"The leader of the nation’s oldest gun rights legal foundation is concerned hate speech in the media will encourage violence against gun owners."

"Statements made by broadcasters including CNN’s Piers Morgan and MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, as well as comments on social media have contributed to an environment of hate directed against law-abiding Americans who are being demonized for a crime they did not commit, said Joseph P. Tartaro, the president of the Bellevue, Wash.-based Second Amendment Foundation." ...

... "An interesting fact somewhat buried is that when you combine the number of people who said a solution would be 'very effective' and 'somewhat effective', more people favored 'arming at least one school official' over 'banning the sale of semi-automatic weapons' by 64 to 63. Although the result is within the margin of error, it indicates that neither media nor political pressure on the gun control issue have made it overwhelmingly popular as a solution with citizens."

Threat to private gun sales might be greater than threat to 'assault weapons'

... "Private sales--the so-called 'gun show loophole,' despite the fact that even anti-gun groups are no longer trying to hide the fact that they want to ban all private sales, whether at gun shows or not--might be a different story. The guns used in the Connecticut school massacre were not purchased at a gun show, and certainly not purchased without a background check (and the purchaser, Nancy Lanza, would apparently have been very unlikely to be found 'unsuitable' to purchase firearms even under the ever more restrictive and intrusive background checks pushed by anti-gun fanatics)." ...

"Either employing long-term wisdom or momentary political acumen, President Barack Obama was right last week not to mix up an overwhelming feeling of grief and mourning over the Newtown tragedy with the classic debate about gun control. Still, the question has been raised by pundits like Jeffrey Sachs and political leaders like Dianne Feinstein, and will inevitably be raised again and again: since massacres happen, and are usually perpetrated with firearms, is it not reasonable to repeal the Second Amendment, or at least to interpret it in the most restrictive way?" ...

"Turns out words do hurt you. Especially if you are the Second Amendment Foundation in Bellevue."

"The gun rights group sounded the alarm Thursday that angry words over guns could lead to hate speech, then hate crimes."

"Turns out, many people were quite upset that 20 first-graders were slaughtered in Connecticut."

"The foundation says broadcasters — it singles out Piers Morgan and Christ Matthews — and social media have contributed to 'an environment of hate directed against law-abiding Americans who are demonized for a crime they did not commit.'" ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some of the worst abuses of government force in recent years were precipitated by technical and victimless gun-law violations. For example, the BATF claimed that the Branch Davidians possessed machine guns without paying the required federal tax and filling in the proper registration forms. So a tax case worth less than $10,000 led to a 76-man helicopter, machine gun, and grenade assault on a home in which 2/3 of the occupants were women and children. — Dave Kopel and Dr. Michael S. Brown, Prohibition Fever, NationalReview.com
