... "According to Charles Hanson's book, 'The Northwest Gun' the Plains Indians preferred a smoothbore flintlock 'Tradegun' over rifles. ... According to the book the preferred calibers for their smoothbores were in the 28-gauge and 20-gauge range. And they hunted buffalo and grizzlies on a regular basis."

"Every survivalist should have a shotgun. Nothing is more useful or versatile to bring home meat for the pot. A good used single shot can often be found for under $100 and anyone selling any type of ammunition will carry at least a few sizes and weights of shot shells. For barter purposes in a post collapse economy, a few extra boxes of 12-guage shotgun shells would be a smart investment." ...

"Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, issued the following statement:"

"'Representative Julia Carson was an amazing woman, a fearless advocate who opened doors her entire life. I was privileged to be able to know her and work with her over many years. She cared about the poor, she cared about the disenfranchised, and she worked hard to combat the gun violence and crime that so unfairly impacts the most vulnerable people in our communities.'" ...

"You shouldn't need a weapon to go hunting for Christmas presents. But anxious shoppers, trying to ensure their own safety could wind up more sorry than safe if they're locked-and-loaded when they head for the shopping mall. The fear some have after the shooting rampage at an Omaha mall is certainly understandable. The potential for an accidental shooting putting them or a fellow shopper in a hospital or early grave seems much more likely than dropping a deranged maniac or mugger." ...
 

NRA lead gun owners to slaughter with HR 2640

"An email from Gun Owners of America (GOA) regarding the passage of HR 2640 in the Senate is shown below. IMHO, we, the gun owners of America, were sold down the river by the NRA (National Rifle Association), AGAIN! When are we going to learn that NRA is NOT adequately looking out after us legislatively! Otherwise HR 2640 wouldn’t have gotten passed and the NRA would be speaking out against Michael J. Sullivan (’Chappaquiddick’ Kennedy’s best bud) as Director of the ATF."

"The NRA doesn’t speak out (when the GOA, JPFA, and CCRKBA have) because the SOB (Son Of a Bush) appointed (via erstwhile AG, Gonzales) Sullivan as acting Director. The NRA is in the neo-con’s (neo-Jacobins) coat pocket (and I will leave that there.) ..." ...

"The National Rifle Association has done it."

"Again."

"Having advertised itself for more than a century as the nation's foremost defender of the Second Amendment, the NRA has once again given aid and comfort to politicians -- all of the 'usual suspects': Carolyn McCarthy, Charles Schumer, Patrick Leahy, Harry Reid, and that perennial Judas goat John Dingell -- as well as to pressure groups like the Brady Campaign, who are determined to destroy that right, by assisting passage of a law with the potential to strip hundreds of thousands of military veterans of their basic right to own and carry weapons."

"This latest slap in the gun owner's face by the overstuffed suits at the NRA ... establishes the 'principle' that individuals with the slightest of mental health 'problem' (anyone, for instance, who ever sought professional help for mild depression or difficulty sleeping) have no inalienable right to self-defense." ...
 

The Supreme Court should uphold the District of Columbia gun ban

... "The court should uphold the district's law banning handgun possession by its residents for constitutional and public safety reasons."

"The overwhelming historical evidence and weight of judicial precedent support the position that the Second Amendment was intended and designed to protect a militia-based right." ...

"There is also strong scholarship to support the argument that James Madison wrote the amendment primarily to allay Southern fears that Congress would undermine the slave system by disarming the militia — thereby denying the Southern states an effective means of slave control. Under this longstanding interpretation of the amendment, the District's handgun ban would survive."

"The Supreme Court recently agreed to rule on the specific meaning of the Second Amendment ..."

"Many gun-control advocates claim that this grants a 'collective' right ... and does not grant an 'individual' right to gun ownership. The position that the Second Amendment only guarantees a collective right is wholly incorrect, especially when one examines the rest of the Bill of Rights."

"The Founders chose the words 'the people'; the same as in the First, Fourth, Ninth and Tenth amendments."

"Had the drafters wanted to acknowledge the right to keep and bear arms for anyone other than individuals, they would have undoubtedly written that it is the right of 'the militia' to keep and bear arms."

"Mitt Romney who just recently claimed that he had received a NRA endorsement, is now recanting his story on his father marching with Martin Luther King. His father now only figuratively walked with Dr. King."

"Now understanding that Governor Romney is delusional, it now explains his glowing endorsement of Acting ATF Director Michael J. Sullivan:" ...

"Here is the interview on Meet the Press, he now calls Extreme Weapons, 'Weapons of Unusual Lethality' (he has stated before that he would regulate Weapons of Unusual Lethality and Power):"

"It is telling that his Town Hall Events are titled Ask Mitt Anything, instead of Ask Mitt the Truth. ..." ...

"The first thing I learned from driving around Nevada with Ron Paul for a couple of days: People really hate the Federal Reserve. ..." ...

