... "What responsible citizen could be against these law and order and safety measures?"

"What good reason could there be to not demand licensing and accounting of guns? Who but those with criminal intent could object to cooperating with police in this important matter?" ...
 

Why Gun Bans Still Don't Work

"Yesterday's wild shooting spree at the University of Texas fortunately ended without anyone being hurt before the gunman shot himself. Naturally, the incident has yet again raised the question over gun bans, such as the ban currently in effect at the University of Texas."

"Do they actually do more harm than good?"

"Gun bans as the solution to gun violence has popped up again, covering different areas. It would have been nice if such bans had stopped criminals from using guns. But, alas, the results are invariably the same, whether the ban is put in place for college campuses, cities, or entire nations: gun bans disarm the law-abiding, not criminals. Instead of making victims safer, they make criminals safer." ...

"Many Americans recently lamented the six-month anniversary of ObamaCare, a law that is guaranteed to result in tremendous violations of our gun rights."

"How do we know that? We know because of what the feds have already been doing with legislation that George Bush signed two years ago."

"With the passage of the Veterans Disarmament Act in 2008, Congress granted the Veterans Administration (VA) the authority to computerize the medical records of veterans and ship them to the FBI. Any diagnosis that could be interpreted as 'might be a danger to self or others' results in the vet being denied his right to keep and bear arms. People with concealed carry permits are denied renewals. Customers at gun stores are turned down." ...
 

Guns: The Mayors' Plaint

"Virginians are supposed to feel just terrible, we take it, that guns bought here sometimes are used in crimes in other states. According to a gun-control group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the commonwealth ranks near the top of the list of states exporting criminally employed guns."

"In 2009, for instance, about 2,500 guns recovered during criminal investigations were traced back to Virginia. ... The mayors' group suggests strong gun-control laws could bring the number down even further."

"... From the preventive internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII to the Bush administration's use of warrantless wiretaps, the noble cause of preventing violence has been used to justify all sorts of infringements on Americans' civil rights." ...
 

WV: State No. 2 in crime gun export rate

"A report released this week by the bipartisan coalition Mayors Against Illegal Guns shows West Virginia has the second highest crime gun export rate in the nation and concludes that states with the weakest gun laws are the top sources of guns recovered in out-of-state crimes" ...

"Opponents of stricter gun control laws, such as Beckley-based attorney James M. 'Ji'" Mullins Jr., believe the report's findings are misleading and called its conclusions baseless. ..."

"'The ultimate goal of the Bloomberg gang is not simply tougher enforcement of existing laws, but new laws to make legal gun ownership far more burdensome and ultimately less prevalent in society in general,' Mullins said." ...
 

Arming students will result in more deaths

"Martin Luther King, Jr. made a timeless point when he said, "Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness." An act of violence, in general, is bad enough. Add to that the possibility of worsening or encouraging that act, especially when such action would be preventable, and you have exactly the issue I have with allowing college students to carry guns on campus."

"The 2007 Virginia Tech University shooting remains a tragedy in the minds of many college kids, as does the recent student suicide on the University of Texas at Austin campus. Imagine if a handful of armed students had attempted to play heroes and step in. Imagine how much worse either situation could have been." ...
 

CA: Why Don't 'Open Carry' Gun-Rights Advocates Target L.A.'s High-Crime Neighborhoods Instead Of ... Manhattan Beach?

"Ah yes, the gun nuts who are part of the Open Carry movement love to show off sidearms and flaunt their rights at Starbucks, Peet's Coffee & Tea, California Pizza Kitchen and now, as the Daily Breeze reports, even at a family fair."

"Fair enough (or not). The idea, they say, is to exercise their right to bear arms, especially in a state that seems to make it a crime to even think about guns."

"But if they really wanted to make a point instead of scaring people with their lethal phallic symbols, shouldn't the Open Carry folks target areas that could truly benefit from the presence of scary white men with weapons? Why are they instead hanging out with kids at a suburban park this weekend in Manhattan Beach? ..." ...
 

VA: Gun laws make Va. a mecca for felons with credit cards

"VIRGINIA FANCIES itself a genteel place, a fact that sits uncomfortably with this: It is also one of the nation's leading gun-buying bazaars for out-of-state criminals."

"That distinction may have been lost on many law-abiding Virginians, but not on the nation's violent felons and misdemeanants. For them, the commonwealth's gun shows -- where criminals can purchase weapons without a background check -- and its gun shops are a regular source of easy-to-get firearms." ...
 

