"Mike Vanderboegh addressed Eric Holder again today."

"The article was a little more troubling than usual for me. ..." ...

"What's troubling is that Mike's tone sounds like a man deliberately putting his affairs in order."

"Anyone who has followed the man's writing for a while knows he scrupulously insists on 'no Fort Sumters', which suggests that he probably believes that the control freaks are going to do something stupid to set off the powderkeg themselves--whether intentionally or simply through negligence. (I know for a sight there's a lot of people out there that will not believe any official story that implicates him as an instigator. His history would make that fantastically implausible.)" ...

... "See, we know what the globalist gun grabbers want. International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) director Rebecca Peters makes no secret of her desire to ban all light weapons. And all you really need to do is look at the knotted gun sculpture in front of the United Nations building to understand what the ultimate desire is." ...

"The Supreme Court has issued its decision to not hear the case of David Olofson, rejecting amicus briefs issued by his attorneys and Gun Owners of America."

"The conviction has massive ramifactions for anyone who owns a semi-automatic firearm — and for all non-gun owning Americans who cherish freedom."

"David Olofson Sr. expressed his thanks to the members of Wisconsin Gun Owners, 'for your help in supporting our son's case. I wish we could do more to wake up the American public. ...'" ...

"Well, there’s good news and bad news."

"If you've been listening to the media, you know the bad news. Senators voted the Baucus version of the ObamaCare bill out the Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday, and the legislation now moves to the Senate floor."

"So what’s the good news? President Obama still doesn't have the 60 votes he needs to overcome a filibuster of his nationalized health care bill."

"We would like to think the shooting death of a 13-year-old boy near a Cambria Heights car wash would sound a wake-up call in the war against illegal guns, but it is sounded every time a young life is lost and nothing happens. It is as easy to buy an illegal gun today in southeast Queens as it was before Kevin Miller was shot. Mothers raising teen boys in this part of town who do not worry every day that their child will not come home are fooling themselves."

"The NYPD projects there will be about 457 murders this year, the lowest total since the department started keeping records in 1962. But that will be of little consolation for Kevin’s family." ...

"Well I just got back from a break in the fight
I was weighing in heavy but still feeling alright
All I hear in the distance - mines and shells
Here come the sirens wailing
Another attack to be repelled

Do you think we're gonna make it?
I don't know unless we try
You could sit here scared to move
Or we could take them by surprise
It's submission that they want
It's surrender that they need
When we're doing it their way
Their aims will be achieved

"'Wear a gun, get a free bun' might just be the rallying cry at this coming Saturday's 'freedom rally' on October 17th, 2009 protesting Congressman Eric Cantor's 'Republican Roundup' at the anti-gun Innsbrook Snagajob Pavilion in Henrico County, Virginia."

"Innsbrook area businesses have banded together to offer gun owners material support in the form of lodging, food, and drink specials. So far these businesses include: The Richmond Marriott West, The Hilton Garden Inn Richmond Innsbrook, Capital Ale House, Finn McCools, Sharky's Billiards, Hondo's, Curry House, and Mama Cucina." ...

"Mention the name 'Mike Dewine' to most gun owners, and the reaction is a visceral one."

"They remember all too well how DeWine (whom Ohio voters ousted from his U.S. Senate seat in 2006, and who is now seeking the Republican nomination for Ohio Attorney General) ran around sporting a Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence (formerly Handgun Control Inc.) endorsement because 'his record really wowed the group.'" ...

"And yet despite the memory of a long history of consistently casting his votes on the side of the most rabid anti-gun Democrats in the Senate, and judging by a recent fundraiser email, Mike DeWine seems convinced that gun owners are either extremely stupid, or have extremely short memories." ...

"A press release and automated calls to voters by Seattle mayoral candidate Mike McGinn's campaign, accusing opponent Joe Mallahan of wanting to 'make it legal to bring loaded firearms to playgrounds, pools, and community centers,' was touching off dueling statements of lying and waffling Friday evening."

