"A video made by terrorist Adam Pearlman, aka Azzam al-Amriki, urging Muslims to purchase guns and kill Americans, has sent a nation of 307 million people into hysteria. It seems that this frenzy has been enough to further restrict and limit the sales of guns. But wasn’t that the intention of the video?" ...

... "Because the work paid for by the Joyce Foundation followed the establishment media rule that guns are a blight on society, however, nobody made a peep about the obvious conflict of interest. Of course, the establishment media never follows the same rules in how they treat both sides of the gun issue."

"Half a year after the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), the Obama administration is set to release a series of reforms to the current gun law, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said on Thursday."

"The reforms, which are being crafted by the Department of Justice, come after a series of meetings with relevant stakeholders in the Second Amendment debate. But in a nod to the difficulties of getting legislation through a Republican-run House of Representatives, only executive orders or administrative actions -- and not an actual bill -- are expected to be handed to Congress." ...

"Friday marks six months since the Tucson shooting which severely injured Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the White House is now hinting it's prepared to add its own voice to the gun control dialogue that tragedy reignited.

"'As you know, the President directed the Attorney General to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve Americans' safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights,' White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Thursday." ...

Submitter's Note: The problem with the antis' "data" is, they lie! Click on the link in the article and the first "datum" you'll see is "5 children were killed every day in gun related accidents and suicides committed with a firearm, from 1994-1998". Yet to get that number you have to include "children" up to age nineteen!. And if you look at the data from, say this century (2001-2007), even with the same ludicrous age limit the average drops to 2.65 per day.

I find it interesting that while many of these same people wear seatbelts all the time, understanding that they can't know exactly when they might be involved in a collision, they aren't planning to apply this same strategy when it comes to carrying their concealed firearm. They'll just carry it, they reason, when think they might need it."

"This faulty logic has come to mind a lot over the past few weeks as I've came across two incidents in the Buckeye State involving persons being attacked while working outside in their yard." ...

Honduras? Why would ATF walk guns to Honduras? 1. The national scope of the Gunwalker Scandal & 2. Because that's where some of the action is.

"'Why would ATF walk guns to Honduras?' asks a reader. That's easy."

"First, and this is important to understand: the Tampa operation proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that 'Project Gunwalker' was a national strategy, not a Phoenix aberration. The 'major media' has been slow to understand this. They have ignored the fact that the Houston Field Division had to have played a supervisory role in known straw buying incidents in Dallas and Columbus NM as they are in their area of operations, not Phoenix's. Original reporting on this subject from Texas has been pitiful."

"Second, Honduras is where the action is." ...

As recently as 2004, MSNBC sent reporters to the streets to be sure up and coming generations had not forgotten what Nixon had done. (I don’t want to belabor the point, but Nixon had nothing to do with planning Watergate. Only with covering it up once he learned of it after the fact.)" ...

"No one died during the Watergate break-ins or as a result of Nixon’s cover-up."

"Don't look now, but the real action in Washington this week isn't the parti san wrangling over the debt ceiling but something -- literally -- even more incendiary: Operation Fast and Furious, which seems about to explode right in the face of Attorney General Eric Holder -- and maybe other administration officials, too."

"Also known as Project Gunrunner, the Arizona-based operation was supposed to be a sting, under which the [ATF] allowed 'straw purchasers' to transfer weapons from gun shops in Arizona to Mexican drug cartels to trace and halt crossborder arms-trafficking."

"That's the official version, anyway -- but it's crumbling, fast." ...

House Judiciary Committee Exempts "Constitutional" Rights Lawsuits From Sanctions Bill

"... The House Judiciary Committee acted on the [Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act] today, voting on party lines to send it to the floor for full consideration by the House. But an amendment offered by Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA) to exempt claims based 'on the Constitution' from the tougher sanctions won unanimous approval. The amendment would ensure that civil rights claims, such as those brought to protect religious liberty under the First Amendment, gun rights under the Second Amendment, or equal protection claims under the 14th Amendment, can pursued without fear of tougher sanctions. In my earlier posts, I expressed concern over LARA's impact on litigation brought by social conservatives, so the amendment should ameliorate those concerns." ...

"Eric Zorn is a columnist and blogger for the Chicago Tribune who writes the 'Change of Subject' blog for the them. He readily acknowledges that he is not a shooter. He also recognizes that the Range Law passed by the Chicago City Council is an ugly monstrosity."

"In a post entitled City misfires in passing new gun-range law Zorn skewers the City Council and the hastily passed ordinance. He calls the law and its passage a 'legislative raspberry' that taunts the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals just after the city got slapped down in Ezell. It is a taunt because of all the inane burdensome rules contained within it." ...

"The federal judiciary is slowly coming to the realization that the Second Amendment actually means the public can have guns. That’s not sitting well with local politicians in Chicago and Washington who are determined to keep the public disarmed. On Wednesday, the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals made that harder by blowing away the claim that 'gun violence' concerns justified rules depriving citizens of the right not only to own but also to use firearms in a responsible manner." ...

... "The plaintiffs here challenge the City Council's treatment of firing ranges. The Ordinance mandates one hour of range training as a prerequisite to lawful gun ownership ... yet at the same time prohibits all firing ranges in the city ... The plaintiffs contend that the Second Amendment protects the right to maintain proficiency in firearm use—including the right to practice marks-manship at a range—and the City's total ban on firing ranges is unconstitutional. They add that the Ordinance severely burdens the core Second Amendment right to possess firearms for self-defense because it conditions possession on range training but simultaneously forbids range training everywhere in the city. ..." ...

"U.S. District Judge Virginia Kendall rejected a call for a preliminary injunction against the ordinance, finding that plaintiffs' lacked standing because their Second Amendment rights were not burdened by having to travel to one of 14 firing ranges located within 50 miles of the city limits for training. Any inconvenience or travel expense could be compensated through monetary damages and was thus not a constitutional question, Kendall found."

... "... Sure we have carry permits for firearms and anyone can apply. No you can’t get one because you must be up to something just for asking. I’m being sarcastic but the underpinning of the law and administrative code leads me to believe this. After all, why would anyone need a gun but to shoot someone. And if you’re going to shoot someone then we will not allow you to carry that gun. In poetic terms it is the NJ equivalent to a Catch-22. New Jerseyians know it as the dreaded 'justifiable need' clause. You need one to be approved but no one has a need that a judge can see as justifiable."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's. — Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp
