Not having a dog in this particular fight, I can only sit back and laugh at how quickly The Journal News and now Gawker Media are realizing that private American citizens enjoy their… well, privacy. Extra bonus points got to Gawker for labeling all firearm-owning New Yorkers as "Assholes" – way to make friends and influence people, especially in New York.

So late last year, I wrote a post generally defending Red Jacket Firearms and their Discovery Channel television show, “Sons of Guns”, from those who considered it to be less-than-satisfactory.

What was Jeff’s (the weblogger in question) reaction? Well, you can read the entire, sordid timeline here, but suffice to say that numerous restraining orders [...]
