Submitter's note: Today's Gun Rights Examiner commentary adds another dimension to that "national conversation on guns" the antis say they want to have. Why not see if they're serious? Send them this link, then watch them shuffle, evade, change the subject, attack, ridicule and do everything but directly answer the following question: Under what circumstances would you find it morally justifiable to shoot a police officer?

"Remember the stunt the NJ State Assembly pulled when the leadership realized they didnít have enough votes to pass their gun control measure? A coalition of gun groups today accused the Assembly of vote-rigging and said ten other gun control measures, some of which have already been approved by the legislature, are invalid due to their improper procedure. Of course a spokesman for the Assembly Democrats said they did nothing wrong. 'Nothing improper happenedÖ There are no specific rules for committee votes (and there was) no problem at all with any procedureÖ the rule cited by the gun advocates pertains to floor roll call votes and not committee votes.' Pop some popcorn. This should be a fun one to watch . . ." ...

"'It defies logic that in a country like the United States, a firearm can be purchased with no record of the transaction, and no review of whether the purchaser is legally prohibited from possessing a firearm.' Thatís how Benjamin Hayes starts his 6 biggest lies about background checks article. And things donít improve much from there. Hayesís position is that every firearm transaction should have a record, period. And in furtherance of that goal, he penned an article based on flawed logic and a fundamental misunderstandings of the facts to try and browbeat people into accepting the 'universal background check' proposal thatís currently on the table. Letís take a second to appreciate exactly how little salon.com actually knows about gun laws in the US . . ." ...

"Iím probably one of your most left-leaning readers. The whole 'slave state' stuff is a turn off. Anyway, Iíve been reading for around a year, and decided that once AR parts were reasonably priced again, Iíd get my first firearmĖa stripped lower, destined for an 18″ SPR. That was back in April. Iíve since realized that the design and use of firearms, particularly the AR pattern, is an incredibly cerebral exercise. It flies in the face of the uneducated and fear-stricken stereotypes. I personally donít have that problem, as a well-educated former Californian living in Alabama. But I understand thatís not the case for most gun owners.

Oh sure, few want to ban them (yet), but they come up all the time in arguments for gun control. Iíll often hear something along these lines, 'Well when the framers came up with the Second Amendment, they only had black powder muskets, they couldnít hit anything with those, thatís why they only fired when they saw the whites of their eyes. The framers never could have imagined a gun that could hit anything past five yards, or be reloaded quickly; the second amendment is out of date and needs to be repealed!' . . ." ...
