Monday News Dump

Covering some important news items that have built up:

Democrats wavering on gun control in the Senate. The Colorado senators are still uncommitted. Uncommitted is a good, at this point. We’ll get a dog and pony show this Wednesday. We’ll see where it goes from here. We still need to keep people in a high state of mobilization, ready to flood phone switches at the Capitol at a moments notice.

Obama off to a bad start on his gun control campaign.

The Chicago Way. Their real fear isn’t guns. Their real fear is that they may have to associate with the kind of people who enjoy them.

Why Interest in firearms is rising? A takedown of the New York Times. Shooting is a fun and enjoyable pastime, like golf. Those of us that participate it, like to spread the cheer, largely because we know if we do not, those that hate us will destroy our quiet enjoyment.

Gun control in Venezuela has been a complete failure. Why is it that Obama wants to replicate this here?

Obama says he’s fired guns before. Pics, or it didn’t happen.

A waiting period for legislation? Silly Professor! Waiting periods are only for the little people.

A myth surrounding the Dick Act is making its way around. Dave Hardy takes it on. I agree with Dave Kopel that these kinds of things aren’t helpful, and for the same reason.

A lot of people have made fun of the NRA wine club, but it seems to be working at pissing off the right kind of people.

We must do something about the media. I don’t subscribe to newspapers or watch TV. Starve the beast!

This piece by David Mamet is well worth your time, and deserves to get spread around.

Had a great time yesterday with all the Eastern PA Friends of the NRA committees at Woods Creek Grill  (which is awesome, try the Elk Chili), near Lickdale, PA. Many thanks to our field rep Kory for setting it all up for us. The two story restaurant was packed to the gills when we all had to be downstairs for the games and prizes.

That’s all the news that’s fit to link, until a few days from now when I once again need to pare down my Safari tabs.

    There are many words that accurately describe firearms and their related sports, but quiet is not one I typically use ^_^.

    (As I’m sure you’re aware, outside the US many look at us funny for our demonization of suppressors, since at least in their more crowded countries they’re considered to be polite vs. eeeevil.)

    The reason that we are in the mess we are in is because the “something” we conservatives have done – to this point – is totally abandon the media (and education, for that matter) to the progressives.

    They have the three legs of the stool covered (propaganda, indoctrination, governance) because we (collectively) don’t think it is worth our time to be involved. Like they say about the lottery, “if you ain’t in it you ain’t gonna win it.”

    If we are going to reverse the liberal trend of this republic we are going to have to out-Alinsky the progressive liberals. And quickly.

    We had the state legislature meeting in CT today, in the wake of Sandy Hook.

    I posted a recap of the hearing:
