    A brother would never shoot me at point-blank range in the face. Never lie in wait to steal my life. Would never sell drugs to my mother. Never poison our community. Not a black man. Not my brother. No brother would allow himself to become the worst enemy of the state of Black America. A brother would never lure a 9-year-old boy from a playground to an alley and execute him to allegedly settle a score with his father. Would never stand over a wounded pregnant woman and pump her body with bullets as she pleads for her life, wounding...

  • Texas Rep Takes a Second Shot at "Constitutional Carry"

    San Antonio Current ^ | Thu, Dec 8, 2016 | Alex Zielinski
    Last session, it was open carry. This session, the statehouse may take on a further-reaching firearm debate: Constitutional carry. Rooted in the Constitution's Second Amendment, “constitutional carry” laws give any U.S. citizen the right to carry a firearm without a license — and is already permitted in 11 states and Puerto Rico. Rep. Jonathan Stickland, R-Bedford, hopes to add Texas to that list. "No Texan should have to pay a fee or take a class to exercise their right to bear arms,” said Stickland, in a statement. Stickland, whose reelection campaign motto is "More freedom, less government," has said permit-less...

    This is for all you 1911 lovers, yes it is poetry in motion when you view the action while the pistol is being fired. Or as another viewer puts it "the blow by at ignition before the bullet leaves the barrel. The shock wave behind the base of the bullet on exit. And the particles of un-burnt propellant after everything else has cleared the chamber". "Ach sooo ! The bullet has indeed left the barrel before the slide starts to move back. I am also impressed that the gun remains strong enough to withstand repeated firing in spite of all...

    In 2016, SB 1736/HB2033 was passed in the Tennessee legislature. The bill was an attempt to hold businesses that chose to ban defensive firearms from their premises responsible for damages. That was a step to far for the Tennessee legislature. The bill was cut back to say that businesses that did not ban firearms would be immune from lawsuit for actions that resulted from their lack of a ban. In Missouri, Representative Schroer has introduced a bill, HB 96, that is very similar to the original HB 2033 in Tennessee. From news-leader.com: The proposal, known as House Bill 96,...

    By nailing the little things — the casual assertiveness, the sharp dress, the impatience for nonsense — her character’s larger transgressions later in the film feel more believable. The same cannot be said for the cause she fights for; gun control advocates spout sub-Daily-Kos silliness, claiming, for example, that Texas regulates sex toys more stringently than guns with a straight face. I think part of the problem is that filmmakers didn’t consult with people heavily involved in the issue in order to see if the film made sense.

    Many people view Texas as an extremely gun friendly state. Texas has been becoming gun friendly, but the image has not been entirely deserved. The Texas Legislature only restored partial open carry rights last year, after banning most open carry for a hundred and thirty years after Reconstruction.  Open carry still requires a permit from the state. The permit fee is $140, putting it out of the reach of many people.  State Representative Jonathan Stickland wants to change that. From caller.com: “It’s time in Texas to restore our Second Amendment rights to their originally intended level,” said state Rep....

    The classic M16A1 was the iconic rifle of the Vietnam War. It was issued to the vast majority of U.S. soldiers during the conflict, and it’s general success in combat led to its continued service in the U.S. armed forces in varied forms over the years. And of course it wasn’t too long before the M16’s popularity translated to the civilian market as well.Luckily, earlier this summer at the 2016 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky, Colt teased the release of a reproduction, semi-auto-only M16A1 that faithfully replicates the look and features of the original, Vietnam-era rifle....

Corporate lawyers are coming to their rescue, donating “tens of millions” of dollars worth of pro-bono work to said groups in order to help fight Trump’s pro-gun push. Teams of corporate lawyers began working for gun controllers in a somewhat unorganized manner after the June 12 Orlando Pulse attack failed to garner any gun control traction. The teams of lawyers were not united, rather, “they worked largely on their own,” the NYT reports. Now they are unifying...

    Ohio State University is still reeling from the attack last week.

Fortunately, a campus police officer was able to shoot the attacker in a record time of less than two minutes. University President Michael Drake took this as evidence that only campus police should be armed on campus. Police are very important, but they virtually always arrive after the attack has occurred and they have an extremely difficult job stopping terrorists —...

