"Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) proponents have lied from the beginning.
And they persist in attempts to reassure people in countries that allow civilian firearm ownership that the ATT will not affect their national laws."

"We are told the Treaty will basically affect the illegal transfer of weapons, but not lawful civilian ownership."

"BullS#!t! That’s the Big Lie." ...

"Second Amendment defenders James and Laverne Lambert are pleased to debut their online handgun holster shop, http://www.HolsterIt.com. Responsible handgun owners are invited to browse the site for appropriate holsters, carrying cases, and digital and biometric safes."

"'I’ve had handguns for over 50 years,' said James. 'After taking a concealed carry course, and purchasing handguns for that purpose, I was dismayed that gun dealers did not have much in the way of quality holsters for the guns. We believe that every handgun owner should have a holster that fits the gun, the owner, and the purpose.'" ...

"Reasonable doubt is a powerful thing. In a court of law, reasonable doubt is enough to compel a jury to issue a not guilty verdict. In the court of public opinion, however, reasonable doubt is enough to lead to a predisposition of guilt."

"That is a powerful distinction. It's a distinction not lost on the television professionals at NBC News. That distinction, coupled with a determination to defend the division from a charge of repeatedly pushing a bias, and the ability to always have the last word is generally enough to deflect all but the most dedicated critics." ...

"For anyone looking for a reason as to why Chicagoans are shooting each other more often, how about this one: it’s now legal to own a handgun here."

"The Supreme Court issued its McDonald v. Chicago decision, which held that local governments do not have the right to write their own gun control laws, in 2010. The decision overturned the city’s handgun ban, and the police department began issuing permits later that year."

"Since the beginning of this year, 120 people have been murdered in Chicago. That’s a 60 percent increase over 2010 and 2011. ..." ...

"The shooting at Oikos University, far from demonstrating the need for stricter gun control, shows that current gun-control laws are far too restrictive and should be loosened."

"Despite a very prompt police response, they were unable to prevent seven people from being murdered and three other people from being shot."

"With shrinking police staffing, in the turbulent times we live in, police response time will only get longer." ...

"When the U.S. Supreme Court tossed out the District of Columbia’s handgun ban in 2008 ... it tossed back to state courts the future of that balancing act between the Second Amendment and efforts to regulate handgun possession."

"This week the Supreme Judicial Court weighed in on the case of a Fall River miscreant named Damian Gouse, who claimed his conviction of unlawful possession of a firearm 'violated his right under the Second Amendment ...'"

"With all due respect to hunters and target shooters and other Second Amendment fans, the aforementioned Mr. Gouse ... is exactly the kind of fellow Massachusetts guns laws were designed to help put behind bars if possible. ..." ...

"While the Oikos University shooting was tragic, we must look beyond this regarding 'gun laws.'"

"Almost daily, we hear of tragic murders, often of innocent children and adults. It's apparent most of those killings are committed by people having no business owning guns in the first place. Many guns are bought by fringe groups, or criminal elements, or people with mental issues." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Just FYI, the average number of children murdered with a firearm annually, from 1999 to 2009, is a hair over 182. The number of children murdered with something other than a firearm over that period is a hair over 797. I don't think that gun are the problem.

"Look what we have here."

"One of those magical signs that stops anyone with a gun from entering."

"The sign's great powers were set up to keep people from bringing guns into any place posting it - the anti-gunners' version of kryptonite."

"Criminals check your gun into your glove box before entering. And ... if your mask blocked your vision on the way in and you missed the sign, should the business owner point to it, the Bloomberg rules dictate you must put your gun away, apologize and quietly walk out ... ...

"Let's get serious now."

"The fact of the matter is four people were shot on April 1, inside this bar in Lima, Ohio, that posted this sign. No one died and by local media accounts, all will survive." ...

"In which Newt serves up meat so red it’s still mooing. I’m all for this idea, by the way — not because the treaty has a prayer of passing at the dictator hangout at Turtle Bay but because it’d be fascinating to see how many votes it got even from western nations. Anyone imagine the UK, say, signing onto some international version of the Second Amendment? Even if it passed, where else except the UK and a few other rule-of-law western countries would the right actually be observed? It’d be a parchment guarantee, as so many human rights are. ..." ...

"Facing the prospect of a less than enthusiastic crowd at Friday's National Rifle Association convention, Mitt Romney, who has a mixed record on gun issues, brought in his own secret weapon."

"'My sweetheart,' Romney told the audience, 'Ann Romney.'"

"Mitt Romney — who once vowed not to erode tough state gun laws in his home state — may never win the hearts and minds of gun owners in this campaign."

"But, given their disdain for the Democratic incumbent, he will likely win their votes, one reason Friday's speech was a pivot toward the general election." ...

"The NRA leadership has decided to throw its support behind Mitt Romney."

"But whenRomney was governor of Massachusetts, the NRA cursed him for passing strict gun control laws."

"The NRA now thinks Romney is a better gamble than President Obama, although Obama has done nothing to restrict private gun ownership. In fact, Obama has been a big disappointment to gun control advocates."

"Romney has been under pressure from gun owners since he announced in 1994: 'I don’t line up with the NRA.' And he wasn't kidding." ...

"Democrats now trying to do damage control over the smear launched by strategist Hilary Rosen against Ann Romney might have a very hard sell inside the America’s Center exhibit hall this weekend, where women from across the country ... are gathered for the [NRA]’s annual convention."

"Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney is here today, but it is his wife who is largely in the spotlight; a stay-at-home mom who was in Rosen’s bull’s eye the other day."

"Rosen launched her comment about how Mrs. Romney has 'never worked a day in her life' like a verbal projectile. Any of the thousands of NRA women strolling the aisles ... Saturday could tell her that once a bullet is fired, even a verbal one, it cannot be called back." ...

"Back on March 2, as this column reported, Romney picked up a key endorsement from Ted Nugent, the Motor City Madman, hunter and NRA board member."

"About 60 supporters of Matthew David Stewart met here Thursday and decried drug raids like the one that led to the shootout at his home." ...

"Stewart’s family called on police to use less violence and end searches that require kicking in doors and drawing guns."

"'The current method of breaching homes has proven dangerous,' said Erna Stewart, the suspect’s sister-in-law." ...

"Frankie Gallegos ... pointed out there were children living in homes next to the violent gun battle that also wounded Matthew Stewart and five other police officers." ...

Submitter's note: Interesting how when government bans things from harmless people (whether it be objects such as guns, or plants), harmless citizens as well as government's own enforcers, become victims of violence. Solution? Government must respect our right to possess things.

"Officially the National Rifle Association convention is not supposed to begin until Friday, at the America’s Center of St. Louis, Mo. But really the NRA convention began Thursday in a courtroom in Sanford, Fla., its keynote speech delivered by a man in a jail jumpsuit who barely said a word."

"His name is George Zimmerman and he is not just the face of the NRA in this country, he is the face of gun laws built on the fears and paranoia of the gun lovers in the NRA, the ones who have made a mockery of the Second Amendment. His name is George Zimmerman and in all the big ways he is the darling of the NRA, which wants the whole country to shoot first and ask questions later." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crime. — Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson
