"[The] horrible shooting in Colorado occurred in yet another place where guns are banned. And that's consistent with a trend: With a single exception, every multiple-victim public shooting in the U.S. ... since at least 1950 has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry their own firearms."

"The Cinemark movie theater in Aurora, like others run by the chain around the country, displayed warning signs that it was illegal to carry guns into the theater."

"... In other words, despite more than 4% of the adult population of Colorado having concealed handgun permits, a gunman intent on killing a lot of people could be confident that law-abiding citizens there would be sitting ducks." ...

"New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is almost as big a media whore as the senior senator from New York, Chuck Schumer. Given half a chance he'll pontificate about salt and sugar and guns and breast milk ad nauseum."

"That is why I agree with Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation and CCRKBA that it is strange that Bloomberg declined an invitation to speak at the 2012 Gun Rights Policy Conference. He would look brave for going before a group of gun rights activists and he'd get tons of publicity out of it. Moreover, while in Orlando, he could check on how his taxpayer paid MAIG regional coordinator is doing."

"Alan sent out a notice about Bloomberg's declining his invitation this afternoon." ...

"On Aug. 5, when a gunman drove to a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee and started shooting his 9-mm handgun, some ran and some leapt to stop him. One of the six who died was temple president Santwat Singh Kaleka, who has been hailed as a hero by witnesses who say he tried to disarm the shooter. The first cop on the scene, Brian Murphy, took nine bullets as he also tried to help. Miraculously, Murphy wasn’t killed."

"Why do some people confront danger while most scamper for the exits? Altruism emerges in many disasters. A few weeks ago, three women came forward to say they survived the cinema shooting in Aurora, Colo., because their boyfriends shielded them. All three men are dead. ..." ...

"Eliot Spitzer, who’s still known in some circles as Client No. 9, has surveyed the American political landscape regarding gun control in the wake of the Aurora and Sikh Temple shootings and has found it wanting. In a piece for Newsday yesterday, he lamented that, 'Mitt Romney hides behind a misunderstanding of the Second Amendment, and the White House blames Congress.' But like Ford, the fallen governor has a better idea – one for taking a big bite out of semi-automatic weapons sold to the public. He wants to harness the power of the marketplace . . ." ...

"We have been recently been told by gun control activists of the utopian solution of accommodation to fight gun violence in this country, additionally, they claim the 2nd amendment is outdated and the government does have the authority to infringe on our right to bear arms. This idea of giving into a greater role of government regarding gun safety is not only absurd, but the lack of common sense on this issue is disturbing. This is not a left or right issue, libertarian or independent issue this is an American issue about the men and women of this country being able to defend themselves against tyranny and having the power to preserve liberty and freedom. ..." ...

"A couple months ago, my wonderful wife bought me a set of Howard Leight Impact Sport Electronic Earmuffs, and I’ve been testing them on and off (mostly on) since that time."

"The Impact Sport earmuffs by Howard Leight are electronic and definitely fall into the high value category. If you’ve never run electronic earmuffs before, you’re really missing out. The concept is simple – the earmuffs automatically shut off sound that is above a specified number of decibels, while allowing safe decibel levels to pass through the earmuff, and even be amplified. So if you’re shooting, you can have a conversation without shouting, while wearing earmuffs." ...

... "In 2009, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) asked my firm to conduct a poll to see whether gun owners and NRA members (past or present) held similar views. The results unmistakably pointed to the conclusion that, contrary to the pervasive perception, gun owners — including members of the NRA — overwhelmingly supported a fair number of common-sense gun measures." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: That's because the majority of people, whether or not they own guns, are not familiar with how anti-freedom these "common sense" measures are. For example while most people will support "closing the gun show loophole", very few would support the actual proposed implementation of that law which would charge gun show operators with a felony if a single "unauthorized" (i.e. not on their list) person offered a gun for sale.

"Never a dull moment! I guess this will be my year of mechanical issues. I love my two big trophies I won but a pale comparison to the stack I had last year. Canadians Jim Patton and Don Pitcairn were unstoppable with amazing scores. Jim took the overall grand agg and Don won The Lt. Governor’s Cup also known as The Chair. My US team team tied with the Canadians in score but they had us in V count. Bummer! So close. I started the match on fire on Friday." ...

"Re: 'Leaders misfire on gun laws' (commentary, Aug. 5)."

"U.S. lawmakers and intellectuals alike should reconsider their arguments on gun laws. At the time the U.S. Constitution was written, the Second Amendment was not meant for 'hunting pheasants,' but rather to protect citizens from criminals and tyrants, for each American has the right to defend his or her life."

"Virginia is considered unsafe with a Brady Campaign score of 12/100, and yet there are 213.6 violent crimes per 100,000 people in Virginia. Compare that to California with a Brady score of 81/100 but with 440.6 violent crimes per 100,000 residents. Gun laws, statistically, do not produce safety." ...
