... "I'd like Romero to tell all of us, because guess who comes out looking like the intolerant, closed-minded bigot in a match-up between a prominent gun rights activist and a top 'progressive'?" ...

Submitter's note: Thursday's Gun Rights Examiner column urges open-mindedness to our antagonists. I guess whether that ends up meaning literally is up to them.

Of Torches and Pitchforks

... "We fought a bloody revolution against the British that America might become a nation of laws. The Founders ... carefully constructed a Constitution that would ensure there would never again be need for armed revolution in America. That is, so long as the Constitution is never violated; to guard against usurpation of that sacred document, the Second Amendment guarantees the rights enshrined therein." ...

"Politicians should have nightmares about torches and pitchforks advancing on Washington. As Thomas Jefferson said, 'when the government fears the people, there is liberty.' ..." ...
 

American Hunters and Shooters: Another faux gun group bites the dust?

"In 2000, Monster.com billionaire Andrew McKelvey committed more than $12 million toward the creation of the 'Americans for Gun Safety.' McKelvey had always donated to Handgun Control Inc., but eventually decided that the gun control movement's best chance of success was going to come about by fooling Americans into thinking they were actually pro-gun." ...

"Now, much like the now-defunct AGS and FSA, as well as the inactive GunGuys blog, it appears yet another faux gun group has disappeared into the ether." ...

"I need a break from dissecting the endless nonsense from the 'news' media. It's the same old same old -- the global Muslim jihad is disguised as 'terrorism,' political coverage is a horse race with little factual content allowed; abject silliness and fluff is presented as 'news' virtually non-stop; statist (government) perspective permeates so much of the material." ...
 

Five Problems with Active Shooter Lockdown Drills

"'While most states require security drills up to three times a year, a new law in New Jersey says all schools must hold them once a month,' nj.com reports. 'In addition to monthly fire drills.' And I might add, actual lockdowns. Every day, I see stories of school lockdowns. Like, say, this one [via pittsburghlive.com]: 'A 12-year-old boy pointed fake guns at the Clairton Education Center on Wednesday, prompting school officials to lock down the campus for nearly two hours.' While schools are far more likely to face an active shooter than a fire, I have some problems with lockdowns and lockdown drills . . ." ...
 

The Myth of Muscle Memory

"There’s no such thing as muscle memory. Literally speaking, your muscles don’t have memory. Nor do they operate independently. Your brains sends your muscles a signal to move. They move. Gun gurus and their acolytes use the term 'muscle memory' to refer to unconscious or subconscious muscle movement. The term reflects their deeply held believe that gunfighters should train to their subconscious mind to the point where they can respond to a crisis without conscious command or control. ..." ...
 

Gun Violence Victims Deserve "Do Something" Congress

"An angry electorate… More divided than during the Bush years… Marked by nasty ads and commentary, over-the-top rhetoric, and even violence."

"These are just some of the ways that political observers have described American voters and the 2010 mid-term elections." ...

"While the number-crunching and analysis for the mid-terms will go on for weeks and maybe months, it already seems clear that the Democrats incurred huge losses in the House largely because they abandoned their base, which overwhelmingly backs stricter gun laws." ...

... "We need to get serious about smart and effective gun-control legislation. Obvious starts such as closing the 'Gun Show Loophole,' which allows the sale of guns at gun shows without background checks or record-keeping, must be coupled with more funding for cities and states to enforce controls already in effect. Such measures do not mean the end of guns in America as NRA doomsayers would have people think. Most guns should remain available upon a thorough background check and waiting period. However, the notion that anyone has a use for a semi-automatic machine gun for recreational purposes is absurd ..." ...

Submitter's Note: No, what is absurd is someone this pig-ignorant pretending to be a journalist.

... "Although Caldwell said he believes that those who wish to obtain a concealed-carry license may do so, he does not think this is best solution for preventing violence."

"'Allowing students to carry handguns on campus is not the best way to prevent violence on campus,' Caldwell said. 'A school that thinks students carrying handguns on campus will prevent violence is creating a gray area between police officers and vigilantes.'" ...

Submitter's Note: No matter how many times you try to conflate self-defense with vigilantism, they are completely different animals.

... "Kansas passed a similarly perplexing 'right to bear arms' amendment for their constitution by 89 percent, despite every Supreme Court ruling that interprets the Second Amendment as protecting an individual's right to own and use a gun for legal purposes." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Actually what the KS referendum did was to clarify the RKBA provision in their constitution in order to align it with the recent Second Amendment Foundation's SCOTUS victories in Heller and McDonald.

"An attempted home-invasion robbery in east Tacoma on Wednesday morning left a resident injured, one of the intruders dead from a gunshot wound and a second intruder at large."

"At about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, two men with masks, black clothing and handguns forced their way into a couple's home, according to The News Tribune of Tacoma. The masked men woke the residents and demanded to know where they kept jewelry and a safe. They pistol-whipped one of the residents until his girlfriend reached under the bed for a shotgun and passed it to him. The resident and the intruders exchanged gunfire." ...

"On the federal side, gun owners did quite well here in Illinois."

"ISRA FEDPAC preferred and endorsed Congressional candidates Joe Walsh (8th), Randy Hultgren (14th) and Bobby Schilling (17th) replaced anti-gunners Bean, Foster and Hare, moving the entire Illinois delegation much more into the pro-gun camp. ..."

"In Illinois races, the majority of ISRA-PVF endorsed and preferred candidates were victorious in their respective races. Even in cases where our preferred candidates lost, they were quite often defeated by candidates who are equally pro-gun."

"The race for governor is a different matter. ..." ...

"Rich Burgess was drinking coffee and working on his laptop at the Old Saybrook Starbucks when several cops approached him about the gun he was carrying. ..." ...

"After checking with headquarters, the cops let Burgess go, but not before trying to understand his motivation."

"'I can't imagine any reason why I would not conceal,' one cop said. 'What’s your logic for not concealing?'"

"'I don’t have to have a reason,' responds Burgess. 'I'm honest and open about everything ...'" ...

Submitter's Note: When MN cops ask me about this I tell them that carrying openly is bad tactically, but strategically, the more people see people openly carrying, the less ignorance and suspicion there will be.

"Will County prosecutors have decided not to appeal a judge's decision to dismiss an illegal gun charge against former Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson."

"Judge RIchard Schoenstedt ruled earlier this month that prosecutors had failed to prove Peterson's semiautomatic rifle wasn't protected under a federal law ... Authorities had charged Peterson in 2008 with possessing a Colt AR-15 with an 11½-inch barrel that is illegal under state law."

"What’s the trick to training a dog? Buy the right dog. What’s the trick to choosing men and women capable of handling lethal force on society’s behalf? Hire the right people. Obviously, that’s easier said than done ... policeone.com offers a glossy profile of your average California 'volunteer' cop. The Porter Country post-trib.com provides a far less flattering insight into the caliber of cop inducted in California’s reserve police force. And the irresponsible attitude of the man responsible for the reserve officer’s negligent discharge . . ." ...

"Once upon a time, there was a land called the United States where many laws were made in order to help keep order and protect the citizens. One of those laws was called the Second Amendment, and it allowed the people of this land to own guns in order to protect themselves."

"All fairy tales aside, the Second Amendment is real and it still exists … sort of." ...
