John Longnecker: There Is No Such Thing As An Illegal Gun, Part II: Dead Mouse.

... "First, on the subject of no such thing as an illegal gun and how such gun data is useless, let me mention to non-gun owners that the Second Amendment was written for only one thing: to block anyone in this country from applying any seemingly reasonable due process [as you’re observing in this trafficking issue] to unwind the right to own and bear weapons, short of a constitutional amendment. We’re not talking about trafficking per se, we’re talking about further harassment as I’ll show. The founders knew only too well how due process could be abused to the detriment of the people, little by little, seemingly helpfully, and how it could be likely in any age, then and now. ..." ...

"The Human Rights Committee has regularly addressed the due diligence responsibilities of States parties to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. ... '[t]he Committee considers that States parties should take measures not only to prevent and punish deprivation of life by criminal acts, but also to prevent arbitrary killing by their own security forces'.[1]"

"Employing high-sounding verbiage, a new United Nations report seeks to explain why 'States' ... are obliged to protect civilians' right to life by eliminating firearms violence ... but wouldn't it be wise to first determine how well the U.N. holds itself and its member states to this standard before entrusting our lives and safety to them?" ...

"If you thought our outdoors traditions were too much a part of the fabric of our nation to be threatened, that the Second Amendment protects our hunting and shooting traditions the way it was intended to, you'd better be sitting down as you read this."

"Richard Pearson, the Executive Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association ... is one of the few who has been standing between Illinois' 1.5 million recreational shooters ... and the misguided and unruly horde that's clamoring at the gates demanding that American's guns be taken away." ...

"'For all those who think that if we give the anti-gunners just a little, they would be satisfied and go away,' Pearson said, they should consider a frightening development. 'Maryland Cease Fire now says there is no difference between a so-called 'assault weapon' and any other firearm. They are now pushing for a ban on all long guns.'" ...

"Republican candidate for Attorney General Poochigian is crying foul over a Jerry Brown ad that features an Oakland Police Department official. As the Republicans know, the ad meets all legal guidelines. But, they complain, it avoids breaking those guidelines in an 'unethical manner'."

"Remarkably, the Oakland Tribune bit and made that the lead in their story on the ad. But the point of the ad was the fact that Poochigian opposed law enforcement and remained the lap dog of the NRA as a Member of the Legislature." ...

"Cole Kucera's first wild game hunt got off to a chilling start, but things heated up fast."

"The 12-year-old rural Oconto youth, a sixth-grader at Oconto Falls Middle School, passed on four smaller black bears Sept. 8 before arrowing a 265-pounder on his grandfather's land in Douglas County."

"'It was about a 2-mile, 4-wheeler ride in,' Kucera said. 'We had some guys drop us off, and we got up in our stands about 3:30 (p.m.).'"

"Kucera completed a hunter-education class just days before his 12th birthday in May. He took advantage of a state program that allows adults to transfer a bear kill tag to a youth hunter. His dad, Art, gave him the permit, which usually takes about six years to get in Zone A1."

"The Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Interim Committee supported BCI's long-standing request that it keep the fees it collects for hidden-gun permits - estimated at $650,000 this year - rather than passing the fees on to the general fund."

"The bureau projects the number of concealed weapon applicants will break a record 16,000 by the end of this year, shattering 2005's record 10,800 permits. Nearly six out of 10 of this year's applicants do not live in Utah." ...

"Some 400 new state laws created during the most recent legislative session took effect Thursday and 20 of them involve guns."

"Among the more notable is one new law that eliminates a two-hour class that once was required for renewing a concealed-weapon permit. The permit still must be renewed every five years."

"'It's good to get training, and I encourage it for everyone who has a firearm,' said Alan Korwin, the Scottsdale author of The Arizona Gun Owner's Guide. 'But to require you to take a government test to exercise your rights is contrary to the American way and just fundamentally wrong.'"

"Another new law makes walking into a hunter's gunfire the fault of the guy who gets shot, not the shooter." ...

"If there was a definitive statement on the Canadian psyche as it relates to the gun issue, it came from the prime minister in the aftermath of the Montreal shooting last week."

"Prime Minister Stephen Harper mused: 'How could such an individual get such an arsenal of weapons?' It’s a rhetorical question, asked by many Canadians who do not understand guns or existing gun laws. What they mean is why."

"... in the warm and fuzzy fantasy land of some folks, they want to believe that a gun registry and more laws will protect them from the Gills of this world. Gun laws don’t stop criminals and whackos. If someone is hellbent to kill, he will get his weapons on the street – all of the laws be damned." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both. — William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)
