"'What was it, specifically,' I was asked later in numerous emails and phone calls, 'that Tina Brown cut out?' From sources I had a pretty good idea ... But that was only based on trusted but secondhand sources."

"Well, now I can answer that question. Sipsey Street has obtained a copy of the unedited article written by R.M. Schneiderman." ...

... "I recently attended a conference where one of the speakers informed us of the true intent of the militia. He pointed out that the militia is not our government or our military. Too often we think of a militia as our military or police force, but I want to remind everyone that we are the militia."

"We the People have been charged to protect our freedoms. You might be thinking why would We the People need to protect our freedoms? Isn’t that what the military is for? To a certain extent, yes."

"Fall is time when the thoughts of many Americans turns to hunting. In fact, when I arrived at my sister’s house yesterday for a Thanksgiving visit with the family, my nephew was unloading a five point buck he’d taken just that morning. But when we think of hunting, it also brings up the frequently uncomfortable (for Democrats) subject of gun control." ...

"Warren Zevon famously asked his father for lawyers, guns and money. The latter two are perpnip. If you’re carrying or holding firearms or folding, you’re a target for a violent attack. When you go to places where these items are acquired, traded or displayed, there’s a strong possibility that someone will seek to relieve you of them without asking your permission or exchanging anything worthwhile in return. To wit this from [kirh.com]: 'Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert said 73-year-old Kenneth Payne of Wagoner [above] was shot multiple times and had at least four guns stolen around 8:30 a.m. while he was at the Fort Gibson Wildlife Management Area Shooting Range east of Wagoner on Toppers Road . . .'" ...

"Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen) announced Friday she has introduced a legislative resolution condemning the 'National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011,' saying that the federal proposal would undermine New Jersey’s gun control laws and states' traditional role in deciding the best gun control strategies for each individual state."

"'Historically, states have been given the right of self-determination when it comes to gun control,' Weinberg said. 'Regardless of how you feel about New Jersey's gun control laws, the federal legislation which was recently passed by the House would set a terrible precedent, and opens the door for Second Amendment activists elsewhere in the country to override New Jersey's own laws. ...'" ...

"Most of you already know my opinion of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, so this column should come as no surprise to you. From day one, Holder’s decisions and practices have left a bad taste in my mouth." ...

"On Nov. 8, Holder testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, answering questions regarding a flawed arms trafficking investigation called Operation Fast and Furious. According to investigators, the operation used a practice known as 'gun walking,' in which federal agents allowed individuals to purchase illegal weapons and freely walk away with them in the hope that the guns could be traced to arms-trafficking ringleaders." ...

"'For instance, the February 4 letter from the Justice Department said that there wasn't anything to 'Fast and Furious' and it was that way even after we showed them documents showing them they were wrong,' Grassley says. 'They still wrote us letters in March, saying there wasn't anything to it.'" ...

"'Holder’s proclaimed ignorance leaves Americans to draw one of two conclusions: Either he is guilty of extraordinary bureaucratic incompetence or he is guilty of a cover-up meant to shield him from the consequences of an operation that has left at least one federal agent dead and continues to imperil many more,' Perry wrote in a Washington Times op-ed published on Monday. 'Either way, it is high time for Mr. Holder to step down. If he refuses to resign, Mr. Obama must fire him immediately.'" ...

"To the mostly Democratic residents of South Florida's cities and suburban communities, it may seem like a common-sense move to prevent gun violence."

"Elsewhere in Florida, it's more likely viewed as the latest liberal lunacy from the People's Republic of Broward. You can lump Palm Beach County in the liberal territory as well, in the mind of many Floridians."

"The elected Democrats who make up the overwhelming majority of Broward's delegation to the Legislature, along with two Palm Beach County counterparts, are proposing legislation to undo a brand new state law that forces local governments to repeal their bans on firearms in government buildings and parks." ...

... "It’s hard to imagine a more legitimate self-defence scenario than this. An older man, inside his own home, has already been attacked and seen his property destroyed when he uses a measured degree of force against the attacker, ending the confrontation. Legally, it’s textbook perfect, and Foster did exactly the right thing to protect himself and his property. Except for one minor detail: The handgun was not properly registered."

"According to reports, Foster had owned the gun for more than 40 years ... Foster could have registered it when the current firearms laws went into effect in the 1990s. He declined to do so, and will serve 9 months of house arrest after pleading guilty to the reduced charge of assault with a weapon." ...
