"Floodwaters from Hurricane Sandy 'damaged tens of thousands of [New Jersey] mental health records used as part of background checks for gun purchases … meaning some prospective gun owners have not been able to buy pistols or rifles for several months,' The Wall Street Journal reported."

"'The months-long backlog coincides with a surge in gun ownership,' the story continued, spotlighting one resident who decided to protect himself following a rash of burglaries and has since been waiting almost half a year for the ID card the Garden State requires to purchase a firearm."

"'A right delayed is a right denied,' the would-be gun owner complained, echoing the famous quote by Martin Luther King. In this case, it’s not hard to see how such a delay could prove fatal." ...

"Media focus began shifting over the weekend to where the Tsarnaev brothers – suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings – got their guns and the fact that neither was licensed to have firearms in Cambridge, Mass."

"As predicted by this column, we are now reading about a 'cache of weapons,' though nobody so far seems to have described just how many firearms have been turned up. There are quotes from officials who are concerned about the number of guns and amount of ammunition Tamerlan and Dzhokhar apparently had, along with bomb-making materials." ...

"Although the vast majority of the carnage from the terrorism that paralyzed the Boston area for most of last week was committed with bombs, rather than guns, it would be a mistake to believe that these events will not weigh heavily in the gun rights/'gun control' debate. St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner predicted last week, for example, that a push for 'gunpowder control' would be one of the results, and within hours, rabidly anti-gun U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) fulfilled that prophecy." ...

"Four months ago, gun owners believed their world was about to close in around them, but today, polling by both Rasmussen and USA Today suggests that support for stronger gun control laws has waned considerably."

"Last week’s vote on background checks and other anti-gun legislation that proved to be an embarrassment for President Barack Obama was not the final nail in the gun prohibition lobby’s coffin, but it did demonstrate that reason is returning where emotion had been busy." ...

"When the New York Times reported Sunday about the 'four firearms' recovered by authorities investigating the Tsarnaev brothers, suspected of setting off the Boston Marathon bombs, the newspaper described them as an M-4 carbine, two handguns and a BB gun."

"It would come as a surprise to firearms experts, especially anyone located west of the Mississippi River, that a BB gun is a 'firearm.' BB guns do not use gun powder, but air, which is why they are also called 'airguns.'" ...

"In contrast to your April 19 editorial and some of your readers, I am pleased that the Senate voted down the proposed gun control legislation. I am not willing to trade my liberties for a false sense of security. The Senate bill would certainly not roll back the gun violence culture, as your editorial asserts."

"Gun rights advocates understandably celebrated Wednesday after the Senate failed to approve any gun control legislation. It's hard to say what is more gratifying--the defeat of even the 'universal background checks' legislation (once thought to be unstoppable, especially with ostensibly 'pro-gun' Republican Senator Pat Toomey on board), or the fact that Senator Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) bill to ban so-called 'assault weapons' went down by a bipartisan supermajority." ...

Check this: under its provisions, if cops catch someone in Rhode Island possessing an ammunition magazine that holds more than 10 cartridges (that was manufactured after July 1, 2013), the offender faces no less than 10 and no more than 20 years in jail.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
