"NBC’s Meet The Pressmeister David Gregory will no doubt emerge from HighCapMagGate unscathed. Legally. And image-wise—at least amongst the liberal elite. For America’s chattering class Gregory’s little “whatcha gonna do about THIS Wayne HUH WAYNE?” stunt is a classic case of the ends justifying the means. It’s nothing compared to the death and destruction caused by the NRA’s pro-gun lobbying. If one child is saved by Gregory’s 'victimless crime.' [/sarcasm] Meanwhile, as csmonitor.com points out, law-abiding Americans see Gregory’s willful violation of DC gun laws as 'one rule for us one rule for them' elitism. ..." ...

"When I am asked why I need a magazine for my 'assault rifle' larger than 10 rounds, the answer is 'because soldiers carry magazines larger than 10 rounds.' The 2nd Amendment was written to protect the people from more than just criminals. It was also understood that each sovereign state in the union would need to depend on its citizen militias to project power as needed. That meant well-armed men . . ." ...

"I don’t know about anyone else, but I was rather annoyed that the NRA appeared to be paralyzed after the recent massacre in Newtown. If they’ve since found their voice, it hasn’t been loud enough for me to hear it, much less average Americans."

"Just why would they decide to shut down and take cover? It certainly appears to me that they wouldn’t have had to if they had a solid message that was worth communicating regardless of what’s happening in society."

"I imagine that’s got to be how many non-NRA members see it as well."

... "Brett, like practically every other person seeking to diminish our constitutional rights, either does not understand the purpose of the Second Amendment or refuses to address it, writing, 'Gun advocates will be hard-pressed to explain why the average American citizen needs an assault weapon with a high-capacity magazine other than for recreational purposes.' The answer to this question is straightforward: The purpose of having citizens armed with paramilitary weapons is to allow them to engage in paramilitary actions. ... It is remarkable to me that any educated person — let alone a Harvard Law graduate — believes that the second item on the Bill of Rights is a constitutional guarantee of enjoying a recreational activity." ...

"The reports are absolutely true. Facebook suspended the Natural News account earlier today after we posted an historical quote from Mohandas Gandhi. The quote reads:"

"'Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.' - Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446."

"Everyone is worrying about the politics and possible future bloodbath potential of trying to limit scary black weapons and big magazines. That’s all understandable given the current climate, but something that’s been lost in the discussion are the warrior families among us that have defined this nation. Simply put, we are heavily reliant on the police and military in this country. They’re the ones who keep order and safeguard our way of life. But here’s the rub: if the president and the dedicated gungrabbers in Congress like Diane Feinstein succeed in prohibiting civilian use of 'military style' weapons, they’ll also reduce the number of future recruits to these critical professions . . ." ...

"We know, you weren’t surprised that Michael Bloomberg didn’t have much good to say about the NRA’s proposal for putting armed guards in America’s schools. Who would be? If the country’s preeminent gun rights organization said their favorite flavor of ice cream is chocolate, he’d immediately call a press conference and accuse them of being reckless and dangerously out of step with the vast majority of Americans who like vanilla. ... So after Wayne LaPierre laid out the plan for the National School Shield Program Friday, Bloomy called it 'a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America.'

"Brace yourselves. Here comes another skirmish in the age-old war between the AK and the AR rifle families. The primary points of contention have always been contrasting ideas of reliability, lethality, and accuracy. The differences have polarized an otherwise likeminded group of individuals. Many of these individuals have even gone so far as to create whole institutions — or churches if you go that far — around their rifle of choice. They claim that their idea is 'progressive', or 'constantly evolving', yet all they end up doing is alienating many of their followers who are then left in an ideological pit because their favorite trainer feels their rifle is not good enough . . ." ...

"Post-Sandy Hook, the gun control industry has kicked into high gear. As we’ve proven time and time again, gun control advocates base their arguments—such as they are—on dubious scientific studies. They shamelessly, artlessly cherry pick and twist data to bolster their appeal. And no wonder; the facts simply do not support gun control advocates’ anti-gun agenda. Which is why emotional appeals are their primary 'weapon' in their endless fight ... To that end, the gun control industry creates videos like the one above and manipulates language itself. Here’s a guide to some of the euphemisms gun control advocates use to control the conversation about guns. See what they did there? Make the jump for more . . ." ...

