False assumptions will kill you. As Bob noted, "the fastest growing segments of gun ownership are young, urban and female."
H/T to Bob.
The sixty days have expired and not one magazine has been turned in. Not one!

The second in a series but I haven't read the first yet. A political thriller of sorts and the protagonist and a female FBI Agent pursue a murder mystery that turns into much more. Collins is a consistent writer and I can't say I ever read anything by him I didn't like. I liked this. I'll be loading the first in the series onto my Kindle and reading it in the near future. Oh and fair warning, if leftish politics bug you, this may as well.

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which governs these issues, defines “refugee” as someone who has fled from his or her home country and cannot return because he or she has a well-founded fear of persecution on account of “religion” – as well as race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. This certainly doesn’t let us use a religious test to filter otherwise-eligible immigrants out. But it does mean that when we’re deciding who to admit as refugees, religion matters.Not that Obama really cares what the law is if it is contrary to his wants. He doesn't.
So, when we think about religious refugees from the war-torn parts of the Middle East, who are we talking about? Right now Christians who are being singled out for religious persecution – beheadings, beatings, rape, forced conversions, enslavement. So also Yazidis, Mandaeans, and a few other smaller groups. Many Muslims are also displaced and suffering, but the Islamic State is not systematically targeting them for being Islamic. Our refugee policy should take that into consideration. This is not a “religious test.” It is a persecution test.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said Monday that blocking Syrian refugees from entering the United States would impair the ability of police officers to connect with the Muslim community.In what universe does that make any sense? Maybe she is saying if we don't let the Syrians in we'll piss off Muslims and that will put the lives of Law Enforcement at risk? So they are at risk whatever we do. Pissing off radical Muslims is a daily occurrence, and we shouldn't bend over for fear of any specific group. The status quo is preferable to increasing the risk by inviting ISIS in hidden among the refugees.
Clinton, who wants to import thousands of Syrian refugees, told reporters in Reno that it would look bad not to let in Syrian refugees, and that might inflame Muslims against law enforcement.
“If you’re in law enforcement, … you want the people in the communities that you are looking to get information from to feel like they want to help you,” Clinton said at a Nevada roundtable. “And if the message from people who are running for president, for example, is that we don’t want to take any Muslims whatsoever, that’s not good for law enforcement.”
“Let’s not be casting this broad, negative rejection of everybody who might be Muslim. That is not smart to protect ourselves. And I want people to understand — that is a law enforcement issue,” Clinton added.

NRA, Republicans block proposed law to stop suspected terrorists from buying guns in U.S.That's the headline. You can find the story online of you want to read it. I won't link to it. John Richardson provides a summary of the article here and Colion Noir comments below.
Ok, now this is just getting comical. Except it's not funny, it's stupid and slanderous. If there are 2000 suspects on a terror watch list and each of them "legally" bought firearms that means they underwent a FBI background check, which means the FBI knew about each attempted purchase and approved them. This is the dishonest manipulative garbage that anti-gunners engage in and it will only get worse as we get closer to elections. Now ask yourself, why.

For the pacifistic anti-gun dumb asses on the internet who always crop up in the aftermath of any violent event, bitching about imaginary crossfires, or how fighting back would just make things worse. Just shut up already. You’re children, with a child’s grasp of the subject. When people are being mass butchered, barring tossing hand grenades at the bad guy, it is pretty damned hard to make it worse.RTWT

A terrorist attack is a mass shooting and terrorism is "gun violence"? So I guess that makes terrorists gun owners.

Of course, that won't stop him from trying it again somewhere else. If Bloomberg has anything, it's money to piss away.
