"H.R. 648 not only reaffirms many of my arguments but legislates reason. By congressional standards the bill is startlingly straightforward."

"It states that: 'A person not prohibited from receiving a firearm by Section 922(g) of title 18, United States Code, shall have the right to obtain firearms for security, and to use firearms -- in defense of self or family against a reasonably perceived threat of imminent and unlawful infliction of serious bodily injury; in defense of self or family in the course of the commission by another person of a violent felony against the person or a member of the person's family; and in defense of the person's home in the course of the commission of a felony by another person.' Not bad."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Regarding the editorial in the Feb. 6 Bee ("Rejected gun ban shows weak council leadership," Page B-4) that stated, "The reality is, its extremely unlikely that anyone will shoot a city leader in the council chamber": I'm sure former San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk would have welcomed the choice to carry a weapon that fateful day they were shot dead by Dan White.

"You've got to be kidding, right? Civil War re-enactment, cannons. Seems like you should just expect noise, doesn't it?"

"Donald Stahl and Fred Rosenlind should be ashamed for bringing this lawsuit against the city and Richmond Fayette Artillery Brigade. Cannons are loud. Stahl, as a Civil War buff, doesn't know this? What about Rosenlind, a member of the Stanislaus Civil War Association; doesn't he know?"

"Civil War re-enactments and cannons go hand in hand."

"...within days of introducing the Smith & Wesson 500 Magnum at an industry-wide trade show in Florida, an anti-gun Democrat promised to seek a nationwide ban on the product."

" 'It's hard for me to rationalize any particular need or purpose' for the 500 Magnum, said Rep. Danny Davis (D-Ill.). 'I think guns are made to kill people. That's my opinion.' "

"Asked if he would seek a nationwide ban on the 500 Magnum, Davis replied, 'Yes, indeed.' "

Did anyone elect this cowardly bonehead to legislate his opinions, or was he elected to support and defend the Constitution of the United States? That's the whole Constitution, not just the parts he doesn't fear.

"In the 43 other states in which some form of concealed carry is allowed, the facts are irrefutable -- crime never increases, and more commonly goes down sharply when concealed carry laws are reformed. Our Michigan neighbors are the latest to find a reduction in crime as a result of their passage of a concealed carry law. Ohioans are no less responsible than the residents of these other states."

"Groups and individuals opposed to the private ownership of firearms claim the American people do not have the 'constitutional right' to right to keep and bear arms because the purpose of the Amendment was to grant the several States the 'collective right"' to maintain armed militias. Those on the other side of the controversy ...assert that the American people have a 'constitutional right' to keep and bear arms... The purpose of this article is to show that both assertions are wrong..."

"Strangely, the voters love to hear of a reformer politician that will solve all the ills of government by spending more money on the problem and calling for more government oversight. How come most people don't see the absurdity of these types of proposed solutions to government caused problems. Certainly no one suggests the problem with organized crime is that it needs more money and bigger gangsters to solve the problems of organized crime."

"...my liberty is neither distinguishable nor alienable: Either I have liberty, or not. I don't have a certain liberty, and not others." ...

"Liberty is liberty qua liberty, and is not 'civil,' 'military,' 'political,' or otherwise. To accept that you have 'civil' liberties means to accept that you don't have other forms of liberty, which is the intention of the invalid phrase. Don't be sold on the false notion of 'civil' liberties."

"New Hampshire state law requires those selling firearms to know the purchaser, but Maine’s laws have no such requirement. A Mainer could legally sell a firearm to a total stranger."

What I Don’t Get About the Lott Controversy (Blog)

"However, it is my understanding (and I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong) that Lott provided all of his data and primary sources to anyone who asked for them. Analysts who used these data with Lott’s econometric specifications reached the same conclusions. Analysts who used these data with different econometric specifications ...sometimes reached different conclusions. Now, there’s a legitimate debate to be had on the appropriate specifications and statistical methods, but it’s a debate that was already going on prior to the survey controversy, and it’s not the kind of debate in which academic reputations are on the line. The point is that if Lott provided his data and sources to others, there’s no issue of fabrication here. If people want to refute Lott’s claims about concealed-carry laws, they’ll have to continue attacking his work on the merits. The survey fracas is not, or at least should not be, a silver bullet."

Just like gun-grabbing tyrants. Supplement ineffectual gun laws, which do nothing to stop crime, with more ineffectual gun laws, which will further arm criminals and disarm law-abiding citizens. They'll never learn, will they?
