... "This one is meaningful for me. I wrote some years ago about being subjected to insults for presuming to march through Santa Monica, CA as part of the Second Amendment contingent in their Constitution parade--it seems that particular amendment wasn't very welcome in the People's Republic. And I wrote a few years after that about how our local counter-demonstration to the so-called 'Million Mom March' in Westwood, CA, only drew several hundreds of supporters--despite an area gun show a few weekends before attracting over 40,000 gun owners." ...

My gun: A most necessary tool
Submitted by: Bruce Krafft

"Guns are technology. Many of us no longer think of firearms as technology, however. We've allowed popular culture, emotional mythos and political propaganda to affect our view of these tools. We see them not as labor-saving devices, but as statements ... we've stopped understanding them technologically."

"Greek mathematician and physicist Archimedes is reported to have said, 'Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.' A gun is a lever. It is a hammer. It is a screwdriver. It is a pair of pliers. By this, I mean that a firearm is a force multiplier. It saves you labor by making it easier to deliver force to a target with less effort than using your fists alone. ..." ...

Gun bans through the back door: part three

"Part one of this series dealt with misdemeanor drug convictions that result in gun bans, and part two dealt with misdemeanor domestic violence convictions that have the same effect. Both were concerned with current bans, and present law. The subject of the present installment is somewhat more ominous, and probably more of an actual threat to our freedom than the first two subjects. The focus of this article is the repeated attempts to ban or restrict private ownership of firearms in the U.S. through the Courts, possibly using 'International Law'." ...

"Seattle Weekly writer/editor Nina Shapiro is at it again in her 'Daily Weekly' blog, demanding that the Legislature do something in the wake of a sixth law enforcement death since Oct. 31."

"Five of those officers, including the only female police officer killed in the line of duty anywhere in the country during 2009, were murdered with handguns. The sixth, Seattle officer Timothy Brenton, was killed with a Kel Tec sport-utility rifle, fitted with an after-market magazine. That particular firearm does not fit any known description of an 'assault rifle' except that somebody in the Seattle Police Department called it an 'assault rifle' and anti-gunners, including Shapiro, landed on that like flies on horse puckey." ...
 

Violent Crime Continues Decline (Even While Gun Ownership Increases)
Submitted by: Bruce Krafft

"Preliminary statistics released by the FBI for the first half of 2009 show that violent crime continues a downward trend that began in 2006. The figures show crime falling in all categories--robbery, aggravated assault, motor vehicle thefts, etc.--with murders down a remarkable 10 percent from the previous year."

"The FBI statistics undermine a favorite argument of anti-gun groups and some mainstream media that 'more guns equal more crime,' especially when you consider that the decrease in violent crime from late 2008 through the first half of 2009 occurred at the same time that firearm sales were surging." ...

"I spent Christmas in the Chicago area, and returning to warmer climes for (most of) the rest of the season reminds me of why I have lately wintered as much as possible closer to the subtropical zone."

"Most of my life, though, was spent in Northern New England where winters are long and cold. ... I learned that careful planning can make guns a lot more manageable in sub-freezing and often sub-zero temperatures."

"Cold hands get numb, and numb hands get clumsy. Gloved hands can be warm, but warm gloves are thick enough to reduce the sense of feel and make gun-handling clumsy…a potentially dangerous thing. Snow, freezing rain, and even a rime of ice on the gun when you're outdoors with it long enough ... won't help, either." ...

"Danny Westneat hits a bull's-eye again with his column 'Good enough for guns, not wheels.'"

"Time and again, week after week, Westneat manages to jostle our brains, and move to our hearts with his intelligent perspectives on current affairs. While he always has something interesting to say, his recent piece is especially powerful."

"It should make even ardent gun-rights advocates sit up and think."

"Living in the land of the free has limitations and rules, like driving on the right side of the road. That certainly isn’t freedom, but helps to keep us from killing other innocent people."

"Our country should have basic gun control and licensing laws that help to do the same thing." ...

"Danny Westneat's column on our culture that embraces gun ownership ... resonates with so much common sense that hardly any more can be added, except to note it was exceptionally well thought out."

"It is beyond me how we got to the point that any attempt to put some reasonable limits and accountability to gun ownership is deemed outrageous." ...

Submitter's Note: Conveniently ommitted from this letter is the fact that the shooter was already a 'prohibited person'. Why call for more 'reasonable restrictions' when the existing ones weren't used?

"There were many times over the years when operations that had been approved by the Chief Counsel's Office – signed off on by William McCann -- had gone south. Street agents were always held accountable for the blow-back, never the attorneys. Never, reflected McCann with a smile at his mug in the mirror, HIM."

Their theory was that the guns were a danger to the children, and the household was therefore better off without guns. I disagree.

Senate health care bill amended in attempt to allay gun owners' concerns

"The acrimonious, bitterly partisan fighting over proposed health care reform has gone on for months now, and things are hardly likely to get any more cordial during the reconciliation process between the House and Senate versions. Anything approaching a comprehensive discussion of the desirability of dramatically increased federal government involvement in the health care system is well beyond the bailiwick of this column, but there has been some discussion about how such reform might affect gun rights (specifically, whether or not the reform might be used to undermine those rights), so a bit of a look is perhaps in order." ...

"Shortly beforehand, National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea rebutted John Cahill of the Nevada Outdoor Democratic Caucus, (NODC) who argued that the Reid Amendment renders the bill moot from a gun rights perspective." ...
