"While elections officials in several Washington counties begin the long, tedious process of counting about a half-million ballots to find the votes necessary to propel anti-gun Sen. Patty Murray to a fourth term – more than 120,000 of those ballots are in King County, so hold your noses – across the country, gun owners are savoring some victories and one surprising defeat." ...

"Candidates backed by Gun Owners of America scored tremendous wins in Tuesday’s elections."

"In many cases, GOA was the ONLY national pro-gun organization to actively oppose Nancy Pelosi’s 'Blue Dog' Democrats."

"Our aggressive opposition to these Representatives – who are mistakenly considered to be somewhat conservative – was well worth the effort as Pelosi has now been reduced to minority status."

"You can go to the GOA website — at http://gunowners.org/goa-victories.htm — to see the dozens of new GOA-backed Senators and Representatives that will be serving you." ...

"Commentator JadeGold posted a comment to RF's post Gun Control Is Alive and Well and Living at Sharon High School, wherein she accuses gun rights activists of relying on 'fraudulent' arguments. JadeGold cites six specific examples from an allegedly endless list of erroneous pro-gun claims. Is it true? Do those of us that embrace gun rights live in a fraudulent fantasy world? JadeGold has utilized the rhetorical devise known as straw man argument. ... Let’s examine these claims one at a time." ...

TTAG Gun Doctor Examines the Ruger SR9-Series Pistols

"TTAG’s Gun Doctor writes: The SR-Series design is sound. The handgun has good clearances and ergonomics. I’ve seen the SR9 run a 400-round competition in 95+ degree weather in the sandy world of a state champship USPSA match. The conditions were so nasty that the gun was spitting grit out the sides of slide and striker channel, pushing sand out the top of the magazines between stages. Other competitors were tearing down and cleaning thousands of dollars in custom guns after each stage—just to try and make it through the next stage. Some did. A lot didn’t. The SR9 ran the entire event without a problem. That speaks volumes for the accurate and reliable little 400 dollar American made gun . . ." ...

"The best thing about slaving over a hot laptop for TTAG is the instant gratification I get from the TTAGencia, when they respond to my posts. Seriously. In what other media do you get that kind of feedback. Of course, it’s not all roses and champagne – you guys are ready willing and able to take me to task for any points I’ve mangled, overlooked, or just outright gotten wrong. To that end, I read the comments on my 10 Things You Never Thought Through about Concealed Carry with interest. Reading several of the comments, it made me realize that I’d missed a huge point, ironically the very one that got me to thinking about the topic to begin with. ... To wit:" ...

"Horse pistol. Smoke wagon. Hog leg. Shootin’ iron. The words carry potent symbolism, and conjure images of both the real and the Hollywood versions of the American West, with names like Sam Colt and Wild Bill Hickock, Jack Palance and Randolph Scott ... If there’s such a thing as the grumpy, cantankerous Grandpa Gun of the Wild West, it’s got to be the 1847 Colt Walker."

"The Walker was the first commercially-produced large caliber revolver, and it spawned a lineage of almost-as-huge pistols that bore the ominous, yet very cool title of Colt Dragoon. ..." ...

Submitter's Note: See it isn't the fault of the criminal who pullrd the trigger, nor can we question whether the 'victim' was himself a criminal. No, it is the eevil 'gun lobby' and manufacturers. So is this tofu-head going to blame Ford for DWI deaths?

"All of you proud 'real American' right-wingers ... How does it feel to be caught between the 'rock' of your 'love for the military' and the 'hard place' of your strict Constitutional 'right to free speech,' regarding your support for the taunting of the families burying their military dead?"

"Can you even begin to understand that the Founding Fathers, who did not mean for imbeciles like 'Squeaky Fromme,' Charles Hinkley, and the host of other assassins and schoolyard assailants, to have the 'right to bear arms,' in your 'hallowed' Second Amendment, did not mean for 'right to free speech' to apply to a handful of religiously fanatic hillbillies to slander the families of military dead, in the First Amendment?" ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Of course they meant it to cover despicable speech, that is the whole point. This does not mean, however, that a local Harley Club can't park right next to them and rev their engines while they are trying to speak. Oh, and slander is never protected speech. Idiot.

of a liability than a necessity. According to the Stop Handgun Violence organization 40% of American households with children have guns."1

"A gun in the home is 22 times more likely to be used in an unintentional shooting, than to be used to injure or kill in self-defense."2
-------

Submitter's Note: 1 - So?
2 - HORSEFEATHERS! Go back to the Kellerman study, a gun in the home is 43 times more likely yada-yada. Look at the flip side: In homes without a gun, people in the home were 99 times more likely to die violently than to kill a burglar.

"While Congress went backwards a step in diversity in regards to African American senators (there are now zero), the nation elected three more women as governors: Mary Fallin of Oklahoma, Nikki Haley of South Carolina, and Susana Martinez of New Mexico. Each woman is a Republican and each of their victories changed history in their state." ...

"Fallin wants to send a message that if Oklahoma had a boyfriend, it would be the 2nd Amendment - the right to bear arms. 'I believe that gun ownership rights in Oklahoma can and should be expanded,' Fallin wrote on her website. ..." ...

"House Majority Leader Holliman suffers defeat at hands of Grass Roots North Carolina …"

"For the first time since 1898, Republicans yesterday captured both chambers of the North Carolina General Assembly. Although results are not yet final, it appears the GOP will be in solid control of the NC House with at least 62 of 120 seats, and of the Senate with at least 28-30 of 50 seats. Preliminary assessments indicate a rout by pro-gun candidates with GRNC's highest 4-star (****) evaluation." ...

"One big win for gun owners in this election cycle is the gubernatorial story out of Oklahoma. Readers may remember the Oklahoma legislature had passed the Open Carry bill in 2010, only to be vetoed days later by the anti-gun Governor Brad Henry." ...

"Governor Henry's term has ended, however, and Mary Fallin, Republican candidate for Governor, has been declared the overwhelming winner tonight in the Governor’s race in Oklahoma. Fallin will be a very strong Second Amendment warrior for the state, if she lives up to her promises made before the campaign." ...

Gun Control Supporters From Both Parties Win Senate Seats

"November 3 - Supporters of common sense restrictions on guns, from both political parties, won a number of U.S. Senate seats yesterday."

"... Senator-Elect Dan Coats in Indiana was opposed by the National Rifle Association because of his votes for the Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban in the early 1990s, during his previous service in the Senate. Both of these wins were pickups by Republicans of Democratic seats." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: And yet in his ads and during debates, Coats presented himself as pro-Second Amendment. Are the Brady's saying that outside gun-control hellholes like Cook County and NYC, politicians must lie and present themselves as pro-gun in order to win?
