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?

For those of you who keep saying “they are not going to take your guns away”

They will. I’ve had conversations with people who said this to me. “Look, stop hyping this all up. They are not confiscating guns, they just want to limit the selection … you know… you don’t need a 100 round magazine drum.” Yeah, OK.

New York City will embrace the “heavy hand of government”

A statement like that is not optional. You can’t not accept it. You have to capitulate and embrace it when the new mayor of New York City claims he is not a free marketeer, rather he believes in the heavy hand of government. I’m not making this up.

“Mentally troubled” man stabs and kills 4 kids and their mom in New York

Second Amendment advocates will be tempted to start the “we should ban knives” mantra, but that’s not helpful.

New York: Four dead, four wounded by knife-wielding attacker

Another tragedy for the victims of a violent act. Maksim Gelman allegedly used a knife to first kill his stepfather, then drove to an ex-girlfriends house where he killed her mother and the ex-girlfriend. He went on to kill two more and wound at least four others. I realize it’s a cliché now, but why isn’t Mayor Bloomberg calling for more restrictions on the sale of knives?
