... "How one ‘devises’ a program that completely omits the part where weapons are followed from gun stores to cartel leaders, and then expects any other result, is left unexplored by Mail Online and other 'legitimate news media' apologists. How anyone can track guns without even attempting to, or botch a sting that has no mark, are questions those who spread such excuses never try to answer." ...

"Florida Jiu-Jitsu trainer and Second Amendment leader told Guns & Patriots women purchasing firearms is a growing trend that, if sustained, will force anti-gun politicians and anti-gun media to back-off gun owners."

"'If you want to empower a woman – give her a gun,' said Regis Giles, creator and owner of Girls Just Wanna Have Guns, a news, information website, developed in 2010 to motivate women to prepare themselves for any threat they may encounter. 'The website received a shockwave of attention.'" ...

"America’s anti-gunners vilify gun owners who dare suggest that armed citizens are a bulwark against government tyranny. Maybe back in the late 1700’s, but not today. They scoff at the idea, arguing that these latter day self-styled armed American patriots wouldn’t stand a chance against the might of a modern military, should such a thing come to pass. Well it has come to pass, just across our southern border . . ."

"Mexico is a case study of exactly what happens to a disarmed populace faced with a tyrannical government, backed by military force."

"... brutalized by drug cartels and their government enablers, Mexico’s disarmed rural populations have taken up arms in their own defense ... and formed citizen militias. ..." ...

... "Engvall does indeed support hunting, but his publicly stated willingness to ban certain firearms in a 2011 appearance suggests that his welcome will be anything but warm. Starting at the 1:40 mark of this clip from Real Time with Bill Maher, Engvall states his position as a 'Fudd' who wants to protect his hunting guns and handguns for self defense, but who is more than willing to compromise the Second Amendment."
"I don’t believe there’s any reason for a person like myself to own an AK-47… I’d be willing to meet you halfway and say I think you can ban guns if you can pull the trigger and 60 bullets come out—there’s no need, it’s not used for hunting, it would ruin any of the meat…" ...

"There are a lot of folks who go out and buy a high quality HD camera and think they are qualified to create a shooting school. Typically speaking, the more complicated and obscure the instructions, the crappier the school. A fella named Dallas Lloyd has created the worst way to return fire from a vehicle. Just watch it..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: This tacti-cool instructor thinks the best way to return fire from a vehicle is to hang upside down out of the back seat and fire back one handed whilst holding on to the door. You need to see the video to experience the magic of how awful this advice really is....

"C.J. Grisham’s mission to legalize the open carrying of handguns began on a hike with his teenage son along a country road in Bell County."

"Suddenly, a Temple police officer rolled up behind, got out of his car and tried to seize a rifle Grisham had strapped across his chest. Grisham asserted his legal right to carry the assault-style weapon. In a flash, he was staring down the barrel of the officer’s pistol ..."

"The 2013 encounter, caught on the officer’s dash cam, became a YouTube phenomenon and a defining moment for the 20-year Army veteran and father of three. Galvanized by the officer’s confusion about state law ... Grisham formed Open Carry Texas to bring attention to and expand gun rights in Texas." ...

"Director Rejina Sincic has created a disturbing video, advocating that teens commits multiple felonies—several of which could lead to injury or death through negligent discharge of the weapon—because of her own hysterical, irrational fear of firearms."

"In the video, a boy steals an unholstered (presumably loaded) firearm from his mother’s room, drops it unsecured into his bookbag, and then carries it to school. After class the boy pulls the pistol out of his bookbag and puts it on his startled teacher’s desk, saying, 'Can you take this away? I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house.'"

"In the real world, such an act would result in the boy facing numerous felony charges ..." ...
 

Newtown victims' families choose poorly with regard to 'entrusting' guns

"On Monday, families of nine of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, and one survivor of that atrocity, filed suit against Bushmaster, manufacturer of the rifle used in the shooting; Camfour, the distributor; and Riverview Sales, the gun shop in which the killer's mother bought the rifle. Right away, this would seem a rather futile legal gambit, because the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms, ... signed by President Bush in 2005, was written specifically for the purpose of thwarting such predatory lawsuits, which attempt to effectively 'ban' by litigation what is politically impossible to ban by legislation."

"The plaintiffs and their legal team apparently believe that obstacle is surmountable. ..." ...

"Responsible gun owners ought to feel revulsion at Machine Gun America."

"Many people take the time to learn about their firearms."

"They spend days — years, even —sharpening their shooting skills and knowledge."

"And they take pains to practice good safety, such as locking guns and ammunition away from kids."

"Machine Gun America, which opens today in Kissimmee and calls itself 'Orlando's first Automatic Adrenaline Attraction,' reduces a serious skill to a cheap thrill."

