News links from www.Need2No.US:
few thoughts to ponder before I begin this News of Import. Universal background checks, a
provision currently being touted by gun control advocates and Obama are a
Trojan horse. The GOP, which is under attack at the moment from the
establishment types like Carl Rove and his like will
want to compromise, rather than embracing the proposal. We need to keep
up the pressure as criminals do not follow the law since they get a vast majority
of their guns off the street, and universal background checks will lead to a de
facto national gun registry that could lead to “universal confiscation” and,
ultimately, “universal extermination” of firearms. Remember, as a nation we
have had firearm background checks since 1993 when Bill Clinton signed the
first "assault weapons ban" into law, creating the National Instant
Background Check System (NICS). An extensive 2002 study by the Centers
for Disease Control examined firearms laws from all across the country and
concluded none were effective in thwarting violent criminals.

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all." --Ronald Reagan

Related commentary from Bob Owens:
They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers are running full-bore, but can’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It isn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that are sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, and
Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years is gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.
Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and the rest of the Statists have done more to promote gun ownership than the NRA ever did. Well done, Democrats!

"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy
