"As gun permit requests in Newtown, Connecticut skyrocket, one 'soon-to-be gun-toting grandma' is worried about the consequences of gun control."

"The New York Daily News reports 66-year old Nancy Ellis is concerned that her right to keep and bear arms may be in jeopardy: 'The fact that they were reeling in and squeezing more laws made me think, 'You know what? I want my gun permit. I want to exercise my right.'" ...

"Yesterday’s suicide by former Kansas City Star sports statistics editor Martin Manley outside of an Overland Park police station, and a personal blog from a woman who considered suicide, cast a few stones at firearms rather than the personal demons that evidently drove their actions."

"Manley was, according to his former newspaper, found at about 5 a.m. Thursday. He meticulously detailed how he was going to kill himself in an on-line post that is as much bizarre as it is gripping. He claims no illness, no legal trouble, no debt, no loneliness issues, yet he took his own life on his 60th birthday as if to make some statement about not wanting to grow old. Age 60, they say nowadays, is not 'old.'" ...

"Tactical Wire’s Tiger McKee writes:"

"I was organizing my shop, a constant process, and noticed I had a lot of old, beat up AR parts. Years ago I used to build hot rods and Harleys. The older I got the less I worried about looks, concentrating more on function. They ran like hell, but were painted with spray cans and looked rough around the edges. Technically they would be called 'rat' rods or bikes. Today this is a huge trend; you can’t pick up a bike or car magazine without seeing these rats. As I was sorting through boxes of parts I thought, 'Why not build a Rat Rifle?' . . ." ...

"Rich Grassi at thetacticalwire.com writes:"

"I’ve seen several myths promulgated in the recent past – it’s the internet again — and it’s time to take a look at them. 'Shooting double-action (with a DA revolver) isn’t accurate past a few feet. Best to thumb that hammer back and shoot it single action.' If you’re hunting a game animal or trying to hit a cigarette pack at 90 feet, perhaps. If you’re using the revolver in the context of defensive combat, the answer’s no and it’s been no all the way back to Ed McGivern. Don’t believe me, just ask John Pride, LAPD – among other champions of police revolvercraft – or Jerry Miculek . . ." ...

"Just because his wife, former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, was nearly killed in a mass shooting, doesn’t mean Mark Kelly hates guns."

"On the contrary."

"The retired astronaut and Navy captain owns a small arsenal of pistols and rifles."

"Kelly demonstrated his fondness for firearms at a gun range in Napa on Friday. ...'" ...

Submitter's Note: He has no problem with firearms, as long as they are his; that doesn't mean he wants anyone else to have any though.

"The age-old doctrine of state nullification is in the air across the United States, and of all the demographic groups, newspaper reporters and editors should be cheering the most — and not simply because it makes for interesting copy."

"A few years ago, not many would have guessed that this 215-year-old doctrine would regain standing as an accepted political tool, but according to a May 6 Rasmussen poll, 52 percent of mainstream voters think states should have the right to block, within their own borders, any federal laws they believe to be unconstitutional."

"If public support for HB 436, the Second Amendment Preservation Act, is any indication, the Missouri numbers are even higher. ..." ...

"An ordinance banning individuals from carrying loaded firearms in the city of Portland, Oregon, is constitutional, the state’s high court ruled on Thursday."

"Justice Richard Baldwin, who penned the unanimous ruling in State and City of Portland v. Jonathan D. Christian, explained that the ordinance is constitutional because it’s not an outright ban on carrying loaded firearms in public. Instead, it just regulates 'the manner of possession and use of firearms in public places.'"

"To be more specific there are 14 exceptions to the law, including one that permits law-abiding individuals with valid concealed carry permits, police officers, licensed security guards and other groups of people to bear arms in public." ...

... "The 'stand your ground' law the Florida Legislature enacted in 2005 despite spirited — if severely limited ­— opposition of late has been retargeted for rebuke given its tangential role in last year’s shooting death in Sanford of teenager Trayvon Martin and the acquittal last month of trigger man George Zimmerman."

"But rather than thumb their noses ... some of our state’s most devoutly conservative Republican leaders have lately acknowledged the importance of the hubbub, with Wesley Chapel’s Will Weatherford, speaker of the Florida House, not just among them, but leading them."

"Weatherford has announced plans to summon a group of legislators this fall to hear the public’s assessment of how 'stand your ground' is working ..." ...

"In a blow to anti-gun politicians and the gun ban lobby, today New Jersey Governor Chris Christie vetoed a ban on fifty caliber firearms and conditionally vetoed two other bills – a 'kitchen sink' bill attacking numerous rights of gun owners and sportsmen, and a bill that would have forced the New Jersey State Police to breach confidentiality of protected gun trace data in violation of federal law. A fourth bill creating a task force to study school security issues was signed by the Governor." ...

"The final stamp of approval has been given a Senate Joint Resolution urging Congress and the president to support comprehensive gun violence prevention policy at the federal level."

"'The tragedy at Sandy Hook ... and other recent mass shootings, as well as the daily carnage on streets and in homes all over America, clearly demonstrate the need for stricter controls on assault weapons and other dangerous weapons,' said state Sen. Lois Wolk ... 'Without a comprehensive federal approach to curbing gun violence, California's laws will fall short of providing the security our citizens expect. We can reduce gun violence and protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. The two goals are not mutually exclusive.'" ...
