“'Katy Perry and Russell Brand's Bodyguards Allegedly Assaulting Paparazzi in India,' AceShowBiz reported a few years back. Per the report, the then-couple’s personal goon squad left photographers stranded in a jungle safari tiger park by taking their car keys, smashing a camera, smashing one’s glasses, and beating them up, leaving one with a cut arm and another with 'a bleeding wound on his head.'”

... "I do not have a feel for who the good guys and the bad guys are in Ukraine, but I do know this. Americans, instead of having one gun per hundred people, have an estimated one gun per person. This very fact provides a chilling influence on would-be despots, and perhaps explains why many in government today pursue policies of citizen disarmament. Connecticut has joined the fray with its new gun registration law. ..." ...

"Attempts to justify oppressive gun laws are always both morally and intellectually bankrupt, but every once in a while one encounters an argument for 'gun control' that is at the very least creative. Creatively stupid, perhaps, but creative nonetheless. An editorial that appeared Saturday in Op Ed News is an excellent case in point. 'Progressive' Patrick Walker, in a piece he titled 'Right-Wing Gun Nuts€: Our Tame Second Amendment Lapdogs,' describes what he apparently believes would be a legitimate and socially desirable exercise of the Second Amendment:" ...

"A quick look at the Wikipedia entry for the National Rifle Association (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Rifle_Association) reveals that the NRA is a nonprofit organization with more than 5 million members. Originally chartered to enhance rifle marksmanship after the American Civil War, our main efforts continue to be in the areas of firearms education with an emphasis on safety."

"Gun control advocates remind me of the Talking Heads’ song Crosseyed and Painless. They want the facts to show that guns are killing children in droves. But facts don’t do what they want them to. In 2010, 208 children died from firearms-related causes. Tragic yes, but not the kind of 'gun violence' pandemic that convinces Americans to abandon their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. To amp-up the anti-gun rhetoric, gun control advocates count teenagers as 'children.' Three words for that protocol: teenage gang bangers. So when you read the usatoday.com headline Twenty young people a day hospitalized for gun injuries you know the FUD is strong. Here’s a taste . . ." ...

"At the core of Senator Dahm's bill, which he's calling the 'Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act', is the notion that firearms should be more easily attainable, an idea that stands in direct contrast to the beliefs of the host." ...

"Today I decided to post a rather inflammatory message on the book of faces to see what sort of response I got. I know I have quite a few conservative nuts as friends because I, unfortunately, live in a very conservative area. TW: Gun Violence Discussion"

"ME: On Saturday, a 21-year old mother went into her crappy mall job trying to make a few bucks. As she lay on the ground, bleeding to death, her last thoughts were most likely about her 2-year old daughter she would never see again. All because the gun laws in this country are borked and some psychopath legally purchased a weapon and decided to harm people with it." ...

"Imagine if every bullet could be traced back to the gun it was fired from and the person who owned it. Some say that would help law enforcement solve crimes, but not everyone agrees."

"Every time a trigger is pulled and bullet casings fall, microstamping could engrave a microscopic marking at the tip of a firing pin. Gun expert Gary Belson says the new technology won't help solve crimes."

"'A person could sell his gun and the ammo that's in his name if you get my drift, because of the stamp type thing and a person uses that in the wrong way or somebody steals his gun - guess whose going to get charged with a crime?' said Belson." ...

"'It's regrettable, but I think it's a case where a lot of extremists have taken over the Republican Party and one of their complaints about me was that I support Obamacare. That's unethical to say that,' McCain told the site." ...

"The rifle is a semiautomatic AR-15. It can fire thirty shots in just a few seconds. 'Commonly called an assault rifle,' said Patrick O'Neal, of Range, Guns and Safes of Doraville. 'I call it a sport rifle.'"

"And it's the weapon Congressman Paul Broun (R-Georgia) chose to give away as part of an effort to promote his GOP candidacy for the U.S. Senate."

"'The gun we're giving away is a reflection of what this president wants to do and that's take firearms away from individual citizens,' Broun said Monday following a candidates forum in downtown Atlanta." ...

"Our intrepid public servants believe they have identified the No. 1 issue that has vexed 'We the Unwashed' for far too long in Georgia: Being allowed to bring guns to church. Guns for God."

"The bad news is that most of us don’t believe being allowed to bring concealed weapons to church is the No. 1 issue vexing us right now. ... That doesn’t seem to matter to the boys and girls under the Gold Dome. They are determined to make Guns for God a reality to appease the powerful gun lobby." ...

"The Legislature in 2009 gave city and county governments the ability to opt out of a new law that allowed people with handgun carry permits to be armed in public parks, playgrounds and sports fields."

"The story was also reported by KTAR in Arizona. Giffords will be accompanied by husband Mark Kelly, a retired astronaut. Giffords was seriously wounded in January 2011 at a shooting in Tucson in which six other people were killed and a dozen more were hit when gunman Jared Lee Loughner opened fire. Loughner, who had a history of mental problems, passed a background check when he purchased the pistol he used in the attack." ...

"Actually, there already has been a war within. That war took place in Athens, (McMinn County) Tenn., Aug. 1-2, 1946. The gunbattle between the sheriff’s office and a number of combat-hardened World War II vets was the result of years of voter fraud and malfeasance of office perpetuated by the sheriff and his cronies." ...

"The Second Amendment states, 'The right of our people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.' When we set other amendments in such high regards like our freedom of speech granted in the first and the right to remain silent stated in the fifth. Why should we not consider the second amendment with equal authority? All of these other amendments were written at the same time years ago, and even though times have changed we should still consider the words of the founders of our country with a lot of respect."

"At the beginning of the year, this column noted sadly that some Connecticut gun owners had spent the waning days of 2013 'rushing,' 'scrambling,' and enduring long lines in the bitter cold, to register their so-called 'assault weapons' and 'high capacity' magazines (defined by gun ban zealots as having a capacity of 11 or more rounds), in compliance with the state law requiring their registration by the end of the year. Despite the inescapable evidence that the purpose of registration is to enable confiscation, thousands of gun owners submitted ..."

"After Connecticut enacted one of the most draconian gun-control regimes in America, official estimates suggest that the overwhelming majority of the citizens targeted by the latest assault on gun rights failed to comply. Indeed, analysts say it appears that most people largely ignored the new statute, which purports to ban numerous non-registered 'assault' weapons and standard-capacity magazines. Now, despite resistance by the governor, state lawmakers are reportedly 'scrambling' to come up with a possible amnesty plan allowing gun owners to register past the deadline." ...

"In response to several new attacks by politicians in Sacramento on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, the gun rights group California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees (CAL-FFL) has announced a new program that it says will make politicians think twice about their efforts to undermine the Constitution."

"According to CAL-FFL, their intention is to give away at least one gun for every gun control bill passed by the California Legislature in 2014."

"'We're making this promise to those elected officials who attack our fundamental rights,' said Brandon Combs, the group's president. 'Your actions will have consequences.'" ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
