... "That is significant, particularly in Connecticut, where draconian measures were enacted in the wake of Newtown, and where Democrat Gov. Dannell P. Malloy has made 'gun control' a defining platform of his administration, one he’s been vocal about extending to the national level. Yet Belsito and Horn were competing for the gun owner vote, not for the citizen disarmament faction. " ...

"According to the federal government's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, companies who reject prospective employees based on the results of criminal background checks may be guilty of unfair hiring practices. They may, furthermore, be guilty of racist hiring practices, since black men are more than six times as likely as white men to have been previously incarcerated, and Hispanic men more than twice as likely. ..." ...

"What caught my eye in this evolving story is the fact that the victims were described as being in their 40's and 50's. I often run across men over 50 who tell me that their lives are very safe at their age and they do not need a gun. No one is safe at any age these days and workplace violence is not uncommon. ..." ...

"Rep. Jeff Duncan must not be very good at Googling. His 'revelation' that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is tooled-up is about as new as the 'discovery' that Israel is the birthplace of some particularly attractive women. Back in August 2010, TTAG reported on an IRS raid on Tennessee rapper David Darnell Brown (a.k.a. 'Young Buck') where agents were equipped with plenty ‘o shotguns. Here’s a fedbizopps.gov bid solicitation for 60 Remington shotguns for the Tea Party tormentors. All that said, usnews.com reports that Rep Duncan’s got his knickers in a twist because the IRS has joined law enforcement officers nationwide in switching from scatterguns to rifles . . ." ...

"California Senator Barbara Boxer sees last week’s shooting in Santa Monica as a boon for anti-gun groups. During an interview on MSNBC, after the obligatory sad-faced 'our thoughts and prayers go out to the families' statement, she let us know exactly where her thoughts really are: on gun control. It didn’t take her long to wave the Sandy Hook bloody shirt, then said the Santa Monica shooting will help the gun control movement because 'it gives us wind at our back.' That should help offset all the hot air coming out of her front and keep her from falling over. And at the same time, across the nation in Jersey . . ." ...

"Kevin Brittingham, founder of Advanced Armament Corp (one of the three big silencer manufacturers in the US), was abruptly fired from his position at the helm of the company just a few short months after AAC was acquired by The Freedom Group. At the time, both Freedom Group and Kevin held their cards close to their respective vests. But now Kevin has filed suit against Freedom Group claiming that they owe him millions of dollars, there were no grounds for the termination and that it was merely a ploy by the conglomerate to avoid paying him. Now all the chips are being laid on the table . . ." ...

... "Walther is a company on the rise. As you can probably tell by all of the press attention, the venerable old German arms maker has really hit one out of the park with their PPQ M2. My initial impression of the PPQ M2 is that it may just be the best GLOCK clone made to date. Nonetheless, while the PPQ M2 may be all the rage, another new less expensive 'entry level' Walther handgun recently hit the market: the PPX. To be honest, when I first unboxed the PPX, I thought it was a frickin’ Hi-Point. Which is to say that it’s rather, um, portly and homely in the looks department. And apparently I’m not alone in this observation. But after spending a couple of months testing the PPX, I’ve really warmed up to this plump princess . . ." ...
 

Trigger reset? Don't need no stinkin' trigger reset.

"I keep reading about trigger resets in gun forums. Guys will recommend buying one gun over the other because it has a short trigger reset and therefore can shoot follow-up shots much faster. The problem is that they usually mean faster at paper targets that do not shoot back either at the range or in competition, although most who talk about trigger resets do not even compete. There are several things wrong with training to use trigger resets for self-defense." ...

"Everyone knows the horrific power of a dark, monstrous tornado. When a powerful tornado (rated by the National Weather Service as an EF-4 with winds up to 200 MPH) ripped through central Oklahoma in May 2013, homeowner Pat Brand lost everything. He huddled along with 10 neighbors in a protective underground shelter as the violent storm roared overhead. When he emerged after the tornado passed, gone were his home, truck and a Smith &Wesson® handgun that was equipped with Crimson Trace Lasergrips." ...

"The first instinct of teachers and school staff is to love and protect their children."

"We saw that six months ago, when a gunman broke into Sandy Hook Elementary School and mercilessly gunned down 20 innocent children and six educators. Those educators, who risked and gave their lives protecting their students, are heroes." ...

"We need to follow the lead of Connecticut on the national level and enact commonsense gun legislation that also respects and values the Second Amendment. We can preserve the rights of hunters and sportsmen, and still keep guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't be armed and prevent deadly assaults with weapons that can fire six bullets per second, like the one used at Sandy Hook." ...

"President and Mrs. Obama are planning a trip to sub-Saharan Africa later in the month, but the White House has scotched a plan to include a Tanzanian safari on the agenda after a reporter revealed that a team of snipers with high-powered military assault rifles would accompany him in the wild."

"The Washington Post reported Thursday afternoon that the itinerary's dangers 'would have required the president’s special counterassault team to carry sniper rifles with high-caliber rounds that could neutralize cheetahs, lions or other animals if they became a threat.'" ...

"An Illinois prosecutor is refusing to prosecute carriers of concealed weapons in his county, even though the governor is still weighing the bill that would allow concealed carry statewide. The attorney’s announcement puts him amongst a burgeoning crop of local officials nationwide who are 'going rogue' in civil disobedience efforts against mounting calls for greater gun control." ...

Submitter's Note: Odd that refusing to obey a law which the court has ruled unconstitutional is considered civil disobedience.

"The first of what will likely be a chain of editorials supporting the gun control initiative filed by the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility appeared today in the Vancouver Columbian."

"Almost predictably, the newspaper lauds 'wise Washingtonians' for taking action 'when both the Legislature and Congress failed to act.' The Columbian also pats itself on the back for being 'part of that burgeoning wave of public support' for a measure that Bellevue-based gun rights advocate Alan Gottlieb yesterday said is 'overly restrictive by a long shot.' There is much to digest in the 15-page document." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the constitution they don't like. — Alan Dershowitz
