"The [SAF] and the [CCRKBA] have joined with Knife Rights to help fight this unwarranted knife grab by Customs. Alan Gottlieb CCRKBA Chairman noted, 'we stand with Knife Rights in their support of Americans' right to own and carry the knives of their choice.'"

"And, just a reminder, the Second Amendment doesn't say 'Firearms,' it says 'Arms,' and knives are clearly covered.

"The U.S. Government is after your Pocket Knives! In a sneak attack, U.S. Customs has proposed revoking earlier rulings that assisted opening knives are not switchblades. The proposal would not only outlaw assisted opening knives, its overly broad new definition of a switchblade would also include all one-handed opening knives and most other pocket knives!" ...

"Her voice is loud and reaches far. Here's what it's saying:

" 'Round Up Hate-Promoters Now, Before Any More Holocaust Museum Attacks...something must be done about ridding the Internet and the public dialogue of hate speech...Isn't it time we started rounding up promoters of hate before they kill?' "

"We've seen how some would like to exploit the Holocaust Museum shooting to erode liberty. We've seen how some would like to enact preventive measures against what they perceive as "hate speech" to the point of rounding up it's 'promoters'."

"Which brings us to a question I said I'd explore today: At what point do others have a right to intervene with our freedom of expression? And what does that have to do with 'gun rights'?"

"Yesterday Columnist Bill Moyers, a senior writer at PBS, wrote a commentary in the wake of last week's crazy man's attack on the Holocaust Museum here in Washington, DC entitled 'Why have we stopped talking about guns?'"

"Moyers mounts the tragedy as if it were a literary tree stand to blast pretty much every group or politician who is not taking action to curtail gun rights. Moyer's double barreled shotgun blasts reached far and wide ..." ...

"As in most anti-gun rhetoric, Moyers forgets to note that there are millions of defensive uses of guns each year which save lives. ..." ...

"In the famous Agatha Cristie novel And Then There Were None a group of people on an island mysteriously begins to die off due to accident or foul play."

"Thankfully, this is happening in real life today with state bans on carrying concealed handgun guns for lawful purposes in alcohol serving restaurants. Last year Georgia repealed its ban on concealed carry in restaurants, and today Tennessee's ban died as well ..."

"That means there are only 9 states left banning concealed carry in alcohol serving restaurants. ..." ...

"But unlike the world of novels, onerous restrictions on gun rights don't just mysteriously disappear. Gun control laws tend to have great inertia and it takes a lot of work to repeal." ...
 

Enforce the gun laws that we already have

"I have to respond to the stuff that Paul Klienebreil recently wrote in the paper. The security guard Kleinebreil stated that we need more gun laws. Bull! There are already numerous gun laws on the books and laws are made continuously outlawing the same things over and over again."

"The biggest problem has been the lack of enforcement of the current laws. Most laws broken with use of a firearm are punishable under federal laws, but it rarely happens. Federal laws have more severe penalties and don't roll over on the sentencing." ...

"He also states that if gun owners feel that law enforcement is not able to protect us properly, then we should stop paying taxes. Where do I sign up, Mr. Klienebreil? ..." ...

Submitter's Note: How about enforcing the only gun law that matters? A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

"Specifically about the Obama Administration's calls for so called, 'assault weapons' bans. Max Brantley (AKA the insufferable hack) is telling his readers that Obama has never proposed an, 'assault weapons' ban."

"This from the Insufferable Hack, 'Attorney General Dustin McDaniel is not going to miss an opportunity to demagogue a gun issue, as he does today by joining a minority of U.S. attorney generals[sic] in a letter opposing a renewal of U.S. limits on certain types of semi-automatic rifles. ...'

"'It's also a straw man. McDaniel is opposing something President Obama has not proposed.'
Emphasis mine."

"This last sentence is a complete falsehood. And it's not that hard to prove it either." ...
-------

KABA Note: Even an 'insufferable hack' should know that the plural of attorney general is attorneys general, not attorney generals.

"Gun rights groups said attempts by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to defuse a showdown on Second Amendment rights have done little to assuage their concerns."

"Gun Owners of America is actively lobbying against Judge Sotomayor's confirmation, but the National Rifle Association has yet to take a position."

