    Where there is a will there is a way. Some folks have fashioned weapons from Playstation controllers to explosive devices. Many of these weapons that were home grown is due to their lack of economy but great in innovation to bring the fight. Guess that's why they strap every weapon they have and hope that physics is in a good enough mood today to let them fire knives out of their machine gun. The following are groups in no particular order that were fanatics in their cause while launching their own DIY wrist rockets at each other: Blyskawica Submachine Gun...

    U.S.A. –-( Firearms Policy Coalition has issued the following statement in the wake of another killing of an armed and innocent person by police: On October 12, in Fort Worth, Texas, Atatiana Koquice Jefferson’s neighbor called the police because he saw the door of her home left ajar. A Fort Worth police officer took the call. About 2:20 a.m., without announcing his presence, he began moving around outside Ms. Jefferson’s home, checking windows and making noise.

    Full Header: Police Organizations Torch 2020 Democrat's Gun Confiscation Plan As 'Asinine, Ridiculous, and Likely Unconstitutional' Former Rep. Robert Francis O’Rourke (D-NM) (aka ‘Beto’) is the left-wing blowhard on guns that liberals fear. Why? Well, it’s because he gives up the playbook and he did so on a national stage. You all know about his plan to confiscate so-called scary guns from the hands of the law-abiding citizenry. AR-15 rifles, one of the most popular in the U.S., and AK-47s are the two scary rifles anti-gun liberals want out of the hands of civilians. Only the government can be trusted...

    Another month, another record number of murders in Mexico. For the first nine months of 2019, Mexico had 25,890 murders—almost six times as many murders per 100,000 people as in the U.S. Does Mexico need stricter gun control? No. Its gun laws are among the least permissive in the world. For decades Mexico has had only one gun store in the entire country, a military-run establishment in Mexico City.

    In my last column, I recommended three firearms every man had to own in order to retain his man card. The theme of the column was threefold – 1) Protecting one’s home, 2) Protecting one’s loved ones while away from home, and 3) Raising children with respect for firearms (and, of course, knowledge of responsible firearm use). Since only three essential firearms were recommended, I was bombarded with emails asking me which should follow. I am certainly glad they asked. And I am happy to provide the next three choices needed to advance those three important interests:The Mossberg 500 .410...

Much has been regained through the legislature.

    Presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a liberal who supports banning assault weapons and “raising the minimum wage to $15,” is still “too moderate for today’s Democrats,” sighs David Catron at The American Spectator. Which goes to show that the party has “no chance of beating Trump in 2020.” Unlike Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren’s radicalism, Gabbard’s liberalism is “relatively rational.” She is pro-choice but opposes late-term abortion; worries the “secretive” impeachment investigation will polarize America even further; and refuses to “execute a flip-flop on the withdrawal of troops from Syria,” as other Democrats did. Her campaign is likely to prove...

    They say a Rifle is only as good as its scope but my father never used a scope, did fine and still does fine after all these years. So perhaps choosing a rifle for big game in Alaska, or anywhere else, is really a just matter of choice. I don't pretend to be a rifle expert and don’t want to be. I just know that after spending 20-plus years in the Arctic and successfully hunting pretty much everything that walks the tundra up here, I know what works and has worked for me. So take my observations for what they're...
