... "As far as I'm concerned, we need to keep [Morgan] right where he is, reminding American firearm owners with his outrageous disarmament advocacy just exactly why we had a Lexington and Concord in 1775. Piers is the best advertisement for citizen disarmament lobby I can think of -- from our point of view. He's ignorant, stupid, wholly uninformed, rude ..."
"Precisely, and for precisely that reason, the best news Morgan could give the NRA and the gun rights movement in general is his 'warning' that he's 'not done with [us] yet.' Please, please, Morgan, continue to be the pompous, rage-filled, sputtering, incompetent face of 'gun control.'" ...

"Updated: Democrat California State Senator Ronald S. Calderon today pleaded not guilty in federal court to corruption charges in a case that also touches his brother, former California Assemblyman Thomas Calderon, the Sacramento Bee and Los Angeles Times reported late Monday afternoon."

"Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of the United States today turned down all three Second Amendment cases that had sought review. This column discussed those cases Friday."

"Sen. Calderon allegedly accepted cash bribes totaling $100,000 and and other gratuities for what the Long Beach Press Telegram reported was his alleged support for 'legislation that benefited a Long Beach hospital owner and a Hollywood studio owner.' ..." ...

"The state of Connecticut is making lists of firearm owners to raid. It seems obvious to me that it is thus only fair to list those anti-constitutional tyrants who will have blood on their hands the moment the first Connecticut citizen is shot by the CT state police while carrying out their orders. I will be sending these folks my own email later today."

"'I laugh at your foolishness,' said a Bloomberg.com editorialist recently, when commenting on efforts by Gun Owners of America to help stop the anti-gun amnesty bill."

"Bloomberg's hatchet man, Francis Wilkinson, just can't understand why gun owners would be concerned about legalizing millions of anti-gun voters who broke the law to get here."

"In his February 19 editorial, he ridicules GOA (and you) for thinking this could be an 'electoral threat' to gun rights." ...

"'This year is the 25th anniversary of the founding of the interdenominational Society,' Snyder added"

... "When the First Amendment was written, the authors had no way to forecast electronic communications, the Internet or smart phones. We have laws written to regulate these things and interpret how they’re used, but the freedom of speech is still alive and well."

"I’m not sure why there’s so much emotion behind the Second Amendment. There’s never been an effort in the United States, that I know about, of the government to take away citizens’ guns. ..." ...

Submitter's Note: Well Winston, your abysmal ignorance regarding ongoing gun confiscations in New York and California, to say nothing of historic gun confiscations (post-Katrina LA comes to mind) just goes goes to show that reporters "should be responsible" and "should have to demonstrate they know how to safely and properly use their" word processors. With permits to be issued at the discretion of local LEOs after you demonstrate "good cause" for needing one.
 

A Good Teacher With a Gun.. or Guilt and Liability in the Next School Shooting

"We know better now. There was a time when the best assumption was to keep firearms out of schools. Now we know the best method to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun. Think of what we do if a murderer comes to class. We call a good person with a gun. When school boards say they want a 'gun-free school environment', they are replacing the real world with their fantasy world. That is a fantasy world we can’t afford any more. I’m sorry, but we’ve seen what happens in 'gun free zones'. We’ve paid the price in blood when murderers enter our schools." ...

"So now what do the governing bodies of Idaho’s private colleges ... do? The Idaho Legislature, taking leave of all common sense, and abetted by a governor who approaches all issues from a purely ideological standpoint, swallowed whole-hog the latest gambit by the National Rifle Association to make the Second Amendment an absolute right as opposed to the qualified right the Supreme Court has ruled it is."

"By overwhelming majority the Senate kissed the NRA’s ring and passed legislation allowing students over 21 years old who have taken an eight-hour enhanced training course to carry concealed weapons on a public college campus." ...

"A high school student in Montgomery County has been suspended after school officials found a knife inside his father's car."

"David Duren-Sanner should be spending his time going through college and scholarship applications this time of year."

"Instead, he's wondering if he'll even be able to graduate after what hundreds of people are calling an overreaction to a mistake."

"On Thursday, Duren-Sanner, a senior at Northeast High School drove his father's car to school. During a random lockdown, his car was chosen to be searched."

"Duren-Sanner gave permission because he said he had nothing to hide." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: NEVER give permission for a search!
This incident further confirms the widespread belief that our country's public school system does not exist to educate but to indoctrinate and cow young people into submission to the state.

"Rocker Ted Nugent, who just made media waves with a printed reference of President Obama as a 'subhuman mongrel,' now says he’s going stop calling people names — but apparently not the name 'liar.'"

"Mr. Nugent said in CNN: '... I’m going to get right to the meat of the matter where our president is a liar. He lies about you can keep your doctor, period. Over and over again, he lies about Benghazi. He’s lying about the IRS.'"

"The Second Amendment activist then promised not to call the president any more names."

"'I won’t call him names anymore. I’m going to get right down to the nitty-gritty and identify the criminal behavior by the people abusing power in the United States government,' he said, CNN reported." ...

