Christie’s Bullying Tirade Deflects from Having to Answer Tough Questions on Guns

... "Pointing out bills he did not support does not tell us what he does favor. Likewise, dismissing a 1995 campaign ad by asking if his questioner had not changed his mind in 20 years does not answer what Christie changed his mind to. What he avoided with all the skill of a seasoned political animal, was explaining – unequivocally — where he stood on the right to keep and bear arms and how he has shown leadership promoting the Bill of Rights." ...
 

Should America Subarm its Citizens?

"There’s a point between fully armed and disarmed that is subarmed. Being subarmed is dangerous. Officials would never stand for it themselves. It’s the point where you don’t have a very good gun, or certainly not the type you’d prefer, or not the type your police prefer for their own safety, and not the right ammo, or certainly not enough of it. It isn’t the caliber you want, and the magazine is too small. You’re subarmed."

"It seems there are people at work in the government and the euphemistic gun-control movement who have figured out if they can’t disarm the public ... they can subarm the public (that’s you) a little at a time. If you’re subarmed, and they’re fully armed, that’s pretty much victory for them ..." ...
 

WaPo, MSNBC choked: Americans support gun rights, carrying sidearms

"The Washington Post must have choked yesterday when it published a blog headlining the fact that Americans 'increasingly see more guns as the solution, not the problem,' while a new Quinnipiac poll released yesterday – and covered by the Denver Post – shows Colorado voters oppose tougher gun laws by a 56-39 percent margin."

"This comes on the heels of an MSNBC on-line – and unscientific – poll asking whether people should be allowed to carry guns in public. An overwhelming 92 percent said yes." ...
 

Gun laws don't deter the bad guys

"Thursday's movie theater shooting in Louisiana reaffirms the belief about dealing with the armed and violent: One of the most effective ways to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

"In this case, the good guys at Lafayette's Grand 16 theater were the police. Their intervention after two people were fatally shot prompted the gunman -- who police say had intentions to flee the scene -- to turn his pistol on himself."

"But the good guy easily could have been a legally permitted, concealed-weapon-carrying theatergoer, if not for Grand 16's stated policy prohibiting firearms 'of any kind regardless of whether openly or concealed, with or without a permit.'" ...
 

Poll: more Americans see guns as part of the solution, not the problem

"As with every such tragedy, the recent shooting in a Lafayette, Louisiana theater has brought yet another round of calls for increased gun control measures from liberal politicians. (And, sadly, a few Republicans as well.) Gun rights advocates have had to once again trudge out in front of the cameras and explain why this is precisely the wrong sort of thinking when dealing with the problems of madmen and violence. The job really shouldn’t be all that hard, particularly in light of yet another poll which shows that Americans increasingly seem to agree that a good guy with a gun will do more to handle a bad guy with a gun than any number of politicians with yet another gun grabbing bill. (The Washington Post)" ...
 

ATF Re-Classifies Certain Flares and 40mm Chalk Rounds as Explosives, Begins Confiscation

"The ATF is on a bit of a hit streak when it comes to random reclassifications. First they arbitrarily and capriciously changed their collective mind on the pistol stabilizing brace. Then they tried to ban M855 ammunition by branding it as 'armor piercing.' Now it seems that they are turning their gaze upon some of the less common items and applying their similarly capricious thought processes. The latest targets are types of projectiles which can be fired from 40mm grenade launchers, specifically parachute flares and chalk practice rounds. And their ruling could soon be expanded to include all ammunition bigger than 1/2 inch in diameter . . ." ...

"Moving is a pain. It almost feels like punishment. In my case, the rewards of freedom and liberty and reduced taxation will drastically outweigh the hassle of making my house 'California ready' in the real estate market. It isn’t like I spray painted guns on my walls or have giant animal heads decorating the bedrooms. My husband is a hunter, but he hunts for meat, not for sport, so he has no trophies. But I was still told by my real estate agent to do a few things to make my home more 'presentable' to other Californians . . ." ...

"About a week ago, a body was found decomposing in a car in Pacific Palisades ..."

"The police investigating the man’s death uncovered over 1,200 firearms (estimated to be worth $5 million), 6.5 tons of ammunition and $230,000 in cash. The police also found 14 vehicles that the man had in storage ... The man, later identified as a 60-year-old man named Jeffrey Alan Lash, told neighbors that his name was Bob Smith and that he was an undercover government operative."

