"Anti-gun Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick - jailed for violating terms of his bond as he faces trial on eight felony counts - should resign before bringing any more disgrace to his office, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today."

"Kilpatrick is a prominent member of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition. The irony, said CCRKBA Legislative Affairs Director Joe Waldron, is that because the mayor is under indictment, he cannot possess a firearm." ...

"Having adopted the deceptive tactics suggested a few years ago by billionaire gun-hater Andrew McKelvey, gun and hunting ban lobbyist groups go to great lengths these days to deny that their ultimate goals are to stamp out all civilian ownership of firearms, or to eradicate all forms of hunting." ...

"One of the loudest voices of warning about the gun ban lobby's true intentions is the National Rifle Association. And now ... we may have even more reason to believe the NRA when they say groups like the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Freedom States Alliance, States United to Prevent Gun Violence and the Violence Policy Center are lying about their true goals:"

"They had a (wo)man on the inside." ...

"For the person in Straight Talk who says the U.S. Constitution does not give an individual the right to keep and bear arms:"

"The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does not establish the right to keep and bear arms. None of the provisions of the Constitution establish any 'natural' rights. They recognize such rights, but the repeal of such provisions would not end such rights. Such rights were considered by many of the framers as obvious or 'self-evident,' but they were immersed in the prevailing thought of the day, as expressed in the writings of Madison, Hamilton and others, which discussed 'natural rights' in some detail. ..." ...
 

When should a kid get an Airsoft gun (if ever)?

"My 11-year-old has been bugging me all summer to talk his mother into letting him buy an Airsoft gun (I am, of course, an assumed yes). When I was a kid I had a BB gun, as did most of my friends. We promised to be careful, and then we shot each other in the butt and accidentally put some holes in windows. But nobody lost an eye, and it seemed like just part of a normal childhood." ...

"The pro case is that letting him have the gun is an opportunity to teach serious gun safety, which will be an important lesson that will serve him well in later life. The con case is, well, everything from the aforementioned eye to encouraging more of a gun obsession than the Nerf guns have already inspired. ..." ...

"As I write this piece, I suspect analysts in law enforcement 'fusion centers' across the country are tracking the recent Internet brouhaha over Mike Vanderboegh's writing. Those analysts are trying ... to create an estimate ... as to the actual resistance probability and capability of America's gun owners."

"The governmental mandarins ... know full well ... violence works, especially when used against soft, scared targets."

"After all, they have employed it repeatedly themselves - 'demonstrations' ... of what could happen on a much wider scale if folks get too uppity." ...

"The Brady Bunch thinks discussion of such an eventuality is outrageous:"

"... armed revolt has been treated as a legitimate policy answer to popular gun control measures by one blogger after another in the gun community - rather than denounced as immoral or as street-corner gibberish..." ...

"Regardless of political opinions, the decision in District of Columbia v. Heller is a constitutional junkie's dream." ...

"It is a rare Supreme Court opinion that relies upon legal principles dating back to 1689. It is even more unusual to examine the intent of Stuart Kings in England."

"The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution has been litigated very little because everyone thought they understood what it meant until crimes using guns skyrocketed in the last 20 years, causing the political establishment to take a fresh look at the reach of the Second Amendment." ...

"Why won't the NRA speak? Can anyone compel it to respond to the Sapone story?"

"Senator Frank Lautenberg, a New Jersey Democrat, is the first in Congress to give it a try. On Thursday, he sent a letter to John Sigler, the president of the NRA:" ...

"It had seemed as if the landmark decision on the Second Amendment that the Supreme Court handed down earlier this year might, paradoxically, end up hurting the National Rifle Association. The ruling itself was a victory for anti-gun-control forces ... But in the process, the NRA's traditional scare tactic -- dire warnings about gun-grabbing liberals -- seemed to have been crippled, if not dealt a mortal blow."

"Well, if you are willing to credit the NRA's leaders with only one thing, give them this: They're resourceful. Faced with this dilemma, the organization came up with a simple solution. It -- pardon the pun -- stuck to its guns, facts be damned." ...

