"As we reported at the beginning of the month, the Force Science Institute has been discussing the thorny subject of blue-on-blue shootings. As is their wont, FSI asked cops to write in with their experiences on the subject. Not to put too fine a point on it, the anecdotes (disseminated by an email blast) are some scary sh*t. I’ve grabbed a couple of close-calls for your dancing and dining pleasure. Suffice it to say, make reholstering practice part of your training regimen. And as I pointed out previously on Who Doesn’t Want to Get Shot by Cops, always remember that drawing your weapon makes you a target for the Boys in Blue. So, first up: an armed robbery call split seconds away from a major oopsie . . ." ...

"Washington CeaseFire’s Ralph Fascitelli made it official yesterday during his remarks launching the gun free zone project that discriminates against firearms owners in Seattle: there is a culture war that the Second Amendment Foundation’s Alan Gottlieb said gun owners will fight."

"The past two days have seen some candid statements coming from gun prohibitionists, including Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn, who told yesterday’s press event on Capitol Hill, 'Changing behavior takes time. Changing a culture of gun ownership, of gun carrying, or the use of a gun to settle a dispute; that’s going to take time.'" ...

"Former Australian Deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer, in reaction to the tragic murder of baseball player Chris Lane in Oklahoma last Friday, has decried the incident as a direct consequence of organizations that support gun rights such at the National Rifle Association. Lane claimed that the murder is 'the bitter harvest and legacy of the policies of the NRA that even blocked background checks for people buying guns at gunshows' and added that, 'People should take this into account before going to the United States.'"

The competition is held in the dead of night inbeautifulBend, Oregon, and there’s always tons o’ fun stuff to shoot, great stages, interesting products to check out and outstanding food. The catch is that it isn’t open to the public; you need to either be an awesome shooter or an outstanding writer to get tapped for an invite.

Troy Industries hires anti-gun, cowardly political hack Jody Weis as an instructor

Troy Industries announced in recent days the hiring of Jody Weis, the former anti-gun head of Chicago PD, as an instructor with their training division, “Troy Asymmetric”.

Imagine that: A high-profile firearms and firearms accessory manufacturer hiring a raving anti-gun political hack and touting it to the world! Even worse, hiring a coward at that.

Why do we say Jody Weis is a coward?

Because he ran from the sound of gunfire, post haste, when shots erupted as he was winding down a press conference in Chicago during his stint as police superintendent. It was so blatant that the officers at Chicago PD gave him a new nickname: J-Fled.

Serial MSNBC contributor Joy Reid even went so far as to refer to the NRA, one of the groups behind the recall, as 'Neo-Confederate.'"

"Wagner was slamming the NRA, which seemingly everyone at MSNBC loves to do, when Reid joined the conversation and introduced the racial element into the mix: ''Yeah, it’s interesting. There is a sort of Neo-Confederate thread that runs through these sort of pro-gun movements and the NRA movement.' [Video below. MP3 audio here.]" ...

... "The incident facing the Hollbrooks is not an isolated one. Children are far more likely to be killed by a gun accident than they are in a mass shooting. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, gun accidents in the home are 15 times more deadly to children as infections, and twice as deadly as cancer. If the ultimate goal for gun owners is to have autonomy over their own safety, perhaps eliminating guns in the home altogether could be a more logical answer." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: First, the reason kids are more likely to be killed accidentally than in a mass shooting is not that there are so many firearms accidents, but that there are so few mass shootings.
Second according to the CDC, from 2006 - 2010 there were almost 1 1/2 times as many kids killed from medical mistakes (called 'adverse effects') as were killed in accidental shootings.

Police in Ridgefield, Connecticut paid $29,500 last weekend to buy 103 clunkers.

Okay, there were a couple of half-way decent guns in there… four or so."

"Here’s what they paid:

$300 for a working rifle or shotgun.

$200 for a working handgun

$500 for a “post-ban” evil black rifle.

$750 for a pre-ban evil black rifle.

$20 for “high capacity” magazines.

Holy cow.

For that kind of money, if we had known about it, we would have sent some of our members on a road trip and doubled their take of unwanted guns and brought back a nice little windfall to be used to further the cause of freedom.
