... "As stated before, the government can’t have it both ways. By their own admission and actions, they consider a requirement to produce official photo identification as discriminatory, with a significant statistical impact on the enfranchisement of minority rights. Heller and McDonald leave no doubt that the Second Amendment articulates an individual right recognized by the federal government and applicable to the states and it is the duty of the Department of Justice to ensure that denials of rights are prosecuted." ...

"ThinkProgress.org has their knickers in a twist over a couple of members of the House (Ben Quayle (R-AZ) and Denny Rehberg (R-MT)) who have introduced a bill (H.R. 5846) intended to prevent the U.N.’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) from infringing on our Second Amendment rights. 'For at least the last two years, far right groups have opposed an imaginary treaty which, in the words of the John Birch Society, would 'cede control of private Americans' small arms ownership and use to the United Nations.' This treaty does not exist. ...' All that is true in a false sort of way . . ." ...

And I fully agrees with L. Neil Smith when he says the freedom to own and carry the weapon of your choice is a natural, fundamental, and inalienable human, individual, civil, and Constitutional right — subject neither to the democratic process nor to arguments grounded in social utility.[1] This is why it really offends my izzat to see conservatives rejoicing in court rulings that deny people their right to keep and bear arms, and mocking the antis for not joining in the celebration . . ." ...

"And all too true to the stereotypical image of a sleazy lawyer, he has a marvelous ability to make plausible sounding statements which bear only a nodding acquaintance with the truth. Case in point is the opening paragraph of his piece: Why indifference to gun violence is a national crime." ...

He has hunted his entire life, and is an extremely good shot with both rifle and pistol, but I think he is too cocky when he says 'all you need to do is shoot someone in the head and the party’s over'. How can I convince him that he may not be able to hit what he’s aiming at in a high-stress situation, and that he needs to look into a more versatile caliber?."

"County prosecutors’ criminal case against the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club’s executive officer inched closer to going before a jury ... and then was delayed until October."

"At a Monday hearing before Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Anna Laurie, prosecutors were successful in curbing Marcus Carter from being able to mention the county’s lawsuit with the gun club, and from making certain arguments using the Second Amendment and other rhetoric that might steer a jury away from following Washington law."

"Carter, for his part, pushed back against the case itself, and while his attempts to dismiss it were thrown out, Laurie delayed the trial so he could file several more motions aimed at doing so." ...
