    At the Knife Check for President Donald Trump's speech at the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, I noticed that they were getting a few black composite ice scrappers.I asked about them and was told that they were being given away at a booth near the FN display. As I wandered around looking for the black ice scrapers, I noticed the Choate Machine Tool booth.Choate had made a fiberglass reinforced letter opener in the 1980's so I decided to ask them if they knew about the ice scrappers. That is us, they said, and hauled out a bag of ice...

    One of the hits at the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta was the Pyramid Air gun range. It was set up in one of the meeting rooms one level up and not far from the NRA exhibit hall.While I was there, empty spaces on the firing line were filled very quickly.There were 10 stations on line and roughly twice as many air guns available as there were shooting stations.There were young, old, male, female, all sorts of shooters on the line. They seemed to exhibit the same expressions: Intense concentration followed by big grins.A wide variety of air guns were...

    For the last three NRA Annual Meetings, open and concealed carry have been legal and practiced on the premises.  In 2015 it was at Nashville in Tennessee. In 2016, it was at Louisville in Kentucky.  In 2017, it is in Atlanta, Georgia. Today in the press room, there were a few open carriers. From the printing that I noticed here and there, there were a significantly greater number of concealed carriers. I was one of those. The Press room was rather chilly for a Yuma, Arizona resident. I kept my jacket on.  Out on the floor, there were few...

    A Friday press release from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America promised "hundreds" of gun safety advocates would rally with Shannon Watts, Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) in Atlanta, protesting the NRA's "extremist" agenda. As Bob Owens at Bearing Arms reported, the crowd was almost nonexistent. The @MomsDemand / @Everytown protest at #NRAAM2017 is clearly exciting. Security estimates just 75-100 attendees. pic.twitter.com/FvYxtL0sVo — Bob Owens (@bob_owens) April 29, 2017 Unwilling to admit defeat, Watts tweeted a picture designed to show a much larger crowd. Per security at the park, actual count was 75-100. @MomsDemand ALWAYS grossly inflates their actual...
  • Bloomberg's Gun Control Rally Against NRA Fizzles In Atlanta

    Michale Bloomberg's purchased gun control groups Mom's Demand Action and Everytown promised to "confront" the National Rifle Association in Atlanta (GA) during the NRA's Annual Meetings and Exhibits. It was a less than impressive event. According to an officer providing security at the event, Mom's Demand and Everytown brought just 75-100 people to Woodruff Park to "confront" the NRA, at a venue 7/10ths of a mile away from the Annual Meetings. The twinned gun control groups appear to have attempted to pad their numbers by handing out tee shirts to the many homeless people inhabiting the park, though most...

    The NRA Convention is in Atlanta at the end of this week, and Trump is attending. I also know there's little to no chance I'm getting a seat (I'm not a member anyway), so will there be any rallies going on in the area to mark the occasion? The Berkeley videos are fresh on my mind, and I'll be damned if I stand by while Antifa tries to crash the party. Thanks in advance, everybody!

    A man has been arrested on suspicion of intentionally setting a huge fire that brought down part of an elevated interstate highway in Atlanta, a collapse that is expected to complicate traffic for months in one of the nation's most congested cities. Basil Eleby and two other people -- all believed by investigators to be homeless -- have been arrested in connection with Thursday evening's fire under Interstate 85, Jay Florence, deputy insurance and safety fire commissioner, said Friday. Eleby has been charged with first-degree criminal damage to property, Florence said. The other two -- Sophia Bruner and Barry Thomas...

    Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency Thursday night after fire officials extinguished a massive fire on I-85 in Atlanta that led to the collapse of a bridge on the crowded interstate. The bridge on I-85 northbound just south of Ga. 400 near Piedmont Road collapsed about 7 p.m., Atlanta fire spokesman Sgt. Cortez Stafford confirmed. No injuries to motorists or first responders were reported. Officials said they still don't know how long it will take to fix the bridge, but they agree there is no underestimating the headache that awaits commuters. (snip) He said the cause of the...

Prior to the collapse, structural engineers told FOX 5 they were worried about fire melting the metal under the bridge. Witnesses...

    ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta United said Monday it is "taking measures internally" to address an anti-gay chant used by some fans attending the team's first Major League Soccer match. United spokesman Chris Winkler said the team was aware of the chant during Sunday night's 2-1 loss to the New York Red Bulls. In a statement to The Associated Press, the team said the chants "have no place in our matches" and fans participating in those chants will be removed from games.

    A Georgia man and woman cried in court Monday after they were both sentenced to long prison terms for terrorizing a black child’s birthday party with Confederate flags, racial slurs and threats. Jose Ismael Torres and Kayla Rae Norton were convicted earlier this month under a street gang terrorism law for the 2015 harassment in Douglassville, outside Atlanta, and cried in court on Monday. Video footage from the party, little more than a month after Dylann Roof’s Charleston church massacre, shows a parade of trucks roaring by with Confederate battle flags.

Blank himself is Jewish. “I’m troubled by anything directionally in our country that separates people,” Blank told Newsday. “America started without any of us, other than Native American Indians. This country was built on inclusion and diversity, on celebration of those differences, supporting those differences...
