... "What? You think we weren't paying attention to the central lesson of the 20th Century?"

"You may build the camps, we will not go."

"Try to put us in them by force, and we will kill you."

"Try to fill them with political prisoners, and those of us you have not snared will break the wire, shoot the guards, slit the throats of the commanders, burn down the businesses of those who collaborate with tyranny to support them and blow up the rails, roads and bridges leading to them."

"We are not 'good Germans.' We will not acquiesce in our own enslavement."

"Build the camps if it pleases you. Use them for tyranny, and WATCH WHAT HAPPENS." ...

Oh, boy, that's what the GOP calls "not smooth sailing"? They held out for exactly a week. To call them "cheese-eating surrender monkeys" is an insult to honest cheese-eating surrender monkeys everywhere, even the French ones. I told you it was "puppet theater."

... "People of honest character have no problem with the private ownership of firearms by honest citizens. The disarming of the American populace is an act that is/has been initiated and endorsed by criminals and tyrants and supported by the ignorant, the cowardly, and educated fools. Americans in large numbers continue to elect the criminals and tyrants and provide their hard-earned tax money to indoctrinate the ignorant and educated fools in our public schools and universities."

"The majority who claim to love the 2A, continue to support criminals and tyrants, even when presented the alternative of liberty loving constitutionalists such as Ron Paul. Supporting a 'winner' continues to be more important to them than liberty ..." ...

"In true Nazi form, Illinois congressman Bobby Rush ... introduced a bill on the first day of the 111th Congress that shows what we can expect. If we don't defeat this bill, and others expected to follow it, gun owners will lose guns and the industry will suffer harm beyond description."

"Under HR 45, if you can't pass a complex test written by the U.S. Attorney General, pay the tax, give up fingerprints and a biometric-capable photo of yourself ... every gun you own will become contraband and subject to confiscation, while you stand trial before imprisonment. You'd think Bobby, a former black panther, would know better."

"Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) wants to...wait, let Bill Thompson of Ocala.com tell it:"

"Stearns goes on offensive to push concealed-weapons law"

"Nice choice of words. 'Push' is what they do with drugs. And defending yourself becomes 'offensive.'"

"... Have your emotional buttons been sufficiently pushed yet?"

"Here's what Stearns wants:"

"Our legislation proposes a federal law that would entitle any person with a valid state-issued concealed carry permit to carry in any other state ..." ...

"Seems pretty tepid to me. ..."

"Still, I'm sure most permit holders will consider this an incremental improvement ..."

"Which naturally means the Brady Campaign is going to go all hysterical over it ..." ...
 

Ammunition bans, like other gun control laws, promise to be as ineffective as most prohibitions

"Hobbled by the Supreme Court decision in D.C. v. Heller, recognizing that individuals have a constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, gun control advocates are roaming the land with virtual lightbulbs over their heads. 'Ah ha,' they say. You can have your guns, but we'll control your ammunition. Well, they're not the first to think of the idea, and they won't be the first to discover that 'banning' isn't synonymous with 'eliminating.'"

"California already has a law requiring firearms to include 'microstamping' technology -- basically, firing pins that imprint traceable information on fired cases. The Brady Campaign wants to turn that into a national mandate ..." ...

"In their recent publication, Guns & the 2008 Elections: Common Sense Gun Laws Won, the NRA Lost, & What It Means, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence declared that the 2008 federal elections were a victory for gun control:"
"The 2008 elections demonstrated – not for the first time – that voters support candidates who favor strong gun laws and reject the gun lobby’s extremist agenda." …
"To determine the veracity of Brady's claims, election results from the House of Representatives will be examined here because the larger number of election contests (435) gives a more accurate picture of the electorate's view of the 2008 election cycle." ...

"Despite Americans across the country voting with their wallets and causing one of the largest spikes in gun sales in recent memory as a silent protest against the threat of new anti-gun measures by the Obama administration, the assault on those gun freedoms is gathering momentum."

"With groups like the Brady Campaign calling for new gun control laws, such as renewing the 'Assault Weapons Ban' and making it permanent, some liberal lawmakers are testing the limits to see what they can get away with under the new administration."

"One such measure is an attempt to circumvent a gun ban by making ammunition inaccessible. ..." ...

Rev. Whitley's 'bullet' bill is not just for Durham

"Like the hapless obsessive played by Bill Murray in that classic comedy 'What About Bob?', Reverend Melvin Whitley's homegrown version of 'BOB' (in this case, 'Bullet Ownership Bill') just won't go away. (1)"

"Having agitated for 'BOB' for two-plus years, the ever-sincere Rev. Whitley recently assured the Durham City Council that, 'This is not gun control … [t]his is gun safety.' By requiring buyers of ammunition statewide to first get permits from sheriffs, the reverend pledges it will prohibit sales to 'felons, drug addicts, mental patients, juvenile delinquents, the mentally retarded and illegal aliens.' (2) This, he says, will close 'loopholes' in existing gun laws." ...

