Steve at The Firearm Blog is reporting that Calico and their helical-feed big magazines is still alive, ticking and updating their product lines. Who knew? I shot a couple of their .22s years back and they were a riot to shoot. I don't know about you, but 100 rounds of 9mm or .40 S&W strikes me as a compelling bedroom gun!
Frank James has the most intelligent article I've ever read on weapons and ammo selection over at Corn, Beans, Spent Brass, an Empty Page and a Deadline. In his pursuit of feral hog apocalypse, Frank says more smart thing about guns and ammo than I recall seeing in ages. Go read the whole article.
Over at the Huffington Press, big city blowhard, Michael "Boom-Boom" Bloomberg is once again demanding that Obama move against gun owners:
In a letter sent earlier this month from his coalition -- Mayors Against Illegal Guns -- Bloomberg comes intriguingly close to assigning blame for ongoing gun violence to the Obama administration. The mayor and his co-signer, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, point to a separate report they sent the administration in early August 2009, which laid out 40 recommendations to "improve enforcement of existing gun laws" that simply required enforcing existing statutes. That report was apparently given only a perfunctory response from the Department of Justice and little tangible political action -- prompting a harsh follow-up letter from Bloomberg and Menino.
"We appreciate the Department's consideration of the report, but this is an urgent matter: further delay will almost certainly result in the needless loss of innocent lives, including many children. Mr. President, the time has come for action," the mayors write. "Over the past six months, approximately 6,000 Americans have been gunned down in intentional acts of violence. The 40 recommendations in our Blueprint, many of which could be enacted immediately, offer the best hope we have for making our country safer over the next six months - and the years ahead."We've blogged about Bloomberg's 40 points before...if you disregard the Constitution it's amazing how many fascist things you can do before breakfast! We need to watch this very closely...the Dems have already fallen on their swords for the White House; they know most of them are toast in November...especially with Obama's numbers still tanking after the passage of the health care monstrosity.
