... "'It was then that federal agents made entry into Brian’s home, seizing his personal electronics and personally-owned weapons without warning or permission,' the letter to Grassley reports. 'The electronic devices were returned to our family, wiped clean of any data and Brian’s personal handguns have still not been returned to this day. Brian’s personal cell phone, although, 'Undiscovered' by investigators, remained active for over a year. We still have not been provided the warrant, legal writ, or any other associated documentation as to why Brian’s house was searched and his personal belongings taken and altered against our wishes.'" ...

... "'It is not believed that members of the various shooting clubs and organizations would concern themselves over a curtailment of highly-powered firearms,' Hoover opined, probably not altogether incorrectly considering the indifference of many who to this day still place sporting interests over rights. 'Additional penetration is of no value to target shooting, and it is logical to assume that organizations promoting this sport would be in hearty accord with legislation curtailing high velocity bullets in an attempt to insure their members the continued use of target pistols.'" ...

... "The jumble of contradictions is hardly new. Congressional Research Service published a memorandum of ATF firearms testing procedures that, among other things, admitted 'ATF … has over 300 cubic feet of classification letters stored in file cabinets.' None of these have been scanned into a searchable database so that consistency of interpretations can be assured and conflicts identified and resolved, and as that report was published 10 years ago, the thought of what it must look like today evokes nothing so much as the government warehouse at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark." ...

Besides, maybe he just doesn’t own a mirror. But the more of his piece I read, the more I realized; the C-O did not lie. This guy is a moron.

"Prisons are arguably are one of the most controlled environments where humans live. Everything about a prison is [supposed] to be controlled. Security is prevalent, on site and ready to respond to any incident on short notice. Its inhabitants have few rights – privacy and search and seizure laws aren’t among them. Inmates and their living quarters are subject to random searches without notice, warrant or probable cause. Monitoring cameras are virtually everywhere, and big brother is [supposed to be] always watching inmates’ every move. It is, more than any other place, the ultimate 'weapons-free' zone. Despite this, inmates still manage to secure weapons of various sorts. While these weapons rarely include firearms . . ." ...

"Silencer design is still something of a black art and extremely complex. Not only do you need to design something that will efficiently slow and cool the expanding gasses to quiet the report of a firearm, but you need to do it in such a way that it can be mass produced. These days, that means a cylindrical housing with small stackable baffles, usually 100% circumferentially welded. But what if you could create any design you want without having to worry about tooling and the complexities of construction? What if the finished product could virtually jump from the drawing board into your hands, fully formed and ready to go? Someone has done just that, and they used a 3D printer . . ." ...

"Women and men are different in many ways. They don’t necessarily do the same things the same way. So why would a woman carry a gun the same way as a man? Sure, there’s no reason they can’t, but due to fashion and lifestyle sometimes carrying a 1911 is not feasible. So a woman needs to choose a carry gun that will fit her daily life. Be it a pocket gun for a purse for a full-size Glock, a woman needs the chance to figure out for herself what she needs in a carry gun . . ." ...

... "I believe that, as a gun owner, I have a responsibility to my family and my community to store my gun safely, locked and unloaded. I also have a responsibility to advocate for responsible gun laws that help keep guns out of dangerous people's hands. That includes being willing to submit to a background check every time I purchase a firearm and expecting buyers to submit to a current background check if I sell them a gun. Furthermore, I believe that if I misuse my gun, for example if I violently threaten a family member or allow a child to gain access to a loaded and unlocked firearm, I should be held accountable for my actions." ...

"Looking for gun control? Look in the large, Democrat-controlled urban areas of America. Gun rights have gone bye-bye in Boston, Chicago, Hartford, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Trenton. Politicians in these gun control havens have an answer for people who point to other states’ gun rights. What works in the wilds of Wyoming won’t work on the mean streets of Manhattan. Densely-populated cities have special needs. Hang on. What about Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, Phoenix, Nashville and Kansas City? Pay no attention to the firearms freedom behind that curtain! We’re on a mission here! Like this . . ." ...
