"Truckers with concealed carry permits may be able to protect themselves in more than just their home state if an amendment on the Senate floor moves forward on Wednesday, July 22."

"Sen. John Thune, R-SD, offered an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act – S1390 – on Monday, July 20. The amendment is set for debate and a vote at noon EDT on Wednesday."

"Thune's amendment would allow individuals who have concealed carry permits to carry a firearm in other states that also grant concealed carry permits." ...
 

Gun Control: Gateway to Tyranny

"New research into Adolf Hitler's use of firearms registration lists to confiscate guns and the execution of their owners teaches a forceful lesson -- one that reveals why the American people and Congress have rejected registering honest firearm owners."

"It would be instructive at this time to recall why the American citizenry and Congress have historically opposed the registration of firearms. The reason is plain. Registration makes it easy for a tyrannical government to confiscate firearms and to make prey of its subjects. Denying this historical fact is no more justified than denying that the Holocaust occurred or that the Nazis murdered millions of unarmed people." ...

"Gun prohibitionists nationwide are fuming over a proposed amendment by South Dakota Sen. John Thune ... that would require all states to recognize concealed carry licenses and permits from every other state, same as the states now recognize driver's licenses from another state."

"The proposal has anti-gunners fuming, from Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels, acting as president of the US Conference of Mayors, to gun-hating Senators Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Charles Schumer (D-NY). ..."

"How ironic that Nickels is campaigning against the right of self-defense when in his own city, police are looking for the man who brutally attacked two women in their South Park neighborhood home ..." ...
 

AHSA: Actually Harming the Second Amendment?

... "This isn't going to be a diary dissecting the Second Amendment and nor will it be a diary that gives reasons for the right to keep and bear arms (RKBA). Speaking as someone who started handling firearms before I hit double digit years, I'd like to say I have a respectful and safe relationship with firearms. I was a hunter (though not anymore), I am a firearm safety instructor ...and I shoot regularly."

"So when I saw a pro-firearms group that was based on the Democratic side of the fence, I started jumping for joy. Finally, a group that supports the other issues alongside gun rights that I can get behind."

"Oh happy day!"

"And then I started looking into the group. My enthusiasm waned." ...

... "As states such as Maryland, New York, and New Jersey panic over the idea of losing the ability to provide disarmed herds of victims for their criminals, the VPC has sprung to the rescue like a well paid mob lawyer and has released the results of a poorly concocted 'study' claiming to illustrate the evils of concealed carry permits."

"I use the word study loosely in order to not offend the sensibilities of any true statistician who might be reading this article. Their methodology appears to have been to assign a slightly inebriated intern to do a Google news search for 'permit holder' and 'charged with." ...

"Let’s examine the many, many flaws that render their data virtually meaningless and reduces their 'study' to nothing more than the ideological propaganda that is the normal grist of the VPC mill." ...

Shooting Sports Foundation has announced a new initiative with the ambitious goal of growing shooting sports at the collegiate level. Not just growing the sports, but growing them twenty percent over the next five years."

"The NSSF's Collegiate Shooting Sports Initiative (CSSI) will 'provide both financial and non-financial assistance in creating new college shooting teams and clubs and strengthening existing programs.' The NSSF's Zach Snow will be heading up the initiative. 'Youth shooting programs are very popular nationwide with students grades 12 and under,' he says, 'as these students go off to college, many would jump at the opportunity to get involved or continue their participation in the shooting sports.'" ...

"The Senate Judiciary Committee put off its vote Tuesday on Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor for one week amid objections from the panel's conservative Republicans, even as the judge's support among GOP moderates continued to grow." ...

"Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., announced he will vote against Sotomayor because she refused to say during her confirmation hearings that the Second Amendment right to bear arms binds states as well as the federal government — an issue on which the Supreme Court has yet to rule."

"Wicker said Sotomayor 'shows an alarming hostility toward law-abiding gun owners across the country,' and accused her of having an 'aversion to impartiality.'"

"Well, we also own property in Montana and are finally relocating back. ... We can't wait to move back."

"However, this letter is not about moving back. I have been watching the Senate hearings on the nomination of Judge Sotomayor for the Supreme Court. I believe she is wrong on the Second Amendment. She has stated that the Second Amendment only applies to the federal government and not states and cities, etc. She also stated this morning that 'it depends' if a citizen has the basic right of self-defense." ...

"Perhaps unintentionally, the written followup questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor make a strong case that consideration of foreign law in the debate over the Second Amendment would doom Republican efforts to read a 'fundamental right' to gun ownership into the Constitution." ...

"Sessions went on to ask Sotomayor if she would consider foreign law as a Supreme Court justice deciding whether the Second Amendment guarantees the right to gun ownership in the United States, suggesting, of course, that such consideration would be heresy. ('Isn't foreign law then simply a vehicle by which judges indulge their own policy preferences?' Session asked.)" ...

"It's official. Freedom lovers and gun enthusiasts, you have to be both in this case, can be proud of a new Tennessee law that allows people to carry loaded, concealed guns into bars and restaurants."

