... "Today’s report, consisting of documents identified as #3, #4 and #5, will lay out the evidence that the dealer was cooperating with ATF in identifying and reporting on suspects being watched, establishing that it was well within the capability and power of agents to arrest the traffickers and intercept the gun Shipley sold before it was smuggled into Mexico, something that was later exploited with great effect by the prosecution to condemn the defendant in the eyes of the jury. For reference, those documents have been posted in this columnist’s Scribd account." ...
 

Gun Sales Set to Peak?

"TTAG's already reported that the U.S. firearms industry may be looking at a serious glut. Their all-guns-blazing drive to capitalize on the post-Obama/CCW sales surge could make them victims of their own success; pushing down prices and cutting profits. According to marketwatch.com, Keybanc Capital Markets’ Scott Hamann doesn’t quite see it that way. He’s pessimistic for other reasons: 'Given the significant outperformance of the industry compared to the broader market, coupled with what we believe to be close to peak near-term retail demand trends, we believe further upside in the stocks could be limited and the risk/reward dynamic is no longer compelling.' In other words, demand will slow. And so . . ." ...

... "Interestingly, though, Lautenberg and McCarthy seem unconcerned that the U.S. government is buying hundreds of millions of rounds--many in calibers that few if any government agencies are issued weapons for. 'U.S. government,' by the way, as used in this article, refers only to various government agencies (such as the Social Security Administration), and does not include military ammunition purchases (while the military war-games suppressing a 'Tea Party insurgency'). McCarthy, who, remember, just said that her legislation 'pulls ammunition sales out of the shadows and into the light,' has so far been silent about the fact that now, the government seems suddenly to want to hide its own ammo shopping spree from public scrutiny." ...

Diaspora Jewish culture is almost pacifist. And the general Jewish view is that non-Jews play with guns, not us Jews. A home with guns is as foreign to a Jewish liberal as gefilte fish is to a Mississippi Baptist."