"He told his fiancée and her personal assistant that he was a half-human-half-alien hybrid who was sent to Earth to work with the CIA and save the human race."

"Stories like Lash’s strongly indicate a need for gun control." ...

"In the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, the [NRA] proposed putting more guns in schools. After a racist shot up a Charleston prayer group, an NRA board member argued for more guns in church. And now predictably, politicians and gun rights advocates are calling for guns in movie theaters after a loner killed two people at a theater in Louisiana."

"The notion that more guns are always the solution to gun crime is taken seriously in this country. But the research shows ... that guns are rarely used in self-defense."

"Now a new study from researchers at Mount St. Mary's University sheds some light ... As it turns out, knowing when and how to apply lethal force in a potentially life-or-death situation is really difficult." ...

"A civilian with a concealed-carry permit provided a clear, real-life example of why an unfettered Second Amendment can be a good thing, when he responded in kind to a man who unleashed a hail of gunfire at four people, including a toddler."

"Thomas McCary, 62, and Jeaneta Walker were arguing outside an apartment complex in Cincinnati, Ohio, when McCary began shooting from a .38-caliber handgun."

"Walker was outside with her brother, Patrick Ewing, and her 1-year-old son at the time."

"Ewing has a concealed carry permit and returned fire. Ewing fired three shots, hitting McCary in the leg, police said." ...

"Civil society is based on one thing and one thing alone: the rule of law. We abide each other, our neighbors, and strangers all upon the basis that the law will be enforced to protect us and enable good commerce. A lot of gun control advocates will tell you all about how the police are sufficient to protect you. They’ll say that if you’re robbed or mugged or attacked, just roll over and play dead. The police will fix everything. There’s no need to own a gun or carry a gun on you – that’s barbaric. And then we run into cases like this one . . ." ...

"It is now clear that the 2016 Chris Christie presidential campaign is the first one predicated entirely on the hope that nobody knows how to use Google."

"Because every time the voters assemble to bask in his awesomeness, our governor seems to think he has no political record that anyone can actually consult."

"The latest example was Saturday in Iowa, where a gun enthusiast accused Christie of being a faux-Republican who does not really worship at the One True Church."

"Christie in turn challenged this fellow, a proud member of 'Iowa's only no-compromise gun group' — why compromise when they only kill 32,000 Americans a year? — to 'produce just one fact about me being anti-gun.'" ...

"On Monday, The Trace’s Adam Weinstein took on the entire field of Republican presidential candidates in a feature entitled, 'The Big Shift in How 2016 Republican Candidates Talk About Their Personal Guns.' He not only mocks the GOP contenders for expressing their support for the Second Amendment, he 'enhances' their positions in the subhead: 'What it means when would-be presidents tout their rights to shoot another American in self-defense.'"

"Apparently, Weinstein attended the Brian Williams School of Journalism."

"Writing floridly, Weinstein strains to find something—anything—in the candidates’ positions to justify his apoplexy at their support for the Second Amendment. In his opinion:" ...

... "In response to the Lafayette massacre, Mr. Perry, who continues to poll in the low single digits with those who remember him as being too dumb to be president in 2012, displayed his usual acumen for saying the absolute wrong thing. 'These concepts of gun-free zones are a bad idea,' he said. 'I think that you allow citizens of this country — who have been appropriately trained, appropriately backgrounded, know how to handle and use firearms — to carry them.'"

"When Mr. Perry was a governor, he used to go jogging on the dusty roads around Austin with a laser-sighted .380 Ruger, just in case a coyote or rattlesnake crossed his path." ...

"Two men with loaded AR-15 rifles 'on guard' outside the recruiting center, certainly makes a statement to me! Once again, thank you, Gov. Brownback. All is perfectly legal and the police literally wish you a good day. But stand down fellow Lawrencians. Their parents were in the military, so they must be good people. And I’m sure as can be that they have had oodles of training with their military assault armaments, and what a good choice for the occasion."

"That’s why I asked Gov. Andrew Cuomo to issue an executive order to enable New York National Guard members to carry a sidearm while on the job and in uniform."

"We know groups like ISIS are radicalizing people to target our military. Chattanooga, Tenn., was not the first attack at home on a military facility and, if we fail to arm our service members ... then it may not be the last." ...
