Every day, readers email The Truth About Guns links to articles for possible blog posts. While I appreciate the links and welcome the editorial submissions, I’ve got to say Uncle. I’ve got 724 messages in my in-box. I can no longer answer every email and Dan and I can’t blog fast enough to keep up. So I’m starting this Instapundit-like feature to provide pre-screened linkage to the best of the gun stories we can’t blog. (Send links to: firstname.lastname@example.org.) Make the jump for today’s Daily Digest. Readers remarks in quotes. As always, thank you for your patience, patronage and passion . . .

And here it is: the NRA’s National School Shield. No details yet. Like any other bureaucratic boondoggle I expect this program to get bogged down big time. I hope I’m wrong.
Is that what you call it? Billboard Pays Tribute To School Shooting Victims @ wbur.org. John Rosenthal, the man paying for the anti-gun agit prop, is the same gun grabber I debated at my local Fox affiliate. I forgot to ask the self-professed gun owner if he has an LTC.
