... "An armed citizenry is not dangerous. Armed citizens who train, practice, exercise common sense in safety and use, are the best way for a society to survive the onslaughts of malcontents who steal, rape, and murder."

"And this is not to mention that an armed citizenry is the best way to remind government that it serves the people and not the other way around. Government should fear the citizens. Nothing keeps tyranny in check any better than for the tyrants to know that if they violate the clear principles of liberty they will be met with hoards of angry citizens with guns."

"The problem in Washington and in most states these days is that government is not sufficiently fearful of the citizens."

... "One thing Business is doing as a genuine act of concern for community is in lifting bans on handguns. Where the concern for safety had been to ban all evil, it has amounted yet again to the feel-good, do-exactly-the-wrong-thing approach in lumping customers and employees in with the evil that Business would like to stop at the door. Who can tell from the outside whether it was apprehension of liability or just plain ignorance? Customers have gotten killed by being disarmed, and all customers and employees have been defamed on the assumption that it is they who will eventually murder patrons. Banning the bans now finally entertains the question of why no one ever stopped the killers in time. ..." ...

"For Dick Heller, the battle to reclaim Second Amendment rights from the District of Columbia was over 30 years in the making, and it isn’t over yet."

"'They wouldn't let me have my gun,' he said, speaking at the 2009 New Hampshire Liberty Forum. 'I paid for it. It was mine. I live in America!'"

"Heller had just moved to D.C. and purchased his first gun in 1976 when the city passed its infamous gun ban ..." ...

"Heller decided not to register his gun during the 1976 amnesty, fearing a general gun confiscation ..."

"ARIZONA'S attorney-general, Terry Goddard, says he started to worry about American guns ending up in the hands of Mexican drug traffickers two years ago. That was after a meeting in Cuernavaca with Mexico’s attorney-general, Eduardo Medina Mora, who urged him ... to enforce the law banning the export of assault weapons that can be legally bought north of the border. Keen to help, Mr Goddard spent months building a case alleging that George Iknadosian, the owner of a Phoenix gun shop, had knowingly sold some 700 assault weapons to 'straw men' working for the narcos. It could have been a landmark case. Mr Iknadosian pleaded not guilty, and last month a state judge threw out all the charges against him on a point of law. ..." ...

KABA Note: The 'point of law' here was Mr. Iknadosian's innocence. "There is no proof whatsoever that any prohibited possessor ended up with the firearm," the judge said.

"As is being made increasingly clear, the 'More than 90% of the guns used by the drug cartels originate from U.S. gun sellers' (pdf file) claim, and variations thereof, is fiction, and bad fiction, at that. That this is becoming known is, I believe, as much to David Codrea's credit as anyone's."

"He really got it started Monday, with 'Do 90% of Mexican 'crime guns' come from U.S.?,' in which he pointed out the vast difference between the '90% of guns used by drug cartels' claim, and what government officials say under oath:"
"According to ATF's Tracing Center, 90 percent of the firearms about which ATF receives information are traceable to the United States." ...

"Mexican government corruption is not exactly a big secret:"
"Mexican government, police and military units struggle with corruption and direct links to drug cartels and immigrant smugglers ..."
"How unsurprising, therefore, to find that in spite of the media-driven claim that cartels get 90 % of their guns from the U.S. that the promulgators of that lie don't look at a more likely source of military-grade U.S. guns, government-to-government transfers."

"Al Gore tells us 'Facts are stubborn things.' How true. The assertion that 90% of the guns confiscated in Mexico come from the US has been debunked, yet the anti-gun crowd has scarcely missed a beat ... Tom Diaz is a senior policy analyst at the Violence Policy Center. He shrugged off the error and said 'Let's do what we can with what we know. We know that one hell of a lot of firearms come from the United States because our gun market is wide open.' In other words, even though their main reason just got kicked out from under them, they still want to close down gun purchases in this country ... The fact that law abiding citizens can buy guns legally in the US just seems to bug the heck out of these folks ..." ...
