This story from the Hartford Courant is a sensational news item designed to blame the gun – an inanimate object – for someone’s negligence. The Courant is suggesting the gun is the problem. I feel terrible for the man shot, but this is the result of one’s negligence, not the action of an inanimate object.
There has been quite a few people who are confused when it comes to traveling with your firearm by air. This post will review how you should pack your stuff.
I have no issue with law-abiding citizens carrying a firearm to protect themselves and their family.

Contrary to popular belief, you can’t just walk into a gun store and buy a firearm like you would a loaf of bread. At a minimum, you fill out a federally mandated form and a phone call is made to (usually) state authorities to complete a background check.
Where is Mayor Bloomberg? Why is he not putting a stop to the threatening signs referencing shooting people if they are simply in need of shelter, food and water?
