"A complaint filed Tuesday in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia seeks an order to compel the [ATF] to comply with a [FOIA] request filed in March and ignored in violation of federal law. The FOIA sought copies of policies and rulings relied on in enforcement and determination actions . . ."

"The complaint was filed by attorney David T. Hardy of Tucson on behalf of plaintiffs including Federal Firearms Licensee Len Savage, the not-for-profit FFL Defense Research Center, and this writer. It charges that the ATF did not respond to a joint [FOIA] records request filed in March, with a required response period of 20 business days. And that administrative remedies for the plaintiffs have been exhausted." ...

"Revising earlier reports that two attackers were involved, authorities are now saying only one man was responsible for killing dozens of tourists and wounding dozens more at a Tunisian beach resort. Reportedly armed with a Kalashnikov initially concealed with an umbrella, it took an after-the-fact armed security team response to stop the killer from adding to his unarmed victim count . . ." ...

"... Per GunPolicy.org, as far as world rankings go, 'In a comparison of the rate of private gun ownership in 178 countries, Tunisia ranked at No. 178.'"

"Gun and/or gun owner registration is bad for a free society. In this article I will discuss briefly a bit of the ancient history of weapons prohibition. I will look at the 20th century's horrors of gun registration, confiscation, and subsequent genocides."

"I am not predicting that registration in the United States will lead to genocide. But, registration and confiscation have already occurred in California and New York. Additionally, remember our government ..." ...

... "[Pope Francis'] criticism of those who invest in weapons manufacture is especially puzzling. Anyone, after all, who purchases a weapon could fairly be said to have invested in the manufacture of them. And as it turns out, the Pontifical Swiss Guard, who defend the Vatican and its most famous resident, are lavishly equipped with some pretty hefty investments in Sig-Sauer, Heckler & Koch, Steyr Mannlicher, and Glock semi-automatic handguns, personal defense weapons, assault rifles, and submachine guns ..."

"So, will the Vatican be melting all those guns and blades down, to be remanufactured into farming implements, or something similarly non-martial? If not, who is the real hypocrite here, Your Holiness?"

. While there’s no question which party works "Since 1855, the U.S. political scene has been divided between Democrats and Republicansharder to degrade and destroy Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, I reckon the two-party political divide is a distinction without a difference. Both sides are part of the same political establishment. Maintaining the status quo – the system itself – is job one. Ideology is a merely a means to that end. A more fundamental fracture in the body politic lies beneath the surface . . ."

"An essay appearing in today’s edition of The Week, authored by Jeb Golinkin, so clearly explains the backbone of the Second Amendment movement in this country that anyone but a closed-minded gun prohibitionist should understand why millions of citizens so zealously defend their right to keep and bear arms."

"It’s not that Golinkin comes across as a hardcore right to keep and bear arms absolutist (he doesn't); he alludes in the third paragraph to another article, written earlier this week by David Frum, that no hardcore gun rights activist is going to like at all. But Golinkin’s piece does sum up why millions of Americans passionately resist and revile any erosion of their fundamental civil right." ...

"I know Australian comic Jim Jefferies’s anti-gun gasser has been highlighted before on TTAG, but this video just will not go away. I keep seeing it on Facebook, and I have even had it emailed to be by family and friends with an implied, 'See? You’re wrong!' I will admit that this is best summary of the gun control lobby’s arguments that I have ever heard. Jefferies’s delivery is flawless, his timing is perfect, and some of the material is good for some positive introspection. But in light of the bit’s growing prominence, I believe that it deserves a thorough fisking . . ." ...

"Modern pistols and revolvers are pretty resilient. You can push upwards of tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition through them before mechanical parts start to degrade. With proper maintenance, it’s possible for a revolver or pistol to last a lifetime. But what if you’re sick of that pistol? After the barrel is worn down, the grips smooth, the striker pin bowed, you just want to be rid of it and move on to another firearm? There are a couple legal processes you can do to legally dispose of a firearm . . ." ...

