"A generous $10,000 contribution to the Second Amendment Foundation's continuing legal efforts to roll back onerous gun laws across the country ... has been announced by Maryland Shall Issue (MSI), a grassroots gun rights organization."

"'We are grateful and humbled by the Maryland Shall Issue contribution,' said SAF Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. 'This single donation will greatly support our on-going legal battles to restore lost gun rights, one lawsuit at a time.'"

"In an e-mail announcement to its members, MSI noted, 'This is one of the times where we must stand up as a community and demonstrate our commitment to supporting those that are supporting us. In this case, we want to support the SAF.'" ...

Safer Streets 2010: More shootings... challenging government?? Part I

"Tens of millions of gun owners generally suspect news coverage of criminal shootings when reports seem timed to surround pending gun laws or second amendment court wins. So far this year, and the week of August 6th wasn't much different, we see several reports of criminal shootings stating that the shooter was trying to overthrow the government."

"If that is indeed the case here in America, why hasn't it happened already? Because it already happened once, and that one time when our freedoms were purchased then is enough to secure our rights today and always. That is, when the servant obeys the laws. The current squabble is that it is they who are breaking the laws, not we." ...

"An intense search in and around Yellowstone National Park for a pair of prison escapees and a woman – suspects in a New Mexico double slaying – underscores why self-defense advocates fought so hard for the ability of private citizens to carry defensive firearms inside national parks."

Ideally, one would never need a firearm on a camping trip, but when things go very bad and you do need a gun, you need that gun 'right now.'" ...

"In Part I, I wrote about how servants seems to be trying to goad gun owners and militia-types into doing something stupid. I pointed out why that is unlikely, and before November, it is important for citizens outside the liberty culture to look at this."

"The second and third reasons are these: Liberty purists operate on the knowledge that we are the sovereign and the servant is not, and the knowledge that this is more than sufficient to protect our interests non-violently in fortifying that first reason. Put another way: we have confidence in the system. When you believe in due process as we do, ... when you love this system, and when you live by it and depend on it so, you understand that provocation won't work on you. ..." ...

"As a kid, there was one toy I frequented more than anything with a barrel or trigger: LEGO® blocks. With these ingenious Danish creations, I was more than merely a defender of good and an avenger of evil; I was in control of literally everything. Pre-packaged kits for planes, trains, cars, municipal buildings or even spacecraft ultimately morphed into a custom-made (for me, by me) LEGO city nestled upon a discarded, three-tiered entertainment center. What made this possible? No, Benjamin, not 'plastics;' modularity made this possible. Enter the SIG SAUER P250." ...

"Gun guru Jeff Cooper's 'Gunsite Color Code' describes four states of preparedness. White (unaware and unprepared), yellow (relaxed alert), orange (specific alert) and red (time to cap yo' ass). 'There is a problem in that some students insist upon confusing the appropriate color with the amount of danger evident in the situation,' Cooper kvetched. 'As I have long taught, you are not in any color state because of the specific amount of danger you may be in, but rather in a mental state which enables you to take a difficult psychological step. ...' With all due respect, the Code is a bitch to teach because it's confusing and impractical." ...

NRA Statement on Elena Kagan's Confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court

"On Thursday, August 05, 2010, the U.S. Senate confirmed Elena Kagan to the highest Court in the land. To NRA members and gun owners nationwide, Ms. Kagan presents a clear and present danger to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Her political record reveals that she does not believe the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right and, in her recent testimony, she refused to acknowledge respect for the God-given right of self-defense. That is why, more than a month ago, the NRA announced its strong opposition to Elena Kagan's confirmation to the Court. In that announcement, it was made very clear that this vote matters and will be considered in the NRA's candidate evaluations." ...

"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) cited what he described as Elena Kagan's defense of the Second Amendment last week as he explained his vote to confirm her to the Supreme Court."

"'The roots of General Kagan's respect for the rule of law are in her respect for our separation of powers,' Reid said ... 'It is a reverence she developed ... defending the First and Second Amendments ...'"

"Reid's statement that Kagan had a record of 'defending' the Second Amendment contrasts with information about Kagan’s record on gun issues put out during her confirmation hearings by leading gun-rights groups, including the National Rifle Association and the Gun Owners of America, both of which opposed Kagan's confirmation." ...

Regarding our post early today about State Rep. Brian Nieves allegedly assaulting a political rival and threatening him with a gun...

Now's there the following from Nieves' radio program. In the video Nieves says he has "no problem" calling an AR-15 what it is: an "assault rifle." He then goes on to add: "Of all the firearms available today, the AR is the one that would most squarely fit inside the perfect definition of the spirit of the Second Amendment."

And why does he think this? Because, says Nieves, the Second Amendment was "not about hunting." Er, yeah, no s**t.

"Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kirk said Monday that he supports the Supreme Court decision that effectively knocked down Chicago's handgun ban."

"The five-term congressman has favored several gun-control laws during his career representing the North Shore. But as Kirk runs statewide for the first time, downstate voters who generally support greater Second Amendment rights are keeping tabs on politicians' stances on gun control."

"Kirk's comments, made after a foreign policy speech, come as the Chicago City Council recently enacted new gun-control measures in an effort to thread the needle between keeping guns off the streets and abiding by the court ruling this summer that gutted the city's longtime handgun ban." ...

In most cases, the person wants to die, but is not able to carry out the act himself for whatever reason."
