From the AP on police MRAPs:
For police and sheriff’s departments, which have scooped up 165 of the mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles, or MRAPS, since they became available this summer, the price and the ability to deliver shock and awe while serving warrants or dealing with hostage standoffs was just too good to pass up.

From Denver Post:
Democratic state Sen. Evie Hudak has resigned her seat to forestall a recall effort launched by constituents who sought to oust her from office for her support of gun-control laws passed by lawmakers last spring.
Hudak’s move ends the recall process, as now a Democratic vacancy committee can appoint someone to fill her seat until 2014.
The Second Amendment-based legal challenge is part of a campaign of nationwide litigation filed and supported by a variety of law enforcement officers and associations to confirm that the Second Amendment protects these common standard-capacity magazines for self-defense and sport shooting.

“The U.S.-Iran Talks: Ideology and Necessity is republished with permission of Stratfor.”
By George Friedman
The talks between Iran and the Western powers have ended but have not failed. They will reconvene next week. That in itself is a dramatic change from the past, when such talks invariably began in failure. In my book The Next Decade, I argued that the United States and Iran would move toward strategic alignment, and I think that is what we are seeing take shape. Of course, there is no guarantee that the talks will yield a settlement or that they will evolve into anything more meaningful.

Over at The Truth About Guns they make the argument that if guns were really regulated like cars the anti-gunners would be appalled.
- Car dealers don’t need to be licensed by the federal government. Gun dealers do.
- Car dealers don’t need to keep meticulous records of all transactions under penalty of law. Gun dealers do.
- Cars don’t require registration to own or licensing to operate. Neither do guns.
- Cars can legally be sold across state lines. Selling a gun across state lines is a felony.

- I don’t need to tell the ATF when I take my short wheel-base car to another state. I do need to tell them when I take my SBR hunting rifle.
- Cars aren’t banned just because they look scary. “Assault weapons” are.
- I get a tax credit when I buy certain cars. I don’t get a tax credit for my new hunting rifle.
