"For the fourth consecutive year, according to figures released this week by the FBI, the estimated number of violent crimes declined in 2010, while – according to other data from the National Instant Check System and National Shooting Sports Foundation – gun sales have been climbing." ...

"One might reasonably ask the gun prohibitionist lobby, which includes the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the Violence Policy Center and Washington CeaseFire, how this can be. Those groups have been lamenting for years that more guns in circulation will translate to more violent crime. Fewer people appear to be listening." ...

"In a clear sign the 2012 presidential election campaign is in full swing, the Obama campaign launched a new website this week: AttackWatch.com."

"'The purpose of the site is to give Obama supporters a way to report "attacks" on the president, implying that any criticism is based on lies or misinformation."

"Let's leave aside for the moment the disturbing notion of a president of the United States setting up a web site so that his supporters can "report" on the statements and activities of his opponents. When it comes to firearms issues, it`s this site that is misrepresenting President Obama`s record on guns." ...

"Conservative journalist and perennial thorn in the 'progressives' side Andrew Breitbart has become the latest 'insurrectionist,' according to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV):"
"'Insurrectionism Timeline' updated w/ Breitbart's fantasy about shooting war against Americans who disagree w/ him."
"We've talked about their little 'Insurrectionism Timeline' before. That's where they chronicle every instance they can find (well--not every instance--they try to stick only to the 'insurrectionism' of the 'right wing') of what they consider 'insurrectionist rhetoric,' starting (for some reason), with the Supreme Court's Heller decision. Yes--to CSGV, the United States Supreme Court is 'insurrectionist.'" ...

"Prior to my running firearm and military magazines and now a firearms industry public relation company I was literally raised in retail sporting goods operations."

"Early on in my dads store I learned that customer relations is certainly key."

"Later in life ... I managed a large (at that time) sporting goods store for a major retail chain."

"I still like going to gun shops and sporting goods stores to just see how they do what they do. While in the particular store I listen in on the interactions between customers and sales people and check out the store operation in general. I wish I could say things are better than my retail days, but I think there is a lot of room for improvement." ...

... "The Heritage Foundation had a great piece today, their Morning Bell blog, on all of the sudden scandals and Obama investigations going on. How many of you know that Obama's under investigation on three separate matters right now? ... A cross-border gunrunning scandal. That's Fast and Furious. And everybody knows what that was about. That was a back door attempt undermining the Second Amendment. The purpose of Fast and Furious was to get American guns, guns purchased in American gun stores in the hands of Mexican drug cartel thugs who would then use those American guns to kill people, which they did. The reaction was supposed to be genuine outrage on the part of the American people. ..." ...

"Today’s Seattle Times and Associated Press report about the dumping of 35 bodies beneath a highway overpass near downtown Veracruz city is proof enough that the drug cartel war in Mexico is far from over, and one is left to wonder if any guns from Operation Fast and Furious played a part in those slayings."

"That was, after all, one of the concerns that apparently panicked people involved in the botched operation after Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in January; whether one of 'their' guns was involved." ...

Unfortunately, the Obama administration is opposing the bill and is joined by several groups with a history of opposing sound wildlife management and other conservation principles."

Under the proposal, journalists would need to submit a complaint to the court of common pleas in order to request permission to view the records. The court would then hold a public hearing, at which evidence could be presented by the journalist as to how being allowed to view to the records would serve the public interest." ...

The KOMO 4 Problem Solvers have discovered that tens of thousands of police dash-cam videos —potentially critical evidence— have vanished from the Seattle Police Department.

It's just one example of why KOMO News is suing the Seattle Police Department for not releasing public records that citizens are supposed to be able to see. We spent more than a year investigating the department and fighting, on the public's behalf, for access to police videos and the department's video catalogue. As part of that investigation we discovered the missing videos.

Eric Rachner's run in with the police shows why these videos are so important.

"Go ahead and turn around, put your hands behind your back," a police officer is heard saying on video r

"Indiana, in case you hadn't noticed, has been flexing its muscles when it comes to gun laws, basically telling local communities they have no say. Businesses, for example, are no longer allowed to tell employees they can't have guns in their cars parked in the company lot. And except for buildings that have courtrooms, cities can't forbid guns anywhere on public property – not parks, not libraries, not city council chambers. This has some cities rolling back their gun-control ordinances and police in every jurisdiction wondering what to do." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
What is ominous is the ease with which some people go from saying that they don't like something to saying that the government should forbid it. When you go down that road, don't expect freedom to survive very long. — Thomas Sowell
