"Hot tip: if some scroungy guy offers to sell you guns out of his trunk, he’s probably one of 'ATF’s Finest' — a criminal working with the agency to make new first-time felons. A Wisconsin man is now about to be a literal jailhouse lawyer because he didn’t listen to his own sense that there was 'something funny' about the convicted drug dealer who was insisting he buy the guns." ...

"This is what a win looks like to ATF:
  1. a formerly law-abiding man who was, when solicited, willing to bend the law is behind bars,

  2. a violent drug dealer who should be behind bars is out free, and

  3. another statistic for the ATF and the USAO." ...

"Gun range owner and 'Gun for Hire' radio co-host Anthony P. Colandro told New Jersey lawmakers last week that if legislation banning the possession of magazines with more than 10-round capacities is enacted, he 'will not comply.'"

"Perhaps the security at US naval bases could use some beefing up. Despite the fact that the AP reports the Navy held 'anti-terrorism and force protection exercises' at its US bases just last month, an as yet un-named civilian gained access to the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, 'approached a destroyer docked at the world’s largest naval base late Monday, disarmed a petty officer on watch and fatally shot a sailor' on board the guided missile destroyer USS Mahan. ..." ...

"This kind of senseless act if violence leads to only one conclusion. If only Virginia had instituted some common sense gun control measures, limiting firearms access to trained police officers and the military, a tragedy like this could have been prevented. Oh. Wait."

"To show the utter, abject bias against the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights in the 'news,' one need only turn to the New York Daily News to see a prime example. In a recent 'news' story on a gun give-away, the paper called the winner a 'gun nut,' and misidentified the rifle given away as an 'assault weapon.'"

The winner also had to pass a background check at a local gun store and wait the requisite period to take possession of the rifle."
