KABA ... posted a dynamic video for Tuesday, Nov. 9, titled "Why Tea Party Conservatives Believe In Gun Rights." My contention is the word conservative. I wish these distorted terms called liberal and conservative were deleted, dropped and erased.

Ten years is a very long time, during which a political landscape can change, and so can the judicial arena.

Ten years ago, if someone had suggested that the politically-fashionable handgun bans in Washington, D.C. and Chicago could be struck down on Second Amendment grounds, he might have been laughed out of town. Today, a herd of municipal attorneys for cities and towns large and small are paying a lot closer attention to firearms regulations.

The case, known as Heller II, is seeking to overturn restrictions on firearms possession the District of Columbia imposed after Heller won his previous case. Like his previous challenge, Heller lost in the district court. He then defeated the city in the appeals court, ending Washington's almost total ban on guns. A victory in Heller II has the potential to provide gun advocates in other states with an influential ruling, Heller's lawyer, Stephen Halbrook, said in an interview.

When Florida's so-called "stand-your-ground law" took effect in 2005, a well-known anti-gun organization started issuing scary warnings to tourists.

The Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence advised Florida's visitors to avoid arguments with the locals, lest they be gunned down by a populace now free to pull the trigger whenever anyone made them feel nervous.

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) recently released a list of the top benefits of hunting. Outdoorsmen can contribute to the economy's recovery by capturing affordable and healthy food.

A two-year-old law that was intended to protect Ohio homeowners who shoot intruders in self-defense is instead increasingly being manipulated to help murder suspects avoid taking responsibility for their crimes, some prosecutors say.

The so called "castle doctrine" of 2008 says people are presumed to be acting in self defense when they injure or kill someone who has illegally entered their occupied home or vehicle.

2010 could have been a bad year in Madison for the Second Amendment.

WI-FORCE and our lobbyist, Bob Welch of the Welch Group, monitored over 100 bills and potential bills in Madison pertaining to firearms and hunting.

Yes, I said over 100. When you needed a voice, WI-FORCE was there. We were able to get a few good bills passed and, more importantly, we stopped all of the very bad bills. WI-FORCE was your voice.
 

FL: Free AK-47 With Truck: An Extreme Upgrade in Car Upgrades

A car dealership in Florida is offering a free AK-47 via $400 voucher to a local gun shop with the purchase of a pick-up truck.

In my limited experience with car purchases, the upgrades offered from most dealerships are things like scientific-sounding paint jobs that protect from harmful UV rays, all sorts of CD players and MP3 docks, and if it’s a really seedy dealership, something like a coupon to Olive Garden or Red Robin.

The one kind of case most police officers dread responding to is a child who has been shot, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said at a news conference Monday promoting November as Gun Safety Month.

"That tugs at your heart," Youngblood said. He noted he is probably the leading sheriff in the state to advocate the right to own a gun, but he also will enforce laws to keep guns away from children.

There's an old saying that American freedom stands upon three boxes: the soap box, the ballot box, and the ammunition box.

That's a metaphorical way of describing three essential freedoms that are the guardians of liberty: the right to free speech, the right to free and fair elections, and the right to keep and bear arms.

To many on the right, those freedoms are under attack, and have been for years, by the left.

Growing up in suburban Broken Arrow, I never really had the chance to grow an interest in weapons. To my Dad, who had three guns above the bed most of my teenage years, I never showed enough interest to warrant all the fees and licenses. Also, I was a bit of a pseudo hippie-stoner more interested in skateboarding, science or other creative and intellectual pursuits; than the rough and tumble “manly-man” things of the world. Your basic teenage lump, I never shot a gun until well into my twenties.

The federal government has created new regulations and demanded that the states implement those regulations. At the same time, the federal government has refused to give the states the monetary support necessary to implement the new demands. The federal government has also overextended its reach by placing unnecessary restrictions on individual rights, such as the constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.

He hasn't even been sworn in yet, but Representative-Elect David Simpson is already stirring the legislative pot.

Simpson's pre-filed H.B. 86 a week ago. It would allow students, faculty, staff, and visitors on Texas college campuses to legally carry concealed handguns, as long as they are at least 21 and properly licensed by the state.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Resistance to sudden violence, for the preservation not only of my person, my limbs, and life, but of my property, is an indisputable right of nature which I have never surrendered to the public by the compact of society, and which perhaps, I could not surrender if I would. — JOHN ADAMS
