NY: New York State Rifle and Pistol Association targets Cuomo administration's push to beef up gun laws

New York's most powerful gun lobbying group is taking aim at Gov. Cuomo’s push to enact some of the strongest gun controls in the country. Thomas King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, said his organization will activate phone banks after Christmas asking gun owners to bombard Cuomo and legislators with phone calls and emails opposing new restrictions on firearms. "If I thought for a moment that by giving up my guns it would prevent things like the Newtown massacre, I would do it,” said King, citing the deadly rampage at a Connecticut school. “But I know that’s not true.”

The low level of compliance with registration laws gives a good idea of where many of the world’s illegal guns come from, but it isn’t the whole story. If people are keeping firearms in defiance of their governments’ wishes, they obviously want to own guns no matter what the powers-that-be intend. And as has proven true in so many cases, demand usually provides its own supply.
 

Thousands Sign US Petition to Deport Piers Morgan

Tens of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the U.S. over his gun control views.
Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting. Last week, he called a gun advocate appearing on his "Piers Morgan Tonight" show an "unbelievably stupid man."
Now, gun rights activists are fighting back. A petition created Dec. 21 on the White House e-petition website by a user in Texas accuses Morgan of engaging in a "hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution" by targeting the Second Amendment.

British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment.

If the phrase “well-regulated militia” in the Second Amendment means anything, they’re surely not guns that Americans need. They’re military weapons with no legitimate civilian uses; they’re cult objects, fetishes.

That's been a lonely point of view in recent weeks. But there's no reason journalists can't stay in the middle. Contrary to some assumptions, neither the NRA nor other Second Amendment advocates are pure evil. They even have some entirely reasonable points to make. And so do the advocates of greater controls on guns. If journalists could somehow control their emotions and their biases, there might be a far more reasoned debate in the press.

Guns do not kill people — people kill people.

Murder originates straight from the heart not from a weapon. From the heart comes the inspiration to kill, maim, torture, etc. In the heart is anger, hate, jealousy, greed, coveting and selfishness. Kind, honest and loving people don't let these things control them.
 

High court fight looms over right to carry a gun

The next big issue in the national debate over guns - whether people have a right to be armed in public - is moving closer to Supreme Court review.

A provocative ruling by a panel of federal appeals court judges in Chicago struck down the only statewide ban on carrying concealed weapons, in Illinois. The ruling is somewhat at odds with those of other federal courts that have largely upheld state and local gun laws, including restrictions on concealed weapons, since the Supreme Court's landmark ruling declaring that people have a right to have a gun for self-defense.

In the wake of the Connecticut elementary school massacre, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., already has vowed to introduce such a bill at the start of the session. President Obama is voicing support.
 

U.N. approves new debate on arms treaty opposed by U.S. gun lobby

(Reuters) - The U.N. General Assembly voted overwhelmingly on Monday to restart negotiations on a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global trade in conventional arms, a pact the powerful U.S. National Rifle Association has been lobbying hard against.

U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because U.S. President Barack Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney before the November 6 election if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge U.S. officials have denied.

And we have long set limits on the type of arms we are allowed to bear, thus establishing clearly that we have the Constitutional right to do that.

For example, we're not (individually) allowed to own aircraft carriers, tanks, ballistic nuclear missiles, fighter aircraft, or attack submarines.

Maine allows unloaded firearms to be carried openly in public.

Police began receiving calls about 11 a.m. and located the unidentified man carrying an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle along a popular recreation trail that loops around the city's Back Cove. The gun was fitted with a high-capacity magazine.

The man "identified himself as an open carry activist who was exercising his Second Amendment rights" under Maine law to openly carry an unloaded firearm in public, according to a police news release. Police said he was not violating any laws or ordinances.

Gun control advocates, following the NRA’s press conference on Friday, slammed the National Rifle Association’s response to the Newtown, Connecticut shooting. ...
Both Bloomberg and Cuomo come from the jurisdiction where major gun control legislation was established by New York State Democratic Senator Timothy “Big Tim” Sullivan. Sullivan became known as a Tammany Hall crook intent on protecting his mobsters from prosecution and disarming innocent civilians in New York State.

"'[T]he state ought to have a monopoly on legitimate violence,' Nadler continued, parroting a prime National Coalition to Ban Handguns talking point, which in itself relies on German sociologist Max Weber, whose support for amending the Weimar constitution abetted the establishment of emergency powers to bypass Reichstag consent, allowing Adolf Hitler's rise to unchallenged power.”

Press charges against David Gregory for possession of a 30-round, high capacity assault rifle magazine in Washington D.C

David Gregory is not above the law; he is a journalist, and must be held accountable to the same law as every other person.

(b) No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

More than 48,000 people have signed a petition that they posted on the White House website demanding that British CNN talk show host Piers Morgan be deported over comments he made on air about gun control. ...
Morgan, 47, a former newspaper editor in London, shot back at his critics on Twitter. He repeated his past calls for the United States to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and conduct background checks on all gun purchases.
Five days after the Connecticut massacre, Morgan called a guest, Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners for America, an "idiot," "dangerous" and an "unbelievably stupid man" when Pratt argued that more guns were needed to combat crime in the United States.

Case in point: The theory posed that had one of the teachers or principal been carrying a gun, the massacre would never have happened. Let’s look at that in a logical fashion, distancing ourselves from the emotion of Newtown. Handgun owners (some 6 million strong) represent a minority of gun owners, who in themselves represent a minority of Americans (44 million out of 312 million). That’s 1.9 percent of the population.

I support the Second Amendment, and I also support common sense. There is no legitimate hunting or self-defense purpose for anyone to need a 33-bullet magazine. I am encouraged that there appears to be a bipartisan effort in Congress, including among some NRA members, to enact a ban on extended-capacity ammunition magazines - like the bill I introduced in Arizona in 2011. We need uniform national regulations, not a patchwork of laws in individual states that might lead to smuggling.

The recent carnage of slaughter in the Sandy Hook massacre is overwhelming evidence that gun-control laws do not work. Additionally, the practice of herding defenseless victims into locked-down, gun-free killing zones only works for the killers among us. These laws should immediately be revoked.

An article in the Washington Post, after giving readers details about the deadly Christmas Eve violence and the convicted killer’s brutal background, tells us simply that “(c)onvicted felons are not allowed to possess weapons.”

And yet if it were that simple, the killer would not have possessed the weapons he used to kill two men on Christmas Eve. If it were that simple, these firefighters would still be alive, the NRA would support at least some gun control measures, and the oft-repeated pro-gun mantra about only outlaws having guns if guns were outlawed would not retain the ring of truth that it does – even to those of us who wish it didn’t.

At least one city councilor is poised to ask legislators to change state law so that cities and towns can enact local gun laws that are stricter than state statutes, which allow people to carry firearms openly, with few restrictions.

City Councilor Edward Suslovic, who leads the council's Public Safety, Health and Human Services Committee, plans to ask Portland's legislative delegation to submit a bill that would allow the city to ban guns from public buildings such as City Hall.
