"'Two police officers, training on patrol rifles…suffered injuries Wednesday morning when one of the firearms exploded,' a recent news account reports. Fortunately, the injuries were not life-threatening."

"It was reported the rifle in question is widely used by law enforcement. An initial inspection shows the gun was not defective."

"But here's the thing about that rifle: It's a semiautomatic rifle and includes features such as a pistol grip, a 30-round capacity magazine, collapsible stock … the very features anti-gunners use to define an 'assault rifle.' The very features the anti-gunners demand banning from private ownership." ...

... "If you want to know how hypocritical Hollywood is, you could read Ben Shapiro’s Primetime Propaganda and hear, in their own words, leading writer-producers and studio executives proudly boast about blacklisting conservatives. ..."

"But, as if that weren’t bad enough, there is their two-faced approach to the Second Amendment. We all know how much Hollywood hates guns, except, of course, when it comes to their movies and crime shows. However, when Charlton Heston became president of the NRA, he became an instant pariah in spite of the fact he had an Oscar on his mantel and had long-championed the Civil Rights movement."

"What Hollywood’s top dogs ... don't like to talk about is that their bodyguards are well-armed ..." ...

"'The number comes from the Center for Disease Control because it's considered a public health issue,' says Lance Orchid, the campaign manager for the Mayors Against Illegal Guns 'Fix Gun Checks' Tour. It is more like an epidemic. When a large, red billboard truck pulls up outside City Hall in Trenton, New Jersey at 8:30 am on May 9, 2011, the last stop on a fifty city tour intended to raise awareness and support for the urgent need to change the ineffective laws surrounding background checks to purchase firearms, the digital, constantly updating number on the mobile billboard truck reads 4,109. That is 4,109 people murdered in preventable, illegal gun deaths since the Tucson shooting this past January. ..." ...

"A proposal to allow patrons of Ohio bars and restaurants to take concealed guns into them has been improved - but it still is playing with fire, in our opinion." ...

"Still, many bar and restaurant owners are concerned about the plan. As they have pointed out, guns and booze aren't a good mix." ...

Submitter's Note: Since "guns and booze aren't a good mix" will you support a law to prohibit all gun owners (including cops) from possessing alcohol in their homes? I mean, all that booze and those guns "mixing" in peoples' home will surely lead to "rivers of blood", right?

"Dodson: Sir, I can tell you what I was told. I was told that the goal is to ultimately target and bring an entire cartel to prosecution."

"Chaffetz: How were they going to do that? The suspected cartels were in Mexico, were they not?"

"Dodson: Yes sir, they were. I have no idea how they planned to do that by this operation, or how it was designed to function."

"And in fact, no one can adequately begin to explain (or, really, even inadequately explain) how this was supposed to work. ..."

... "Almost entirely overlooked by most of the media is the ongoing investigation of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the U.S. Justice Department and their attempt to track illegal gun sales to foreign nationals and the blockade on information about the scheme from any knowledgeable persons."

"From the President and Attorney General Holder on down, no government official professes any knowledge whatsoever of 'Fast and Furious.' Jerry Pappe's June 10 letter brought to light some of the efforts of concerned congressmen trying to unravel this clandestine boondoggle." ...

"Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who today stepped down from his job representing New York’s 9th District, was a protégé of anti-gun Senator Charles Schumer, who used to hold that very congressional seat, and was once Weiner’s boss."

"In fairness to Mr. Schumer, who is described as Weiner's mentor by Fox News, it is a pity that Weiner didn't follow Schumer's example in private life. To our knowledge, there is no personal scandal in Schumer's background. Our differences with Schumer are strictly philosophical and political." ...

"In this week's column, I describe how the San Francisco Police Department is attempting to fire a 24-year veteran for resisting orders to illegally search a journalist's records."

"Oakland First Amendment attorney David Greene was astonished by the move: 'The right thing to do is not to purposefully and knowingly break the law ... it does seem odd to me that that decision would be considered grounds for discipline against an officer.'"

"The quest to fire Officer Frank Lee is even more extraordinary when one considers that the Department has not disciplined six officers whose illegal searches have scuttled 120 criminal cases." ...
