The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Come to Appleseed, and freeze with us

Written By: Bob - Jan• 14•12

When I was still “occupying” Bob’s Gun Counter before consolidating all my blogging here, I made sure to mention that I was a gun enthusiast, and not a gun expert. Even though I write a bit for Shooting Illustrated, I still cringe at being called a “gun writer.” It all implies a level of expertise, competence, and knowledge that I do not think I’ll ever master in such a diverse and expanding field.

I am always on the lookout, however, for chances to learn, and Sean Sorrentino has helped organize a meet-up of gun bloggers and enthusiasts to participate at an Appleseed event on their home range in Ramseur, NC, on March 24-25. So far, I know the following blogs are going to be represented (besides this one):

Others may be signing up as well.

I’ve been meaning to do an Appleseed since I first heard of them a year ago, and finally got a chance to work it into our schedule so that both my wife and I can attend. It promises to be a great learning event for both of us, and I’d invite you to give it a try as well.

Oh… and dress warm.

    United States v. Rehlander (1st Cir. Jan. 13, 2012)

    [Appellants claim] that, given Heller’s pronouncement of an individual constitutional right to possess arms, the ex parte procedures employed under section 3863 may justify temporary hospitalization but not a permanent deprivation of the right to bear arms — permanent given the lack of any meaningful way ever to recapture that right.
    We conclude that this claim is sufficiently powerful that the doctrine of constitutional avoidance requires us to revisit our prior interpretation of section 922(g)(4); and, in doing so, we conclude that section 3863 proceedings do not qualify as a “commitment” for federal purposes
