... "It was from this scene that a remarkable, unifying, charmingly captivating and inspirational act happened. A little girl, a six-year-old appropriately named Faith, came forward on her own, rapped on massive doors that dwarfed her, and cried 'Freedom knocking!' to the delight and applause of all." ...

"It’s worth noting that Chris Kyle was a rifleman."

"He didn’t fly drones, he wasn’t in the cockpit of a fighter plane, he didn’t sit behind a computer console ..."

"He was a rifleman."

"In combat, he picked up a gun and he used it to kill the enemy. At the end of the day, he survived ... because of his capability with a gun."

"We should remember that."

"Because that’s how wars are won."

"That’s how wars have always been won."

"At some point, one group of warriors needs to close with another group of warriors and, at the range of their weapons, they must do battle. That may be the length of a sword or a spear, or it may be the range of a gun. But at some point, one group of guys has to kill another group of guys." ...

"It seems the branding death march continues at Freedom Group, as more and more of the smaller brands under the Remington umbrella are killed off and merged with Big Green proper. The latest casualty is Para USA, a 1911 handgun manufacturer known for competition handguns and good quality products. In a press release this morning, Remington announced that Para USA will no longer exist as a separate brand, and their products will be sold under the amalgamated Remington branding instead. Make the jump for the presser . . ." ...

"The NY Daily News is at it again. In an editorial posted on Sunday, the paper once again trotted out the same old party line that 'more guns cause more gun related death.' Which is true. Yes, you heard me right — their statement is accurate. Kinda. But not in the way the NY Daily News wants it to be, and it’s still the dumbest, most hysterically biased, semi-scientific argument that could possibly be made on the topic. Three seconds considering their point reveals that it’s a complete waste of ink, paper and electrons . . ." ...

"Teaching children to learn how to hunt and fish—you would think such an endeavor would be met with a pat on the back. Instead, a bow hunter in California endures death threats for her program Bring a Kid Hunting."

"In an interview with Mama Grizzly Radio, Jen Cordaro spoke out about the treatment she’s endured from animal rights terrorists. It’s quite shocking."

"'The initial reaction to the 'Bring a Kid' campaign actually was all positive,' said Cordaro ... 'I have more letters from kids than I can keep up with.' But once her ambitious program hit social media the anti-hunters crawled out of the woodwork. Cordaro received messages filled with, as she puts it, 'not so nice words.' That’s putting it mildly." ...

"The 2015 Nevada Legislative Session began with a bang last Monday due to a proposed bill that will affect the allowance of guns on the University of Nevada, Reno’s campus."

"Republican Assemblyman John Hambrick wasted no time introducing Assembly Bill 2 to the 78th session. The bill would make it legal for citizens to have concealed carry weapons (including guns) in their cars on school campuses, whether it be parked at a K-12 school or Nevada System of Higher Education institution. While some may argue this bill is an extension of their second amendment right, the Nevada Sagebrush editorial staff strongly opposes measures, like AB 2, that will only deepen the dangers associated with gun violence." ...

"Rep. Curt Oda, R-Clearfield's HB260 bill permitting concealed guns without a permit is irresponsibly dangerous. In District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), the U.S. Supreme Court held, 'Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose. For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues of arms.'" ...

"Why is Rep. Matt Shea more interested in protecting the gun rights of felons, drug addicts, domestic abusers and the mentally ill than in protecting the safety of the majority of his constituents, Washington’s law-abiding citizens?"

"Although the smoke screen of a mythical “attack on the Second Amendment” is used to justify opposing Initiative 594, an examination of the facts makes it clear that this is not a Second Amendment issue."

"For all of us law-abiding citizens not suffering from mental illness, this initiative does not impact on our ability to purchase a gun. The benefit to overturning I-594 goes to felons, drug addicts, domestic abusers and the mentally ill who wish to purchase firearms. Period." ...

"One of the most important rights as citizens in a Constitutional Republic is the right to call upon the government for redress of grievances. Unfortunately, We the People are all too familiar with so-called lawmakers who not only ignore the will of the people, but actively work against it. We see this in Washington State as well as other states throughout the country, as legislators continuously pass law after law that directly infringes upon those rights that are outlined as being off-limits to government control."

"Regardless of whether our elected officials wish to acknowledge it or not, We the People retain this right to redress, and we present this list of grievances to the Governor of the State of Washington, and demand that they be rectified. ..." ...

"Young and old, they demanded one thing: freedom."

