Take Your Country Back.. or Do as Barack Says

Facebook shut down the pages of many gun groups last week. That hurt our ability to speak and associate with others. It alienated millions of people. Why would a company deliberately alienate its customers?

It has long been recognized that the power to tax a business gives the government the power to destroy that business. What we see today is that the power to regulate a business is also the power to control it.. and its customers.

The Facebook ban smells of anti-gun politicians. They've done this before. Follow the regulations and you'll see how.

A gun manufacturer in India has claimed that its latest design is the absolute lightest of any self defense revolver on the market, short of derringers and other very small firearms. The state-owned Ishapore Rifle Factory recently unveiled the 8.8-ounce “Nidar,” which boasts a capacity of eight .22 rounds. The barrel length of the tiny gun is only 1.58 inches, with a total length of just 5.5 inches overall. Ishapore is marketing the revolver as a light, easily concealable self defense weapon for women.

Charged with first-degree assault with a deadly weapon and fourth-degree assault for punching a young woman in the face, Ha claimed self-defense — and was found not guilty by a King County jury on Jan. 15.

The same jury also returned a special verdict, rendering a somewhat rare finding that Ha used lawful force to defend himself. That finding means he is eligible to be reimbursed by the state for the roughly $40,000 his family spent on his criminal defense.
 

Common Misconceptions About Rights

A right is something everyone has by virtue of their humanity. Rights derive from the“Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,” as stated in the Declaration of Independence, and predate all governments as the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed in District of Columbia v. Heller (June 2008). The Second Amendment uses the term “people” not “citizens” to remind us of the universal nature of this right. The fact that some governments do not honor this or other rights is immaterial to their possession.

Cosmo: Pro-Gun Arguments Are Just ‘Gunsplaining’

Cosmo likes it’s readers slutty and defenseless. The same publication that features “13 Naughty Sex Games You Need to Try” and “Lost Your Valentine’s Day Underwear? Uber will Deliver a Fresh Pair” is advising women to fear men who own guns, while ignoring women’s ability to arm themselves.

Over the course of three separate articles, the magazine incapable of embarrassment treats the Second Amendment like an embarrassing personal issue and veers into PC buzzword land. A “gunsplainer,” as defined by Cosmo, is, “Someone (usually, although not always, a guy) who buys into myths propagated by the gun lobby. A small-but extreme-subset of gun owners that dominates conversations on gun violence.”
 

‘Gun ownership not a disease’ says 2A advocate as push continues for CDC studies

The last line of a story on so-called “gun violence research” appearing Wednesday afternoon on the Seattle Times website may explain why the continued push to restore federal funding for such research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is such a sticking point with Second Amendment advocates.

Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, summed it up in six words. “Gun ownership is not a disease,” he told the newspaper.

However, having a firearm in an emergency just might be the kind of “first aid” that saves the day. If criminal violence is a plague, legally-armed citizens just might provide an antidote.

I am writing in response to David Codrea’s comments to my article entitled “Vote NO On The Recall of Grover Norquist From NRA Board” published on AmmoLand News February 10th, 2016.

I deeply respect Mr. Codrea and his work in exposing the BATFE’s misdeeds in the Fast and Furious scandal, and his other writings. But I strongly disagree with his suggestion that the NRA should focus on issues other than the Second Amendment.

Michigan residents could carry concealed handguns without a permit under a recently proposed package of four bills.

After previously failed attempts to pass similar legislation, the lawmakers “started from scratch and proposed what we believe is the best language,” said co-sponsor Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Larkin Township. More so now than any time in recent history, people face a threat to personal and public safety, Glenn said.

“The more law-abiding citizens who are armed and able to defend themselves and those around them, the better,” Glenn said.
 

TN: Designating M82 as official state rifle is bad idea

Tennessee could make history if the Senate joins a House vote from April 2015 designating the Barrett M82, a sniper rifle, as the state’s official rifle. For those who may not know, the Barrett Firearms Manufacturing company is located in Christiana, which is just outside Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Tennesseans believe strongly in the Second Amendment, and as other states have tightened requirements to buy, own or manufacture guns, Tennessee has increasingly welcomed gun manufacturers to the state and has devoted considerable attention to permitting guns in state parks and even on college campuses.

