"The Following is an up to the minute report from Julianne Versnel, Director of Operations for the Second Amendment Foundation who is representing SAF as an NGO delegate at the United Nations ATT meeting."

"The Arms Trade Treaty Prep Committee began on July 12, 2010 and will conclude on July 23, 2010. Ambassador Roberto Garcia Moritan of Argentina is the Chair. On Friday, July 19, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) representatives were told that the majority of the meetings would be closed to them. The critical discussions on the scope of the treaty will have no input from any non-governmental entity. Scope is critical in the Arms Trade Treaty process. ..." ...

... "In America Fights Back: Armed Self-Defense in a Violent Age, we mixed data and statistics with accounts of actual self-defense incidents to tell a story that is almost uniquely American. Elsewhere around the world, armed self-defense is either unheard of or can get you tossed in prison. The other day in Ireland, new legislation was passed that turns this scenario around, and Irish police officials appear to be lauding the change."

No Guns for You — You've Slammed Doors Very Hard

"In a few states — including New Jersey — people need a license to even get a firearm to keep at home, and the police may deny such a license if they think the person poses a danger to others. This isn’t limited to getting concealed carry licenses; it applies to having a gun in the first place. And it isn't limited to people who have been convicted of a felony or a violent misdemeanor, or even to people who have been found by a preponderance of the evidence to have committed or threatened violent acts (that's the standard usually used for domestic restraining orders)."

"As an American, I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to many, many people who have risked and given their lives to defend our liberty. But as I reflect on the recent Supreme Court decision in McDonald v. City of Chicago, I thought I should take a moment to mention four Americans who have made a relatively uncelebrated contribution to the freedom I cherish and enjoy. I owe a special debt to four black men, and one gun." ...

"If firearms were indeed as inherently dangerous as gun control advocates suggest, there should be millions of crimes, murders, suicides, and accidents involving firearms each year, and those numbers should be escalating since the total number of firearms and firearms owners have risen substantially over the past few years."

"In reality, numbers of firearms related crime and accidents have steadily dropped while gun sales have gone through the roof and more states have liberalized laws dealing with the carry of arms in public. Independent, peer reviewed studies show that firearms are used 5 times more often to stop crime than to commit crime ..." ...

Unlike many of my media colleagues, the Second is my fave over the First. After all, bad people with guns can shut up good people with keyboards pretty darn quick." ...

"But that 'major victory' came on a wispy-thin 5-4 vote, and McDonald’s several opinions, concurrences and dissents are some of the most divergent and vitriolic I've ever read."

"Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., and Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., made their intentions known Wednesday, the day after the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-6 to send her name to the full Senate for consideration."

"The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to send the nomination of Elena Kagan to the full Senate floor today."

"The 13-6 vote was not a surprise. Democrats outnumber Republicans 12-7 on the committee, and their ranks include the anti-gun extreme wing of their party, such as Charles Schumer, Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin."

"Six Republicans opposed Kagan, with only turncoat Lindsey Graham of South Carolina voting to confirm the anti-gunner."

"As this important battle moves to the Senate floor, it is important to keep the heat on all Senators — especially Democrats coming from rural states who claim to support the Second Amendment."

"If a handful of these Senators vote NO on Kagan, her confirmation could be defeated." ...

... "Whether one agrees with its decisions or not — and when it comes to this issue I don’t — the Supreme Court has now settled the questions surrounding the Second Amendment, ruling that it is an individual right to bear arms. Although it has long been a whipping-horse for the Right, the ACLU has a long tradition of defending conservative causes because their fealty to the Constitution is principled rather than strategic. So, naturally, it’s increasingly defending gun owners’ Constitutional rights now that the issue is settled law." ...

"America is known for its trendsetting."

"It's the land that brought the world McDonald's, Facebook and Lady Gaga. When Americans buy into something, everyone takes notice."

"But some hot items are more dangerous than others. A recent article in Marie Claire’s UK edition identified one questionable craze: 'Across America, firearms are fast becoming a must-have accessory.'"

"Trend alert?"

"It's long been the stereotype that Brits view America as a gun-toting, violent and generally unrefined nation. The caricature could actually be closer to the truth than we think."

"A shocking act of violence here recently threw the issue of gun control in Britain versus America into sharp relief." ...

"Deposed anti-gun Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich surprised most court-watchers today. When the government rested its case, Blago's attorneys rested also, without presenting any active defense. Now, my day job involves a lot more time in court than that of most folks, and in a few decades of that, this particular gambit has always struck me as something like a jump-spinning back kick in a karate tournament. It will result in either a spectacular knockout, or the person who tried it falling on their butt."

"When the Supreme Court made its latest ruling in favor of the Second Amendment recently, it was widely thought that it would trigger lawsuits against existing laws that restrict firearms ownership."

"New York was a logical target. Pistol permits in New York are state licenses but are administered at the county level, by judges. If a county judge doesn't want to issue unrestricted (concealed carry) permits, he or she simply refuses. Others may limit the permits only to those citizens who show a need or 'good cause.'"

"Well, the Supreme Court's latest ruling made that seemingly illegal and we're going to find out if it is. The Second Amendment Foundation last week filed a federal lawsuit against New York's Westchester County ..." ...

And just from talking to peers from other parts of the country, I came away with much different information than what you might be gleaning from the typical big-media sources."

"For instance, the Senate race in Nevada, with Democrat Sen. Harry Reid challenged by outspoken conservative Sharron Angle, might not be as clear-cut a choice as you'd think. As one editor from Nevada put it, 'A lot of people, including Democrats, don't really like Harry Reid, and some of Angle's comments have been blown out of proportion.

"'Kelly Ayotte demonstrated tough, conservative leadership during her time as attorney general,' he said. '... She's ... actually cleared a homeowner for defending his home, and she was praised by the NRA when she became the only AG in the Northeast to call on Eric Holder to not reinstate the ban on semi-automatic firearms.

The Catholic Church was the first denomination to say they weren't interested." ...

"Nevertheless, it's good to get this issue out there as much as possible because the battle between cops and photographers is not going to slow down anytime soon." ...

"When San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Murphy responded to a 'shots fired' call in April 2008, he decided en route that he was going to make an arrest."

"He did far more than that. Murphy and other deputies made an unwarranted entry into a home, and then into a locked gun safe. Murphy's uncensored, darkly disturbing observations and behavior following his Code-3 arrival at the rural home of longtime SLO County resident Matt Hart were picked up by Murphy's and other deputies’ own recorders. Those recordings provide a rare, frighteningly revealing, behind-the-scenes perspective of how one local law enforcement agency views the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and other laws its personnel are sworn to uphold." ...

 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
