"It's interesting that Gresham noticed the deflection from the issues he'd raised to discuss promotional points he had not. That's an M.O. the ACLU has employed before, particularly where the Second Amendment is concerned."

Bill Whittle’s continuing exposition on what conservatives and Tea Party people believe looks at gun rights.

Yes, guns are fun. Having guns is fun. Shooting guns is even more fun. I’ve been shooting them since long before I could drive, and carried a variety of them on a daily basis during my years in the military and law enforcement.

But guns are more than just fun. They are vital for defense–national and personal. And they are a key element of maintaining our freedom.

Every oath-taker has an individual responsibility to identify lawful orders and also the unlawful ones. To obey lawful orders and safeguard the self evident "natural rights" of the citizens and to disobey orders that take those rights away from them.

After all our right to defend ourselves doesn't come from government, it comes from God and it cannot be taken away by a "presuming" administrative official." The Constitution itself is just an affirmation of our natural rights.

As we noted in the Sept. 24, 2010 Grassroots Alert, a draft report prepared by the Justice Department Inspector General had called into question the BATFE’s mega-million-dollar Project Gunrunner program.

Established in 2007, this program sought to expand the agency’s firearm tracing operation, relative to the still uncertain amount of smuggling of firearms from the United States to Mexico. This week, the report appeared in final form.

A recent press release issued by OpenCarry.org highlights last week’s pro-gun election results. Turns out open carry campaign pledges appear to run hand in hand with gubernatorial victories in 4 states: Florida, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas.

Open carry organizers are expecting success in at least two states, Oklahoma and Florida, in the near future. Perhaps this will set the stage for Congress to preempt the District of Columbia on gun control and restore gun carry rights in our Nation’s Capital.

Two Kansas City police officers who thought they were being shot at from inside a van returned fire Thursday night.
Only later did police realize that the van was actually backfiring and the man inside was not armed. He was not injured by the shots fired by police.
Windows of the police car were apparently shot out by the officers as they exited the patrol car.
The officers were dispatched on a report of shots being fired from a white van just before 6 p.m. Thursday on Gregory Boulevard near Interstate 435.
When the officers got to the area they saw a white van parked on Gregory and pulled up near it. As they were getting out of the patrol car they heard the backfiring and fired their weapons.

U.S. Guns Blamed For Fueling Violence In Mexico

Many Mexican politicians view the current drug war — which has claimed roughly 30,000 lives over the past four years — as one more curse foisted on Mexico by their rich neighbor to the north.

In this worldview, the incredibly violent conflict is fueled by U.S. demand for narcotics, fought with weapons from U.S. gun shops, and funded by U.S. cash that flows freely across the border.

At the chamber of the Mexican Senate, Sen. Sebastian Calderon Centeno says the United States hasn't done anything to curb demand for drugs or to diminish the flow of guns into Mexico. He says the drug war is actually increasing weapons trafficking.

The statute should not be rescinded. Surely, perhaps in consultation with prosecuting attorneys, defense lawyers and judges, legislators can amend the law to keep criminals from using it as a shield. Such refinements should be considered by the General Assembly next year.

On Monday morning at 10:30AM there will be a hearing for partial summary judgment in the case of Ed Peruta v San Diego County et al which will be held at the Federal Courthouse for the Southern District of California located at 940 Front Street San Diego, CA.

The net effect of a judgment in his favor is that California will become a "shall issue" state in the jurisdiction of the presiding judge, Chief Federal Judge Irma Gonzalez. As any first year law student should know, success in the Peruta case has ramifications throughout the 9th Circuit Court.

The mayor said on Friday he'd announce the exact date and location today. The December date, Adams said, should draw plenty of gun owners who may looking for extra shopping money for the holidays.

Cars came by the dozens today to Stockton’s first “Gifts for Guns” exchange. The program offered a “no questions asked” gun drop-off site that would exchange the weapon, working or not for a gift card that ranged from $10 to $150, depending on the gun.

Mayor Ann Johnston was at the collection site that handed out the gift cards in exchange for the 195 handguns, shotguns and assault rifles that were taken for destruction.

As the annual nine-day gun-deer season approaches, Wisconsin firearms dealers are seeking background checks on a growing number of potential gun buyers. The 21,543 checks done this past month — one of the state's highest figures in the past 10 years — seem to reflect a growing interest in the buying and selling of weapons.

Trigger-happy Australian soldiers have been warned not to shoot so much, except in an absolute emergency.

If they just blaze away and exceed recommended rates of fire for automatic weapons, they could face serious injury or even death, authorities have said.

A defence spokesman said there had been a number of such incidents in the past three years, most on live-fire ranges in Australia.

As Wisconsin transitions to a Republican-controlled state government, many changes will occur — some large, some small, some beneficial, some not. One change we likely will see is passage of concealed carry and "castle doctrine" legislation.

Concealed carry, as the name implies, allows permit holders to carry a concealed weapon for self-protection. Wisconsin and Illinois are the only two states without a concealed carry permit process.

We make it too easy for dangerous people to get guns in this country. Deficiencies in our gun laws, like the terror gap and gun show loophole, allow suspected terrorists to buy guns legally or avoid background checks by purchasing firearms from unlicensed sellers.

No, not as in the fashion sense.

Nor in the sense that District of Columbia’s Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry suggested today on WTOP.com talk radio (“DC Mayor Adrian Fenty lost his election because "there was a overtantly disproportionate number of white people . . . in top positions and that's why I want black people . . . the African American community are in rebellion over this kind of conduct’").

But rather as in the former Republican Delegate from Loudoun County, Virginia named Dick Black, a staunch backer of Second Amendment legislation long before it was politically cool to do so.

Jews: Looking Down the Wrong End of the Barrel [video]

Aaron Zelman's organization, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, is well known in second amendment circles as an outfit that takes no ideological prisoners. The JPFO has released a video, No Guns for Jews, that states the case as well as anything I have seen.

The video makes it clear that Jews have been at the wrong end of the barrel for longer than there have been barrels. There is a long tradition of disarmed Jews -- so long, in fact, that Jews have mentally accepted it. Zelman is trying to change their minds.

 

KS: Gun ruling reversed

Section 4 of the Kansas Bill of Rights previously stated: "The people have the right to bear arms for their defense and security; but standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, and shall not be tolerated, and the military shall be in strict subordination to the civil power."

City of Salina v. Blaksley, an early 20th century Kansas Supreme Court case, interpreted Section 4 as providing only a right to members of the military to bear arms while on duty.
