Notes From the Sidebar

David comments on yet Another Bloodthirsty Gun Owner.  This time it's an armed wheelchair-bound Vet who uses a firearm to defend life and home.

The Bayou Renaissance Man has found some Relics of a long forgotten war.  There are some very interesting images of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Laos.

Let’s talk about background checks. Yes, we really do need to start focusing on potential mandatory background check legislation now that some prominent Republicans are starting to support this type of legislation.

The Old NFO has one example of a pro-gun argument that doesn't rely on "It's in the Constitution!" that effectively makes our point.  More Equal time... delves into the facts about the pre and post Australian gun ban statistics.  One that I found especially interesting is "Australian women are now raped over three times as often as American women."  Disarming the law abiding increases the victim pool for the violent.

Traction Control notes that Michael Bane Points Out “A Brilliant Article …” An excellent read.

Speaking of Michael Bane, the old coot things that The New World Sucks.  Codger keeps reminiscing about the good old days, way back in October of last year.

If you are looking for Sources on Original Second Amendment Meaning, History, Purpose, and Intent, there really is not better place to go than David E. Young's On Second Opinion Blog.

Brigid writes a moving post On Waiting - A Story of Adoption.

The Carteach posts a review of a Dragon Leatherworks Gunbelt..... Next to a quality holster, your belt is an indispensable part of your carry rig.  Quality counts.

Frank, a new contributor to The Firearm Blog, introduces himself with 40 Years of Gun Wisdom in 5 Easy Lessons. I am looking forward to reading more of what Frank has to share.

The LawDog offers A repost of his "Gun Control Cake" essay.  If you did not catch it the first time, head on over and read it now.   

Mike points out that there is a Direct Link Between Algeria Attack that Killed 3 Americans and Libya Attack that Killed 4.  Amateur hour at the State Department and in our Administration is helping to create this escalation of chaos.  A Republican President would have been forced to resign in embarrassment by now.  

Say Uncle refutes Noted Gun Expert Carolyn McCarthy: It’s Too Hard For Women To Use AR-15s.  He has some nice video to help make his case.  

And last, but not least, Murdoc offers a warning about The Stephen King eBook ‘Guns’.  If you want to put money in the pockets of the Brady Bunch, buy the book.
