... "'Gun ownership serves basically five purposes, not just three,' documentary producer Jaeger told Oath keepers. 'The three everyone talks about are: target practice, hunting, and self-defense, but the other two almost never mentioned are: deterrent against tyranny and participation in the 'Militia of the several States.' Why are [these] almost never mentioned even though the Founders mention the Militia in four separate places in the U.S. Constitution? If the Founders mention deterrent and Militia, but few others mention them, is this not be a serious red flag?'" ...

"When I’m arguing with my mother about gun control (she, being a stereotypical Westchester county New York Democrat) there’s a normal progression of events. First, she hears something on the news ... and then asks me how I could possibly be opposed to such 'common sense' proposals. Naturally, I reply with a well thought out and rational argument about how taking guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens won’t stop criminals, would probably result in an increase in crime, and is both unconstitutional and immoral. Her natural fall-back position is to snark that 'no one is taking your guns' and refuses to hear any arguments to the contrary. But the fact is, whenever she says that, its a complete and total lie . . ." ...

In that article, Nick ran through the basics of selecting one and provided an overview of the steps you’ll have to go through to get one transferred to you. His post covered the process if you’re buying as an individual. Since then, we’ve had a few requests to cover the process using an NFA trust. And since I’ve just recently done just that, I’ll take this one . . ." ...

"'The dark and nonsensical fantasy that the United States government will one day transform itself into a jackbooted fascist state and seize American weaponry has long been peddled by the gun lobby to stir up donations to its cause,' today's New York Times editorial opines. 'It is the reason the federal background check system is not allowed to keep records of people who are approved to buy guns — advocates claimed that doing so would lead to a national gun registry and thus a road map for the storm troopers to know whose door to kick down in their rabid search for a revolver.' More likely a modern sporting rifle but we understand alliteration’s artistic allure. ..." ...

"Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation, was wrong in his implication that the 'true purpose' of the Second Amendment is protection against the United States government ('First, remember the Constitution,' Feb. 12)."

"The Second Amendment never was, is not now and never will be an invitation to treason. No matter how many times some say so, it's not intended to protect the people from 'tyrannical government.' Bearing arms against the United States government is treason. The founders would never have put that in the Bill of Rights." ...

... "Chief Michael Scott said Sgt. Ralph Miller was shot in the lower back while responding to a 911 call ..."

"Scott said a woman called 911 to report that her boyfriend had a loaded gun and that she feared for her life and the lives of her children. When officers arrived, Scott said, a man answered the door and refused to let them talk to the woman who called for help."

"'They could see the woman in the background holding a child and the sergeant told him we need to be able to see her and we need to see your hands. He started closing the door. Apparently one of the officers put his foot in the door and Sgt. Miller put his shoulder in the door to try to force that door open. That's when this discharge came about,' Scott said." ...

"According to TheDailyCaller.com, CO lawmakers are considering a bill which would make gun makers and sellers liable for any damages done by the weapons they sell."

"The bill is targeting so called 'assault weapons' which this particular bill is defining as any firearm other than a handgun, shotgun, bolt-action or lever-action rifle."

"At a press conference State Senate President John Morse said, 'You fire this weapon, you own that bullet, whatever it does …" ...

Submitter's Note: In case you were wondering if this liability will also apply to the state's highly trained and skilled LEOs, the answer is (of course) no.

"While nearly 100 companies have pledged to hold all purchasers of firearms and accessories to the standard of what’s available to everyday civilians, in what’s commonly known as the New York boycott, Armalite and now Magpul have taken an opposing stand. (See also The Police Loophole.) The good folks at Magpul have instead sided with Armalite against freedom and law-abiding American firearm owners – and what’s more, they’ve one-upped Armalite in their sales practices . . ." ...

"Let’s examine a few facts. While an assault-type firearm was used at Sandy Hook Elementary, that is an extremely rare occurrence."

"The number of mass killings involving assault-type weapons is so minuscule the effects of their previous ban could not be measured. However, the number of mass murderers on drugs is measurable and significant." ...

"In the Jan. 31 issue of the AIM West Milford [editor’s note: and the Feb. 1 edition of AIM Jefferson] there was a column by Tony Haryn under his 'For What It’s Worth' column. Mr. Haryn’s article was titled, 'Newtown, the NRA and common sense.'"

"I would take issue with some of his comments. He, like so many others, seems to think the Second Amendment is about hunting. It is not. It’s about freedom and liberty! Mind you, I’m a hunter myself and have been since age 10 and see nothing wrong with it. Hunting however, is not why the founders of our constitutional republic gave us a Bill of Rights." ...

"I think that it’s important to keep our country safe. But at the same time we need to give people like me whom enjoy using these guns but for the right reasons, the right to keep them." ...

"Milwaukee’s police chief testified on Capitol Hill Wednesday to call for a ban on assault rifles."

"'How many people have to get murdered in a mass murder for it to be enough?' said Ed Flynn, Milwaukee police chief. 'Now, I’ve been wrong time after time, but I’m a grandpa. I’ve got little kids at home. Is 20 babies enough to say that these implements should not be so easily distributed? That’s what we’re asking for. When was that gun bought?'" ...

"Flynn’s testimony has led to a war of words with the area’s other top law enforcement officer." ...
