"Given the state in which we find our nation of late, it might seem difficult for a liberty loving patriot to think of much for which to be thankful. The fact remains, though, that things could be worse--vastly worse (and, admittedly, might still get vastly worse). One of the main reasons that the 'vastly worse' scenario has not yet become reality is that government officials cannot count on their own impunity--cannot rely on the notion that there is no line that they cannot cross without facing very personal consequences, courtesy of an angry--and armed--citizenry." ...

"Since the U.S. Supreme Court confirmed in two recent cases that the right to carry firearms under the Second Amendment applies to individuals, a multitude of local gun-control ordinances have been overturned, modified or dropped."

"Now, a new argument prepared by three legal experts goes further, arguing that the Second Amendment’s protection of 'arms' includes knives as well."

"The recent landmark Heller and McDonald case precedents could now be used against many local restrictions on carrying knives, the authors say." ...

I bet you watched all of Cody Wilson’s printing antics and the horror they elicited among the anti-gun community. But you may not have considered some of the greatest threats to the future of printing firearms. If you look in your safe, you’ll see their names printed all over your favorite firearms . . ." ...

"When you’re handloading ammunition, there has never really been a good way to check that all of the dimensions are correct. Sure you can grab your calipers and check every dimension of every finished round, but that’s time consuming and inefficient. Especially when you’re slicing up existing 5.56 brass into 300 BLK brass, you want to be doubly sure that your handloads will fit perfectly in the chamber without any issues. That’s where something like this slot gauge comes in handy, from Sheridan Engineering . . ." ...

"Don’t be too quick to go negative on Illinois businesses who have posted 'No Guns' signage."

"If it’s like the case in North Carolina, as reported by Sean D. Sorrentino at the North Carolina Gun Blog, it may be simply a case of gun hating bigots who have unilaterally decided to post their 'favorite' businesses without the business owner’s knowledge or consent.

"After having banned concealed carry in all of their stadiums, and even ordering women to give up their purse in favor of see-through plastic bags, (don’t ya feel safer now?) the NFL has accelerated its war on gun ownership and the Second Amendment by trampling on the First Amendment. The League has refused to air a commercial for Daniel Defense in the 2014 Super Bowl on grounds that the weapons manufacturer violates the NFL regulations for 'prohibited advertising categories'. Their rejection, however, appears rooted in political activism, rather than strict adherence to long standing advertising rules." ...

"The General Assembly believes so strongly in the Second Amendment — the right to keep and bear arms — that it won’t let law-abiding Ohioans carry firearms in the Statehouse. Most other places, almost anything goes."

"So, no surprise, Ohio’s House has passed Substitute House Bill 203, which further loosens Ohio’s concealed-weapons law. In due course, the bill will become law. As soon as it does, the handgun lobby will do what it always does: come back for more."

"The House passed the bill over strong objections from the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus. The caucus believes ... that House Bill 203 is 'Ohio’s version of the recently criticized (Florida) 'Stand Your Ground' law.'" ...

"Many proponents of unrestricted gun rights also claim to be strict constitutional constructionists. 'The right of the people to keep and bear arms' was written in the context of 18th century arms."

"The drafters and ratifiers of the Second Amendment to our U.S. Constitution were familiar with flintlock, muzzle-loading personal firearms that could fire one or two shots before requiring the arduous task of reloading. ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: The founders were also familiar with 6-shot pepper-box revolvers, 9-shot Lorenzoni principle pistols, or the similarly designed Cookson Volitional rifle, or the 'spray and pray' style Belton flintlock, or even the Girandoni Air Rifle which could fire 20+ shots before reloading.

"New Hampshire’s strong Second Amendment support helped push a 'Stand Your Ground' law over a governor’s veto, but a pair of bills limiting access to guns when mental health problems arise could test the state’s entrenched belief in unfettered gun rights."

"The bills will be considered next year in the aftermath of deadly shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and the Washington Navy Yard. They are among perhaps a dozen or more gun control-related bills ranging from banning assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines to forbidding such a ban if passed by Congress." ...

In that last venue – a lawsuit brought by the sheriffs and others alleging that measures limiting magazine size to 15 rounds and requiring universal background checks on all gun purchases violate Second Amendment protections – a judge has winnowed the issues to their core by ruling that the sheriffs lack standing to sue the state en masse. ..." ...

"And in at least four instances, it didn’t."
