Um, No

“It’s debatable whether even the most stringent gun-control measures would prevent mass shootings, and it’s doubtful that those measures would survive the Roberts Court’s scrutiny. But time and time again, these proposals reveal a troubling window into the mindset of the gun-rights activists who oppose them. That, in turn, only makes the case for enacting such measures much stronger. If the main reason you need an AR-15 is to murder civil servants and elected officials, you shouldn’t have it in the first place.”

Well no, that’s not quite accurate.  We don’t want to own AR-15s “to murder civil servants and elected officials”, we need them to hold off government agents when they arrive at our door to disarm us — in clear violation of the Constitution (which, lest we forget, said gummint agents swore to uphold as part of their office-taking oath).

And by “hold off” I don’t necessarily mean “kill them” (it’s not murder  if they attack you first, BTW, no matter what un-Constitutional law they hide behind);  “holding off” also means making them a little more fearful of the consequences of their actions, and a little more reluctant to be statist bullies

WATCH: Armed intruders scatter when homeowner opens fire – WND

It’s another case of a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun — this time, it’s actually four bad guys with guns — and it’s all caught on camera. Security video has been released showing four armed intruders breaking into a residence at the Country-Living Estates Mobile Home Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky, last Wednesday night just before midnight.

When seconds count, police are only minutes away…

Pelosi threat: Democrats could declare national emergency to enact gun control

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said President Trump’s plan to use a national emergency declaration to unilaterally provide federal funding for a border wall would set a precedent Republicans may come to regret.

Democrats, she said, could use it later to enact their own priorities, such as increasing gun control

And that would cause the national emergency as my guns would be ‘weapons free’ and ‘shoot on sight.’

Democrats are enemies of the Constitution and the U. S. of A.

Short Circuit: A Roundup of Recent Federal Court Decisions

Unlawful alien, caught possessing a firearm, is charged with violating a federal law that categorically bars unlawful aliens from possessing firearms. Defense: That law violates the Second Amendment. Ninth Circuit: We’re not sure whether the Second Amendment applies to unlawful aliens in the first place, but even if it does, this law passes muster. It’s sufficiently tailored to the government’s crime-control interests since unlawful aliens are subject to removal, are often hard to trace, and “have already shown they are unable or unwilling to conform their conduct to the laws of this country.”

Did Hell freeze over? The Ninth Circus got one right!
