... "That’s a relief. Because if things ever devolve beyond that, Savage has previously placed himself squarely on the side of bolstering the monopoly of violence in favor of those he says have declared war against traditional America."

"Unfortunately, his 2009 unsubstantiated opinion piece -- where he proclaimed the futility of resisting government tyranny and asked if it’s time to ban modern semiautomatic firearms in order to keep the police from being 'outgunned' -- no longer appears at its original url on the WND site. Fortunately, the 'Wayback Machine' Internet Archive has a long memory." ...

"A friend of mine named Fran recently passed away. In addition to being a friend, she was one of my first students. Her daughter and son-in-law had recently deployed. She was a petite lady who found herself living alone in the country. She knew I was a pistol instructor and asked me to show her how to use her Smith and Wesson SW380 pistol to defend herself. She broached the subject by talking about the apprehension she had of being by herself in a rural area. I think she also wanted to give me the opportunity to teach . . ." ...

"'Let me be clear,' Attorney General Eric Holder emphatically declared in a 2012 speech to the [NAACP], 'we will not allow political pretexts to disenfranchise American citizens of their most precious rights.' Holder’s remarks were a call to arms against efforts by Republicans to require that voters show identification when they go to vote. ..."

"However, when it comes to protecting the right to 'keep and bear arms' ... the Attorney General of the United States is nowhere to be found. Apparently our Second Amendment rights are just not 'precious' enough to worry about when governments engage in actions expressly designed to 'disenfranchise' individuals from exercising those rights." ...

"Have you ever wanted to mount a red-dot optic on your pistol but didn’t want to send your slide out to be milled? Well, now you can attach a Picatinny rail mount to most pistols with a front attachment rail (a 1913-style or similar), without gunsmithing. All you need is a UM3 sight mount . . ." ...

"I am going to admit that for no good reason I have in the past been a bit of a gun snob when it comes to the 30-30 Winchester rifle cartridge. I was new to the firearms business, right out of college, working at a gun shop in the Chicago area. First off, you could not even hunt with a rifle in Illinois so I am not sure what all the concern was about rifle calibers. Perhaps in the back of every customer’s mind they were someday going to be headed out west to take an elk ... These upscale Chicago hunters could not envision taking a moose in Montana with a lever-action cowboy gun known as a '30-30 deer rifle.' Some how I sort of fell into that thought process and dismissed the venerable 30-30 Winchester cartridge for over 35 years . . ." ...

"Then came the movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colorado, that left 12 dead and many more injured. Months later, 20 children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut."

"The NRA is coming, folks. It will have your tax dollars or your submission to its pro-gun agenda — and, by God, maybe it will have both."

"Don’t believe me? Then take a look at the text of House Bill 1243, which passed the Pennsylvania House this week, and which now sits before the Senate Judiciary Committee waiting passage."

"Here’s what the bill does: It discourages Pennsylvania cities and municipalities from passing gun laws that are more restrictive than state-level gun laws, or from keeping such laws that are already on the books."

"Here’s how the bill does that: It lets people sue Pennsylvania cities and municipalities with those too-restrictive gun ordinances." ...

... "... As the argument escalated, the wife took her cell phone and fled the home ... and the husband, James Ivey, age 41, got into his truck and drove away. The couple's son, Kyle Ivey, age 21, drove up to the home a short time later. Finding the home empty, he called his mother on his phone. Upon receiving his call, his mother came out of hiding ... A short time later, James Ivey returned to the home and continued arguing with his wife."

"... According to his mother, Kyle attempted several times to calm his father, James, and protect his mother. James responded by going into his room and getting a firearm and stating he was going to kill his wife. Kyle Ivey got his own firearm and two began to shoot at each other." ...

"A Lake Elsinore resident fatally shot a man who was trying to break into his home Sunday night, authorities said."

"About 10:45 p.m., a woman called 911 to report a burglary in progress, Riverside County sheriff’s officials said in a news release. The woman said a man was trying to force his way into their home in the 100 block of South Torn Ranch Road and that her husband had armed himself with a handgun."

"Sheriff’s officials said the husband, who is in his 40s, warned the man that he was armed and would shoot if he continued. The intruder did not heed the resident’s warning, breaking a window, and the homeowner opened fire, according to sheriff’s officials." ...

