... "In other words, in attempting to justify their concern, numerous non-ET examples, including one outside-of-country, and accumulated over years, had to be given to pad their list, not one death has been cited, and the wholly manufactured 'threat' is actually and statistically nonexistent. But it's scary to the uninformed, and thus exploitable in the insatiable demand for more federal law enforcement resources and controls." ...
 

“I, like the millions and millions of responsible gun owners, feel under personal attack for doing nothing more than owning a gun.”

"Dear Mr. Farago,
I suspect that my firearms experience is not atypical. I grew up in a small coastal city in California. My father had been an officer in the Marine Corps, and a veteran of the Korean conflict. When I was about 8 or 9 years old he started to teach me about guns. My father learned about firearms in the Marine Corps., and passed what he had learned on to me. When I was younger we would hunt together. As I grew older, my father and I grew apart, and my interest in firearms waned. That was over thirty years ago. In that time, I got married and pursued a career. I’ve had little if any interest in guns or hunting . . ." ...

"On January 15th, 2013 New York State passed the SAFE Act without a single legislator reading the document first. The act modified a number of existing laws, expanding some and creating new penalties in others. And it created the most hostile environment to gun owners in the entire United States. Days after the act passed, James Tresmond filed a number of lawsuits challenging the newly expanded laws. TTAG had the chance to interview Mr. Tresmond and his son Max (a legal researcher) and get some inside information about the cases . . ." ...

"Dan Baum’s busy doing the full court press tour for his recently released book, Gun Guys: A Road Trip. In an interview at theatlantic.com yesterday, he’s asked by Hope Reese how he was affected by toting a heater (sometimes openly, sometimes concealed) every day during his journey of discovery. 'It was…a good way to camouflage myself. I don’t look like a gun guy, I don’t sound like a gun guy — I sound like just the opposite and I look like just the opposite. They can see me coming a mile away. But if I’m wearing a gun, I’m one of them.' An answer which, to those with the hair-trigger outrage gene, might seem less than politically correct . . ." ...

... "I found myself reviewing the Chicago Firearms Registration form ... trying to weigh my desire to be law-abiding with my desire to uphold the Constitution and not allow my rights as a gun owner to be infringed upon. I own a few weapons, one of which is a 1911, and another is the 'mare’s leg' .22 from Henry. I was puzzling over the list of guns you’re not allowed to register, which is longer than my aforementioned lever action plinker, wondering to myself why Chicago deems it necessary to disallow the registration ... [of] any handguns weighing more than 50 ounces, unloaded. I realized that perhaps they consider very large handguns to be 'too powerful' for the public (another absurd idea; are we seeing a pattern?) . . ." ...

"The Israeli Defense Force is working with Israeli Weapon Industries to develop a version of their new Tavor bullpup platform chambered for the more powerful 7.62 NATO cartridge, according to a report by Y-net. The IDF is already phasing out their aging M16 rifles in favor of the much more modern Tavor platform."

"This would mean that the Tavor platform will support pistol, intermediate and rifle-caliber configurations. It is already available in 9mm and 5.45x39mm in addition to 5.56 NATO, its standard chambering." ...

"I'm not at all moved by the plight of gun owners who startle at every creak in the floorboards because the voices in their head keep hissing 'the Revolution is imminent and all unarmed suckers will necessarily be toast.' I'm not talking, either, about the Second Amendment zealots who are convinced the Founding Fathers would have eagerly tucked .223-caliber semi-automatic rifles under their pillows to ward off musket-wielding intruders intent on pilfering their copper cauldrons ..."

"'I’m a gun owner.' Oh brother. How many pro-gun control articles start with the author’s declaration that they own guns? Or, in many cases, a gun. It’s a sure sign that the writer supports firearms freedom like Gemma Massey supports Sharia law. 'I was in a gun shop and shooting range last week,' toymaker turned Wall Street Journal columnist Rhett Power continues. 'A man came in with his daughter who looked no more than 8 years old. She quickly spotted a pink handgun on display. She was convinced that it was a toy and told her father that she wanted to hold it. I asked the sales clerk if this was common, and he said that kids always think the pink guns are toys.' Uh-oh . . ." ...

"The elementary school that was the scene of Josh’s brutally harmless rampage sent students home Friday with a letter describing the incident as if it had actually been serious."

"The school writes in its letter: 'If your children express that they are troubled by today’s incident, please talk with them and help them share their feelings. Our school counselor is available to meet with any students who have the need to do so next week. In general, please remind them of the importance of making good choices.'" ...

"The Senate Judiciary Committee met today to mark-up the various civilian disarmament bills before the Senate, including Senator Feinstein’s 'Assault Weapons Ban.' Senator John Coryn proposed an amendment that would have allowed veterans to continue to purchase 'assault weapons' just like retired cops. ... 'Members and veterans of the Armed Forces are the most highly-trained and qualified individuals to own these weapons for self-defense purposes,' the Texas Republican told the Committee. 'We should think long and hard before disarming these heroes ...' Senator Feinstein opposed the amendment (which didn’t pass) on the basis that veterans have PTSD and can’t be trusted with guns.

"Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee will mark up four bills arising out of the Newtown tragedy:"

"* The Feinstein bill — which would ban millions of shotguns, rifles, handguns and magazines that Americans can legally own -- but which will probably die on the Senate floor."

"* The universal gun registry — which may also die on the Senate floor — unless a last-minute deal with Sen. Tom Coburn brings it to life."

"* Legislation by Barbara Boxer, which throws away $100,000,000 on school safety studies, but doesn’t immediately mention guns."

"I was talking with the guys behind the NY SAFE Act legal challenge and the one thing that struck me as something no one realizes yet is that the 'assault weapons ban' provisions aren’t the section of the law that is 'taking your guns.' No, the real trouble is with the magazine capacity restrictions. Because by banning all guns that can accept more than seven rounds, New York State has accidentally banned all of the most popular pump action shotguns. And since no one has really realized the implications of that magazine restriction, I figured it deserved to be explained in its own article." ...
