"The Second Amendment Foundation today reminded the United Nations that 'if women have the right to be protected against violence, then they have the right to protect themselves against violence.'"

"So spoke SAF’s Director of Operations Julianne Versnel, whose remarks to the U.N. Programme of Action conference were unlike anything many delegates had ever heard before. The conference is seen as the first step toward rekindling discussions about an on-going process to continue development of a small arms and light weapons treaty, which earlier this summer collapsed when several nations opposed it." ...

"As a gun blogger I’ve got a pretty good idea of what arguments gun control advocates are using to further their disarmament agenda. Here’s one zooming to the top of the hit parade: 'The nation has turned into the Wild West,' northjersey.com's editorial board editorializes, inaccurately. 'It must stop,' they insist, unrealistically. 'Holding up the shield of the Second Amendment does not cut it. Yes, Americans have the right to keep and bear arms. And children have the right to attend school without worrying they’ll get killed. Pedestrians have the right to walk down a street without fearing for their lives. Moviegoers have the right to sit with strangers for two hours without thinking they’ll be mowed down.' Close but no cigar . . ." ...

"Here’s the inside dope on recent rumors suggesting that the U.S. government is stocking-up on ammo to prepare for civil insurrection, via Larry Keane, Senior Vice President of the National Shooting Sports Foundation:"

"'Rumors about the federal government purchasing large quantities of ammunition, possibly for use against the American populace in case of civil unrest, have made their inevitable journey from postings and blogs on various Internet sites two weeks ago to phone calls to conservative talk radio programs more recently. Because rumors are usually based on a kernel of truth that is misconstrued, exaggerated and then propagated, let’s be very clear: There is nothing out of the ordinary going on . . ." ...

"When a loser snapped and used a .45 to kill a former employer he’d been accused of stalking, and then died in a shootout with NYPD officers in front of the Empire State Building, the media soon piled the BS almost as high as the iconic building before which the incident took place. When it looked as if one man had shot nine or ten people, the mainstream media was ready with another anti-gun blitz … and with their embarrassment almost visible, backed off when it discovered the killer had shot a single victim, and the other victims had all sustained non-life-threatening wounds from fragments of police bullets." ...

Mayor Bloomberg and “Gun Violence”

"When a reporter asked New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg whether the police had acted appropriately by shooting an armed murder suspect, he angrily replied, 'Let me ask you this Miss, if somebody pointed a gun at you and you had a gun in your pocket, what would you do? I think that answers the question.' Bloomberg makes (indirectly) an important point. The phrase 'gun violence' gets tossed around quite a bit, but there’s a problem–the expression blurs the distinction between the use of a gun for self-defense and the use of a gun to commit a crime, such as theft, rape, and murder." ...

"When there’s gunpowder in the air because hundreds of rounds have rocketed downrange, and when the sun is beating down on you and your black gun and your instructor is commanding you to push those shots faster and faster, it gets intense. Some people might cringe. Some might be driven to compete more against others on the line. Some might quit because now the instructor is yelling. Eight of us stood our ground, wiped the sweat off our brows and crouched again to deliver center of mass shots to our paper targets. It was us against them – the imaginary bad guys, miscreants, in front of us and made of paper and wood."

"In writing this column, it is not my intention to resolve the debate of whether firearms help to reduce or increase the amount of violent crime ... Instead, it is a humble attempt to refocus the debate of Civilian Gun Ownership (CGO) back into perspective."

"An argument persists that the Second Amendment allows for the possession of firearms — not by the private citizen, but by the states in order to maintain a state militia. However, historical documents do not support this position. It is incontestable that the Bill of Rights was demanded by state delegates during the ratification of the Constitution in order to preserve individual rights. ..." ...

"Gun gurus tell their students to dry fire practice at home. They reckon it’s more important than range time. True! Once you’ve learned how to hit a target from a static position, presentation, mobility and strategy become vastly more important than grip, stance or trigger control (assuming you’ve got those wired). But dry fire practice isn’t about marksmanship or accuracy per se. Done right it’s a logical extension of the old adage 'train as you mean to fight.' In other words, dry fire means practicing what you’d do in a defensive gun use (DGU). And one of the things you MUST do is call the police . . ." ...

"The concealed carrier spotting exercise does help to keep me on my toes and alleviate some of the boredom while daughter is checking out the latest Lily Pulitzer flip flops at the mall. It’s also a helpful exercise to keep your powers of observation tuned up – and to learn from others mistakes. If you spot someone carrying, you can adapt your strategies to avoid that problem with your own personal routine. Or you can walk up to them and say 'nice gun!' Actually, on second thought, don’t do that either." ...

"The right's incoherent hatred of its caricature of government mixes uneasily with its worship of weapons that have virtually nothing to do with hunting or helping protect families from intruders. Their unfounded attacks on America's foundations are as offensive as their stockpile of weapons appears to be offensive. We used to call such efforts sedition – but now they are simply an audition for some GOP and Tea Party candidates."
