"In all the noise caused by the Obama administration's direct assault on the right of every person to keep and bear arms, the essence of the issue has been drowned out. The president and his big-government colleagues want you to believe that only the government can keep you free and safe, so to them, the essence of this debate is about obedience to law."

"To those who have killed innocents among us, obedience to law is the last of their thoughts. And to those who believe that the Constitution means what it says, the essence of this debate is not about the law; it is about personal liberty in a free society. It is the exercise of this particular personal liberty ... that the big-government crowd fears the most." ...

"The New York Daily 'News' editorial staff has made no secret of its disdain for the Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms. After the Sandy Hook Elementary atrocity, though, that publication has lost all interest in maintaining even the thinnest pretense of journalistic objectivity, with every-gun related article (of which there have of course been a great many since Sandy Hook) featuring a 'coupon-style' petition to ban so-called 'assault weapons' and 'high capacity' (gun-hater code language for 11-round or larger) magazines." ...

"Ernest Tews has written a letter to the editor of the Asbury Park [NJ] Press, demanding regulation of gun owners. Actually he seems to think that the Second Amendment makes such a demand. He starts out conventionally enough, quoting the Second Amendment and then making the usual plaint that’s it’s just so darned hard to understand. 'The Second Amendment says, 'A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.' The Second Amendment is frustratingly non-specific, but let’s look at it as a product of the time it was written.' I think part of Ernest’s confusion here . . ." ...

"Even with a rifle as modular as an AR-15, there is still one big decision to be made. Namely, do you want to go the AR-15 route (with the smaller, intermediate 5.56 size magazine well) or the AR-10 route (with the full .308 size magazine well). That decision will dictate what uppers you can buy, what magazines you can use and a whole host of other things. But what if you didn’t have to make that decision? What if you could buy one rifle that used both AR-15 and AR-10 mags and upper receivers? That’s the whole idea behind the Colt LE901 16S . . ." ...

"There is a lot of talk now and a lot of legislation being developed for presentation to state legislatures about the role of gun ownership both in the home and on the street.

A handgun is what we are talking about. (The Second Amendment is not at issue here.) ..."

... "So desperate is the NRA for gun ownership to permeate all of American society that they have retained Internet star and gun advocate Colion Noir to be featured in a video to appeal to his fellow Black Americans to reject any consideration of gun control."

"In the video, he laments 'the same government who at one point hosed us down with water, attacked us with dogs, wouldn’t allow us to eat at their restaurants and told us we couldn’t own guns.' He concludes: 'The only person responsible for your safety is you. Cops can’t always be there. Obama definitely can’t be there. Guy telling me to get rid of my guns when I need them the most, isn’t my friend ... and doesn’t speak for me or the community that I’m part of.' It is vintage NRA orthodoxy." ...
 

Criminals, Predators and the Mentally Unbalanced Can Easily Buy Guns at Gun Shows

... "It’s madness to allow guns to be sold to felons with a history of gun violence or to the mentally ill. That’s why current law requires that no gun can be sold by a licensed gun dealer without a criminal background check. But millions of guns are sold by unlicensed sellers at gun shows and through websites with no background checks. We need to strengthen current law ... The few minutes it takes to complete a computerized check would save lives."

"The federal background check law has blocked more than 1.5 million illegal gun sales over the past 14 years. It works. The problem is that the law doesn’t apply to private sales, so the bad guys can avoid a background check and get any kind of gun, no questions asked." ...

"I am also a Vietnam combat veteran who carried an M-16 assault weapon with 20 magazines of 20 rounds. Early in my tour of duty I was taught to keep the weapon's selector switch on semi-automatic instead of automatic so I could be more efficient and effective in killing the enemy. The first time I used the weapon, I was amazed how fast I could shoot 400 rounds of ammunition.

"Oregon’s anti-gun zealots are feeling the heat. As a result they are doing what they always do best. They are lying."

"House Rep Peter Buckley has been sending out mass emails to opponents of HB 3200, (Greenlick’s gun confiscation bill) saying 'I signed onto it to express my strong support for doing whatever is possible and legal to stop the increase in the number of weapons capable of mass murder in our society.'"

"Now let’s put aside the reality that virtually anything is capable of 'mass murder.' Cars, knives, poison are all capable of 'mass murder.' So are the hunting rifles all the anti-gunners claim they are not after. ... Exactly how is Buckley planning on regulating all of these things?" ...

"There’s been a lot of internet buzz about the Department of Homeland Security’s 'new' MRAPs (a.k.a., tanks). I’ve been holding off posting about the story; there’s a lot of bad intel out there about government gun grabbers. Just because gun owners are paranoid doesn’t mean Uncle Sam is as bad as they think it is. Sometimes, of course, it’s worse. But it appears that the report that the DHS has purchased 2700 new MRAPs is wrong. Here’s the 411 from the official spokesman for Das Vaterland. I mean, Homeland . . ." ...

At no time during the home invasion was Pantaleon read his Miranda rights. At no time did Pantaleon grant permission for anyone to enter his apartment without his permission, no less police officers without a warrant."

The boiler for the apartment building is adjacent to the kitchen area of Pantaleon’s residence.

"The right to keep and bear arms is a civil and human right protected by the United States Constitution. In the same sense that slavery was wrong—no matter how many Americans supported it at the time—civilian disarmament is wrong no matter how many school children were slaughtered by a Bushmaster-wielding madman. There I’ve said it. Deal with it. As I know you, our Armed Intelligentsia have done and will continue to do. But this message hasn’t reached residents of the [now ironically named] Constitution State. A Quinnipiac University poll reveals that CT voters support civilian disarmament by a HUGE margin.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There are other things so clearly out of the power of Congress, that the bare recital of them is sufficient, I mean the "...rights of bearing arms for defence, or for killing game..." These things seem to have been inserted among their objections, merely to induce the ignorant to believe that Congress would have a power over such objects and to infer from their being refused a place in the Constitution, their intention to exercise that power to the oppression of the people. —ALEXANDER WHITE (1787)
