"High Cap Freedom" -- The Sixth Reason

... "It has been called the 'elephant in the room' of American gun rights. Few in the Second Amendment movement are comfortable contemplating this critical issue. The matter is simple: 'We the People', as a coast to coast and border to border conglomerate, must retain the armed might to, FAILING ALL OTHER RECOURSE, overthrow our own government. It is a gut wrenching and heartbreaking option, but an option that must be potently retained for the sake of our liberty and the liberty of our descendants." ...

... "Thanks to many of you, conservative Justice David Prosser beat his liberal activist challenger by around 6,000 votes. Big national unions have spent millions of dollars on attack ads trying to smear Justice Prosser, and aren’t ready to accept election results and their defeat. Now they are funding a full statewide recount of the ballots, and have hired Al Franken’s attorneys to reverse the election results like they did in Minnesota. This race has become much bigger than just the two candidates – it is in fact a battle between big-government, entitlement addicted, anti-Second Amendment liberals, and conservative leaders trying to restore fiscal sanity." ...

... "The tension is underlined when this scene appears in Gun Fight, Barbara Kopple’s smart, provocative documentary on US gun control debates and gun culture, airing this month on HBO. John Wayne here is part of a montage of iconic media moments, including The Rifleman and Gunsmoke, Bonnie and Clyde and Scarface, all illustrating the appeal of guns—as signs of power, sexual potency, and rugged individualism. Indeed, these and other media images are crucial to the national debate, the film submits, as they inspire advocates of both gun control and gun rights." ...

"Several recent court decisions have concluded that the Second Amendment doesn’t protect gun possession in public places, but only in the home."

"I think that’s not correct, ... but today’s Commonwealth v. McCollum (Mass. App. Ct.), takes this even further, holding that the Second Amendment doesn’t apply even to possession of a gun at a friend’s — or, presumably, family member’s — home, apparently regardless of whether the resident has given permission:" ...

... "An Illinois bill working its way through the legislative process would actually help to make that self-defense possible. HB 3499 would dispense with the 72-hour waiting period generally required to purchase a firearm in Illinois, when the prospective buyer is under the protection of certain kinds of domestic violence related orders of protection. 72 hours, when unarmed and under threat from a rage-filled ex-boyfriend or estranged husband, can be a very long time. It can, in fact, leave someone waiting literally for the rest of her life." ...

"Did you know that the prices of guns are set to rise? One of our friends in the industry gave us the heads-up the other day, confirmed with a few phone calls to his rivals. The escalating cost of fuel is leading gunmakers to add a shipping charge to their products, which gun dealers will no doubt pass on to their customers. ... 'A lot of these guys can't afford these rifles, you know,' our ballistic contact told TTAG. 'They hide their purchases from their wives.' Nu-uh! We hide the price tag. 'Oh that? That’s for ammo. I gotta have ammo.' And now, perhaps, this $2199 piston-operated .308 Win caliber Precision Marksman SIG. Alternatively, consider the $1866 Patrol Version shown after the jump . . ." ...

... "What would you do if you see something that appears to be abduction? If the person is not with you or your group, do you get involved? Human nature is to be helpful. Combine that with a concealed handgun license and your carry handgun, maybe you can really help. Maybe stop a crime and prevent a missing person report. Can you? Should you?" ...

"I think this incident serves as a solid reminder to the CHL-holder. While concealed carry laws may prevent crimes since criminals no longer know who may be armed, it does not authorize the CHL to interject in another situation." ...

... "Those represent two of the most extreme cases of school violence in American history and are the worst-case scenarios for officials attempting to prevent such tragedy. Though distinctly different, there are common strategies that may have made a difference."

"The first, of course, is the need for open communication, especially between parents and children, since it identifies warning signs long before trouble. ...

Insiders claim ATF knew the buyers were connected to Mexico's drug cartels, but let the guns 'walk' onto the street anyway in a misguided attempt to obtain intelligence. ATF and the Justice Department have denied that."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the constitution they don't like. — Alan Dershowitz
