I have to say I had an amazing -- and humbling -- experience yesterday at the NRA Youth Hunting Education Challenge (YHEC, which, I might add, I couldn't have passed on a bet. Compasses? Orienteering? Yeah, right. Where's my GPS? Game identification? Is that a poodle?)...I showed up and got literally mobbed by bunches of high schoolers who said SHOOTING GALLERY was their favorite show. How cool is that?
Really cool, I'll tell you.
You probably know Dick Heller has filed yet another lawsuit against Washington D.C.:
In a complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court, Dick Heller and two other plaintiffs allege that the city's new gun regulations still violate rights guaranteed under the Constitution.Gosh, is there an echo in here?
The lawsuit cites the District of Columbia's unusual ban on firearms that carry more than 12 rounds of ammunition, which includes most semiautomatic handguns.
The suit also claims that the city's regulations make it all but impossible for residents to keep a gun ready for immediate self defense in the home.
I'm increasingly worried about the consequences of the high costs of ammo, something I head a lot about the YHEC championships. I'm going to dedicate some SHOOTING GALLERY and DRTV time to .22 caliber alternatives, which I think might be our only salvation until the current war demand lessens.
Whoops! Gotta go get on the toy airplane to Deeeeetroit...and, they're playing ABBA's greatest hits on the muzak!
