  • And here we thought that at least one amendment was still safe from gummint over-reach and thuggery. Sigh. Not so for one abused family in Nevada.
  • Hey, lookee here. Yet another group has sprung up, pretending to be pro-gun but, you know, responsible (unlike the rest of us). This is at least the third in the last 20 years that’s used pro-gun cover to promote the full anti line. Bitter does a magnificent fisking, right down to uncovering their Obama affiliations. (Via Joel)
  • So, you remember those “unsecured” guns the Mounties had to confiscate steal loot protect in a flooded Canadian town? Yeah. Well, guess who “unsecured” them in the first place by breaking into the owners’ houses? That included houses that were neither flooded nor in the flood zone. (H/T MJR)
  • Restore the Fourth. Pix from their Mordor rally. (Love the guy with the porn sign.)
  • Good LRC article by Doug Hornig on protecting online privacy.
  • I can find no updates on this, despite the fact that the outrageous raid struck on Independence Day. Good luck TJIC and Jenny. (Much of the story appears in the comments, where Travis Corcoran (TJIC himself) makes an appearance). It’s ominous to hear nothing in these ‘Netly days. Anybody have later information?

Oh, what the heck. We need some big dogs here, for the good cheer, if nothing else:

    Claire, thanks for helping to spread the latest installment of the TJIC saga.

    I know both Travis and Jenny, and I can’t begin to imagine how much this sucks for them. Trying desperately to get the wife out of the state of mind in which this is OK, something to be grudgingly tolerated in the hopes that they leave you alone, or something that indicates that Travis should be mote quiet so that he isn’t targeted.

    Spoke to Jenn on Friday and got email from Travis yesterday. All is as well as can be under the circumstances.

    Tam — Thank you for the update! At the moment, you seem to be the information pipeline on this for the whole gun world. Every time I look for more information, I find somebody linking back to your original post.

    Mike — Good luck with the wife. 🙁 That’s so grim — so much the attitude for living in a police state.

    Dear AR&PA,
    Get your “but” off my Second Amendment.

    Oh, and running a five-officer battering-ram SWAT raid in broad daylight next door to your target seems like a rather–obvious–way to set up what is supposed to be a clandestine op. We’re really supposed to think these are the folks who can each take out 100 or so gun owners?

    Off the above topics:
    I LOVE big dogs – especially Great Danes. Newfoundlands are special too.

    I once met an Irish Wolfhound when I was a kid and was scared spitless. But he was so gentle and friendly that before we parted company (while visiting some family friends), I wanted to get one. That was nixed in a hurry – we lived in a duplex at the time, with minimal yard space.
