Now, to borrow a phrase from John Wick, it looks like the Combat Commander is back, at an MSRP of 9– slightly less than the Lightweight Commander.As such, it joins the latest edition of the Colt Cobra and a new railgun model of the Delta Elite, announced last week.While North Carolina’s 1776 constitution limited the purpose of the right to bear arms to defending the state, for example (“…the people have a right to bear arms, for the defense of the state”), as did the Massachusetts constitution of 1780 (“The people have a right to keep and bear arms for the common defense”), the 17 constitutions of Pennsylvania and Vermont specified that “…the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the state.” Guns vs. C., hinged mainly on a careful parsing of the language of the amendment that reveals, Scalia argued, an intent on the part of the framers to protect an individual right completely independent of the militia clause.Interestingly, however, he went on to make the tangential case that, anyway, the framers understood “militia” to mean a “people’s militia” made up of private citizens whose right to bear arms could not be abrogated by their own government, thus providing a “safeguard against tyranny”: It was understood across the political spectrum that the right helped to secure the ideal of a citizen militia, which might be necessary to oppose an oppressive military force if the constitutional order broke down.The NY Sullivan Act intended to tip the advantage toward Irish criminals, away from Italian criminals, and far away from the lawful.Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.If you’ve landed on this page, odds are another mass shooting has occurred in the United States. Depending on how you define “mass shooting” (there’s a discussion of the various ways to do so here), as of 5 November 2017 there had been no fewer than 10 (according to magazine) and as many as 307 (according to the Gun Violence Archive) mass shootings in the U. Even for a nation painfully accustomed to grappling with gun violence, this was an immense loss.Yet among the outpourings of grief, the pangs of soul searching and regret, and the inevitable calls for tougher gun regulations, there was also this — a decades-old (1996 vintage, by our best estimate) recitation of the horrors of “gun control,” freshly re-shared for the occasion: A LITTLE GUN HISTORY In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.
You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information….
In the way of a brief history lesson, the Commander was introduced in 9mm for an Army pistol contract in 1949 aimed at providing a more effective replacement to the .32 ACP Model 1903 “General Officer’s Pistol.” It soon became popular on the civilian market and in 1971 a steel-framed (to differentiate it from the Lightweight Commander) Combat Commander went into production.
That 70 Series Colt remained in the stable until 1980 and, after a brief hiatus, was replaced by the 80 Series variant that remained in production in one form or another until 1998 but has sadly been missing from the lineup since then.
Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
