Monday News Links

Posting will be a bit scarce this week because of the approaching holiday weekend, and my impending office move that will go along with it. But I do have some news links.

Even after Sandy Hook, Maine’s gun laws remain unchanged.

Manchin is upset that Beretta played their hand very well, and made him look like a chump.

Democracy and distrust.

Canadians can sometimes get guns we can’t. Our importation laws are more strict than Canada’s.

Quite a crowd showed up in Colorado for Magpul’s magazine event. The Daily Caller has more.

A British couple freaks out over ammunition in their garden.

New Jersey appeal over permits to carry has a poor result. This is a state court decision, and New Jersey State courts have long been hostile to civilian firearm ownership.

Government at work with guns.

More Illinois towns are preparing for gun control.

Two of Bloomberg’s pet projects are battling each other over Marco Rubio.

SAF is filing a FOIA request for all information in regards to MAIG’s activity with taxpayer money. This should be interesting, but do think they ought to talk to FloridaCarry, who has already done some work in this area.

Keeping the world safe from bottled water, with guns drawn. Even if it was alcohol, guns drawn? Seriously?

    Clicking through to actually read the story about the British couple that freaked out over some ammo ditched in their backyard, it’s amazing these people survive in every day life without calling authorities over every little disruption to their life. It’s also sad that they sent out at least 6 officers and two firetrucks to handle the completely non-threatening situation. They also requested a water search crew to come out for a couple of small backyard ponds that looked to be no more than 2 feet deep. The couple also insists they will be moving out of the house because they no longer feel safe there.

      From what I saw in the article and video, it seems to me that a lot of their panic is driven by ignorance. To put it simply, they called the closest thing to a subject matter expert they knew, and the response they got was “PANIC!” and not “chill the hell out dude, they’re not going to hurt you.”

      The problem here is largely a lack of education.

    We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender…

    Bahahahahaha. What a bunch of little twats they’ve become.

    Outstanding! I salute those ballsy protesters.

    If people are willing to openly defy the law in public the moment it goes into effect and the police just ignore it, that sends a powerful message. I wouldn’t want to be an anti-gun Colorado Democrat up for reelection in 2014!
