"What's the difference between a semi-automatic weapon and a fully-automatic weapon? What's the definition of an "assault weapon"? What features are cosmetic and which make a gun truly dangerous? Is there really such a thing as 'high capacity ammunition'?"

"You might not know the answers to these questions. But you'd expect the lobbyists, activists, pundits and politicians who advocate for gun control to, wouldn't you?"

"Yet more often than not, the very people looking to peel back our Constitutionally-protected Second Amendment rights are the ones who can't answer these simple questions. ..." ...
 

‘There is no Second Amendment right to own guns,’ says N.M. man (video available)

"Anyone who honestly believes that the battle over firearms rights is finished could consider an Op-Ed in the Saturday edition of the Santa Fe New Mexican on-line to be the proverbial splash of cold water, as author Hank Bahnsen insisted that 'There is no Second Amendment right to own guns. So intended the founders!'"

"Bahnsen’s 481-word essay elicited only three reader comments yesterday, but more importantly, illustrated the continued divide between firearms owners and gun prohibitionists. No amount of Supreme Court language in the Heller and McDonald rulings will change things, apparently. While Bahnsen is entitled to his opinion, it is likely to rub a lot of his fellow citizens the wrong way." ...

... "So, why is the restriction on asking about guns so important? Because the entire line of inquiry is politically motivated."

"The cover story for this subterfuge is that when physicians ask about firearms and safety issues, they generate a dialogue with patients that could end up saving lives. Government-promoted saviors saving, as an Obamacare czar might put it, stupid Americans from themselves."

"I don’t see it. In this day and age, when there is, literally, no shortage of access to health and safety information, it simply isn’t believable that physicians are the key to safe and responsible healthy living generally, let alone gun ownership in particular." ...

... "When it comes to the conversation on guns, we must remember one size does not fit all. There are at least two Americas, and one of them is likely populated with folks imitating fictional characters in gangster movies -- unaware that, reportedly, film directors instructed actors to hold the prop that way so they could capture the face and the gun in the same frame."

"It's all Hollywood."

"Pretend."

"Except for the tens of thousands who are wounded or killed each year in our city streets. Sadly, that's all too real."

"And by city streets I mean where predominantly blacks and Latinos live. Pretending the weekly gun violence that grips places such as Chicago and Baltimore doesn't run along racial lines is counterproductive. ..." ...

Gun Rights Advocate Says People Should Use Guns To Prevent Obama From Becoming A Tyrant (video available)

"In an appearance on Newsmax TV’s America’s Forum Monday, gun rights activist and white supremacist sympathizer Larry Pratt said that the reason President Obama is for gun control is 'he clearly doesn’t like the fact that the American people can own guns because we might just want to use them to keep people like him from becoming tyrants.' The executive director of the right-wing gun advocacy group Gun Owners for America was discussing the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The ATT has long been delayed in the Senate, mostly because Pratt and other conspiracy theorists have convinced a number of conservative lawmakers that passage of the treaty will lead to gun registries and the UN confiscating guns." ...

"I’m from coastal southern California. Not exactly a bastion of firearms freedom – although thanks to Sir Edward Peruta I finally get to exercise my natural, civil, and Constitutional right to bear arms (yes, I’ve unilaterally declared him a knight of the TTAG Armed Intelligentsia). I found myself staying in New York City over the weekend – one of the few places with even less regard for the Bill of Rights than the Golden State. As any TTAG reader would, I worked firearms into the trip. Luck had it that the world premiere of Jessica Solce’s ‘No Control‘ – a documentary on gun politics – had its world premiere Saturday night . . ." ...

"Unless the state Senate comes to its senses and rejects a risky measure that gives gun owners a green light to shoot to kill, House Bill 203 is headed for Gov. John Kasich’s desk. Mr. Kasich should stand with Ohio police chiefs and promptly veto it."

"In expanding Medicaid and acting courageously on several other issues, the governor has shown he has the mettle to buck the extremist wing of his party and do the right thing for the people of Ohio. Up to now, however, Mr. Kasich has taken a powder on Ohio’s version of stand-your-ground laws."

"His spokesman Rob Nichols told The Blade editorial page that the governor has not taken a position on the bill, but added that Mr. Kasich is 'pro Second Amendment.'" ...

"'If you don’t have a gun, get one and get one soon,' a poster called A Concerned Cop posts on St. Louis Cop Talk forum ahead of the grand jury decision in the Michael Brown homicide case: 'It will be your responsibility to protect them. Our gutless commanders and politicians have neutered us. I’m serious, get a gun, get more than one, and keep one with you at all times.' Scanning St. Louis Cop Talk for more feedback from the boys in blue, a clear message comes shining through: the cops at the sharp end have little to no faith in their superiors.

"Nevada city officials are denying claims made by a gun-rights group that they are considering an ordinance that would ban guns on city-owned property."

"The group Iowa Gun Owners sent emails to area media outlets and posted an article on its Facebook page Monday under the heading 'Breaking News,' telling readers the city was about to strip away their rights to defend themselves and that a vote on an ordinance banning guns on tax-payer owned property and making the city of Nevada a 'weapon-free zone' was 'imminent' and that the Nevada City Council was 'poised to vote … any day now.'"

"The emails and Facebook posting caused a flurry of phone calls and emails to City Hall, where officials steadfastly denied the group’s claims." ...

"A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco is weighing an attempt by the National Rifle Association to overturn Sunnyvale’s voter-approved ban on firearms magazines that hold more than 10 rounds."

"The NRA has argued that Sunnyvale’s law, passed a year ago, infringes on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The organization lost preliminary rounds in the legal fight when U.S. District Court Judge Ronald Whyte refused to grant a preliminary injunction to stop enforcement of the law and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to block the law pending appeal." ...

"Measure C was a response to several violent mass shootings: at Sandy Hook ... and the Colorado movie theater massacre ..."

"When the Maryland General Assembly passed one of the strictest gun laws in the nation in 2013, gun control advocates made sweeping statements about how the legislation would prevent gun violence, reduce the criminal element and save lives. Gun advocates, who were against the Firearm Safety Act, thought that the Maryland gun law infringed on Second Amendment rights. Of concern were aspects of the law that banned 45 different assault weapons, put a capacity limit on gun magazines and significantly increased the licensing requirements for handgun purchasers including mandatory fingerprinting." ...

"'Ruling could ease obtaining a permit' [Front page, Nov. 16] cites the recent ruling in a case of San Diego County v.

I believe it was a just and long overdue ruling; the Second Amendment means exactly what it says!"

"Following a series of court orders, the casual observer might think that the Second Amendment was alive and well in the nation’s capital, particularly after a court ordered the city to begin issuing concealed carry applications. But as we suspected at the time, just because you are handing out applications, that doesn’t mean you’re actually going to give anyone a permit. This week we have a live, in person testimonial from Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski about his efforts thus far to obtain the seemingly mythical document." ...