"You have to be both to be proud because most gun enthusiasts I meet or listen to are against many other freedoms ... They think as deeply about freedom, and what that means, as young men sporting rebel flags think about history."

"The world presented by people in support of this law is a simple one. People who own registered guns and have a permit are according to their arguments, good people who will never, as the law requires, slip up and have a drink ..." ...

"The gunnies on here will remember that the prosecutor made a huge deal of Fish using a 10mm Kimber pistol and Federal hollow point ammunition to protect himself, convincing at least some on the jury that the large caliber gun and the somehow extra-deadly bullets were indications of malice. ... Lesson there: be able to articulate why you, like most cops, choose a powerful handgun and effective ammunition to defend yourselves and your loved ones." ...

"A measure that would let gun owners carry weapons across state lines could threaten the filibuster-proof edge Democrats have in the U.S. Senate, observers note." ...

"Thune offered the amendment Monday to the defense authorization bill. The language would allow people to carry concealed firearms across state lines as long as they 'have a valid permit or if, under their state of residence ... are entitled to do so.'" ...

"'Since criminals are unable to tell who is and who is not carrying a firearm just by looking at a potential victim, they are less likely to commit crimes ...' [Thune] said.

"Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., who pledged to filibuster the amendment, said it scuttled states' rights." ...

"Mayor Bloomberg did not mince words today in bashing the US Senate for being poised to vote on an amendment that would make it easier to take concealed weapons across state lines[sic]."

"The measure, known as the 'Thune Amendment' because it was proposed by South Dakota Republican John Thune, has been attached to a Defense Authorization bill that would provide funding for troops overseas and thus be difficult for senators to vote down."

"In a conference call this afternoon with fellow members of his Mayors Against Illegal Guns group, Bloomberg called the amendment 'anti-police' and 'pro-gun trafficker'." ...

"The amendment offered up for consideration by South Dakota Republican John Thune to create National reciprocity among states that issue concealed carry licenses is generating a lot of debate from both sides of the issue."

"The anti-gun side is mounting the usual attacks, saying this would lead to an increase in crime. As if concealed carry licensees in Pennsylvania have been waiting for just this opportunity to cross the border into Ohio and go on a crime spree." ...

"On the other side of the aisle, some pro-gun pundits are wary of enacting national controls on the issue of concealed carry. ... Another fear is that a national license would be created and mandated ... and that state permits would be ruled invalid." ...

... "So after going through all this, why would I be willing to cede that The Times or VPC may not be completely wrong in opposing the Thune amendment, even if their 'reasoning' is? Particularly since everybody in the gun rights advocacy movement appears to be on board with it?"

"Well, not everybody. For instance, Alan Korwin, doesn't think concealed carry permit reciprocity is such a hot idea." ...

"My only caution is to not make the mistake of thinking benefits do not also include costs. And to consider that sometimes, the price that will ultimately be required of us--or our posterity--is not always clearly understood up front." ...

"The politics of the gun debate in the Senate took a new twist Tuesday when Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) rescinded an offer to Republican Sen. John Thune to hold a hearing on a proposal that would make it easier to take guns across state lines[sic]." ...

"Earlier this year, Thune agreed to hold off on offering his gun amendment to the D.C. voting rights act in exchange for a commitment that a subcommittee on Judiciary would hold a hearing on the issue this summer."

"But the hearing has yet to happen, and in the meantime, Thune's proposal is set for a vote in the Senate." ...

"If you're not aware of an important gun-rights vote in the Senate that could take place as early as today, you can hardly be blamed. The pressure for and against Senator John Thune's amendment to the Defense Authorization bill working its way through the Senate has built steadily, but quietly. In simplest terms, the amendment states that any state which allows its citizens to carry concealed weapons, whether it requires a permit or not, must honor the carry permits issued by any other states. This means that New York, for example, would have to honor Indiana or Florida carry permits, although anyone using a permit from another state would have to follow the same laws as a person with a New York permit." ...

"Yet Reid — whose low approval ratings in Nevada make him a tempting GOP target in next year's midterms — put many of his members in a sticky situation when he OK'd a floor vote on a controversial GOP amendment that could significantly alter the nation's gun control laws."

"Reid says the bill deserves a hearing and reflects his commitment to supporting gun rights in a state that sanctifies the Second Amendment. Other Democrats say he approved the vote out of personal political necessity ..." ...

That's because even squishy liberals like Mike Jameson aren't convinced the city should opt out of the state's new law allowing licensed citizen gunmen to carry loaded weapons into parks and playgrounds."

"It was a WTF? moment for Pith when Jameson informed his favorite blogger that he was on the fence about banning guns in Metro parks. He confessed he's wringing his hands over whether such a move would invite a lawsuit from the gun lobby and whether the Second Amendment actually gives Americans the right to stroll about with loaded weapons wherever they please." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition, that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story, who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. If men are to wait for liberty till they become wise and good in slavery, they may indeed wait forever. — LORD THOMAS MACAULAY
