... "The thing is, what I think, or what you think is a moot point as far as Saturday’s planned actions are concerned. Regardless of sentiments, fears, cautions and warnings, it’s 'Game on,' and the activists will not be deterred. This is the new paradigm all of us, but especially the 'gun groups,' need to get used to, because it effectively nullifies any 'compromises' some may be inclined to agree to. ..." ...

... "For starters, 'ownership' is a legal and moral term. There can be a big difference between a gun 'possessor' and a gun 'owner,' and a huge difference in terms of how the two groups behave."

"... While the 'reports' will start out talking 'gun deaths' to sway the headline surfers and the reading-challenged, it turns out what’s really being highlighted are 'rates.' And those hardly reflect real numbers to show where more people are being murdered by criminals with guns they obtained illegally." ...

"The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) and Smith & Wesson announced that the National Rifle Association will sponsor the awards banquet at the 2015 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals taking place later this month."

"'The shooting sports in America thrive today because of the great work of the [NRA]. Whether it’s promoting firearms safety, training legions of certified firearms instructors or fighting to protect every American’s second amendment rights, the NRA has proven over and over again it is the best friend a gun owner can have. And thanks to their generous sponsorship of our awards banquet, the NRA is also a great friend to both IDPA and Smith & Wesson,' said Joyce Wilson, executive director of IDPA." ...

"'I hate handguns. Handguns are used to shoot people and as long as they are around people will shoot each other. That’s a simple fact.' Those are not the words of Liam Neeson, the bankable action star whose recent anti-gun comments resulted in firearm maker PARA USA declaring that it 'will no longer provide firearms for use in films starring Liam Neeson' and calling on its 'friends in the firearms industry to do the same.' ..."

"But don’t expect a boycott of the upcoming Bond film Spectre by handgun maker Walther. ..."

"PARA USA’s boycott stunt is a hit with pro-Second-Amendment media and activists. But a stunt is all it is: gun makers have enjoyed a long and cooperative relationship with Hollywood. " ...

"Anyone having the audacity to use the term, 'Nazi' in the same sentence with New Jersey or any state in the U.S., is without a doubt, at the least afflicted with acute paranoia. To write, 'Nazi gun laws a model for New Jersey,' as stated by Mr. Bruce Eden in his Jan. 30 letter, is to ignore the simple fact that we are not living in Nazi Germany, but in the United States of America." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Bill Thompson of Piscataway then spends almost 800 words completely ignoring the 8 specific aspects of the "Nazi gun laws" mirrored in New Jersey's laws that Mr. Eden cited.

'At the same time, a bipartisan call in Congress for the U.S. to arm Ukraine was only growing, with lawmakers saying the military aid 'is past due.'

"Texas lawmaker says Second Amendment rights shouldn't stop at state lines. Senator John Cornyn is joining East Texas leaders and Second Amendment rights advocates Saturday to announce proposed legislation that would allow Texans with a concealed handgun license to carry legally in other states." ...

"Senator Cornyn wants CHL holders to be able to protect themselves when they travel to other states."

"'You'd like to think that what's legal in one state should be legal in another state,' says Dr. Lieberman."

"Some states just don't recognize Texas' CHL, but Senator Cornyn's proposed Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would fix that by requiring states to honor any other states' concealed carry permits." ...

"Anti-gun Congressional Democrats, led by Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (D-Conn.), yesterday filed what she described as the “eminently reasonable and incredibly important” federal legislation to limit firearm magazine capacity."

"The Hartford Courant called this legislation the first 'gun safety' bill filed in the new Congress. However, critics in the firearms community will quickly argue this has nothing to do with genuine 'safety,' but is merely an attempt to revive a gun control measure whose effectiveness may be questionable." ...

"New Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is asking for a state senate committee to put Senate Bill 11 up for a public hearing as soon as possible."

"The bill is also known as the campus carry bill. It would allow students and other licensed gun permit holders to have their weapons on them while on a college campus."

"Patrick said he's looking forward to senators quickly addressing what he calls a 'second amendment priority' -- making college campuses a place where gun permit holders can carry their handguns."

"The bill had a mixed reaction from UTEP students who spoke to ABC-7."

"'It is a right, but I think there is a time and place and I don't think the school is necessary to have a weapon,' said Marcia Alcantar." ...

"The Louisiana law aimed at removing guns from those convicted of domestic violence and copied in a South Carolina bill headed to the Senate floor has had little impact since its passage last year, according to some defense lawyers and prosecutors in that state."

"In fact, some prosecutors told The Greenville News, domestic violence cases have actually increased. And some problems have surfaced with the law, such as a lack of a uniform method for removing the guns from their owners and the failure of some convictions to make it onto a federal database used for background checks used for firearms purchases." ...

"Two years after Colorado tightened its gun laws in response to mass shootings at a Connecticut elementary school and a suburban Denver movie theater, newly empowered Republicans here at the State Capitol are trying to repeal those measures, reviving an emotional debate over gun violence."

"Once again, the legislature has become a stage for protests and wrenching testimony from families of people cut down by bullets. Lawmakers are sparring over Second Amendment freedoms and public safety, and arguing about the effectiveness of new measures that expanded background checks and reduced the size of ammunition magazines." ...

"The Garfield County Library board voted unanimously Thursday night to amend its regulations to ban open carry of firearms, but allow licensed concealed carry on library property. The decision was essentially the moderate option out of three approaches the library district could have pursued. The board could also have amended its current policy against weapons to read 'in accordance with state law,' which would allow both open and concealed carry, or else banned both open and concealed carry and put metal detectors and security in place." ...
