"Have you heard about the latest from Customs and Border Patrol? They now want to classify nearly every pocket knife out there as a 'switchblade.' If that weren't enough, they've limited the period for comments to only 30 days and refused to consider extending that period by 120 days. The deadline is June 21. But wait! There's more!!! Not content with all of that, these guys decided that they didn't want to let people comment via email. No, they think it's better to require actual letters written on paper and mailed with stamps. You've got to wonder if they really even want to hear from us. Of course it could also be that they know that people will tell them that a better idea would be for them to… Ok, I won't quite go there." ...
 

Second Amendment a necessity

"The ideal society would be one in which everyone lived in harmony, the only weapons were words and they were used to talk things out. Violence would be done away with because understanding would run rampant. It is ideal and yet it appears to be unattainable. There will always be a power hungry individual who desires to take the shortcut to power and neutralize any opposition."

"Because of this it becomes necessary to defend ones right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Since the very formation of the constitution by our inspired forefathers the need for the general public to defend itself against tyranny and corruption has been acknowledged. ..." ...

Women on Target: Preparing women to defend Liberty

The United Kingdom and Australia instituted gun bans in 1997. Between 1995 and 2006, women in the United Kingdom suffered a 76.5% increase in rape; by 2007 Australian women experienced a 29.9% increase. Meanwhile, rape decreased 31.7% in America.*"

"Today, women are raped twice as often in the UK as America, and Australian women are raped three times as often. This is damning evidence that gun control places women at greater risk. American women are hearing this message, and more and more are arming themselves every day, not only to protect themselves and their families from harm, but to ensure our government doesn’t enact laws which disenfranchise women." ...

Of Civil Wars, Apaches and "Social Futurism" -- "Leave us the hell alone!"

Some of you I know have already seen this piece by Sara Robinson at alternet.org entitled, "Does the Right Want a Civil War?" (http://www.alternet.org/blogs/peek/140623)

I decided to reply to Ms. Robinson and that reply, sent to her via email, is below. The thing that amazes me is how blithely liberals talk about civil war. It's as if they have no concern for the butcher's bill -- the stench of burning bodies, the sight of dead babies in the ditch, fires in the night. You'd think it was antiseptic. But to invite one just to try to intimidate a political opponent?

"The City of Peoria, Illinois wants to be a test city for allowing law abiding city to be licensed to carry concealed handguns for self-defense. An online poll showed 51% of respondents supported the proposal, while only 13% oppose it. Without seeing the poll, I'd assume the balance are undecided."

"Naturally, gun control pundits oppose the plan and give dire warnings that 'research proves concealed weapons could add to crime.'"

"However, the opposite is true. A great deal of research has been done into the issue of lawfully armed citizens and their effect on crime rates. The vast majority show that at worst, it has no net result on crime rates ..." ...
 

Drug Control Begets Gun Control

"During his April visit to Mexico, President Barack Obama suggested that Americans are partly to blame for the appalling violence associated with the illegal drug trade there. 'The demand for these drugs in the United States is what's helping keep these cartels in business,' he said. 'This war is being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States.'"

"Obama is right that the U.S. is largely responsible for the carnage in Mexico, which claimed more than 6,000 lives last year. But the problem is neither the drugs Americans buy nor the guns they sell ... Instead of acknowledging the failure of drug control, Obama is using it as an excuse for an equally vain attempt at gun control." ...

"The Left in America is still seventeen years old. It still breaks all the rules because it feels that it can, or worse, that it is somehow justified in its cause. This solipsism is killing the country." ...

"... as long as statists externalize the causes and perceptions of their personal problems, they will never cure them. As with gun control, it is not where crime is fought. This is why gun control doesn't work for safety, but it feels good to the statist. The political arena is not where personal anxiety is fought or cured. It, too, doesn't work, but it feels good to the statist. This is at the core of all feel-good legislation, including health care. that won't work, either, because it is conceived for all the wrong reasons." ...

It seems Identity has a big piece of the Shawna Forde case, too. Hey, if we get lucky the cartels will declare war on Hayden Lake and all their fellow-travelers. If that happens, all we'll have to do is count the guilty bodies of both sides as they stack up. And if this spreads to the prisons, it could end up saving the taxpayers a considerable dime.

OUTSTANDING!

DNA extracted from the shirt was matched to Bush, who had . . . convictions for possession of stolen property, unlawful possession of a firearm (etc.). After his release from prison, Bush moved to Hayden Lake, Idaho, where he lived until 2007, according to court papers. Wenatchee police "learned Bush has had long-standing ties to Aryan Nations groups".

