"Over the weekend, I submitted my resignation as a content contributor to and adviser for Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. Here's why:"

"Last week, I submitted my article on [name redacted]'s BamaCarry speech to KeepAndBearArms.com Newslinks, another website SAF bought. It never appeared."

It's no secret there is hostility between [name redacted] and Alan Gottlieb. And [name redacted] was apparently told by some readers that Alan has forbidden articles by or about him to appear on any properties he controls."

MarketsandMarkets: Gun Sales Set to Soar to $5.3b in 2020

"The post-Newtown gun sales boom was nothing less than spectacular. As existing gun owners hedged against fears of new civilian disarmament legislation and newbies joined the fold, gunmakers couldn’t make guns fast enough. Until they could. In 2014, demand slumped by 15 percent, sending firearm prices and margins downwards. It was still a good year, especially compared to, say, five years ago. All of which leaves gun sales . . . growing. Albeit at a slower rate. Until Hillary’s elected. I’m not sure if Dallas-based market researchers MarketsandMarkets put that happy prospect in their calculations, but no matter how they slice it they’re bullish on ballistics. Specifically . . ." ...

"Gun control advocates are fixated on the term 'a good guy with a gun.' It’s a swipe at the latter half of NRA jefe Wayne LaPierre’s famous post-Newtown press conference sound bite: 'The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.' As far as gun control advocates are concerned, there’s no such thing as a good guy with a gun (except police and other armed government agents, of course). Here’ a recent example . . ." ...

"What’s the dumbest idea of the season? Backed by the National Rifle Association, state legislators across the country have been pushing laws to let students carry concealed weapons on college campuses."

"What’s the lame excuse? Gun-toting young women would be armed to defend themselves in the event of sexual assaults."

"We shouldn’t be surprised by this. These are the same crackpots who argued in favor of more guns on campuses after the Virginia Tech shootings in 2007. And who held out the 2012 massacre of 26 students and educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut as an argument in favor of arming teachers. Of course, they’re cynically twisting the latest painful, high-profile issue into an argument for more guns." ...

"With the third anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin (2/26/12) coinciding with the exit from office of Attorney General Eric Holder, this is a good time to review the facts ... of the Trayvon Martin case. As a result of this case and others, Mr. Holder plans to argue that federal law should employ a lesser standard than is currently the practice in civil rights cases, so that worthy 'social justice' principles might be vindicated. The rule of law and outmoded concepts like 'proof beyond a reasonable doubt,' or producing actual evidence that fulfills the necessary elements of crimes must be changed or ignored so that 'white Hispanics' like George Zimmerman may be prosecuted regardless of the law and the facts . . ." ...

"The White House has said recently that banning 'armor piercing' ammunition like the wildly popular M855 round is 'common sense' and would make our police officers safer, which is a bold claim. Given the quality of journalism on display among the major networks these days, its no surprise that the facts of the matter have been muddled and obfuscated to the point where the details being presented bear little to no resemblance to the actual facts. Some hyperbole is expected, but in an age when the talking heads on TV start claiming that common rifles can shoot down airplanes and blow up railroads you know that fact checking isn’t high on the priority list. ..." ...
 

CCRKBA letter to ATF chief blasts proposed ammo ban

"Noting that the proposed ban of popular M855 ammunition for modern sport-utility rifles has raised concerns and created a fury among gun owners, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms late yesterday sent a letter to B. Todd Jones, director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, opposing the plan."

"Yesterday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest defended the administration proposal during a press briefing in which he said President Obama is convinced the ban will save the lives of police officers, the Washington Times reported. However, CCRKBA said in its letter that it could find no evidence that any police officer has ever been shot with a handgun loaded with this particular round." ...

"Larry Keane, General Counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, stating its position on FOX News on Friday, February 27, 2015, made an admirable case for stopping the rogue federal agency BATFE, in its outrageous attempt to ban ammunition to the American public, but like all mainstream firearms groups, there is a critical mistake in the proposals."

"The unelected bureaucrats at BATFE have no legitimate power to ban ammunition. Arguing fine points about one type of ammunition or another misses the constitutional reality of the subject. They fall into the subterfuge trap set by the Obama administration’s headlong disdain for the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law." ...

... "Let us list the fabrications told by the White House Press Secretary about M855 ammunition and AR-15 pistols, and then explain the magnitude of these clear and intentional falsehoods.
  • M855 is not 'armor-piercing bullet' by either military definition or by U.S. federal law definition in LEOPA (Law Enforcement Officers Protection Act of 1986).
  • M855 is actually common 'ball' ammunition that does less damage than almost any other 5.56 NATO or .223 Remington cartridge made.
  • AR-15 pistols are anything but 'easily concealed weapons.'" ...

"During the past few years, liberals in Congress (and executive branch agencies such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Homeland Security, led by the White House) have attempted to shove gun control regulations down the throat of the American people. Thankfully, most of these regulations, which abridge the rights of the American people, have failed."

"However, these rogue lawmakers have had more success with regulating another key aspect in the use of firearms — the manufacture and sale of bullets. These regulations have essentially the same effect, yet for some reason stir much less negative publicity." ...

"As we all heard in February, Obama's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) under B. Todd Jones has decided to put forth a notice that they are intending on banning the M855 AR-15 rounds known as 'green tips.' The move is completely unconstitutional as the states gave no authority to infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. This would include the ammunition used by any of those arms." ...

"The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives proposed new rules last month that would ban the manufacture or sale of bullets they define as 'armor piercing'; bullets that could potentially go through bullet proof vests. This would include 5.56 mm ammo, used in the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. This ammo is currently allowed for sporting purposes." ...

"The BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) is threatening to ban XM855 or SS109 5.56x45mm ammunition, aka'Green Tip Ammo' (popular ammo used in AR-15s and other common rifles). They claim that this ammo is 'armor piercing' and that it violates their ban on said ammo; it does not. Visit atf.gov or Google: armor piercing ammo restrictions, then research this type of ammo."

"The BATFE, or ATF as it is more commonly known, claims banning this ammunition will save the lives of law enforcement officers on the streets. The truth is, the armor most officers wear is level IIIA soft armor at best, which is only rated for pistol ammo. Center-fire rifle cartridges can easily penetrate it." ...

"With relatively minor resistance, House Bill 2320 moved to the state Senate, which has also passed similar legislation in recent years."

"A Ducey spokesman declined to comment Monday on the bill. Ducey has cast himself as a supporter of gun rights, though it is unclear whether he supports expanding them markedly.

"Proposals liberalizing gun laws in West Virginia have a tendency to move through the state Legislature faster than a speeding bullet."

"That’s why SB 347 cleared the state Senate 32-2 with bipartisan support and is now up for consideration in the House. The bill eliminates the current requirement of a law enforcement-approved permit to carry a concealed firearm." ...

"I would like to comment on the Another Voice column by Paul McQuillen regarding the SAFE Act. First, I challenge the data he uses to bolster his argument that 92 percent of the population approves of background checks and 67 percent approves of the SAFE Act, as do four out of five women. If the poll was taken in Manhattan, it might give those results, but polls taken upstate and nationally disagree."

"He also stated that only 18 percent of New York households have guns. That might hold true in New York City, but it obviously is not true upstate. Just comparing the numbers of pistol permit holders and hunting licenses would destroy that low number." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? [...] The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!" —Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago (Chapter 1 "Arrest")
