... "One man has done this, and people are noticing. Aside from an attitude among panicky enforcers that appears to regard public safety as an expendable inconvenience when they perceive a real or imagined threat to themselves, people are noticing how much illusion and presumptions have to do with state power. For many, it is a 'Behold, a god who bleeds' moment." ...

"It's official. The Dept. of Homeland Security, under Janet Napolitano, has put forth a "Personal Defense Weapon Solicitation" to purchase 7000 rifles chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO. (source: www.fbo.gov) This is an official solicitation that they are accepting bids from manufactures/suppliers. While that story in and of itself is a bit incredulous given the current administration's stance against so-called "assault weapons", the big question on my mind is, will any U.S. firearms manufacturer dare to step up and bid on this contract?"

"This query is particularly poignant as orders for Stoner-based rifles are back-ordered months or even years" ...

"I'm not your typical NRA member.

Also unusual, I joined the NRA in the days after the Sandy Hook, Connecticut tragedy."

"Lost amidst the clamor for universal back ground checks are a lot of important details. One of those details, besides the issues of who will pay for universal background checks, and how will such checks be precluded from turning into a registration scheme, is the fact that simply making firearm background checks “universal” would have to effect of denying the right of 18-20 year olds to own a handgun, even in their home." ...

... "That is what it says in the copy that is in the National Archives in Washington, D.C. But what was the real meaning and intent of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution? What did the framers of the Constitution meeting in 1787 in Philadelphia really mean by this amendment? And if we believe in sane gun safety regulations, what do we do and say now?"

"After fighting off the largest and most powerful military empire on Earth at the time, I am sure that the Founders and Framers where leery of both having a large standing army and being prepared if the British or someone else came to take power away from us. ..." ...
 

How the post-Sandy Hook gun control push spectacularly backfired in America
Submitted by: Greg

"In the aftermath of the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, the gun grabbers across America unleashed a full court press to try to wholly disarm American citizens. With the help of the incessantly anti-gun mainstream media, people like Biden, Bloomberg, Cuomo, Feinstein and Obama managed to stir up a frenzy of fabricated fear that promised all our children would be violently gunned down if we didn't immediately agree to turn in all our guns and ammo magazines."

"The push for gun control, however, has spectacularly backfired. In reality, it has hardened the positions of gun rights advocates while massively increasing the number of AR-15s and other firearms sold across the country." ...

Somebody disturbed enough to strut around with an assault weapon could just as easily be disturbed enough to use it. How are we supposed to differentiate, and why should we have to?" ...

If 'assault weapon' ban fails, 'bump fire' stocks may be consolation prize

"According to the 'conventional wisdom' (an admittedly dubious term), a new federal ban of so-called 'assault weapons' is unlikely in the near future--with Slate magazine going so far as to call its demise 'inevitable.' The Huffington Post argues that this was the plan all along, with the ban being a sort of sacrificial lamb to be martyred for the real goal of banning private sales. Chris Knox, of the Firearms Coalition, offers perhaps the most useful characterization of the gun prohibitionists' strategy, referring to Senator Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) 'assault weapon' ban bill as a kind of 'rope-a-dope' gambit." ...

"Such a ban became a rallying cry for victims' families, advocacy groups and politicians supporting tougher gun laws in the emotional aftermath ..."

"President Barack Obama still calls for updating a 1994 assault weapons ban that expired 10 years later as part of his package of steps intended to reduce chronic gun violence in America, especially in major cities."

"However, fierce opposition by the powerful [NRA] and millions of American gun owners has shifted debate away from prohibiting specific weapons to making it harder for criminals, terrorists and the mentally ill to obtain guns." ...
