So you support background checks?

“We’re not trying to stop background checks,” Gottlieb said. “We’re taking action against a poorly-written and unconstitutionally vague measure that criminalizes activities that are perfectly legal anywhere else in the country, thus striking at the very heart of a constitutionally-protected, fundamental civil right.”
Not good. Mr. Gottlieb, how 'bout you guys stick to litigation.

SAF challenges Washington State gun control initiative 594

The grounds are vagueness. Good.

Now that's interesting.

Teen wounded in accidental shooting at gun range

"The cartridge did not properly load into the rifle's chamber, but instead, lodged sideways in the ejection port with enough force that the bullet was discharged. When a full cartridge or spent casing gets lodged in the ejection port, it is commonly referred to as a stovepipe," the statement said.

I'd really like to see the final report on this one.

Yep

It's what they do...

...lie*.
State NAACP President Rev. William Barber noted at the ceremony that a police officer is killed in the line of duty every 58 hours. While he called it “wrong,” he also claimed a black man is killed every 28 hours by an “officer or vigilante.”
*mislead using bullshit statistics and studies. Same damn thing.

The Interview

I don't think there is a Seth Rogen movies I've gotten past the thirty minute mark on. The Interview isn't any different. Maybe all the funny stuff was after I stopped watching, but I doubt it. If the North Koreans wanted to get revenge on the USA they'd have just stepped back and let SONY release it as planned. The only reason to spend money on this film is to give the finger to Kim Jong-un. I'm not sure that's worth the price.

Woman answers knock at front door...

...and bad guy forces way into house, puts gun to woman's neck, and gets shot. He didn't realize she'd answered the door with her pistol in hand. He didn't live to learn from that mistake. She was unharmed.

A job well done.

In North Carolina, an attempt at home invasion went bad when a 14 year old shot one of two house breakers to death as he attempted to force his way into the house through a rear window. The 14 year old was staying with his grandmother when he heard the stupid gits trying to break in. He got his grandfather's pistol, gave fair warning, then fired three times. The second subject was taken into custody by the police.

I am sorry the 14 year old had to take a life, but it was work well done.

Fortunately, she had a back-up plan

So, in Indiana this guy violated a protective order. The possessor of said order ventilated him with a handgun. He didn't die. Better luck next time.

About what you'd expect.

ASLGVP boasts having 200 members from all 50 states but the group will not release a list of their membership, due to a fear of “political backlash.” So, outside of the eight members that participated in the inaugural press conference, no one knows who is or is not a member of this group. We are not witnessing a “Profiles in Courage” moment here.
So basically they're afraid their constituents will discover they joined an pro gun control group and kick 'em to the curb.

Cowards.

Yeah...pretty much

Pot meet Kettle

That would be The Seattle Times. They have a problem with the NRA steeping in to influence the Washington Legislature to blunt some of 594's provisions. Ya see the NRA is out of state and needs to mind their own business despite having membership living in Washington. Funny they didn't have a problem when Michael Bloomberg, Shannon Watts, Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly were butting in.

Hypocrites. Like that's news.
