"President Obama told the BBC he's 'stymied' because he’s not gotten his way regarding gun control --yet. So, apparently we should just relinquish our guns during a Second Amendment burning ceremony on the National Lawn."

"Obama’s upset more Americans don’t agree with his definition of 'common sense' gun control. If Pew Research is correct, a majority of us lean more toward Lt. Col. Allen West’s 'index finger' definition whereby individuals should be trusted to call the shots. Pew says the majority of Americans still support gun rights." ...

"Is this the end of the gun control debate? The Washington Post’s reported–probably to Everytown’s dismay–that more Americans see gun ownership as the solution in fighting crime, and not the problem:" ...

"Moreover, the pro-gun control crowd had their narrative shattered when [the AME shooter] was able to purchase a firearm because his pending narcotics charge wasn’t properly entered into the National Instant Background Check System [NICS]. That’s not to say that the system should be dismantled, but the aura of government being efficient in supplying that security blanket by expanding background checks was gutted, or at least it should be. The feds utterly failed to keep us safe in this instance." ...

"The U.S. Constitution's guarantee of the right to bear arms is 'absurd,' but something Americans must live with in a gun-saturated nation in desperate need of reform, renowned civil-rights lawyer Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV."

Former MD Gov. Martin O’Malley: Gun Control Extremist or Just Honest?

"Writing for The Boston Globe, ex-Maryland governor and presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley reacted to the shooting in a LaFayette cinema with a call for more gun control. 'We need comprehensive gun safety laws to save lives,' O’Malley opines, using the gun control-euphemism-of-the-moment. Come to think of it, considering his radical suggestions for combatting 'gun violence,' I reckon we can substitute the words '90 degree slippery slope to a complete gun ban' for 'comprehensive gun safety laws.' Check it . . ." ...

"Our Operation Protect the Protectors has been a phenomenal success nationwide, with many Oath Keepers in every state answering the call, and we have seen other groups and individuals also step up, in true American spirit, to do likewise. The response from the recruiters, from the local police, and the local communities has been overwhelmingly positive. ..."

"However, there has been a bit of confusion since the DOD memo(s) have come out directing the recruiters to call the local police when armed citizens show up to stand guard ... Some have taken that to mean we can no longer guard recruiters, or that the recruiters no longer want us there. Both beliefs are in error." ...

"A 62-year-old man with a gun in each hand fired at four people – including a 1-year-old boy – before a civilian with a concealed carry permit returned fire and wounded the shooter, cops told FOX19."

"Thomas McCary is being held without bond on four counts of felonious assault."

... "... police are currently investigating after a passenger in an Uber vehicle was allegedly shot during an 'altercation' with the driver. The 'altercation,' it turns out, was the passenger allegedly attempting to choke the driver, ... a retired New York City police officer who possessed a concealed carry permit."

"... 74-year-old Uber driver Steven Rayow stopped to pick up a rider near the Union Burger but before the ride even began an argument broke out."

"'The driver basically told us that the passenger started choking him. He had his hands around his neck, and in fear of losing consciousness, that's when the driver of the car pulled out a gun, and in the ensuing struggle, that gun went off,' police spokesman Rob Shaw said." ...

... "The sizable number of women who have their concealed carry is also another positive aspect of this analysis, and represents a shift in gun politics. Whereas the battle lines on gun control was usually drawn between men and women, Democrat and Republican, women have been lining up across the country for their carry permits. Female participation in shooting sports and ownership has the gun manufacturers seeing them–and rightfully so–as the next frontier in the industry. Now, men still represent the vast majority of gun owners, but more and more women are exercising their Second Amendment rights, enjoying it, and seeing its value–even in deep blue states like Illinois. ..." ...

"'A woman in Charleston, W.Va., may have saved her own life and the lives of many other women, as well, when she shot and killed an alleged attacker in her home last week.' That’s nothing really new. People successfully defend themselves from home invasions every day. And those doing the invading are rarely first-timers. They’re typically career criminals with a wrap sheets longer than a live rendition of 'Free Bird'. But as the msn.com reports, when Neal Falls showed up at the un-named woman’s home, he had 'a 'kill list,' multiple pairs of handcuffs and a Subaru full of weapons and tools, including a shovel, knives, a bulletproof vest, a machete, bleach, trash bags, sledgehammers and axes' . . ." ...

"Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has taken heat for accepting the NRA’s support early in his political career and his vote for the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The left-leaning mainstream media has fixed on Bernie’s supposedly pro-gun stance as his achilles heel. On Sunday’s Meet the Press, Sanders trotted-out his usual defense – with a twist. 'Coming from a rural state, I think I can communicate with folks coming from urban states, where guns mean different things than they do in Vermont, where [they are] used for hunting.' In fact, Bernie’s morphed from a 'guns are OK for self-defense in rural areas' to a proper 'guns are for hunting' Fudd. Check it out . . ." ...
 

Was Rick Perry right on guns at the movies?

... "So Perry has a point: Law-abiding citizens who can pass a background check should be able to carry guns in their cars, movie theaters, shopping malls and almost anywhere. The Second Amendment is an important one -- equally as important as the First Amendment, which protects the opinion that you are reading right now. If I have a right to live, I have the right to protect my life from the likes of James Holmes or anyone else."

"That being said, let's talk about an armed citizen in a movie theater during an active shooter situation, because Perry's solution is a little too simplistic in my view. Ask any cop, and you'll learn that active shooter situations are very complicated and there is often no perfect tactical solution." ...

"The shootings in Lafayette, La., are one more example of deaths due to gun violence in the United States. The public is told that nothing can be done about these because of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that refers to the “right to bear arms” that gun enthusiasts claim is virtually sacred."

"OK, then let’s consider 'bullet control.' After all, guns don’t kill people, bullets kill people." ...
