"Don't dance on our grave until you dig it." -- Mike Vanderboegh

Well, folks, I slapped some more gun grabbers who are making their naked desire desire for your liberty and property perfectly clear -- over at Buzz-Flash they're fairly slobbering. . . Note how they interpret the much-vaunted Heller decision, and especially in the counterpunch to my response how "Willy" uses one of Jeff Knox's replies to me . . . to indicate how we may be ignored and, of course, subsequently attacked. (Funny thing, Willy mistakenly attributes Jeff's words to his father Neal, thus indicating that he is at least old enough to know the difference. Is Willy a "progressive-pragmatist"? I'll leave you to judge.)

"In other words, the trappings of state authority are all it takes to elicit trust? That seems a heck of a way to observe an unalienable individual right that's specifically posted it off-limits to government infringement in 'the supreme law of the land,' don't you think?"

Blogger Mark Nickolas tries attacking the NRA for stating Obama is antigun: " ... During this Christmas season, the NRA has launched a phone banking fundraising effort, using robo calls attacks on President-elect Obama as their hook, arguing that Obama has a “scheme to ban guns." An obvious lie to anyone who knows Obama’s clearly stated position ..." Ok, Mark, here’s a partial list off the top of my head of the flaming antigunners Obama has nominated for positions in his administration: White House Chief of Staff - Rahm Emanuel, ATF - Eric Holder, Secretary of State - Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Health and Human Services - Tom Daschle

"I had a letter to the editor published in today's Inquirer. I responded to a letter arguing fallaciously that second amendment rights are limited to militia service. Here's my letter:"...
"Consider this: 'A well-educated workforce being necessary to the prosperity of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed.' Would this limit book ownership only to those who are employed or only to the context of employment? Clearly not. As Justice Scalia put it in the Heller decision, the militia clause announces the purpose of the amendment without limiting the scope of the right."
"I've been mulling over the 'well-educated workforce' argument for a while now. ..." ...

... "I was 16 years old when I received my first firearm, a .45 auto. It came with a Colt slide and an aluminum frame the make of which has long since been forgotten."

"I enjoy taking things apart to see how they work so one of the first things I did was completely disassemble the big forty-five. ... I could field strip and re-assemble the gun with my eyes closed. I was quite pleased with myself."

"The first firearm I purchased when I turned 17 was an old Mossberg M-151 with the Mannlicher style stock. I paid $75.00 for it."

"Times certainly have changed since then. I recall that I hitched a ride home, some 15 miles away, carrying my new rifle. Further, there was no background check or waiting period for rifles at that time." ...

This hilarious fake prototype of a gun with an old-school Nokia phone built into the handle is what StrategyPage.com calls "The First and Second Amendment Combined."

I don't even own A gun (let alone many guns, which would necessitate an entire rack) but if I did, I'd want some sort of cell phone built into it – preferably a smart phone. Otherwise, it's like, how many things do I have to carry around in my pockets all the time? I've got my keys, my phone, my gat – something's gotta give. We can't all be famous athletes wearing baggy sweatpants, shooting ourselves in the leg inside a crowded nightclub.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Two people remain on the loose after an attempted mugging at Fashion Square Mall Tuesday night.

Police said a woman got off a bus at a stop near the Bank of America at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. The woman was walking across the mall parking lot, when three men, including one armed with a handgun, tried to rob her.

A bystander saw what was happening, pulled out his own gun and exchanged gunfire with one of the muggers.

The suspects ran, but one was later caught. That suspect was wounded, but did not realize it until police caught him.

The suspect's injuries were not life-threatening.

The mugging victim was not injured.

Plaxico Had More Guns

Good for Plaxico. Football fans might recall that Washington Redskin Shawn Taylor was murdered in his home last year by an armed invader who was obviously preying on a wealthy celebrity athlete. Had Shawn Taylor protected himself and his family with firearms he'd be alive today and the human trash that shot him would be dead.

What an atrocity that the government has publicized the fact that they have totally disarmed Plaxico Burress, leaving him and his family as sitting ducks for criminals looking to loot another wealthy celebrity.

