Does he even realize this is the argument the Gun control movement has been calling bullshit on for decades when we make it. Bad guys are going to get the guns whether we have regulation or not. Regulation and gun control laws only keep guns from the law abiding.
Maybe I should title this post Gall.

MILLER: Backdoor gun banEmily Miller on microstamping.
It would serve New York State right to have the firearms manufacturers in the state pick up and move, with their jobs, lock stock and barrel to other states. Then bar their distributors from doing business with any state or municipal agency in New York.

GRNC Alert 6-19-12: Senator Apodaca Thumbs Nose At Gun Owners
Senator Doug Berger (D, GRNC ****) attempted a discharge petition to force HB 111 out of the Finance Committee for a vote on the floor of the NC Senate. Bravo! But, wait! Senator Apodaca (delivering on his angry words to a member) will have none of that and has pulled a procedural trick to block this. By re-referring it to the Commerce Committee, Apodaca resets the clock on HB 111 and it cannot be brought out via a discharge petition for at least 10 days. This move essentially assures that the clock will run out on HB 111, effectively thumbing his nose at your wishes....and he told a caller that it will not come up for a vote and it's because of GRNC so there. That's exactly the kind of adult behavior we need from our alleged friends. I don't live in his district but I'll gladly contribute to whoever runs against him.
H/T to Bubba.

Issa: Meeting with Holder on Fast & Furious is set, still no documentsThey're talking bout on Fox News and it seems that they have the votes and Issa is ready to go but Boehner is still dragging ass. Probably best not to hold our breath.

Now if good and bad were determined as simple as whether you're a Republican or Democrat. For instance, in North Carolina it's Republicans that are blocking Restaurant Carry [HB 111] from a Senate floor vote. With friends like these...*
*Yeah, Senators Berger and Apodaca, that is a jab at y'all.

GRNC Alert 6-13-12: Tell Republicans to Deliver On PromisesApparently, the Republican leadership is feeling the pressure but still digging in. They want to wait for the long session to deal with it which is probably code for not in our lifetime. Keep up those emails and phone calls until the put it on the Senate floor for an up or down vote. If HB 111 is such a problem then they can show a little backbone and vote against it with the expected consequences.

So call President Pro Tem Phil Berger and Rules Chair Tom Apodaca tomorrow between 9am and 11am and demand they move Restaurant Carry to the Senate floor for a vote.

GRNC Alert 6-11-12: Republicans Lose Spine on Restaurant CarryIt seems clear by now that Republican Leadership sent HB111 to t he Finance Committee to die. Apparently they fear the Democrats in the next election more than they do us. When the Republican come into power they always take gun owners for granted. Time to show them their error. Read the alert and start making phone calls and sending emails.

Botetourt County Sheriff’s Deputy T. Francis said the Fincastle man had stopped in his vehicle just after 6 p.m. in a parking lot in the 5200 block of Lee Highway in Troutville after buying the gun. The man, whom officials did not name, “was unfamiliar with the operations of the firearm,” Francis said.I guess he didn't know that if you pull the trigger the pistol goes boom. Fortunately, it appears it's not a fatal lesson.

DA: Officer shot wife in buttocks while showing gun to family, friendsHe violated rules 1 through 3. I'll lay odds he broke the "guns and alcohol don't mix" rule. He's damn lucky his wife is alive to tell the tale.

Of course, a larger caliber that requires less care with shot placement is a far better caliber than the .22. There was a good reason 20th Century police went from the .32 to the .38 and now to .40′s and .45′s. In an emergency, you really do not have time to pick your shot placement.
