Sorry for the dead air, everyone. It's been an insane week and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
It's not that there's been no gun news, what with the State Department looking to update the International Trafficking in Arms Regulations (ITAR) with new restrictions that could stifle free speech online (Sebastian has some excellent coverage here and here, with suggestions for submitting a comment here); or H.R.2710, which would gut the "sporting purpose" language from GCA'68 and NFA'34 and replace it with "lawful purpose" (which is, as Joe Biden puts it, a big friggin' deal); or the guy turning the Dallas, TX, police station into a shooting gallery (someone double-check the "automatic weapon" claim — we've all seen how the press can completely botch that distinction, right?); or a dozen other things. Heck, I even have a movie to review!
It's just life speaking in its Outdoor Voice™.
Thanks for your patience. We'll get the Free Ice Cream Machine back up and running as soon as possible.
