... "What that means is, the only hope those demanding truth and consequences for Fast and Furious will have is if Mitt Romney defeats Obama. Unfortunately, even that will give no guarantee, because the GOP challenger has thus far played coy on the matter, paying lip service along the lines of South Park’s Mr. Mackey ('Gunwalker’s bad, m’kay'), but revealing absolutely nothing about what he will do if given the power to make a difference in the way an executive branch abomination that has left hundreds of dead human beings in its wake is treated." ...

"The lamestream media told you:"

"The UN Arms Trade Treaty ended in failure, as the parties could not reach agreement before their self-imposed deadline. A dull sentiment of remorse fell over the conference as high hopes for an agreement ended dashed. ..."

"The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:"

"The first draft of the current effort at a UN Arms Trade Treaty was a smashing success after nearly six years of effort and a solid month of direct negotiations in New York at UN headquarters. It yielded a draft proposal with many of the most difficult terms and conditions hammered out in grueling sessions with all major parties and 170 nations represented." ...

A more colorful room of fascinating characters peddling their musty treasures and polymer wares, you will never find.

"I had a new barrel put on my Quadlock a month ago. It is a 30″ 5R 13″ twist Kreiger barrel. Saturday was the first opportunity I have had to sight it in. For some of you reading this that are fellow competitors this is nothing new. But in my short life of shooting Palma rifles I have only changed barrels 2 – 3 times. And someone has always set it up for me where all I had to do was show up at the range and shoot it and adjust accordingly. This time I made sure Jim Cloward, my gunsmith, did nothing without me so I could understand the process better. It is not really that difficult but it is certainly interesting. The rifle is meant to shoot up to 1000 yards but I sighted it in at 50 and 100 yards." ...

"I’ve been handloading my own cartridges for years now and I am asked quite often by budding reloaders, what they will need to get started. Typically I recite my customary spiel on the basics of the getting into the hobby and occasionally I hear back, 'But I only want to load for one caliber?' It’s at this point that I realize, my usual pitch isn’t really written for this audience; this guy doesn’t need a full size press and hundreds of dollars worth of stuff, because he only shoots for a certain thing. These guys are really only looking to put together 20 to 50 rounds here or there and typically just want a box or two ... So for them something different is needed that is a bit less involved, complex and expensive." ...

"From new AR style autoloaders to antique single shot bolt actions there is a .22 rifle for everyone. But perhaps the most overlooked design of .22 actions is the pump action, or sometimes called 'slide action' when referring to rifles. And even in that category it seems like few can name a favorite, but when they do the nifty Remington 572 comes up."

"The Remington 572 is no spring chicken and neither is Remington’s pump-action design. The rifle was first produced in 1954 and is still in production today. Generally when we think about pump actions, we think in relation to a shotgun—like the Remington 870. The 572 and the 870 are, for the most part ,the same design, and perhaps Remington planned it that way. ..." ...

"Mexicans have a Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Unfortunately, it isn’t as straightforward as ours. Exploiting Article 10, the Mexican government has severely curtailed its citizens’ gun rights (e.g., closed all private gun stores and channeled all sales through the military). The result has been chaos; some 60k dead in the last four years, thousands of people tortured and raped, millions living in fear, and the complete disintegration of the country’s public institutions. But all is not lost, yet. Some Mexicans still have the motive, means and opportunity to defend themselves from criminals and corrupt government officials.

"In tonight’s presidential debate, President Obama answered a question about 'keeping AK-47′s out of the hands of criminals' by pledging his support for an assault weapons ban. Although he parried Governor Romney’s opposition to the ban by paraphrasing the old anti-Kerry slam—'Governor Romney was for an assault weapon’s ban before he was against it'—the damage is done. In a single stroke the President completely alienated pro-gun independents. Obama’s support for new gun control move may not decide the election. Then again it might.

... "If Miller is, as Stevens argues, still in effect, and if it only protects possession and use of 'arms that were related to military activities,' then the gun ban lobby's description of so-called 'assault weapons' as 'weapons of war' would mean that possession of such arms is precisely what the Second Amendment is meant to protect."

"The forcible citizen disarmament lobby's reliance on the (badly, and probably deliberately, misinterpreted) Miller decision is notable for another reason.

Should the government be allowed to search and seize your possessions based on nothing more than a positive "alert" from a drug-sniffing dog? The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution requires police, in most situations, to have what is known as a "probable cause" (a reasonable belief based on sufficient facts) before they can search or seize property. Increasingly, however, police have been using drug-sniffing dogs to establish probable cause to seize, and ultimately keep through civil forfeiture, cash, cars and other property on the grounds that the property may be linked to a drug crime.
