... "Since its original adoption, there have been constant efforts to expand, enhance and improve the $2 billion dollar system. Every time there is a high-profile murder, Congress, the president and media outlets raise the call for expanding NICS background checks, adding more categories of people to the prohibited list and other 'improvements' to the system." ...

"Another sensational murder, another clarion call from the leftist gun-grabbers. Extremists are so predictable."

"The clarion call, though, is built on a myth, a myth that somehow the United States is a dangerous place and that guns are the main reason for it."

"The truth is that the United States is one of the safest countries in the world."

"While the United States has the largest number of guns per capita, it has a surprisingly low murder rate compared to the rest of the world. It is not in the top 10. It is not in the top 25. It is not in the top 50."

"It is not even in the top 100." ...

... "For the individual rights view of the Second Amendment, the question is easy to answer, but for the states’ rights interpretation 'must mean–if it is to mean anything at all—-that a federal action that invades a state’s protected interests can be challenged in court, and that it can be struck down where it is not justified by highly compelling circumstances,' they write. 'This, of course, leaves open two important questions. ...'"

"What makes the states’ rights idea of the Second Amendment difficult to implement, they write, is that too often its defenders have failed to provide a logically and constitutionally consistent defense of their interpretation." ...

... "We should be absolutely clear about what Delaney is arguing here: He is a) agreeing with Jefferson that 'laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind,' b) contending that 'progress' suggests that the individual right to keep and bear arms is now counterproductive, and c) concluding that it is time therefore to make a 'change in law and constitution' — in other words, to repeal the Second Amendment. ... they are not speaking in a vacuum but reflecting the views of a small but vocal portion of the American population. And they mean it."

"Two days ago, according to FBI crime statistics, approximately 38 murders took place in the U.S. Most of these murders were completed with a gun between two or more people who knew one another."

"But people are only talking about two of them — the deaths of TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward by Vester Flanagan (aka Bryce Williams). Flanagan was a disgruntled former worker at the local TV station where the three of them briefly worked [together] ..."

... "The 20th century philosopher Hannah Arendt maintained that there was a connection between the 'inability to think' and morality. Upon observing Adolph Eichmann during his trial, she was stunned by two facts: The first was that Eichmann, in spite of being responsible for great evil, wasn’t particularly demonic or wicked at all, and, secondly, he was incapable of thinking beyond the stock phrases, clichés, and conventionalities available to him."

"In other words, Eichmann was not unlike the vast majority of human beings."

"Yet this 'curious, but quite authentic, inability to think' accounts for much evil in the world. The reason for this is not difficult to grasp. Morality requires judgments about good and evil ..." ...

"I won’t name the troubled man who just got 12 life sentences for shooting people at a theater in Colorado ... I can write about these people without making them more famous."

"It’s time for the rest of the media to follow suit, and quit pretending that we’re just doing our jobs. We’re not. We’re turning mass shooters into superstars."

"Not everyone who reads this site is a fan of Fox News. I get that. Fox’s 'Interrupter-in-Chief',' for example, is decidedly squidgy on gun rights. While Billious Bill O’Reilly may sit astride Fox like a cantankerous colossus, there’s plenty of firearms-freedom loving commentators down at the sharp end. Check out this clip of Dana Loesch giving Nomiki Konst what for. Ann Coulter takes no prisoners, gun rights wise. But the endlessly sardonic Greg Gutfeld is the best – least strident yet most passionate – of the bunch.

"'Our first-quarter results exceeded our expectations for sales and net income in both our firearms and accessories divisions,' CEO James Debney said.

"With an average of more than one mass shooting per day, one might think the country would awaken from its stupor. But the violence has become background noise.

"How many firearms are lost or destroyed in the United States? Is the number of guns in the U.S. increasing or decreasing? The current estimate of the private stock of firearms in the United States is about 363 million (16 million were added in 2013). That number was calculated by the cumulative addition of domestic manufacture plus imports minus exports. This does not count guns shipped to the U.S. military. The figures are rounded to the nearest million. Firearms manufactured before 1899 are not included. The starting figure in 1945 is 47 million . . ." ...

Breaking news. A manhunt. A suicide. Politicians calling for 'action.' Others reminding us not to politicize the terrible deaths. It’s a one-act tragedy we’ve all seen. Playing now in Virginia. Yesterday in Texas. The day before that, it was California. It’s an old and repetitive story, and it’s easy to ignore."

"But today, we are all talking about this American murder. This time, the performance was different. It was broadcast live. There was a Facebook post. The victim was white and young and pretty. She was ambitious and funny. ..." ...

"Now Andy Parker, whose daughter Alison could have been anyone’s daughter last week, speaks with more anger and more clarity about guns than any politician running for President. Alison Parker’s father does this even as this country continues to die a little bit more, one gun death at a time."

"So Alison Parker’s father, talking to the country from a place in his heart raw with grief, will be the latest parent to find out what it is like to go up against the permanent government of guns in America, and against his own government, one too cowardly to do enough about background checks that aren’t tough enough and gaping gun-show loopholes that are so often big enough and wide enough that 16-wheelers can drive through them with ease." ...

"While the entire nation was horrified – including millions of law-abiding gun owners – at the on-air murders of Parker and cameraman Adam Ward on Wednesday during a live interview, Second Amendment activists are preparing for a new gun control battle. Alleged gunman Vester Lee Flanagan, who used the on-air name of Bryce Williams, legally bought the gun he apparently used, according to ABC News, which noted that he had 'no known criminal record.'" ...

"The common refrain from the Obama Administration is that if we had simply implemented 'common sense' gun laws then some of these 'gun violence tragedies' would not have occurred. That’s the same logic they are using to present their latest demand for increased restrictions on the civil liberties of law abiding Americans, pointing to the on-air shooting of two reporters as proof positive that we need to 'do something' to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. There’s just one small problem: the proposed laws would have done exactly nothing to stop that shooting. And on Friday, the Obama Administration admitted it." ...

"In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday on 'State of the Union,' the Vermont senator touted his career 'D-' rating from the [NRA]."

"Sanders also played up his differences on policy issues with Hillary Clinton and hit national Democrats for a debate calendar he said is too restrictive during the interview."

"All around us in this country, innocent lives are being taken – for the most part with the illegal, cruel and thoughtless use of firearms. Today our right to bear firearms is guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Regionally and locally, other controls/options are in effect. In Colorado, to my knowledge, it’s OK to carry an exposed gun on your hip in many public areas but this probably makes the viewer uneasy and so is not prevalent. A most helpful and perhaps overdue contribution to crime reduction and personal safety improvement, in my opinion, is the concealed-carry law of Colorado. ..." ...

"It’s clear the country has lost perspective in the discussion about gun safety when even after the most gut-punch of wake-up calls, such as the murder of 20 children at an elementary school, or the latest burst of senseless gun violence, which last week claimed two innocent lives in Virginia, the most innocuous reforms become instant non-starters."

"Expanding mandatory background checks, already required for gun purchases made through federally licensed firearm dealers, to private sales would cut off one avenue by which the unstable or criminal-minded obtain weapons, and it would do so without placing an undue burden on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens." ...
