... "That’s why the growing new paradigm represented by the 'I will not compl'” movement represents such a threat to those who would rule. Because ultimately, when the system results in tyranny, an armed people retain the power to nullify bad enforcement just as informed jurors have the power to nullify bad edicts. Of course the outcome of that is not assured (what is?), but to those who have made the choice between defiance and surrender, it beats the alternative." ...

... "'People keep saying, 'We need to have a conversation about race,' Morrison said. 'This is the conversation. I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back. And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman. Then when you ask me, 'Is it over?', I will say yes.'"

"This is what she wants to see? Cops killing other human beings based solely on their race? Women being sexually assaulted, again, all based on race?"

"How very progressive.” ...

"There are many great reasons to support private firearm ownership—not the least of which is the fact that the Second Amendment guarantees our God-given right to keep and bear arms. That’s reason enough to never back down in the battle against those who would diminish our rights."

"But it’s likely that most gun-ban advocates—and even some people on our side of the debate—don’t realize the important impact gun and ammo sales have on the American economy."

"According to a recent report published by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the total economic impact of the firearms and ammunition industry in the United States increased from $19.1 billion in 2008 to a whopping $42.9 billion in 2014. ..." ...

"We’ve posted from time to time about the ongoing encroachment of new gun control laws passed by the states, including Connecticut, New York, Maryland, and most recently Washington. A bill has now been proposed in the Oregon legislature that is similar to the “universal background checks” law passed in Washington State late last year."

"Like their fellows in Connecticut, New York, and Washington, Second Amendment activists in Oregon are resisting this tyrannical move by their elected representatives. ..." ...

"In the ongoing fight to restore Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, there are pro-gunners who support pragmatic incrementalism. They’re OK with laws clawing-back some gun rights, to prepare the political soil for a future day’s harvest. There are others who believe that 'shall not be infringed' means 'shall not be infringed.' Any stance removed from that position is abject capitulation to gun control advocates; an unacceptable compromise that emboldens the enemies of firearms freedom. We’ve seen this dilemma in . . ." ...

Despite what Michael Bloomberg says, Maine should allow concealed carry

"With half-truths and outright lies, billionaire Michael Bloomberg is heading north to meddle with the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding people in Maine."

"Bloomberg’s goal is to force his gun-control agenda on Americans one state at a time. His target is LD 652, the constitutional carry bill sponsored by state Sen. Eric Brakey, R-Auburn."

"In Maine, it is legal to openly carry a firearm without a permit. But under current law, if a man’s firearm is covered by a coat or a woman prefers to carry her gun in a purse, he or she is required to obtain a concealed carry handgun license. LD 652 simply extends the Maine open carry permitting guidelines to those who wish to carry a firearm for protection concealed." ...

"In the gun blogging business, some headlines jump right out at you. Like newsweek.com‘s post Will Guns on Campus Lead to Grade Inflation? The simple, indeed inescapable answer to that question is 'no.' If you need more, 'no it won’t.' And yet there it is: an article that cries out for fisking. (There’s a execrable pun there but I’ll demure.)

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America Launches SMART Campaign

"Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is nothing if not mercurial. Run by former Monsanto PR flack Shannon Watts, backed by billionaire anti-ballistic bully boy Michael Bloomberg, MDA has focus-grouped their way through an endless series of pro-gun control marketing campaigns, never settling on any one message. Not that I’m complaining; the Moms’ lack of brand discipline is a blessing for firearms freedom folk. MDA has a new angle for Mother’s Day 2015. Unfortunately or fortunately (depending on your perspective), their latest effort is pro-gun safety – actual gun safety – rather than anti-gun agitprop. Or is it? Here’s their SMART crusade in an acronym-shaped nutshell . . ." ...

"Want to cough up some bucks for a worthy cause and spend an evening at one of America's top hotels? The folks at the Brady Center are kicking off this year's ASK campaign with a gala banquet and fundraiser at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, at which time they will honor Donna Dees-Thomases who organized the Million Mom March on Washington, D.C. Her efforts brought three-quarters of a million people into the nation's capital on May 14, 2000, and marked the beginning of grass-roots campaigns to promote gun safety, gun safety laws and more discussion about gun violence, in particular, the impact of gun violence on kids." ...

