In Israel, guns are ubiquitous; gun crimes aren't

... "More than a decade has passed, but I still recall that laconic refusal when I read about Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook Elementary and now Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Guns are virtually everywhere in Israel, certainly much more so than in the U.S. Yet as Barack Obama noted in a recent tweet, Americans kill one another (per capita) 33 times as often as do Israelis. When we lived in the U.S., had I walked into any gun shop, I would undoubtedly have been able to buy a gun legally. In Israel, though, even at the height of the Second Intifada, I was told that I couldn’t carry a weapon." ...

Most of their products began life as a specific request from active duty units in the Special Operations community; many of their products still have that focus.

"During a recent hunting expedition, my friend Dave had a really neat chest harness holster for his GLOCK brand GLOCK. I became intrigued and started looking around. What I didn’t care for with Dave’s rig was the leather strap retention. I used to compete while wearing my duty gear and always preferred the thumb snap or thumb break holster. ... I also didn’t like . . ."

"that it was leather. I live and spend a great deal of time outside in western Oregon, and in the outdoors it rains here. A lot. ... I needed something more weather tolerant. What I was looking for was a way to carry a primary or secondary handgun in a holster that wouldn’t interfere with a backpacker’s/hunter’s existing setup." ...

"By now you’ve probably heard that no one hunts (or needs to bring down a deer/coyote/hog) with a so-called “assault weapon.” And there’s no tradition of doing so in these United States. We know this because the White House press secretary told us so. For some reason, though, the People of the Gun begged to differ with Josh Earnest’s informed opinion and have sent us pics – actual photographic evidence! – of themselves and some of their pals who have, in fact, put meat on the table using Stoner (or Kalashnikov) inspired long guns. We know…you’re probably as shocked as we are . . ." ...
 

Gun-rights lobby now OK with Kasich despite 1994 weapons-ban vote

"For a long time, it seemed as if the [NRA] would never forgive John Kasich."

"In the wake of the shooting deaths of eight people in 1993 in San Francisco by a man with an automatic pistol, Kasich joined 215 other House members in 1994 to ban the production and sale of 19 semi-automatic assault weapons."

"The NRA’s response was quick: It awarded Kasich, then a Republican congressman from Westerville, a grade of F. When Kasich ran for governor in 2010, the NRA was still smoldering. It endorsed Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland, who as a House member in 1994 had voted against the same weapons ban."

"Yet as Kasich prepares a run for the 2016 presidential nomination, he has worked his way back into good standing with the NRA" ...
 

Conservative Media Argue Same-Sex Marriage Ruling Creates Constitutional Right To Carry A Gun In Public

"Conservative media used the Supreme Court decision affirming that marriage is a fundamental right of all Americans to argue that the Constitution also requires states to recognize concealed carry permits issued by other states. But the Supreme Court has never held that carrying a gun in public is a fundamental right." ...

"Conservative media and the [NRA] quickly seized on the decision to draw a parallel with concealed carry reciprocity, a top federal legislative priority of the NRA. Reciprocity legislation, also known as federally mandated concealed carry, would force states to recognize permits to carry concealed guns issued by other states, regardless of what the issuing state's standards are for issuing permits." ...

'Paula, who is black, said he encountered the two men — who are white — at a party earlier in the evening. He said the two had made racial remarks, and he had asked them to stop. The men later confronted Paula on Mount Vernon Road near the Fairfield airport.' When the two men got out of their vehicle . . ."

Clintons’ disdain for Second Amendment

"Arkansas has pretty permissive gun laws. It does not require handgun owners to obtain licenses, does not ban so-called assault weapons, issues concealed-carry permits to anyone who meets a short list of objective criteria, accepts carry permits issued by other states and, since 2013, arguably allows people to openly carry handguns without a permit."

"Although Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas from 1983 to 1992, he and his wife ... prefer a decidedly more restrictive approach. On Sunday, the former president highlighted the couple’s disdain for the right to armed self-defense by declaring that 'you can’t have a bunch of people walking around with guns.' The Second Amendment says otherwise." ...

"Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is one of the more outspoken advocates of gun control in Congress today. Every single time there’s a firearms related incident that makes the national news he takes the opportunity to wave the bloody shirt and demand that we 'do something about gun violence.' For the children. More often than not the proposals he makes have nothing whatsoever to do with the widely publicized incident he’s using to promote his agenda, and quite often they would have exactly zero impact on reducing the kind of crime he’s trying to target. This time is no different." ...

"News last week that 44,485 assault-style weapons have been registered in a new State Police database brought a variety of responses."

"Opponents of the 2013 Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act said the number was proof of a widespread boycott of the law, given initial estimates that hundreds of thousands of such weapons, maybe even a million, are owned in the state."

"'The people of New York state who have been calling for a repeal (of the SAFE Act) have decided to repeal it on their own by not complying,' remarked Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association." ...

"Gov. Bobby Jindal has signed a bill (SB 212) that will allow bowhunters to carry any firearm of their choosing with them during bowhunting season."

"The issue of carrying any firearm during bowhunting season was somewhat controversial in the legislature -- even among avid sportsmen -- because of the potential for bowhunters to use the guns as hunting weapons to take deer when other hunters aren't allowed to use guns. But advocates for the bill insisted that the bill was intended to allow bowhunters to protect themselves against aggressive animals that aren't being hunted during bowhunting seasons." ...

"On June 25th, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled that a law’s language doesn’t matter. What matters: what the Justices want the law to say. We have seen this break-down in the rule of law before. The Warren Court was famous for it. During the so-called Roosevelt revolution of the 1930’s, the Supreme Court went down the same path. There was a brief period in the early 2000s when the Court applied the Constitution to questions of constitutionality. The left labeled this a 'radically conservative court' but it was merely a tendency to follow law and truth, rather than rubber-stamping 'progressive' ideology . . ." ...

"A federal appeals court ruled Monday that the District can continue enforcing its new rules for gun permits, pending a final ruling on whether the restrictions are constitutional — indicating that the judges see some merit in the city’s position that the law should stand."

"In overturning an injunction last month by U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr., the three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued no opinion explaining its reasoning. But the appeals court set aside Scullin’s finding that a challenge by gun rights activists to a key provision of the D.C. law was likely to prevail." ...

"The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Monday issued a stay pending appeal that will again allow the city to enforce a key provision of its restrictive concealed carry laws — the requirement that gun owners demonstrate a 'good reason' to obtain a permit."

"A federal judge previously struck down the 'good reason' requirement, saying the licensing scheme deprives citizens of their Second Amendment rights. But Monday’s ruling means the city will be allowed to continue the practice while the case is argued in appellate court." ...

"In yet another decision that thumbs it’s nose at the Supreme Court’s landmark D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago rulings, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals held today that the Second Amendment does not protect gun rights outside of one’s home."

"The case, Bonidy v. United States Postal Service, challenged 39 C.F.R. § 232.1(l), which prohibits the storage and carriage of firearms on USPS property. The district court decision found that the law was unconstitutional as applied to its prohibition on guns in parking lots, but not the ban on carry inside government buildings." ...
