"Barrasso, Enzi and Lummis followed the establishment herd supporting the Patriot Act. While there is a lot of doom and gloom in this article make sure you read about the 'light at the end of the tunnel' below."

"Sadly the Un-Patriot Act extension has been signed into law by Barack Obama, but what does this really mean?"

"All the records that contain personal information about your finances, gun purchases, GPS-phone location, even health records can be requested without the standard procedure. You see it is no longer politically correct to wake up a Judge at 3am to sign a search warrant." ...

"Willfully incredulous. Factually obtuse. Pathetically doofus-like. It seems there’s no end to the number of mainstream journalists who are (or, at least, profess to be) surprised by the correlation between relaxed gun laws, increased gun ownership and reduced violent crime. No matter how many times the facts hit them over the head. And writers in the Old Dominion are evidently no different…" ...

"Barrett is best known for their .50 BMG semi-automatic rifles. They also produce some very nice bolt action rifles. Their latest rifle is called the MRAD or Multi-Role Adaptive Design rifle, chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum. Barret trucked their rifle out to the NDIA symposium in Indianapolis (along with a generous supply of ammunition) and let me take a couple shots." ...

Jim Brady, the White House Press Secretary who was severely wounded at the time, and his wife, Sarah, were meeting with current Press Secretary Jay Carney. The President joined the meeting.

"The Ohio legislature is on the verge of approving one of the country's most wide-reaching bills allowing concealed firearms in places that serve alcohol, including bars and stadiums."

"Of all the problems facing the beleaguered Nevada System of Higher Education, which one seems so urgent that the Legislature would take it up? Perhaps it’s how to deal with deep budget cuts, which will be at least $200 million when you count the loss of federal stimulus money? Or access for underprivileged students? Or graduation rates? Or the division of resources between UNR and UNLV?"

"Well, if you guessed any of those, you’d be wrong. The real pressing issue? We’ve got to make it easier for people to carry concealed firearms on campus. Hell yeah!" ...

... "In the 1990s, more than 40 cities and counties sued gun manufacturers, arguing that the companies had flooded the market with weapons they knew would fall into criminals' hands."

"Camden County said firearms manufacturers had created a public nuisance, and it sought damages for the costs related to gun crimes. More than 12 people represented the companies in federal appeals court in 2001, including Patterson, an attorney for Colt's Manufacturing. The companies were victorious."

"At the Judiciary Committee hearing, senators should go through every state gun law and ask if Patterson plans to invalidate them, said David Kairys, the Temple law professor who began the effort against gun companies." ...

Submitter's note: Yea, let's not talk about PREVENTING rape with the proper self defense tool. Let's not talk about shooting the attempted rapist so there's no need to wait decades for justice. Let's keep women weak and begging government to save them. More rapists in prison? How bout less rape? We'd better avoid how NY forbids women from protecting themselves.

"For some in the ongoing civil rights saga over the 2nd Amendment in California, the issue of Open Carry is merely academic. Democrat legislators in Sacramento decry common, law-abiding citizens carrying properly-holstered and openly displayed handguns on California streets because they believe that it represents a threat to public safety. Despite not being able to cite even one single case of an Open Carry advocate ever committing a violent crime in California, these anti-gun politicians press on to demonize a class of law-abiding citizens in the Golden State to try and revive a floundering anti-gun political agenda that is quickly losing ground across the State and the country." ...

"In a rebuttal to a letter by Mark McCoy, Bev Mattison (May 6) naively states: 'McCoy should know -- society needs laws, some of which are extremely unpopular. That does not mean we are free to break them.'"

"Mattison is wrong. We are free to break them and some laws should be intentionally broken. Openly breaking an unconstitutional law is the best way to challenge an asinine law by being arrested. Rights are worth the possible consequence for failing in a challenge." ...

"The logic (or more accurately lack thereof) of Ryan Snyder, who wrote that 'Guns don’t belong in public places' (May 27), is astounding."

"First, I am assuming from his letter that he would be in favor of a law banning privately held handguns from public places. Second, I am assuming he feels such a law would prevent someone such as [the Tucson shooter] from attacking someone with said gun in a public place." ...
