"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms has called out the White House and the gun control groups in a scathing press release that said, among other things, 'calling the gun prohibition lobby a 'gun safety' group is tantamount to suggesting that Ted Bundy was an advocate for battered women.'"

"CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb reacted to statements made yesterday by Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign, who told reporters covering his meeting with Vice President Joe Biden’s 'gun violence' task force that this 'is not a debate around the Second Amendment.'" ...

"The NRA had one—count it one—news conference following the sea-change spree killing at Sandy Hook. Once the Code Pink protesters got tossed, NRA Veep Wayne LaPierre tried and failed to communicate sympathy, resolve and a coherent plan of action. As expected, the media wailed on Wayne as an out-of-touch gun clinger. Mind you, that’s the PR side of the coin. Down in the trenches, The NRA has had great success with their lobbying campaigns. They’re the guys walking down the corridors of power making the pols pay attention to your Constitutionally protected right to keep and are bear arms. The issue I am seeing: the NRA is still in reactive mode . . ." ...

Yesterday, the Vice President and Attorney General Eric Holder met with what they referred to as 'gun safety groups' (even though the organizations in question are not qualified and do not teach gun safety, but rather, are committed gun prohibitionists) and 'victims and survivors.'"

"Likewise, today’s meeting will raise concerns about more than terminology. What gun rights activists will find especially troubling is the premise of the meeting, noting the Second Amendment has nothing to do with sports or wildlife, and particularly noting the disturbing origins of the premise that it does. ..." ...

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms is an extension of the natural right to self-defense and a hallmark of personal sovereignty. It is specifically insulated from governmental interference by the Constitution and has historically been the linchpin of resistance to tyranny. And yet, the progressives in both political parties stand ready to use the coercive power of the government to interfere with the exercise of that right by law-abiding persons because of the gross abuse of that right by some crazies in our midst." ...

"In the wake of December’s horrific mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Vice President Joe Biden is chairing a panel of experts that will make gun-control recommendations to President Barack Obama by the end of the month. The president has said that enacting new restrictions on guns will be one of his highest priorities."

"Yes, let’s start there. I mean, if we were heading up a campaign to stop gun murders and gun maiming, wouldn’t we do that?" ...

"This will probably come as a total shock to most of my Western readers, but at one point, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. This was, of course, when we were free under the Tsar. Weapons, from swords and spears to pistols, rifles and shotguns were everywhere, common items.

Rifle Ban Has Little to Do With Homicide

"While Sandy Hook Elementary gives the Obama administration emotional fuel to promote a gun ban, government data shows that civilian rifle ownership and murders with rifles have little in common."

"The following graphs resulted from collating data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice, and Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms. Between 1991 and 2011, civilian rifle ownership increased from an estimated 74 million to 112 million (51% growth). During that same period, the number of rifle homicide victims declined 57% (see graph below)." ...

It's hard to argue with the litany of facts in Prof. Lesser's analysis. He concludes his letter by stating that the issues of gun control 'should not die,' but ought not be determined by 'blind ideology.'"

"Vice President Joe Biden indicated Wednesday that the president will be able to take executive action to combat gun violence as he kicked off one of several meetings this week in response to the Newtown shooting."

"'We're here today to deal with a problem that requires immediate action, urgent action,' Biden said at the start of a meeting with leaders from gun control groups and several victims of gun violence."

"'The president is going to act. There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet, but we're compiling it all ... as well as legislative action, we believe, is required,' he said." ...

"The Obama administration is considering a $50 million plan to fund hundreds of police officers in public schools, a leading Democratic senator said, part of a broad gun violence agenda that is likely to include a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips and universal background checks."

"The school safety initiative would make federal dollars available to schools that want to hire police officers and install surveillance equipment, although it is not nearly as far-ranging as the National Rifle Association's proposal for armed guards in every U.S. school."

"The idea is gaining currency among some Democratic lawmakers, who see it as a potential area of common ground with Republicans who otherwise oppose stricter restrictions on firearms. ..." ...

"Barack Obama’s # 1 henchman, Joe Biden, has let it slip that Obama will consider moving forward to ban guns unilaterally using executive orders."

"Joe Biden, one of the chief authors of the Brady Bill who introduced it in the Senate, has been tapped by the self styled Emperor Obama to head up a task force on gun violence. The name of this task force is a misnomer though as it is not looking to deal with any type of solution toward actual gun violence. Rather, it is comprised of gun grabbers whose main objective is the banning of guns for law abiding people and the rewriting of the 2nd Amendment." ...

"At least two Republican members of the state Senate — members who form the lion’s share of the coalition that now controls the chamber — had some pretty negative reaction to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s gun control proposals, including a promise to make the state’s assault weapons ban 'the strongest in the nation.'"

"Cuomo explained his ban by noting that no one needs a semi-automatic assault rifle to kill a deer. And that no one needs a clip with more than 10 rounds to kill a deer." ...

"Washingtonians could face new rules for self defense, including a duty to retreat if possible, under a bill proposed in advance of this year's legislative session."

"The bill ... would make two changes to Washington's justifiable homicide law ... First, it would make deadly force only justifiable if a safe retreat were impossible. Second, it would remove language allowing homeowners to kill simply to defend their property. Instead ... killing would be legal only if the intruder posed an immediate physical threat to a person." ...

"Shapiro is the author of a new book, called 'Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans.' He did a very good job of working Morgan’s use of the Newtown dead into his thesis. Morgan didn’t like it at all. He also recoiled when Shapiro’s pocket copy of the Constitution came out, deriding it as 'your little book.' I believe Count Dracula once had a similar conversation with Abraham van Helsing." ...
