"There was much news over the weekend, the most recent being a piece in yesterday’s Christian Science Monitor, quoting would-be president Hillary Rodham Clinton, who said Saturday that the nation needs 'common-sense gun control reforms.'"

"She was speaking to the U.S. Conference of Mayors, many of whom have belonged to anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s [MAIG]. That’s the group with the public relations problem of explaining how so many of its former members have been convicted of various crimes that landed at least some of them in prison."

"A Wall Street Journal blog indicated that among Clinton’s 'reforms' would be the so-called 'universal background check.' Background checks have worked so well in recent years ..." ...

"Conservatives, libertarians, and gun rights activists have long suspected that many elected representatives, political consultants, and even some religious leaders secretly push a nefarious agenda that directly attacks the liberties and rights of ordinary citizens. Today at least two of these persons tipped their hand, making comments that raised the eyebrows of even the most seasoned journalists."

"Karl Rove, appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, stated in no uncertain terms that the only way to stop gun violence is to remove the Second Amendment rights of citizens. Another journalist referred to Rove as a longtime advocate of gun control." ...

"'The U.S. Supreme Court dealt Second Amendment supporters a major defeat by refusing to hear an appeal filed by San Francisco gun owners seeking to overturn that city’s requirement that all handguns kept at home and not carried on the owner’s person be 'stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock.' reason.com wrote earlier this month. 'The action by the Court leaves that gun control ordinance on the books.' Justices Thomas and Scalia wrote a stirring dissent (available here).

Were Guns “Much More” Strictly Regulated in the 1920s and 1930s?

"Last week, Time magazine published a piece that pushes the narrative that today’s firearms laws are permissive in comparison to those of the early 20th century."

"Titled, 'Guns Were Much More Strictly Regulated in the 1920s and 1930s than They Are Today,' the piece contends that 'Those who look to America’s past to extol a time when nothing stood between an American and a gun need to look again.'"

"The obvious goal of the work is to convince the uninformed that any notions they might have about America’s long-standing culture of gun ownership should pose no barrier to future restrictions, particularly on the ownership of semi-automatic firearms." ...

"Following last week’s shooting in Charleston, White House press secretary Josh Earnest implied during his daily press briefing that Americans don’t need to own weapons that aren’t used for hunting."

"'You don’t need an assault rifle to go hunting,' Earnest said. 'It’s not part of your family heritage.'"

"Whether his mischaracterization of the Second Amendment and its defenders was intentional or merely based on ignorance of this country’s history and laws, we can’t say. But his statement was most certainly ignorant on multiple counts." ...

... "But I think the rest of us can have a discussion about what the best policy on guns is without involving those in mourning. Doing so isn’t some sinister attempt to 'never let a crisis go to waste' or politicize or exploit the tragedy; it’s entirely appropriate to talk about what can be done to minimize derailments after a train goes off the tracks ... We can do the same with guns, without descending into name-calling, and without trying to get those who have lost loved ones take a side in the debate."

"That said, as a supporter of gun rights, I’d like to see us get rid of some of the bad arguments for owning and carrying guns that are once again getting attention:" ...

"To say the very least, articles questioning the advisability of gun control are few and far between on HuffingtonPost.com. Recently, however, a blogger on the normally anti-gun website expressed views that are liable to work gun control supporters into a tizzy."

"In a piece titled In Gun Control Controversy, Can Americans Handle the Truth?, self-described public relations consultant Mario Almonte says that in countries plagued by corrupt governments, violent religious fanatics, and civil war, people would 'welcome guns to protect themselves and their families' and would consider gun control 'absurd' and its advocates 'extraordinarily naïve.'" ...

"Defending yourself with a gun is not something any rational person ever wants to do. It's something you do only when there is no other choice."

"And the personal toll it can take on your mental wellbeing can be surprising, often referred to as 'post shooting syndrome.' TV dramas and blockbuster movies portray good guys shooting bad guys in heroic fashion. But in the real world, it seldom feels heroic."

"Here's a list from an article on PoliceLink that summarizes a few of the psychological effects of post shooting syndrome. This information focuses on police officers who have had to shoot in the line of duty, but the effects are the same for civilians." ...

"Accuracy is everything in my world. A gun isn’t good if it can’t hit the target. One of the ways to improve the accuracy of your rifle is to change the chassis, since the usual stock that comes with most bolt action rifles is terrible in every way. For a good chassis, you would normally expect to pay a ton of money — Dual Strike demands north of $2,000 for their chassis system. But MDT is a company constantly improving their chassis for the budget minded shooter, and the latest incarnation is the HS3." ...

"When I need to do some shooting (and boy do I), I have two options. I can head forty five minutes north to Best of the West or two hours to the west to my family ranch. Best of the West is certainly nice, and for times when I have just one thing that needs testing, I’ll head that way. But I do my best thinking behind the windshield, I have a boss who is supportive of me taking a random Wednesday off, and my parents are working on trying out retirement. More often than not, a trip to the ranch seems to be winning the tossup. Long story short, I’ve been shooting a lot more over the last eight months, and a lot of that lead has been hitting a berm I didn’t have to pay an hourly rate for. But that shooting isn’t without a price . . ." ...

... "There is one aspect of the massacre, though, that is barely talked about in public: the nation’s gun laws. This might seem strange to Europeans, but America is a historically and culturally different environment when it comes to the use of firearms by private individuals."

"Politically, the issue of gun ownership has become poisoned over the years. Today, it is quite impossible to pass stricter gun control legislation, as the gun lobby has a firm grip on national and state lawmakers and fends off even the most minimal changes to the status quo – despite the fact that public opinion is highly favorable of, say, stricter background checks of prospective gun buyers." ...

The NRA had nothing to do with the heinous murders in Charleston, and neither did Congress, or the Americans wishing to preserve their own rights to self-defense via personal firearms. This was the evil and murderous act of one man. And yet only a few days after the tragedy, O’Malley and the president and millions of others had constructed a pulpit over the yet unfilled victims’ graves, targeting Second Amendment advocates and extracting the usual political currency that gun control advocates immediately seek to gain in the wake of such crimes." ...

"Both incidents are horrific, but one is inarguably worse than the other.

"What we do is we arm up even more."

"By now maybe it shouldn’t be surprising — but still, it was — that the massacre at the Charleston church Wednesday night touched off a call not for fewer guns in our society, but for more. And that you should bring your firearm with you right into church."

"'Arm Our Churches' reads the emailed statement from a gun-rights group called the Second Amendment Organization (or 2AO.) It called Friday for its 160,000 members to bring guns to church and help provide comprehensive gun training for church communities." ...

"After some initial pessimism on Friday, Barack Obama has geared up over the weekend, pushing to enact some as yet undefined reform of gun laws in the United States. When he first addressed the actions of the murderer and white supremacist [redacted], he noted that 'this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries'. Then immediately he pointed to the contradiction that defines the issue – the same contradiction that has defined the latter half of his presidency. 'It is in our power to do something about it,' but 'I say that recognizing the politics in this town foreclose a lot of those avenues right now.'" ...

"I have spent a good deal of time during the last three years making the moral, legal, and philosophical case for the right of the people to keep and bear arms, and I shall not repeat that brief here. Likewise, I shall not repeat my earlier observation that nothing President Obama has proposed so much as intersects with what happened in Charleston. Instead, I would like to explain briefly why I think that to blame the Second Amendment itself — and, for that matter, to propose its repeal — is not only to rather miss the point, but to expose the root flaw in the way that the skeptics view the whole question of firearms in the United States." ...
