Submitter's Note: Thursday's Gun Rights Examiner column looks at a broken clock being right--for all the wrong reasons. Anything to facilitate a deception if you're desperate and shameless enough...and what professional anti-rights fanatic isn't?

The focus today will be on the main part of the book's suggested strategy for dealing with us 'Insurrectionists' (defined in the book as those of us who believe an armed citizenry is the final obstacle in a would-be tyrant's path).

Korean M1 Rifles and carbines. A scam of epic proportions

"The possible return of US made M1's has been a topic of some rather heated discussion. First, they were coming home as the US was going to purchase them. Then the Obama administration reversed it’s position and has banned the 'import' of these rifles into the US."

"Next we have South Korea thinking of selling these rifles to a wholesaler outside the US. Now this is novel as the actual ownership of these rifles is open to question."

"It appears that these rifles are actually owned by the US Army, and always have been."

"Daniel Gallington, a writer for the Cypress Times, has done some more digging on the issue of why the M1 rifles the United States gave to Korea years ago are still being barred from returning by the Obama administration. As it turns out, according to his research, we still own them."
"This was a 'grant aid' program, which meant that they were not 'sold' to the Koreans, and the ROK did not own them. They were loaned, and remained the property of the US government, specifically the US Army, who was the 'logistic implementer' for the MAP program." ...

Self defense and revenge

"An aspect of self defense in one's home that isn't discussed much is revenge. Robert Wallace of Wheat Ridge, Colorado had his 15 minutes of fame when he was charged with 4 counts of attempted murder for firing two shots at two criminals stealing his trailer parked in his yard. Eventually the courts ... decided that probation would be enough, but took all his guns away from him. Society is safe and justice is served."

"Now, his RV has been purposely burned by someone. ... He believes it is revenge and that is a pretty good guess since the police have said the thieves he shot at belonged to a car theft ring. ... The government has disarmed him to protect society. Who protects Mr. Wallace?"

Their claim is that the gun misfires frequently and causes serious injury and in a couple cases death. For the CNBC piece you can go to the following website http://www.cnbc.com/id/39554936/ and for the Remington rebuttal you can to this website http://www.remington700.tv/#/home"

"Every time one of these characters decides to attack or kill another citizen, and particularly if that person is a civilian law enforcement officer, the fallout inevitably encompasses the firearms community. Gun prohibitionists have concluded that the way to disarm criminals is to take guns away from their law-abiding would-be victims. That’s the kind of logic that comes straight off the stable floor, if you get my drift." ...

"National Republicans are furious with the [NRA], their natural ally, for endorsing 58 incumbent Democrats who support gun rights. And with Republicans aiming to win control of the House, some are promising retribution for the NRA next year."

"'In about a week, the NRA will find themselves on the bad sides of a few dozen new Republican members of congress. They have put their credibility – and also that of their members – on the line for the sake of ingratiating themselves with a bunch of liberal Democrats who are about to lose, and lose badly,' said one senior GOP operative who requested anonymity to speak freely." ...

"But Governor Perry doesn’t have that pistol anymore, anyway. He donated it for an auction to benefit the Former Texas Rangers Foundation ... The little pistol ... brought in about $19,000 for the cause. Pretty impressive."

"In July, the NRA [PVF] endorsed Murkowski rather than her opponent, Joe Miller, for her 'proven commitment to our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage.'"

"Miller won the primary, and though Murkowski is now pursuing a write-in campaign to retain her Senate seat, the NRA has not endorsed Murkowski, Miller or Democrat Scott McAdams in the general election. But in a recent mailer touting the late Sen. Ted Stevens' endorsement of Murkowski, Stevens is quoted as telling voters to support Murkowski because, among other reasons, 'Lisa is the NRA-endorsed candidate and is a strong supporter of our Second Amendment.'" ...

Swandal came out right away stating his support for the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling overturning the gun ban in D.C., and its ruling saying that yes, Chicago, the Second Amendment also applies to local governments. When you take a look at his record as a district court judge, it is pretty clear he is a supporter for individual and property rights. He does not believe the government has unlimited power over its citizens. If only we had more judges like him. ..." ...

Blevins, a Libertarian, an 'A' rating, while giving incumbent U.S. Rep. John Boccieri, D-Alliance, a 'D' rating. The endorsement was announced two days after the NRA formally endorsed Boccieri."

"The NRA gives Boccieri an 'A' rating based on his voting record in Congress and the Ohio Legislature."

"The GOA takes a different view on Boccieri’s voting records, which is why that organization gives him a 'D.' GOA contends Boccieri voted against the interests of gun owners six times. ..." ...

"That right encompasses owning and possessing firearms. Prop 2 addresses only the use of the Taser. It places no restrictions on the right of a person to possess or to carry a Taser."

"The Second Amendment and the right of possession of a firearm was defined clearly in the Supreme Court decision of District of Columbia v. Heller in 2008. The majority opinion, written by Justice Scalia, scrutinized every word and phrase ... and concluded the Second Amendment guarantees citizens the right to possess firearms ..." ...

"The Cedar Rapids Gazette ran an article today, in which I was interviewed. Overall, I have to say that it was a fairly well balanced article without a lot of editorial slant from the reporter. However, as we have often seen since Governor Culver signed SF-2379 into law, there are still some in Iowa that believe the sky is going to start falling on January 1 when Chapter 724 undergoes a wide range of changes. In an attempt to (once again) refute the doomsday predictions of those who believe that Iowa will revert to some sort of O.K. Corral or third-world landscape, let's take another look at the dire predictions and unfounded comments by some of the other people interviewed in the article." ...