"Ron Paul is deeply square, and every bit as deeply committed to your right not to be. 'I don't gamble, but I'm the gambler's best friend,' he says, boasting of his support for online casinos. He is a Second Amendment absolutist who doesn't own a gun. 'I've only fired one a couple of times in my life. I've never gotten around to killing anything.' It's an impressively, charmingly principled world view, though sometimes you've got to wonder how much Paul has in common with many of the people who support him." ...

"One of our supporters shared a system he uses to find out if a politician is being honest with him. We share the letter with you...... Let us know your results!"

"This is my method of flushing out the two-way rhetoric of elected officials; I send a response immediately complimenting them on the decision to follow my wishes, even though they have not so stated. In the past, about 50/50, they come back emphasizing their neutral position with more pandering, patronizing rhetoric or, hopefully, a stated position. A reversal of the game they like to play with us. ..." ...

"Standing up for the rights of gun owners, Congressman Zack Space (OH-18) today announced the introduction of the Comprehensive Firearms Reform Act of 2007. Space’s legislation would strike a blow against the excessive infringement of Second Amendment rights at the hands of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE)." ...

"This legislation would:"

"Create a system to provide more flexibility in punishing those who violate gun sales laws."

"Establish a solid legal requirement for determining the willful violation of the law."

"Creates specific sentencing guidelines for dangerous felons convicted of a gun offense." ...

"I frankly have serious doubts about whether any amount of 'reforming' the BATFE can go far enough--there's certainly no way to 'reform' away the fact that the very reason for the agency's existence is to infringe on that which . . . shall not be infringed. Still, I suppose that any effort to rein in our noble and courageous stompers of kitties is worthy of support."

"Such an effort is apparently being made now, in the form of H.R. 4900, the 'Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Reform and Firearms Modernization Act of 2007' (text not yet available) [Update: according to this, the actual title of H.R. 4900 is the 'Comprehensive Firearms Reform Act of 2007'] ..." ...

"Here is the response from Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison in regards to Acting ATF Director Michael J. Sullivan confirmation. Hutchison has a B rating from GOA and has been at the forefront of important Second Amendment issues."

"Senator Hutchison, may not be aware that from 1994-2005 the number of Licensed dealers in Texas dropped 76%. From a whopping 18,041 to a measly 4,261 and the number of license revocations is up nearly 6 times from 2001-06."

"Although I myself voted for Bush twice, I have to seriously question his judgment on choices to run the ATF. First there was Carl Truscott, who continued the Clinton agenda of eliminating gun dealers and manufacturers, violated ethics rules and overspent millions to create an empire."

"Now we have Sullivan who has refused to curb ATF abuse ..." ...
 

New ATF Reform act introduced

FULL TEXT BELOW:

NRA has announced that Representatives Steve King and Zach Space, have introduced HR 4900 which is the BATFE Reform and Firearms Modernization Act of 2007.

This is similar to the HR 5092 BATFE Modernization and Reform Act of 2006, our Attorney had spoken before the House Judiciary Committee to report on the abuses of the ATF. HR 5092 received Bi-partisan support and passed, then Anti-gun Senator Dianne Feinstein held it up indefinitely in the Senate, effectively killing it.

Congress and the Department of Justice have rebuked the ATF for failing to establish fines and suspensions for dealers and just revoking dealers licenses. This will also finally establish the meaning of WILLFUL, rather than the ATF using its own definition.

The very aged and crippled have been obliged to forget their years and their infirmities, and shoulder their muskets for the general safety..."

"Senator John Cornyn sends a letter similar to fellow Texas Senator Hutchison, Cornyn who has an A rating from GOA and an A rating from the NRA. Yet the number of Gun dealers in Texas has dropped 76% from 1994-2005 and the number of license revocations are up nearly 6 times."

"Cornyn does hit on an important point in the letter, there are 2 different areas that the ATF enforce. One area is criminal (violent crime, gangs, etc.) and the other area is regulation (ensuring dealers and manufacturers are in compliance)."

"The issue is that Maximum Mike and the ATF seem to be unable to distinguish between the two areas. ..." ...

"Sgt. Andrew Smith and his 2nd Marine Headquarter Group, Team 22, will ship out to Anbar province Jan. 6 for a planned seven-month deployment assisting the Iraqi Highway Patrol."

"The 13 marines in the group have decided they need a special sight on their sidearms that the government doesn’t provide."

"The sights are too expensive for the marines to buy themselves."

"So Smith's grandmother, Lucile Frost, decided to organize a fund-raiser to try to provide the sights to the men. Mrs. Frost and her husband, Bill, own Bill’s Gun and Saddle Shop." ...

"The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission voted Thursday to allow hunters with concealed carry licenses to possess concealed handguns in situations when possessing firearms is otherwise prohibited."

"Specifically, the new regulation will allow concealed handguns on wildlife management areas and AGFC-owned lakes, said Doyle Shook, chief of the AGFC’s wildlife management division. It also will allow concealed handguns to be carried by licensees during archery deer season, muzzleloader deer season and archery turkey season. Currently, hunters cannot possess centerfire weapons of any kind during those seasons." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's. — Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp
