Federal Court Hears Arguments On Maryland’s Gun Ban

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, will hear arguments on whether Maryland’s ban on so called “assault weapons” and standard capacity magazines, is constitutional. Maryland state gun prohibitionists, are arguing that banning a whole class of firearms, is constitutional. Did they forget about the Heller decision?

The law bans 45 assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Maryland lawmakers approved the sweeping legislation in 2013 in response to the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

“China’s Illegal Gun Problem”

The communist nation of China, has a habit of criticizing the U.S., for its human rights record and the Second Amendment. With its oppressive laws against gun ownership, China is still not so gun free, after all. Neither does the Chinese government have any credibility when it comes to human rights.

If you thought it was bad in the United States, in China, you can bet oppression is off of the charts.

Selling The Second Amendment quotes Reuters:

China’s police are cracking down on illegal guns and explosives ahead of the Lunar New Year festival …

No matter that they outlaw guns, the bad guys will always have them, to the detriment of everyone else.

Civil Rights And The Second Amendment

racist roots of gun controlOn Martin Luther King day, remember that the Second Amendment, was one of those rights denied to black citizens. Dr. King was denied a permit to carry, in 1956 after his home was bombed, and he received death threats. Gun control has racist origins.

Yet today, many have a flawed view of this fact, and purposely ignore the importance of the right to keep and bear arms, because it’s deemed acceptable to sacrifice constitutional rights for political expedience. When the ends justify the means under the guise of safety.

Handgun Caliber Doesn’t Matter?

.357 sig, .45 acp, 9mm which caliberDo you think handgun caliber matters much when you select which one you’ll use for self defense? If you think bigger is better you’d probably be right up to a point. In the most popular calibers, like 9mm and .45, you’ll likely find a better selection of choices in self defense ammo.

At the risk of being controversial, Tom McHale argues that handgun calibers like 9mm and .45, are not really all that different. I’d say choose carefully.

Gun Control And Lies Go Hand In Hand

Michael Bloomberg, Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Ballmer and Nick Hanauer financed I-594We see and hear from the gun control proponents, constantly, that their latest idea for “not one more,” is the panacea for gun crime in the United States. Despite no real solutions for the societal problems where such firearm background checks exist. When one can even argue that such mandates are a precursor for even more draconian gun control laws. As the point of sale becomes a spring board for future add-on gun control legislation. Because apparently, the last mandate in question, was not restrictive enough to get the job done.

Regardless of what it is this time around, from micro-stamping technology that doesn’t exist, to a “roster of approved handguns” with its fictional safety. What we are constantly fed, for the most part, are lies based on emotion. A deception that gun control proponents hope you gloss over while you allow them to “do something.”

So it’s not really a surprise, when a gun prohibitionist’s public statements, are dissected and shown for what they are. As Charles C. W. Cooke, does to Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News, on his use of the term “automatic weapon.”

…anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun – can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

-Josh Sugarmman the founder of Violence Policy Center

In Washington, I-594 promised increased safety from gun crime, and to “remove guns from the hands of domestic abusers.” It’s a good line but that’s mostly all it is. Proponents offered no discussion of the potential that it discourages or even prevents people from defending themselves. Should they be the intended victim of a violent crime and need a firearm.

Hunter education classes are likely impacted, because people don’t want to go to jail, for exercising their rights that were once legal. By the handling of firearms by students used for education.

The simple handing of guns between friends and family members trigger an illegal firearm transfer. A chargeable offence. And make no doubt, that the millions of dollars poured into the I-594 campaign, from billionaire donors such as Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates, are what got it passed. I-594 was not a grass roots effort.

PARA USA Regrets Providing Firearms For The Film “Taken 3″.

Since actor Liam Neeson opened his big mouth and criticized the Second Amendment, Para USA has come out with a public statement that it regrets providing firearms, to the movie Taken 3. That they won’t be doing so for any productions featuring Liam Neeson in the future.

The public could use more companies doing the same, since we so too much disdain, pointed in the direction of the Second Amendment from entertainers.

From PARA USA’s Facebook:

PARA USA regrets its decision to provide firearms for use in the film “Taken 3″. While the film itself is entertaining, comments made by its Irish-born star during press junkets reflect a cultural and factual ignorance that undermines support of the Second Amendment and American liberties. We will no longer provide firearms for use in films starring Liam Neeson and ask that our friends and partners in Hollywood refrain from associating our brand and products with his projects. Further, we encourage our partners and friends in the firearms industry to do the same.
