... "SCOTUS has been ducking that issue for a long time, along with that most inconvenient of clauses, 'shall not be infringed.' They bought some time with prior rulings that allowed for enough 'reasonable restrictions' and 'compelling state interests' to give a nod to individual rights while not overturning the status quo. But as for full-blown recognition for what Tench Coxe, a delegate for Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress, advocated, that’s something they just won’t cede, because those who have power rarely voluntarily share it." ...

"As of Sunday morning (the time I captured this screen shot), an MSNBC poll of 90,000 respondents indicated that the vast majority of Americans support constitutional carry of firearms."

"I realize the survey is not scientific, and I understand the difficulty in making the claim that 88 percent of Americans believe people should be allowed to carry guns in public. It's downright impossible to get 88 percent of Americans to agree on anything let alone a controversial issue such as firearms. But this simple survey does show us that Americans do prefer to have their rights inviolate, and they prefer freedom to the anti-life, anti-rights, and anti-freedom agenda of Bloomberg's astroturf groups.:" ...

"That bill is S. 2363, sponsored by anti-gun crazy Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC), with the chief cosponsors being endangered anti-gunners who are Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Udall (D-CO), Mark Warner (D-VA) and Al Franken (D-MN)."

Today, I noticed that newyorkmag.com noticed something about the survey that I hadn’t noticed. 'Everytown for Gun Safety says it’s ready to begin surveying federal candidates about their positions on gun issues as the first step in its plan to sway the midterm elections — however, candidates won’t receive a letter grade after completing the questionnaire.'

"'If one Georgia company is successful, accidental shootings that injure people may become a thing of the past,' Jesse Berney opines at bluenationreview.com.

"Gun control advocates talk about 'easy access to guns.' They don’t want to deny guns to law-abiding Americans. Just certain types of guns. And ammunition magazines. I mean, just 'bad guys.' And mentally ill people. How do you make the distinction? Background checks! If everyone who wanted to purchase a gun had to go through a background check, only the good guys would get the guns. Wrong. But anyway . . ."

"All the rejuvenated talk of banning all semi-automatic firearms, 'high capacity' magazines ('progressive'-speak for 'standard capacity' magazines), and private sales (and a mandate for 'universal background checks' would be just that--a ban of private sales) ignores the fact that technology is on the verge of making such endeavors utterly irrelevant. When one can after all simply print these items at home, without asking the government's permission, 'gun control' will have suffered its long and richly deserved death without dignity." ...

"It seems like more and more of my day is filled with handling the administration of items regulated by the National Firearms Act of 1934. And with the influx of new silencer, SBR and machinegun buyers, there’s a flood of people who don’t know what they’re doing. Last week I had a fellow purchase a silencer on my webstore and he had his FFL send me over their license. There was no SOT attached, so I asked his dealer to send theirs over so I could get forms filed at ATF. What I expected was a scan, or in a pinch – a cameraphone photo of an SOT.

"I once joked that my ideal handgun is a CZ-75 chambered in .45 ACP that costs $1. Well, no handgun costs a buck and CZ doesn’t make the CZ-75 in .45. ... The Magnum Research Jericho series, currently called the Baby Eagle II ... is based on the CZ-75 design and takes a lot of lessons from it. The .45 ACP chambering isn’t as much of a compromise as it is in most up-chambered weapons since the original Jericho was designed to fire the now defunct .41 Action Express cartridge. While I’ve always had a fascination with the Jericho series of pistols I still did a great deal of research before making their .45 ACP version my own. Everything looked positive so I took the plunge two years ago . . ." ...

"The 'snub-nose .38' revolver, dating back to the Colt Detective Special of 1926, is a standard prop in noir movies. Most see it as an urban gun, something to hide under the suit in the dangerous streets of the big cities. However, country folk like ‘em too. Where I live nowadays, I often spot one in the jeans pocket of a workin’ man, or even the front chest pouch of a farmer’s overalls ..."

"A general rule of little guns is that 'they’re easy to carry, but hard to shoot.' A Google or Amazon search should get you to some useful advice, such as the book 'The Snubby Revolver' by my old friend Ed Lovette, who has 'been there and done that.' Now we can add a small but meaty booklet by an old friend, Michael deBethencourt." ...

Excuse this African-American’s ignorance, but what’s the difference between those ethnicities?

"The best part of having Chris Christie run for President, at least before he got stuck in horrible traffic on the George Washington Bridge, was going to be the guy’s independence, in a Republican Party that too often looks like a flock of sheep."

"But now he shows no independence on guns, along with no courage, with his veto of a bill that would have reduced the size of ammunition magazines in his state from 15 rounds to 10. Christie also shows no governance that anyone could ever respect by refusing to meet with Sandy Hook parents who just wanted to talk to him about that, whether Christie’s mind was made up or not." ...

"Fully 92% of the voters surveyed in a new poll — including 86% of registered Republicans — support mandating background checks before gun purchases."

"But Congress has stubbornly refused to extend this most basic precaution against gun violence to all firearms sales."

"So the federal law that requires instant background checks in licensed gun stores continues to exempt gun shows and private deals, which account for an estimated 40% of all weapons sales."

"Not funny?"

"You’re right, but unfortunately it is indicative of what is going on in The Windy City on a daily basis – one might call it an epidemic of murders by gunshot. You don’t have to do anything to be shot, just be in the city."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? [...] The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!" —Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago (Chapter 1 "Arrest")
