"'Britain is a nation united in shock and in grief,' British Prime Minister David Cameron writes at telegraph.co.uk. 'As the names and identities of the victims in Tunisia emerge – and the horror of what they faced becomes clear – those feelings grow. Everyone is asking the same thing: how can a day at the beach for families and friends have turned into a scene of such horror?' Because someone with a gun was able to shoot 30 defenseless British tourists (amongst others) without any immediate armed intervention? That’s not quite how David puts it . . ." ...

"'Living out in the country, law enforcement is over 20 minutes away, and the only things you have to protect you are your dog and your gun,' a young woman says in the video produced by the conservative blog Counter Cultured. 'And I’m not willing to give up either to a man protected by Secret Service men.'"

"'As a returning vet, I see how it is overseas and stuff going on, and I think it’s important to safeguard our freedoms back here at home,' a young man said in the video." ...

"'Rather than being our American birthright, gun ownership should be a privilege earned after thorough examination and training, like driving a car,' wrote freelance writer, hunter and 'community organizer' David Fellerath in an Op-Ed published yesterday by the Washington Post."

"What do you say? ..." ...

Submitter's Note: I say absolutely let's treat guns like cars; let's have "Carrier's Ed" in high school, give permits to the 90% of 16 year-olds who pass the written and practical tests ... I have lots of ideas on the subject.

"Do I profit from death and fear?

I teach some basic classes on self defense, and concealed carry. I am not Haley or Costa, or Vickers, I’m kinda like Range Time but I actually served in the military for more than a weekend. I’m just a dude who teaches people things like basic gun handling, a concealed carry glass, and a basic defensive handgun course.

Second Amendment is not about hunting

"The nation’s demagogues and constitutionally ignorant are using the Charleston, S.C., AME church shooting to attack the Second Amendment’s 'right of the people to keep and bear arms.'"

"A couple of years ago, President Barack Obama said, 'I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations.' That’s a vision shared by many Americans, namely that the Constitution’s framers gave us the Second Amendment to protect our rights to go deer and duck hunting, do a bit of skeet shooting and protect ourselves against criminals. That this vision is so widely held reflects the failure of gun rights advocates, such as the NRA and Gun Owners of America, to educate the American people. ..." ...
 

A libertarian case for gun control

"'Isn’t that an oxymoron?' someone quipped the other day, when I described myself as a sensible libertarian."

"The easiest response was, of course, simply to clarify that I’m not an anarchist. But could this exchange shed light on America’s gun problem? When firearms cause the death of more than 30,000 Americans a year, opposition to restricting access to them can seem incomprehensibly negligent. Are we happy to condemn the 47 per cent of Americans who don’t want increased gun control as gung-ho thugs?" ...

"When I was a kid, my Dad took me out hunting and target shooting. He loved it. Me, not so much. It just wasn’t my thing. I tried, but I just wasn’t interested. I mean, I didn’t dislike guns and I wasn’t scared of them. I just wasn’t all that interested. When he would buy a new pistol, he would show it to me and I could tell he loved these things. Of course I showed interest and they were actually kinda’ cool, but I was more interested in my guitar so I never really jumped on board with the whole 'gun thing' . . ." ...

"When a new pro-gun group surfaces, unfortunately, I’ve become somewhat suspicious."

"I’ve seen a few crop up over the years that were focused on fundraising but little else."

"I recently received an email from 2AO — the 'Second Amendment Organization' — that announced they’d kicked off a fundraising campaign for the victims of the Charleston church shooting."

"Problem is, I’d never heard of the 2AO, nor had any of my contacts at several longstanding pro-gun organizations. Several readers had questions about the group, too."

"I called Tim Young, who was listed as 2AO’s media contact. He never called back. His phone number is associated with both the National Press Club and a marketing group. Strange, that." ...

Whatever the shotgun, ATI (Advanced Technology International) probably makes a full range of aftermarket parts to improve capacity, utility, adaptability, and ergonomics…or to otherwise gussy it up.

"New Yorker writer Andy Borowitz is tired. He’s too tired to fact-check studies that 'prove' that gun ownership is a bad, bad thing for both individuals and society at large. Too tired to read TTAG’s analysis of the faulty methodology required to produce these foregone conclusion. And he’s tired of people who dare question this 'settled science' on gun control. So he wrote this semi-moronic – sorry semi-ironic 'news satire' instead . . ." ...

"'I remember the hours and days after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting,” Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy opines at newstimes.com (excerpted from recent Senate testimony). “I remember feeling like I needed to be restrained about talking about the obvious policy issues that tumbled out of the facts surrounding that tragedy.” Huh? You’d kinda expect a rabid anti-gunner like Senator Murphy to stick to the playbook. Wave the bloody shirt. Talk about your feelings. Call for gun control. In this op ed, Murphy skips the whole touchy feely thing. Right there we get insight into the man’s mentality . . ." ...

"An act of domestic terror. Nine people gunned down in a church. When is enough enough? A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within."

"Yet another sad and tragic day in America. The country is in mourning."

"We are also angry these mass murders continue, with little or no constructive response to prevent them going forward."

"With a burst of gunfire in Charleston, S.C., the nation’s innocence is once again shattered and nine people lie in their own blood dead, in their place of worship. Yet another twisted young man snuffed out innocent lives with a handgun." ...

Christie has been in elected office for five-and-a-half-years now, during which time the good denizens of New Jersey have suffered under what are without a shadow of a doubt the worst gun laws in the country. Are we really supposed to entertain with a straight face that he has only just come to the conclusion that something needs to be done?"

"The governor also signaled support for loosening New Jersey's strict gun control laws."

"Reacting to the June 3 death of 39-year-old Berlin Township woman Carol Bowne, Christie on Monday announced that acting state Attorney General John Hoffman will file a new regulation to require applications for gun permits for victims of domestic violence, other violent crimes ... be processed 'quickly and without delay.'"

"As we take stock of the most momentous U.S. Supreme Court decisions released at the end of its term and start looking ahead to the next term, one notable absence next year will be an opinion on a major gun-rights case."

"In June, the court denied a petition to hear Jackson v. City and County of San Francisco, which challenged a local ordinance requiring that handguns in one’s own home must be locked away or disabled with a device like a trigger lock, or else carried directly on one’s person as he moves about the house."

"Incredibly, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals conceded that the ordinance 'burdens the core of the Second Amendment right,' but simultaneously concluded that it was 'not a substantial burden' ..." ...

"A federal appeals court has expedited the case of a trio of men who filed suit against the District of Columbia in February after being denied handgun carry licenses, and ruled that D.C. can keep enforcing a key provision of its concealed carry licensing system in the meantime."

"Backed by the Second Amendment Foundation ... the men challenged the discretionary nature of the D.C.’s gun licensing system, which requires gun owners demonstrate a 'good' or 'proper' reason to obtain a concealed carry permit."

"The lawsuit and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit’s Monday ruling to allow it to proceed is one of many attempts by SAF to expand access to guns via the courts. ..." ...

'Watch out,' they warned. 'Everyone in Wyoming has a gun.' My real estate agent did. The single mom of two packs a GLOCK 9mm. I’m not sure why that surprised me. It shouldn’t have. Why wouldn’t a real estate agent carry a gun? What’s not to love about a 9mm handgun? That said, when I first brought-up the subject of guns to my pistol-packing real estate agent . . ." ...
