... "'Greg Weston, who was range master for the Sheriff’s Office during Manfre’s first term, told the News-Journal that Manfre was careless and dangerous with a firearm,' the report explains.

... "'If they choose to appeal, the D.C. attorney general’s office believes it has unique and powerful arguments to make about why a ban on carrying is necessary,' the Roll Call article continued, citing their contention that the District, as 'the seat of the federal government' should somehow get a pass on adherence to the Constitution!" ...

"'The new 'open carry' law strikes at the very foundations of civil society and the norms that hold our country together,' David Dillard-Wright writes at chronicle.augusta.com. 'Carrying a gun in public is itself already a threat to others, a sign that the person carrying that gun not only seeks to defend him or herself but also goes around looking for an excuse to use it. The politics of paranoia sow seeds of destruction that will harm innocent bystanders, prevent community building and increase suspicion of others.' And there you have it: the case against open carry by someone who couldn’t identify the foundations of our civil society if they read the Constitution a hundred times. Or, I’m thinking, once. ..." ...

"It’s no secret that there is an aggressive, never-ending effort in this country to destroy the Second Amendment."

"Gun control activists know that they will never be able to reach their goals as long as the Second Amendment stands intact. But they also know that they don’t have a prayer of getting the level of support they need to repeal the Second Amendment."

"Because of that, one of their favorite strategies for destroying your God-given right to self-defense is to convince the American people that the Second Amendment doesn’t mean what it very clearly says."

"Instead, gun control activists will insist that the Founders never intended to protect the right for you or me to own a gun. ..." ...

... "Hoping to provide an evidence-based framework towards approaching limitations on firearms and stricter laws governing the mentally ill, a consortium of international researchers, including co-author Vickie Mays of the University of California, Los Angeles, looked into the cause and after effects of these mass killings, as well as their perceptions in the media. Analyzing dozens of epidemiological studies into gun violence and its associations with mental illness, then comparing their results to media-driven perceptions of the public, researchers found a striking discord between reality and the opinions driving new laws." ...

"Dom Raso have never been one to shy away from a fight, and he comes out forcefully in defense of the Second Amendment rights of the blind in this video. Raso isn’t referring to the gray area of people with reduced vision, either: he’s discussing those who are 100% blind, without any vision at all."

"Addressing the issue of an Iowa sheriff who says he will deny concealed carry permits to all blind applicants and 'let a judge sort it out,' Raso argues:"

"Sometimes, the reach to the mag release on ye olde M&P is complicated. Either it is too small, or too far away, or too slick, or too plastic.

"James Brady, the White House press secretary who became a leading gun-control advocate after he and President Ronald Reagan were shot in 1981, once called members of Congress 'gutless' for pandering to the gun lobby. Such organizations as the National Rifle Association had complained that imposing a waiting period would 'inconvenience' legitimate gun-buyers." ...

... "What has been overlooked in the debate is suicide and a doctor’s ability to ask of suicidal patient if they have access to a gun. Why is this important? Because about half the people who kill themselves do so with a gun."

"Will a doctor asking a suicidal patient about access to a gun prevent a suicide? I don’t know. It might. What I do know is a doctor has as much right to 'interrogate' a patient about access to guns as texting while driving." ...

"After a month-long trip to see our family in Spain, I’m already missing speaking my mother tongue, eating jamón serrano, rambling through Roman aqueducts and cobblestone plazas. Yet, here is what I miss most: The lack of daily gun violence."

"Since my return to the States, every night on the local and national news there is a lead story of an individual either injured, killed or in limbo due to gun violence. In Madrid, the capital of Spain, there is no neighborhood I won’t drive or walk through in the late evening. Having lived in some of the biggest American cities – LA, Miami, and NYC – there are streets I hesitate strolling through on a sunny, Sunday church morning." ...

... "'We need to become a society whose reverence for the value of each life does not permit the carrying of devices to extinguish human life. We need to look at the Second Amendment and revise it to be consistent with the technologically complex society we have become. We need to register all guns like we register all motor vehicles. This won't happen overnight, if at all. So we at least we need to progress in the direction of making it happen, namely, imposing meaningful background checks on gun purchasers, banning assault weapons, and imposing stiff penalties for illegal purchase and sales of all guns. That would be a start – only a start." ...

"But liberals, hiding behind seemingly innocuous phrases such as 'common sense gun laws' still try to strip us of our Second Amendment freedoms and would rather have us, along with the elderly Holmes Beach woman, the Minnesota man and his mother, St. Louis teenager, elderly store clerk, Mussel Shoals children, the Pennsylvania doctor and his co-workers be disarmed and the victims of violent criminals than have our Second Amendment rights." ...

... "From time to time in American constitutional history, a revival of states’ rights sentiment has led to efforts to place state governments between citizens and the federal government, to thwart excessive use of national power. The idea, never accepted by the Supreme Court as valid, is based on the theory that the Constitution was actually a creature of the states, joining together in a compact to give some – but not all – power to a central government. The states, the theory goes, are the ultimate arbiters of how governing power should be distributed and exercised."

"Sometimes, these efforts are called 'nullification,' ... At other times, they have been called 'interposition,' ..." ...
