The difficulty was that gun-control advocates overreached in the early days,” Goss says. “By pushing for handgun bans, they didn’t build up a momentum from lower-level, more incremental victories. These handgun-ban strategies helped energize and politicize the NRA and make it into the no-compromises ‘gun lobby’ that it is today.So, the prohibitionists, unlike gun rights supporters, didn't bother to build a grassroots organization in the early days instead trying to do it all in one fell swoop at the Federal level. Didn't work out so well for them did it. They're trying to correct that now but still haven't figured out the difference between grassroots and astroturf. It really comes down to who can get the vote out. We can. It remains to be seen if the prohibitionists can, even with Mikey's money behind them.

ARLNow.com first reported the gun was in an active duty service member's car in the cemetery's parking lot before it fired*. He was trying to move the gun from under the seat when it fell to the ground, injuring a passenger in the leg, Sharon Walker, spokeswoman for Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, told CBSNews.com. Weapons are banned at the cemetery.I'm pretty sure there was a finger involved there somehow.

So, who's pushing the meme? I'd bet either the White House or Bloomberg. Anyway, with an intense minority of only five million NRA members and God only knows how many fellow travelers, my money is still on the NRA.

Thank you, sir.

The panel included: WRAL anchor David Crabtree, psychiatrist Dr. Assad Meymandi, Congressman David Price. Crabtree struck me as the stereotypical clueless news anchor. Meymandi was a nice counterpoint to Price. Meymandi didn't address gun violence at all but improvements in mental health. That I can support. Price on the other hand brought with him all his tired old prohibitionist bullshit. Lets see...gun owners are an "intense minority" and don't represent the views of most Americans. Manchin/Toomey was a moderate measure on background checks, no to standard capacity magazines, no semi-automatic weapons, individual rights are all subject to some control,blah, blah, blah. I finally got to see Price in person and confirm what a worthless, arrogant and typical liberal politician/academic he is, but the highlight of my night was when someone commented on what a statesman Price had become. Hell, I'd be satisfied if he were just an ex-politician.
All in all, the trip to Raleigh wasn't a total waste. Gun owners showed the flag, and Quail Ridge Books and Music is actually a nice little bookstore. If it weren't in Raleigh, I'd go back.
So, they legally can't have a gun, knife, stun gun, or pepper spray. No one could pick up a piece of lumber, pipe, or a cricket bat and knock the shit out of 'em? It's not the access to weapons. It's the culture and government that's turned the Brits into helpless sheep.

He's not the first to blow such an opportunity. When Gene Roddenberry finally got the chance to bring the original crew to the big screen what did he do? He rehashed episodes from the series. The only good thing about that movie was it was Trek and some Trek was better than none. Just saying.

In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material. This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.Then we hear that the subpoena that allowed the DOJ to, lets call it what it was, spy on one, James Rosen, of Fox News was signed off on by Holder himself.
He lied to Congress. President Obama is troubled enough by these events to order Holder to investigate...himself.

I hope he sodomizes them with a 6 foot lawyer. - Michael Z. WilliamsonMad Mike's comment on the arrest of Daniele Perazzi, president of the Italian Perazzi Shotgun by Denver area law enforcement for "terroristic activities". I suspect that by the time Perazzi is through with them, they'll wish it was only a 6 foot lawyer.
UPDATE: Make that the alleged arrest of Daniele Perazzi.

This is in addition to Dickinson’s AB 760, which would impose a five cent tax on every round of ammunition sold in California. Ironically, the tax would be more expensive than the actual bullets. If Dickinson’s bill passes, the cost of bullets in California will go through the roof.So sales will go through the roof in California until the tax goes into effect, then sales in Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon will peak along the border. California will have to spend what little revenue they gain on measures to stop smugglers who bring ammo in to sell on the black market. So they'll raise the tax rate again...and their local vendors suffer, shed employees, and go out of business.
Don't these idiots have anything better to do than fuck up their economy any worse than it already is?

