NRA’s ‘A-’ grade for Begich in Alaska Senate race endangers GOP takeover

... "... To have any meaning at all, Begich’s vote for Sotomayor should have dropped his rating by a full letter grade, and I would argue for more than that. But compounding the effects of his betrayal with a vote for Kagan should have resulted in an example that all would have taken notice of. Degrading him to an 'A-' after that is a transparently insincere joke. With that party über alles move, and by adding potentially mortal insult to critical injury, he should have been given an 'F' for life." ...

"The atrocities committed by Osama Bin Laden’s followers on September 11, 2001 should have been enough to convince Americans that they face a serious, ongoing threat from death-dealing 'Islamic extremists.' The kind of threat that requires a radical increase in the number of armed Americans to defend against terrorism. And a large, aggressive military presence ... The President and his supporters don’t see it that way. Obama’s love of civilian disarmament ... is well-known. His decision to withdraw our troops from Iraq – enabling the rise of the ISIS caliphate – is the logical flip side of this disarmament delusion. Like an airplane accident, it’s only a matter of time before these two mistakes combine with some other failure to allow another horrific attack . . ." ...

"Robert’s recent article, Self-Defense Tip: Go All-In. Unless You Don’t Have To brought back memories. I’m a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. I served as a Security Policeman (not pictured above) — the USAF equivalent of an actual policeman, not a rivet counter–during the Cold War. I was stationed in the United States at a northern base, a place most people considered hardship duty, but having been raised in that part of the world, it felt like home to me. In those days, SPs and pararescue troops were just about the only USAF personnel that were ever under arms or regularly trained with arms and tactics. As unlikely as it was that I might have to use deadly force in my duties, it was something I had to think about . . ." ...

... "I’m not asking for property owners to show compliance with commonly accepted security requirements, but at a minimum, acknowledgement of the risks associated in posting the sign. Many businesses in Texas post them and I don’t feel particularly compelled to reward them with my money. As we’ve seen time and time again, asking patrons not to carry and posting a 'No Guns' sign that doesn’t carry the force of law is enough to shut down the vocal minority looking for some cheap wins in the media. Why go further and turn ordinary guys like me into criminals for wanting to simultaneously exercise a right and give you my money?" ...

... "Whenever a mentally ill person kills with a gun, be it in these lesser-known cases or in higher-profile mass shootings, the question naturally arises: Why can’t more be done to keep weapons out their hands? A tangle of interests works against stronger restrictions."

"Mental-health professionals fear stigmatizing mentally ill people, most of whom are not violent. Doctors fear liability, both for labeling someone as violent and for failing to do so. Privacy rights are an issue. And elected officials at every level of government quiver at the threats of the NRA, which staunchly fights any perceived attack on the Second Amendment." ...

"Bigger doesn’t always mean better. With silencers the general rule of thumb is that the larger the internal volume of the can, the better sound suppression you’re going to get, but there’s definitely a point where increased volume gets you diminishing returns. For example, slapping a Mystic-X on your Ruger handgun makes the thing whisper quiet, but the size of the can looks awkward and makes the gun a little front heavy. For the shooter who’s looking for a slimmer solution to their rimfire suppression needs, Liberty Suppressors presents the Kodiak TL . . ." ...

"Loaded question: What if the law of the land prevented you from shooting, training, hunting or even owning an AR-15, an AK-47, or the highly anticipated Israeli Tavor? What if semi-automatic guns and full capacity magazines got banned? Or maybe these great parts of the gun culture were simply regulated just out of reach. It’s too real of a possibility for some, too remote for others . . ."

"What would you do then, for a super cool, highly effective gun that is every bit as exciting as the best AR-15 on steroids?

"First, a little context. Washington State is gearing up for a vote on a proposed 'universal background check' law in this coming election cycle, and as we all know universal background check ('UBC') laws suck (because of the unintended consequences mainly, not necessarily due to the intent of the law). As a way of ginning up support for the measure, the Seattle Times ran a piece a few days ago with a rather sensational title ‘Background check denials rise for would-be pistol buyers‘ trying to lead people to believe that more criminals are trying to buy guns and therefore we need new laws to protect us from evil. There are a couple of problems with that analysis. Or lack thereof . . ." ...

"Ms. Giffords, who was severely wounded in a 2011 shooting in Tucson, Ariz., that killed six people, has become a key figure in the national gun control campaign.

Submitter's note: Anita makes more money when there is more drama. Her withdrawal is more proof that modern "feminists" demand total control, see all people as untrustworthy, and have a paranoia problem as they profit from artificially generated fear.

"The League of Women Voters of Florida has conducted more than 30 compliance checks at gun shops across the state."

"Deirdre Macnab, Florida League’s current president, said her members are lwvchecking to see whether the shops have a sign displayed, which tells patrons it’s illegal to allow an unattended firearm to fall into the hands of someone under 16." ...

"Macnab believes Florida has irresponsible gun owners."

"'Whenever you have accidents, the short answer is yes we do,' she said." ...

Submitter's Note: According to the CDC, from 2007 - 2011 among those 15 and under, Florida had an accidental gun-related death rate of 0.06. During that same time period, the national rate was 0.11.

That could well be the most bald-faced example of anti-gun judicial activism we’ve ever encountered. Judge Stephens wasn’t shy about the motivation behind his gun ban bias . . ." ...

Lead investigator Special Agent Wendell Palmer directly violated countless Air Force Policy Directives, including the interrogation of a subordinate as part of a criminal investigation, which is a conflict of interests; failing to read Arnold his rights during any of the interrogation sessions; ghostwriting statements from Arnold and all other witnesses; and failure to provide receipts for property, firearms, and records seized from Arnold, other witnesses, and even the Sig Sauer Academy in New Hampshire where Arnold worked as an adjunct instructor while on administrative leave." ...

"The Association of Chief Police Officers' (ACPO), the body that represents senior police officers in the United Kingdom, has begun a campaign to send police to enter the homes of legal gun owners to snoop on them. Many of those who may receive visits cannot understand why they would be targeted and suspect it is to discourage gun ownership in Britain."

""The Countryside Alliance ... fears that the new initiative will target ordinary members of the public ... The group has launched a campaign to alert Members of Parliament to the issue. The policy is also the latest in a series of 'power grabs' by ACPO, which is effectively a trade union, but regularly demands executive powers with little accountability to the public." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
