... "The 90% canard has been exposed so many times, and for so long, that a professional 'Authorized Journalist' using it again here can only be explained by a truth-be-damned agenda."

"As has the astounding corruption of both Mexican military and police forces, from whose ranks the narcoterrorist Los Zetas sprang, first as enforcers, and now as prime players in their own right."

"But we’re to believe it’s due to that 'wide gulf in gun laws.'" ...

"The biggest constitutional civil rights story of 2010, maybe of the decade, was based right here in Bellevue, yet as the on-line Seattle Post-Intelligencer is currently beginning its 'Top Stories' reviews, should we expect to see a single word about the Second Amendment Foundation’s landmark gun rights victory before the U.S. Supreme Court? Don’t hold your breath."

... "I'd like to address a few points raised by the post Josh Moon in Hot Water Over Registering Ammo Sales to help new and non-gun owners understand the subject of firearms ownership a little better. After reading Josh Moon's take on gun control, QL says 'Hey, I should have the right to defend myself and shoot any SOB who breaks into my home and means to cause my family harm.' Some people might be offended by that remark. But let's look at this the other way around. How could this SOB have avoided being shot? By not violating the law. If the worst happens, it was his failure of 'personal responsibility.' Some would reject this perspective and say: 'If someone breaks in, you should call the police!'" ...

"Hope all y’all’s Christmases went well. Spent mine at home base, and was reminded how good it is to be among those people with solid core values who constitute what some call The Gun Culture. Christmas Eve was spent at a small dinner party with friends, among whom the armed far outnumbered the unarmed. Dress code was 'chilly weather casual,' and when the coats came off it was apparent that the hosting residence would be the worst possible target for home invaders." ...

"Sitting down for dinner at any Texan diner, in my experience, often involves guns."

"I can't recall the exact number of times I have eaten a meal in the immediate company of a man, or men, with shooters on their hips in plain view. For me, I am always equal parts spellbound and queasy."

"Spellbound because there is something so fundamentally cowboy and western about it. Guns, freedom, country music and the Second Amendment. It is Texas after all. Yeeha!"

"Queasy because sitting in a public eatery chewing on a steak whilst surrounded by manly males packing pistols feels too much like entering a movie set. Or the twilight zone. All those rights and freedoms. It just feels wrong somehow. ..." ...

"Back in June, Kahr Arms bought Magnum Research, makers of the famed and feared (often for its failure to fire) Desert Eagle ... Before cashing in their chips, Magnum’s mavens had milked the Eagle for all it was worth. (Which is just as bad as it sounds.) They’d expanded the Desert Eagle’s caliber options from .50 to .44 and .357 (or all three) and hatched a flock of eaglets ... Not to mention the Big Frame Revolver or Mountain Eagle rifle (five calibers) and Magnum Lite MLR-1722 rifle (five calibers), which have had some issues. By the time Kahr took over, the Eagle brand had been extended towards extinction. In fact, Magnum had stopped importing the Baby Desert Eagle from Israel. And now . . . it’s back!" ...

"Sturm, Ruger & Co reckon their new Gunsite Scout Rifle is a credible rendition of Col. Jeff Cooper’s 'fighting carbine' Scout Rifle. Guns & Ammo mag described the Col.'s concept back in May '09: 'Three kilograms maximum weight, one meter maximum length, a forward-mounted telescope, and chambered in .308 Winchester.' Cooper wanted a rifle that could go anywhere and do anything, from self-defense to an entire day's hunting, taking game up to 500 pounds (so much for travelling light). In a country where gun owners can afford multiple quality rifles for multiple tasks (especially defense), the Scout Rifle never really caught on. So why is Ruger teaming up with Cooper’s Gunsite inheritors to bring it on back?" ...

"As noted by many, the federal stonewalling of information about the incident creates more doubt, suspicion and rumors."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
