"To start off, I’ll offer a little background about myself and hopefully you can fully appreciate my view. I’m a 23 year old college student in a very liberal town, Boone, in a not so liberal state, North Carolina. I live off campus in 'student living' that is in no way affiliated with the school, but is targeted (no pun intended) by college students and is marketed that way. Boone is home to Appalachian State University ... Since 2007, the University has exploded in popularity and the town has doubled in size, the majority of which are college students. Now that that’s out of the way, I’m about to tell you what I think is the problem with guns . . ." ...

"Much to her surprise, a Texas law professor's statement that it's time to consider replacing the Second Amendment has unleashed a storm of controversy." ...

"[Mary Margaret] Penrose, whose areas of concentration include constitutional law, said she supports a states'-rights approach to the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution."

"States, not the federal government, should be able to decide who has guns and how those weapons should be used, she said."

"'Not one place did I suggest there should be a gun ban,' Penrose said Monday by phone."

"Her viewpoint has been mischaracterized as antigun, she said." ...

"Yesterday, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) got in on the act, on both Facebook and Twitter, hysterically shrieking that 'Ronald Reagan had no problem signing this legislation 25 years ago. There's no excuses [sic] to avoid doing so now.' ..." ...

"The 'Undetectable Firearms Act' expires at the end of this year, and Democrats are aflutter over the idea that scary plastic guns could soon be making their way onto the market. As proof that the law is urgently needed, they keep holding up Cody Wilson’s 3D printed Liberator handgun to illustrate the frightening future that they hope to legislate away. But the more they use that example, the more it becomes obvious that they have no idea how to handle the home-built firearms revolution and it’s scaring the ever-living crap out of them . . ." ...

"Please know that my position on the topic of the Second Amendment and gun ownership have not been made in haste. I have done some significant study and research in the past few years — most notably since my election to the Legislature.

"The second: What happens in New York City usually can only happen in New York City, and is best kept there."

Just ask Democrat Pete Lagiovane, the mayor of this Franklin County town who won't return to office in January. He lost his bid for re-election — to a seat he won unopposed the last time — in part because he signed up Chambersburg as one of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun cities." ...

"On one side of the store you take care of your health; on the other you tend to your personal safety and hunting needs. And through a convenient side door is a new 18-lane shooting range. A wall-sized sign greets visitors: 'Guns and Drugs.' Welcome to Texas!"

"Of course, Texas has no monopoly on the casual integration of firearms into ordinary public life, a 'normalization' that makes a pharmacy/gun shop seem not all that strange." ...
