... "That said, unless and until such changes in federal law are made, or until the Supreme Court decides on the issue (with a ruling not expected until June), the 'gun control' package being pushed by the administration will, if passed, continue to, in Obama’s words about marriage equality, 'deny gay and lesbian couples the same rights and legal protections as other couples.'” ...

... "What’s the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Rhode Island gun owners send a few emails, make a few phone calls and simply show up at State House hearings ... will get the same result as gun owners who testified in front of legislators in New York, Maryland and Connecticut. They will lose."

"Rhode Islanders, we will lose our right to own, purchase and sell modern sporting rifles. We will lose our right to own, purchase and sell standard capacity ammunition magazines. We will lose our right to 'shall issue' concealed firearm permits to protect ourselves, our families and other innocent life. That’s insane."

Apparently, parents offended by the episode were a bit thin on the ground. ... Well I was upset that the producers didn’t take the chance to show a proper response to a school shooter like STFU, muting phones, properly barricading the doors, maintaining a positive indeed agressive mindset, etc. [Click here for the real deal].

"Cyberculture icon Stewart Brand’s famous notion that 'information wants to be free' has been an almost ubiquitous refrain ever since utopian-minded hackers began populating computer networks in the 1980s. Today, 3D printing has given the phrase a whole new meaning, allowing raw data to become real world weapons with the click of a button. Cody R. Wilson, the antagonistic founder of Defense Distributed, is taking that idea to its logical — and hugely controversial — extreme."

"Having recently obtained his federal manufacturing license, Wilson hopes to release files for the world’s first fully 3D-printable firearm by the end of this month. His past progress has already thrown a major wrench into America’s resurgent gun control debate ..." ...

... "Expanding background checks for would-be gun owners is a commonsense proposal much like requiring a photo ID before someone is allowed to vote. Both have overwhelming support."

"But while people think requiring more background checks makes sense, most don’t think it will make much of a difference. Only 41% believe more background checks will reduce gun violence."

"Second, people want to make sure the checks are limited to only restricting convicted felons and those with serious mental health issues. Only 30% want broader background checks."

"Third, just 40% want to see a national database of gun owners created. This last point really frustrates some advocates of gun control, including President Obama." ...

"True assault weapons are used by our military/police services and are not available to us under current law. They include the M-14/16 and M-60, etc., and are all fully-automatic."

"NASCAR will be taking a closer look at its sponsorship deals in the wake of criticism over its partnership with the National Rifle Association, its spokesman said Friday."

"Last month, NASCAR announced that the gun lobbying group was sponsoring Saturday's Sprint Cup -- named the NRA 500 -- at the Texas Motor Speedway. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) objected to the deal, saying 'it would be imprudent for NASCAR to step into such a heated political debate and take sides in this debate by allowing the NRA the title role in the race.'" ...

No one in our family ever took a rifle down from the wall and used it for any other purpose. ... Undoubtedly, had we lived in a crime ridden, urban setting, guns might have been used for self-defense."

"The issue of the Second Amendment never came up. We were taught that it was put in the Constitution because the British government seized our hunting rifles and placed soldiers in our homes against our will. They couldn't have foreseen civilians owning assault rifles with large magazines capable of mass murder. How can a free people be free to pursue happiness in such an environment?" ...

"As the Senate opened debate on gun control measures for the first time in nearly 20 years, the path ahead for any gun control measure in the Republican-led House of Representatives is rocky and uncertain."

"Family members of those killed in the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, spent three days shuffling from meeting to meeting with senators urging swift action. But across the Capitol, there is no sense of urgency as most rank and file House GOP members are taking a wait and see approach to moving any gun bill, while a bloc of Republicans members are solidly against considering new gun restrictions." ...

"Pennsylvania, Georgia and Virginia have long been bastions of gun-rights supporters, with vast rural areas and strong hunting traditions. But in recent days, lawmakers from those states have demonstrated a new willingness to back stricter firearms regulations, setting the stage for what could be the first major gun-control legislation to pass Congress in two decades."

"The shift underscores a new reality of gun politics in America: The rapid growth of suburbs in historically gun-friendly states is forcing politicians to cater to the more centrist and pragmatic views of voters in subdivisions and cul-de-sacs as well as to constituents in shrinking rural hamlets where gun ownership is more of a way of life." ...

Legitimate gun dealers are already required to do these checks, so how would extending this requirement to online purchases and gun shows threaten our constitutional rights?"

Then, in an even more bizarre twist, he despicably equated millions of law-abiding and respectable gun owners to 'drug dealers and wife beaters.'" ...
