Irish democracy takes hold in the Golden State: California Gun Owners Are Lashing Out Against New Firearms Laws – “Assured that he was not talking to the police, Joe straightened up and declared that he was not planning to register the many weapons he owns that are affected by the new legislation. ‘Do you know how many I’d have to register?’ he asked. Joe, who declined to answer his own question, is one of many California gun owners who are voicing their outrage at a package of new firearms laws signed into law last month by Governor Jerry Brown.”
Shooting outside Raleigh home followed 911 call about ‘hoodlums’ – “After her brief conversation with a dispatcher, the man who made the initial call came on the phone. ‘We have a lot of people outside our house, yelling and shouting profanities,’ he said. ‘I yelled at them, ‘Please leave the premises.’ They were showing a firearm, so I fired a warning shot and, uh, we got somebody that got hit.’” Sometimes you can’t shake your head enough.
Who knew you could do that professionally?
Rocklin gun store owner refuses to remove barriers – “‘If they fine me, the fine’s gonna be far less than it would be if a 3,000-pound vehicle smashing through my building and causing about $50,000 worth of damage,’ Adams said. ‘And then, the effect of all the guns being out on the street.

Tim’s studied the Dems’ talking point manual well: Kaine blasts NRA as ‘shill for the gun manufacturers’ – “‘You can support the Second Amendment, that’s fine, but we ought to be able to have reasonable rules to keep people safe in this country,’ Kaine told an enthusiastic audience at the Progressive National Baptist Convention. Congress is too cowed by the gun lobby group, Kaine said, and by siding with the NRA against gun-control laws is siding against ‘a majority of Americans, a majority of gun owners, a majority of NRA members,’ who support certain gun-control measures opposed by the NRA.” Certain gun control measures. Registration, universal background checks, and a new ‘assault weapons’ ban.
