"The answer to the above question may soon be apparent. Starting even before the Obama/Biden 'plan' to reduce 'gun violence,' was announced Wednesday, several states have been scrambling to protect their people from the proposed oppressive new gun laws, and even imprison federal law enforcement officers who try to enforce those oppressions. Coalition to Stop Gun Violence executive director Josh Horwitz is not going to like this."

... "It's time to take the Second Amendment seriously. Government permission shouldn't be needed to exercise a fundamental right. The prohibition on the sale of new automatic weapons must be repealed. Import restrictions on arms and ammunition should be lifted."

"The common-sense solution to gun violence is to have more guns in the hands of responsible, law-abiding citizens and fewer in the hands of criminals. People who misuse firearms should be punished. There should be no 'gun free' zones. Keeping guns out of schools only makes them stalking grounds for psychopaths." ...

I would love a deer hunting rifle, a .22 with a magazine that holds about 50 rounds so I could have fun 'target' practicing instead of 'loading' practice. Honestly, I would like a handgun, but only just in case I visit Fresno, CA or downtown Memphis again; because I didn’t feel safe in those two places.

As they address the widespread concern over the private ownership of assault weapons with large capacity cartridge magazines and the ease with which dangerous persons ... can acquire firearms (including those with high capacity cartridge magazines) through gun shows and private sales, they define proposed legislation or Presidential Executive Orders as assaults on our Constitution." ...

A gun control group went to new lengths this week to target a moderate Democrat for his support from the National Rifle Association -- posting a video that intersperses clips from one of his campaign ads with coverage of the Connecticut school shooting, while selectively editing that ad to leave out key lines."

"The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence targeted Georgia Rep. John Barrow, dusting off and re-airing parts of a 2012 campaign ad that shows Barrow holding up his family's guns."

"Our governor (and probable future Democratic presidential candidate!) Martin O’Malley has announced a new set of gun bills to further his goal of complete civilian disarmament. The bills aren’t available yet, but the summary is [click here for the text]:"
  1. "Licensing for new handgun purchases"
