... "So here's the question: Will you do this as well? No excuses, right now, you're not doing anything else anyway, it will only take a minute...? And don't use your rep being anti-gun as an excuse--if they are, why wouldn't you want to be a part of sending them thousands of messages of defiance?" ...

... "It seems we’ve gotten to the point where if you kill a mother bear you go on trial, and if you murder a mother human you don’t. That is, assuming you’re one of the exalted super citizen 'Only Ones.' And that there are people in high places who know how to work things when their interests are involved."

... "As most decent people are watching the stock market gyrations and following our federal government’s mismanagement of both monetary and fiscal policy, our nation is entering an unpredictable phase. I’m sorry to say that, based on history, things are going to get worse. Just look at London, England, where four nights of rioting hooligans have resulted in the deployment of an extra 16,000 police officers in an attempt to stop the looting, vandalism, destruction, assaults, and robbery."

... "Colin Godard, a survivor of the deadliest shooting massacre in U.S. history at Virginia Tech, addressed the national convention of the 2nd Amendment Foundation (2AF) and Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC)." ...

"'People , criminals, don’t follow the rules,' Colin said. 'They shoot past the laws that only affect the law abiding people. You know I understand people will always run red lights, people will always drive recklessly, there will be some people who will always speed. So is your idea that we should not have traffic lights or stop signs or speed limits because people will break the rules and the only people who will be diverted will be the law abiding people?'" ...

"Airsoft is fun (I guess, I’ve never owned any Airsoft guns), but what about when you get bored of shooting little plastic gubbins and yearn for steel instead? Hackaday, the blog that constantly amazes me with the ingenuity of a bored human mind, has a suggestion: turn your air-powered pellet chucker into a supercharged steel-slinging coilgun. I saw this posted earlier and it was just way too awesome not to share with all of you. Make the jump for a quick explanation of what a coilgun is and some video of the gizmo in action." ...
 

International Law Expert Chuck Norris Is (Shockingly) Wrong About UN Arms Treaty

... "Wednesday, Politico ran a column by Norris attacking the UN's as-yet-unfinished Arms Trade Treaty. The piece alleged that the Obama administration is trying to sneak in gun control schemes 'under the radar.' A key component of that, Norris wrote, could well be the UN Arms Trade Treaty."

"'The vast majority of UN diplomats,' Norris claimed, 'believe that an arms trade treaty must reach into your gun safe and mine. There is little question this treaty would require additional restrictions on our Second Amendment rights.'"

"There's one problem with that statement: it's about as accurate as a joke from the meme-friendly website, Chuck Norris Facts. " ...

"You have to give him credit, though. Most gun grabbers lie and deny that taking gun owners firearms away is their ultimate goal. Not Larry." ...

"'I didn't wanna die,' the driver told Fox59. 'I was thinking this guy was really about to shoot me.'"

"The suspect took off on foot with the money. As he was running, the driver turned the tables and took out his own handgun. He fired shots at suspect but doesn't believe he struck the suspect." ...
 

Texas Gun Dealer Sues Feds Over Reporting Requirement

"A new federal reporting requirement for firearms dealers in four border states, including Texas, intended to curb the flow of weapons into Mexico has prompted a veteran San Antonio gun dealer to file suit against the federal government."

"The [ATF] issued a rule last week requiring licensed firearms dealers to report to the agency any time two or more long rifles are sold to the same buyer within a five-day period. The move comes as the ATF continues to deal with the fallout from its controversial 'Operation Fast and Furious,' an investigation into gun trafficking in which federal agents let hundreds* of weapons fall into the hands of Mexican drug-cartel operatives." ...

He is against mountaintop removal, and puts the environment as one of his top three issues in his campaign.

"On Tuesday night I addressed the Martinsville City Council on their unlawful gun ban that covers their entire municipal building."

"Up until last year, they had their metal detectors only in the access points for their court-related areas. Then, at the request of the Sheriff, the judge declared the whole building a courthouse! The metal detectors were moved to the only public entrance, providing a complete gun ban."

"I started by telling City Council that VCDL prefers to work its way up the ladder to see if a problem can be solved amicably rather than resorting to a lawsuit right out of the box."

"I advised them that their ban on guns in the entire Municipal Building was unlawful under Virginia law and needed to be rescinded." ...
 

Distortion in the Courts - Judges display little respect for Second Amendment rights
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

... "While I would not argue that the Second Amendment precludes society from ever restricting arms in any circumstance – such as to inmates in prison or briefly while police sort out the good guys from the bad guys at an incident – I do believe that it places firearms in a very special and protected place under law; a place where any deprivation of the right should receive special scrutiny and careful consideration. But our judicial system seems to take the exact opposite view. In any legal issue firearms are typically the first thing taken away and the last thing returned – if they are ever returned at all." ...

Chicago provided a sweeping history of the 14th Amendment's roots in the anti-slavery movement—but that’s only because the 14th Amendment was specifically designed and ratified to counteract the predatory actions of the former Confederate states, who sought to deny the civil, political, and economic rights of black Americans and their white allies—including the right to keep and bear arms. ..." ...

"President Obama has nominated a law professor for a position on the 7th U.S. Court of Appeals. The professor believes that judges have the ability to create laws and that the Constitution 'governs no one.'" ...

"Nourse also believes there is no individual right to own firearms. Writing in a law review article, Nourse said the Supreme Court found 'new rights' in the Heller case. The Supreme Court ruled, in the Heller case that the second amendment guarantee of the 'right to bear arms' was an individual right." ...

Submitter's Note: Pretty gutsy of Nourse, since SCOTUS ruled 9 - 0 that the Second protects an individual right.

"Sgt. Matt Markham, in his report on the incident, said that Skinner was drunk and belligerent, ... the sergeant pulled him to the ground, with Skinner's head striking the street and knocking him unconscious."

"Skinner's version disputes the police reports. He said that Markham, nearly twice his weight, picked him up and body-slammed him, causing the head trauma. Police waited at least 15 minutes before calling an ambulance ... Toxicology tests at the hospital showed no drugs or alcohol in his system, the couple said." ...

"Attorney Chuck Michel who works with the NRA/CRPA Legal Action Project in California posted an article this evening about the Sunnyvale, California Planning Commission. The Planning Commission is seeking to have the Sunnyvale City Council adopt a new municipal ordinance which would put increased restrictions on the sale of firearms in Sunnyvale. The Commission is responding to unfounded complaints from some neighbors of a firearms dealer that opened in Sunnyvale in 2010. The complaints include that they weren't notified and that children walk by the store on their way to school as if just merely seeing guns will turn their kids into the next Klebold and Harris (of Columbine infamy)." ...
