Thought for the day

"The object of terrorism is terrorism. The object of oppression is oppression. The object of torture is torture. The object of murder is murder. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?" -- George Orwell, 1984

A CBC.ca report indicates an amendment has been added to Bill C-21, co-opting the handgun ban to prohibit hunting rifles as well.

CBC.ca notes: “The proposed changes to Bill C-21 were tacked on by Liberal MP Paul Chiang after it had passed second reading — drawing complaints from opposition MPs who accused the government of sneaking in changes that would expand the scope of prohibited weapons to include hunting rifles.”

On October 13, 2022, the Tennessee Court of Appeals released a decision that addresses whether tenants in a public housing project can be forced by government landlords to “waive” their 2nd Amendment rights. The decision came in the matter of Columbia Housing & Redevelopment Corp. v. Kinsley Braden, M2021-00329-COA-R3-CV.

Founded in 1871, the National Rifle Association is the oldest civil rights organization in America.

Many may ask, “just what does the term ‘civil rights’ mean?”

In Webster’s Dictionary, you will find it means: the nonpolitical rights of citizens; especially the rights of personal liberty under the U.S. Constitution.

President Joe Biden is stripping legally-owned guns from Americans with legally-recognized medical marijuana prescriptions, even as he moves to free prisoners jailed for marijuana possession.

Banks have been working on technology to "identify potential mass shooters" by tracking gun-related purchases and filing "Suspicious Activity Reports" with the Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

 

he Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is set to release its final rule on Braced firearms later this month. 

In Analyzing the proposed rule, which was released June 2021, it appears that ATF has intentionally designed its Factoring Criteria for Rifled Barrel Weapons with Accessories Commonly Referred to as "Stabilizing Braces" to effect a complete ban of every pistol-braced firearm currently on the market. 

A new study published in the American Journal of Public Health revealed the number of law-abiding Americans carrying a loaded handgun daily nearly doubled between 2015-19. 

The study titled "Trend in Loaded Handgun Carrying Among Adult Handgun Owners in the United States, 2015‒2019" found the number of law-abiding US adults carrying handguns nearly doubled from 9 million in 2015 to 16 million in 2019.

President Joe Biden hopes to push through a law that will essentially ban all assault weapons in America.

He cannot stand the fact that people have the right to defend themselves against evil powers that would seek to suppress freedom.

Fox News reported that Senator Chris Murphy from Connecticut blew Biden’s hopes of such a law out of the water by pointing out there are not enough votes to pass such a law.

The Democrat Governor of Colorado says that he does not endorse the assault weapons ban proposed by President Joe Biden.

Governor Jared Polis took a stand against his party on this one. However, he says he is willing to look closer at licensing requirements for high-powered weapons within the state. Thus, he takes things a step further than many Republicans would like, but at least he is not going as far as fully signing on to an assault weapons ban.

Although it is not the optimal tool for every job, a .22 pistol can get a lot done. In my neck of the woods, it is not uncommon at all to see fishermen, hikers, and hunters packing a .22 rimfire. Apparently, such guns also have their uses outside of snake-ridden south Louisiana. Smith & Wesson has been producing compact 22 double-action revolvers for over 100 years with the “kit gun” idea in mind.
