News Links for Thursday 7/11/13

Been battling on multiple fronts, but none of them are the blog, so here’s all the news that’s fit, or perhaps unfit, to link.

The 2nd Circuit has found that charging more than 300 dollars to get a license to exercise a fundamental constitutional right is just peachy.

Das Iron Glock. I guess they don’t have to be made of plastic. Looks like something someone could make in their garage.

Ruger is opening a plant in North Carolina. Well, it’s not the first time that people have been driven out of New England by religious fanatics, is it?

Meanwhile, Kahr is moving from New York to Pennsylvania. I’d have kept moving south. I’ll feel better about Pennsylvania if Corbett gets a second term, and Kane is a one termer. Until then, I think there’s a danger we’re going blue all over eventually.

Meanwhile, NSSF is filing suit in Connecticut, challenging their new gun control on the grounds that Governor Malloy abused the emergency legislation provision of state law. I’d consider this a long shot. A similar challenge against New York’s intolerable acts hasn’t fared all that well so far.

Speaking of courts not taking rights seriously, the 2nd Circuit court of appeals has found New York’s 300+ dollar permit to be just fine constitutionally. Poor people don’t need rights, or at least not rights that are disapproved of by the blue elite.

The Congressional Black caucus is urging Obama not to back off gun control.

A word of caution to mulsurp lovers out there.

.50 cannon ring.

ABA hears stand your ground testimony in Philadelphia. There’s concern about racial disparity. Everything has to be about race these days. SYG should equally protect people of all races if they are engaged in lawful self-defense. End of debate on that count.

A debate over at Volokh on whether “arms” as in those you keep and bear, means you can keep and bear more than one. Both say yes, but one disagrees it can be arrived at textually. Response to that here. And even more here.

All gun deaths are equally tragic?

The Ms. Magazine train wreck is to the continue. I love all the talk is how we’re bullies. To the gun control advocates, a bully is just someone with better arguments.

You can’t order a sense of perspective off Amazon, but you can go read this.

    So a $340 fee to register to vote is just fine then?
    And of course going through a background check before you vote. Don’t want a felon to vote after all.

    Oh, and then there’s giving the police the power to decide if you have “good cause” to “need” that vote.

    As for worried about PA going Blue. I’d suggest consulting with some of the Illinois state organizations. They’ve done some amazing work in a state with consistent Dem majorities and control. (Even before the court ruling they could get majorities on Shall issue bills).

  2. “Well, it’s not the first time that people have been driven out of New England by religious fanatics, is it?” – Definitely the comment of the day!

    And we very happy to have Ruger coming to NC.

    Firefox breaks out all over with warnings on that last site.

    I agree. But it’s not, in fact, about race. The race-baiters and “progressives” don’t give a $#!+ about race anymore. It’s about control and power. It’s about forcing normal people to publicly defend their normal actions, to shame them into conformity with a particular world view. They don’t like Stand-Your-Ground laws, but they don’t want people to see the elephant in the room, so they play the race card against SYG. “If you’re not racist, you’ll drop your support of SYG; if you don’t drop your support, you must be racist.”

    As always, it’s not about race. Or guns. Or self-defense. Or crime or obesity or childhood health or lung cancer or any of a million other things. It is, and always has been, about control.

    You REALLY need to get over your obsession that ALL Democrats are anti-gun.
