Race-tailored tactics used to disparage black gun rights advocates

That black gun rights activists are treated differently than white ones over the same advocacy issue is racist, pure and simple. But then again, what do I know, being what an official representative of a national gun ban group dismissed as “a white gun nut”? By their roots you shall know them. And their motives haven’t changed.

Missouri legislature a bit unclear on meaning of 'unalienable'

Even so, that the right to keep and bear arms is "unalienable" has nothing to do with any vote on the matter, particularly when the measure being voted on also ensures that the state retains the power to make that right "alienable" for certain people.

Happy birthday to me.

I'm 62 today, but just right now I feel like 102. Will try to have some original material later.

"A great lesson in civics"?!? Camera-shy border thugs point guns at Boy Scouts.

Nice. Worse is what this boot-licking BSA official said later:
Charles Vonderheid with the Mid-Iowa Council Boy Scouts of America said Troop 11 learned a valuable lesson. “We want to make sure they follow the rules. A Scout is a good citizen. It would be a great lesson in civics for that young man and that troop,” he said.

Despicable Maryland Attorney General’s Office Lies in Support Of Assault Weapon Ban

“Assault weapons” are not a subclass of anything, but are instead a political creation of citizen disarmament advocate Josh Sugarmann which was supposed to confuse citizens about the differences between actual military firearms and normal sporting firearms that share similar appearances. They do not and cannot be readily converted to function as machine guns. Likewise, the phrase “unreasonably dangerous firearms” is a subjective matter of opinion, quite apart from objective fact.

Thousands of Gun Owners Stand and Say “I’m Larry Pratt”

“Remember the ‘I’m Spartacus!’ scene from the Kubrick movie?” asked Codrea. “In this case, I’m Larry Pratt. If the Capitol Police are going to investigate him, they’re going to have to investigate me, too, because I agree with everything he said about the Second Amendment being a last-resort protection against tyranny,” Codrea said.

Well, pardon us if we take you seriously.

Class action suit settlement a setback for Philly anti-gun efforts

The City of Philadelphia has agreed to pay $1.425 million and to make policy changes to settle a class action lawsuit regarding “posting and disclosing of what we alleged was confidential license to carry firearms (LTCF) information,” Prince Law Offices, P.C., announced Tuesday.

Well, call me crazy then.

Armed Mommy writing at Mad World News writes of the Left’s Latest Lunacy: “You Want More Than 10 Rounds to Kill US Soldiers.”
Here is the YouTube link. And here is the Stockholm syndrome poster boy Joe Scarborough's rant in print:
“I’m sorry, what deer hunter needs more than ten bullets in a clip? If you need more than ten in a clip, you need more than ten in a clip for one reason: you think the federal government’s coming to take your crops, y’know, to take your cows, or whatever and you want more than ten because you want to kill U.S. soldiers who come to your door. Why don’t we just say you’re a survivalist and that’s just stupid BS?”
As Armed Mommy points out:
So, if US Soldiers should receive an order to come onto my land and seize my private property, they would be violating that oath as well as my rights that are protected in the Constitution. In the event that the military is no longer working to defend our rights, but is violating them on behalf of a corrupt tyrannical administration, wouldn’t that be one definitive instance in which you would need your 2nd Amendment rights intact? Oh, but according to the logic of people like Mr. Scarborough using the 2nd Amendment to prevent tyranny is crazy talk though, right?
Well, call me crazy then, Joe.

Shaneen Allen, race and gun control

When a police agency is charged to seek out and prosecute people who are illegally possessing or transferring guns, they’re required to use their own discretion when it comes to what communities to target and what methods they’ll use to target them.

" It’s Time for Conservatives to Stop Defending Police." Ya think?

There is nothing conservative about government violating the rights of citizens.

Colorado "is at the center of the political universe this cycle."

But as Udall, Gardner, and politicos of all stripes in Colorado know, this is not the only national issue vying for voters’ attention in the state. In fact, nearly every issue being debated in congressional and state legislature races across the country has been pertinent in Colorado -- from regulations on guns and fracking to immigration to voting rights and gay marriage to the effects of marijuana legalization.

Missourians will vote on whether right to keep and bear arms is 'unalieanable'

All of this, of course, comes to naught if Missourians vote the measure down, which would provide a reminder of the dangers of holding fundamental human rights hostage to the popularity contest of an election. Still, a similar measure won voters' approval by overwhelming margins in Louisiana last fall. Hopefully, Missouri voters will choose as wisely.
