Some housekeeping

A bit of a mixed bag of things I should have taken care of already:

David Codrea
will be on Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk Radio today at 2 PM (Eastern). The topic will apparently be predictions on gun rights politics for 2009 (a somewhat frightening prospect, but no less important for that).

Also (and there’s real time pressure here), if one registers at (a quick, painless process, that doesn’t require one to provide personal or sensitive information), one can help determine what questions will be asked in tomorrow’s debate (1:00 PM Eastern) for the Republican National Committee chairmanship. If you spend two minutes on it, you’re taking your time–there’s that little excuse to not bother. David Codrea asked (HTML code isn’t allowed in the submissions on the RNCDebate website, but I inserted some links in the quote below, for the sake of clarity):

I want an unequivocal statement from each candidate on the right to keep and bear arms. I should note that Mr. Blackwell looks good*, and Mr. Steele’s bizarre advocacy that “society should draw line” about the right to own semiautos** makes him about as acceptable to gun owners as Barack Obama. How about the rest of the field? No equivocation, please! It will be recognized and held against you. * “Gun Rights and Presidential Politics,”, Nov. 26, 2007 ** Washington Post interview Oct 16, 2006

I, being an unapologetic plagiarizer when it suits me, asked pretty much the same thing, and Pistolero has a good question, as well. Time is running out on this, folks, and I hope the importance of it is obvious. By the way, in addition to submitting questions of your own, once you register, you can vote on questions already submitted. “Yes” votes on the three questions linked to above would be greatly appreciated.

Finally, I want to (very belatedly) thank Masters in Criminal Justice (a web resource for those interested in pursuing a career in criminal justice) for including Armed and Safe among their Top 50 Constitutional Law Blogs (#22, in the “Second Amendment” category). I’m not sure how my blog (not bad for a wannabe “3%” blogger) was chosen for that, when so many others were not, but it’s much appreciated.
