Ensure the UN does not destroy the Second Amendment

"I urge gun owners to get a copy of the December issue of 'America's 1st Freedom,' which is the official journal of the National Rifle Association and is sent to all its members. If you have not already done so, please read three of the articles in this issue: 'One on One,' 'Follow the Money' and 'IACP'S Bold Call for Confiscation and Destruction.'"

"We have all known for years that those of the anti-gun movement have tried everything they can think of to have certain kinds of guns banned in the United States and have been unable to do so up until the present time. So now they are trying to do it through the United Nations, which would make any law relating to gun control mandatory to every member of the U.N." ...
 

Anti-gun employers endanger our Second Amendment rights

"For years, pro-gun advocates have rightfully pointed out that several key groups are a serious threat to our gun rights. Most are avowed anti-gun organizations or have some other emotion based argument for wanting to confiscate the guns of law-abiding citizens. But, a bigger and more dangerous threat continues to put our firearms rights in jeopardy – employers."

"Most of us need our jobs to secure the financial needs of our families and can’t simply change jobs each time our employer does something to infringe on our rights. Although in a perfect world, we would never be forced to make the choice between financial need and safety, in practice people are forced to do so more often in America every day." ...

"Mr. LeMoult puts forth several points in his recent 'Ideas' column titled 'The Second Amendment, guns and death.' This is not fresh thinking or new ideas on the part of the author. It is a rather tired summarization of many years of liberal thinking regarding the Second Amendment."

"There are two views of the meaning of the Second Amendment. One is generally termed the collective view, which is the one put forth in the piece. The militia clause is the part of the amendment on which this view concentrates. ..."

"The other is the individual right approach to both the Constitution and the Second Amendment. The words 'the right of the people' as used in the Second Amendment are also used in the First, Fourth and Tenth Amendments. ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

It's a common scenario. You're out on the town, some lowlife starts mouthing off, so you fill him with more lead than a pencil factory.

But how do you convince the judge it was self-defence?

Say hello to Pistol-Cam. Strap this camcorder to the end of your pistol, take aim, and it'll record your brutal slaying in MPEG4 video, complete with sound. Then download your day's maiming onto your computer via USB.

The "I'll make you famous" line from Young Guns II has never been more appropriate.

It can store up to 60 minutes of footage, for if your gunfight lasts longer than Arnie's, and even comes with a laser sight and tactical flashlight.

Most life-stoppers are supported, including Beretta, Glock, and Smith and Wesson.
 

Guns made to kill with high efficiency

"There is one thing gun lovers won't understand. It is very simple. The word that sums it up is: Technology."

"Guns are a very efficient technology for killing. They have no other purpose. They enable people with every sort of ancillary problem to act on their problems with unprecedented efficiency."

"... when push comes to shove, if there were no guns on this planet (and I mean all guns ) military, civilian -- all) how would they respond to their dilemma?"

"Suffer it out, beat somebody with their fists, lash out with a knife? They certainly wouldn't have almost instantaneously killed five people with a knife." ...

"My dear sane people,"

"While we await the Supreme Court's decision on what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they penned the Second Amendment, I thought it might be a good time to try to explain to those 'law-abiding' and 'emotionally stable' gun nuts we hear so much about—the ones who are always scheming to find more and more ridiculous ways to impress us with their firearms studliness—why we think it's a horrible, absurd idea for them to be toting concealed weapons onto our university campuses or into our state and federal parks, as it would seem many are itching to do."

"I know, I know ... I'm wasting my time. Gun nuts are defined by their uncompromising nuttiness when it comes to guns. As sane people, we all understand this." ...

"In today's Internet-dominated society, where anyone can play disturbing flash games reenacting the Columbine massacre or access footage of school shootings on Youtube.com, it's safe to say that violence in schools is a serious problem that doesn't seem to be going away."

"With school shootings becoming a regular fixture in the nation's headlines, has the US become too desensitized?"

"UB alumni Drew Piatek and Gordon Tashjian, co-writers/directors of the play LIT 401 seem to think so. Intending to bring back the shock value of such tragedies as the Columbine and the Virginia Tech shootings, LIT 401 tells the eerily familiar story of two student gunman who open fire on an English class. ..." ...

"The Supreme Court should allow Dick Heller to keep a handgun in his home." ...

"Heller won his lawsuit before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit when that court struck down the district's gun law. Previous decisions of a similar nature around the country had gone the other way."

"Now it is up to the Supreme Court to decide whether Heller has a constitutional right to keep a handgun in his home."

"Justice Anthony Kennedy, who may be the deciding vote on the divided court, appeared to side with Heller's argument in saying, 'In my view, there's a general right to bear arms quite without reference to the militia either way.'" ...

