    Over the weekend, San Francisco will lose its last gun store: High Bridge Arms.

    Why? The city has mandated that gun shops hand over information about its customers to the cops.

    "Just the idea of giving that information willingly to the police department, for no real reason, seemed very unreasonable to me." says Steven Alcairo, the general manager of High Bridge Arms. Alcairo notes that the store already complies with all federal and state reporting requirements.

    As if anyone needed another reason not to live in San Fran. What a cesspool of Liberalism.

    Today, Arizona has strong self-defense laws. But, at Arizona State University, a public institution, adult students are barred from carrying handguns, mace, oleoresin capsicum (pepper spray), tazers, stun guns, and any "object or substance designed to (or which would be reasonably expected to) inflict a wound, cause injury, incapacitate, or cause death." Due to a lack of closed-off entrances or magical force fields, it's safe to say that this policy doesn't disarm criminals, only the law-abiding.

    When we ask what a defenseless 120-pound woman should do if attacked, ASU's official answer is "call 911." We respectfully submit that this is unlikely to prevent a student from being victimized.

    The Arizona Constitution says that the right to bear arms shall not be impaired. The United States Constitution says that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. And yet, as an ASU student, this is happening to you every day. This injustice must end. We hope you will join us in calling for the immediate restoration of the right to self-defense at Arizona State University. No more victims.

    I wonder if a class action lawsuit would be the way to go.

    Big Muddy - That's what I'm thinking about the Mizzou debacle... (no hijack intended!)

    The problem, as I see it, with class action is it simply makes the attorneys rich. IMO, if we want things to stick, it has to come from the voters.

    Self Defenseless by John Stossel


    France's guns laws say you may not carry a gun unless police certify that you are "exposed to exceptional risks of harm" to your life. Few people even bother to apply.

    Fortunately, in America, laws in every state now allow adults to carry guns. Some predicted this would lead to more crime, but the opposite happened. Crime is down.

    Yet some towns, such as Chicago, Washington, D.C., and New York City, where I live, still make it nearly impossible for people to legally carry a gun.

    I know because I tried to get a license.

    The arrogance of New York Govt, city and state is beyond the pale. How in the hell any reasonable person can continue to reside in that in that cesspool of a city is beyond me.

    Black Friday breaks record with 185K gun background checks







    More Americans had their backgrounds checked purchasing guns on Black Friday than any day in the on record, according to data released by the FBI this week.

    The National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 185,345 requests on Nov. 27, one of the largest retail sales days in the country.

    "This was an approximate 5% increase over the 175,754 received on Black Friday 2014," wrote Stephen Fischer, the FBI's chief of multimedia productions. "The previous high for receipts were the 177,170 received on 12/21/2012."
    Previous spikes for background checks, conducted before a gun buyer can obtain a firearm, occurred after prominent mass shootings, like in December 2012 in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
    Other Black Friday shopping days in 2014, 2013 and 2012 occupied the FBI's "top 10" list of the most background checks processed in a 24-hour period.
    Since 1998, FBI data shows that the bureau has processed requests for more than 220 million firearm purchases.
    Licensed sellers deny sales to failed background checks based on a variety of factors including criminal backgrounds, domestic violence convictions or restraining orders.
    Friday's purchases came the same day as the mass shooting incident in Colorado Springs that killed three people and injured nine others.

    So how is Lott "discredited"? Barrett says, "He claims his data was lost on his hard drive. Well, go re-create it! He hasn't been able to!" But that's false. Lott's "More Guns, Less Crime" study has been replicated often, including by the National Research Council and even by some critics.

    After a hard-drive crash, Lott did lose data that supported a lesser point: 98 percent of the time, people only need to point a gun at a criminal for him to back down. But Lott did replicate that survey (he got 95 percent, close results for statistical purposes). That data is posted on his group's website and available to anyone who wants it.
