... "But there are those who will always attempt to limit as many types of freedoms as possible. Whether it be the size of your soda, car, or your gun, these limitations all suffer the same flawed logic. Either not understanding, or refusing to accept self-defense and self-determination as a right, they’ve made proposals to deal with their own flawed world view. Gun control in the U.S. is has an ugly history, one that’s deeply seeded in racism, xenophobia, and class warfare. A fact anti-gun politicians and lobbyists purposefully avoid mentioning." ...

"Meanwhile, the U.S. Civil Rights Commission has launched its own investigation on Stand Your Ground laws ..."

"But the debate has everything backwards over who benefits from the law. Poor blacks who live in high crime urban areas are not only the most likely victims of crime, they are also the ones who benefit the most from Stand Your Ground laws. It makes it easier for them to protect themselves when the police can't be there fast enough. Rules that make self-defense more difficult would impact blacks the most." ...

"Reader Christian writes:"
"So I’m trying to get my very petite Fianceé into shooting. She’s 5′ 2″, and weighs 100 lbs soaking wet. The term 'waifish' comes to mind when describing her. So the .22lr is about right for her, since she has small hands and isn’t particularly strong. I happen to agree with you that shot placement is far more important than caliber size, so I’m looking for a small caliber pistol to be her 'go-to' piece if she needs it." ...

"She was placing shots low and right very consistently. Her grip, stance and form looked excellent, so I next had her close her eyes as I loaded a mag for her. Eyes open, she did not know the mag was empty and her first shot told the whole story: At the dry-fire 'click' the muzzle was yanked in a big low-right flinch."

"The marriage of technology and weaponry is creating a growing but expensive class of 'smart' guns that promises to boost security, improve accuracy -- and make guns even deadlier. But even gun-rights advocates aren't sure that's such a good thing."

"'Are there any legitimate gun owners who are calling for this technology for safety? I haven't heard of one,' said Jim Wallace, executive director of the Massachusetts Gun Owners Action League, in a recent interview."

"One example is a newly unveiled 'supergun' from TrackingPoint that emulates the target-locking technology from jets to turn any rifle into an ultra-accurate sniper gun capable of consistently hitting a target from 1.75 miles away." ...

"CNN's Piers Morgan plugged Great Britain's handgun ban on Tuesday as he and attorney Star Jones wondered how to take more guns off the streets in the U.S."

"'Well, in Britain, we had a sort of dramatic reduction in all fire offenses when we made it a mandatory five-year jail sentence if you were caught with a handgun. It works,' Morgan insisted. Jones suggested hiking the cost of ammunition." ...

Submitter's Note: Well if your definition of "works" includes violent crime (like assault and sexual assault) rates 4 to 10 times as high in the UK as those in the US then yes, I guess your scheme does "work". For those of us who are not insane, however, it is an abject failure.

"When I was younger, I spent countless hours hunched over a reloading vise, cranking out rifle and shotgun reloads for my days afield with gun in hand. ... My view of guns was closely associated with the romantic images found on the cover of Field and Stream magazine, and nobody in my small-town ... ever used one for anything more deadly than dispatching a deer or a pheasant."

"However, there is another side to guns that thrives outside of my Rockwell painting. There are guns in the hands of criminals, terrorists, and the mentally ill. Gun-aided mayhem and murder are the malignant side of gun ownership, and I long ago emerged from that romantic painting to recognize that we have a serious problem with gun violence in America." ...

Since then, there has been no doubt that there is a Fundamental Right to bear arms in the home, because the case decided related to a regulation applying to the home, but those opposed to lawful gun ownership and possession have argued that the Right is limited to the home, and does not confer a right to carry a weapon outside the home. As discussed below, Federal District and Circuit Courts have come to different conclusions, necessitating Supreme Court clarification in the very near future." ...
