Three things to take away from this Amy Bishop article.

    Via POWIP: Gun in Ala. campus shooting bought 2 decades ago By DESIREE HUNTER (AP) – 15 hours ago HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The gun used to kill three people during a faculty meeting at an Alabama school was bought for the suspect’s husband two decades ago when he said he was having problems with a neighbor, an investigator testified Thursday. The investigator told a judge | Read More »

    Chipping Away at Our Freedoms and Offering Nothing in Return

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Western Washington is reeling at the deaths of six law enforcement officers in just under two months: Officer Timothy Brenton, Sergeant Mark Renninger, Officer Ronald Owens, Officer Tina Griswold, Officer Greg Richards, and earlier this week, Deputy Sheriff | Read More »

    Another tradition goes by the wayside…… What a shame. It’s wedding season in Yemen and traditionally, that’s meant three things: Music, dancing and joyously firing an array of pistols, assault rifles, rocket-launchers, anti-aircraft mortars and grenade launchers into the air to celebrate the occasion. But in the past few years, that last part has been nixed from the program. In 2007, the Yemeni government began implementing an ambitious disarmament and weapons-registration campaign in | Read More »

    A 2nd Amendment Litmus Test or Pledge?

    As conservatives we or similar-minded people/organizations have adopted some litmus tests for candidates, or at least some pledges that we’d like to see, in regard to some issues, and candidates either pledge their support or not.  While this isn’t a reasonable thing to do with regard to complex issues (for example,  “all of foreign policy”), it is a reasonable and worthwhile thing to do with | Read More »

    RINO Gov. Schwartzenegger signs ammunition registration law

    The Governator signed into law a bill in California (AB 962) which will require all purchasers of ammunition to submit their thumbprint and  personal information into a state database.  included in the definition of ammunition are clips and magazines!  For purposes of this subdivision, “ammunition” shall include, but not be limited to any bullet, cartridge, magazine, clip, speedloader, auto loader or projectile fired from a firearm | Read More »

    New Arizona Gun Law, and Leftie Stupidity

    Cross-posted from We Rush Daily The stupidity of the Left knows no bounds… AP reports a story entitled “Guns Allowed in Arizona Bars Starting Wednesday”… innocuous enough until you drill down into the article. “The new law has Shields and other bar owners and workers wondering: What’s going to happen when guns are allowed in an atmosphere filled with booze and people with impaired judgment? | Read More »

    Dan Boren (D-OK): ‘Left Wing’ In Congress Tries to Erode Gun Rights

    Democrats in Congress would have Americans believe that they have largely given up on their attempts to restrict the right of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms. Barack Obama tried to fudge questions on gun control during the campaign, but has nominated to the Supreme Court a judge whose radical view of the Second Amendment is that states and localities have the right to | Read More »

    HR 45 and Fedzilla – a fight we can win

    HR 45 is a bad bill on many levels.  The largest problem is that it is indicative of the lack of respect for state sovereignty.  The pending legislation regarding a national emissions standards bill is another example.  Requiring the automakers to manufacture vehicles that conform to a national standard is one thing.  Forcing states to spend money to enforce it on existing vehicles is entirely | Read More »

    Lautenberg: Never Waste A Good Tragedy

    Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) along with Senators Reed (D-RI) and Feinstein (D-CA)- all decidedly on the liberal side- recently yet again introduced legislation to close the alleged “gun show loophole.”  This photo-op came on the anniversary of the Columbine and Virginia Tech murders- two tragedies which gun control advocates regularly trot out in support of their proposals.  With the standard, “If only we had this | Read More »

    Speaker Pelosi wants to register your guns

    On “Good Morning America” last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared: “We don’t want to take their guns away. We want them registered.” Somehow, I don’t think America’s 80 million firearms owners feel reassured. People have, in fact, been buying guns and ammo at such a rapid pace since the election of President Obama that there is now an ammunition shortage in the U.S. Johnny | Read More »

    My Prophecy “[Senator John] Kerry called for a ban on the imports of assault rifles, such as the AK-47, into the United States. Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., opposed the idea.” Mark my word, as we see the far left tearing apart the free market system under the guise of protecting the American people, I see the 2nd Amendment under direct attack | Read More »

    We can keep our guns for now – getting ammo for them is another story

    We’ve seen stories in the past about ideas to serialize bullets as a backdoor way to drive up their cost. Now CT wants to microstamp guns to drive up their cost, but it relies on legislation. Now here’s another insidious step to dry up the supply of ammunition natiowide, except this one is now in place without needing to pass any pesky laws. Got that? | Read More »

    Confessions of a DailyKos Member

    I still consider myself a liberal. I still plan on mostly voting for Democrats (if you don’t believe me, read my diary on DailyKos: However, having spent a lot of time immersed in the home of the radical left, I realize perhaps I share more opinions with the people here than I ever would have thought: Second Amendment:  I read too many diaries on | Read More »

    Beware the Brady Rankings

    A few weeks ago, the Brady Campaign, an organization that advocates gun control legislation at the State and Federal levels, released their annual report card of state gun control laws.  According to their rankings, California ranks #1 as having the best gun control laws, while Kentucky, Oklahoma and Louisiana were tied as the worst.  While we can quibble with the objectivity of the criteria or | Read More »

    HR 45, Firearm licensing

    If someone has already posted on this, sorry. H.R.45 Title: To provide for the implementation of a system of licensing for purchasers of certain firearms and for a record of sale system for those firearms, and for other purposes. SEC. 3.
