David Codrea: Case SCOTUS Didn’t Hear Points to Larger Concern for Gun Owners

"The fallout from two recent Supreme Court rulings is receiving needed attention, as it’s up to activist gun owners to keep apprised of looming threats and opportunities, and to minimize damage/maximize gains of case outcomes. For one decision, Gun Owners of America has been at the forefront of warning against the anti-gun dangers hidden in Obamacare. On the flip side, some are looking at the same sex marriage ruling to prompt states to recognize concealed carry permits. But as important as those concerns are, they may ultimately become moot points if a case SCOTUS declined to hear is an indicator of things to come . . ." ...

"There’s a dangerous scientific study making the rounds, even some pro-gun websites have featured it, titled 'Gun ownership and social gun culture.'"

"It’s bunkum — pure fiction."

"It’s an insidious piece of work, written by four academics who used firearm policy information from the Brady Center and the CDC’s Injury Prevention and Control Center — two groups well known for their opposition to the Second Amendment." ...

"Fireworks are pretty. Freedom, not so much."

"I'm thinking about the barrage of more than 200 emails from readers reacting to my recent column that was critical of the National Rifle Association's loose interpretation of the Second Amendment and the NRA's zero tolerance for any kind of gun control."

"I usually add an email address at the end of a column, a practice that some newspapers encourage because it invites interaction with readers. Other papers, such as the Chicago Tribune, omit emails, insulating writers from vitriolic onslaughts." ...
 

Why It’s OK for Israelis to Own Guns But Not You. Allegedly.

"Gun control advocates use tortured logic to defend their positions. Take the Bloomberg-distributed commentary Why Israel has lots of guns but few gun crimes by Rabbi Daniel Gordis [above]. It starts out like this: 'Early in 2002, as the Second Intifada was raging, guns — normally ubiquitous in Israeli society — were even more in evidence. In restaurants, at synagogue and especially on the street, you could see pistols stuck into men's belts or pants. One of my wife’s closest friends kept a gun in her purse.' And then he takes a sharp turn to the left . . ." ...

"'Bryan Scott Wolfinger is charged with going armed to the terror of the public.' Is that a crime? Or even a sentence? 'Police said Wolfinger was carrying an AR-15 assault rifle, military ballistic panel carrier and multiple high-capacity rifle magazine when he was taken into custody.' Wolfinger was arrested yesterday at the Cross Creek Mall in Fayetteville, North Carolina (open carry of long guns is legal in the Tar Heel State). According to wral.com, the Ft.

"The Benelli M4 is a truly great shotgun. Reliable, enjoyable, and easy to aim — that’s the way to make ’em. The only problem is that it forces you to make a financial choice: do I want to buy the shotgun, or a small airplane? Benelli’s gear is top notch but it comes with a price tag that matches that awesomeness. For those of us who want both the shotgun and the airplane, the Turkish firearms manufacturer Linberta makes a smoothbore that has all the same bells and whistles as the Benelli M4 but without the jaw-dropping price tag. In theory. Is this another case of too good to be true? . . ." ...

nd Amendment rights,' while another piece in that same publication back on June 23 suggested that Americans 'feared increased gun control' because of the 'first black president.'"

"In yesterday’s Huffington Post, there was a first-person piece about Sandy Hook and Charleston that wondered, 'As yet more victims of gun violence are laid to rest in the U.S., what will this mean for gun control legislation? Changes that may inhibit some citizens’ right to possess, but ultimately lead to reduced gun violence and unnecessary death? Or further denial that lax gun laws and gun violence are linked, and another ramping up of state and civilian 'security'?'" ...

"The deaths of nine church members in Charleston, South Carolina have churned long-brewing anger, resentment and debates about racism, the fallacy of a post-racial America and a failure of lawmakers to address what critics say is the epidemic of gun violence in an allegedly 'advanced' country."

"It is the gun control debate — a debate that has a long history of going nowhere — that has risen to the forefront." ...

"An e-mail yesterday from the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR) complained about “deception” and “outright lies” told by the so-called “gun lobby,” ironically two days after the Washington Post called out a Connecticut senator for using misleading data about school shootings from Everytown for Gun Safety, and after a CNN poll released Tuesday showed shrinking support for Barack Obama’s gun policy."

"It also came on the same day a prominent California anti-gunner pleaded guilty to racketeering charges that included a gun trafficking scheme. ..." ...

"In the run-up to July 4, with terrorists calling for attacks on Americans on native soil (the term 'Homeland' is ultra-creepy), the mainstream media is busy reassuring citizens that America’s anti-terrorist cops stand a good chance to thwart a plot. Or, if they can’t, that American law enforcement will respond quickly and end the carnage. See something? Say something. Good luck with that. No really. Meanwhile, here’s an idea . . ."

"Two stories inspired me this week on the eve of July 4th celebrations. The nation was on high alert because of possible terrorist attacks, but these stories gave me hope. One were sisters who had intruders enter their home. The other was a well-known anchor woman and her husband also well known and how they handled an armed person. Incidentally, this outcome quieted those who wanted guns removed from the hands of normal people." ...

"I've been hearing a lot of people wanting guns removed from people's homes because guns kill people. OK, I give you the fact that guns do kill, but they are not the culprit. It's those who illegally get their hands on the guns who cause the killings. I think it's important for anyone who wants to own a gun to go through proper channels to purchase guns and get the appropriate training with them." ...

"On June 16, 2015 before an en banc panel of eleven judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, Circuit Judge Carlos Bea asked the California Solicitor General a yes or no question. Does the core right of the Second Amendment extend beyond the home? After hemming and hawing for a moment the Solicitor General conceded that it is difficult to read the Heller decision and come to the conclusion that the Second Amendment does not apply outside the home." ...

"An eagle-eyed bi-lingual reader spotted a story in swr.de reporting that the German government has confiscated legally held firearms from members of German biker gangs. Gangs? Google translate calls them 'rockers.' Like this: 'The members of the Bandidos MC Rocker groups, Gremium MC, Hells Angels MC and MC Outlaws will revoked the previously existing weapons permit due to the new legal situation, the Ministry continued to communicate. Altogether it involves about 600 persons who thus have to give weapons that they have previously possessed legally . . ." ...
 

 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].
