"Late on the evening of Day Two of the SHOT show, I was met by several members of the gun industry and asked to have a private and serious discussion on the Second Amendment March. They shared with me concerns that the march would fail, and that, in the process, I would weaken the gun rights movement. I listened with gritted teeth as they told me that the time was not right for a march of this type, and that the gun owners of our country would not follow it. They reasoned that I had less than 100 days to earn all the money needed and that I would never make it. Inside, I was furious. Outside, I remained calm and listened to everything they had to say." ...

"Modern debates about the meaning of the Second Amendment have focused on whether it protects a right of individuals to keep and bear arms or, instead, a right of the states to maintain militia organizations like the National Guard. This question, however, was apparently never even discussed for a long time after the Bill of Rights was framed."

"The early discussions took the basic meaning of the amendment largely for granted and focused instead on whether it actually added anything significant to the original Constitution. The debate has shifted primarily because of subsequent developments in the Constitution and in constitutional law." ...

He was lawfully armed with two guns. The network awkwardly cropped video of the man so tightly it was impossible to see his skin. MSNBC's Contessa Brewer said: '... there are questions about whether this has racial overtones. I mean, here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns ...'"

"A colleague then explained how the armed man reflects 'the anger over a black man becoming president.'"

"Later this month, national park rules will change dramatically, and for the better ... when it will become legal for park visitors to pack firearms for personal protection in accordance with state laws in which a specific park is located."

"Here in Washington State, that will mean licensed concealed or unlicensed open carry, and there might even be an exception to that, since Washington statute clearly exempts people from the requirement of having a concealed pistol license if they are engaged 'in a lawful outdoor recreational activity ... or is traveling to or from a legitimate outdoor recreation area.'"

"Otis McDonald, 76, says he needs a handgun to defend himself in his Chicago neighborhood. So in April 2008, the retired maintenance engineer agreed to serve as the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging Chicago’s 28-year-old handgun ban. Soon after, he walked into the police department, and, as his attorneys had directed, applied for a .22-caliber Beretta pistol, setting the lawsuit into motion. When that case is argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 2, McDonald will become the public face of one of the most important Second Amendment cases in history, says the Chicago Tribune." ...

The 14th Amendment happens to be one of my favorite amendments. It ... helped the Civil Rights Movement achieve significant victories over Jim Crow in the '50s and '60s."

"Now, according to the Goldwater Institute, the 14th Amendment's gonna let me buy my first nuke.

"Arroyo ... went to Albany last year with New Yorkers Against Gun Violence to lobby legislators to tighten gun laws and get firearms off city streets."

"For her, the issue was personal - just weeks before, her 17-year-old friend Tay was shot to death when an argument among a group of teens got out of hand and someone pulled out a gun." ...

KABA Note: Since 21 is the minimum age for a handgun permit in NYC, we can only assume that Kristine wanted lawmakers to make teen possession of a handgun doubleplusunlegal.

... "In those decisions reducing the constitutional role of the jury and arrogating to courts themselves greater control of jurors than the Constitution permits, modern federal judges have assigned the ugly name 'nullification' to the jury's exercise of discretion - a word having negative connotations dating back to some juries' post-Civil War harsh treatment of minorities. A more apt word for modern juries' exercise of their constitutional power to soften the application of overly harsh laws in specific cases would be 'rectification.' Exercise of this corrective power relies on the jury's historic role, going back to Colonial times, of bringing the law as applied into better accord with current community human considerations." ...

The Second Amendment never sounded so good. In lieu of police layoffs and having fewer officers on Tulsa streets, more people are applying for a concealed carry license.

However, the look of students signing up is changing, because more women are enrolling. In the last decade, weapons instructor, Robert Welch says female enrollment has tripled.

"they need it more than us guys do," said Welch." "This is about personal self defense."

Welch said obtaining a concealed carry license is fairly simple. Students must attend an eight hour course, which covers how to use a gun. Upon completion, students must then apply for a license. Approval could take up to 90 days. Licenses are valid for five years.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. Indeed I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order. — Adolf Hitler, April 11, 1942. (Source: "Hitler's Table-Talk at the Fuehrer's Headquarters 1941-1942", Dr. Henry Picker, ed. (Athenaeum Verlag, Bonn, 1951).)
