"'Recently we've unearthed some sickening corruption in a nearby town and it's led to unlawful arrests and gun confiscations from two veterans that are also Oath Keepers,' a Friday Facebook message from James Franklin, Regional Director for Come and Take It Texas - West Texas Region, began. 'Over the past week this issue has gotten even more complicated as the police in the town refuse to file police reports about one of their residents making terroristic threats against our group's members.'"

"Franklin was referring to a local resident who opposes lawful open carry of long guns to the point of pledging to inflict harm on people he calls 'cowards.'" ...

"A new study by Northeastern University researchers of mass-murder trends shakes up a slew of liberal shibboleths regarding guns, background checks and the frequency of attacks. Indeed, findings by James Alan Fox, a criminologist, and graduate student Monica J. DeLateur tear asunder the 'solutions' of anti-gun zealots."

"That begins with the myth that mass murders (defined by the FBI as a single incident that claims four or more lives) are on the rise. They are not." ...

"The main concept of the Second Amendment is not simply the right to bear arms. It is to sharpen our civilized awareness of the implications of self-defense — nature’s fight or flight mechanism for primal survival."

"The real thrust of the Second Amendment reveals the right to self-defense, ostensibly by bearing arms, as the protector of our right to peace. The true hope of the Second Amendment is that peace will be the guarantor of self-defense." ...

"I’m all for American citizens having the right to own guns, but I have some thoughts about the Second Amendment and the ongoing discussion concerning the right to keep and bear arms."

"There’s no way the Founding Fathers could have envisioned what features firearms would eventually have — multi-round magazines, semi-automatic or fully automatic firing mechanisms — and the potential dangers associated with those and other features."

"Because of that, I’d suggest we maintain the right to keep and bear arms but limit the possession of them to the ones that were in existence when the Second Amendment was written in 1791. That is, muzzle-loading, black-powder flintlocks." ...

'Prior to the current ban on guns inside federal buildings, mass shootings at U.S. Post Offices were so frequent that the phrase 'going postal' became a popular way to describe workplace violence in America.' Which implies that 'going postal' has gone out of fashion because the gun ban was/is so effective. Yes, well, in 1972, the Postal Service enacted 39 C.F.R. § 232.1(l) ('USPS Regulation').

"Being a newspaper that has always believed in gun control, we share Conway's newfound desire to reduce gun violence, a cause he suddenly adopted after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school in December 2012. Conway and his Smart Tech Foundation last week unveiled some early designs for high-tech guns that only work in the hands of their owners, and which will notify those owners when someone has moved them."

"'Let's use innovation to bring about gun safety. Let's not rely on Washington,' Conway told the San Francisco Examiner, which put the story on its Jan. 29 cover."

"Part of the issue, as Slate has noted, is that it is almost impossible to track suicides using news media accounts — and suicides, according to the CDC, account for some 60 per cent of gun deaths.

Mostly we were trying to get a feel for the scale and scope of gun violence in America. A year later, it seems like a good time to take stock." ...

"A committee of the Missouri State Senate voted overwhelmingly last week for a bill aimed at making it a state crime for federal officials to enforce federal gun laws."

"There’s a name for this kind of thing — it’s called 'nullification' — and it’s long been a popular cause among conservative extremists, especially in the South. But it won’t soon become a statute in Missouri, where the governor vetoed a similar measure last year."

"Besides, this nonsense seems to be based on a misreading of the Second Amendment, the rights under which are not as broad as some people would like to think. And don’t just take my word for it." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Yep, the doctrine of nullification (and "interposition", but that's something for another article) were first championed (legislatively) by Virginia and Kentucky, in response to the (now viewed as grossly unconstitutional) Alien and Sedition Acts. However the concept later became popular later in the North and Midwest when fighting the various federal Fugitive Slave Acts.

"A blood-alcohol level above .17 percent qualifies as 'Super Drunk.' Under Michigan's Super Drunk law, penalties increase from up to 93 to 180 days of possible jail time and nearly double the court fines. ..." ...

"After the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary school, where 20 children and six adults were fatally shot, President Obama urged Congress to pass new federal gun control legislation."

"Democrats in Congress couldn't muster enough votes to oblige him.
In time, the Dec. 14, 2012, shooting faded from national headlines. But it remained on the minds of people in Newtown, Conn., and neighboring communities. Officials in Massachusetts, which already had some of the nation's toughest gun control laws, convened a panel of experts and asked them to recommend reforms that might prevent mass shootings."

"Those experts have now released their long-awaited report." ...

... "This is your standard reactionary nonsense, guaranteed to have no effect in a state that already boasts some of the strongest gun-control laws in the United States and designed primarily to make people who know nothing about firearms feel better about themselves. But it is what comes next that should horrify one and all — regardless of their politics:"
"It also said Massachusetts should require anyone wanting to purchase a hunting rifle or a shotgun to pass those standards of suitability. That could allow local police chiefs to deny gun purchases to people who have been arrested, but not convicted, of a crime." ...

"Did you know that the Second Amendment Protection Act was passed last year, protecting the sovereign right of Kansans to manufacture and possess firearms within Kansas without federal interference?"

"Did you know that the federal government is exerting its reach into more and more parts of our lives that are outside its constitutional function, and that further legislation is being considered to limit the federal government when it comes to environmental issues, health care issues, etc.?" ...

"Thanks for advertising on the front page that CSI is safe for any nut to go shooting students on campus! When are the newspapers going to wake up to how they contribute to the problem?"

"Something the liberal news media has forgot to tell you:"

"The Fort Hood killer was a registered Democrat. The Columbine shooters, too young to vote but their parents were registered Democrats and openly liberal. Virginia Tech murder wrote hate mail to President Bush. Colorado theater killer was a registered Democrat and a staff worker on Obama’s campaign and an Occupy Wall Street participant. The attacker of the school children in Newtown was a registered Democrat and hated Christians." ...

"A committee of the Missouri State Senate voted overwhelmingly last week for a bill aimed at making it a state crime for federal officials to enforce federal gun laws."

"The Second Amendment. Made in the USA. Jobs for Georgia. These are three of my favorite things."

"Thanks to local firearms manufacturer Daniel Defense, all three of these come together right here in the Savannah area. And with the recent news that Daniel Defense is expanding their Bryan County facility by adding 120 new jobs, there is even more to be happy about."

"Lest we take any of this for granted, I would like to take a moment to sing the praises of these three all American hallmarks and explain why Daniel Defense is vital to each." ...

... "All the amendments are subject to limitations, as in the First Amendment (one cannot shout 'fire' in a crowded theater). I believe that easily accessible firearms contributed to the massacres in Connecticut and Colorado. The right to bear arms should be appropriately limited." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. — Alexis de Tocqueville
