... "... How will you -- and they -- react when it turns out millions aren’t prepared to go even two days, and besides that, there are all kinds of opportunities to add to material happiness, now that the store registers aren’t working anyway, nor are any credit, debit and wealth transfer cards, and the only thing standing between those who would take and those who have are … those who have." ...

"The head of a pro-gun-rights physicians’ organization today blasted the findings of a research project published by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that intimated states with more gun laws have a lower rate of firearm fatalities."

"The JAMA report was first publicized by NBC News, which also has been blistered by a National Rifle Association official for an unrelated story yesterday that suggested the NRA was ready to make a behind-the-scenes deal on a national universal background check bill." ...

"I was hanging out with Charlie Sisk doing some load development in his private indoor range a few weeks back, and we stumbled across a pretty surprisingly accurate subsonic .243 Winchester load. We were trying to find an acceptably accurate load for one of his friend’s kids to start practicing without much recoil or noise (they have a silencer), and after some trial and error we were getting as good a group as if we’s been shooting supersonic. Here’s the data . . ." ...

"One of the biggest pains for newbie 3-gun competition shooters: finding the guns and gear that fits. It’s hard to justify dropping a couple hundred dollars on belts and magazine holders and special bags and such. Being a naturally cheap bastard, kitting up for 3-gun has been a long and involved process. But the instant I got picked up by a sponsor, things changed . . ."

"On the last day of SHOT Show, I sat down with Larry Houck of Team FNH USA to talk about the plan for the year. After a chat about my competitive shooting background and how the team runs, he got down to business."

"'Ask police chiefs — we asked ours — about the need for background checks on gun buyers,' my.chicagotribune.com suggests. 'They will tell you universal background checks would reduce the number of guns ending up in the wrong hands.' See how that works? The civilian disarmament industry creates a catchy name—”assault rifle” or “universal background check”—ties it to a piece of gun control legislation and voila! Gun rights gone. Why? Because voters don’t have the time for or interest in investigating the truth of the matter. But it is there. For example . . ." ...

"'Jay Victorino was standing outside his mother’s apartment when he was grabbed by police, and he says if she hadn’t come downstairs to identify him he would’ve been arrested on a trespassing charge,' the AP reports. That’s because his mother’s South Bronx building is one of thousands of private dwellings patrolled by the New York Police Department under a program known as Operation Clean Halls.' According to nyc.gov, Operation Clean Halls 'offers police patrols in residential buildings to prevent drug use and sales. Landlords can request that the police conduct patrols in the hallways and stairwells of their building to remove non-residents who are loitering.' Ah yes, loitering. Not to mention any other crime the cops detect. .." ...

"The candidates in Massachusetts' U.S. Senate special election are offering voters a stark choice on the question of gun control."

"Both Democratic candidates, Stephen Lynch and Edward Markey, have called for the reinstatement of a federal assault weapons ban approved in 1994. The prohibition on high-grade, military-style weapons expired in 2004."

"Two Republican candidates -- Gabriel Gomez and former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan -- oppose reinstating the ban, arguing that it isn't effective in reducing violence and would infringe on the rights of gun owners. A third Republican, Daniel Winslow, hasn't said if he supports or opposes the ban." ...

"The ... Senate Judiciary Committee seemed certain to approve the measure Thursday, probably on a party-line vote. But once it reaches the full Senate - probably in April - the measure appears destined for defeat, thanks to opposition by Republicans and some moderate Democrats, as well."

"'I'd like to see everybody doing more,' bill sponsor Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday when asked if she'd like more assistance from Obama. 'Yes, absolutely, we need help. We have - a reference to the potent National Rifle Association." ...

"In 1977 at a Denver hotel, Don Kates paced a conference room lecturing a small group of young scholars about the Second Amendment and tossing out ideas for law review articles. Back then, it was a pretty weird activity in pursuit of a wacky notion: that the Constitution confers an individual right to possess a firearm." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: It is still a 'wacky notion' because the Second Amendment doesn't confer anything, what it does is protect the freedom to own and carry the weapon of your choice.

"Living in the Southwest for most of my life, I’ve seen just how many people go to Colorado to hunt, fish, ski, hike, camp and sight see. Combined together, these activities generate millions of dollars for businesses as well as the state government."

"Yet, the controlling Democrats are willing to lose a large portion of that revenue and place many businesses in jeopardy, just to push Obama’s anti-gun policies. A couple of major businesses are already looking to relocate out of the state because of the recently passed and newly proposed anti-gun laws." ...

The supervisors agreed to allow a half hour public comment session before the vote, after an agreement by both parties, though such comment is not typically allowed at full board meetings without a prior request and a vote by the supervisors." ...

"Commonwealth Second Amendment filed suit earlier this month in US District Court for the District of Massachusetts. They are challenging the lifetime ban by Massachusetts on the issuance of a license to carry for even minor drug offenses. Named as defendants are the towns and police chiefs of Salisbury and Natick."

"The individual plaintiffs, Michael Wesson of Salisbury and Thomas Woods of Natick, each had a misdemeanor conviction for possession of less than one ounce of marijuana in other states over 30 years ago. They are both well into middle age. Massachusetts law treats simple possession of an amount of marijuana this size a civil offense and not something which can be used to deny someone a LTC." ...
