DUCKS.ORG From the Archives – When the Model 12 spoke, the mallards fell silent. Two, anyway.

SC – GUN CONTROL – Columbia gun rule would probably be struck down in court, SC attorney general says

A rule the city of Columbia put in place to combat homemade guns likely violates state law and would not stand up in court, South Carolina’s attorney general said in an opinion this week.

NAT’L – GUN SAFETY – Is the United States unusually violent? The answer may surprise you

Beneath our debate about gun violence, there’s an undercurrent assumption many people — particularly gun-rights advocates — seem to cling to: that the United States has more homicides than other industrialized countries not because we have more firearms but because something about our nation makes it culturally more prone to violence. Is it true? In many circles, the notion that overall violent crime in general is higher…

NAT’L – GUN CONTROL – NRA: Trump Administration’s Background-Check Proposal a ‘Non-Starter’

The National Rifle Association on Wednesday called the Trump administration’s proposal to expand background checks for gun buyers a “non-starter.” “This missive is a non-starter with the NRA and our 5 million members because it burdens law-abiding gun owners while ignoring what actually matters: fixing the broken mental health system and the prosecution of violent criminals,” said the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action,…

WV – GUN RIGHTS – Beto O’Rourke can have Joe Manchin’s gun when he pries it from his cold, dead hands

The last of the Blue Dog Democrats in the Senate is not at all amused by 2020 Democratic primary candidate Beto O’Rourke’s proposal to forcibly confiscate AR-15 and AR-15-style rifles.

Joe Manchin tells it, the no-hope 2020 candidate is a bigmouth who is doing more than anyone to add to the perception that the Democratic Party is home to lunatic gun-grabbers….

INT’L – GUN POLITICS – New Liberal gun-control policies coming soon, as firearms lobby gears up for a fight

Gun rights groups in Canada say they’re mobilizing members before the Oct. 21 election.

VA – GUN RUGHTS – How hard-charging Dallas lawyer William Brewer III helped fuel a civil war inside the NRA

When the National Rifle Association needed more legal firepower in New York state last year, the gun rights group brought aboard an unlikely lawyer: a Democrat who had no experience in Second Amendment litigation.
