... "For years now, since around 2003, I have been writing how 90 million gun owners must have the affirmation of their right to carry a concealed or open carry handgun wherever they have a right to be. This is because the affirmed citizen is an asset to a community, and as such, must be affirmed in places presently restricted to honest citizens. This freedom becomes a problem for bureaucracies who compete for the affections of the sovereign." ...

"The upcoming Thanksgiving Day and the holiday season is a time that I pause to give thanks each year. Typically this time of year my spare time is spent in the field hunting. Of course the Ohio deer season provides ample time for reflection from my deer stand. Whether or not game is harvested, there is always something to celebrate for my time spent outdoors." ...

"From deliberate disregard for Second Amendment rights in the aftermath of Katrina, to food co-ops being forcibly shut down by police SWAT teams, Americans are seeing more and more examples of the flagrant abuse of power by civil authorities. They watch as those they elected to Congress and the White House defiantly disregard the will of the people and instead govern through unconstitutional means." ...

"I've been around guns all my life. ... The main thing I learned about firearms from my background and experience: I have a lifetime of learning ahead of me. I now have four children, three of whom are old enough to learn about guns. As a man who knows his limitations, I’ve been searching for good sources to further my shooting skills and serve as a baseline for properly teaching the ropes to my children. I know that a professional instructor is the correct answer. But my range is too far away, and all of our schedules preclude anything consistent. So, I looked to the net . . ." ...

"In an essay for a college English class, Charles Whittington Jr. opened up about his feelings about his time in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan."

"'Killing becomes a drug, and it is really addictive. I had a really hard time with this problem when I returned to the United States, because turning this addiction off was impossible,' Whittington wrote in the essay for his class ..." ...

"In June, State Sen. Eric Schneiderman’s attempt to pass a bill requiring semi-automatic weapons to be equipped with microstamping technology came up two votes short, thanks to strong opposition from the gun lobby."

"That may be about to change: Not only is Schneiderman about to become the attorney general, but the man he is succeeding, Andrew Cuomo, has come out strongly in favor of microstamping as well, calling it 'a common sense and low-cost method of expanding the ability of police to identify guns used in illegal activities.'" ...
-------

KABA Note: Antis keep claiming that this technology is "low cost", that it will only add a dollar or two to the price of a gun. Fine, let them put their money where their mouth is. Put it in the bill that the owners if the microstamping technology will be paid the sum of, heck, let's be generous and say $5 per microstamping firearm manufactured. In return for this, the technology owners will build, deliver, install, operate and maintain all the necessary equipment at any gun factory that requests it. In addition, they will pay the manufacturer for any lost production incurred as a result of installing, maintaining or operating this equipment. They will also reimburse manufacturers for any additional electric, water or other utility costs associated with the equipment. They will establish, maintain and operate the requisite databases so cops can access it 24/7 with no more than a 5 minute delay between call and answer, and will bear sole and full liability for any release or misuse of private information, and for any and all damages which result from incorrect or incomplete data.

Then, once they agree to all this, if the lege still wants their precious microstamping firearms legislation, then we'll tell them to stick it where the sun don't shine!

"In a 4-to-3 decision, the State Court of Appeals found that the five officers were within department guidelines when they returned fire on a robbery suspect who had opened fire on several officers. The suspect was killed, but police bullets also struck a 78-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman who was playing with her 18-month-old daughter." ...

"The taxpayers of Allentown just got stuck with an unnecessary $23,500 tab."

"That may not be much in a city that treats tax money like the water flowing over the Hamilton Street Dam (proposed new budget: $88.5 million), but it might have been avoided if people paid to enforce the law could be persuaded to obey it themselves."

"On Oct. 6, 2008, Jerry Corliss, a law-abiding citizen who then lived in Allentown, was carrying a Glock handgun in a holster when he visited the Home Depot store just off Lehigh Street. It appears that somebody there became hysterical over the idea that anyone not in government might exercise his or her right to bear arms." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing of concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. But it should not be forgotten, that it is not only a part of the right that is secured by the constitution; it is the right entire and complete, as it existed at the adoption of the constitution; and if any portion of that right be impaired, immaterial how small the part may be, and immaterial the order of time at which it be done, it is equally forbidden by the constitution. [Bliss vs. Commonwealth, 12 Ky. (2 Litt.) 90, at 92, and 93, 13 Am. Dec. 251 (1822)
