Subtle agenda at work in OH, WA school shooting aftermath

"It hasn’t taken long for agenda-driven groups and their mainstream press enablers to start pushing not-so-subliminal anti-gun messages in the aftermath of Monday’s deadly Ohio school shooting, and last week’s accidental shooting in Washington."

"Yesterday’s Christian Science Monitor coverage of the Ohio shooting is a sterling example of how the press is biased toward the gun prohibition lobby. When the Monitor explored the question of children and firearms, it relied on the observations of only two sources, one with the anti-gun Legal Community Against Violence (LCAV) in San Francisco and the other with the equally anti-gun Center to Prevent Youth Violence (CPYV) in New York City." ...

"Fair warning, I am completely unreasonable on the subject of civil rights. I take exception to this passage in Ben Shotzberger’s analysis of President Obama’s editorial on gun control: 'If—and that’s a big IF—there was a true effort to bring NICS up to speed and get it ‘working,’ wouldn’t that actually be progress in the right direction for all involved?' No, NO, NO! The instant you accept the antis’ premise that 'some people just shouldn't have guns' you have lost." ...

Designed for military use, the fixed four-power (4x) optic is extremely compact for its class and makes mid- and long-range shooting a snap. The benefits of using a fixed-magnification optic are improved clarity, greatly reduced distortion, and brightness." ...

"Although I have been a hand loader since the mid ‘70s, most my loading was overwhelmingly for handguns. Trimming cases isn’t something I gave much thought to until I started shooting in 3-Gun competitions. Sure, I made the most of my hunting ammo, but that was such a small amount of what I was doing that the Lyman trimmer I got with my original reloading kit was more than adequate. I doubt I ever trimmed more than 40 cases at a time or even 100 in a year. But that all changed when I got into 3-Gun . . ." ...

"While British Army Officers first coined the phrase 'sleeve gun' during World War II to describe any weapon designed specifically for assassination purposes, today it is commonly known to be a small firearm held in place by various holster rigs and devices attached to one’s forearm. Sleeve guns are usually meant to be hidden under garments such as long sleeved shirts or coats. Quick draw sleeve guns make use of delivery mechanisms that can take a gun from concealed carry to open carry in less than a second (and give the gizmo a very cinematic air)." ...

Entire armies of business casual CCW license holders have snapped-up the shrunken shooters, entranced by the micro-nines’ combination of lightweight and lethality. Add in the price and availability advantages of 9mm ammunition compared to .380, and the mass market pocket nines are good to stow. Just ask Ruger, whose LC9 is a runaway best-seller.

In this final installment, I address the contemporary status of guns in America. For all the cultural weight and mythology about firearms, the truth is that gun ownership has undergone a long and steady decline. Demographic shifts suggest that in the future, that decline will only continue and perhaps accelerate. ..." ...

"Advocates of an unfettered interpretation of the Second Amendment bristle — and rightly so — at being termed 'gun nuts.' It’s a pejorative phrase often aimed in their direction by those who would unduly restrict the constitutionally delineated right to keep and use firearms."

"One would hope, however, that even the staunchest defenders of gun rights could recognize the aptness of applying that admittedly pejorative appellation to the people who’ve recently been placing telephone calls to state Rep. Ann Purcell, R-Rincon." ...

"So naturally the right-wing media cherry-picked a brief moment where Holder showed somewhat heightened emotions and made that moment the focus of their hearing coverage, saying Holder was 'not able to hold back his emotions,' and describing Holder 'losing his cool' as he 'slammed the table' in response to congressional questioning." ...
