Congregants took matters into their own hands and rushed toward Minter as quickly as he began to fire the gun, said Muhannad.Brave people and damn good work.
“They all began tussling with him, including the pastor with (Minter)” said the officer. “Then he broke loose and ran out of the church, leaving his car behind. He was caught less than a mile away on J.L. Chestnut Boulevard.”

Federal court strikes down some D.C. gun laws as unconstitutionalKinda qualifies as a mixed blessing, but the lower courts seem to be against us lately and the Supremes don't to hear any gun cases. It may be the best we can hope for from the courts. So, we have to keep the pressure up on our Congresscritters to keep doing the right thing or make 'em pay.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled 2-1 that the city cannot ban gun owners from registering more than one pistol per month or require owners to re-register a gun every three years. The court also invalidated requirements that owners make a personal appearance to register a gun and pass a test about firearms laws.
But the court upheld other parts of the law, such as requiring that so-called long guns -- including rifles and shotguns -- be registered along with handguns. The ruling also allows gun owners to be fingerprinted and photographed, pay certain fees and complete a firearms safety training course.

I've been reading it off and on since it was published. That has nothing to do with the quality of the work. This is good. We get the unvarnished Heinlein. It's an enjoyable read.

This from Mike Vanderboegh just because of the belly laugh.
Fox2Now reported that police want to know why the children were home alone and why the 11-year-old had access to a gun. Police believe the mother bought the gun after prior break-in attempts.Maybe their question should be what would have happened if the eleven-year old hadn't had access to the gun.

I know White mostly from his collaborations with David Weber and assorted other authors. Can't say I've ever really gotten into his solo novels. I've tried but rarely finish them. That being said, I really liked this novel, and will probably give his older titles another chance.

Step one, build the “evidence” that gun control is necessary through clever manipulation of data. Step two, relentlessly expose the American people to such “evidence” through the media. The facts don’t matter. Just keep pushing the lies until they become the new reality. Bloomberg’s The Trace will be the point of the spear in this effort. This is the very definition of a propaganda campaign at its insidious worst.

“Cops across this country are feeling the assault,” Cruz told reporters after a town hall meeting in Milford, New Hampshire. “They’re feeling the assault from the president, from the top on down as we see, whether it’s in Ferguson or Baltimore, the response of senior officials of the president, of the attorney general, is to vilify law enforcement. That is fundamentally wrong, and it is endangering the safety and security of us all.”
