Guns: Only in New York...
I got wind of this one from some of my fellow bloggers - seems like a New York TV "news" station is getting the vapors over the "antique gun loophole" - that's right, they're up in arms over single shot, muzzleloading, blackpowder rifles (the video is partly hilarious, and also partly disturbing in its portrayal of media stupidity).
It must be noted that this technology has existed for a few hundred years (well, since the Civil War if we're talking about muzzleloaders with percussion caps), so I'm surprised that no one spoke up about this "glaring loophole" until now. I'm pretty sure baseball bats are used in more crimes than muzzleloading rifles, but I guess that doesn't stop reporters from putting on worried faces. Wait'll they figure out composite bows and crossbows are unregulated, too!
The next time some doofus says the Founding Fathers didn't intend for the Second Amendment to cover modern firearms, point them to this story - it seems even 1776-era guns are too dangerous for common folk to possess, at least according to our friends in the media.
