"Demonstrating that the 'gun lobby' is not the monolith the media often portrays it to be, Alan Gottlieb of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms announced his organization 'would be eager to talk with the White House, especially about the 'Project Gunrunner' and 'Fast and Furious' scandals, where federal agents helped facilitate gun sales to suspected gunrunners.'"
"Gottlieb said it seems odd that neither CCRKBA nor its sister organization, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), had been invited to the table despite the president's desire to open a dialogue with gun rights advocates." ...

... "So based on the say-so of someone with strong emotional, legal and financial interests, the state can remove not just property, but a basic liberty? Without having to prove anything? And registration enables them to do that, at least to people who have shown an inclination to obey the law? And they require, according to a Sheen Tweet '50 cops' to do it?" ...

"We read your editorial submission to the Arizona Star. However, to focus a national dialogue on guns — and not criminals or mental health issues — misses the point entirely. Americans are not afraid of gun ownership. To the contrary, they overwhelmingly support the fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms. The primary reason why tens of millions of Americans own firearms is that they fear violent criminals roaming the streets undeterred." ...
 

“Newsweek” Attempts to Rebrand Gun Control Scheme as “Gun Safety” Cause: Tina Brown Gets Cute, Right Out of the Gate.

"Tina Brown, the newly-minted British ex-patriot Newsweek editor-in-chief, certainly isn’t wasting any time promoting her agenda. By now it’s pretty old news that the anti-gun/anti-Second Amendment crowd ... has been trying to use the Tucson active shooter situation to get new gun control laws passed, like a high-capacity magazine (not 'clip') ban and a new federal assault weapons ban (AWB). It’s par for the course, really, and to be expected. However, Newsweek just did something sneaky. In a call-to-arms (excuse the pun)-style pro-gun-control opinion piece, two of its writers ... attempted to rebrand gun control as 'gun safety' ..." ...
 

Gun control legislation needs to be a reality

"The first time I put a car in gear, having just gotten my learner’s permit, my dad looked at me and said, 'This car is a weapon. It can kill people.' Comparing an automobile to a weapon makes sense — in 2007, about 37,000 people in the U.S. died from vehicular accidents; that same year, 31,000 people in the U.S. died from gun violence. But if fatalities from gun violence and car accidents are so comparable, why is it much more difficult to obtain a valid driver’s license in this country than it is to own a gun?" ...

Submitter's Note: Perhaps because buying a gun vs. getting a driver's license is not a valid comparison.

"North Carolina can't keep drunks from driving and killing people. Why in the heck would it open the door for drunks to pack handguns in restaurants?"

"That's the question we have to ask in light of a bill supported by some House Republicans that would allow people with concealed-handgun permits to pack their guns while eating in restaurants that serve booze, as long as no conspicuous prohibition is posted. ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Unmentioned in this piece is the fact that the law would still prohibit alcohol consumption by permit holders.

Self-Defense Rights “Truth Rally” to Be Held in Downtown Los Angeles on March 16, 2011

"CCRKBA (Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms), SAF (Second Amendment Foundation), and the Calguns Foundation are holding a press event and 'truth rally' to counter Mayor Bloomberg and MAIG’s (i.e., 'Mayors Against 'Illegal' Guns') most recent disinformation campaign.

"Instead of debating the actual issues, Mayor Bloomberg is apparently trying to subvert the American democratic process by sending a 'billboard truck' to major cities across the country to promote the bald-faced propaganda that firearms are a net 'social cost,' and not the real truth that firearms are a net 'social benefit.'" ...
