You don’t have ‘Constitutional Rights’

"You do not have constitutional rights."

"You just have rights."

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights ..."

"Unalienable: not capable of being repudiated."

"You don't worship as your conscience dictates because the Bill of Rights says you can. You don't speak your mind because of a grant from the government. You don’t defend your life, family and property because the framers saw fit to write the Second Amendment."

"Most Americans hold a seventh grade civics notion that the Constitution gives us certain rights. In fact, the Bill of Rights merely sets limits on the federal government ..." ...

Washington Post wonders if gun rights advances are responsible for police deaths

"In the wake of last week's fatal shooting of a Virginia Tech policeman, and his murderer's subsequent suicide, comparisons to 2007's massacre at that school were inevitable, as were attempts by the forcible citizen disarmament lobby to exploit this new puddle of blood to dance in."

"An editorial in the Washington Post over the weekend started with a discussion of Officer Deriek W. Crouse's murder at VA Tech, and then moved on to cover law enforcement deaths nationwide, particularly the third or so of which that are caused by gunfire. That number went up in 2010, and again this year, and in speculating on the reason for the spike, WaPo's editorial board predictably hypothesized that perhaps it's gun rights that are responsible:" ...

"A 'minute of angle' is a technical term used to describe how far from the point of aim a bullet deviates after being fired, but it can be boiled down to landing your shots within a 1 inch circle. This 1 inch circle at 100 yards is the gold standard for 'accurate' rifles, and firearms that can perform this feat are highly prized. Weatherby produces a modified version of their Vanguard line of firearms branded as 'SUB-MOA' that claim to be able to accomplish this feat straight out of the box. Naturally we couldn't let them get away with making untested claims, so they sent us one for testing." ...

"The ergonomics of the Gen4 pistol have been refined by adding a Multiple Back Strap (MBS) system to the grip of the pistol. Each Gen4 comes with three difference grip options: a short, medium and large size, enabling the pistol to adapt to each individual shooter’s hand size with the removal and insertion of a single pin. In addition, the grip has also been given a new Rough Textured Frame (RTF) to increase grip traction." ...

... "A reporter asked [Bloomberg] if Washington had made any recent progress in cracking down on illegal gun sales, giving the mayor an opening to talk about one of his marquee issues.

"'This year, we, a lot of people, helped in keeping Congress from passing this Right to Carry bill, where every state would have to recognize the carry laws in other states,' the mayor responded. 'And there are some states that have no laws, so it would essentially mean everybody could carry a gun anyplace no matter what state laws were, and Congress did not pass it.'" ...

... "Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan is reported to have once said: 'You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts,' but Mr. Ash (may I call you Bernard?) certainly seems to be providing his own facts in this piece. To start with, the New Hampshire legislature is not proposing to allow guns in elementary schools. In fact the bill (H.B. 334) is simply a statewide preemption law which basically states that rules regarding gun ownership, carrying, taxing, etc. will now be set by statute instead of (in the case of state colleges and universities) by bureaucratic fiat. This bill will have the effect of allowing law-abiding permit holders to carry on campus but that’s not its primary purpose." ...

"Just as gas taxes (theoretically, but that's another post) pay for roads, property taxes pay for community services and the Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax goes for conservation and wildlife restoration, anyone who wishes to rely solely upon the police for defense against crime should have to pay a Defenselessness Tax to cover the increased costs to municipalities of protecting their sorry butts. Like property taxes the DT would depend in part on the area you live in, with residents of high-crime neighborhoods obviously paying more.

To me, a 'reasonable' gun law is one that limits punishment for each violation to no less than 30 years and no more than 50 years in prison for any government official or employee who uses or proposes to use the color of law or authority to in any way restrict an individual's ability to manufacture, purchase, own, sell, carry or transport arms of any type. Arms being defined as any weapon type used at the company level of any nation’s regular military forces.
