... "The first flag is raised when viewers are told the entire video setup is a lie. That won’t surprise anyone familiar with “progressive” anti-gunner practices, but the thing is, once someone admits they’re lying, how are we to trust anything they say?"

"Is it reasonable to believe that not one person recorded challenged the fraud behind the counter, told him off and walked out? Why is it the “first time customers” were all so receptive to the technique of being lied to that they swore off something they represented themselves as wanting for reasons as valid as protection and belief in the Second Amendment? ..." ...

... "'All we’re trying to do is get them [people video-recording police activities] to back down a few feet,' he insisted."

"Not quite. Villalba’s bill makes 'interruption, disruption, impediment, or interference' a crime that includes 'filming, recording, photographing, or documenting the officer within 25 feet of the officer,' and 'filming, recording, photographing, or documenting the officer within 100 feet of the officer while carrying a handgun,' just in case there are any lawful concealed carry permit holders who also happen to be interested in documenting police activities to ensure accountability. And as written, the bill appears to criminalize the act of recording one's own interactions with police." ...

"Stephanie Heck doesn’t trust her neighbors. She doesn’t trust high school seniors, college students, and young adults in general. She believes that anybody 18 or older, given the opportunity to exercise the natural, fundamental, and inalienable human, individual, civil and Constitutional right to own and carry the weapon of their choice without let or hindrance is a 'profoundly absurd scheme' which will lead to 'firearms anarchy,' Whatever that means. She says so right here in her herald-dispatch.com piece, State doesn’t need 'firearms anarchy'. Speaking of West Virginia’s constitutional carry bill . . . " ...

"As you may be aware, gunophile and pro-2A sites such as this one are the bętes noires of those who despise Americans’ firearms freedom. There’s no shortage of keyboard commandos out there who wish disease, death and destruction on those of us who promote the right to keep and bear arms. Rather than simply hitting the delete button, though, our friends at concealednation.org have accumulated some of their hate mail and present it here for your listening pleasure and amusement. ..."
 

Massad Ayoob on Open Carry: Don’t Scare the Horses

"Gun guru Massad Ayoob reckons there are very few times when it’s OK to open carry a long gun. 'Experts will tell you that handguns are carried holstered, in case they’re needed for a life-threatening emergency, while long guns are traditionally carried only when their immediate use is anticipated,' Mas writes at backwoodshome.com. 'For us, that’s hunting, response to an already identified emergency (think 'Rodney King riots'), or a target shooting range.' And . . . that’s it. Open carrying a long gun to make a political point about gun rights? Ayoob’s not down with that . . ." ...

"Last week, sandwiched between a row of shops and apartments, you may have noticed that a store hawking firearms miraculously opened for two days on Manhattan’s Lower East Side"

"Had you ventured inside and asked the gruff-sounding owner whether you could take a closer look at, say, a revolver, you probably would have encountered the following sales pitch:"

“'…this revolver, it’s the easiest gun we have to use. It’s our most popular one. It’s a 22-caliber, six-inch revolver,' the clerk begins. 'It’s also a gun that a five-year-old found in his parents’ bedroom, went down and shot his nine-month-old baby brother with it.'" ...

"Reacting bitterly to the news that the [ATF] had yielded in its attempt to ban the M855 ... a small group of congressional Democrats yesterday announced plans to destroy the entire American rifle market. Touting his strong support for what the clique has rather cynically christened the 'Modernize Law Enforcement Protection Act,' Representative Steve Israel (D., NY) rehearsed a familiar linguistic trick. 'The Second Amendment, which I support,' Israel contended, has 'well-intended 18th-century protections.' 'But,' he lamented, 'we live in a world with 21st-century criminals and increasingly lethal weapons.' As a result, Washington has been left with little choice but to take away your bullets." ...

"Attorney General Doug Peterson and 22 other state attorneys general have sent a letter to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) urging the agency to permanently discard a proposed ban on M855 5.56 x 45mm ammunition."

"On March 10, ATF shelved the proposal after an outpouring of opposition, including from the law enforcement community."

"After shelving the proposal, ATF indicated it would continue to take public comment until the close of business on March 16. In the letter submitted to ATF yesterday, Mr. Peterson and the other attorneys general contend that the proposed ban is arbitrary, unnecessary, and could easily lead to bans on a wide range of rifle ammunition." ...

"Fortunately, a groundswell of critical feedback from gun rights supporters like you has halted the Obama administration’s effort to ban M855 ammunition."

"That’s the good news. Unfortunately, there is also some bad news."

"According to his own statements, it appears that BATFE Director B. Todd Jones never intended to limit the ban to M855 ammunition. The Obama appointee had instead intended to use M855 as a ramp-up to a broader ammunition ban, and ultimately ban all types of 5.56 ammo!" ...

