"'I'm going to put the Enemies Trilogy on a Kindle 'free run' on Wednesday, January 15th,' Bracken announced to followers on Facebook. 'The next day I'll free run my other two books. Pass the word to avid readers who might be short of bucks currently.'" ...

"In an effort to frighten the public into supporting her bill to ban so-called 'assault weapons,' U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has gone to some trouble to publicize the 'threat' posed by 'bump fire' rifle stocks like the Fostech Outdoors 'Bumpski,' and others. To hear Feinstein tell it, these stocks essentially convert semi-automatic firearms into 'machine guns,' but without changing their legal status under current federal law--a situation she intends to change. As she told the Associated Press:" ...
 

Defending Second Amendment Based Livelihood: Gun Dealers Need to "Wake Up"

"'Retailers Need to Wake Up,' Director of Government Relations and State Affairs at [NSSF] Jake McGuigan said during a grassroots seminar at the 2014 SHOT Show Tuesday morning. 'It’s not political, it’s our livelihood and our constitutional right.'"

"Anti-gun politicians throughout the country have done everything possible over the past two years, and over the past four decades, to turn law abiding citizens into criminals. In 2012, we saw New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sign the S.A.F.E. Act in the middle of the night, limiting law abiding gun owners to just seven rounds ... In Colorado, we saw legislators put the cap on magazines at 15 rounds, forcing Magpul and it’s more than 200 employees out of the state to Texas. " ...

"Like most things made in Germany, the Merkel RX Helix is an engineering marvel. The Merkel is the newest straight pull bolt action rifle on the market. What sets it apart from the crowd is the fact that the action uses cams to reduce the length of travel. As an example, for a .300 Win Mag you only need to pull the handle back 2.5 inches to get the bolt to move 4.5 inches. I was really impressed how smooth and effortless it was to chamber and extract a round from the rifle. This is undoubtedly the fastest bolt action rifle I have ever handled, and second place finisher is not really close . . ." ...

"It’s a brave new world out there. Things are changing, and new manufacturing process are turning things that we would normally scoff at into reality. One of those new products is polymer cased ammunition, replacing the expensive brass cases with cheap plastic and saving not only a ton of weight but also rare(ish) metals. PCP Ammunition is the first to market with a prototype polymer ammunition, running at the moment in .308 Winchester only. We were handed a box to test out, and so I headed to the range with chronograph in tow to find out if the ammo is any good." ...

"I expected that after Dec. 14, 2012 we would be on a faster path towards gun safety. It appears that we have gone backwards -- starting with our Congress not passing an innocuous background gun check law."

"This was followed by an unsympathetic, unempathetic, and actually apathetic group of gun devotees, who had no respect for the hundreds, if not thousands, of relatives and friends of the Sandy Hook tragedy when they went into a coffee shop with their guns on display."

"And then the audacity, and stupidity, of the Second Amendment Foundation founder, Alan Gottlieb, to declare Dec. 14 as 'Guns Save Lives Day.' He could have chosen a different date in May ... Mr. Gottlieb: Guns don't save lives -- People save lives!" ...
 

NY: SAFE Act’s goal is to curtail violence

"It’s too bad columnist Fred LeBrun allows his apparent dislike of Gov. Andrew Cuomo to affect his writing about the NY SAFE Act (“Gun rights folks in a good place,” Jan. 5)."

"Instead of giving credit to the governor for making an effort to reduce gun violence, he accuses him of smuggling the SAFE Act through the Legislature and for proposing it solely for political gain. He claims the vast majority of upstate New Yorkers oppose the act." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: The only thing "reducing violence" has to do with the SAFE Act is to be the pretext used for pushing through just a few more incremental changes aimed at discouraging people from owning guns (or turning them into felons so they can't own them!).

"Zumbo, I'm sure you'll recall, lost everything after questioning whether ARs were suitable for hunting. Heresy, that and woefully inaccurate." ...

"Zumbo's fall from grace was swift. He was stripped of his column, television appearances, blog and social media. His name became synonymous with 'stepping in it' - being Zumbo-ed."

"Rather than lashing out at the firearms industry, like Dick Metcalf has been doing ... Zumbo educated himself about ARs. He realized he made a serious error, and with honesty, transparency and humility sought to make things right, the right way." ...

"In Supreme Court rulings in recent years, gun-control laws have been defeated, but via precarious 5-4 votes. That means our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms hinges on a single vote. It means a constitutional right could be taken away by a liberal judge who thinks only certain parts of the Constitution are relevant."

"Grief is a process: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance. The Chicago Tribune, for example, is slowly coming to terms with the fact that Illinois residents will soon be able to exercise their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. They are at the beginning of their journey, moving out of denial. Permit to carry gun no license to shoot, the headline proclaims. “This spring, law-abiding residents of Illinois will be able to walk the streets with a loaded gun,” the lead announces with bated breath. 'But those who decide to carry concealed weapons will have to grapple with a tough question: When is it appropriate to pull the trigger? ..." ...

... "We as citizens are expected to follow all laws and rules. It is reasonable for the citizens to expect the government to also follow the rules."

"There is a reason criminals do not follow the rules. By not following the rules, you get away with something that you should not do. This allows individuals to further their agenda, criminal or political."

"The New York State Legislature saw fit to not follow the rules in passing the oppressive SAFE Act. The excuse for using the 'message of necessity' to pass this law in the middle of the night had nothing to do with the so-called purchase of a particular device. The purpose was to deny citizen their right to participate in the legislative process." ...

"Multnomah County Republicans are bringing back a controversial raffle for an AR-15 rifle, but what some find controversial is who the group says they are celebrating." ...

"The group's press release says they are 'raffling the rifle off to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln - who were both two great Republicans who demonstrated leadership and courage.'"

"But some people we spoke with say connecting two men that were killed by guns is insensitive." ...

"'We will adhere to the federal court’s ruling to protect the taxpayers of Livingston County from civil liabilities and lawsuits,' he said." ...

"Maryland politicians take away your right to protect yourself and your family and The Baltimore Sun blames you:"

"In an act of incredible editorial hubris, the Baltimore Sun opined that the rush to purchase firearms in anticipation of Maryland’s overly restrictive and reactionary firearm law, which led to some unauthorized purchases, was the fault of those fighting to preserve our Second Amendment rights."

"Their painful and strained logic is that the new law caused 'misplaced concern' and the citizen backlash caused Marylanders to flood to firearm outlets to acquire firearms and the 'bottleneck' of paperwork 'stymied' the police."

"So, let me get this straight:" ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's. — Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp
