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]

JPFO Alert: More Americans Know a Defended Home is a Safer Home; "Gun Control" Advocates Upset

Today's JPFO Alert notes the welcome rise in the number of Americans who realize that defenselessness is dangerous.

The right to own guns is in no way predicated on how popular it is, nor even on how desirable the outcome is. Still, if more and more Americans are realizing that they, and only they, are responsible for their families' security, and know that the best way to provide that security is to have an effective means of stopping those who would do them harm, this is very good news indeed.

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.

New type of homemade ammo could make 3-D printed guns more practical, accessible

People like him and Goddard want us disarmed--want their beloved "government monopoly on force" protected even in the face of technology that promises home gun manufacture for the masses--and would be perfectly happy to see us maimed or killed for their sick agenda.

Crumling's innovation brings some more bad news to those pursuing that agenda, and that's very good news for those of us who believe liberty is worth fighting for. [More]

JPFO Alert: WA Private Sales Ban Referendum Shows Danger of Putting Rights Up for Vote

Today's JPFO Alert notes that putting fundamental human rights up for vote--even a vote you fully expect to win--is dangerous.

To endorse bestowing on voters the power to vote for fundamental rights, is to lend the veneer of legitimacy to the power of the people to vote against them. With scores of billions of dollars in the hands of people desperate to trample those rights, and with scores of millions of low-information voters prepared to vote for whatever the most prevalent and slickest TV ads tell them to, this experiment with "democracy" may just prove John Adams right.

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.

A little ingenuity renders Colorado 'high capacity' magazine ban toothless

Near the end of the segment (see accompanying video) Maass asks Mauser, who had just expressed his "disgust" at the successful efforts to make "a mockery of" the law (a law very worthy of mockery), "What do you do now?" Mauser sighed mournfully, hung his head, and eventually replied, "That's a good question."

Indeed it is, and its a question that the "gun control" zealots within the Colorado government appear to be utterly unable to answer. [More]
