"Holy Nanny State Batman! Bloomberg’s banned big sodas! Or, to paraphrase George Taylor, they finally really did it. I know The New York City Board of Health’s decision to prohibit delis, restaurants and movie theaters from selling sugary drinks above 16 oz. isn’t particularly 'gun.' But the same Nanny State ethic that created this absurd intrusion into personal liberty sustains gun control legislation wherever it rears its ugly head. ..."

Here’s the poll question they posted: 'Christopher Lacy, the man suspected of gunning down CHP officer Kenyon Youngstrom last week during a traffic stop, had been treated for mental health problems, according to his family. Do you think that alone should restrict someone’s right to bear arms?' . . ." ...

"One of the shocks you get as someone new to guns is how much gear you’ll need to go along with your new shootin’ iron. From safety equipment to optics, holsters, cleaning kits and anything in between, there’s no shortage of additional materiel to attract your disposable dollars. Since my budget is, shall we say, limited, I usually end up reading reviews and looking at pictures of all the gear I hope to lay out my cash for some day. But if you’re gonna shoot your gun (and you really should) you have to get it — along with all the associated paraphernalia — from home to range and back again. So there was one purchase I just couldn’t put off any longer; a range bag . . ." ...

"The people of Illinois are a bunch of rebels."

"A friend of mine is studying to be a gunsmith asked me recently what I would do if I were going to design a gun. At first, I thought we were just talking. Then I realized he was serious. But the sad thing is, I simply don't know. I have no idea."

"I had never considered what a gun would look like, if I could design it and build it from scratch. But I like the idea. And it got me thinking about the classic designs, and about the really odd-ball innovations. I have just as much respect for the guns that look radically different."

"Here are four guns that are currently in production that seem to completely buck tradition." ...

... "Ron had posted a while back about policing brass and range etiquette and I thought I’d tag along with that and mention that steel targets like these are for handgun loads only. It’s unbelievable that someone would ruin expensive hardware like this. One would think that after punching a hole in one, oops better not kill off the other ones. I’d say, this person(s) knew what they were doing."

"So, don’t shoot steel targets that don’t belong to you with rifle rounds. Pretty simple stuff."

"When my father died a couple of years ago, I inherited a couple of oddball pistols. One was a Savage Model 101, a pseudo-revolver single shot novelty. The other was a German eight shot revolver with an 8-inch barrel. I kept the Savage and sold the revolver without a second thought. I don't even remember the brand. All I remember is that it shot straight and I sold it for a bag of beans."

"On New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2011, President Obama signed into law H.R. 1540, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA). This innocuous sounding bill, a version of which is passed every year, contained something much different than previous versions."

"For those who aren’t paying attention, this is one you shouldn’t ignore because it is directed at YOU. Let me repeat myself … this bill gives the federal government the draconian power to arrest American citizens … on American soil … without a warrant … and to detain them indefinitely … without trial or hearing. This is a law so destructive to our concept of due process that it has drawn criticism and concern from all corners of the political spectrum." ...

"A spate of gun violence has beset the United States ahead of the November election – including shootings at New York's Empire State Building; an Aurora, Colo., theater; and an Oak Creek, Wis., Sikh temple – raising the perennial question about how effectively America regulates the 300 million-plus guns in its collective gun cabinet. Yet neither presidential candidate is likely to hoist his own complicated record on gun regulation as a rallying cry."

"The Sidney, Neb.-based retailer and other companies in the guns-and-ammo business say if Mr. Obama wins a second term they are preparing for a surge in sales—the same as they saw after he was elected in 2008—from buyers fearful the president would back policies to make buying a gun more difficult. If Republican challenger Mitt Romney wins, though, the chain plans to stock more items such as waterproof boots and camouflage hunting gear." ...

"Buckeye Firearms Foundation had an opportunity to provide assistance to a youth camp recently. The camp is the Coonskin Cap Brigade operated by the Ohio Wildlife Federation. All the leadership and instructors at the Coonskin Cap Brigade camp are volunteers. Due to many factors, including the economy and rising cost of ammunition, the instructors on the ranges experienced a shortage of some ammo. The concern was that some students in the camp might not get to shoot as much as in the past. Buckeye Firearms Foundation was able to react to the situation and provide a donation of ammunition and supplies ensuring the students would get plenty of range time." ...
