"The City of Seattle has petitioned the state Supreme Court in an effort to resurrect its city parks gun ban after losing the battle twice to the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and the National Rifle Association, in King County Superior Court and at the State Court of Appeals."

"This column discussed that court ruling in October."

"SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb told this column Thursday that 'If they want to go to that expense, we'll be happy to beat them again. It’s entirely possible that the Supreme Court will decline to review the case, because the Appeals Court panel ruling was unanimous.'" ...

"A gun company advertisement that warns of impending gun control compares President Obama to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin."

"The USAAmmo ad shows side-by-side pictures of Obama with Hitler, Stalin and other dictators who committed atrocities across the world. The ad, which is also accompanied by a video, warns that gun control is imminent and foreshadows that the U.S. could face millions in casualties if they are not allowed to defend themselves."

"USAAmmo states that 'tyranny is knocking down the doors of American cities daily' and that Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and other gun control advocates 'are secretly conspiring American Citizens of the right to bear arms.'" ...

"While Williams and USAAmmo make some misinformed statements with regard to President Obama ... and the ad is over the top, the message is important. First, it isn't socialism that is threatening this country, but rather fascism, and Obama's policies are more fascist than socialist. He was, after all, financed by the big banks and is beholden to the military-industrial-complex and the corporate class. That being said, the issue of gun control in the context of America today is of utmost importance." ...

The KSG has at least three major advantages over any other home defense or tactical shotgun currently on sale to U.S. consumers. For one thing, the Kel-Tec KSG sends a message to all other home defense shotguns: get small or go home . . ." ...

What are the reasons to choose one over the other? I know velocity and range are factors, but does a 24″ barrel really give that much more performance over a 20″?"

"When it became clear in the early fall of 2008 that Barack Obama, son of a Kansan and a Kenyan, would be the 44th President of the United States, many citizens rushed to their gun shops, stocked up on ammo and camo, and tried to fortify their nests with all manner of lethal weapons."

"Though he had said nothing about gun control in the campaign, Obama, to a certain kind of person, appeared to be a grave threat to the Second Amendment ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Yes, he did "appear" to be a threat to gun rights. To "a certain kind of person" his actions as a legislator:

  • Opposed bill okaying illegal gun use in home invasions.
  • Ok for states & cities to determine local gun laws.
  • FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban.
  • April 2008: "Bittergate" labeled Obama elitist.
  • Respect 2nd Amendment, but local gun bans ok.
  • Provide some common-sense enforcement on gun licensing.
  • 2000: cosponsored bill to limit purchases to 1 gun per month.
  • Stop unscrupulous gun dealers dumping guns in cities.
  • Keep guns out of inner cities--but also problem of morality.
  • Bush erred in failing to renew assault weapons ban.
  • Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions.
  • Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
  • Voted YES on Kennedy amendment that would have banned most rifle ammunition.
  • Did not sign amicus brief supporting the individual rights view in Heller v. DC
  • Voted to ban gun stores within 5 miles of a school or park which would have eliminated most gun stores in America
  • Supported new 'improved' "assault weapons" ban
  • Supported legislation to "close the gun show loophole" which would have imprisoned show organizers if a single person at a show offered a gun for sale privately.

spoke more to his feeling on the Second Amendment than any self-serving statements made on the campaign trail.

"Gun control groups have a multitude of reason to be pleased with Obama (see below), and any efforts over the next year by gun control extremist groups to make the electorate believe they are less than satisfied with Obama will be a part of the effort to fool pro-gun voters, just as the now-defuct American Hunters and Shooters Association as set up to do for Obama in 2008."

"Despite their feigned frustration, there can be no doubt the Brady Campaign is actually quite satisfied with Obama - a fact that will be born out when they endorse him again in 2012."

[Note: This sentence was often quoted in the Revolutionary period. It occurs even so early as November, 1755, in an answer by the Assembly of Pennsylvania to the Governor, and forms the motto of Franklin's "Historical Review," 1759, appearing also in the body of the work. — Frothingham: Rise of the Republic of the United States, p. 413. ]
