... "'[I]t does, at least, suggest—indeed, demonstrate—that minds can be changed on the matter,' Nudd insisted. 'And it’s chilling in the video to see the actual guns that were used in notorious crimes, and must have been that much more so in person.'"

"The guy swallowed it hook, line and sinker, didn’t he? Even after being told the setup was a fake, this media 'professional,' who immerses himself for a living in the stuff that dreams are made of, accepted without question that the rest of the illusion must be real—because, after all, it was a public service announcement. Besides, who’s ever known an advertising agency to stretch the truth?"

"Yesterday’s decision by [SCOTUS] to turn down an appeal of restrictive gun laws in San Francisco throws the door open to more billionaire-funded initiatives to require so-called 'safe storage' of firearms, and push for bans on some of the most common ammunition available for hunting, self-defense and competition."

"Writing for SCOTUSblog yesterday, Lyle Denniston observed, 'The refusal to review the case ... was the latest in a string of such orders, declining to clarify the personal right to have a gun, first established seven years ago and extended nationwide five years ago, but not explained further in the years since. ... [T]he Court did not explain why it was choosing to remain on the sidelines.'" ...

"Sometimes, certain people just aren’t cut out to carry a firearm — let alone own one. It takes a certain type of person to own and carry, and it’s a responsibility that every single potential gun owner needs to consider. Some need to ask themselves: 'Am I too stupid to own/carry a firearm?' . . ."

"If you’re teaching someone how to clear a firearm and negligently shoot them in the foot, you may be a bad candidate for a concealed carry permit." ...

"Gun control advocates’ crusade for 'gun safety' is a sham. Although they won’t admit it – lest they lose popular support – the antis believe that guns are only safe when they’re in the hands of the police and/or the military. Which is a really scary thought, what with the Holocaust, ISIS and the unfathomable suffering of Mexico’s unarmed rural population as our guide. But it’s not a thought that occurs to John Sutija, writing for fiusm.com . . ." ...

In its relentless pimping for the gun industry, the NRA has unleashed an avalanche of deadly weapons on this gun-crazy country. Just as [it] protects access to weapons for cops and hunters, it also protects access to weapons for domestic abusers, mental patients, jerk-offs on the no-fly list, all-around dim bulbs, and now little children." ...

"There is outrage growing today within the firearms community over the lack of attention from the mainstream press to the slaying of New Jersey resident Carol Bowne, for whom funeral services will be held Wednesday."

"Is it just possible that Bowne’s horrific story is being overlooked because it amounts to an indictment of New Jersey’s draconian gun laws? With the possible exception of the Courier Post in Cherry Hill, which has covered the story with great detail, the bulk of attention has come from the blogosphere and on-line news organs."

"Bowne, critics are saying, is the victim of New Jersey’s red tape gun laws. She wanted to exercise her right of self-defense and the state gun laws prevented her from doing so. Now she is dead." ...

"Carol Bowne had applied for a gun permit in April. She had a protective order against a man who has been described as an ex-boyfriend, but he allegedly killed her, anyway. So much for the deterrent effect of a piece of paper against someone determined to harm." ...

"The Republican governor also said Democrats in the state legislature 'are going to have to answer' for New Jersey's laws, mentioning the death last week of a New Jersey woman killed while awaiting a handgun license."

... "The NRA believes the new regulation would constitute a massive restraint on free speech regarding firearms and their accessories, thus violating the First and Second Amendments. This is because all such releases of information would require the 'authorization' of the government before they occurred. 'The cumbersome and time-consuming process of obtaining such authorizations, moreover, would make online communication about certain technical aspects of firearms and ammunition essentially impossible.'"

"Instead, a person who possessed a firearm during the commission of another felony could be sentenced to up to -- or less than -- three years in prison. That time could be served concurrently with any sentence for the underlying crime, and a felony firearm conviction would not disqualify an inmate from parole consideration." ...

"This week the Supreme Court passed up an opportunity to get the government out of the bedroom. Counterintuitively, the case involved an ordinance adopted by the famously tolerant and progressive city of San Francisco just eight years ago."

"The puzzle is solved when you learn that the ordinance deals with guns, tools for exercising a constitutional right that is decidedly unfashionable in the City by the Bay. By declining to hear the case, the Supreme Court, which in 2010 affirmed that the Second Amendment binds states and cities as well as the federal government, undermines that principle, suggesting that the right of armed self-defense is constrained by local sensibilities." ...

"The dire warnings that the U.S. Supreme Court’s recognition of an individual right to bear arms would lead to a wholesale voiding of gun-control laws seem to have been overblown."

"The most recent case in point: The justices on Monday declined to review a San Francisco gun law that was remarkably similar to one they struck down in a landmark ruling in 2008 ... the high court’s refusal to hear the case left the statute intact for San Francisco to enforce and others to copy." ...
