Sunday's Blog of the Week!

The Ten Ring reports on the wheelchair bound grandmother in NYC that fought back when mugged. She ended up shooting her attacker in the elbow. The article discusses a John Lott editorial and some of the difficulties that we encounter when talking with the anti-gun crowd:

It’s not just a gun banning politician’s impotence at disarming criminals. It’s their visceral and emotional hatred of guns. Lott quotes Bloomberg, “I don't know why people carry guns. Guns kill people.

"This is the hardest thing to deal with when we talk to anti-gunnies, at least for me. Their minds are locked into a form of stasis as they chant their mantra of “guns kill.” They think that anyone who likes to own and shoot guns must be uncivilized and anti-social. They fear the object and hate/fear the gun owner.

The Ten Ring is an excellent firearm related blog. I highly recommend it to folks interested in commentary on the Second Amendment, firearm news and other general firearm information.
