"Evergreen State gun control proponents are celebrating passage of the billionaire-backed Initiative 594 while gun rights advocates supporting rival Initiative 591 are wondering what comes next as Tuesday night ballot returns point to a loss for their measure."

"At the headquarters of the [CCRKBA], grassroots activists are taking some consolation in the change of power in Washington, D.C., and what appears to be continued Republican control of the State Senate, and the fact that I-591 won in a majority of the state's counties. But now the test will be whether the new law will be enforced, or whether it will be unenforceable, as many in law enforcement have contended. ..." ...

"The AR-15 platform is fantastic, partly because of the ability to swap from one caliber to the next with very few parts changes. That also can make it a little bit dangerous. What if someone tries to shove a magazine of 5.56 ammo into your .300 BLK gun? The day could end in tears. Or worse. That’s where a new nifty idea from Faxon comes in: magazine bands . . ." ...

"csmonitor.com gets it! The mainstream media have shunned the 'g' word, but the Christian Science Monitor reports that gun voters were a big factor in last night’s Republican-dominated mid-terms. 'Gun owners in Colorado and Connecticut, two states that passed sweeping gun-control laws in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., have helped turn Democratic gubernatorial incumbents into poll-trailers – underscoring the extent to which the evolution of the Second Amendment is intermingling with America’s voting habits.'

"The mid-term report is in. Former pig castratrix Jonie Ernst has won Iowa’s Senate seat. The Republican Party has picked-up six seats in the Senate, enough to control a majority of both the House of Representatives and the United States Senate. Despite the fact that voters angered by the post-Newtown push for gun control laws played a significant role in states where Republicans wrested power from Democrats (e.g. Colorado, Connecticut and Maryland), the mainstream media (e.g. CNN, MSNBC and Fox News) never once said the word 'gun.' ..."

"On the gubernatorial level, in Arizona, pro-Second Amendment candidate Doug Ducey (R) beat gun control candidate Fred DuVaul (D). And in Florida, pro-Second Amendment incumbent Rick Scott (R) beat gun control candidate Charlie Crist. These victories were enhanced by the fact that Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly endorsed DuVal and Giffords' gun control PAC gave $100,000 to Crist's campaign." ...

... "Murderer--survivalist, born to kill, taught in school, admired. Picked up a shotgun and fired. It will come in handy. It will give you a job someday. It will place you, this skill, in the history books--ill-legendary killer, if it is you let it be over. But will real madness ever be over? Will guns always be available to the insane? The mentally ill have access, and they should not. The privilege of the second amendment demands competency, the mentally ill should be treated and not tred--but they should never have guns--this murder was psychotic and perhaps preventable." ...
