"In the days since last week’s massacre in Norway, I’ve read on more than one occasion the proposition that the whole tragedy could have been avoided if only Norwegians had the right to bear arms the same way that Americans do."

"What nonsense–and I don’t just mean the nonsense of using another country’s tragedy to make a point about domestic U.S. politics. I also mean the nonsense of suggesting that Norway would be a more peaceful place if more people there were packing heat." ...

... "'The easy availability of high-capacity ammo magazines in the U.S. has once again helped enable a large-scale massacre,' McCarthy said in a statement."

"[The shooter] left behind a 1,518-page manifesto providing some glimpse into what motivated his alleged attacks. Portions of the manifesto detail [the shooter]'s gun and ammunition purchases, including a passage describing his mail-order purchase of 30-round ammunition magazines from an unnamed U.S. supplier, McCarthy noted."

"'10 x 30 round magazines ...' [the shooter] wrote ..." ...

Submitter's Note: So are we to believe that if Carolyn's ban had been in effect and the shooter'd gotten 30 x 10 round mags she would not now be calling for a limit of 5 rounds per mag?

... "On Wednesday, about two dozen residents of Atlanta's Washington Park neighborhood, which is on the borderline between northwest and southwest Atlanta, marched in front of the pawn shop in their neighborhood where a suspected murderer bought the weapon police say he used in the crime." ...

"Protestors want the pawn shop to stop selling firearms, period." ...

"'Getting rid of guns and closing down the store is not going to be the answer to the crime and the situation in this area,' said Dave Frommer, the one carrying the pistol. 'In fact, more people carrying guns and taking responsibility for their own lives and their own protection is what really helps a neighborhood.'" ...
 

Demonizing the Mini-14

"Monday, we talked about efforts by the forcible citizen disarmament lobby to exploit the victims of the Norway atrocity for more 'gun control.' Now that they have had more time to get their talking points (such as they are) together, it seems that the best they can muster is to paint the Ruger Mini-14 as an 'assault rifle,' and thus far too 'dangerous' to be owned by lowly private citizens." ...

"Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) said on a conference call Wednesday evening that he will try to get a White House official who may have had knowledge of the botched Fast and Furious gunrunning operation to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee."

"But Issa, who chairs the committee, was not optimistic about the effort. 'Try? Yes,' he said, asked whether he would try to get the official into his committee room. But Issa noted that there has been 'political interference at the highest level' throughout the Oversight committee’s Fast and Furious investigation." ...

... "Tuesday's hearing exposed the anti-gun animus of several people within the Obama Administration, and their answers continued to beg the question: Was Operation Fast and Furious all about drumming up more support for gun control?"

"Gun Owners of America met with three persons from the House committee prior to the hearing. The meeting was 'off the record,' so we can't report on the details. Only to say, GOA brought up a hard-and-fast link between the White House and 'Fast and Furious' -- and encouraged committee members to pursue a line of questioning that would publicly expose this connection." ...

Similarly, let's for now not wrestle with the question of how such ignorance could possibly be consistent with the conscientious meeting of the responsibilities of their high offices."

"Instead, let's look at some of the recently revealed information about how many government officials did know about it. ..." ...

WI: Candidate’s view on guns scary

... "Shelly Moore has tried to mask her extreme anti-gun views with clever rhetoric, but the proof is in the pudding. I doubt that Shelly Moore has ever even purchased a Wisconsin hunting or fishing license or taken any gun safety courses. Obviously, that is not an issue on its own — I know lots of good folks who choose not to hunt, fish or take gun safety classes."

"But when coupled with her views on concealed carry, it presents a scary picture. What scares me most is that, if elected, Moore will vote with a Senate Majority Leader (if the Democrats take back the majority) who is openly hostile to guns and gun owners. You can bet that she and other Senate Democrats will be pushing an anti-gun agenda." ...

"Since the day Ohio's concealed carry law was passed in 2004, the battle to educate business owners about the fallacies of posting 'no-guns' signs has waged in earnest."

"There have been many victories - some signs were taken down within days or even hours of being posted, after customers had informative conversations with business owners. Other 'no-guns' policies have persisted for years, despite many attempts by their customers to inform them of the truth, or even despite being given proof that criminals don't care about the signs (i.e. armed robberies within their establishments.)" ...

"Of course, I haven't seen an anti-gun politician yet who wasn't a deceitful, left wing, socialist crook. This is common among elitists. Finally JPFO Inc. at www.jpfo.org has done considerable research on this issue and deserves the high moral ground on firearms." ...

"A bloody, stinking sheep's carcass greets shepherd Yves Vignon as he walks to check on his flock on the foggy Alpine heights. It's the 17th of his ewes to be savaged in a month."

"The mountains over Grenoble were once an ideal grazing ground for his 900 sheep. But now, after long banishment, the wolves are back -- bolder and hungrier than ever." ...

"European Union law forbids Vignon to reach for a rifle to solve his wolf problem, though as a last resort authorities can authorise the strategic shooting of a particularly deadly wolf, up to a limit of six per year." ...
