"A controversial FBI memo that appears to profile potential terrorists as people purchasing survivalist-type products, plus high-capacity magazines and bipods for rifles surfaced Saturday at the Washington Arms Collectors’ monthly gun show at the Puyallup Fairgrounds."

"The memo is now being discussed on numerous gun rights blogs and forums, and was apparently revealed just days ago by a group called the Oath Keepers. The fellow handing it out at Puyallup was a stranger to this column. This column discovered that the memo apparently has been circulated also by the Washington State Department of Agriculture." ...

"The left-wing media and conservatives generally agree that the First Amendment to the Constitution, which protects freedom of the press, must be preserved. They part company on the Second Amendment to the Constitution. The right to keep and bear arms is as clear and concise as any amendment to the Constitution, yet the liberal media attacks it constantly. It is wrong to restrict the press, but right to restrict the right to bear arms." ...

"For more than a century, the nation’s firearms industry has been concentrated in Northeastern and Midwestern states that now have restrictive gun-control laws."

"But recently, states like Idaho, Alabama and Montana have presented a novel argument as part of an effort to lure the industry’s high-paying jobs south and west: Gunmakers would be happier and more successful among their own — citizens who regularly use firearms — than they would in states trying to limit gun rights." ...

"They’ve been on a losing streak in the lower courts." ...

"The [Heller and McDonald] decisions were seen as a green light to challenge gun restrictions across the country, and the lawsuits have come raining down — more than two a week, according to the anti-gun Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence."

"But it is the Brady Center that is crowing about the results." ...

"There's this old joke about the heroic three-legged pig. A passer-by inquires about the missing leg. Regaling the questioner with the pig's derring-do — saving his life from a house fire, a raging river and an oncoming truck — the farmer finally explains the missing leg."

"'You wouldn't expect me to eat a great pig like this all at once, would you?'"

"Gun owners: You are the National Rifle Association's three-legged pig." ...

"It is with a sense of urgency that the members of the Board of Park Commissioners of the city of South Bend feel an obligation to voice our concerns regarding a recent bill passed by the Indiana General Assembly. With all due respect for different positions regarding the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the board has serious concerns as to the possession of weapons, concealed and otherwise, at public recreation venues. Simply put, it is difficult to comprehend the reasoning behind recent legislative action." ...

Submitter's Note: The reasoning? How about the fact that a civil right is a civil right and not subject to arbitrary infringement.

"The hacks and flacks on the mainstream media are all salivating at the thought that Rupert Murdock and his Fox News powerhouse might be brought to its knees. However, you don’t hear a word from them about a burgeoning scandal leading right to the White House that, in the words of some, will wind up being bigger than the Iran-Contra Scandal."

"So, what are the 'big boys' failing to report? Simply that many of the guns that have found their way into the hands of Mexico’s drug cartels came from the U.S. government compliments of the [ATF]. ... All with the approval of Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder." ...

"Phoenix U. S. Attorney Dennis Burke, who recently argued against allowing the parents of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry to be considered victims, should be removed from office over the Project Gunrunner Fast and Furious operation, charges firearms writer and Second Amendment analyst Mike Vanderboegh." ...

"'Why is Burke still in office there in Phoenix? Everyone understands the testimony that's been given in the hearings, the documents that have been released by Sen. Grassley and Rep. [Darrell] Issa,' he said. 'Everybody understands that he (Burke) was neck deep in Gunrunner. Everybody understands that it was Gunrunner weapons that killed Brian Terry. Why is it then not a conflict of interest for Burke to remaining that job?'" ...

15 Years in Prison For Taping the Cops? How Eavesdropping Laws Are Taking Away Our Best Defense Against Police Brutality

... "One would think the fear of videographers on every block would be a powerful deterrent to police misconduct. However, legislatures are not taking this newfound power against police abuse lightly. In at least three states, it is illegal to record any on-duty police officer, even if the encounter involves you and may be necessary to your defense, and even if the recording is on a public street where no expectation of privacy exists. The legal justification is usually based on the warped interpretation of existing wiretapping or eavesdropping laws with statutes against obstructing law enforcement sometimes cited." ...

"As politicians in London debate whether or not social media services should be shut down to prevent possible crimes, an American transit company did just that." ...

"In a statement released Friday, the government-run transit company said it allowed expressive activities, protected by the First Amendment in its public areas. But in the areas accessible to paid ticket passengers, it interrupted the phone to ensure safety for its customers and employees. 'BART temporarily interrupted service at select BART stations as one of many tactics to ensure the safety of everyone on the platform,' the statement reads." ...

"A recent study found that Oakland police officers drew their guns and pointed them at individuals who did not present a threat 28 percent of the time." ...

... "'In each instance where there was a question as to whether an officer's action was appropriate, we gave any benefit of doubt to the involved officers,' Warshaw wrote, 'and we saw many examples of fine, proactive police work, and officers making good arrests. ... We are, however, troubled by the high number of instances where the officers' pointing of a firearm was not necessary or appropriate, given the documentation we reviewed.'" ...

"Asher initially refused to comply with Cole's commands that he lay on the ground and put his arms behind his back. As a result, numerous other deputies arrived on the scene to provide back-up. During Asher's arrest a deputy reportedly spotted several firearms in Asher's car."

"The officers then began an extensive search, led by McClure, in which they reportedly came across numerous firearms, large amounts of ammunition and medical supplies. Asher was arrested and taken to Lumpkin County Detention Center where he faced several weapons and drug related charges." ...

"Shoot!"

"That's what the Discovery Channel is doing in the Gunsmoke gun store, the venerable shot shop in Wheat Ridge. The cable channel is busy filming a 12-episode reality docu-series on the business of guns. Building them, buying them, selling them — and teaching people how to shoot and be safe. Discovery has been on site every minute since mid-June and won't wrap until mid-September. The show will debut in mid-October."

... "You don’t need to know what’s happening in Britain to be able to supply them with more bats. But it helps to know more about your customers, so you check the news and learn that violent riots have been breaking out nightly in cities across England. Shops have been trashed, looted and burned. People have been robbed, beaten and even killed."

"Where are the police? They are overwhelmed by the volume and brazenness of the outbreaks. They are also constrained in their response by what appears on the surface to be modern Western restraint, but is in fact a symptom of the modern evasion of social realities that we lamely call 'political correctness.' ..." ...

"Six people, including three children, have been killed in a knife attack on the usually peaceful island of Jersey."

"Police say a man, two women and the children were attacked at a flat in a secluded part of the capital, St Helier, on Sunday afternoon." ...

Submitter's note: How can this possibly have happened when the gun control advocates say how much safer we are in the UK without "weapons of mass destruction", or firearms as they are generally known?
Incidentally the number of dead is the same as in the Arizona shooting where the killer had those deadly 30 round "assault clips", which shows how dangerous they are.......
