My deepest apologies for the sparse nature of content on this site over the past couple of weeks. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus do to multiple family moves but things seem to be slowing down a bit. I’m sitting on quite a bit of video and review fodder but just need to get the editing machine unpacked and set back up and we’ll be back in business.

Not that I owe you clowns an apology or anything. I do this stuff for free… Just sayin’
 

Defeating Obama

As you read this column, Election Day 2012 is imminent. Hard as it may be for some of you to believe, that are going to be a fairly large number of people who regularly read SGN who either considering voting for Obama, or perhaps not voting at all. Please: unless you are looking forward to America being in civil war or something like the terrifying future of the movie Mad Max, you must do your best to help defeat Obama.

Why, you are asking, would anyone who cares about guns vote for Obama? After the 2008 election, I received letters from readers asking what Obama had done to make any gun owner skeptical of him.

According to the Washington Times, Issa's latest committee report "divulged for the first time that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s office originally planned for him to go to Arizona to announce the results of the Fast and Furious investigation before Justice Department officials abruptly dropped the idea when guns from the operation showed up at the murder scene of the border agent."

This confirms that the operation was being treated as a media matter; the logical purpose of an AG press conference is not merely to announce arrests (that could be done in a press release) but to push the theme of "we need more gun laws because American guns are going to Mexican cartels."
 

Celebratory Gunfire Has Shocking Result

When I was coming up, NRA promulgated the “10 Commandments of Gun Safety.” They’ve since marked that down to about four, since it is thought kids can’t remember 10 things, and I might have trouble remembering all 10 myself.


Celebratory gunfire is a tradition in the Arab world, the Balkans and Mediterranean countries like Crete and Cyprus. It’s not at all unknown in immigrant communities in this country, especially in Southern California.

One Newton County parent is incensed that her 8-year-old son has been suspended pending a tribunal for accidentally bringing a BB gun to school and turning it over to administrators when he realized his mistake, but according to zero tolerance policy and law, how the situation is handled is largely out of the hands of Newton County school officials.

A Newton County Theme School third grader was suspended last Monday for accidentally bringing an unloaded pellet gun to school. Kristy Berry, the child's mother spoke to the Atlanta Journal Constitution telling them that her son did the right thing by turning in his weapon when he realized he had left it in his book bag after a weekend stay with his grandfather.

An academic adviser at the University of Colorado has posted a sign outside his office asking that students don't bring guns inside -- a request that university officials say is legally allowable as long as he doesn't withhold services from those with concealed-carry permits.

About a year ago, when CU's long-standing gun ban was being challenged in court, economics adviser Ken Bonetti posted a sign that stated absolutely no guns, concealed or otherwise, were allowed inside his office. Since then, the campus gun ban has been struck down by the state Supreme Court.

The top executive of the county that includes Chicago on Wednesday dropped a proposed tax on bullets but kept a plan to tax firearms to help defray healthcare expenses associated with the high rate of gun violence.

If approved by the board, the nation's third most populous county could be the first major U.S. metropolitan area to impose a tax as a form of gun control, according to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Under the plan, the County would impose a $25 tax on the purchase of firearms. The tax is expected to raise $600,000 in revenue in 2013.

In past presidential races, a $7.5-million media campaign could give an outside group like the National Rifle Assn. a significant profile.

But that sum doesn’t go nearly as far in this year’s contest: super PACs and advocacy groups have already reported spending more than $892 million on television ads and other forms of voter outreach – more than three times than at this point in the 2008 campaign, according to the latest tally by the Center for Responsive Politics.

When NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre stated in a February, 2009 address to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that "the guys with the guns make the rules," the "gun control" groups affected horrified outrage.

From Paul Helmke (then president of the Brady Campaign), to the Violence Policy Center's Josh Sugarmann (more than once), to Dennis "What People?" Henigan (another former Brady Campaigner, until he traded anti-gun activism for anti-smoking activism), to Josh Horwitz, of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the forcible citizen disarmament groups could scarcely have sounded more offended if LaPierre had claimed that "the guys who molest the most children make the rules."

She said 29 percent of guns used in crimes in Chicago were purchased legally in suburban Cook County.

That was the task presented to me by my new denim-clad friend. Who at this machine gun shoot would even ponder voting for Barack Hussein Obama, the man who everyone in his right-leaning mind believes will eradicate our God-given right to semi-automatic weapons in his second term?

Two weekends ago, I was at Knob Creek Gun Range, a weaponry Mecca in West Point, Kentucky, that holds a biannual event that is sort of like a comic book convention where everyone is cosplaying as someone from Call of Duty.

Someone stopped by searching for “should former felons have their gun rights restored.”

There are two sorts of gun rights, State and Federal. Federal laws supersede State laws, so Federal laws are the major concern. And according to Congress the answer is no. Congress has placed the bar very high for restoration of gun rights.
