"At first I thought the Mom from Moms Demand Action was just being a bitch. When I asked her politely if we could talk for a moment she point blank refused. Tersely. Aggressively. She wouldn’t even tell me her name. This after spending twenty-minutes hanging around with an Al-Jezeera reporter at the back of the crowd at the Alamo gun rights rally, and another ten minutes answering questions on camera for a nationwide TV audience. Checking her dilated pupils and remembering her extremely stilted performance in front of the camera, I backed off . . ." ...

"I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The AR-15 market is on fire. In my last post I talked about current AR-15 market trends. Long gone are the days of only ABC AR-15 choices, for ARMALITE, Bushmaster or COLT. As of autumn 2013, there are almost countless AR-15 product choices available on the market. Even still, almost daily there seem to be new product offerings, and even new manufacturers popping up in the AR-15 market. You should also notice that more and more, a plethora of AR style rifles are back in stock at your Local Gun Store (LGS). So with such a dizzying array of options, how do you narrow down the field, and make a well informed choice? Ponder this . . ." ...

"Sticker shock. Anyone who has ever shopped for a car knows what it is. I was somewhat surprised to find out it applies to firearm purchases as well. Fortunately, when I went to buy my first firearm someone was kind enough to warn me that just buying a gun is not the end of what you need. Buying a firearm by itself is like buying a computer without a keyboard, monitor, and mouse. Yes, you now have a computer, but it’s worthless for anything more than an expensive paperweight . . ." ...

"A lot of people don’t understand where this '90 percent of Americans support expanded background checks' number came from. It’s been drawn from a Quinnipiac study. If you want to know the truth about this statistic, pay special attention to the wording in question 31, and also the never-ever-ever mentioned question 35 from the SAME study. It’s pretty funny. Here’s question 31 . . ." ...

"The bizarre New York City highway altercation pitting a couple and their 2-year-old child in an SUV against a biker mob might have had a different outcome had the driver been armed with a handgun."

"'My guess would be if he had a Glock 9 millimeter with 30 or 40 rounds available to him, that situation would have ended a little differently,' said Kevin Cavanaugh, undersheriff in the Johnson County Sheriff's Department." ...

"Cavanaugh, a firm defender of the Second Amendment, sat down for an interview to talk about calls for gun control and implications of government policy touching upon the right of citizens to bear arms." ...

"Importation of M1 Garand rifles and M1 carbines from South Korea would be allowed, under legislation offered by Rep. Cynthia Lummis."

"The Wyoming Republican's legislation stems from an Obama administration decision to reverse its approval of a permit for the weapons that the U.S. provided many years ago to South Korea. Because the rifles had been exported under the authority of the Department of State, the department claimed authority over their importation back into the United States." ...

"Tired of depressing news? Smile, because here is some very positive news: 50 U.S. Senators—both Democrats and Republicans—have pledged to stop Obama’s latest attack on the Second Amendment."

"Last week, all 50 senators wrote a letter to Obama pledging not to ratify the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty. In order for this treaty to be ratified, it would need 60 'yay' votes in the Senate. This means, gun owners will not need to forfeit their God-given right to self-defense and President Obama is on notice that his latest attack on the Second Amendment is dead on arrival in the Senate." ...

"The gun control controversy is only the latest of many issues to be debated almost solely in terms of fixed preconceptions, with little or no examination of hard facts."

"Media discussions of gun control are dominated by two factors: the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment. But the over-riding factual question is whether gun control laws actually reduce gun crimes in general or murder rates in particular." ...

"Judge Richard Posner thinks he can dictate the law to the Chicago Political Machine. Where has Posner been all these years? Doesn’t the judge know how things work in Illinois, and that you can’t fight City Hall?"

"Let me explain to the naive judge what happens next. Chicago politics means you cheat if you ever lose in court. A federal 7th Circuit Court judge named Richard Posner thought the Constitution applied to Illinois and that honest citizens were allowed to carry guns outside their home. Well so what! Someday, you and I might get a permit to carry a firearm in Illinois. By the time the Chicago Machine is done passing laws, it will be illegal to go anywhere in Illinois with a firearm." ...

"Emily Miller, 'it' girl of the Second Amendment (and author of a lively book about her adventures in exercising her gun rights) brings us another example of inequality under the law, as the D.C. police hand over a pile of confiscated gun parts to a gun-control group for use in a silly demonstration. (They had blacksmiths beating the guns into plowshares outside the National Cathedral.)"

"As Emily writes at the Washington Times, not only is it awfully convenient for the authorities to provide activists with props for their demonstration, it's a blatant violation of the hyper-restrictive gun laws in our nation's capital:" ...

"From 1905 until 2011, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas were the custodians of the Alamo; but in 2011, custodianship was transferred to the state’s General Land office, the commissioner of which, Jerry Patterson, approved of yesterday’s rally.

"It might seem like idiocy on steroids, but that’s kinda how our Federal Government operates. Ever thought about helping out a family member by buying them that hunting rifle they’ve been looking at, or that Glock 19 they’ve been talking about getting? Well, prepare for prison if you buy it for them. A well established, and yet often ignored, law that was designed to stop criminals from getting their hands on guns through a third party might actually make more criminals than it catches."

"Hundreds of gun-rights advocates, many toting rifles and shotguns, gathered early Saturday at the Alamo in San Antonio to rally in support of gun ownership and the right to bear arms."

"The rally, called 'Come and Take It San Antonio,' comes in response to what organizers called San Antonio police's 'disregard for Texas law and The Constitution.' Organizers said the police department has harassed gun owners and created a hostile environment for legal gun ownership."

"Gun-rights proponents flooded a plaza near the historic site -- considered a shrine of Texas liberty since a small band of Texans fought and died in a battle against Mexican forces there in 1836. Many of those gathered carried banners, flags and sundry firearms." ...
