... "Changing that dynamic does not appear likely, due in no small part to a virtual media blackout on the story, with the exception of limited reach niche readership efforts like this column and Tea Party Patriots of Luna County (which has done exceptional work fleshing out the details and back story of the case). Add to that a predisposition of gun owners, at least those who have even heard about this case, to talk about it but not really do much else, especially when it comes to informing their friends and adding a few dollars to the defense fund now and then." ...

... "As the title suggests, this is not a book about defensive gun uses. Rather, it’s a series of lessons, and that word is truly appropriate, where Walters relates dangerous situations that actual people found themselves in, leaving Pincus with the task of assessing what could have or should have happened had they made different choices." ...
 

Gun show 'prohibited person' arrests expose 'easily dodged background check' lie

"Anyone who has followed the gun rights/'gun control' debate for even a short time has heard the gun prohibition lobby's incessant yammering about the mythical "gun show loophole," and more recently, the outright lie that '40% of gun sales occur without a background check.' That last has been repeatedly uttered by nearly every forcible citizen disarmament jihadist in America, from Obama on down, despite even the rabidly anti-gun, pro-Obama Washington Post giving that claim 'three Pinocchios' for brazen mendacity.

"Those claiming that 'gun violence' is exacerbated by easily avoided background checks, particularly at gun shows, now have a new problem, this one coming from Virginia. ..." ...

"'Another arrest has put Orlando International in the lead for the number of guns seized at Florida airports, perhaps boosting police hopes for signs warning OIA travelers against bringing loaded weapons into the terminal,' orlandosentinel.com reports. 'A loaded pistol confiscated Thursday from a Texan broke Orlando’s tie with Tampa International Airport for statewide bragging, or blushing, rights, for a total of 29 handguns so far this year.” That still puts Orlando one behind Salt Lake City, who found their 30th gun last Tuesday, packed in the carryon of a man going to Vegas, baby! ...

"The CCW class that I took several years ago was expertly delivered and covered basics of safe firearm handling along with legal ramifications, but that was about it. I left entirely unprepared to use my concealed carry weapon effectively. It was not the instructor’s fault. In fact, he repeatedly cautioned us that simply because we have a license to carry a weapon does not mean we have the training necessary to carry it effectively. I must say his warning fell on deaf ears at the time and I figured it was just a sales pitch ... I went on my merry way thinking to myself, 'I’ve got this, no problem. I’m a member of a local gun club and I have become pretty good at poking holes in paper at various distances. I’m ok. I’m ready. I can do this.' Wrong, wrong wrong . . ." ...

"I presently have three handgun safes. One in the bedroom, one in the living room (furthest from the front door) and one next to my desk in my home office. I only sleep in my bedroom for about 6-9 hours and usually go to bed between 1 and 2 am. I am in home office from about 8 am until 8 pm. At 8 pm I am in the living room until about 10 or 11 pm. After that I am back in my home office until I go to sleep. As you can see, I spend the majority of my time in my home office. However, I have three home defense guns that are constantly being rotated from room to room because I cannot make up my mind which gun is best for which location. ..." ...

"I know. You’re shocked. How could a progressive superstar possibly be a hypocrite on gun control? I mean, other than the whole armed guards thing. Well, here ya go. 'I think the best response to the use of poison gas by President Bashar al-Assad is not a cruise missile attack on Assad’s forces, but an increase in the training and arming of the Free Syrian Army — including the antitank and antiaircraft weapons it’s long sought.' That would be flat earther Thomas L. Friedman writing in this morning’s New York Times under the headline Arm and Shame. The same Tommy Boy who wrote . . ." ...

"For many years, the gun ban lobby has portrayed the National Rifle Association as the big money bully in the gun control debate, but stories published today and yesterday suggest that the real big spender is anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has dumped a wad of cash into thwarting a Colorado recall election in defense of two Democrats who could get the boot for backing that state’s new gun control laws." ...

