SAF Says New Gallup Data Shows Americans Value Their Gun Rights

... "'American citizens have become increasingly aware that they are the true 'first responders' when a crime happens in their presence,' noted SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. 'The public's attitude about gun ownership has changed dramatically in the last decade, and especially since the Supreme Court's Heller ruling in 2008 and our victory in the 2010 McDonald ruling, affirming the Second Amendment protects an individual civil right."

"'The public has also realized that all the doom and gloom rhetoric from gun prohibitionists about more crime and violence associated with increased gun ownership has been wrong,' he continued. ..." ...
 

De León Mexican ‘gun flow’ meeting confirms predictions

... "There was a surprise at the meeting: ATF was a no-show. A correspondent and activist who attended, who has asked to be identified in this report only as 'Threeper George S.,' recorded closing statements for the meeting (click on sidebar media player) as well as his own questioning of Sen. de León about Gunwalker after the meeting had adjourned, where the Senator stated ATF 'backed out last minute,' and that the decision came not from the 5th floor (ATF HQ senior executive level), but from the Department of Justice—that in itself is a newsworthy revelation, as it shows command decisions for ATF appearances are being carefully managed and directed by higher authorities." ...

... "This is not to say that there are not legitimate state-sovereignty objections to H.R. 822. Chief among those would be that in asserting the bill's claim of Constitutional authority, it perpetuates the rampant abuse of the interstate commerce clause (H.R. 2900, on the other hand, cites the Second Amendment as its Constitutional authority for federal protection of the right to carry a defensive firearm)--the same clause, by the way, that the federal government cites as providing the legitimacy for trampling the Firearms Freedom Act laws passed in several states."

"As it happens, though, there is nothing inconsistent in supporting both state sovereignty and federal enforcement of the 'bear' in 'right to keep and bear arms'. ..." ...

"If you're wondering why President Obama is not pushing gun control, it could be because support for such efforts is at its lowest point ever."

"A Gallup poll released on Wednesday shows that just 26% of people favor a ban on handguns. To put that in perspective, the first time Gallup asked that question in 1959, 60% were in favor of a ban. But since 1975 the majority of Americans have supported guns; the current 73% is the highest ever." ...

"This one has been around a long time, but I never gave it much credence. While there are those who debate our Constitution's intent in regard to guaranteeing the right to bear arms, I felt our government would never give away that right."

"Well, there are those now who apparently are exploring just that."

"The Obama administration is seeking advice and consent for Senate ratification of an international small arms treaty [CIFTA] that supports the inclusion of small arms in the U.N. Register of Conventional Arms."

"Inclusion in the treaty would essentially put the gun rights of U.S. citizens in the hands of the United Nations, which isn't big on individual ownership of firearms." ...

"There is no Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The Second Amendment simply tells us that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Unlike the First Amendment's prohibition against Congress making laws abridging certain rights we hold dear, the Second Amendment is an outright prohibition on all branches of our federal government from infringing on our right to defend ourselves."

... "... If a scope can handle the recoil of a centerfire cartridge I would think it would be able to handle a shotgun or magnum handgun. I think most handgun scopes would have relatively long eye relief but should be pretty strong if The Lord Humongous can use one on a Python to take out the radiator of a fleeing tanker. Would it be possible (or desirable?) to use a handgun scope with a scout mount on a centerfire?"
"Lord Humongous actually used a Model 29, but you’re close. As for the rest of your question, you’d be surprised just how much recoil a handgun has." ...

"Few of us shoot as often as we’d like, let alone as often as we should. I certainly don’t. Time’s always a problem ... Gun ranges tend to be located in two types of areas; they're either 1) in sketchy, industrial parts of town that may or may not require body armor to negotiate, or 2) out in the exurban sprawl where land is cheap, zoning is easy and the corn is high. Wouldn't it be nice, though, if working on your dot torture drill was as easy and convenient as going to your local mall? Sure, you'd have to dodge those geriatric, velour-suited mallwalkers but that's a small price to pay for cutting your drive time in half, right? A recent trend in commercial real estate just might make that possible…" ...

"In this economy everyone’s looking to save a buck. For gun people this concept tends to manifest itself more prominently when it comes to accessories we strap on our toys. Optics tend to be the priciest of all and can subtract money from our bank accounts faster than Eric Holder can say, 'I only learned of it a few weeks ago.' For those of us that don't have the cash flow to go out and buy a $1400 ACOG or a $560 EoTech, the land of quality optics tends to be just out of reach. ... Nick has shown us that cheap optics isn’t always synonymous with crappy optics, but it’s still hard to find something that can give you the features of an EoTech at the price point of a Bushnell.

"When I first became a police officer I could not wait to get my hands on my new department issued gun. Once I received it, it was very rare that we would separate. Then one day I left my trusty gun at home. 'It’s ok,' I thought, 'I’ll carry it next time.' I got in my personal vehicle and drove away. Then, over time, not having my gun happened a second time, then a third and so on, until finally, I stopped carrying it."

"The complacency of not having my gun turned into normalcy for me. I mean, how many times have I been out in my lifetime and had to draw my gun? After all, nothing is going to happen to me, right? ..." ...

The Virginia Civil Defense League, Virginia’s firearms owner rights protection group, just announced their plans to hold a protest on November 17th on the Virginia Tech campus to promote the legalization of concealed firearms on campus (with the proper permits, of course). ..." ...

"Let's leave aside for the moment the disturbing notion of a president of the United States setting up a web site so that his supporters can 'report' on the statements and activities of his opponents.