"On Saturday, a group of gun-toting Washington state residents gathered at the state capitol building in Olympia to protest an ever-expanding government."

"On the steps of the capitol building, the roughly 50 protesters listened to Three Percenter founder Mike Vanderboegh and state Reps. Elizabeth Scott and Matthew Shea; watch Shea’s address below:"

"According to Associated Press photographers, quite a few of the demonstrators in attendance were children, and one of the most poignant moments of the day may have come, not from an adult speaker, but from a child." ...

"Faith stepped up to the doors of the Washington State Legislature Saturday showing no signs of fear. No one, in fact, seemed afraid. And no one was belligerent."

"It was eerie. Faith is six years old. The Movement is well over 200."

"I was surprised so many showed up. Because this event was planned to directly confront the business end of abusive government, the guys with guns and no morals. And these participants, by definition, were those who had counted the cost and were putting it all on the line against the New American Tyranny… and its legal budget… and its politicians… and judges… and its police… and its media." ...

... "Briefly told, we gathered on the portico of the building waiting for the rotunda doors to be unlocked, chatted as people gathered ... and then we had the speeches. I thought that the legislator's speeches were particularly good and WA state is very lucky to have such principled folks representing them. When the doors opened, we trooped in, armed, and went to the gallery doors, which as we had learned the night before were going to be locked. They were. In a spontaneous moment, and I know this to have been completely unscripted, people approached the door and knocked on it, some asking in loud voices to be let in. As they did so, one little girl emulated the adults and went to door and knocked ..." ...

... "Rep. Shea and Rep. Scott led the crowd in through the doors, and we made our way up the stairs to the legislative viewing gallery, only to find it closed and locked. The legislature had literally barred the People of the State of Washington from their own gallery. Rep. Shea stepped aside and said he would 'let The People take it from here.' A patriot stepped from the crowd and pounded on the door, once, twice, three times. Slow, forceful. The hallway was silent, and the doors did not open. He stepped back and another patriot stepped forward, pounding on the door three times. And another…and another…one by one, many of us stepped up to demand entry to the People’s gallery." ...

"One bill filed in Oregon would require school districts to provide firearm- safety courses."

"Another would allow anyone with a valid concealed carry license to present the license, rather than the gun itself, to a peace officer for inspection when inside a public building."

"Of the two dozen gun bills filed in the week-old legislative session, most are written by Republicans, and several seek to scale back Oregon’s gun control laws."

"That didn’t stop a group of gun rights activists from lining the Capitol steps in driving wind and rain Monday to renew their opposition to a universal background check they say is coming to Oregon and would infringe their right to guns." ...

"Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT), a virtually unknown senator until the Sandy Hook incident, has conspired with gun grabbing senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) to co-sponsor Rep. Elizabeth Esty's (D-CT) unconstitutional bill that would limit magazine capacity to only 10 rounds across the nation. ...'" ...

"It’s an idea so incredibly crazy it just might work: Restoring voting rights to non-violent felons—if they get back their right to own guns, too."

"For some tough-on-crime conservatives, the right to bear firearms is a right that is as fundamental as the right to vote. Capitalizing on this sentiment, the strategy goes, could lead to a larger compromise on felons’ rights."

"'If someone asked me if I would rather vote for mayor or have a gun, I’d rather have a gun,' said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform and a signatory to the conservative Right on Crime criminal justice reform coalition." ...

"The 'Second Amendment sales tax holiday' is proposed by state Sen. Frank Niceley, R- Strawberry Plains, and state Rep. Kelly Keisling, R-Byrdstown."

"The proposed firearm provisions were drafted by Bryan Day, a lawyer who lives on Old Cedar Lane. Day’s property borders Williams’ bog. The proposed bylaw would prohibit the discharge of firearms — including handguns, revolvers, pistols, fowling pieces, rifles, shotguns and black-powder long guns — within town limits, except in certain circumstances. ...'" ...

"The ... New York State Pistol and Rifle Association sued the city in 2013, arguing that laws limiting certain licensed handgun owners to carrying their unloaded weapons directly to or from their homes and shooting ranges infringed on their Second Amendment rights."

"Judge Robert Sweet said he wasn’t buying it last week in a 43-page ruling."

"'These regulations are reasonable and result from the substantial government interest in public safety,' Sweet wrote, citing previous rulings that 'outside the home, firearms safety interests often outweigh individual interests in self-defense.'" ...

Well, let me be brief on this point: No, it does not. Nowhere in that document is there any mention of a 'right to a sense of security.'"