"There was another school shooting recently, near Atlanta, and this one was relatively benign. The gunman walked into an elementary school, told employees to call the police, fired five or six rounds from his assault rifle, and surrendered. Yawn. It’s a hiccup in the news cycle."

"Of course, the NRA repeatedly assures us, with their perky charm—Wayne LaPierre never fails to remind me of Hermione Granger—that if some teacher had been armed, he (or she) could have taken the shooter out. Or he could’ve generated a lively crossfire that would’ve killed some children instead of having them emerge, physically, at least, unharmed." ...

"We always like to say that guns are the great equalizer. They allow people like the elderly to level the playing field against younger, stronger assailants."

"That is exactly what happened in this case."

"Mabel Fletcher, 64-year-old disabled woman living in Ohio said she got her concealed weapons permit and a 9mm Glock handgun back in June for self defense."

"Fletcher was awakened by her dog when someone broke into her home last night."

"A young woman high on a cocktail of drugs had broken into the home. ..."

"Fletcher fired three rounds in self defense and at one point the suspect even feigned being shot, but lunged at Fletcher when she got too close. That’s when Fletcher fired the last shot that finally scared the intruder off." ...

"Somewhere, everyday in the USA, 2100+ people use a gun for self defense, to stop a crime or save the lives of themselves or their family."

"'We believe that the American public deserve to understand that on the average, guns save 2,191 lives and are used to thwart crimes every day,' says Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation"

"Most times you won’t see these tales on the news as it does not fit the main stream media’s story line of 'Guns and Gun Owners are Bad'."

What’s happening in Colorado right now is infuriating."

"After the tragedies in Newtown and Aurora, Colorado legislators passed landmark gun safety legislation, including background checks and magazine size limits."

"Two of the leaders of that effort – State Senators John Morse and Angela Giron – are now the targets of the first ever recall elections in Colorado. The NRA was unwilling to wait even until the next election to try to remove these two brave legislators from office as punishment for supporting commonsense gun reform legislation . . ." ...

"Out: The boy who cried wolf. In: The girl who cried birth control. Desperate Democrats are imposing false-alarm feminist politics on a high-stakes recall election in Colorado this month. It's a golden opportunity for independent-minded women to reject empty femme-a-goguery and tear up the Sandra Fluke card."

"On Sept. 10, Colorado Springs and Pueblo will decide whether to boot two top state Democrats ... over their support for radical gun- and ammo-control measures spearheaded by outside special interests. Left-wing billionaires Michael Bloomberg of New York City and Eli Broad of Detroit have poured $700,000 between them into defending the endangered Colorado Democrats." ...

"THE FOCUS of Pueblo’s Senate District 3 recall against state Sen. Angela Giron is her voting record — and not just her support for gun-control legislation that triggered the election in the first place."

"The Pueblo Democrat’s votes for a package of gun-control bills prompted advocates for the Second Amendment right to bear arms to petition for her recall. Certainly, people of good will can and often do differ on gun control versus the Second Amendment."

"Beyond that, let’s take a dispassionate look at Sen. Giron’s record on other issues and their impact on Southern Colorado and other rural areas of the state." ...

"The court distinguished District of Colombia v. Heller (2008) 554 U.S. 570, which held that there is an individual right to 'use arms in defense of hearth and home' under the Second Amendment.

"Mexican prosecutors say they are looking into claims that a woman who killed two bus drivers last week in this northern border city was seeking revenge for alleged sexual abuse of female passengers."

"The claims made over the weekend in an email from the self-styled 'bus driver hunter' echoed deeply in Ciudad Juarez, which has a grim history of sexual violence against women aboard buses."

"A woman wearing a blond wig — or dyed hair — boarded one of the school bus-style vehicles that serve as transport in Ciudad Juarez on Wednesday morning. She approached the driver, took out a pistol, shot him in the head and left the bus. The next day, apparently the same woman did exactly the same thing to another driver on the same route." ...
