... "That makes it all the more difficult to understand why, after spending untold dollars funding 'a team of no less than 10 government attorneys' in a time of supposed fiscal crisis, ATF once more finds itself trying to exploit Dobyn’s achievement as something they share credit in, even if it means undercutting its efforts to keep that achievement from succeeding."

"'ATF is again promoting my book and putting it on display within the walls of the ATF Headquarters building in Washington, D.C.,' Dobyns explained, providing the photos accompanying this column to prove it. 'It is being used to promote ATF's achievements on a wall labeled 'ATF Authors'.'" ...

"Another year is unfolding with state legislatures and Congress back in action, and there is no doubt that anti-gun lawmakers – virtually all of them Democrats – will once again push proposals designed to erode the Second Amendment, all in the effort to 'get guns off the streets.'"

"Here is a piece of advice for the 'party of gun control,' the nickname by which Democrats have come to be known."

"If you’re concerned about the number of firearms in the hands of an increasing number of law-abiding citizens, stop promoting legislation that smacks of regulation, registration or outright bans. If that’s not clear enough, to 'get guns off the street' you must first take them off the table." ...

"Within the new Obamacare law is a provision that critics say places their doctors, nurses, and hospitals in the role of arbiters in the push for more gun control. A previous Examiner report exposed that fact."

"But many doctors are fighting back. They don't want to be gun control arbiters. They do not see such a thing as being part of their role as medical care providers. And even if they were forced into such a role, they see themselves as ill-equipped to make such decisions." ...

"The Blaze carried a story devoted to Mayor Bloomberg’s intermingling of his private passion for infringing on the second amendment with his use of public funds to do so."

"Among the comments was this insightful reply from nzkiwi:"
"While we all believed that there were underhanded machinations afoot, it is never-the-less surprising to see clear proof."
"American gun owners should take considerable satisfaction that the law of unintended consequences came to their aid, however."

"Determined efforts to increase gun control by President Obama, supported by Mayor Bloomberg and others, caused such alarm in your nation that there are now more gun owners in America than at any time in your country’s history." ...

The only thing missing was the ability to adjust the height of the cheek piece, since the rest was fixed in place. Now, Bradley has come out with a new cheek rest that can be adjusted to the user’s preference." ...

"The people who make the guns and ammo, the advertisers in the magazine for which Metcalf worked, did not see it that way. They saw Metcalf as a person to be shunned. He lost his TV show; he lost his reviewing gigs. His career is shot, all for stating some blindingly obvious truths."

Submitter's Note: There is another 'blindingly obvious truth' that antis like Jon just can't seem to wrap their heads around, and that is the difference between true grass roots efforts and AstroTurf® activism. They see our reaction to Dick Metcalf's column or Jim Zumbo's blog entry and think that the Ee-vil Gun Lobby must be behind it. They are utterly unable to recognize true grass-roots activity because it doesn't exist in the anti-gun 'movement'.

This year’s new offering is the AR-31, a scaled down version of their AR-50 rifle that uses the same detachable magazines that work in their semi-auto AR-10 rifles. It feels great and works great, except for the trigger. It still feels square and slightly sharp, just like on the AR-30 rifle introduced last year, and the AR-50 before that. I’ve made my displeasure known, because but for that issue it looks like a good rifle . . ." ...

"Gun confiscation by law enforcement of legal firearms increasing in gun restrictive states like New York and California may not be surprising. However, legally armed individuals in states with more Second Amendment friendly laws may find that local law enforcement may seize their firearms even when no crime has been committed."

"The NY SAFE Act, the gun safety law passed in the aftermath of the massacre in Newtown, Conn., was supported by a bipartisan State Legislature and signed by Gov. Andrew M.

"U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia affirmed in the 2008 Heller decision that the Second Amendment allows reasonable regulation of dangerous and unusual weapons.

"Cuomo’s office presented the proposed law on Jan. 14, issuing it as a 'message of necessity,' meaning it could be voted on immediately rather than going through the normal process. The state Senate passed it that evening and the Assembly the next day. Cuomo signed the bill about 5 p.m. on Jan. 15, 2013."

"During his two decades with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, Gary Pudup sometimes came face-to-face with holes in the state’s gun laws."

"Without a statewide database for law enforcement to check, it wasn’t unheard of to find someone convicted of a felony and arrested on another charge still holding on to their out-of-county pistol permit and their handguns."

"While the SAFE Act won’t solve every problem of gun violence, it would plug that hole and overall is something Pudup supports."

"For those who feel the need to carry a gun, please conceal it. The current open carry advocates are doing more harm than good and for the most part their acts of protest are counterproductive.
