..."Essentially, the government is conflating Americans who believe in being prepared for disruptions in normal circumstances with potential domestic enemies who bear scrutiny, and are recruiting those they patronize to spy and snitch on their customers. As potential terrorists. For such suspicious activities as buying storable food. And paying in legal tender." ...

"Over the past couple of days people have watched as London has been ripped apart by rioters."

"While we are used to seeing so called 'third-world' countries riot (i.e., Egypt), we are not used to seeing large scale riots in more developed areas."

"It’s important that we explain to the non-believers riots still happen, and have happened many times." ...

... "Sadly, we live in a society that is willing to throw away 2nd Amendment rights based on the government’s promise of security."

"Ironically, even the citizens we send off to war are disarmed when they return from overseas duty. A policy that army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan exploited when he killed 13 soldiers during a terrorist attack at Ft. Hood, Texas. Nidal knew his intended victims were unarmed, and used that fact to assure a high death toll."

"In the aftermath of Hasan's terrorist attack, the American people were outraged and demanded that military leaders take action to protect our military service members. To that end, the military leaders ... tried to further restrict the 2nd Amendment rights of active duty soldiers." ...

"Thanks to the enormous surge in concealed carry weapon licenses, the Smith & Wesson BODYGUARD series is a major league hit. Springfield’s diminutive .38 caliber revolver and .380 semi-automatic pistol have been selling like ballistic hotcakes. With Smith’s factories running full out, supplies of both guns are finally easing. You can now head down to your local gun dealer confident that you can get a BODYGUARD faster than a freshly-minted Republican presidential candidate. Ah, but should you?" ...

"First, the good news. After years of selling less-than-stellar American-made Desert Eagles, Magnum Research is once again selling Israeli-manufactured 'IWI Classic Desert Eagles.' The limited run of Israel Military Industries (IMI).44 Magnum and .50 cal semi-automatic pistols follows Kahr’s June 2010 purchase of the Eagle’s U.S. distributor cum licensee. The new/old Eagle signals [we hope] the end of 16 years of American mal-production. 'The limited production IWI manufactured Desert Eagle Pistols will utilize the original two-piece barrel design, and original 'claw type' safeties,' Kahr/Magnum press release reveals. And that, slash fans, is the bad news . . ." ...

"I’ve worked with, tested, and carried the HX120 (above). The flashlight’s strobe function will put James Guthrie into deer in the headlights mode. The max brightness setting is angry enough to leave spots on your vision even at high-noon. The momentary activation function is easily operable in any of the main flashlight holds from the various schools of light ‘em up and put ‘em down. And I’m not getting any kickback when I tell you that Insight Technology has a rebate program on HX series purchases from now through the end of the calendar year. ...

World’s First Rimless Revolver (Or Not): Charter Arms Pit Bull

"When TTAG reviewed the Charter Arms Undercover .38, we were less than impressed with the revolver’s build quality. Our experience with the Target Mag Pug left us a tad concerned about the gun’s accuracy. The review of the Chic Lady was, uh, fraught. For some reason, Charter Arms hasn’t been beating down our metaphorical door to send us testing and evaluation samples. Let’s hope they don’t read this post, ’cause I’d love to get my mitts on their new Rimless Revolver. Or one of their don’t-tell-anyone-that-Son-of-Sam-made-this-gun-famous .44 Bulldogs. In fact, Charter Arms’ new $465 (msrp) Pit Bull is built on the same frame as their .44 Special. First, the basics . . ."

... "I don’t want to get off on a rant here (again with apologies to Dennis Miller) but there was no 'particular' victim? Just 'society in general.'"

"This has been one of the major arguments for gun control all along, the 'societal cost.' Does it surprise anyone at all that the current DoJ, led by the incompetent Eric Holder, would attempt to use this case for political gain? Especially when they’re under such fire already."

"I hate to tell you this Mr. Burke, but the 'particular' victim in this case is Brian Terry. Dead, you see. Someone shot him you twit. His family are proximate victims because, well, their son is dead." ...

Now Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, is asking questions of Eric Holder as it appears Texas had its own version of Operation Fast and Furious." ...

"The impending elimination of Martin County's ban on discharging a firearm within 300 yards of a building could set the stage for a test case about whether a homeowner may legally shoot a gun in the privacy of their backyard, officials said."

"Since backyards are legally considered private, the state law against discharging a firearm in public would not apply, officials said. But sheriff's deputies and state prosecutors could rely on the state laws against culpable negligence, assault and improper exhibition of firearms to make a cause against a homeowner who shoots a gun in their backyard." ...

He believes students on college campuses have a Second Amendment right to defend themselves. ..."
