"Registration leads to confiscation. We all know that, and that is why GOA has vehemently opposed all attempts by government forces to compile or retain information pertaining to lawful firearms purchases."

"But in the name of fighting terrorism, the United States Congress is getting ready to trample on the rights of law-abiding Americans, no matter what the Constitution (and current law) happens to say."

"The House will be voting as early as this Friday (tomorrow) on the PATRIOT Act reauthorization bill (H.R. 3199). Congressmen have been ironing out differences in the House and Senate versions of the bill for quite some time, as GOA ... has watched carefully to see what the House-Senate conferees would produce."

"Well, the product stinks." ...
 

Trigger Locks Kill

"...In fact, if the latest detailed report of the National Safety Council is any indication, there are virtually no accidental shooting deaths taking place. There is no mention of them in the report. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada."

"That's great news. You would think it would be cause for celebration."

"So why the continuing, unrelenting pressure to promote trigger locks – which will certainly result in the deaths of many innocent people who are unable to defend themselves because of a trigger lock? Why are those who buy firearms for protection now paying extra for trigger locks that could, if used, counteract the very purpose for which the weapon was obtained?"

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Why does hypocrisy from the Left continue to surprise people. They have long been the people of "do as I say, not as I do", and they have no qualms about it whatsoever because they're special and little people like us should try and understand that.

Now that possessing a handgun is illegal in San Francisco, can Dianne Feinstein go home again?

No denying link between athletes and guns

"Somehow, guns have become part of the culture of American sports. That doesn't mean the athletes are necessarily doing anything illegal or anything wrong. And this isn't about gun control or the Bill of Rights. But athletes apparently are becoming more and more well-armed, as part of a trend, and that often is leading to trouble."
 

Larry Pratt: Another Reason Not to Live in San Francisco

"San Franciscans have shown just how detached from reality is their socialist world view. Their vote to disarm themselves follows on the heels of the lesson that even Bill O’Reilly learned from Katrina. The popular Fox TV host, no gunslinger he, seems to have had an epiphany in the lawlessness (official and otherwise) in New Orleans."

"'Once I saw what happened in Hurricane Katrina,' O’Reilly opined. 'I said every American household should have a firearm. If there's a tremendous earthquake in San Francisco and looting, you don't want your family protected? You don't want a firearm in your house? You're living in the world of Oz.'"

"Instead of my taking my rifle, I’ll be out there with my old Ithaca Deerslayer that still shoots the 12-gauge lead slugs. I don’t need a rifle to hunt around here — after all, the average deer shot is probably only about 40 yards. Whenever hunting in the Adirondacks, I have always used a rifle, and the shots are no longer up there, but why here?"

"When Tyler Maxwell fired off the shot that brought down an elk near here earlier this week, nearby homeowner Tim Plaska was on the phone almost immediately with game wardens to complain about the proximity to his home."

"Plaska, however, quickly learned Maxwell had broken no laws and had, in fact, been quite meticulous about making sure his shot was safe. It still didn't sit well with Plaska, who thought the law prevented someone from firing a high-powered rifle within a quarter-mile of a home." ...

"According to him, he was the biggest proponent for the New Paltz Police Department's two tactical officers, lobbying to equip them with anything and everything they wanted, including the AR15 assault rifle. Still, he is alarmed by the town board's decision on Thursday, Nov. 10, to allocated funds for four more AR15 rifles to upgrade the New Paltz Police Department's arsenal, replacing the less accurate pump-action shotgun."

"THE number of offences involving firearms in England and Wales has been increasing each year since 1997, according to the Home Office."

"Firearms incidents recorded by the police have nearly trebled in eight years."

"Provisional figures released last month showed that firearms offences had increased by 5 per cent on last year, to a total of 11,160. There were 4,903 such offences in 1997."

"The possession of handguns was banned in Britain that year after the Dunblane massacre. Yet the illegal ownership of handguns is believed to be higher than it has ever been, with nearly 300,000 illegal guns estimated to be in circulation."
