Colorado enforcement dilemma shows exploitable weakness of anti-gun laws

... "And while the numbers of Coloradans transferring their property or ignoring the magazine ban is impossible to measure with accuracy, there’s reason to believe they are substantial -- just as are the numbers of gun owners who have refused to comply with infringements in California, Connecticut, Washington State and elsewhere. It’s part of a phenomenon I've been calling a 'new paradigm,' although in truth, disobedience in defense of freedom has been a time-honored practice among liberty-minded Americans since before the Republic -- as the example of Patriots at Lexington and Concord could not have made more clear." ...

"After the war, when my father finally escaped the Nazi labor camps, he returned to his village of Oradea. There was nothing for him. His brothers had survived, but the Nazis had murdered his parents in Dachau. Villagers had taken his home, as they had taken the property, homes and lands of Jews throughout Europe. There was no work. No future. I’m not sure how, but he joined a group of survivors smuggling Jewish orphans from Holland into Israel . . ." ...

"Today’s Boston Globe reports that the Massachusetts Turnpike billboard that carried anti-gun-rights messages for two decades is being replaced by a broader campaign, sponsored by Stop Handgun Violence, that has gun control signs at three dozen spots across the state."

"... This week’s message, launched today, reportedly says, 'We’re Not Anti-Gun. We’re Pro-Life. Massachusetts Gun Laws Save Lives.'"

"Contrast that gun control effort with one reported this morning by the [NSSF] ... The NSSF billboards, located in Richmond and Oakland, California, remind motorists about the organization’s 'Don’t Lie for the Other Guy' educational effort that shows the downside of straw purchases: Possible prison time." ...

... "If such information is not submitted to the NICS system, it won’t flag when someone is purchasing a firearm. No background check, 'universal' or otherwise, is going to catch such information if it isn’t there to be caught. This is particularly troubling because there was plenty of time between when Fryberg bought the handgun at a Cabela's store in Tulalip on Jan. 11, 2013 and when he picked it up on Jan. 23; ample time for authorities to conduct a check." ...

In fact, I don't know how many times one can read the Constitution and not see that it is not law per se enforced upon the people, but rather enforced upon the federal government, but there are still ignorant, useful idiots in the media that are called 'the press,' who still don't get it. Or perhaps they do get it, but they are just open communists who are seeking to remove the right to keep and bear arms by Americans. Such may just be the case with the Tampa Bay Times." ...

"Sure, .22 LR has been a bit hard to come by over the last couple of years. That’s a change from the norm, of course, where .22 LR was the choice for inexpensive practice. While owning dedicated .22 firearms is great — great for collecting, for fun, for plinking, hunting, and target shooting — .22 conversion kits are often the best option for legitimate practice. That is, for the purpose of gaining familiarity with a primary, centerfire firearm but doing so with inexpensive ammo. At the very pinnacle of the conversion kit game is CZ’s Kadet Adapter for CZ 75-based pistols. . ." ...

"Coyotes are fair game. People who terminate coyotes (with extreme, if stealthy prejudice) in open terrain tend to use rifles in the ever-popular .223 caliber. That said, a deer rifle will also git ‘er done. But when you’re hunting in thick timber or in the dead of night, a shotgun is your ballistic BFF.

"The [NRA], firearms manufacturers and gun rights bloggers frequently state (and assume) that in the 21st century, a new generation of female, minority and millennial gun-owners purchases, carries and uses firearms. This claim aligns the firearms industry and gun rights zealots with new demographic realities in the United States, which of course no longer favor the traditional rural, white, male base of the gun-owning population. Affirmations of demographic breadth also justify the - somewhat breathtaking - wave of concealed-carry and open-carry laws approved by state legislatures in recent years, explains the exponential growth curve for gun purchases in the last decade ..."

"Right now, Montana keeps our communities safe and promotes gun safety by requiring a permit to carry a loaded, concealed handgun in public. To get a permit, an applicant must be at least 18 years old, pass a criminal background check, and prove he/she has been through some sort of firearms training."

"There is a bill pending in Congress that would override these carefully considered public safety standards and force our state to recognize concealed carry permits from every other state -- including states that issue permits to people with no firearms training at all. Federally imposed concealed carry is a dangerous proposal that is bad for Montana, and I encourage you to join me in asking senators Tester and Daines to oppose it." ...

"We’ve been deriding the ShotSpotter gunshot detection system for years. It’s a hugely expensive technological 'fix' that only fixes politicians' need to be seen to be 'doing something' about 'gun violence.' Which is why you’ll find it in urban areas where 'strict' gun control does even less to reduce firearms-related crime. The number of stories we’ve encountered where ShotSpotter led to the apprehension of a criminal is precisely zero. Last year, Oakland pulled the plug on the system, which cost the city – wait for it – $264k per year. And here’s an excellent example of ShotSpotter follies . . ." ...

"I am writing this because I am tired of lies and misinformation being spread by our bevy of "anti-gun violence" groups in Connecticut. At one time I believed them to be ignorant, but I now know better. So, I would like to dissect and discredit these statements point by point."

"Mr. Jonathan Perloe (March 26 op-ed, 'Standing ground on tough new gun laws') points out that '90 percent of legislators who voted in favor (of SB1160, the 2013 Connecticut gun law)' were re-elected. Most of those legislators ran unopposed. Another way to look at it was of the large 12-seat gain by the GOP, 11 of those seats were replacements of legislators who voted for SB 1160.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right. [Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846)]
