It’s time to get some lunch and hit the paintbrushes for me, while Bitter works the Sunday part of the show. So here’s all the news that’s fit to link:
On the offense in Florida. SayUncle notes we should go on the offensive federally. That would be a great strategy if the Republicans would go along with it, but I don’t give that much possibility. We’re probably going to be very lucky if the Republican Party does not sell us out and helps maintain status quo.
Good question for the antis (and funny).
Idaho bills moving forward. It’s actually surprising how fast we’re moving ahead in a lot of states while our opponents are distracted.
A couple faces a felony rap for sneaking into a movie theater. The gun control folks are naturally fine with this state of affairs, where everything is a felony, because it means fewer people can own guns. Forget ruined lives, we have to look at the big picture, you know. Everyone should read Glenn Reynolds’ “Ham Sandwich Nation: Due Process When Everything is a Crime”
Joe has some thoughts on the Canton police officer incident. Where did he learn that behavior from?
Recalling anti-gun Democrats in Colorado? If this is possible, this is a great bandwagon to jump on if you live there.
The truth about assault weapons and background checks from John Lott.
A bill expanding the stand your ground law is floated in Florida. I’m not really a fan of encouraging warning shots but in terms of fighting off gun control, an offensive move forces your opponents to react. The goal is to come out on top in the legislative fight. When someone else starts a bar fight, any chair will do.
Manufacturers aren’t exactly lining up to produce 7 round magazines. A lot of people in New York are going to have expensive paperweights when all is said and done. There are some firearms out there for which there are no ten round magazines, let alone seven round magazines.
Bad bills are still moving forward in New Mexico. NRA needs phone calls.
The ‘Footlose Fix’. I really wish the GOP would put Glenn Reynolds in charge of their election strategy.
