"My letter to Congress, read today at Texas Senate committee on Constitutional Carry. It is now public record."

"To my friends, fellow Texans, brothers in arms, members of the committee, and everyone within the sound of my voice, greetings."

"My name is First Lieutenant Patrick Cook of the 49th Transportation Battalion, Fort Hood, Texas, and this past Wednesday I found myself trapped in an enclosed room with fourteen of my fellow Soldiers, one of whom was barricading the door against a madman with a .45 pistol when he was fatally shot. Through what I can only describe as a miracle, he somehow found enough strength to continue pushing against that door until the shooter gave up and went elsewhere, at which time he collapsed. ..." ...

"Paul M. Barrett of Bloomberg Business Week has posted an interesting screed on Georgia’s (presumptive) new gun law, How to Understand Georgia’s ‘Guns Everywhere’ Law: Four Blunt Points[1]. As is customary, he starts out with a little hyperventilation: 'Georgia appears poised to enact a so-called guns-everywhere law, making it easier for firearm permit holders to take their weapons into bars, churches, and even airports.' OMG! You mean that GA is going to join 42 other states that allow carry in bars? And 44 that allow carry in (the non-secure area of) airports? Not to mention at least 31 states[2] that allow firearms in houses of worship[3]? It’s going to be all right, Paul, really . . ." ...

"... a Fort Hood soldier has urged lawmakers in Austin to allow personal firearms to be carried on base. In his letter, 1st Lt. Patrick Cook described the 'utter helplessness' he felt when he reached for his belt 'for something that wasn't there' as he and 14 other soldiers found themselves barricaded in a room as 'a madman with a .45 pistol' fired away and kicked at the door." ...

Superintendent Charles Maranzano defended the school's actions, because, 'We never know what's percolating in the minds of children.' And--get this--'when they demonstrate behaviors that raise red flags, we must do our duty.'"

"See, it's their duty to treat a child as a terrorist, leave him naked, bleeding, and unconscious (I exaggerate only slightly), because of the way he held a pencil. It's enough to prompt one to check to see if the article is satire--Superintendent Maranzano, with his 'we must do our duty,' sounds like an almost cartoonish parody of Orwellian collectivism." ...

"Just days after it was made public that the ATF gave a favorable ruling that clarifies shouldering SIG’s SB-15 arm brace on an AR-15 pistol is not illegal, SIG got an unfavorable ruling on their new MPX line of carbines and pistols."

"The pistol caliber carbines and pistols have an integral muzzle brake which allows a suppressor tube (sold separately, NFA laws apply) to be placed over it and an end cap threads it into place."

"The design seemed pretty slick. Pretty slick until the ATF ruled that the muzzle brake itself was a suppressor and thus would be subject to the standard NFA fees and process." ...

Luckily enough (for gun rights advocates), Shannon Watts’ mob has anti-gun agitprop ADD; their shotgun approach to rabble-rousing ensures that no one message finds its target.
