"'Seeking tighter controls over firearm purchases, the Obama administration is pushing to ban Social Security beneficiaries from owning guns if they lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs, a move that could affect millions whose monthly disability payments are handled by others,' The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday. 'There is no simple way to identify that group, but a strategy used by the Department of Veterans Affairs since the creation of the background check system is reporting anyone who has been declared incompetent to manage pension or disability payments and assigned a fiduciary.'" ...

"The term 'sporting purpose' is imbedded throughout U.S. gun control laws, and its use is a violation of the Second Amendment."

"That has been my position for decades. My brother Chris raised the issue in a speech before the Gun Rights Policy Conference some three years ago, and our dad Neal Knox was making an issue of the language in the 1980s."

"The 'sporting purpose' language has been a plank in federal gun laws dating back at least to the National Firearms Act of 1934. The 1968 Gun Control Act, down to its current incarnation, institutes broad restrictions and prohibitions on a variety of firearms and ammunition, then exempt items that are deemed to be 'particularly suitable for sporting purposes,' ..." ...

What is the risk that reports that dazzle with brilliance disguise attempts to baffle with bull—-? Pretty high, when they come from gun control advocates . . ." ...

"Bryan Scott Wolfinger had a completely reasonable plan. But he forgot to consider the unintended consequences - which turned out to be pretty dramatic."

"The 25-year-old 82nd Airborne infantryman wanted some professional photos of himself in combat gear. That included an assault-type rifle and a ballistic panel. A good plan for a soldier who sees his next career as a model and film actor."

"But wearing that gear and carrying that rifle into Cross Creek Mall - the location of the photo studio - created an uproar among shoppers and shopkeepers. No surprise, given our steady diet of reports on mass shootings in public venues."

"It didn't matter that the firing pin of Wolfinger's rifle was removed and it was unloaded. ..." ...

... "At issue is the claim, as published in today’s on-line editorial, that, 'With some exceptions, the proposed law would require every person who buys a gun from an unlicensed, private seller — they account for about 40 percent of all gun sales and typically are found at gun shows and online — to undergo a computerized FBI criminal background check. In many cases, it can be done very quickly.' Nice try, but no cigar, because this estimate was discredited more than two years ago by the Washington Post fact checker, and that newspaper has never been friendly toward the Second Amendment." ...

"The atmosphere is hectic. People, hundreds if not thousands of them, are milling around the giant expo center, a place that could more accurately be described as a humongous warehouse differently preoccupied. They are of every stripe and origin, pale and swarthy, male and female, old and young, local and foreign. They navigate around the tables like river trout navigating rocks. I am just one of them on this lazy, wintry Sunday afternoon . . ."

... "My words are for the folks who think they will feel empowered by walking around town with a semi-automatic pistol that can accommodate 20 rounds ... They are designed to do one thing — remove a threat quickly and efficiently. In other words, to kill."

"I do not feel empowered, to be honest. I feel sick in the pit of my stomach as I walk out the door with my weapon ... I know that people of all ages will see I’m carrying, and some people will be wondering if I’m nuts or not. If I have to use my weapon, I may be arrested. I may shoot an innocent person by mistake. If I have to use it, I could be sued ... My life as it has been will never be the same, but it also would not be the same if the actor seriously harms me." ...

"I used to work for a major gun company back at the turn of the century. My job as a regional sales manager consisted of driving around a three-state area, going to gun shops. (It sucked, but someone had to do it.) I had taken over the North Carolina,Virginia and Tennessee territory and moved to central North Carolina from Florida. I was in western North Carolina and had a meeting scheduled at a shop first thing in the morning. Best thing to do when you have a early meeting is to bring doughnuts . . ." ...

"Once again, a tragic shooting — this time at the two military locations in Chattanooga, Tennessee — has gripped the nation."

"And here at Gun Owners of America, our thoughts and prayers are for the families of the victims."

"Sadly, the Brady Campaign announced — just hours after the shooting — that this massacre requires additional gun control. They went so far as to say that, 'We owe it ['it' being more gun control] to the men and women at our military installations.'”

"Really? Is that what our servicemen are clamoring for? Hardly. What a disgrace to the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting our country." ...

"The Second Amendment Foundation today responded to published reports that the Obama administration is pushing to prevent citizens collecting Social Security benefits from owning guns if they have problems managing their own affairs as proof the president wants to strip as many people as possible of their Second Amendment rights while he remains in office."

"'This could possibly disqualify millions of people from owning firearms and might prevent many others from seeking help,' said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, himself a U.S. Army veteran. 'It’s unconscionable that someone who might have problems balancing a checkbook ... would suddenly find himself or herself stripped of their right to keep and bear arms.'" ...

"Attorney General Alan Wilson’s opinion came in response to the temporary measure, passed July 9 by council, banning weapons in a 250-foot exclusion zone around the capitol. Members said they were heeding the advice of law enforcement officials, who warned that armed and possibly dangerous people were headed to Columbia July 10 for the removal of the Confederate flag from the State House." ...

"A few days before Election Day in 1990, the National Rifle Association sent a letter to its 12,000 members in Vermont, with an urgent message about the race for the state’s single House seat."

"Vote for the socialist, the gun rights group said. It’s important."

"'Bernie Sanders is a more honorable choice for Vermont sportsmen than ­Peter Smith,' wrote Wayne LaPierre, who was — and still is — a top official at the national NRA, backing Sanders over the Republican incumbent."

"That was odd. Sanders was the ex-hippie ex-mayor of Burlington, running as an independent because the Democrats weren’t far enough left. He had never even owned a gun."

"But that year, he was the enemy of the NRA’s enemy."

"Smith had changed his mind about a ban on ­assault weapons. ..." ...

"Officer George Bermudez was fired from the Georgetown police department after it was discovered that he intentionally and maliciously tampered with a fellow officer’s weapon. The situation began on February 2nd when Bermudez was asked to pick up another officer’s weapon from the Williamson County Firearms Range where they were practicing."

"The rifle was left behind by Officer David Lanier, but instead of picking the weapon up and doing him a favor, Bermudez took the rifle to the Guns Plus gun shop in Georgetown and requested that the clerk make very specific and dangerous modifications to the gun. Bermudez had asked the clerk to adjust the sights and the firing pin so they would not work properly." ...

"A 130-year-old rifle found in the Nevada desert last year is fully loaded with mystery—and some of the questions surrounding it might never be answered."

"The Winchester 1873 rifle was discovered in the Great Basin National Park leaning against a juniper tree in November. But the strange discovery has triggered more questions than answers." ...

"... There was never a recorded fire in the region, which would help them date the gun's presence at the tree ... Archaeologists scoured the nearby soil for related clues but found nothing—especially not a body."

"The Winchester rifle is currently being preserved and is on display at the Cody Firearms Museum, where it sits among 7,000 other guns. Hlebinsky said the Winchester is the star of the show." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Without freedom there will be no firearms among the people; without firearms among the people there will not long be freedom. Certainly there are examples of countries where the people remain relatively free after the people have been disarmed, but there are no examples of a totalitarian state being created or existing where the people have personal arms. — Neal Knox