"Despite Mayor Bloomberg's political grandstanding and calls for him to get the maximum sentence ... and a publicity-conscious District Attorney looking to set him up as the poster-boy for illegal hand gun possession in hopes of warding off others who would conceal an illegal weapon, the most important argument Plaxico Burress' attorney must make in his defense is that his client was carrying the gun for self-defense, and believed he was at risk of serious injury or death, the very real dangers a star professional athlete faces every day on the streets of New York, according to Steve Brill, a prominent New York criminal and illegal hand gun possession defense attorney." ...

"Myron Pitts' recent commentary 'Owing a gun not always key to safety' (Dec. 4) is fundamentally dishonest. It shows his bias against firearms ownership and the individual's God-given right as set forth in the Second Amendment."

"Pitts takes the high-profile sensational headlines to assume there is 'a spike in tragic or crazy stories about guns.' ..."

"Pitts dishonestly contends 'for every conscientious gun-owner, there are probably three who don't know what the heck they're doing.' According to www.GunFacts.info, there are '228,000,000 firearms and 207,754,000 automobiles, yet you are 31 times more likely to be accidentally killed by a car than a gun.'" ...

"The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan said, 'Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.' Your [Dec. 11] editorial, 'Illegal guns,' not only was poorly reasoned but implied a key fact opposite the truth."

"It omitted that the 'New Jersey criminal' you mentioned was apprehended, prosecuted, convicted and is now serving a 15-year sentence for violating existing gun laws. A reader unfamiliar with the whole story could easily conclude that this criminal suffered no sanction for unlawfully traveling from New Jersey to West Virginia and buying 22 handguns for resale to fellow criminals in New Jersey." ...

"You can't make this stuff up. Mayor Danny Jones wants tougher gun control laws and this newspaper is leading the battle cry again. I don't understand why the mayor doesn't enforce the gun control law that is in place. Charleston ordinance 4982, also known as the Charleston Handgun Control Ordinance, is not being enforced. I encourage the mayor to read the ordinance."

"... it appears to me that the ordinance explicitly prohibits any person from selling any handgun without first obtaining the blessing of the Charleston city police. If, as your editorial professes, more gun crimes are committed with handguns from West Virginia than from any other state, I think the mayor needs to explain why he is not enforcing this ordinance. ..." ...

"In an effort to curb gun and gang violence in L.A., the city council approved a ban on .50-caliber ammunition for assault rifles, which police say can shoot down helicopters, as well as large mythical beasts."

"'Unless you are out trying to kill Godzilla ... there's no need for this type of weapon in an urban environment,' police Chief William Bratton said ..."

"... The new ordinances ... [ban] the installation of secret gun compartments in vehicles, and [require] bullets to be purchased in person rather than by Internet or mail order." ...

"'This is not about the Second Amendment or the rights of law abiding gun owners,' Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said. 'This is about the safety of our kids.'" ...

Normally, that wouldn't be a problem, except that one of the police officers had left the backyard gate open. The dog ran out, and down Peeple's driveway toward the officers, at which point they shot it three times. Even the police concede the dog never attacked. They shot it as it was running toward them."

"It only gets worse from there. The police then arrested Peeples on the charge of assault with a deadly weapon—the weapon being his now dying dog. Peeples says they then euthanized his dog, despite his explicit instructions not to." ...

"Hunters killed 16,382 deer on December 20-21, during the weekend of gun hunting, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife."

"The extra weekend of gun hunting was first offered in 2006 in response to hunters' request for additional weekend days to pursue white-tailed deer, the state's number one big game animal. In 2007, hunters took 17,710 deer during those two days, but icy conditions and an arctic wind was likely a deterrent factor for many hunters who still had tags to fill this year." ...

"The NSW government has announced a three-month amnesty for unregistered and unlicensed firearms in a crackdown on gun crime across the state."

"But the initiative has been criticised by the opposition and a gun control expert." ...

"... the proposed amnesty would not significantly impact on the number of illegal guns in NSW, said Philip Alpers, an adjunct associate professor at the University of Sydney's School of Public Health." ...

"'Nobody pretends, even the police don't pretend, that they're bringing in the guns they want.' [said Alpers]"

"'The guns that they really want are the ones held by criminals, and if you're a criminal an illegal gun is the most valuable thing you can have.'" ...
