Gun Rights

Proposed magazine limit is pointless feel-good legislation

Yesterday’s introduction of federal legislation to limit the capacity of ammunition magazines may have an impact on gun makes like the folks at Washington-based Olympic Arms — provided it passes, which industry odds-makers here at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show don’t believe has a prayer — but it likely would not prevent a determined nutball from carrying out mayhem, as detailed in yesterday's Seattle Times.

Sultan gun range welcome...somewhere else

It is the classic NIMBY response from residents along the Sultan Basin Road in Snohomish County, where a proposed gun range is now in the political and legal crosshairs.

The president of a nearby nudist resort, the Lake Bronson Club, tells the Seattle Times that his group is not opposed to a gun range, essentially so long as it is somewhere else.

Tucson Tragedy Prompts Renewed Calls For Gun Control

NRA-ILA GRASSROOTS ALERT Vol. 18, No. 2 01/14/11

Tucson Tragedy Prompts Renewed Calls For Gun Control
This week, the NRA and countless Americans offered prayers and condolences for those killed and wounded during the senseless assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

AZ aftermath: Seattle media versus one another, guns and conservatives

AZ aftermath: Seattle Times v. P-I v. conservatives and gun rights

While Seattle-area Liberals have joined the rush to blame conservatives and Constitutionally-affirmed gun rights for the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the murders of six other citizens, it appears no small amount of irony and hypocrisy have risen to the surface, and you can study it today on websites for the Seattle Times, Seattle PI.com, Sound Politics and Orbusmax.


From a Message in Blood...to dancing in it.

Outrage and exploitation seem to be running hand-in-hand, even here in the Pacific Northwest with perspectives on the Crosscut and Seattle P-I.com websites, in the wake of Saturday’s deplorable attempted assassination of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the “collateral” slayings of a federal judge, four other adults and a 9-year-old child.

GOA Petition Successful -- Constitution Read On House Floor

It's never been done before. The U.S. Constitution has NEVER been read on the floor of the Congress.

And to no one's surprise, the voting records of most Congressmen demonstrate they've never read the document for themselves!

So as you know, GOA initiated a campaign early last month to require the incoming Congress to read the Constitution. And our effort paid off yesterday when the House of Representatives read the Constitution on the floor of that chamber. This was quite a historic event.

Bellevue police shooting: What would YOU do?

".. Yesterday morning’s fatal shooting of a knife-wielding man by Bellevue police at a Chevron gas station has this morning’s Seattle Times and on-line Seattle PI.com reader feedback pages jammed with comments reacting to the incident, which may have been captured on the store’s security video...

".. Based on available information, it appears that the police acted properly; that is, in the vernacular, this probably was a “righteous shoot,” which this column prefers to call a “clean shoot.”


More Leftist Violence Exposes Dangers of Gun Free Zones

Left-wing atheist Clay Duke (check out his Facebook page) reminds us once again how desperately we need to get rid of zero tolerance policies and gun free school laws.

Duke was a loser who blamed rich people for having made him poor. His class warfare rhetoric sounds just like President Obama’s.

Today's reading of the Constitution: Who will walk out?

Which members of Washington State’s congressional delegation will be present, absent or get up and leave when the Constitution is recited as the House of Representatives convenes this morning?

This column will study the reactions from Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Seattle), Congressman Jay Inslee – who is likely to run for governor in 2012 – and Tacoma Rep. Norm Dicks, in particular. They’ve never seen a gun control law they didn’t like, so will they stick around for that part of the reading that covers the Second Amendment?
