... "I am totally for gun control in the U.S.,' the actor, who became a citizen over five years ago declared while plugging an earlier shoot-‘em-up and decrying the number of guns owned in the country that took him in. 'I’ll give Britain its dues, when they had the Dunblane massacre in Scotland, within 24 hours the gun laws were changed so you could not have a handgun.'" ...

... "Still, if nothing else, this shows the effects of high-profile influence on getting NRA’s attention and eliciting some kind of action out of Fairfax. Back when there was a much clearer case for ridding the association of a subversive member who was in demonstrable violation of its bylaw-defined eligibility criteria, NRA refused to respond to a rules-compliant request to expel anti-gun propagandist Michael Moore. NRA management ignoring that request was also a violation of the bylaws, but they could get away with it due to the limited venue the complaint was effectively buried in. Beck has a much more amplified voice, as evidenced by all of the related reports qualifying for the Google news feed." ...

"While political attention in the United States last week was focused on Hillary's emails and the Republican Party's attempts to derail nuclear negotiations with Iran, the [NRA] enjoyed yet another victory."

"This time America's most powerful lobby group managed to block a move to ban the free sale of armour-piercing bullets for handguns."

"The so-called green tip ammunition – which is designed to pierce helmets and body-armour – has long been legal in America for use in AR–15 rifles. These are the military-style semi-automatic rifles that have become the most popular hunting and self-defence weapons in the nation after their high-profile use in the massacres in a Sandy Hook primary school and a Colorado cinema." ...

"Following the assassination of Julius Caesar on this date in 44 B.C., the people of Rome didn’t ban knives, but today’s anti-gunners push legislation like Initiative 594, requiring so-called 'universal background checks,' arguing that it will prevent criminals and crazy people from getting guns, when a report yesterday on KOMO underscored why that’s wishful thinking at best."

"According to KOMO ... Seattle police bagged a couple of bad guys and several stolen firearms at a storage facility. This follows a report from a couple of weeks ago on KIRO about a Burien pawn shop raid that netted a bunch of stolen guns."

"Criminals deal in stolen guns, and they overlook such inconveniences as background checks. ..." ...

“Thanks to thousands of Arkansans who voiced their concerns about ATF’s proposal threatening our Second Amendment, the agency shelved its misguided framework. ...

"I know you're shocked -- SHOCKED -- to learn that Democrats have been caught chipping away at the Second Amendment again, now one round at a time. If nothing else, they are persistent."

"In 2008, a 'nobody from nowhere' presidential candidate who had mastered the art of the 'BIG Lie' mesmerized an audience with his faux provincial twang, insisting, 'I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in people's lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won't take your handgun away.'" ...

"The [ATF] claimed the most popular rifle cartridge in the US was illegal. That was a huge power grab by the Obama administration. That claim required the ATF to reinterpret its long standing rules. And why not. There is no one to stop President Obama if he pressed forward with an illegal presidential finding. Certainly the republican senators or congressmen will not stop President Obama. That leaves me wondering ... who stopped the latest gun grab?" ...

"And this is what I plan to do. So all of you who are whining over my right to defend my life, I suggest you realize this is an issue you will never win. My argument is based on principles and moral values. Individual rights trump municipal whims." ...

"I read Sen. Tom Corbin’s recent column. Although his ideas were soundly defeated in the Senate, he continues to warn against any threat to an abuser’s right to carry or possess guns. In his column he said, 'I have come under vicious attacks from the left and those that would love to take our Second Amendment rights away without due process.' Senate Bill 3 passed the Senate with a vote of 38 to 3. With 61 percent of the Senate solidly Republican, it is a stretch to see them as 'from the left.' Actually, the primary sponsor and Senate floor leader on this bill is Sen. Larry Martin, R-Pickens." ...

"State Rep. Rick Womick continues to pursue his 'constitutional carry' gun bill despite opposition from Gov. Bill Haslam."

"'According to the Second Amendment, we all have the right to bear arms,' said Womick, a Republican from Rutherford County's rural Rockvale community ... 'In Tennessee, you would be allowed to carry a gun without a permit. What my bill does is it allows the person who possesses a firearm to carry that firearm openly or concealed regardless of whether the person has a handgun permit.'"

"Womick, however, could face a harder time getting his bill through the House after the governor and his departments of education and safety red-flagged the bill, Haslam Press Secretary Dave Smith confirmed." ...

"As long as there have been guns in America, there has been regulation."

"The General Assembly is considering a number of laws dealing with firearms — proposed from both sides of the political aisle — which gives the legislature a rare opportunity for a bipartisan consensus that could provide a new model in this contentious area. Rather than become distracted by ideological rants, Connecticut can lead by developing a regulatory model that respects the rights of gun owners and makes everyone safer. There has been significant research to support a data-driven approach to gun policy." ...

"A recent Supreme Court decision on administrative law has implications for those concerned about the right to keep and bear arms. Yes, administrative law sounds about as boring as….well, words fail me….administrative law, but believe me, you’d better pay attention to it because the rules that agencies like the BATFE promulgate can have a serious impact on the kinds of firearms and ammunition that are available for purchase. The Supreme Court ruled that administrative agencies do not need to issue a notice and allow a 30-day period for comments from the general public if all they’re doing is changing an 'interpretive' rule . . ." ...

... "Hollis, acting individually and as trustee of a revocable living trust, is suing Holder and Jones in their official capacities for administering, executing and enforcing 'statutory and regulatory provisions [that] generally act as an unlawful de facto ban on the transfer or possession of a machine gun manufactured after May 19, 1986.' As reported in this column last Thursday, his sur-reply argues the federal ban on machine guns manufactured after May, 1986 'defies the Constitution,' as virtually identical firearms produced before the arbitrary cutoff are legal to own provided other federal taxation and registration provisions are met and they are not banned by state law." ...

"Hello, I am a UCSB student and rather vocally pro gun. I am also an advocate for the ending of police abuse and have had several run-ins with campus police. It started freshmen year when I was flying out of the airport in Santa Barbara and forgot that I had left ammunition in my bag which was doubling as a range bag at the time. Airport security found the ammunition, which I surrendered to them. They alerted UCPD (campus police) . . ."

"All Americans are granted freedoms and rights that are guaranteed to us by the Constitution, including the Second Amendment. And when those guaranteed rights get trampled on by the administration, I will not back down."

"In February, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives issued a proposal to ban “green tip” ammunition which is the most commonly used ammunition for the most popular rifle design in American — the AR-15. The ATF has long considered 'green tip' ammo to be allowable under the sporting purposes test, but, recently, the ATF announced that it would ban it, because repeating handguns that fire it are commercially available." ...

"The comments came Sunday afternoon as gun owners from around the Philadelphia region gathered at Bala Cynwyd Park, primarily at a small parking lot near the Cynwyd Heritage Trail, to protest what they call an illegal law in Lower Merion that prevents, or at least gives the impression that, it is illegal to openly carry guns in township parks." ...
