SAF Reacts to New Jersey Response in Right-To-Carry Lawsuit
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"The New Jersey Attorney General's motion to dismiss a recently-filed Second Amendment Foundation lawsuit against the state's subjective handgun carry laws was 'predictable and disappointing,' SAF said today." ...

"The Attorney General's brief asserted, 'When a handgun is carried in public, the serious risks and dangers of misuse and accidental use are borne by the public.'"

"'That is a pretty lame argument,' said SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. 'Considering that there are more than 6.2 million law-abiding citizens licensed to carry in 48 states ... New Jersey's position on this issue simply defies common sense.'" ...

"Yesterday's announcement that Seattle-based Starbucks' fourth-quarter 2010 earnings were up again – as reported in this morning's Seattle Times – is evidently driving gun prohibitionists nuts."

"Why else would Chicago-based anti-gunner Elliot N. Fineman make the absolutely crazy public demand that Starbucks donate $10 million annually to the gun prohibition lobby and change its policy of catering to legally-armed private citizens? Fineman, like the Brady Campaign and Washington CeaseFire before him, is promoting a boycott of Starbucks until the coffee giant hands over the money."

"Newsweek, whose online reach has plunged 29 percent in the last three months, has an interesting characterization of one provision of the Bill of Rights. A Daniel Stone article entitled 'White House to Push Gun Control' says: 'An administration official says Obama didn’t mention guns in his speech because of the omnipresent controversy surrounding the Second Amendment and gun control.' When has there been an 'omnipresent controversy' about the Second Amendment? Sure, there is controversy about gun control because the vast majority of Americans oppose it. But the crafting of prose, and positioning of words, especially among such esteemed 'professionals' at Newsweek, is probably intentional." ...

... "The Second Amendment gives[sic] the citizenry and the now 50 states the right to form a well-regulated militia as well as the right to bear arms. This was to protect against federal government intervention/takeover. The right to self-protection against criminals is a continuing side benefit. A population that has minimum means to resist often leads to governments that we currently see in Iran, North Korea, China, Cuba, etc." ...

Review: Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 Semi-Auto Pistol

... "A handgun not firing when needed is one of my biggest fears – so I’ve worked out several strikes using the handgun as a blunt force weapon. Even a small handgun like the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 can be effectively used to strike the vulnerable points of the human body, while providing a harder striking surface and less risk of damaging your hands. A punch to the eye socket with the tip of the barrel would likely cause more damage and be more prone to stopping the attack than a punch with a closed fist with the same force to the same area…" ...

... "We recognize and support the Second Amendment and the right of lawful self-defense. But rights must balance against each other, and a 33-round clip is far beyond the firepower necessary for self-defense. The community at large also has a right to be free of unreasonable hazards, which is why fully automatic weapons — machine guns — are not lawfully available to the general public." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: How many errors can you make in a a single paragraph!?! Self-defense is always 'lawful'. Rights don't balance: a right does not require anything from anyone else. Mag not clip. Tell that to Korean shopowners during the L.A. riots. Communities don't have rights, people do. Full autos are legal (sort of).

If it's necessary to use it, yes, I would shoot to kill. I think all citizens should carry them. The shame is there are too many dope heads and crooks who carry them.

... "The Second Amendment requires the originalists to do some fancy footwork: What did 'Arms' mean in our revolutionary era? 'Arms' then were the muzzle-loading flintlock muskets, with bayonets attached ... Following the originalists' approach, these are the weapons we should be allowed keep and bear today, and not the 32-shot pistol of the kind used to kill and wound people in Tucson, or rapid-fire rifles with the capacity to kill more people at greater range."

"And what did the founders mean by 'a well regulated militia?' It seems that would include only local law enforcement agencies and the National Guard, not heavily armed pockets of fear-mongering private citizens." ...

"In February 1933, a deranged, unemployed bricklayer fired a gun at President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt in Miami. The gunman missed Roosevelt but wounded several others including Chicago’s Mayor Anton Cermak. Within a couple of weeks, the accused pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 80 years in prison. When Mayor Cermak died thereafter, the gunman was retried, convicted, and sentenced to death. He died in the electric chair March 20, 1933."

"No one in politics or the media fired up the smear campaign. No one blamed it on Herbert Hoover’s defeat in 1932. No one screamed about the Second Amendment."

The National Rifle Association fought back, succeeding in defeating some of the people who voted for gun control.
