David Codrea: Why is NRA Ignoring Santa Barbara Gun Owners?

"I've been compiling 'testimonials' from Santa Barbara area gun owners concerning their attempts to contact NRA about their A rating and endorsement of anti-gun Sheriff Bill Brown. ..."

"This will be a long post, but I think you'll get the gist pretty quickly. ..." ...

"It's evident the powers that be are hoping this will go away. Too bad."

"It can't--not until the political 'experts' come clean with why they misled their members on Brown's stance on their right to keep and bear arms, and come up with some ... credibility on future ratings and endorsements."

"One thing is for sure--ignoring all these requests is no way to endear grassroots supporters to an organization that purports to represent their interests." ...
 

'The Dead Horse in the Living Room:' School Shootings

... "The dead horse on the living room floor. It's there all right and we are most certainly aware of its presence, yet we pretend that it doesn't exist. ... We hide from the truth. It might belie our self opinion, our perception of the world around us, it might make us think, change our minds."

"Well? There's a dead horse on the living room floor. At least when we think of school security, and the possibility of some nut case coming in and shooting up the place, and the people inside. We are loathe to discuss the dead horse because we don't want to contemplate the fact that we would have to do something tangible about it. So we simply tiptoe over it and try to ignore its presence. And we pray that others will do the same." ...

"I don't believe I've ever agreed with Jack LeMoult. I've never disagreed with him more than the column, Guns and Masculinity. He puts forth more of the same arguments that have been made time and again. 'Blood will run in the streets' or 'Dodge City all over again' is the rallying cry. It is always the gun control movement's answer. It is always wrong. It was heard in the 1980s when Florida first passed concealed carry. It was heard in every state that followed including Ohio in 2004. And in every instance it has been a lie." ...

"On April 19, 1775, the town of Concord, Massachusetts was the scene of an interesting confrontation. ... The wife of Nathan Barrett, captain of one of Concord's militia companies, spotted one of her husband's men skedaddling home. She went out of her house to confront him, and when he explained that he was feeling ill, she responded that he must not take his gun with him. When he replied simply, 'Yes, I shall,' she exclaimed, 'No, stop, I must have it.' ..."

"The confrontation between Mrs. Barrett ... and the militiaman captures the clash of community obligation, public safety, private interests, and individual rights that lies at the heart of the legal and historical debate over the meaning of the Second Amendment. ..." ...

Questions are still arising but not as many answers, I would say appropriate answers, are forth coming. Among the many questions asked is the one as to whether or not it's time to introduce more severe gun control or to simply repeal the second amendment to the constitution with regard to the right to bear firearms. The Second Amendment Foundation ... affirms that the Virginia Tech massacre underscores the importance of the second amendment right.

"After the horrific Virginia Tech massacre, Americans are once again focusing on the distressing topic of school violence, which is most prevalent not on college campuses but in the nation's high schools. In New York, critics disagree about whether school crime is going up or down. Mayor Bloomberg announced in February that crime had fallen significantly at certain schools ... the very next day, however, the New York Times countered with an article claiming that major crime in New York City schools had risen 21 percent in the first third of the fiscal year."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

It was show-and-tell, sort of, at a Queens elementary school Thursday.

A 7-year-old boy brought an unloaded .38 caliber handgun to PS 63 in Ozone Park, authorities said. Apparently, another student saw the gun and alerted a teacher -- who took the weapon from the boy.

Police were questioning the boy's mother and 14-year-old brother at the 106th precinct.

"The state Senate passed a controversial gun-control bill Wednesday night that could make failure to report the loss or theft of a gun within 72 hours a crime."

"The bill is intended to reduce the volume of stolen guns used in violent crimes."

"By a 24-11 vote, the Senate passed a measure that has generated controversy at the Capitol for years and was rejected by the House of Representatives last year. The bill now goes to the House, but some representatives who voted against it last year were defeated in the November election." ...

"Sen. Anthony Guglielmo ... said the bill makes no sense. If a person's car is stolen and then used in a crime, the police would never attempt to charge the original owner of the car, he said." ...

"Current Missouri law justifies the use of deadly force only if people believe it's necessary to protect themselves or others from death or serious injury."

"The bill – SB62 – would give people in homes as well as car and truck drivers wide discretion in the use of deadly force against intruders. People would be immune from criminal and civil actions for killing or injuring someone in self-defense ..." ...

"To reiterate, a prospective concealed handgun license holder must undergo an extensive background check, attend classroom training that focuses on how to stay out of altercations with a firearm, understand firearms laws and demonstrate proficiency with the firearm."

"After all that, the applicant must pay a state fee for a CHL license ... I don't think, after going through all of the above, that a licensed handgun holder would start shooting in a bar. Most people carry for the purpose of self-defense." ...

"I read the good doctor's anti-gun diatribe ('More Guns, More Crime,' May 19) and would like to make a few points of my own."

"The Virginia Tech shooter was not armed with 'assault weapons.' His tools were of a sort that are carried by law enforcement officers and citizens for self defense; a function they perform millions of times each year. They are most effective in an offensive capacity when employed in a 'gun-free' zone."

"... The Second Amendment has nothing to do with a citizen's right to hunt or grocery shop. It's all about preventing a government by the people from becoming an oppressor of the people. And, of course, there’s that pesky right to defend one's own life and the lives of his loved ones." ...