... "In the past two decades the gun rights moment has been extremely effective using basic psychological processes to shape and stifle the debate about guns. First, it classically conditioned the notion of gun ownership to freedom. Like Pavlov’s dog, we were taught to salivate about freedom every time restrictions on guns were mentioned. If you believe in freedom, you believe in guns: unfettered, unregulated, uncontrolled."

"Then the gun rights movement added displacement, linking the American flag with a gun, and a lethal weapon became a substitute object for patriotism, belief in the Constitution, an expression of uniquely American values. If you believe in America, you believe in guns: unfettered, unregulated, uncontrolled." ...

"The Oregon Senate passed a wide-ranging ivory ban bill Tuesday, Oregon Firearms Federation, a statewide 'no compromise”'gun rights advocacy group, told members via an email and website alert. The bill, sponsored by Democrat Sen. Mark Haas, was passed along party lines with one Republican, Brian Boquist, crossing the aisle to help it pass.

Senate Bill 913 purports to protect endangered species by banning 'trafficking' in ivory taken from, among other animals, mammoths, which are extinct. Additional confusion is caused by one of its 'exceptions.'" ...
 

Why the Bill of Rights Would Never Pass Today

"Having watched closely the manner in which questions of liberty and power are batted around in the first part of the 21st century — most recently during the disgraceful contretemps that Indiana’s rather tame Religious Freedom Restoration Act provoked across the land — I have come to wonder of late whether the Bill of Rights could be ratified today." ...

"To run down the list is to see the modern objections fall neatly into place. As it is so often, the Second Amendment would be cast as a recipe for 'Wild West' anarchy, an open invitation to sedition for those white, mountain-dwelling racists of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s nightmares, and an overture to the execution of children. ..." ...

"A shopper with a concealed weapons permit shot and killed a man who was trying to carjack a woman Saturday outside a Utah grocery store, officers said."

"The 31-year-old male shooter was in Macey's parking lot in Orem, 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, when he heard a woman's screams as she was being pulled from her SUV by the suspect, investigators said."

"The man told police he went to assist the woman, and the 27-year-old male suspect lunged at him in an attempt to grab his gun."

"The man fired one round at the suspect, hitting him in the chest. The suspect later died at a hospital."

"No other injuries were reported." ...

(No, Hillary Clinton was not there, but I assume you know her position on guns and Liberty!) They each delivered brief remarks regarding their record of support for the Second Amendment, and below I have provided links to each speaker's comments."

"However, before going there, allow me to provide a brief context for their remarks, and note that I can assure you: Each and every speaker clearly grasped and articulated two key principles." ...

... "... Just remember and don’t be fooled by the administration’s recent decision to back off from its proposed ban on common rifle ammunition. Even their own words, 'at this time'–leave no doubt that their scheme to ban even more ammunition will be back."

"The BATFE director Todd Jones has suggested that any 5.56 round–not just the M855 version–should be banned."

"Why is the President pushing this ammo ban so hard ? Because if he can set a precedence by banning AR-15 ammunition, he is well on his way to banning any and all ammo."

"Simply put, if he can ban one type of ammunition, he can ban it all." ...

... "GUNS: With memories of a November shooting at Florida State University fresh in their minds, lawmakers this session waded into an emotional debate about allowing people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry guns on college and university campuses. Supporters said more people carrying guns would improve campus safety, while opponents said it would create dangers. In the end, the proposal died quietly, as the Senate Judiciary Committee did not take it up. Also, the Senate Education Pre-K-12 Committee scuttled another controversial proposal that would have allowed school superintendents to designate trained employees or volunteers to carry guns at public schools. ..." ...

"There are powerful forces at work in the Legislature to try to water down several important Second Amendment bills that have been introduced this session. One such bill, H562, we have been reporting on was saved by the skin of its teeth last week and sent to the Appropriations Committee to keep it alive. It will be debated and possibly voted on Wednesday, May 6 at 8:30 a.m."

"One reason it is important that it pass the Appropriations Committee is that it is one of the largest committees in the House and passage there is a pretty good indication of what will happen on the floor. If the Appropriations Committee does not give it a Favorable Report it could still be passed but only if the top leadership interceded. ..." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I've realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it's much, much bigger than that. I've come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated. — Charlton Heston
