Ron Paul Talks About Gun Control

Tragically, over the Thanksgiving holiday, the world was reminded how evil and cruel people can be. According to emerging accounts of the events in India, about a dozen well-armed and devastatingly well-trained terrorists laid siege on the city of Mumbai, killing almost two hundred people, and terrorizing thousands.

Regardless of the reasons, the indiscriminate shooting on masses of unarmed and defenseless people is chilling and reprehensible. How were these terrorists able to continue so long, relatively unchallenged, killing so many?

India’s gun laws are her business, of course.

Two would-be burglars chose the wrong house to invade when they broke into an Inwood home early yesterday morning. They were greeted by the resident, who opened fire on them with his AK-47-style assault rifle, Nassau police said. It was 5:32 a.m. Sunday when the male resident, 36, "heard suspicious noises coming from the front door of his home, and armed himself with a Romanian SAR-1 rifle," a variant of the Soviet AK-47 assault weapon, a police report said. The two men "broke through the front door and were confronted by the victim, who shot four times toward the subjects," the police report said. The burglars ran off, apparently uninjured. One of the men appeared to have been carrying a knife, the resident reported.

We have been called "insurrectionists" by the prags (among other things). Insurrection, in case you were wondering, is defined as "an act or instance of rising in revolt, rebellion, or resistance against civil authority or an established government." The key word here, and the action which our opponents wish to impute to us is "rising." As in the Irish Easter Rising of 1916. That is, the unilateral assault of revolutionary forces upon a government at the time and places of the insurrectionists' choosing.

If you read Resolve, you wll see that this is not what I have in mind, summed up in the injunction, "No Fort Sumters."

Now I'm not one who believes that Obama is a Hitler, although I will say that the way he demonstrates his narcissism when the adulating crowd is screaming at him -- that chin-raised, head-nodding, soaking-it-all-in gesture that he shares with both Mussolini and Hitler -- is more than a little creepy. But . . If Obama tells us something like what is posted on his Transition website, we should believe him. The "pragmatists" may think they have the luxury of underestimating and disbelieving the President Elect. We do not. Some people can be taken at their spoken word. Not a politician. More credible is what they put down on paper. We should take Obama at his written word. He's coming for our property and our rights. Get ready.

The single-shot gun, dubbed the Palm Pistol, is "an adaptive tool that allows someone otherwise incapable of handling a revolver or semiautomatic weapon to operate one," said Matthew Carmel of Constitution Arms, the New Jersey-based company developing the gun.

Rights are not gifts from “God,” who demands payment for his generosity by calling for the continual violation of those rights. Nor are rights gifts from the state to be created or destroyed by majority vote, constitutional convention, or pragmatic jurisprudence. The source of rights is neither faith nor feelings but facts.

Individual rights are moral principles arising from the requirements of human life in a social context. In order for people to live, they must be free to think and act on their own judgment. Rights specify this fact and prescribe government protection for each individual against those who seek to infringe on his freedom.
 

Obama: Don't stock up on guns

"I believe in common-sense gun safety laws, and I believe in the second amendment," Obama said at a news conference. "Lawful gun owners have nothing to fear. I said that throughout the campaign. I haven't indicated anything different during the transition. I think people can take me at my word."

"We don't dispute [the gun sales hike] because the numbers from the federal system certainly confirm that there is increased activity out there. We just think it's a bit stupid," said Peter Hamm, spokesman for the Brady Campaign against Gun Violence.

"We don't think these are first-time buyers. We think they are people who already have more than enough guns at their homes to protect themselves and are buying more."

"Media giant Tribune Co., saddled with billions in debt since it became a privately held company last year, has hired bankruptcy advisers, according to its flagship newspaper, the Chicago Tribune.

The Chicago-based company owns a coast-to-coast empire with television stations and newspapers in most of the nation's largest cities. Its holdings include the Los Angeles Times; cable television super-station WGN in Chicago; the Baltimore Sun; and WDCW-50 in Washington, the CW affiliate. "

Submitter's note:
Looks like the anti-gunners' version of Pravda is going broke. Maybe the New York Izvestia Times can do the same soon.
 

UK: If each of us carried a gun . . . we could help to combat terrorism

For anybody who still believed in it, the Mumbai shootings exposed the myth of “gun control”. India had some of the strictest firearms laws in the world, going back to the Indian Arms Act of 1878, by which Britain had sought to prevent a recurrence of the Indian Mutiny.

The guns used in last week’s Bombay massacre were all “prohibited weapons” under Indian law, just as they are in Britain.

The Mumbai massacre also exposed the myth that arming the police force guarantees security.

Rhetoric about standing firm against terrorists aside, in Britain we have no more legal deterrent to prevent an armed assault than did the people of Mumbai, and individually we would be just as helpless as victims.

The defendant cannot use the right of self-defense if he or she was the aggressor — he or she voluntarily entered or provoked a fight by assaulting the victim, through language or by being mutually willing to fight, or leaves the fight and then returns to restart it.

If the defendant was the aggressor, he or she can still use the right to self-defense if he or she withdraws from the fight and tells the victim he or she is not going to fight anymore.

The jury must also look at the amount of force used.

