Two stories of burning, which meet our approval.

Former Obama groupie burns her 2008 campaign T-shirt; tells off ‘criminal-in-chief’
Saying she was once among President Obama‘s “most hysterical supporters,” Carey Wedler wants the world to know she has come to see the president in a different light these past five years.
Wedler, who now calls Obama “the criminal-in-chief,” posted a video Thursday on her Youtube channel titled, “Why I’m burning my last bridge with Obama.” In the video, [HERE] she is seen burning an Obama t-shirt she wore on the night he was first elected in 2008.

Gun rights group hosts rally, seminar
WILTON >> Hundreds of gun rights advocates turned out for a meeting here Sunday that was in equal parts a rally against Gov. Andrew Cuomo and a teach-in on how to not comply with his SAFE Act assault weapons registration law.
The event, put on by the NY2A Grassroots Coalition, ended with a show of civil disobedience as dozens of attendees filed out of the Saratoga Springs Elks Lodge to burn NYS Police Assault Weapons Registration forms in a barbeque grill set up for the purpose.
“We are demonstrating to New York state that we will not be registering our firearms with the state,” one protester said, tending the fire. “We refuse to register.”
“The registration deadline is approaching, April 15, and we’re basically giving people information as to what their options are relative to registration and we’re also encouraging them to get more active in the political process so we can vote out the people who voted for the SAFE Act,” said Lisa Donovan of Ballston, Saratoga County, one of the organizers of Sunday’s event.
“We’re basically explaining to people once they register, that gun is no longer theirs,” she said. “It’s a matter of time as to when the state will take it … It will be upon their death or when they change the law and decide to confiscate the guns that have been registered.”
“A gun that’s been registered can’t be sold or anything so it really is no longer yours at that point, so there are legal options for not registering,” she said, including modifying the weapon to meet the requirements of the law that Cuomo and the Legislature passed on the opening day of the 2013 session.