"It looks like the Brady Campaign finally got its wish: A Concealed Carry Permit holder has finally killed a law-enforcement officer!"

"It's been a long, but ever hopeful wait by Brady, but now they can finally, after more than 20 years, give a big 'I told you so!' to the legislators that passed Florida's concealed carry law ..."

"Brady is already tap-dancing on the grave of dead Customs Agent Donald J. Pettit."

"Of course all the facts in the case have not been released yet, but I do find at rather odd that Agent Pettit was said to be on duty, yet he had his daughter in the vehicle with him, and he appears to have gotten into a pissing match with another driver, James Patrick Wonder" ...

"Students for Concealed Carry on Campus held its first national meeting last friday. The group hopes to convince state legislatures to allow guns onto college campuses. Meanwhile, another group, Students for Gun Free Schools, founded in opposition to SCCC, is working to make sure this doesn't happen."

"Elilta Habtu joined Students for Gun Free Schools this spring. She was shot twice in the 2007 attack at Virginia Tech. The shooting has led her to become an activist for gun control."

"The Jones story tells us this spy was hired by the Assistant Executive Director of the Institute of Legislative Action, [NRA]. The ILA was then headed by James J. Baker. Baker is a partner in the 'Federalist Group', a wholly owned subsidiary of Ogilvy Government Relations. Baker is listed as Ogilvy’s 'Managing Director'."

"Richard Peddicord, a retired law enforcement agent from Marseilles, said he’s waited a long time for legislators to tackle a possible concealed carry law in Illinois — one of only two states without such legislation. 'I've waited 66 years to see this come to Illinois,' Peddicord said. The County Board will have the final say Thursday, Aug. 14, on whether county voters will have a chance to tell Illinois legislators — through an advisory referendum — whether the state should enact a concealed carry law. ..." ...

... "In 1993, Charleston's City Council took a bold step to halt this deadly practice in the state capital. Members limited pistol sales to just one per month per customer at Charleston gun stores. A Gazette poll at that time found 80 percent of residents favored the safety measure. Council also banned pistol-carrying on city property, except for police."

"Now, a gun-lover group wants City Council to revoke those 1993 laws. Good grief - that's absurd. Why would the gun-lovers need to buy more than 12 new pistols per year? Do they want dope dealers to resume their drugs-for-guns cycle here? Also, do they want to carry loaded pistols inside City Hall and the council chamber?" ...

"The Air National Guardsmen who operate Predator drones over Iraq via remote control, launching deadly missile attacks from the safety of Southern California 7,000 miles away, are suffering some of the same psychological stresses as their comrades on the battlefield."

"Working in air-conditioned trailers, Predator pilots observe the field of battle through a bank of video screens and kill enemy fighters with a few computer keystrokes. Then, after their shifts are over, they get to drive home and sleep in their own beds."

"But that whiplash transition is taking a toll on some of them mentally ..." ...

"... [J]urors were told by visiting Judge Richard Knepper during jury instructions that they could not consider the fact that she was unarmed because that was known only after the shooting." ...

"This is in response to Richard Amrhine's July 20 column ['Ruling has gun-control advocates reaching for the sky']."

"Mr. Amrhine pointed out the main interpretations of the Second Amendment, which is the right to bear arms."

"Primarily mentioned was that every citizen should have the right to own a gun. The second interpretation is that citizens should have the right to own a weapon for use in a government-regulated militia."

"I believe that in the case of Washington, D.C., the first interpretation should be applied."

"Those who support gun control are outraged over the court ruling for a number of reasons, but the main one is that the court has agreed to allow weapons." ...

"About a dozen residents have pledged their support to Capital Gun Owners, a new D.C.-based gun advocacy and education group headed by Northwest resident Amy McVey."

"'We're at a point where we're feeling our way here,' said Mrs. McVey, who was the first D.C. resident to register a handgun after the District's 32-year-old ban on handguns was struck down by the Supreme Court in June. 'I'm sure our mission will evolve as needed.'" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
