Some Fine Shooting Down Houston Way

Whatever firearm it was that a Houston homeowner was using to defend himself from 4 thugs, who apparently were invading his home, he did some mighty fine shooting with it (of course the homeowner could have been a she). One of the alleged home invaders was shot and wounded and the other three were shot and died. More at the source.

Me thinks if there was more instant karma type justice of this sort, home invasions and many other violent crimes would be reduced markedly. Enough of it and some criminals might decide to get a real job to make an honest living.

More NY State Gun Control Insanity

NY State must be vying with CA to see which state can come up with the most tyrannically preposterous violations of the RKBA as each state keeps pumping out one oppressive law after the other relative to the RKBA. Take for example this newly proposed law in NY which could be interpreted to mean (and probably was meant to mean) that no one who owns a registered assault weapon in NY can buy more than 20 rounds of ammo for it in a 120 day period. Of course, the way it was written, one easily might interpret that to also mean you could buy 20 rounds per day for it for each of 120 days. Why 20 rounds, well, assault weapons in NY are limited to use only 10 round mags since higher capacity mags are banned. Read the proposed law, you will understand what I mean:
