Ted Nugent sings praises of gun ownership

After setting up targets on a makeshift shooting range, he hands me a semi-automatic rifle, similar to the one used by the gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary to kill 26 people.

AR stands for ArmaLite rifle not assault rifle, Nugent explains, blaming the shooter, not the gun itself. "It's not the weapons. The weapons had nothing to do with it. These weapons are in every pickup in Texas. People have to get past the hardware," says Nugent, pointing out that a pheasant shotgun in the wrong hands can be as deadly.

He can't seem to understand why people who disagree with him won't or can't see it that way.

How would a tyrannical leader of the United States impose strict new gun control on a resistant, well-armed citizenry without the approval of Congress and in spite of the constitutional prohibitions?

I’ll tell you how.

He would have the government buy up all the arms and ammo – leaving next-to nothing for local police departments and self-reliant citizens to fight over.
 

VA: 86-year-old woman grabs gun in self-defense

On Friday afternoon she was forced to do that. Howard said a young woman broke the glass on her door and forced her way inside.

"I was in shock. I didn't know what she was going to do to me!" Howard said.

Howard immediately grabbed her gun, but the two started to struggle down the hall.

"I already had my gun in my hand, and I wouldn't turn it loose for anything," she explained.

Howard's hands are proof she wasn't letting go.

"She stuck a fingernail in there," said Howard. "She moved her hands sort of released me a bit. I moved over like that, and I was going to shoot her in the stomach, but she took her knee and hit my elbow."

The bullet ended up inside the wall where it still hides.

New York's 'SAFE' Act: The 'Rape' of the Second Amendment

The SAFE Act is far worse than you might imagine. Harold "Budd" Schroeder, member of the NRA Board of Directors from New York, described the law as "the rape of our gun rights." That is no exaggeration. The law is as harsh as (or harsher than) the gun laws of some European nations that do not have a Bill or Rights or a Second Amendment.

The association’s list includes a note saying it was posted on Sept. 17, 2012, though it’s not clear when it was originally created. The page has a headline reading “National Organizations with Anti-Gun Policies.” Lower, it lists “Anti- Gun Individuals & Celebrities” and “Anti-Gun Corporations/Corporate Heads.”

Andrew Arulanandam, a spokesman, didn’t return phone calls or e-mails seeking comment about the list and its intended use.

The document has been around for decades, said Joe Tartaro, president of Bellevue, Washington-based Second Amendment Foundation, a pro-gun educational group. It was designed for gun owners to organize boycotts and facilitate their complaints, he said.
 

A phony pro-gun argument

First, women are far more likely to be the victims of gun violence than to benefit from using a gun in self-defense.

Second, the restrictions under discussion would not harm women. They would either make women safer or, at the very least, not impede their ability to use guns in self-defense.

On the threat that guns pose to women, consider: Women are far less likely to be the victims of gun violence than men. But they are far more likely than men to be killed by someone they know, generally a spouse or partner.

Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) is among those organizations working to make sure gun rights are secure. The new “pro-gun rights organization” partners with Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), Citizens Committee Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), CalGuns a California gun rights group, and the California Associations of Federal Firearms Licensees(CA-FFL), among other pro-gun organizations at the national and state level fight legislators trying to capitalize on the recent gun related deaths.

FPC’s main focus is to get young people involved in this issue, and it’s using social media to accomplish this goal. The group is focusing on Facebook and Twitter to get out their message to target their young demographic.

As you are aware, New Jersey already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, including a semi-automatic firearms ban and ammunition magazine capacity limits. The legislature’s latest attempt to further restrict magazine capacity from 15 to 5 rounds (A-3664) will do nothing to prevent another tragedy and everything to interfere with self-defense as it would effectively ban most self-defense guns.

If this bill becomes law, hundreds of thousands of law-abiding citizens would be treated as criminals for simply keeping a common weapon for self-defense.

In 2011, gun owners in the United States outnumbered hunters by 5 to 1.
There were 13.7 million hunters in the United States over age 16 -- 12.7 million of whom used rifles, shotguns or handguns for hunting, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
That means hunters constituted only 15.9 to 18.1 percent of the estimated 70-80 million gun owners in the U.S. in 2011 -- the latest year for which statistics are available.

The Arkansas House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday to allow concealed-carry permit holders to take their weapons into churches, and it is expected to be signed into law by the state's governor.
The Church Protection Act would allow individual places of worship to decide whether to allow concealed handguns and who could carry them. The Republican-controlled House passed the bill 85-8 with bipartisan support. The measure previously passed the Republican-controlled Senate 28-4.
Arkansas joins a handful of other states, including South Carolina, Wyoming and Louisiana, that allow guns in churches, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

It was so good, in fact, that he recently moved the business to its own location on 12 Mile Road in Southfield and plans to expand classes for Protection First CCW beyond the one-day, eight-hour course he currently teaches on Saturdays and Sundays (and some Tuesdays).

The American people are overwhelmingly frustrated by the federal government, with public trust in the institution near historic lows. To add to these troubling indicators, a new Pew Research Center study also finds that, for the first time, a majority of the U.S. public believes that the government threatens their “personal rights and freedoms.”

The National Conference of Democratic Mayors wants more gun control and they are frustrated that, because of gun owners like you who vote, they cannot achieve it through legislation.

So … they have a backup plan. They are going to use taxpayer dollars, in the form of contracts to supply law enforcement agencies, to threaten manufacturers who do not voluntarily enact their draconian proposals.

And they are not trying to hide their agenda. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, who leads the group, proudly announced the details of the plan after the NCDM meeting in January.

"Still, does that mean we can relax as far as Feinstein’s latest plot against our rights is concerned? Imagine as you’re reading this, right now, the TV playing in the background interrupts its regular program with breaking news of another mass shooting. It’s going to happen, you now, as long as maniac killers are guaranteed success and 'fame.' So now ask yourself if your representatives have demonstrated enough fidelity to their oaths to give you confidence that they’ll hold fast."

The former Marine and Iraq War veteran charged in the killings of a former Navy SEAL sniper and his friend on a Texas shooting range had been taken to a mental hospital twice in the past five months and told authorities he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, law enforcement records show.
Eddie Ray Routh, 25, also told his sister and brother-in-law after the shootings that he "traded his soul for a new truck," according to an Erath County arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA-TV. Police said Routh was driving the truck of one of the victims, former Navy SEAL and American Sniper co-author Chris Kyle, at the time of his arrest.
 

Hunters: The Founding Fathers Want A Word With You

In 1759, before the Declaration of Independence was conceived of, and before the American Revolution began, Benjamin Franklin made what would seem to be an obvious observation: “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”
Old Ben knew what he was talking about, I think: The right of human beings to self-defense with arms is inalienable, given by God. The point of the Second Amendment, as so clearly stated in numerous texts attributed to Founding Fathers like Ben Franklin, is to enable a peaceable citizenry to protect itself from tyranny and oppression.

MN: Obama says assault weapons ban deserves a vote In Congress

President Barack Obama pressed Congress on Monday to at least hold a vote on banning assault weapons, the most contentious part of his plan to curb gun violence in the United States.
Obama's comments suggested a realization in the White House that it will be difficult to get such a ban passed by lawmakers, despite consistent public support for the measure.
Opposition is high in Congress, including among some Democrats, and by calling simply for a vote, Obama seemed to acknowledge that even getting that far - let alone having an assault weapons ban approved - would be a struggle.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of men and women. — Thomas Paine, The Crisis, Intro. (Dec. 1776).
