"The Buckeye Firearms Association -- a grassroots organization of activist gun owners in Ohio -- has been recognized as the 'Grassroots Organization of the Year' for 2007 by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms."

"The award was presented by CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb during the 21st annual Gun Rights Policy Conference, held at the Drawbridge Inn and Convention Center in Ft. Mitchell, KY across the Ohio River from Cincinnati."

"'We give this annual award in recognition of tireless hard work and dedication to the preservation of the individual right to keep and bear arms,' Gottlieb said, 'and the Buckeye Firearms Association has certainly lived up to that standard.'" ...

"Large numbers of people in this country believe that eliminating guns would make things safer. Belief is an amazing thing."

"It lets liberal judges in New York allow lawsuits against gun manufacturers because some thug used their product to kill someone else. Under this belief system, it’s just a matter of time before Toyota gets sued because a drunk driver used one of their trucks to kill someone. The same people also believed there would be blood in the streets each time a state passed concealed carry laws. The reality is, each and every time, murder and crime decreased faster in those states than anywhere else (google John Lott, whose studies have been reluctantly verified by some gun control advocates)." ...

"The now defunct National Association of Stocking Gun Dealers (NASGD) was truly instrumental in the ATF's crusade to shut down Federal Firearms License Dealers. Speaking before Congress to condemn 'kitchen table dealers' on behalf of the BATFE, NASGD President Bill Bridgewater clashed with the NRA and other gun organizations. This group appealed to many gun shops who felt threatened by these individuals who had an FFL. Fees were raised, distributors stopped selling to FFL's that did not have a storefront, City and County permits were then required, Licenses were just not even renewed."

"Now some dealers are shocked that the ATF has now turned their sights on them. ..."

"Mikey, Mikey, Mikey; I'm no therapist but it seems like you are an ATF wannabe by bankrupting businesses, setting up sting operations and wasting millions in tax money to prove your point."

"Reading about Jay Wallace with Adventure Outdoors, who is fighting back, is an inspiration that someone isn't just rolling over. You will remember the Virginia Citizens Defense League who had helped dealers fight back. Bloombergs response to those who fight back? 'These are sick people' Mikey, Mikey, Mikey; again I am no therapist but fighting for your rights is not sick, destroying someones life and business for your own political gain...now that is sick." ...

"When we at JPFO introduced our Goody Guns program ( http://www.goodyguns.com ), we expected controversy ... and we got it. All over the 'net, people are talking about it, with comments all over the board."

"Says Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America, 'Gun owners have a wonderful opportunity with Goody Guns to counter the Zero Tolerance nonsense. Whether at school, or any other place, Goody Gun cookies and other snacks should be ostentatiously enjoyed. Yummmmmm!!'"

"As we predicted, the gun-grabbers are screaming, referring to JPFO as an 'extremist' organization. ..." ...

... "What's the price of freedom? Only $9.95! But wait, don't answer yet! The Goody Gun cookie cutter can also be used for grilled cheese sandwiches! Cold cut sandwiches! Even a patriotic centerpiece! And for those who want to strike a blow for freedom while remaining observant, JPFO offers a Kosher sugar cookie recipe."

"To parents and teachers who would argue that teaching schoolchildren to put handguns in their mouths--tasty or otherwise--isn't the best idea, the JPFO has a response that they can only hope will soon be chanted over jump ropes and jungle gyms in schoolyards across our country: 'Put the gun-haters on the run with your Goody Gun!'"

"Only stars and the glimmer from a 140-pound mountain lion's fierce gaze provided light in the midnight darkness of Boulder County's foothills for Jeremy Kocar to cock and aim his rifle."

"Still, Kocar said his eyes adjusted 'quick enough' when the cougar looked up from the puppy in its clutches."

"'I took the shot, and that was the end of it,' said Kocar, 31, who now finds himself facing possible criminal charges for shooting the adult male lion."

"It's been three days since Kocar said he saved his family's Rottweiler-Labrador mix, Duke — and possibly his own life — by shooting the lion that attacked the 8-month-old puppy. ..." ...

"New York City's lawyers have asked a federal judge in Georgia to reconsider a ruling that a gun shop in that state can proceed with a $400 million defamation lawsuit against Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other city officials."

"The city's motion says public officials' speech about public issues should be immune from lawsuits, said city lawyer Eric Proshansky."

"The lawsuit arose from comments Bloomberg made in May 2006 after he sued gun dealers in several states, including Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna, Ga. He accused them of allowing the illegal purchase of guns that end up in criminal hands." ...

