"Back when the Dems were pushing for a federal law mandating an FBI background check for anyone buying or selling a gun anywhere to anyone for any reason, the party of civilian disarmament attempted to portray the opposition as 'extremists' out of touch with 'most gun owners.' Before that, they tried to drive a wedge between 'gun nuts' with 'assault weapons' and 'hunters and sportsmen.' Or was that at the same time? Here’s an NRA-centric update on ye olde divide and conquer anti-gun agit prop from David Tigabu [above] at policymic.com . . ." ...

"The FBI today released more information on Aaron Alexis, the gunman in the Washington Navy Yard shooting, along with images of his cut-down Remington Model 870 pump-action shotgun and video footage of him in the hallway of a building where he murdered a dozen people more than a week ago."

"According to the FBI, Alexis bought the shotgun and ammunition two days before the shooting, as this column previously reported. He also reportedly bought a hacksaw at a hardware store with which he evidently cut off part of the barrel and the stock of the shotgun. He wrapped the cut buttstock with purple tape. ..." ...

Senate website gets 2nd Amendment wrong, critics say

"Does the Second Amendment guarantee an individual right to own guns?"

"The Supreme Court has ruled that it does. But you might be confused if you visit the official Senate web page on the Constitution, which says only: 'Whether this provision protects the individual's right to own firearms or whether it deals only with the collective right of the people to arm and maintain a militia has long been debated.'" ...

"Meanwhile, gun rights advocates panned the site's language."

"'Considering that this year the party in control of the United States Senate tried to ban many semi-automatic firearms and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, it does not surprise me that their website takes that position,' Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, said." ...

McMillan Group will retain their fiberglass stock business and, as we reported earlier, they recently made a splash with the creation of a firearms-friendly credit card processing service, McMillan Merchant Solutions. We’d guess that will stay with McMillan Group as well, but are trying to confirm that. No word yet as to the identity of the buyer. Stay tuned . . ." ...

"Front Sight touts its training standards to be above that of the military and law enforcement. They stress, however, that they are not a boot camp. And that’s probably why you’ll see kids and people in wheelchairs at their pistol ranges and diminutive, grey-haired little old ladies with ARs at the rifle ranges. I was lucky to get my whole family in on a lifetime Diamond membership through a childhood friend recently. So, I was eager to get to the 4-day Practical Rifle class just a week ago . . ." ...

And now . . . 'FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) – Authorities say a 2-day gun buyback program staged in central New Jersey last weekend netted 218 firearms. Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni says the weapons collected at a church in Asbury Park and the Rumson police department included 126 handguns, 39 shotguns, and 24 rifles. Among the assault weapons surrendered was a Colt AR-15, a Mossberg assault shotgun and a World War II-era Japanese bolt-action rifle. ...'" ...
 

Gun-hating and Constitution-hating: They just go together

"For years, those who would trample Americans' Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms attempted to justify their position by claiming that this right is not codified in the Constitution after all. The 'right of the people,' they argued, isn't really 'of the people' ... but is instead a 'right' of the . . . National Guard. And 'shall not be infringed' doesn't really mean that the government cannot infringe on the right at will."

"With the Supreme Court's rulings in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago having made the individual's right to keep and bear arms a settled point of Constitutional law, however, that position has become more and more untenable ..." ...

"Last week another national tragedy occurred at the Washington Navy Yard. Aaron Alexis shot and killed 12 civilians and injured eight others. The attack at the Navy Yard has brought up the debate on gun control yet again."

"On one side, there are the people who want all guns taken away from citizens. They argue that everyone would be safer if average Americans were not allowed to own guns."

"Opposing this side is a group that argues by taking away Americans’ guns, the government is infringing on the rights of American citizens. The Second Amendment clearly states that American citizens have the right to bear arms. But let’s think about what that really means."

"... Back in 1791, the guns were single-shot rifles or pistols ..." ...

"The question is simple and to the point, and many people today are asking it. Older voters would like to know so that they can vote responsibly in elections, and younger people are curious so that they might be able to serve their nation best when it comes to voting. Why should citizen be allowed to have guns? And if a citizen should be allowed to have a gun, then is it reasonable to have a magazine limit? Though the questions are simple, the answer is multifaceted." ...

Submitter's Note: I have some more simple questions for you:
Why should citizens be allowed to go to whatever church they wish?
Why should citizens be allowed to sit wherever they wish on a bus or at a lunch counter?
Why should citizens be allowed to speak freely? To assemble peaceably? To vote?

"U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has signed the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on behalf of the Obama Administration."

"The reach of the ATT goes well beyond anything we’ve ever seen from even the most radical gun-control groups. Regardless of whether the Senate ratifies the treaty, now that Secretary Kerry signed on the dotted line, the United States is obligated not to act 'contrary' to its terms – and the devil is in the details." ...

"The hypocrisy of the Barack Obama regime knows no bounds."

"Yesterday, Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty ..."

"Among other things, the treaty bars signatory countries from transferring conventional weapons if they violate arms embargoes or if they promote acts of genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes. ..."

"Even as Kerry was putting pen to paper, the CIA continued to transfer arms to al-Qaida and al-Nusra terrorists in Syria: two groups that have been raping, beheading and killing Christians; executing surrendered Syrian government troops; and beheading and shooting men, women and children they deem loyal to the Bashar Assad regime." ...

"While Washington was busy watching Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz bloviate ... Secretary of State John Kerry was in New York at the U.N. General Assembly signing the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, known as the ATT. This is a long overdue step for the U.S., joining a treaty meant to crack down on the international transfer of weapons to human rights abusers, criminals and terrorists."

"America, the top arms exporter in the world, was the 91st country to sign the treaty, which passed the U.N. overwhelmingly in April. But no measure having anything to do with stricter scrutiny of guns goes anywhere in the U.S. without the gun rights lobby becoming apoplectic. ..." ...

"Here's a headline from a story on blackamericaweb.com: 'Black community needs Obama's voice on urban gun violence.'"

"As a member of a bona fide black community, I take exception. The last thing the 'black community' needs is another liberal voice on urban gun violence. That goes for President Obama or any liberal's voice."

"Obama hails from Chicago, where an alleged gang member recently fired into a crowd at a basketball game and wounded 13 people."

"Now, we already know how Obama and other liberals will react to that shooting, don't we? They'll call for more gun control laws and even more restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens." ...

  • Among the felons, they had an average of four convictions each
