"You have to be a spinmeister to belong to one of America’s anti-gun organizations. Spree shooting in a gun free zone? Spin: it’s the easy access to guns, ammo, accessories, etc. LEO shooting bystanders while attempting to shoot lone gunman? Spin: see, if highly trained officers cannot hit the target, how can some rube of ordinary, gun clinging, self reliant persuasion hope to do any better? Defensive Gun Use? Spin: huh? According to the spinners, researchers Kleck and Lott obviously just made up all the stats demonstrating the value of defensive gun use, the CDC is mistaken about firearms safety, and Vic Stacey was shooting at point blank range.

The young skull full of much asks, 'How many more tragedies need to happen before the United States joins the modern world in banning assault weapons?' You know Cal, just because 'everybody else' is doing something doesn’t make it a good idea. Didn’t your mother ever ask you, 'If everybody was jumping off a cliff, would you jump too?' . . ." ...

"Actions speak volumes about a person, and that is why I’m impressed with Vicki Kawelmacher. Vicki is a firearms instructor in Reno, Nevada. She specializes in teaching women. She offers free classes to students who have a signed protective order. A protective order, also called a restraining order in some other states, means these students convinced a judge there is a serious threat to them or their children. These students need to learn self-defense right now. Vicki has been in that position with an attempted abduction of her daughter. Vicki knows that a piece of legal paper is ineffective without a means to back it up." ...

"The Twitter homepage for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence describes the CSGV’s mission as 'Seeking laws to prevent deranged killers from arming LEGALLY. Dedicated to peace & nonviolence. Public safety=NO vigilantism.' So I guess it’s OK for deranged killers to arm ILLEGALLY. What about the killers who aren’t deranged? Do they arm legally or illegally? Oh wait! I know! Illegally. Do I get a prize or something? Nope, just the same freedom of speech shared by this dope. Which is OK.

"Guns can't seem to keep themselves out of the limelight. Urban shootings, outside the ghettos where most shootings take place, are now becoming national news. What changed?"

"Why aren't we talking about waiting periods anymore? The media and the gun-control movement have abandoned waiting periods, but they used to be the holy grail. Why is that?"

"It turned out waiting periods didn't matter. They didn't work, had no impact on crime, they were a distraction. They were just an attack that could be made on guns, the flavor of the day, a reflection of what the public out here perceives as media hatred for guns. ..." ...

"While attending the Civilian Response to Terrorist Threats class recently at the SIG Sauer academy, I made a rather fatal mistake. I was in the process of purchasing a SIG Sauer P938 (click here for my review on that gun) and I happened to jokingly ask the guys in the pro shop if they had anything else that I needed to get. One of them asked me, 'How about a P210?' I couldn’t believe that they had one. The P210 is an almost mythical gun – you hear about it, but you rarely see it. It’s manufactured in very small quantities and you have to look long and hard to find someone who has it in stock. A few months ago while contemplating the purchase of a highly accurate gun for IDPA that could make up for some of my shortcomings . . ." ...

"The Myth: Shotguns Are Safer than Rifles for Hunting"

"The Reasoning: Because shotgun slugs have lower velocities than modern centerfire rounds, they are less powerful and cannot travel as far, and therefore there is less chance that an errant shot could injure or kill a bystander. This is why states like Iowa and Illinois ban rifles for deer hunting and only allow shotgun slugs or ballistically similar muzzleloaders, right?"

"'We can keep doing that,' he said, 'but we have to pass stronger gun laws in this state. We're not talking about repealing conceal/ carry, but making sure we have a tougher set of laws dealing with assault weapons and other types of guns.'"

"† A 28 percent increase in the city’s homicide total compared with last year."

"We know there is no easy answer to gun violence. But 'Chicago Under Fire,' a special three-day report by Chicago Sun-Times reporter Frank Main, reveals one way we are not doing all we can."

"We are not doing enough to stop the torrent of guns flowing into the city from elsewhere in Illinois, particularly the suburbs." ...

"Could a letter writer's over-the-top reaction ('What gun problems?' Aug. 16) to the proposal of state Senate Bill 249 [the Bullet Button ban bill] indicate a fear that somehow the passing of this type of bill infringes on the protection of Second Amendment rights?"

"SB 249 is well-meant and its intention to limit the number of rounds a magazine can hold will not interfere with citizens' right to bear arms. Unfortunately, because of the National Rifle Association's political clout and rhetoric, this type of bill won't be enacted anytime soon, if ever. Not so surprisingly, there are a good many NRA members who support passing this type of bill." ...

... "From this perch, even if you agree with Dozier's analysis, his method of going about this ought to give pause. True, Illinois is the last state in the nation not to allow some form of concealed carry. One can debate all day long whether Illinois law is consistent with the Second Amendment. But is that for a local state's attorney to decide, or for the U.S. Supreme Court? If we're to have prosecutors unilaterally determining what's constitutional and what's not, aren't we inviting chaos, a different set of laws every time we drive across a county line? ..." ...

"Guns Save Life is encouraging gun owners throughout Illinois to buckle up a fanny pack on their waist each morning before leaving the house to get more Illinoisans used to seeing people with fanny packs – and to get more Illinoisan gun owners used to carrying guns on their person each day to potentially thwart violent attacks and keep criminals guessing who might be armed. Not just any fanny packs, of course, but ones made specifically to transport handguns."

"Illinois law provides for transportation of unloaded, encased firearms by individuals holding a FOID card. So long as the ammunition is not in the gun itself (or magazine in the magazine well of a semi-auto pistol), an encased firearm is perfectly legal to transport on your person." ...

"'[Queensland's] Newman government has set up a pro-gun advisory panel that will advise on how to cut the 'red tape, delays and bureaucracy' gun owners face when applying for a licence or a new weapon,' theaustralian.com.au reports. That can't be right, can it? 'All six members have links to the gun lobby, and include firearms dealers and shooting association representatives.' That can’t be right, can it? Queensland Police Union president Ian Leavers [above] doesn’t think so . . ." ...

"Frank Reid says the idea came to him several years ago, back when he was a regional councillor. Perhaps it was the year he ran for regional chair, in 1991, when he was spending a lot of time looking for campaign planks and thinking about how to solve the problems of a large city." ...

"Reid still thinks he has a winner. An answer to a pressing societal problem that is so simple, so obvious, it is the veritable 'solution lurking right under our noses.'"

"Some years ago, Reid decided it was time to jot down what he was thinking, this grand idea. He would organize his thoughts and put them into words, to see if there was a hidden flaw also lurking somewhere under the nose."

"'No more fire arms in our cities!' he wrote." ...
