Jacob Sullum at reason.com writes, “Contrary to what Clinton claims, an understanding of the Second Amendment that lets politicians impose whatever gun restrictions strike their fancy, including outright bans, is anything but ‘a nuanced reading.’ Clinton’s deliberately evasive approach to this issue contrasts with the positions taken by the Democratic Party’s platform in the last three presidential elections. In 2012 and 2008, Democrats said, ‘We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans’ Second Amendment right to own and use firearms.” In 2004, they promised to ‘protect Americans’ Second Amendment right to own firearms.'” So is Hillary’s new approach to civil rights the hope or the change? . . .
Smart-gun advocates seek market change – “The group wants members of Congress to encourage federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to engage gun manufacturers on developing smart guns as part of the contracting process.

NFL is investigating Aqib Talib, who may have broken Texas gun law – “Dallas police are saying Talib was the victim of an ‘aggravated assault,’ but Mike Klis of Denver’s 9News wrote earlier this week that Talib told people close to him that he had accidentally shot himself. WFAA in Dallas reported that Talib told police he was with friends in Hamilton Park when the shooting occurred. ‘I heard a single gunshot and fell to the ground,’ Talib told investigators in the full report, obtained by the TV station. ‘Everything was a blur and I was too intoxicated to remember what happened.’”
