... "PSAs, offensive anti-gunners and fondling notwithstanding, all the illusion-making and manipulation in the world, can’t completely mask the inconvenient truth that those behind the ad would rather see a woman and her children murdered in their home than have an accessible, working gun. They would rather she be torn apart by multiple assailants than have a firearm with the magazine capacity needed to repel and defeat them. They would rather see her violated and murdered on the street than carrying a handgun, openly or concealed." ...

... "This situation can best be summed up by remarks made by retired Pierce County sheriff’s detective Bill Burris one week ago to members of the Washington State Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association (WSLEFIA), which announced its opposition to I-594 a year ago, without any press coverage. More recently the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs also announced opposition to I-594 and support for a competing measure, Initiative 591, again without a peep from the local press."

"'There is a virtual news blackout of the fact that WSLEFIA took its positions on the initiatives a year ago,' Burris told his audience, 'and the fact that the Washington Council of Police and Sheriff’s voted to oppose 594 and support 591 ...'" ...

"There were no police at the time the Constitution was written and the Bill of Rights ratified. Police as we know them didn’t come into being until a couple of decades later, in England. There, giving the police power was resisted as an infringement on local power for a considerable time, and police only gradually spread across the United States. Police forces have taken over many of the functions of local militias and are, for the most part, locally controlled. The closest modern equivalent to the militia . . ." ...
 

New Bloomberg Anti-Gun Ad Inadvertently Proves Why Women Need Guns
Submitted by: Anonymous

"Bloomberg's new anti-gun Organization Everytown is out with a new advertisement that inadvertently proves why women should be trained and armed before being faced with a violent attacker."

"The new ad shows an unarmed woman with her child alone in her home when her violent ex-husband shows up at the door in a violent rage. She calls 911, but because when seconds count the police are minutes away, that phone call didn't matter. The ex-husband breaks down the door, takes the kid and pulls a gun on the woman. All of this could have been prevented if the woman had a firearm in her possession as soon as she saw her ex-husband pounding on the door." ...

"After five long years of trial, a federal judge finally made his ruling: The District of Columbia can no longer forbid citizens the right to carry firearms in public."

"Not only did Judge Fredrick Scullin rule Washington, D.C., laws unconstitutional, he ordered the city to allow residents and non-residents to carry handguns outside the home."

"... The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that the city’s all-out ban against handgun ownership was unconstitutional."

"So basically, the liberal D.C. government officials capitulated on ownership — requiring guns to be registered — but disallowed transporting or carrying outside the home. Last Saturday, that was also shot down by Scullin." ...

"So you have made the decision to accept the responsibility for your personal safety and want to carry a firearm. It is not always a decision a person comes to lightly and can be influenced by many things. It could be the neighborhood isn’t what is once was, that something happened to you or a loved one, the 10 o’clock news got to you, or you’re just tired of waiting 3-5 days to pick up that new handgun. Whatever the reason is, the responsibility is the same." ...
 

Shooting Illustrated on Their Remington R51 Review: Oops

"Shooting Illustrated had been pimping the Remington R51 hard. They put it on their cover, they gave it a glowing review, and even after a plethora of negative reviews of the firearm started coming out they issued a full-throated defense of their actions and conclusions. As I noted, this situation is the clearest illustration of the lack of integrity among dead tree publications. But there’s now a problem: even Remington admits the R51 was a debacle. In light of that new development, Shooting Illustrated had this to say . . ." ...

"I had the chance to visit the heart of gun valley for the first time last week. I was in Springfield, Massachusetts with a clowder of other gun guys courtesy of Smith & Wesson. The real reason for the trip was to give us some trigger time with three new guns. The first two are really updates ... They also showed us a new gun that we can’t talk about until it’s released in a couple of weeks. But in between the shooting and the sharing, we took some time to tour Smith’s massive 480,000 square foot production facility. Their media relations director, Paul Pluff, showed us around and I’m pretty sure we walked a good 479,000 of those square feet . . ." ...

"At the time of this writing, I know of three companies working on replacement trigger packs for the IWI TAVOR SAR: Timney, Geissele, and ShootingSight. If you haven’t heard of ShootingSight don’t feel bad; they’re a small 'mom & pop' type shop ... which first started out making aftermarket aperture sights for competition rifle shooters and then branched out into high-quality trigger units and FCG parts replacements. Although Timney beat ShootingSight to market by a few months, its TAVOR trigger has been plagued with light primer strike problems that, unfortunately, I was able to confirm in my review. With a little trepidation due to the Timney TAVOR trigger experience, I dropped in ShootingSight’s kit and hit the range…" ...
 

Gun Review: SPHINX SDP Compact VS. CZ P-07

"A departure from your traditional gun review, what follows is more of a 'shootout.' It’s a review of the SPHINX SDP Compact Alpha through the lens of how it compares to the CZ P-07 and the popular CZ 75 line. You see, in the 80′s SPHINX began producing pistols for the first time, and it did so by licensing the CZ 75 design. Since then it has modified and adapted CZ’s platform, all with Swiss precision and the attention to detail, finish, fitment, and materials that SPHINX has been known for. To some, it’s an upscale CZ. The question, then, is what can you expect from a $1,295 SPHINX that you don’t get from a $510 CZ? . . ." ...

"As a pediatrician, I have one, straightforward professional obligation: to safeguard and support the health and wellbeing of my patients. In my case, those patients are children, but you could change the age range of the people coming into the office and apply that statement to any medical provider."

"Every question I ask and every part of the physical examination, no matter how uncomfortable or invasive they might sometimes seem, is directed toward that one goal. ..."

"Asking about guns in the house is no exception. When I ask parents if there are firearms in the home, and if so how they are secured, it is for the sole purpose of keeping their children safe. " ...

Submitter's Note: Well doc, since that is your firm belief, then under section 790.338(2) of the law (the part that says "[n]otwithstanding this provision, a health care provider ... that in good faith believes that this information is relevant to the patient’s medical care or safety may make such a verbal or written inquiry") you can ask away.

"IN RESPONSE TO the shooting tragedies in Newtown, Connecticut, and Aurora, Colorado ... House Speaker Robert DeLeo introduced new firearms legislation. Public hearings were held before the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security in late May, and the bill barely passed out of committee last month, by a single vote."

"While much of the language of the legislation strives to prevent firearms from getting into the hands of the mentally ill, one proposed measure is highly contentious: giving Massachusetts police chiefs absolute discretion in issuing Firearms Identification Cards, or FIDs. Without an FID, individuals cannot purchase or possess firearms of any type – rifles, shotguns, pistols, or revolvers." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
