"New this year from Ceska zbrojovka Uhersky Brod (aka CZUB, aka CZ) is the polymer-framed, hammer-fired, full-sized P-09 Duty; big brother of the P-07. Having owned and tinkered with many of CZ’s pistol offerings, I had a good enough idea what to expect from the company to know I wanted to get my hands on a P-09 as soon as I could. Really, who could refuse the ergos, the reliability, and the 19+1 capacity? Let me just put it right up front here: this is a very good gun at a very competitive price . . ." ...

"'Ruger’s new American Rimfire has dropped. Press release after the jump. Click here to get the bullet point deets courtesy American Rifleman, who never met a gun they didn’t like. To be fair, at $329 whaddaya expect from a firearm maker who’s mastered the art of mass production? Unique Selling Point: '60-degree bolt provides ample scope clearance, while easy-to-use receiver-mounted bolt release allows the bolt to be readily removed without requiring a pull of the trigger, a unique safety feature among rimfire, bolt-action rifles.' Needless to say, TTAG’s looking to T & E Ruger’s great, great American . . ."

"Former President, and serial (chronic?) Oath-Breaking-Philanderer-in-Chief Bill Clinton burnished his already gleaming 'progressive' credentials Wednesday, when at the ceremony commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 'I have a dream' speech, he claimed that, 'A great democracy does not make it harder to vote than to buy an assault weapon.'" ...
 

From Syria to Seattle, the liberal mindset simply doesn’t get it

"Readers of today’s Seattle Times are all over Congressman Adam Smith for suggesting we ship arms to Syrian rebels and they are also having a healthy debate over a proposed Missouri law that nullifies federal gun law enforcement within the Show Me State, and President Barack Obama thinks rattling sabers will send a message to the Assad regime."

"All of these things, plus a reported Obama plan to block the return of military small arms – including lots of M-1 Garand rifles favored by collectors and competitive target shooters – draw the clear distinctions between clear thinking and nonsense disguised as 'common sense.'" ...

"While speaking at the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 'I Have a Dream' speech, former President Bill Clinton made the absurd claim that it is 'harder to vote than to buy an assault weapon.'"

"I appreciate the fact that the primary point of his comment was to criticize states which have passed voter ID laws but nonetheless, it is high time that we stop letting politicians get away with such patently absurd comments about gun rights. Otherwise, there will be those who actually believe them to be true."

"So … let’s set the record straight. Is it easier to buy an assault weapon than it is to vote?" ...

"College campuses are intended to be places of both intellect and tolerance, and as such, should actively discourage ignorance."

"On Monday, Aug. 26, members of the NMU College Republicans both sold and displayed T-shirts at Fall Fest with the words 'Suck my Glock' and an image of a handgun emblazoned on the front."

"The goal of the shirt seemed simple enough — by way of shock factor, members of the College Republicans’ organization expected to garner attention and increase membership sign-ups, goals that Vice President Brandon Zanon said were ultimately successful, as the organization had three times as many people sign up as in previous years." ...

"'Chicago: Making monsters' could be their new city slogan and we’ll tell you why: What kind of place raises young men who think it’s okay to beat a woman with a baseball bat, and then go on to beat a police officer over the head with it – and again when he’s already down?"

"You know, in the 'Wild West', where violent crime wasn’t but a fraction of what it is in today’s Chicago, they would have taken this individual to the local jail and hung him at sunrise and been done with it." ...

"The biggest fight in history over Americans’ right to keep and bear arms is being waged today. There were attacks on the Second Amendment in the early 1990s with the passage of the Brady bill and the 'assault weapons' ban. The gun-control battle of 2013, however, could easily see the greatest losses of Second Amendment rights ever."

"There are two key factors that make this assault more serious: billionaire New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who is willing to spend anything to win, and a longtime anti-gun fanatic Barack Obama, who is applying the full power of the presidential bully pulpit for the gun-grabbers’ cause." ...

"Months after gun control efforts crumbled in Congress, Vice President Joe Biden stood shoulder to shoulder Thursday with the attorney general and the top U.S. firearms official and declared the Obama administration would take two new steps to curb American gun violence."

"But the narrow, modest scope of those steps served as pointed reminders that without congressional backing, President Barack Obama's capacity to make a difference is severely inhibited." ...

"The Obama administration unexpectedly announced two new gun control measures on Thursday, including one that would curb the import of military surplus weapons -- in a move that could anger collectors."

"Vice President Biden announced the new measures Thursday morning. The new rules, announced while Washington was otherwise focused on the crisis in Syria, took the form of executive actions, which President Obama added to the list of 23 steps the White House already determined the president could take on his own." ...

"As the White House rolls out new plans meant to curb violent gun crime in America, residents in the state of Missouri may soon be able to bypass federal firearm laws."

"United States Vice President Joe Biden announced additional steps on Thursday that the Obama administration will move forward with as part of a gun-control initiative ramped-up following last year’s mass shooting at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school. At the same time, however, the Republican-controlled state legislature in Missouri is on the verge of defying both the governor and the US Constitution by pushing forward a bill that will prohibit local authorities from enacting[sic] federal gun laws." ...

"Not all social media traffic is created equal, as the Connecticut Republican Party is learning."

"Upon Tuesday's announcement that state Sen. Toni Boucher, R-Wilton, is exploring a run for governor, the state GOP's Facebook page has seen an uptick of traffic -- and we're not talking 'likes.'"

"A comment thread showing a photo of Boucher with state party Chairman Jerry Labriola Jr. was immediately overtaken by Second Amendment activists, who denounced the veteran lawmaker for her support of a statewide crackdown on assault weapons and high-capacity gun magazines in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre." ...

"Veteran Sweetwater detective William Garcia was so tight with one of his informants that their families would even vacation together, authorities say."

"But when the informant got caught making counterfeit credit cards, he turned on the police officer and played an undercover role for the FBI."

"On Wednesday, FBI anti-corruption agents arrested Garcia on charges of using phony credit cards himself at Miami Beach, Key Largo and other South Florida establishments, and stealing other people’s card numbers. A federal magistrate judge in Miami granted Garcia a $200,000 bond, and the Sweetwater Police Department suspended him without pay." ...

"Many anti-gunners would have it so that only law enforcement officers could have guns. Stories like the following one illustrate why that’s problematic (and not meant to be an insult to the majority of officers who do a good job handling their responsibilities on a daily basis)."

"Apparently, two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies were camping in Prado Regional Park in California. The deputies were there independently and at different campsites."

"At some point during the night, the two deputies got into an argument over loud music."

"That’s when the guns came out. The deputies reportedly fired multiple rounds into the air during the course of the disagreement." ...

... "Mayor Snyder, a retired Sarasota County deputy sheriff, sent a response - an instant classic."

"Here's Mayor Snyder's reply:"

"Mr. Horton the article is not about the City of Sarasota. If a private business owner wants to spend their own money to train and assist employees in protecting themselves I support them. I am aware of several businesses that have high levels of security in the area. I do not fear a business that arms it's employees. There are thousands of citizens in Sarasota County that have CCP's and I do not fear them. Violent crime in the State of Florida is at a 30 year low. I spent 25 years in law enforcement and the more the legislature supports the Second Amendment rights of it's citizens the safer we are." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The writings of scholars who have written on the subject are virtually united on the point that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, not simply the state national guards. — PROFESSOR GLENN HARLAN REYNOLDS