"And in response to a challenge from McGinn asking Mallahan to say whether he would defend in court a new ban on firearms in Seattle parks, community centers and other facilities where children might be present, Mallahan spokeswoman Charla Neuman was non-committal."

"But rather than waffling, she said that was the responsible stance." ...

"Not that he had far to fall, but Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has further dropped out of favor with his party after signing legislation this week placing new restrictions on gun ammunition sales."

"'This doesn't make a lot of sense from a Republican governor, though we may stop calling him a Republican,' said Assemblyman Curt Hagman, R-Chino Hills. 'That is the thing, you don't know where he is coming from, and that is the worst. I would rather know who I am dealing with even if I don't agree with him.'" ...

"Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's made his decision at the last second to sign Assembly Bill 962 into law."

"If you're not familiar with the measure, it requires handgun ammunition be kept behind the counter where customers cannot access it without assistance. Okay, that's not a killer deal, Wal-Mart and others already do that. The irate response is to the requirement that retailers now thumbprint people who buy handgun ammo, record their identification and then report that information to police." ...

"The NSSF estimates AB962 could cost California nearly $3 million in lost sales taxes, and add $629,000 annually to an already busted state budget. Lost retail sales could be as much as $35.7 million." ...

"Authorities said a Vilonia police officer involved in a fracas at a private club in Conway has been taken into custody only after he was Tasered by his own brother, who is a Conway officer. Vilonia officer Jeremy Smith, 32, faces charges of disorderly conduct and public intoxication."

"... when Conway officer Lloyd Smith arrived on the scene after midnight Wednesday morning, he found his brother Jeremy resisting arrest ..."

"... his brother continued to 'raise his fists as if he was ready to fight, I pointed my Taser at Jeremy and pled with him, 'please don't make me Tase you.'"

"But Jeremy Smith continued to be uncooperative ... and was Tasered by his brother, handcuffed and taken to the Faulkner County Jail for 12-hour detox."

KABA Note: "charges of disorderly conduct and public intoxication" but where is the charge of "resisting arrest"? Could it have something to do with the fact that the officer is facing two Class C misdemeanors, whereas Resisting Arrest is a Class A misdemeanor?

"In Joe Babler's October 2 column, 'We can regulate our automatic rifles and shoot them, too,' the author stated that private sales of firearms at gun shows (the so-called 'gun show loophole') 'allows an unregulated stream of guns to flow into the hands of violent felons.'"

"It does not. This is a favorite canard of folks who want stricter regulations on Second Amendment rights, which is parroted even by well-meaning people like Mr. Babler. The fact is that the FBI Uniform Crime Reports statistics show that less than one percent of guns used in crimes in America are obtained at gun shows ... This hardly demonstrates the urgency implied in Mr. Babler's statement." ...

"On Wednesday we posted a little item on Mayor Nickels' gun ban and what the current mayoral candidates thought of it. Showing a picture of a gun-toting squirrel; calling gun-owners 'nuts'; it was, to say the least, a little kneejerk."

"I don't own a gun. I've only fired a rifle a few times in my life. And I'm generally afraid of the ferocity with which some people bind themselves to the second amendment and their weapons. But that doesn't mean I'm not wrong, in this instance, to give automatic support to an idea that may be an attempt by the Mayor to fix a problem that doesn't exist ..."

"... Nickels' ban is going to cost the city a lot of money and a lot of time in court on a lawsuit we're eventually going to lose. ..." ...

"Now that the United States Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments in the case of McDonald v. Chicago, the Second Amendment is back in the spotlight. Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray, who will join arguments in the case, believes that the people's Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is fundamental and cannot be denied by state and local governments. He outlined his perspective in an exclusive interview with Public Nuisance Wire."

"PNW: The Second Amendment has become a hot topic of late. Why do you think this is?"

"Cordray: I think Americans have always valued their rights under the Second Amendment and want to ensure that these rights are not unduly restricted by government." ...
