"A Gallup Poll released this morning reveals that the average American owns 1.7 guns, with the average gun owner possessing 4.4 of them. The press is quick to promote stereotypes of the average gun owner as a white male, most likely Republican, living in a rural area or the South. But how well does reality match the image? The new Gallup Poll shows that the stereotype is not that far off, but with several twists."

"For one thing, one out of three American women say they own a gun. That's not much below the overall mark of 40% for all American adults." ...

"Eventually, the Republicans will lose power and the left will again rise in our country. ..." ...

"If ... the American left takes a good look in the mirror and realizes that America has long ago abandoned left-socialism, and is now in some sort of anti-leftist vogue, the Democrats can put the brakes on our country’s fast journey toward totalitarianism, simply by returning to their roots. Not their Rooseveltian roots, but their Jeffersonian ones."

"One thing the Dems should do is stop being so overtly hostile toward gun owners. If the Democrats came down hard in favor of the Second Amendment, that alone would probably win them the national elections. ..." ...

"The Bloomberg administration has reached agreement with City Council leaders on a bill that would make it easier for crime victims to sue gun manufacturers and dealers who do not adhere to strict guidelines for selling and distributing their firearms."

"The bill, which is expected to pass the Council today, would allow civil suits to be filed against the manufacturers and dealers unless they voluntarily adopt a "code of conduct." That code would include restrictions like selling no more than one handgun to a particular person within a 30-day period and requiring background checks of all prospective buyers at gun shows." ...

Rifle Sight lets soldiers shoot around corners.

"Scientists from MTC Technologies, Inc. (MTC) Land Forces Group have developed a new rifle sighting capability that permits both direct or indirect firing, and can be mounted on any weapon that has a Picatinny 1913 Rail weapon mount. It allows the soldier to place a laser dot on target and fire around corners, over or under barriers, and into buildings using a variety of off angle firing positions, with only the hands and forearms exposed."

"While need for such technology has been documented back to WWI and several countries, including the United States, have used similar devices through the years, the Parascope [sic: trade name] is unique because it requires no zeroing, calibration or external power source. The device contains a five-sided prism and has viewing ports from the rear for normal firing, and from the side for indirect firing. The lightweight Parascope can be left on the weapon or carried in a pouch for quick mounting. It does not interfere with normal operation when left on the weapon."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some of the worst abuses of government force in recent years were precipitated by technical and victimless gun-law violations. For example, the BATF claimed that the Branch Davidians possessed machine guns without paying the required federal tax and filling in the proper registration forms. So a tax case worth less than $10,000 led to a 76-man helicopter, machine gun, and grenade assault on a home in which 2/3 of the occupants were women and children. — Dave Kopel and Dr. Michael S. Brown, Prohibition Fever, NationalReview.com
