Every day journalists have a responsibility to report the news. It’s not something that is taken lightly. Many stories are easy to put together, but sometimes there’s a lot of background work required — especially for in-depth reports — before the final product is produced. It’s a big responsibility. But sometimes you have to be just plain responsible.

The current debate about gun control is emotional, both locally and nationwide, but some area law-enforcement personnel say laws already in place are adequate. They argue that law-abiding citizens are not the problem and that a person who wants to commit a crime will find a way to do so regardless of laws.
 

How NRA’s true believers converted a marksmanship group into a mighty gun lobby

In gun lore it’s known as the Revolt at Cincinnati. On May 21, 1977, and into the morning of May 22, a rump caucus of gun rights radicals took over the annual meeting of the National Rifle Association.
The rebels wore orange-blaze hunting caps. They spoke on walkie-talkies as they worked the floor of the sweltering convention hall. They suspected that the NRA leaders had turned off the air-conditioning in hopes that the rabble-rousers would lose enthusiasm.
The Old Guard was caught by surprise. The NRA officers sat up front, on a dais, observing their demise. The organization, about a century old already, was thoroughly mainstream and bipartisan, focusing on hunting, conservation and marksmanship. It taught Boy Scouts how to shoot safely.

Sen. Joe Manchin: Stand-alone assault weapons ban ‘will not go anywhere’

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Sunday that a stand-alone ban on assault weapons would not win passage in Congress, and that the effort to curb mass shootings must include a broader discussion involving the entertainment industry and mental health issues.
“An assault weapons stand-alone ban on just guns alone, in the political reality we have, will not go anywhere. It has to be comprehensive,” Manchin said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Manchin, a conservative Democrat who has received high marks from the NRA, said in the wake of the mass shooting at a school in Newtown, Conn., that it was time for a new discussion about regulations on assault weapons.

Gun rights groups on Sunday forecast that bids to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips would fail in Congress, as Vice President Joe Biden prepares this week to give President Barack Obama proposals to curb gun violence.
Even some congressional Democrats indicated that a bill to revive the U.S. assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 would have a difficult time winning passage in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and Democratic-led Senate.

December 29, 2012 marked the 122nd Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms "for their own safety and protection". The slaughter began AFTER the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. When the final round had flown, of the 297 dead or dying, two thirds (200) were women and children.

A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty.

The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson's ideal of Rightful Liberty."

"Marxists, Socialists, Liberals and Establishment Republicans will likely find that life in our community is incompatible with their existing ideology and preferred lifestyles."

On its website, the National Rifle Association claims that it "is not affiliated with any firearm or ammunition manufacturers or with any businesses that deal in guns and ammunition." This is a lie, as a number of recent reports have documented.
In fact, the NRA is primarily a front group for the nation's gun manufacturers. But you wouldn't know it from reading the major media outlets.

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.

Why I Brought Piers Morgan That 'Little Book'

When I appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight to debate gun control on Thursday night, I came armed with a copy of the Constitution of the United States.
I did so for a very simple reason: for too long, the left has been getting away with the lie that they are pro-Second Amendment. Then they proceed to violate the most basic concept of the Second Amendment: that we have a right to keep and bear arms. It is fine to have a rational conversation about how to balance rights with the risk and rewards of particular firearm ownership. But that is not what the left does.

WASHINGTON — Full disclosure right upfront: I’m a proud life member of the National Rifle Association. I am on the NRA‘s board of directors and serve as chairman of the organization’s Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee. I have owned and used firearms most of my life, and I can read. Unlike some in Washington, I don’t believe that the 27 words above — the Second Amendment of our Constitution — have anything to do with “gun rights.” Guns don’t have rights. I do. So do you.

Someone tell Dianne Feinstein: For all the Democrats’ talk about passing another assault-weapons ban, that now appears unlikely to happen.

According to the New York Times, the administration’s prospects of pushing an assault-weapons ban through Congress are slim and, as a result, the White House “is focusing on other measures it deems more politically achievable.”

... There are over twenty-five million veterans in the United States ... and most of them are gun owners. ...
You would be surprised at what you can overhear at the VFW, or even the "early bird dinner," for that matter. Thanks to the "War on Terror," there are also many younger combat veterans, many from a lineage of soldiers. They know that old people can be stubborn, and "the government threw grandpa in jail because he didn't turn in his guns" will not go over well. As an older friend of mine whom I see at Denny's on occasion tells me, "I'm just sayin'."

I am the face of the American gun owner. I am not a monster. I do not want to shoot anyone. Even if you break into my home and threaten my family I do not want to shoot you. I will because you have forced me to, but it is not something I will relish.

Those who have never thought about this don’t realize that when you are forced to do this, you lose a bit of yourself also. Which do you think is more traumatic? Being a bad guy and aggressor, preying on others and eventually getting shot, or being an ordinary person, going about your average life, and suddenly being thrust into a situation where to preserve that ordinary life you are forced to take another.

With President Obama readying an overhaul of the nation’s gun laws, a liberal think tank with singular influence throughout his administration is pushing for a sweeping agenda of strict new restrictions on and federal oversight of gun and ammunition sales.
The Center for American Progress is recommending 13 new gun policies to the White House — some of them executive actions that would not require the approval of Congress — in what amounts to the progressive community’s wish list.

NY: Schumer: Retailers should suspend some gun sales

Senator Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.

Schumer on Sunday released a letter he sent to major retailers asking for a voluntary moratorium.

The New York Democrat says consumer demand for guns has gone up in the weeks since the December mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Schumer says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won't help if more of them have recently been sold.

President Barack Obama has made gun control a top priority. Vice President Joe Biden is expected to give him a comprehensive package of recommendations for curbing gun violence this week.

A White Plains residence pinpointed on a controversial handgun permit database was burglarized Saturday, and the burglars' target was the homeowner's gun safe. At least two burglars broke into a home on Davis Avenue at 9:30 p.m. Saturday but were unsuccessful in an attempt to open the safe, which contained legally owned weapons, according to a law enforcement source. One suspect was taken into custody, the source said. The gun owner was not home when the burglary occurred, the source said. The victim, who is in his 70s, told Newsday on Sunday that he did not want to comment while the police investigation continues.