Gun sales have been hitting all-time highs this holiday season in Jackson County and Oregon, propelled by fears that President-elect Barack Obama's administration will enact laws clamping down on assault rifles and ammunition.

The Oregon State Police reports that on Nov. 28 — the biggest shopping day of the year known as Black Friday — there were 2,198 background checks, 25 percent higher than the previous record on the same shopping day in 2005, when 1,731 checks were conducted.

At home, Tancredo lived six doors down from Columbine High School, but he resisted calls for stronger gun control after the nation’s deadliest high school shooting in 1999. ...

Here is a textbook example of the kind of subtle bias that drives conservatives crazy. ...

If a strong Second Amendment advocate would have written the story and flavored it with his/her bias it might have read like this: “Tancredo resisted calls for fewer gun control laws, which would have allowed teachers and students a chance to defend themselves, after the nation’s deadliest high school shooting in 1999.”

Obama Clashes with Santa on Gun Rights Christmas Card

Packing a holstered pistol on his belt, Santa Claus opposes President-elect Barack Obama over gun rights on an original Christmas card sent to members of Congress and others by right to self-defense advocate John M. Snyder of Telum Associates, LL.C.

Although Obama said last weekend that, 'lawful gun owners have nothing to fear' from his administration, the fact is that firearm owners are not so sure"


The card depicts Santa and Obama in caricature tugging against each other on opposite ends of a rope.


An image of the Supreme Court appears in the background, recalling the Court's holding last summer in District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms.
 

New Gun Aimed at Seniors (Photos) Self Defense With a Palm Pistol

The Palm Pistol looks a little like an inhaler and is designed for seniors that might have medical problems or other ailments that might prevent them from pulling the trigger of a normal gun. According to a report from Raw story, "Constitution Arms says its Palm Pistol will aid seniors with arthritis who would otherwise have trouble pulling the trigger.

Trend Hunter reports, "The Palm Pistol allows for a 9mm bullet to be stored in its chamber. And instead of pulling a trigger with the index finger to release a bullet, the Palm Pistol’s trigger is activated by pressing the thumb button on top."
 

CA: A Legal Explanation of the Plaxico Burress Situation

I have received several requests to write about the legalities associated with the Plaxico Burress situation. As most readers know, Burress is a wide receiver for the New York Giants who resides in Totowa, New Jersey allegedly shot himself accidentally with a handgun last Friday [November 28th] in a Manhattan, New York [County of New York, State of New York] nightclub. [I should add that in August and September, Totowa police responded to two domestic disturbance calls at the Burress household. At both times temporary restraining orders were issued that were later dismissed by state court but this could have gun implications.]
 

NJ: Law would limit firearm sales to 13 per year

A consequence of lax gun laws is the proliferation of violence and funerals, Atlantic City Councilman Bruce Ward said as he advocated for a bill Monday that would limit most New Jersey gun owners to buying 13 or fewer firearms per year.

Others said the proposal would do little to stem the flow of firearms to criminals from illicit sources.

The state Senate Law and Public Safety and Veterans' Affairs Committee approved the bill by a 3-2 vote. It now goes the full Senate. The Assembly approved a companion measure June 23 by a 47-28 vote with four abstentions.

Current state law does not limit firearm purchases.

This type of street justice sounds more like a Wild West shooting gallery and less of act of justice, in some cases. See this is the point all my gun friends start writing me to tell me to turn in my weapon and that I don't deserve to own my guns. Although I am making a sweeping generalization on all gun owners and NRA members, I am confident that NRA members are as clear about their rights in the moment of an emergency as a deer is clear that when they see a gun in the forest it means they better run fast. Folks you just don't get a mullet hair cut and not be ready to defend it. Meaning, guns serve one purpose and only one purpose and that is to be shot.
 

TX: Two very bad ideas surface for college campuses

Sometimes you encounter two ideas so bad that it's hard to tell which one is worse. Put them together and the overused "perfect storm" metaphor seems perfectly apt.

I'm no great fan of handguns, but the U.S. Supreme Court got it right recently when it ruled that the Second Amendment bestows a "personal right" to own a gun in our country. ...

...

Colleges are places where students try to negotiate equilibrium between preconceived notions and new ideas, and sometimes tension and stress are byproducts. Colleges are also places where professors have to make life-altering judgments about students' performance. The introduction of openly displayed ballistic force into this dynamic will change it in undesirable and dangerous ways.
 

MO: Concealed carry ban would make parks more dangerous

The debate about concealed carry in the parks ought to be over by now, but it has continued past its sell-by date -- fueled by unreasoned fear, lack of information and invalid arguments.
Advertisement

The latest of these comes from Andrew Friedhofen, who makes a classic "straw man" argument. This approach isn't meant to reveal truth. It's simply designed to try and win a debate -- without regard to reality.

Andrew maintains he's been accused of being "very negligent" for not carrying a concealed handgun in the park. I've followed the debate pretty closely, and I'm fairly certain that no such accusation has ever been publicly made by any parks ban opponent.

Always believe the opposite of what state officials tell you, and the corollary, always do the opposite of what they advise you. So, it's easy to know how to respond to the latest edict from dictator-elect Obama. He says: gunowners have nothing to fear from him, and therefore you should not stock up on guns and ammo.
