"The [NSSF] ... issued the following statement in response to study results from the [CDC], released by the North Dakota Department of Health, showing no evidence that lead or 'traditional' ammunition pose any health risk to those who consume game harvested meat."

"The CDC report on human lead levels of hunters in North Dakota has confirmed what hunters throughout the world have known for hundreds of years, that traditional ammunition poses no health risk to people and that the call to ban lead ammunition was nothing more than a scare tactic being pushed by anti-hunting groups."

"In looking at the study results, the average lead level of the hunters tested was lower than that of the average American. ..." ...

"Yeah, what better way to deter self-centered sociopaths than to make them even bigger celebrities on their turf than they already are? Think about it: We're inundated with programs like 'COPS' and 'America's Most Wanted.' TV reports and news accounts regularly plaster names, faces and exploits of fugitive suspects for all to see. And we're supposed to believe that this nonsense and waste of resources will prevent...what, exactly?"

"On Inauguration Day, the Obama Regime will be crowned ..."

"With one party firmly controlling the executive and legislative branches, their opponents conjure up different policies the Obama/Pelosi/Reid regime (who will be referred to as 'The Looters') could enact ..."

"One of the direst predictions is that The Looters would enact some type of gun control measure, such as another assault weapons ban. Such predictions range from a repeat of the ban on cosmetic devices such as bayonet lugs and flash suppressors and on large-capacity magazines, banning of semi-automatic firearms with a magazine capacity in excess of some arbitrary number, or even outright banning and confiscation of 'assault weapons' ..." ...

"Last week in this space I painted with a broad brush and general terms on the topic of armed revolt. The trouble with speaking in broad, general terms is that the author's general intent and the reader's general perception can turn out to be pretty far apart – generally speaking. That causes unnecessary conflict and is just sloppy writing. I'll try to do better. In this installment I'd like to try to clear up a few things and hopefully get you thinking about what matters to you."

"First, about last week's column: In no way did I intend to suggest that anyone who quotes Jefferson or wears a 'MOLON LAVE' T-shirt is just guff and bluster. I quote Jefferson and wear a 'MOLON LAVE' T-shirt and I'm absolutely serious about them. ..." ...

The Board of the Stone Mountain Memorial Association has repealed its long-standing ban on the carrying of firearms in Stone Mountain Park. In its place, the Board enacted an ordinance banning the possession of firearms for people without Georgia Firearms Licenses. People with GFLs no longer are disallowed from carrying, but they are required in the new ordinance to notify the park police “as soon as possible after entering the park” of the presence of the firearm. In addition, consuming alcohol is prohibited. GeorgiaCarry.Org is reviewing the revised ordinance and has not announced how the revisions will affect, if at all, GCO’s lawsuit against SMMA.

Do guns still matter?

During the Democratic primary, when Barack Obama told donors in San Francisco that 'bitter' voters in hardscrabble Pennsylvania 'cling to their guns and religion,' the words rang like music in his political opponents' ears. Obama foes hoped that the senator's inartful description of economically-strapped gun enthusiasts would cut his support from rural whites off at the knees."

"The comment also put an exclamation point on Obama's record on guns, which has drifted to the center since his days as an Illinois state senator. As the general election heated up, the [NRA] announced an eye-popping $15 million ad campaign intended to serve as a loudspeaker for suspicions about Obama's alleged hidden intention to limit gun ownership." ...

"Greene County voters approved a conceal-and-carry advisory referendum on Tuesday's ballot, joining 10 other counties where the advisory passed."

"'We believe state legislators should enact concealed carry legislation. Illinois and Wisconsin are the only states that don't allow citizens their Second Amendment right,' Illinois Carry spokeswoman Valinda Rowe said Wednesday."

"Such a law allows licensed, qualified adults to carry firearms. In Greene County, voters passed the advisory question by 3,457 to 1,999, or nearly two-to-one in favor of such a law. For more information, go to the supporters' Web site, www.illinoiscarry.com." ...

"Lose a gun in Cleveland and fail to report it to police and you could face a $250 fine and 30 days in jail. But in the 12 years that ordinance has been on Cleveland's books, only two people have been taken to court for failing to report a lost or stolen gun."

"That experience, and those of other cities, suggests that Pittsburgh's proposed ordinance on reporting lost or stolen guns and others cropping up all over the state and nation warrant neither the fear they are engendering in foes, nor the hope they inspire in advocates." ...

The 5th Fleet is the US naval command covering the Red Sea, Arabian Sea, Persian/Arabian Gulf and the east African coast as far south as Kenya."

"As polls and pundits in recent weeks increasingly pointed to the election of Barack Obama as the next president, scores of Utahns flocked to gun stores."

"Gun stores are reporting a spike in gun sales, and they say the trend is driven by customers who are afraid Barack Obama will crack down on gun sales as president."

"At the Downsville Gun Shop, Tim Hafer is already seeing change. He says he’s almost tripled his sales in the past few days."

"In a normal two-day span, he sells two or three guns, but in the two days following the elections, he's sold over 20. He’s noticed increases in sales of semi-automatic guns, pistols and revolvers."

"Obama supports renewing the expired Federal Assault Weapons Ban. If renewed, the ban would require all U.S. gun manufacturers stop making semi-automatic assault weapons."

"Now the demand for the guns could mean higher prices." ...

"Can there by any doubt that American gun rights are under assault? It may not be a direct assault against our constitutional right to bear arms. No, it's more like a legislative end-run around the Second Amendment." ...

"California leads the nation in legislation intended to drive all guns and gun dealers out of the state. If a direct assault on the Second Amendment won't work, the next best approach is a legislative end-run, saddling law-abiding gun owners and dealers with layers of bureaucracy."

"And, the strategy seems to be working."

"Federal courts ruled states can enact reasonable gun regulations.

At what point, though, does reasonable regulation cross the line and infringe upon our constitutional right ..." ...

"As the Albany Gun Violence Task Force wraps up its work, it will make 17 recommendations on how to deter youths from shooting each other. But the report won't address how illegal guns end up in their hands."

"The report, expected to be sent to Mayor Jerry Jennings and the Common Council Friday, will focus on everything from crisis teams to respond to shootings to creating a program using ex-inmates to dissuade violence."

"But task force members said the issue of tracking guns goes well beyond the city's borders and is a problem that cannot be addressed legislatively at this time." ...

"'White bitches. F--- McCain. You white police can't do nothing,' 19-year-old Celita Hart taunted officers as she stood with a throng of Obama supporters ...
