What Gun-Haters Feel

I don’t like horror movies. There is nothing attractive about sitting and waiting for the monster to jump out of the dark screen. Hoplophobes are people who have an irrational fear of firearms. What do they feel as they wait for their monster to attack?

People with irrational fears of guns express those fears in several ways. They may experience guns as having lives of their own. They think a gun will jump off the dark shelf and attack on its own.

Hoplophobes empower firearms in other ways. They invest these inanimate objects with the power to cloud men’s minds.

Hoplophobes claim that their uneasiness around armed civilians is more important than the right of ordinary people to be able to protect themselves.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday pardoned a Marine sergeant with New Hampshire ties over a gun charge.

Sgt. Joshua Velez, a Massachusetts resident who works as recruiter in New England, was arrested over Labor Day weekend after a traffic stop in the Garden State turned up an unloaded handgun in his vehicle's glove compartment.

Nicole Sizemore, Christie's deputy press secretary, said Velez is licensed to carry the handgun in Massachusetts, but was charged in New Jersey with unlawful possession of a handgun and hollow point bullets.

Yeah… it might be cathartic to think that these terrorizing little punks got their comeuppance, but the story isn’t true.

The “news” story hasn’t been verified by any credible news outlet in Melbourne or anywhere else, and a “weapons consultant for the military” Scotty Southam—more than likely a fake name—isn’t going to hurt anyone with his airsoft AR-15, featuring a magazine held together by screws.

Virginia's Attorney General said that concealed carry gun permits from 25 states are no longer valid in Virginia.

Virginia AG Mark Herring revoked concealed carry permit recognition from the other states, "because their laws are not sufficient to prevent someone who is disqualified under Virginia law from receiving a concealed handgun permit."

Among those who aren't permitted to carry concealed weapons in Virginia are convicted felons, people with court-ordered treatment for mental health or substance abuse, people with restraining orders or protective orders, people convicted of or charged with stalking, and anyone convicted of or charged with assault or sexual battery.

Whether it’s for sport or self defense, it seems firearms are a popular Christmas gift this year.

A number of gun store owners in Knoxville say it’s been a mix of people buying or getting firearms for the holidays including kids, women and men.

“He’ll be excited. He’s been bugging me about taking him hunting. So I’ve taken it one step at a time,” said Frankie Robinson.

Many law enforcement agencies around the country are asking qualified citizens to get their concealed carry license.

Now, an Oklahoma sheriff is making things a little easier for those residents who want to legally carry a weapon.

On Tuesday, the Garvin County Sheriff’s Office released a statement, saying officials will waive all sheriff’s fees associated with concealed carry licenses.
 

NBA Vows to Marginalize Pro Basketball By Pushing Gun Control On Fans

Gun ownership has hit record highs in the United States at the precise moment that per-capita firearms homicides are the lowest they’ve ever been in recorded history.

What a brilliant time for the National Basketball Association to stick it to their fan base by jumping on board for a gun control campaign with Michael Bloomberg’s often-discredited Everytown for Gun Safety.

If Hillary Clinton were to achieve her dream of capturing the White House in November, she would use her vast power to erase American liberty as we know it. Hillary’s record in targeting the First and Second amendments—the two amendments that inseparably protect all of our freedoms—sets her apart as the most anti-freedom candidate to run for the White House.

I am very pleased yet cautiously optimistic to see Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro’s call for reasonable gun control.

New Orleanians know all too the well the violence, loss of life and destruction of families that occur on a daily basis but rarely makes the national news. It is a sad state of affairs when as a nation we are so accustomed to mass shootings that even when a mass shooting occurs at a playground, if no one dies, it does not even register at the national level. Therefore, it is refreshing to see an elected official, who by his own admission “believes in the Constitution and in the Second Amendment in particular” call for gun control measures.
 

Terror Suspects' Right to Bear Arms Defended

With the shootings in San Bernardino, Calif., fueling panic about weapons access, a Second Amendment attorney has filed a federal class action to prevent background checks from weeding out at least 2,000 people on the terror watch list who bought guns legally.

"Being a named person on a 'terrorist watch list' is not a federal statutory disqualifying factor, nor should it be," the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Rochester states. "Permanent deprivation of a fundamental civil right cannot and should not occur because something as small as an alleged, anonymous tip places an individual in a secret database managed by the attorney general, the FBI, and/or the TSC to which the individual has no right of access and no method of recourse."

