  1. I don't rightly care what handgun is in a LEO's holster.
  2. Guys, get over it. It's just the title of a book. Please focus on the topic at hand.

    That's my take on things. I know complacency is counterproductive, but would it kill the NRA to acknowledge we're at least farther from a "sky is falling" scenario these days? ARs are commonly accepted for cripes sake! That said, the President's abrupt shift toward gun control (even if it is just baby steps so far) immediately after reelection is quite ominous. I'm somewhat convinced he did the UN treaty thing right after election night mainly to rattle NRA/RKBA folks as a victory taunt.

    Man, would it kill the editors at Business Week to use a photo that doesn't demonstrate unsafe practices? (sorry, but we always give our own posters here a hard time about this ;)) Nice special edition "Southpaw" Glock, though :D

    Congratulations on being a published author.

    May I ask, who decided Glock is America's gun? Or am I not inferring correctly from the title?

    Interesting. Do you have any links with quotes or proposed legislation or other that support this?

    The folks in what country buy most of the
    worlds's Glocks ? Got to be here. I own seven
    myself. And have almost as many Colts.

    Our leader is letting his party of socialists
    do the dirty work in congress. They keep
    pushing for restrictive gun laws.

    Folks in what country buy most of the world's handguns?

    And I havent seen an upsurge in any restrictions since Obama's election, only expansions. AZ, WI, WY, Nat Parks, DC, etc. Not even after the Gifford shooting.

    Don't see of cops cruising their beat in a CTS, either. Americans buy lots of Toyotas, as well. Glock is still an Austrian firearm.

    There, is the text a little easier to make out now? :scrutiny:

    You rightly mention that the president has not pushed overtly for increased gun control, and I can grudgingly go with "innocent until proven guilty" with regards to any malintent in Fast and Furious, but his two SCOTUS judges clearly have no appreciation for armed citizens and can wreak havoc on gun rights long after our current president has left his post.

    Also, FWIW and only IMO, your article ended awkwardly abrupt...left me looking for page 2. Was it cut off, or simply be your style, as I've not read you work before.

    Disagreements aside, thank you for sharing your article.
