"A common argument from those who are in favor of more stringent gun control laws is that the necessity of firearms in the hands of citizens as a 'check' against an out-of-control government is simply not needed in this day and age."

"America has a mature, stable government, they say, and the possibility of it suddenly going off the rails and needing to be 'taken back' by its citizens is simply preposterous. They cite history as showing that the government has never been that overbearing, and there’s never been a need in over two centuries for the armed citizens to rise up. Therefore there will never be such a need."

"This view is very shortsighted ..." ...

"The on-line Seattle P-I.com’s Joel Connelly wondered today if 'anti-Catholicism (has) become the country's 'last acceptable prejudice?'

"Northwest gun rights advocates might ask what Connelly – a liberal and something of a Seattle icon – would say about this remark, perhaps from one of his “progressive” contemporaries: 'Gun nuts are the irrational dregs of society.'" ...

"Many government and healthcare officials – usually government healthcare officials – have recently called for stricter gun control legislation, claiming we have an ‘epidemic’ because ‘thousands of lives are being needlessly lost to gun violence’. As a student and soon-to-be graduate student in the healthcare industry, I don’t think that term means what they want it to mean…" ...

"When is an 'assault rifle' not an 'assault rifle?'"

"When it is purchased by former astronaut Mark Kelly, husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, at a gun store in Tucson, Ariz. At least, that must be what the Associated Press decided when it reported about Kelly’s controversial gun buy that he posted on his own Facebook page; a story picked up in Wednesday’s Seattle Times." ...

"Among the gray, green, blue and tan shapes shuffling on the combat range at the Arnold Rifle and Pistol Club (ARPC) on a dreary Saturday morning is a shock of bright pink. At first I think it might be Emily, a young competitor I met at last month’s International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) match, but it’s not. I introduce myself as a writer, explain my interest in talking with a young woman I had never met. She introduces herself as Allison. Allison accepts my offer of a handshake and grips it ladylike, grasping my fingers and giving them a squeeze. 'People call me Ali' she informed me . . ." ...

"If you’ve witnessed — or been involved in — in a retail ammo-buying scuffle recently you know how hard it can be to keep your heaters well fed these days. I’m having zero luck finding pistol food around these parts. My only option is my favorite LGS where they’ll only sell ammo to be used on their range. An then, only 100 rounds at a time in any one caliber. What’s a gunny to do? LaserLyte thinks their new Teutonic-looking Trigger Tyme LT-TT training pistol (in soothing, non-threatinging fake gun blue) is just the thing for these ammo-scarce times in which we live. Its 5.5lb pull is made to work along with with their LT-PRO (pictured in muzzle above) laser shooty thingy. Press release after the jump . . ." ...
 

AZ: Former Rep. Giffords' husband Mark Kelly's purchase of rifle draws online criticism

"The husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords generated nearly 4,000 comments on Facebook from people on both sides of the gun debate after he posted a photo of himself buying a military-style rifle -- a purchase he made to demonstrate how easy it is to obtain the kind of firearms he's lobbying Congress to ban."

"A background check took only a matter of minutes to complete, Mark Kelly said in the Facebook post, adding that it's scary to think people can buy similar guns without background checks at gun shows or on the Internet."

"It didn't take long for gun-rights supporters to accuse Kelly of being a hypocrite for buying an AR-15-style rifle and a 45.-caliber handgun." ...

"A little after midnight, on Wednesday, March 13, a teenage girl in St. Louis woke her dad when she heard what sounded like someone trying to get into the house through the front door. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch states that the girl’s father, who was armed, opened the front door and a man, who was obviously intoxicated, 'walked right in', according to police. After the two men engaged in a physical conflict, the father shot the intruder in the leg with a handgun." ...

"An Orange County grand jury has cleared a Newburgh man of any charges in the shooting death of another man outside a Liberty Street bar in that city last October."

"Charles Alexander, 21, shot and killed Justin Doctor, 23, of Newburgh on October 14 outside the Game Time Bar at 5 a.m."

"District Attorney Frank Phillips said the entire incident was captured on surveillance video that the police acquired."

"Alexander’s attorney, Paul Trachte, said that video proved Alexander did not commit a crime."

"'It was fortunate for young Mr. Alexander that the entire incident was captured on video camera and I believe that it clearly showed that Mr. Alexander acted in defense of his brother,' Trachte said." ...

