The 60s: Assassinations, a School Shooting, and Nazi Gun Control
Submitted by: Larry

"The 60s were a tumultuous time in America. There were the Vietnam War and its subsequent peace movement; the Kennedy assassinations; the Martin Luther King assassination, and the mass shooting at the University of Texas by Charles Whitman. The high-profile assassinations and the mass shooting prompted the government to lobby for stronger gun control, leading to the passage of the unconstitutional, NRA supported, 1968 Gun Control Act."

"With the exception of the Vietnam War and its protest activity, all of the above events played into the hands of the state and its never-ending efforts to disarm private citizens. ..." ...

"In an op-ed piece to the New York Times, President Jimmy Carter hasn't only his history wrong, he has his Constitution wrong. It is not the NRA, which insists on gun ownership, it is the Constitution's Bill Of Rights and the Founders who desired that we are the sovereign and not the public servants, past or present. I know that will get me intro trouble, but we do not challenge the authority we granted our servants, it is they who challenge our authority as the sovereign over them. Right wing extremist, my foot." ...

"I have been monitoring so-called Hate in America and I have a few observations. Let me say something about Hate ... largely in answer to a piece posted today at Timescall.com, Increase in hate groups is concerning."

"The piece by the anonymous editorial board at Timescall.com is tragically mistaken. Hate in America is not increasing, something else is. It is a combination of stress, doubt, a distrust of officials, and given their record, it is well deserved. This is not Hate."

"In the People, there is a great deal of worry and search for direction. They know that officials are now entirely indifferent to the needs of the electorate, and many have abandoned their loyalty to us. Pointing this out is not Hate." ...

... "But what is even worse, the U.N. and the international agreement and treaty process can be used to, in effect, amend, repeal and destroy our Constitution and way of life." ...

"Mr. Bolton, speaking to the [NRA] audience, illustrated this with gun control issues. The lobbying takes place at the U.N. ... And Mr. Bolton says there are more pro-gun control groups than you can count, and very few groups on the other side of the issue, such as the NRA. Mr. Bolton cautioned that the rights of American citizens to bear arms might be sacrificed in the haze of diplomatic negotiations leading to treaties at the U.N. Our basic rights are on the line if we’re not careful at the U.N., including rights under the Second Amendment." ...

"The Second Amendment does not prohibit local governments from regulating gun possession on their property, a panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held yesterday."

"The court held that the individual right to bear arms recognized last year by the U.S. Supreme Court binds state and local governments, but nonetheless rejected a challenge to an Alameda County ordinance prohibiting firearms on county property." ...

"... O'Scannlain agreed that the individual right to keep and bear firearms in the Second Amendment was incorporated against state and local governments under the Fourteenth Amendment's Due Process Clause."

"When President Obama was running for office, he consistently paid lip service to the second amendment while making comments about certain firearms that belong 'on a battlefield, not on the streets of Chicago' and that 'our playgrounds have become battlegrounds.' He has consistently stated his support for certain types of gun control, even on the White House website."

"Yet, gun control supporters have been frustrated thus far by the lack of a push for the kinds of legislation they want (repealing the Tiahrt Amendment, reinstating the 'Assault Weapons' ban, closing the mythical 'gun show loophole,' etc." ...

"Former President Jimmy Carter has added his voice to the whining chorus of complaints about the fact that peaceable American citizens can purchase semi-automatic rifles without becoming criminals." ...
"But none of us wants to own an assault weapon, because we have no desire to kill policemen or go to a school or workplace to see how many victims we can accumulate before we are finally shot or take our own lives. That's why the White House and Congress must not give up on trying to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, even if it may be politically difficult."

"In response to Dan Rodricks' column 'On guns, we lost an opportunity' (April 21), I would say that as a nation and a people, we cannot be too vain or too fearful to address gun violence and find new ways prevent it."

"The [NRA] and its allies would have everyone believe that any form of gun control is a slippery slope to banning guns entirely." ...

"The truth is that the NRA represents a small minority of American gun owners and that although most Americans support the right of law-abiding citizens to own guns, most also support tougher gun laws."

"... we are not truly free if we are not free from fear and free from violence in our communities and homes."

Why Not Gun Insurance? An Invitation to the NRA

"Bob Herbert's impassioned column in the NY Times this morning ... reviews the insanity of the role of guns in our society. 100,000 people a year are shot, 30,000 die. Average that for ten years, it's a million people shot, 300,000 die. That's the same as 600 Boeing 747s full of 500 people blowing up. How can we as a society continue to tolerate this slaughter?"

"I have a partial solution to offer. One that people on both sides of the Second Amendment debate might find acceptable. One that the NRA might be able to endorse. And one that will have the mighty insurance industry jumping for joy." ...

Submitter's Note: The only 'insanity' here is doing a cost-benefit analysis without looking at the benefits.

The insufferable hack Max Brantley is editor, columnist and blogger at the Arkansas Times.

This from the release, "Adapting to the times, the staff began the Arkansas Blog in the fall of 2004. Brantley is the primary, but not sole, contributor. The blog is a seven-day-a-week compilation of news, commentary and other articles of interest. “We stirred quite a bit of comment – not to mention legislation – by publishing on-line the list of people who hold concealed weapon permits in Arkansas,” Brantley said. “The blog has altered our lives in many ways.

"After fierce resistance from the gun lobby and its allies in Congress, Attorney General Eric Holder has dialed back talk about reimposing a federal assault weapons ban to help curb the spiraling violence in Mexico."

"As much as 90 percent of the assault weapons and other guns used by Mexican drug cartels are coming from the United States ... But the political obstacles to addressing the U.S.-to-Mexico weapons flow are dramatically underscored by Holder's experience in just the last few weeks." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
