... "'A sensible approach to gun laws dictates that firearms with reasonable recreational, self-defense and sporting uses be protected, but military-style guns are proven to be nothing more than killing machines in the hands of irresponsible civilians,' he asserts, as if doing so means he knows what he’s talking about. Still, his use of the word 'dictates' says much." ...
 

'Gun loving liberals' are welcome to the debate, but who can they vote for?

"It seems a truism, so obvious as to not be worth saying, that gun rights advocacy is associated with 'conservatism,' and the push for more oppressive gun laws is associated with 'liberalism.' This was not always the case. As UCLA Constitutional Law Professor Adam Winkler writes in The Atlantic, California's passion for 'gun control' can be said to have begun with conservatives attempting to disarm the Black Panthers. Going back much further than that, John Locke, the 'father of liberalism' (although admittedly, Locke's Classical Liberalism was a brand almost directly opposite what goes by that name these days), was clearly no advocate of a "government monopoly on force.'" ...

This goes double on commercial aircraft and triple when we travel to other nations. Take it from someone who regularly has to go up to airline ticket counters and say, 'My name is Massad Ayoob and I have two handguns,' though I try to phrase it more diplomatically than that."

"The AR-15 platform has indeed gotten a bit stale. Everyone and their illegitimate cousin twice removed makes a version of the gun these days, and for most manufacturers all they actually do is grab a barrel from one supplier, a receiver from another, slap their branding on it and call the thing “new.” And for most consumers, that’s good enough. But Adams Arms has gone a few steps further. Not only have they completely re-designed the gas system to use a piston instead of direct impingement, but they go to the trouble of making their own parts — barrels included. While that’s all very impressive, as always the proof is in how well the gun actually runs. And even on that end, the company does things, well, differently . . ." ...

"The rise of the rugged, reliable zero-to-low power variable rifle scope in the last decade has been a fantastic development. Scopes like the Burris MTAC, Leupold VX-R Patrol and Bushnell SMRS can meet your aiming needs from sitting-room distances out to 300 yards and beyond. From CQB to DMR to hog and coyote hunting, they bridge the gap between red dot sights and magnifying optics. But most of them bridge that gap verrry sloooowly. And that’s where a good scope throw lever comes in . . ." ...

"Every year, about 100 children die from an accidental shooting, and in about 85% of those cases, the shooter was another child. Many thousands more, children and adults alike, have been killed by guns that are illegally trafficked or stolen."

"The technology to eliminate these senseless deaths already exists, and we believe it should be required."

"The Handgun Trigger Safety Act would achieve this goal. ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: And the lying liars are lying again. According to the CDC, from 2006 - 2010 there were 221 actual children (0 - 12 years old) accidentally killed with a firearm, or 44.2 per year. To achieve the "about 100" number you have to include "children" up to age 17.
But before we start worrying about guns, how about we do something about the 5,982 "children" (using the author's definition) who accidentally suffocated in that period? Or the 4,470 who accidentally drowned? Or the 1,916 who died in residential fires, the 1,713 accidentally poisoned, the 585 who died bicycling 576 who died in falls?
Sorry Scooter, but you are going to have to come up with a better rationale to support your anti-gun agenda than recycling "it's for the children".

"Let me start with two predictions. First, Senate Bill 1254 — the so-called 'guns on campus' bill that is now awaiting a vote by the full Idaho House — will pass and become law. Second, someone will try to open carry a gun into Bronco Stadium this fall to test the limits of SB 1254."

"Despite the stated intent, I don’t believe this is a bill designed to improve safety on Idaho’s public college campuses, places where I spend a fair amount of time and places that host most of the best-attended sporting events in the state."

"No ... is designed to protect a right that guns rights’ absolutists believe is being infringed on college campuses — the right to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment." ...

"So she gets our applause for deciding to challenge last month’s ruling by a three-member panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that struck down the state law requiring 'good cause' to obtain a concealed-weapon permit.

No to mention that 'Sunday's was the second reported gang rape of a UCSB student in the area in two months.'

"Connecticut gun owners are calling the state’s anti-gun bluff. The state recently passed a slew of anti-gun legislation, including a gun registration program for so called 'assault rifles' that has been received with less enthusiasm than Obamacare. In fact, many gun owners in Connecticut have elected to ignore the patently unconstitutional law in the same way that Millennials have ignored the IRS requirement for health insurance. And now, as the state issues threatening letters and increased confiscation rhetoric, citizens are telling the state: 'Come and take them.'" ...

"Initiative 594 would enact statewide criminal background checks for all firearm transactions. That’s in direct conflict with Initiative 591, which would prohibit passage of any law expanding background checks unless a national standard is created. I-591 also prohibits confiscations of guns without due process."

"Both measures were given a public hearing this session, but it’s doubtful the Legislature will take further action ..." ...
