"Several readers have sent me a dashcam video of the Canton, OH Polizei stopping a concealed carry permit holder. I was going to hold off on posting anything on Examiner until I finished my story-gathering for tomorrow's War on Guns radio show, but the video made me so angry I thought I'd best dash something off now or it would bug me until I did."

"See the sidebar video player. Be warned, the language on the part of the 'public servant' treating citizens like inferiors to be insulted and threatened is graphic and vulgar. It's also enraging and absolutely inexcusable." ...

"'She's not yet a year old, but she already works well into the wind, can kick up a bird and if I shoot right and retrieves to hand,' I replied ... The conversation abruptly shifted to international politics -- but not in the direction I expected."

"'What are you going to do with her once 'The Empire' bans your shotguns?' he asked."

"For a moment, I was lost. 'The Empire?'"

"'Yeah,' he said, 'the U.N. -- the global imperial government in New York. 'The Empire' wants to control who can buy or keep a shotgun.'" ...

... "OK, so, 911 calls during a home invasion (for example)."

"The 911 operator is trained to keep you on the line as long as possible. In general they tend to ask the right questions at the outset (location, threat, etc.). They soon go off the reservation, saying and asking anything to stop you from terminating the 'conversation.'"

"First, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. ..." ...

"So tell the 911 operator the basics—name, nature of emergency, location and a description of yourself—and then put the phone down. Don't disconnect. Just put it down. The emergency services will keep recording the call. So they can trace you if needs be. You'll have audio evidence of whatever happens next." ...

"When Rupert Murdoch went before the British Parliament yesterday to testify about the News of the World hacking scandal, he did not attempt to downplay the severity of his employees' crimes. Rather, he apologized for the damage done and then said, 'I didn’t know of it.' When asked who, then, was responsible for the culture of criminality that had developed at News of the World, Murdoch told Parliament, 'The people I trusted and the people they trusted.'" ...

Melson’s closed-door testimony that the Justice Department sought to shift blame for Fast and Furious away from its political appointees, also will get its first opportunity to question ATF supervisors who have defended the program and the Justice Department." ...

... "Cefalu said the operation was never about actually arresting cartel members for arms trafficking, it was about headlines for the ATF and its upper echelons, more budget, more gun control, and more media attention for ATF:"
"There’s no Mister Big in Mexico, there’s no … Iron Pipeline. It doesn’t exist."

"... If there’s gunrunning on the border and thousands of guns flowing into Mexico it’s more headlines for ATF." ...
"Cefalu said the operation was akin to the DEA deciding to track the flow of drugs in a major city by putting tons of high-quality heroin on the streets, then waiting for a rash of overdoses to see which part of the city had the most drug activity." ...

"Gun owners and gun-rights advocates are fired up over a zoning change by the District of Columbia that paves the way for the only licensed gun dealer in the nation's capital ... to re-open inside police headquarters." ...

"Alan Gura, an attorney representing Welling and other residents who sued the district to make it easier for gun stores to open, says the city's anti-gun policies and zoning restrictions amount to a 'de-facto re-imposition of the D.C. handgun ban.' The case was dismissed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va., last week, but will be appealed, Gura said."

"... 'The city council has made it virtually impossible to open a gun store with ridiculous zoning laws.' [Gura said]" ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? [...] The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!" —Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago (Chapter 1 "Arrest")
