"Martin Albright, a TTAG commenter, had some questions regarding some points in my Feeding The Trolls essay. And giving the answers the justice they deserve requires a little more than the comment section will allow. So let’s get on with it, shall we? When I asked how one reconciled permit laws with the SCOTUS ruling in Murdock v. Pennsylvania which forbade states from charging a fee 'for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution' Martin asked:"
"Didn’t you just answer your own question? The 2nd amendment guarantees you the right to own (keep and bear) arms, but not necessarily the right to carry them concealed on your person." ...

"‘Twas the night before Christmas, with a chill wind a-blowing

A glance out the window confirmed it was snowing

I was out in the workshop, cranking hard on the press,

The bullets were Nosler; the dies? RCBS!"



"My new Lyman tumbler was shining the brass

As hard flakes of white stuff kept tapping the glass

A glance at the mercury showed the temperature was dropping

And it seemed a good plan that I soon would be stopping" ...

"This week the FBI released data showing that violent crime in the United States fell 6.4 percent in the first half of this year compared to the same time period in 2010. The data also indicated a 3.7 percent drop in property crime."

"The FBI statistics undermine a favorite argument of anti-gun groups and some mainstream media that 'more guns equal more crime,' especially when you consider that the continuing decrease in violent crime parallels record firearm sales." ...

Buying a gun from Gunbroker

"Over the last couple of days, I’ve mentioned in a fairly roundabout fashion that I don’t particularly like buying guns from Gunbroker. The problem isn’t actually Gunbroker’s issue per se, because they don’t control the actual transactional side of the gun purchase. For those not familiar, here’s the process of buying a gun from Gunbroker." ...

Submitter's Note: I have bought at least a dozen items off of Gunbroker and the only problem I ever had was when someone sent the item to an old address (which I hadn't updated on Gunbroker).

What Was That About Stopping Power?
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Trillions of electrons – and tens of thousands of gallons of ink, before that – have been spilled in the never-ending debate over stopping power. People have nearly come to blows over which caliber is the most effective. It seems safe to assume that the majority of shooters are convinced that bigger is always better. 'I wouldn't be caught dead carrying anything with a caliber that doesn't start with a 4.' How many times have you read that one? Or heard it at the range? I'm a photographer and the same thing happens when the question is cameras. ... But as it turns out, guns are very much like cameras. No matter what the brand – or caliber – the one you have with you is always better than the one you don't…" ...

Gun Review: Kimber Solo Carry

"Let’s get this out of the way right now: the black-and-silver Kimber Solo Carry is one of the prettiest little all-metal 9mm mini-pistols ever made, second only in appearance to the all-stainless Solo Carry STS. Because other pocket nines have polymer frames, there’s not a lot of competition for title of prettiest all-metal mini-9. But still, the Solo Carry is a great looking gun that’s perfectly proportioned and loaded with quality touches. Pictures can’t do it justice. It’s so pretty that I wanted to love it the minute I saw it, which was a complete 180° turn for me. Before I saw it, I wanted to hate it." ...

"Historians have long debated who was the first person to call the U.S. Senate the 'world's greatest deliberative body.' Soon we may ask who was the last person to believe it. Our dysfunctional Congress has repeatedly failed to perform its duties under the Constitution to pass a budget, to advise and consent on presidential nominations, and, perhaps most tragically, to curb illegal handgun violence." ...

Fast and Furious facts

"I am disturbed by statements from Plain Dealer reader Jeff Longo (Letters, Saturday) who condemns U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder as an 'enemy of the Constitution' over the Justice Department's attempted Fast and Furious weapons sting in Mexico. Longo plays fast and loose with the facts in libeling an official whose 28 years of public service have been recognized by presidents from both political parties."

"In characterizing the admittedly flawed sting operation as 'an attack our Second Amendment rights,' Longo conveniently fails to mention the overwhelming number of guns purchased here legally that are later found in the hands of Mexican drug cartels. ..." ...

"There was a good case to be made for letting concealed-carry permit holders bring guns into certain city-owned facilities, rather than continue to ban them across the board. But the majority of Wichita City Council members voted Tuesday to allow handguns at 111 of 390 city sites without bothering to formally consult with citizens and make that case."

"It may be obvious to [those] council members ... that the Second Amendment guarantees a right to carry a handgun while playing a city golf course, strolling through a city park, watching a youth soccer game or visiting a fire station. As of Tuesday’s vote, Wichitans with concealed-carry permits can do just that at city sites."

"But it's less obvious to the public ..." ...

"There is one old lady in Florida whom no one will mess with again. She was able to fight off a gunman using only her guts and a metal cane."

"... 80-year-old Josefa Lopez was getting into the backseat of her daughter's SUV Monday afternoon when a man suddenly appeared. He grabbed the 61-year-old daughter's arm and dragged her out of the vehicle. He then pistol-whipped her, leaving her on the ground bleeding from the face."

"'I thought she was dead,' Lopez said in Spanish. 'I yelled at [the gunman], 'I am going to kill you, [son of a b----]!' ...'"

"Fortunately she was not dead, but Lopez charged at him, swinging her cane. He actually fired a shot at her but missed. He then took off in a getaway car." ...

"Gun Owners of America has sent a Second Amendment Questionnaire to every Presidential candidate for this election year."

"We've gotten them back from several of the candidates — even Newt Gingrich, after I met with him earlier this month to ask why he hadn't sent his back. But we haven't received one from either Rick Perry or Mitt Romney."

"The fact that Romney is not getting his questionnaire back is understandable, since he has been all over the map on gun ownership. Recently he's sounding pro-gun, but his history is anything but that."

"Rick Perry, however, has a solid record on the Second Amendment as Governor of Texas, so why isn't he getting his questionnaire back to GOA? ..." ...

"We hate to say it, but in the case of endangered Calfornia condors and lead poisoning, it seems time to add the stick to the carrot."

"For several years, an increasing number of condor deaths have been confirmed as due to ingesting lead shot from the carcasses of deer, coyotes and even ground squirrels."

"Now, a comprehensive study by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has concluded that lead is the leading cause of death in the roughly 65 condors that have died since the reintroduction program began along the Arizona-Utah border in 1996. In 2010, blood samples showed that 72 percent of captured birds had been exposed to lead, with 34 of them requiring treatment for lead poisoning." ...
