"The City of Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation. Up until a few months ago, it was illegal for a private citizen to own or possess a handgun anywhere within the city, including in one's own home. For 2010, Chicago also holds another distinction. More Chicago Police Officers were killed by gunfire this year than any other police agency in the nation. The city also boasts one of the highest violent crime rates in the country, with 1 in 89 residents being victims of violent crime last year." ...

"Sitting in front of the fireplace last night, sipping an eggnog-enhanced alcoholic coffee-based beverage, I suddenly asked myself 'This tastes really good. Why don't I drink eggnog all year?' And then I remembered why: it's about as healthy as an aperitif consisting of melted butter mixed with Type F automatic transmission fluid. With a little bamboo umbrella in it. Eartha Kitt purred 'Santa Baby' through my stereo speakers, and this got me to wondering 'What guns and gear should I beg RF, to send me for testing and reviewing?' Could Farago Claus slip an AR under my tree, if only for a week or two? If not, what about . . ." ...
 

Gun Review: Ruger SR40 w/Galloway Precision Trigger (video available)

"My initial review of the Ruger SR40 condemned the gun's trigger an epic fail. Not only was the SR40¡äs trigger horrible in and of itself¡ªgritty, stacky and unpredictable¡ªit was a sick joke compared to the fantabulous go-pedal on the Ruger SR9c. The SR40's trigger was so ergonomically disastrous that I returned the handgun to Ruger thinking it was a mechanical typo. The second gun was just as bad. So I sent the whole kit and kaboodle to our Gun Doctor, who diagnosed SR40 MKII with a bad case of WTF. ... The good Doctor advised me to send the weapon to the Ruger mavens at Galloway Precision for a re-do. And so I did. Here's what Eric Galloway did to the gun . . ." ...
 

American Rifleman’s Bug-Out Gun: Armalite AR-10. Huh?

"As Captain John Raguso’s AR-10 review indicated, TTAG hearts the big ass Armalite rifle. If I was in an honest-to-God firefight, I’d be quite comfortable shouldering an AR10. Well, as comfortable as a person can be with bullets flying hither and yon. But choosing the AR-10 as Your One Survival Gun is madness. There’s a lot of bad craziness in Daniel T. McElrath American Rifleman blog post . . ." ...

'The rifles were being assembled and prepared for this week's operator and maintainer training exercises to be conducted by 1/3 Squad Automatic Weapon gunners and armorers. The hope is that the M27 IAR will be able to someday replace the heavier, less maneuverable M249 SAW in most situations.' Hope? You mean plan.

"I like things that work well. Whatever it is, it had better work every time. 'It' can be anything – a car, tools, electronics, firearms, bank cards, whatever. I don't have the time or the patience to deal with finicky possessions. A finicky firearm can be a nuisance, but it can also get you killed. So when it came time to choose my home-defense howitzer, I had my work cut out for me. Should it be semi or pump, full-size stock or pistol grip, 12-ga or 20-gauge? No matter what, I had to find one that performed to my strict level of standards. Period." ...

"Let me begin by saying this: The rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment are vitally important. Guns rights allow us as a people to protect ourselves from a government that would behave in an unjust way. Gun rights grant us self-sufficiency, the ability to provide meals for ourselves and our families."

"This being said, however, guns have no place in schools." ...

"As Tim Lynch has already blogged — and as Cato is currently featuring on its front page, today is Bill of Rights Day. But of course, this is less of a big deal than Constitution Day (September 17, when we release the Cato Supreme Court Review at an annual conference) — because the Bill of Rights is essentially redundant of the Constitution’s original structural protections: Whenever the government exceeds its constitutionally granted powers, it violates rights of some sort." ...

... "The most disturbing aspect of the raids, however, was that police didn't bother to obtain search warrants. They didn't have to. The raids were conducted in conjunction with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Despite the guns and handcuffs, under Florida law these were licensure inspections, not criminal searches. So no warrant was necessary. Such 'administrative searches' are a disturbingly common end run around the Fourth Amendment." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Our Founding Fathers were proud that Americans were trusted with arms because they knew that only when people are armed could they truly be thought of as free citizens. And that's where the circle closes. Those who want to deprive you of your right to keep and bear arms are intending to deprive you of your freedom, period. Like the criminals their policies encourage, these elitists know that it is always best to disarm victims before you enslave them. — Charley Reese
