"September 11, 2012 is an auspicious day for at least two reasons that I can think of. First and foremost, its a day of remembrance of terrible events that happened only a few short years ago. Events that jarred many in this county out of the safe cocoon-like feeling that they had lived in and brought to their attention that even ordinary, everyday people could be victims of extreme acts of hatred and violence . . ." ...

"Some might suggest that many of the people who died 11 years ago today were victims of the 'gun free zone' mentality that extended to the nation’s cockpits."

"In the hours after the terrorist attacks, the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms took a leadership role in pushing for armed pilots. Why government bureaucrats made that so difficult when so many were willing to volunteer remains a mystery." ...

"The world of gun control is like Sponge Bob’s Opposites Day, only never ending. For example, gun control advocates would have citizens believe that restricting law-abiding Americans’ ability to exercise their Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms makes them safer. In fact unconstitutional infringement on the Second Amendment makes Americans more vulnerable to violent crime ... Now check this: 'Pennsylvania lawmakers quietly disarmed the state House of Representatives’ 16 guards after learning that one had a violent criminal history,' philly.com opines. 'It seems the legislators are more than willing to restrict who can carry a gun when it comes to their personal safety. Too bad the general public isn’t given the same consideration.' Hang on . . ." ...

"'In the aftermath of last month’s rampage killing at a Sikh Temple in Wisconsin, some members of the religion are considering arming themselves in order to defend against future attacks,' businessinsider.com reports. No way! C’mon. Really? 'I think that being able to legally obtain and carry a gun is the best thing any Sikh can do, especially after 9/11 where there have been over 800 documented cases of harassment and violence against us,' Sim J. Singh told foxnews.com. As opposed to hundreds of thousands of cases of harassment and violence against Jews, African-Americans, OFWGs, Asians, gays and other Americans who aren’t Sikhs? Anyway, gopher it. But why is Fox News searching the country for pro-gun control Sikhs? Check this . . ." ...

"I live in MA and so my personal experience with firearms has been spotty at best.I was fortunate to have grown up in the Boy Scouts and with several veteran Uncles who taught me at an early age the proper respect and techniques for handling firearms of all types and sizes. I plan on purchasing my first firearm between the end of 2012 and the end of Spring 2013. I am curious what your (individual or collective) opinions would be on what a good all-purpose first firearm would be. I plan to start with a handgun . . ." ...
 

Forty-Five Face-off: Springfield Armory XD-S vs. Glock 36

"The Springfield Armory XD-S and the Glock 36 are two single stack pistols — made in Croatia and Austria, respectively — that shoot America’s favorite big-bore cartridge. Aside from their steel and polymer composition and caliber — the venerable .45ACP — the two pistols don’t share much in common. Still, if that Shakespeare guy could compare an unknown prom queen (or king) to a summer’s day, I guess an old gun writer can compare these two pistols one to the other . . ." ...

"I dipped my toe into the world of modern black sporting rifles when I picked up an AR-15 a little less than a year ago. I needed something to do on the weekends when I’m out on the road by myself and fresh air at the range beats cable TV in a generic hotel room. It all started when I saw an M&P Sport for a little over $600 hanging on the wall in a Wyoming sporting goods store. I’d never seen an AR-15 for that price so . . ." ...

Apparently my sister isn’t the only one that thinks pink is perfect for their Barbie doll like firearm — in fact, there has apparently been so much demand that Magpul has decided to start making their MOE furniture in pink.

"After a tiring day spent in TSA queues and miniscule airline seats yesterday, the cosmic balance has been restored. I spent an exhausting and awesome day shooting, learning and testing a slew of new gear from Bushnell, at a totally kick-ass shooting resort in southern Kentucky. We did so much shooting today that after an entire day at the range I was actually ready to stop shooting and eat something. That doesn’t happen often . . ." ...

"Hot on the heels of yesterday’s column about Hollywood’s evolving take on gun rights, comes the tale of yet another star who profits greatly from glorifying guns in film while apparently embracing gun control for all us ordinary mortals."

"The star in this case is New Zealand born actor Karl Urban. ..."

"He is best known for two roles, Bones on the 2009 Star Trek reboot and Russian Secret Service assassin Kirill in The Bourne Supremacy. And on September 21, he will return to the big screen with his biggest role yet as Judge Dredd in a much-touted 3D reboot of the popular and gritty comic book franchise."

"As you may recall, the last big screen appearance of Judge Dredd featured rabid anti-gunner Sylvester Stallone ..." ...
