... "... As long as that policy remains in shadows, as long as stonewalling on 'Project Gunwalker' continues, answers to questions like which agencies and departments were involved--to what extent, for what purposes, and how high up in the administration knowledge and direction of operations went--will evade discovery."

"And perpetrators will evade justice." ...

... "But the NY Times article focused on some states being more attractive than others to gun manufacturers not only because of the gun laws. The article also pointed out that some states offer a more congenial environment for business in general than others--and (coincidentally?) there seems to be a fair amount of correlation between states with restrictive, regressive gun laws, and those with business-strangling tax and regulatory policies. Hence, 'right-to-work' states, where employers cannot compel their employees to join a union or pay dues, are among those that are making a case to lure gun manufacturers to move." ...

"Have you ever noticed how people do not make the argument that the First Amendment only applies to free speech of certain groups of people. What about the Fifth Amendment, no one ever says that the Fifth Amendment only applies to certain groups of people. So why do we do that with the Second Amendment? Anyone who wants to make sure that you cannot own a gun will tell you that the Second Amendment only applies to militias and the military." ...

"One of the great mysteries of our age is how it is that those on the Left, who aren’t even on speaking terms with logic and rationality, continue to regard themselves as the intellectual elite. ..." ...

"Once a person strays into the wilderness of a liberal’s brain, the chances are that if the snakes and spiders don’t get him, the quicksand will. For instance, it used to drive me nuts when those on the Left would attack the Second Amendment. I could never figure out why they seemed to feel it was unsportsmanlike for Americans to be able to defend themselves against armed criminals. ..." ...

The Truth About Bicycle Carry (video available)

"In the gun world, different types of shooters favor particular types of firearms. The same general principle applies to cyclists. Given the wide variety of riders and bicycles, there’s no simple solution for bicycle carry. A pistol-packing cyclist must balance ease of access against retention, consider concealment vs. caliber, and calculate gun size in relation to weight. In some states, open carry makes bicycle carry a relatively easy proposition. Until it doesn’t. So I’ve been investigating concealed bicycle carry. Here are the four basic types of cycling and my recommendations for each . . ." ...

"[WEISBERG:] I think he thinks of himself as conservative. He had a, you know, he had a strong tax-cutting record in Utah. He was, you know, he's pro-life, he's pro-Second Amendment, he's, in conventional terms, pretty down-the-line conservative, and I think he's been sort of mystified that someone like himself can't get a hearing in today's GOP. ..." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. — Noah Webster in "An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution," 1787, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at p. 56 (New York, 1888).