"The way the NRA chooses to go could have consequences for moderate to conservative Democrats who helped their party develop a staggering advantage in the Senate."

"'All options are on the table,' said Andrew Arulanandam, NRA spokesman. 'The rulings she has made are troubling, and concern us.'"

"Whether the NRA includes the Sotomayor vote on its scorecard ... could weigh heavily ..." ...
 

Politics of the Gun

"Congress has shamefully caved in, yet again, to the gun lobby and abandoned the effort to grant the long-suffering District of Columbia a voting representative in the House. Hopes for passage were high this year, until the historic measure was poisoned in the Senate with an amendment to strip the district’s government of its power to enact responsible gun control laws."

"Sadly, the district's need for strong controls was dramatized Wednesday when a man the authorities identified as a white supremacist opened fire with a rifle and killed a guard at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum." ...
-------

KABA Note: So the gunmen was unhindered by the district's "strong controls" and stopped by an armed man and the Times thinks more gun control is the solution?

"When I was 15, I got my first guns." ...

"Who listens to Rush religiously? Who hates the changes Obama has already made?"

"Who in America is bitter, and 'cling to guns?'

"The same people I used to know. The old veterans and retired policemen who rose up in bars, lodges, and gun shows after Ruby Ridge, Waco, and Oklahoma City, and cursed their own 'government.' These are the people who join militias not to protect America, but to maintain their version of it, from of all entities, 'the government.'"

"Now the head of that government is a black man."

"But these men wear no warning labels. ..." ...
 

Where did he get his ideas? (second letter)

FULL TEXT BELOW:

It is reasonable to ascribe some measure of "credit" to the National Rifle Association for creating individuals like the killer of a security guard at the National Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.

Among his rantings and ravings is found the allegation that President Obama, a "creation of the Jews," is planning to seize all of the people's weapons. Where would an individual get such a loony idea? Certainly not from the president, who has repeatedly stated he respects the Second Amendment.

It is the NRA that is instilling fear and paranoia in its members by making the phony charge that the president is planning to rob members of their precious lethal weapons.

... "You know by now that in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, an elderly white supremacist and anti-Semite named James W. von Brunn allegedly walked into the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum with a .22-caliber rifle and killed a security guard before being brought down himself." ...

"There is much talk about hate talk; hate crimes against blacks, whites, immigrants, Muslims, Jews; about violence committed in the name of bigotry or religion. But why don't we talk about guns?"

"We're arming ourselves to death. Even as gunshots ricocheted around the country, an amendment allowing concealed weapons in national parks snuck into the popular credit card reform bill. ..." ...

KABA Note: Why do Bill and Mike say the shooter was "brought down" without mentioning that it was done with guns?

FULL TEXT BELOW:

An Oakland, Tennessee man fatally shot an intruder trying to climb in his window early Monday morning.

The incident occurred on the 400-block of Bell Grove Road. The homeowner heard what sounded like a knock on his window around 12:30am. When the noise grew, the homeowner found a neighbor, 32-year old Anthony Webb, breaking through his window with a rake.

The homeowner tells FOX13 that he told the man repeatedly to stop, but Webb's reply was "What are you going to do?"

The intruder was shot three times, and was declared dead upon arrival by local police.

The homeowner also tells FOX13 that the intruder's father was a high school classmate of his.

"... At a park near Prestonsburg, Ky., last year, a bear held tourists at bay inside a cabin until rangers arrived to chase it away." ...

"Biologists with the same group found nearly 20,000 reported conflicts between bears and humans in 37 states in a 2006 survey of state wildlife agencies."

"These are baffling times on the front lines of America's great culture wars. ... But on the third major battlefield, there is no doubt. More than ever, guns are in."

"Why that is so is a matter of debate. Some blame today's hard economic times. ... Others suggest the election of Barack Obama prompted a surge in gun purchases, due to fears that a new president, long demonised by the right as an urban anti-gun liberal, would seek to ban entire categories of weapons, or at least curb imports and impose higher taxes on both guns and ammunition. Such worries were a curious misreading of a candidate who, during the campaign, promised to take a common-sense ... approach to the issue. But the figures speak for themselves." ...
 

