"If one were to go to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence website one would find that they still "Applaud" the Nordyke v King decision. A decision which has dealt the biggest blow to California gun control laws in the state's history. Not only California, but every state within the jurisdiction of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals; including the anti-gun state of Hawaii." ...
 

About those 30,000 gun deaths

"This is in response to W. Smith's May 8 letter, which commented on my May 4th letter."

"This number of deaths by guns of about 30,000 per year touted by gun-controllers, like Smith, seems to be about right. However, a deeper look reveals the following:"

"1). Suicides account for about 48 percent of deaths by guns. They need to be taken off the figures, as suicide will take place with or without a gun. (Sweden has higher suicide rate than U.S., but guns hardly used there for that…) So now we are down to 16,300 deaths per year to deal with." ...
 

MAG 80 Part II Advanced Handgun

"Roy Rogers had his Trigger. So do you. The cowboy’s horse was probably a lot more controllable (and less temperamental) than the finger you use to fire your gun. As my instructors at the MAG 80 training program taught me, trigger control accounts for 90 percent of shooters’ accuracy problems. And so Massad Ayoob’s stand-in Marty Hayes started our week with some focus drills emphasizing the importance of trigger reset and follow through. First task: see who could take the most time to press, and then release, their trigger. You’d be amazed at how much concentration learning how not to concentrate on your finger requires. And then . . ." ...
 

Gun Review: Ruger SR1911

"My wife can’t stand bluegrass. Sam associates banjos and fiddles with inbreeding and sodomy. She’s from Africa; what does she know? Bluegrass is blues for white people. And God knows we white folks need our blues music, what with tornados making a beeline for our trailer parks and the after-effects of too many highballs. The 1911 is our gun. Sorry, but there it is. Gangbangers have their Hi-Points. Mexican drug lords have their FiveseveNs. The 1911 is caucasian badass: Elvis meets John Wayne with a hillbilly holler. While the design’s 100th anniversary has inspired an entire arsenal of new 1911s, Ruger’s first foray into the field is the only one that can justifiably claim to be all-American. How whitebread—I mean great is that?" ...

... "I was out for a routine morning run on trash day last week, and snagged this empty plastic tool box off a pile of rubbish set to be collected. At one time it carried a 'saws-all' type electric tool. It's very rugged yet light, with good hinges and clasps. This particular plastic case is 24 inches long, and it can contain a 31" overall carbine, broken into upper and lower and nested. Plus a few magazines." ...
 

SIG SAUER’s New 1911s

"SIG SAUER makes 1911s. Ruger makes 1911s. Well, now they do. As TTAG's review pointed out, the Ruger SR1911's Unique Selling Point is its all-American parts and stateside manufacture. Methinks someone at SIG is not happy ceding domesticity to the Arizona mob. The press release for SIG’s 1911 TACPAC and new options on the 1911-22 pistols claims that the guns 'combine the American ingenuity of the venerable 1911 platform with SIG SAUER® refinements that enhance the pistol’s accuracy while still maintaining superior reliability.' Ingenious? A hundred years ago, sure. Superior reliability? Compared to what? Besides . . ." ...

"When Ohio's concealed-carry law was enacted in 2004, opponents warned it would lead to Wild West shootouts on the streets. They were wrong. The legislation licensing qualified Ohioans to carry concealed firearms, forged through years of tough debate, struck a sometimes awkward yet reasonable balance between liberty and safety."

"But now, Ohio lawmakers, with signals of support from Gov. John Kasich, are poised to upset that balance with a measure to allow concealed weapons in any establishment, whether a sports stadium, five-star restaurant or corner saloon, that serves alcohol - spiking an already volatile substance with added potential danger." ...

"My late brother in law used to talk about his career as a well-site geologist back in the 60s. His job involved life in some of Canada’s less traveled wilderness regions where his fear of a bear attack was alleviated by his 44 Magnum sidekick. He never had to prove whether the gun was mightier than the bear. These days he would not be legally allowed to carry a handgun in the Canadian wilderness . . ." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I now think the only way to control handgun use is to prohibit the guns. And the only way to do that is to change the Constitution. — M. Gartner, then President of NBC News, USA Today, January 16, 1992, pg. A9
