"Not so fast, dear libertarian friends and fellow fans of guns. Steve Lee is actually a proponent of government-defined gun control, as long as he can have his guns as 'toys' to blow up cars. ..."

"'Gun control,' as forcible citizen disarmament is generally referred to, owes its American origins to racism. ..."

"Such laws were, of course, quite a boon to the KKK, who could have more confidence in their victims' inability to fight back effectively. Conversely, of course, this kind of law was very bad news for blacks in the South, which is why the Reconstruction Era Fourteenth Amendment was intended to protect Second Amendment rights against restrictive state and local laws ..." ...

"On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States granted a motion by the National Rifle Association for a portion of the 60 minutes allotted to oral argument in the case of McDonald v. City of Chicago. While it might seem unremarkable for the Court to allot argument on an important gun rights case to the dominant gun rights organization, the ruling highlights longstanding antipathy between the NRA and Alan Gura, the lawyer who won the landmark gun rights case Heller v. D.C. and is now arguing McDonald."

"In Heller, Gura and many others felt the NRA tried to torpedo the case ..." ...

"The question is whether the NRA, which butted into the present case against the wishes of Gura and his client, is doing so for sound tactical reasons, or as a means of 'marching to the head of the parade' by claiming success for efforts not of its doing." ...

"If passed as written, South Carolina gun owners who rely on H. 4022 and abide by South Carolina law will still be considered to be in violation of federal law. This means the federal government will still prosecute South Carolina gun owners who abide by South Carolina law. H. 4022 must be amended to better protect gun owners in South Carolina."

"George Morovich is a Republican candidate running for Texas Congressional District 25, currently held by Lloyd Doggett. If you want a Congressman to represent your right to keep and bear arms, this questionnaire will assist you in deciding if a candidate will represent you."

"Lloyd Doggett was endorsed by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence in 2008, which makes his position on gun rights very clear. The Brady Campaign has shown time and again that their idea of 'sensible gun laws' translates into confiscation."

"Brady also considers the states with the most gun control the 'best' states in the union, even though these states average higher violent crime and murder rates." ...

"More than half of South Dakota's state lawmakers are sponsoring a bill that would exempt domestic manufacturers of firearms and ammunition from federal regulations."

"South Dakota is one of about 20 states nationwide considering such legislation. The genesis for the idea comes from Montana, which passed an identical bill last year, setting the stage for a legal battle with the federal government."

ME: Statehouse gun ban is reasonable

"Banning guns and other deadly weapons from the New Hampshire Statehouse is not something that should be distracting the Legislature from doing its real business — producing laws and budgets that will be to the benefit of the people of the state."

"Such a ban was reinstated recently by a House committee for safety reasons, but the decision was reversed, and now a legislator is likely to file a bill that will require the entire Legislature to debate the issue."

"This should not be necessary; a gun ban is a reasonable policy."

"According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, more than 45 states have varying degrees of weapons restrictions at statehouses and government buildings." ...

Submitter's Note: In MN the "restriction" consists of a requirement to write a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety telling him you will be carrying a gun to the Capitol.

"'This is an especially tragic case because Mr. Valentine was a very promising officer,' said U.S. Dist. Judge Samuel Mays. 'He was a model narcotics officer, but then he himself was engaging in steroid use. This was an aberration for Mr. Valentine.'" ...
