... "Attacks by roving flocks of wild turkeys are on the increase around suburban Boston--AP" ...

"... Boston is now a place where traditions have been betrayed. Its current overlords have succeeded in disarming the whole people in a way that General Gage could never have conceived possible."

"So successful have these rulers been that the city that gave us Sam Adams and Paul Revere is now a city under siege, and this is fittingly ironic if you think about it, by wild turkeys. So helpless and hapless are Boston's modern-day patriots, they can do little except retreat from the aggressive gobblers, escape, hole up and plead for rescue from the very authorities that enforce public impotence." ...

"Mike Bloomberg is on a mission to take away everyone’s guns. New York City’s billionaire mayor has bankrolled a coalition of municipal chiefs from coast to coast who tirelessly lobby for new laws restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners. The irony is that many in his coalition of pedophiles, embezzlers, wife beaters, cheaters and violent thugs are no longer eligible to legally own a gun." ...

"Reader Don writes:
I really enjoy reading your reviews and you actually inspired me to try a 3 gun competition at my local range. Even after negotiating through my California bullet button and 10 round mags on my AR, I still have a blast and plan to compete again this month. At the competition, each paper target required two shots. One thing that was obvious is that many guys were able to get that second shot off much faster than I was. Initially I attributed to me having iron (actually plastic magpul) sights on my AR while most of them had red dots. After talking to the other shooters and and them observing them shooting, it looks like the muzzle breaks make a big difference as well (my AR has the stock A2 flash hider). ..." ...

"This review originally appeared at the Jewish Marksmanship blog and is reprinted here with permission"

"I recently finished reading Shooters: Myths and Realities of America’s Gun Cultures by Abigail A. Kohn. In the book’s first chapter, Kohn describes her methodology: 'In the fall of 1997 . . . I set out to conduct an anthropological study of gun enthusiasm. To collect data, I used the traditional anthropological method of participant observation, which basically entails joining the designated group in question, making friends with its members, observing and participating in community events, and engaging in group activities with the community . . ." ...

"In the immediate aftermath of a particularly grisly presidential election season - one that saw red and blue states bloodied and battered in the process - you’ll be glad to hear Hollywood thinks they’ve found a potent healing balm. They’ve determined what this country really needs to restore our faith in one another is a good ol’ jingo party beat-down flick, even if it’s in the form of a remake of Red Dawn, a John Milius piece of claptrap from 1984."

"The basic premise concerns an invasion of a foreign army into the stately Washington city of Spokane, and the group of young people who escape and raise havoc for the invading army with a ragtag guerrilla force known as the 'Wolverines.'" ...

"She and her 3-year-old son were alone in the house, and she feared the man might harm her or her child, she told deputies. She got her .22-caliber pistol out and chambered a round."

"The man came back and got the locked outer door to the foyer of the house open, and started to get the locked entry door open as well, she told deputies. When she saw the knob turning, she flung the door open, pointed the gun at him and fired, she told deputies." ...

"Sometimes I want to take gun control advocates by their proverbial lapels and shake them (metaphorically speaking). 'It’s a gun people! It’s only a gun!' An invention that’s over a thousand years old. A method of personal defense (and yes, offense) that was fully democratized by Samuel Colt in the 1840′s. You’d think that we’d all be comfortable with guns by now. But no; the struggle to protect our firearms-enabled right to self-defense continues. ..."

"Recently, Judge Andrew Napolitano gave a dim prognostication of what could happen to the rights of the American people if Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg would fall to sickness or old age in the next four years. He was afraid that Obama might replace her with a progressive (a communist) who would, in turn, do much damage to the Second Amendment and other rights that God has given to the American people."

"The Bill of Rights was the “thou shalt nots” to the government. Judges do not have the right to usurp the Constitution by gutting the Second Amendment (or any other amendment) through their opinion." ...

"The so-called Firearm Owners' Privacy Act, backed largely by the National Rifle Association, was passed last year by the Legislature and signed into law by the governor. The law made it a crime for physicians to ask patients and their families about guns in the home with penalties that included potential loss of medical license and fines of up to $10,000." ...

So I’ll say this much before the stat-laden info on concealed carry crime stats after the jump [via sfgate.com]: anyone who thinks that Americans exercising their Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms are more dangerous than the general population is meshuga.

"... You said, 'These people love the Constitution.' They love the Second Amendment and the Tenth Amendment. They’re the only two amendments these people even know. I’m sure none of them has ever even read the Constitution, or you would know that there is no constitutional right to succeeded from the union." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Actually I'm pretty fond of the First and Fourth amendments too (freedom of speech, religion, assembly, press, search & seizure in case you were wondering).

Come to think of it I like the Fifth amendment too (grand jury, double jeopardy, self-incrimination and the takings clause).

Of course speedy trials with juries and assistance of counsel (6th amendment) are good too.

Heck, I like 'em all!

"This question was fueled by the unconstitutional City of Cincinnati Ordinance that is still on the books in Cincinnati, Ohio, which caused a national retailer of firearms magazines, to refuse to ship legally purchased magazines to a customer in Cincinnati, Ohio."

"So that there is no confusion related to Ohio Law on the subject of 'magazine capacity,' I have provided the following analysis." ...
