People often say dumb things in the heated passion of political debate. And in the new era of gun control regulations, inflaming emotions rather than engaging in a rational discussion has become all too common.
What follows is a list of 9 dumb quotes from gun-control proponents about the Second Amendment, gun violence, and guns that confirms, once again, that thinking before emoting is easier said than done.
1) "The Second Amendment only protects the people who want all the guns they can have. The rest of us, we've got no Second Amendment. What are we supposed to do?"
This comment was made by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-New York) in a March 12 interview with John Fugelsang on CurrentTV's "Viewpoint." Slaughter blamed the Second Amendment for violent crime, saying "Americans aren't safe anywhere" and gun control "has to be done" to protect citizens from themselves and their constitutionally guaranteed individual right to own a firearm.

California's largest gun owners' advocacy group and the state's association of firearms retailers have joined 17 other organizations, including the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles, in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the National Security Agency's phone record collection program.
The Calguns Foundation and the California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees, the statewide industry association of firearms manufacturers, dealers, collectors, training professionals and shooting ranges, are plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed in federal court on July 16 in San Francisco.

George Zimmerman's July 13 acquittal by a Florida jury on second-degree murder charges in the February 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin has spurred renewed calls to repeal 'Stand Your Ground' laws across the country -- even though Zimmerman's attorneys never used the Castle Doctrine extension as a defense during the trial.
The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns have vowed to use the verdict as grounds to repeal 'Stand Your Ground' in Florida and elsewhere nationwide.
Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' law was passed in 2005 in a 39-0 vote in the state Senate and 94-20 tally in the state House. It was the first self-defense law in the country that allowed people to defend themselves with force if they felt threatened in their home, business, car, or a place where they “have a legal right to be.” [ Read Full Post ]
Second Amendment advocacy groups and conservative organizations continue to distance themselves from "professional rabble-rouser" Adam Kokesh's plan for armed protestors to march on all state capitals on July 4 to demand "an orderly dissolution of the federal government."
On May 24, Kokesh issued a call for a "Final American Revolution" march on state capitals after cancelling a planned July 4 "Open Carry March" on Washington D.C. -- an event condemned as needlessly confrontational, dangerous, and ultimately self-defeating by the NRA, Gun Owners of America, Second Amendment Foundation, Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, the Tea Party and the Republican Party.
A former Marine corporal and Fallujah veteran of the Iraq War, Kokesh, 31, is a libertarian anti-war activist, podcaster, talk radio host, Republican Congressional candidate in New Mexico, and self-described "anarcho-capitalist." [ Read Full Post ]
New gun laws go into effect in at least four states on July 1, including in Mississippi, where state residents will have the right to openly carry firearms without a gun permit beginning Monday.
Guns are prohibited at schools, community colleges and universities. Landowners can ban people from bringing guns onto their property. County sheriff's can also bar guns from courthouses.
Indiana's new handgun law, which allows people to carry a handgun without a license inside their vehicles, goes into effect on Monday. The new law also allows people to carry a handgun without a license on their own property, if being carried to a shooting range for an instructional course, and during legal hunting seasons and times.

A bipartisan coalition of 45 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives has again introduced the "Protecting Lawful Transportation of Firearms Act," which seeks to standardize laws regarding the transport of firearms from one state to another.
The same bill was introduced last year with 51 cosponsors but never made it out of the House Judiciary Committee. This year's version, formally introduced by Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va.), Ted Poe (R-Texas), and Bill Owens (D-N.Y.) in March, has also been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.
Last week, Griffith said the committee needs to review the proposal so it can be presented to the House for a vote. [ Read Full Post ]
One Connecticut-based gunmaker announced this week that it is moving to South Carolina while another revealed it is also looking to relocate to the Palmetto State, signaling what some say is the beginning of the end of Connecticut's firearms manufacturing industry.
PTR Industries of Bristol confirmed on June 19 that it is moving to Aynor, S.C., near Myrtle Beach. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 24 to officially welcome the company, according to the Sun News of Myrtle Beach.
PTR will maintain an investment of $8 million and at least 145 employees, paid an average of $19.39 an hour, by December 2016 to benefit from a lease agreement it signed with Horry County, S.C. [ Read Full Post ]
