David Codrea: The Right Kind of Gun Rights?

"Reasonable self-defense leaves room for firearms regulation. Exotic and highly destructive weapons could be restricted or banned, because no one needs a machine gun or grenade launcher for protection against ordinary crime." ...
"This is what happens when you let the 'moderates' drive the bus--they can't find enough of 'those people' to run over. It's happened with the 'Big Tent' Republicans, and it's happening in the gun rights movement--with the complicity of many who claim political expansion through compromise is more important than fidelity to principles and core constituency." ...

"The District of Columbia v. Heller case was argued before the United States Supreme Court just a few days ago. ... and as usual, different factions of gun owners are hoping for different outcomes."

"Self-defense advocates ... are hoping for a broad ruling that strikes down all restrictive gun bans."

"There is another large faction of gun owners, however, who don't really care whether the D.C gun ban is upheld. They are the type who live with their head in the sand and refuse to acknowledge they are part of the problem. Instead, they are either only interested in owning a gun for hunting, or only want a gun for home defense and don't see a need to go through life armed." ...

"With the 2008 presidential election looming larger on the horizon, it is important for those who believe in the constitutional right to bear arms to keep close watch on groups who profess to support your Second Amendment rights, and those who are front groups for destroying those rights one step at a time."

"The heaviest fire in the war over firearms in the United States has come from those who are absolutist in their view that there can be no legal limits on gun possession and from those who see no such right in the Constitution or in civilized society."

"After what was, by Supreme Court standards, a protracted argument last Tuesday, it may be hoped that the justices are prepared to split the difference. It would be the right thing to do. But it could well serve to complicate the lives of the gun-rights and the gun-control advocates of the future. Not to mention the dockets of judges." ...

"As the U.S. Supreme Court considers the matter of 'gun control' in the District of Columbia, many Americans understand that the issue is about 'control' not 'guns.'"

"It's no secret that guns in the hands of law abiding citizens threaten only those seeking control over those citizens, be they criminal or over-reaching government. It's also no secret that no law will keep guns out of the hands of criminals, who by definition don’t care what any law says."

"Is there a message hidden in the fact that the cities with the strongest gun control laws also have the highest violent crime rates in our nation?" ...

"Firearms have long been a part of the history and culture of South Dakota. It is difficult to imagine homesteaders defending their claims without the assistance of rifles, and it is hard to ponder an autumn in South Dakota without the blaze orange vests and shotguns that are everywhere during pheasant season. Guns are a part of life in rural South Dakota, but Second Amendment rights are not so universally respected in other parts of the country."

"The column on Washington, D.C.'s gun ban shows the typical far-left rationale or lack thereof when it comes to the Second Amendment ('D.C.'s gun ban in court's hands,' March 20). The premise of the entire argument is two-fold."

"First if we get rid of guns altogether all violence will stop and we will all give each other a big hug. Let's ignore the fact that most repressive governments in history have confiscated guns. Countries that have banned guns recently, or have very strict laws such as England and Australia, have had large increases in crime."

"It is a most dangerous game we're playing here. The major 'news' outlets seemed to agree with my assessment (and I went out on a limb with that, 12 hours before any of them), that the High Court seemed ready and willing to unequivocally affirm an individual right to keep and bear arms. ..."

"But it doesn't end there — it barely starts there. If they affirm, does that mean Gun Laws of America (listing every federal gun law, with plain English descriptions), is erased? How much of it becomes null and void? ..."

"'Gun laws will be over' is the hysterical cry of the antis ... And those are almost the fears of the pros too — any finding less than total uninfringed keep and bear will jeopardize 200+ years of firmly established cherished rights." ...

"When Supreme Court justices debate the legality of the District of Columbia's ban on handguns in coming weeks, their file will include a legal brief from Vice President Dick Cheney, Arizona Sen. John McCain and 54 other senators asking that the law be overturned."

"But they won't find anything from Democratic Sens. Hillary Clinton ... or Barack Obama ... They didn't sign the rival brief from other members of Congress who back the tough handgun restrictions."

"... Under current law, we are entitled to self-defense as an exception to the laws against murder. Self-defense doesn't appear in the Bill of Rights, but it does fall under a basic right in our law -- the right to life. State laws have done a good job of allowing for the defense of the oneself and others. Nobody is in jail for self-defense. But some states have substituted their idea of the 'right to self-defense' for the 'right to life' under 'shoot first' laws, and the problems are becoming evident. Under these laws, when someone kills, the prosecution must prove, along with everything else, that the killer did not feel threatened. This change yields an unintended boon for sociopaths -- a potent new tool for getting away with murder." ...
