"An ethics complaint against U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has been filed by David Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh with the Office of Bar Counsel, Board on Professional Responsibility of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.

"Erik Scott was a West Point graduate with an MBA from Duke. He served honorably in the Army and establish a lucrative career in real estate and as a sales rep for a medical device company. He was 38 years old when he was gunned down in the portico of a Las Vegas area Costco store by officers from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. While it was seven bullets from the only people we're supposed to trust with guns that snuffed out Erik Scott’s life, what really killed him was an irrational fear of firearms – hoplophobia." ...

"American gun rights advocates might thank the Palestinians and their supporters for delaying, until Tuesday afternoon, anyway, the start of the long-awaited Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) negotiations at the United Nations, although it leaves two key players from Washington State in a bit of a lurch."

"Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Bellevue-based [CCRKBA], and his wife, Julianne, have been key players in organizing the opposition to the ATT. Both are planning to be at the U.N. sometime during the negotiation process. It is widely known that CCRKBA staff had a role in crafting legislation sponsored by Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL) and Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) that would protect the Second Amendment from any such international treaty." ...

"McMillan, renown makers of some very-long-range rifles, has decided to break the mold and make a sniper rifle for close-quarters work. Their new Concealable Subsonic/Supersonic Suppressed Sniper System, or CS5, is built around a long-action receiver and a decidedly short barrel."

"The CS5 is a take-down rifle of sorts. Chambered in .308 Winchester, the rifle is designed to come apart at the stock and included suppressor, leaving the shooter with a rifle that measures only 23 inches long. The CS5 has a 12.5-inch barrel and is for concealed snipers in urban areas, and can be thrown into a backpack or other inconspicuous case for transport into buildings without drawing attention to the shooter." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908 [by an Indian extremist opposed to Gandhi's agreement with Smuts], whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defend me, I told him it was his duty to defend me even by using violence. Hence it was that I took part in the Boer War, the so-called Zulu Rebellion and [World War I]. Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. — Mohandas K. Gandhi, Young India, August 11, 1920 from Fischer, Louis ed.,The Essential Gandhi, 1962