"In case you hadn't noticed, there has been quite an uproar in the media lately. No, not about Eliot Spitzer or Barack Obama; the uproar is over a recent Supreme Court case—District of Columbia v. Heller. The case pertains to whether a total ban on handguns in Washington, D.C. violates the 2nd Amendment." ...

"Disagreements over whether the 2nd Amendment is an individual right or a collective right have been with us in our political discourse for quite some time. But rather than listen to a bunch of blowhard lawyers on the subject, I’d rather refer the matter to those individuals who coined the words of the 2nd Amendment in the first place." ...

"At issue in the D.C. vs. Heller case is not only whether or not the Supreme Court will acknowledge that the Second Amendment applies to private citizens, but also to what extent the government can restrict our ability to exercise that right." ...

"While it is doubtful that the Supreme Court decision will contain a long list of specifics in terms of regulation, their opinion should convey the Court's opinion quite clearly and should be broad enough to cover a variety of scenarios."

"With that in mind, we would like to review several common anti-gun laws that serve no purpose other than to infringe or restrict the law-abiding citizen's ability to own or possess a firearm." ...

"Technically, the challenge is to a District of Columbia handgun ban. Realistically, the U.S. Supreme Court last week heard oral arguments and took under advisement a case that could have historic ramifications for the right to bear arms." ...

"A concern we have is that a court ruling could overreach in ruling on the D.C. handgun ban and find that states or the federal government can't regulate certain types of weapons. Government's regulatory authority certainly must be retained over them."

"We don't see the Second Amendment as an open-end license that allows a private citizen in this modern era to have assault rifles or heavy artillery in their basements. Some weapons should be reserved for use only by the military or police." ...

"If you're roaming bear country, your best protection against an unpleasant encounter is a can of bear spray, not a gun, according to Brigham Young University wildlife biologist Tom Smith."

"Smith's team ... has studied 600 bear encounters in Alaska over two decades. In 72 incidents in which bear spray was used properly, the bear stopped charging more than 90 percent of the time ... People using guns, by contrast, stood a one-in-three chance of failing to deter the bear ..."

"'The probability is the bear spray will outperform a firearm and it's easy to see why. The spray is easy to deploy. The rifle is just difficult to use,' Smith said. Stopping a charging bear with bullets required, on average, four hits." [emphasis added] ...

"... a man walked into the store with a sawed-off shotgun and demanded narcotics from the pharmacy staff. The man then walked around the pharmacy counter as pharmacist Mark Gallagher began placing drugs into a bag."

"As the man pointed his gun toward two women who work in the store, Gallagher, who told investigators he feared the man would shoot the women, grabbed the firearm, Smith said. After a struggle, the pharmacist was able to wrest the shotgun away from the robber and fight him off, the sheriff said." ...

... "The Sept. 15 killing was remarkable in that it took place in the most innocent of settings ... But it was unremarkable in that one of the guns brandished was an AK-47-type rifle ... increasingly being used in American street fights."

"Figures from the [BATFE] ... show a marked increase in the number of AK-type weapons traced and entered into the agency's computer database because they had been seized or connected to a crime."

"The number of such tracings rose even while the federal assault weapons ban was in effect and has continued to climb since its expiration." ...

"The bill (HB503) passed on a nearly party-line vote, 72-42, with Republicans largely supporting the guns-at-work legislation despite a last-minute lobbying push by business interests to kill the measure, which they called an attack on business owners' ability to regulate the workplace." ...

"The debate over allowing those with concealed weapons permits to carry those weapons on public college campuses is a much broader and deeper conflict than it appears. Most of the participants are barely cognizant of their roles in that conflict, and that Arizona’s university system is again another battleground in the culture wars."

"Most American universities have become advance outposts for the post-modern leftist dogmas dominating western Europe since, and partly in reaction to, the Second World War. ..."

"The arguments against allowing this simple form of self-defense are not really about safety. That’s the cover story and can be easily refuted. ..." ...

"When the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments last week about the Washington, D.C., ban on handgun ownership, U.S. Rep. Mark Udall of Colorado issued a news release saying he hoped the court would affirm the right of citizens to 'keep and bear arms.'"

"But on four occasions when Udall, a Democrat running for an open U.S. Senate seat, could have voted in Congress to repeal all or sections of the gun ban, he did not."

"Udall campaign spokesman Taylor West said the congressman did not ... think Congress was justified in overriding the district while the issue was before the courts."

"For the past 25 years, firearms have been out of sight and out of mind in America’s National Parks."

"Now, a group of individuals and at least 51 U.S. Senators are supporting the loosening of Park Service regulations that would make it legal to carry a loaded firearm in a national park if the state has existing 'right to carry' laws."

"'We believe that law-abiding citizens should not be prohibited from protecting their family and belongings while enjoying the country’s national parks,' [NRA] spokesperson Rachel Parsons said. ..."
