Is Private Gun Ownership a Conservative Affair?

"I spend waaaay too much time online. (If I spent as much time at the range as I do Facebook, I could qualify for Top Shot.) Anywho, I got into it recently with a couple of people of the far-Left persuasion, one of whom was from California. You know. The Home of Legislation Designed To Drive Gun Manufacturers Out of Business. Now I don’t mean to insult the Conservatives that live in the Golden State (yes, Virginia, there ARE Conservatives in California ...). But I've always wondered why the most vocal of Californians seem to be Hell-bent for leather to ban guns, ban oil, ban nuclear energy, fast food, and every other thing that makes America great. And I think I have an idea why, courtesy of a flame war on Facebook." ...

"If we fight, we would likely lose
For the foes are strong today
But no matter how bad the odds
A chance of success remains

If we don’t fight but submit
Trusting promises, bowing to threats
No chance remains anymore
We can’t win if we place no bets

So bet every shred of strength
And resist no matter the cost!
Those who try have a chance
Those who give up are lost" ...

"In response to an e-mail from a reader, Tom laid out the case against the National Rifle Association (NRA) from a libertarian perspective. There isn’t much he missed as far as it goes; for example, he noted th NRA’s position on Sen. Rand Paul’s amendment to the PATROT Act that would have secured the privacy of gun owners. However, I wanted to make a couple of other points."

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson Governor

"Some people think of shotguns as 'magic brooms.' You aim it in the general direction of a bad guy and 'sweep' your house clear of two-legged varmints. Without getting too technical about it, no. At bad breath distances, generally speaking, a shotgun ejects a softball-sized lead spread. While it's easier to hit a target that's three to five yards away with a softball than a marble, you can miss. Especially if you’re in life-threatening danger. And your target is moving around, quickly, trying to kill you. Still, why not a handheld shotgun? Why not the Smith & Wesson Governor?" ...

"Personally, my interpretation of the second amendment is that patriot founders wanted well-regulated militias run by Generals like George Washington to route the British. The Amendment never meant to support Benedict Arnold-splinter militia groups to put Patriot police in the cross-hairs of terrorists. Nor did early Patriots envision arming hostile crips with Saturday Night specials or rapid-fire machine guns. Thomas Jefferson did not envision the Capone gang, nor did Benjamin Franklin celebrate an Annual Valentine Massacres. Columbines do not appear to be part of the Federalist papers." ...

Submitter's Note: Unfortunately Jim has forgotten that in the pre-Revolution colonies, Washington, Jefferson, et al. were the "Benedict Arnold-splinter militia groups".

Are Police Cutbacks Leading to Increased Gun Ownership?

... "Which brings me to my main point: police cutbacks may be 'forcing' citizens to (once again) assume responsibility for their own self-defense. This trend could well be the 'hidden' dynamic underpinning the recent surge in concealed carry permits, support for the right to carry a concealed weapon and (of course) handgun sales."

"Thanks to a lawsuit by one Jim Archer, Providence has recently resumed issuing conceal carry permits—after a fifty-year hiatus. So far, the capitol city of a shall issue state has created 20 concealed carry permits. When that changes, a sea change it will be. All it will take is a few headline violent crimes." ...

Submitter's note: Is anyone else's blood boiling at how the so called women's groups refuse to encourage women to shoot the violent criminal with a GUN instead of a cell phone? The media feels that a violent and life damaging rapist caught on camera is somewhat good news here. We submit that this rape could have been prevented with a better tool than a camera.

KABA Note: A gun instead of a cell phone not only could have prevented this rape, but could have prevented many future rapes as well.

"There’s no real downside to home carry. Safety first. As long as you put your Home Carry gun in a safe when you’re showering or answering the call of nature, the weapon is always under your control. In terms of ergonomics, there are a huge number of gun and holster options that are comfortable and (if you wish) discreet. Second, Home Carry saves lives. While I don’t have a specific anecdote handy to back-up that premise, common sense may suffice. During a home invasion, an owner practicing Home Carry has a gun where and when they need it. No footrace to the safe. Alternatively, how about an example where the lack of a Home Carry weapon leads to tragedy . . ." ...

The report, 'Vision Zero: How Safer Streets In New York City Can Save Over 100 Lives A Year,' was issued on June 8th by the Drum Major Institute for Public Policy and Transportation Alternatives. Among other findings, the report notes that more New Yorkers were killed by traffic accidents than by guns between 2001 and 2009."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