"The Firearms Manufacturers and Dealers Protection Act, from Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.), would completely eradicate the funding for Choke Point, and prevent any similar programs from emerging in the future." ...

"Gun rights advocates are seeking support on Beacon Hill to legalize stun guns, following a ruling by the state's highest court that upholds a ban on the non-lethal weapons."

"Earlier this month, the Supreme Judicial Court ruled against a woman, Jaime Caetano, who was arrested with a stun gun in 2011. She told police she needed it for self-defense against an abusive ex-boyfriend." ...

"Jim Wallace, executive director of the Gun Owners Action League, the Massachusetts affiliate of the National Rifle Association, said he's drafting legislation to allow citizens to own stun guns.'" ...

"On Thursday, a Panel in the Minnesota House of Representatives voted in favor of which would de-criminalize the possession of silencers and prohibit a chief law enforcement officer from refusing to perform NFA sign-offs 'based on generalized objection to private presons or entities making, possessing, or receiving firearms or any certain type of firearm, the possession of which is not prohibited by law.' HF1434 also establishes an appeals process for cases where the CLEO refuses to sign off on an NFA application, awarding reasonable attorneys for plaintiffs who are so denied and later prevail in court . . ." ...

"Breaking a Lower Merion Township rule Sunday afternoon, several peaceful gun rights activists carried firearms openly in protest of a local firearms prohibition. The township prohibits any person from carrying and firing a gun in public parks, except exempted parties or law enforcement officials. 'Although the rule does not ban legal guns from parks, rally organizers say the ordinance is illegal under Pennsylvania law, which gives the state jurisdiction over firearms regulations.' Protesters say it violates Pennsylvania law which gives the right to restrict firearms usage to the state, not localities (auto-play video after the jump) . . ." ...

... "New York has one of the highest exodus rates in the country. Younger generations are realizing that a life in New York is not sustainable due to the abusive tax structure and lack of employment opportunities. We owe it to our children and grandchildren to see if separation from New York City is actually feasible. Without the expensive downstate burden, we could gain education funding, lower taxes, have full Second Amendment rights, and more opportunities to experience the 'American Dream.' Join me in fighting for upstate and passing my legislation so we can build a better 'New New York.'"

"The brouhaha over “green tip” M855 ammo would be funny if it wasn’t. Despite the ATF’s strategic withdrawal on their plans to ban the popular rifle ammo – in the face of enormous pro-ballistic blowback, the Fraternal Order of Police’s assertion that M855’s no biggie and simple common sense – the civilian disarmament complex hasn’t given up. They’ve introduced a bill to ban the rounds anyway. You know, ’cause they can defeat cops’ “bullet proof vests.” As can any reasonable rifle round. Anyway, if the po-po want to stop rifle rounds, that’s doable. They just have to carry a shield. (Hey they used to have to roll them around.) Here’s the 411 on Baker Ballistics MRAPS-IV . . ." ...

"These days, the only folks legally carrying guns at Texas public universities are the campus police, but that would change if House Bill 937 become law."

"The University of Texas at San Antonio does not allow guns on campus. If HB937 is passed, the university says it would adhere to state law, but remains opposed to guns on campus."

"'I'm in favor of (students) being able to carry concealed weapon on campus if they have a license and they chose to,' said UTSA student Andrew Hartley."

"Safety, not the second amendment, is on the mind of many UTSA professors. Many students tell us their professors are talking about HB 937 in class, and they don't like it." ...

"A rape survivor made a compelling case in favor of reforming Maryland’s 'may issue' concealed carry laws during a Senate committee hearing last week, explaining to lawmakers why women need to be able to defend themselves."

"I need you to know this is so incredibly difficult for me, but I feel like if I don’t humanize this, if I don’t make it clear how this legislation actually affects your daughters, your mothers, the women of this state, then it’s all just a bunch of numbers,” Jacqueline Kahn told Maryland lawmakers."

"Kahn then claimed that a man was arrested in her backyard. He was in possession of duct tape and scissors, she said." ...

"While the National Rifle Association convention in Nashville next month will bring some bucks and a few presidential aspirants to Music City, state legislators apparently don't need too much more inspiration to pass gun-related bills."

"Gun legislation was a priority for the General Assembly before the Republican Party won supermajorities in both house, and any defeat of or compromise on a gun measure provides some surprise."

"Gov. Bill Haslam, a Republican, is not in favor of eliminating permits for handguns, but that only again puts him at odds with more conservative members of his party, such as state Rep. Rick Womick, who represents part of Rutherford County." ...
