... "This action brings to a close one chapter of a story Gun Rights Examiner has been following since August of 2012, when it was first reported how ATF revocation actions were in defiance of policy and law. Follow-up reports detailed how ATF was creating a legal injustice for Brink’s, how the company was forced to turn to the courts to protect itself, and how 'serious inconsistencies' in inspections and application of rules were exposed. If left to stand, the revocation would have had a devastatingly costly effect on the ability of Brink’s to buy guns at volume and equip its 220 branches across the country." ...

... "As Governor Malloy's volunteer hatchet man on the forcible disarmament of the Connecticut citizenry, it is appropriate that I write you directly on some issues raised by your personal collectivist appetites for control of your fellow citizens' liberty, property and lives, if for no other reason than to politely explain some ramifications of that dictatorial compulsion under the Law of Unintended Consequences and the principles of 4th Generation Warfare, under which the civil war that you seem eager to solicit will likely be fought. This is only good manners, I feel, and since the subject is rather vast will certainly take more than one letter. However, I trust that as a tyrannical collectivist in good standing you recall Ho Chi Minh's dictum:
"'Cherish your enemies for they teach you the best lessons.'" ...

"The numbers just don’t add up for gun control supporters. Based on media coverage of shootings, gun violence and violent crime in general, it would be easy for the average American to think that violent crime, and specifically violent crime involved firearms, is on the rise."

"However, the real numbers say the exact opposite. According to a report by the Department of Justice, homicides involving firearms are down 39% between 1993 and 2011. The report also states that 'nonfatal firearm-related violent victimization against persons aged 12 or older' is down a whopping 70%." ...

"'In order to achieve national standards for gun control our leaders cannot continue to frame the issue in terms of political expediency,' Marda Dunsky writes at aljazeera.com. 'As a people, Americans cannot continue to frame the issue in terms of narrowly defined freedoms. We have to think the unthinkable and recast the gun-control debate in personal terms: As things stand now, almost any of us can find ourselves in a nightmare scenario in almost any public place at almost any time. The statistical probability of that happening is not what matters. What matters is that it can and does routinely happen in the kind of ordinary places that most of us frequent.'

Even compliance with Connecticut 'assault weapon' ban not enough for gun-haters

"The anti-gun jihadists of the Connecticut government, who boast that the state's ban of so-called 'assault weapons' (recently upheld as 'Constitutional' by a federal judge despite his admission that the banned firearms and magazines are 'in common use,' ...) is now the most draconian in the nation, are not satisfied with mere compliance with every detail of the law. They demand abject, terrified worship of the law. This is illustrated by comments made in response to resident gun manufacturer Stag Arms' attempts to gain clarification from the Connecticut State Police on whether or not the company's new design for a .22 Long Rifle caliber rifle would meet the state's oppressive requirements." ...

"We are known as the Land of the Free. People from far away places dream of coming to this very country for that exact reason. I know my family did. Because of the issues America is dealing with now, that vision of a free land is no longer. The Government of the United States came up with a plan called 'gun control' and that threatens our right to possess firearms. Our right to bear arms should not be touched by the government because, an act like that, attacks the individual as well as the people overall. It is counterproductive and must not come into play for the sake of the people involved and the future generations." ...

"There’s no denying there’s a lot of interest in G2 Research’s new R.I.P. Ammunition. Their marketing video has gone viral, with well over 1.5 million views as of the time of this writing. And even the mainstream press has picked up and run with the story of the new, amazing, superty-duper ammo that is 'like no other projectile the world has ever seen.' The company has been making some very bold claims about the performance of this new round. And when we didn’t have any ammo to test, we were able to use some elementary deductive skills and basic logic (along with some junior-high-school math) to determine that some of their marketing claims were, to put it kindly, hogwash. ... Things are different now, though . . ." ...

Gun laws eliminate the people who aren’t qualified to possess a gun. People who aren’t qualified could have mental issues or a history of criminal acts. They help protect citizens from people like [name redacted], who went into a movie theater, on July 20, 2012 and shot and killed 12 people, and injured 58 ...

"When politicians attempt to ban things via regulations and taxes, weird results usually follow. In the case of automatic firearms, the stage was set by the enactment of the bizarre National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934, which was upheld by the infamous U.S. v. Miller decision. Under the NFA, full-auto firearms have to be registered with the federal government and a $200 tax paid. The 'tax' at the time of enactment was the equivalent of $4,000 today, on items that varied in value from 1/10th the amount of the tax to roughly same amount for a Thompson sub machine gun . . ." ...

"'In February of 2012, 11 months before the state passed their stringent gun law known as the NY SAFE Act, a hotline was set up for people to call who thought they knew someone that possessed an illegal gun,' cbsalbany.com reports. 'If a person was arrested and convicted the tipster would receive a $500 reward.' So how’s that whole gun snitch thing workin’ out for ya? . . ." ...

"Dear Editor: Over the past week, Delegate Randy Minchew took two appalling votes that would undermine local law enforcement’s ability to protect our community and eliminate sensible gun safety measures."

"The first bill Minchew supported would remove local law enforcement’s discretion to approve Class 3 firearms purchases, even if they think the purchaser may commit a crime. The definition of Class 3 firearms in this bill includes not only machine guns, rifles and shotguns, but also bombs, grenades, and rocket launchers." ...

Submitter's Note: So do cops use tea leaves, Tarot cards or crystal balls to determine if "the purchaser may commit a crime"?

"Obviously, the gun owners who wrote the Another Voice, 'Responsible gun owners support the SAFE Act,' do not get it. Personally, it’s not about guns and hunting. It’s about keeping your oath. In 1972, I swore to an oath on a Bible. It was administered by the late Rep. Jack Kemp at the Federal Building. Kemp personally shook my hand and thanked me for serving this country." ...
 

CA: Microstamping won’t be deterrent to criminals (third letter)

... "Microstamping is just another in the death-by-a-thousand-cuts program by the left wing to deprive law-abiding gun owners of their Second Amendment rights, under the guise of making it more difficult for criminals to commit crimes with guns."

"Identifying the owner of the gun that fired a given cartridge does not solve the crime. It tells nothing about who fired the gun, which might have been borrowed or stolen. Most drive-by shootings are done with rifles, not pistols. Criminals will be more apt to use revolvers rather than pistols since the shell casings remain in the gun, making microstamping useless. If a pistol is used, the spent cartridge(s) can be picked up and taken away." ...

"When Dick Metcalf's association with many shooting publications was terminated and Guns and Ammo editor Jim Bequette was replaced last December, it was predicted at the time that the gun-controllers and the looney left would waste no time using Metcalf's statements to further their agendas." ...

"Metcalf attempted to argue that the phrase 'well-regulated militia' ... referred to---and justified---governmental restrictions, as in 'laws' or 'rules and regulations.'"

"From Metcalf's version of 'well-regulated' it is only a small jump to gun registration, followed by confiscation ..."

"Bequette failed to correct Metcalf's misconception despite having months in which to do so, and ran the article as-written." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. — Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
