The federal district court judge handling the Second Amendment Foundation's challenge to the District of Columbia's "good reason" concealed carry permit requirement has denied the city's request for an immediate administrative stay of his ruling last week granting a preliminary injunction against further enforcement of the requirement. The District is also seeking a stay pending appeal.Heh.

White House Suggests More Gun Control To Address Surge Of Shootings in Chicago, Baltimore, And New York City...and it's not they can acknowledge the real problem:Democrats in charge.
Also Josh, there isn't a gun control law that was ever passed truly intended to keep guns from the hands of criminals unless you define criminal as law abiding citizen.

Any officers death is a tragedy. But a heart attack, a vehicular accident, or being mauled by a vicious animal are risks of life, not risks of the trade.It's bad enough when the Bloombergians lie there asses off. It's worse when your so called "fair and balanced" friends jump on the prohibitionist band wagon.
Speaking of risks of the trade; as you can see, as of12:30 CDT, 22 May, 2015, there were 12 officers killed by gunfire, one run down by a criminal, and one beaten to death. That is a total of 14 sworn Law enforcement officers killed so far in 2015. That is just under thirty percent of the total.
That is also 20 percent less than the total of officers murdered as of May 22, 2014. Which was less 21 percent less than the number murdered as of 22 May, 2012.
In the long term, the risk an officer faces of being murdered on the job is half of what it was in 1993 – when there were at least 172 million fewer guns in American’s hands.
It is sad that FOX has chosen to promulgate a lie; a lie spread to promote gun bans; when two minutes research would have demonstrated the falsity of the far left agitprop.
GM’s claim is all about copyright and software code, and it’s the same claim John Deere is making about their tractors. The TL;DR version of the argument goes something like this:I'm sure the other manufacturers are looking at this to see what the fallout is. There really needs to be negative fallout that puts GM out of business. What gun owners did to Smith & Wesson, car owners need to do to GM.
Cars work because software tells all the parts how to operate
The software that tells all the parts to operate is customized code
That code is subject to copyright
GM owns the copyright on that code and that software
A modern car cannot run without that software; it is integral to all systems
Therefore, the purchase or use of that car is a licensing agreement
And since it is subject to a licensing agreement, GM is the owner and can allow/disallow certain uses or access.

The title of the feature is All About Small Arms Combat Album. What a difference 30 plus years make 'cuz for some reason I just don't think we'd see Marvel or DC running this feature today.

I damn sure didn’t go to war for this country twice to come home and be told by a bunch of homely chicks with daddy issues, effete literary fops scandalized by the notion of resistance to Third World pathologies, and nimrod sons of politicians playing at journalism what I can and can’t say. And I don’t think most Americans are ready to have everything they speak, write, or think perused for possible hate criminality by these same goose-stepping creeps.RTWT.

I remember buying this comic years ago when it was published by Dark Horse and enjoying it. Now Randall has put the original stories online and is producing new material as well. This is a good thing. Stories are about a female bounty hunter in the future.

Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) has introduced the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2015. The bill unveiled Tuesday would require federally licensed ammunitions dealers to confirm the identity of individuals who arrange to purchase ammunition over the Internet by verifying a photo ID in-person.Unmentioned in the story is the unfair burden it would place on gun owners who don't have a gun store nearby or who use odd calibers of ammunition not available at their local shop. It making life difficult for gun owners by adding to the bureaucratic bullshit we have to go through to exercise a Constitutional right.
With Republican majorities in the House and Senate this should be dead on arrival but go ahead and call your representatives in the House and Senate to let them know where you stand on this. They need to be reminded periodically who put 'em in office.

Here's a diagnostic you can run on yourself. If you think a speaker is "provoking violence" by speaking, then you utterly fail to understand the difference between speech and violence. Violence can often justifiably provoke violence -- assault someone and he has the right to defend himself; assault him with deadly force and he has the right to end your life. But speech cannot justifiably provoke even a slap in the face. This is the law. But more than that, it is a founding principle of this nation.H/T to Miguel.
The wonderful thing about speech, even of the vilest sort, is that it leaves everyone free to engage in more speech. Violence, on the other hand, leaves only the winners free to engage in more violence. And as a recent pair of would be jihadis learned the hard way, that violence thing doesn't always work out quite like you're expecting it to.

The FBI knew one of the gunmen in Sunday’s attack in Texas could be targeting the controversial Mohammad cartoon contest, anti-Islam conference… And they knew it hours before the attack occurred. That comes straight from the FBI director who just moments ago held a closed door meeting with reporters. The FBI put out a bulletin with suspect’s picture before the attack. He said it’s not clear if police in Garland, Texas knew about that bulletin.Issued a bulletin? What I want to know is whether anyone picked up a phone and made a call to local law enforcement. Oh well, it's not like it mattered. Geller's crew had matters well in hand.

Instead, if we're really serious about increasing law enforcement accountability, we should end civil service protections for federal employees, while outlawing public employee unions. We should also abolish governmental immunity for federal, state, and local employees, forcing them to face civil lawsuits for illegal behavior, just as the rest of us must do.Yup.
Instead of centralizing law enforcement, we should promote decentralization, and accountability. Accountability is a good thing. Sharpton should try it some time.