"On January 26, 2009 Democratic Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds, one eye on the Governor's mansion, and the other eye on the TV cameras, cast the deciding committee vote to advance a bill to ban private gun sales at gun shows in Virginia. But first Deeds ensured the success of the bill by amending it to exempt both antique firearms and concealed handgun permit holders. See the bill and the amendments."

"There is of course, no gun show 'loophole' to close, just freedom on the chopping block once again." ...
 

Nationwide concealed carry, Part II: More guns on the street, or more of our own authority?

"Is it smart to stop a crime in progress when police will not arrive in time? It is if the target is you and you have no choice. As with aging, consider the alternative. Millions of Americans suffer at the hands of criminals purely because they do not resist. Home invasions are in the increase, and so are abductions. Understand that much of the violent crime we are talking about are not squabbles over who did what to whom, some of which is best left to civil courts, but purely criminal acts such as robberies, sexual assaults, kidnapings, beatings and other aggression." ...

"Politics can be frustrating and maddening, but it can also be interesting and ironical."

"Take, for example, the recent political revelation that the [NRA] agrees with President Obama ..."

"We've probably all heard about New York Democratic Governor David Patterson picking upstate Democratic Congresswoman Kristen Gillibrand to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Senator Hillary Clinton when she accepted a new role as Secretary of State in the Obama Administration.

"The South Dakota Board of Regents should continue to regulate firearms on public university campuses, a legislative committee said."

"The Senate State Affairs Committee voted 5-4 against SB82, a bill that would have made it illegal for a campus to restrict a student's right to have a firearm. The bill would have barred campus officials from expelling or disciplining a student who had a firearm." ...

"Supporters of the bill say 18-year-olds on campus should have the same constitutional right to carry weapons as other South Dakota adults."

"Given the historically anti-gun bent of New York's predominately Democratic congressional delegation and the heavyweight names that were being bandied about as possible replacements for the senatorial seat formerly occupied by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Gov. David Paterson's decision to appoint Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand to serve as the state's junior Senator seems almost surreal. Word of the appointment spread faster than a peak-of-the-season brush fire. Gun owners rejoiced."

"And if gun owners are thinking that Christmas has returned, they also have to be thinking that Rep. Carolyn McCarthy of Long Island is the Grinch who is trying to steal it." ...

"When a township resident says they felt a 'bullet whizzing by their head' during deer hunting season, the police department takes note."

"Such complaints from people who live in a narrow band of Duluth Township — between Highway 61 and the lakeshore — are prompting officials to take a close look at the township's firearms laws." ...

"The township can't ban hunting in the area, but it can restrict gun use if residents decide that would be the best way to address the issue, said Supervisor Dave Mount."

"'We want to have the citizens help us craft a good path forward, even if that path is doing nothing,' Mount said. 'We're in brainstorming mode.'" ...

"Today Senator Hanger's Restaurant Ban Repeal bill, SB 1035, cleared the Senate Courts of Justice committee by 9 to 6."

"The notification requirement was strengthened by clarifying whom to notify and defining a penalty if there is no notification." ...

"The bill says that the CHP holder cannot drink while carrying concealed in a restaurant that is licensed to serve alcoholic beverages. He must also notify the on-duty ABC manager at the restaurant that he is carrying concealed. Failure to do so is a Class 3 misdemeanor (a fine/but no jail, if convicted)."

"While VCDL is not thrilled with the notification requirement in this bill, the bill is still a step forward. No ground is lost, only gained." ...

"According to Strong, with Jamaica's high propensity for violence, the move could backfire with devastating results."

"'In the context of the Jamaican experience, the right for everybody to own a gun could have profound consequences. Quite often attacks on licensed firearm holders and the police are to get the guns,' Strong told the Observer."

"Permits to carry concealed weapons are up as much as 90 percent in some Western North Carolina counties amid worry the Obama administration would restrict gun ownership."

"That fear, along with concern a depressed economy will increase crime, also is fueling firearm sales ..."

"The spike started around the time of the election. Nationally, the FBI reported completing more than 1.5 million background checks for gun purchases in November, a 41.6 percent increase over November 2007 ..."

"That's meant brisk sales for gun dealers. But the increase has left even those in the gun business a little baffled."

"Today we filed our opening brief in the Court of Appeals. The basic arguments may be familiar to those who have followed the proceedings below, but we had somewhat more room to work with at this stage, not to mention the decision below required a response."

"All three remaining Chicago-area cases, ours and the two brought by the NRA against Chicago and Oak Park, have been consolidated on appeal. That means that they will be heard and decided together by the same panel, and the parties on both sides are to minimize the degree of overlapping arguments among them. We’ll post the other briefs on this website (the NRA’s, the Cities’, and amicis’) as they come in."
