The Court of Appeals opinion is a good one. It sounds like the trial court just wanted to deep six the case.
Glad to be in Arizona. When the California legislature came up with the idea of microstamping firing pins, the objection was made that it'd be very easy to deface or remove the microstamp. The legislature then came up with the brilliant solution to that: require the manufacturer to put a second microstamp inside the handgun (with no requirement that that one do anything). And to think they let those legislators not only walk the street, but also to drive a car.
I just finished "Ready the Cannons," by William Gurstelle, who also has released "Backyard Ballistics" and "Defending Your Castle." "Ready the Cannons" lists a great number of projects, mostly using PVC piping and BBQ igniters. The beverage bottle bazooka (small soda bottle, vapor from rubbing alcohol, and launch tube), a hydro swivel water gun, a carbide cannon (I remember when those were sold in kid's comic books, they made a heck of a blast while not being fixable with a projectile, and so were not legally guns). A potato gun with a 10 foot barrel, to see how high you can fire its load. A device that accelerates ping-pong balls to 300 mph.
Seems like a nice Christmas book (or perhaps one to get early so as to build a few for presents). It and the two other books are available on Amazon.
As Imstapundit asks, is there anything that Trump cannot do?
There has been some thought that gun sales might slump off, but I am skeptical there. I saw an industry study years ago that tried to determine whether the rapidly rising sales were due to fear of then-new president Obama. The study singled out guns that people would think were more vulnerable to restriction -- handguns and "assault rifles" -- and compared their sales trends to general firearm sales trends.
The finding was that after his first election and for, if I remember correctly, three months after, the more vulnerable firearms had a sale surge disproportionate to other firearms, but after that, all firearms began surging. The conclusion was that were seeing some general trend to want more firearms that was not being driven by political fears.
