... "Let’s explore what it means for Holder and 'upper levels of the Justice Department' not to have known about what he dismisses as 'this thing,' although we’ll have to suspend what’s been documented to date about Assistant Attorney General (and direct report to Holder) Lanny Breuer, and National Security Council Director of North American Affairs Kevin O'Reilly (as well as the President’s role as a statutory attendee of NSC meetings)." ...

"He accurately predicted that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg would blame someone else for the failure of his anti-gun policies. The blame game is spreading to engulf the investigation of the Nevada shooting, which this column yesterday suggested would become a 'blame-the-gun' hate fest." ...

"A wise old man once told me that real pistols only came in one configuration: blued steel and walnut grips. The very same man bandied about phrases like 'nickel plated sissy pistol' and believed that the .45 ACP was the alpha and omega. When 'combat tupperware' started to become en vogue he thought it was a sign of the apocalypse. When Ruger released their polymer framed LCR revolver, he let loose a string of epithets that would have even made Howard Stern blush. Revolvers were made from metal, end of story. While I always took what he said with a grain of salt, I tended to agree with him on this point. Sorry. I should have said 'agreed' . . ." ...

"I like to try and make it to at least 10 firearms competitions a year, more if the budget allows. For each of the different rifle competitions I have a series of decisions to make every single time I go to one. Which upper should I use? ... Do I want iron sights, a red dot, or the scope? The answers depend ... and can often change in the middle of a week. After one of those mid-week emergency trips to the range to re-zero my rifle for a new optic, I thought to myself 'self, there HAS to be a way I can just swap optics without zeroing the rifle.' Turns out I’m not the only one who had that thought, as Alamo Four Star has a line of mounts and rail adapters that do exactly that…

To wit: we adored the Henry Big Boy .44 Magnum rifle. But I did experience one small problem: the rear sight ramp kept sliding loose under the rifle’s surprisingly stout recoil. I emailed Henry Repeating Arms Co. on August 25th to ask about a repair, using the 'Contact Us' page on Henry’s website, and I told them what was wrong with the rifle . . ." ...

"There are three types of accuracy. Scientific accuracy: a gun’s ability to hit what it’s aimed at from a bench rest when fired by Number Five (yes, he’s still alive). Practical accuracy: any given shooter’s ability to hit a target with a particular gun at a gun range. And SHTF accuracy: the gun’s utility for a shooter who’s firing his weapon like a New York City or Chicago cop. The above video is a practical accuracy shootout between a $3080 Wilson Combat Bill Wilson Carry Pistol and a $539 Glock 30. ... I fired Winchester White Box .45 ammo from five yards. I’m an OK shot ... I’m tuned-in to both the 1911 breaking glass rod single-action trigger and the Glock’s controllable CLICK reset striker-fired go pedal. And the winner is . . ." ...

... "What Sebastian so appropriately called disgusting is the Brady Campaign's attempt to use the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 Terror Attack to push [a bill] which would ban the sale of a firearm to anyone on the FBI's secret Terror Watch List. Both bills are of dubious constitutionality and both would abrogate your right to due process under the law."

"One of the examples cited by the Brady Campaign is the case of Major Nidal Hasan who perpetrated the massacre at Fort Hood. They cite his case as an example of someone who would have been prevented from purchasing a firearm under either bill. To think that a serving Army Officer and Physician would have been placed any sort of a terror watch list is utter nonsense. ..." ...

"In a perfect world, everybody takes their oaths of office seriously, tends to their knitting, and works hard as servants of We the People. Here’s the world U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder lives in: 'The notion that somehow or other this thing [the Gunwalker scandal] reaches into the upper levels of the Justice Department is something that . . .

"In the McDonald decision, the United States Supreme Court struck down Chicago’s handgun ban. Within days, Mayor Daley’s City Council passed gun registration regulations subverting both the intent and the letter of the law. The Second Amendment Foundation picked-off the most obvious contravention: a gun range ban in a city that requires its citizens to qualify at a gun range to exercise their Supreme Court-affirmed right to keep and bear arms. As that lawsuit headed to its inevitable conclusion ('What are you, meshugga?), the post-Daley City Council weaseled. They loosened the ban on gun ranges just enough to avoid legal censure, but not enough so that anyone would actually open a range. Yesterday, they played Catch-22 . . ." ...

"Gun activists thought they found the Holy Grail in 2008 when the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in the District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment guaranteed an individual's right to own a firearm unconnected to military service. The court followed with McDonald v. Chicago, holding that the amendment applies not just to gun control laws passed by Congress, but also to local and state laws."

"Gun activists spotted their green light to challenge gun restrictions and unleashed a deluge of lawsuits. The unexpected happened. They're losing in the lower courts." ...

Submitter's Note: First, in the Heller decision all nine Justices agreed that the Second protects an individual right. Second, the lower court losses were not unexpected. Lower courts are very reluctant to establish precedents, so they tend to rule extremely conservatively on controversial issues.
