... "Those are just a few examples of a common theme among those who object to private citizens possessing the means to protect their families, their liberty, their homes and their lives, and they're all variations of the more fundamental idea that 'a gun's only purpose is to kill.'"

"Those who find these arguments convincing should be very concerned, then, about the fact that there are now more privately owned guns in the U.S. than ever before, with handguns (particularly those that use 'high capacity magazines') and so-called 'assault weapons' (the very guns most often denigrated as existing 'only to kill') leading the way." ...

... "In late August, 1944, Company L, 15th Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division, commanded by a dynamic combat leader, CPT James 'Red' Coles, was ordered to advance through Allan, France, in attempt to flank and cut off retreating elements of the German Nineteenth Army. At Allan, the Germans stopped running. Stripped of key supporting elements because of a lack of fuel and transportation SNAFUs, Company L and its supporting armor elements were traveling light. The result was a very tough fight for Allan in which Company L was quickly in danger of being cut-off and overrun. That they weren't was entirely a matter of leadership, training and the realization by enlisted men that, in the words of Jeff Danby, there was 'no way to go but forward.'" ...

"When you first see it, you think to yourself 'this can’t possibly be light.' And it isn’t. This rifle weighs a LOT more than your standard AR-15, and even more than my exceedingly heavy Pretty Princess AR (18″ heavy barrel + 3-9×40 optic). It’s something that you COULD shoulder and fire offhand (as pictured), but you would be nowhere near accurate. This isn’t something you’re going to be clearing rooms with." ...

"Remember the corrupt tactics used by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to pass ObamaCare? The secret meetings? The refusal to let the American people see the language?"

"Well, he’s at it again. This time, Reid is abusing his role as Majority Leader of the Senate to block a pro-gun amendment that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is attempting to add to the so-called Patriot Act."

"In order to circumvent Sen. Paul’s efforts to protect gun rights, Reid scuttled the Senate version of the 9/11 extension and instead tacked it onto an unrelated House-passed small business bill. He then employed a procedural scheme to lock out ALL Republican amendments, including Paul’s pro-gun amendment." ...

Within hours of the massacre, it was all too clear to anyone with more processing power than an Atari 2600 that Hassan had carried out a jihadi attack on a US military base.
