Langford, in turn, was one of Michael Bloomberg’s 'Illegal Mayors' who was sentenced by a federal judge to 15 years for 'bribery, fraud, conspiracy, money laundering and filing false tax returns.'" ...

... "What I observe anecdotally is that in urban environments, especially among my black fellow citizens, is a lack of a lawful gun culture. ..."

"The culture of lawful gun owners has a robust set of mores about how to handle a firearm (including air guns and such), when it is appropriate to use and display a gun, and the consequences of breaking those mores. For instance, while I am not required by law to tell the cops I am carrying during a traffic stop, I always do, keeping my hands firmly on the steering wheel. I’d rather the cop hear it from me in peaceful, dulcet tones that I have a heater than to discover it during a frisk and then have him wonder why I did not tell him." ...

"Whenever an incident like the entirely justified shooting of Michael Brown by former Ferguson, MO police officer Darren Wilson is forced into the public consciousness, predictable–and dangerous—assertions spring up. Such assertions are fueled and informed by ignorance, righteous imaginings of how things ought to be, novels, TV and movies. While they’re entertaining and dramatic, the actions suggested are virtually always practical, tactical disasters . . ." ...

"Here at TTAG, we love shooting steel. Some TTAG writers have the luxury of owning rural property where they can simply leave their targets. Others, myself included, live in suburbia, and can only shoot at gun clubs or out on public lands (BLM, National Forest lands, etc.). So we need steel targets that are portable. Fortunately, Grizzly Targets of Tampa Florida has the answer: a set of stands and targets they call the 'Build Your Own Range' (BYOR) System. Grizzly sent me some T&E samples, and I have since purchased additional pieces . . ." ...

"FNH USA is way late to the AR party. The FN-15 rifle was introduced earlier this year, well past the peak of the AR fever of 2013. You’d think the company responsible for manufacturing the military version of the M16A4 (and a large percentage of U.S. military rifles) would quickly tool-up to crank out civilian versions of the rifle. But that’s not the way FN rolls . . ."

"Due to legal restrictions and contractual requirements, the rifle you see here as the FN 15 is a completely different beast than the military version, made on different machines that just happen to be in the same vicinity of the company’s M16 manufacturing." ...

"Stag is an AR-15 maker that is often overlooked by the mil-spec crowd for reasons I really don’t get. The company has been at this for more than 10 years, and it’s the real deal: an OEM manufacturer that does the metal cutting and finishing on all the major AR parts that go into its own rifles as well as those from other makers."

"Stag is also not bashful about offering value-for-money models of its own, AR-15s that have the features you want at a price you can afford. The latest of those is the 3T-M." ...

Two years ago, the NRA called for arming teachers – that's their solution – more guns for everyone, everywhere, anytime,' said John Feinblatt, President of Everytown for Gun Safety. 'The gun lobby wants schools and college students to join the country's arms race and buy more guns. Instead, we can and should do more to prevent gun violence – that's why we're fighting for common-sense public safety measures that respect the Second Amendment and keep guns out of the wrong hands.'" ...

"Perhaps a new debate about gun control is needed in America. Not about real firearms - but about 'toys' that sometimes cause needless deaths of children."

"Regularly enough that the scenario is familiar to many people, law enforcement officers kill a child because of a mistake. Dispatchers are called by people concerned a boy is brandishing a gun. Officers arrive, order the youth to put the weapon down and, instead, he moves as if to fire at them."

"Deputies or officers, with just split-seconds to react, shoot the lad. To their horror, they find he was armed only with a realistic-looking toy or pellet pistol." ...

"Last week, Associated Press reporter Matt Stroud incorrectly implied that the recent increase in firearm-related background checks run through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) frequently results in violent criminals beating the system and acquiring guns."

"Noting that in situations in which NICS cannot complete a check on a prospective gun buyer within three business days, a firearm dealer is allowed to transfer a firearm to the person ..." ...

"My wife and children gave me a Winchester, .22 caliber, rimfire rifle for my 44th birthday and I still have, shoot it, hunt with, and cherish that gift. It is so important to me because it came from my wife and children who knew I wanted one and did not have one. It really touched me because my loving wife has never fired a gun and it was a totally selfless gift. On top of that it is a good rifle." ...

"It would be easy for Eastwood to produce a feature that is a straight-up homage to ’80s-era patriotism – and it plays like that on the surface – but American Sniper is overall a tense and sad account of the brief life of the most accomplished marksman in American military, Chris Kyle. The film follows Eastwood’s own Flags of Our Fathers and Kathryn Bigelow’s Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker in examining the reasons men enlist and go to war, then followed by the lingering effects when returning home. Bradley Cooper, picking up a Texas twang to go with a beefier physique, plays Chris Kyle ...

"Thompson, noting that 44 states do not have restrictions similar to those in New York and Connecticut, said the bans must fail under the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in [DC v. Heller] and that the question in analyzing the constitutionality of the laws is not whether criminals will still be able to locate illegal weapons and ammunition."
