"The Second Amendment Foundation. a group far less known than the National Rifle Association and with a fraction of the NRA’s resources, is a major player in defining the right to bear arms, through litigation."

"Lawyers.com videojournalist Greg Presto interviewed Alan Gottlieb, who founded the Second Amendment Foundation in 1974."

"Alan says his group has expanded gun rights for Americans and have had more court victories, outnumbering all the cases filed by all the other gun rights groups combined." ...

"'If we wake up enough Americans, especially in the military, it is possible to have an American counterpart to what happened in East Germany in 1989 when the East German military refused to crack down on the peaceful protesters, and without the support of the Army, the Communist Party and the Stasi secret police were done,' Rhodes recalled." ...

"Last week, St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner noted that U.S. Representative Nita Lowey (D-NY) had become the latest in a long, sordid line of authority worshipers to advocate empowering the Attorney General to unilaterally designate anyone he chooses as a 'suspected terrorist,' and block his ability to legally buy firearms. This prohibition would not be contingent on any conviction, indictment, or even arrest or formal charges. This comes, remember, during the reign of an administration that tends to throw around accusations of 'terrorism' quite casually, and is supported by some who are even more casual about it." ...

"The venerable Lee-Enfield rifle served the Crown well through the final death throes of colonialism and the two world wars. But with the invention of semi-automatics and the inclusion of the UK in NATO, the Enfield rifle was no more. Now, a new company here in the colonies – Clayton, Georgia, to be specific – is looking to capitalize on the Enfield name and get in on the gold rush that is AR-15 rifle production . . ." ...

And now that I’m in the position of purchasing ammo, I’m finding things to be rather confusing when sorting out all there is to be had.

"Between the 50 mayors who have checked out of Hotel Bloomberg, some of whom were arrested, one for demanding gay sex at gunpoint, the number of people in the control freak mayor’s boutique anti-gun group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, run with pilfered city resources, is dropping."

"Not helping matters was Bloomberg’s declaration of war on Southern Democrats and even gun-control Republicans who didn’t hew to his exacting standards. And so Napoleon IV is watching his little empire of attack ads coming apart." ...

... "This is yet another moment when America should take stock of where the power structures are leading us, how they play on our fears — fan our fears — to feed their fortunes."

"On no subject is this more clear than on the subject of guns."

"While it is proper and necessary to analyze the case in which George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin for what it says about profiling and police practices, it is possibly more important to analyze what it says about our increasingly vigilante-oriented gun culture."

"The industry and its lobby have successfully pushed two fallacies: that the Second Amendment is under siege and so are law-abiding citizens." ...

"Amid all the furious debate generated by gun tragedies like the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida, citizens in too many states have been quietly, legally arming themselves at alarming rates that offer scant optimism for reining in the nation’s runaway gun culture." ...

"If the situation comes down to 'run, hide or fight,' the guide suggests, 'fire extinguishers or chairs' may have to be wielded against a gunman. The booklet is a pitiful reminder of how little political leaders have done to protect citizens from the nation’s raging gun culture."

Submitter's comment: Since when is it the responsibility of "political leaders" "to protect citizens" from anything except foreign invasion?

... "In retrospect, one is compelled to wonder about the stability of somebody who aggressively approaches a visibly armed man and tries to start an argument. Well aware of the First Amendment as he is of the Second, Coffman apparently let the guy vent."

"Coffman passed a background check to get his CPL. He passed a background check when he bought his handgun. Maybe it’s the other guy we ought to worry about."

"Which explains why the Buckeye Firearms Association site is now down as they are weathering a particularly vicious attack:" ...

"We don't yet know where this attack came from, but we find it hard to believe that it is a coincidence that it's happening at the very moment a story went national about raising funds to enable George Zimmerman to purchase a new firearm after Eric Holder and the DOJ decided to prevent him from getting his personal property back."

"We've received threats, hate male, and angry late night phone calls. We're sending you this message to let you know what's going on just in case they take out more of our resources and we are unable to communicate with you." ...

"Should recall elections be reserved only for politicians who break the law? Columnist Rick Moran thinks so ..." ...

"Mr. Moran says that a recall is 'unnecessary because the legislators stand for re-election every two years, at which point voters can punish the politicians for their votes.' The problem with this is that voters have very, very short memories. Remember John McCain in 2007? After pushing his amnesty bill, his approval rating had plummeted among Republicans and his presidential campaign was in tatters; he seemed like a dead man walking. Yet in 2008 he became the GOP nominee." ...

"A clause included in this new law allowed home rule local governments to enact their own so-called 'assault weapon' bans within ten days of House Bill 183’s enactment. In the days preceding and immediately following enactment, a flurry of city council meetings were scheduled to discuss or pass a ban on popularly owned semi-automatic firearms."

"Indeed there are gun crimes committed every day in cities like Trenton, Camden Newark, etc. What are the politicians Like Bonnie Watson Coleman, Sheila Oliver and Steve Sweeney DOING about the gang violence and drug dealing responsible for these crimes - NOTHING! What are they doing about the underlying causes of these crimes such as poverty, loss of jobs and poor quality education in our inner cities - NOTHING! What they *ARE* doing is trying to deflect attention away from their own incompetence and onto the law abiding gun owner who not ONLY is not the problem, but who has a CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED right to keep and bear arms." ...

"The constant drumbeat from politicians and gun control advocates continues apace, despite the fact that 'stand your ground' laws were never a part of this case. Wednesday, Tracy Martin spoke to members of the Black Caucus in Washington to urge them to change the law on the federal level to make it that SYG laws wouldn’t apply to a person who was the 'initial aggressor.' Exactly what that means and how it would be legislated remains rather unclear, and sounds to be about as effective as an 'assault weapons' ban." ...

"The making of the Black man into Public Enemy Number 1 began long before a rainy, dark night in a gated Florida community where a White person with a gun would be seen as a gun enthusiast -- a Second Amendment scholar -- but a Black man with a gun could only be a thug. Where an unarmed innocent did not know that he had no rights to innocence. Where a Black child’s skin convicted him on sight. Trayvon Martin had to be guilty of something so George Zimmerman’s defense attorney charged him with being armed with a sidewalk." ...
