"Anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s suggestion to CNN’s Piers Morgan that the nation’s police go on strike to coerce state legislatures into adopting the mayor’s anti-gun agenda has Bellevue’s Alan Gottlieb calling for Bloomberg to go on strike, instead."

"'Mayor Bloomberg has gone from bluster to blackmail with his extremist gun ban campaign,' Gottlieb said in a press release from the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. 'He would have police officers quit their posts and abandon their public safety missions in what would amount to an exercise of national extortion.'" ...

But according to Bloomberg, even people who object to gun control on practical or constitutional grounds are morally obliged to support it. Such arrogant illogic may help explain why public support for new gun restrictions has been falling for two decades." ...

However, one key element in that background check has been changed, and supporters call it a good move."

"Nathan Woltman is among those who climb the steps at the Continental Arms Gun Range in Timonium for lessons and practice. Woltman knows guns and the law that applies to them." ...

"It will become a lot easier to obtain permits to conceal and carry guns in Maryland as of Aug. 7 under a court order filed Tuesday by a federal district judge."

"The order signed Monday by Judge Benson E. Legg gives state officials two weeks to implement his March ruling striking down a requirement that concealed carry applicants show a 'good and substantial reason' to transport a firearm."

"The requirement prevented many from applying for permits, according to gun proponents who expect tens of thousands of state residents to seek — and be granted — such licenses. There are about 12,000 active carry permits in Maryland." ...

"The anger hasn’t subsided in Humarock after 4th of July celebrations were cut short due to safety concerns."

"The debate over guns often sparks raw emotion and lays down a sharp dividing line, but for a Raleigh TV station, it has become personal and financial."

"In response to a WRAL report on concealed-weapons permits that included a searchable database, a North Carolina gun-rights organization has launched a campaign against the reporter and his supervisors and applied pressure to the station’s advertisers."

"The incident demonstrates the prickliness of examining gun-related issues even before the shooting in Colorado stirred fresh debate. It also exposes tensions that can arise between advocates of the First Amendment and its protections of free speech and supporters of the Second Amendment with its right to bear arms." ...
