... "With the political considerations that beset any Congressional effort, and noting documented past deliberate indifference by the Office of Inspector General to whistleblower concerns about Fast and Furious, appointing an independent investigator —while noting who would object to one—could present the best option for uncovering the whole truth, and for identifying how high up into the Administration decisions resulting in 'walked' guns were made." ...

"With so many violent acts in America, what is under-reported is how intervention could have prevented the completion of those violent acts. This would be in spirit, in personal force, and involvement. These elements are missing from violence prevention programs as if they were useless. In truth, there are critical to the millions of reports annually from police around the country where citizens stop violence on their own." ...

"In the wake of revelations that the deranged killer in Norway used a Ruger Mini-14, the Violence Policy Center has released a 'report' calling the Mini-14 the 'poor man's assault rifle.'

"I don't think there’s a more ubiquitous and well loved pistol round than the 9mm. Sure .22lr is great for plinking, but it's so dirty and underpowered for home defense that you may as well be lobbing spitwads at the bad guys. Whether you're looking for something to make your range time a little quieter or to protect your hearing on your nightstand gun, Advanced Armament Corp. thinks they have the perfect accessory: their Ti-RANT 9."

... "There are three basic components to armed self-defense: gun handling, marksmanship and strategy. If you know how to load, carry and deploy your weapon safely, well done. If you can shoot a fist-sized group at a target whilst moving from combat distances, excellent. But if you’re training doesn’t include real-world strategic thinking, you’re missing THE critical element." ...
 

Gun Review: Century Arms International (Wise Lite Arms) Sterling Sporter

"There’s a reason George Lucas equipped his Storm Troopers with Sterling-based blasters and not MAT 49's, Jati-matics or Owens. The Sterling is one sexy-looking submachine gun (SMG). It's also got some serious pedigree. Fighting forces have deployed the Sterling SMG in many important conflicts to excellent effect. During the 1952-56 'Mau Mau Uprising' white Kenyan farmers and British counter-insurgency irregular units used the Sterling SMG to hold off determined, numerically superior forces. The Sterling also saw service in the 1948-60 Malayan Emergency, the 1969-1994 'troubles' in Northern Ireland and the 1982 Falklands War. You can purchase a Sterling for around $10k. Or you can buy the Century Arms Sterling Sporter . . ." ...

"Ever since it became clear that U.S. gun shops are major suppliers of weapons used by drug traffickers in Mexico, this country has had an obligation to help stop the slaughter south of the border."

"So far, however, the federal government has failed to make a dent in this destructive traffic. An early Obama administration initiative, known as Operation Fast and Furious, was widely ridiculed for giving agents of the [ATF] permission to allow drug cartel associates to buy weapons and smuggle them across the border in an attempt to gather evidence on Mexican kingpins. The program was shut down after it came to light." ...

KABA Note: Watch the guns go to Mexico, then pick them up at crime scenes . . . how exactly does this "gather evidence on Mexican kingpins"?

"History repeats itself. Monster commits mass murder in the most cowardly ways. Bomb in building, because there might have been armed police and security nearby if he had tried to kill the innocent one on one. THEN goes to an island where he knows there are no armed police OR armed citizens, and shoots helpless young people like the proverbial fish in a barrel…and surrenders as soon as armed protectors arrive, even though they’re too late to stop the horror."

"By its own admission, the [ATF] allowed dozens of gun smugglers to supply Mexican criminal cartels with thousands of firearms. Drug thugs used one of these weapons to assassinate U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry."

"The former ATF special agent in charge of the Phoenix Field Division testified to Congress that the White House and at least four other federal agencies had direct knowledge of 'Operation Fast and Furious.' Despite - or because of - the Nixonian cover-up following Terry's murder, the simmering scandal could topple the Obama administration. Regardless of the president's fate, it’s the ATF that needs to go."

"There are more than 20,000 gun laws in the United States. Scholars, attorneys, activists and historians know that gun laws have not prevented violence; murder is already illegal, with or without a gun. Often time, murder is the primary charge and gun crimes are forgotten. Also, many murders are not solved. Gun laws do not impact these."

"Experts know that gun registration has not solved a single crime." ...

From the beginning, he understood the issue, and worked with interested parties to produce good legislation. He worked Democrats and Republicans to help them understand the issue's importance and impact. The people of Ohio could not ask for anything more from a bill sponsor." ...
