"There is another interest group not acknowledged by Justice that will nonetheless play a role in the administration of any 'common ground' agreements that are reached, and two self-identified members of that group happen to be the same—what did James V. Grimaldi of The Washington Post call us?— 'Anti-ATF bloggers sympathetic to the militia movement [who] picked up the allegations late last year, dubbing the scandal 'Project Gunwalker' and alleging ATF agents let guns 'walk' to boost the numbers of U.S. weapons recovered in Mexico.'" ...
 

Forcible citizen disarmament by fiat: When separation of powers gets in the way

"It's good to be king, particularly if you are a president who wants to impose more infringements on that which shall not be infringed, and Congress is disinclined to play along. As President of the United States, that would be (or should be) a problem, because the separation of powers built into the structure of our government splits power among the three branches of government ... but for a king who rules by decree, it's as easy as, 'Stroke of the pen. Law of the Land. Kinda cool.'" ...

"I like small guns. I find that that whole James Bond deep concealment thing strangely attractive.

The chances of fending off a bevy of bad guys with a pocket pistol are about the same as the odds of crossing the Atlantic in a Sunfish.

"In the raging gun control debate in this country, the subject of defensive gun use is one that the gun control lobby would like to keep away from the ears of the general public. After all, if there were more lawful defensive gun uses by common, law-abiding citizens than there were violent crimes committed with firearms by criminals, then the whole premise of their argument would simply fall apart. The whole idea of the anti-gun argument is that more guns leads to more violent crime."
