VPC: "Gun Dealer Plaintiff In NRA-Backed Lawsuit to Block Reporting of Multiple Assault Rifle Sales to ATF Offers Bulk Discounts On Rifles Targeted by the New Rule :: 08/10/2011

Arizona gun dealer that's asked a federal judge to tell the ATF to put their new long gun registry where the sun doesn't shine is offering discounts for customers buying multiple modern home defense black sporting rifles. The very type of "assault weapons" favored by Mexican drug cartels-unless we're talking about fully-automatic Bushmaster ARs that somehow manage to "seep" from the U.S.-sanctioned sales to the Mexican military and police to Los Zetas. As you can see, true story. And this is a problem for the Violence Policy Center 's gun grabbers because . . . "According to a December 13, 2010, Washington Post investigation, J&G was third in a list of gun dealers with the highest numbers of guns recovered in Mexico and traced back to the U.S." Oh THAT again . . .

Does gun control save lives? :: 08/09/2011

There are two basic crime scenes when it comes to gun violence in Canada. One involves weapons that are traceable - sometimes using the $1-billion long-gun registry that is likely to be scrapped by the Conservative government this fall, as promised. The other - far more common - involves guns that are not traceable because they are not registered, the registration number was erased or the guns used to kill are never found.

Does the NRA Support Gun Owners? :: 07/05/2011

You would think that the National Rifle Association, the NRA, would naturally back the Rand Paul amendment on exempting firearms records searches under the Patriot Act. But you would be wrong . The NRA criticized Senator Paul's amendment to exempt gun purchases from search provisions of the Patriot Act in e-mails to Congress while apparently sitting on important information showing the need for Paul's amendment. And it continues to defend its opposition to the Paul Amendment after The New American published information about that betrayal of Second Amendment principles. The information the NRA was apparently sitting on shows that the FBI and the federal government's Joint Terrorism Task Force have already begun trolling the records of law-abiding gun owners, using the excuse of terrorism surveillance.
