Jeff Clawson: The Second Amendment is Dead

"Salt Lake Tribune columnist Jeff Clawson has just had a stroke of brilliance regarding America’s gun problem. His solution: repeal the Second Amendment."

"The Second Amendment is dead — a victim of its own making. It has been killed over and over again. It’s been dying since the mass murders at the University of Texas Clock Tower, 101 California in San Francisco, McDonalds in San Diego, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Trolley Square, Fort Hood Army Base, and now Aurora, Colo. It only remains to be declared DOA and repealed — plain and simple . . ." ...

"The right to protect yourself and your family from attack by criminals is a basic human right. It is the basis behind castle doctrine laws."

"Unfortunately, that basic human right is trampled on with regularity in the country that provided us with the original castle doctrine - the United Kingdom of (formerly) Great Britain and Northern Ireland."

"Andy and Tracey Ferrie of Welby, near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, are finding this out the hard way. They have been arrested for shooting two (out of four) burglars who invaded their home early Sunday with their legally possessed shotgun." ...

... "Two issues ago, the front-page story in GunNews, 'Madigan’s List', provoked some strong responses from some unusual quarters. The story did not generate near the controversy that the headline and accompanying graphics did."

"The story detailed Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s decision that lists of FOID card holders should be released to the press, despite the objection of the Illinois State Police. The style of the headline evoked the movie 'Schindler’s List', a story about the Holocaust, and the graphic was of a cloth Star of David, worn by Jews under Nazi rule."

"Every group has a vocal cadre that demand compliance to their closely held beliefs as defined by their collective. In the AR-15 realm we have the mil-spec junkies. These folks have their short list of approved manufacturers and the moment a new company dares to come into existence they pounce to question every minute detail of the materials and processes used to manufacture the interloper’s new wares. Often times the criticisms leveled against the manufacturer’s products will be centered on compliance to military specifications. Ironically, most who cite the military specs for rifles such as the AR15/M16 have never read the actual specifications or even know where to find them. ..." ...

What if I told you that it’s very possible to accurately shoot most standard caliber pistols out to ranges as far as 100 yards? Think I’m nuts? Think I’ve sniffed a bit too much gun powder today? I won’t dispute either of the preceding allegations, but I will tell you that you can consistently hit a chest-sized steel plate at distances of 100 yards or more using your standard pistol. To be honest, I didn’t think it was possible myself, but then I decided to give the SIG Sauer Academy’s half day Long Range Pistol Shooting Class a try . . ." ...

"There’s something to be said for using teeny tiny bullets zipping along amazingly fast for taking out small game. Especially when your target is similarly zipping across the field in front of you, being able to hit that moving target is made much easier with faster rounds. Varmint hunters have known this for ages, and that knowledge has popularized calibers such as the .204 Ruger and .223 Remington (the lightweight versions) for small game. And that’s where Mossberg’s MVP comes into the picture . . ." ...

"As I sit here at my desk examining (read: ogling) the ACOG model TA31RCO-M150CP that Trijicon was kind enough to entrust me with, my first impression is…ruggedness. The kind I was previously unaware existed in rifle optics. While the glass on the scope clearly isn’t up to Zeiss standards ... it’s very bright for such a compact sight. I’d place the brightness on par with a 30mm Leupold Mark V. The field of view at 100 yards is a very generous 36.8 feet which provides a good balance of situational awareness and precision. The scope feels not only idiot- but also soldier- proof. Don’t get me wrong with that statement — soldiers aren’t dumb, but if there’s a surefire way to break something, they’re the ones who will figure it out . . ." ...

During down times at the range, he regaled the participants with nearly unimaginable real-life stories of his adventures. He also told stories about gunwriting and gunwriters, including one about a group of gunwriters being asked their opinion on the best gun for self-defense. Almost every one answered the 1911 in .45 ACP in a strong-side holster, but when asked what they were carrying at that very moment, all but one said a five-shot .38 Spl. in a pocket holster." ...

"A new company, Halix, has come out with a product that call the NSN for no stock needed. It is a padded attachment that goes on the buffer tube of an AR-15 pistol and allows the shooter to rest their chin on it. By doing this, it allows an AR pistol to be used like a short barreled rifle. I just noticed this yesterday on a post by Soldier Systems and on Facebook. It is getting a lot of comment with a good bit of that trending towards the negative."

But sometimes the wait can be frustrating and long, especially when you're hoping for an accessory, like a holster, that will make a gun instantly usable."

In addition to his day jobs as an accountant and best-selling author, he is also a firearms instructor, longtime shooter, and an active member of a number of internet gun forums. In short, his is an all-American success story." ...

"The series tells the tale of Owen Zastava Pitt who gets to throw his insufferable boss (who turns out to be a newly minted werewolf) out of a high window in the first few pages. Being a red-blooded and well-informed American, Owen was of course packing; but without silver bullets, he ultimately had to resort to main force and took a heck of a lot of damage while doing so. Thankfully, Owen is what we in the South call a ‘bigun’ and recovers from wounds that would have killed a lesser man."

Jones fixed his aim on the center of the man’s chest and fired a single shot. The Boone County Sheriff later announced the death of the intruder, Lloyd (Adam) Maxwell, 24, of Richmond, Ky." ...
