"That titles of nobility were viewed by the Founders as incompatible with the Constitutional form of government they established is a given. So it should come as no surprise that Michael Bloomberg, one of the foremost advocates for infringing on the right to keep and bear arms, was pleased beyond measure to accept the honorary title of Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, as The New York Times reported Thursday. Also no surprise: He declared the heirs apparent to two wannbe political dynasties, Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton, to be the only two candidates capable of ascending to the throne." ...

"'They are coming to take your guns away!' That was the message from this past weekend’s annual NRA Convention,' Dean Obeidallah [above] writes at dailybeast.com. 'In fact, it’s the same message we have heard for years from the NRA. And just as it has been in the past, as it was this weekend, that message is a lie.' Tell that to residents of New York; gun owners forced to sell or transfer their 'assault rifles' under the terms of the SAFE Act. OK, the Empire State’s storm troopers didn’t knock on doors and physically remove illegal firearms. Yet. But same diff. Besides, is there any question that gun control proponents want to control Americans’ guns right out of existence? For some, there is . . " ...

"On Sunday, a three-year-old Ohio resident got ahold of a firearm and shot a one-year-old boy in the head, killing him. Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams told the press that the person responsible for bringing the gun into the boys’ home may face charges. After that announcement, Williams went off-script. He told reporters that America’s gun culture bears responsibility for the tragedy. 'Everybody has to know [that] this fascination with handguns, not just in the city, but in the country, has to stop,' he told cleveland.com. 'We need to take a long look at what we’re doing on the state, local and national level to keep these guns out of our communities.' The backlash in the comments section includes this gem . . ." ...

"Departing Monday morning from the Nashville airport, one can sense some disappointment among anti-gunners that nothing unsavory happened during the three-day National Rifle Association convention; and even a thin attempt to taint the event with a tenuous link to sex-trafficking yesterday didn’t wash."

"The Nashville Tennessean quoted police Capt. Randy Hickerson noting that the event, which drew tens of thousands of visitors to the city, 'had been fairly uneventful.' How could that be with a building full of firearms and armed citizens? Gun prohibitionists continually insist that firearms and people really don’t mix." ...

"On April 13 2015, The Daily Beast (TDB) reacted to the NRA’s Nashville convention by accusing Wayne LaPierre of 'lying' in telling NRA members that Obama and the Democrats want to take guns away."

"In fact, Obama is not even anti-gun–according to TDB–and he made his support for the Second Amendment clear in 2008."

"According to TDB, 'No one in the Obama administration or any Democrat administration has ever tried to take law-abiding citizens’ guns away.' Moreover, TDB said, Obama 'can’t' take guns, even if he wanted to, because the Supreme Court decided there is an individual right to keep and bear arms in 2008." ...

"A pack of 2016 Republicans made their pitch for president Friday before the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in Nashville, blasting the Obama administration for what they described as an erosion of freedom while punctuating their remarks with sharp enthusiasm for Second Amendment rights."

"The contenders also used the principles behind gun rights to fire off criticism of President Barack Obama's handling of national security, further signaling the influential role that foreign policy is expected to have in the presidential election." ...

"Your grandfather’s generation was introduced to some of the finest deer hunting rifles ever made. These five classic deer rifles have a near perfect blend of form and functionality. The power and reliability of rifles like the Winchester Model 70 or the German-made Mauser M98 are hard to beat even by today’s standards. Chances are your grandpa or one of his hunting buddies used an original Marlin 336 during their deer hunting days. The 336 is one of the most reliable and accurate lever-action sporting rifles ever made. Since its introduction in 1948, more than 6 million Model 336’s have been produced . . ." ...

... "Christie received only a 'C' grade from the NRA in his 2013 re-election campaign and isn’t generally known for taking strong stands in defending the Second Amendment. His absence therefore was not surprising."

"Not so much for Sen. Paul, who received an 'A' rating from the NRA, and is generally known for being one of the most libertarian members of the Senate. Although the WSJ’s Washington Wire Blog reports that 'the NRA chalked up Mr. Paul’s absence from Nashville to scheduling concerns,' it also reported that the junior senator from Kentucky was being shunned due to his connections with another group – the National Association for Gun Rights." ...

