... "The problem with Gottlieb’s endorsement is that Norquist is what even 'progressive' MSNBC acknowledges to be an 'amnesty-loving immigration activist.' No less an authority than Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has declared the millions of illegal immigrants in this country have 'earned the right to be citizens ... An earned path to citizenship for those currently present in this country is a matter of, in my view, homeland security to encourage people to come out from the shadows.'" ...

Rated 'F' by the National Rifle Association and 'F-' by Gun Owners of America, a review of his 'On the Issues' profile for 'gun control' shows why:" ...

"Gun control groups claim to support the Second Amendment. 'We don’t want to take away anyone’s guns,' they routinely assert. 'We just want sensible gun laws to keep guns away from criminals and mentally ill people.' No matter how many times they say it, no matter how credulously or complicity the media accepts it, it’s a lie. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence – they all want to disarm all Americans (save the police and other government agents). Every now and then, they just can’t help themselves . . ."

"Joe Nocera is the New York Times’ in-house anti-gunner and he’s is at it again, this time defending the [ATF's] proposed ban on M855 'green tip' ammunition. 'Seven or eight years ago, makers of assault rifles like the popular AR-15 began making handgun versions of these powerful weapons [AR-15s]. These handguns use the same bullets as the assault rifles, including some that are armor-piercing ... Quite sensibly, the A.T.F. realized it needed to take another look at the issue of whether certain armor-piercing bullets that had long been associated with rifles were now more problematic because they could be used in these new, more lethal handguns.' Oh dear . . ." ...

"... once on campus, concealed carry holders of every age are turned into idiots. Not just students, but also the visitors, staff and faculty suddenly become irresponsible if they carry a gun Even the dozens of truck drivers who deliver to the university have a sudden change of character when the front wheels roll onto campus. Sure, that sounds crazy, but that is what university administrators from Texas, Idaho and Florida told us. ..." ...

"Today’s New York Times carries an Op-Ed about the unfolding controversy involving the [ATF's] attempt to ban the M855 cartridge for modern sport-utility rifles that now has the conspiracy theorists having fits because an exemption for the round was deleted in the latest regulations manual."

"The ATF has issued a press release calling it a 'publishing error' that has 'no legal impact on the validity of the exemptions.' The agency says the regulations guide will be corrected in PDF format, but that may not satisfy a growing number of angry gun owners, many of whom think it is time for the agency to go." ...

"'President Obama is determined to cement his anti-gun agenda into law,' begins a letter signed by Paul and posted to the website of his political action committee ..."

"'I’m counting on your immediate action to help RANDPAC flood the agency with a message from America’s pro-gun majority,' Paul writes in his letter."

"BATFE is accepting public comment until March 17 on its proposal to ban .223 M855 'green tip' ammunition. The Obama administration backs the effort, arguing that it is needed because the bullets can pierce bullet-proof vests ..." ...

"Public protection or a violation of second amendment rights? That's the debate tonight over a possible ban on a more dangerous type of bullet, which is popular at some Chattanooga shooting ranges."

"The green tip bullet goes in an AR-15."

"Owner of Carters Shooting and Hunting Supply, Kristi Manning, says it's a 62 grain bullet, used mostly for sport."

"Now, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is trying to take green tip bullets off the shelves, permanently." ...

"The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is proposing a ban against a bullet that is used in AR-15s. ATF Director B. Todd Jones will receive the letter, which was signed by 325 other members of Congress."

"As the Obama [ATF] continues to position itself as a Constitutional authority to ban ammunition, claiming that 5.56/.223-caliber M855 ball ammunition should be classified as 'armor piercing' and 'cop killer' bullets, the Executive Vice President of the Second Amendment Foundation says that there isn't one police officer who has ever been shot by this ammunition." ...

"Two years have passed, but the Ontario County Board of Supervisors still feels the same way about New York's adopted gun control law."

"State Sen. Michael Nozzolio, R-Fayette, and Sen. Kathleen Marchione, R-Halfmoon, introduced legislation that would repeal all or most of the SAFE Act. Sen. Rich Funke, R-Perinton, and Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, R-Canandaigua, have co-sponsored similar bills that seek the same purpose."

"On Thursday inside the Ontario County Safety Training Facility, the board voted in overwhelming favor of a resolution in support of this legislation calling for a repeal of the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act of 2013." ...

"I would like to respond to the recent Another Voice claiming that the NY SAFE Act is popular and makes sense. First of all, don’t blame the GOP for wanting to repeal this nonsensical law. There are many people, with varied backgrounds and political beliefs, who feel this sham law should be repealed."

"The SAFE Act was passed in the middle of the night, strong-armed through the Legislature by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It was a response to a heinous school shooting. Unfortunately, so much pressure was put on legislators to pass it that many did vote for it – based on emotion, not on common sense. Most legislators did not even read the legislation before voting on it." ...

"When running for election, candidates almost always promise to listen to their constituents."

"But it seems some of them can’t — or won’t — hear what constituents in South Carolina are saying about domestic abusers and their guns."

"A survey done by Winthrop University and released last week found that 75 percent of residents think the Legislature should pass a law forbidding people who have been convicted of criminal domestic violence from owning guns." ...

"Last November four California gun dealers filed suit on First Amendment grounds against the nation’s best-looking attorney general over the state’s 1923 vintage law that prohibits gun retailers from displaying any image of a handgun that is visible from the street. Of course, Kamala Harris is busy running for the Senate seat soon to be vacated by the vacuous Barbara Boxer, so Golden State gunnies may not have her to kick around much longer. In the mean time, as the case winds its way toward a showdown before a federal judge, both sides are trading barbs and motions as they jockey for position. Here’s a press release that Calguns issued today . . ." ...

"Joshua Akery, Tyler Whidby, and Brian Wrenn have filed a joint suit against DC, supported by the [SAF], which backed the first lawsuit. The case is again being presided over by Judge Scullin ... who also handled Palmer for the District Court for the District of Columbia due to a backlog."

"Massachusetts' ban on the private possession of stun guns—an 'electrical weapon' under the statute—does not violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms, the state's top court has ruled."

"The decision says (PDF) that the US Constitution's framers never envisioned the modern stun-gun device, first patented in 1972. The top court said stun guns are not suitable for military use, and that it did not matter whether state lawmakers have approved the possession of handguns outside the home." ...

"When Accomac County, Virginia Circuit Court Clerk Samuel H. Cooper Jr., an elected official, began offering gun owners in his county the option under recent but obscure legislation to apply for a Virginia concealed handgun permit (CHP) that included a photo, he did not think the move would be controversial. But when it comes to gun regulations, things can get complicated pretty quickly."

"... One criticism of Clerk Cooper was that his office’s photo-CHP contained a statement to the effect that CHP holders must immediately notify police officers if they are carrying a concealed handgun."

"... Virginia is in the majority of states that do not require gun carriers to notify police officers that they are carrying concealed handguns." ...
