... "'The report … also said that a Homeland Security special agent on the border was collaborating with the ATF in Fast and Furious, but his 'senior leaders' in Arizona never read his updates about fundamental flaws with the failed gun tracking operation,' The Times story continues. 'Had they done so, Homeland Security officials could have tried to close down the operation before one of their Border Patrol agents, Brian Terry, was killed not far from Tucson.'" ...

"As the People of the Gun emerge from the winter of our discontent, it’s time to take a look at the big picture. Only six months ago, I foolishly thought the gun rights war had nearly been won except for a few mopping up actions. Our movement had been on a twenty-year roll. The anti-gun lobby was virtually given up for dead by pundits who lamented the apparent triumph of those crazy Second Amendment supporters. But what a difference one election can make. Emboldened by the re-election of Mr. Obama and the fact that they had two years to work before the 2014 mid-terms, on the heels of Newtown the anti-gun forces launched an attack that can be compared to the Ardennes counter-offensive of December, 1944 . . ." ...

..."Gun control is also in the news, with its insistent interference with the right of self-defense as if gun control can somehow be present when and where it is needed most: at the scene of the crime. Like the Good Samaritan who comes to the medical aid of a stranger, the armed citizen brings what gun control can never deliver, and that is that the citizen can and does fight violence where it is fought best; at the scene of the crime. Instead of noodling this one out in debates and anti-gun editorials, why not consult private citizen gun owners instead of bureaucrats consulting other bureaucrats?" ...

"In 1791, after their bloody struggle for independence from the oppressive English crown, our forefathers ratified our foundational document — the Constitution — along with James Madison’s elucidation of the individual citizens’ personal and natural God-given rights, the Bill of Rights. It is the latest challenge to the second of these original 10 Amendments — Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 — that we’re addressing today." ...

"In the increasingly litigious world we live in, simply being of good character and stating the whole truth often isn’t enough. Pictures can be taken out of context, witnesses can lie, and a good lawyer can spin situations to the point where you’re no longer in the right in the eyes of a jury. That’s where the Taser Axon Flex comes into the picture, providing officers (and others) the ability to capture an entire event, not just what happens in front of the cruiser’s dashboard camera . . ." ...

"One of the great ironies of the gun control debate is that everyone who calls for gun control still wants a man with a gun protecting him. Every governor in America has armed security. You have to go through a metal detector guarded by men with guns to get into the Capitol building. Barack Obama has hundreds of Secret Service agents carrying fully automatic weapons who protect his safety. ..." ...

"Marcus Hook, Pa. Mayor James 'Jay' Schiliro’s name has disappeared from the roster of Mayors Against Illegal Guns after being charged in an incident that allegedly involved firing a handgun and false imprisonment."

"Schiliro was one of 600 mayors to sign an open letter to the U.S. Senate earlier this year demanding tougher gun laws."

"It is the latest addition to a string of MAIG members exposed in January by the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation as having criminal problems. Recently former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was indicted on various criminal charges, and he was also a MAIG member according to a 2009 roster.

"Never mind that [name redacted] used a Bushmaster AR-15 assault-type rifle to rip apart the bodies of children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Forget the fact that [name redacted], the alleged Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooter, fired, among other weapons, an AR-15."

"Nor does it seem to make any difference that [name redacted] -- the man who shot Gabby Giffords and killed six others, including a 9-year-old girl -- used a high-capacity magazine that the Clinton-era assault-weapons ban rendered illegal. A high-capacity magazine also enabled the massacre committed by [name redacted], who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech." ...

"Rep. Charlie Rangel falsely claimed there are 'millions of kids dying, being shot down by assault weapons.' In fact, fewer than 100,000 persons younger than 20 years old died of gun violence, including suicide, over a 30-year period through 2010, government data show. About two-thirds of those deaths — or nearly 65,000 — were homicides."

"'There was one certain impact of proposing to ban the sale of assault weapons: it was guaranteed to stir gun-rights proponents to action. Ever since Obama was elected, they’ve been claiming that he wanted to ban guns. Gun-control advocates mocked this claim—then proposed to ban a gun. Not only that, the gun they were trying to ban happened to be the most popular rifle in America. ..."

"Gosh, things are starting to get a little uncomfortable in the Senate these days. The senior harridan from California went to all the trouble to draw up a new, more restrictive 'assault weapons' ban, but can’t manage to round up enough members of her own party to get even close to passage. So Harry Reid ... yanked the AWB from the larger gun control bill so that it won’t kill the chances of the remaining, less off-putting items on the gun-controllers’ to-do list ... But while DiFi isn’t happy, her baby is only mostly dead. She’s been promised a vote on adding her common sense gun ban back to the big bill as an amendment once it reaches the Senate floor. Which is exactly what some of her colleagues in the majority fear most . . ." ...

So the victims took the cash to buy themselves a new truck, finally. Without sacrificing their right to sue for millions, presumably.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their luscious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. This, sir, is what I long for. -- General Francis Marion, American War of Independence, Georgetown, SC [Source: 'Marion, The Life of Gen. Francis Marion' by M. L. Weems, Ch.18]
