The deadly fallacy of believing "The boogeyman will go away."

Hitler willed, wanted, craved war and the destruction wrought by war. He did not want the war he got. Its origins lay through his own miscalculations and misperceptions, as much as through those of his eventual opponents, not least in their belief that he was bluffing, that he would recoil, that in Paul Claudel's words, "Croque-mitaine se degonflera" (the boogeyman will go away). . . The only people who could have stopped him permanently were those least conditioned to do so, his Generals, and their soldiers, if they had been ready to obey, by coup d'etat, or an assassin capable of penetrating into the Reichs Chancellery from which, in the last days of peace, Hitler never emerged. History knows this did not happen.

"I wasn't going to say anything about Joshua Horwitz and Casey Anderson's new book Guns, Democracy and the Insurrectionist Idea. First, because I've seen the ideas they're promoting and I think they're...mistaken, and secondly because I see no reason to publicize efforts by people who are working to subvert my rights. Besides, I've engaged with Horwitz before, and quite honestly, I found him to be...disagreeable."

New Jersey to implement rationing of rights

"After literally years of effort, the powerful anti-gun forces in New Jersey politics have finally succeeded in passing a 'one handgun per month' bill, which now heads to Governor Corzine's desk for his inevitable signature." ...

"Unless I'm missing a state or two somewhere, that makes New Jersey the fourth to pass this kind of law ... The others that still have such a law are California ... Maryland ... and Virginia. The fact that Virginia is one of only three (soon to be four) states with such a law is probably a surprise to some. Virginia, after all, is blamed for having 'lax gun laws' that contribute toward it being part of the so-called 'Iron Pipeline' of guns that end up illegally in places like New York City." ...

"One year ago today, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in District of Columbia et al. v. Heller. The decision affirmed the Second Amendment as protecting an individual right to keep and bear arms and invalidated the District of Columbia's draconian gun control regime."

"The case generated a storm of media attention. The Cato Institute filed an amicus brief, one of nearly four dozen in the case."

"The Cato Institute held a forum for Brian Doherty's book chronicling this victory for liberty, Gun Control on Trial: Inside the Supreme Court Battle Over the Second Amendment. The Heller case also figured prominently in Cato multimedia from Robert A. Levy and Clark Neily." ...

"Don't let the title fool you. Lethal Logic sounds like an anti-gun polemic ... It is, in part, but the book offers much more. Read from a business perspective, it dissects the marketing genius of an industry that moves merchandise despite a saturated market and broad support for tougher curbs on the sale of its products. Anyone interested in manufacturing, retailing, or the interaction of culture, psychology, and commerce can learn valuable lessons here."

"While most companies struggle through the recession, firearm makers and dealers are on a roll. Lethal Logic: Exploding the Myths that Paralyze American Gun Policy explains why: The gun industry figured out decades ago how to capitalize on seeming adversity." ...

"Beyond farce in statehouse politics — think New York, Illinois and South Carolina — there can be danger. Think Tennessee, where the Legislature just overrode the governor’s veto and rescinded a law barring patrons from carrying handguns in bars and restaurants."

"Once again, politicians caved to the gun lobby’s 'right to carry' agenda which insists that there is no place — campuses, workplaces, churches — that should be off limits to guns."

"We fear that Gov. Phil Bredesen, a gun owner and hunter, was right when he warned his state: 'It's an invitation to a disaster.'"

New Jersey Senate Passes Critical Public Safety 'One Handgun A Month' Bill

"The NJ Senate passed Senate bill S-1774, colloquially known as the One Handgun A Month bill, early this morning."

"Tom Jardim, Board Chair of Ceasefire NJ ... said: 'At 12:15 this morning the Senate took an important step toward making the illegal trafficking of handguns in our state less likely. There can be no doubt that S-1774 is life-saving legislation, intended to reduce the movement of handguns from legal sale at New Jersey gun shops to illegal street sale. These illegal handguns are the ones that fuel gun crime and violence. It is illegal guns that are used to threaten, wound, maim and kill.'" ...
-------

KABA Note: To purchase a handgun in NJ you need to fill out an application and get fingerprinted. You must have a separate permit for each pistol you are going to purchase, and permits are only good for 90 days. Police have up to 30 days to process your application (although many take longer). So tell us one more time just what this law is going to accomplish besides making felons out of innocent dealers and purchasers if they make a mistake?

IL: Despite 36 Public School Students Killed By Gun Violence, and Days After 9-Year-Old Girl Gunned Down Outside Her Home, the Illinois Gun Lobby Holds Rally To End Chicago's Handgun Ban

Thirty-six Chicago Public School students were also killed during the '09 school year in a continuing rash of gun violence."

"Most troubling is the language, tone and materials that pro-gun groups are using to promote their rally in downtown Chicago. Ralph Connor, an African-American conservative who will speak at the rally, continues to preach a divisive message that 'gun control is racist' and is eagerly promoting a film ... called 'No Guns for Negroes.'" ...

The National Rifle Association is reporting that following a review of their recognition policy, Nevada will no longer recognize concealed handgun licenses from Utah or Florida, but are adding Ohio and West Virginia as recognized states. These changes go into effect July 1.

For Ohio, this means that our residents who have obtained a concealed handgun license will be able to carry their handgun while traveling to Nevada, subject to all laws of that state. Nevada residents will not be permitted to carry in Ohio as no reciprocity agreement has been signed at this time.

You've got to wonder what Governor Corzine's political handlers are thinking these days.

Amidst an epic financial crisis, they've apparently decided that portraying the Governor as a gun banner is a distraction needed to win re-election. But they haven't done their homework and have picked a discredited issue fabricated by the gun ban lobby that's going to badly misfire and embarrass the Governor, not only for what it focuses on, but also for what it ignores.

Well, the ever-loathesome web-Nazi and FBI paid snitch Hal Turner is in the news again. He is proving to be a most useful tool of the FBI, IF, and its a big if, this present case doesn't blow up in their faces. Not since the case of Mafia killer and FBI snitch Whitey Bolger have we had a better chance to find out the inner workings of the Kingdom of FBI Snitchdom. (What? You think it's a coincidence that Whitey's still on the lam?)

Outed as a paid FBI snitch when his emails with an FBI special agent were hacked and posted, Turner earlier this month was arrested by the FBI for threatening judges. The case has the potential to strike at the heart of the First Amendment on-line as Jacob Sullum reports here at Reason Magazine.

A dozen army soldiers and police officers have been arrested for allegedly harboring organized crime, particularly drug trafficking.

President Felipe Calderon launched a military crackdown on Mexico’s powerful cartels two and a half years ago. Since the crackdown more than 10,000 people have died in suspected drug violence.

He shoots regularly at the local firing range, and his sermon two weeks ago was on 'God, Guns, Gospel and Geometry.'

"The bring-your-gun-to-church day, which will include a $1 raffle of a handgun, firearms safety lessons and a picnic, is another sign that the gun culture in the United States is thriving despite, or perhaps because of, President Obama’s election in November." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.— Benjamin Franklin Historical Review of Pennsylvania. [Note: This sentence was often quoted in the Revolutionary period. It occurs even so early as November, 1755, in an answer by the Assembly of Pennsylvania to the Governor, and forms the motto of Franklin's "Historical Review," 1759, appearing also in the body of the work. — Frothingham: Rise of the Republic of the United States, p. 413. ]
