"Should New Jersey gun owners have the right to be armed in public without having to show an urgent need to do so?"

"The question arose again Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal in a high-profile lawsuit led by a Sussex County man seeking a permit to carry his handgun outside his house."

"In doing so, the high court let stand the state's requirement that gun owners must demonstrate a 'justifiable need' to be armed in public. ..."

"John Drake of Fredon — one of many plaintiffs in the case — said he needs a gun because he services and restocks ATM machines for a living."

"'It seems unreasonable to me to have to wait until you're beaten up or shot at to get a permit,' Drake told The Star-Ledger ..." ...

"In the closing moments of yesterday’s New Jersey Senate Law and Public Safety committee hearing on new gun control legislation, State Sen. Donald Norcross, a Democrat, made hay of Monday morning’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to not review a challenge of that state’s highly-restrictive concealed carry law to justify further restrictions on magazine capacity."

"'But as we heard today,' Sen. Norcross stated, 'the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 'justifiable need' is well within the constitution.' The passage begins at 2:41:40 on the audio."

"According to gun control advocates, there are good gun owners and bad gun owners. Gun owners who support 'reasonable restrictions' on their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, and gun owners who eat babies. I mean, live in a world where 'shall not be infringed' means what it says. The anti-gunners call the latter group 'extremists.' Some gun owners wear that label proudly, mindful of Barry Goldwater’s pronouncement that 'extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.' The question is, are YOU a gun extremist? To find out, answer the following three questions . . ." ...
 

Smart guns

"'Smart guns' have been in the news recently. Recently, a gun store owner in Maryland abandoned plans to begin selling a German-made 'smart gun' after protests–some of which included death threats. Such threats are crimes, and ought to be prosecuted, if the perpetrators can be identified. However, lawful threats, such as boycotts, seem likely to deter gun stores from selling the product. Gun owner boycotts and the risk of such boycotts have historically a very powerful check on the actions of firearms businesses. A firearms business which is perceived as anti-Second Amendment is not going to stay in business very long." ...
 

"Smart Guns" Are a Dumb Idea

"Ignoring the fallout Smith & Wesson Holdings ... endured decades ago after announcing plans to develop a so-called 'smart gun,' one that will only fire by its recognized owner, a Maryland gun dealer recently tried to offer one for sale. After suffering a massive backlash from gun owners for doing so, he subsequently withdrew it from market."

"It's not the gun itself that brought gun owners out in force against the dealer, just as they had done in March to a California dealer that also attempted to offer the gun for sale, but rather fear of the cascading effects such sales would have on further erosion of Second Amendment rights." ...

"When I visited Taurus a couple of years back, their head honcho Mark Kresser showed me the gun he carries. It was a Model 85 that he had the boys in the back modify ... His little wheelgun had a short barrel and a cut-down stock that gave him just enough real estate to grip and fire it. It also disappeared in his suit coat or pants pocket. That was the inspiration for the Taurus View . . ."

"Kresser’s gun, though, didn’t have the View’s most famous feature, the peek-a-boo side panel. In what will be seen, depending who you are, as either a brilliant marketing move or a ridiculous gimmick, the View gives anyone who wants to look a bird’s eye view of the revolver’s clockwork as it cycles via a Lexan plate on the gun’s right side." ...

"When Kentucky Gun Co sent the Diamondback FS Nine for testing, I also requested to borrow an H&R Handi-Rifle in 300 Blackout (review in the works). Unfortunately, there’s nothing chambered in 300 BLK in my gun safe and I was fresh out of any ammo in the caliber from almost two years ago when I last shot it. A trip to two local gun shops left me empty-handed, but my local shooting range pulled through. They had a few boxes of Gorilla Ammo‘s subsonic 300 BLK on hand and, while there was a slight tingle of recognition in my mind, I wasn’t actually sure if I’d heard of the brand before. They said it was really nice stuff so I bought two boxes . . ." ...

"The theme of last month’s National Rifle Association annual meeting was an odd one: maternity."

"It was not an official theme in the way macho slogans ... have formally defined recent NRA congresses. But it was a thick running thread, one that signals the quickening of a broad shift underway across the gun rights movement, from the gun makers to the grassroots."

"Red schwag set the tone. At tables throughout the complex, NRA staffers handed out 'I’m an NRA MOM' buttons and t-shirts. At the building’s main entrance hung an enormous banner of a woman, looking a little pouty, next to a populist taunt of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who recently said he would spend big on behalf of the gun safety movement." ...

The victims include Endia Martin, a 14-year-old girl, who was shot in the back in Chicago last week after an argument with a former friend over a boy. The weapon that was used to kill Martin, a .38 special revolver, began as a legal gun, reports the Chicago Tribune, but somehow it made its way to into this adolescent tussle, turning a flare up between young girls into a deadly tragedy."

"…is 30,000 corpses each and every year. There are a lot of other secondary considerations. But that is, overwhelmingly, from a prolife perspective, the single most important fact."

"My views on our gun culture are fairly simple. It can be boiled down to this: the human tradition of the second amendment does not trump the divine revelation of the fifth commandment. That’s because, to repeat, the single most important fact of our gun culture is 30,000 corpses each year." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Removing the 17,500 yearly suicides from the corpse count means that "30,000 corpses each year" is actually 12,500.

Looking the issue from a pro-life perspective the single most important fact of our gun culture is the 24,000+ lives saved each year.

Heller) or could spill into the streets and beyond.

"When the Founders codified and adopted the Bill of Rights they encoded into law those rights that were presumed to be basic. They thought them so important that they wanted no government ever to be able to deny them — as European governments often had.

Heller resoundingly affirmed that gun ownership was 'a pre-existing right' and that the amendment codified it 'unconnected with service in a militia.' It did, however, state the right was not 'unlimited' regarding types of weapons, purpose and manner of carry, etc." ...

"A new chapter in the battle between the [NRA] and the Florida Sheriffs Association developed on Tuesday, with a new email from former NRA president Marion Hammer cranking up the heat on the FSA over a bill sponsored by Sen. Jeff Brandes ..."

The comments drew criticism from the FSA, who said they were 'personally and professionally offended by her statements' over a gun bill that died in the 2014 legislative session.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68).
