Miller campaign should receive boosts from immigration watchdog and NRA

"As Miller says, 'The truth is, most politicians support ‘gun rights’ because it is politically expedient. Our founders embraced the right to keep and bear arms as fundamental. They knew that for a free people, it was not just a personal right, but a political right, the last line of defense against a tyrannical government.'”
 

Target’s Non-Ban Gun Ban

Target has followed Starbucks’s and Chipotle’s lead and is “asking” gun owners not to carry in their stores.

That is totally different from banning guns.

It’s meant to shut up the Lying Moms Demand Action (LMDA) members (all 30 of them), while leaving everything else status quo.

** For gun owners, it really means nothing has changed at all. **
 

LA: More laws won’t end gun crime, mass killings or violence

The first mass murder in the U.S. wasn’t by someone shooting a gun; it was by Andrew Kehoe on May 18, 1927, in Bath Township, Michigan, and killed 38 elementary school children and six adults and injured at least 58 other people. “Kehoe first killed his wife, firebombed his farm and detonated a major explosion in the Bath Consolidated School before committing suicide by detonating a final explosion in his truck. It is the deadliest mass murder in a school in United States history,” Wikipedia says. If you want to kill you don’t need a gun.

The Yates County GOP has this billboard up in the Finger Lakes in support for Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino, encouraging gun owners to register to vote to support him.

Actually, it’s basically saying that if you don’t want to register your guns through the SAFE Act, the tough gun-control law last year championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, you need to register to vote and vote for Astorino.

Anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s $50 million so-called “grassroots” organization, “Everytown for Gun Safety,” made it official Tuesday, filing papers with the Public Disclosure Commission, creating an “action fund” to support Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure sponsored by the Seattle-based Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR).

Effective July 1, 2014, two Idaho laws involving the use of guns go into effect. Both bills were backed by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and were passed in the Idaho Legislature and signed into law by Governor Butch Otter (R) during the 2014 legislative session.

Senate Bill 1254 will permit qualified retired law enforcement officers and law-abiding adults who have obtained an Idaho enhanced license to carry a concealed weapon to possess a concealed firearm on public college or university campuses.
 

Senators Cruz, Paul & Lee Insist on Pro-gun Amendments

Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) are prepared to offer genuine pro-gun amendments to this bill — like defunding Operation Choke Point and more.

But here’s the problem: Anti-gun Senator Harry Reid will try to use a procedural tactic called an “amendment tree” to block Lee, Paul, and Cruz from offering any pro-gun amendments.

These pro-gun Senators want to offer good amendments like concealed carry reciprocity, but that won’t be possible if Harry Reid blocks their ability to offer pro-gun amendments with an “amendment tree.”

In a state where commercial establishments can bar concealed carry permit holders from bringing in their guns, one western Colorado restaurant not only embraces the practice of packing heat, it encourages its customers to openly carry — and its waitresses do, too.

As she takes your order at Shooter Grill in the town of Rifle — yes, Rifle — waitress Ashlee Saenz carries a pad, pen and a loaded Ruger .357 Blackhawk handgun holstered on her leg, Old West style.

Target spokesman Molly Snyder told the Wire that they are “requesting that people do not carry any firearms in our stores, including concealed carry. We will continue to follow local laws, however, concealed weapons are included in our position.” However, Target has no plans to actually enforce its request. The Wire asked Snyder if Target will ask a gun-toting customer to leave and she said: “Because this is a request and not a prohibition, we do not plan to communicate with our customers at this time.”

Imagine living in a country where armed soldiers crash through doors to arrest and imprison citizens merely for criticizing government officials. Imagine that in this very same country, you're watched all the time, and if you look even a little bit suspicious, the police stop and frisk you or pull you over to search you on the off chance you're doing something illegal. Keep in mind that if you have a firearm of any kind while in this country, it may get you arrested and, in some circumstances, shot by police.

If you're thinking this sounds like America today, you wouldn't be far wrong. However, the scenario described above took place more than 200 years ago...

A Sacramento Superior Court jury Thursday acquitted Brandon Biagioni of murder charges in the baseball bat beating death of a 62-year-old man last year in an Orangevale garage, court officials said.

