Why did ATF issue—and then rescind—a ruling declaring air guns ‘firearms’?

... "The fact remains—ATF has the testing conclusions to execute this aborted ruling if and when they wish to—in fact, if their analysis about what constitutes a United States Code-defined 'firearm' is 'correct'—and if they don’t know, who does?—this could be a Sword of Damocles hanging over the heads of airgun dealers and owners that could be dropped at any time." ...
 

Airsoft fiasco just latest example of why BATFE must be held accountable

... "And, as implied in today's title, this snafu fits a long-standing pattern of out-of-control behavior on the BATFE's part. Just in the last few years, we have the crucifixion of David Olofson, the 'legal/not-legal' flip-flopping on the Akins Accelerator, 'economic Waco' operations against gun shop owners and gunsmiths/gun designers/firearm experts (that example driven by pure, vindictive spite), and far too many more examples to cover here." ...

Gun Doctor Dishes the Dirt on Ruger SR9c vs. SR40 Triggers (video available)
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"When I told Ruger that the SR40Œs trigger felt nothing like the go pedal on the Ruger SR9c, and nowhere near as good, the company said the triggers were identical. Same factory. Same parts. So I ascribed the difference to a manufacturing problem. We requested a second SR40. Same issue. Ruger suggested that wefd cleaned the gun incorrectly. So I sent the SR40 to our Gun Doctor for comparison. He confirmed the basics: completely different trigger feel between the two weapons. And then he broke eem down and dished the dirt . . ." ...

"Back in October, TTAG reported that Remington produced a large batch of 115-grain UMC 9mm cartridges that were too short. The company wouldn’t tell us how many rounds suffered from this defect, which caused a double-feed in our T&E Ruger SR9c. And another journalist’s Ruger SR9c. And, get this, our Gun Doctor’s Ruger SR9c. Earlier today, Remington issued a safety recall for its 22 Hornet 45 Gr PSP ammo . . . ." ...

"By now, the entire Pacific Northwest should have heard or read about a real-life drama that – in the final analysis – is the kind of thing from which legends are made, except that in the case of Oregon’s Gert Boyle, the 'head Mother' of Columbia Sportswear, the legend is already there and her misadventure with an armed robber merely chisels the legend into granite." ...

"Mayor Sam Adams is scheduled to bring two potentially controversial initiatives to the City Council on Wednesday, Nov. 17."

"One is a proposed series of ordinances to reduce the use of guns in crimes. Adams first announced the initiative this summer after a series of gang-related shootings. Among other things, the proposals would require owners to report the theft of guns to the police within 24 hours and create zones in the city where people convicted of gun-related crimes could be excluded." ...
 

FL: Joyce Kaufman Stays In Florida to be "Your Biggest Nightmare"

"'I would have been some quiet little chief-of-staff,' Joyce Kaufman told listeners on her WFTL-AM (850) radio show. 'It's gonna be your biggest nightmare that I didn't go quietly off to Washington.'"

"Ah, yes. The woman who urged 'bullets' over ballots would have certainly gone meek when she reached Capitol Hill to work for Congressman-elect Allen West." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Lisa, golubushka, check your sources, or, heck, read your own piece! What Ms. Kaufman said was that if ballots don't work to ensure the First Amendment, bullets will, not that bullets are *preferable* to ballots.

"Unquestioning reverence for the police is one of the more unfortunate inculcations in our formative years. If it were not for the police, lawlessness and chaos would rule; therefore, we owe our safety, our civilization, our very lives to the selflessness and dedication of the police; thus, police are our 'heroes.' So we were told, and so we believed." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right. [Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846)]
