Two bits of good news today

That are worthy of coming off hiatus:

First, the DoD rescinded the new policy that would have severely impacted price & availability of ammunition - expended brass can continue to be sold to ammunition remanufacturers. Thanks to the steadfast Senators from Montana for personally bringing this wrong-headed policy to the right people's attention.

And then, wonder of wonders, 65 Democratic Congressmen signed a delivered a letter to Attorney General Holder (PDF) as a response to his recent comments that he & the Obama administration will seek to impose a new (so-called) "Assault Weapons" ban. Their response? "Don't even think about it." The letter even specifically points out the two main reasons why it was a pointless bill: that it was ineffective in changing anything crime-related, and that (so-called) "assault weapons" are not special in any way vis-a-vis other perfectly legal firearms that are available today, and have been for over 70 years. And guess whose Congressman is on that list? I may not have voted for Rep. Rodriguez in November, but he just got a big pat-on-the-back email from yours truly.
