"A gun rights advocacy group received top honors last night at the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen's annual banquet in Southington. The Connecticut Citizens Defense League was presented with the 'Organization of the Year' award by CCS, a co-litigant with their award recipient in the lawsuit against the state’s unconstitutional gun laws, CCDL’s blog administrator Chris Lemos announced to the group’s Facebook followers."

"They have their work cut out for them on that score, as well as on the legislative front." ...
 

Brady Campaign proves 'assault weapons' not defined by 'military features'

... "That a major anti-gun group is so transparently and unabashedly contradicting its own position is a point that cannot be made too loudly. That they are now arguing that the most expansive and restrictive 'assault weapons' ban in the United States contains 'dangerous loopholes' that must be closed with even more draconian gun laws is exactly the slippery slope argument in a nutshell.

Semi-automatic, detachable magazine-fed rifles are probably the best general purpose weapon for defending one's life and liberty. That's why the other side cannot abide our having them."

"The ebullient Emily Miller has become a champion for gun rights in recent years. Though, it wasn’t by design that she jumped into the fray, but by happenstance. After being the victim of a home invasion while dog sitting at a friend’s house, she felt for the first time in her life that being pro-Second Amendment in theory wasn’t quite good enough. ..."

"So began her journey through the tangled web of bureaucratic nonsense that it is the Washington, D.C. legal system. As Miller explains in her new book, ... obtaining a firearm in our nation’s capital is a long and complicated process that functions to discourage gun ownership amongst the law-abiding." ...

"Mercer Island resident and former NBA great Bill Russell issued an apology yesterday for his detention last week at Sea-Tac International Airport with a loaded handgun in his carry-on bag; a story that took local news agencies nearly 48 hours to report."

"It hasn’t taken that long for the local press to join the launch of what appears to be the first hints of exploitation of the Newtown tragedy. A report in today’s Seattle Times, picked up from a Hartford newspaper, covers previously unreleased details of the Sandy Hook shooting that readers are wondering why anyone needs to know. That it has taken ten months for these details to emerge might be a more interesting story. Why did authorities wait so long? ..." ...

"Downstate Rep. Brandon Phelps, D-Harrisburg, is such an expert on Chicago that he feels competent to tell us that Chicago’s problem isn’t guns but gans[sic]. I would tell Phelps that America has a gun problem which is exacerbating Chicago's gang problem. A gang-banger with a knife would not be able to wound 13 people on a basketball court from a moving car." ...

TN: Tennessee Firearms Association Claims Common Core Standards Promote Anti-Gun Agenda

"Do the Common Core State Standards promote an anti-gun agenda? That’s what the Tennessee Firearms Association apparently thinks."

"The nonprofit pro-gun group sent out an email last week calling for legislators to stop or delay the implementation of the new policy, which lays out a set of education benchmarks designed to emphasize critical thinking and deeper learning, and which has been adopted in 45 states and the District of Columbia. According to a written statement, the Firearms association takes issue with the way the new standards represent the Second Amendment." ...

Submitter's Note: Since one of the texts gives a "summary" of the Second Amendment as "The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia". I 'take issue' with it too!

"This is a story of a mass shooting that might have been if not for the efforts of a concealed carrier. However, don’t expect to see this story on the national news since there were no fatalities."

"Several guests ... were attending a party at a Glendale, AZ home when one of the guests, identified only as a 27 year old male, got into an altercation with several people at the home."

"The 27 year old was asked to leave, which he initially did. However, shortly thereafter, the 27 year old returned, this time armed with a rifle."

"The suspected shooter fired rounds off outside the home and when he pointed the gun at other guests, a 39 year old guest drew a concealed handgun and fired on the suspect, who was hit by the gunfire." ...

"There were two things wrong with Saturday's rally at the Alamo that featured hundreds of gun rights activists openly carrying rifles and shotguns:"

"First, Texans rightly support the Second Amendment and the concealed carry law, but open carry is different."

"Many people are unsettled at the sight of someone walking down the street with an AR-15 or other long gun. Our modern state doesn't need a return to a Wild West atmosphere."

"Secondly, the Alamo should be off-limits to any kind of political demonstration." ...

"Coonan, the premium pistol purveyor, is trumpeting their new association with Evolve. The organization bills itself as a 'group of gun owners, gun store owners, moms, professionals, leaders, and NRA members' with a goal of creating 'a new American gun culture where everyone is responsible for saving lives.' In their press release, Coonan says their goal is to encourage people to be 'responsible gun owners, not dumbasses.' That’s always good advice which Coonan could have benefitted from themselves. Maybe it would have kept them from being taken in by an obviously anti-gun false flag operation and proudly announcing the fact to the world . . ." ...

"Most important, I am a firm supporter of our Second Amendment rights – all of them!"

"Evolve is intending to bridge the gap between the extremely large number of people that are caught in the middle of this debate and shift the focus of the debate to the root causes of violence, as well as promote firearm safety and responsible ownership." ...

"Perhaps it was no surprise that in the wake of The Journal News’ publication of gun permit data in New York, the state legislature moved swiftly to cut off public access to the data."

"After all, it happened in Indiana in 2009, Virginia in 2007 and Florida in 2006, when lawmakers sought to make confidential gun permit data that was considered to be a public record ... only after media outlets published stories using the data."

"Yet in some ways, the reaction to The Journal News’ maps published soon after the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in nearby Newtown, Conn., is surprising in that it has sparked a rallying cry in state legislatures across the country to make government records about gun owners private ..." ...

"Texas is quietly implementing new regulations that give law enforcement clear authority to seize weapons from those in mental crisis and requires officers to check whether such persons are entitled to get them back."

"The law, passed with little fanfare earlier this year and signed by Gov. Rick Perry, went into effect Sept. 1."

"It requires county probate courts for the first time to inform police or sheriff’s deputies whether the person taken for evaluation was, in fact, ordered into a mental hospital. ..."

"Officers of the Houston Police Department ... had lobbied for the law because of an uptick in encounters with individuals in the midst of breakdowns who possessed firearms ..." ...

"A joint bulletin issued in early August by the Department of Homeland Security and FBI warns state and local law enforcement agencies to look out for people in possession of 'large amounts' of weapons and ammunition, describing the discovery of 'unusual amounts' of weapons as a potential indicator of criminal or terrorist activity."

"... According to the bulletin, weapons could be stored in an 'individual’s home, storage facility, or vehicle' and may include common firearms such as 'rifles, shotguns, pistols' as well as 'military grade weapons.' ... While the bulletin never clarifies what constitutes a 'large' or 'unusual' quantity ... it does say that such a quantity would 'arouse suspicion in a reasonable person.'" ...

Submitter's Note: Based on the accompanying photo, 5 rifles and 7 pistols constitute a 'suspicious' quantity.