The panel returned the verdict late in the afternoon in Judge Robert Twiss’ courtroom after less than a day of deliberations. The decision took place in a retrial for Biagioni, 33, following a murder trial earlier this year that resulted in a hung jury.

At a town hall event with CNN on June 17, Hillary Clinton attacked opponents of stricter gun control. She stated, “We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.” [Emphasis added.] She distorted her opponents as terrorists.

She was also wrong about opponents being in the minority. A Gallup poll from early October 2013 found that 49 percent of Americans wanted “laws covering the sale of firearms to be more strict,” 13 percent favored less strict laws, 37 percent wanted them kept the same and 1 percent had no opinion. Otherwise stated, 49 percent were for and 50 percent were against increased gun control.

The federal government has tried for years to put the Bundys out of business and they had already taken a large portion of Bundy's land for the desert tortoise. Representative Dina Titus stated two times on the Jon Ralston show that our government has been trying for years to get the rest of their land, and added that this whole episode has just set them back.

The "armed gang" you referred to were citizens demonstrating their Second Amendment rights. Remember, it was the heavily armed BLM that showed up with weapons first. And do you ever remember the our government taking armed guards to collect a debt?

Ladies are going crazy for "discreet" bra holsters at the NRA store, and the gents are carrying in Carytown, much to the dismay of the fixie crowd. It's all happening for Second Amendment Men and Women today.

First, to Richmond, Virginia, where the charming young men in the photograph above—in front of a children's book store, next to a toy store—have taken their appeal for equality with the gun-bereft to the artsy bohemian Carytown retail district. The "Open Cary" crew takes a weekly stroll through the streets, with a 300-strong rally planned for Independence Day.

The Florida Supreme Court will consider whether convicted felons have the right to claim immunity under the state's "stand your ground" self-defense law, even if they are barred from possessing guns in the first place.

Justices agreed this week to hear the case of Brian Bragdon, who was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, shooting into an occupied vehicle, discharging a firearm from a vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to court documents.

Richard Martinez, whose 20-year-old son was killed in a shooting rampage near the University of California, Santa Barbara in late May, acknowledges that calling for tougher gun-control laws in Florida isn't easy.

But as Martinez travels the country crusading for political discussion on "sensible" gun regulations, he said Wednesday he hoped to leave a powerful message with elected officials as he visited Florida's Capitol.
 

Gun Sales Fall As America’s Irrational Fears Subside

Last month Smith & Wesson, one of the top gun manufacturers in America, reported a steep drop in sales in its latest quarterly earnings report. Sales plunged more than 10 percent, and forecasts warn of a further decline in the coming year. This was a huge surprise to investors considering that the company is the second largest publicly traded firearms manufacturer in the United States.

Profits came up short due to a decline in “long rifle” guns. More specifically, sales of assault style weapons have seen the most precipitous decline. This coincides with a steep decline in the number of background checks conducted in the early part of this year when compared to the same time last year.

Girls With Guns, Females With Firearms, Babes with Bullets, or whatever alliterative form you prefer -- bottom line, the gentler gender has developed a relationship with packing hardware.

“I love guns -- never met one I didn’t like. I’ve shot ‘um all and love ‘em all,” says Sandy Froman, a Tucson attorney and former two-time president of the National Rifle Association who carries a gun whenever legally allowed.

Not bad for a woman who waited to pull the trigger on her first firearm until she was in her early 30s. Even that decision was prompted by necessity when someone tried to break into her home.

At a town hall meeting in Mountainside, the thunder outside was nothing compared to the storm of comments from anti-gun advocates in the room.

Congressman Leonard Lance (R-7th District) held a well-attended public town hall meeting in Mountainside on a rainy Wednesday night, a day after his office was visited by members of the advocacy group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

The Congressman was introduced by Mountainside Mayor Paul Mirabelli, who praised: “He never loses his head. One thing you can always count on is his common sense.” Lance’s calm was tried, though, as people in the crowd criticized his position on gun control.
 

NJ: Christie vetoes magazine ban bill, rewrites it as mental health measure

Gov. Chris Christie conditionally vetoed a controversial bill that would have limited gun magazines to 10 rounds or less, and then kicked the bill back to the New Jersey legislature with a host of mental health changes attached.

The bill, A2006, would have dropped the state’s current 15-round magazine limit down to 10, a move that the Governor found to be without merit.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
