... "Cassidy, Maness and other gun-rights supporters generally proclaim their fealty to the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and to a strict construction thereof. Yet, they seem reluctant to press their views to their logical conclusion."

"The Second Amendment reads, in its entirety: 'A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.'"

"Much ink has been spilled over those first phrase ... and quite a lot expended over 'people' ... and even over the meaning of 'keep and bear.'"

"Receiving less attention is the one capitalized word remaining: arms."

"That term would seem to cover a vast range of weaponry. ..." ...

... "Bringing up the next generation of safety-conscious shooters is an important responsibility, and with that in mind you take your daughter to an outdoor spot for her first lesson. ... Maybe it’s your own property; maybe it’s an open area where shooting is legally permitted. You know your target, and what is beyond it. For this first lesson you’ve selected a Ruger 77/22 for its precision, usability and minimal recoil. You or your chosen teacher take your place alongside your daughter, who has already been thoroughly trained in safety, and you hand her the rifle."

"You live in Washington state."

"You’ve just committed a gross misdemeanor." ...

... "But for Jocelyn Wood, an Olympia resident who has been volunteering for pro-594 phone banks, the election is about safety and the kind of world her young children will inherit."

"'I would not call myself an activist in any real movement,' said Wood, who works in public health. 'But I’m a mom with two young boys and I want to raise them in the safest environment I can. I had been following gun violence for quite a while; I had just graduated from high school when Columbine happened. … When Sandy Hook happened, I just had a gut reaction — I had to get involved.'" ...

DOJ and ATF appealing ‘No Angel’ Dobyns' court settlement order

... "With yesterday’s appeal notice, a new and expensive legal battle for Dobyns begins, just when he thought he was ready to put this chapter behind him and move on. The government has virtually unlimited tax-funded resources to drag matters on in the courts, making the ability of a private citizen to sustain his claims prohibitive for most. For his part, Dobyns pledges not to quit." ...

... "With outside moneyed interests like Michael Bloomberg’s deceptively-named 'Everytown' doing everything they can to protect their political interests from gun voter retaliation at the polls, particularly after the ouster of two anti-gun politicians and the resignation of another to avoid being recalled, a convenient and fun tool now exists to help roll back the Astroturf. 'Hickenlooper Blues' produced by grassroots activists at no cost and without authorization or participation by any candidate or political committee, throws radical Saul Alinsky’s 'Rule 5' ridicule right back in the faces of so-called 'progressives.'" ...

"CONVENTIONAL wisdom holds that firearms are the preserve of conservative white men. You would never know this at my local shooting range, which happens to be in a majority African-American area, and has a clientele that reflects that fact. There, as a white man, I’m often in the minority; just one more guy who likes to fire weapons — another person to chat to and share stories with. It is, I’d venture, how things should be."

"By rights, the Second Amendment should serve as a totem of African-Americans’ full citizenship and enfranchisement. ..." ...

"If it was just a political pander, it was a beauty. But if it was a serious statement of philosophy, it was chilling -- even scary."

"Joni Ernst, the Iowa candidate who has vaulted to within an inch of United States Senate due to her boasting of hog castration in this year's most inventive political ad, was speaking to the National Rifle Association in 2012."

"'I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family -- whether it's from an intruder, or whether it's from a government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.'"

"Huh?" ...

... "'I believe she’s actually the real hero. She’s the one that intercepted him with the gun. He tried either reloading or tried aiming at her. She tried moving his hand away and he tried shooting and shot himself in the neck,' Cervantes said." ...

"'She heard the gunshots first and she came in running through the door, right next to it,' he recalled."

"Cervantes said there was no prolonged struggle between Silberberger and the gunman."

"'It wasn’t (a) wrestle. She just grabbed his arm, and it lasted like two seconds, and I heard another shot.'" ...

"On everything from ACA to voting rights, incumbent Democrat Pallone and Republican rival Wilkinson are on opposite sides of issue" ...

"Wilkinson ... promotes his support for the Second Amendment."

"Pallone pointed to his record of support for ‘reasonable and commonsense gun control to maintain the safety in our schools, public spaces, and communities,’ including limits on high-capacity magazines." ...

The maintenance of the right to bear arms is a most essential one to every free people and should not be whittled down by technical constructions. [State vs. Kerner, 181 N.C. 574, 107 S.E. 222, at 224 (1921)]
