"Today’s development with Dennis makes it appear to be a criminal act unrelated to larger goals, although that will not be determined until he is apprehended. It also makes it clear that lawful gun owners cannot be rationally held responsible for his alleged actions."
 

Obama's greatest 'frustration' is his failure to trample 2nd Amendment enough

During a question and answer session at the White House Tuesday, President Obama stated that he is often asked what is his biggest reason for disappointment in his time in the White House, and the answer should not surprise gun rights advocates.
["]My biggest frustration so far, is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of, you know, people who can do, you know, just unbelievable damage.["]
But wait a second. Who would these people be?

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America called on their troops to join the “stroller jam” outside of Targets Shareholders meeting in Dallas to protest open carry in their stores. Unfortunately for them, a group of 12 showed up.
The dozen women were holding signs that stated, "Texas moms expect more” which is a play on Target’s motto of “Expect More. Pay Less.” ...
Although it was called the “stroller jam,” Dallas News reported only one woman showed up with a stroller and her granddaughter.
 

US pushing local police departments to keep quiet on cell-phone surveillance technology

The Obama administration has been quietly advising local police not to disclose details about surveillance technology they are using to sweep up basic cellphone data from entire neighborhoods, The Associated Press has learned.
Citing security reasons, the U.S. has intervened in routine state public records cases and criminal trials regarding use of the technology. This has resulted in police departments withholding materials or heavily censoring documents in rare instances when they disclose any about the purchase and use of such powerful surveillance equipment.
Federal involvement in local open records proceedings is unusual.

And should the unthinkable event happen, evidence that being armed makes anyone safer is far from compelling. Consider the almost dizzying rash of random murders that has filled the newscasts just in the last three weeks. Crazed shooters in Santa Barbara, Calif., Seattle, and Las Vegas have killed strangers in public. In the last of these, the assailants shot to death two police officers who were carrying their weapons in full view in a pizzeria. Before that rampage ended, a would-be hero citizen confronted the couple using his own weapon – and got himself killed.
 

MA: Glock sales at center of suit against Coakley over handgun regs

The plaintiffs, licensed firearms owners who wish to purchase Glock pistols or retailers who want to sell them, claim Coakley has declared Glock handguns lack an “effective” load indicator even though regulations fail to specify how the device is supposed to function or what it is intended to do.

According to Comm2A, certain Glock pistols have an “extractor-based load indicator” that is virtually identical to guns made by other manufacturers that are legal in Massachusetts.
 

Outlaw President Calls for Increased “Infringement” of 2nd Amendment!

Clearly, when it comes to 2nd Amendment rights, Barack Obama is the self-appointed “Infringer-in-chief.”

Has it ever occurred to Obama that his sanctimonious demands for tough new gun laws are essentially ignored by Congress and the public, largely due to the fact that Obama refuses to acknowledge, much less enforce, existing rule of law when it comes to borders and immigration?

But a bill passed in the state Legislature this year could nullify the city's new ordinance if Gov. Jay Nixon signs it.

The Senate measure forbids municipalities from creating ordinances prohibiting the open carrying of firearms for anyone with a concealed carry permit. The bill also would eliminate any current municipal ordinance denying open carry to people with the proper permits.

Nixon has not said whether he will veto the measure.

Lang Sias pulled off to the side of the road. He was less than a mile from the offices of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners in Windsor, and the state senate candidate was conflicted. The RMGO candidate survey, which he intended to deliver in person, sat on his passenger seat. After pausing for almost 20 minutes, Sias chose not to make what felt like a deal with the devil. He turned around and headed home to Arvada.

"I just couldn't do it," Sias says. "For me to [run for state senate], I'll be beholden to the Constitution and to the people of the district, not an outside power broker. At the end of the day, I'd rather lose than be in that guy's pocket."

CASA, in turn, promotes a range of collaborative initiatives to support the implementation of the PoA and the U.N. instruments associated with it. In particular, CASA has embarked on the development of International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS), which “fit within the global framework” of the PoA, the other U.N. instruments, and the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The most controversial ISACS modules, including one on “controls over the access of civilians to small arms,” are still forthcoming.[2]

We must do something about access to guns in this country, say the proponents of gun control. Opponents of gun control counter by claiming that Americans have the right to have guns and that right should never be taken from them. And we bystanders grow weary of the debate, since we know that nothing will come of it and the killing will continue.

Framingham and Natick men are among several people and groups suing Attorney General Martha Coakley over a handgun regulation they claim is too ambiguous.

