"The office of the Public Advocate for the City of New York has advised two Washington-based gun rights groups seeking documents covering work between Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office and the Mayors Against Illegal Guns that it will review documents and respond to the groups’ Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request."

"... The FOIL request came following disclosures that MAIG’s website was being hosted on the City of New York’s server and that it was being administered by city employees, and that Bloomberg had sent a 'special counsel' from his office to lobby in Nevada on gun control measures, on behalf of the anti-gun mayor’s group." ...

"While surfing the internet at work this morning, my husband ran across a blog with a post so… um. ..interesting that he emailed me the link and accompanied it with a note: 'Be sure to read this in an open field, so that when your head explodes it won’t make a mess in the house.' I was intrigued. As soon as I had the baby down for a nap, I sat down to read the post, Heidi Yewman’s ‘My Month With a Gun’, which you can find here. I then spent the first half of the baby’s nap writing a retort response, which you can’t find at the address at the link, as, to the surprise of no one, it did not pass the blog’s mediation standards . . ." ...

"We have all heard the phrase 'freedom isn’t free' countless times, usually in conjunction with a patriotic reminder of the sacrifices that our service members have made to preserve our liberty. Hundreds of thousands have died or been permanently disabled on both foreign and domestic battlefields in that pursuit. Many that have survived are forever scarred by the horrors that they experienced in battle. Remembering their sacrifice is a just and fitting tribute to be sure. However, for most people, that is where the awareness ends. It is generally viewed as the military’s job to make the sacrifices, for which the due respect is paid, but that the role for the rest of society is to merely be the benefactors. ..." ...

A little back ground on myself; I grew up in the country. We lived on a secluded plot of land and had weapons around mostly for snakes and varmint that we didn’t want bothering us or our dogs.

"I’ve always been a gun guy. Born in east Texas in the mid-80’s to an oil field family, I was raised in south Mississippi in the community that 5 generations of my clan have called home. My first deer was harvested at age 9 by a thrilling combination of a 7mm Magnum, my vision and trigger finger, and my father’s iron shoulder and nerves of something-tougher-than-iron. Guns are part of the very fabric of my being and culture. I have Mosins and German Mausers and .22 rifles from the early 1930’s, as well as a modest fleet of modern polymer handguns that I don’t shoot as often as I’d like. My point is, firearms come naturally to me, and are completely accepted in my world . . ." ...

Although Vygotsky believed inner speech developed from external speech via a gradual process of internalization, with younger children only really able to 'think out loud,' he claimed that in its mature form inner speech would be unintelligible to anyone except the thinker, and would not resemble spoken language as we know it (in particular, being greatly compressed).'

"So in light of recent events at Sandy Hook and elsewhere I would like to offer my opinion and say I fully agree with those who think the government should not attack our constitutional rights. Clearly the Bill of Rights is a sacred document. We can’t alter it in any way, shape, or form. We should never impose any restrictions on those very freedoms that make America the country that it is." ...

Submitter's Note: No, moron, it is not a sacred document, it is merely the law of the land. And the Constitution certainly can be changed either lawfully (by following the procedures laid out in the document itself) or unlawfully (by ignoring it when unConstitutional laws are passed).

Michael Schraa's Firearms Freedom Act grandstanding, it's time to replace the Second Amendment in a sensible way with a multitude of civility amendments that restrict concealed carry to those who can show a need and that allow tracking industry gun sales to determine how weapons are finding their way into criminal activity, thereby reducing the main arguments for gun hysteria. We still cling to this militia wishful thinking, which was a means to defend the country on the cheap and failed more often than not during our first 100 years of history." ...
