"DefenseReview has covered the 6.8 SPC (a.k.a. 6.8 Remington SPC a.k.a. 6.8x43mm SPC a.k.a. 6.8mm Remington SPC a.k.a. 6.8mm SPC) round for quite some time now. We're a proponent of the cartridge, due to its superior efficacy over 5.56x45mm NATO (5.56mm NATO)/.223 Rem. within its (6.8 SPC) operational envelope of 400-500 yards, its grassroots-level development history, and the support it's garnered inside the U.S. Army Special Forces (SF) community and general SOCOM/Special Operations (SPECOPS) community." ...

"My 20-month-old nephew loves Elmo and Dora. He also has started making explosion and gunfire noises."

"I get the inevitability of little boys' fascination for guns."

"What I can't figure out are the men and sometimes women who don't grow out of the gun-crazy stage of childhood, who need to have a handgun on their hips at all times, who need their neighbors to notice."

"Ten of them stormed the West Valley City Council meeting last week to back up Travis Deveraux, a 36-year-old credit card company worker who was detained by police last December while exercising with his Smith & Wesson." ...

"The April 16, 2007, tragedy at Virginia Tech struck a chord in Fairfax County ... Discussing the aftermath of the tragedy almost 14 months after it, fathers of the two victims met with legislators and experts to discuss some lessons learned from the massacre." ...

"... One bill he hoped to pass through was to have private gun vendors follow federal guidelines in performing an instant background check on their customers. ... He said the gun show loophole bill would have reduced the probability of guns winding up in hands of wrong people. 'Here to me was a no-brainer,' he said. Another two firearm bills he introduced, banning firearms in libraries and day care centers, did not pass through a subcommittee." ...

"... The Hills stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have spent a reported $10,000 on guns ... When questioned about the reasoning behind the purchase of two Wilson close quarter combat 45-caliber pistols, two Benelli semiautomatic M4 tactical shotguns, and one Scout semiautomatic rifle, a friend told In Touch Weekly, 'Spencer does have a few enemies.'"

"However, who needs five guns, honestly? Does he really think that his 'enemies' are going to come after him and Heidi? According to 24-year-old Spencer, his appearances on the MTV reality show brought the loathed couple some tremendously negative attention. This led to the couple going to Culver City, CA to purchase the weapons on June 7 in order to protect themselves. ..." ...

Here is his record on Gun Rights and The Second Amendment:"

"# Opposed concealed carry for civilians." ...

"Gov. Paterson wants to give the [NRA] - of all people - a state-sanctioned role in training would-be gun owners in New York."

"Paterson is proposing a gun safety bill that, in part, requires buyers of guns to first take a firearms safety course."

"A clause tucked away in the bill says the program must meet or exceed the standards of 'the home firearms safety course as approved by the [NRA]' or another course approved by the state police."

"While the NRA training program is well-regarded, its inclusion in the bill has angered a number of legislative Democrats and anti-gun activists."

"Jackie Hilly, executive director of New Yorkers Against Violence, said the inclusion of the NRA in the legislation gives the group state-sanctioned support." ...

"At a time when even nail files and pocket knives are barred from courts, Hillsdale County has reopened its historic courthouse to citizens who legally pack weapons."

"Circuit Judge Michael Smith recently ordered the 'no guns' signs removed at the courthouse in downtown Hillsdale, saying the ban is against state law."

"Smith said that courthouses are not exempt from state concealed-weapons laws, so there's no way to lawfully stop people from carrying a concealed weapon if they're licensed properly."

"The ban against citizens carrying guns in courts is based on a 2001 administrative order by the Michigan Supreme Court, not on legislation." ...

Rochester's gun drop-off program it back in action this weekend.

The last time it was held, more than 150 weapoons were taken off the streets.

The program began earlier this year, allowing people to trade in guns for Wegman's gift cards; no questions asked.

Before Wegmans got involved, the same program would collect just 20 guns.

The next gun drop-off program is Saturday at these locations: Helping Hand Missionary Baptist Church on Joseph Avenue, Charity Bible Baptist Church on Avenue D, Goodwill Missionary Baptist Church on Clifton Street, Full Gospel Tabernacle Gospel on Clifford Avenue and United Missionary Baptist Church on Bay Street.

Guns can be dropped off between one and five in the afternoon.

"If you can get to Chicago (and even if you normally make a point of avoiding Chicago--an easily understandable policy) on July 11th, you need to do so. The Illinois gun rights movement, with the help of ISRA and Illinois Carry, has a little surprise for the purveyors of the forcible citizen disarmament agenda in Illinois."

"That's right--a Second Amendment rally in downtown Chicago, featuring Suzanna Hupp (if you don't know who she is, or how compelling she is as a speaker, see this)." ...

"The shooting sports can be an exceptional discipline- and character-building program for people of all ages; especially youngsters. I started shooting when my diaper pin helped hold up my cartridge belt. But that was coming out of the Great Depression; things were very different then."

"We learned to harvest game birds and animals for food, not just sport. I matched the gun and ammunition to best deliver one-shot kills and not mutilate the meat. Safety was paramount, learned at an early age along with marksmanship by a father well-versed in firearms and hunting."

"The keen eyes and steady hands of our youth allow them to achieve some impressive scores, be it target shooting or hunting. ..." ...

At least a dozen people are hurt after vehicles veered onto sidewalks in two accidents in bustling Manhattan neighborhoods.

Authorities say a 60-year-old driver was pulling out of a Chinatown parking spot Friday when he accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brakes. His car mounted the curb and hit people sitting on a bench and walking on the sidewalk.

Two victims are hospitalized in serious but stable condition. Five others were treated for less serious injuries. The driver isn't expected to face criminal charges.

Police say another vehicle hit five or six people and a building later Friday in the Garment District. They say the crash inflicted minor injuries.

Police are interviewing the driver.