"What was he thinking? That's what many are asking about Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott’s choice of gun rights advocate Ted Nugent as a campaign side show while he pursues the Texas governorship. It's not that Nugent called President Obama a 'subhuman mongrel' and 'a piece of sh-t' who should 'suck on my machine gun.' It's that Abbott apparently didn't know about Nugent's unbalanced, incendiary rhetoric--not a good sign in someone who wants to be a state's top elected official." ...

"Greg Abbott, suggesting he’d like a do-over on his campaign appearance with rocker Ted Nugent, said Monday that he wants to move past the uproar."

"Abbott, the Republican front-runner for governor, compared getting beyond the Nugent affair to the way he dealt with recovering from injuries that put him in a wheelchair. He was hit by a tree while running in 1984."

"'If I had it to do all over again, I probably wouldn’t have went out for a jog that day,' Abbott said at a news conference after a rally at The Pantry restaurant in McKinney. 'But life doesn’t give you do-overs. I am in a wheelchair because I can’t go back and do that over, and I’ve learned ever since then that you move forward from where you are. ...'" ...

... "In fact, three months into his career, McAllister, who had never been to the nation’s capital until he was elected to Congress, still comes off as a blunt, unfiltered, independent-minded outsider, not a member of a party known for holding the ideological line."

"He likes many of the tea party’s goals but questions its obstructionist tactics and its absolutism." ...

"And he has no qualms about questioning GOP orthodoxy. While he firmly defends the Second Amendment, for example, he’s fine with background checks and other measures that, while popular in polls, have stalled in Congress."

"'I tell everybody it’s not black and white. There’s a lot of gray in this whole world,' he said." ...

"To who it may concern (The Burlington City Council and mayor):"

"Are you serious? You want to have firearm owners lock their firearms in a safe, or use trigger or other locking devises when they are not in use? What do you suppose a home owner is supposed to do when confronted by an armed burglar hopped up on crack in their home? Call the police department? What is the response time? Unless they are outside the door, you’re dead! Do you suppose that the crackhead will wait for you to take off your trigger lock or open your safe and load your firearm?" ...

"New Jersey is consistently ranked among the states with the strictest gun laws in the nation, and they could be getting stricter, with gun control advocates and their allies in the Legislature gearing up to renew the charge for more regulation this year."

"Last year, the Legislature considered more than two dozen bills, most of them seeking to tighten regulations on firearms. But key measures on the agenda from gun control groups — including a restriction on magazine size and a ban on .50-caliber rifles — didn't make it past Gov. Chris Christie's desk."

"The court's decision not to hear the cases represented a loss for gun rights advocates, including the National Rifle Association, which was behind two of the challenges." ...

"The Supreme Court has turned down two Second Amendment appeals lodged by the National Rifle Association, keeping in place laws that restrict those under 21 years old from buying or carrying a handgun."

"Without comment, the justices dismissed claims by NRA attorneys who argued limits on those who are 18 to 20 infringe the 'fundamental right' to have firearms for self-defense." ...

"'It is unthinkable that a court would allow Congress to declare law-abiding individuals in the first years of their legal majority too 'irresponsible' to be entrusted with First Amendment rights,' [former U.S. Solicitor Gen. Paul D. Clement] said. He urged the court not to allow 'this fundamental right (to) be relegated to second-class status.'"

After passing through the lobby and descending a winding staircase, I came to a long corridor whose green walls are adorned with framed newspaper clippings, photos, and painted-on golden bullets pointing the way. The muffled blasts of gunfire grew louder as I got closer." ...

"I visited the Westside Rifle & Pistol Range because I was intrigued that such a place could exist in one of the least gun-friendly cities in the country. I was curious about the rare breed of New Yorker who is licensed to own a gun." ...

"Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested on three counts of criminal possession of a weapon early Tuesday after his estranged wife went to cops with his gun, sources said."

"The struggling Felton was charged with second- and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm — all felonies — and an additional misdemeanor charge (fourth-degree possession), an NYPD spokesman said."

"The Knicks guard was cuffed when he turned himself in for questioning at the 20th precinct in Manhattan at about 12:50 a.m. ..."

"Worcester Police arrested a local man for discharging a firearm and possession without a license after responding to one of three reports of shots fired over the weekend. How did that gun get into the hands of 36-year-old Franky Perez, who witnesses claim fired several rounds into the air outside of a nightclub?"

"The majority of guns seized by law enforcement in Massachusetts that can be traced come from outside the state, according to the latest available data from the [ATF] ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Indeed, of the 999 guns traced 546 came from other states! Which means that 453 came from MA. Further, the average 'time-to-crime' was 14.21 years as opposed to the national average of 11.12 years. Hardly even an 'outbreak', much less an epidemic.

What is ominous is the ease with which some people go from saying that they don't like something to saying that the government should forbid it. When you go down that road, don't expect freedom to survive very long. — Thomas Sowell