Robert Draper of Framingham and Robert Boudrie of Natick are among six Massachusetts residents who sought to buy Glock handguns and are seeking a preliminary injunction barring enforcement of the regulation. Gun dealers Concord Armory of Concord and Precision Point Firearms of Woburn are also plaintiffs along with nonprofit groups Second Amendment Foundation and Commonwealth Second Amendment.

Some think that what we lack on the federal level is the sort of “common sense” reciprocity agreements for concealed carry permitting that we do for driver’s licenses.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) has offered Senate Bill 1908: The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014, in hopes of rectifying this glaring gap in our state-level reciprocity laws. Cornyn and the bill’s other co-sponsors hope to ensure that citizens won’t face the sort of persecution that Florida resident John Filippidis did as he traveled through rabidly anti-gun Maryland.

Lawmakers should not be so terrified of a small group that they allow citizens' safety to be in peril every day, especially in the public schools that are supposed to be havens of safety and education.

The main argument for keeping semi-automatic weapons legal goes back to the second amendment - that citizens should be able to form a militia. Ha! How did that work out for David Koresh? He tried to stockpile weapons and form his own army and a S.W.A.T. team invaded. The government has nukes and tanks and foreign connections. No little neighborhood gang is going to win that fight. There is no place for semi-automatic weapons in a civilized society.

Ultimately, it may take concerted public pressure on Congress to get any traction on sensible gun sale restrictions. No one is proposing to take guns away from law-abiding, rational citizens, but not everyone with access to guns falls into that category.

And still, as the body count mounts, the gun lobby opposes common-sense efforts to deal with that small group of people.

As President Obama said after Tuesday's shooting, "There's no advanced, developed country on Earth that would put up with this."

A group with the hard-to-acronym name of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America protested at Target’s downtown HQ this week, part of a larger effort to persuade the retailer to forbid “Open Carry.” Some guys in Texas have been going into Target stores carrying their rifles, as local law permits. They also carried them into fast-food restaurants. Some Second Amendment supporters approve. Some think it’s not ­particularly persuasive.
 

NC: Bringing Durham County NC Into The 21st Century – Repeal Racist Gun Registry

As you’ve undoubtedly heard in prior Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC) alerts, there’s a bill working its way through the North Carolina Senate to repeal Durham County’s Jim Crow-era firearms registry.
Enacted in 1935, the registry was a way for the sheriff to capriciously apply “gun control” to people based on their skin color. The blatantly racist gun registry in Durham County has long outlived its purpose and it needs to go. Now!

It’s 3 a.m. and a family is asleep when an intruder breaks through a door and throws an explosive device into a portable play-pen where a baby is sleeping. The terrified and disoriented family have guns pointed in their faces. A child screams in pain from the burns on his face and the wound that left him gasping for air. The family is unable to call police for help, because the police are the ones who smashed in their door and threw the flash-bang grenade that injured the child.
 

Harry Reid Revives Call for Universal Gun Registration

Like a vampire who can’t stop sucking the blood of horrific tragedies, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid is once again pushing to suck political gain from the pain of others.

Speaking on the floor of the Senate in the wake of the shooting of three people in Las Vegas, Reid said that the “American people are depending” on the Senate to pass universal gun registry to, supposedly, keep guns out of the hands of people like the Las Vegas killers.

After the Troutdale, Oregon, shooting in a “safety-free school zone,” anti-gun Senator Joe Manchin called for reconsideration of his anti-gun legislation, and one particularly virulent gun-hating TV network took to attacking the Second Amendment every hour on the hour.
 

Did CNN just call Bloomberg’s ‘Everytown’ group liars?

Having used what may be a faulty statistic on the number of school shootings since the December 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy, CNN reported that it “took a closer look at the list” that has been pandered by Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown for Gun Safety,” and its associated group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA).

Now, CNN is not alone in its questioning of the statistic. The Portland Oregonian, National Review and Spectator all have on-line stories. And Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, has issued a press release suggesting that Bloomberg change the name of his $50 million organization to "Every Liar for Gun Safety."

CNN has also jumped on the bandwagon with this, and is now saying that actually, there have been only 15 school shootings since Sandy Hook. Making for one every five weeks, which is just totally not that big a deal or anything.

Using these values for Canada, the avoidance of a single homicide would save nearly $10 million (in terms of 2014 U.S. dollars) per each 100,000 members of its population. Meanwhile, Canada's additional 337 assaults compared to the U.S. would appear to be costing Canadians $39,712,417 per each 100,000 members of its population. Or rather, Canadians are bearing the costs of $4 in assaults for every $1 they benefit from fewer murders.
