching his promises and statements with the reality of rising costs. Starting with the frenzied “O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA!” crowd chants of four years ago, it’s quickly replaced by ominous tones.






Gas Prices.


“I pledge to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office…All of us need to act more responsibly on behalf of a better economic future…Hope is the guiding force behind the most improbable changes this country has ever made,” Obama says, before his statements are countered with the national debt: “$10 trillion then“ and ”$15 trillion now.”

Beef Prices up 28%. Click for larger image

Bacon prices up 23.3%. Click for larger image.

“We cannot wait for good jobs and living wages and pensions…Jobs must be our number one focus…We know it’s time to create the good-paying jobs, jobs that pay well and cannot be outsourced,” he says, before the “then and now” jobless rate is highlighted: 7.8 percent then, 8.3 percent now.








And if you look at the REAL Unemployment numbers, the U-6….. well, I’ll let the chart speak for itself.
