... "Gun Rights Examiner has gone through extensive follow-up on this story after the Perazzi press release, explaining all of the verification efforts gone through before publishing the story, and the subsequent outreach to FOX31, to law enforcement and to Perazzi after the company dismissed it as a fabrication. Conversations have also been held with other media personnel including 9NEWS, a Colorado Gun Collectors Association official, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, and other potential witness leads that turned out to have merely heard the story from others." ...

"Today, the Adams County, Colo. Sheriff’s Office is blasting what appears to have been a massive hoax that raced across the internet over the weekend, ensnaring a prominent gun rights writer, one Denver television station, several Second Amendment activists on a popular Northwest gun rights forum and a well-known Second Amendment attorney." ...

... "For 13 hours on the Senate floor this March, Paul railed on the government's willingness to use armed drones on American civilians, even suggesting that the government could use an unmanned plane to kill an American eating dinner with his family. But he never mentioned the possibility that the person flying the drone could be a neighbor."

"That idea sounds farfetched, but some legal scholars think that Second Amendment rights might extend to robotic arms, including drones outfitted with weapons." ...

Ad Campaign Compares Gun Control to Gay Marriage, Enrages Hippies

"When it comes to which amendments in the Bill of Rights modern liberals support, they’re highly selective. All rights are equal, but some are more equal than others. ... Rachel Maddow froths at the mouth and claims the Constitution to be a living document when someone starts talking about gun rights, but as soon as the AP’s phone records get a peek from the FBI, she provides a full throated defense of the first amendment as-written, as if it were a commandment from God above. So naturally, now that a series of posters started springing up in Washington state comparing gun rights to some other personal liberties, the local hippy population is up in arms about the affront to their sensibilities. Salon.com picks up the party line . . ." ...

"Most Americans agree that the 2nd Amendment gives individuals right to bear arms, according to a 2003 Gallup poll. But recent tragic events like the shootings in Newtown have reignited the debate about gun ownership in America. Particularly inflammatory to some is the marketing of guns towards children."

"The Crickett rifle, made by Keystone Sporting Arms in Milton, PA, is branded as 'My First Rifle', and comes with a stuffed animal of the company's little green mascot at the point of sale. It is the same rifle used by a 5-year-old Kentucky boy who tragically shot and killed his 2-year-old sister in late April."

"Some gun enthusiasts say that introducing their children to shooting at a young age is part of their way of life. Mallorie Moore is a gun owner and parent of a 3-year-old daughter, for whom she just bought a little pink rifle." ...

"Did you know that all handguns are semi-automatic? This means that all that stands between you and death is the pull of a trigger. Limited access to handguns would decrease violence, as has been proven in the past by numerous laws. In addition, the mass killings that throw a blanket of loss and sorrow upon our nation can only be done with guns."

"The opposing argument – that the Second Amendment applies and gives us the right to possess guns – is not supported with evidence, and is plain hogwash. ..." ...

"Imagine if the Founding Fathers had written an amendment to support the South’s important tobacco industry, providing that the right to smoke must not be infringed. Had that happened, there would be people today — though smoking is a major health issue — saying that any government regulation of tobacco would be an act of tyranny. To those people, once in the Constitution, forever frozen in the mind." ...

"The original Liberator handgun was printed using an $8,000 piece of equipment the size of a refrigerator. But for most people, something like a 'Lulzbot AO-101' is more affordable at around $1,750.

"Plastic, schmastic. While the 3D printer was the first step toward easily making your very own firearms at home, the technology still has its limits. Namely, it can only really print in plastic — not exactly the optimal medium for something that goes bang. For centuries, metal’s been the gunsmith’s medium of choice. These days, crafting it into pistol parts is a job for a CNC machine. Unfortunately, they’ve been way too big and far too expensive for the average Jane or Joe to have one in the privacy of their very own home. Until now . . ." ...

"Jimmy Lee Garrett, 48, of Alabama is a registered sex offender who has been arrested twice in 1985 for first-degree sodomy and first-degree sexual abuse of a 69-year-old woman.

Garret was most recently released from jail on April 21, 2013 according to a DailyHome.com report."

"Alabama state lawmakers worked late into the night yesterday considering last minute bills before the close of their legislative session. One of the bills being considered was a bill that would allow rural teachers with a concealed carry permit to carry firearms to school to protect themselves and children."

"The bill actually already passed the state legislature earlier this year, but was vetoed by Governor Robert Bentley, citing his concerns for insufficient training requirements. In a rare show of bipartisanship at any level of government, a coordinated effort by lawmakers got the votes needed and actually overrode the governor’s veto." ...

"This was the scene yesterday, where thousands of pro-Second Amendment New Yorkers descended on Albany to make their voices heard in opposition of the SAFE Act that was rammed through the legislature and signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo. It was a throng that made every gun control meet-up look like a Sunday morning sewing circle by comparison. And yet the mainstream media really couldn’t be bothered. A dozen gun control advocates outside the NRA convention will get national coverage, but thousands of pro-gun Empire Staters, pissed off at their government, goes almost unnoticed. Head on over to the Times Union site for the full story, but here’s the highlight of the article for me . . ." ...

"Norwood resident William Gray, who has been making the round of town and village board meetings around the county, presented the village’s Board of Trustees with a resolution calling for the repeal of the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, saying the swiftly passed bill is filled with errors and inconsistencies and infringes upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners. He called the controversial package of strict gun control measures a 'knee-jerk reaction to the Sandy Hook shooting.'" ...

"I’m old enough to remember when Kelly LeBrock was the world’s most beautiful woman. Actually, I’m older than that. I remember ... growing up during the not-so-beautiful 'police action' in Vietnam. The war in Southeast Asia amplified and radicalized America’s political and cultural bifurcation. It was Left vs. Right. Anti-Establishment vs. Establishment. The tension led to violence: Kent State, busted heads at the Chicago convention and deadly riots. I guess we didn’t learn from history. Two visions of America—Big Government vs. Small Government, Gun Control vs. Gun Rights—are competing for dominance. It’s like tectonic plates building up pressure; there will be a release and it won’t be pretty. Where? Odds are it’ll be . . ." ...
