Even regular readers of The Shooter’s Log can’t read or respond to all of the comments, so we have started a new weekly feature that will recap a sampling of the most active, interesting, or on occasion, randomly selected comments from the previous weeks. Feel free to respond with your two cents at the bottom of this article or by clicking the story link and adding it directly to the discussion. NSSF Response to President Obama’s “Exaggerated Claim Based in No Real Statistics” Couldn’t have said it better myself Tom. I 100% completely agree with u. Thank you for your comment and I too join you and take the pledge. This is the only way we can win. Everybody has to come together and stand as one. We cannot, and I will not, do nothing and just let the government take away our God given right to protect ourselves and our loved ones. I am also an NRA member and think if anybody who is in favor of keeping our 2nd amendment needs to join if not already a member. This is a serious and huge problem that’s going on right now. The only way that we can beat it is if we all stand together United and not back down. This is OUR country. I am willing to fight for my rights and my families safety. I hope everybody else feels the same way because we all need to stand together as one through these tough times ahead.
NSSF Response to President Obama’s “Exaggerated Claim Based in No Real Statistics” It is a real shame that our President cannot bring himself to honor police and other first responders in the manner which is right and proper, but rather uses the occasion to politicize that which should have been an occasion for compassion and love for those who are so grievously injured.
Sen. Murphy Reveals Anti-Second Amendment “Slippery Slope” Strategy I think it’s high time that the firearms community expose the misleading term “background checks” the same way we have been trying to do away with the label “assault rifle.” As anyone that has bought a firearm since the Brady bill was signed into law should be aware a NICS phone call initiates a computer criminal records check, not the crawl up your bunghole investigation that the anti crowd is trying to insinuate. If the general public was aware of this reality, I wonder how many of them would greet the “universal background check” as some kind of shield against illegal acts committed with a firearm (note not “gun violence.”) We should not allow the anti crowd to not only frame the debate, but commandeer terms for their control freak goals.
Another Loss for the Second Amendment — Connecticut Ban Stands I don’t understand how any court can make a decision on aesthetics. Black guns with banana magazines are no different than a Ruger 10/22 or a Mossberg Plinkster. Yet one is banned and feared and the other is given to children for Christmas! SCOTUS could have lifted the ban until making a decision (when the court is full). The same is true with the Chicago gun ban by community. What scares me is this move by the court to make decisions based on public sentiment not the rule of law. That will prove more damaging and short sighted and effect the whole population.
