... "The smart money says this is a cynical ruse, and that imposing the new controls will benefit those in a position to create and capitalize on a lucrative new black market -- that is, those in power. If that happens, look for the predictable results prohibition traditionally yields, including a dramatic rise in firearms-related homicides, especially as more (and more dangerous) operators decide to claim and vie for turf." ...

"The perennial gun-control debate in America did not begin here. The same arguments for and against were made in the 1920s in the chaos of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which opted for gun registration. Law-abiding persons complied with the law, but the Communists and Nazis committing acts of political violence did not."

"In 1931, Weimar authorities discovered plans for a Nazi takeover in which Jews would be denied food and persons refusing to surrender their guns within 24 hours would be executed. They were written by Werner Best, a future Gestapo official. In reaction to such threats, the government authorized the registration of all firearms and the confiscation thereof, if required for 'public safety.' ..." ...

"Former ATF Agent John Dodson was one of the chief whistleblowers on Operation Fast and Furious, a covert program that channeled over 2000 U.S. gun store guns to Mexican drug thugs. ... Dodson’s cashing-in on his insider knowledge of Fast and Furious with a new book The Unarmed Truth. Americans looking for the unvarnished truth about the stingless ATF sting should look away now. The excerpt published in The New York Post offer no new insights into the extra-legal activities of an Obama administration agency gone rogue. In fact, it reveals Dodson as a mindless minion of a program whose rationale remains hidden by an Attorney General who remains in power, despite a citation for contempt of Congress. Here’s a taste . . ." ...

"Growing up the child of parents who relocated to this glorious country from Vietnam, life as a second generation immigrant was a lesson in learning cultural differences, acceptance, and being accepted. My family, like many that come to America, started off as outcasts within our own community. We struggled to find neighbors that understood why we didn’t put out candy on Halloween night, friends that wouldn’t hate us for not knowing to bring gifts to a baby shower, and peers that believed in the same family values we hold so dear. After a few years, we learned of these new customs and were able to establish long lasting friendships and niche within our community . . ." ...

"The gun collection of a man who was killed in Greenfield, Indiana back in September went up for auction Sunday morning in Indianapolis. With over 370 weapons (including the 1917 machine gun above) and more than a million rounds of ammunition up for sale, the collection was valued at over $1 million. 'This is a lot of responsibility,' said auction house president Earl Cornwell. 'This has made my eyes bloodshot and taken years off my life, just being in control of all this ammunition and the guns.'"

"The natural human right of self-defense has no minimum income requirement. Nor does the natural, civil, and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Few things bother me on such a deep level as laws and measures intended at doing nothing more than making gun ownership more expensive and, therefore, pricing it out of the grasp of certain classes of citizens. It’s racist, classist disenfranchisement, pure and simple. ...

"If it is reasonable – justifiable – for a cop to base every interaction with a citizen on the presumption that the citizen might be a threat to his 'safety,' isn’t the reverse all the more reasonable? That a citizen should assume the worst when confronted by a cop?"

"After all, a cop is known to be armed – and not merely with a gun. He possesses the authority of the state and with it, a far more relaxed standard for using gross and disproportionate violence against a citizen. He can do things to you legally – without fear of repercussions that no ordinary citizen would dare to do – and to which, moreover, the ordinary citizen is legally obliged to submit."

My father’s final act has forced me to rethink my position."

"On that terrible day, my father drove from his home in Georgetown to Lexington to purchase a pistol at 10:05 a.m. He drove back home and took his life in his very own garage at 10:55 a.m. When the detectives arrived a few minutes later, they discovered the price tag still hanging from the gun."

fense, a company that sells guns, submitted a commercial to Fox to be played during the Super Bowl in 2014. Fox denied the spot, citing the NFL's rule that prohibits the advertisement of 'firearms, ammunition or other weapons' during games. But gun enthusiasts claim that the commercial doesn't advertise guns. It just advertises the Second Amendment."

"The commercial shows a father coming home from war to see his wife and baby daughter. The ad implies he's a war veteran, and now that he's home, his 'family's safety is his highest priority' and 'no one has the right to tell me how to defend them.' Creepy music plays in the background as he picks up his daughter from her crib, as if danger could strike at any moment. ..." ...

"However, most of the current 3D printed designs use metal somewhere in the design. Those that don’t, generally don’t last very long due to the fact that plastic can’t hold up to the pressures produced by a gunshot. Not to mention the fact that bullets are, you know, still metal." ...

"Overview: The Ninth Circuit recently upheld a federal law that bans misdemeanor domestic violence offenders from possessing firearms for life. ... The court ... held that the federal law making it a felony to possess a firearm after having been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence substantially burdened, but did not violate, the Second Amendment because regulating gun ownership by domestic abusers furthered the important government interest of preventing domestic gun violence. Finding the regulation 'substantially related' to this objective, the court concluded that the gun ban was constitutional." ...

Nov. 25 letter, 'Second Amendment limits government,' was correct, but when the writer said 'no government entity has any right to deny the people of the state the ability to own firearms of their choice,' he came close to amplifying the right beyond its intended scope."

"The ruling in District of Columbia vs. Heller says, 'Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited … the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose … nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places ...'" ...
