"... In this case it’s worth clicking here to see the video – if just to hear the anchors’ intro. 'Ask ten people . . . what’s causing the violence you get ten different answers.' Which should have been followed by 'Ask a politician and you get a bunch of horsesh*t.' The Reverend Jesse Jackson is a politician isn’t he? A race hustler is a subset of the breed, I believe. Anyway, the money shot: 'If we can find $4 billion for those children [on the U.S. border] — and we should — we can find $2 billion for Chicago. There are more children involved, and more have been killed, and more have been shot.' Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, former White House Chief of Staff, defended his ex-box. Ish. Like this . . ." ...

"in kitchen drawers, in barns, in out and pump houses, behind bedroom doors, under beds, in open gun racks, while tagging along with adult hunters, while becoming a junior hunter, on rifle teams, on skeet and trap fields, with muzzleloaders, in the military ’69-’72, and all the rest of my adult life. I have NEVER seen a gun act of it’s own volition. It takes a human. However, an evil human can and will turn everything from his fist and boots, to a club, to a rock, to overwhelming numbers, to a car, and eventually a weapon . . ." ...

"A new report released Wednesday by the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) reveals more than 11.1 million Americans now possess concealed carry permits and licenses, more than double the estimated 4.6 million who had licenses in 2007."

"That 11.1 million number may be conservative, too. The report, which may be read here, acknowledges “numbers are not available for all states that issue permits.” It also does not account for the number of citizens carrying concealed in the four states, and most of Montana, where no license or permit is required to carry a concealed handgun." ...

"Anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg must be trying hard to be the man people love to hate, and for the past two days, editorials and news stories in Colorado about the former New York mayor’s sneering remarks regarding parts of that state could become a battle cry in parts of rural Washington."

"Why should Evergreen Staters worry about Bloomberg’s insult to residents of the Centennial State? It’s because Bloomberg was showing disdain for people who would not allow him to buy an election last year based on a gun rights-related issue — the recall of two anti-gun state senators who helped push his gun control agenda — and now the New York elitist is digging into his pocket to impact an election here." ...

"Six years ago, a man at East Stroudsburg's Wal-Mart shot a would-be robber in the leg and foot to stop the teen, who was trying to steal his money at gunpoint. The teen fired the first shot, but the citizen put a vehicle door between them and returned fire."

"A single Pennsylvania mother is finding out the hard way that honesty is not always the best policy."

"The woman, identified as 27 year-old Shaneen Allen from Pennsylvania, wanted to protect her two children, so she took a gun safety course, acquired a permit to carry and purchased a gun after doing her research on models and calibers."

"However, one thing Allen failed to research was reciprocity for her carry permit. That, along with her unfaltering honesty might land her in a New Jersey prison for 3 years." ...

Roy Huntington spent 20 years as a cop on the mean streets of San Diego, and today is one of my editors.

"A few days ago, Rolling Stone released an interview they did with Michael Bloomberg. For those who aren’t aware, Bloomberg is the multi-billionare and sole backer of the Everytown for Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action, and Mayors Against Illegal Guns ... Naturally Rolling Stone was falling all over themselves to appease the man who believes his gun control extremism will allow him to skip the line into Heaven, especially when they ask questions like 'Tell me why you’re still fighting for better gun laws even after leaving office as mayor.' Note the use of the phrase 'better' instead of 'stricter,' as if the interviewer believes in Bloomberg’s position as much as the man himself.

"I’m looking at you, Michael Bloomberg."

"The former New York City mayor mouthed off about my adopted hometown of Colorado Springs and my friends in nearby Pueblo in Rolling Stone magazine this month. He snidely bashed our neighborhoods as backwater holes 'where I don’t think there’s roads. It’s as far rural as you can get.'"

"Snotty Bloomberg is as clueless about geography as he is about the Second Amendment. Colorado Springs and Pueblo are the second- and seventh-largest cities in the state, respectively. If we’re hee-haw, everyone’s hee-haw. (And what’s wrong with hee-haw, anyway?)" ...

"A bill is not yet finished, but Sensenbrenner’s office noted that ATF functions could be absorbed by other agencies such as the FBI and U.S. Marshals. The agency has been in the bull’s eye over the past few years for such massive blunders as Operation Fast and Furious and the more recent storefront sting operations in Milwaukee, and in Oregon and Florida." ...

"A longtime former top ATF supervisor said his former employer is hobbled by a lack of supervision and leadership and folding it into the FBI and other agencies has merit." ...

"'Permit holders have to have training. They are taught when you can and cant use deadly force,' says Mark Haskin, a retired Chattanooga Police officer who is now a gun permit instructor at Shooters Depot"

"The new law is receiving mixed reviews. Some say, it could make the growing crime an issue in Chattanooga even worse. Haskin says he is pro-gun, pro second amendment and a lifetime member of the NRA, but feels this new law is pushing the envelope - making it easier for criminals to carry while commuting on the roadways." ...

"That assessment of Scott comes as the NRA notes that more pro-gun bills have been signed into law in the past four years than during any other recent single gubernatorial term. The organization sent a message to members applauding Scott for setting the record."

"Since taking office in 2011, Scott has signed into law 12 gun-related measures backed by the NRA. That is nine more than former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist approved while enjoying an equally Republican-dominated Legislature between 2007 and 2010. Crist is now running for the Democratic nomination to face Scott in the November elections." ...
