"While the exact arrangements for the Colorado armed civil disobedience are still up in the air, the need for magazines to accomplish it is not. I would like to thank those readers who pointed this out to me by sending me, unsolicited, thirty round AR and AK mags to my PO Box. I am still waiting on a reply from some magazine manufacturers, and no doubt some of them don't want to get involved with a notorious 'insurrectionist' as myself. In the meantime, I'm going to take the readers' advice and put out this call for the raw mat

"The defeat of a host of ambitious measures in the US Senate provided an infuriating rebuke for the Obama administration, assorted anti-gunners, and their mainstream media cheerleaders."

"The president was visibly livid after he was given the vote he’d demanded and came up short, and was quick to strike back through executive actions designed to, among other goals, remove medical record privacy barriers, 'clarify' the powers of Eric Holder over munitions imports and exports, and direct the Centers for Disease Control to resume the anti-gun junk science agenda that provoked Congress to defund such 'research' back in 1997, after they’d made no bones about wanting guns 'dirty, deadly—and banned.'" ...

She was born into a Republican, Christian, but also very anti-gun, family 35 years ago and spent much of her early adulthood in small, conservative towns. She identifies herself as Lesbian, African-American and vegetarian, which made life in small towns a bit stressful. She now lives in a large city where tolerance and acceptance are the norm . . ."

"... Many of the people she meets at work, as well as the folks in her personal life, have a very negative view of guns and gun owners. 'There is definitely some prejudice. We have taught people to be terrified of the very idea of a gun, so they tend to have a very illogical, emotional response to guns.' That’s why she keeps her gun ownership quiet." ...

In this case, the headline lingers over a piece written by Newsweek and CNN contributor David Frum at thedailybeast.com. So all we get is a terse anti-gun anecdote. '... The real world of American gun use looks more like this: You buy the gun to protect your home and family. But one day, your wife gets sassy. Maybe you’ve had a drink or two. And then … bang.' After that Frum blockquotes a story about Randall Floyd Lovett, a man who shot himself in the knee during a domestic dispute. What does that tell you? I tell you what it tells me . . ." ...

"Gun control advocates heart firearms-related suicide stats. They constantly lump them in with firearms-related homicide data to double the number of 'gun deaths' in the U.S. The antis also portray guns as suicide enablers; depressed people wouldn’t be able to kill themselves so easily if they didn’t have 'easy access' to firearms. A new study from the Centers for Disease Prevention (Suicide Among Adults Aged 35–64 Years — United States, 1999–2010) reveals some new, not-entirely-helpful-to-the-gun-grabbers’ information about firearms-related suicides.

... "Advocates of gun bans react to a shooting by saying that if the assailant had not had access to firearms, that shooting could not have occurred. Of course, that is true: The shooting required a gun. But this proves much less than the controllers think. It doesn’t mean that had the killer not been able to get a gun legally, he couldn’t have gotten one at all. ... Will a thug who is turned away from a gun shop give up so easily? Or is he apt to go into the black market to buy a firearm? Worse, might he not break into a gun shop or someone’s home to steal a gun?"

"How stupid does the Senate background-check vote look now, I ask the pundits and others who thought it was dumb politics for Obama and the Democrats to push for a vote that they obviously knew they were going to lose. I’d say not very stupid at all. The nosedive taken in the polls by a number of senators who voted against the bill, most of them in red states, makes public sentiment here crystal clear. And now, for the first time since arguably right after the Reagan assassination attempt ... legislators in Washington are feeling political heat on guns that isn’t coming from the NRA. This bill will come back to the Senate, maybe before the August recess, and it already seems possible and maybe even likely to have 60 votes next time." ...
