The second pointed out the lack of required affidavits for each page of signatures submitted, and that it specified the wrong county. The third showed an example of an affidavit signed and dated before all the signatures appearing on it had been obtained." ...

"The death of gun grabber Dr. Vivek Murphy’s nomination for Surgeon General and the lack of 'gun epidemic' posts on the interwebz indicates that the antis have been stymied on the guns-control-as-health-care-issue front. At least for now. We may have to revisit that assessment after federal research money for 'gun violence' (unleashed by President Obama’s Executive Order) produces a fresh crop of semi-scientific anti-gun studies.

After recapping the usual anti-gun tripe, Mr. Goodman argued that law-abiding black Americans should open carry firearms to prove to the police that they’re not criminals. Great landing, wrong airport. Law-abiding black Americans should open carry because they have a natural, civil and Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Just like all Americans, regardless of their race, color, creed or sexual orientation. Here’s another gun control article by a [gay] black American that doesn’t quite make it to the landing strip.

“Two years ago, in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre in which a mentally unstable man killed 20 students and six adults with a military-style rifle, such weapons seemed to be in deep trouble.”

“… President Barack Obama and Congress called for reform and restrictions on the guns and their high-capacity magazines. Fearing an outright ban, gun buyers stampeded stores, cleaning out shelves and driving prices up to nearly $2,000 a rifle, particularly for models based on the popular AR-15 platform.” …

“But all that seems like a distant memory now. In a country where gun ownership is assured by the Constitution, the supply of ARs is abundant. Some even call it a glut.”
