"'Two dozen protesters from a gun club named for the founder of the Black Panther Party marched through the streets of South Dallas,' Dallas News reported Wednesday. 'The open-carry rally was organized by the Huey P. Newton Gun Club to promote self-defense and community policing in response to recent police shootings.'" ...

"'What If the Tea Party Were Black?' an AlterNet hit piece on right to keep and bear arms defenders asked, echoing a common indictment among 'progressives' in a hope to discover and point out racist hypocrisy – either that or just smear us with the presumptions of their own imaginations. 'Imagine that hundreds of black protesters descended on DC armed with AK-47s. Would they be defended as patriotic Americans?'"

"Mike Bloomberg thought he was on a roll. In the wake of Sandy Hook, his money managed to buy unconstitutional legislation in Connecticut, Colorado, Maryland and New York. ... Most importantly ... his money and that of Bill Gates, Paul Allen and other like-minded elitists 'bought the mob' (in the parlance of the Founders) with the success of I-594 in Washington state." ...

"But then something happened that Bloomberg in his arrogance never expected ... in every single state where Bloomberg had 'won,' it turned out that the victims of his unconstitutional laws had other ideas. ..."

"Two years after the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School, some things have changed, but much—particularly misinformation—has remained the same. Sandy Hook Elementary School is no more; it has been demolished. This is a common, if illogical response to jarring events. Perhaps by obliterating the place, we can obliterate the memories, exorcise whatever ghosts hide in its darkest recesses. As generations pass, memories fade. Unfortunately, it isn’t so easy to obliterate misconceptions, even lies about events. Particularly when there is a narrative and people are invested in perpetuating it, truth and fact become secondary. They are always barriers to understanding greater and more important 'truths' . . ." ...

"Ruger’s SR series of striker-fired pistols was preceded by the P-series of double action/single action pistols. The last of the P-series pistols was the P95, which Ruger quietly retired in October of 2013. Few lamented the passing of this under appreciated pistol. This review is meant to serve as a belated eulogy for the P95, a durable, reliable, and affordable pistol that may not be state of the art in any way, but for most people — beginners especially — is a reasonable choice . . ." ...

"On command, the 16 'riflemen-in-training' fell to their stomachs and fired off a volley of shots."

"Most of them hit their marks in or just outside of their one square-inch targets, the equivalent of a 400 yard shot. It was impressive marksmanship for a group with about four hours of instruction."

"Results come quickly at Project Appleseed events. In the two-day clinics, volunteers from the Revolutionary War Veterans Association give a crash course on the foundations of rifle marksmanship, some little-known history about the origins of the Revolutionary War and some context on the American rifleman's role in the conflict." ...

"The [NRA] is fighting a new ban on the sale of ivory in the United Sates, meant to protect Africa’s threatened wildlife, because they say it would be disastrous for gun owners."

"The NRA is backing new legislation in Congress that would roll back the ivory ban and prevent any regulations under the Endangered Species Act from disrupting or restricting the sale of lawful ivory. ..."

"Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s lobbying arm, told news site The Hill earlier this year, 'While the goal of restricting illegal commerce in endangered species is laudable, the effects of the ivory ban would be disastrous for American firearms owners and sportsmen, as well as anyone else who currently owns ivory.'" ...

... "With barely thinking about how outlandish this attempt at a 'Public Service Message' is, I can readily think of three questions I would like to ask the director and producers of this message."
"1. How many different laws did this video encourage the kids to break?"
"1.a. Sub question - How many laws were broken when this video was made?
"2. Do feelings that '[you] don't feel safe with a gun in [your] house' absolve you of the multiple felonies that you just committed?"

"3. How much more danger are you encouraging to be created if other kids who watch the video actually follow the example of the kid in the video by taking a gun to school?" ...

"Who'd have thought committing felonies was a public service? Apparently, a San Francisco-based video producer does, according to December 22 Washington Post and Washington Times reports."

"A two minute and 52 second 'PSA' (2:05 without 47 seconds of credits at the end) on YouTube shows teenagers that the way to 'Stop Gun Violence Now' is to (1) sneak into your mother's bedroom, (2) steal a handgun from her dresser drawer, (3) hide it in your backpack, (4) take it to school and bring it with you to class, (5) whip it out and scare your teacher half to death, (6) dump it on her desk, and (7) say, 'Can you take this away? I don't feel safe with a gun in my house.'" ...

"On December 22, The Washington Post (WaPo) claimed private gun ownership makes police less safe."

"With this assertion, the WaPo joined other reactionaries–like the NAACP and Everytown for Gun Safety–who have politicized the heinous attack on two NYPD officers for their own gun control purposes."

"According to the WaPo, 'Today we should be talking about … guns not simply because one was used Saturday in the shooting deaths of two police officers, but because guns underlie the very tension between police and communities in America that voices saner than Brinsley [the gunman] have been trying to resolve.'" ...

"Obama’s and Holder’s Dept. of Justice has devised a devious method for putting certain enterprises that they have decided are 'immoral' out of business. The program, called 'Operation Choke Point,' coerces banks and credit card companies to deny certain businesses access to banking and credit."

"The program, shrouded in secrecy, was originally launched to put private lenders out of business. The porn industry is also a target. But there are no limits on the kinds of businesses that can be choked off."

"Gun manufacturers, gun dealers, and ammunition makers and dealers are among other classes of legitimate and legal enterprises that are being affected." ...

Things are almost as good in the State Senate, though conservatives do not hold a majority in that chamber."

"Three Waynesboro police officers face a federal lawsuit after a mix-up that landed a man with a debilitating disease in a mental hospital. Gordon Goines of Waynesboro is also suing a clinician who allegedly misdiagnosed him. It's a case his attorney, John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute, says exposes a dangerous trend."

"Goines suffers from cerebellar ataxia, which is similar to ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. He called the police because he thought someone was stealing his cable and from there he found himself handcuffed and in isolation."

"'In effect, this man was punished for having a disease.' Whitehead stated." ...

"The gun used in the slaying of two New York City police officers was purchased at a Metro Atlanta pawnshop in 1996 and sold again in 1998."

"But that’s where the trail ends, said Assistant Special Agent in Charge Aladino Ortiz of the [ATF]. Because the nation has a patchwork of gun laws, and federal law bans the creation of a national registry of gun ownership, how felon Ismaaiyl Brinsley obtained the silver-colored Taurus 9-mm with a wooden handle remains a mystery."

"'We may never know how Mr. Brinsley got it into his hands,' Ortiz said Tuesday." ...

"Once again, a nameless attack on the Second Amendment graces your Forum's front page ... Lets start with the easy part. To actually blame an inanimate object for anything, is just plain ignorant. A gun is no different then a wrench in a tool box, it's a tool, and it needs to be picked up, and used, to be a weapon...which a wrench can be used for also." ...

"The suicides. It's disgraceful to even bring those up, but since you did, please tell me how these people would have not jumped, overdosed or slashed their way to death. Now, that leaves us with 90 more deaths. How many of those were the actions of gun owners, legally allowed to own a firearm, and using it to defend their lives, or those in their loved ones." ...
