Airline employee smuggles 153 guns through Atlanta to New York

Those arrested moved up to 20 or more guns at a time via Delta flights in the passenger cabin. There are a couple questions you should think about when reading this story. First, why are guns being smuggled to New York? (Hint, it has absolutely nothing to do with restrictive gun laws in New York.) Second, where are the holes in airline security?

Malloy campaign really thinks new gun laws reduced crime?

Total hogwash. I was just reading about Joe Visconti (I) dropping out of the Connecticut governor’s race. He’s asking supporters to vote for Tom Foley (R) to avoid another four years of Gov. D.P. Malloy’s (D) running the state. At the end of the article, the Malloy campaign actually brought guns up.

Good News: Firearm dealers removed from FDIC “high risk” category

This was one of the Obama administration’s attacks on the firearm industry bypassing the normal legislative process. In-other-words, President Obama used his phone and pen to tell the Federal Insurance Deposit Corporation (FDIC) to put firearm dealers on a list of “high risk” businesses banks should avoid. Banking is heavily regulated by the federal government, and if banks wanted to stay “in good graces” with the feds, they were told they should “avoid those high risk businesses” or … well, you may have problems in the future.

30 shot in Chicago over the weekend (so far)

This is terrible. As of 6 p.m. tonight, NBC in Chicago is reporting there have been 30 people shot over the weekend in the windy city. I’m not one to ask “how are those strict Chicago gun laws working for you” for the simple fact it is easy to move firearms from place to place. What I will point out is other cities with populations close to Chicago – I know there is a big difference in population between the Big 5 – have fewer shootings (not necessarily homicides) per capita and less restrictive gun laws.

When gun-grabbing politicians get arrested for gun trafficking

Gotta just love the hypocrisy. This state legislator from San Francisco is tied in with a felon gang member Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, who continued his gang activity behind a “legitimate” facade after getting out of prison. My bet is low-lifes like State Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) taught felons like Shrimp Boy how to look legit, and probably pocketed a lot of cash in the process.

What’s likely to happen to Connecticut residents who did not register magazines and rifles?

There has been a lot of talk and chest thumping concerning the failed implementation of Connecticut’s “assault weapon” and “high-capacity” magazine registration scheme. It seems a significant number of people have ignored the law, and more probably have no idea they were supposed to register their stuff in the first place.
