"The goals of Ammo Day:"

"The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Not hard to do considering the recent Ammo Shortages but lets make your support of the Second Amendment known–by voting with your dollars!"

"There are an estimated 75 MILLION gun owners in the United States of America. If each gun owner or Second Amendment supporter buys 100 rounds of ammunition, that's 7.5 BILLION rounds in the hands of law-abiding citizens!" ...
 

Don't surrender so quickly on Firearms Freedom Acts

... "New Hampshire attorney E.F. Nappen writes that the Firearms Freedom Acts being introduced and enacted in various states are subject to 'The Achilles Heels of the Firearms Freedom Act.' He argues that the inclusion of NFA (National Firearms Act) items (e.g., suppressors or short-barreled rifles) in the asserted exemption from federal authority will cause the Acts to fail in court because the NFA regulates under federal tax power, not federal commerce clause power."

"Of course Nappen is correct to assert that getting the permission of federal judges in approval of the Acts will be a difficult exercise. The federal government (including its judicial branch) doesn't surrender power readily." ...

"News editor Bob Unruh at WorldNetDaily points to another looming threat against the right to keep and bear arms:"
"Second Amendment advocates are expressing alarm that the most significant attack on gun rights across the United States in years soon could come in the form of a workplace 'safety' regulation under President Obama's nominee to run the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration."
"Why?"
"Obama has nominated David Michaels, a George Washington University professor and the chief of the Project on Scientific Knowledge and Public Policy, which reportedly partially is funded by George Soros."
"And what does Michaels think about guns? Don't let me tell you, let him." ...
 

The Brady Campaign against their own words

"Back in late October, I wrote 'Brady Campaign hypocrisy,' chiding the Brady Campaign--specifially, their Vice President for Law and Policy, Dennis Henigan--for his accusation that the 'gun lobby' tries to hide the truth. This accusation positively reeks of hypocrisy, on a couple levels."

"First, Henigan himself, in arguing on a video clip that the Second Amendment did nothing to protect the individual's right to keep and bear arms, recited the amendment in its entirety--except for the 'of the people' part ..."

"Second, when this clumsy bit of Constitutional editing on the Brady Campaign's part was publicly exposed ... they did everything they could to erase all Internet tracks of the video segment ..." ...

"If only we had followed the Ten Commandments, the massacre at Fort Hood would not have happened. Tautological, no?"

"Oh, I didn’t mean that Ten Commandments. I meant 'The Ten Commandments of Self-Defense.'"

"Commandment #1: 'G-d has given you the right of self-defense, even with deadly force, when warranted.'"

"The murdered US soldiers, those who voluntarily trained to stand in the line of fire against our enemies in order to keep us safe, they were denied the right to defend themselves. Why? Because the US government — that same government that they are sworn to defend — took away their G-d-given rights. Gun Free Zones" ...

"'Appearances can be perilously deceiving,' begins an editorial in Wednesday's USA TODAY. And, say the authors, you might be forgiven for the mistake of believing Nidal Malik Hasan shot forty-two people because he is a Jihadist."

"But that’s because you're just an 'intolerant' American. Say James Alan Fox and Jack Levin, in 'Fort Hood tragedy: Terror or typical workplace violence?':" ...

"Their hatchet-job spins out a variety of half-truths, including, for example, describing Hasan's 'Palestinian descent' without mentioning that he claimed Palestinian nationality despite being born in Virginia, and mentioning 'negative [job] evaluations Hasan received for substandard performance' ..." ...

"Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, a loyal Democrat and liberal-left ideologue, blamed the Fort Hood massacre --perpetrated last Thursday by a radical Muslim soldier --on firearms."

"'Mayor Daley is deplorably capitalizing on the outrage at Fort Hood to push his gun prohibition agenda,' said Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms."

"'This is the height of moral bankruptcy from a man whose administration was sued Wednesday morning by the Chicago inspector general over apparent interference with an investigation into possible wrongdoing by current and former city employees.'" ...

"The horrific attack on our brave American soldiers at Fort Hood brought to the surface many of the things that are wrong with American society. Most of the drive-by media were quick to blame the killings on the 'stress' that had been placed on the (alleged) murderer ..."

