... "This was the law for which Olympic Arms in Lacey announced in February that it would no longer do business with agencies in New York State. It’s the kind of law anti-gunners would like to see enacted in Washington and Oregon as 'sensible' or 'reasonable.' It limits magazine capacity to seven rounds, requires background checks for ammunition purchases, and requires that retailers report large ammunition sales to the police." ...

"Cuomo muscled the package through without hearings or public comment ... That would never fly in Olympia, where gun rights activists have held armed demonstrations this year, and flooded e-mail inboxes in opposition to semi-auto bans and expanded background check measures." ...

"I was, and still am, a massive nerd. So one of the things I did in college was play pencil and paper role playing games with my buddies. One of our favorites was Paranoia, set in a dystopian future where a paranoid computer was constantly weeding out 'communists' from the population that it believed were trying to overthrow society. You played as a 'troubleshooter,' an elite member of society who attained that position by betraying your closest friends and reporting them as commies. It was a parody of Soviet life, where snitching on your neighbors was as common as standing in bread lines. I never thought we’d see that in America, but the state of New York appears to have adopted the totalitarian model as a way of life . . ." ...

... "Let's think about that, though. St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner has been as enthusiastic as anyone about the revolutionary change Defense Distributed's 'Wiki Weapon' project is bringing to the gun rights/'gun control' debate. Still, the day when the ability to easily produce fully functional guns at home will render gun rights advocates indifferent to gun laws is a very long way off. The ability to print a gun, for example, does not address laws that forbid carrying it for self-defense."

"While the government will soon lose any say it now has in what kinds of guns citizens can own, and which citizens can own them, most of us would still prefer not to be branded "criminals" for enjoying this new access to freedom." ...

The AR has all its essential components – safety, mag and bolt release – in just the right place. On the original rifle Stoner used triangular handguards. The triangle shaped fits the shape of your hand nicely, and the flatter bottom helps when you’re resting it on something, like bracing for stability and accuracy. I have several rifles with them and really like ‘em. The problem with the original design, due to the material they are made from, is they break or crack easily.'

"But that is not my problem with the article. My problem is the opinion expressed by the pastor critical of strengthening gun control measures because 'it will only disarm the innocent.' Oh really.

In the run up to that potentially friendship-killing event (although I highly recommend the book), I asked Mr. Baum if I could share a couple of excerpts from his tome with TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia. The former New Yorker writer kindly agreed, perhaps in the hope that you’ll be captivated by his craftsmanship before you’re offended by his politics. This bit’s from Chapter 18, Tribes.

... "Here, Tribe is arguing that the politically incorrect features of 'assault weapons' have no relevance to self-defense. A pistol grip's ability to render a rifle more easily controllable does not improve its utility for self-defense, apparently. When attacked at night, protecting one's night vision, by using a flash suppressor, has no self-defense utility. When defending one's livelihood, and indeed one's very life, from hordes of brutal rioters, a quickly replaceable 30-round magazine is not at all useful, Professor Tribe would tell us." ...
