With the latest mass shooting at Fort Hood, there’s obviously going to be a lot of reaction. As I mentioned yesterday, our opponents have a poor track record of exploiting this kind of situation, but surely they will try:
MAIG/MDA’s statement on the Fort Hood shooting. I notice that it appears that John Feinblatt is now the Chairman of MAIG, which I’m guessing means that Bloomberg is now employing him instead of New York City taxpayers. Should have always been that way.
Shocker, Part II: The CEO of GDSI, the smart gun company, isn’t a gun guy. No, I suspect his passion is using government to force his product down people’s throats whether they want it or not.
Comparing murder rates across countries. If you don’t cherry pick your data, there’s no correlation between gun ownership and homicide rates.
Linking Senator Yee’s voting record to campaign donations. More about Yee from Business Insider. From Reason: Why isn’t Leland Yee a household name? Because he’s a Democrat, and the media hates Republicans.
Hot guns fueling gun violence. But I thought that criminals got their guns from gun shows and the internet?
The Drake case, challenging New Jersey’s no-issue concealed carry policy, has been getting some attention from the press.
New Mexico’s requirement that concealed carry permit applicants be US citizens has been struck down. I’m not even sure you need to reach the Second Amendment on that, since I think it’s well-established that kind of discrimination violates equal protection.
Dave Hardy: “Excuse me while I upchuck.” The Arizona Republic thinks we should celebrate the architect of Fast and Furious. Dave also has an update on the Jones testimony about F&F before Congress.
Claire McCaskill would do well to remember she won her last election by extraordinary luck in drawing a hapless opponent. She’s still a leftist serving in a red state that’s just getting redder. Blasting the NRA and singing Vivek Murthy’s praises won’t endear her. This article is bad advice.
Moms Demand Action speak out against preemption in Florida. Know what their end game is. Preemption is a bedrock principle. Gun ownership basically becomes impossible without great legal jeopardy if local communities can infringe on your rights at will.
Bob Costas: still anti gun. Most of us are far more law-abiding, generally, than your average professional athlete. This isn’t about athletes.
Before the Sturmgewehr. A walk through the pre-history of the assault rifle.
Charles Koch, the devil himself, defends himself in The Wall Street Journal.
EPA experimenting on children and unsuspecting. If they were a company, and FDA found out about this, the company would be raided and charged with unapproved human trials, which is a crime.
