"The greatest accomplishment of supporters of the Second Amendment is the belief that 'guns are cool,' National Rifle Association President David Keene tells Newsmax.TV."

"Keene, speaking to Newsmax at CPAC Colorado, said that Americans oppose gun laws and it’s not just the work of the NRA or of the Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment right to bear arms extends to individual Americans."

"'The greatest accomplishment of the believers of the Second Amendment today over a decade ago or more is that guns are cool,' he said. 'That wasn’t the case before.'" ...

"'Shares of gun makers Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation and Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc. were lower Wednesday [down around four percent] after an analyst at Benchmark noted that FBI background checks continue to grow, just at a slower rate,' streetinsider.com reports. 'According to the firm, adjusted FBI background checks rose 14.7% in September. While strong, September represents the second lowest Adjusted NICS growth rate this year, second to April’s 10.5% growth.' Add this into the mix: industry insiders told TTAG that supply has finally caught-up with demand. In fact, unless there’s another 'Obama surge,' and maybe even if there is, we could be looking at a glut of product in the market, driving down prices. ..."

"I'm an exceptionally messy person. To the casual observer, I would appear close to catastrophe. I see it differently. I know exactly where everything is. Or I did before I got married. Now my things move. But I have started from scratch with the gun safe. Organization there is a bit more important. It can be dark and cramped.

So it only makes sense that Chiappa would introduce a replica of the stockless lever action 12-gauge shotgun deployed by the Cyberdine Systems T-800 Model 101 in Terminator 2. Wait. What? No it doesn’t. Especially as any attempt to 'spin cock' the Chiappa 1887 T-Model Lever-Action Shotgun T2-style 'violates pretty much every gun safety rule in existence.'

Submitter's Note: First, DO NOT LET THEM IN YOUR HOME!

If they want to ask you some questions offer to meet them in a public location or their office but do NOT allow them inside your house/apt./whatever.

Also I would strongly recommend getting a mini tape recorder (or two) and, after checking the laws in your state, record the conversation.

If you have the wherewithal or are friends with a lawyer; bring him/her with.

Finally, DO NOT let them in your home!

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
