Enough for a News Dump?

Thanks to an embroiled Obama Administration, gun news has just about dried up. But there’s still some talk on guns.

Are ‘smart guns’ a smart way to approach gun control? There’s a poll.

Lawyers.com says to expect more 2nd Amendment fights, and outlines some circuit splits.

Forbes does a really good article on how O’Malley’s gun control is anti-business. Anti-gun groups are running ads to praise O’Malley.

Josh Horwitz, Executive Director of Coalition to Stop Gun Ownership, is starting to sound as unhinged as Joan Peterson. Probably because CSGV is increasingly irrelevant. Bloomberg is gun control’s future.

A gun safe monitoring system. Hey, I think I could use this.

The hazards of cheap ARs.

Have you written thank you letters to your Senators? Well, we Pennsylvanians get out of that task, but I like the idea of thanking Beretta. I think I might thank them by buying one of their products.

A lot of folks in Illinois wants to know who is footing the bill for this lobbying effort.

Statistics, they are what’s for dinner when it comes to background checks. Clayton also has a paper out, which I’ve had in my tabs for weeks now, but I haven’t gotten around to reviewing.

I recently added Glenn Reynold’s paper too, but I’ll link that as well, since I shouldn’t kid myself these days about how much time I have to read things that take careful reading.

Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense Bans is going to attempt to pressure a number of companies to treat gun owners like second class citizens. I’ll put Starbucks, Walmart, Cabela’s, Wyndam, and National Car Rental on notice now that I boycott companies that treat me like a pariah.

Cabela’s we probably don’t have to worry about, because they are doing quite well in the Great Obama Gun Panic. Lots of positive articles coming out of Forbes these days.

NY SAFE is looking to be a real cluster as there seems to be no guidance for how to implement it.

Bill Maher is apparently a world class hypocrite. A lot of these celebrities and talking heads are.

Apparently the left doesn’t like the idea that there shouldn’t be any such thing as second class civil rights.

Well, that’s it until next time. As I said, the news cycle is scandal, scandal, and more scandal. And Tornados. But I had more stuff than I thought I did.

    That monitoring system sounds fishy. How does it broadcast a radio signal from inside a steel safe?

    “Josh Horwitz, Executive Director of Coalition to Stop Gun Ownership, is starting to sound as unhinged as Joan Peterson.”

    Starting to? Always has.

    And the comment thread there is a great place for pointing out stupid people and making their heads pop.

    “Smart gun” poll sitting at 88% No to required smart tech.

      Yes. 8%
      No. total 90%
      (45% infrimgement, 44% Failure at wrong time, and 1% Would make guns seem safe)
      No idea where the missing 2% went…….

    Those LGBT posters are just bad.

      Actually, I think the first is effective. It appears to be Oleg Volk’s work. The second one, meh.

      I think they’re great. It points out the obvious that minorities should be the first ones on the self defense train.

      There’s a guy I went to HS with that now, uh, bats for the other team, that is very anti-gun I might not have changed his mind but I at least shut him up by saying “If you’re out and about with your boyfriend and a pack of skinheads wants to play ‘bash the homo’ would you rather be able to defend yourself or have to wait for the police to get there. You of all people should be the last to want to undermine the right to self defense.”

    Except Comcast and Dick’s Sporting Goods has anyone ever even heard of the companies on their ‘Good’ list? I haven’t.

    And sad to say I do for want of any competition that offers the same services in my area grudgingly support Comcast. I don’t like it but don’t have a real choice.

      Square is a company that provides credit/debit card reading service to businesses. I no longer do any business with anyone listed on Sean’s site (ncgunblog dot com) as being Moms Demand Action good list other than Time Warner as they provide my internet access.

      • Zermoid says:

        BTW Our local Walmart (Clearfield) has guns and some ammo in stock, even a 3 AR type guns, altho one is a kids size version, probably 22LR, which they have no ammo for.
        2 full size ones are just over $1,000, if you are nearby and looking for one give them a call for specifics.

    Who would have thought that they needed to defend politicians who supported gun control in Maryland, of all places…after it passed?

    We’ll turn it around. They know they stuck their neck out too far, even in Maryland. This isn’t going to end the way they wanted it to.
