Gungrabbers equate armed self-defenders with ‘executioners’

"Denial and misplacing blame seem to be common traits plaguing the gun ban crowd, and Haas is no exception. Her experience has turned her into not just a vocal anti-gunner, but one who regards the act of armed self defense as an act of evil..."

"For all intents and purposes, the 'rampage' happened in a 'gun free zone.' And the ruling class has just upped the odds in favor of the predators and against those they ostensibly represent by banning open carry. Which, based on who they elect to office suits 'the majority' of voters just fine..."

"David Codrea, columnist and gun rights advocate, discusses the 'Fast and Furious' scandal implicating several government departments in helping gunrunners buy guns in the US and transport them to Mexico (apparently in order to boost statistics on illegal gun use, in order to justify more restrictive domestic gun laws)."
 

Honduras: Honduras bans motorcycle passengers in anti-crime move

The Honduran Congress has voted to ban motorcyclists from riding with passengers in a bid to curb a spate of drive-by killings.

The move follows two high-profile murders this week, both blamed on gunmen on motorbikes.

Congress also approved a wiretapping law proposed as part of efforts to tackle crime but which has raised privacy concerns.

Submitter's note: I guess they already banned the guns.
 

Report: "Fast & Furious" Designed to Justify Gun Control

From the first moment that the American people became aware that senior BATFE officials ordered agents in the field to allow guns sold in the U.S. to be smuggled on an all-but-certain path to Mexico’s vicious drug cartels, many of us have wondered “why.” What possible legitimate purpose could be fulfilled by allowing a large number of guns—over 2,000, by some estimates—to disappear across our southwestern border without the Mexican government’s knowledge?
 

NRA: After "Fast & Furious," Eric Holder "Can't be Trusted"

So far, NRA, 52 U.S. Representatives, two U.S. Senators, and multiple GOP Presidential candidates have called on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign because of his role in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive’s failed “Operation Fast and Furious.” Holder has steadfastly maintained that he and top Department of Justice officials did not know the scope or details of the operation until they became public earlier this year, but this week, in advance of hearings before the House Judiciary Committee, Holder called the “gun-walking” tactic used in the operation “inexcusable” and “wholly unacceptable.” He went on to say that many of the “walked” guns will likely continue to show up at crime scenes in the U.S. and Mexico.
 

NC: In gun debate, here's food for thought

Providing the option to ban concealed-carry handguns from "recreational facilities" was a bad change to House Bill 650, which became law on Dec. 1. It should never have occurred. The inclusion of that provision was a lame attempt by ignorant state legislators to water down the bill. The personal choice of some state representatives to refrain from carrying a weapon for self-defense does not extend to allowing legislators to take that choice from other North Carolinians regardless of the location in question. So, yes, concealed carry should be allowed anywhere in a park.
 

U.N. de-funding bill picks up co-sponsors

Legislation that would strip U.S. funding from the United Nations if that world body adopts an international gun control treaty that threatens Second Amendment sovereignty is picking up co-sponsors and gathering Northwest support.

It is now no secret that the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms was deeply involved in helping draft H.R. 3594, which was submitted on Dec. 7 by Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh, who delivered the keynote address at the Gun Rights Policy Conference in late September in Chicago. The GRPC is co-sponsored by the CCRKBA, along with its sister organization, the Second Amendment Foundation.

“At a time when our constitutional freedoms are at stake,” Gottlieb concluded, “the only way to prevent their erosion by international treaty is to put in place the legislative mechanism to cut the U.N. off financially. We’re delighted that Walsh and nearly a dozen of his colleagues have the vision and intestinal fortitude to pursue that preventative measure. International gun grabbers need to keep their hands off of our Constitution, and out of our pockets.”
 

IL: Pike County will vote on concealed carry

Pike Countians will decide during the coming election whether to allow people to carry concealed weapons, but the decision will be moot because of state laws prohibiting such activity.

Illinois is among the only states that does not allow citizens to carry firearms in public. For Pike County resident Dan Mefford, this flies in the face of the Second Amendment.

That's why he and other supporters have filed a petition with the County Clerk to place a question allowing concealed carry on the primary ballot.
 

'Fast and Furious' Guns and Bureaucrats' Cock-and-Bull Stories

This crazy undercover scheme was run by a branch of the Department of Justice called the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives). It was known as "Project Gunrunner," or as it was called in Phoenix, Arizona, "Operation Fast and Furious."

What the ATF did was intentionally allow guns to be sold illegally, in hopes that they would be purchased by cartel operatives and smuggled into Mexico. The goal was to follow the weapons and catch "bigger fish."

The much-vilified gun dealers, by the way, didn't approve but were forced by the ATF to go along with it.
 

VA: Another shooting at VA Tech brings the issue of firearms to centerstage again

Among other issues that this latest gun-related killing brings to center-stage is the right for individuals to bear firearms on college campuses. The argument by those in favor of such a right claim that allowing non-felons to carry concealed firearms to campus would somehow reduce gun-related violence. Aside from being counterintuitive, however, this conclusion stems from little scientific evidence.

Gun control can prevent accidents, but can also cause them.

According to justfacts.com, in 2008 46 percent of deaths occurred with a firearm and 67 percent used a firearm for protection. If we can teach more people to properly use a firearm, there could be fewer deaths.

The table set up just outside the sanctuary at Greater Faith Missionary Baptist Church overflowed with guns of every size, shape and condition, but one in particular, a sawed-off shotgun, commanded the most attention.

The weapon appeared to be new, obviously well kept and deadly, more dangerous than the 89 others around it.

In January, the New Hampshire Legislature is lined up to be the next to confront the hotly debated subject of concealed carry on campus.

Passed by the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee in late October, HB 334 reasserts the state’s sole authority to regulate firearms and prevents the University System of New Hampshire from denying licensed, law-abiding citizens the option of carrying firearms for self-defense on university campuses.

Smithfield is infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners, a Four Oaks man told the town council on Tuesday.

Jeff Lawrence said he was disappointed in the council's response to House Bill 650, which became law Dec. 1. The law allows guns in parks but allows towns to ban them from "recreational facilities" like playgrounds, swimming pools and ball fields.

During a highly-publicized hearing on Thursday of this week, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wisconsin, dropped the dreaded 'I' word on Attorney-General Eric Holder. Sensenbrenner told Holder that unless satisfactory answers were provided to 'clean up the mess' left in the wake of the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, then impeachment would be considered as a possible consequence.
 

MN: New Ramsey County sheriff approves a higher percentage of gun applications than Fletcher

Minneapolis attorney Marc Berris used to joke that no client paid him quite like the Ramsey County sheriff's office.

For years, Berris made a killing by taking on former Sheriff Bob Fletcher. He brought Fletcher to court on behalf of clients who thought they were wrongly denied a permit to carry a weapon in public. When the judge agreed and Berris won - and he won often, he says - the county would foot the bill.

But Berris hasn't won a case this year. In fact, he hasn't brought a single case to court. He didn't need to.

Some of the platform’s 10 statements on issues of both local and national significance — such as the right to bear arms, the sanctity of marriage as a union between a man and a woman, and the need for an airtight path to legal citizenship — might, in the current political climate, seem far removed from the views of high-profile national Democrats like Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi or even President Obama.

We need to outlaw firearms in the hands of all civilians and start to collect every one of them and melt them down for railroad track. Yes. It would be a big job, but the longest journey begins with but a single step, in the right direction. The military and the police are the only people who should have them. No more guns!
