Samantha Power doesn’t object, Iran gets seat on UN Women’s Rights body

Originally posted on BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!:

Without objection from the Obama administration, Iran gets a seat on the UN’s women’s rights body.
CNS News  reported:

The Obama administration on Wednesday criticized Iran’s election to the U.N.’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) – but neither the U.S. nor any other delegation objected when given the opportunity to do so, thus allowing Iran to get the seat “by acclamation.”

Iran will now serve on the CSW, a body dealing with gender equality and the advancement of women, for another four-year term, having already been a member since 2011.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power took to Twitter to express her views: “Yet again Iran unopposed & was ‘elected’ to Commission on Status of Women. Given record on women’s & human rights, this is an outrage.”

But Richard Grenell, who served as spokesman for four U.S. ambassadors to the U.N. during the George W. Bush administration…

The NRA calls for a universal concealed carry permit

Brittius:

    Editor Note: I oppose “permits” of any sort, and favor Constitutional Carry. NRA should never be hinting towards any type of regulatory requirements that infringe on the twenty-seven words of 2A, unless allegations of NRA seeking to become a government regulatory agency are true. Then, they are a scam.

 Now that concealed carry is permitted in all 50 states the NRA is calling for what would amount to a universal concealed carry permit which would make it easier for a lawful gun owner to carry his or her weapons from state to state.

  Here is more:

With concealed weapons now legal in all 50 states, the National Rifle Association’s focus at this week’s annual meeting is less about enacting additional state protections than on making sure the permits already issued still apply when the gun owners travel across the country.

The nation’s largest gun-rights group, which officially opens its meeting of about 70,000 people Friday in Indianapolis, wants Congress to require that concealed weapons permits issued in one state be recognized everywhere, even when the local requirements differ. Advocates say the effort would eliminate a patchwork of state-specific regulations that lead to carriers unwittingly violating the law when…
