"When you and other thinking Americans Read it…Firearms Haters Can Kiss Their Gun Ban Plans Goodbye!!"

"Shooting Blanks should be mandatory reading for any firearms enthusiast. In the course of thirteen hard-hitting chapters, authors Gottlieb and Workman debunk and demolish the myths, misinterpretations, and outright falsehoods used again and again by Gun Control Extremists in their dishonest war on Second Amendment rights and the American people." ...

"Talk radio is providing an important means for 'Project Gunwalker' information not being covered (or being misrepresented) by 'Authorized Journalists' to reach the public outside of the readerships of Gun Rights Examiner and Sipsey Street Irregulars. Recent guest appearances by this correspondent include two nationally-syndicated programs over the weekend, and a major market guest spot this morning." ...

"HB 822 is a bill in congress to establish a national law requiring reciprocity between states for those who carry concealed weapons. ..."

"Let me explain this in familiar terms. You can drive in another state if the state allows its own citizens to drive. You have to be 16 years old to drive if the local driving age is 16. Maybe the locals have to be 18 to drive alone at night. So you are allowed to drive at night if you’re 18 or older. You have to obey the same speed limits as the rest of the citizens. If everyone has to walk, then you have to walk. Simple. We follow rules like this every day. So why is there so much discussion about 'states rights' when it comes to carry licenses?" ...

"American gun owners are reacting to last week's Gallup Poll results on private firearms ownership in a classic 'glass half-full; half-empty' vein."

"The Second Amendment Foundation gleefully reported that a 'record low' number of Americans support a legal ban on handgun possession by private citizens. Turns out that 'only' 26 percent of Americans favored a ban on pistols in the annual Gallup Crime poll, which was conducted Oct. 6-9."

"Meanwhile, a considerable amount of less-rabid but socially aware gun owners were concerned to learn that more than a quarter of the populace (what's that, 60-plus million Americans?) wanted handguns abolished." ...

"A reader writes:"
"I'm a new reader and was wondering if you've ever posted about home defense shotguns and what to look for when purchasing one. If not, would you be able to point me toward a few good resources, or perhaps do a post on this topic at some point in the future? I'm sure I’m not the only one with questions about this."
"Personally I can’t imagine a better suited firearm for home defense than a handgun. It’s compact, accurate, and easy to maneuver around the house. But for some the shotgun is their firearm of choice, requiring less fine motor skill and easier to aim in a high stress situation. So today’s question: If I were to get a self defense shotgun, what would it be?" ...

"Give MSNBC some credit for covering the story of Sheriff Chuck Wright and his call for law-abiding citizens to arm themselves as a measure of self-defense. However, deduct credit for a complete lack of research and common sense in preparing their interview of Wright. Substitute host Craig Melvin treats his guest respectfully but obviously doesn’t have a clue about the laws regarding self-defense, nor the actual application of 'presumption of innocence':" ...

"The number of pols calling for Attorney General Eric Holder’s head over the Fast and Furious gun running scandal continues to multiply. As do the number of weapons 'recovered' from the program’s 'customers.' foxnews.com confirms that two out of the 108 weapons confiscated during a recent drug bust have been traced to the ATF’s 'Guns for Goons' program. ..." ...

The man [Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer] repping the Bureau responsible increasing the flow of U.S. gun store guns to Mexican drug cartels—by some 2000 weapons in just 10 months—is bitching about Mexican gun smugglers. The same man who knows damn well that U.S. military weapon sales to Latin America are the cartels’ main source for firearms." ...

"Documents released Tuesday by Senator Charles Grassley relating to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ 'gunwalking' activities dating back to late 2009 – a year before Operation Fast and Furious imploded with the slaying of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry – strongly suggest that the ATF was far more interested in big splash publicity than in keeping guns out of the hands of Mexican criminals." ...

... "Next week, Attorney General Eric Holder will testify before the full Senate Judiciary Committee. And, as in the House, Senators will want to know: 'What did Holder know, and when did he know it?'"

"As more information comes to light, it seems all too clear that Operation Fast and Furious was simply a way for the administration to make a case for more gun control restrictions."

"Rep. Farenhold demonstrated that he 'gets it' when he noted that Fast and Furious was simply a 'political ploy to bring gun trafficking into Mexico into the news to support some sort of anti-firearm agenda.'" ...

"The thing is, we have already seen this process in action, with gun dealers who had cooperated with a[n ATF] 'gunwalking' scheme consequently pressed to provide far more information about all their sales ... We even have direct email proof that publicity about 'Fast and Furious'-trafficked guns were used to strengthen the BATFE's argument for its mulitple long gun sales reporting requirement." ...

... "In the wake of this case, I see more and more of these clashes of culture and civilization on the horizon. These are inevitably in our future as developments get developed, and the cost of owning and operating gun ranges within their range and even hearing become prohibitive."

"But I also happen to believe that gun ranges are necessary and needed. I know a lot of people don’t agree, many of them are liberals like me, but I think they’re wrong."

"Guns are not going away, and ignorance of their proper use and care will mean a more dangerous, not a less dangerous, environment."
