    As Democrat postmortem sets in and gun control proponents grasp for ways to explain the political beating they took on November 4, the explanation is already evident to voters -- "It's the Second Amendment, stupid." In 1992 James Carville provided a singular focus for the Bill Clinton campaign by quipping, "It's the economy, stupid." The Harvard Institute of Politics reports that this went from being a statement to an "internal audience of campaign workers" to being the way Clinton packaged and sold his presidential campaign. Fast forward 22 years and "It's the Second Amendment, stupid." The Washington Post admitted that...

    Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, not only allows customers and employees to carry guns in the restaurant, they go out of their way to encourage it.

In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated." Guns are carried openly by waitresses and patrons alike.

    A national gun safety organization has set its sights on Minneapolis-based Target to stop gun-rights demonstrations in their stores. The group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense launched a petition on Wednesday. They’re asking Target’s interim CEO John Mulligan to establish a policy to prohibit people from openly carrying guns in its stores. “Already we’ve had several different restaurants say that they will no longer allow some open carry…some guns all together in their establishments,” said Shannon Watts with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense.

    A bill banning the sale of single-shot handguns that can be modified into semi-automatic weapons advanced in the California legislature on Thursday as lawmakers sought to close what the bill's supporters say is a loophole in the state's gun safety laws. Gun control advocates say thousands of weapons are sold in California each year without a required safety feature that indicates when a bullet is in the chamber, endangering children and others who may be shot accidentally. The bill passed the assembly 48-25, and goes to the state senate.

According to the Associated Press , Giffords will push background checks as a way to "make it harder for criminals and the mentally ill to get guns." She will say, "9 out of 10 Americans support background checks." On December 4, Breitbart News reported a CNN poll that showed "50 percent of Americans oppose more gun control," and only "49 percent" support it.

    Scarborough, Maine -- [...] In recent years, many top-selling brands - including the 195-year-old Remington Arms, as well as Bushmaster Firearms and DPMS, leading makers of military-style semiautomatics - have quietly passed into the hands of a single private company. It is called the Freedom Group - and it is the most powerful and mysterious force in the U.S. commercial gun industry today. Never heard of it? You're not alone. Even within gun circles, the Freedom Group is something of an enigma. Its rise has been so swift that it has become the subject of wild speculation and grassy-knoll conspiracy...

    ALBERT EDWARDS: I Just Got Back From America, And Boy, Is It Getting Bad! Joe Weisenthal Nov. 30, 2011, 7:27 AM Hilarious note today from SocGen's ultra-bearish strategist Albert Edwards. Evidently he just got back from the US, and was pretty appalled. I've recently returned from a marketing trip to the U.S. I hadn't quite appreciated how dangerous it is getting out there. We are all becoming familiar with the rise in social tensions in this post-bubble world. But I had not quite appreciated that in this more insecure world we now inhabit, owning a firearm would become so normal....
  • Questioning “No Questions Asked” — Are Gun-Surrender Gimmicks Legal?

    For decades we’ve heard about gun turn-ins—”Gun Buy-Back” programs sponsored by churches, civic groups, and various other misinformed do-gooder organizations. The very name—buy-back—implies that guns belong not to individuals, but to the government, or at least to the people who don’t like guns. The programs have the stated purpose of “getting guns off the street,” which seems to give operators a pass from further scrutiny, even as they offer a tangible good such as a grocery store coupon or gift card in return for a gun, “no questions asked,” much like any other fencing operation. Finally someone has forced the...

    This leaves Illinois as the only state without any legal concealed carry legislation, and a few states that need seriously improved laws(New York, New Jersey, California, Hawaii, and a couple of others). The GOP-controlled Assembly approved the bill on a bipartisan vote of 68-27. The Senate backed the bill last week on a 25-8 vote, and the measure now goes to Walker, who supports it, for his signature. Wisconsin would become the 49th state to legalize the carrying of concealed guns. The legislation would require those who want to carry concealed firearms to obtain permits. It would allow people to...

    Dear Mr. Cain, Many conservatives have been touting your candidacy for president as cause for great hope that they will be able to support someone who understands limited government and freedom. That’s why your answers to Wolf Blitzer’s questions on gun control (see sidebar video player at 3:04 mark) have raised concerns among right to keep and bear arms advocates. Specifically, you affirmed your belief that “states or local government [should] be allowed to control guns.” That's the same "home rule" position advocated by the Brady Campaign. Some in the conservative camp are trying to find excuses for you, telling...

    (Reuters) - A group of Florida physicians filed a federal lawsuit on Monday seeking to overturn a new state law that limits doctors' ability to ask patients about guns in the home. The lawsuit, filed in Miami federal court, says the new law is an unconstitutional ban on physicians' free speech and prevents them from counseling patients on firearm safety.

    The Obama administration is seeking to limit the importation of some shotguns via rulings made by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF.) ATF has issued a “Study on the Importability of Certain Shotguns” which provides the logical underpinnings for a ban of some weapons. In Part 1 we looked at how the ATF defined “sporting purpose” to exclude the popular action and practical shooting sports. In Part 2 we saw how several features that would cause an imported shotgun to be banned are useful in home defense. In Part 3 we looked at how the unconstitutional Gun...
