Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence presumes to tell people how to worship
Submitted by: Bruce Krafft

"Last night, the Northwest Baptist Church, in Toledo, OH, held a rally celebrating the right to keep and bear arms, and spreading the message that the exercise of that right is in no way incompatible with Christian values." ...

"As one might have guessed, there were some with whom this rally did not sit well. The [OCAGV] was particularly apoplectic." ...

"What struck me about that press release was not the over-the-top emotionalism of the rhetoric ... No, what floored me was the arrogance inherent to telling people that they're worshipping 'wrongly,' and that their church service is 'immoral.'"

"It seems that along with the right to keep and bear arms, even freedom of religion offends OCAGV."

... "Those of us who currently proclaim ourselves to be Three Percenters make no claim that we actually represent three percent of the population ... but we stand for the Second Amendment, and our support goes far beyond mere words. Three Percenters today are American gun owners who have taken a stand. We WILL NOT disarm. We WILL NOT obey further anti-gun legislation ... We WILL NOT stand for further circumscription of our God-given rights and we WILL defend ourselves if we are attacked. Since our guns are the most effective means of defending ourselves, we WILL NOT surrender them. We are committed to restoring the Republic as envisioned by the Founders and are wiling to fight and to die in defense of ourselves and the Constitution." ...
 

Careless slobs jeopardize recreational shooting for everyone

"The lowlands corridor along Interstate 90 some 38 miles east of Seattle which runs through the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest is being closed to recreational shooting starting this weekend and continuing for at least 12 months, while the Forest Service determines whether the closure should become permanent."

"The problem: Slob shooters. The bane of all responsible gun owners, these people are responsible for other such closures on public lands all over the map. For years, they have brought their garbage onto public property, shot it to pieces, and left it as an eyesore. On rare occasions, they accidentally shoot one another while ricocheting bullets off of boulders against which they have propped a target." ...
 

Favoring gun rights isn't subversion

"Last night on the NRA News program 'Cam & Company,' we were talking about the tactic of the anti-gun crowd to apply negative labels to gun owners. They're losing the fight in the legislature and in the courts, and public opinion has turned against them as well. The only trick these ponies have left is to try to change that public sentiment with insults, stereotypes, and lies."

"So now, in addition to saying guns are bad, they say gun owners are bad people; paranoid, redneck, cowboy wanna-be... those are all terms that have been used regularly in recent years. They are now being supplemented with stronger terms, like terrorist and subversive." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Contrary to the claims of the anti-gun crowd, being a gun owner who believes in protecting the rights guaranteed by the Constitution does not make you a terrorist subversive.
 

Will N.J. 'one gun a month' bill stop the violence?

... "So when this latest assault on the people who are not responsible for the violence doesn't work, the 'solution' will be to drag even more people who aren't guilty into the net. Other states, where peaceable armed citizens seem to be able to behave themselves, will be blamed, and the demand will be made to make 'one gun a month' the law of the land."

"You know, part of that 'what works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne' bit of misdirection that always seems to result in a 'one size fits all' mandate..."

"Previously, we examined how Brady's favorite states ... correlates with lower firearms ownership rates, higher violent crime rates, and bloated, inefficient government."

"However, a reader took exception to the use of the statistical analysis and challenged me to prove that the findings had 'significance,' meaning that the trends really had some relationship to the Brady report card scores."

"That's a fair question, though the person's use of derogation was immature, and they haven’t accepted the offer to examine my data. This is a common happenstance with anti-rights proponents: Like angry children, they feel that the very fact that they stuck their tongue out in anger is sufficient proof they are right." ...

"It's a fundamental question, and it has a fundamental answer: You need a backup plan."

"There are many things that can happen separating you from your main cache and retreat."

"Theft and fire are two that come to mind and the threat of organized gangs of raiders scouring the countryside looking for sources of resupply are always a threat to the survivor." ...

... "The second mistake Mr Henigan makes is in the Acknowledgments where the author gives the background of the book: a summary of experiences in his headquarters company The Brady Center and its history of persuading lawmakers, policymakers, judges and the people that there should be gun regulation and such a purpose of a non-profit organization. ... Gun control organizations do not operate in the public interest this way when they work so hard to take down a civil right and deny it."

"These alone would make the case against non-profits and activists who are so against a piece of iron with wood trim instead of being against the criminals who will grab anything – prohibited them or not – in order to commit crime." ...

"Should suspected terrorists be blocked from buying guns before they commit a violent crime? The gun lobby apparently doesn't think so."

"The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently made the astounding discovery that, in the five years ending in February, 2009, 865 individuals on the government's terrorist watch list were able to buy guns at licensed gun dealers. Of course, if 865 people on the watch list had been permitted to board airplanes during that period, heads would roll. It is now taken for granted that suspected terrorists should not be allowed on airplanes. If we think someone is sufficiently dangerous to bar him from getting on a plane, why should we let him buy a gun?" ...

"Here are the facts: ... The FBI's Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB), the official name for its terrorist watch list, has no legal bearing on whether or not guns can be purchased by people on its rolls."

"Here comes the outrage from the knee-jerk side: Are you kidding me? We ... let people we're pretty sure want to use those guns to kill innocent American civilians plunk down some cash and receive an instrument whose primary function is to end lives ..." ...

"Two gun bills at the Legislature would shoot holes in private-property rights."

"They both look headed to Gov. Jan Brewer's desk."

"She should veto them."

"House Bill 2474 (also moving as Senate Bill 1168) would force property owners and businesses to allow guns in locked private vehicles in their parking lots. ..." ...

"Meanwhile, any establishment that is licensed to serve alcohol would have to allow customers with permits to carry concealed weapons, unless it posted a notice otherwise. This measure, Senate Bill 1113, turns common sense on its head. The presumption shouldn't be that guns and liquor are a good mix - even with a provision that prohibits anyone with a concealed weapon from drinking."

"Gun carriers would not be allowed to drink ..."

"Restaurant owners who do not want guns on the premises must post a sign."

"Two new pieces of legislation related to guns are making their way through Sacramento — and making gun store owners in the Mid-Valley frustrated at what they call political myopia." ...

"AB 962 would compel those who sell ammunition to be licensed the same as gun dealers, and mandate a face-to-face transaction when someone buys ammunition." ...

"... SB 697, would mandate safety measures be included in every gun sold in California. That technology would be used to tell how many unfired cartridges remain in a gun, to avoid accidental shootings when thought to be empty."

"Guns would also have to have biometric technology to prevent them from being fired if someone other than the registered owner tried to do so." ...
