Sen. Leahy: Bloomberg's gun ads 'Didn't help a bit'
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D Vt., pointed some of the blame for the failed Senate debate over comprehensive background checks at New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who dedicated millions of dollars to eviscerating senators who opposed such legislation."Unfortunately, you have some on the left like the mayor of New York City, who actually didn't help a bit with his ads. He actually turned off some people that we might have gotten for supporters," Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in an interview to air on C SPAN Newsmakers on Sunday.

Virginia: Gun crime drops again as firearm sales soar
Gun related violent crime continues to drop in Virginia as the sales of firearms continue to soar, a pattern that one local criminologist finds interesting "given the current rhetoric about strengthening gun laws."Major gun crime collectively dropped for a fourth consecutive year statewide, while firearms sales climbed to a new record in 2012 with 490,119 guns purchased in 444,844 transactions a 16 percent rise over 2011, according to federally licensed gun dealer sales estimates obtained by the Richmond Times Dispatch.The proliferation of guns occurred as the total number of major reported crimes committed with all types of firearms in Virginia dropped 5 percent, from 4,618 offenses in 2011 to 4,378 last year, according to Virginia State Police data.

New plea for gun rights
The National Rifle Association and two individuals under the age of twenty one have asked the Supreme Court to strike down a federal law that bans licensed gun dealers from selling handguns to minors. A federal appeals court upheld that law, ruling that Congress was justified in believing that easy commercial access to pistols for teenagers leads to violent crime.The new case, NRA v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (docket 13 137), raises one of the broadest challenges to a gun control law to reach the Court in the five years since the Second Amendment was interpreted to protect a personal right to have a gun, at least for self defense.

Patient privacy showdown in Florida
Physicians have no business interrogating patients about their gunsIn the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict, President Obama and other anti gun advocates have called for changing Florida's pro Second Amendment laws. Their chances of getting the "stand your ground" statute overturned are slim, but the anti gun groups are making significant progress in the Sunshine State in allowing activist doctors to push their agenda to disarm families.A federal appeals court heard oral arguments on July 18 in the case that has become known as "Docs vs. Glocks." The issue before the court is whether a patient's right to privacy and protection from doctors who ask inappropriate political questions about what firearms are in the family home trumps the health care providers' rights to ask and to keep records of whatever they want.
