"CBS News and the New York Times are reporting that U.S. Marines and other soldiers at a base in Afghanistan were hastily disarmed earlier Wednesday when Defense Secretary Leon Panetta arrived for a visit; an act that is likely to arouse many in the gun rights community to suggest this is another manifestation of the Obama administration’s anti-gun mentality." ...

... "This story from the book of Genesis illustrates a problem we humans have when faced with choices between immediate, concrete needs and our abstract rights. As firstborn, Esau had the right to a double portion of all the property that his father had acquired ... But being hungry, he traded the future benefit of what he had been born into for a single meal. Oops."

"Americans have a set of rights, too. But the temptation Esau felt has bedeviled us for as long as we’ve been a nation. During the progressive era when the constitutionality of certain aspects of the New Deal were being debated, leaders would articulate Esau’s question, asking what good are constitutional rights if we cannot…fill in the blank ..." ...

"Reader Sean Counihan has a bone to pick with Nick Leghorn’s recent piece on home defense and rifles:"

"First off, I would like to qualify that I am not an expert in this arena by any stretch of the imagination. I served in the US Army as a combat engineer; I do have experience with both rifles and pistols in an offensive function. Mr Leghorn suggests a hierarchy of home defense weapons as such: 1.) Pistol, I assume he is referencing a modern high capacity pistol in a defensive caliber (9mm or greater). 2.) Shotgun, again modern pump or auto. I would assume 12 gauge loaded with #4 buck or greater or slug. 3.) rifle. I offer a different opinion and simple hierarchy: 1.) long gun. 2.) pistol if long gun is not available . . ." ...

Good for you, but realize that if you don’t have a world class scope or other optical device to go with your long gun (and an intimate understanding of how to properly use that sometimes enigmatic piece of hardware), you’ll never get to witness your rifle's full potential." ...

... "The problem is that the National Rifle Association's radical agenda of the last few decades has been spectacularly successful. By opposing even the smallest and most responsible of gun control measures, they have cowed mainstream politicians (even most liberals) from even so much as using the words 'gun' and 'control' in the same sentence."

"The answer is not more silence and even more modest proposals. The answer is not to make nice with the radicals in the NRA. The answer, for those of us who want to end the gun carnage, is to make bold proposals that pull the debate back in our direction."

"My bold proposal is to simply ban the manufacture, sale and possession of all handguns and automatic weapons everywhere in America. ..." ...

"Some people have the quaint idea that shrinking the power of government will reverse the loss of individual autonomy. Some also have the old fashioned idea that guns and the Second Amendment will counter these trends. These people are lost in delusional dreams of a world that no longer exists." ...

"The Obama re-election campaign is in high gear and so are guns sales (again)." ...

"... Then in 2008, after Obama won, gun sales and ammo hit new highs — more than ever, setting and shattering new sales records."

"Then guess what happened? Nothing, nada, nil; not a darn thing happened. Mr. Obama did not send out his gun or goon squads to 'take your guns.' The country is still safe in that regard, and the Second Amendment has not been repealed or modified by a single word or punctuation mark. That has not stopped the gun nuts from overreacting now with his re-election campaign on the move. The Republican right wing and NRA membership robocall machines are fired back up, too, and that insanity continues." ...

"If you carry concealed, it’s likely that you’ve given a good bit of thought as to what you would do if, God forbid, you ever had to shoot someone. If you’re smart, you’ve played the game of 'what if' in your head, and taken to heart the advice you’ve gotten here on TTAG and elsewhere, regarding how to behave after the incident. But in the Twilight Zone of polarizing politics and media bias, what you may not have thought through is that none of that may matter, if circumstances let slip the Dogs of Media. You may well find yourself on the wrong side of an angry mob, armed not with pitchforks, hot tar and feathers, but something far scarier: video cameras, microphones, and network satellite uplinks. ..." ...

"U.S. District Judge Benson Everett Legg's groundbreaking March 5 ruling that Maryland cannot refuse to issue a handgun permit to an otherwise qualified individual unless that person has an acceptable reason for wanting one is a jurisprudential gem that correctly shifts the burden of proof from the citizen to the government. His elegant reiteration of basic Second Amendment rights in Woollard v. Sheridan will be quoted for generations: 'A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and substantial reason' why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right's existence is all the reason he needs.'" ...

"'States have considerable latitude to channel the exercise of the right in ways that will minimize that risk. States may not, however, seek to reduce the danger by means of widespread curtailment of the right itself,' the judge wrote."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