From the Right: Gun control can be murder
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Here's the thing about gun control: it doesn't work. The megalomaniac who robs a bank, the emotionally disturbed loner who walks into a school and attempts to murder his classmates, and the drug dealer who brings a gun with him in case his clients are unwilling to pay up- none of these individuals have any regard for human life. They have even less regard for the restrictions that ambitious, well-intentioned legislators put on guns. Coincidently, they could all be stopped dead in their tracks (sorry, bad pun) if those same legislators had allowed law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed weapon." ...
 

From the Left: The right to bear arms? Still?

"In 1791, as many of us know, the Bill of Rights was ratified. We were a new country with a new government that a lot of people were wary about. People thought that the government would impinge on their rights, and not be able to provide adequate security to its people. The Second Amendment was established in the Bill of Rights. It states that a person is able to keep and bear arms and cannot be impinged upon. It also states that the people can create a militia, in order for the state's security. The question now-is the right to bear arms still relevant?" ...

"A man was shot in the shoulder by an acquaintance early Thursday..."

"The incident began when a 33-year-old man directed an acquaintance where and how he could receive FEMA disaster relief money ..."

"After the man ... collected his money, the 33-year-old man demanded a 'referral fee' and they began arguing ..."

"But when the 33-year-old man did not receive any money he became enraged, and allegedly said, 'I'm going to get you. ...'"

"The 33-year-old then drove a car into the man's porch, prompting that man to come out of his house ..."

"When the resident saw the motorist walking towards him with his hands in his pockets, he became fearful he would be shot, so he fired ..." ...

"ELECTIONS ARE coming up fast and I would like to urge everyone to wake up. I challenge everyone to research and think before they vote. Read the Constitution. See what bills the incumbents voted for."

"New blood is needed. I will vote for some R's and maybe a few of the new guys. This is not because I belong to a party."

"I will support the Libertarian state candidates as well. They believe our taxes are too high. They believe in the Second Amendment. They believe in limiting the size of government. They believe in repealing taxes, and in some cases doing away with government offices that do nothing but waste money (www.lpillinois.org)." ...

" In an announcement that underscored the organization's decades-long memory, the National Rifle Association on Thursday endorsed Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Brad Ellsworth."

"The organization said it is Ellsworth's support for Second Amendment rights during his four years in Congress that led to the endorsement."

"Ellsworth's Republican opponent, former Sen. Dan Coats, has been an NRA target since entering the race because of votes he cast in favor of gun-control measures in the 1990s." ...

"A Wisconsin advocacy group has officially filed a lawsuit against the Madison Police Department after an incident in which five men received tickets for disorderly conduct for openly carrying firearms in an east-side Culver’s restaurant."

"Wisconsin Carry, Inc. President Nik Clark hinted WCI may file a lawsuit against MPD last week. He said in a statement WCI officially filed their lawsuit against MPD Wednesday."

"In the complaint for the lawsuit, WCI alleges the officers involved in the incident “accosted” the five men charged with disorderly conduct and violated both their Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights." ...

"On the heels of a Sept. 28 encounter between an Open Carry activist and four Pierce County Sheriff’s deputies at a Spanaway Starbucks, more than a dozen members of OpenCarry.org are planning to gather at the same coffee shop on Saturday at 10 a.m. in a show of support for their comrade."

"The incident has sparked outrage on the Open Carry forum, primarily because the armed citizen in this case managed to capture most of it on audio, and there is a link provided on the website. It is worth a listen so everyone can make up their own minds about this." ...
 

Wisconsin Culver's gunslingers secure their rights

"Five pistol-packin' strangers recently scared the dickens out of a 62-year-old woman at a Madison Culver's, and she called the cops."

"But now the cops are the ones who are in trouble."

"They'd walked into a piece of Second Amendment street theater and not an armed stand off. But they didn't know that until they demanded some ID and explanation from the gunslingers."

"It turns out that cops can't do that in Wisconsin, and these officers were set up by Wisconsin Carry, a gun rights group, to show cheeseheads they live in an oppressive police state." ...

Submitter's Note: One wonders if the author would be on the cops' side still if the "gunslingers" were instead a group of blacks or Muslims?
 

Feds radiating Americans'? Mobile X-ray vans hit US streets

... "Security experts say expanding the X-ray technology for use on American streets is a powerful counterterror strategy. They also point out the images do not not offer the kind of detail that would be embarrasing to anyone. Moreover, law enforcement already has broad search-and-seizure powers on public highways, where a search warrant is often not needed for officers to instigate a physical search." {emphasis added}

Submitter's note: That is NOT true. You can refuse a search. Blatant media distortion to erode our remaining liberties strikes again.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down... a person cannot be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)