... "... Now that Democrats have won the White House and solid majorities in Congress, one of the nation's strongest lobbies, the [NRA], has been on a real upswing. As it turns out, 'Obama's been good for business,' Scott Vogel of Freedom States Alliance told BuzzFlash today ..."

"But since January, the NRA has enjoyed tremendous message success along with legislative success. On the message side, the NRA did everything in its power to scare the wits out of conservatives. 'They're coming to take your guns away,' was the warning, with the result that there was a tremendous run on guns and ammo. Buyers literally emptied gun store shelves, and dealers and manufacturers, who provide deep financial support to the NRA, raked in the dough." ...

Submitter's Note: Yes, the NRA has made people buy 10.3 million guns between 10/08 and 05/09 because they have that kind of power. /sarcasm

"As the nation reels from the recent shooting at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, we realize how important the issue of gun control is. Lives are literally at stake, and a politician’s stance on the issue is a strong indicator of one’s deepest morals. Regrettably, Kirsten Gillibrand has done a complete 180 on the issue of gun control and a slew of other important issues. Having represented a conservative-leaning House district, she’s been given an A+ rating by the National Rifle Association, has slept with guns under her bed, and voted to ban all gun registration and trigger-lock laws in the District of Columbia. This record in itself appalls me ..." ...

"Frustrated by the expanded power of Washington, a growing number of state lawmakers are defying the federal government and passing legislation aimed at rolling back the reach of Congress and President Obama."

"While many measures are symbolic ones declaring the sovereignty of states, some Westerners are taking more dramatic steps. One Utah lawmaker wants to limit federal law enforcement in his state. In Montana, legislators enacted a bill that flagrantly ignores federal firearm restrictions, hoping to force a constitutional showdown." ...

Submitter's note: yes, they're mocking us, our constitution, our liberties, and our state sovereignty, but at least they're publicizing all of the above, which is good for our constitution, our liberties etc.

"Per the National Association for Gun Rights Blog:"

"This strategy could have some very real — and negative — consequences for gun owners. If the federal government sets the standard for when and where to carry a gun, then state laws governing the issuance of permits will be next on the chopping block." ...

"Gary Marbut isn't aiming to eliminate federal gun laws. He just wants to make them much less relevant."

"Marbut ... is one of the leaders of a new grassroots movement that's seeking to invoke the principle of states' rights -- including states' own authority to regulate firearms -- to thwart what he and his allies view as an increasingly overreaching federal government." ...

"This modern-day federalist revolt began with a Montana state law ... It says that firearms, ammunition, and accessories manufactured entirely inside Montana are not subject to federal regulation, including background checks for buyers and record-keeping requirements for sellers. They would remain subject to state regulation." ...

"HB2474 would require businesses to allow employees and patrons to bring firearms into parking areas as long as the guns stayed locked in their vehicles and would allow lawsuits against businesses that violate the law if anyone is injured or killed because a gun owner could not access a weapon. SB1113 would require restaurants to allow people who are not drinking alcohol to bring their guns onto the premises, unless they post signs at every door to keep weapons out.

"Shifting political sands in Albany can cause just about any lawful gun owner heartache these days. If you haven't heard about it already, New York Senate Bill 4397A is a big reason." ...

"According to the bill, 'firearm micro-stamping is an evolutionary forensic technology that produces an alpha-numeric and geometric code onto the rear of the cartridge casing each time a semiautomatic pistol is fired.'"

"The idea is that law enforcement can then use that code to identify the owner of the pistol and generally aid investigations."

"Every new semiautomatic pistol sold in New York state would have to have this micro-stamping technology built into the gun, or it could not be sold here." ...

"In 2006, the Ohio Republican Party employed a strategy of supporting candidates with state-wide name recognition (and anti-gun records) over pro-gun candidates that were less well-known."

"The state party ... backed anti-gun Jeanette Bradley over pro-gun Sandy O'Brien for Treasurer, and anti-gun candidate Betty Montgomery over pro-gun candidate Tim Grendell for Attorney General."

"Believing that 'O'Brien can't win' in November, party leaders sunk the party's resources into Bradley. Despite having earned statewide name recognition while serving as Lt. Governor in the Taft administration, and despite her opponent having almost no resources ... pro-gun Sandy O'Brien defeated anti-gun Jeanette Bradley in the primary." ...

"... Ogre he may not be. Petty tyrant with a gun he most certainly is. And both he and his tantrum make the case for two badly needed reforms."

"First ... nobody who has served in the military should ever be permitted to work as a civilian police officer. Martin’s conduct is typical of a solider in an army of occupation; perhaps he thought that Mr. White, a black man, could be treated like a 'Haji.'"

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
