"The gray man will smile when the police come to his door to collect his firearms. He’ll happily hand over his registered weapons at the door and thank the officers for their work, while his cache of unregistered weapons is safely hidden away."

"He'll be first in line to receive his sub-dermal ID chip, and will smile as it is implanted. He'll then return home and remove it himself ... He'll carry the chip under his sleeve or inside his watch so as to blend in with society, until such time as he wishes not to be seen or tracked." ...

"While millions of Americans rejoiced Tuesday ... others feared the demise of one of our basic rights — the Second Amendment. Gun sales nationwide rose following the election and inauguration of President Barack Obama, and they show no sign of stopping. Many gun stores named Obama their salesman of the year, and sheriff’s departments have seen an increase in weapons permit applications since November. Gun rights advocates claim Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress will take action to restrict their ability to purchase, own and use firearms. Some even believe their guns will be taken away altogether."

"Such fear mongering goes to show the politics of panic and jumping to conclusions are still alive and well in America." ...

The campus alert system announced the incident long after it was a completed act, taking fifteen minutes to complete the student body list of cell-phone recipients."

"One of the best kept secrets in the anti-violence movement is to tone down - obfuscate - details of the incident. It takes a little curiosity and a little searching to discover how brutal this killing was on campus, a gun free-zone. Some reports say that the victim was stabbed. Others more graphically describe a complete decapitation. In a gun free zone. ..." ...
 

Mayor Slay, guns, and 'microstamping'

... "As a crime fighting tool, microstamping offers very little potential. It can be defeated by measures as simple as replacing the firing pin ... and using steel cased ammo ... or by simply policing one's fired brass at the crime scene. Also, even if legibly stamped cartridge cases are found, the gun can only be tracked back to its last known purchaser. This means, of course, that the next step will be requiring registration of all gun firearms (sound familiar?)."

"Microstamping is not a strategy for 'crime fighting'--it's a strategy for citizen disarmament--slow and 'reasonable' (according to its supporters) disarmament, but disarmament nonetheless. As such, it is hardly surprising that Mayor Slay so enthusiastically endorses it." ...

"'We have been disappointed by Representative Kirsten Gillibrand's record on preventing gun violence during her one term in Congress. For example, she supported legislation that would have weakened efforts to fight illegal gun trafficking. We are hopeful, however, that as a United States Senator representing the entire state of New York she will follow the example of Senator Charles Schumer and former Senator Clinton and work with us to make it harder for dangerous people to get dangerous weapons in this country.'" ...

With the 20th Congressional District's Kirsten Gillibrand appointed to the U.S. Senate by Governor Patterson, the choice for her replacement is clear: Assembly Republican Leader Jim Tedisco is the only candidate with a proven record of protecting Second Amendment Constitutional freedoms. Jim Tedisco has been a true friend to hunters and gun owners, as he understands the crucial importance of safeguarding the right to bear arms. His voting record and vocal, public support for the Second Amendment have been clear, consistent and genuinely appreciated by gun owners and our association. I am proudly endorsing Jim Tedisco for the 20th Congressional District, where he will be a strong voice for protecting the Second Amendment.

At a marathon hearing Thursday, backers and opponents of a bill to expand gun rights in Montana painted distinctly different pictures of the state and its gun laws...
If passed, the bill would, among other things:

allow people to carry a concealed weapon without a permit;

greatly strengthen self-defense protections in the state;

allow people to display their gun to deter an attack;

allow people to use a gun whenever at risk of physical harm;

and, in shooting incidents in which the person who fired the gun claimed self defense, require the state to prove that it was not.

More than 20 people lined up to support the bill, including a representative from the National Rifle Association and private citizens...