"On April 16, 2007, twenty-seven students and five faculty members at Virginia Tech lost their lives to a madman who possessed one distinct advantage over his victims—He was not concerned with following the rules. Undeterred by Virginia Tech's status as a 'gun free zone,' this mentally unstable individual carried two handguns onto the university campus and indiscriminately opened fire."

"During the week of October 22-27, 2007, college students throughout America will attend classes wearing empty holsters, in protest of state laws and campus policies that stack the odds in favor of armed killers by disarming law abiding citizens who are licensed to carry concealed handguns virtually everywhere else." ...

"Another school year has started. Kids settle back into a structured routine, bus drivers renew early morning coffee friendships, young athletes take to sports fields and millions of parents once again rely on security arrangements that amount to rubbing a rabbit’s foot. It was an especially surreal experience for me, as I walked into the brand new school building on dedication day, past dozens of brand new 'no guns' stickers, and noted that both my kids’ classrooms were right next to exit doors. Sadly, my first thought was to remember to tell my kids that if they hear gunfire, they are to run for the exit door rather than let the teacher lock them down as ready-made hostages." ...

"Senior Brint Hahn, the campus leader of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus at the University of Akron, disagrees with legislation that prohibits individuals from carrying concealed weapons on college campuses."

"'I'm not saying everyone should have a gun,' he said, adding, 'just responsible gun owners.'"

"An Oregon high school teacher is suing for her rights to bring a gun to school. She purchased the gun primary[sic] to protect herself from her ex-husband. The teacher also tells the reporter that she is exercising the Second Amendment[sic], which is the right to bear arms, as well as to protect her students. Does anyone see something wrong with this picture?"

"It is true that the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution allows rights for people to carry weapons. ... If this teacher is allowed to bring guns to school, wouldn't it influent[sic] kids to bear weapons too? ... Yet, a high school teacher might be permitted to have a gun in school. It would be so ironic if this teacher wins the case." ...

"There certainly is some virulent anti NRA sentiment out there and it appears most of those people are of the same ilk as the conspiracy theorist who believe that the United States planned the 911 attacks. Comments out of context and quotes from seventy years ago… Come on Guys get a life."

"Why would all the top lawyers involved in defending our 2nd Amendment rights agree that this is a good bill and does nothing to further restrict our rights? Why would the VPC be against it? The fact that McCarthy signed on to the bill means nothing ... The only people I see criticising this bill are those who have something to gain by attacking the NRA and those who do not know that the language of the bill has to be read in context with the current law." ...

"...9. That all the fencible men of the nation, betwixt sixty and fifteen, be with all diligence possible armed with bayonets, and firelocks all of a calibre, and continue always provided in such arms with ammunition suitable..."

"...and without which all the rest is of no force: neither can any kingdom be really secured but by arming the people..."

"...The possession of arms is the distinction of a freeman from a slave. . . . but he who thinks he is his own master, and has anything he may call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself and what he possesses, or else he lives precariously and at discretion. . . . Our ancestors by being always armed, and frequently in action, defended themselves..."

"...Let our condition, too, at that time be duly considered. Without arms, without money of effect, without a regular soldier in the State, or a regular officer, except Steuben, a militia scattered over the country, and called at a moment’s warning to leave their families and firesides, in the dead of winter . . . Yet had time been given them by the hasty retreat of that enemy, I have no doubt but the rush to arms, and to the protection of their country, would have been as rapid and universal as in the invasion during our late war, when, at the first moment of notice, our citizens rose in mass, from every part of the State, and without waiting to be marshalled by their officers, armed themselves..."

"One which avails itself of foreigners immediately has to fear not only its citizens, but the foreigners that it enlists; and, remembering what I told you a short while ago of Francesco Sforza, (you will see that) that fear ought to exist. One which employs its own arms, has not other fear except of its own Citizens. But of all the reasons which can be given, I want this one to serve me, that no one ever established any Republic or Kingdom who did not think that it should be defended by those who lived there with arms: and if the Venetians had been as wise in this as in their other institutions, they would have created a new world Kingdom; but who so much more merit censure, because they had been the first who were armed by their founders."

"Reading Lee Deems' Oct. 3 letter regarding the Second Amendment to our Constitution, there does indeed seem to be a widespread misconception regarding the importance of this amendment to our fundamental freedoms."

"... If Mr. Deems and others would also read the Federalist Papers, they would gain a more fundamental understanding of the wisdom of our founding fathers ..."

"This most basic right guarantees not only that we have a strong organized military structure, but that our general citizenry maintains the right to own and bear arms in the unlikely event the citizens of the United States would be in a position to exercise their solemn right -- indeed, duty -- to use those arms in the face of oppression." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government that is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. — JAMES MADISON
