... "'I'm ashamed I didn't pick up on this before,' Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars admits. 'Sheesh, it was hiding in plain sight.'"

"Vanderboegh is not the only one who missed the obvious. Even more embarrassing, Gun Rights Examiner reported 'Holder revelations contradict Obama's 'Gunwalker' assertions' on October 4, referencing the same video King 'discovered,' but failed to notice and note the date of the president’s interview." ...

"Despite dire predictions that striking down gun control laws and allowing individuals to exercise their Second Amendment rights would lead to more gun violence, just the opposite is happening, according to recently announced FBI statistics."

"The statistics show that violent crime actually fell six percent in 2010. Rates are less than half of what they were 20 years ago for murder and non-negligent manslaughter (4.8 per 100,000 population), the lowest since 1963." ...

"'The other talk about gun safety,' the front page ... piece in Monday's (Oct. 10) News-Leader, recommends that parents keep their kids safe by asking their hosts, 'Are there guns in the home?' A great idea, but why stop there?"

"Shouldn't parents concerned with child safety ask their hosts if there are knives in the home? Wouldn't want the kid to cut himself searching through kitchen drawers. Better ask about electricity, 'Do you have wall receptacles?' The kid might stick a dime in one and be electrocuted. How about drain cleaner under the sinks? The kid might drink it. Booze!! 'Do you have any liquor or beer in the house?' The kid might go on a bender while the parents aren't watching." ...

Gun Owner Soils Himself at the Sight of…a Gun

"Chuck Avery’s a gun owner. Just ask him. And he didn’t just inherit grandpa’s squirrel gun that he keeps over the fireplace, either. He owns both rifles and pistols. As he tells it, he even 'used to go out to the woods and target shot at all times of the year.' That means winter, too folks. So Chuck’s no nervous nelly. He’s not some namby-pamby shrinking violet when it comes to being around firearms. And that only serves to illustrate how truly disturbing his recent experience in the grocery section of Wally World was. I hope he found time to make a side trip to the men’s unmentionables department while he was there because, from the way he describes the horror he experienced, he likely needs a new pair of Fruit of the Looms…" ...

"A decision by retail giant Wal-Mart in July to strengthen its oversight of gun purchases has drawn criticism from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and plaudits from groups such as the Million Mom March against handgun violence."

"Wal-Mart has ordered its stores to wait until a Brady Law criminal background check on a purchaser is complete before selling guns to that purchaser, no matter how long the check takes. Currently, under federal law, gun sales can take place if a background check is not completed within three business days." ...

"A tragic shooting rampage in Seal Beach, Calif., left eight victims dead and one victim listed in critical condition. The shooting eruption took place on Wednesday afternoon at a hair salon in the quiet community. Unfortunate events like these happen all too often, and always seem to bring attention to the forefront of the long-running gun control debate. These events often make supporters on both sides re-evaluate their stance. The casualty at Seal Beach made me re-evaluate mine." ...

"I am no fan of the Second Amendment, inasmuch as it tends to be the refuge of bumpkins and yeehaws who like to think they are protecting their homes against imagined swarthy marauders desperate to steal their flea-bitten sofas from their rotting front porches. But I am a realist. I admit that the Second Amendment is here to stay, so we might as well clean it up to reflect modern political sensibilities." ...

“Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition is for use on ZOMBIES ONLY, and that’s not a nickname, phrase or cute way of referring to anybody, place or thing. When we say Zombies, we mean…ZOMBIES!” (video available)

"Traditionally, Hornady has appealed to the high end market. People who take their shooting seriously enough to pay serious money for their cartridges. They’re paying for ammo that’s accurate, dependable, deadly. In that order. Hornady’s pre-Halloween release of Zombie ammo is a major marketing jump sideways—and a hit. Our friends in the industry report brisk sales. And it’s all just a bit of fun, innit mate? That said, this new video takes the Hornady brand in a new direction, adding interpersonal—OK person to zombie—violence to the marketing mix. While the company has never shied away from showing true life hunting hits, point blank head shots to a [somewhat] human from an AR takes it to another level. ..." ...

Obama Knew About 'Fast And Furious' Before Holder?

"Early last week, documents were uncovered that illustrated that Attorney General Eric Holder had been briefed on 'Operation Fast and Furious' at least as early as July, 2010. That would seem to cast some serious doubts on his integrity (and even make him a perjurer), given the fact that in sworn testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on May 3 (of this year), he claimed to have first heard about the operation some time in 'the last few weeks.' ..."

"Now, it becomes apparent that President Obama himself publicly admitted to knowing about 'Operation Fast and Furious,' and the fact that the operation centered on deliberately 'walking' guns ... not 'a few weeks' before Holder's testimony, but a month and a half before. ..." ...

"There's a new twist in the government's 'gunwalking' scandal involving an even more dangerous weapon: grenades."

"CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, who has reported on this story from the beginning, said on 'The Early Show' that the investigation into the [ATF]'s so-called 'Fast and Furious' operation branches out to a case involving grenades. Sources tell her a suspect was left to traffic and manufacture them for Mexican drug cartels."

"Police say Jean Baptiste Kingery, a U.S. citizen, was a veritable grenade machine. He's accused of smuggling parts for as many as 2,000 grenades into Mexico for killer drug cartels -- sometimes under the direct watch of U.S. law enforcement." ...

"That contrasts sharply with what President Obama told a CNN En Espanol interviewer last March:"

"'There have been problems, you know. I heard on the news about this story that — Fast and Furious, where allegedly guns were being run into Mexico, and ATF knew about it but didn't apprehend those who sent it. Eric Holder has — the attorney general has been very clear he knew nothing about this. We had assigned an I.G., inspector general, to investigate it.'" ...

"The efforts of readers like you are paying off!"

"Eric Holder has just been subpoenaed by Rep. Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee!"

"But this is only the beginning…"

"This subpoena will likely provide proof Eric Holder knew about all the smuggled weapons, drug cartels, murdered American border patrol agents, cover-ups, and perjury."

"And exactly when he knew about it! But all of these details won’t mean a thing if we can’t break past the anti-gun media and broadcast this government corruption across the nation." ...

"Let's understand what all the fuss is about with the Obama administration's ill-conceived 'Fast and Furious' operation -- or rather what it should be about. It's not about assigning blame, or playing 'gotcha,' or covering up mistakes. It's not about Republican critics forcing top administration officials to resign, or those officials spinning whatever fantastic narratives are necessary to avoid doing so. It's about who pays the price when government agencies make bad decisions." ...
