Hardware: Merkel 40E

Germany’s centuries-old bird-hunting tradition is often manifested in drillings and side-by-side shotguns with sling swivels, deep, heavy relief engraving and stock carvings one might expect to see on a cuckoo clock or glockenspiel. Suhl, Germany, is one of the world’s great gunmaking centers, and the standout firm in the modern era is Merkel Freres. The company endured two world wars, communist occupation and came out from under the fall of the Berlin Wall offering shotguns that were made and looked like guns produced before the Iron Curtain went up in the first place. Since 1989, its guns with more conventional lines and stocking have been brought into the United States.

One thing about American jurisprudence has become abundantly clear over the years: nothing is ever settled. Never. Again and again our federal courts take on new, if minor, twists to old issues and decisions that eventually make their way to the U.S. Supreme Court, whose rulings only seem to ensure another cycle of legal wrangling. From the Supreme Court's current term, abortion, the death penalty, the Affordable Care Act and affirmative action are just some topics that fall into this category.

Some political leaders in Oregon had strong reactions to Thursday's 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that determined carrying a concealed weapon in public is not a constitutional right. Liberal gun-control advocates at the Oregon Statehouse applauded the ruling as a step toward responsible gun ownership regulations, while conservative lawmakers and gun rights' groups blasted the decision as a "ludicrous" attack on the Second Amendment right they hope the Supreme Court will overturn.
 

Another Delicate Topic With Aging: When Is It Time to Give Up Guns?

The shooting range here has been Gregg Schnepp’s second home, the place he gathers with buddies who call one another “old fogy” as they send shotgun pellets flying through the air.
But now 70 and receiving treatment for Parkinson’s disease, Mr. Schnepp, along with his wife, JoAnne, faces a wrenching, emotionally charged question: When is the right time to give up the gun? ...
In a nation with widespread gun ownership and an aging population, firearm removal has been added to the burdens of caring for older relatives — alongside seizing the car keys and taking away the checkbook.

I haven’t been back on the cheeseburgers in recent days, although I have scouted out a country store in a remote location that reportedly serves up a good ham or bologna sandwich and plan to do some research there for an upcoming column. When I stopped to think about it, I think we’ve only had one meal out in recent weeks. We hit our nearest Tres Hermanos Nunez, the one in Cannonsburg, and enjoyed a quiet meal at a small table for two tucked into a corner. My wife ordered her usual, steak and chicken, but I decided to try something different than my usual, and still favorite — the simply titled “Chicken with Vegetables.”
 

Prophetic Predictions and Mass Murder in Orlando

A muslim murdered people in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Too many people told us this was going to happen. How many more murders will the anti-rights politicians bring on use before they let honest gun owners bear arms for self-defense?

I don’t think we will ever change the minds of Socialists Politicians. The only way to limit the damage these anti-rights politicians can do is to vote them out of office.

The California state Senate voted 28-8 Wednesday to exempt itself from the pointless gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the populace. Legislators apparently think they alone are worthy to pack heat on the streets for personal protection, and the masses ought to wait until the police arrive.

Thanks to a $25,000 donation, the Wayne County Sheriff's Office was able to buy back hundreds of guns from residents ready to unload. No questions asked, $50 for a gun--that's an offer the Wayne County Sheriff's Office has made before, but this buyback was different. The Mathis Community Center parking lot looked like an armory, but Judge Greg Mathis doesn't mind, because the guns are for future accessories, not an arsenal.

Gun control is back in the news and the European Union voted to adopt stricter rules regarding the buying and selling of semi-automatic weapons (including the prohibition of weapons that could be converted to automatic mode), measures to stop deactivated guns from being put back in use and improved tracking of trafficked weapons, and overall tighter controls on sales of guns over the internet. While the measures set a minimum standard for member nations to respect, it does not stop any of them from putting their own tougher regulations into effect. However, European Union lawmakers must endorse the rules before their take effect.

The details are different, but the story is the same: A killer with access to military-style weaponry mows down innocent Americans in cold blood. On Sunday it was apparently a self-radicalized Muslim who murdered 50 patrons of a gay nightclub in Orlando. In 2012, it was a mentally ill man with the same type of gun who killed 26 at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Next, who knows?

Casey is scheduled to introduce his measure at a Pittsburgh news conference. He was among several officials from the Philadelphia area who said the latest mass shooting shows the need for tighter regulations on gun purchases.

Omar Mateen, who committed the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, bought his firearms legally. So, Mateen passed a background check for the weapons, which has become the foundation of the anti-gun left. In other words, the gun control crowd's own agenda wouldn’t have prevented this horrific attack—and there are many reasons why.

The terror massacre at a packed Orlando nightclub reverberated across the presidential campaign trail Sunday, as the candidates condemned the deadliest shooting in U.S. history -- and Donald Trump ripped President Obama and Hillary Clinton for avoiding the term “radical Islam” in doing so. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee went so far as to say Obama should “step down” for not using the term and Clinton should “get out of this race” if she won’t either.

Across the street from San Francisco’s main jail, business is booming at Auto Glass Now where more than a dozen motorists show up on an average day to replace windows broken by thieves. “It’s been insane,” said Julio Lara, the shop’s manager who says nearby competitors are busy as well. “It’s nonstop.” San Francisco is in the grips of an auto burglary epidemic. No other place in the country — not New York, Chicago or Los Angeles — had as many “smash-and-grabs” per capita as San Francisco did last year.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
