JPFO Alert: Brady Campaign's "Gun Control for Dummies" is Missing a Word

Today's JPFO Alert replies to the Brady Campaign's "Gun Control for Dummies" with a question: is there any other kind?

If "gun control" did not propose to make us safer by hindering our ability to defend ourselves, while simultaneously counting on laws to regulate the behavior of the lawless, it might have more appeal among intelligent people. But that is precisely what it proposes, and intelligent people aren't buying it.

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: Technological Advances Aid Home Gun Manufacture, Bypass "Gun Control"

The gun ban zealots often argue (speciously) that when the Second Amendment was drafted, the Founding Fathers could not have imagined advances in firearms technology. Today's JPFO Alert argues that it's the drafters of restrictive gun laws who fail to anticipate the technology that will render their precious laws irrelevant.

And now, a new Australian company promises to bring 3-D printing of metal objects to the home, starting at under $5,000.

JPFO Alert: New Jersey Considers Mandatory Gun "Buybacks"

Today's JPFO Alert calls the very idea of a "mandatory gun buyback" a lie.

If the government wants to "buy" your guns, tell them the price not in dollars, but in blood--and make it higher than they can afford.

Defense Distributed's 'Ghost Gunner' brings gun manufacturing to the masses

When millions of Americans, with neither the metalworking and gunsmithing skills to build firearms by hand, or the wealth to buy equipment sufficiently sophisticated (at the prices such equipment commanded until now) to do so through automation, can nevertheless produce effective fighting arms in the privacy of their homes, "universal background check" laws, "prohibited person" laws, "assault weapon" bans, etc. become meaningless. The gun ban zealots' worst nightmare--uncontrollable, utterly anonymous access to so-called "assault weapons" is upon us, spelling the death of the "government monopoly on force" so beloved of the gun ban jihadis.

That's a victory for humanity. [More]

Police chief sues to overturn will of the voters, make gun rights 'alienable'

One could of course argue that this portion of Amendment 5 would seem to be in direct contradiction of its purported purpose of declaring the right to keep and bear arms "unalienable" (given that it provides explicit language permitting "aliening" the right under certain circumstances)--and indeed one has made precisely that contention. That, however, is clearly not the Post-Dispatch's argument.

Dotson wants to use the power of government to overturn the overwhelmingly popular will of the people. That's kinda dangerous with an armed populace. [More]

Feinstein's lust for confiscation of 'assault weapons' unmitigated by time

But, as she revealed in a statement to ProPublica this month, she still wants a ban, still wants it to be permanent (no "sunset provision") and still wants it to be confiscatory [More]

JPFO Alert: Congressman Wants to Require Government Permission to Build or Print Guns

Today's JPFO Alert wonders if there is any way to trade in a real clunker of a Honda.

Back in July, Honda introduced H.R. 5344, a bill banning private citizens' purchase of body armor capable of stopping rifle rounds. He wants, in other words, to make gunfire more dangerous, because he believes "public safety" requires that the "authorities" can more easily kill the people. The Violence Policy Center, by the way, is also enthusiastically on board with that bill.

If someone comes up with a practical way of making effective body armor at home, we will undoubtedly see Rep. Honda spring into action again. An aspiring tyrant's work is never done.

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.

St. Louis 'open carry walk' will celebrate Amendment 5, raise awareness

Nor, of course, was refusing to move to the back of the bus for the faint of heart (a description never applied to Rosa Parks), or marching into Selma, or, for that matter, defending Lexington and Concord from the red coats. The intent here, of course, is not to put the planned Open Carry Walk on the same level as those historical events, but to note that very little of worth is accomplished without both risk and effort.

NBC's call to treat home invaders 'like royalty' even worse than first appears

And since "treat them like royalty" clearly means to Zeins and NBC that the home invaders should be given everything they want, one could easily be forgiven for coming to the conclusion that they believe that "royalty" should be treated as superiors. From that, one cannot help but wonder if they would prefer that we still were under British monarchic rule. [More]
