The Right Way With Guns: The National Rifle Association Comic Book From 1956 – “Grim and absurdly funny, here’s a rare item from 1956 titled THE RIGHT WAY WITH GUNS! by Capt. Frank Moss and produced by the George A. Pflaum Publishing Company (based in Dayton, Ohio, the company was notable for its Catholic religious weekly newspapers and comic books since 1889) in conjunction with the National Rifle Association. The comic appeared first in Treasure Chest ‘the Pictures Story Magazine For Boys & Girls’, distributed in parochial schools from 1946 to 1972.” Dated? Fair enough. But there’s nothing about the underlying message that doesn’t work just as well today.
North Korea reportedly executes two top officials with anti-aircraft guns – “JoongAng Ilbo reported that Hwang was killed because his policy proposals were seen as a challenge to Kim, while Ri was accused of nodding off during a meeting with the dictator as well as corruption.” Nork ministers may want to pound some Red Bull before those cabinet meetings, no?

According to Shannon, opposing gun control is now officially un-American: Moms Demand Founder: NRA’s Fight Against Gun Control Is an ‘Attack on Americans’ – “It is interesting to note that Watts did not argue with the NRA’s key point, namely, that Clinton plans to use the Supreme Court to go after the Second Amendment. Rather, Watts tried to deflect the NRA’s point with a subtle accusation that an attack on gun control is an ‘attack on Americans.’ It is also interesting to note how she tried to present recently defeated gun controls as ‘lifesaving gun laws.’ But the word ‘lifesaving’ is a difficult one to use when the most prominent gun control push in recent years has revolved around universal background checks.”
(Lefty) mob rule: Lt. Gov. Newsom on Guns and Ammo: “Will of Voters” Should Trump Legislature – “Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom strongly defended his gun and ammunition control ballot measure, Proposition 63, saying it goes “much much further” than the package of gun control bills passed recently by the California legislature and signed by Governor Jerry Brown. ‘The legislature hasn’t acted as it could on gun safety and now the people will have a chance to do so,’ he said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC4’s ‘News Conference’ program.”
Uncertainty rules Indiana’s laws on guns at polling places – “Dr. Jody Madeira of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law said, for the most part, when it comes to enforcing gun laws at polling places, such as stopping armed citizens from engaging voters outside the location or even standing watch as a party poll worker inside, Indiana election authorities are powerless.” And?
Guns in Donald Trump’s America – “Trump’s missive drew widespread condemnation for its opportunism and insensitivity, particularly in the context of Chicago. Shootings in the city surged more than 88 percent in the first three months of 2016 alone. The furor that ensued after the tweet raised an important question: How would Trump’s gun policies affect life for minority and low-income people in cities like Chicago?” ‘In the context of Chicago’, gun laws that keep firearms out of the hands of law abiding citizens — blacks in particular — are deadly.