    The Los Angeles Times editorial board says the Donald Trump backed, NRA push for nationwide concealed carry reciprocity is bad for public safety, calling it “absurd and dangerous” in a piece published Saturday. Lawmakers have four bills drafted that would make concealed carry reciprocity a federal law allowing gun owners licensed to carry in one state, to be able to carry in any other state. The Times calls it an effort to “dismantle state and local gun-control laws,” driving nationwide concealed carry laws “to the lowest common denominator” by allowing people to get carry permits in states with less...

That bill included permitless or "Consititutional" carry. Originally the bill contained a watered down provision for the exercise of Second Amendment rights at public institutions of higher learning. Current Missouri law allows campus administrations to ban weapons on campus.  All...

Suppressors have been commonly used by sportsmen around the world for decades long before widespread adoption by any military. The United States is the exception, due to irrational regulation. The Marine Corp is in the process of equipping an entire battalion with suppressed small arms. From ameriforce.net: In...

Lilly Klapper, of North Texas, was hunting for whitetail with her dad and brother at the time and had been practicing her shooting for the past two years in preparation for this day. Her father, Cory Klapper, is an avid hunter and decided to get the memorable moment on film.

    Since Hillary has presumably gone to a home for used basilisks, we will perhaps hear less about gun control for a bit. As in, maybe, eight years. The unending drive to outlaw firearms remains fascinating in various ways, first in that it represents a desire for conclusive abandonment of constitutional government. This is far along in other spheres–jury trial, speedy trial, jury of peers, declaration of war, warrantless search. Recently we have had a clear intention by a major party simply to ignore such constitutional provisions as it finds inconvenient. Of course many of their voters couldn’t name two rights...

    Jake Hamby has posted these photographs of a small shop manufactured .50 caliber single shot, scoped rifle.  It was captured from ISIS forces in Iraq. Many on the Internets are disparaging the rifle, characterizing it as a "face bomb" waiting to go off.  Several good views of the rifle are shown in the short Youtube montage below. Link to Youtube It is a mistake to judge a weapon by the exterior finish. Sure, the superb craftsmen at pre-1940 commercial Mauser, or Colt before 1970, are known for their excellent polish and bluing.  If you look at war production, you...
  • Bloomberg has little to show for millions spent on gun control

    If it wasn’t for Michael Bloomberg’s billions, there wouldn’t be much of a gun-control movement. This year, Bloomberg got a background check initiative onto the ballots of Maine and Nevada. He lost in Maine by 4 percent, and won in Nevada by just 0.8 percent. Now, Nevadans won’t be able to privately transfer their firearms without going through a background check. Bloomberg’s initiative only eked out the win in Nevada because of the $20 million spent to support it, amounting to an incredible $35.30 per vote. He outspent his opponents by a factor of three – in Maine, by a...

    TERRYTOWN, LA (WVUE) - Former John Curtis and NFL player Joe McKnight was killed Thursday in a possible road rage shooting at a busy Terrytown intersection, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office said it happened just after 3 p.m. at the corner of Behrman Highway and Holmes Boulevard. Two lanes of the roadway were shut down for several hours following the shooting. Multiple witnesses said a man in an Infiniti sedan pulled the victim from his Audi and shot him multiple times after a verbal altercation. Witnesses said the shooter then waited for police...
  • Despite Predictions, Black Friday Produced Record-Breaking Gun Sales

    12/01/2016 3:18:28 PM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 14 replies
    Media be damned, last Friday’s gun sales exceeded all expectations – retailers included. Despite grim warnings in the weeks leading up to Black Friday, the FBI is reporting their National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) processed 185,713 total background checks on firearm purchase this year. That’s more background checks run on a single day since the system was launched almost two decades ago. NICS numbers are the closest indication of gun sales since they determine whether a prospective buyer is eligible to buy firearms. Before ringing up a sale, cashiers call in a check to the FBI or to...

    When I write about gun control, I generally make two arguments. First, criminals are lawbreakers, so the notion that they will be disarmed because of gun control is a fantasy [1]. Crooks and thugs who really want a gun will always have access [2] to black-market weapons. Second, to the extent that good people obey bad gun-control laws (and hopefully they won’t [3]), that will encourage more criminal activity since bad people will be less worried [4] about armed resistance. These points are common sense, but they doesn’t seem to convince many leftists, who have a religious-type faith that good...

    So, while we understand the heartfelt and strongly-held opinions on both sides of the gun debate, it is with the safety and security of our employees and customers in mind that we respectfully ask people not to bring firearms into our stores, offices or facilities, even in states where it’s permitted by law. Of course, authorized members of law enforcement are an exception.
