"'What’s that?' the third-grader asked, pointing to the Kydex holster poking out from under my apron. I kneeled down next to the table so we were eye to eye and could talk privately. 'It’s my gun holster,' I said, covering it discreetly as I spoke. 'But it’s empty. We’re not allowed to carry guns in the school.' 'We don’t need one here though, right?' he half-asked, half-stated. 'We’re safe here, right?' I nodded my head. What else was I supposed to do? Tell him the crowded lunchroom is a potential free fire zone? That the nearest good guy with a gun is God knows where? Of course not. It’s not his job to vigilant. It’s mine. And I am. Vigilant and unarmed, surrounded by life so precious that contemplating its violent extinction threatens to make me violently ill. And yet, what can I do? Well . . ." ...

"I just picked up a Smith and Wesson M&P9 a week or so ago. Why did I get a handgun? Well, it wasn’t because the 'Speed Freak Killers' lived and buried some of their victims about a mile from my home. It’s not just because we routinely drive through Lodi, Stockton and that lonely stretch of Highway 12 between here and the Santa Rosa area ... It surely isn’t because a 24-year-old veteran of the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office put seven bullets into a 13-year-old boy brandishing a plastic AK-47. And last of all, it most definitely had nothing to do with the Second Amendment. Like most gun owners, my reasons are my own."

"Now because I admire them, let’s say I, Jerry Tuck, am a teacher and I have headaches and hear voices. ..." ...

"A Virginia reminder: Election day is [Tuesday], and it’s crunch time for Ken Cuccinelli (left above) and Mark Obenshain (right above). Clinton bag man Terry McAuliffe has outspent Cuccinelli (thanks to Bloomberg) by 10:1. As a result, he still holds a slim margin in the polls. Projected turnouts are as low as 30 percent, and the campaigns have 40 percent as the goal, so with numbers that low, every vote makes a big impact. With both sides concentrating heavily on health care in the last couple weeks, the gubernatorial election is seen by some to be a referendum on Obamacare, and as such could have influence well into the 2014 elections. Make your vote count, if not for you, then for the momentum it could give to the rest of us." ...

"Non-lead ammunition supply issues across the nation are prompting the Arizona Game and Fish Department to remind hunters in the California condor’s core range that they can still help reduce the amount of lead available to the birds by removing gut piles from the field.

"Tyler’s ranch is a geographical oddity: every single time I go there, it gets more beautiful. It was a weekend much like this one that finally convinced me to move to Texas, and the frequency with which scenes like this one happen keeps me happily planted in my adoptive state. There’s something magical about spending all day in the wilderness, enjoying the beauty of nature, then shooting some guns and eating fresh free-range meat. And I feel like this one picture captured that feeling pretty well. But there’s one more picture that sums up the weekend’s activities . . ." ...

"The Associated Press reported this morning that alleged Los Angeles International Airport gunman Paul Anthony Ciancia, apparently intended his attack to 'kill a Transportation Security Administration officer and show how easy it is to get a gun into an airport.'"

"This new revelation comes less than 24 hours after anti-gun California Sen. Dianne Feinstein predictably used Friday’s shooting to push her personal gun control agenda during an appearance on yesterday’s 'Face The Nation,' where she once again called for a ban on so-called 'assault weapons.'" ...

"While the details and facts surrounding the reported shooting at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) continue to shift, the establishment media’s dangerous but easily predictable narrative is already in full swing. In essence, it goes like this: Anyone and everyone who harbors 'anti-government' views, expresses opposition to what global leaders refer to as the 'New World Order,' or advocates for honest money, is a potential terrorist in waiting. The demonization of vast swaths of the American public is now accelerating, but in the process, the establishment press is exposing itself as clueless, out-of-touch, or deliberately deceptive at worst." ...

... "The notion of Feinstein's possession of a soul is a debate for another day. Let's instead look at her contention that by naming the rifle model the M&P15, with M&P standing for 'military and police,' Smith and Wesson is tacitly acknowledging that this firearm is appropriate only for the government's hired muscle."

"What a peculiar idea. Smith and Wesson, keep in mind, has put 'military and police' into the names of lots of guns, including revolvers, dating all the way back to 1899, with the Model 10, once named the Smith & Wesson Military & Police."

"Similarly, an iconic Colt revolver is the Detective Special, which has served both detectives and private citizens well for over 85 years." ...

"The Daily Beast’s Eleanor Clift reports that Bloomberg has put up six figures in support of Murphy’s campaign to unseat Republican Del. Barbara Comstock."
"Comstock has a top rating from the National Rifle Association, and Murphy started badgering Bloomberg’s people in New York months ago to seek their help in a race that could turn on commonsense gun reform. She was thrilled to receive $100,000 from Bloomberg’s PAC, directed contributions from Bloomberg’s PAC ..." ...

"An East Bay city is weighing new rules for gun shops. Those rules would impact where new gun stores could be located. Owners and employees would also have to pass criminal background checks. Critics say it's another step in eroding Second Amendment rights."

"The mayor of Pleasant Hill says his proposal is really all about gun safety. These debates always turn into the fundamental issue of gun control and the Second Amendment. That's likely to happen at City Hall on Monday night with a packed audience of gun right and gun control advocates." ...
 

Supreme Court on Gun Control: Waiting and Watching, for Now

"Gun control lives. On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from a man barred from owning a firearm because of a 45-year-old misdemeanor assault conviction. As Bloomberg News’s high court guru, Greg Stohr, notes, the justices have repeatedly declined to take up gun-rights appeals over the last three years. The practical effect of this non-action is that the Supremes have let stand lower-court rulings preserving various restrictions on civilian gun ownership."

"Wait a second, you may be saying to yourself, hasn’t the Supreme Court been on a pro-gun-rights tear? And now the justices have gone passive on the topic? Let’s step back and look more closely." ...

"The U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up a new gun-rights case, turning away an appeal from a man barred from owning a firearm because of a misdemeanor assault conviction 45 years ago."

"The appeal by Jefferson Wayne Schrader contended that the ban violated the Constitution’s Second Amendment, which protects the right to bear arms." ...

"Schrader was convicted of misdemeanor assault and battery after getting into a fistfight with a gang member in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1968. He received a $100 fine and no jail time. Since then, he says, he served in Vietnam, received an honorable discharge from the Navy and has had no meaningful encounters with law enforcement in the last 45 years." ...

"The Sanford Police Department is backing off a proposal to ban Neighborhood Watch members from carrying guns, but it still wants volunteers to leave their firearms at home and will make that recommendation at a community meeting Tuesday night, police Chief Cecil Smith said Monday."

"'We originally came out with a stern, 'You should not,' Smith said. 'We took a second look at it.'"

"Smith now recommends that people forgo their guns while they are performing their Neighborhood Watch duties. Smith said he could legally have dictated a ban, but he decided it was better to include people rather than to exclude them." ...

We hope that holds."

"When two of the four major network affiliates in Seattle ... look at the change in the Seattle public library’s policy on firearms as they are doing today - one day after a forum was held at a local church regarding downtown crime and public safety - one might think there is something up."

"Reporters from both stations noted the concerns of people who ask, 'Why should anyone have a gun in a library?' There is only one answer: 'Why not?'"

"If a legally-armed private citizen is minding his or her own business, at a library or any other public venue, what is there to be concerned about? The bearing of arms is protected under both the state and federal constitutions, while feeling good in the library is not." ...
