TTAG’s #WhateverItTakes campaign was something of a success, internet-wise. After posting pro-gun pics riffing on Everytown for Gun Safety’s #WhateverItTakes anti-gun agitprop, we leveraged our Google ranking to knock the antis’ efforts below TTAG’s #WhateverItTakes position in Google search. We were also happy to see the rest of the gunblogosphere – including the new, feisty NRA – take up the challenge. Thanks to all who helped.

From time to time, I take my life in my own hands and write a column that I know lots of people will not like. This is one of those times.

The headlines in Milwaukee say homicides are up 80 percent. In Chicago they are up 23 percent. In Charlotte five more are dead in a drive-by shooting. The United States is on schedule to set a record of gun deaths in 2015.

The 14th anniversary this weekend of jihadist deadly attacks on domestic United States targets underscores the ongoing need for law-abiding individual citizen firearm rights," gun dean John M. Snyder said here today.

"Armed Americans must be ready, willing and able to stop murderous Islamists anywhere and anytime," Snyder added. "The anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks reminds us of this."

Ralph Bristol, Nashville, Tennessee’s talk radio king, says the Second Amendment gives Americans their best, last line of “homeland security.”

He’s taking that message on the road in his back-of-the-truck tour “to get those who are licensed to carry – to carry.”

Seattle is attempting its own version, prompting lawsuits from three gun-rights groups including the National Rifle Association. But the city's case may be quashed before it starts.

As proposed, the tax — effective in January — would add $25 to the purchase of each firearm sold in Seattle, plus 2 or 5 cents per round for ammunition, depending on the type. It's estimated to raise $300,000 to $500,000 annually for “gun safety” and violence-prevention programs, The Associated Press reports.

Everytown for Gun Safety and its wholly owned subsidiary Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America declared September 10 to be their “Day of Action.” Even before it began, we declared the campaign a damp squib. Unsurprisingly, we were proved right. Less than 100 non-dues paying “members” assembled on Capitol Hill to hear the gun rights group wave the bloody shirt for civilian disarmament.

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley calls for universal background checks, fingerprint licensing for gun purchases and a rejection of federally mandated concealed carry in a plan he says will "prevent and reduce" gun violence.

His plan, to be unveiled at a gun safety roundtable at Boys and Girls Harbor in New York City, would also ban “assault weapons” and close loopholes he says currently make women vulnerable to gun violence.".

Drone policing in US seen as 'Wild West'
Submitted by: Anonymous

Drones are increasingly making their mark in the arsenal of US police forces, operating in a legal gray area and sparking concerns of constant surveillance of civilians.

The specter of armed drones surfaced with a law passed in North Dakota last month that allows police to equip the aircraft with teargas.
"It's still a bit of a Wild West," said American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) policy analyst Jay Stanley.
Since 2012, government agencies can use small drones -- weighing less than 55 pounds, or 25 kilograms -- under certain conditions and after obtaining a certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration.
 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo Must Keep Pressing for Gun Control

Andrew Cuomo, as we all know, is a hard driving, focused strategist. This occasionally Machiavellian politician sometimes doesn’t stop to consider the consequences of his actions. When it is appropriate, I have pointed some of those instances out. On the other hand, there are times when I really admire the man’s courage. His stance on gun control, for example, deserves our support. The reaction to his SAFE Act was immediate and dramatic. A lot of Americans and New Yorkers, particularly upstate New Yorkers, love their guns.
 

Societal Decay Causes Violence, Not Guns

I'm responding to the letter by Richard A. Damon in last Sunday's Billing Gazette. He's right about the violence in our country being a learned behavior, generational and endemic. But he draws wrong conclusions from these facts as he blames a symptom (guns) instead of the source (societal decay).

Just look at Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit and the other large metropolitan centers and what they have in common. For the most part, they're run by Democrat politicians, have the most restrictive gun laws, gang violence, drugs and police forces under siege.

It’s one thing for the media to misconstrue the words of Second Amendment advocates, but it’s another level entirely when they lie about their own article. Let’s continue reading:

About midnight Tuesday, deputies said, John Heisler crept onto the property and tried to break in through a front window. Andrews and her boyfriend, 47-year-old Alton Pyles, heard a “loud crash” and ran outside.

On September 9th 2015, the members of the Tucson City Council took a vote. It was a very interesting vote in that it could go down in history as one of the dumbest and most pointless votes in the history of my hometown. And it was unanimous. The seven members of the city council (all Democrats), including the Mayor and Vice Mayor, voted to “support gun control legislation.” If you read that carefully, you’ll see why that’s so inherently insane . . .

Regarding gun violence:

Unfortunately, all societies have mentally ill people.Most societies don't arm them.

We also arm the angry, the violent, the jealous, bad guys, good guys, guys with a beef, good guys-who-turn-bad-guys, the responsible and the irresponsible.

In some cases, does anyone even know who it is we arm?shooting chapter is the first of its kind, in this part of the state.
