"My Safer Streets Newsletter features my piece on the one, easy way to unwind what the left has done. My guest writers there today are David Codrea, Gerard Valentino, and our friends at the Tenth Amendment Center."

"Americans are beginning to notice ... a hatred of this country from too many of our public servants. Our response must be understood as a righteous indignation and not as hatred of government. People reading our objections are puzzled as to why we would hate government. The truth is that we do not: we are simply objecting as they do to being subjected to the indignities of abuses of due process and assumptions of powers not granted. Do read the Tenth Amendment Center's article I selected on that." ...

"Back at the keyboard after a long weekend hunting mule deer in Okanogan County finds this column pleasantly surprised by Monday’s letter from Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter that throws down a gauntlet to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar over wolf management in the Gem State." ...

"In his blistering letter, Otter advised Salazar that the state will no longer 'manage wolves as the designated agent of the federal government.' Instead, Otter told Salazar that 'wolves serve as a constant reminder of how far we have strayed from the Founding Fathers' original intent of a national government with limited, enumerated powers bestowed by the states.' The letter is proof positive that Otter didn't back down at all from the wolf controversy ..." ...

"There has been a lot of discussion lately about Glenn Beck's supposed responsibility in the alleged actions of Byron Williams, accused of trying to start a 'revolution,' by killing high-ranking members of the Tides Foundation and ACLU. This plot (to be generous) ended with two California Highway Patrolmen wounded, along with Williams (who was then arrested). The Christian Science Monitor, for example, asks 'Did Glenn Beck's rhetoric inspire violence?'" ...

"The Godfather. The Sopranos. Pop culture's presentation of Italian family businesses here in the US – particularly ones that somehow involve firearms - isn't always flattering or glamorous. But is this presentation realistic? Or could the reality of a multi-generational Italian family business actually be better than the movies? Better yet, is there one that could even be called a true American success story? To answer those questions, the folks at LuckyGunner.com recently caught up with Carlo Fiocchi, a 4th generation Italian ammunition manufacturer. What we learned surprised us…and if you’ve watched either The Godfather or The Sopranos like we have, then his answers about Fiocchi Ammo will really surprise you too." ...

"The market is flooded with a steady stream of new carry guns every year. Manufacturers strive to incorporate newer and better technology--lighter materials, more capacity, better sights and more gadgets. But despite advances in technology, the basic requirements for a concealed carry pistol haven't changed and there are many older 'classic' handguns that will serve you as well as the most modern wonderguns."

"Classic guns have a number of advantages over the latest fad in firearms. First, classic guns can often be purchased used at a significant savings ... Classic guns are time tested, and have proven themselves over decades of service and parts and accessories are plentiful ..."

"Identifying classic carry guns, of course, is very subjective ..." ...

"Jeff Woods at the Nashville Scene's 'Pith in the Wind' blog reports on a troubling exchange between GOP gubernatorial candidate Bill Haslam and a gun rights advocate at a meeting of the Tennessee Firearms Association. At least, it's troubling to me. The bottom line: Haslam promised that if a bill came before him that allowed people to carry guns anywhere they want in Tennessee without a permit, he'd sign it. Here's the relevant exchange, as quoted by the Scene:"

"Leonard Embody ... opens the questioning on the audio tape of last night’s meeting. He succinctly states the gun nut philosophy on the matter of state permits." ...

The Navy competed against military units from all over NATO and won first place. Keep in mind, these rifles have fixed (though blunted) bayonets. Note that there are more than nine million views.

"Though the actual voting is still two weeks away, it seems clear that this midterm election cycle will be defined by a surprising presence and a remarkable absence."

"The presence, of course, is the tea-party movement, and what's absent are the social issues that so bitterly divided the electorate in recent campaigns."

"Demography and evolving public opinion are well on the way to making an electoral dead letter of same-sex marriage ... And the Roberts court's declaration that the Second Amendment confers individual rights was an unintended gift to the Democrats because it essentially took gun control off the table." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Except, as most gunnies know, the Second Amendment doesn't confer a damned thing, it protects a G-d given, individual, civil and human right.

"Reid has not been above 50 percent in public opinion surveys all year -- a fact which led ... Dick Morris to conclude that Reid will not win in November. And recent polls now show Reid trailing behind Angle."

"That is why the primary was very important to gun owners. ... When the primary field was surveyed, it was clear that the staunchest defender of the Constitution and the Second Amendment was Sharron Angle. Thus, GOA endorsed Angle in the primary." ...

Not deterred by the fact that it is illegal, or that Tom Miller's opinion on the matter is flimsy at best, Ottumwa has decided – per the recommendation from their Chief of Police – that the best way to keep citizens and workers safe is to post city property with a 'firearms prohibited' sign and hope the criminals obey." ...

"From the article:"
"The whitish top on the handgun lying in the grass in front of a West Toledo home was what caught Mason Knannlein's eye, but the 11-year-old didn't do what he suspects most boys would when making such a find: pick it up."

"Instead, Mason shouted to his next-door neighbor, in whose yard in the 4200 block of North Lockwood Avenue he had found the weapon, to call police while he waited nearby to make sure nobody else touched it, either." ...