"In bold print above the fold, the New York Times explained to us the stress of going overseas and being deployed ... was the 'trigger' that pushed Hasan over the edge. At the same time, a veterans group, meeting in Washington with Senate staff about the time of the shooting, said that the Army had failed to increase the number of mental health professionals working with U.S. soldiers coming back from the war zone and this was the reason for the killing spree ..." ...

"As a veteran of the U.S. Army, I was brought to tears by the horrific massacre at Fort Hood, Texas. Seeing coverage of my former comrades brutally murdered at my former duty station was almost too much to take. The news that it was allegedly the act of a fellow soldier remains unfathomable."

"While stationed there a few years back, we knew were sitting ducks for a terrorist attack and that only the appearance of security kept it from happening. Anyone on the inside, like the alleged gunman in this case, knew he could easily pull off such a massacre." ...

"Choose your battles carefully."

"That's good advice to parents with teenagers. It's good advice for politicians. Some issues are too emotionally charged and not worth the fight. I would give the same advice to the American gun manufacturers and the [NRA]."

"I'm a strong Second Amendment rights person. I stand against fire arms registration and government control and confiscation of our guns. But I strongly feel that the firearm manufacturers of our country are making a big mistake in producing the AR-15 sporting rifles." ...

"The one thing holding D.C. back from having Congressional representation seems to be a debate on gun rights. The D.C. Voting Rights Act, which would give our city an official representative in the House, has stalled for the past nine months. In February, it passed in the Senate - but only after being stamped with additional language that would abolish many of Washington's already depleted gun laws. The House seems unsure of what to do, with an influential pro-gun lobby splitting the Democrats while D.C. residents wait. Thank you for helping the nation's capital, National Rifle Association." ...

"A 20 year old homeowner from Missouri City, TX used his hand handgun to fend off a pair of violent home invaders."

"Police say that a car carrying three criminals arrived at the victim's home, at which point two of them got out from the vehicle, invaded the home, and demanded money. The homeowner was reportedly able to grab a pistol and fire multiple shots at the intruders, sending them running.

"State Rep. David Levdansky worries about an all-too-familiar and sometimes lethal scenario:"

"People who pass criminal background checks buy handguns for criminals -- who are legally prohibited from possessing them -- in what is called a 'straw buy.'"

"When police trace the handgun back to the original purchaser, the person claims it was a lost or stolen, and the investigation stalls."

"'This ordinance is designed to take the alibi away from the straw purchaser,' said Mr. Levdansky ..." ...

Submitter's Note: Here's the new scenario:
LEO: "Sir this crime gun was traced to you."
Strawman: "Hmm, that gun should be in my storage locker/cabin/shed. Let's go see. [Arriving at location] Oh my stars and garters, someone has stolen all my guns! Officer, I'd like to report a theft!"

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A state trooper in northwest Ohio who was once honored for making the most DUI arrests has been charged with drunken driving.

A patrol spokesman said Gerald Gibson has taken a leave following his arrest last weekend.

He was most recently an investigator at the Allen Correctional Institution.

Gibson was off duty when police in the town of Waynesfield say he drifted left of center and then refused to take a breath test.

He was named 2002 trooper of the year in Lima and Mothers Against Drunk Driving honored him in 1997 for making the most drunken-driving arrests by a Lima trooper.

A message seeking comment was left with Gibson's attorney, William Kluge.

"Could you hit a target the size of a sheep at more than 500 yards while standing and shooting a rifle offhand? Gary Dawson does that so well he has won the Michigan High-Power Rifle Championship several times."

"He's also a multiple champion in the small-bore division ..."

"So when Dawson talks shooting -- as he did at the Detroit Sportsmen's Congress range in Shelby Township as hunters zeroed in guns for Sunday's firearms deer opener -- it pays to listen."

"'There are people who are happy if they put most of their shots into the orange (6-inch bull's-eye) at 50 yards, and there are those who want to shoot a 2-inch group at 100 yards,' he said. 'We try to help both.'" ...

"The jury took 20 minutes to make its conviction, and Mr Clarke now faces a minimum of five year's imprisonment for handing in the weapon." ...

"Prosecuting, Brian Stalk, explained to the jury that possession of a firearm was a 'strict liability' charge – therefore Mr Clarke's allegedly honest intent was irrelevant." ...
