Jeff reports on an anti-gun screed in the Chicago Sun-Times. A line I found rather interesting: The social justice types should instead aim their ire at the storefront merchants and dealers who push death in the name of the U.S. Constitution and the National Rifle Association. Storefront merchants and dealers cause gun violence and deaths?
Someone please correct me if I’m wrong but don’t they already do that in the course of an investigation? Is this some new development I missed reading about? Because as you read the story, it sounds like this process is somehow on the cutting-edge, that prior investigative and tracing techniques were operating back in the
The following op-ed piece appears to see our side of the issue. No one step or program can plug every hole in America’s justice system, or its soul. But there are times when a gun in the hands of a potential victim may save a life. Let’s admit — since the murderers, and druggies, and

Today, Mr. Reasoned Discourse talks to us about reasonable gun laws. First off, it’s interesting to note that while there are no comments on this particular entry, the comments limit has already been exceeded? Ah. They’ve turned off the comments. I wonder why? But let’s get back to the post. After quoting Sarah Brady on
Daly City’s mayor speaks up: Daly City Mayor Maggie Gomez said gun control is not the absolute answer to the problems and doesn’t feel banning gun shows should be done. “A criminal will go through any means to get guns,” Gomez said. “People who abide by the law shouldn’t be punished as a result of
Uncle reported on this Richard Cohen op-ed which referred to the “Marshall Dillon Rule”: Marshal Dillon had the same policy for cowboys when they rode into Dodge: They had to surrender their guns. The Marshal Dillon Rule is based on common sense, not to mention the law of averages: The more guns you have, the
Sebastian reports on our friends Down Under wanting more gun control. Seems they can’t get enough of it. Probably stay up into the night dreaming of total prohibition. Wonder if there’s even Gun Ban Porn…? “Oooh, you’re such a big gun banner.” “I banned twenty guns in one day, baby.” “Rowr! Take me now, you
