Unlikely trafficker cited in Shipley case given inexplicably lenient sentence

... "That a Mexican national, who helped arm some of the most dangerous killers on the planet should receive the same sentence as an American with a long and spotless record of service to his country ... is inexplicable enough. This is especially perplexing since the criminal complaint shows Lopez voluntarily confessed to many of his activities after being read his Miranda rights, without an attorney present and without demanding a deal. What’s perhaps even more baffling is Lopez’s background, which has disappeared as stale from the news website that reported it, but is preserved in a book about Mexican cartel crime."

"Donald Daw of Chattaroy, WA believes we should rethink the second amendment and actually manages to come up with a surprisingly good metaphor: 'Imagine a frightening new drug hitting the streets. The death rate is staggering. Republicans and Democrats make a rare joint effort to pass laws making the drug illegal.' Sigh. Like so many of his anti brethren he is trying to present a cost-benefit analysis without looking at the benefits. The correct presentation of this metaphor would go along the lines of . . ." ...

... "... I asked him what he thought an ‘assault weapon’ actually was. Looking at me as if I were mentally challenged, he said that everyone knows 'assault weapons are military-style, fully-automatic guns capable of emptying a 100 round magazine in 3 seconds.' When I told him that fully-automatic firearms had been heavily regulated since the National Firearms Act of 1934 he simply stared at me blankly as if unsure what to say. When I went on to point out that, despite public misconceptions, President Clinton’s now-expired ‘Assault Weapons Ban‘ had nothing to do with fully-automatic firearms at all, he sarcastically replied 'What kind of idiot would fall for such a thing?'" ...

"One might think that after years of practice, the gun prohibition lobby would understand that worn out platitudes and broad brush wish lists packaged as a canned response to some new violent outrage no longer get any serious traction with the public."

"Possibly some small credit might go to this writer’s most recent collaboration with longtime co-author Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation. The book, Shooting Blanks: Facts Don’t Matter to the Gun Ban Crowd, has been enjoying good reader reviews." ...

"Our founding fathers recognized that the most important element of our United States of America was the people, not the politicians or the military. At the time our Constitution was established, along with the Bill of Rights, the people could not protect themselves from tyrants. Thus in the Second Amendment to the Constitution we were given the power and right to own arms to protect ourselves." ...

"When Sara Weaver saw her father Randy struck in the shoulder by a government sniper's bullet in the Idaho wilderness in August 1992, she began to sprint back to the family's cabin on a mountaintop called Ruby Ridge."

"As the 16-year-old closed in, her mother, Vicki, opened the cabin door and stood behind it, holding Sara Weaver's 10-month-old sister in her arms. Just then, a sniper's bullet struck her mother in the head, killing her." ...

"Today, 20 years later, Sara Weaver has left the anger behind, finding religion — and forgiveness."

Its a process that no one really wants to do more than once, and thankfully with AAC’s 762-SDN-6 you might only have to do it once for all of your rifles…" ...

"Raven Concealment recently rolled out the second iteration in their Vanguard series of holsters, the Vanguard 2 (VG2). The Vanguard holsters, and the VG2 specifically, are a truly unique design concept. The Vanguard holsters are essentially trigger guards with an attachment mechanism, and provide an extremely minimalist way to carry your handgun."

"The idea is simple – cover the trigger guard, and provide a way to attach the holster to your belt, bag, etc. Then when you draw the pistol, the holster stays behind and weapon comes free." ...

But POK Carbine doesn’t roll off the tongue quite like JR Carbine. The JR may not be quite right, but it’s totally salvageable. With some work, I think the boys from Canandaigua could have a truly awesome gun on their hands. Sticking to our newly debuted review guidelines, I’m going to build it up and tear it down . . .." ...

"How many more tragedies need to happen before the United States joins the modern world in banning assault weapons?"

"There is no reason anyone needs to be able to own a rapid-fire weapon capable of killing dozens of people. Weapons for self-defense and for hunting are one thing, but weapons made for the battlefield have no place in people’s homes."

An ideology. A fantasy, actually, that more guns are better, that more guns make us safer, that the solution to gun violence is more guns."

"Those ideas are belied by the facts in Philadelphia, a city so beset with gun violence that there’s a website—run by a few heroic journalists—dedicated to tracking the single topic. But it’s still worth examining them a little more closely, just to see how at odds they are with reality." ...

"Last week's shooting at the headquarters of the Family Research Council (FRC) has placed the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) back into the news. The SPLC recently had placed the FRC on its list of hate groups because the SPLC claims that in its opposition to gay marriage, the FRC defames gays and lesbians."

"It should be noted that the not-for-profit SPLC ostensibly began its mission to help those who had been victimized by civil rights violations by filing suits on their behalf. In recent years, the SPLC ... has also moved away from suing on behalf of the aggrieved to raising awareness of the presence of 'hate groups.' Most of all, for the last 35 years, it has become a real fundraising dynamo." ...
