Your Gun Is In The Government's Sights! Rand Paul's Amendment to Protect the Privacy of Gun Owners under the Patriot Act was Defeated :: 08/16/2011

If you read the July 29th issue of Gun Owners of America , you can read all the bad news relating to gun ownership control and the assault gun owners are under. The latest shocking news involves so-called 'conservative' Republican Senators, including not-so-conservative, John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison, who voted against Senator Rand Paul's amendment (85-10) which would have exempted gun records-including 4473's (the form all purchasers fill out when they buy a firearm from a licensed dealer-from the blanket searches by the ATF under the Patriot Act. Without Paul's exemption, it is possible that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives could go to a secret FISA court and without any defense attorneys present, obtain an order to produce every 4473 in the country, ostensibly because a "terrorism investigation" requires it. If such an action were taken, the government would have a list of every FFL-related gun buyer in the country going back decades.

Research shows that concealed-carry laws don't increase crime :: 08/10/2011

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 . . .

NJ atty. offers $5K for proof of church gun 'buyback' legality :: 08/09/2011

I've written about so-called "gun buybacks " many times over the years. Basically I focus on how stupid, counterproductive and enabling of both crime and opportunities for negligence they are.

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.
