... "Why in the world is MAIG releasing this report now, right before the November elections, when gun owners are galvanized to vote like I haven't seen since 1994? Is Bloomberg deluded enough to think this is going to do anything but further steel gun owner resolve? Is he that desperate for a voice on the national scene, and is he that egotistical about his influence with the masses that he thinks this is going to get him his way?" ...

It was off to a roaring start, and it ended with more bang for the buck than one might imagine; the 25th annual Gun Rights Policy Conference generated excitement, lots of networking, an d a reminder and warning that the Second Amendment is not just about guns."

"Sunday's program opened with a presentation by the folks at Knife Rights, a fledgling group that is now doing battle with a prosecutor in New York over the Draconian knife rules he has imposed. The organization got full support from those attending GRPC, when its founder, Doug Ritter, told the audience, 'It is our Second Amendment, too.'" ...

"As I walked to class, a yellow flier pinned on a bulletin board caught my eye. The brightly colored piece of paper announced the time and place for the next Utah Concealed Firearm Permit Course. For the discounted price of $39.99, I could complete the most difficult step in the process of obtaining a concealed weapons permit, meaning I could be carting my own weapon to class ..." ...

"... [A]ccording to the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Utah is the only state that mandates the allowance of weapons on college and university campuses."

"As I walk around campus, I find myself wondering if the people around me are in possession of concealed weapons. The truth is that you never know, and that is part of the danger ..."

KABA Note: Danger? So this is why there have been so many (none) campus shooting sprees in Utah?
 

NYC Cops "Allow" Howard Stern, Donald Trump to Carry Guns

... "... Whether there is in fact an increase in pistol-packin' celebs (and whether the Donald fils or Alexis Stewart count as celebs), what's interesting is the relative ease with which the well-known and well-connected - even reportedly muy caliente-tempered singer Marc Anthony - get permits denied mere mortals. The NYPD screens folks and doles out the right to carry very selectively. Any sort of right shouldn't be subject to such official caprice. And if the police is making decisions, they should take note of Glenn Instanpundit Reynolds' ironic insight that celebs are 'Not a threat to public safety like ordinary Americans getting gun permits . . . because if there’s one thing that celebrities are, it's responsible.'" ...

Submitter's note: Stereotypes are everywhere in this incident. So much for "dry" firing. Prison is VERY appropriate for this idiot. How many basic rules of gun safety were violated? Yet the "schools" that refuse to teach gun safety love to blame the guns for stuff like this.

"Will the 2011 Senate be friendlier to the Second Amendment than the current Senate? While the 2010 election will result in gains for Republicans, both parties contain pro-rights and anti-rights candidates. In 2006 and 2008, this meant that the anti-Republican deluge did little harm to the net numbers of Second Amendment supporters in Congress." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. — Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
