"The anti-gun crowd can come up with some amazing (and creative) arguments why no one should be allowed to own firearms, in spite of what the Constitution says. But what if the same arguments were applied to other 'dangerous' things? For example . . ."

"Cars are nothing more than instruments of death. Statistics prove that households with cars are much more likely to have a car-related fatality than households without cars. Every year thousands of people, including many innocent children, are killed by cars. And the cars don’t even have to have be running – every summer we hear of children who are killed when they play in cars and accidently lock themselves inside. Obviously there’s no such thing as a 'safe' car." ...

"We already know that Top Shot isn't 'real.' The bullets you see hitting the targets are not fired by the competitors. The competitors' strings are edited to remove malfunctions (which may or may not be mechanical). But TTAG's heard from courageous sources—production workers bound by NDAs so punitive their reproductive organs are at risk—that there have been safety issues on the set. As I value both my balls and my business (and I promised confidentiality to my sources) I can’t tell you everything I've heard. However . . ." ...

"One Republican congressman has suggested that Attorney General Eric Holder ought to be arrested and face criminal charges of being an accessory to murder, and that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and even President Obama might be implicated."

"Wayne LaPierre of the [NRA] calls it 'the biggest cover-up since Watergate' and describes Operation Fast and Furious as 'just one part of Barack Obama’s agenda to attack gun owners and our Second Amendment rights.' Conservative bloggers are even arguing that the 'Fast and Furious' case constitutes grounds for impeachment, with claims that it’s 'the Reichstag fire of the Second Amendment.'"

"An excitable little bunch, aren’t they?" ...

Submitter's Note: At least two US LEOs dead, scores of foreign nationals dead, Federal officials violating local, state, national and international laws, as well as violating several treaties, an Attorney General lying under oath and claiming he is so incompetent he didn't read memos and briefing statements, stonewalling and obfuscation of Congressional Oversight investigations by high level administration officials and indications that the cover-up leads at least to the White House if not the Oval Office.
Nah, nothing to get excited about here.

..." ...You two come at this with strong but rather inchoate views: You’re a pacifist who loathes guns. He’s a Second Amendment purist who needs protection from the hordes stalking your city. Instead of digging in, it would be helpful if you each could concede the other has a point. If everyone shared your view there would be no need for guns; but they don’t, so there is. If he acts as if the world outside your door resembles Grand Theft Auto, he needs to be more realistic about the actual threat. ... My guess is that for him this is less about crime than his desire to be the kind of all-protective figure his father was, and that requires a gun. ... Maybe one way to get over this impasse would be for both of you to go to a firing range. ..."

"As the Gunwalker scandal chugs along, the 'meaning' of the Operation Fast and Furious seems set in stone. As I’ve asserted in this series and in my Washington Times editorial, the mainstream media has bought what the ATF and the Obama Administration have been selling: F&F was a 'botched sting.' Which would make U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s murder at the hands of drug thugs wielding ATF-enabled firearms nothing more than bad luck. And U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s role nothing more than that of a busy bureaucrat betrayed by rogue underlings. As House Oversight Committee member Paul Gosar points out even if that’s true—which it isn’t—Holder needs to go . . ." ...

This is reflected, say the sources, in the subpoena issued this week by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee seeking, among other things, 'All communications to or from William Newell, former Special agent in Charge for ATF's Phoenix Field Division, between . . .

"Rep. Dan Lungren has a decision to make."

"Lungren must weigh his background as a former California attorney general and his belief in states' rights against the hard reality that he will anger the National Rifle Association if he votes against the NRA's top priority, a bill that would dramatically weaken California's strict gun laws."

"The conflict likely will play out in Washington today when the House Judiciary Committee takes up H.R. 822. The legislation would require all states, California included, to honor concealed weapons permits issued by any other state, no matter how low that other state's standards might be." ...

Submitter's Note: I wonder if Mr. Morain would support the same impassioned "states' rights" argument to oppose federal enforcement of desegregation and minority voting rights.

As of Jan 1st, 2012 it will be a misdemeanor to carry an exposed and unloaded handgun in public. ... The reasoning for the ban: the police chiefs throughout the state were not comfortable with 'Open Carry.' Quoting the president of the California Police Chiefs Association, David Maggard Jr. (above, right), 'the bill will help assure that felons and gang members cannot openly carry an unloaded gun with impunity.' Really, Mr. Maggard?" ...
