"SPLC is spreading not only a damnable and insulting lie, but actually creating a dangerous environment, one that chills free speech and political activism. If that doesn't qualify for the term 'un-American,' nothing does."

"A private activist organization apparently is picking up where the federal government left off when the Department of Homeland Security issued its ... warning that returning veterans and people in a long list of other categories were potential terrorists."

"Only the new warning, delivered recently to police officers, sheriffs and other law enforcement personnel across the country, is lumping those dedicated to the constitutional principles on which the nation was founded together with crazed killers." ...

"Garbage, says a supporter of the individual rights of gun ownership contained in the Second Amendment."

"Home computers and the Internet have become a potent pair of eyes and ears for inquiring minds."

"The information available is mind-boggling. And the downside is trying to establish where the information came from — and why. There’s a lot of garbage floating around out there. If you're a hunter and you have a computer, it's doubtful you've missed the current e-mail warning us that 'Now 'all guns’ must be listed on your next [2010] tax return!'" ...

"Cleveland Gun Rights Examiner Daniel White pulls no punches in his Sept. 14 column on examiner.com: 'Dave Stancliff is a columnist for The Times-Standard. He is a former newspaper editor and publisher,' White writes. 'He is also an idiot.'"

"White proceeds to dissect Stancliff's sloppy recount of the same, tired, and false liberal rant about 'scare tactics,' 'fear,' 'lies,' 'rumors,' and, of course, this hate-mongering diaribe: 'Racists across the country are loading up on guns and ammunition like Armageddon is around the corner. Hate groups are gaining record memberships because Obama is black. That should raise some alarm. These nuts are arming themselves in record numbers.'" ...
 

Utah appeals court rules typo on gun purchase form not a crime

"Gun rights advocates object to gun registration as offensive to the Second Amendment and a slippery slope toward gun confiscation, as happened in New York City and California in the late 20th century. But a Utah appeals court ruling on September 24, 2009 (quashing a hyper-zealous criminal prosecution of Kidus Yohannes, a legally present immigrant alien who made a mistake on a gun purchase form ...) highlights the danger of decentralized gun registration through gun dealer transfer records."

"The Utah man's crime? The alien registration number that Mr. Yohannes 'provided on the form was an application number given to Yohannes by immigration officials when he applied to change his status ...' and not his ... alien registration number." ...

"The appearance of right-wing mobs at town meetings organized by Democratic Party representatives to discuss the proposed health-care reform has set off alarm bells ..." ...

"... On July 16, the Huffington Post reported: 'Catherine Crabill, the Republican Party's nominee for Virginia’s 99th District in the House of Delegates, gave a speech at a recent Tea Party event suggesting that Second Amendment rights could be used to defend the anti-tax movement. ..."

"'We have the chance to fight this battle at the ballot box before we have to resort to the bullet box,' Crabill said. 'That's the beauty of our Second Amendment rights ... Our Second Amendment rights were to guard against tyranny.' ..." ...

Mayors group wants to make it harder for criminals to get guns

"Here’s a simple idea: You can be for the rights of law-abiding gun owners but also for common-sense policies to keep guns out of the hands of criminals."

"That idea has brought together a bipartisan group of more than 400 mayors from all over the country as the Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition. I'm a veteran, a gun owner, a hunter and a member of the [NRA] — and I'm the mayor of Hurst and a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns."

"Unfortunately, the NRA has spent the past month attempting to bully mayors, including me, to drop out of this effort to have a consensus discussion about guns. They have sent hundreds of thousands of misleading postcards stating this coalition is 'anti-gun' ..." ...

"My appreciation to the advocates of Concealed Carry On Campus for their involvement in the Virginia Tech Violence Prevention debate this week. I have some remarks I hope you will find helpful."

"People grieve differently. Some undergo a working through process, while others stagnate and seem to be locked in time, locked into one single stage of the grieving process. For their sake, they need to move on, which means to complete the process. Move on does not mean to drop it, it means to get to the next stage of the process, to walk through the end of the tunnel for a return to health. You also move on for the sake of the rest of the country." ...

"In my last edition, I wrote how the grieving process is a seven stage working through process, and how some can inappropriately convert their anger into something meaningful to them as mistakenly therapeutic. The error comes from dwelling in the anger stage of the working through process and operating on anger instead of beginning activism once one emerges from the end of the process. Anger at the injustice can be a very wrong motivator as it begets wrong solutions. It's not always the right way to begin."

"Stop being an anger-based political movement of anti-liberty and become an angry movement against crime, and you will make a difference, a much bigger difference. ..." ...

"Naples Mayor Bill Barnett expected a hard recoil when he joined Mayors Against Illegal Guns, but the fusillade of angry mail and phone calls startled him."

"'We've been absolutely bombed with protest,' he said. 'I'm not a radical and I don't get involved in a lot of causes, but I joined this group because it seems like a reasonable organization.'"

"The National Rifle Association has taken aim at the coalition of some 450 mayors -- 45 of them in Florida -- alerting gun owners that the group will lobby Congress to end 'reciprocity' among states that issue concealed-weapons permits, tighten restrictions on sales at weekend gun shows and weaken privacy protections for gun owners." ...

"New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's agenda includes trying to do away with Second Amendment rights."

"It won't happen."

"The National Rifle Association has more than 4 million members and 65 percent of Americans believe that the constitutional right to keep and bear arms also protects against infringements by state and local governments."

"The same broad support is seen in recent enactment of stand-your-ground and castle doctrine laws. It well may explain how citizens voted with their wallets in the stampede to purchase firearms and ammunition after the past election." ...

From Dr. Sanity via New Paltz Journal comes another look into the Mighty Kenyan's psyche; essential graf:

***
...All the world's his stage now--a stage he can use to act out those malignantly narcissistic defects manifested in his cold grandiosity and in his "selfless" devotion to pursuing what the left insists on calling "social justice"; but which in the cold light of reality always turns out to be the pursuit of power over others...

"Currently, passengers who choose to travel by passenger rail in the United States cannot transport a firearm in checked baggage as they can on airlines."

"While the dismal economic picture in America hasn't caused 'bank runs' wherein customers demand to withdraw their savings from banks across the country ... gun owners are causing a run of their own: a national 'gun shop run' for ammunition."

"Ammunition manufacturers report their factories are producing ammunition at record rates and keeping their facilities operating 24/7. Yet, they still cannot keep up with the demand for bullets for everything from handguns to hunting rifles."

"Gun store owners and manufacturers claim this is the first time they have ever seen such a drastic shortage in ammunition. According to gun rights activists and enthusiasts, ammunition is a scarce commodity and has been getting scarcer this year." ...

"A VICIOUS thug is captured on CCTV stabbing a helpless victim five times on a bus in broad daylight."

"Shocked passengers on the packed double-decker watched in horror as Marcus Ball pulled a knife on an unarmed man."

"Ball, 22, savagely stabbed Derek Spaulding repeatedly after a trivial row."

"The attacker fled, leaving Mr Spaulding bleeding heavily from five wounds." ...

"Ball, from Streatham, said he was carrying the knife for protection. Passing sentence the judge said: 'If knives are carried, the danger is they will be used and if they are used this is exactly the kind of case that results.'" ...

Submitter's Note: No, this is what happens when thugs (unlawfully) carry knives. The law-abiding don't do this sort of thing.
 

 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)
