CCRKBA’s Gottlieb fires back: ‘Shame on you, Mr. President!’

... "But Gottlieb’s remarks ... are aimed squarely at the president’s Thursday media event, during which he stated about the Sandy Hook tragedy, 'Less than 100 days ago that happened. ... Shame on us if we've forgotten,' Obama said. 'I haven't forgotten those kids. Shame on us if we've forgotten.'"

"'We haven’t forgotten Sandy Hook,' Gottlieb fired back, 'nor have we forgotten that during the first weeks of your administration, Eric Holder floated trial balloons about renewing and expanding the ban on modern sporting rifles. We also haven’t forgotten that your administration tried to exploit the Fast and Furious debacle ..."

"'Shame on you, Mister President,' he said, 'for trying to capitalize on that tragedy to push an anti-gun agenda that has been on your wish list since before you took office.'" ...

"Yesterday, I blogged a letter sent to the Office of Management and Budget. Twenty-nine Democrats directed the OMB’s Acting Director to kill the Tiahrt Amendment—the law that keeps ATF eTrace data under wraps. As part of their rationale ... the Dems claimed the Amendment hampered Senator Grassley’s investigation into Operation Fast and Furious. The exact wording: 'Chairman Darrell Issa and Senator Chuck Grassley had to take the extreme step of requesting gun trace data of the Mexican Ambassador since they weren’t allowed to do so with their own government.' WTF? I contacted Senator Grassley’s office to get the 411 from the horse’s mouth (rather than the other end). Here’s his statement . . ." ...

"A controversial advertisement paid for by anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is not all many of its critics have claimed, specifically that an actor holding a shotgun in the spot has his finger on the trigger of the Remington Model 870 pump shotgun he is holding."

"That’s not correct ..." ...

"MEANWHILE, this column received an e-mail reminding hunters that the deadline is fast approaching for applications to be sent to the Colorado Department of Wildlife and Parks for non-resident hunting permits. Good luck with that, as it appears a boycott of Colorado goods and services by many hunters and shooters is fully-engaged."

... "I hear certain individuals who want gun legislation to pass making statements like, 'The Second Amendment is not unlimited' or 'There are restrictions to the Second Amendment.' My question is, where is that limit of how far our government can restrict one's Second Amendment right?"

"I've never heard anyone state how far the government can go with restricting one's right to keep and bear arms! It seems to me that everyone loves to argue about what the writers of the Second Amendment intended, but people want to ignore the fact that government has continually added restrictions to one's right to keep and bear arms throughout the years. ..." ...

"The gunman in the Newtown, Conn., massacre fired 154 bullets from his Bushmaster military-style rifle in less than five minutes, killing 20 first-graders and six adults."

"He brought with him 10 large-capacity magazines, each holding up to 30 rounds, which allowed him to reload quickly. He also carried two semiautomatic handguns, one of which he used to take his own life."

"Is this supposed to be the price of the Second Amendment?" ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Actually he performed tactical reloads; ejecting his partial mag and replacing it with a full one at each opportunity which made the size of his mags irrelevant. Also, as Sheriff Campbell shows here mag cap limits are irrelevant.

No, this is not "the price of the Second Amendment" this is the price of "gun free zones".

"Ever since the massacres in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn., this idea has been repeated like some surreal requiem: The reason that mass gun violence keeps happening is because the U.S. is full of places that ban guns."

"Second Amendment activists have long floated this theme, and now lawmakers across the nation are using it, too. During a recent floor debate in the Colorado legislature, Republican state Rep. Carole Murray put it this way: 'Most of the mass killings that we talk about have been affected in gun-free zones. ...'"

"The argument claims to explain the motive behind mass shootings and how they play out. The killers deliberately choose sites where firearms are forbidden ..." ...
 

Looking at gun “control” – part 2

"Part 1 explained that administrative and technological changes are necessary and possible for our safe and fair 'right to bear arms.' Guns are killing machines, though guns don’t do the actual killing. People kill. But people can’t kill with guns if they can’t readily get one, let alone two or more. Guns should be treated like cars with proper registration, alarms, inspections, insurance, etc… " ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Treated like cars, eh?
  • So my permit to carry will be good in all 50 states? And if I break some local law on magazine capacity or type of ammo I'll be able to fix it with a ticket?
  • Schools will have 'parking lots' for staff and students to store their guns during the day?
  • Schools will have "Carrier's Ed" that all students will be encouraged to take when they turn 15?
  • 15-year-olds can get their 'learner's permit' and on their 16th birthday kids can go right down to the local cop shop to get their license to carry? They’ll take the written and practical tests and if they pass the tests they’ll pay their fee ($20 – $50) get their license on the spot, right?
  • I can walk into a gun shop plunk down cash and, with no questions asked (except for name and addy for the registration), I can walk out 2 minutes later with a gun?
  • If my gun will only be used on private property then it doesn't have to be "street legal", so machine guns, RPGs, mortars, all are okay, right?
Okay, I guess I'm fully in favor of treating guns like cars.

"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and other Democratic leaders in Congress folded their tents on comprehensive gun control fast — dropping a ban on assault weapons and limits on the size of magazines as they watered down the 'official' bill that will hit the Senate floor."

"What’s left of the bill is important — notably universal background checks and a measure to enhance criminal penalties for 'straw man' sales. The more pragmatically minded among gun control advocates are arguing that we should just accept what is doable and stop fighting battles that are already lost. But not everyone is giving up." ...

"Organizers want to gather as many assault weapons ban supporters as Doylestown can fit. Those who favor universal background checks, too."

"'Action Target engineers are doing more on the beaches of Florida this spring than just surfing or getting a tan: they are designing the biggest bullet trap ever built.' So says the press release posted over at ammoland.com. Which leads me to believe that someone at the range-building company is trying to justify the fact that they’re surfing and getting a tan in Jensen Beach, Florida while their corporate compadres are freezing their collective asses off in Provo, Utah. Not a crime, surely (and yes I’m calling you Shirley).

"Reader David Brown writes:"

"I’ve noticed there are many people in the general public and political arena that seem to see a clear distinction between what weapons and magazines are appropriate for law enforcement and what are appropriate for 'the rest of us'. The only differences I see are ones that heavily favor the average person over law enforcement and here’s why. Like John Q. Public, a law enforcement officer’s weapons are used for defense of self or others. They’re not intended for offensive use. That being the case, the argument against citizens being entitled to anything short of what LEOs are privy to falls flat for three reasons . . ." ...

"A case could be made that the false impression many Americans have in regards to 'assault weapons' is the direct result of both the NRA misrepresenting them (beginning in the late ‘80’s through to the present) and not holding educators of U.S. history accountable for incomplete or revisionist history."

"When assault weapons were first widely introduced to the general public, NRA representatives held them up and touted them as 'sportsmen rifles' for hunting and target shooting. Certainly these firearms are well suited for both, however, neither of these activities are what they were designed for. It’s clearly evident that based on their design as well as their features, the purpose of an assault weapon is for just that ..." ...

In fact, that seems to have been all political theater. The real threat comes in Harry Reid’s own S 649 bill, or as its innocuous title is referred to as Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013. It’s anything but safe for communities, schools or freedom and has sweeping legislation that has the potential to destroy gun ownership in America. Because of its introduction last Thursday, it will probably be brought up immediately following the Easter recess." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crime. — Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson
