"Greetings from The Constitution State, though at times over the past year I have questioned whether that proud name is valid any longer. For those who live outside Connecticut, you may think challenges to our state’s residents’ natural, individual, US and state Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms are something that only popped up in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown in late 2012. However, serious restrictionist gun control goes back over 20 years ..."

... "So let's look at the concept of 'guns everywhere,' and why it should be denigrated. Critics' objections would be at least somewhat less illogical if they could ... guarantee, in other words, that there would be no need for self-defense in such areas."

"So, for example, everyone knows there will never be a need to defend one's life (or the life of a loved one) in a bar. Oh, wait."

"Well, OK, but, come on, one would never need to defend one's life in a church. Um . . . sorry."

"Alright, fine, but airports? Uh . . . yep."

"But, but, but, schools . . . oh, never mind."

"In each case, only one example was given, but only for the sake of brevity, and not for lack of many more available examples." ...

"... Seldom has a sentence in the English language proved more divisive and controversial than the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. While both the pro- and anti-gun movements frequently take to the airwaves with equally strident and dogmatic representatives, it may surprise some to find that, in fact majorities of Americans – across party lines, no less –agree on the middle ground that gun ownership should be legal – but not without some restrictions." ...

"The New York Times never met a gun control bill they didn’t like. When New York’s SAFE Act was passed as an 'emergency measure' twenty-minutes after it was introduced in the legislature, nary a peep of protest did we hear from the Gray Lady. In fact, the paper’s editorial board lauded the act and all of it provisions ... As for the pre-existing requirements for firearms purchases – fingerprinting, background checks, tests, fees, etc. – and the de facto ban on law-abiding citizens carrying a concealed weapon in The Big Apple (which somehow doesn’t include the newspaper’s publisher), the NYT is A-OK with all of it.

"He stated that he was completely opposed to any private ownership of guns ..."

"He then went on to blame the reason guns are still legal in America is because of what he and other gun control supporters call the 'gun lobby.'" ...

"However, Morgan and others who want to advance a gun control agenda fail to mention that the NRA and similar groups that they define as the 'gun lobby' are composed of regular everyday Americans who support the Second Amendment and want to protect their freedoms. ..." ...

"One child or teen dies or is injured from guns every 30 minutes. More children and teens die from guns every three days than died in the Newtown massacre. The number of children under five killed by guns in 2010 was higher than the number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty that year." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: According to the Officer Down Memorial Page in 2010 there were 177 line of duty deaths in 2010. According to the CDC in 2010 there were 82 firearm related deaths among children under 5. On the other hand there were 642 non-firearm homicides of kids under 5 that same year. Sound like a homicide problem, not a gun problem.

"Greg Penglis reckons the Second Amendment is the Rodney Dangerfield of civil rights: it don’t get no respect. Writing for canadafreepress.com, the flight instructor argues that the government’s constant infringement on Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms is so egregious, it might as well read, 'A well equipped government, being necessary for security and order, the right of the government to be ultimately armed against the disarmed citizenry, shall not be infringed.'

"In his new book ... former U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens proves that retiring from the bench does not mean retiring from controversy. ... The issue is: does the Second Amendment guarantee that an individual can carry a gun solely for private purposes like self-defense, or is it a right that primarily extends to collective needs, such as maintaining a militia?" ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Settled law. SCOTUS ruled 9-0 in favor of the individual rights interpretation in Heller. As Justice Stevens said in his dissent:
The question presented by this case is not whether the Second Amendment protects a "collective right" or an "individual right." Surely it protects a right that can be enforced by individuals. But a conclusion that the Second Amendment protects an individual right does not tell us anything about the scope of that right."

School cultures had corroded in the wake of the 'due process revolution,' and absolutist rules were intended to shore up principals' authority to act promptly ..."

"But the rigid legal approach exemplified in zero tolerance rules has instead fostered a downward spiral of cynicism and legalisms. ... every few weeks, there are news reports of children suspended for harmless activities ... the honors student expelled because a kitchen knife was in the bed of his pickup truck ... or the second-grader suspended because he munched his pop tart into the shape of a gun." ...

Second amendment supporters had brought efforts to promote further infringements on their rights to a standstill in the state, but several bills are still in the legislative process. House Bill 7583 would mandate registration and restrict possession of 'assault weapons'. HB 7585 would ban magazines of more than ten rounds. HB 7584 would do both. An explanation of these bills, which are essentially gun bans, can be found here." ...

"The Supreme Court ruled in the 2008 case D.C. v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess weapons—or at least commonly used weapons—in the home. In 2010's McDonald v. Chicago, the Court found that states and localities were also barred from violating that right. But those landmark rulings left unsettled a host of important questions about how, when, and why the government can regulate or restrict gun rights." ...