"'If I was teaching somebody to shoot, this isn't even the Reader's Digest version ... this is just a taste ... really just the thrill of it,' Wes Doss, the attraction's safety and training director, told me."

"But that's precisely the problem." ...

"For generations, domestic abuse was a shameful secret kept by families."

"Today, it’s a legislative shame."

"While South Carolina has long ranked among the nation’s worst in violence against women, state lawmakers have done little more than study the issue. The Violence Policy Center in Washington, D.C., currently ranks the state as the second most deadly in the nation for women at the hands of men."

"But following a compelling series by The Post and Courier newspaper in Charleston that spotlighted the extent of domestic violence and work by a legislative committee chaired by Rep. Shannon Erickson, R-Beaufort, change may finally come." ...

"IF ownership of handguns is allowed in the CNMI, it will only increase the crime rate, according to Saipan and Northern Islands Municipal Council Chairman Ramon B. Camacho, a retired police major."

"As an anti-crime advocate who initiated the Neighborhood Watch Task Force, Camacho said he is “very concerned” about the expected federal court ruling that will allow residents to own and carry a handgun."

"'There are lots of cases on the mainland involving students who bring handguns to school,' he added."

"The CNMI, he said, has the best gun control in the U.S. 'because we don’t allow handguns.'" ...

"Time Magazine warned of a growing threat to cops nationwide in September 2010. The nationally renowned publication argued that sinister individuals would launch targeted attacks against police officers and even ambush them in their patrol cars."

"Time alerted readers that these groups and individuals have a disturbing hatred of cops and that there was a real threat of 'lone-wolf' attacks."

"Who are these groups that present such a threat to police? Right-wing militias, according to Time."

"In a lengthy six-page article entitled 'The Secret World of Extremist Militias,' then-Time Contributing Editor-at-Large Barton Gellman made the case that America should be deeply worried about private citizens forming militias." ...

"Under fire from police groups and even former New York Gov. George Pataki, how long will it be before anti-gun New York Mayor Bill de Blasio tries to shift public attention away from himself and tries to blame so-called 'lax gun laws' and Second Amendment organizations for yesterday’s slaying of two police officers by a career criminal apparently bent on killing police?" ...

"UPDATE: Looks like the NAACP beat him to it. The Daily Caller is now reporting that the NAACP ... has issued a statement that reads, in part, 'These two killings…like so many other unfortunate incidences of gun violence, provide a stark example of the need for sensible gun control measures and the need to thoughtfully address untreated mental illness.'" ...

"On Saturday, two uniformed police officers were murdered execution-style as they sat in their patrol car. Although they didn't pull the trigger, MSNBC host Al Sharpton and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio were blamed for creating an environment in which the shootings could take place. Newsmax reported that former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik pointed a finger of blame at both Sharpton and de Blasio."

"'They have blood on their hands,' he said. 'de Blasio, Sharpton and all those who encouraged this anti-cop, racist mentality all have blood on their hands.'" ...

"A new gun safety bill has been drafted and will go before the Legislature in 2015, galvanizing an initiative that most recently died on the House floor last winter."

"Rep. Katherine Rogers, D-Concord, is waiting to receive an edited draft of her bill from legislative services that she said is similar in nature to a bill sponsored by Rep. Elaine Andrews-Ahearn, D-Hampton Falls, earlier this year. That bill would have expanded background checks for firearm purchases to include all private sales, including those made at gun shows and over the Internet."

"Andrews-Ahearn’s bill lost to a vote of 242-118 in February, but Rogers believes a second push is needed and could be successful." ...

"In the first ruling of its kind since 2008′s DC v. Heller, a three-judge panel of the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the federal ban on gun ownership for anyone who has been 'adjudicated as a mental defective or who has been committed to a mental institution' violates the Second Amendment."

"Michigan resident Clifford Tyler sued in federal court after the ... provision ... prevented him from buying a gun." ...
"Tyler, 73, was committed to a Michigan mental institution in 1985 after suffering a breakdown tied to a contentious divorce, according to court filings. After a month he was released and went back to work and had no other instances of being committed, the filings show." ...

... "... I could spend this entire story listing off all the lawsuits, the federal investigations and exhaustive citizen commission reports about corruption and violence in LA County jails. There are the grisly details of inmate beatings by gang-like cliques of sheriff's officers while higher-ups look the other way. Then you have the indictments handed down by the U.S. attorney here that recently led to criminal convictions against top sheriff's deputies. The federal government accused them of encouraging the violence. In one case, a deputy beat and pepper sprayed an inmate and then taught other lower-level officers how to write a report covering up the abuse."

"But now, after all this, there are signs that some of these problems are being addressed. ..." ...

As a matter of fact, chicago.cbslocal.com reports, 'Police officers are assigned to the mayor’s home front and back 24 hours a day. There are also cameras at both ends of the block.'
