Newtown victims' families choose poorly with regard to 'entrusting' guns

In the end, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that Bushmaster's "entrustment" of AR-15s to private citizens enables vastly less carnage than turning them over to governments and their proxies.

JPFO Alert: A Truly Progressive Solution to Cops Shooting Black Men

Today's JPFO Alert notes that although this "progressive" writer might not have entirely thought his theory out, it's better than most "progressive" solutions.

Still, now he's advocating carrying guns to effect positive social and political change. That would indicate that he acknowledges that armed private citizens can push the government in directions that the unarmed cannot. That, in turn, is what the Second Amendment has always been about.

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.

JPFO Alert: "Progressive" Writer Blames Michael Brown Shooting on Inadequate "Gun Control"

Today's JPFO Alert notes that although the slippery slope of "gun control" always remains a threat, for some gun ban zealots, that process is too slow.

No. If the government's hired muscle is shooting too many people, too indiscriminately, the answer is not to voluntarily surrender the means of defending against them. If they are unnecessarily shooting people out of fear, it's well past time for them to stop shooting, out of a much greater fear of the consequences of such shootings. That greater fear can only be imposed by people equipped to make shooting citizens unnecessarily a terminally dangerous activity.

Anything less is surrender.

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.

JPFO Alert: Not All Anti-Gunners Willing to Wait for Slippery Slope

Today's JPFO Alert notes that although the slippery slope of "gun control" always remains a threat, for some gun ban zealots, that process is too slow.

One cannot help but wonder about Ensley's blustering " we'll take them." Does he propose to personally take part in the confiscations, or would his participation be limited to cheerleading from the sidelines. Personally, I strongly suspect the latter.

But I dearly hope I'm wrong. Molon labe, Ensley.

Does Florida outlaw a militia becoming 'well-regulated'?

Prosecutors told jurors that they didn't have to prove a specific plan, just show the group was doing the training for some sort of civil disorder.

And anti-gun groups argue that training for the potential eventuality of fighting against a tyrannical government constitutes that proof. If they have their way, Florida has indeed outlawed effective militia training--outlawed that which is necessary to the security of a free state. Just who are the domestic enemies, again?

JPFO Alert: In Washington and Elsewhere, Defiance is Proper Response to "Gun Control"

Today's JPFO Alert notes that the government simply doesn't have enough enforcers to compel us to submit to "gun control," if we only summon the will to defy it.

The movie "Defiance," about the Bielski brothers' desperate struggle to save themselves and hundreds of other Jews from the Nazis in Belorussia, is, despite its unfortunate choice of Daniel Craig for the leading role, an inspiring movie, with a tagline very applicable to this situation: "Freedom begins with an act of defiance." In Washington and everywhere else under the thumb of onerous "gun control" laws, it's time to get freedom started.

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.

Anti-gun, anti-hunting agendas both depend on lies

If Agni is any indication, when arguing with anti-rights activists, it is not sufficient to vet the quality of any sources they use to bolster their position, but their sources must also be checked simply to verify that they say what the activists claim they do. [More]

ATF retreating from expansion of multiple long gun sales reporting requirement?

This is, of course, very good news. Expect it, though, to be very temporary news, as well. [More]
