"Having been called all kinds of names over the years by gun prohibitionists, one might think that the rhetoric had run out, but now gun owners and hunters are being compared to terrorists."

"New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg unloaded Monday at Penn Station, where he was having a hissy fit over a move by the U.S. Senate to force Amtrak to allow passengers to travel with firearms in their checked baggage, same as travelers do virtually every day while flying."

"Bloomberg, co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns ... and an anti-gun extremist, declared during an appearance, 'This has nothing to do with the right to bear arms, and everything to do with keeping our country safe from terrorists.'" ...

"We've heard from Jenny Price before. I have responded before, too: Another reporter gets it wrong in anger and grief, Mens News Daily, August 14, 2006."

"In 2006, Ms. Price angrily attacked gun owners after her brother and fiancé were shot to death. She filed an article about how gun owners responded to her aggression, as if theirs were an unreasonable response; she had no idea how she was the aggressor in that public altercation. She is still blaming the iron instead of the volition and the madness of the criminals. ..." ...

... "In sum, one impact of the illegal alien population in the United States is that the House of Representatives is likely to be even more pro-gun after the 2010 census. And that's great news for the gun rights movement, buoyed by Congress' recent legalization of gun carry in National Parks (to take effect in February, 2010) and now aiming to get Congress to pull the trigger on more pro-gun legislation, such as repealing the District of Columbia’s onerous gun registration scheme and encouraging the several states to accept each other’s handgun carry permits just like they already do for driver’s licenses." ...

"One of the issues missing from the 2010 platform for conservatives, libertarians and independents is how our authority is backed as the sovereign under our system of self-rule. In the U.S., the government is not the sovereign, the people are the sovereign. As with all nations, the sovereign has a monopoly on all lethal force. This includes civilian oversight of the military, supervision of law enforcement, the right to self-defense, defense of another, and powers of citizen arrest."

"More than a theory of interpretation, the second amendment’s words of art in well regulated militia meant every single adult be armed, since the concept of a national guard was not contemplated for another 130 years after the signing. ..." ...

"Last week, the U.S. Senate approved an amendment to a transportation and housing bill that would require Amtrak to once again permit passengers to transport unloaded firearms in their checked baggage, or lose its $1.6 billion annual federal funding. Before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and the subsequent Madrid train bombing, transporting locked, unloaded firearms in one's checked baggage on Amtrak was uncontroversial. It was only after guns were not used to kill thousands of people in those two atrocities that the current total ban of firearms was put in place." ...

"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence claims it is not a 'gun ban' organization: 'Brady believes that a safer America can be achieved without banning guns.' They simply want to 'keep dangerous weapons out of the wrong hands, including criminals and children.'"

Before you even begin to load rounds for your rifle you must size the brass for length, bore out the flash hole, ream the primer pocket, chamfer the mouth of the brass and then go through the laborious task of weighing each brass case into groups so that the powder you are loading fills the case exacly the same. ..."

"Nosler has done all the case prep, including case weight sorting, and is selling that brass for reloading. I recommend you start with 200 cases and keep them separate from any others of the same caliber that you may have in stock." ...

"GUNS DON'T kill people, it's true. Bullets do."

"'Without ammo, a handgun is only good for pistol-whipping someone,' notes Assemblyman Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles. 'Ammo is the lifeblood of a handgun.'"

"On the last day of the regular legislative session, de Leon narrowly won passage of a bill to regulate sales of handgun ammunition." ...

"De Leon's bill, AB 962, would make it illegal to knowingly sell handgun ammunition to criminals. Strangely, de Leon says, it's against the law for criminals to possess ammo but not for someone to sell it to them knowing they are criminals. The bill also would prohibit hard-core gang members — those under court restrictions — from possessing handgun bullets." ...

"When he turned, he saw a bear charging full speed at him from less than 20 yards away. Backpedaling, Brush was able to fire his gun once or twice. It was enough. The bear dropped dead."

"'Came with zero warning,' Brush told the Anchorage Daily News ... 'No woof, no popping of the teeth, no standing up, nothing like what you think.'"

"Brush said the brown bear, which he estimated at more than 900 pounds, looked starved and probably saw him and his dogs as dinner."
