"If you call yourself a Marine and are a gun owner, the Gun Control Act of 1968 (Title 18, United States Code, Sec 922), as amended on September 30, 1996, could have serious consequences on not only your right to possess a firearm, but on your eligibility to remain in the Marine Corps."

"Lautenberg’s main effort makes it a felony for any individual convicted of the misdemeanor crime of domestic violence—regardless of when the conviction occurred— to ship, transport, possess or receive firearms or ammunition. Currently there is no exception for military personnel or for military-issued weapons. A Lautenberg-triggering conviction also includes crimes of domestic violence tried by a general or special court-martial."

"As the number of hunters dips in traditional hunting states such as Michigan, efforts are being made to tap a group that hasn't participated much in shooting sports: mothers and daughters."

"The potential is there. While 13 million people nationwide hunted in 2001 - the most recent year for which data is available - females accounted for only 9 percent of the total, or 1.2 million, according to a report by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Nationally, about 12 percent of all males hunt, while only about 1 percent of women do."

"Many more women target shoot than hunt, but their numbers still lag. ..."

"Not exactly a record that's likely to make you employee of the month. So it wasn't surprising this week when the city's Merit Board voted unanimously to deny Lovelace's request to have his gun and his badge back."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
