The arrest of a man identified by Fox News as a bodyguard for anti-gun film director Michael Moore by New York Port Authority Police Wednesday evening proves that Moore is an elitist who thinks it is fine for him to have armed security, while he has endeavored to disarm other law-abiding Americans, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) said today.
Adding to the irony, said SAF Founder Alan M. Gottlieb, is the fact that bodyguard Patrick Burke was arrested for violating the kind of Draconian gun law that Moore and his extremist gun control contemporaries would support. (Read More...)

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) today hailed a report from the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel that concludes the Second Amendment "secures an individual right to keep and bear arms." (Read More...)

Calling it an ill-considered return visit of anti-gun bigotry, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) today blasted plans to put a handgun ban on the November 2005 ballot in San Francisco, California, reminding proponents of the measure that such a ban was declared illegal when first tried in 1982.
This issue was decided by the California courts more than 22 years ago, and the gun ban extremists lost, recalled SAF founder Alan M. Gottlieb. (Read More...)

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) is encouraging all Americans to celebrate Bill of Rights Day Wednesday, Dec. 15 by exercising their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Wednesday would be the perfect opportunity to do any number of things, from purchasing a firearm or ammunition, for yourself or as a gift, to applying for a concealed carry license if you have not yet done so, or visiting a gun range and practicing marksmanship and firearm safety, said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb.

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) today expressed astonishment that the City of Chicago would carry its anti-gun extremism to new heights by insulting every retired police officer in the country.
Weve long known that the Daley Administration hates law-abiding gun owners, said SAF Founder Alan Gottlieb. But now the city is fomenting hysteria over passage of a federal law that allows off-duty and retired police to legally carry concealed handguns anywhere in the country, provided they meet certain requirements.

Remarkable as it might seem, Dec. 15 frequently comes and goes unnoticed by most Americans, yet it is a date commemorating the document that has made this nation the benchmark against which all others are measured.
On that day in 1791 the Bill of Rights the first ten Amendments to the Constitution was ratified. (Read More...)

Lets get something straight right up front: Chasing down unarmed people and shooting them in the back probably does not meet the legal standard of self-defense in any jurisdiction of the United States.
That said, whether the slaying of six Wisconsin deer hunters and the wounding of two others on Nov. 21 was precipitated by shots fired at accused killer Chai Soua Vang, or whether he initiated the Sunday massacre unprovoked is up for the prosecutors, defense counsel and a jury to sort out.

Ruling unanimously Nov. 18 on two lawsuits that had been filed against the firearms industry one by the City of Chicago and Cook County, the other by five individual plaintiffs the Illinois Supreme Court not only tossed out both cases, but dealt a serious blow to the gun control crowd.
It cannot have been a worse month for hard core disciples of gun control extremism, in Illinois and elsewhere. (Read More...)

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) is hailing todays ruling by the Illinois Supreme Court to dismiss two lawsuits filed by the City of Chicago and other plaintiffs against gun manufacturers, distributors and suburban gun shops as a victory for common sense over political demagoguery.
In one case, the City of Chicago and Cook County were suing firearms manufacturers to recover the costs of dealing with violent crime. In the other case, the families of crime victims were suing the gun industry over the deaths of their loved ones, killed with illegal firearms. (Read More...)

Democrats didnt get it and the media still doesnt. A record turnout of gun owners has once again helped shape the political landscape, this time around not only retaining control of the White House, but also reinforcing the strength of the Republican majority in both houses of Congress.
Firearms owners, including millions of hunters, were far quicker to see through the façade John Kerry and his strategists tried to build, attempting to portray the Massachusetts liberal as pro-gun and pro-hunting when his 20-year voting record belied that image. (Read More...)
