Tahqua, corkie the dog will be digging pretty deep into the DC court case and into the 2nd amendment in general. I've talked to corkie about this issue quite a bit and I have to admit that corkie knows more about the legal end of it than anyone else I know. If something does not make sense or you want clarification, or you want more information on something, put it into the comments. That will help corkie with deciding o what to cover in the next post.
Pyro, it is not about me "needing" anyone to say something. It is really about whether there is something that you want to say and that you want recorded. The way I want to run that blog (and really the reason I started it) is more or less in my profile:
I grew up in Russia. While I am not overly fond of that country, it
has certainly left an unmistakable mark on me. One thing that I noticed
is that in Russia people would always have these long conversations
sitting over a kitchen table with a cup of tea. There is something
eminently cozy about kitchens. These conversations went into all sorts
of topics: from politics to sports to literature to you-name-it. A lot
of my friends have similar backgrounds and I notice that despite having
nicely furnished living rooms (we are all middle class professionals
now) we still more often than not tend to sit in the kitchen and talk.
What I noticed is that we often have interesting conversations on topics we know something about. Not just the off-the-wall stuff, but things we have actually looked at and researched to a certain degree. What I also noticed is that we do not retain all of it in our memories. When talking to corkie about 2nd amendment, for example. I retain the gist of it, but not all. If I want details, I have to search for them again. If I want a coherent explanation of something, I have to look at a bunch of sources and put the information together again.
That is really why I did not make this blog about guns and optics. I will have something different for that. Besides, I deal with guns and optics all the time, so I retain that information well. This blog is about everything else: from tea to 2nd Amendment. If you have something to add, your contribution is most welcome.