On Jan. 1, handguns across Texas will come out of hiding as the state’s new open carry law overrides the concealed carry law.

“Don’t be alarmed and overreact when you see someone open carry a firearm,” said Sealy Police Chief Chris Noble.

The same rules that governed concealed carry handgun permits apply to open carry. The only difference is that handguns may now be worn holstered in plain view rather than hidden from sight.

“Wherever you can carry concealed you can carry open,” he said.

Chances are that the stuffing in your stocking could be a new Remington or Glock.

Background checks for firearms purchases totaled 7,301 on Black Friday alone, said Josh DeVine, public information officer for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The number of checks between Dec. 1-17 were 49,575 (the most current data available this month). That's close to the 61,692 checks for the entire month of December 2014.

Last week DD was joined in court by 16 Congressmen, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, the Cato Institute, and the Madison Society Foundation.

These parties filed amicus briefs on our behalf, recognizing that our case is for nothing less than the future of free speech on the Internet, and a fight for the future of the Second Amendment.

For the last three years, DD has managed to fight this fight on its own. This year we were joined by the Second Amendment Foundation, but our effort is becoming much larger and more difficult as the months go on.
 

Re-establishing a normal gun culture in America

The turning away from normal gun culture led by the former leader of normal gun culture, the NRA, began as recently as the 1970s. The 1977 annual convention, which became known as “The Cincinnati Revolution,” elected new leadership that was primarily concerned about Second Amendment rights. For these people and their followers, the ownership of guns became closely identified with their personal identity. In particular, they felt personally threatened and fearful that their guns would be limited or even all of them taken away by an oppressive authority.
 

VA: Virginia revokes handgun permit agreement with North Carolina, 24 other States

North Carolina gun owners are none too happy with Tuesday's move by Virginia's attorney general.

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, said concealed handgun permits held by residents of 25 states will no longer be valid in his state. He said the state will revoke its reciprocity agreement with the states because their concealed-weapon laws don't meet Virginia's standards.

But ask gun owners with concealed-carry permits in North Carolina and they'll tell you Tar Heel rules are every bit as stringent as those in Virginia.
 

Rand Paul Bill Protects Gun Owners From Executive Orders

In light of President Obama’s promise to issue executive orders abridging the right of Americans to purchase and use firearms, one prominent lawmaker is coming to the defense of the Second Amendment and the rights it guarantees.

Senator and Republican presidential hopeful Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is trying once again to protect the right of the people to keep and bear arms from forfeiture by the fiats of a president unconcerned with constitutional limits on his power or protections for basic rights.

The Separation of Powers Restoration and Second Amendment Protection Act is being pushed through the Senate and could come to the floor early in the new year. This bill is nearly identical to one submitted by Paul in 2014.

In the opinion written by Senior Chief Petty Officer James Hatch (USN, Ret.) that ran in the paper on Dec. 13, he states that good guys with guns rarely stop bad guys with guns. This is absolute nonsense. I too am a military veteran. There is a monumental difference between kicking doors down and getting into a firefight with enemy combatants and being a good guy with a gun in Hometown, America. The press wants us to believe, "Wow, this guy is a gun expert that believes in the Second Amendment and even he says that a good guy with a gun rarely stops a bad guy with a gun."

NJ: Governor Christie’s Newest Anti-Gun Slight Of Hand

Sure, the “report” looks official in all of its typed 34 pages. But what does it really say? Well, first, if Chris Christie was really on our side, he would have created this so called “commission” within 30 days of being sworn into office in 2010.

Why now? Because he is running for president and voters in New Hampshire, and other early voting states don’t share the anti-gun sentiments of New Jersey.

Christie needs to at least pretend to do something even when he does nothing. And lets not forget, following other anti-gun scofflaws who have come before him, the report was delivered several months after it was really due.
 

'The full Obama' – a worrisome specter for gun owners

A Second Amendment advocate is concerned that Barack Obama, during his final year in office, will go all out to stomp out the gun rights of law-abiding citizens.

President Obama recently took to the airwaves – and over the weekend, to the homes of the families of the victims of the San Bernardino massacre – decrying the need more gun control. Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president in 2016, has echoed the president's call for an end to what they call "gun violence."
