... "As for the Alaska primary in two days, a large part of whether Miller can maintain his last-minute momentum and beat the odds is up to gun owners who understand what he and Gun Owners of America are saying, that all credible documentation shows amnesty will lead to Democrat majorities that will essentially gut what the law recognizes as 'gun rights.'" ...

"District Court Judge Catherine Blake said military style rifles are unusual and dangerous. That wasn’t an easy decision to reach. Judge Blake concluded the government needs guns for its protection, but you don’t. It is her conclusion that doesn’t make sense. ..."

"Judge Blake said the government may deny civilians the right to own a firearm because the firearm is too dangerous. Set aside the historical fact that magazine fed semi-automatic rifles were designed over a hundred years ago. Look at them today. Modern military rifles are designed to be easy to carry, easy to operate, and adaptable to fit a soldier of any size. Those features make modern rifles popular with civilians even now. Set that fact aside too." ...

"Lee's note: This submission was sent by Mike Weisser who, when he writes on HuffPo, describes himself as a 'firearms retailer, wholesaler, importer and firearms trainer and NRA Life member.'"

"The guys at Ammoland wrote a story about Mike last year. It speaks for itself." ...

"Based upon some of his stories, Mike's not a fan of the NRA or a Second Amendment, even though he markets himself as an industry insider.' Based upon this submission, he's not a fan of me either."

"Why post it, you ask? Well, I've always wanted this site to be a free marketplace of ideas, where all opinions are welcome ... I just want to make sure my readers understand the context of the submission, hence the rather lengthy intro." ...

"Twenty months after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., some would say little has changed when it comes to guns in America."

"Others would say everything has."

"Flurries of gun-related legislation and renewed attention on the topic have not been enough to change federal gun laws. The National Rifle Association, still the most powerful entity in the war over guns in America, no longer has a monopoly on the debate."

"A resurgence of the gun-control movement is challenging the status quo, and groups to the right of the NRA are also growing. Nonprofit organizations on each side are battling as they haven't in years ..." ...

"Four months after the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut lawmakers banned at least 115 types of semi-automatic firearms."

"Four months after the shooting of a congresswoman and a federal judge in Tucson, lawmakers in Arizona declared the Colt Army Action Revolver the official state gun."

"The similarities in the attacks were striking: Both were carried out by heavily armed young men with histories of mental illness. But in the aftermath of the tragedies, the states took radically different approaches to gun violence." ...

"I can remember very clearly one of the first conversations I ever had with Erik Lund of FNH USA’s pro shooting team. He took one look at my footwear and looked at me with an inquisitive look, obviously disapproving of my dapper Danner boots. I knew I had done something wrong, I just wasn’t quite sure yet. Never fear — he quickly let me know that apparently my footwear was proof that I wasn’t taking this whole 3-gun thing seriously." ...

"In nearly 30 years at Heckler & Koch, a legendary German gunmaker, Ernst Mauch designed some of the world’s most lethal weapons, including the one that reportedly killed Osama bin Laden. A state regulator once called him a “rock star” in the industry."

"Now the gun world sees him a different way: as a traitor. The target of their fury is the smart gun Mauch designed at Armatix, a start-up near Munich. The very concept of the weapon has been attacked by U.S. gun rights advocates even as it helps Mauch resolve a sense of guilt that has haunted him his entire career. He knows children have killed each other with his guns. Crimes have been committed with them." ...

"One of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's gun-control groups this week will begin pressuring the nation's largest supermarket operator to dissuade individuals from openly carrying weapons in its stores, following successful campaigns with other national retailers."

"The bid to change Kroger Co.'s policy comes after Mr. Bloomberg's groups ... have had mixed results in backing candidates in elections and trying to influence changes in government gun regulations. The groups have won public-relations victories when Target Corp. and Starbucks Corp. said they would ask customers to not bring guns into their outlets, although those companies said they would continue to follow state and local gun laws ..." ...

"While the National Instant Criminal Background Check System remains the only square inch of compromise between the nation’s divided gun camps, the costly federal program is failing to keep guns away from the dangerously mentally ill."

"The White House describes the background check system, also known as NICS, as its “most important tool” to stopping gun crime. But more than a decade of data from the FBI and public health research reveals broad failings of the system, which has cost at least $650 million to maintain, a News21 investigation found."

"Nearly all sides of the gun debate have devoted resources to strengthening the background check system, confronting technology gaps, coordination failures and privacy concerns." ...

"A week ago, most likely you'd never heard of Ferguson, Missouri. Now, you're probably sick of hearing about the aftermath of policeman Darren Wilson's killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown -- events that made Ferguson the center of the media world."

