"At the EXA Show over 1200 gun owners signed up as co-plaintiffs for the first ever gun owner class action lawsuit filed in Europe. IAPCAR owes a very big thank you to the Italian gun magazine, ARMIeTiro who provided the exhibit space for the effort." ...

... "So, what exactly are the SPLC's political positions? Well, I think it's safe to say that they're anti-militia. They spent a lot of time and effort demonizing these groups. I would say that they seem awfully anti free association. They certainly don't seem to want groups of people gathering together to discuss politics, especially if their views differ from the views and opinions of the SPLC leadership. This is particularly true if these people carry guns, for then they must be anti government. Certainly they believe militias are not just preparing in case they might have to depend on themselves in the event of some disaster."

"They seem to be anti second amendment, not wanting people to have the means to defend themselves. ..." ...

"On Monday April 19th, DC residents seeking a vote in Congress were on the verge of achieving what they had worked for over 50 years to accomplish. Both houses of Congress were willing to grant DC a voting seat in Congress. The catch? In order to get the voting seat, they had to accept an easing of DC’s draconian gun laws. That’s right ... in order to get one right that they felt strongly about, all they had to do was accept other rights for the residents of DC." ...

"This week, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control advocacy group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), began running television ads urging Congress to 'close the gun show loophole.'" ...

"MAIG's ads claim 'The Columbine school massacre … killers got their guns because of a gap in the law ...' And in a related press release, MAIG claims 'All four guns used in the Columbine shootings were bought from private sellers at gun shows.'"

"The claims are lies, of course.
For starters, one of the Columbine criminals' four firearms was not acquired at a gun show. More to the point, however, the other three firearms, while bought at a gun show, were bought for the criminals by a straw purchaser ..." ...

"A lot of second amendment education of the electorate will be facts and much will be a values system or way of life philosophy. Dan Bidstrup has one such piece April 27th which presents facts, and also combines his content with a values system which we believe we are losing. Connect these two – facts and what they signify to us – and you can more likely motivate the electorate."

"Good work, Dan."

"In examining college student objections to concealed carry on campus, Dan raises two important issues: psychodynamics at work in opposing second amendment rights [projection, he mentions] and how to reach these people." ...

"Like a fly on a birthday cake, the subject of open carry—legally wearing a gun in public—keeps landing in the news and nobody can swat it down. Those who would like to be rid of it range from some of the most ardent gun-controllers to some of the fiercest believers in the Second Amendment right to bear arms. Many of the latter live in the 43 states where it already is legal to openly wear a handgun (although rules vary about whether it can be loaded, etc.). That the majority of people who could walk around outfitted for the OK Corral choose not to do so ought to be a hint that the minority who are most eager to force open carry on the rest of us might belong in a special category of bozos." ...

"This just in: The [ATF] on Thursday released its annual report on guns recovered in crimes in New York."

"It is a snapshot of the guns recovered by law enforcement officers around the state, which were then submitted to the bureau to be traced. 'We want to trace them to find out where they come from who purchased them and how did they get to New York,' said Joseph G. Green, a spokesman for the bureau." ...
-------

KABA Note: According to the report fewer than 8% of traced guns had a 'time-to-crime' of 2 years or less. And the biggest supplier of traced guns? New York State, with more than 4 times as many traces as the next nearest state. Darn those lax New York Laws!

"In 2010, Bloomberg hopes to make news for a different reason. According to a recent MAIG press release, the gun ban group is spending more than a quarter of a million dollars to release a series of television commercials on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and in local markets in Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Virginia. The ads call on senators from those states to join a minority that wishes to ban private sales of firearms between individuals at gun shows." ...

"OK, so it was for signing a bill backed by the National Rifle Association that standardized rules for getting concealed weapons permits. Not a big stretch for a Republican. But Roberts actually sent out a press release commending Culver for signing the bill. I expect that’s the kind of thing Roberts is talking about when he says he can reach across the aisle and work with both parties." ...