"The right to bear arms is unique among ... the Bill of Rights, in that it is the only right which is self-preserving. In other words, all other rights ultimately rely on the ability to resist to prevent their loss."

"As the common saying goes, you can’t have the First Amendment without the Second. ..."

"So, why is our right to keep and bear arms so important?" ...

"The Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment because, having recently secured their independence from England, they knew their freedom had only been possible through the use of guns."

"Whether people are comfortable with the truth or not, the reality is our rights are ultimately preserved either through the use of force or under the threat of violence. ..." ...

... "When gun control came up, Sandman said, 'I totally support the second amendment, being a veteran who was trained to use guns. I think we need to tweak the registration process and background checks, to keep the guns out of the hands of psychopaths and crazies.'"

"Nolan said he's a strong supporter of the second amendment as well. 'Some of the most joyful moments in my life have been with a gun in my hand. I do support the second amendment, but it doesn't mean we can't have gun safety like background checks.'
And Mills told the crowd that Nolan has gotten an 'F' rating from the NRA. 'We need to enforce the gun laws that we have, rather than making new ones.'" ...

"In response to Gary Pudup’s letter 'NY SAFE Act is a real life saver,' Sept. 28, self-defense is a right enshrined in the Constitution ... It is not a privilege bestowed by government."

"When Gov. Andrew Cuomo rushed through the SAFE Act overnight without the usual three-day review, he trampled on that right. He claimed the law answered an emergency existing after the Sandy Hook school tragedy ..." ...

"Gun owners sometimes stop crimes, as in the case of a woman’s beheading in Oklahoma in which the alleged assailant stabbed a second woman before the company’s chief operating officer shot and wounded him."

"McSally said that she has never been against such legislation, because she herself had been stalked, although she said she is a Second Amendment supporter. She said that she called on Barber multiple times to denounce the ad before ARS finally took it down. ..." ...

"'I wouldn’t have run an ad like that, because we have a different approach to what we’re talking about,' Barber said after the debate. 'I would’ve run an ad that spoke about the need to expand the background checks.'" ...

"Ahearn said if she is re-elected to represent District 37 (Hampton, Hampton Falls and Seabrook), one of her first actions will be to reintroduce her bill that died in the last Legislature."

“'I would put in exactly the same bill, immediately,' she said. Referring to polling in New Hampshire that has been conducted on this issue, she said, 'This is something just everyone agrees should be passed.'" ...

"The first of three public hearings by as many different city councils will be held tonight at the Sammamish City Council meeting to discuss the state’s dueling gun initiatives, 24 hours after yesterday’s revelation that billionaire Steve Ballmer and his wife, Connie, have kicked in another $250,000 to the Initiative 594 campaign."

"There seems little expectation that any city council would take the bold step of opposing I-594, the 18-page gun control measure sponsored by the well-financed Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility, and throwing its support behind the grassroots-sponsored Initiative 591, a one-page document supported by major law enforcement groups, sportsmen, gun collectors and rights advocates. ..." ...

"Still smarting from the kick of public feedback over a resolution to support state Initiative 594, Langley policy makers have decided it might be best to stay out of state politics that don’t directly affect the city."

"Prompted in part by Mayor Fred McCarthy’s retraction of the resolution, which he proposed last month, the council informally agreed to adopt a standard practice to not take any official stance on state and federal issues at Monday’s regular meeting."

"The decision, though not voted on, represents a step away from McCarthy’s proposed resolution of support for Initiative 594 which calls for gun sale and transfer regulation." ...

"Inspired by a recent post and given that I have been dishing the sh*t at some of our local constabulary, I thought I would share some positive encounters I have had as it pertains to CCW. In Rock Hill Missouri, a small municipality in an area that is rich with small municipalities, I was pulled over by the 5-0 for going too fast in a not-so-fast zone. As I was told a bajillion times by my cop stepfather, I kept my hands at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel. I did not get my wallet out, I did not bend over and rummage through my glove box. I essentially sat at attention, hands on the steering wheel and watched the cop approach in my rear view mirror . . ." ...

"Contrary to what Mr. Kelly states in his Sept. 17 column, the NRA is still in the forefront of firearm safety. The NRA trains and certifies police firearm instructors and home firearm safety instructors. It is involved with many states’ hunter education course programs and has a proven gun safety program called “Eddie Eagle” that is used in many schools throughout the country. The NRA does not sell nor does it exist to sell guns."
