"Activist Russ Howard welcomes GOA’s alert as a desperately needed sea-change adjustment to the single-issue model that prevails in the gun rights community, just in time for a chance to defeat the 'Gang of 10’s' comprehensive open-immigration bill. 'This could be like a call from the governor 10 minutes before execution. What would we do without GOA and the other steadfast groups like Grassroots North Carolina and Oregon Firearms Federation?'”

Bill Maher called Boston police officers “unprofessional” on Friday for shooting at the boat where Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was hiding even though it turned out he was unarmed. ...
According to reports, no gun was found inside the boat after Tsarnaev was captured, although the Boston Police commissioner had earlier said that cops had exchanged fire with the suspect.
Maher also said that America is becoming a “police state.”

Submitter's comment: Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
 

Biden: Economy kept McCain from victory over Obama

On gun control, Biden said it's never been a simple issue, but that Congress has miscalculated how deeply the public feels about it and has failed to stand up to groups like the National Rifle Association, particularly after the shootings in Newtown. He said the public is looking to Congress to be mature enough to figure out a way to diminish the chance it will happen again.
"For the first time ever, you have people who are for gun safety, for increasing background checks," Biden said. "Two out of three of them say it will be a major determining factor in how I vote. That's the political dynamic that has changed. So I think we're going to get this anyway. I think this will pass before the year is out, within this Congress."
 

CA: Fifth-grader suspended at overnight nature camp for bringing Swiss Army knife

A fifth-grader in Cupertino, California was suspended and threatened with expulsion for bringing a small Swiss Army knife on a school-sponsored, science-oriented camping trip.

In early April, Braden Bandermann’s class set off on Garden Gate Elementary School’s annual, week-long pilgrimage for fifth-graders to Marin Headlands, just north of San Francisco.

The little blade landed the boy in big trouble.

“They called me,” explained Tony Bandermann, Braden’s father. “They said, ‘You have to come and get him. He has a weapon. He needs to be suspended or possibly expelled.’”

Bandermann believes school officials overreacted.
 

Reality TV show 'Guntucky' puts family-run gun range on the map

The Sumner clan is getting a national boost thanks to "Guntucky," a new reality show on CMT, but the stars of the family-run Knob Creek Gun Range has been famous among gun lovers for years.

The word started spreading in 1963 when Biff Sumner, Sr., first bought land on the edge of the woods surrounding Fort Knox Army Base about 20 miles south of Louisville, Ky., and invited a few friends over to fire off machine guns into the trees. Now, more than 16,000 people choke the gravel entrance to the property during its bi-annual Machine Gun Shoot, traveling from around the world to squeeze exotic triggers.

Under sunny skies, about 1,000 opponents of New York’s new gun control law filled the Chemung County Fairgrounds on Saturday to voice their displeasure. The rally filled much of the fairgrounds with people carrying signs and chanting slogans. “I’m an American veteran and I can’t get a pistol permit,” said William Reynolds, of Nichols. “It’s ridiculous. The so-called SAFE Act should be repealed.”
 

CA: California lawmakers weigh first statewide ban on lead ammo
Submitted by: D. Smith

In November, one of the oldest condors in Central California died from lead poisoning after being found with tiny bullet fragments and a .22-caliber slug in his gullet that he apparently swallowed with a mouthful of meat.

Now health-care advocates are taking a different tack, arguing that lead bullet fragments in game such as venison are neurotoxins that can harm children and developing fetuses.

Although hunting with lead bullets already is prohibited in eight counties with endangered California condors, the bill would make the ban statewide. About two dozen states have partial bans, mostly in sensitive wildlife refuges.

Joe Biden Readies Gun Control Advocates For Round Two

A week after the Senate failed to come up with 60 votes to pass a measure expanding background checks on gun buyers, Vice President Joe Biden regrouped with gun control advocates on Thursday and reassured them the White House isn't giving up the fight.
Biden made "a real commitment" to keep pushing for gun reforms, said Pia Carusone, executive director of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a gun control PAC run by former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband Mark Kelly. ...
Biden's message to the groups was, "It's the beginning. It's not the end," said Carusone. "The tone of the meeting was very positive. There is a collective sense that we are on the right side of history."

The threat emerged here in the evening darkness, as John Wolf was out for a walk on the fringe of his working-class neighborhood. The threat was a suspicious man, also on foot, coming right at him.

Wolf crossed the street, breathed easier and kept going. Soon enough, though, the same man sneaked behind Wolf and stuck a .38 caliber revolver into his neck.

“He must have told me he was going to kill me 10 times,” said Wolf, 59.
 

A Libertarian Case for Expanding Gun Background Checks

LAST week, senators blocked a compromise measure that would have compelled unlicensed sellers at gun shows and online gun sellers to conduct background checks, despite polls that showed that 90 percent of the public supported the idea.

I’m a libertarian who played a role in reducing handgun restrictions in the nation’s capital. In 2008, in a landmark case I helped initiate, Heller v. District of Columbia, the Supreme Court declared for the first time that the Second Amendment protected an individual’s right to bear arms.

Rimfire rounds rarely get a lot of notice, which is unfortunate. Lower velocity rimfire cartridges often make great training and plinking rounds, while faster loads are great for pest and varmint control. However, some rimfire cartridges now equal centerfire velocities and others are providing a credible service for self-defense.

IL: Quinn: Cities should approve concealed guns

With just 40 days before a federal court-ordered deadline to enact a law allowing public possession of firearms, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn is holding fast to the notion that decisions about who may carry guns — and where — should be made at city hall, not by a statewide standard.

But the reality in the Statehouse is that majority Democrats are having difficulty convincing lawmakers to leave any gun decisions to local control, even if it’s just for Chicago and Cook County, let alone giving police chiefs and county sheriffs statewide veto power.
 

NC: Want a handgun in N.C.? Get ready for paperwork

With all of the debate concerning guns in this country, I decided to explore what it takes to buy a firearm in North Carolina.

While we’ve owned guns in our family, they’ve been small-caiber family hand-me-downs. Buying a gun is something I had never experienced.

North Carolina is indisputably a pro-gun state.

Even Sen. Kay Hagan, a Democrat, defied her party’s line and voted against the so-called assault weapons ban while supporting a federalized background check and stiffer penalties on illegal sales.
 

FL: Military assault weapons should not be available to everyone

Sadly, some Washington politicians value the gun lobby over the Newtown parents and the will of the American people. It’s time to challenge the misinformation, which is based on fear, propaganda, money and the myth of power. The Second Amendment rights are not threatened by an assault weapons ban or background checks and the government is not coming for your guns. We are talking military style assault weapons and clips designed for mass killings, not used for hunting or self-protection.

The Second Amendment Foundation has threatened to sue 35 Maryland counties and local governments unless they repeal newly passed gun control laws.

The foundation, which is based out of Washington state, says Maryland is the third state it’s gone after as part of a nationwide effort to get rid of tighter gun control laws.
