Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"What do you get when you cross a gas pump nozzle with a Thompson submachine gun? No, it's not a joke. It's a new and rather unconventional .45-caliber (.45 ACP) subgun that attenuates/mitigates felt recoil and muzzle rise/climb--thus increasing controllability--on full-auto by putting the bore axis at or slightly below the centerline of the shooter's fist and forearm and combining that ergonomic aspect with a mechanical recoil attenuation/mitigation system. It's called the KRISS Super V Sub-machine gun, and it's brought to you by the good folks at Transformational Defense Industries (TDI), headquartered in Washington, D.C. That's more than a little ironic. ..." ...

"An amendment to United States Senate Bill number one (Section 220) almost succeeded in putting the brakes on grassroots activism. Yesterday, the US Senate stripped out language that would require 'grassroots causes' and 'bloggers' who communicate to 500 or more members of the public on policy matters to register and report quarterly to Congress."

"Had it become law, the best case would have been that Ohioans For Concealed Carry may have had to take intrusive and bureaucratic precautions when encouraging our members to support or oppose efforts by Congress. The worst case would have been to abandon those efforts entirely due to an inability to properly report our efforts on a quarterly basis." ...

"Now that the Democrats are back in control of Congress, look for bills aimed at dismantling our Second Amendment rights to start popping up like dandelions on a spring lawn."

"One of the first schemes planned is a law requiring every gun in America to be 'fingerprinted.' Called 'ballistic imaging technology,' it's based on the presumption that every gun leaves unique, identifiable marks on a bullet casing fired from that gun."

"Imaging laws would require every person who owns a rifle or pistol to go out and shoot it, then send the empty case to the government so the empty cartridge can be scanned into a computer database. Additionally, all new guns would be fired at the factory and the manufacturer would send in the empty case ..." ...

"Working with NRA-ILA and the Texas State Rifle Association, State Representative Joe Driver (R-Garland) has garnered seventy-eight co-authors to House Bill 284, the NRA-backed 'Castle Doctrine'/self-defense reform bill."

"The proposed measure is modeled after Florida's landmark law, creating presumptions of reasonable use of defensive force in your home, vehicle, or place of business. The bill will codify that you have 'no duty to retreat' from a violent attack if you are in a place where you have a right to be, if you are not the initial aggressor, and if you are not engaged in criminal activity. HB 284 also establishes protection from civil lawsuits if you lawfully protect yourself or your family." ...

"MANCHESTER'S Moss Side became a by-word for gun violence during the 1980s and 90s when ferocious clashes between the Gooch Close and Doddington gangs led to the city being dubbed 'Gunchester' and 'Britain's Bronx'."
