"Remington’s Pump Action 870 is the go-to shotgun for many members of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentia. Less discussed but equally respected (in some quarters): the Winchester SXP. What with its inertia-assisted slide-action and all, Winchester claims the SXP’s the world’s fastest pump action shotgun. Just don’t short-stroke it. Or tell Benelli. The SXP owes much of its success to its price: $400." ...

"Anti-gun activists and self-serving politicians are eager to proclaim that there’s no reason for anyone (except the police, of course) to have a magazine that holds more than ten rounds of ammunition. They claim that these 'high-capacity' magazines are simply tools to facilitate mass murder. On the surface, this seems logical; however, upon deeper investigation it becomes clear that their claim is nothing more than emotion filled rhetoric . . ." ...

The previous day, I had been all smiles and sunshine, but with two stages left to go, I was less than optimistic about my chances of getting back into the game. I was hoping to make it well into the top 100 shooters, but as I was starting the morning at a distant 147th I didn’t hold out much hope. Looking at the next stage we’d be shooting didn’t help, either. But things were about to take a turn for the awesome . . ." ...

... "... Partly in response to the slaughter of migrating birds, laws enacted in the 1930s limited to three the number of rounds that a shotgun could legally hold when used to hunt these birds. ..."

"So, for the past 80 or so years, we have already had in effect a federal restriction on large-capacity shotgun magazines. Nobody has complained that this restriction violates the Second Amendment or that it violates our constitutional rights. The National Rifle Association seems to ignore this specific legal restriction on large-capacity magazines. Indeed, the fact that such a restriction already exists seem to be ignored by both pro- and anti-gun-law-reform factions." ...

Submitter's Note: I am absolutely gobsmacked that someone might think that a temporary capacity reduction when actively engaged in a specific sporting activity is comparable to the proposed (or enacted) felony charges for mere possession (not use, just possession) of normal capacity mags.

"What can Americans learn from the bitter debate over the gun-reform bill?"

"Perhaps the most obvious lesson is that the leadership of the National Rifle Association, the Gun Owners of America and their tame Republican politicians have all earned an epithet of derision they used to hurl regularly at liberals."

"Yes, the gun lobby and its legislative servants are 'soft on crime' — though they routinely pretend to be tough on criminals." ...

"OF course it’s brilliant Boston managed to catch its Marathon bombers so quickly."

"Well done the FBI, Homeland Security, the police and obviously the city’s obediently locked down population."

"Terrorism is an evil that requires eternal vigilance and must be given no quarter."

"But while they were hunting down the Tsarnaev brothers, more than 300 other Americans were dying with a bang from the end of someone’s gun – although in contrast to the sound, fury and fright over the bombers, with barely a whimper." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Naturally the author "forgot" to mention that 185 of those 300 were suicides, and suicide rates, as we all know, are independent of method.
Another thing she "forgot" to mention is that statistically speaking (according to figures from the British Crime Survey) in those 4 days there were approximately 1,840 forcible rapes in England and Wales, vs. (according to the FBI's UCR) about 914 in the U.S.. Correcting for the difference in population gives us 1,840 vs. 165.
So tell you what, darlin', once you get your forcible rape rates down to, let's say, double ours, then and only then can you start preaching the virtues of victim disarmament.

"The University of Chicago’s Crime lab reports over 4 million 'gun related deaths' in the U.S from 1973 to 2012. A 4 year old child who accidentally kills himself with a loaded gun his mother stored in a shoe box is a gun related death but it is not a 'crime' or a 'homicide' and would not be included in a crime or homicide report thereby causing some confusion concerning the number of gun related deaths."

Josh Horwitz, the group's executive director, decided to take his unhappiness to the Huffington Post.

And that is as it should be, as Mr. Vanderboegh is by far the larger threat to their agenda." ...

"I sincerely hope that no one in our community would ever treat lightly a tragedy such as the ones in Newtown, Conn., Virginia Tech, Columbine or Aurora, Colo., but it could happen here. We therefore need to take steps to prevent such a calamity by focusing on what we can do to keep weapons such as those used in these incidents out of the hands of the mentally unstable, convicted criminals and people who traffic in illegal weapons supplying guns to those who use them to commit violent acts. It is the least we owe to the 31,000-plus Americans who die from gun violence each year. And it is the most logical step to prevent another Newtown or Columbine or Virginia Tech or Aurora here." ...

... "In the gun control debate many of the vociferous, while neglecting the first part of the Second Amendment ... stand strong that no one, no one should take away their Constitutional Right to bear arms no matter how outrageous those arms may be."

"To them the Constitution is unassailable. It is sacred. No one’s Constitutional rights should be abridged (unless, apparently, they are different or can be ignored by the majority)."

"So I find it interesting that some of the very vehement defenders of the Constitution, or at least one amendment to it, seem to have decided that the second suspect in the Boston bombing should not have been given his rights in light of what he is suspected of doing." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down... a person cannot be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)