'Lone wolf' terrorists harder to stop

... "Each suspect had a history that suggested trouble. Each apparently was driven to act by beliefs considered by some as extreme. Each shooter fits the description of a 'lone wolf' terrorist, a killer whose attack, authorities say, is harder to head off than if planned by a trained terrorist network."

"'It could be anyone. It could be the guy next door, living in the basement of his mother's place, on the Internet just building himself up with hate, building himself up to a boiling point and finally using what he's learned,' said John Perren, head of the counterterrorism branch at the FBI's Washington field office." ...
-------

KABA Note: Obviously we need to police the Internet to make sure there is no dangerous terrorist training material out there. Oh, and we can't have 'hateful speech' either, so shut down chat rooms, forums and talk radio.

"New Jersey State Trooper Robert Higbee was in hot pursuit of revenue ... when he ran a stop sign and his cruiser collided with a minivan. At the time Higbee was speeding in pursuit of a speeder, doing at least 65 m.ph. in a 35 m.p.h. zone."

"The collision, for which Higbee was entirely to blame, took the lives of two [teen] passengers ..."

"Had Higbee been a productive private citizen as opposed to a tax-feeder of the enforcer caste, he would almost certainly have been convicted of vehicular homicide."

"But thanks in part to the light touch of Superior Court Judge Raymond Batten and Cape May County assistant prosecutor David Meyer, a jury saw fit to acquit the trooper of the charge." ...

"When undercover detectives busted Jose and Maximo Colon last year for selling cocaine at a seedy club in Queens, there was a glaring problem: The brothers hadn't done anything wrong."

"But proclaiming innocence wasn't going to be good enough. The Dominican immigrants needed proof."

"'I sat in the jail and thought ... how could I prove this? What could I do?' Jose, 24, recalled in Spanish during a recent interview."

"As he glanced around a holding cell, the answer came to him: Security cameras. Since then, a vindicating video from the club's cameras has spared the brothers a possible prison term, resulted in two officers' arrest and become the basis for a multimillion-dollar lawsuit." ...

"Marty Korecky likes to target shoot fairly regularly, but lately he's been cutting back."

"A Shillington resident, Korecky is worried that if he uses up his ammunition, he'll have a really hard time getting more."

"And he has reason to be concerned."

"Demand for ammo — particularly for handguns and rifles — is so strong that retailers can barely keep it in stock, and some are even resorting to rationing. Prices are skyrocketing, too."

"The start of the shortage can be traced back a few years, when military demand for ammunition was very high because of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan."

"But the election of President Barack Obama has apparently worsened the situation ..." ...

"Three, maybe four times every year, Wolf Hollow Archery in Chillicothe hosts classes for local residents to get certified to carry a handgun when walking on the sidewalk, driving down the street, or going to the grocery store."

"At the most, the class has attracted 20 people. An instructor will guide the attendees through a daylong course in handgun laws, proper handling of a gun, and the locations where it's OK to possess a handgun."

"If they pass the course, attendees will get a permit valid to carry a concealed weapon in Utah."

"Derek Howald of Chillicothe has had his Utah permit for four years. It's reciprocal (that means it's a valid permit) in 29 other states."

"In Illinois, it's worthless." ...

"It's billed as the largest and most comprehensive shooting facility in the United States."

"The NRA Whittington Center in northeastern New Mexico is devoted to the competitive, recreational and educational uses of firearms ranging from pistols to hunting rifles."

"'There are lots of smaller ranges across the country, but nothing I'm aware of, other than getting onto a military facility, that has as large an operation as we do,' executive director Wayne Armacost said."

"And don't get hung up on the first three letters in its name."

"Armacost said that while the National Rifle Association's acronym is part of the facility's name, the center doesn't venture into Second Amendment politics ..." ...

Submitter's Note: Yeah, Wayne, don't worry about those pesky Second Amendment rights, we'll carry your water.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Those, who have the command of the arms in a country are masters of the state, and have it in their power to make what revolutions they please. [Thus,] there is no end to observations on the difference between the measures likely to be pursued by a minister backed by a standing army, and those of a court awed by the fear of an armed people. — Aristotle, as quoted by John Trenchard and Water Moyle, An Argument Shewing, That a Standing Army Is Inconsistent with a Free Government, and Absolutely Destructive to the Constitution of the English Monarchy [London, 1697].
