Soon after the election in the fall of 2008, gun dealers across the country saw a sharp uptick in their business. Customers were buying rifles and handgun at an unprecedented pace. Within weeks, many dealers were declaring a shortage of many popular weapons. Prices for guns, both at the dealers and at gun shows, rose quickly. Even on the wholesale market certain guns began to demand a higher premium. Even as the demand for guns was still high, another shortage began -- ammunition.

Gov. Deval L. Patrick's recently filed gun control legislation ought to leave most lawful gun owners in Massachusetts' feeling like Al Pacino in The Godfather, Part III: "Just when we thought we were out, they pull us back in."

State officials readily admit that Massachusetts already has some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation. Now, they have returned to file the "Act to Reduce Firearm Violence," a series of measures that take a scatter-shot approach to reducing gun violence in the state.

For decades, gun-grabbers in politics, academe and media have promoted various gun-control schemes to weaken if not ultimately eliminate the individual 2nd Amendment right of law-abiding American citizens to keep and bear arms.

They’ve proposed federal firearms registration, gun-owner licensing, handgun-purchase waiting periods, one-gun-a-month handgun-purchase limitations, bans on inexpensive handguns, bans on semiautomatic firearms, bans on .50-caliber firearms, bans on personal defensive firearms use, limitations on gun shows, and almost any other restrictive approach they can dream up.

Signs that segments of the nation’s economy struggling are nearly endless, but the sales of guns is not one of them.

Sales of handguns, rifles and shotguns remain high, area dealers say, and the surge in sales following the results of the November election continue.

Zeke Garretson, owner of Garretson’s Sports Center, 3817 10th St., in Greeley, said sales of guns, particularly handguns, has been steady since late last year. The current buying frenzy, he said, started the day after Barack Obama was elected president. He said he has heard customer after customer explain they are buying weapons ‘‘while they still can’’ or something to that effect.

Until the new law takes effect, DOI says it will continue to enforce the current laws governing possession of firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges. “Under the current regulation, firearms are generally prohibited, but citizens may transport unloaded and dismantled or cased firearms and carry firearms while participating in approved hunting programs and under certain other circumstances," stated the DOI in a press release.

According to DOI spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff, the agency will begin dealing with the new law by attempting to “understand and interpret its implications for our national parks and wildlife refuges, with public safety and the safety of our employees as our foremost consideration.”
 

NY: Second Amendment is not about hunting

At this time, very few people trust anything the government is doing or has done. Does anybody even know what our government may be like a year from now, let alone 10? Can anybody tell me what our government does well?

Just a short time ago the head of the Department of Homeland Security had to apologize for a leaked memo to law enforcement naming half the country as possible domestic terrorists. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It’s about our protection from enemies, both domestic and foreign. The founding fathers had just fought a revolution. Does anybody believe it has anything to do with hunting?
 

NY: Second Amendment Rights In Jeopardy

...I was appalled that the Assembly voted a day before scheduled. I was horrified to think this may have been a tactic used by our representatives to avoid hearing from the NYS sportsmen en route to protest these anti-gun bills on the 29th.

I was walking through the fields with my mom and dad while our dogs ran - blithely unaware of the bleak political dangers waving like a falling flag over the horizon. My dad carries his cell phone and pistol for safety reasons .... His phone rang. It was a fellow hunting buddy who was outraged after reading the article. At the end of the conversation Dad grimaced and said, 'Don't cuss in church, and say a prayer for our Constitution."
 

NV: Amendments should at least relate to bills

I’m fed up with congressional secretive sleight-of-hand shenanigans. If we don’t prioritize the need for campaign finance reform, elections are a joke. For me, slipping an amendment into the credit card reform bill that will let people carry guns in national parks is the last straw.

If you ever wondered who runs Congress, look no further than well-funded special interest groups. In this case, it’s the National Rifle Association. For this we pay our elected officials? Ah, but so do they. I suspect their political donations make federal salaries (with generous benefits) look like chump change.
 

Democrats in power hand victories to NRA

President Obama and his allies in Congress have given the gun lobby a string of victories - from forgoing new gun laws to easing restrictions already on the books - since Mr. Obama took office and Democrats assumed complete command of political power in Washington.

Democratic leaders in Congress tend to support more restrictive gun laws but have yielded on the issue since a majority of their rank-and-file members increasingly side with the National Rifle Association (NRA) when votes involve the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
 

UT: Be careful with intent when quoting the U.S. Constitution

Quoting the Constitution to make a point is pointless. One must be able to logically show why the quote is meaningful. This requires a knowledge of history that is rarely evident in some letters to the editor.

On April 28, a person wrote to decry individual ownership of firearms. He cited the U.S. military and local police as our protectors. His letter created a firestorm of replies in opposition.

So, here is some factual history about the Constitution and the men who put it into its original form.
 

The Predictable Consequence of Waco Rules: "You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you."

Jackie Junti sends (a link and a quote): "You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you." According to the story, people in black robes are getting frightened. Given outrages of justice such as the Olofson case, I reckon they have a right to be.
I have long contended, attempting to warn those who think the Leviathan can act with impunity, that if the law and the Constitution no longer protect us, then it no longer protects them either. This is the predictable consequence of Waco Rules, reinforced by the object lesson of the blatant framing of David Olofson. Why, if we cannot expect a fair trial in federal court, SHOULD we respect federal judges? There is certainly no incentive to do so.
 

"Only those who are willing to die are fit to live." -- Remembering Captain Joe Barker on Memorial Day.

Joseph Rhett Barker, II . . .was born in Birmingham on 27 April 1915. . . . 1927 was a good year for the Barkers. With the Crash of 1929, however, the family's wealth disappeared virtually overnight. Forced to sell the estate, Joe's father moved his family to Milner Crescent, a modest home not too far from the church that was the center of family affairs. Reverend Edmonds, a vocal opponent of the Klan and a supporter of racial tolerance in the 1920's, often received death threats and yet the Barkers stood by him, even though it is certain that Joseph H. Barker lost business as a result. This must have had a profound effect on young Joe and I think it paid him dividends later in life when he was assigned to the Philippines.

 

NRA Urges Us to Remember 2nd Amendment on Memorial Day

This weekend, our country will celebrate Memorial Day. We'll cookout, relax, and visit with friends and family. But this holiday weekend is about more than barbeques, swimming pools, and family get-togethers. As we celebrate the Memorial Day Weekend, let us keep in mind what we are "celebrating" -- those who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that Americans, and people around the world, would be able to reap the benefits of freedom. We should remember, too, the one freedom that we as Americans enjoy -- the one that protects all our other freedoms -- the Second Amendment. Those who fought and died on the battlefield did so to protect our country, our way of life, and our freedom.

To gun owners who think taking a basic course and shooting holes in paper prepare them for armed self-defense, let me assure you nothing could be further from the truth. The fourth in the “Armed self-defense” series covers the Phase I of the Practical/Tactical (P/T I) pistol course taught by Eagle Rock Training Systems veteran instructors Tom Iradi and Scott Mauldin.

In The Killing Zone, one of the best Vietnam War memoirs, Frederick Downs opens with this preface:


In the fall of 1968, as I stopped at a traffic light on my walk to class across the campus of the University of Denver, a man stepped up to me and said, "Hi."

Without waiting for my reply to his greeting, he pointed to the hook sticking out of my left sleeve. "Get that in Vietnam?"

I said, "Yeah, up near Tam Ky in I Corps."

"Serves you right."

As the man walked away, I stood rooted, too confused with hurt, shame, and anger to react.
