Unwanted Publicity For Thee, But Not For Me: Journal News Refuses to Answer Questions About Gun-Owner List

At JWF, Jeanine Pirro (herself "outed" by the list) goes bananapants on the Journal News (in a good way, I mean).

A reporter she sent to ask questions at the paper's office is turned away by a guard (likely armed); likewise, a probably-armed guard turns the reporter away at the home of the publisher.

Judge Jeanine has been very pissed about this.

I don't think I would ever want her pissed at me.

Yeah.... I'm still trying to figure out how getting Permission from your Government to buy a gun... and in some places keep one (Calif and Assault Weapons) equates with "shall not be infringed".

If we need the Governments permission to USE a RIGHT, is it a RIGHT? (and that does not even consider the 'BEAR' part of the second Amendment).

28 There is a huge "media" debate about releasing a list of pedophiles.

I think there's a large segment (larger than you'd think) of the Left that is pro-pedophile.

And if you think about it, pedophilia is a tough circle to square for them. After all, the poor guys were born that way, whatever are they to do, stop acting on their urges?

50 Here in the DC area Gannett's non-profit, the Freedom Forum, owns the Newseum, which is a museum devoted to the glories of the news industry. A number of years ago the museum was moved from Arlington, where admission was free, to a brand new building 5 blocks from the Capitol,* where adult admission is $21.95. Suffice it to say the Newseum is now losing money hand over fist. Gannett Blog is an interesting read on that subject and other things Gannett Co.

*ABC This Week still broadcasts from the Newseum, I believe.

Walmart has always been very price sensitive on buying and I've seen availability of normal items vary before price increases.

Went to the Corsicana TX gun show yesterday (I love TX business trips. ). I was looking for BX25s, but only two were available in the whole show. Packaged together at $149 for the set.

Too rich for my blood. I got a few 20rd AR mags and a CZ pistol mag. No gouging at all on the CZ mag, and the 20s were $19 apiece. Double the usual prices, but frankly that wasn't too bad, considering some of the prices being demanded nowadays.