"You may believe that Brown was an innocent, unarmed kid headed for college or that he was the formidably vicious strong-arm robber shown in surveillance videos. You may believe Brown was on his knees, arms raised in surrender and supplication when Wilson executed him. You may believe that Wilson fired in self defense as Brown lunged for the officer's gun. ..."

"Social media has been abuzz with pictures of rioting and looting in the Missouri town following the tragic police shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown last week." ...

"Pictures of the tensions have been splashed across social media, with business owners now claiming they have been forced to defend their stores themselves after “gun shy” police have stopped confronting looters."

"So maybe considering all, state elections officials might want to brace for a surge of voter registrations."

"That’s because the longtime martial-arts champion, movie and television actor and WND commentator has launched a new ad in conjunction with the National Rifle Association’s Trigger the Vote registration campaign."

"In it he explains a little bit about why people should register and vote, through a Top Ten List:" ...

"One of the most frequent questions I have been asked during my campaign for Sheriff has been, 'What is your stance on the Second Amendment?' The short answer is that I am the only candidate for Sheriff in Harford County who supports your Second Amendment Rights."

"I am fully in support of every citizen’s right to keep and bear arms. Any time I have answered this question; my answer has been strong and consistent. I have stayed the course and remained committed to my position on the 2nd Amendment. Unfortunately, the incumbent has stated his support of the 2nd Amendment, but his actions have been inconsistent and in fact contradict his publically stated views." ...

"While Washington state voters won't weigh in on two competing gun-related ballot measures for months, money is already pouring into the campaigns in advance of the November election."

"Initiative 594, which is proposing universal background checks for gun sales and transfers, has a significant fundraising advantage over its rival. Initiative 591 would prevent Washington state from adopting background-check laws that go beyond the national standard, which requires the checks for sales by licensed dealers but not for purchases from private sellers. Both campaigns are expected to draw national money in the coming months as the campaign heats up." ...

"In April, Governor Nathan Deal signed a new gun bill (HB-60) in to law, the Bill opponents coined the 'guns everywhere bill'."

"Deal said at the signing ceremony held during a picnic in Ellijay, GA, 'The Second Amendment should never be an afterthought. It should be at the forefront of our minds.' Deal also said the passage of the Bill protects the Constitutional rights of Georgians who have gone through a background check to legally obtain a Georgia Weapons Carry License."

"Whether you are for or against the new gun bill (which could be coming back up in the next legislative session for review), there exists a question local lawmakers across the state are faced with – Should guns be allowed in City Hall?" ...

"Detroit police chief James Craig – nicknamed 'Hollywood' for his years spent in the LAPD and his seeming love of being in front of the camera – has repeatedly called on 'good' and 'law-abiding' Detroiters to arm themselves against criminals in the city."

"His words have not fallen on deaf ears."

"Patricia Champion, a 63-year-old lifelong Detroiter, a grandmother and retired educator, decided to get her concealed pistol license -- a CPL -- two years ago after her son said he was increasingly worried for her safety. Champion, a resident of northwest Detroit, mostly keeps her gun, a 9mm Glock 19 that set her back $600, in her house." ...

... "... as they typically do in domestic disputes, police separated the husband and wife for questioning. Then, in what police say is also standard procedure in such cases, they asked the Lintners, 'Do you have any firearms in the house?'"

"Richard Lintner had almost 200 guns, most of them locked in steel vaults, police said. And he refused their request to enter the house and examine the weapons, for which the police say he had proper owner’s permits."

"So began an 11-hour dispute that ended with police obtaining a search warrant and then summoning the Fire Department with its Jaws of Life, often used to extract people trapped in crashed cars." ...

"Looters in Ferguson, Mo., were met with little police resistance Friday night and store owners say they were forced to protect their businesses with their own guns ..."

"'I think the first message is to remind all law enforcement that they are hired to serve and protect and if they’re going to sit back and watch looting, they're not serving us; they’re not protecting us,' Pastor Robert White told the station."

"A reporter from the station tweeted that police cars were seen driving past some of the stores being looted and did not respond. ..."

"Two store owners, standing outside their business holding guns, told Fox2Now.com that when they called 911, they were sent from one police agency to another, and got no response." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Today the taxing power, rather than chattel slavery, is the instrument by which the parasitical element of the population subsists. And that element, which includes politicians, panics at the slightest reduction in the state's power to plunder. Once you start liberating taxpayers, even a little tiny bit, nobody knows where it may end. —Joseph Sobran
