As you sow, so shall you reap.  MAIG member Gow Field was called out by the NRA in the Lakeland Florida mayoral election.  Mayor Field says he likes the second amendment AND Bloomberg’s money.  As they say in DC, “follow the money”.. and then vote for his challenger Howard Wiggs. http://www.abcactionnews.com/dpp/news/region_polk/lakeland/nra-takes-shot-at-lakeland-mayor-gow-fields-while-endorsing-his-opponent
Gallop poll About 50 percent want stricter gun sales restrictions, and half don’t.  74% oppose banning handguns. The support for gun control is concentrated in four groups- democrats, liberals, non-whites, women.http://www.gallup.com/poll/165563/remains-divided-passing-stricter-gun-laws.aspx
A vote coming up tomorrow in the Wisconsin legislature would allow CCW holders to carry as they drop off their children at school.  It doesn’t look like they have the votes to pass it.  Call your WI legislators. Who knows how long the licensing delay is in Wisconsin? http://www.ammoland.com/2013/10/wisconsin-bill-9-allowing-ccl-holders-to-carry-guns-on-school-grounds-is-up-for-vote/#axzz2jAhDmcuM
Oregon school board allows staff to carry in Mt St Helens schools.  Oregon CCW holders can already carry.  This ends the prohibition of staff carrying on campus. http://abcnews.go.com/US/ore-school-board-votes-staff-pack-heat-school/story?id=20692287

Another firearms importer moves from NY to SC. American Tactical Imports headed south. http://www.wbtw.com/story/23809778/american-tactical-imports-establishing-operations-in-summerville
California passed a preemption law.  Bloomberg funds local anti-gun bills.  It sucks to be Rob Morse living in CA. http://www.nraila.org/legislation/state-legislation/2013/10/california-mayor-bloomberg-pushing-radical-gun-control-measures-in-california-cities-and-counties-%E2%80%93-your-nra-will-fight-back.aspx
A state audit in California found that many courts did NOT notify the California Department of Justice when the court declared an individual mentally incompetent.

New Jersey election- Nov. 5  General Election for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, State Senate and State Assembly and partisan Municipal Elections where June 4 vote totals were not decisive.  NJ2AS has recommended candidates.  http://www.nj2as.com/vote
Pennsylvania court rules that a PA resident MUST have a PA CCW if he carries in PA.  He can NOT use a CCW granted by a reciprocal state. 🙁  http://www.ammoland.com/2013/10/judicial-activism-on-display-in-pennsylvania/#axzz2jAjuuwDQ

Working our way south, the difference between the two Virginia gubernatorial candidates could not be larger.  Bloomberg supports the Democrat.. a LOT.  That gave the Republican my vote.  If you can’t vote for a conservative republican, there is also a pro-gun Libertarian in the race.

Coming Soon, to a Political Theater in Your Neighborhood: The White House is already planning events to use the Dec. 14 anniversary of the Newtown tragedy to push for more gun control. President Obama never lets evidence stand in the way of exploiting tragedies for his political agenda. So he will ignore a leading psychiatrist at the Mayo Clinic who says taking firearms away from mentally ill will not prevent  rare mass shootings. The White House and such groups as New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the Brady Campaign and Organizing for Action have been meeting for a weekly “Gun Violence Table” to coordinate strategy, according to a report in Politico… Dr. Bostick said that the combination of Second Amendment rights, the broken background check system and inability of psychiatrists to predict who will be a mass killer makes taking away firearms a pointless effort. Mr. Obama knows this reality, but he shamefully uses each of these tragic shootings to convince the public that more gun control can make them safer. He should instead respect the victims’ families and leave politics off his schedule on the sad anniversary of Newtown.http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/oct/29/miller-obama-exploit-newtown-anniversary-gun-grabb/?page=all
UNIVERSITY STUDENTS SHOUT NYC POLICE COMMISSIONER OFF STAGE OVER ‘STOP & FRISK’ POLICY – Brown University, I don’t like stop and frisk, (I think it is unconstitutional), but there is something to be said for discussion http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/10/30/university-students-shout-nyc-police-commissioner-off-stage-over-stop-frisk-policy/
From listener Marc
Earlier this month, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) indicted seven people and seized 11,000 pounds of marijuana destined for the midwest states. It also confiscated 30 kilograms of cocaine that was bound for several small towns in Alberta. Investigators say the drugs were ultimately destined for Calgary, where dealers can turn a higher profit than in the United States. http://www.nationalpost.com/m/wp/news/blog.html?b=news.nationalpost.com/2013/09/25/mennonites-linked-to-mexican-cartels-established-cocaine-smuggling-pipeline-near-alberta-border-police
Laura Carno joins us from Colorado.  She posts her videos and interviews at “I am created equal” http://iamcreatedequal.com  Welcome, Laura.
New office holders were sworn in after the recall of two Colorado state senators.  They said they’ll uphold the constitution AND listen to their constituents.
Colorado is restarting the recall effort on Senator Evie Hudak.  During the debate on Colorado gun laws, Hudak told a rape victim, “And yet because this individual was so large, was able to overcome you even with your skills, chances are that if you had had a gun, he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you.”

Colorado self-defense kit.
Hudak is wrong!  Forcing women to be disarmed is the real “war on women”.

Tim Knight and Jennifer Kerns helped with the Colorado recall effort.  They are now helping in California.
The anti-recall legislators in California immediately played the race card.

Hi Paul,
I always clear the chamber of firearms before relinquishing control with one exception. Handguns that I keep in handgun safes throughout my house are in condition 2. I think the benefit outweighs the risk. The safes are anchored so they cant be jostled around and they are always locked.  I can not see how there would ever be a accidental discharge except fire and hopefully the safe will contain that discharge. Thanks for a great show and would like to hear if you guys think there is a  flaw in my thinking.

Appleseed questions
Slings?
Bring a rimfire? Yes!  Bring two 5 round magazines.
You can bring and use an AR.  You’ll have to lift your head and elbow to use a 30 round mag.
