"I just got off the phone with Tommy Millner, President and CEO of Remington Arms Company."

"First, he assures me the email reproduced on AR15.com is authentic."

"He has been in contact with HS-Precision management after getting blindsided by the Lon Horiuchi development, and has also personally read and responded to every email sent to him by concerned customers."

"He assures me Remington takes this situation, and lack of response by HS-Precision, very seriously, and completely disapproves of what they have done. He tells me Remington is committed to doing the right thing by their thousands of customers, up to and including changing suppliers where possible* if there is no other way to go forward." ...

By removing any chance over the next two years of defending ourselves politically from further raids upon our traditional liberty and property, you force us to consider other means.

"Linoge's opinion of me is unimportant. The prags call us Three Percenters names because of what we represent -- we are Americans who have finally, after a "long train of abuses and usurpations," laid down a marker. Beyond this marker, we will not go. Prags, on the other hand, keep their markers firmly in their coin purses, and their purses firmly in their pockets, lest their ability to back up -- or to turn and run -- be compromised." ...

"Today's cover story in the Eugene Weekly purports to be a debunking of the gun rights lobby’s concerns about the incoming Obama Administration. The author, Rick Levin takes as his starting point a random, poorly written blog comment on Politico.com in which the the poster claims to be scared of Barack Obama and insists that the NRA is deterring an 'open attack' on America's heartland. Having managed to dig up this unquestionably authoritative representation of gun rights advocates nationwide, Levin feels comfortable announcing that 'likely it is just this breed of hysteria that has caused local and national gun sales to spike.'"

Medicare to cover Palm Pistol 'prescription handgun'?

"Back in September we wrote about the Palm Pistol, a single-shot gun intended for those with limited manual dexterity. Now comes word that, after some FDA pondering, the Palm Pistol has been designated a Class I Medical Device. That means that doctors will eventually be able to prescribe the weapon to qualified patients, who will then be able to claim the cost back through private or Medicare health insurance."

"I'm wondering if it's just me that sounds bizarre to, or if everyone is having the same 'bwuh?!' moment. I understand that the US second amendment gives[sic] everybody the right to bear arms, but is it their right to claim back the cost of said-arms under health insurance?" ...

"Although the gun group unleashed everything in its arsenal to defeat Barack Obama and dozens of down ticket gun-control candidates, it lost by a margin as historic as the war chest it opened in an attempt to convince voters that Democrats were mortal enemies of the Second Amendment. Despite expending nearly $7 million in a national fear campaign, NRA-endorsed candidates lost 80 percent of their races against gun-control candidates. ..." ...

Plaxico Burress: Second Amendment Martyr

"Well, here's a new take on the Plaxico situation. 'Policy analyst' David Kopel has an editorial in today's Wall Street Journal, arguing that Plaxico Burress has been wronged. Not because he faces three-and-a-half years in Attica for what is essentially a victimless crime. (If you're not counting his leg as a victim.) No, it's because he thinks New York City's handgun law is unconstitutional."

"You see, Burress used to have a gun permit—in Florida—but he lives in New Jersey, so even if he wanted to register his gun in New York City, he can't. The city doesn't allow handgun permits to non-residents and refuses to honor concealed carry permits issued by other states." ...

"New York Giants star receiver Plaxico Burress is facing a mandatory 3½ years in prison and the end of his football career. His crime? Not having a license, which New York City never would have issued him, for the exercise of his constitutional right to bear arms."

"To be sure, Mr. Burress got caught because of what appears to have been stupid and irresponsible behavior connected with the handgun. But he does not face prison for shooting himself. His impending mandatory sentence highlights the unfairness and unconstitutionality of New York City's draconian gun laws."

"Mr. Burress had previously had a handgun carry permit issued by Florida, for which he was required to pass a fingerprint-based background check ..." ...

"But Plaxico Burress' obvious stupidity doesn't justify eliminating a whole class of citizens from rights afforded under the Second Amendment any more than rogue reporter Jayson Blair's transgressions should be the rationale for curtailing protections under the First."

"The absolutely appropriate fallout includes Burress being suspended by the New York Giants and the charges he faces for illegal gun possession, which could mean serious prison time." ...

"I live in India and I am a proud firearm owner -- but I am the exception not the norm, an odd situation in a country with a proud martial heritage and a long history of firearm innovation. This is not because the people of India are averse to gun ownership, but instead due to Draconian anti-gun legislation going back to colonial times. To trace the roots of India's anti-gun legislation we need to step back to the latter half of the 19th century. The British had recently fought off a major Indian rebellion (the mutiny of 1857) and were busy putting in place measures to ensure that the events of 1857 were never repeated. ... the Indian masses were systematically being disarmed and the means of local firearm production destroyed ..." ...

"For those not familiar with the story, terrorists fighting for an independent Kashmir stormed several high profile hotels and other locations in Mumbai, resulting in at least 200 deaths as of this writing. Like the bombings that took place around the world prior to 9/11, Americans see the carnage in Mumbai as largely another issue they can ignore. As they see it, attacks similar to what happen in places like India don't happen here." ...

... "... if there's a lesson to be gleaned from the [Mumbai] India massacre, it's that individuals ultimately are responsible for their personal safety. India has strict gun control laws that make it virtually impossible for private citizens to arm themselves, so they rely on armed professionals to protect them. However, there were reports from Mumbai that policemen at the train station failed to use their weapons to stop the terrorists as they gunned down innocents. How many innocent lives could have been saved had the terrorists immediately faced return fire from an armed populace?"

A federal probation officer from Redding has been arrested for allegedly molesting teenage girls.

Authorities say 45-year-old Joseph Gama surrendered to Redding police at his home on Wednesday.

Redding police launched their investigation last month after one of the alleged victims went to police. Sgt. Dean Stainberg says two other teenage girls have also accused Gama of similar charges.

Gama's family was honored in 2006 as the Shasta County Adoptive Family of the Year. Stainberg would not say if the girls lived at Gama's home.

"The preliminary figures from deer check stations throughout the state show a significant increase from last year's opening day total of 19,391. Monday's weather was breezy with intermittent rain or snow across the state, a stark contrast to opening day 2007 when hunters were hampered by heavy rain." ...

As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I've realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it's much, much bigger than that. I've come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated. — Charlton Heston