Barack Obama thought he could get a cheap “bipartisan” victory over the “gun lobby.”

But after a blow-up in the Senate Republican caucus, Obama’s anti-gun sentencing bill might not be on the fast-track the way he was hoping.

In recent years, women are the fastest-growing demographic segment of the firearms market, especially when it comes to handguns. They’re also making huge inroads into the shotgun and modern sporting rifle markets. Once stereotyped as a “man’s world,” the shooting sports have gone co-ed, and many women find a great deal of joy and empowerment in shooting with their friends at the range, taking classes, in competition shooting, and providing providing their family with naturally- raised, hormone-free meat through hunting.
 

CT: Taking aim at gun laws

The U.S. Supreme Court is being asked to review lower court rulings that upheld the sweeping gun laws enacted in response to the deadly school shooting in Newtown as constitutional.

Lawyers for groups supporting gun rights, pistol permit holders and gun sellers filed a petition to the Supreme Court to entertain an appeal of the rulings by a U.S. District Court Judge and the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League announced the petition had been filed in a news release issued Thursday. It is one of the plaintiffs that is challenging the gun laws.
 

MS: Guns in church don't bother me

So Rep. Andy Gipson's bill, the Mississippi Church Protection Act, doesn't really bother me that much. Guns are not outlawed in churches today, and this bill changes nothing about that. What the bill actually does is provide immunity to anyone who shoots and kills someone while defending a church.

I'm not a huge proponent of the Castle Doctrine, which this bill extends. I think laws allowing self defense of your person or others provide ample protection for people. The justice system is designed to be fair and provide equal protection under the law. It's imperfect, but in cases of self defense, as we've seen, our nation's justice system most assuredly errs on the side of the one claiming self defense.

Academia is generally viewed as a liberal bastion, but one survey finds that despite their broad political leanings, college professors who have studied the impact of guns on society believe ownership of firearms makes the country safer.

The academic survey by Gary A. Mauser, a professor at Canada’s Simon Fraser University Beedle School of Business, and U.S. economist John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, finds that the attitude of academics actually corresponds with that of the general public.

V.I. residents will be able to own Tasers and other electric stun guns, after taking a safety course through the V.I. Police Department, if a bill approved in committee is enacted into law.

Sen. Nereida "Nellie" Rivera-O'Reilly introduced the bill, [Bill 31-0141] sponsored by Sen. Sammuel Sanes, saying she had considered getting a small electric stun device for self-defense and found out they are against the law.

Mayor Steve Noble said Friday that a shooting range proposed for a building in Midtown should not be allowed because it would violate a 32-year-old city law.

In an email, Noble outlined the 1984 law that his administration believes would prohibit the range at 90 Prince St.

“It is my position that we will adhere to our own law until such time that the Common Council changes the law,” said Noble, who previously said he was noncommittal about the proposal..

Analysis of mass shooting data going back to 2002 shows that 2nd Amendment supporters are totally correct in asserting that gun-free zones welcome attacks from cowardly murderers.

The analysis, conducted by the Heritage Foundation based on mass shooting data from Stanford, suggests that places with federal, state, local and private gun-free policies are more than twice as likely to be targeted by mass shooters.

South Dakotans can now legally carry concealed weapons in Nebraska.

Nebraska is the third state, in addition to Minnesota and Nevada, to recognize the enhanced concealed carry permit.
 

TN: Tenn. constitutional crisis over Legislative Plaza gun issue?

Some say it’s nothing short of an unexpected constitutional crisis on Tennessee’s Capitol Hill, and it’s causing at least one legislative staffer to officially push back.

The speakers of the state House and Senate say the Tennessee state constitution gives them the right to allow permit holders to carry handguns in what’s called Legislative Plaza.

Governor Bill Haslam says one of his departments makes that decision by statute or law.

Who’s right is a standoff that flared up Thursday with no end in sight.
