"The Spokane Spokesman-Review reported yesterday that the overwhelming majority of financial support for Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure pushed by the Seattle-based Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR), comes from just ten zip codes in and around — surprise! — the Seattle area."

... "But there is apparently no empathy for Shaneen Allen, a South Philadelphia black woman who was stopped in New Jersey for a minor traffic violation. Allen, who was trying to do the right thing, informed the officer that she had a Pennsylvania Carry Permit, and was in possession of a handgun. She had passed a background check, and done everything right, except, she was unaware of the despotic nature of the Garden State's gun laws." ...

"In April, the Senate rejected the Toomey-Manchin gun control proposal. In the wake of its defeat many asked why gun owners and their organizations resisted so limited a measure. Granted, it would have had little but symbolic benefit. Its core was to require background checks at gun shows (which Bureau of Justice Statistics concluded involved a whole 0.8 percent of crime guns) and on Internet gun sales (a miniscule proportion, most of which probably go through licensed dealers anyway). But why not accept something so modest, in light of the draconian ideas then being floated as alternatives?" ...

"Go Topless on August 24 has prompted many protests and events nationwide, but the Austin, Texas go topless march is less about gender discrimination and more about guns and the Second Amendment. Women in several Texas towns are planning on letting it all hang out in an effort to prove that breasts are less dangerous than guns and should be viewed as 'family friendly.'" ...

"In a highly controversial move, the leadership of the Connecticut Bar Association lobbied to pass Governor Dannel Malloy’s restrictive 'toughest-in-the-nation' gun control laws. The move has sparked unprecedented opposition within the body. From the courant.com: 'Why is our bar association taking a position on a matter that has nothing to do with the practice of law?' Hartford lawyer and former Democratic state Chairman John Droney asked in an email typical of hundreds of others inspired by a debate that has continued now for two months.' . . ." ...

Well let me explain something to you cowardice fools who think you are so tough behind all your propaganda videos.

"More Americans can carry guns in more places than ever before. In the majority of states, law-abiding gun owners can walk into bars, restaurants and churches with their guns without fear of legal ramifications, a News 21 review of all 50 states found."

"'It's a situation just like getting up in the morning and putting your shoes on or your boots on. For me it's putting (my gun) onto my side,' said Lee Bird, owner of Twin Birds Saddlery in Wickenburg, Arizona, 60 miles northwest of Phoenix. Bird openly carries a .38 Smith & Wesson Special revolver on his hip everyday." ...

"Aaron Zelman, JPFO's late, great founder, was a man of uncompromising principles. He wouldn't have yielded a millimeter on some things. If you'd have held him upside down and threatened to drop him over the rim of the Grand Canyon unless he repudiated pure, hardcore gun rights, he'd have probably said, 'Go ahead. Do it.'"

"And then, if you did, he'd have found a way to land safely on his feet. He was that kind of guy."

"On the other hand, Aaron was a very reasonable human being. If you could make a good argument for something, he could change his mind faster than a Lamborghini goes from zero to 60." ...

"'A housewife and a cat will both chase mice out of the kitchen. But the cat wants more mice to come back.'"

"– Aaron Zelman"

"Somebody reminded me this week of that statement from Aaron, the late, great founder of [JPFO]. That was how Aaron contrasted himself and JPFO with Alan Gottlieb and Gottlieb’s SAF/CCRKBA."

"Aaron wanted to educate people so that victim disarmament would go away. He would have been thrilled to be able to close JPFO’s doors and say, 'We’ve done it.'"

"On the other hand, he despised Alan Gottlieb and saw him as an opportunist who used scary mailings to turn SAF/CCRKBA into a fundraising factory. He saw Gottlieb as a person who needed and wanted 'gun control' because that’s what kept the money and the publicity flowing." ...

What I'm interested in doing is helping, and seeing that positive efforts toward liberty are promoted and supported. So all I can do is that which I've said from the start, from before the JPFO news became public knowledge: I will continue my efforts for the organization until such time as someone tells me they don't want me to, or until I come to see that my faith has been misplaced." ...

"Aside from the gun nut thing, and much like our boy Leghorn, my other interests outside of work include aviation. According to my parents, my first full sentence was, 'I see it!' while pointing to the sky at a passing plane. Like the gun thing, it is an open secret at work that I’ve got a soft spot for airplanes. Knowing this, one of my coworkers recommended that I read The Dog Stars because, “Its about a pilot and a gun nut living at an airport in a post apocalyptic world near Denver. Right up your alley.” He wasn’t wrong about my enjoyment of The Dog Stars, but not for the reasons he assumed . . ." ...

"A concealed carrier in Georgia is being heralded by police today after he opened fire on an armed robber. Police say the man’s actions likely lead to an arrest."

"It all went down at a Gamestop store in Macon, GA. Tim Jackson, the concealed carrier, was there to buy a game for his son. Things went wrong when a man armed with a rifle that Jackson described as an 'assault rifle' walked in and robbed the place."

"Jackson, fearing that the man might become violent with other people or rob another store, ran to his car where his gun was stored. According to WMAZ, this is what happened next,"
"Jackson says he met eyes with the suspect, and says Javon Britton appeared to reach for his gun."

"All you can do is shake your head....... All lead for bullets will have to come from overseas! ..."

"There are numerous alarming reasons why the US government and the military have been buying up all the ammo. Here's one of them. Obama and the EPA just shut down the last lead smelting plant in the US . They raised the EPA regulations by 10 fold and it would have cost the plant $100 million to comply. You can own all the guns you want, but if you can't get ammo, you are out of luck. ..." ...

"We need to embrace this corruption. This new anti-gun bill not only confiscates weapons and ammunition from innocent firearms owners, it can bar them from entering sensitive government offices. There it is! Now we have the legislation we need. We finally have legislation that keeps the crazies out of public office!" ...

"The Seattle Times this morning is reporting new information on a double slaying in Kent this week that raises new questions about a gun control initiative, and why efforts to restrict firearms rights across the country are turning more people against the gun prohibition lobby."

"The new information comes, ironically, on the heels of yesterday’s e-mail appeal from anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s 'Everytown for Gun Safety'” the $50 million so-called 'grasstoots' group pushing the ex-New York mayor’s restrictive gun control agenda nationwide. This particular e-mail, signed by Meera Bhardwaj, Everytown’s Washington State organizing director, pushes Initiative 594 with an incredibly vulnerable argument." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense or by partial orders of towns...is a dissolution of the government. — John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America (1787-1788).
