American gun owners are about to get a very hostile Supreme Court judge: "It has become clear that Elena Kagan, Obama’s most recent Supreme Court nominee, is no friend of gun rights, to say the least. While clerking for Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall in 1987, she wrote the judge that she was “not sympathetic” to a Second Amendment–based challenge to the D.C. gun ban. While serving in the Clinton administration, she wrote a memo that “paved the way for an executive order banning dozens of semiautomatic weapons,” according to the L.A. Times. And National Review has learned that in 1996, Kagan apparently tied the NRA to the KKK — yes, the KKK — while debating the Clinton administration’s position on a bill."

IL: Daley considers other victim disarmament options if gun ban is overturned: "As Chicago awaits a U.S. Supreme Court ruling this month that could overturn its 28-year-old handgun ban, City Hall is considering a host of countermeasures that might set off another round of legal fights with gun advocates. In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Mayor Richard Daley acknowledged an uphill battle against the gun industry, which he described as the most powerful lobby in the United States. Even so, he vowed that in the event residents are allowed to have handguns at home, the city would take steps to ensure that officials can account for the weapons.”

A suggested survival list: "In both the New Orleans and Los Angeles disasters, police protection was non-existent. Lawless gangs quickly took control of the streets, and people were left to either defend themselves or swiftly become the helpless prey of violent marauders. In fact, in New Orleans, some of the policemen actually abandoned their oaths to uphold the law and joined with the criminals, turning their weapons upon the public. Face it, folks: in any kind of disaster, you must be able to defend yourself, or you and your family will be meat for these animals of society that will quickly descend without mercy upon the unprepared, unsuspecting souls around them. This requires that you be armed!”

Home invasions are getting too common — are you prepared?: "Saturday morning in Gatlinburg, a homeowner was shot in the leg by home invaders. The invaders were armed with semiautomatic handguns …. Home invaders don’t call ahead, so it is your responsibility to be prepared when they come calling. In my last article on home invasions, I talked about a selection of handguns that can be used effectively to combat invaders. Long guns, too, can be effectively used. From the simple to the sublime, long guns include everything from a .22 single shot, to the AR-15, to 12 guage shotguns. There is such a large selection of long guns, I will discuss a few with some pros and cons of each type.”
