"Mark your calendar for the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) the last weekend of September. The event runs Sept. 24 to Sept. 26, and will be held in San Francisco. (Yes, for gun owners' civil rights activists, that's a little like having a freedom conference in Teheran. The 'behind enemy lines' theme will continue next year, when the conference is likely to take place in Chicago.)"

"You'll meet hundreds of like-minded people, and representatives of virtually all the legitimate pro-gun organizations, including the vitally important state-level grassroots groups that get so much of the real work done in the state legislatures, and winning hearts and minds community by community." ...
 

Watch Northwest gun case become fodder for prohibitionists

"Expect a case now headed to federal court in Seattle to become something of a 'poster child' for gun prohibitionists demanding crackdowns on federally licensed firearms retailers on the presumption they are arms traffickers."

"Some gun dealers in the Southwest are already under scrutiny ... But now comes the very curious case of Oliver King and his apparent business partner, Amir Zarandi, and a gun shop in McMinnville that appears to have been nothing more than an empty office, at least for some months. Quoting the McMinnville newspaper, 'In October 2009, the landlord for the business told the ATF that the space leased to the company had not been occupied for three months and was being paid for with Canadian cashier's checks.'" ...

"Senator Jon Tester pushed the U.S. State Department to reconsider a decision denying the proposed sale of surplus firearms from South Korea to qualified buyers in the United States."

"... the State Department rejected South Korea's proposal ... over concerns that they 'could potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes.'"

"Tester said that reasoning 'doesn't add up.'"

"'I count myself among many gun rights advocates who fundamentally disagree with the State Department's reasoning,' Tester wrote to Clinton. 'Rejecting the responsible sale of legal firearms over hypothetical concerns that they could be used for 'illicit purposes' sets a dangerous precedent ..." ...

Ruger SR9c – Why Not A Full-Size Gun? (video available)

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Yes, I realize (now) that a 10-round magazine makes the Ruger CA and MA-compliant. D’oh! And I have an even better answer to my own question: the SR9c (with the 10-rounder) is ideal for concealed carry and combat-distance accuracy. You can then surmount the ammo problem by carrying two spare large (17) round mags for SHTF-i-tude. Yes BUT— is there anyone out there with a compact gun who hasn’t seriously pinched the bottom of their carry hand when jamming in a new mag? (The rabbi has an actual scar.) Anyway, great gat (review to follow). What’s your take on this conundrum?

"'America deserves better than to have its politics controlled by people who are far outside the mainstream on sensible gun laws. The Tea Party winners to this point are people who are wrong on the gun issue.'"

"This is easily one of the most incredible rifles I have ever seen. This work of art was built by the late Jack Smith of Sudbury, Mass. in his home machine shop. It is built on a custom falling-block Farquharson-style action. Mr Smith must have been a careful man because in addition to the falling breech block he incorporated a howitzer-style side swinging breech block for added safety."

"It features a rear tang sight and a Unertl 15X target scope mounted with custom-built aluminum rings. Because the gun is so big, the scope and iron sights are offset to left."

"The forearm and pistol grip are made from cast bronze. The stock and side panels are French walnut. Note the lack of a muzzlebrake." ...

"Gun Owners of America-backed candidate Christine O'Donnell completed a dramatic come-from-behind victory in Tuesday's Delaware Senate primary."

"O'Donnell was up against a member of Congress who earned the notorious distinction as the most anti-gun Republican in the House. But despite the backing of the Republican establishment in Washington, Mike Castle was handily defeated by pro-gunner O'Donnell."

"The implications of this win are huge, not only for the next session of Congress, but also in a potential lame-duck session later this year. Because this is a special election to fill the seat of Vice-President Joseph Biden, O'Donnell will take office immediately following the November election if she defeats her Democrat opponent." ...

"As we head toward mid-term elections, with control of Congress and many statewide and local offices on the line, where do Americans stand on key issues driving the political debate? Here's what the odds are telling us."

"The right to own guns often becomes a hot-button issue in campaigns. Many Americans share a deep-seated belief that the Second Amendment guarantees a personal right to bear arms. The Supreme Court recently took a step towards affirming that point of view, and after protests from the National Rifle Association, the Environmental Protection Agency refused to take up a petition from environmental groups seeking to outlaw the use of lead in bullets and shotgun shells." ...

"It's not enough that to simply identify your market. You have to have something concrete to sell, and the Tea Party candidates have done that."

"They're selling the ideas of a smaller, less intrusive government; lower deficits; lower taxes; an end to bailouts of Wall Street fat cats; a powerful and respected military; and on the social side, a return to 'traditional' American values like religiosity, reverence for the Second Amendment, and public decorum." ...

Remember the old Tom Lehrer hunting song? Part of it goes, "You just stand there looking cute. And when something moves, you shoot."

The National Rifle Association has taken notice of Republican gubernatorial nominee Rick Scott — and shot him an endorsement and — based on his responses to the group's questionnaire — a coveted 'A' rating.

Said Scott, "I am pleased to once again have the support of the NRA in this campaign. As a lifelong firearms enthusiast and hunter, I am glad that the NRA has chosen to endorse me. As governor, I will work tirelessly to ensure that Floridians’ Second Amendment rights are protected."

A former liquor enforcement officer in Pennsylvania who pleaded guilty to using her job to extort money has been sentenced to three years in prison.

She worked as an officer for the Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, an agency run by the state police.

"In the Old West, barkeepers asked cowpokes to check their six-guns at the door. Now the Oregon DMV is asking the same favor of everyone who comes in to renew driver's licenses or pick up new plates."

"For the past two weeks, the state Driver and Motor Vehicle Services has been distributing signs prohibiting firearms to all of its 64 field offices across Oregon."

"The signs cite Oregon law prohibiting guns in courts, state offices or other public buildings."

"DMV officials said the signs are a reaction to a series of ugly incidents over the past few years, along with an apparent increase in the number of DMV customers entering field offices with weapons." ...

KABA Note: As Dan Bidstrup notes in one of his articles, the only people these signs protect from are those law-abiding enough to obey them, sociopathic enough to shoot you if you tick them off and they have a gun with them, but rational enough that if they have to drive home for their gun they'll decide to have a sandwich instead.

"I understand people who consider gun rights groups like the NRA dangerous absolutists. If you're a gun control advocate, any organization that objects to a gun control law because it might lead to an abuse of power seems like one of those 'letting the perfect be the enemy of the good' deals. In other words, if one person is saved from gun crime, it's worth a hypothetical diminution of a constitutional right. Only c’mon. A law that allows the State to imprison a citizen for 90-days without bail for simple possession of an illegal firearm? It's no wonder that even the ... Massachusetts Supreme Court slapped down that statute back in May 2009. It's baaaack. And the Fall River Herald News thinks you—yes you—should get behind it." ...
