"Here's the crux of what we need to know about them from their 'Positions' page:

"'HANDGUN CONTROL. The NBPA supports national handgun legislation prohibiting further manufacturing of handguns, and limiting their sales, possession, and use.' "

"Seems pretty definitive and 'Only One'-like, does it not? Presumably, if we say 'No,' they would support using police powers to enforce such edicts against their countrymen. And the Oath Keepers are the ones we're told are the dangerous extremists?"

"Santa Claus wears a holstered handgun and displays a grass-roots placard on an original postcard sent to all members of the Senate and House of Representatives by John M. Snyder. St. Nicholas leads a band of American citizens carrying similar placards defending traditional American values."

"A high resolution version of the image is available on request to gundean@gmail.com."

"The placards extol gun rights, economic rights, health rights and right to life."

"Snyder is the senior rights activist in Washington, according to Shotgun News." ...
 

Gun Control: Answering the L.A. Times Editorial against guns

"The L.A. Times has again unholstered its own big guns in an editorial against guns instead of crime. The Times goes into high altitude again about the wrong issue as most gun control misunderstanding does. As gun control claims to take aim at violence and winds up hitting innocent bystanders, their editorial disparages gun ownership instead of the man who shot four officers in Washington state."

"In today's top editorial, the Times draws down on gun owners by mocking '..America's love affair with guns.'" ...

"Between 2003 and 2008, women who hunted with firearms increased 3.5 percent to 2.9 million, according to new data from the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA). Women who participated in bowhunting rose 1.5 percent to 600,000 during that time."

"And according to the Shreveport Times, Louisiana can attest to the recent rise in female participation. This year alone, the number of women with hunting licenses jumped 12 percent there when compared to 2007-08." ...

"With the opening day of Ohio's deer-gun season on November 30, hunters are reminded that donating a deer is free at meat processors participating in the Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) venison donation program."

"Participating meat processors can be found by visiting the FHFH page at www.fhfh.org."

"The U.S. Supreme Court has set a date to hear the landmark civil liberties case that will determine whether the Second Amendment prohibits state and local governments from enacting stiff anti-gun laws."

"Oral arguments in the lawsuit, McDonald v. City of Chicago, will be held on the morning of March 2, 2010. A decision is expected by late June or early July."

"It's also worth noting the amicus briefs that have been filed in the last week or so in support of the Second Amendment Foundation and other groups challenging Chicago's handgun restrictions."

"There are at least 30 of them -- ably reposted at ChicagoGunCase.com -- plus two unaffiliated ones filed by the NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund and the Brady Center ..." ...
 

Defending gun rights by rejecting original intent?

"The upcoming McDonald v. City of Chicago case, to decide on the Constitutionality of (or, hopefully, lack thereof) Chicago's handgun ban, will also, of course, determine whether or not the Second Amendment is "incorporated" under the Fourteenth Amendment. In other words, since Heller already established that an outright handgun ban is not permissible under the Second Amendment, the question here is whether that amendment is to be enforced against state and local governments, as well as to the feds."

"As the Wall Street Journal pointed out a while back, some support for the gun rights side is coming from a somewhat surprising source." ...
 

New Bomb-Resistant Trucks Will Blast RPGs Before They Hit

"The U.S. military's toughest trucks are getting a new layer of protection — against rocket-propelled grenades. The Army recently awarded an $8 million contract to equip MRAP (mine resistant ambush protected) armored trucks with Iron Curtain. It's a protection system which blasts incoming rockets before they can hit the vehicle. If the system works, it could go all long way towards neutralizing one of the deadliest threats American troops face overseas."

"The contract calls for the Iron Curtain with Darpa's sniper-detection system, CROSSHAIRS. It detects and locates enemy shooters using radar and acoustic sensors, and is intended to work against Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs), missiles, bullets and mortar rounds. ..." ...

"The hunt for cop-killer Maurice Clemmons came to an end on a quiet residential Seattle street Tuesday morning, and there can be no question that the Pierce County man is responsible for the brutal murder of four Lakewood police officers barely 42 hours before he gasped his last breath on the pavement near a stolen car."

"He was fatally shot by a lone Seattle police officer checking on that car, which was still running. By all accounts, Clemmons approached that officer, who ordered him to stop and show his hands after recognizing the suspect from the wanted bulletin. When Clemmons did not comply and continued approaching, the officer fired. ..." ...

A police officer once described the two-part criminal justice system this way: “We arrest criminals, and then the lawyers figure out a way to get them back on the street.” Every time there’s another Maurice Clemmons story, this author hears those words again.

"Hammett, who was struck in the head and the neck with a club, was treated at University Medical Center in Dallas and was later released."

Alaska-carry legislation, be careful what you wish for

"Not only should we be careful in what we wish for, but we should be ever so diligent when drafting pro gun legislation. One of the greatest evils against the Bill of Rights is legislation that doesn't pass the constitutional test. This can happen even when the legislators have the best of intentions." ...

"Let's review Alaska-carry and the infringement on a citizen to inform a police officer that you have a firearm and how you must allow the officer to disarm you for their safety. Maybe that sounds good on the surface but does it pass the constitutional test? Absolutely not!"

"Alaska police officers regularly disarm law abiding citizens, taking their firearms and running the serial numbers through the system. ..." ...
 

AR: McDaniel takes lead

"It's more than four years before Dustin McDaniel, Mike Ross, Bill Halter and more seek to succeed Gov. Mike Beebe."

"But McDaniel has taken an early lead for the gun nut vote with a steady diet of opportunism and demagoguery ... Admittedly, McDaniel has all those sins of his father to live down for suing a gun manufacturer. Still, it's hard to get out front of Mike Ross on gun demagoguery."

"It's going to be a long four years. Today, read McDaniel's 'me-too' on the fight against home rule gun laws. It's nothing but judicial activism to override a couple of centuries of court precedent, in which McDaniel is in league with the nut wing of the U.S. Supreme Court. He should be proud." ...

"A New Jersey blogger about to stand trial on charges he made death threats against federal judges apparently was paid by the FBI in its battle against domestic terrorism, according to a published report."

"The Record of Bergen County reported Sunday that Hal Turner received thousands of dollars from the FBI to report on neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups and was sent undercover to Brazil."

"Turner also claims the FBI coached him to make racist, anti-Semitic and other threatening statements on his radio show, but the newspaper also found many federal officials were concerned that his audience might follow up on his violence rhetoric." ...

"When considering a charge of battery to a law enforcement officer, the officer must be in the course of performing official duties – but the officer need not be acting lawfully."

"In State v. Haywood[.pdf], 2009AP30, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals rejected a defendant's argument that an officer was not acting as a law enforcement agent when the officer improperly remained in the defendant's home." ...

"It's no secret that Arizona is in trouble. The state spends more money than it takes in - the latest estimate is that the budget is out of balance by over $2 billion. But despite the obvious challenges of the economy this past year, there have been some real gains in protecting liberty and preserving individual rights in the last legislative session." ...

"Those who know me know how I feel about the right to bear arms. In this last legislative session, we passed several bills that strengthen gun rights and protect gun owners in the exercise of the Second Amendment." ...
