"The gun-grabbers thought they had their moment."

"Shamefully making a political advantage out of the deaths of 20 children at the hands of a lunatic in Connecticut last December, liberal politicians went all out in 2013 to attack the Second Amendment at the dawn of the Obama administration’s second term."

"They failed."

"From the Capitol Dome to statehouses and local voting booths, gun rights defenders fired back. Here are the top five biggest stories of 2013 for gun rights." ...

... "Here’s something you can do for the youthful new gun owner: Stop referring to new firearms as 'new toys.' Guns are many things, but they are not 'toys.' You will find this frequently on the gun forums: 'Got a new toy,' as the title of a discussion about someone’s new firearm. Don’t treat them like toys, don’t handle them like toys, and never, ever look down the muzzle of a gift gun unless and until the action is open and clear, and there can be no doubt that the firearm is unloaded and safe." ...

"This year was rough. Really, for everyone it was just rough. Sometimes it feels like most of this 2013 was spent “debating” gun rights and gun control and the rest of the year just trying to find ammo."

"Many manufacturers held back on new product launches, it’s true, without exception in order to catch up to back-orders on existing products. But during these past couple of months pressures have started to drop, guns, ammo, parts and accessories are getting a lot easier to find and with SHOT Show 2014 around the corner, the gun world seems like its getting back on track."

"Even then, 2013 also saw a lot of good things in the gun world, with new products and technologies rising to the top every day, every week all year long." ...

"I’m a recent convert to the “outside the waistband” style of holster for daily carry. It’s just more comfortable to me, and gives me a quicker draw when I need it. MEK Holsters is a new holster manufacturer in Texas that makes some pretty interesting looking holsters, and they sent me one for my Glock 19 to test and see if I like it. And at first glance, everything is all unicorns and rainbows . . ." ...

"Bird hunters and target shooters alike will have the opportunity to get their hands on the next generation of Benelli shotguns in 2014, thanks to the impending introduction and release of the company’s new Ethos model."

"The Ethos is comprised of some of Benelli’s most successful innovations, both old and new. ... A newly patented Easy Locking System in the bolt body is designed to ensure that the rotating bold head locks up, and the Ethos’ system is designed to cycle even the lightest of shotgun loads—right on down to 7/8 ozs. And all that’s just scratching the surface of this potential game-changer." ...

"Economics is supposed to make such clean, perfect sense. Heaven knows I spent enough time believing that back in college, studying how purely hypothetical ‘demand’ lines cross with purely speculative ‘supply’ lines to determine a perfect market price for any commodity. After keeping my eye on ammo prices for the last several years, however, I’m pretty much ready to dismiss everything that Professor Paranthap Basu taught me in Microecon 101 as total bullshit. (And don’t even get me started about airline prices) . . ." ...

"On December 13th 2013, PETA 'Special Projects' Division Manager Alicia Woempner lived up to the group’s reputation for bizarre extremism when she sent a letter scolding 18-year-old hunter and bear mauling victim Camille Bomboy." ...

"Throughout the letter, Woempner equates human beings with animals, as is characteristic of PETA. Woempner writes, 'This seems to be a good opportunity to put yourself in the place of the individuals you and the rest of your hunting party were trying to kill.' (Emphasis added.) Woempner continues the lecture: 'Now that you’ve experienced the horror of an attack –although this one was in self-defense – we hope you will choose to enjoy nature in only nonviolent ways.'" ...

"As a kid growing up in the pre-Perestroika ‘80s, I used to think, 'The only good Commie is a dead Commie.' Today, that sounds harsher than it did then, but something about one of my state’s U.S. Congressmen and 268 others getting blown to bits by a Soviet SU-15 fighter jet – along with hundreds if not thousands of the USSR’s ICBMs aimed squarely at the US of A – rendered such ham-fisted maxims far more socially acceptable ... But hey, we grow up, we become educated and experienced, and regardless of whether or not our feelings about such things change, we learn to enter into discourse in more subtle and nuanced (some would say 'more civilized') ways than youthful, jingoistic references to 'dead Commies' . . ." ...

"Karl Pierson didn't fit the profile." ...

"But friends say he took a sudden turn away from normal. And on Friday, he showed up at the high school, in Centennial, Colo., with a shotgun, plenty of shells, a machete and a backpack full of firebombs, apparently intending to settle his differences with the debate team coach while doing as much collateral damage as possible."

"His terror spree lasted a little more than a minute before his plans changed and he hastily retreated into the afterlife ..."

"Karl Pierson's effort to become the latest school shooting celebrity failed utterly."

"To achieve celebrity status, a shooter needs five minutes or so, left to his own nefarious devices while his victims cower, plead and die." ...

"A burglar carried out a terrifying revenge attack on a woman by returning to her home and raping her years after he was jailed for robbing her."

"Ashley Mills, 28, broke into his victim's home with an iron bar, grabbed a carving knife from the kitchen cupboard and said: 'I've come to rape you.'"

"The woman, 59, thought Mills, who had previously been jailed for burgling her rural house, was going to kill her as he raped her repeatedly in the early hours."

"She has spoken of her torment following the brutal and 'prolonged' attack." ...

Another case is Alisha Waters – a 31-year-old woman tracked down and shot by her estranged husband and paralyzed. She is currently recovering. The recent headlines are terrifying. That’s why so many more women are arming themselves.' The script makes the pistol-packing women seem like scared little rabbits.

e Court has been asked to review a Texas case and determine whether when a homeowner exercises his Second Amendment rights he gives up his Fourth Amendment rights."

"In short, does the Second trump the Fourth?"

"Quinn’s home was the subject of a no-knock, SWAT-team style forceful entry and raid based 'solely on the suspicion that there were legally owned firearms in the household,' ..." ...

"... Rutherford attorneys argue that making lawful gun ownership and possession grounds for police to evade the protections afforded by the Fourth Amendment improperly penalizes and limits the Second Amendment right to bear arms." ...

Either way, when you ship something through the USPS, you expect it to be delivered intact and on time. When you pay for insurance and your shipment disappears in transit, you expect the post office to pay the claim. When you’re an FFL and your collectible WWII-era M1 Carbine vanishes in transit and the USPS denies your insurance claim, it’s time to get on the phone and tell The Truth About Guns.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
...but if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people, while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights... — Alexander Hamilton speaking of standing armies in Federalist No. 29.