"Following passionate speeches by the public, which cited Thomas Jefferson and the Greco-Persian Wars, the full Columbia County Board of Supervisors voted Wednesday night on a resolution calling for the repeal of the NY SAFE Act."

"About 100 opponents of the act were in attendance and cheered the passage of the board’s resolution, which had been in the works for weeks. The supervisors agreed to allow a half hour public comment session before the vote, after an agreement by both parties, though such comment is not typically allowed at full board meetings without a prior request and a vote by the supervisors." ...

"A Joe Biden staff member ordered a student journalist to delete his photos in a university-sponsored event at a Maryland college, prompting the vice president’s press secretary to issue an apology."

"But only after dean of the journalism program fired off a letter in protest."

"The staffer, Dana Rosenzweig, walked up to the student and ordered him to delete his photos off his iPhone because he had been sitting in a 'non-press seating area,' giving him an 'unfair advantage over other members of the press' who apparently had a more restrictive vantage point to take their shots." ...

Aides: Bill would make gun protections permanent

" A bipartisan Senate bill preventing a federal shutdown would make four long-standing gun protections permanent, including one preventing the Justice Department from requiring firearms dealers to conduct inventories to make sure weapons haven't been stolen, congressional aides from both parties said."

"Another provision made permanent would prevent the government from changing the definition of antique guns, which can sometimes be easier to obtain than modern weapons. Two others would block the department from denying a license to firearms dealers who report no business activity, and require the [ATF] to include language in firearms data stating that the information can't be used to make conclusions about gun crimes." ...

"In an effort to make a political point about concealed carry in public buildings, an anti-gun Kansas Democrat has inadvertently introduced an amendment that makes open carry legal in the state capitol."

"The amendment was introduced by Lawrence Kansas Democrat John Wilson who states that he is, in fact, opposed to guns in public buildings and only introduced the bill to 'draw attention to what he considered the hypocrisy of legislators who wanted to allow the concealed carry of weapons in other public buildings, including schools and mental health centers, but not in their own workplace.'" ...

"But Wilson’s little political joke may backfire on him as his amendment actually passed the House and is moving on to the Senate." ...

"We’ve been seen the California civilian disarmament squads being touted across the airwaves as doing the “good work” of keeping guns out of the hands of prohibited persons. But despite those efforts, all is not well in the Republic of California. While Bloomberg news might have you believe that only violent felons and other “evil people” are having their guns confiscated, the truth is that people who have done nothing wrong at all are having their firearms confiscated, too . . ." ...

"Back in February, the NRA unveiled a document that the Obama administration had until then managed to keep hidden. The reason for this secrecy is that the National Institute of Justice (part of the Justice Department) had analyzed the most prominent proposed new federal gun laws, and found that most of them would accomplish little or nothing, unless accompanied by additional restrictions, far more draconian than the administration dares (for now) to admit seeking." ...

"'Authorities on Thursday killed a man suspected of shooting dead four people a day earlier in separate incidents at a barbershop and a car wash in neighboring upstate New York towns,' reuters.com reports. This after not one but two previous shoot-outs wherein Kurt Meyers avoided ventilation and escaped police. We don’t know how many rounds were expended in their attempt to eliminate Mr. Meyers—any more than we know why Reuters decided to mention the SAFE Act in their coverage of the shotgun showdown. OK, we know that one. So tanks for that and let’s turn to the The Big Apple po-po, two members of which shot a Brooklyn teen yesterday, much to the consternation of local residents . . ." ...

"In late February, when the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals refused Illinois' request to hear an en banc appeal of that court's December ruling that stuck down as unconstitutional the state's outright ban of all armed self-defense (at least in town), it looked as if the only threat to "shall issue" defensive carry in the last state to ban it outright would be a law that theoretically legalizes concealed carry (thus satisfying the courts), but is so restrictive as to constitute a de facto continuation of the total ban." ...

"Pint-sized sluggers in the town of Atwood, Ill., may have one of America’s best-selling firearms to thank when they step up to the plate this summer: The local youth baseball league is raffling an AR-15 rifle to raise funds for new equipment."

"The response has been 'tremendous,' said Charidy Butcher, co-owner of the Atwood Armory shop, which donated the gun for auction. 'I’ve gotten calls from every state in the country.'"

"The Rock River Arms Tactical Operator 2 AR-15 rifle that her store has put up was made by an Illinois firearms manufacturer, Butcher said. “It’s one of the hottest on the market right now,” she said. 'They’re almost impossible to get your hands on.'" ...
