"This is the time of year for making resolutions--promises to oneself that the new year will be characterized by a new start in the effort toward self-improvement. Maybe it's weight loss or more exercise, quitting smoking,or maybe it's simply being kinder to those around us. The vast majority of us have a fairly wide range of options on aspects of our lives that leave room for improvement."

"As gun rights advocates, we can make resolutions of our own, in support of the issue we hold dear. National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea has offered many excellent examples in the past, and this column has also come up with a suggestion. This year, current events suggest another possibility." ...

"Get acquainted with your local state legislators and your congressional representative. Find out their views on Second Amendment issues including so-called 'universal background checks' to bans on so-called 'assault weapons.' Ask them about concealed and open carry, and state preemption. Attend the 'town hall' meetings in your district when these people come begging for your support, and be wary of any candidate or incumbent who says, 'I support the Second Amendment, but…'" ...

"Year-end lists have become pretty much obligatory. But when we decided to name the best of the best in the world of guns for 2013 – a first for TTAG – we didn’t want to do all the heavy lifting ourselves. Where’s the fun in that? Instead, we figured it made more sense to leave the decision-making to the collective wisdom of you, our readers. And I probably don’t have to tell you you’re an opinionated group. So now that we’ve weeded out the snark and older stuff, here are your choices for the best new products in the firearm firmament for 2013 . . ." ...

Every case I was involved in had either a favorable resolution, or a postponement requested by an opposing side not eager to face losing. I’m hoping for the same in an attempted murder trial scheduled for mid-next month. Another year exactly the same, preferably minus near-death experiences, would suit me just fine." ...

"'While Cypriots can own guns, it’s a bear to get them,' Gutfeld noted on the popular talk show The Five."

"'There is no gun culture there, which then allows the government to wonder of its docile populace: 'What are they gonna do -- shoot us?'"

"Regarding '4 charged in fatal mall carjacking have records' (Page A-1, Dec. 22):"

"New Jersey remains one of a handful of states that still deny their citizens their Second Amendment right of self-defense.

Wherever citizens are armed under concealed-carry laws, armed assaults decline." ...

"The same man who has spent much of his career and personal fortune trying to render good, law-abiding men and women defenseless, will now surround himself with a team of armed bodyguards." ...

"Although Bloomberg is leaving office today, his assault on our Second Amendment freedom is certainly not over."

"He has vowed to spend whatever amount it takes from his $31 billion fortune to buy Congress in this year’s mid-term elections, so he can hand Barack Obama a gun ban majority in the U.S. House and Senate. If that happens, Obama can spend his final years in office dismantling the Second Amendment." ...

"New York’s expanded ban on assault weapons is constitutional, but it cannot limit a magazine to seven bullets, a federal court judge ruled today."

"The ruling by Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny in Buffalo found New York’s gun-control law, called the SAFE Act, that restricts assault weapons doesn’t infringe on Second Amendment rights. But the judge tossed a provision that limits a magazine that can hold 10 rounds to just seven bullets." ...

"'But, the seven-round limit fails the relevant test because the purported link between the ban and the state’s interest is tenuous, strained, and unsupported in the record,' [the judge] continued." ...

"Judge William Skretny in Buffalo concluded those provisions are constitutional because they’re related to achieving an 'important governmental interest' in public safety. Those two features make guns more lethal, he wrote, citing testimony submitted in the case." ...

Honestly, I dread dealing with the government at all, so I put it off for as long as possible. Finally, on a day we both had a little spare time, we headed downtown. My wife, wise in the ways of the world, suggested calling ahead to make sure they were going to be open until 5:00. I called the Sheriff’s office and a pleasant woman said yes, they’d be open until 5:00, but that the deputy in charge of renewing licenses wouldn’t take renewals after 4:00 PM for some inexplicable reason. Since it was 3:50 PM at the time, we knew we weren’t going to make it, turned around and headed back home . . ." ...
