"I知 heading to Beantown for a couple of days, then on the UK to watch my eldest daughter graduate from college. I値l be disarmed throughout. I知 not happy about it. I consider a gun my best defense against a violent attack. If the excrement hits the rotating air circulation device while I知 away from my beloved Lone Star State, I値l do what I can to protect myself, my girlfriend, my children, yes even my first ex-wife. But I知 no ninja. And the UK痴 violent crime rate, the recent Tunisian terrorist attack and a general awareness of criminality fills me with no-firearm failure foreboding. And for what? Why does MA and the UK see fit to deny me my natural right to self-defense? Here are three reasons . . ." ...

... "Finally, here's something you should bear in mind when reading any count of right-wing terror attacks: These tallies tend to be a catch-all jumble of people with different ideologies. If you compare the manifesto of the man who murdered those churchgoers in Charleston last month to the manifesto of the man who flew a plane into a Texas IRS office a few years ago, you won't find much common ground. (In the latter case, I'm not sure the author even hails from the far right so much as the far end of the political long tail.) It's misleading to reify these incidents into a unified 'threat,' especially since the numbers involved are ultimately so low." ...

閃eeting in middle on guns depends upon where the 僧iddle is

"Yesterday longshot Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), appearing on CNN痴 'State of the Union,' was widely quoted on his contention that he could 'bring us to the middle' about gun rights versus gun control."

"But in the firearms community, that depends upon just where Sanders and self-appointed 'progressives' such as front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton think the 'middle' happens to be. For gun control proponents, including Clinton who was quoted by Politico telling a crowd at Dartmouth College last week that 'We have to take on the gun lobby one more time' the 'middle' is often somewhere between total registration, licensing and one-gun-a-month schemes, and a total ban on private gun ownership." ...

"Texas-based Whataburger clarified last week it would prefer their customers not openly carry firearms, much to the delight of gun control advocates."

"... In a statement released July 2, Whataburger President and CEO Preston Atkinson said the privately-owned chain long ago established a policy against open carry but chose to explain the reasons behind its decision."

"'We致e had many customers and employees tell us they池e uncomfortable being around someone with a visible firearm who is not a member of law enforcement, and as a business, we have to listen and value that feedback in the same way we value yours,' said Atkinson, who is an avowed hunter and concealed carry permit holder. ..." ...

"The national focus of the recent shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. may have shifted from gun control to racism and the Confederate flag, but the question remains as to what sort of policies would keep firearms from dangerous people."

"Daniel Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, believes he has an answer: permit-to-purchase laws. A June study published by the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research released five days prior to the murders of nine African American parishioners in Charleston 膨onnected a 1995 Connecticut law requiring a permit in order to purchase a handgun with a 40 percent reduction in the state痴 firearm homicide rate. ..." ...

"Investing in the gun industry could be an interesting proposition, but it all depends on timing. Regardless of your position on guns, the industry can be profitable in the face of certain news events. Still, it痴 a high risk investment play, and probably not one that is well-suited to being part of a long-term buy-and-hold strategy."

"... Does the fact that a major gun manufacturer has filed for bankruptcy protection indicate a fundamental downward shift the entire industry? Or is something else happening?" ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Something else: Blowing off consumers and placing all your hopes on gov't contracts is the "high risk investment play" that isn't "well-suited to being part of a long-term ... strategy"

"[The AME shooter] bought the gun legally. He was a law-abiding citizen who legally bought a gun, killed nine people during Bible study, and the millions of people who claim to love both Jesus and the Second Amendment sit quietly. Can the Jesus and Second Amendment lovers out there suggest a solution? Should churches hire armed guards? I can handle racists they池e morons. But when morons legally acquire a Glock, it痴 too late." ...

Submitter's Note: Actually, Dan, you first trwo statements are lies. The AME murderer was facing felony drug charges making him a prohibited person. So no matter how many times you repeat the lies, the truth remains. The shooter was a drug-dealer who violated another law when he obtained a gun.

ent. And while each year, we celebrate our new-found liberty and freedom with fireworks and barbecues one family in North Carolina is very much on edge about defending theirs. Tower climbing is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. It involves servicing cell phone and transmission towers all cross the nation with little advance warning and working at heights that would make most men quit. Many of these towers are located in remote regions and sketchy areas. When Brian Fletcher mobilized his men to head up to New Jersey, he did what any law abiding gun owner in North Carolina would do when heading into unknown territory he brought his legally owned pistol . . ." ...

"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) once said that regardless of legal status, 'north and south in this hemisphere we are all Americans. Based on that absurd statement, it stands to reason that Nancy Pelosi would be the Grand Diva of the sanctuary city that gave 45-year-old illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez asylum from deportation." ...

"Thus far, not one woman has 'died on the floor' because of Republican policy. However, what has happened is that in Pelosi痴 very own Democrat-controlled sanctuary city, on a warm summer evening, a young woman perished on the sidewalk after being shot by an undocumented alien who found refuge under the wings of Nancy Pelosi-approved lax immigration policy." ...

"Outrage has erupted in the wake of last weeks slaying of a woman in San Francisco as reports spread that the man accused in that killing is a recidivist illegal alien who picked the city because of its 'sanctuary' policy, and even last night Fox News commentator Bill O坦eilly launched a tirade against city officials during his 'Talking Points' memo ..."

"So far, nobody has blamed 'weak gun laws' for the murder of Kathryn Steinle at Pier 14 last week. They dare not, because California has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, and the account that suspect Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez scheduled for arraignment today found the pistol he allegedly used, wrapped in a shirt, seems incredulous." ...

"It痴 now legal for visitors to enter the Kansas Capitol carrying a concealed firearm without a permit."

"Concealed carry became legal in the Capitol last year. A person could take a gun in if he or she presented a permit to the Kansas Highway Patrol officers who provide security at the entrance."

"This year, the Legislature passed a bill lifting the requirement that a person get a permit to carry a concealed firearm."

"That law, which went into effect July 1, means a person does not need to go through a background check or training in order to carry a concealed gun on the sidewalk or other public spaces, including the Capitol." ...

"Yesterday, Democrat Governor Maggie Hassan vetoed New Hampshire bill SB116 which would have removed the licensing requirement for concealed carry. New Hampshire currently permits permitless open carry, but if you want to carry concealed, you must submit an application to your local CLEO (or Town Selectman if your town is too small for its own police force). SB116 had passed the New Hampshire Senate 14-9 in February on a strict party line vote Republicans in favor, Statists Democrats opposed. It had gone on to the House in April where it had passed 212-150. The house vote was more mixed with some Republicans voting against the bill and a few Democrats in favor of it . . ." ...

On the eve of its final vote, Hassan met with members of Moms Demand Action and pledged to veto the measure if it reached her desk." ...

"The nearly four-minute video was recorded on a phone in the boy's hand. It doesn't appear the officer had any idea the teen was recording the incident." ...
