"They’re still talking about the perceived Obama administration draft proposal to push recreational shooters off federal lands ... but there is a serious aspect of this story that belongs in the spotlight."

"The rationale, as reported by Washington Whispers columnist Paul Bedard, that the draft proposal was a response to 'a social conflict issue' rather than a genuine safety issue, must be addressed, because this lies at the heart of the gun prohibition movement. ..."

"If, as alleged by [BLM] natural resource specialist Frank Jenks, people from the city 'freak out' when they hear the sound of gunfire on public land, there is a simple solution. They can get over it, or just stay off public land." ...

... "Founded in 2006 with 15 mayors at its core, including former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels, Mayors Against Illegal Guns has become a powerful voice in the gun prohibition movement, while hardly uttering a squeak about some of its own members who have run afoul of the law."

"It might be argued that Nickels violated state law when he unsuccessfully imposed a ban on legally-carried firearms in Seattle city park facilities, after being advised by State Attorney General Rob McKenna that the ban was illegal. It took a court challenge led by the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation and [CCRKBA], and the [NRA], to make it official ..."

Glow Ammo: “Cold” Tracers Turn Pistols into Laser Guns (video available)

"There are problems with modern tracer rounds, the biggest is that they rely on the friction from flying through the air to heat up the element which glows and makes it visible. Not only does a 'hot' tracer such as that have a tendency to start fires, but it can easily be seen by enemy troops ... Glow Ammo claims to fix all of those issues, using a 'cold' tracer substance placed on the back of the bullet that is visible only to the shooter and others on their side of the firing line. Ammo is available and seems to be shipping, but at about $1 a round it’s still spendy stuff." ...

"All states but one issue permits to people to carry concealed guns. A bill in Congress would require those states to recognize similar permits issued by all other states. This is dangerous. Why? Because the standards for getting permits in some states, Utah included, are too lax." ...

Submitter's Note: So where's the "blood in the streets"? Why haven't we heard about massive outbreaks of road rage shootings by permit holders? Or innocent passers-by accidentally shot by permit holders defending themselves? Surely if Utah's requirements are so lax the media must have dozens of such stories ready to trot out.

... "... Today, some members of Congress want each new law proposed to pass a Founding Fathers’ test: If it isn’t in the Constitution, it should not become law."

"Given that, it’s hard to understand how the House of Representatives managed to pass, 272-154, a bill that would allow any individual with a license to carry a concealed weapon to take that weapon into any other state that permits concealed weapons ... regardless of whether the state visited has more stringent regulations for a concealed-carry permit." ...

"Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY-17) slammed the House Republican Majority for passing a bill which would force all 50 states to accept concealed handgun carry permits issued in other states, regardless of whether or not the permit violates state law. The bill would override individual state laws and create serious difficulty for law enforcement." ...
-------

KABA Note: We would never accuse a Congresscritter of incompetence, therefore he must just be lying.
"force all 50 states" - nope, 45 states; because IL has no permit system and VT, AK, AZ and WY have 'Constitutional carry'.
"override individual state laws" - nope, every law that applies to native permit-holders applies to visitiing permit holders.

I could go on, but I was never into beating dead horses.
 

NRA campaigns to arm dangerous people are reckless

... "When the NRA talks about the right of Americans to carry firearms, one of the usual arguments is self-defense. Should a threatening person break into your family’s house at night, you have every right to use your licensed gun to protect yourself, the reasoning goes. Yet as the NRA presents itself as a defender of public safety, it undermines its own argument by taking perplexing, indefensible stances that promote the rights of scary people to own guns. Consider its more recent lobbying campaigns:"

"• Promoting the federal law approved yesterday by the House that would override state policies on concealed guns, so a violent offender permitted to carry a hidden gun in a lax state such as Florida also could do so here. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) asked President Obama to issue a veto threat." ...

"With the Second Amendment at long last recognized by the Supreme Court as protecting the individual right of all U.S. citizens to keep and bear arms, the House of Representatives has voted to protect gun owners from being deprived of this fundamental liberty simply because they choose to travel from one state to another."

"On Wednesday, a strong, bipartisan majority in the House passed the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act. The legislation, which now heads to the Senate, would allow a resident of a state that allows concealed carry to possess a firearm while visiting another state that may not necessarily be as protective of firearms rights." ...

"But Gingrich has more baggage to get through on his path to the nomination. He jumped on the global warming bandwagon with Hillary Clinton.

Her article well describes the relatively simple process for obtaining a resident CCW permit in Bedford and almost all New Hampshire towns. I might note that while the permit rate is rather steady in Bedford, that gun sales and ownership have significantly increased nationwide since 2008, likely over fears that the current administration would act to increase gun restrictions. Indeed, the current administration has worked to do so through executive actions and policies that don’t require legislative voting ..." ...
