... "Citing the entry categorizing Ukrainian gun laws as 'restrictive' ... that's still much better than the situation in Venezuela, where, thanks to edicts set in place by dead dictator Hugo Chavez, 'Only the state may possess 'weapons of war', including: cannon, rifles, mortars, machine guns, sub-machine guns, carbines, pistols, and revolvers, be they automatic or semi-automatic. Civilians are only authorized to hold .22 rifles and shotguns (repeating and hunting).'” ...

"Two pending criminal cases in Seattle – one reported yesterday by the Seattle P-I.com and the other from early last week on the Seattle Police Blotter – underscore the futility of so-called 'universal background checks' because the suspects in both capers have criminal records, and both cases involve guns that were not obtained through legitimate channels."

"Gun rights activists would quickly observe this is the rule rather than the exception in criminal activities across the country. See if the circumstances support that theory." ...

"In reality, these letters - 106 to rifle owners, and 108 more to residents with standard capacity magazines – are the first step in the Connecticut State Police beginning to round up guns arbitrarily made illegal last year in that state. These guns include America’s favorite rifle, the AR-15 and magazines over 10 rounds, which include the standard capacity magazines made for that America’s favorite rifle."

"Over the last 25 years, we have had related national debates over proposed federal gun-control laws designed to restrict access to certain firearms. But only one piece of major legislation has passed Congress, in the 1994 crime bill, and the electoral backlash against many of its supporters in the 1994 midterm elections convinced many Democrats inclined to support such restrictions to try to sidestep the issue."

"But Congress and the laws it passes are not the only determinants of facts on the ground. Starting with a Florida law in 1987, most states have passed concealed weapons laws, allowing law-abiding citizens who have had relevant training to obtain licenses to carry concealed weapons. ..." ...

"After reading the responses to Judy Aron's Feb. 16 article, 'Gun Control Sent Me Packing' [Opinion], I have some questions for the people criticizing her."

"Can anyone explain how registering firearm magazines would prevent a sociopath from murdering his mother and stealing her guns? Can anyone explain how banning assault weapons would help parents to recognize their son's mental health problems? We are told these are common-sense gun laws, but the police investigation on the Newtown attack reported it was an issue with the deteriorating mental health of the attacker, not a gun control issue."

"Common sense says that passing a law which does nothing to fix a problem is exactly the same thing as doing nothing to fix a problem." ...

"After violence erupted in Kiev on Feb. 18th, over 70 people died, many shot by government snipers. ... [T]he citizens and gun rights groups in Ukraine seem to believe they are held nearly captive to a government that retains 7 million weapons, while the citizenry has only 3 million, many of those illegally (compare that to the US where citizens privately hold 310 million firearms and police and military hold slightly less at 3.85 million)." ...

Even with the entire judicial system informing him that yes he really does need to respect all of the amendments to the Constitution and not just the fashionable ones, Don believes that it is his job to make it as hard and as tedious as possible for any one of his constituents to carry a gun. It’s an opinion that he made clear in a recent article, and which I will enjoy ripping apart for the next few minutes ..."
