"'The right to keep and bear arms, as defined by the Second Amendment, is under unprecedented attack,' a website for the in-development production of 'Infringed: Second Amendment in the Crosshairs' asserts. The proposed project is to produce 'a two-hour theatrical documentary,' and producers are currently seeking funding to make it happen."

"'Infringed' will explore, in a factual and in-depth manner, the rationale behind the Bill of Rights -- especially the Second Amendment,' the website explains. 'Importantly, the project will examine how those liberties, so elegantly crafted by our founding fathers, have protected Americans for more than 200 years. It will also expose the efforts by today’s radical statists to infringe upon, erode and ultimately remove these fundamental rights.'" ...

"On August 23, 22-year-old Christopher Lane, from Australia, studying in Oklahoma on a baseball scholarship, was shot to death while jogging, allegedly by three teenagers who committed this heinous act out of 'boredom.' With the sick evil of the young thugs responsible for this atrocity readily available to blame, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia Tim Fischer (clearly quite proud of his contribution to the near-total disarmament of law-abiding Australians as part of the Howard administration) is instead focusing primarily on America's gun culture. ..." ...

... "One could, of course, point out that even in 2003, nine years into the 1994 AWB, AR-15s in various configurations that did not meet the arbitrary definition of 'assault weapons' were still easily available (as the Violence Policy Center never tired of wailing about), as were aftermarket attachments by which one could easily transform an erstwhile legal rifle into a banned, supposedly far 'more deadly,' 'assault weapon.'"

"The much larger point, though, is that Cooke is just the most recent example of a murderous beast of a semi-human predator pressed into service to the forcible citizen disarmament agenda, calling for the disarmament of those of us, who unlike them, are not perpetrators of heinous crimes. ..." ...

"Remember 'Jim Crow?' It was a term used to describe post Civil War laws and ordinances that enabled racial discrimination and segregation, in flagrant violation of the Constitution. Well Jim Crow has found a new home in Newtown thanks to an invitation from the Newtown Action Alliance, endorsed and signed by First Selectwoman Pat Llodra."

"Yes, welcome to Newtown, Jim Crow, where the exercise of certain Constitutional rights and certain individuals aren’t welcome. Violators will be picketed, refused service, and called vile names in public forums. The 'violators' are residents of Newtown and Connecticut who own and possess a gun." ...

"The anti-gun Mayors Against Illegal Guns announced via e-mail yesterday that it will deliver backpacks to member of Congress next month representing the number of children who are killed with guns every day, on the same day that Barack Obama met with several mayors to promise what the Washington Times called 'unilateral action on guns.'" ...
"Each day that passes without action from our leaders, 33 more Americans are murdered with guns -- including seven children." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Based on the CDC's WISQARS numbers from 2006 - 2010, in order to get 7 "children" a day murdered with a gun you have to include "children" of up to 20 years old.

"When I first heard news of this month’s worldwide travel alert proclaiming potential terrorist attacks emanating from al-Qaeda or its affiliates in the Arabian Peninsula to be particularly imminent throughout all of August, an excerpt from John W. Whitehead’s newly released A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State (SelectBooks, June 2013) immediately came to mind:"
"Fear, and its perpetuation by the government, is the greatest weapon against freedom, and propaganda is the most effective tool for keeping the populace in check. Propaganda, an expertise of politicians, is in reality a fiction. But it is an effective fiction. ..." ...

"For a guy who has been pushing various levels of gun control to curb violence in American neighborhoods – from expanded background checks to renewing the ban on so-called 'assault rifles' — President Barack Obama seems to have a different perspective when it comes to firing missiles at people, if one judges today's reports from news agencies including Reuters." ...

"While most Americans will be chillin' out, maxin' and relaxin' this Labor Day weekend, dedicated patriots in Colorado are hard at work preparing for a groundbreaking special election day with nationwide repercussions. George Washington would be proud."

"On September 10, Democratic legislator and state Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs faces a citizen recall for his sellout to New York anti-gun special interests, for his betrayal of transparency and accountability to constituents, and for his destructive economic policies that are driving thousands of jobs away. Also up for recall: Democratic legislator Angela Giron of Pueblo." ...

"An exploratory gubernatorial run by State Senator Toni Boucher has produced an unequivocal rejection from the state’s largest Second Amendment gun rights group, the '8,900 + member' Connecticut Citizens Defense League. Such a run will not be supported, CCDL announced in a statement released today ..."

"'Senator Boucher voted in 'lock step' with the Republican leadership in the passage of an historic gun control law which alienated many law-abiding people,' CCDL President Scott Wilson explained, revealing the exasperation grassroots gun rights activists are feeling with supposedly conservative representatives who turned their backs on the core gun owner constituency in the post-Newtown rush to enact disarmament laws." ...

"The car dealerships could not find the people who had defaulted on loans and whose vehicles they intended to repossess."

"So on about 60 occasions over 29 months, they turned to an Omaha police detective with access to a database containing information on suspects and witnesses, criminal histories, driver's license information and other data."

"The dealerships and repossession companies received leads on the locations of vehicles from detective Kevin L. Cave in exchange for paying him as much as $200 per lead."

"Cave had access to computers intended for and legally restricted to legitimate police work, and not meant to be used to run a side business." ...

"The officer, Michael Ackermann, 30, claimed that the photographer interfered with an arrest last year of a teenage girl by repeatedly discharging his camera’s flash in Officer Ackermann’s face. But the officer’s account unraveled after ... the Bronx district attorney, examined photographic evidence and determined that the photographer, Robert Stolarik, did not use a flash and did not have one on his camera at the time.

"If you were packing heat to the Aug. 21 City Club of Boise event (presuming you were also holding a concealed weapon permit), you would have been more than welcome. That said, the conversation was anything but heated."

"Boise's City Club, known for nearly two decades as a platform for compelling civil discourse of differing opinions, instead chose to offer a pair of speakers with the same mantra: guns are good. In fact, the speakers argued that more weapons and ammunition would only make Idaho better." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense or by partial orders of towns...is a dissolution of the government. — John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America (1787-1788).
