... "Of special pertinence to those interested in the civil contempt of Congress case against Attorney General Eric Holder, to be ruled on by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, are the arguments revolving around the invocation of executive privilege. But those wishing to understand how current debate has been shaped will want to not just focus on Fast and Furious, but to see the historical and legal oversight and separation of powers precedents." ...

"The following is chapter one of an upcoming book by Bruce Krafft:"

"I have often heard people complain about how 'confusing' the Second Amendment’s wording is. A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Part of that is due to its somewhat archaic construction and part of that comes from changes in language and the meaning of words over the decades. And unfortunately . . ." ...

"I’ve heard stories since the reelection of Barack Obama that sales of firearms and related accessories are through the roof. We’ve even posted one or two things about panic buying (and may have participated ourselves a bit). But now that I have actual hard proof, its time to make it official. Barack Obama is the best firearms salesman in the history of the world ever . . ." ...

"Since President Barack Obama won re-election just two weeks ago, there has been a run on gun purchases by Americans, mostly whites, all across the country.

... "Curiously, though, CSGV seems reluctant to discuss this particular 'insurrectionist.' Or perhaps that's not so curious after all. Horwitz, remember, is motivated to fight for the suppression of gun rights not as a way to 'stop gun violence,' but because the belief that we the people, and not the government, are the final guardians of our rights and liberty 'is a threat to the entire progressive movement':" ...

"It’s so seductively easy to talk yourself into not carrying a gun some days. Think about if for, oh, nine seconds or so and you’ll come up with any one of a dozen ready justifications for leaving your heater at home. It’s hot outside, the clothes I need to wear don’t cover my rig well, it’s uncomfortable, I might have to go into a bank/school/hospital/post office or some other designated free-fire zone, it’s heavy, I don’t like how it feels, it’s a pain in the ass. Yes, all of those can be and are sensible considerations…right up until the time when you actually do (God forbid) wish you had that mohaska on your hip. ..." ...

"How would you like a 1911 with a 5-inch barrel that can kick out a 230-grain slug at about 1,000 fps? Well, according to the testing we at Ballistics By The Inch have done that isn’t impossible without the right +P ammunition. Standard pressure .45 ammo is usually more on the order of 850 fps. But what about pushing a 275-grain slug at that same speed or just a tich faster?"

"Well, it’s a trick question because I’m not talking about a .45 1911. I’m talking about a .50 GI out of the Model 2 from Guncrafter Industries." ...

"There’s a little bit more to hunting than just finding a deer and shooting it. In order to get the best tasting meat you need to field dress that sucker ASAP, which means removing all the messy bits from the inside. You know, the ones that contain the bacteria and foul smelling stuff that makes for stinky and unhealthy meat. Following Dan’s kill, I helped Tyler field dress the buck in anticipation of its pending donation and we got it on film ..."

"Come on, how many times does it have to be said?

But while the two yoots brought knives, the motorist had…well, you guessed it. From cfnews13.com: 'The man, armed with a gun, shot at them and hit the other suspect, 24-year-old Justin Slivinski. Slivinski was taken to Florida Hospital Altamonte where he was pronounced dead.' So that’s one inmate the people of Florida won’t have to pay to support.

Harless was fired for threatening to execute concealed carry license holder William Bartlett during a traffic stop." ...

"Just as appalling, however, is the one-sided and biased reporting of Canton Repository staff writer Ed Balint who implied that Harless was fired only because of an internet firestorm conjured by the pro-gun community. Balint also made sure to include several quotes from the [FoP] attorney, Michael Piotrowski, but failed to include a single quote from a member of the pro-gun, or civil rights community." ...
