I’m getting a bit worried that this could be all I have for today, but things often start out that way, and then something interesting comes along later. But there is news:
From Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court: government can’t fire employees for exercising their right to self-defense.
Miguel notes that the rifle OC folks can stop helping anytime they want. I’m betting Chipotle goes the way of Jack in the Box. If they are going to keep OCing ARs into Chipotle locations to “thank” them, Shannon Watts will be declaring victory by weeks end.
Bloomberg “We need the NRA to be afraid of us.”Â I’m afraid of the former Mayor’s money. He is a great villain.
Wired: How 3D printed guns evolved into serious weapons in just a year. I think that’s overstated. A plastic gun isn’t really that practical. But the technology of 3D printing is advancing quickly.
Armed citizens can defend themselves, even in Nigeria. They captured a tank, according to the article.
“It’s not your grandfather’s NRA,” seems to be meme being pushed by the antis in various media outlets. I mean seriously, who in the world doesn’t know the NRA is heavily involved in politics? We know. Everyone knows. That’s why NRA is powerful. That’s why we’re members.
Also from Joe: “Alan Gura may not be our savior.” I don’t think any one person is. Heller and McDonald were great victories, and we owe Alan Gura a debt of gratitude for winning them. But the foundation for those cases were laid by a number of people.
Why Carry When Hiking? Most people think the four legged critters. The two legged variety is more dangerous. If you’re hiking, you’re not getting law enforcement help except to recover the body. Getting robbed on the trail is very dangerous.
HSUS settles a racketeering suit with Ringling Bros. Circus for a cool 16 million. Unfortunately chump change for them.
I linked to the story about the gun control activist who allegedly was spit on by a pro-gun individual, and thought it smelled like bullshit. I’m glad I’m not the only one. Bob takes a very detailed look and calls shenanigans. It’s not that I don’t think there ugly people on our side, the circumstances are just very improbable to me.
You may have heard of the Heller II case in DC losing at district court. Prince Law Offices takes a detailed look.
