... "If media prognostications pan out, we’ll see what jubilant Republicans do with their new-found power, and we’ll see what lame ducks do before what remains of their power drains out. And come the victors taking the spoils, we’ll see if all the smoke and fury amounts to real change, or signifies nothing -- except perhaps confirmation of Carroll Quigley’s cynical 'throw the rascals out' admission." ...

"For those of you who follow TTAG on Facebook and Instagram, you probably saw that I nabbed myself a pretty tasty little buddy this past weekend during the opening day of deer season in Texas. The gun I used for that shot was the same as last year, but there was one difference: the ammunition. I was using Lehigh Defense’s 110gr Controlled Chaos round instead of my traditional Barnes 110gr, and after putting it to the test I think I’m ready to review it. Quick warning: this article contains a somewhat graphic picture of what happens when this round impacts a deer . . ." ...

"FNH USA is known for making some amazing rifle barrels. I’ve seen their shop firsthand and was extremely impressed, and having shot a SCAR for a couple years, I know what that quality manufacturing can do. And I’m not the only one who adores their barrels — people have been known to buy their upper receivers from a certain online shop specifically to use off-label FN barrels in their rifle builds. It looks like FN has taken notice and will now start selling their barrels direct to the public, and at a remarkably reasonable price. Presser after the jump . . ." ...

"IWI, the people who brought us the TAVOR bullpup rifle, have now set their sights on importing another Israeli classic. The Galil is Israel’s famed souped-up AK-47 clone, with some mechanical and aesthetic improvements over the original. I know a couple AK fanatics who have been waiting for a true Israeli Galil to become available in the states, and it looks like their wait is almost over. According to a press release (and Tim’s video) a rifle and pistol will be available sometime in February of 2015 — just about four months away now. Make the jump for the presser . . ." ...

"Shannon Watts is the head of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (a wholly-owned subsidiary of billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety). Ms. Watts claims she supports the Second Amendment. 'We are in no way anti-gun,' she asserts in the video above. So here’s the question: in what way is MDA pro-gun? What gun rights does the 'common sense gun laws' group support? In the clip (not magazine) above, the former Monsanto PR maven mentions firearms used for warfare and hunting. What about armed self-defense? To really nail that down, can some jobbing journo please ask Ms. Watts . . ." ...

... "Regarding the first point, it appears from the story that Brown was the aggressor in this case, and if that is the case, it is a reach to use the term victim* to describe him. Such use of the term lends a connotation of innocence to the decedent."

"As to point two, Stand Your Ground Law means one has no duty to retreat. In this case, as the story goes, Johnson had already retreated to the point that he was locked in a bedroom." ...

"Mike Weisser is my favorite gun dealer. The longtime proprietor of the Ware Gun Shop in Ware, Mass., Weisser, 70, estimates he has sold more than 40,000 guns in his career as a wholesaler and retailer. ..."

"'I love guns,' he told me unabashedly when we spoke the other day. With a chuckle, he added, 'I just bought one yesterday.'"

"There’s something else about Weisser: He strongly believes that the country needs a new approach to guns and gun violence — an approach that is more data-driven, less hyperbolic, and that emphasizes the public health aspect of gun violence. Using the pen name Mike the Gun Guy, Weisser writes a blog at The Huffington Post that encapsulates his approach. ..." ...

"The Second Amendment. To those in the United States, this is known as the right to any American 'to keep and bear arms.' This amendment was adopted on December 15, 1789 as part of the original ten amendments, known as the Bill of Rights. This amendment has been a significant piece of America’s beliefs for almost three hundred years. However, during the past sixty five years, there have been major incidents which have cost many Americans their lives due to it. With that loss of life, the question comes: is it worth it?"

"These events are well known around this nation, but still, no real steps are made to restrict the amendment. ..." ...

"In an NBC News report, titled 'Lead Poisoning: A Hidden Danger at Shooting Ranges,' filed under the 'Kid’s Health' section, reporter Susan Donald James reports that many people, including children, suffer from lead poisoning after coming in contact with lead bullets. This is a 'hidden danger,' as opposed to the much more overt danger of kids handling deadly weapons that emit flying projectiles that instantly murder people. Like we needed any more possible dangers at shooting ranges."

"Apparently, lead poisoning at gun ranges is easy to contract, and often results in children becoming infected via putting their fingers in their eyes or their mouths after touching an object with bullet residue. ..." ...

"With Halloween upon us, the [CSGV] decided to ratchet up the gore (and poor taste) in their latest series of anti-gun ads."

"Mischaracterized by CSGV as public service announcements, the only service these grisly ads provide to the public is alerting the electorate to the gun control community’s increasingly angry, inflammatory, and judgmental tactics."

"One of the ads depicts a man enjoying a meal in a diner, when he comes across a newspaper article about a shooting. The camera then pans to the man’s blood-soaked hands, while a narrator states, 'You did not buy the guns. You did not load the bullets. You did not empty the chamber. But you voted; voted for politicians that refused to support common sense gun laws. ...'" ...

