... "Thing is, Sheriff, your position has all the indicators of ignorance-based fear, backed up by armed authoritarianism. Just so we're clear, and in the interests of public safety, perhaps we ought to put out in the open exactly what open-carrying visitors to Lackawanna County parks can expect from the enforcers you dispatch to intercept them. Because bias and fear makes men do regrettable things."

"What have you ordered your deputies to do should they encounter an armed citizen? When you say your position is you won't allow it, does that mean you're prepared to have your agents use armed force to stop it?"

"Will you disarm the gun owner? Will you arrest him?"

"Under what authority?" ...

"Besides a police station, the safest place in America on April 19 would likely have been any of the numerous Patriot's Day rallies held around the country where thousands of people, many carrying firearms, celebrated the opening shots in America's war for independence."

"Some of the rallies had a strong tea party presence. Others were filled with gun-rights folks with no particular political affiliation."

"This was Patriot's Day -- a holiday recognized by too few and celebrated by even fewer -- and the one common theme was that the freedom fought for 235 years ago was worth winning, even at the cost of blood and lives. It was a battle fought over guns." ...

"FOR MOST of my life, I've been pretty much a 'make love, not war' type of North Jersey woman. The very thought of owning, much less firing, a gun was as far from my mind-set as voting for a Republican or rooting for the Boston Red Sox."

"So why did I enroll in a [NRA] basic pistol class?" ...

"... It was time for this liberal to become 'armed and dangerous,' too."

"By 'dangerous,' I didn't mean one of those fools you read about in the paper who shoots himself in the foot because he didn't know how to handle a gun. I have a lot of acquaintances who ... are big believers in Second Amendment rights. They suggested that I take a class given by the NRA because the instructors are the experts in firearm instruction." ...

"Obama and Nepolitano were quick to not only minimize and rename the war on terror to ‘overseas contingency operations’ (a completely meaningless name) but to redefine the real and growing terror as American citizens. We all know by now the famous Homeland security report that ‘accidentally’ made its way to the public identifying pro lifers, advocates for second amendment rights, sovereignty and returning Vets as potential domestic terrorists. Naturally, that word terrorist isn’t supposed to be used for Islamics we are at war with but easily can attach to you and I, law abiding, U.S. citizens." ...

"The general public knows the Desert Eagle® Pistol as a full-size hand cannon, firing .50 cal. Question: why would Minnesota gunmaker Magnum Research sell a Baby Desert Eagle (9mm or .40S&W) or a Micro Eagle? Somehow I don’t think that 'The Science of KABOOM' applies to a weapon chambered in .380 ACP. Answer: money. Sure, the Eagle's brand extensions sell. A cheap BMW or Mercedes sells, too. But brandicide is a slow, irreversible process (Jaguar anyone?). Anyway, thanks to the Desert Eagle and her eaglets, Magnum's growth has been vigorous. And now the people behind the scenes are cashing in their chips. Kahr Arms has just bought Magnum, as they pursue financial success through acquisition. Press release after the jump." ...

"Josh Sugarmann of the Violence Policy Center (VPC) has penned another polemic conflating facts with opinion, anecdotes with analysis. In other news, the sun came up this morning. Still, you gotta give Sugarmann credit for reaching new heights of hypocrisy and misdirection. Let's start at the end. 'When the issue is life and death, feelings should never trump facts,' Sugamann concludes. 'Even when there's an armed mob arguing otherwise.' Anyone even vaguely familiar with the VPC crusader's writings, whether at the Huffington Post or at kentucky.com, knows that Sugarmann’s plea for a rational debate on gun control is as credible as Kim Kardashian calling for new privacy laws. ..." ...

"Are armed mobs becoming socially acceptable? Watching television coverage of gun owners eager to brandish their firearms in public spaces, that appears to be the desired goal of 'open-carry' advocates."

"Exploiting loopholes in state laws that don't explicitly ban the open carrying of handguns and other firearms is an omission of default rather than design -- who would think people would actually want to live out their Wild West fantasies in real life. Open-carry advocates take delight in thumbing their noses at societal norms by brandishing their firearms." ...

Submitter's Note: Actually those aren't "loopholes". Concealed carry prohibitions were first passed because only crooks concealed their weapons. Honest people wore them openly.

"That reaction can be expected on this side of the Atlantic, where murderous shooting sprees occur with depressing regularity. They are predictably followed by gun enthusiasts arguing that the remedy is more armed citizens who are prepared to defend themselves." ...

"... governments in the United States dare not confront the obvious problem, cowed by a gun lobby that believes the Second Amendment is an absolute constitutional right like no other. Too often, when the switch flicks in a disturbed American's head, a gun is readily at hand." ...

"Okay, maybe Kagan is no Lady Gaga when it comes to fashion. But for most Americans, the way Kagan, who is Obama’s Solicitor General, outfits herself is just fine. ... What’s in her mind and her heart are far more important than what’s on her back, neck, or her ring finger."

"So far, I like what I've learned of Kagan's mind and heart from her past writings and job experiences. In a way, they mimic her style of dress – responsible, sensible, and utilitarian — especially when it comes to her perspective on gun laws." ...

I have never needed to use it, but there are undoubtedly rare occasions when an effective bear deterrent is essential." ...

That contraband was all of these riffles, specifically AK 47's, fully-automatic." [emphasis added] ...

Submitter's Note: Looks like someone let the cat out of the bag, I don't think we were supposed to know these weren't EBRs to be banned by an AWB. Furthermore, if these weapons were "straw purchased" or "gun show loophole" purchased then the Feds need only check the "100% accurate" NFTR to find the source.

"Such a thought can be terrifying. In a 'hot burglary' the FBI statistics show that the home-owner is severely injured or killed 30% of the time. Thanks to the passing of SB184, our 'Castle Doctrine' law puts the victim on good legal ground, as long as he knows and follows the law.

"Here’s the deal. In 2006, Montgomery County Maryland Detective Aaron Bailey set up a training company called Applied Sciences for Public Safety. He offered two-hour classes in firearms instruction. The schmooze cost attendees $1,600; a figure not-so-coincidentally just below the $1,630 available to county employees for tuition reimbursement. Note: taxpayers paid the entire fee. The attendee? Nothing. In three years, 330 county employees availed themselves of Bailey’s boondoggle, including 275 police officers. For one simple reason: Bailey offered them a wide range of new guns at ridiculously low prices. For example, attendees could pick-up a $600 Glock for $99. Sniper rifle? Tactical flashlights?

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins ... Society is in every state a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. — THOMAS PAINE
