... "That said, the film may not get made. Funding for documentaries has always been difficult to obtain without well-resourced backers, and interest in the film community and among their foundation and individual benefactors in exposing the government’s part in sanctioning 'gunwalking' is practically nonexistent. In order to deal with that reality, McNulty has turned to us. ..." ...

"During the experiment, scientists asked men to hold an object, ranging from hand guns and water guns to saws and paint brushes. The anthropologist took a photograph of each hand and showed them to 600 test subjects, who were then asked to guess the approximate height and strength of the person holding the object." ...

"I recently lauded The New York Times for publishing an article about guns that wasn’t anti-gun. I pointed out that the post was a proverbial black swan. And here’s proof: I Hunt, but the N.R.A. Isn’t for Me. Don’t get me wrong. The NRA and I have our differences. But this? This is odd. 'I'm a hunter and a sportswoman. I own guns, but not for self-defense. I support gun control laws. I would happily vote to repeal the Stand Your Ground law in my home state of Oregon. In other words, the N.R.A. does not represent me.' Clearly. But wait! It gets better/worse . . ." ...

"RF’s recent Question of the Day on the Boy Scouts and Gun Prohibition got me thinking about the whole question of firearms in our society. On the one hand, why should an organization with a decidedly outdoor/camping/wilderness/survival focus prohibit the carrying of firearms by troop leaders? The answer to this question goes beyond some of the motives and other thoughts attributed to the BSA by a few of the comments to that post and instead provides a window into how American society and the society in many other countries actually operates." ...

"Opinions about a pair of contentious social issues, gun control and gay marriage, have changed substantially since previous presidential campaigns. On gun control, Americans have become more conservative; on gay marriage, they have become more liberal."

"Currently, 49% of Americans say it is more important to protect the rights of Americans to own guns, while 45% say it is more important to control gun ownership. Opinion has been divided since early 2009, shortly after Barack Obama’s election. From 1993 through 2008, majorities had said it was more important to control gun ownership than to protect gun rights." ...

"Harvard historian Jill Lepore has a piece attacking gun rights in the latest New Yorker, and a follow-up post on the magazine’s website. Most of it is basically what you’d expect: some numbers about gun violence, some horrifying anecdotes about people who’ve misused guns, some reporting from a gun range, some artsy writing ('a gun is a machine made to fire a missile that can bore through flesh'), and an overarching history of the gun-rights movement."

"More irksome, however, is Lepore’s analysis of the Second Amendment’s meaning. By leaving out or misrepresenting key historical details, she shortchanges the idea that the Second Amendment protects an individual right." ...

"For more than a century, Iver Johnson was a prolific manufacturer of revolvers that claimed a large share of the lower- to mid-priced market. From assembly lines in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Arkansas, the company produced scores of different models that ranged from crude, spur-trigger pocket pistols to full-size double-action revolvers whose fit, finish and features rivaled name-brand wheelguns. Shooter perception varied accordingly. Some considered 'Owlheads' (so-called for the grip embellishment seen on many models) nothing more than cheap marginal revolvers, while others appreciated a relatively inexpensive alternative that was also solid and reliable." ...

"Their AR-15 utilized a special attachment that uses blanks to shoot golf balls up to 250 yards. For a mere $25, you can also transform your lethal AR-15 into a delightful toy that's bound to give you and your buddies more than a few bruises." ...

"A bill currently making its way through the Oklahoma state legislature would allow citizens of the state to openly carry loaded handguns without a permit. Only six states and the District of Columbia expressly prohibit this practice, with the remaining states either specifically allowing open carry or having no law on the books prohibiting it. In recent years, the practice of openly carrying a gun has grown in popularity, as legislation that would permit it has been introduced in places like Texas, South Carolina, and Arkansas—some of the last states that have held out against it." ...

"The first thing I noticed about the question for this debate was the way it is worded. "Should people be 'allowed' to carry guns openly?" Using the phrase 'allowed' implies that open carry is a privilege that the state grants to citizens. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The right to openly bear arms for security and self-defense is enshrined not only in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution but also in a majority of state constitutions." ...

"Ever hear of the Second Amendment? I can think of no reason for not carrying guns openly. In fact, there are only seven states and the District of Columbia that continue to infringe on the Second Amendment by not allowing open carry. Fourteen states allow open carry with a license along with 29 states that allow unlicensed open carry, including four states—Arizona, Arkansas, Vermont, and Wyoming—which require no permits for carrying openly or concealed. If open carry were a big problem, wouldn't some of these states repeal these laws instead of trending toward open carry in more states?" ...

"Oklahoma already permits concealed carry, with a brief course of instruction.

"Openly carrying a loaded weapon in public is best left to highly trained individuals like law enforcement professionals. Before we give a law enforcement officer the awesome responsibility of carrying a firearm, we require that officer to have extensive training. This process ensures that he or she can shoot straight and has the judgment to use that weapon responsibly."

"If you want to use a firearm in your home, the risk is primarily to yourself and your family. Out in the community, however, there should be vigorous standards to protect the rest of us from any potential misuse of your weapon. George Zimmerman forever put to rest the idea that untrained individuals have the judgment to police their neighborhoods with guns." ...

"In the mid-1980s, an Austrian factory manager and curtain rod manufacturer named Gaston Glock introduced American consumers to a handgun that was lightweight, efficient, and could hold more bullets than the traditional six-round revolver.

Barrett in his new book, Glock: The Rise of America's Gun. Barrett, an assistant managing editor of Bloomberg Businessweek, recently spoke with U.S. News about Glock's business and cultural legacy and how the weapon affected America's gun control debate.