"It is so tiresome to face yet another round of the paranoid gun loonies warning that their Second Amendment rights are going to be taken away because of all the recent shootings. We heard how President Barack Obama was going to take our guns away, and that did not happen. It won’t happen this or the next time, either. What is this gun-loving crowd so afraid of that it has to be able to buy any guns made?"

"While your guns are not going to be taken away, your semi-automatic weapons should be. ..." ...

"In response to Steven E. Morris (Your Views, Dec. 19): The Second Amendment is indeed archaic for at least two reasons. ... Now that we have the strongest and most effective military on earth, it's not necessary for private citizens to bear arms for this particular [militia] purpose. Second, 200 years ago it was obvious what bearing arms consisted of. Now, it's not obvious. Few would deny the appropriateness of possessing a gun, baseball bat, slingshot, etc. to defend one's self and property from those 'bent on violence.' However, few would also deny that no good can come of civilians possessing nuclear arms. Therefore, The question is where to draw the line, not whether any lines should be drawn to limit civilian arsenals." ...

"The cat was let out of the bag when the CEO of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre, set forth his solution to mass shootings in schools: Post an armed guard in every school. That is his religion: Guns everywhere. Guns as salvation. Guns as totemic objects.What if a shooter at a school comes in the back door — LaPierre would presumably solve this problem by posting two or more armed guards in each school. Very nice: Schools become prisons." ...

... "There are a lot of things going on here, and Kurtz seems to be missing all of them. Culturally, one of the things lots of Americans detest about the elite journalistic culture is the idea that reporters are above the law. Usually, this self-regard manifests itself in debates over revealing sources. Many journalists honestly believe they have special rights and privileges not enjoyed by all Americans. As a matter of law and logic, that’s not the case (which is why some journalists want to see the licensing of journalists). We all have the right to commit journalism." ...

"Americans are determined that massacres such as happened in Newtown, Conn., never happen again. But how? Many advocate more effective treatment of mentally-ill people or armed protection in so-called gun-free zones. Many others demand stricter control of firearms."

"We aren't alone in facing this problem. Great Britain and Australia, for example, suffered mass shootings in the 1980s and 1990s. Both countries had very stringent gun laws when they occurred. Nevertheless, both decided that even stricter control of guns was the answer. Their experiences can be instructive." ...

"In the aftermath of the worst mass shooting of school children in U.S. history, Connecticut and the nation are embarking on an arduous journey every American hopes will lead us to a better place. Never before in my memory has an incident of deadly violence shaken this nation to its core and forced us to confront the lethal realities of mental health and access to weapons of easy slaughter."

"Before the victims of the Newtown massacre were even identified, there were emotional calls on social media for an outright ban on ownership of firearms by anyone other than police or the military. Sorry folks. You’d need a constitutional amendment to accomplish that feat. I think the Second Amendment is pretty clear on that subject:" ...

"And although the Nevada native has welcomed the call by President Barack Obama to respond to the Newtown, Conn., massacre with action, Reid has yet to endorse — or even utter the phrase — 'gun control.'"

"Obama expects Reid to get the gun control legislation he’ll announce in January through Congress. Polls show a majority of Americans want Congress to act to regulate firearms after the Dec. 14 killings of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School."

"But before Reid can whip up votes on measures to scale back access to guns, he has to wrestle with the issue himself." ...

... "Is the fact that the NRA has tried to influence the confirmation process improper? It seems to me that the answer is “no,” just like it was not improper for abortion rights groups to try to block several of George W. Bush’s nominees. Of course, you can agree or agree with the NRA’s decisions on the merits. Again, you can say their ads were over-the-top given the relatively sparse record on the issue. But again, we expect advocacy groups to try to use their influence on political bodies like the Senate when rights that they see as central to their mission are up for grabs. Maybe that opposition is misguided. But there is nothing improper about the advocacy groups scoring the vote or taking a position on the nomination." ...
