"An amicus brief, submitted last week and filed yesterday in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia Circuit by the American Center for Law and Justice, argues “that the court has proper jurisdiction” in a lawsuit filed by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to compel Attorney General Eric Holder to turn over subpoenaed documents, and that a move by the Justice Department to dismiss the case on those grounds should not keep it from moving forward." ...

"Much to the chagrin of some gun-control proponents, firearms in America have reached a cultural mainstream not seen since America’s founding. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATFE) statistics reveal firearm ownership at an all-time high, while Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) statistics reveal violent crime rates are reaching all-time lows." ...

"Once again the liberal press and gun control zealots are going out of their way to make criminals look like saints and victims look like monsters."

"This can be seen in the case of George Zimmerman who defended himself from a savage beating at the hands of Trayvon Martin. The police on the scene, who witnessed first hand Zimmerman’s injuries, declared that he had acted in self defense and released him. But when the press heard that a man named George Zimmerman had shot a black 'kid' named Trayvon, they swooped in like media Valkyrie in order to paint this as a hate crime." ...

"Lola was enduring Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln; a scene where the President attends a play. 'Can someone just shoot him now so I can go home?' Lola whispered. Needless to say, Lola wasn’t serious. Hello? Lincoln is a movie. O.K. it’s also a form of torture forbidden under the terms of the Geneva Convention. Be that as it may, Lola knows a thing or two about guns. In fact, we recently struck a bargain: I’ll learn how to knit if Lola learns how to shoot. Meanwhile, after raising my fourth daughter from nappies to the cusp of double digits, I’ve figured out the three things every child needs to know about guns . . ." ...

"I thought I heard a black powder rifle go off yesterday behind my house and it made me smile. It took me back to times when I stayed in rural Virginia with my grandmother. Hunting in America is still a timeless and beautiful tradition. The people that brave the weather conditions, enjoy the pursuit, and endure the time sitting motionless with a gun are representatives of what is good in our country. Almost all the hunters that I know have a strong belief system and appreciation for life. There is a subset of hunters however that not much is known about. These are the Americans of African descents that hunt." ...

"By now you've probably heard about Defense Distributed, a Texas organization that aims to distribute files for making firearms on professional-grade 3D printers."

"The group also intends to scale these designs down to the point that they can be printed on cheaper hobbyist printers like MakerBot and Printrbot."

"It is currently illegal in the United States to make a weapon that the National Firearms Act would identify as a 'firearm' without a tax payment and ATF permission. ..." ...

"Where I spent most of my life, Thanksgiving was traditionally the opening day of deer season, and if the family had gathered in the country, it was not uncommon for some plinking in the back yard to follow the turkey and stuffing and all the rest. When I was a kid, the Thanksgiving posters at school and in the rest of the community depicted a Pilgrim holding a blunderbuss. (Where did folks think the traditional turkey came from, anyway?)"

"An image of a founder of American society holding a firearm is no longer politically correct in 'zero tolerance gun-free school zones,' but we who appreciate the backwoods home lifestyle still have guns as part of our tradition. ..." ...

"People of my generation used to get guns for Christmas -- lots and lots of guns. The Second Amendment was alive and well in the pages of the Sears-Roebuck Wish Book in 1962. What amazed me was that so many guys remembered exactly which gun and holster set they received. One person got the Paladin 'Have Gun Will Travel' set, complete with a set of calling cards with the chess piece and slogan and the whole nine yards. Another got the Mattel 'Fanner Fifty,' which is a term I had not thought of in, well, 50 years." ...

"The Second Amendment is once again under attack as many liberals and progressives are calling for new gun control measures in the aftermath of tragic shootings such as the incident which occurred earlier this year at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater."

"The argument being made is that stricter gun control laws are needed in order to prevent these types of tragic incidents. Defenders of the Second Amendment are arguing that current gun control laws are sufficient and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is a sacred tradition and liberty in our nation which must be honored and protected." ...

"MANDEVILLE, LA - Does the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) have a bias against guns and gun makers? Two weeks ago that would have sounded crazy, but this week many shooters are convinced that it’s true. Hundreds of hunts and shoots are held as fundraisers for the WWP, and gun companies donate to WWP for its projects. How could it be that this $185 million (2013 projected revenue) outfit could be anti-gun? . . ." ...

"Are you a concealed carry permit holder? Are you of the opinion that a 9mm bullet can stop a threat? Can you learn to draw and shoot with only two fingers on the grip? Then have I got a gun for you! If you answered yes to all of those questions, there aren’t many handguns that can beat a Glock 26. The model we’re talking about here, the Gen 4, has quickly becoming my preferred carry gun (over my previous fave, a Gen 4 G19). Sometimes referred to as the 'Baby Glock', this little pistol packs 10+1 rounds of parabellum in a convenient little double stack configuration. Sporting the typical Glock – er – style, this thing is all business . . ." ...

The standard designs were ripe for some innovation so that is just what JAVRAN did." ...

"Gun violence must be treated as a public-health issue — such as alcohol, smoking and traffic — say people concerned about gun-related death rates from mass shootings and random shots nationwide."

"'Guns are where tobacco was in the 1950s,' said Garen Wintemute, director of the Violence Prevention Research Program, who practices emergency medicine at the [UC] Davis School of Medicine. 'There's a little bit of science and a great deal of reluctance to do anything with the results.'"

"'I can’t fathom the idea of going to the mall and just thinking that under that coat over there, or in that purse, there might be a weapon,' said Ald. Ricardo Munoz of the 22nd Ward. 'We cannot allow concealed carry to be the law of the land.'"

"Coalition members cited pressure from the National Rifle Association and gun-rights activists across Illinois for their growing concern. ..." ...

Submitter's Note: Fortunately for Ricardo, as an alderman he is exempt from the state's concealed carry restrictions; unfortunately for him, his state is surrounded by "shall-issue" states so if he hits a mall in Wisconsin or Indiana "that coat over there or that purse" just might contain a lawfully carried pistol.
