"Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) is once again demonstrating her disdain for gun owners and their rights by opposing an amendment to her Amtrak funding legislation that would allow firearms to be carried in baggage aboard trains, the [CCRKBA] said today.

"'Patty Murray evidently has a short memory span,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. 'Has she already forgotten what happened to her friend, Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels, in the primary because of his extremist anti-gun philosophy? Surely she knows about Tuesday's primary election results in New York City, where anti-gunner Richard Aborn came in last in a three-way race for Manhattan prosecutor by running on his gun control record.'" ...

"A gun maker that has been drawing attention with campaigns in the mainstream media is planning new TV and print ads that are likely to gain notice — if not notoriety."

"Henry Repeating Arms, based in Bayonne, N.J., is one of the few gun makers that advertises to general audiences. ..." ...

"The new print ad borrows the Bible from the previous one, with a twist: A man wears a holster with a gun on one side and a Bible on the other."

"'There is nothing wrong with clinging to your guns and religion,' the headline reads, quoting Anthony Imperato, president at Henry, in a clear reference to a remark last year by Barack Obama before he was elected president." ...
 

Concealed carry on campus: one step closer to mines in front lawns

"I was not able to attend [Wednesday] evening's lecture 'Guns on Campus? The New Understanding of the Right to Bear Arms,' so I wanted to give my input in writing."

"The Second Amendment does say, 'the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.' However, it says 'arms,' not just hand guns and rifles."

"In order to expand the debate on what kind of 'arms' we should be bearing, several years ago I became the founder and president of the American Land Mine Association. Our assertion was that every American had the right and privilege to possess and plant land mines anywhere they wanted. ... it made mowing the lawn much more exciting, and it taught everyone else to keep off the grass!" ...

"Pennsylvania State Representative Sam Rohrer has introduced the 'Firearms Freedom Act' (HB1988) for consideration in the state legislature. The bill is 'An Act prohibiting certain firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition from being subject to Federal law or Federal regulation.'"

"HB1988 currently has 48 additional co-sponsors, and according to FirearmsFreedomAct.com, is similar to bills recently enacted into law in both Montana and Tennessee."

"While the bill seems to focus solely on federal gun regulations, it has far more to do with the 10th Amendment’s limit on the power of the federal government. ..." ...

"I will fight every effort to further erode gun rights and would vote to repeal some laws that already on the books. I believe in the right to carry and will push as much as possible to achieve gun protections...but I also understand our political enemies and the current political climate. We have to take what we can get as we can get it and fight to take back the past overreaches of gun control advocates.. I can't give you specific answers on all your questions because I need to see specific wording on specific legislation...but I absolutely support the goals of the 2nd amendment."

"The National Rifle Association is taking aim at some mayors nationwide, including Ormond Beach's Fred Costello."

"He and 450 other members of Mayors Against Illegal Guns are being pressured to quit the organization that has a stated mission of 'preventing criminals from illegally obtaining guns and preventing those who do from using them.'"

"Costello said he has received many e-mails lately labeling him a gun-control advocate. He is the organization's sole mayor in Volusia and Flagler counties, and one of 40 in Florida."

"'The National Rife Association is basically trying to make mayors look like they are against all guns,' Costello said. 'And that's absolutely not true.'" ...

"An amendment to end the complete gun prohibition on Amtrak trains passed overwhelmingly Wednesday in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 68-30."

"Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) offered the amendment to allow law-abiding gun owners to safely and legally transport firearms when they travel on Amtrak."

"Current Amtrak regulations prohibit firearms in both checked and carry-on baggage. Sportsmen who wish to use an Amtrak train for a hunting trip, therefore, cannot include a shotgun even in their checked luggage. Likewise, travelers who have a permit to carry a concealed firearm cannot include a self-defense firearm in their checked luggage, even if they are allowed to carry in both the states of origin and destination." ...

"On June 16, 2009, I published an editorial entitled 'Will the Ohio Republican Party cement their minority status by backing anti-gun Mike DeWine for Attorney General?' For now, at least, the answer appears to be leaning to 'No.'"

"The 66-member Ohio Republican State Central Committee officially endorsed four statewide candidates last Friday, but the news was perhaps more notable was who they did NOT endorse."

"The committee endorsed John Kasich for Governor, Jon Husted for Secretary of State, Josh Mandel for Treasurer of State and Rob Portman for United States Senate. But the anti-gun candidate in the bunch - former Senator DeWine - got the committee's cold shoulder." ...

"As a longtime member of the National Rifle Association, Modesto Mayor Jim Ridenour certainly wasn't surprised to receive a recent hit-piece mailer on a local politician from the pro-gun organization."

"The NRA routinely flexes its considerable muscle to combat anyone who advocates gun control in virtually any form."

"Ridenour was surprised, however, to be its target."

"Your mayor — Jim Ridenour — joined a national anti-gun group, reads a bright- orange postcard he and every other NRA member in Modesto likely received. Urge him to quit the Bloomberg coalition today." ...

"'No, not by the Sheriff's Department, no,' said Musgrove."

"'And that's a guarantee?'"

"'Yes.'" ...
