    Hey everyone, I've been enlisted to be the "Seattle Gun Rights Examiner" and the link hooks you up to my first column.

    Up next, I am likely to take the gloves off on the Obama admin for Eric Holder's remarks yesterday regarding a revival of the ban on so-called "assault weapons."

    I don't know who the folks behind the Examiner are, nor the Gun Rights section in particular, but they have certainly put together a fine stable of columnists!

    Sound choice of words there, Parker.
    It is widely known that I belong in a stable.

    I'm sure it comes from a metaphor to thoroughbreds, doesn't it, and not a reference to beasts of burden?

    :-)

    At any rate, a fine article, and nice for you to have Yet Another Outlet.

    Enjoyed the column.

    Here's my latest:

    Gun owners nationwide have grown weary of being made the scapegoats for crimes committed by career thugs, so it is understandable why resistance to new gun control measures has grown over the years.
    Editorials in typically anti-gun metropolitan newspapers invariably call for stricter controls on law-abiding citizens, perhaps because they have yet to figure out how to hold the real criminals responsible. So, such editorials transfer the “guilt” to the inanimate objects used by these outlaws, erroneously believing that by placing ever-increasing restrictions on firearms and their lawful owners, this will somehow strike a blow against violent crime.

    Another great column.

    Somebody once said (and for all I know it was you, Dave, in some other venue):

    "Every time there's a high-profile shooting, there's a hue and cry from the usual suspects to take more guns away from the people who didn't do it."

    Yeah, that sounds like me....
