Oh the Irony, MT Democrat Relies on Gun Law He Vote Down to Get Out of Trouble – “In that session, Bob Bergren was Speaker of the House and voted AGAINST HB 228 on both Second Reading and Third Reading. Now, it appears as if Bergren is relying on the defensive display protection of HB 228 to justify the conduct that landed him in jail, according to the Great Falls Tribune. I carefully offer no opinion about Bergren’s alleged conduct. I trust that the law, as written, will prevail, and that the wheels of justice will work properly.” If they didn’t have double standards they’d have no standards at all.
County Sheriff: Newsom’s Gun Control Makes Us Criminals – “Butte County, California Sheriff Kory Honea says Gavin Newsom’s Proposition 63 would infringe on Second Amendment rights and ‘turn law-abiding citizens into criminals.’ Honea was joined by sheriffs from Shasta and Modoc counties, as well as the California State Sheriff’s Association, all of whom point to problems with Newsom’s proposition.” Yes, well that’s precisely the point.

Time for a Swexit: Swiss tell EU: Hands off veterans’ assault rifles – “The proposed directive, which applies to non-EU member Switzerland only because it is part of Europe’s Schengen open border system, has raised hackles among the Swiss, who resent intervention from Brussels. Christoph Blocher, a leading voice of the Swiss right and a eurosceptic, says Switzerland should consider abandoning Europe’s Schengen system of passport-free travel if the Swiss people rejected the proposed measures in a referendum. Drafted after militants killed scores in attacks in Paris last year, the EU plans on gun control aimed to curb online weapons sales and impose more restrictions on assault weapons.”
First Alabamians, now Hoosiers: Gun licenses in Indiana outpacing last year – “IndyStar analyzed data kept by the Indiana State Police regarding handgun permit holders. In Indiana, residents do not need a permit to buy a gun or to carry a rifle, and permits are not required to go target shooting or to keep guns at home. Permits are needed only to carry handguns in public. In short: the data offer only a limited glimpse into how many Hoosiers are gun owners. The numbers do, though, show a clear increase in the number of Hoosiers who want the option to carry a handgun in public. In the first three months of 2016, the state approved more than 50,000 carry permits, more than half of the total number of permits approved in 2015.”
Yes. Next question: Is Hillary Clinton’s Lead Selling Guns for Smith & Wesson? “At some point, demand for firearms in the U.S. has to reach a saturation point. We haven’t hit that point yet. More than 300 million firearms are already in private hands in this country. But that’s apparently not enough. On Sept. 1, Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. reported a startling 40 percent jump in sales and a doubling of profit for the first quarter of its fiscal year. Chief Executive Officer James Debney credited “strong consumer demand,” as well as Smith & Wesson’s ability to grab more market share.”
And it isn’t just Smith: Record Gun Sales in August – “The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, conducted 1,853,815 checks in August. That’s over 100,000 more checks than the previous record set last August. It is also the 16th month in a row to set a record.”
Shirtless man fires corncobs at neighbor’s house using potato gun – “A Rhode Island man opened fire on his neighbor’s home this week — using corncobs and a homemade potato gun. Jeffrey M. Osella, 50, has been feuding with his neighbor for the past 13 years, police say. Tuesday night, after a yelling argument between the two, Osella loaded corncobs into a PVC pipe potato gun and shot them at his neighbor’s house.” Maybe Farago left the Ocean State too soon.
