... "This latest order, essentially a two-week extension, will not seem like much to government lawyers who draw their salaries and go home at the end of the day to situations where it is their choice if the expenses they face are within their means. That’s not so for the Reese family, and every day they are denied a resolution to their ordeal is a day where legal and living expenses mount as their assets are walled off and their livelihoods are cut off from them." ...
 

Gun Control is Expensive

"My mother used to drag my father into some of the world’s most expensive stores. She’d point out how ugly something was ... 'At least it’s expensive,' my father would pronounce. That’s how it is with gun control. Not only is civilian disarmament ugly—in terms of trampling on Americans’ right to keep and bear arms—it’s also an enormous waste of taxpayer money. To wit this little gem from Connecticut’s stamfordadvocate.com: 'State police are seeking 39 additional workers — at a cost of $2.6 million — to handle an avalanche of new duties brought on by gun laws passed after the Newtown school massacre.' Pah! That’s a drop in the bucket. The real cost of the Constitution State’s unconstitutional gun laws is . . ." ...

"Over the past 48 hours, National Public Radio, India Today and Opposing Views have zeroed in on a months-old southwest Oregon rape case that underscores the need for gun ownership where police are few and far between due to budget cuts."

"In the process of resurrecting this story, all three agencies published excerpts from the 911 call made by the victim before she was assaulted and raped by an ex-boyfriend. Included in that transcript is one of the most startling remarks one might imagine."

"The police dispatcher tells the frantic woman, 'You know, obviously if he comes inside the residence and assaults you, can you ask him to go away? Or do you know if he’s intoxicated or anything?'" ...

"When music fans think of West Coast rapper Ice-T, Ted Nugent may not be the first name that immediately comes to mind. But that’s who the rapper is teaming up with for a new documentary about the heated gun control debate."

"The recently announced film, 'Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire,' looks at the background of the Second Amendment."

"'Assaulted' turns the gun debate around. It is a civil rights issue, and we take a look at the history of the Second Amendment. It’s a right that has been abused over the years and one that gets overlooked the most,' the film’s executive producer, writer and director, Kris Koenig, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. ..." ...

It does not mean you applauded the tragic and horrific shootings of Aurora, CO, or in Newtown, CT. It does not mean you are automatically 'armed and dangerous' and that you should be monitored and scrutinized by lesser Americans ..."

"'The NRA' is not just the NRA."

"Gun-control advocates alternatively marvel at and condemn the effectiveness of the National Rifle Association. Liberals mistakenly accuse the gun lobby of being in the thrall of firearm manufacturers when, if anything, the opposite is true: The NRA leads the industry around by the ear."

"NRA foes also fixate on the organization’s dues-paying membership, which has jumped since the school massacre in Newtown, Conn., and now approaches 5 million, according to the NRA. Still, skeptics demand, why should a mere 5 million people set national gun-control policy? The question betrays a misunderstanding of the reach and appeal of gun rights in the U.S." ...

"New technological advances in smart guns may prove to be a boon to senior citizens who love to hunt or shoot rifles but have problems due to advancing age. Using laser and computer technology, a new rifle allows you to simply look through a ‘scope’, put the X on your target and lock in the laser dot and it does all the rest. It will take into account distance, barometric pressure, temperature, the curvature of the earth, and other variables and even allow you to track the target when it is moving. You simply press the trigger but the rifle does not shoot right away like a normal one would. It computes all of the above and fires at the optimum time. Very science fiction." ...

The pertinent fact is that murder of any sort is relatively uncommon in Britain. People there are very much safer without guns than those in the United States, where the number of gun-related homicides is counted in the thousands. The comparison is a dud."

"As a mobster might put it, Ronald Reagan was not a friend of ours. As California’s Governor, Ronnie curtailed gun rights. As President, he elevated the ATF to full agency status and supported the Brady Bill. Still, the Gipper knew how government thinks: 'If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.' In other words, they get you coming and going. We can see this all-embracing ethos in the current push for civilian disarmament. Specifically, surcharges. In its recent package of gun ban bills, Connecticut added a $35 per person fee for mandatory 'eligibility certificates to purchase guns and ammo.' Not to be outdone on the tax side, California is working on adding to the cost of ammo . . ." ...

"Morristown Councilwoman Rebecca Feldman ignorantly writes that by reducing the size of magazines in a rifle or pistol to 10 rounds we would somehow magically stop someone from taking more lives."

"Capping the number of rounds in a magazine would not make a difference in any mass shooting. It takes one-and-a-half seconds to drop a 10- 15- or 30-shot magazine and re-load. It’s been done as an exercise by numerous sheriffs departments across the land, showing the stupidity of reducing magazine size. Say 'one thousand and one, and....' and you’ve ejected the empty and put in the full magazine. The shooter at Virginia Tech had two pistols with 10-round magazines.

... "It didn’t take long for the county officials to discover why their event wasn’t as successful as they thought it would be. In fact, about an hour into the selling period, the Wayne County Executive himself, Robert Ficano, pulled into the parking lot where the gun rights activists were set up and exited his vehicle to survey what was happening. He left frustrated, 10 minutes later. In his place, Wayne County deputies were sent to the lot."

"From that moment forward until the event ended, the gun rights activists were harassed by all day by Wayne County deputies. Their first act was to park one of their marked cars by the parking lot’s entrance and started directing people further up the street to the church." ...

"We hear references to the Second Amendment constantly as protection of everyone's right to own a gun. But read the Constitution.

"A 'frenzied machete attack.' 'The most appalling crime.' 'Sickening.' 'Barbaric.' 'A deluded, deranged act of violence.' 'Gruesome and shocking.' These were press-cited descriptions of the butchering of a British soldier by a black man with a meat-cleaver, on a southeast London street." ...

"At the risk of repeating what ought to be obvious, a right that can’t be defended is a right in name only. Inherent in the idea of an inalienable right is the right to mount a vigorous defense of the same right. If you cannot by law defend your life, you have no right to life."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