"An appearance by an author who is a Second Amendment advocate was canceled an hour before she was scheduled to appear because officials at the TCU Bookstore said they could not accommodate a last minute request for armed security."

"Dana Loesch, who wrote 'Hands Off My Gun,' wrote on her website that she felt 'uncomfortable gambling with my own, my family's, or readers/listeners's security,' by attending the signing without security."

"David George, department manager of trade books at the TCU Bookstore said they could not meet Loesch's request in the short amount of time." ...

"Since TCU is a no-carry campus, Loesch said on her website she was prohibited to bring her own gun." ...

"'Pepper spray is a good step in the right direction, but I think it is not the best way that we should take it,' Soltis said."

"Soltis said that every citizen should have the right to carry weapons. He plans on working with county elected officials and like-minded students to make this a reality." ...

"Dean Merkle has a different take."

"'I believe that the university has a right to set its policies to include a no weapons policy,' Merkle said. 'I do not believe that opening any campus to people carrying guns ... is a good idea. I see very little that is positive about that.'" ...

"The district will now discuss its options at a school board meeting Monday night. For now, Huron Valley Schools say any instance of open carry will implement its emergency procedures, which includes calling 911, and having an officer approval the entry of the individual with the firearm" ...

"With the midterm elections less than 24 hours away, it is important for red state and pro-Second Amendment voters to remember the gun-control votes cast by Democrat Senators including Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), and Mark Udall (D-CO)."

"All four of these senators are in red states or in states that vote like red states when gun rights are on the line. Yet all four voted for the Manchin-Toomey gun control bill in April 2013."

"That measure was pushed by Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) in the wake of the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary, although Manchin himself admitted the legislation would not have stopped Sandy Hook from happening." ...

"After failing to secure gun control at the Supreme Court, the U.S. Congress, and the vast majority of state legislatures around the country, are millionaire and billionaire-funded state-level initiatives the next phase of gun control?"

"Think about it: Just days after the December 14, 2012, Sandy Hook attack, Democrats began pushing ammunition magazine capacity bans and an 'assault weapons' ban that included a ban on numerous shotguns and other firearms. They soon found a willing gun control advocate in Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), who formulated legislation adding expanded background checks and a ban on private gun sales to the other gun control measures." ...

Gun control advocates, such as Mayor Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety and former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ Americans for Responsible Solutions, have both been active and have spent an unprecedented amount of money in races across the country."

"According to reports, Mayor Bloomberg’s PAC (Independence USA) has expended about $5 million this election cycle. Americans for Responsible Solutions has spent almost $7 million this year, with $4.2 million going towards efforts that specifically attack Republican candidates. ..." ...

... "Kim for Assembly, District 65"

"Young Kim has stood up for education reform, supporting charter schools ... Business-friendly policies are high on her priority list, including more bearable tax policy and regulatory reform. Further, Ms. Kim’s opponent, Sharon Quirk-Silva, has time and again showed herself an opponent of businesses and taxpayers. Ms. Quirk-Silva promoted burdensome regulations ... and has been a constant foe of the Second Amendment rights of Californians. One-party rule is rarely healthy for a free people, and this is especially true in the race between Ms. Kim and Ms. Quirk-Silva. The Register encourages a vote to send Young Kim to the Assembly."

"Gun control is also expected to be an issue in the runoff. The Georgia legislature approved the nation's most permissive gun law March 21. ..."

"Perdue, a hunter, was endorsed by the National Rifle Association, this summer. 'The Second Amendment is not about hunting,' he said in his acceptance. 'It is about the right to protect our families, our property and even our country.'" ...

Winning his last election by only 2 percent, the District 40 of Lansing and Leavenworth, Bradford faces the same opponent, democrat Linda Johnson. Serving on the education committee, Bradford voted in favor of the education-funding bill. His campaign is heavily focused on promoting small government, as well as being pro-life and in support of the second amendment. Johnson is also heavily in favor of education and stated that she thinks it’s vital that Kansas keep a focus on balancing the budget and restoring its fiscal responsibility." ...

"When a poll shows that 81 percent of voters in South Carolina ... agree that domestic abusers have no business possessing guns, it’s worth noting."

"And it’s worth doing something about." ...

"But it would be a grave mistake for the [House] committee to become mired in a debate over the right to bear arms for violent people who have demonstrated that they are not able or willing to act responsibly."

"If a law enforcement officer is called to a scene of domestic abuse and determines there is a risk that the abuser might do further harm, he should have the authority to remove firearms from the house – even if it is only until the case goes before a judge who should decide whether to return the guns or not." ...

"An ordinance intended to keep people from getting hit by stray bullets will undergo a public hearing on Thursday, Nov. 6. But Township Committeeman Richard Dodds says the township is still looking for a better way to achieve that protection."

"The proposal would prohibit any hunting or shooting within 450 feet of a township park, school grounds or playground. Any shooting range already existing in that zone could be grandfathered in, but it would have to be registered with the township and designed according to exacting National Rifle Association specifications." ...
