Brady Campaign lawsuits against online ammo dealers aim to cripple 2nd Amendment

At the very least, this suit is intended to lay the groundwork for making it impossible to buy ammunition online. Shoot any "oddball" calibers, that are unlikely to be found at any local shops? You're out of luck . . . and out of ammo. And that is the whole idea. [More]

JPFO Alert: Anti-gun Group Wants to Ban Rifles "Too Accurate" for Civilians

Today's JPFO Alert remarks on anti-gunners' War on Bystanders.

But even CSGV, with their unceasing call for a "government monopoly on force," cannot match the National Gun Victims Action Council (NGVAC) for overwrought, fear mongering rhetoric. Again, in the same Oregon Herald quoted earlier, NGVAC CEO Elliot Fineman argued that private citizens must be limited by law to firearm technology that makes them miss at least 70% of the time . . .

JPFO Alert: ISIS Would Be Well Served by its pro-"Gun Control" Stance in Jihad against U.S

Today's JPFO Alert notes that domestic "gun control" advocates want us disarmed. So does ISIS. Interesting "friends," eh?

And if Americans were actually so foolish as to allow these attacks to be used to justify yet more oppressive gun laws, in the name of "safety," I would laugh and laugh, and thank my (unwitting?) allies of "Everytown for Gun Safety," "Americans for Responsible Solutions," the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the Brady Campaign, etc., . . . and then move in for the kill, which will have just become far easier, thanks to "gun control."

JPFO Alert: Gun Ban Zealots Offer Libertarians Choice: Police State or . . . Police State

Today's JPFO Alert notes the false "choice" offered by the gun ban jihadists.

That sounds rather a lot like extortion, and is also a false choice. The police work for us--they are our employees. We bought the armored vehicles from which they point guns at us, and the grenades they throw at our children. We don't have to sacrifice any of our rights to rein them in--we need only muster the will to tell them that if the job of "protecting and serving" a free people without indulging their Rambo fantasies is too scary for them, they'd best find another line of work.

JPFO Alert: "More Guns, Less Crime" May Be True, But Misses the Point

Today's JPFO Alert urges gun rights advocates to remember that our fight for liberty isn't about numbers.

Gun ban zealots try to bolster their arguments with statistics all the time--to the point of coming up with bogus stats, such as "A gun in the home is 43 times as likely to kill a family member as to be used in self-defense," or that, "Forty percent of gun sales proceed without a background check." They can afford to use numbers (even if they have to make them up), because their agenda is not troubled by collective punishment for individual crimes, or sacrificing the innocent "for the greater good."

We, on the other hand, must remain better than that.

And as always, if you haven't seen all the great JPFO Alerts written by David, Nicki, Claire, and Mama Liberty, you owe it to yourself to fix that.

Reid's position on 'assault weapons' for police sounds familiar

Both Reid and Horsford appear to be arguing that the fact that sometimes law enforcement agencies do indeed abuse the power of certain firearms should not mean that agencies that do not engage in such abuses be forced to get by with lesser guns. Does the same logic somehow not apply to the rest of us? [More]

JPFO Alert: David Frum Blames Militarization of Police on Guns in Hands of "the Policed"

Today's JPFO Alert notes that to ostensibly "conservative" David Frum, police state apologist extraordinaire, we the people of a supposedly free country are "the policed."

Actually, I cannot remember seeing any objections to police wearing body armor, and would only harbor such objections myself if efforts to ban possession of body armor by private citizens were to gain ground. More importantly, look at Frum's term for private citizens: "the policed." To Frum's way of thinking, apparently, that is how we the people are to be defined: as those who are kept in line by the government's hired muscle.
