"Last week's tragic shootings in Canada and Washington state are certain to lead to new calls for gun control. The media-generated fear over 'lone wolf terrorists' will enable the gun control lobby to smear Second Amendment supporters as 'pro-terrorist.' Marketing gun control as an anti-terrorist measure will also enable gun control supporters to ally with those who support any infringement on liberty done in the name of 'homeland security.'"

"As with most infringements on liberty, gun control will not only make us less free, it will make us less safe. Respecting the right of the people to keep and bear arms is the original and best homeland security policy. ..." ...

"As Dan Aykroyd and Steve Martin used to say, now are the foxes! OK, that’s a bit of a stretch. But for fans of the United States Constitution as she is written, Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano is as good as it gets. The slicked-back sage never fails to stand up for Americans’ constitutional rights, including but not limited to our right to keep and bear arms. Better yet, when the Judge offers his defense, he does it in language even two Czechoslovakian swingers could understand . . ."

"Gallup’s latest gun rights-themed poll shows that by and large, Americans haven’t been swayed by high-profile shootings into ceding their Second Amendment rights."

"In the wake of the 2012 shootings at Newtown, 58% of Americans polled said they favored stricter laws governing gun ownership; since then, however, that number has dropped to 47%." ...

"The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) – the firearms industry lobby group – have released their most recent survey of firearms injuries and fatalities. Click here for a farrago of charts and graphics, all leading to one inescapable conclusion: guns aren’t dangerous, relatively speaking. Poisoning, for example, accounts for half of all unintentional fatalities in the home. Negligent discharges? Easily rounded down to zero (.06%). In terms of overall accidental deaths, firearms rate just below machinery-related fatalities, accounting for 0.5 percent of the total. Again, effectively zero. That said . . ." ...

"On the eve of Election Day, Everytown is mobilizing more than one million Americans to head to the polls tomorrow to vote for leaders and laws that will prevent gun violence – part of the organization's campaign to build a constituency of Americans who will vote on gun safety this November and in future elections. Earlier this year, Everytown launched the Gun Sense Voter campaign with the goal of signing up one million Americans to vote for leaders and laws that will prevent gun violence. Everytown also endorsed state and federal candidates and has spent more than $4 million to support Washington State's ballot measure to reduce crime and help save lives by closing the background check loophole." ...

... "Weeks was brutally raped as a college junior at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. As she recounted last year, 'I will never know if I would have been able to stop my rape if I had owned a firearm. ... Had I been armed, I very well could have changed my circumstances and possibly prevented another attack on myself or the next victim.'"

"Firestone dismissed Weeks’ response to Bloomberg’s gun-grabbing efforts by asserting that 'the former mayor is not trying to take away anyone’s legal handgun, and neither is any Democrat.' Never mind that Colorado Democrats ... were contemplating a radical ban on concealed carry on college campuses." ...

"New York Times editorial writer David Firestone took aim at the National Rifle Association on Friday, criticizing the pro-Second Amendment group’s 'attack ads.'"

"Calling one ad the 'worst commercial,' Firestone suggested a rape victim was scaremongering."

"The ad, he said, 'features a rape victim describing her assault and accusing Mr. Bloomberg of wanting to take away her right to defend herself.'"

"Bloomberg, of course, is New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the driving force behind a push for gun control. The rape victim is Kimberly Weeks, a real person with a real story, but The Times editorialist can’t be bothered with such trivial details." ...

"Many comparisons have been made between the homicide rates of the United States and various European countries. They have been made between members of the G-8, or among 'developed' or 'advanced' countries, or 'economically developed' countries, though all of these comparisons suffer from various unstated assumptions, typically that economic development is a prime predictor of homicide rates., which clearly is not correct. The above chart was created from UNODC data . . ." ...

"Demons, tormented spirits, poltergeists, devils, and Death himself are not uncommon characters this time of year. Nor are they uncommon on this set of percussion pistols crafted by renowned Parisian gunmaker Jean-Louis Francois Devisme, who made some of the world’s most artistic firearms for royalty, wealthy members of society, government officials, and high ranking military men. Famous for his artistic talents, Devisme set the European gunmaking scene on fire ... For over three decades he not only competed at the top of his art, but won regularly.

"They call themselves the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, named after the co-founder of the Black Panther Party For Self Defense. Like the defunct organization which called for reform of community policing, demanding that police come from the neighborhoods they serve, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club says they are marching 'to promote self-defense and community policing' in response to the recent high profile stories about police shooting unarmed African Americans across the country."

"To the protesters, 'community policing' is more than just a word. Communities should be protected by members of the community, and held accountable. Ironically this was the original vision for community policing, articulated in 1812 by Sir Robert Peel. ..." ...

"On Nov. 4, Washington gun-owners and sportsmen will have a very easy decision to make when it comes to protecting your rights. Washington State is the site of a key political fight between anti-gun billionaires who are trying to buy an election and pro-gun advocates. It is vital for everyone to have their voices heard in Washington state by voting NO for Initiative 594 and YES for Initiative 591."

"In the past, NSSF conducted an online survey of federal-licensed firearms retailers and it revealed that those who would be on the front line of implementing what is touted as 'universal background checks' have serious concerns both about whether such proposals would work ...'" ...

"Today’s Seattle Times carries a fairly detailed, cover-lots-of-bases story about Initiative 591 that asserts in the headline that an advertisement for the measure 'misrepresents law enforcement.'"

"The Seattle Times recommended a 'No' vote on I-591 back on July 5, while endorsing rival Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure. Today’s story on the I-591 campaign claim that I-591 is supported by law enforcement in the form of two major organizations, the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs (WACOPS) and Washington State Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association (WSLEFIA) is dubbed 'half true' by the newspaper’s 'Truth Needle.'" ...

"It's a bad time to be a game animal in the United States."

"With midterm elections due on Tuesday, and Barack Obama a lame duck in the White House, American political candidates – a literal-minded bunch – have in record numbers decided to let their weapons do the talking."

"Guns are a smoking-hot accessory in this campaign."

"They are wielded either by Republicans, for whom muscular public love-making to the Second Amendment provides some protection against crazies to the right, or by Democrats, for whom a sense of polite distance from their stricken Commander-In-Chief can best and most cheaply be conveyed by gunning down a brace of gophers on YouTube." ...

"'I was going to stay out of it,' Visconti said. 'I didn’t even tell my supporters I was doing this.'"

"It’s still unclear exactly where Visconti — a proponent of the Second Amendment who opposed the Common Core State Standards — will go."

"Malloy’s campaign said the move means Foley has 'doubled down on his plans to repeal Connecticut’s strict smart gun law that has made our neighborhoods, our schools and our streets safer.'" ...

"Narrowly beating a midnight deadline, Congress voted Monday to renew an expiring ban on plastic firearms that can evade airport detection machines. But Republicans blocked an effort to toughen the restrictions - the latest defeat for gun-control forces in the year since the grade school massacre in Newtown, Conn."

... "'Plays and movies like 'West Side Story' fed the political hysteria to restrict these knives,' says Doug Ritter, an Arizona survival expert and knife designer who has led efforts to repeal knife laws in statehouses around the country. 'There was never any rational basis for it, just as there isn’t today.'"

"Ritter and other members of a growing 'knife rights' movement say it’s time to bring the switchblade back. Like gun rights activists – who have convinced lawmakers in many states to make it easier to buy and carry military-style rifles and other powerful firearms – supporters of knife rights say they should be free to carry any blade they want, with few restrictions." ...

"'If you’re wearing a legally owned, unconcealed handgun, then an officer may initiate a reasonable interaction to determine your intent. This is not a violation of your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. It’s simply a cop doing his job.'" ...

Submitter's Note: Actually the Supreme Court has ruled that exercising ones' rights does not constitute 'reasonable articulable suspicion' of wrongdoing. And it's a violation of our Fourth Amendment rights Sheriff.

"On Saturday, more than 400 educators — two-thirds of them women — from throughout the region will gather at the Centennial Gun Club for a free conceal-carry class, the largest one-day training session ever in Colorado, organizers say."

"The Episcopal Church in Michigan — which includes the areas of Lansing and Jackson — voted to crack down on Second Amendment rights via a resolution at the 180th convention of the Episcopal Diocese."

"Specifically, the resolution — which passed with a large majority — expresses favor for universal background checks for all gun buys and for bans on all sales of decreed semiautomatic weapons and high-impact, high-capacity ammunition and magazines, the Detroit Free Press reported. The resolution also calls to make gun trafficking a federal crime." ...

"'We ... stand for public policies to ban violence and assault weapons,' the resolution states. 'Access to guns with rapid fire ability and high capacity magazines are a common, deadly ingredient in ... repeated killings.'" ...
