"In 1976, my family had moved across the state. I’d left all of my friends behind. In December of that year I had the chance to go back for the Christmas holidays and spend a week at my best buddy’s house. We’ll call him T. We’d planned and plotted what we’d do when we got together. We knew it was going to be a week to remember. I had no idea how right we were . . ."

"T’s dad had taught us to clean his handguns. We were both well versed in the sequence: clear, disassemble, reassemble, test, load and put away. We needed money for the movies. So we jumped at his father’s offer to pay us to clean his firearms. T was going to clean the Luger. I was working on a Webley revolver." ...

"A couple of weeks ago, in the aftermath of a couple of prominent mass shootings, David Larson of Albert Lea, MN asked 'Don’t gun owners want protection?' Well of course we do David! This 'we' in particular would like protection from blood-dancing opportunists who attempt to use tragedies like the Tucson, Aurora or VA Tech shootings to push an anti-gun, anti-gun-owner agenda. But I don’t think that’s exactly what David meant . . ." ...

"Back in the day, Johnny Cash had a hit song, 'One Piece at a Time' in which he told the story of working on a car assembly line, and taking home the pieces to build his own Caddilac, one piece at a time. It took so many years to bring home all the parts, he had a car that stretched over 20 model years, and looked nothing like what he thought it would. ..."

"The position of guns in our society reminds me of that song. We all have a picture in our minds of what gun rights and the gun culture should look like. But we can’t get what we have a picture of in our mind all at once; in the song, the guy couldn’t afford it, in our case, it just does not exist ..."

"The United Nations is currently hosting its second conference in as many months aimed at regulating illicit arms trafficking. July’s conference strived, albeit unsuccessfully, to reach consensus on a binding international treaty that would regulate the global arms trade as a whole. The conference currently underway aims only to review the progress made by UN member nations individually and the international community as a whole in terms of the implementation of an action plan adopted by consensus in 2001 in order to combat the illegal trade of small arms and light weapons." ...

Opponents declared guns were dangerous and there is no need for them in parks. Bailey’s case proved them all wrong." ...

"The Recon 1 is one of Cold Steel‘s newest tactical folders. First of all, this is a big folding knife and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Blade length is four inches, but it is still relatively light considering the four inch blade since it doesn’t use steel liners in the handle. You can use it for an EDC knife (I do), but honestly, this is a knife best suited for the outdoors. The best feature of the knife is the handle. It’s made out of G-10, but the shape fits my hand perfectly, and the texture is outstanding. More on that later." ...

"The National Shooting Sports Federation (NSSF) is the firearms industry lobby group. The NSSF does some stellar work, both in terms of legislative campaigning and dealer education. The NSSF’s 'Don’t Lie for the Other Guy' campaign has done more to eliminate 'straw purchasing' than the $2b-per-year ATF (which instigated the practice through Operation Fast and Furious). The video above is designed to help gun dealers sell professionally and effectively. With all due respect, as a former sales trainer whose gun blog is read by hundreds of gun dealers and salespeople, I offer the following as an addendum to the techniques described above. In other words, here’s how I think dealers should sell a gun . . ." ...

"After four mass shootings in the United States in as many weeks, 'we can do better than this,' said Brady, recalling the convention he attended 32 years ago that nominated Reagan." ...

"The Republican Party Platform has gotten a number of mentions for how pro-gun it is from both the blogosphere as well as the mainstream media. Of course, Pravda on the Potomac aka the Washington Post has to headline their story, "In wake of mass shootings, Republican Party platforms calls for expanded rights for gun owners". The new head of the Brady Campaign, Dan Gross, tells the Post that "by making these changes, Republican leaders have 'put themselves farther out of touch with their constituents.'" Dan, of course, is merely wishing that were true."

"So what does the Republican Platform - We The People: A Restoration of Constitutional Government - really say about firearms and gun rights? You can see for yourself below." ...

"The Republicans that gathered in Tampa have adopted the party's most right-wing platform since the GOP was founded 158 years ago."

"Many news organizations went back and compared this platform with the party's earlier positions, particularly those of 1980 on which Ronald Reagan ran."

"The Reagan platform carried a general endorsement of the Second Amendment's right to keep and bear arms. But the 2012 version opposes any restrictions on 'the capacity of (ammunition) clips or magazines.' It also expands the circumstances under which Americans can kill each other by broadening the so-called 'stand your ground" doctrine to a "fundamental right to self-defense wherever a law-abiding citizen has a legal right to be.'" ...

"Republicans have strengthened the pro-gun-rights portion of their party platform, including a new call for unlimited bullet capacities in guns, in a defiant response to criticism that followed recent mass shootings at a Colorado cinema and an Arizona congresswoman's gathering."

"The 2012 platform, approved this week by GOP convention-goers who nominated Mitt Romney for president, also endorses "stand your ground" rights for gun owners. That legal concept, which says gun bearers don't have to retreat if they feel threatened in a public place, drew national attention after February's fatal shooting of an unarmed Florida teenager by a neighborhood watch volunteer." ...

"This past Tuesday, a huge list of laws longer than your rifle just went into effect.

Even if you don’t live in Missouri you should still check it out -- these new laws strip away gun control restrictions."

"The biggest victory for gun owners comes from HB 1657, which makes it easier for some people to obtain concealed carry endorsements and gives people with CCW permits more freedom." ...
