Cam’s Corner: Compromise

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” It’s one of the best lines in the classic movie “The Princess Bride,” but it’s also what immediately comes to mind every time I read an anti-gun opinion piece that attempts to mask its gun control agenda under the banner of “compromise.” Rarely do these pieces ever offer any sort of real compromise on the part of the anti-gun activists.

Much has changed in the 60 years since Clyde Blamberg’s late father, also named Clyde, opened Clyde’s Sport Shop in Lansdowne, selling worms to fishermen from a roadside stand before building a small store. There are not as many “hard-core fishermen,” said Blamberg, who took over the shop alongside his brother William “Bill” Blamberg after their father’s death in the 1980s. Hunting grounds are diminishing, and “there’s not as many people getting outside as we would like,” he said.

From lawmakers to gun instructors, the state's new enhanced carry rules fired up a lot of people at the Arkansas state capitol Tuesday. A legislative committee reviewed the draft rules that Arkansas State Police crafted for the enhancement to a concealed carry permit holder's license. Under the rules, the program will give guidance to the state's 1,000 instructors. They will then independently develop training courses for people wanting an enhanced carry permit, which will include about six hours in the classroom and two at the gun range.

An exciting weekend at AAR Crossbreed Holster Studios! First, the ATL area experienced a historic snowstorm dropping nearly a foot of snow in the AAR Crossbreed Holster Studio vicinity causing power and internet outages for days.

This allowed Mark to broadcast from the original AAR Studio A from Salem Radio Network’s AM 920 The Answer studios. Mark welcomed newest affiliate WRCN Long Island News 103.9 FM. Problem was, WRCN was unable to alleviate technical issues to bring the program to listeners when scheduled thereby moving the opening AAR NYC area broadcast to this Sunday.

The Seattle-based Alliance for Gun Responsibility, the well-financed gun prohibition lobbying group, has thrust itself into Tuesday’s special senate election in Alabama via an email fund-raising effort that declares in its subject line, “They’re trying to buy an election.”

The complaint is about money apparently being spent by the National Rifle Association in the effort to elect Judge Roy Moore to fill the Senate seat left vacant by Jeff Sessions’ appointment as U.S. Attorney General.

In his ongoing efforts to preserve our Second Amendment rights, Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today reminded pistol permit holders to recertify their permits by Jan. 31 in order to prevent them from becoming invalid. If your pistol permit was issued before Jan.15, 2013, you must recertify your permit before Jan. 31. If your permit was issued on or prior Jan. 15, 2013, the deadline is five years after the date the permit was issued.

Residents on Monday sparred with each other over a proposal to restrict the discharge of firearms in certain areas in unincorporated Butts County. The plan was ultimately voted down, but not before residents supportive of and opposed to the restrictions argued their sides to the Butts County Board of Commissioners. An angry Butts County Sheriff Gary Long also castigated the board for not acting to give him the legal tools to resolve what he sees as a safety issue in some neighborhoods.

The attack, which left 20 children and six educators dead, as well as the gunman and his mother, shook the country, leading to widespread calls for reformed gun laws. Half a decade later, proponents and opponents of gun control are still fiercely debating.

The Denver Police Department is investigating the possible actions of a detective who may have left his police department car unlocked with two guns and at least one police badge inside -- all of which were stolen over the weekend. Denver police spokesman Doug Schepman would not name the officer -- who is also considered a victim of a burglary. 9Wants to Know is not naming the officer at this time since he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He’s a veteran officer who has been on the force in 1977.

The defeat of Republican candidate Roy Moore in the special Alabama race for U.S. Senator is being followed by widespread analyses from conservative and liberal commentators, all putting their spin on the election result and perhaps the best of these after-action reports appears in The Hill.

That longtime Capitol Hill news organ pegs it down pretty well, acknowledging that one of the winners in Moore’s loss is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Grassroots conservatives dislike McConnell, who represents too much of what is wrong in Congress, in their eyes.

Do Money, Social Status Woes Fuel the U.S. Gun Culture?

The U.S. has more guns per person than any other country, a ranking that is unlikely to drop even in the wake of the latest high-casualty mass shootings. Why are guns so pervasive here when they take so many lives (more than 36,000 in 2015)? Which Americans are the most strongly tied to their guns—and why? Baylor University sociologists F. Carson Mencken and Paul Froese tackled these questions in a study published last month in Social Problems. They surveyed 577 gun owners about how their guns make them feel, creating a “gun empowerment scale” designed to measure owners’ moral and emotional attachment to their weapons.

Westport has seen a major uptick in gun violence this year. According to stats collected by the Westport Regional Business League, there were 16 gun-related weapons offenses in the district in 2016. In 2017, there were 65 — and that's only through Oct. 31. A Missouri law that took effect in January allows people to carry guns without a permit in nearly every public space, so there’s not much business owners or police can do to keep guns out.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The writings of scholars who have written on the subject are virtually united on the point that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, not simply the state national guards. — PROFESSOR GLENN HARLAN REYNOLDS
