... "While some, like CNN founder Ted Turner, see an increase in military suicides as 'good' because, as he told Piers Morgan (naturally), that will somehow pave the way for a more enlightened United Nations world policeman, people who are actually sane can debate on the effects of removing firearms from people committed to killing themselves, and the danger for abuse if government is allowed to essentially, by documenting such matters in its records, compile a list of active duty firearms owners, and in apparent contravention of funding proscriptions against such a database established by current law. That’s a discussion that needs to happen in the light, not behind closed doors." ...
 

Guns don’t kill people…the Brady Campaign Against Women does.

"According to Bob Costas (apparently a self appointed Svengali when it comes to guns) Javon Belcher and his girlfriend would still be alive if it weren’t for guns and America’s gun culture. As I touched on yesterday, pointing to professional wrestler Chris Benoit’s double murder suicide in which he strangled his wife, suffocated their child and hung himself with a weight machine cord, this is not a certainty. Gruesome, deadly and not a gun in sight."

"But let’s move away from Bob Costas’ ignorance and look at the many murders allowed to occur thanks to Sarah Brady and her zealous campaign against self defense. I find it ironic that Sarah Brady holds such misogynistic views and how she condones the murder of innocent women." ...

"Very great lengths, apparently."

"Seen in color, the 'thug' who might be, becomes a wounded young man. Shock and fear ring his eyes. ... Blood drips from his nose and his lip appears to be busted open. His nose appears to be freshly broken. Instead of being a white ghoul emerging from shadows, he is a wounded man sitting in a car after a life-changing, possibly life-destroying, event has happened. The ghoul has flesh and blood after all. He bleeds."

"From that color photo, taken in color at high resolution by law enforcement officers moments after the altercation, someone manufactured the grainy black and white photo and made the decision to hand that version, but not the full color version, over to Zimmerman’s defense. Who did that? ..." ...

"In much the same way that World War II got us out of the Depression, it is one of those things that is not wished for, yet the reality of it remains. One should not seek out war in order to bolster a country’s economy, nor should one wish for tragedy in order to bolster their position."

"But the question remains, does tragedy benefit the pro gun crowd or the gun control zealots?"...

"Back in early October, the 'Wiki Weapon' project, the work of the Defense Distributed group, received a fair amount of press. The goal of the project is to design a functioning firearm that can be manufactured entirely on a consumer grade 3-D printer. This design would then be made freely available on the internet, eventually rendering any notion of a "government monopoly on force" nothing more than an evil fantasy of tyranny enabling (and genocide enabling) forcible citizen disarmament advocates like the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence." ...

"According to Alan Korwin - Author of Gun Laws Of America http://gunlaws.com says, here it is, folks, and it is bad news. The framework for legislation is always laid, and the Democrats have the votes to pass anything they want to impose upon us. Korwin went on to say, they really do not believe you need anything more than a brick to defend your home and family. He wants you to look at the list and see how many you own. Remember, he said, it is registration, then confiscation. It has happened in the UK, in Australia, in Europe, in China, and what they have found is that for some reason the criminals do not turn in their weapons, but will know that you did." ...

"Being one of those folks who love to get books for Christmas, I naturally tend to GIVE books for Christmas."

"One I can strongly recommend is 'Practical Home Security” by Alex Haddox. I know Alex, and though his main foundation is as a martial arts instructor, I can tell you he knows his way around guns. This isn’t a gun book, though; it’s a common sense approach to home safety. An excellent gift for the people in your life who think the world is full of unicorns and moonbeams and butterflies, and don’t listen to your good advice about keeping their family safe ... You (and they) can listen to his good advice in snippets on his free podcast, here: The Practical Defense Podcast or on iTunes. The book can be ordered from Amazon." ...

"I'm a devoted revolver man. I think there is something really satisfying in the revolution of a cylinder as a hammer travels back. The clicks and pops and the internal mechanisms all fall into place speak to me. And there is no match for a good revolver's reliability."

"But the classic wheel guns have a hard time competing with the polymer semi-autos, or that's what we're led to believe. It is certainly true where I live, out in the sticks, at the northern end of the old south. My local gun store does a brisk business in the moderately priced automatics. They sell their fair share of snub-nosed revolvers, too, but the big revolvers tend to stack up, collect dust." ...

"A space alien visiting the United States would surely be perplexed."

"Here, anyone can own an assault weapon -- a killing machine -- but possessing a gram of marijuana -- a shriveled up plant -- carries a prison sentence. Applicants must pass a background check to work at McDonalds[sic], but not to buy firearms at a gun show or on Craigslist. Debates rage on about whether or not fetuses are people, while children's lives are tragically cut short by bullets every day. Many states force us to wear seatbelts, but do not require locks on guns. Suspected terrorists, who would not be allowed on a commercial plane can even buy lethal weapons from gun dealers without triggering an alarm" ...

It's a pity, because both guys seem like honorable men trying to do what they believe is the right thing." ...

Caught in a firestorm of controversy after the comments, Costas embarked on a whirlwind media tour to justify his half-baked opinion – appearing on MSNBC’s The Last Word yesterday and Morning Joe this morning, and sitting down with Fox News Channel’s O’Reilly Factor tonight. But a recent quote he gave to The Washington Post as part of his pride-fueled press junket has exposed Costas’ ignorance about the subject of gun control." ...

"Today’s arrest of Illinois State Sen. Donne Trotter by authorities at O’Hare International Airport for having a gun in his carry-on bag is a revealing look at the hypocrisy of anti-gunners, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said."

"According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Trotter was arrested at a security checkpoint early this morning. A candidate for the 2nd Congressional District seat vacated recently by Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., Trotter had a .25-caliber Beretta semiautomatic pistol in his bag. The Chicago Tribune said Trotter told police he worked late last night as a security guard and didn’t realize the pistol was in his bag." ...

"TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley, saying he feels safer carrying a gun, says the issue in the wake of the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shootings is domestic violence, not gun control."

"'There's never a reason to hit a woman, touch a woman, or obviously kill a woman,' Barkley tells USA TODAY Sports."

"'I hope people don't (overemphasize) the gun situation. I'm very sensitive to domestic violence because I have a daughter (23-year-old Christiana), and that's just one thing that I cannot accept in any shape or form whatsoever. It's just a crazy situation." ...

"Californians are buying more guns than ever."

"Those who keep the statistics don't speculate on why the numbers are spiking, but to enthusiasts on the ground, it's clear. Times are tough, and the future is uncertain, leaving people looking for an extra layer of security, said gun sellers and experts in the field. November's election brought heightened fears of impending regulation, spurring some buyers to bite the bullet and make purchases they might otherwise have put off."

"As of November, the FBI's [NICS] had run 981,798 background checks related to guns in California, beating out totals for previous years before 2012 is even over. The numbers jumped about 8 percent from last year, part of a steady increase since 2008." ...

"Chicago is about to set a new record for violence, according to the Chicago Tribune. In the first eleven months, homicides have risen from 398 a year ago to more than 480 at the end of November, with some predicting a new record of 500 before the end of the year."

"Some have blamed the weather, including Jeremy Gorner, the Chicago Tribune reporter, who said that they 'skyrocketed amid unseasonably warm weather,' while others say that the rate of homicide in the Windy City has actually declined recently thanks to 'gang audits' being conducted by Chicago police. Robert Tracy of CPD said 'I think we've done a very good job with that.'" ...
