Opposition to Ohio gun shop based on ignorance, prejudice

... "That none of the complainers need prove they know the first thing about guns, gun shops, gun shop clientele and the statistical significance of nearby hoagie shops, bars, day care centers, school drop-offs and houses to create any kind of public safety concern, other than what their own prejudices conjure up, has not been questioned. Their unprovoked anger is entirely self-created, and to imply their peaceable neighbors will lawfully patronize a gun store and then do something evil because a tavern or a day care are nearby is, frankly, insulting, and not worthy of a response except to return such disrespect in kind. ..." ...

"During last weekend’s NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, I gave a presentation on home defense concepts. One of the the suggestions I offered was keeping a gun – locked securely in a quick-access safe – in your child’s room. Just in case. As you may have heard, my tip was picked up by members of the anti-gun media (yes, that’s redundant) and has been spun as advice that gun owners store their firearms in their children’s room . . ." ...

"Gun violence in America has fallen dramatically over the past two decades, and the number of murders committed with a firearm is down too, though guns are still by far the leading type of crime weapon, according to a new report from the Justice Department."

"As for where crime guns came from, the study notes that less than two percent of convicted inmates reported buying their weapons at gun shows or flea markets. The highest number, 40 percent, said the guns came from a family member or a friend. About 37 percent said the weapons were stolen or obtained from an illegal source. The rest say the guns were bought at a retail store or pawn shop." ...

My reply was that getting his gun back should not even be a concern because his life would be changed for the worst if he shot someone no matter what the circumstances.

"Electronic Arts, the maker of the immensely popular Medal of Honor video game series has said it will sever its ties with real life gun manufacturers in its future releases."

"Many modern first person shooter games such as Call of Duty and Medal of Honor are known for its realistic appearance and naming of real life weapons in the game. Many games of the past based in game weapons on real life weapons, but did not actually license the names and form factors like Call of Duty did. Some think this realism is what helped propel the franchise to the top of the first person shooter video game category." ...

"During the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Houston, Texas on May 3, 2013, Beretta announced that a new gun will be shipping this August. Called the Pico it has a lot to offer the senior shooter. It initially comes as a very slim (.71”) Inox slide chambered in 380 acp with a forthcoming .32 acp drop in barrel as an accessory. The chassis of the gun is serialized which is the part that is considered the “gun” by the ATF people. This allows Beretta to offer new frames with built in lights and lasers rather than as add-ons. Lasermax will be offering frame replacement frames with lights and lasers that require no or little tool use. MSRP is $399 for the .380 version of the gun that comes in a zippered bag." ...

The new Liberator does have two pieces of metal: a small nail to act as a firing pin, and a 6 oz. block of steel in the grip of the gun, that serves no structural or operational purpose, but keeps the gun in compliance with the 'Undetectable Firearms Act's' requirement that guns contain a certain minimum quantity of metal." ...

"The country’s clash over gun control has created anxiety about ammo shortages, increased applications for conceal-carry permits and even brought a Florida man social-media fame."

The idea that someone can print a gun at home without a background check is, as Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) puts it, 'stomach-churning.' They can seem themselves losing control of the proliferation of firearms in the hands of citizens, and they’re striking back. Representatives Steve Israel and Charles Rangel (both D-NY) introduced a bill (H.R. 1474) that would expand the 'Undetectable Firearms Act' (passed because of a movie, out of fear that Glock handguns could slip through security checkpoints), and add provisions that might put Magpul and other plastic magazine manufacturers out of business. ..." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
