Bigotry of a different stripe

The mainstream media brings us yet another example of how anti-self-defense folks rely on bigotry, feelings and emotions over diversity, science and substance with the story of a University of Colorado staff member proudly displaying a “no guns” sign on his office door at a public university.

His bigotry (defined as “stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one’s own” by Collins) should be called out by freedom-loving Americans as offensive, as he’s demanding others forgo their civil rights based upon nothing more than his personal fears about card-carrying, good guy gun owners.

Sixty plus years ago, bigots like Bonetti posted signs that said, “No Negroes”.
 

Only police should have guns?

For many ardent proponents of strict gun control, the notion is strong that firearms – and especially handguns – should only be allowed for police and the military, perhaps with some strictly-regulated allowance for hunters and target shooters.

After all, they might suggest, because cops carry guns they are experts about all things related to firearms. The problem with the premise that only cops should have guns is that police are hired from the human race. They make mistakes, they have accidents and sometimes they are crime victims.

Social Media and Looting

During Hurricane Sandy, we learned a lot about what our fellow citizens are made of. We learned of their character and in some cases, their character defects.

There were many brave people serving those who were trapped and in need of help, there were also those who were preying on those who were trapped and needed help. The social media site Twitter was being used by some gang members and other scum that were making plans to go on a looting spree after the hurricane.

These people were making plans to loot homes and businesses directly after the storm. Most people cannot imagine planning to loot, steel or harm their fellow citizens immediately following a disaster but obviously we have some that look forward this kind of sick activity.

Looting in Brooklyn, N.Y. as Hurricane Sandy moved out underscores the importance of the right to keep and bear arms, especially in an emergency, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.

“A story in today’s Huffington Post tells about a pharmacy worker who could only watch as people started walking down the street robbing stores,” said SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. “But so many shopkeepers are defenseless to stop this, thanks to the anti-gun policies of Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Western Illinois University students passing through Horrabin Hall Tuesday may have noticed two tables — one covered in baked goods and the other displaying an assortment of candy and a stack of targets — flanking the door to the ROTC indoor firing range.
For $1 per target or $5 for 6 targets, WIU students, faculty and staff had the opportunity to participate in the WIU ROTC's annual Halloween Pumpkin Shoot. The targets, however, were not actual pumpkins, but Halloween-themed paper targets.

A plea to close the private gun sales loophole. Jeri Bonavia with the WAVE Action Fund said a glaring loophole in state gun laws make it all too easy to buy guns from private sellers, who do not – in fact, cannot – run background checks. “One of our top priorities for years has been to close that private sales market, and have all gun sales at least be completed by a licensed gun dealer,” Bonavia said. She said several states and numerous other countries have such a requirement in place.

As you have probably already heard, Open Carry went into effect today in the State of Oklahoma. I don’t intend to do a whole lot of OC, but I have been preparing for this. I’ve sold several OC specific rigs to other Okies in the last year.

I made a matched pair of ostrich, horse, and stingray paddle holsters for my Performance Center revolvers, and have a black belt with red stitching to match them. Jennifer got a new, red, metallic, patent leather holster to fit her FN with a CT Rail Master and a matching double magazine carrier and belt. She also got a black holster for the same setup with flat dark earth stitching to match her pistol. Today, I’m wearing my M&P45 in black basket weave with matching magazines on the off side.

She said 29 percent of guns used in crimes in Chicago were purchased legally in suburban Cook County.

I didn’t know that the guns are the source of the problem; silly me thought that people were.

MADISON (WSAU) Today is the first anniversary of Wisconsin’s concealed weapons law – and the state’s attorney general says it’s working as well as expected. About 138,500 state carry permits were granted in the first year – 13,000 more than what J-B Van Hollen predicted six months ago. Around 150,000 people have applied for concealed weapons licenses, and Van Hollen said many of the ones rejected were for clerical errors.

There were long delays at first in getting the applications processed. But the backlog has disappeared, and Van Hollen says the review process is now going smoothly.

In the wake of tragedy, state legislators put politics aside and passed a bill to strengthen criminal penalties for gun trafficking. The move came just weeks after Michael Joseph Henry was arrested for supplying the gun that was used to murder Officer Bradley Fox.

As mayors, we witness how violence devastates not only the victims of crime, but whole families and communities, and we commend the legislature for passing this bill. But it will take a concerted effort to crack down on gun violence, and we hope that leaders in Harrisburg will stay the course and continue to fight for common-sense bills that keep guns out of the wrong hands.

Pro-Gun New Hampshire General Counsel, attorney Evan Nappen, has won a significant court case involving concealed carry licensing in New Hampshire. His client was denied a NH non-resident carry license solely due to a 34 year old misdemeanor marijuana conviction received when he was 18 years old. The State was stubbornly enforcing their administrative rule (which, by the way, has no basis in law) that makes any misdemeanor conviction for drugs an automatic denial.
 

Chris Rock’s Gun Control Policy Goes Down in Chicago Area

The comedian Chris Rock used to include a bit in his stand up comedy act in response to calls for gun control. Rock’s comedic premise was that a better idea might be bullet control. “If a bullet cost $5,000, there would be no more innocent bystanders,” Rock quipped. While gun violence is no laughing matter, the top official in Illinois’ Cook County (which includes Chicago) had presented a plan that was somewhat akin to Rock’s idea of “bullet control:” a five-cent per-bullet tax.

As of yesterday, however, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle has abandoned the bullet tax, which, in some cases, would have exceeded the cost of a bullet itself.

The panel comes in the wake of the arrest of Neil Edwin Prescott, who allegedly told his boss over the phone in July, “I am a joker, I’m going to load my guns and blow everybody up,” after being fired from his job at a subcontractor of postage machine company Pitney Bowes.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some of the worst abuses of government force in recent years were precipitated by technical and victimless gun-law violations. For example, the BATF claimed that the Branch Davidians possessed machine guns without paying the required federal tax and filling in the proper registration forms. So a tax case worth less than $10,000 led to a 76-man helicopter, machine gun, and grenade assault on a home in which 2/3 of the occupants were women and children. — Dave Kopel and Dr. Michael S. Brown, Prohibition Fever, NationalReview.com
