Are open-carry advocates helping or hurting gun rights?

"The New York Times has a piece here about open-carry advocates. Most states have laws allowing gun owners to openly carry weapons in public, but it has the effect of, well, freaking some people out. In recent years, open-carry advocates have organized meetups where they'll all show up at a restaurant or coffee shop or what have you."

"They do this partly to show that, really, it's not a big deal -- mature, licensed gun owners are perfectly safe. Though some, the Times notes, are doing this because they can't get concealed-carry permits. In California, for example, acquiring a CCW permit takes some doing." ...
 

Safer Streets 2010: Safer Starbucks?

"The Brady Center ... has a March 8 piece turning up the heat on Starbucks yet again, or still. Why gun control activists are targeting Starbucks. Remember, that was their headline. This one is especially malicious and bitter.

Targeting is correct. It is an initiative move, it is aggressive, to be sure, and it is hostile. It picks a fight, which has some thinking what any real agenda of such pressure tactics is."

"The subtitle of the Brady commentary is The Brady Campaign is asking the chain to prioritize customer and employee safety, not take a position in America's gun debate."

"What do you think Starbucks is choosing? The chain is choosing customer safety and is not taking a position. It's position is to be neutral, but this isn't good enough to suit the anti-gun crowd. ..." ...

"Before we get really cranked up, remember that gun owners are also taxpayers, and that shooters, as well as every other 'interest group' traditionally support their lifestyle with what we call 'disposable income.'"

"That is, money not spent on household necessities and other bills can be used for recreational and personal purposes. The Washington Legislature appears to have reached a decision to have citizens here dispose of that income in the form of additional taxes. The Seattle Times reports that lawmakers claim a new $890 million tax package 'is centered on a temporary three-tenths-of-a-cent sales tax increase.'"

"Did anybody in the Evergreen State ever hear of a 'temporary tax increase'... " ...
 

Violent drug gangs on public land--still think self-defense not needed in national parks?

"On February 22nd, the federal prohibition against loaded firearms in national parks became relegated to part of our nation's shameful history of mandated defenselessness. Now, it's state law that determines the legality of carrying a firearm in our national parks."

"In the lead-up to this change, those who opposed it alternated (at dizzying speed) between hysterical speculation about the 'consequences' and contemptuous dismissal of the concerns of people foolish and paranoid enough to believe they would ever need a gun in a place as peaceful as a national park. The Violence Policy Center's Josh Sugarmann, for example, quoted a Park Service retiree:" ...

Supreme Court Takes Aim at Chicago Gun Ban

"It's rare for Supreme Court justices to rib their robed brethren in open court. But that's what Justice Stephen Breyer apparently had in mind when he said recently that the court's conservative bloc was advocating the very thing that conservatives have long reviled: judicial activism."

"The comment came last week during oral arguments in ­McDonald v. Chicago, a case over the legality of Chicago's handgun ban. Five justices appeared ready to strike down that ban, echoing a nearly identical 2008 case, Heller v. District of Columbia, in which the court threw out a ban in the nation's capital, citing the Second Amendment." ...

... "- Thanks to voter dissatisfaction, a record number of anti-gun incumbents in the North Carolina General Assembly have viable opponents;"

"- Meanwhile, the Democrat stranglehold on the NC Senate has self-destructed, but most importantly;"

"- The Supreme Court struck a blow for free speech by striking down the 'McCain-Feingold Act' that prevented GRNC from using organizational money to tell people what politicians have been doing to them."

"The result is a 'Perfect Storm' potentially enabling gun rights supporters to chart a course for at least the next ten years."

"But taking advantage of this 'Perfect Storm' requires money. Frankly, it requires your money." ...

"Proponents of social engineering frequently cite the Constitution as their justification for laws that intrude on personal liberties and the sovereignty of states. Yet they adopt a different stance when the nation's basic documents of government do not support them." ...

"The Supreme Court’s deliberation over a Chicago case might change the way the Constitution applies to state and local firearm bans." ...

"A common argument against applying the Second Amendment to personal carrying rights is that it will, in turn, infringe on another valued right."

"Summarizing the position, Pitts said, 'The Constitution protects the right to life, and people running around with guns threatens that.'" ...

Submitter's Note: Almost got it right. Criminals 'running around with guns' threaten lives, which is why the law-abiding need to carry the finest self-protection tool in existence, to wit: a gun.

"Well, McDonald v. Chicago – think of it as 'son of Heller v. Washington DC' in terms of its importance to Second Amendment rights – has been argued. I wish they had broadcast the argument in live feed: so much is lost when you only read the cold black and white print of the transcript, and can't catch all of the inflection in the voices, particularly the voices of the questioning Justices.
And why, with cases impacting literally life-or-death issues, are the advocates allowed only thirty minutes per side to argue their positions?" ...

"Those who would deprive American citizens of the right to protect themselves and their loved ones against criminals who are capable of killing them, are not handling their portending defeat well. According to 'the usual pundits,' the indications from the recent US Supreme Court arguments in McDonald v. Chicago are that SCOTUS is likely to soon confirm that, for all the states in the union and not just the District of Columbia, the right to keep and bear arms extends to all Americans." ...

"First, I picked up an old GI duffel bag, canvas, not nylon, with the single strap not the twin pack straps, for $2.99. Got a modern one in nylon, just like the photo above for the same price last week. (I gave that one to Pete)."

... "Like [Ann Woolner], I watch in amazement as more states enact laws allowing guns in bars, churches and schools, and the Supreme Court continues to strike down more city ordinances ... I'm curious how sincere our senators, representatives (at state and national levels) and Supreme Court justices really are regarding the unrestricted rights of citizens to bear arms."

"When those legislative and judicial bodies debate the issue, do they allow spectators to enter their chambers with weapons? ..."

"If those galleries are closed, then one has to question the sincerity of those Second Amendment fanatics." ...

"A bill that passed the state Senate last week asserts exemption from federal regulation for guns and ammunition manufactured, sold and used in Oklahoma. It is similar to one adopted by Montana last year."

"'Hopefully, it will do two things,' said the bill's author, Sen. Randy Brogdon, R-Owasso. 'It will help secure our Second Amendment rights and it will be a boon to economic development.'"

But one has to ask: do you really feel free anymore? Do you find yourself in public constantly wondering if you can cross the street here or there? Whether you can ride your bike on a sidewalk? The shoulder of the road? When you see a cop car in your rearview mirror, do you feel safer or do you get a short shot of adrenaline and start wondering what he could pull you over for? What’s your speed and what’s the speed limit? Did you signal when you changed lanes? I think we all know the answer to that question." ...
