Guess I've got a few more to go. I wasn't sure if I should count MN or not since I only stopped during a layover. :) I didn't do the countries of the world since I've only been to four countries in Europe.
Definitely missing a few. I'll have to come back and add several. So the deal is copy and bold the ones you've seen. Should we delete the ones one didn't like?

There are now 35 "shall issue" states, nine "may issue" states, and two with unrestricted concealed-carry and there has been not one state that has passed concealed-carry legislation in which gun violence went up. But that's the fear that is pushed each and every time another state considers the legislation - "blood in the streets."
Not one. But Wisconsin will be the first?
Kevin is right on as usual. You'd think even the public would laugh every time someone says that and not just Gun Rights Advocates.
Corrected link to Kevin's post. Thanks Kevin. For some reason TypePad doesn't always pickup the correct link.
In a shameful display of misleading the public, Newsday has just told a fib: If the manufacturer or distributor is negligent or otherwise ignores BATF regulations and the law, they CAN BE SUED! Newsday furthers the error with this:
There's much more in Alphecca's post than this of course. But this appears to be typical of the MSM. Half truths and lies. No manufacturer anywhere should be responsible for the misuse of their product. None. Ever.
David Codrea comments on another wild-eyed fanatical attack on the Right to Bear Arms. Again mis-quoting (simply making up) statistics. I saw a movie once that was made in perhaps the 40's that had a young lady that said (paraphrase) "90% of people will believe anything if you provide them a statistic." When asked where she got her statistics she said, "I make them up".
Did you know that 95% of gun-grabbers are of below average intelligence? I swear it might be true..
I really wish there was a chance that someone that is anti-gun would read this article and think "huh, I never thought of that. Criminals don't pay any attention to gun laws". Criminals love living where no one is allowed to carry a gun because the odds are good that he isn't going to get killed. What scares a criminal is the chance that someone is going to fight back with deadly force.
Gun laws will not protect you from crime. But guns will. Duh.
