Weekly Gun News – Edition 34


I’ve been keeping up with the news this week, it’s just that there isn’t much of it. Note that I am not complaining about this. No sir. I know what happens when I complain about slow news. I am totally fine with slow news. So I will make an attempt to clean out my tabs of items I do have:

California is going to a very bad place, gun rights wise. Any state controlled by Democrats is at grave risk right now.

Study shows no relationship between gun ownership and suicide.

Dog Bites Man: Corruption in NYC regarding permit issuance. More from Dave Hardy on this.

Hillary Clinton talks to Jim Gardner of Action News about how she plans to bring gun control to Pennsylvania. She restates there are “too many guns.”

A World of Their Own: They believe gun control is at a tipping point, and support is at an all time high. No one who lived through the 90s would believe this. Polling shows that this isn’t true, though there’s a recent uptick we ought to be concerned about. Bloomberg’s money is very dangerous to us, and I believe that’s driving the numbers.

President Obama’s legacy: One hundred thousands jobs generated by the firearms industry. That’s probably a better track record of manufacturing job creation than anything else you can name that Obama is responsible for.

ATF is proposing changes to form 4473. Adam Kraut has the run down.

Well, this is comforting: French police say they’ll try to get their response time down to 20 minutes at the next terrorist mass shooting.

Shit like this is why we’re dealing with Trump. Even lefty Vox is starting to understand the politics of condescension is destroying this country.

Charles C.W. Cooke: Civil rights and the Second Amendment.

Constitutional Open Carry has passed both houses in Oklahoma. Right now Oklahoma allows open and concealed carry only with a license.

Campus Carry passes in Tennessee.

Chelsea Clinton knows the stakes in this race: “It matters to me that my mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the Court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control.

When you cite a new study, and then tell me it comes from the VPC, pardon me if I don’t take it seriously. Sugarmann has always been a charlatan, but he used to be a lot less transparently so.

Is full-auto fire practical?

Off Topic:

The problem with socialism is that sooner or later it runs out of other people’s money. But there might be hell to pay before that finally happens.

Glenn Reynolds in USA Today: Make America European Again!

    1. Interesting change regarding the fugitive wording.

      Scenario: A member of the US military stationed in VA gets a summons for reckless driving (speeding) and has a pending court date. Said member goes home on leave sometime before that date. Since reckless driving in VA is considered a misdemeanor, he/she would now technically be considered a fugitive and would be required by law to answer yes to that question?

  1. I’m not sure what the big to do is about the New York situation. I mean, the Sullivan Act was passed to allow only well connected or select individuals the right to own a pistol.

    Corruption and bribery is what drove the Sullivan Act in the first place.

    Looks to me like its working as intended.

  2. “gun violence prevention lobby”

    If support for your cause truly was at an all time high, you wouldn’t have to keep coming up with new and ever more ridiculous names for it.

  3. RE: Is Full Auto Practical?

    I would like to see the test run with silhouette
    targets spaced the same. Also, is that his house in the background?

  4. Thanks for the good writeup. It actually used to be a leisure
    account it. Look complex to far added agreeable from you!
    By the way, how could we keep in touch?
