The Life-and-Death Cost of Gun Control
from FOX News
Banning guns is in the news. India practically bans guns, but that didnít stop the horrific Muslim terrorist attacks this last week. A football player concerned for his safety violates New York Cityís tough gun control regulations by carrying a concealed handgun, and people call for everything from banning NFL players from carrying guns to demanding that the athlete serve many years in jail. When police canít promise to protect law-abiding citizens such Plaxico Burress or the victims in India, why donít we allow people the right to protect themselves? Unfortunately, bans do more to encourage crime than prevent it. More

ATF Introduces Online Firearms Form to Ease Transactions, Prevent Errors
from the Washington Post
Every year, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives finds thousands of licensed gun dealers in violation of federal law, often for very minor problems. The agency, which conducts about 11,000 inspections a year, says it has come up with a way to eliminate many of those violations before they happen. Instead of filling out the required ATF paperwork by hand, gun buyers and dealers will now be able to complete what officials say is a fail-safe electronic version of the document, known as Form 4473.

Eric Holder on Firearms Policy
from The Volokh Conspiracy
Earlier this year, Eric Holder--along with Janet Reno and several other former officials from the Clinton Department of Justice--co-signed an amicus brief in District of Columbia v. Heller. The brief was filed in support of DC's ban on all handguns, and ban on the use of any firearm for self-defense in the home. The brief argued that the Second Amendment is a "collective" right, not an individual one, and asserted that belief in the collective right had been the consistent policy of the U.S. Department of Justice since the FDR administration. A brief filed by some other former DOJ officials (including several Attorneys General, and Stuart Gerson, who was Acting Attorney General until Janet Reno was confirmed)took issue with the Reno-Holder brief's characterization of DOJ's viewpoint.

Gun Sales Booming Across the Nation
from the Culpeper Star-Exponent
People across the nation are buying guns and ammo by the handful, and reports on the buying surge tend to focus on the election of Barack Obama as the impetus. Obama is expected to run the most anti-gun administration in U.S. history, based on his votes on gun legislation while a U.S. senator. "The Obama election represents the kind of worst-case scenario: somewhere between the end of the world as we know it and the apocalypse," said Michael Banes, a national gun-rights advocate and founder of the National Shooting Sports Foundation Education Program.

How the Decline of Hunting is Changing the Natural Order of Predator and Prey
from Sports Illustrated
Usually when wild animals change their behavior and become more visible to humans, it is because they are diseased or hungry, or they have been drawn out by Dumpsters, dogs or other signs of human development and urban sprawl. These factors explain in part why there have been so many recent sightings of bears on golf courses or in suburban trees, why a herd of bison wandered into the Canadian village of Fort Providence two years ago, why deer have become a traffic hazard throughout the U.S. and why coyotes sometimes show up on Sunset Boulevard. But over the last decade the North American ecosystem has also seen an unanticipated trend upsetting the always delicate relationship between man and wildlife: The hunters have been going away. More

from the Dallas Morning News
The author relearned some valuable deer hunting lessons from Jon-Michael Greaney last weekend. Jon-Michael is 10, and it had been awhile since the author hunted with a 10-year-old. You tend to forget the little things that make deer hunting difficult for young hunters. More
