Sen. Moran’s bill to protect 2A from U.N. hailed by CCRKBA

"Kansas Senator Jerry Moran’s newly-introduced legislation to protect Second Amendment rights from a proposed United Nations small arms treaty is an idea that needs to be passed quickly, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today."

"Sen. Moran’s proposed Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S. 2205, is similar to legislation introduced in the House by Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh in December. Like the Walsh bill, Sen. Moran’s measure would prohibit the Obama administration from attempting to influence Arms Trade Treaty negotiations that might restrict the Second Amendment rights of U.S. citizens." ...

"Passed by the House as H.R. 822 and pending in the Senate ... is legislation which would require each state that issues pistol carry licenses to recognize those issued by other states. The debate over this issue has created a strange situation -- committed leftists who believe that Congress can mandate that the several states serve broccoli in school lunches, and who have no problem with federal bureaucrats controlling intrastate toilet design are suddenly 'state's rights' purists. They now utter sound bite phrases such as '... you can't make the states recognize gun rights if they don't want to…' Allied with these folks are some real defenders of liberty, who believe that Federal compulsion of the states for any purpose is wrong."

"If Steven Gray is going to attack gun rights in the United States and is calling upon President Obama to veto S. 2188 if it ever gets to his desk, as a journalist he has the ethical responsibility to get his facts right.

"There’s nothing in this world worse than the stock AR-15 trigger you find on most guns. If you were specifically designing a trigger to be the most terrible thing ever created, you still couldn’t do as bad of a job as most stock triggers. That’s the reason the first upgrade I always suggest people make is swapping out the trigger for something better, but the cost of a five star trigger can often be prohibitive.

"The Steyr AUG is a classic military style, select-fire rifle that has seen a huge amount of popularity around the world for decades. Steyr also offers a civilian semi-auto version of the AUG and the MSAR XM17 E4, although similar, is not it. However, for most of us it would be understandable to make the mistake in thinking that it was."

"The company that makes it, Microtech Small Arms Research, was a short-lived subsidiary of the well-regarded Microtech Knives. Early this century they set out to develop and market a line of Steyr AUG clones. Their initial offering was in the standard 5.56 NATO cartridge ... A friend of mine got one chambered in 7.62x39mm ... This was the gun I shot and the basis for this review." ...

"I have been involved in tactical and self-defense handgun training for over three decades now and over the years I’ve heard more than a few colleagues mention that police officers and military personnel who take damage to their dominant (a.k.a. shooting) hand or arm will likely continue to use their injured appendage throughout the rest of the gunfight, almost as if they don’t realize they’ve taken a hit. To me, this phenomenon actually makes a lot of scientific sense but more significantly it underlines the importance for shooters to practice one hand shooting techniques with both their dominant and off-hands. We’re going to look at three single handed shooting techniques you should practice (and master)." ...

"For some Americans, happiness isn’t a warm gun but a nearby gun, one snugly holstered to the hip like a gunfighter’s. Since 2004, the most vocal proponents of expanding Second Amendment laws to encourage Americans to carry loaded sidearms in public are the devoted members of the 'Open Carry' movement—an inchoate mass numbering in the tens of thousands, according to their website. The group consists of armed citizens who go about their business in public with unconcealed weapons attached to their belts wherever possible. They believe that more guns will lead to less crime." ...

"The New York Times notes the debate about 'stand your ground' self-defense laws triggered by the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin ..."

"Dan Gross, the president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, says that his organization tracks laws in 21 states that extend the self-defense doctrine beyond the home. The usual label for such laws—'stand your ground'—is politically charged, he said, suggesting that a more apt label would be 'Shoot first, ask questions later.'"

"Because that description is not politically charged? Even if it turns out that George Zimmerman ... shot Martin ... without justification, that does not necessarily mean Floridians were better off with a narrower definition of self-defense." ...

But that question got sidelined Monday as some judges focused on a point that could conceivably resolve the case without the court delving into the weighty constitutional issues." ...