"On his way to Las Vegas to wrap up the opening week of his candidacy, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took a detour to a state where Republican candidates have often experienced major difficulties with the electorate."

"I think living in California, you know how hard it is for a Republican to win, right?' asked Paul ..."

"'Some of that is because the brand is broken. So what I say is, we have to believe in what we believe in, but we [also] have to expand the audience and be willing to listen to it.'"

"With his inclusive tone, Paul urged activists to transform the Republican Party. Going beyond their support for the Second Amendment is part of it. To him, the GOP must become 'the party of the entire Bill of Rights,' ..." ...

"This one involves a 24-year old Middlesex County man who is pleading with the governor to help erase what he says was a mistake that shattered his dreams and 'ruined' his life."

"His name is Steffon Josey-Davis, and his story is about something that's front-and-center in Republican presidential primaries: gun rights."

"Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, one of the Republican Party’s potential candidates for president, said “bullies” on the left will try to steamroll the Second Amendment if Americans don’t take care."

"He also said in an interview with Breitbart religious liberty has come under attack, and it’s crucial for patriots to step forward and fight."

"'The Founding Fathers were smart enough to know that the American people need to have the right to bear arms for self-defense,' he said. 'They wrote the Second Amendment with the knowledge that a well-armed colonial citizenry had just defeated a tyrant and the most powerful army in the world, in the British army. So the most basic reason for the Second Amendment is our own self-defense.'" ...

"The first major bill to pass both the House and Senate in the current session will be a gun bill, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports."

"The Texas House today is scheduled to debate HB 910, which would allow the open carrying of firearms in Texas for the first time since the late 1860s."

"The bill is not the complete 'constitutional carry' that open carry advocates want. To carry a handgun in public, a person would still have to pass a Concealed Handgun Law course. And the law allows only 'the open carry of a holstered handgun,' it does not allow individuals to carry long guns in public, like activists have been doing for the past two years." ...

"But there’s another explanation: politics."

"Polls show that many Republican voters — the most influential primary bloc in Texas — are intensely interested in gun issues. And the GOP primary is the only election that counts for lots of lawmakers, many of whom already have a passion for the Second Amendment." ...

FL: Militarized Police Now Using ‘Tanks’ (Armored Vehicles) To Pull Over Citizens On American Soil

It is hard to imagine that this surreal story does not originate in a nation run by a violent warlord (or maybe it does), but it actually comes from Florida, where Lucas Jewell, a resident of Gainesville noticed local members of the Alachua County Sheriff’s Department were riding through town in a tank-like armored vehicle that appears to be a Lanco BearCat, an armored personnel carrier intended for military use.
As Mr. Jewell believes that this is a gross abuse of taxpayers’ dollars and is opposed to the militarization of police, he found this display of military hardware on public roads offensive and showed the individuals in riding in the tank his middle finger and proceeded to continue on his journey.

"'People lined up in front of the Doles Community Center with boxes and bags containing firearms an hour before the city opened the doors Saturday to the first gun buyback program in more than eight years,' lohud.com reports. Regular readers know my laundry list of complaints about these 'feel good' firearms turn-in events: the no-question-asked policy eliminates the possibility of a criminal investigation, they create a market for stolen firearms ... they vilify guns, they disarm citizens, they destroy valuable firearms and they accomplish zilch in terms of reducing crime. “Gun buybacks” are nothing more than political theater. Still, the results are interesting and there’s a sad, make that pathetic twist to this tale . . ." ...

"It's a problem some gun owners say leaves them defenseless, when South Carolina will not recognize their Georgia-issued Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP), or vice versa. However, a bill in the South Carolina legislature could change that. H.3799 would require South Carolina recognize Georgia CWP's; then, Georgia would reciprocate."

"While many CWP holders say they support the bill, some do not because there are different requirements for the permit across states. Georgia does not require its CWP holders to have firearms training, like South Carolina does. For this reason, the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office opposes the legislation." ...