D.C. Considers Mandatory $250K Insurance Policy for Gun BuyersThere. Fixed it for you.
Some gun-control advocates believe that insurance can help reduce gun
violenceownership by encouraging responsible gun ownershipdiscouraging potential gun owners with onerous regulation.
The biggest surprise is that only two members of the D. C. Council are for it.
It's a movie prop, and you're an idiot.
Nothing more need be said.

The one change I'd have loved to see would have been near the end when Spock and Uhura were battling Khan. Spock was beating the ever loving crap out of him. Uhura tells Spock they need Khan alive to save Kirk. Ya see Khan's blood has special superhuman healing properties. Spock lets him live.
What should have happened? Spock should have looked at Uhura and told her, "There are 72 more supermen on the ship in cryrosleep. We don't need this one." Yeah. Yeah. I know. I can dream though can't I.

This bill would repeal Durham's local act that requires handguns be registered in Durham County. no other county in North Carolina has such a requirement. When preemption became the law of the land here this act stood. It has long needed repeal but when the Democrats were in control of the House and Senate the fact that Durham County's local government officials wanted it was enough to leave it be. For the most part it has been rarely enforced until recently. Now the Sheriff notifies those applying for permits that if they don't register they are in violation and subject to legal action. We have a new Sheriff finishing the term of his predecessor. My opinion is if he wants to get elected he has to kiss the ass of MAIG Mayor Bill Bell and other local anti-gun politicians. Personally I'd like to take that pressure off him by killing this local intolerable act. Call your representatives and ask them to SUPPORT this bill. The local Durham trash will oppose.

German Homeschooling Family’s Request for Asylum Denied by the U.S. GovernmentAND our government is giving what amounts to amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants from south of the border but it won't allow one family from Germany to stay here to avoid religious persecution. Land of the free huh?
The ruling essentially states that “the Romeikes [have] not shown that Germany’s enforcement of its general school-attendance law amounts to persecution against them, whether on grounds of religion or membership in a recognized social group.”
The compulsory attendance laws — and related punishments if violated — apply to everyone, and therefore this isn’t a case of persecution, they say.

The couple's baby daughter and the wife's mother were in the home about 1:40 a.m. Monday when the couple were awakened by barking dogs. The man went to check on the dogs and was confronted by the intruder. They started fighting and the wife jumped in to help. The intruder died at the scene, the sheriff's office said.The wife stabbed him with a knife. Her family is safe, and the evil git is dead. Whatever works.

Didn't the two ultra evil gits use powder from fireworks to make their bombs? Bill doesn't mention fireworks or pressure cookers for that matter. As I said it another thinly veiled attack on your Second Amendment rights from the usual suspects.
Call your representatives and tell them what to do.

Does Trip Gabriel really know how these people feel? He's there, at the funeral, talking to them. But he's the reporter the NYT sent! Imagine yourself in a small town, at the funeral for a 2-year-old girl and there's a NYT reporter, who you know is there because these elite people somewhere, who never otherwise pay any attention to you, see potential to use that girl's dead body for leverage in a national political debate.Disgusting bastards.
Just how do you expect to keep people from making anything, much less guns, in their home with a 3D printer without doing even more damage to the Constitution and our liberty than you already have. The answer is you can't, and Charlie, you don't care.

UPDATE: Day by Day. Interesting isn't it.

He violated the law, but it wasn't intentional or, I'd argue, knowingly and willfully" done. He did a kid thing. He forgot. Hopefully the prosecutors will exercise the judgement of which the school administrators and police weren't capable. Just saying...
Houston schools cancel NRA safety program after discovering NRA connection?
That darned NRA — hiding its involvement in gun-safety programs! The Houston Chronicle reports that two schools in the city were shocked, shocked to discover that Eddie Eagle’s child-oriented firearms safety presentation were backed by the NRA, and canceled the program after the NRA had issued a press release noting the presentation
