    Lock and Load-27

    by

    There’s a drug-addicted monkey on the rampage around Tampa Bay who has eluded authorities for more than a year. Is it time to hit the “go” button on the Second Amendment and call up the militia to serve up a little cowboy justice?

    Even though he’s been shot up with drugs numerous times that hasn’t lead to his capture. Predictably, legions of do-gooders have rallied to his cause and the “Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay” Facebook page has 51,610 fans.

    by

The National Association for Gun Rights recently posted an update on AmmoLand.com that offers brief highlights of several key bills, primarily related to concealed carry proposals. The roundup below provides a sprinkling of news articles from around the country updating the status of other state measures.

    Welcome to New York-12

    by

    This is the image that graced the front of the New York Post today. I have no problem with cops getting their hands on fun toys. This guy is toting an M-4 with a Surefire weapon light and it looks like it is topped off with an Aimpoint sight.

    Snarky Malarky-12

    by

     

    Shelly Strauss Rollison seems like a nice lady. Usually, her views on Alternet.org are reasoned and reasonable. But the first sentence of her March 23 blog, "Another Reason for Gun Control," demonstrates Ms. Rollison —like so many Americans—does not have a reasoned and reasonable view on gun owners' rights since she has no clue what the Second Amendment is.

    "There’s still a lot of debate over what the second amendment (sic) of the US Constitution means with respect to gun ownership," she writes. "I’m of the opinion that the 2nd Amendment (sic) allowed for the formation of armed citizen militias because one of the issues presented in the Declaration of Independence was the billeting of soldiers in the homes of private citizens without their consent. I don’t believe that the founding fathers ever intended for citizens to be privately armed (except for perhaps a hunting rifle) and they certainly never foresaw a period of time when guns would shoot bullets at more than 10-20 per sec as some automatic weapons do."

    UPDATE Marlin Firearms to Close-31

    by

    UPDATE: I just spoke with some officials from The Freedom Group about the fate of Marlin and they told me that while the North Haven, Connecticut, plant is going to be shut down, they will continue to produce Marlin guns in the future.

    Where that's going to happen is still up in the air. I asked whether production will continue in the U.S. and was told that all options were on the table. That said, the company official told me they were going to retain the existing plant's tooling and would give the to-be-laid-off employees the opportunity to apply for work at the new facility, wherever that might be.

    Obama's Health Care And Gun Rights-64

    by

    There's been a great deal of rhetoric about how President Obama's health care bill poses a threat to your Second Amendment rights. Much of the rhetoric has been flimsy, if not downright flatulent. There are good reasons to oppose this mammoth monstrosity, but not because it imperils gun owner's rights.

    Right?

    Maybe. 

    Then again, maybe not.

    Here’s a spot that will make the one-gun-a-month crowd—and the black-guns-are-evil crowd—have kittens. Personally, I think Cartman needs to diversify his collection. [ Click Read Full Post to See the Video ]

    Deluded Dick Daley-10

    by

    Deluded Dick Daley continues to risk fellow Chicagoans' lives by demanding "common-sense gun laws" even as the U.S. Supreme Court ruminates on his city's senseless gun ban – a municipal fiat that disarms law-abiding citizens and throws them to the mercy of wolves.

    Flanked by parents who lost children to gun violence, Chicago's mayor on March 8, called for state new laws to restrict gun sales and stiffen penalties for criminals who use them.

    Silence of the Bam-8

    by

    On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard a historic constitutional gun rights case in McDonald v. City of Chicago. But, as Ken Klukowski notes in his FOXNews.com blog, the White House is not taking a position.

    "Instead, President Obama is hiding under his desk in the Oval Office," he writes. "What a profile in courage."
