... "In other words, in spite of documented facts, Weiner is expecting the uninformed among us to buy that Fast and Furious was a 'bottom up' operation, but that Wide Receiver had 'top down' cognizance. And he does it using the time-tested tactics of the regressive left, projecting what they are about onto others, in this case with an obscenely hypocritical call to 'rise over politics.'" ...

... "Is the concern that Qaddafi didn’t receive justice in a court of law, or that he got a little well-deserved, if decades belated, curb-side justice at the hands of an armed private citizen? The U.N. definitely appears to have this 'thing' about armed citizens, which is a monumental irony, considering that the organization chose this country for its world headquarters. Get outside the confines of lower New England and the lower Hudson River, and there are millions of armed private citizens, many of whom would be delighted to educate the U.N. about the contemporary importance of the Second Amendment." ...

"The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) held their 26th annual Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Chicago this year. I have missed the last few events and was excited to attend this year's conference. I'm not sure how many I have attended, but for me, this was the best."

"Many criticized going and spending money in Chicago, Illinois, which is enemy territory for gun owners. Illinois is the only state with no legal concealed carry, with Chicago leading the fight against gun ownership in that state. But you don't win wars by playing defense. You must play offense to score points. ..." ...

"But Van Hollen is not always a partisan."

"In late September 2009, ATF Phoenix Group VII supervisor Hope MacAllister walked into the Lone Wolf Trading Company. She had a message for the owner Andre Howard, according to sources familiar with the investigation into Fast & Furious in both DC and Arizona, and the message was this: 'The amount of weapons you sell is about to dramatically increase.' Howard, the sources say, was cautioned that 'he might not have enough stock' to supply the straw buyers that MacAllister somehow knew were on the way and that 'he should stock up on what they wanted.'"

"Arizonans don’t need me to tell them that Fast and Furious is a big story. This scandal started in our backyard — in the ATF’s Phoenix office — and was administered by a U.S. attorney appointed by President Obama."

"High-ranking U.S. officials used taxpayer money ... to buy guns and ship them to Mexico. The administration claims these firearms were shipped to Mexico in an attempt to destabilize Mexican drug cartels." ...

"In a seven-page letter to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, [Rep. Issa and Sen. Grassley] said the lack of answers being given to Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry’s family ... 'only compounds their anguish.'"

"This important legislation has been languishing in both houses of Congress for the past several years in spite of bi-partisan efforts to get it moving. The Senate version of the bill, sponsored by Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), was passed out of the Judiciary Committee in 2009 and placed on the Senate Calendar under General Orders where it remained awaiting action from self-avowed Second Amendment supporter, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Reid allowed the bill to die with the close of the 111th Congress and it was not reintroduced in the Senate in the 112th Congress."

"Wisconsin’s attorney general has given the National Rifle Association his reasoning behind the rules drafted for the new concealed weapons law. The N-R-A loudly protested after J-B Van Hollen’s Justice Department ordered a four-hour training requirement for concealed weapons permits. The N-R-A also took issue with making trainers sign certificates for those taking courses – and it said the background checks Wisconsin requires would not let weapons’ holders in 20 other states do the same in the Badger State." ...
-------

KABA Note: AG Hollen can give all the "reasoning" he wants, but the fact of the matter is his training requirement violates the plain language of the law where it says "The department [of justice] may not impose conditions, limitations, or requirements that are not expressly provided for in this section on the issuance, scope, effect, or content of a license."