"[Name redacted] is accused of murdering nine worshippers[sic] at the historic Emanuel AME church in Charleston, S.C. President Obama called the shootings 'senseless murders' and suggested more gun control is needed in the wake of the tragedy."

"But in this violent nation of ours, there seems to be a disconnect between our Second Amendment 'right to keep and bear arms' and the number of mass killings in this country. Americans with guns kill thousands of fellow Americans each year. And remember, the right to bear arms is not unlimited and does not prohibit all regulation of either firearms or similar devices." ...

"Advocates of a saner approach to guns need a new strategy."

"We cannot go on like this, wringing our hands in frustration after every tragedy involving firearms. We said 'Enough' after Sandy Hook. We thought the moment for action had come. Yet nothing happened. We are saying 'Enough' after Charleston. But this time, we don't even expect anything to happen."

"What's needed is a long-term national effort to change popular attitudes toward handgun ownership. And we need to insist on protecting the rights of Americans who do not want to be anywhere near guns." ...

While it promised me an 'NRA rugged duffel bag' for joining, its main pitch was to scare me and the thousands of other persons receiving it into signing a 'National Petition to Protect Our Rights to Keep and Bear Arms' and joining the NRA. Signing the petition was important the letter explained because 'the Obama-Biden-Bloomberg gun ban machine and their anti-gun media allies are waging all-out war on our gun rights!'" ...

... "I further believe that this crime was facilitated by the lack of gun control that arises from some misguided beliefs about the Second Amendment. While people have the right to possess a firearm I do not think it is means the right to carry anywhere, anytime, with no training, license or background checks. I do not believe that the Second Amendment gives us the right to become a nation of vigilantes in response to violence." ...

... "Barack Obama and his party have made no secret of their desire to enact strict gun control legislation in America. Their efforts have been rebuffed so far by the American people and the Republican legislature. But that hasn’t stopped them from plotting any number of ways to try to restrict gun ownership through regulatory, procedural, or executive actions."

"Those efforts are bound to continue, especially now that the United States Supreme Court appears to be open to reaching decisions based on political considerations and public pressure, as opposed to basing their decisions solely on the U.S. Constitution." ...

"I don’t know about you, but I need some good news this week. And there is a happy crumb to report: the House Appropriations Committee has rejected an amendment that would allow the CDC to 'study the underlying causes of gun violence' (not that guns are violent in and of themselves, but you know the drill)."

"In doing so, House Republicans stopped Democrats from funding Obama-directed CDC research designed as subterfuge for laying the foundation of an attack on our Second Amendment rights. Instead of turning gun control into a national health issue, Obama and his bureaucrat cronies are back to having to fight the Second Amendment on emotional pleas and using victims as political pawns." ...

"Republican presidential nominee Jeb Bush this weekend lauded his record against government-mandated gun control -- and disputed President Barack Obama's suggestions that easy access to guns plays a direct role in shooting tragedies like the one in South Carolina earlier this month."

"Stumping in the early caucus state of Nevada, near Las Vegas, Bush on Saturday addressed the hot button issue -- which often spurs debate prior to elections and after mass shootings."

"The former Florida governor, long a proponent of Second Amendment rights that protect citizens' rights to carry firearms, said a state or federally-mandated clampdown on guns are not the answer to acts of violence." ...

"The 5-4 Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v.

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said in a press release that the same principle should apply to nationwide state recognition of concealed carry licenses and permits from all other states. And Bob Owens at Bearing Arms.com seems to concur." ...

"Police in recent months learned that a man had coerced the girl and her mother to blame Carter for the 1991 assault because of an unpaid debt."

"'Grand Rapids Police Department — they are to blame, not me, not the victims,' Carter said. '... It was your job to figure out did I do it or not, but you didn’t do your job.'" ...

"The Oklahoma Second Amendment Association created a bit of a brouhaha recently when it sued the city of Norman over a gun ban at Norman's annual music festival. Not surprisingly, the judge issued a restraining order against the city. What was surprising were reactions on social media to the lawsuit and the realization that people might be carrying guns at the festival. A segment of our population seems to be unaware that guns are now commonplace in Oklahoma." ...

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of. — Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789.
