"'Guns Save Lives Day,' observed Sunday in conjunction with Bill of Rights Day, was a huge success, the Second Amendment Foundation said today."

Gottlieb said preliminary data indicates that more than 20 million people saw or heard the organization's 'Guns Save Lives' advertisements on cable television or radio, more than 46,000 people voted in the opinion poll supporting the right of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves from violent crime, and more than 90,000 people signed an on-line Gun Rights petition." ...

"Around the country gun rights groups and citizens who support the Second Amendment ... asked of law enforcement when told they would have to abide by new restrictions on their rights, 'What if we say no? Are you going to kill us? We have already told you we would never give up any gun or obey any new restriction. We will defy you to the bitter end. So, are you prepared to kill us in your attempt to enforce your unconstitutional laws on citizens who have never broken the law? And, are you prepared to live with the consequences?'"

"None of the new laws ... would have prevented the shooter in Sandy Hook from perpetrating the massacre. So why are ordinary citizens ... being targeted for these new restrictions?" ...

"The Heller Foundation’s John Johnson writes:"

"In many cases, the recent spate of MDA (Mothers Demand Action) meetings is exactly what it appears to be – astroturf events rolled out by big money anti-freedom activists like Michael Bloomberg. The motions of these events are set to be on par with Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.), while appealing to the social justice bent of the civil rights movement. However, they are actually corporate sponsored skirmishes; with little, to no true moral framework. The end game is to remove firearms from the public – and they’ll use any tragedy involving guns to get their way. Basically it’s just deception masked as a grassroots movement . . ." ...

But just as the consensus about the need for more gun control in urban sectors breaks down once you leave the suburbs and head into the exurbs and rural areas, the same might be said about peacekeepers.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition, that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story, who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. If men are to wait for liberty till they become wise and good in slavery, they may indeed wait forever. — LORD THOMAS MACAULAY
