... "The questions those processing his pardon application may want to investigate include, has Wahlberg -- and those providing him with weapons in the course of his acting career -- been in violation of the law on multiple occasions over the years? What would happen to a 'prohibited person' of lesser fame, wealth and connections for possessing firearms without receiving a full pardon, and would they have the means to obtain one?" ...

"President Obama’s boldness in acting alone to implement amnesty for 5 million illegal aliens begs the question: What other unilateral policies might be coming down the pike?"

"Could there be a Christmas Eve surprise?"

"Alan Gottlieb of the [SAF] isn’t waiting to find out."

"Gottlieb told WND he is launching a national media campaign this week to head off the possibility of executive action committing the United States to the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Also known as the U.N. 'small arms treaty,' it is scheduled to go into effect Dec. 24 for those nations that have signed and ratified the document. The U.S. signed the treaty Sept. 23, 2013, but has not ratified it. China and Russia have never signed the document." ...

"One attorney, via e-mail, suggested that DOL 'punted' on the subject of answering questions. When Examiner checked with the agency about one specific paragraph addressing retention of handguns belonging to a deceased person, we could not even find out what was being done with the information:" ...

"I’ve heard it repeated dozens of times and so have you: 'It’s better to be tried by twelve than carried by six.' What does this cliché really mean anyway? And, is it true?"

"Personally, I don’t like cliches too much. They’re boring, they usually aren’t accurate and, by definition, they show a lack of creativity; but even more importantly, cliches lack depth. There’s so much information left unspoken in a phrase like 'It’s better to be tried by 12 than carried by six' and when it comes to taking a life, there is no room to leave anything unexamined." ...

"When testing guns for accuracy it is common practice to look at the Extreme Spread of a group of 3 or 5 test shots. I will explain why this is a statistically bad measure on a statistically weak sample. Then I will explain why serious shooters and statisticians look instead at some variation of circular error probable (CEP) when assessing precision . . ." ...

"Somebody should hire me as a brand consultant. I wouldn’t charge much; I don’t have much to say. Keep the brand as narrow as possible. Focus the entire company’s efforts on realizing and promoting the brand premise, from designing the product to pushing sales to providing customer service. If a new product doesn’t fit you must acquit. If you’re Smith & Wesson, you make revolvers. And . . . that’s it. Smith just about got it right with their semi-automatic pistols. The M&P brand is far enough removed from the S&W brand to establish its own identity. But can it stretch to AR’s? Nope. As good as the rifles are – and they are very good – the branding isn’t strong enough to sustain AR sales, or margins. Don’t take my word for it . . ." ...

"The AR-15 platform is an incredibly versatile firearm, able to be adjusted and customized to meet almost any mission and fit just about any shooter. But in order to make all that customization possible — and even just to maintain the gun — you need a veritable crate of specialized tools. There have been some attempts in the past to create “one tool to rule them all,” giving you all the gadgets you need to fix your gun in the field (like the Leatherman MUT), but I always find that there’s something missing when I need it the most. I haven’t run into that problem with the MultiTasker Series 3 . . ." ...

"The report cataloged numerous incidents of wanton violence, with officers beating, pepper-spraying and Tasering people who were unarmed or had already been restrained. Officers escalated encounters with citizens instead of defusing them, making force all but inevitable."

"The record in Cleveland is extreme. But aspects of illegal police conduct can be found in cities all over the country, subjecting millions to intimidation and fear that they could be killed for innocent actions." ...

"Look above at the mention of the president and an image of a firing gun from World Net Daily yesterday. Add to that the suggestive title: TRIGGER PULLED TO STOP EXECUTIVE ORDER ON GUNS ‘There’s only 1 way to hold Obama accountable’."

"What does that suggest to you?"

"We haven’t forgotten Sarah Palin taking opponents into her sights right before Democratic Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot. Giffords was on Palin’s hit list. Gun-owning conservatives have proven to be very suggestible."

"Why the threat? What has Obama done now to warrant being assassinated by some gun-toting conservative lunatic?"

... "Summarized, when gun advocates utilize the Second Amendment respectfully, it protects people. Case and point, a Good Samaritan saved people at a Family Dollar store when he shot an armed robber. Is he receiving recognition for his heroic deed? Technically he is, but in the form of outrage from the robber’s family."

"According to Fox10 through Live Leak, 18-year-old Aldric White attempted to rob a Family Dollar store in Mobile, Alabama, on November 12th. He did not expect a man, simply recognized as the 'Good Samaritan,' to stop him. Though the Good Samaritan did not want to shoot White, he had to because people’s lives were in danger when White himself had a gun." ...

"Less than a minute later, she saw it. A cat. A big cat, stalking her, only a car length away. The cat crouched, ready to spring. Alyssa shouldered her rifle and fired. Point blank. It was too close to use the scope. She worked the bolt, ready to fire again. But one shot from the 30-06 was enough. The 165 grain Accubond Nosler projectile had skinned the cheek, hitting the lion facing her at the junction of neck and shoulder, traveling the length of its body, killing it instantly. ..." ...

But according to a new survey, it looks like they might need to drop one of the defining positions of their party: gun control . . ." ...

"That resident, Timothy Donley, has also taken his concern to the county attorney ... The county attorney is examining the county's noise ordinance to see if anything can be changed to address the issue."

"The person shooting the firearm 'is in his legal right to do what he is doing and apparently he is making a lot of noise,' said York County Attorney James Barnett. 'I will look into the noise ordinance. We don't want to infringe too much on Second Amendment rights but I will see if it can be tweaked in a way to resolve this.'" ...

"'In light of Heller, McDonald and their progeny,' Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. wrote in his Palmer v. District of Columbia ruling this summer, 'there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional.'"

"Massachusetts’ Supreme Judicial Court heard arguments on that question this week. Now, the court will weigh whether a state law prohibiting private citizens from possessing stun guns infringes on the U.S. Constitution. The court was also asked to decide whether the Second Amendment right to defend yourself in your own home applies in the case of someone who is homeless." ...
