... "... Bloomberg's casual use of a sexual vulgarity in front of 'Amanda' implies it's routine. It also implies that she puts up with it because he’s the boss, he’s powerful as hell, she's a relatively powerless woman, and complaining about an offensive work environment created by a temperamental billionaire narcissist control fanatic would be, at the very least, career limiting." ...

"Rolling Stone is attacking Americans’ gun rights like never before. We’ve seen The Five Most Dangerous Guns In America, an epic Larry Pratt hit piece and How to Beat the NRA In 7 (Not-So-Easy) Steps. If that’s not enough – and it really is – RS also serves-up an interactive America’s Gun Violence Epidemic page. (The publication offers one pro-gun piece, Confessions of a Liberal Gun Lover.) Needless to say, the anti-gun articles are riddled with misinformation, mischaracterization and misdirection. So what’s a gun guy to do? You could write a stern email ... but that’s bound to be as effective as, well, gun control. So here are three things you can do to make Rolling Stone ... eat their words . . ." ...

"One commonly recurring statement from gun-control forces, including in Congress and the White House, is the supposedly reassuring comment: 'We will preserve your Second Amendment right to hunt.'"

"I will be generous here and assume that those who make such statements are prevaricating; it would be entirely too painful to believe that elected officials (or those who desire to become so) could be quite that ignorant. ..." ...

"The real cowards in the gun control debate are the Progressives who hide behind tragedies such as Newtown to conceal their real agenda and who exploit the parents of dead children to further their ideological purposes."

"Decades ago, New Jersey limited firearms’ magazine capacity to 15 rounds; nevertheless, five New Jersey cities consistently make the F.B.I’s. list of the top 50 most dangerous cities in the United States. There is absolutely no evidence to support the proposition that reducing the capacity of magazines reduces crime committed with firearms and enhances public safety. None." ...

"I have a Smith & Wesson 642-2 with a Crimson Trace Lasergrip. And I have a Kel Tec P3AT (don’t judge me) with a Crimson Trace Laserguard. So I can attest to the utility of mounting a frickin’ laser beam on a small pocket pistol. These guns really don’t have any useable sights to speak of. They’re contact distance point-and-shooters. And if you do have to make a shot at 10-15 feet or so with adrenaline dumping into your system, that red dot can be pretty handy. Smith wasn’t born yesterday. They’re well aware of this, too. And now they’re offering their bodyguard .380 pistol and .38 revolver all fitted out with CT goodness. Press release after the jump . . ." ...

"On a recent windy Saturday morning, Andy Poliakoff, a member of an anti-government group called the Oath Keepers, pulls up his black Dodge Ram ... Poliakoff had invited me to join him and a buddy on a road trip to Connecticut. They planned to protest a gun control law passed in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting ... It’s the most stringent gun control law in the nation. And it drives the Oath Keepers batty."

"The Oath Keepers is one of the fastest growing 'patriot' groups on the right. It’s a national, grassroots organization composed of mainly men and women in uniform ... who are wary of what they view as an increasingly tyrannical government, and who revere the Constitution as inviolable. ..." ...

"THANK GOODNESS ex-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg spent so much time in Southern Colorado!"

"If he hadn’t, how ever would we who live and work here have known that the four-lane, high-speed, paved path connecting Pueblo, Huerfano, Las Animas and other 'as rural as you can get' counties with the rest of the country wasn’t — in fact — an interstate?"

"Pratt did not say leaders 'should live in fear of gun violence' – but he did express Madison's view that the Second Amendment is in place to keep the government in check.

"A year and a half ago, after the massacre at Sandy Hook ... Joe Nocera, an Op-Ed columnist at the New York Times, asked me, an editorial assistant at the newspaper, to find out who gets shot in America every day."

"Joe has a young child, and he was haunted by the fact that it could easily have been his own son in that classroom. We realized that we didn’t know who the majority of gun violence victims were, the people whose deaths didn’t make it onto a CNN broadcast."

"Six weeks after Newtown, Joe wrote a column consisting of a few lines about shootings that had happened that week ... He had a blog he wasn’t using, so starting the next day, I started writing at that blog by searching for America’s shooting victims." ...

The family of 12 year-old Genesis Rincon of Paterson, N.J. made the painful decision recently to remove her from life support as she laid brain dead, the latest victim of gun violence. The young girl was shot in the head while riding her scooter home, another casualty of America’s failure to reign in the possession of firearms."

"Whether [CA gun laws] have anything to do with the decrease in violent crime in California is another matter. According to the California Department of Justice, the state’s crime decrease since 1991 is due to 10 factors not related to gun control ..." ...

"Cody Wilson, a 26-year-old radical libertarian and crypto-anarchist, did something extraordinary last year."

"He fashioned the world’s first firearm using only a 3-D printer."

"The gun, called “the Liberator,” was printed almost exclusively of plastic – save for a conventional nail used as the firing pin."

"When Wilson pulled the trigger ... he instantly became the first person in history to successfully fire a 3-D printed gun." ...

"With one pull of the trigger, Wilson forever blurred the line between gun control laws and censorship."

"It’s a polarizing topic, depending on who you ask."

"While some see Wilson’s efforts to circumvent gun control laws as immoral, others believe he’s an incredible patriot. ..." ...

"Meanwhile 46 percent support Initiative 591, the one-page measure that requires background checks to comply with a uniform national standard, the poll indicated. According to Elway, 'In April, 72% intended to vote for (I-594). Opposition rose slightly from 19% to 22%.' During the same period, support for I-591dropped nine percentage points. It had been at 55 percent when a poll was taken in April. This new poll has a plus/minus margin of error of 4.5 points, according to the Portland Oregonian." ...

But, Strange averred, there are certain places where they can be so stopped, such as high security government buildings ... and also private facilities like churches. The latter may prohibit firearms on their premises even while serving the public purpose of letting voting take place there."

"Strange’s opinion didn’t please John David Murphy ... A founding member of the gun rights group BamaCarry, Kennedy called the opinion 'horrible' for taking the position that 'private-property rights trump the right to an open poll.'" ...

"Fed up with crime, some armed Detroiters have developed itchy trigger-fingers — and Police Chief James Craig said lawbreakers are getting the message." ...

"The incident was the latest in a string of homeowners opening fire to defend themselves, although after a flurry of such shootings early this year, before Monday there hadn’t been a reported incident since May 4 — an indication that criminals are thinking twice about breaking into people’s houses, Craig said."

"Detroit has experienced 37 percent fewer robberies in 2014 than during the same period last year, 22 percent fewer break-ins of businesses and homes, and 30 percent fewer carjackings. Craig attributed the drop to better police work and criminals being reluctant to prey on citizens who may be carrying guns." ...
