NRA call for Holder to be fired a waste of political capital

... "In fairness, you should read the case LaPierre makes. I did, and frankly, it does not bring me any closer to his position. In fact, reading skillfully crafted marketing claims like 'When NRA first began our campaign to fire Eric Holder we were one of just a few voices in the wilderness' makes my jaw drop at the sheer, amazing chutzpah of it. I guess, yeah, this campaign is their baby, but somehow, LaPierre in camel hair rags eating locusts and honey, was not the first thought in my mind back when there really were voices in the wilderness, who knew they were on to something huge and dangerous, and who were doing everything in their power to:" ...

"In a letter to the Seattle Times on Wednesday, Washington CeaseFire President Ralph Fascitelli pushed the gun prohibition agenda as a response to two recent shooting incidents in south King County, while taking the time to call the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation an 'extremist group' and imply that it is a lobbying organization."

"It’s hard to argue with freep.com commentator arpad’s assessment of the paper’s editorial contortions. Dueling views on concealed guns, caution is still best policy attempts to reconcile the irreconcilable: the paper’s own report that Michigan’s concealed carry laws didn’t result in a bloodbath with the freep’s virulent anti-gun stance. 'While the law has not demonstrably made Michigan more dangerous, neither has it conclusively made it safer.' You shouldn’t be able to freely exercise your constitutional right to bear arms unless it demonstrably decreases communal crime stats? Wow. Tough room. ..." ...

"The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence (formerly Handgun Control, Inc.) has for several months been touring a new documentary film around the country. Living for 32 stars Colin Goddard, a handsome and clean cut young man—a recent graduate of Virginia Polytechnic University—who was shot four times by [a]murderous degenerate ... in April of 2007 in an event known in popular culture as the 'Virginia Tech Massacre.' Fortunately Mr. Goddard survived and appears to have recovered well from his injuries: 32 other students and faculty members died.

"A controversial U.N. proposed treaty aimed at regulating guns worldwide has been shrouded by confusion and misinformation."

"Known informally as the 'Small Arms Treaty,' its detractors have charged the proposed agreement with secretly trying to take guns out of the hands of Americans and circumventing the 2nd Amendment."

"While that is unlikely, a working draft proposal obtained by FoxNews.com contains language that some gun advocates say could have a real impact on American gun makers." ...

"There’s something about a ridiculously huge things that makes people giggle. The first time I fired a .50 BMG rifle I couldn’t stop giggling for a good half hour. .338 Lapua magnum is another one of those huge calibers that long range shooters love to use and the noise it puts out is remarkable, almost giggle worthy in its own right. In order to tone down the harsh noise of 'large bore' rifle rounds, Advanced Armament Corp. designed the Titan SS. And then they made the mistake of letting me try it out."

"As a preface, I just wanted to emphasize that this is not a 'full' review of this product. ..." ...

If you’ve been seeking a concise introduction to the central debate in American constitutional theory, this is the book for you." ...

"The elite media are at it again. They're trying to downplay the Operation Fast and Furious scandal that has rocked the Obama administration, and they're using the scandal to push the same tired calls for more gun control laws."

"The Washington Post, for example, which has largely ignored the scandal, ran a front page story recently, but made sure to quote anonymous Obama administration officials who praised the gunrunning strategy and claimed it was 'unfair' for Congress to investigate. And the newspaper's recent editorial quoted an ATF agent who believes that we need more gun laws, but ignored Congressional testimony of other agents who said all the gun laws we need are already on the books." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. --JOHN F. KENNEDY
