... "The writer then goes on to complain about how 'gun laws in Florida are obviously too lenient' and to lament the fact that 'taking on any constitutional amendment, especially any of the first 10, is a daunting task and one that almost never changes anything.' I was puzzled by that sentiment. Does the writer actually think that 'taking on' the Bill of Rights would be desirable, let alone a reasonable response to a promotion that has not, in fact, actually resulted in any wrongdoing? ..." ...

"Our Constitution's Second Amendment does not mention guns. It speaks to 'arms,' but the word 'militia' makes it impossible to understand today. So, let's forgot it entirely. Instead, we should focus on something constitutionally far more important."

"Our country has spent too much time on the concept of a right to bear arms and too little on our right to defend ourselves from attack. Our right of individual defense seems the core argument in our Constitution." ...

... "Because I am staking out a position so contrary to one advanced by people, like Dave, for whom I have a great deal of respect, I think it worthwhile to explain myself more fully--hence today's column."

"In a nutshell, I argue that to concede that mere possession of a gun turns what is already a crime into a 'worse' crime, is to concede that gun possession is a privilege (and a morally suspect privilege, to boot), and not a right. ..." ...

Copper, steel and bronze bore brushes can cause serious problems if you’re not careful. I was cleaning three rifles simultaneously the other day, a Borden Rimrock .300 Caribou, a Kimber 84M Montana 7mm-08 and a Remington Titanium Model 700 .260 Remington. As I had only two Tipton carbon rods in the shop, I had to change tips on one of them in order to get a tight fit for scrubbing with a bronze brush."

"Aware of the potential for getting an oversized brush stuck in a bore, I was careful to double check sizes. Perhaps not careful enough. ..." ...
