"'Well, if I remember right, I told them to 'lock their doors and load their guns,' Jim Penman told the network affiliate." ...

"Incrementalism has proved depressingly effective as a tool for getting most people to quietly surrender their rights piecemeal. For gradually habituating them to an ever-diminishing circle of liberty. When the circle finally closes and their rights no longer exist at all, they hardly notice ..."

"The final surrender is met with a shrug rather than a scream of outrage." ...

"This is how the citizens of the United States will be disarmed."

"No sudden, mass ban or attempt at confiscation – because that would probably lead to open violence on a large scale and they – people like Dear Leader Obama and his Vyshinsky, AG Eric Holder, know this."

"So, instead, they will first pass 'reasonable' restrictions." ...

"The zombie craze may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the gun rights community, and a nightmare for gun grabbers." ...

... "Hagler wastes little time expressing his belief that the explanation lies solely in the last sentence above, spending one sentence each dismissing a potential 'assault weapons' ban (and conveniently ignoring the possibility that Obama would try to impose such a ban despite Congress and the will of the American people) or UN treaty as motivation behind the enormous sales figures. In contrast, he mentions fear of a 'black liberal president' six times in his one-page column, and simply 'Black President' one time each in the title and photo caption." ...

"An anti-gun owner initiative considered in Washington could lead to massive civil disobedience and a severe domestic crisis, gun law expert John M. Snyder warned on Friday."

"'According to confidential information,' he said, 'forces linked with the administration suggest the government classify semiautomatic firearms and multiple capacity ammunition feeding devices as Title 2 National Firearms Act items under the Gun Control Act of 1968."

"Americans familiar with federal gun laws understand that under this scenario, semiautomatics and high capacity magazines could be acquired only with great difficulty and at great expense by America’s estimated 100 million law-abiding firearms owners, notes Snyder. ..." ...
 

Benelli’s M4 Matches Well With the PDX1 Defender

"Synonymous with the USMC since 1998, the Benelli M4 has been a true workhorse for close-quarter and short range combat. Its reputation has been built on its durability, accuracy, and how well it cycles a variety of rounds, from low-power non-lethal cartridges, such as those sending rubber bullet and rubber buckshot, all the way up to very lethal, hi-power rounds like rifled slugs and saboted slugs. If you remember in the 1980s, how demoralizing it was for the bad guys to see their defensive brick or cinderblock wall falling away from them because the good guys were sending the new-at-the time, Brenneke saboted 12 gauge slug their way, you were immediately converted as I was!" ...
 

Springfield Armory TRP 1911: "Makes a great tool even better" (video available)

"The 1911, to many shooters, seems a bit antiquated. At more than 100 years old, the 1911 stands as an icon of past wars. It is a symbol. Yet people keep trying to make it new, as if changing up some of the materials, or altering the lines a little bit might convince the nonbelievers that the 1911 is still relevant. An aluminum or polymer receiver. A bobbed grip. A new caliber."

"I'm a believer. I don't need any of these refinements to see the beauty and incredible efficiency of the 1911. And the folks at Springfield Armory seem to agree with me. They're dedicated to the 1911. This time last year, I was smitten with their Range Officer. That gun comes in around $800, and shoots way out of its price range. ..." ...

"My grandparents lived in the 'filet mignon' part of the city. We resided in the 'hamburger/hotdog' section. I enjoyed sleepovers with the old folks because, although foreigners, today they would be called cool. Grandpa, a blue-ribbon chef, prepared special fare for me on request. I could order up a rack of lamb followed by Baked Alaska at any time. Down on the corner lived Jim Martin, older than I, and tolerant of my incessant and often ill-designed shooting questions. Jim allowed me to tag along on jackrabbit safaris."

"A balanced approach to gun control in the United States would require the warring sides to agree on several contentious issues. Conservative gun-rights advocates should acknowledge that if more states had stringent universal background checks—or if a federal law put these in place—more guns would be kept out of the hands of criminals and the dangerously mentally unstable1. They should also acknowledge that requiring background checks on buyers at gun shows would not represent a threat to the Constitution2. ..." ...

"A recent article in The Atlantic, 'The Case for More Guns (And More Gun Control),' makes a perhaps surprisingly sincere effort in seeking balance in the gun rights/'gun control' debate. Author Jeffrey Goldberg makes no effort to hide his desire for various infringements on that which shall not be infringed--banning private sales, more intrusive background checks on prospective buyers, etc. On the other hand, he seems to have accepted (if without enthusiasm) that people equipped for self-defense are safer than those who are not." ...

"Florida legislators have greenlighted the execution of innocent people at the hands of killers looking for an excuse to execute those they have preconceived dislikes for."

"No reasonably intelligent person can possibly believe that the flimsy criteria for carrying a concealed handgun in Florida can weed out hateful and crazy people who have no self control and should not be on the streets of Florida with loaded guns." ...

"As it currently stands, the Second Amendment guarantees U.S. citizens the right to own firearms. But each state is permitted to place its own restrictions on the types of firearms -- and the manner in which they're possessed -- that people are allowed to own."

"A bill making its way through Congress would grant 'reciprocity' for gun owners in states where they don't actually live. In other words, if you can carry a concealed handgun under Ohio law, an Ohio resident can carry a concealed weapon in New York ..."

"The bill is designed to keep gun owners from getting arrested in other states where gun laws might be different than they are in the state in which they live. But New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman ain't havin' it." ...
