"I write to you today with the upmost concern. Congress is out of Washington on their summer vacation that will last thru the month of August."

"This is the perfect time for Obama to pursue his anti-gun agenda.
Jay Carney assured the public that Obama will sign the UN Arms Trade Treaty 'before the end of August…We believe it’s in the interest of the United States.'"

"Obama has desperately tried to push for gun control at the city, state, and federal level. Americans have stood up for their Second Amendment rights and defeated his efforts thus far. Now that Congress is not present in Washington, Obama is trying to seize this opportunity to push for GLOBAL gun control." ...

"The California Legislature is on the verge of passing a bill banning the use of traditional ammunition – bullets containing lead – for hunting statewide."

"The justification for the ban is that the giant, endangered carrion eater, the California Condor, is seriously threatened by lead poisoning from ingesting bullet fragments in game animals. ... Even though research into the problem was extremely sketchy, in 2007, the California Legislature bypassed the scientific review process of the state’s Fish and Game Commission, and instituted a ban on the use of common, lead-based bullets in areas where the condors live and feed."

"The ban failed to get results. Even though 99 percent of California hunters complied with the ban, lead levels in condors actually went up ..." ...

"In recent months, several traditionally anti-gun states, and Colorado, have enacted laws that abuse the rights of the average citizen and offend their corporate citizens. The situation has led to an exodus of gun manufacturers to more friendly climes, with anti-gun states losing the significant tax revenue and jobs these companies provide."

"Amongst the companies that have chosen to relocate is Magpul Industries of Erie, Colo., a manufacturer of AR-15 parts, accessories and magazines. Magpul warned the state in February that the company would move if legislation banning standard capacity magazines passed. In March, Gov. Hickenlooper signed a ban, and Magpul set out in search of a new home, possibly in Texas." ...

... "In 1988, SIG released the P228 model. This gun was shorter in length and height than the P226, but with a 13 round magazine, only gave up two rounds of capacity ... in its time, it was the smallest full capacity 9mm available. The compact size was a hit with police and citizen buyers and as would be expected started to draw attention from the military. After a series of evaluations, the military selected the P228 to be used by its members needing a more compact gun and was designated the M11. Today, it is used by military investigators in the Army, Air Force, and Navy as well as by DOD personnel. From what I have been able to gather, it appears that it is finding favor with naval aviators as well ..." ...

"Jason R. Hanson writes:"

"In this month’s American Rifleman, The Armed Citizen section tells of a woman and her son cut off by a vehicle. The car suddenly stopped in front of them. A man got out, ripped the woman from her vehicle and put a knife to her throat. Thankfully, a concealed carry licensee witnessed the incident and intervened. When the perp saw the Good Samaritan approaching with a gun, he ran away and was later arrested. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how irrational people can become behind the wheel. All it takes is one lunatic to come after you. Which is why it’s critical to always have your gun with you while driving . . ." ...

"So here I am blogging at Starbucks in Austin, carrying concealed in the liberal island in the heart of red state Texas. The city of tall men and beautiful women may not be entirely representative of Starbucks foot traffic around the country but a random survey of a dozen of their caffeine palaces reveals that the Moms Demand Action anti-ballistic boycott organized has had no effect whatsoever on Starbucks bottom line. Not that the boycott was the point, exactly. The anti-gunners asked supporters to forgo their Joe and donate the money to MDA instead. Anyway, as always, the media’s golden child gun grabbers will garner some attention for their stance. But here in the real world . . ." ...

Yup, the murderer (born 1977) is actively seeking a relationship on the Plenty of Fish dating service. ... Anyway, here’s the main point: there’s no way that Mr. Lennon wrote that Atlantic pro-gun control ed without copious (unattributed) editorial intervention. Check out the spelling, punctuation and word choice in his 'About Me' after the jump. Meanwhile, I’ve got a few choice words of my own for the Monthly’s editors: 'panacea' my ass. Thanks for giving this killer a national forum for dissing Americans’ right to keep and bear arms. Not . . ." ...

"With apologies to the late, great Dinah Washington, ... we marvel at what a difference a year has made for Josh Horwitz, of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, formerly known as the National Coalition to Ban Handguns."

"Last year, Horwitz told ... ABC News, 'I think the proliferation of firearms has made us more dangerous.' How many times have we heard that sort of line from the anti-gun crowd, as violent crime rates have plummeted to their lowest point in decades?"

"But this month ... Horwitz has changed his tune ... Now, instead of claiming that violent crime correlates to the number of guns owned by the American people, Horwitz claims that crime correlates to the number of guns sold without a background check." ...

ational Firearms Act was enacted in the 1930s to try and keep gangsters from getting 'dangerous' firearms. It was one of the first gun control laws on the federal level ... Even if you live in a state that doesn’t outlaw the possession of a machine gun or a silencer, you still need to have the 'chief law enforcement officer' for your area sign off on your paperwork in order to get NFA-covered items. And if they don’t (or won’t) sign off, it’s a de facto ban in that area. The law permits you to own the items, but the opinion of a single person can override the law. Fortunately, there’s a way around that obstacle: form a gun trust. And it looks like the White House and the ATF are about to try and shut off that option . . ." ...

"The city of Nelson has agreed to settle a lawsuit with the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence by agreeing a contentious gun ordinance will not be enforced."

"The suit is over the city’s controversial law loosely requiring all 'heads of household' within the one-and-a-half square mile town to own a firearm."

"As the sole concession by the city of Nelson in the lawsuit, acting Mayor Jonathan Bishop said Wednesday that the City Council has agreed to amend the text of the Family Protection Ordinance to guarantee that it will never be enforced."

"Bishop said although Nelson officials have said repeatedly that the ordinance was only meant as a crime deterrent and would never be enforced, 'Now, it’s just written down.'" ...

"State Sen. Lois Wolk doesn't understand the issue of violence in California ("Wolk's gun bill makes progress," Aug. 14). She is getting bad and inaccurate advice. She thinks the way to address criminal violence is to attack law-abiding gun owners, not the perpetrators."

"Senate Bill 755 will not prevent violence. It will further restrict law-abiding gun owners from exercising our Constitutional rights. SB 755 will greatly expand unauthorized power at a time when we need to reduce the power and reach of government. If we give government an inch of authority, it will take a mile of unauthorized power." ...

"The famously left-leaning 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against the federal government over its gun restrictions, ruling the plaintiffs failed to state a claim."

"The expected decision now clears the way for a battle that could end up in the U.S. Supreme Court over state sovereignty, alleged regulatory overreach, the right to self-defense and even the compact under which Montana became a state."

"'This was about as good of a ruling as we could have expected from the Ninth Circuit.

... "I know of no legitimate statutory authority under which school and police officials could lawfully subject minor citizens to such treatment without knowledge and consent, and as such, the perpetrators’ motives notwithstanding, the act of displaying a weapon, taking them hostage, binding their wrists and subjecting them to terror are criminal acts that demand prosecution. ... You are now on notice that very real terror crimes are suspected of having been committed by these boneheads. The evidence is before you and I intend to inform others that you have been notified.
