... "Still, in terms of causing puzzlement and head-scratching, Smith’s response does not rise (sink?) to the level of the amicus brief filed by the Magnolia Bar Association, filed on August 6 in support of his position. Part of the National Bar Association 'composed primarily of African-American Lawyers,' the brief actually provides some illuminating historical information, including the existence of multiple Mississippi state constitutions throughout time and various levels of legal recognition accorded to the keeping and bearing of arms throughout the state’s history." ...

Jim Crowe and Gun Control

"The black community in the United States has, historically, been in favor of gun control. The ignorance of this stance is shocking, when one considers the history of gun control and its link to Jim Crowe laws. These laws were enacted across the country from the end of the Civil War up to the 1960s to maintain a system of racial segregation. Laws that withheld the right of gun-ownership from black Americans were part of this system. Democrats ... understood that no government can successfully oppress any section of the population without first disarming it. Jim Crowe laws did not simply deprive blacks of the same opportunities and resources available to whites, but ensured that the black population remained defenseless ..." ...

"'It’s not the age, it’s the mileage,' said Indiana Jones. In my case, it’s also lack of maintenance. The fact is, though, that a lot of folks find in their older years that the favorite guns of their salad days no longer seem to work as well for them as they once did. For my part, I’m happy to have made it this long; it’s the decrepitude, not the age, that bothers me." ...

"Just because chicken meat is white doesn’t mean it’s actually white meat from the chicken, regardless of what the commercials say. The same thing is true when it comes to 'mil-spec,' or military specification, a term that is tossed around very casually these days. While a lot of parts are advertised as being mil-spec, in truth very few of them are. This fact was really driven home this last week when I was assembling an AR carbine . . ." ...

Until, that is, the US Forest Service issued an order banning Tannerite and similar products on federal lands in Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas Nebraska and South Dakota.

"No one has to tell the People of the Gun that ammo supply hasn’t yet caught up with demand in this post-Newtown world. Gun owners seem to have raised their fists, Scarlet O’Hara style, and vowed, “As God is my witness, I will never run out of my chosen calibers again!.” Which, if true, would go a long way toward explaining the fact that even though gun prices and availability have returned to pre-panic levels, gun food at your friendly neighborhood WallyWorld or LGS is still conspicuous by its absence. Manufacturers feel your pain…and know an opportunity when they see one. Case in point: Remington’s just broken ground on an expansion of their Arkansas ammunition plant. ..." ...

"Full disclosure: I said this to my barista today right after completing my purchase, and she seemed a little unnerved by it. As a greeting to your Starbucks barista, 'Happy Bring Your Gun to Starbucks Day!' ranks a little below 'What a beautiful skin you are wearing' and 'That’s a very fresh-looking ear' in the annals of creepy ways to greet a person. But just a little."

"The Southland Mall in Memphis, TN has a no guns policy. That policy apparently extends to business owners, workers and even security guards inside the mall."

"However, one shop owner carried one at his cookie shop anyway, taking a 'refuse to be a victim' mindset."

"When three men stole cash from the register, the store owner drew his 9mm handgun, chased the suspects off, and, not very smartly in our opinion, fired three 'warning shots' in the mall parking lot."

"Now the owner is facing possible eviction from the retail space he leases from the mall due to his violation of the 'no guns' policy." ...

"In the wake of the shootings at Newtown and Aurora, gun violence in America has once again become a hotbed of debate in Washington. Even months after these tragedies, events that spark the fire of the gun control conversation seem to happen almost constantly. Both sides of the debate need to come to the table with an informed mind that is open to suggestions on how to curb gun violence, but this involves carefully looking at the proposals put into the public domain." ...

"Rep. Tom Cotton keeps trying to remind Arkansas voters that Sen. Mark Pryor once supported some degree of gun control."

"But New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg isn’t helping."

"The group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, of which Bloomberg is chairman, has bankrolled $350,000 worth of television ads in Arkansas to hit Pryor, a Democrat, for opposing a Senate bill to expand background checks."

"For Cotton, a Republican who is challenging Pryor in a competitive Senate race and trying to portray him as anti-guns, the ads send an untimely and highly visible message to Arkansans that shows exactly the opposite." ...

"GOVERNOR CHRISTIE signed 10 bills related to gun safety Thursday, prompting mild applause from Democrats and little negative reaction from Second Amendment groups. One reason for the muted response was that the governor hasn't taken action yet on four other gun-related bills passed this year by the Legislature."

"But a more overriding reason why this really isn't big news is because New Jersey already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. Those who want to purchase a handgun must be approved by their local police departments, and those who want to legally carry a handgun need approval from a judge" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908 [by an Indian extremist opposed to Gandhi's agreement with Smuts], whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defend me, I told him it was his duty to defend me even by using violence. Hence it was that I took part in the Boer War, the so-called Zulu Rebellion and [World War I]. Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. — Mohandas K. Gandhi, Young India, August 11, 1920 from Fischer, Louis ed.,The Essential Gandhi, 1962
