"As a Second Amendment Foundation supporter, I would like to tell you about a great opportunity."

"This conference is a great opportunity for those who care about their 2nd Amendment Rights to come together and learn from each other." ...
 

Today, on The War on Guns: Notes from the Resistance Radio

... "Spread the word on this, OK? Nobody else is doing a daily exclusive gun rights broadcast in a major market during morning drive time, and if this works, it could not only create an opportunity to spread to other markets, but also open doors for efforts by others. We complain our voice is not heard in the media--here we've got a foot in the door at an NBC affiliate station to promote a full-blown no compromise message. Just a few short months ago I certainly would never have predicted I'd see that happen--or that I'd be a part of it."

Gay Conservative Group Leader: "Second Amendment Rights Are Gay Rights"
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"GOProud co-​founder Jimmy LaSalvia told MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, 'Second Amendment rights are gay rights,' because, as he has been falsely touting all week, hate crime laws don’t work."

"LaSalvia stupidly says of hate crimes, 'there’s clearly not been an end to them since we passed the federal hate crimes laws.'"

"And there's clearly not been an end to murder since we passed murder laws."
-------

Submitter's Note: But the primary purpose of murder laws is to punish murderers (although they do have a prophylactic effect) whereas the "hate crime" laws were in fact touted as being primarily preventative (sort of like all those mala prohibita gun laws).
 

‘The cop heard round the world’ – Ohio incident puts law in crosshairs

"Not only is a Canton, Ohio police officer under increasing fire this morning for his profanity-laden outburst at an armed citizen that now has gun rights activists from Toledo to Tacoma furious, the Buckeye State law that requires citizens to notify cops if they are armed is also being partly blamed for what happened during a video encounter that has streaked around the world over the past 24 hours."

"... This 17-minute video has set public relations back about 50 years between Canton police and the firearms community." ...

"The question among angry gun rights activists today: How many more like Harless are still out there, not yet captured on video?"

"We've all wondered what our first armed traffic stop is going to turn into. For me I was driving a 1996 Ford explorer with 4" tall white letters that read: OHIOCCW.ORG across the back of my hatch."

"The officer stepped out of his vehicle and approached my car in a rather large arc so that when he could see into my doorway he was easily twenty feet away from my car."

"We were each other’s first armed traffic stop and as I realized what was taking place I chuckled and said 'So, Obviously you know, Right?'"

"That didn’t happen to a man in Canton, Ohio who had his license for just 30 days on June 8th of this summer. What happened is a problem we’ve heard all too often." ...

"Tim Pawlenty’s stepping up his appeal to gun owners in Iowa."

"On Saturday, the former Minnesota governor will bring his RV tour to Searsboro to the Iowa Firearms Coalition Second Amendment Rally, making him the only 2012 contender to accept an invitation to an event that’s expected to draw about 1,300 people." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: And all the credential burnishing in the world will not change the fact that in 2008 Gov. Pawlenty promised the leadership of MN's Gun Owners' Civil Rights Alliance that he would order the state Department of Public Safety to quit making stuff up and to actually obey the state's Permit to Carry law regarding the recognition of other states' permits. He never kept that promise.
 

MD: An Open Letter to a Deluded Mayoral Candidate

... "The problem of violent crime in Baltimore will obviously need to be addressed by any serious candidate for mayor."

"However, in response to this somber reality, you have now come out with one of the most idiotic 'gun control' schemes just about anyone, anywhere, has ever floated: a bullet tax of $1.00 per bullet, a measure you claim will decrease crime in that it will 'substantially increase the cost of its' [sic] commission.' You claim that a bullet tax will work but that 'Increasing the cost of guns won't work because many criminals don't purchase new guns and they can be borrowed or even rented in some areas.'" ...
 

U.S. Senate Stands with NRA in Strongly Opposing U.N Gun Control Efforts

"For nearly 20 years, the NRA has worked tirelessly to oppose any United Nations effort to undermine the constitutional rights of law-abiding American gun owners."

"The latest attempt by the U.N. and global gun banners to eliminate our Second Amendment freedoms is to include civilian arms in the current Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), which will be finalized next year."

"In order for any treaty to take effect, however, it must be ratified by two-thirds of the U.S. Senate. To ensure that any ATT that includes civilian arms is dead on arrival in the Senate, the NRA has been working to get as many U.S. Senators as possible to publicly oppose any ATT that includes restrictions on civilian arms." ...

During the search for suspects, Garcia was parking his work van at 38 Edison Ave. when he encountered two Mount Vernon police officers."

From that day since, he hasn't told anyone who he is, where he came from, or what he was doing in Provo."

"Nothing goes simply when it involves the Dodgers these days. Not on the field, not with ownership, not in the courtroom and not with the Los Angeles Police Department."

"In the end, all that matters is that the LAPD arrests the two men who savagely beat Giants fan Bryan Stow on opening day at Dodger Stadium and that it leads to a just conviction."

"What doesn’t matter are grandstanding, self-congratulatory news conferences, particularly when you’ve arrested the wrong guy."

"LAPD Chief Charlie Beck has been quiet since the Thursday arrest of two new suspects in the Stow beating and announcement they had determined that the suspect arrested in May was not involved in the attack." ...

... "... D.C. laws prohibit dealers from opening a firearms enterprise within 300 feet of a residence, school, playground, public library, or house of worship — restrictions that have no effect on the use of guns near or around any of these places. But since anyone purchasing a firearm must go to the police station to register it, D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier reasoned that, in the interest of efficiency, the MPD could ignore the fact that its headquarters building sits within 300 feet of a church!" ...

"Anyone strolling through Centennial Park in Venice on Saturday morning may suddenly be surrounded by scores of people with handguns openly strapped to their waists."

"At 9 a.m., perhaps as many as 100 gun-toting folks will begin marching for about a mile along West Venice Avenue to the beach, ostensibly to fish. But the larger goal in this first-ever demonstration in Florida is to showcase a loophole in Florida's 'open carry' prohibition, which has banned the unauthorized display of firearms in public since 1987." ...
