... "'What I am specifically interested in about this whistleblower bill is any unintended consequences,' Gun Rights Examiner replied to the insider source who forwarded the link to the GAP post. 'Is this intended to keep misdeeds 'all in the family,' so going outside to journalists will now be less likely?'"

"'What effects will that have on information being suppressed so the public never finds out about it? What would have happened had this been in effect for the Fast and Furious guys? And what is the likely impact on future Clean Up ATF [whistleblower website] dialogue?' the source was asked." ...
 

Peter Tilem: NY Firearms Law Really Is That Bad

"Yesterday we posted a story about an Empire State state probation officer at the center of a swirling controversy about New York state firearms law. Officer Kelly Miazga got into hot water for instructing her two pre-teen sons on gun safety with a hands-on demo. We pointed out that the Empire State prohibits its citizens from touching—yes touching—a firearm without a license to do so. Some of our readers figured it couldn’t really be as bad as all that. So we asked noted New York criminal defense attorney and firearms law wiz Peter Tilem [above] to give us the full scoop on the crazy train of rights abrogation surrounding this storm in a teacup . . ." ...

"I used to dream that someday I would make a fortune, retire from whatever business occasioned the fortune and endow what I would call the Second Amendment Litigation Trust.

"After the 2008 election, gun sales went ballistic. The number of background checks conducted in November of that year dwarfed all previous counts. Gun owners expected Mr. Obama to take away their firearms. But despite all of the hype, Mr. Obama was largely silent on gun ownership rights during his first term. Over the course of his latest campaign he promoted his back-burner stance as good faith proof that he had no intentions of restricting gun ownership. 'I'm not gonna take away your guns,' he said."

"In the very last presidential debate, however, the president tipped his hand, alluding to his plans in regards to curbing the freedoms described in the Second Amendment. ..." ...

... "In fact, the top 10 record gun sales days have occurred since Barack Obama's election in 2008, and gun ownership has skyrocketed over the last four years. According to a worldwide survey conducted the year before Obama's election, though the United States had only 5% of the world's population, Americans owned 50% of the world's guns. Of course, unlike virtually every other nation, Americans are ensured the incontrovertible right to arm themselves."

In fact, they would be like bows and arrows in today's conflicts."

"There is an expressed sentiment in the United States that no one has the right to own a weapon. Gun abolitionists like Obama ask: 'Why would anyone want to own a gun today? We don't think it is necessary in today's society.'" ...

"AirForce airguns have become popular for pest control use by government agencies, commercial users and individuals. Airports, contract agents for U.S. Fish & Wildlife, and various local law enforcement and animal control agencies employ them to dispatch unwanted animals without the noise, liability and potential property damage concerns associated with firearms. Also, U.S. forces are reportedly using AirForce airguns to eliminate rodents in and around bases in Afghanistan. Because these airguns can be regulated for range and target type, they are potentially less prone to ricochet and over penetration than even a rimfire. ..." ...

And with that many handguns in circulation, there’s an obviously insatiable demand for spare magazines and replacement parts. Naturally, Glock offers an abundance of spare mags for sale in various sizes, but now there’s another option that’s only half the price.

Quite why they decided to design and manufacture an on-board laser for North American Arms' Black Widow and Mini Master Pistols is beyond me. Because they can? Money?

This correspondent has been charged by CSGV with 'treason,' and with being a 'traitor,' far more times than is practical to count. Interestingly (and amusingly), when pressed to provide a single example of the 'treason' crime they so cavalierly toss around, they decline."

"Despite an elbow injury (nothing to do with drinking) Olympian Sarah Scherer finished 15th in London in smallbore (.22 caliber) competition. She and seven other Olympians are set to participate in the 2012 Winter Airgun Championships. [Press release after the jump.] So I guess we can say that airguns aren’t as dorky as they used to be. In fact, our industry contacts tell us that Stoeger airguns are selling like, uh, guns. And why not? Some of them are damn good varmint rifles (to a point). And it’s a whole lot easier to set up an airgun range in your basement or backyard than anything involving gunpowder. So how about it? Do you own an airgun? Would you buy one? Would you give the same answer if Sarah asked you?" ...

"Yesterday, the Ninth Circuit decided an interesting new Fourth Amendment case in a sharply divided opinion ..."

"First, some background. Fourth Amendment caselaw permits police officers to 'frisk' a suspect in close proximity to them — that is, pat the the suspect down for weapons — when they reasonably believe that 'the persons with whom [they are] dealing may be armed and presently dangerous.' Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1, 24 (1968). Importantly, the frisk has to be in response to a threat to officer safety like a gun or a knife, not for evidence of crime. Once the officer conducts the frisk, if he feels what he thinks is a weapon, he can take 'strictly circumscribed' steps to disable the weapon and therefore protect himself. ..." ...
