"When the election of '04 was still being discussed on television news channels, the blogosphere was already onto the next big topic of discussion: the primaries in '08."

"Then, as now, every poll shows one man in the lead three years out: John McCain."

"At first, we erupted with disdain at the prospect of McCain being our nominee. A RINO take our party into the next 8 years? Are you kidding? ..." ...

"What about the bedrock issue of gun control? McCain voted in favor of a bill that would require storage or safety locks on all handguns prior to their sale or transfer."

"I find it interesting that Sen. Mark Dayton chose to lecture Sen. Norm Coleman about his so-called 'disgraceful action' in voting for legislation aimed at strengthening the Second Amendment, an issue important to Minnesota's sportsmen."

"It seems that Dayton has a warped view of the meaning of disgrace when he attacks a bipartisan group of senators for passing a common-sense bill while at the same time stating: 'The legislation has absolutely nothing to do with protecting Americans' Second Amendment rights, which I fully support.'"

"It has also drawn a sharp reaction from gun control campaigners, who criticised the fact that because Johnson was convicted as a minor his criminal record will be wiped clean and he will be allowed to buy a gun."

"The Herald-Leader's Aug. 3 editorial "Protecting gun-makers" propagates misleading information, showing the editorial board's anti-gun bias and its members' lack of credibility as journalists."

"Just because some cases have not gone the anti-gun left's way does not make them good lawsuits. The suits are attempts to bankrupt the gun industry through lawyers' fees, a tactic the anti-gun crowd has bragged about for years."

"Instead of chasing the people who shot the guns, the left prefers to go after the people who design or sell perfectly legal weapons." ...

"When will the anti-gun crowd and media understand that it's not guns that are bad, but the people who abuse guns and break the law?" ...

"Toronto Mayor David Miller has been under a lot of pressure to be more visible after the recent wave of violence. We've seen 23 shootings in three weeks -- 8 of them deadly."

"But in an exclusive interview with 640 Toronto, Miller says that criticism isn't fair. He told reporter Catherine Jette at Yonge and Dundas Square Friday morning, that it's tough juggling fatherhood and being the mayor. He disagrees with the notion that he hasn't been "visible" on the issue -- but in the end, he says he's not the one that matters. What's important is getting the guns off Toronto's streets."

"At the times of his eight gun purchases (some of which were reported to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms), and up until his attack on President Reagan, Hinckley had no felony record, had no record of mental illness or commitment, and was using a valid Texas driver's license issued May 23, 1979, to make his purchases."

"All of those purchases were legal, and they would have been legal and approved under any 'waiting period' or 'background check' scheme ever contemplated. Simply put, no detection system ever proposed or devised has mind-reading capability."
