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.
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.
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.
Chelsea Clinton knows the stakes in this race: â€œIt 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.
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!
