… “That neither of these imbecilic infringements would have made a bit of difference in the incident for which the commission was named is something conveniently left unmentioned. That they would add unjustified expense, and not just to the gun community, but in trying to administer such intrusive bureaucratic monstrosities, is evidently not anticipated. That hardened criminals will ignore them, and so will any gun owner who cares about freedom enough to take their chances with principled civil disobedience, goes unaddressed.”

“In a peculiar combination of a ‘Catch-22’ contradiction along with Soviet-style psychiatric controls, expect the desire to own guns to be proof of a mental disability. …” …

“He takes them in stride, the nasty emails that come in three or four times a week.”

“They’re not that many, but they display the raw emotion that Alan Gottlieb generates with his gun rights message. A recent email begins, simply, ‘You are an idiot.’”

“It concludes with an emphatic, ‘I hope someone shoots you in the face with an AK-15 which you love so much. Poetic Justice, you (expletive)!’ (The writer likely meant an AR-15, a type of assault rifle used in some mass shootings.)”

“Gottlieb, 66, is the bookish, balding guy with the bow tie and nerdy eyeglasses who founded the Second Amendment Foundation in Bellevue, Wash.” …

“I’ve said it before and I’ve said it again, if you want to know how the public feels about something, do it in the way a marketer would do it, not in the same way a politician would.”

“Polls work great for talking points on the campaign trail. However, if we really want to know what America thinks about a topic, all we have to do is look at the internet data.”

“Last week we ran an article in which we showed that Google searches for AR-15′s as well as pro-gun groups far outweighed searches for gun control groups.”

“This week we wanted to look at the hard traffic. …” …

Getting ‘personal’ about freedom, and politics in gun rights debate

“Today’s thoughtful Seattle Times column by Danny Westneat on the subject of freedom may touch a nerve with Washington gun rights activists because noticeable by its absence was any mention of what Initiative 594 — the 18-page gun control measure — will mean to the personal freedom of more than 1.5 million (by some estimates) Evergreen State gun owners.”

“I-594 is backed by the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility, a Seattle-based group largely funded by wealthy urban elitists. Their fund-raising appeals have tried to convince people they are the financial underdogs, when in reality WAGR has raised and spent twice the amount of gun rights advocates backing an alternative measure, Initiative 591.” …

“The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, one of the older anti-gun groups in the country, is apparently taking their cues from Everytown for Gun Safety … and is now just resorting to making up statistics.”

“The group claimed that nine children die in the USA everyday due to gunshot wounds (both accidental and intentional). The group even made a big display of the stat recently placing 9 pairs of toddler shoes in a row to drum up the appropriate level of emotion.”

“However, there is one small problem with that number – it’s completely false. According to PolitiFact (a political fact checking website), that number is actually below 8. The other issue, the Brady campaign considers anyone aged 0-19 to be a ‘child’ ...” …

“... [T]he book's real strength is Waldman's ability to tie the narrative of recent gun jurisprudence to the general rightward drift of American politics and American law. I have been waiting for someone to explain how judges like Scalia defend the notion of Second Amendment ‘originalism’ in order to promote a conservative, current-day agenda and Waldman nails this one to the wall. Going back to the 1980s, he charts the confluence of conservative energies represented by politicized evangelicals, right-wing think tanks and specific-interest groups like the NRA, all combining to support a judicial agenda that seeks to roil back or dilute progressive programs and reforms.” …

“A June 21 letter writer, (‘Clinton wants to rein in guns, but is protected by firearms’) stated that our Founding Fathers would take umbrage with such language from Hillary Clinton.”

“I would like to think that our Founding Fathers would have the guts that our legislators in Washington don’t have now, to enact some restrictions on guns to stop the killing of children that is so commonplace today.” …
-------

Submitter’s Note: According to the CDC, between 2002 and 2011 there were 2,137 children “killed by guns” in homicides, accidents and suicides. In that same time period 7,666 (three-and-a-half times as many!) children were murdered with something other than a firearm. Where should we be directing our efforts?

… “Metcalf analyzed his downfall this morning with Atlantic Media editorial director Ronald Brownstein before a standing-room-only crowd in Aspen. The nidus was a back-page opinion column that carried the incendiary headline, ‘Let's Talk Limits.’ It was a headline that, like so many headlines, was not written by the author, and that many vocal detractors did not read past.”

“In the column, Metcalf wrote that he did not believe it was an infringement of the Second Amendment to require some training before a person can have a concealed carry. He added that states can have a universal background check law without him feeling infringed upon.”

“That did not go over well.” …

… “The Three Percent today are gun owners who will not disarm, will not compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun control act. Three Percenters say quite explicitly that we will not obey any further circumscription of our traditional liberties and will defend ourselves if attacked. We intend to maintain our God-given natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, we are committed to the restoration of the Founders' Republic, and are willing to fight, die and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, to kill in the defense of ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold against enemies foreign and domestic.” …

“Whether or not you like this book will depend on where you stand on gun issues. Whether you appreciate its arguments will depend on how discerning you are as a reader.”

“Michael Waldman’s dissection of the history of the Second Amendment – a ‘biography’ only in the sense that we have, as he believes, a ‘living Constitution’ – is a welcome addition to the ongoing debate over gun rights and gun control in America but it’s not impartial. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; this is, after all, a debate, and there is no shortage of publications on either side of that divide, but it’s something to keep in mind. If you favor gun control, you’ll like this book; if you favor gun rights, you probably won’t.” …

Senate candidate Andy Martin will hold a Concord, NH news conference today, Tuesday, June 17th at the main entrance to the State Capitol before appearing before the Gun Owners of New Hampshire to present his Second Amendment credentials. ‘I am the only Second Amendment activist,’ Andy says. ‘The other candidates are either paper maché supporters of the Second Amendment (Brown) or else they are resting on their laurels from long ago (Smith and Rubens). New Hampshire needs a strong voice in Washington, not one living in decades gone by.’ Andy recently helped win a major Second Amendment federal court victory.’” …

“The legislation, signed by Gov. Nathan Deal in April, broadens the state’s gun carry laws, but how that impacts the community remains to be seen.”

“’I’m sure that there is going to be a lot of television media, they’ll go around to places where there are signs posted. They may make it more of an issue than it really is, but I think that if there wasn’t a lot of fanfare with it, you would not be able to tell any difference from today and Tuesday,’ said Rep. Paul Battles (R-Cartersville) on Saturday. …” …

“Bars, houses of worship, and other public establishments are wrestling with what to do about a new law in Georgia that starting on Tuesday dramatically will expand gun-permit holders' right to carry weapons where people congregate.”
“The law allows licensed gun owners to bring weapons to bars and houses of worship, unless forbidden by proprietors. ...”
“Several other states allow guns in bars or churches, but Georgia's ‘Safe Carry Protection Act,’ which passed the state legislature overwhelmingly earlier this year, is unusual in that it expanded gun rights in multiple places with one omnibus law.” …

Submitter’s Note: According to LCAV 29 states allow guns in bars and 38 allow them in churches. That’s one or two more than “several”.

"Historians looking back at this period in America’s development will consider it to be profoundly odd that at the exact moment when violent crime hit a 50-year low, the nation’s police departments began to gear up as if the country were expecting invasion — and, on occasion, to behave as if one were underway. ..." ...
