"With Democrats lauding the service record of B. Todd Jones and Republicans grilling him on scandals like Fast and Furious and allegations of whistleblower retaliations, yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building demonstrated a marked difference in the receptiveness of the two parties toward President Obama’s nominee for Director of the [ATF]. Completely overshadowed in the proceedings was the nomination of Stuart F. Delery for Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division." ...
 

Debunking “A Dummy’s Guide to Winning Gun Control Debates”

"Julian Sarafian wrote an article for The Daily Californian that just screamed out for the Bruce Krafft treatment. But since Bruce is indisposed at the moment, I’ll do the honors. Usually articles that claim to impart some scrap of knowledge on the uninformed reader are labeled as 'X For Dummies.' It implies that the reader is the dummy, and the author the informed individual. In this case, the title of the piece ('A Dummy’s Guide to Winning Gun Control Debates') implies that the owner of the guide is a dummy, which would be the author. So the author is calling himself an idiot, and based on the illogical and fact-less content of the article, it’s hard to disagree . . ." ...

"Thingiverse is a site where you can download files for making all sorts of gadgets, doohickeys, and thingamabobs with your 3-D printer. You can even get the files to print toy pistols or stackable ammunition boxes. You can’t, however, download the plans for the Liberator or other 'real' guns, but you can make your feelings on the whole idea of printable guns known there (as long as you’re agin’ it). The page with the sign above is titled 'guns are bad.' The designer (known only as 'Gecko') says in the description 'After being asked 6 times in one day if I was going to print out a gun I thought I needed a simple concise sign. Maybe others will need it too.' . . ." ...

"Just got back from picking up my new Sig P226 Combat in 9mm. A real beauty and cannot wait to shoot it and do a review here. While I was waiting for my NICS check which took a long 5 minutes (eat your hearts out NJ), I browsed the ammo and found some Privi Partisan .380 for $20 a box. Two weeks ago I bought some Federal .380 for $17.99 a box so it looks like ammo is starting to get back to some semblance of normalcy. I have also noticed that online gun retailers, like Impact Guns, are actually putting guns on sale. Ruger seems to have done a run of their popular Alaskan revolver as I have seen both the .44 mag and .454 Casull versions available." ...

"While many individuals have looked at precious metals for moderate gains and even some losses over the last year, the combination of base metals like lead and brass have seen an incredible return–particularly when those base metals are combined to form .22 ammunition."

"Think about it–from one year ago until now, .22 ammunition is up over 400%. It was approximately $21 to $23 per 500 rounds in May 2012, and it’s now $100 to $135 for 500 rounds." ...

"EP Lowers recently reached out to me to tell me about their polymer 80% lowers. EP Lowers is a relatively new company, and what separates them from the competition is that their lowers are jig-less. Jigs can be kinda pricey with some of them costing over $100. EP Lowers is the first company to make a jig-less lower. I spoke with a few folks at EP Lowers and asked them how this feat was accomplished. They said the following:" ...

"One thing that could make a lot of difference is having a good handgun manipulation techniques. Equipments are hardwares and manipulation skills are softwares. You'd need both to maximize your experience."

"There are people who claim that you will learn all the techniques from just participating in the games, but that is more akin to trial-and-error. You can learn a lot more when you are prepared and enjoy more." ...

"The families of some of the Newtown, CT victims are back in Washington, D.C. Days after the latest mass shooting, six months after the Sandy Hook spree killings, they’re pressuring congress to revive their civilian disarmament agenda. According to MSNBC the anti-gun agitprop will find fertile ground in the halls of power—despite the resounding defeat that greeted the Senate’s 'expanded background checks' bill. Is MSNBC engaging in wishful thinking, or are we, hoping this latest push will peter-out? Well . . ." ...

... "I am emotional about gun violence, and I find it insulting when people dismiss my anger-induced activism. Remember, it was grieving families of those killed by drunken drivers who pushed for stricter laws. No law will prevent all gun deaths, but what if the one life it did save was someone you loved? The voices of the silent majority must speak up." ...

Submitter's Note: In court this would be called "assuming facts not in evidence". The real question should be "what if the one life the gun law cost was someone you loved?"

Female gun owners are an increasingly large segment of the market, and this documentary seems to be looking to investigate the reason behind that growth. Make the jump for their presser. . ." ...

"'Cold Steel' is a movie set on a Pacific island in WWII, where Hong Kong action star Guo Minxiang plays a Japanese sniper with a torn shirt and…an American M1941 Johnson Rifle? And a variable-power riflescope that wouldn’t be invented for another twenty-five years? Really, now: Arisakas may not get much love among American shooters but they’re actually excellent rifles, and just about any period rifle would be a superior sniper weapon to the recoiling-barrel M1941 Johnson and its delicate magazine. Why does Hollywood (or in this case, Hong Kong action cinema) get guns so wrong most of the time? . . ." ...

State law still trumps their local ordinances, but the gesture is one more that fans the flames in an increasingly divided state." ...

"With draconian new gun laws (so-called 'assault weapons' ban, standard capacity magazine ban, etc.) set to go into effect in Maryland on October 1, Maryland residents are doing what citizens always do in the face of impending oppressive gun laws--buy them while they still can. This has caused an unprecedented spike in demand in Maryland. Maryland's approach to background checks is already different from that of most states. Instead of running all background checks through the FBI's NICS (National Instant Criminal background Check System), the state conducts its own checks for sales of handguns and 'assault weapons.'" ...

"The Turkish government’s crackdown on protestors is more than vaguely reminiscent of Hosni Mubarak’s pre-'Arab Spring' action against dissidents. We know how that turned out human rights-wise. (If that’s enough of a warning, the Kurds can clue you in.) Turkey’s gun laws are just about what you’d expect them to be, too. There is no Constitutional right to keep and bear arms; only gun owners licensed by the Ministry of the Interior may lawfully acquire, possess or transfer a firearm or ammunition . . ." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms has been recognized by the General Government; but the best security of that right after all is, the military spirit, that taste for martial exercises, which has always distinguished the free citizens of these States....Such men form the best barrier to the liberties of America — Gazette of the United States, October 14, 1789.
