It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to blog, but a lot has built up in the tabs. I may have a few separate posts in those tabs somewhere, but sometime I just link everything out in the news dump and see what items I have more to say about than I thought. They become separate posts. So here we go:
Another mass knife murder in China. Six dead. Clearly the last one inspired a copycat incident.
Bob Owens notes that three people were arrested for violating a local ordinance on Open Carry in Missouri. Missouri’s preemption statute
is pretty iron clad, so the arrest was completely illegal. Actually, it seems like OC is one exception to MO preemption. Wow. That does need to be fixed.
The NRA notes that the gun control supporters are bound to take advantage of the inflation of causes of death by the UN, which are generally adopted by the CDC.
Also from NRA, they have filed an amicus brief in the NSA spying case.
Governor Malloy in CT: Your side lost. Arrogant prick.
What can metadata reveal about you? Personally, I’m not as concerned if people can find out I’m a gun owner. It’s not really that hard. Just ask the mailman. The concern is if they have a record of what I own.
Jeff also notes that the Wall Street Journal did a hit piece on the gun industry. Of course, what they don’t point out is that unlike cigarettes, the discipline instilled by the shooting sports are good for kids.
Who really designed the AK-47? To be fair, both sides used German scientists and engineers for cold war projects, including our space programs.
Tam: “I’m not making a statement; I just want a sammich” I think it’s the same thing that makes people carry AR-15s in to Starbucks.
Prince Law has more on the Sunnyvale case. That Kennedy didn’t enjoin Sunnyvale is not surprising. My understanding is those kinds of injunctions are very rarely issues. What was surprising is that he asked for a response.
The Daily Caller on the Connecticut situation. I hope they aren’t foolish enough to go door to door. They have the ability if they decide to compile the list.
Good write up on MAIG. Glenn Reynolds notes, “To be fair, not all of them are felons, as far as we know.”
