... "... In order to buy into that, one must also believe that the head of the United States Department of Justice, with the virtually unlimited resources of the federal apparatus at his disposal, knew less than two relatively obscure, home-based bloggers in Alabama and Ohio, who had uncovered and amassed quite a bit of documentation, and obtained significantly wider recognition of those efforts by the time Holder claims, under oath, he got his first inkling." ...

Lloyd Constantine is horrified horrified! by stand your ground laws and won't let anything silly like facts or reality stand in the way of expressing his outrage. Now Lloyd’s displayed problems with judgement in the past…aside from his role advising Client Number 9. So that may explain some of his problems exhibiting much restraint or even-handedness when talking about Florida’s SYG law . . ."

"As you know, the streets have not run red with blood since concealed carry laws have been liberalized. (I love that word in that context.) Nor has the explosion in concealed weapons permits turned recently reclaimed territory into the Wild West (setting aside the fact that the Wild West was a monastery compared to the ganglands of New York City and other conurbations of the time). While some state residents continue to live under the yoke of nearasdammit total gun control, those that have thrown off their ballistic shackles continue to defend and extend their rights, facing the same old non-arguments. ..." ...

"Remember the hysteria surrounding private militias? You know; back when Sarah 'She Put a Reticle Over Her Opponents on her Facebook Page' Palin was the Republican choice for Vice President? About the time ... the feds did the entrapment thing with the Hutaree militia (later tossed in court). Liberal commentators drew a straight line between the Republican party, gun rights and 'domestic terrorism.' Oh how we laughed! We also warned our readers that the law enforcement industry was taking a bead on small government types. Some of which are called 'Sovereign Citizens.'

"A recent report by the National Shooting Sports Foundation has found that the booming firearm industry is supplying Americans with plenty of jobs."

"Gun control advocates may find that they need to adopt a begrudging acceptance of firearms nowadays. Even as the economy is struggling to get on its feet, the firearms industry is standing proud. The growing industry is supplying workers with thousands of jobs, and of course that translates into tax dollars for the government. Compared to 2008, the gun industry has seen a 30.6% increase in jobs and a 66.5% spike in both economic impact and federal taxes paid by industry companies." ...

"Depending on your age, you may or may not have been affected by the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, the one that was allowed to expire in 2004. During the ban, sales of certain types of semi-automatic AR-15s and other scary-looking guns were limited to military and LE personnel. Even more restrictive, magazines were limited to a maximum of 10 rounds for just about any kind of weapon, pistol, rifle, whatever. Versions of this ban still exist in some states – notably California and Massachusetts – which still strictly regulate certain types of weapons and magazine sizes." ...
