  • The World’s First Fully 3D Printed Revolver is Here

    Mechanical engineering student James Patrick recently uploaded a video to his YouTube channel showing off the fully functional PM522 Washbear .22LR revolver that he designed and 3D printed. With the exception of the firing pin, a few elastic bands that act as springs and the legally required amount of detectable metal, the entire gun including the body and cylinder is completely 3D printed. This is, to my knowledge, the very first functional repeating firearm ever made entirely (This doesn’t count, it has metal barrel inserts) on a desktop 3D printer. The optional 8 barrel revolver needs metal tubing inserts for...

    Instead of voting to "encumber and bog down the refugee process," Republicans should go along with a Democrat demand to bar people on a secret government list from buying guns, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday. Earnest said the Republican plan to beef up the vetting of refugees will not improve national security: "Again, if Congress were actually interested in doing that, they'd pass a law that would prevent somebody who's on the terror watch list from being able to buy a gun. That's what Congress should do. "And as people are sitting around the Thanksgiving table, talking...

    The North Carolina Supreme Court upheld one of the most basic principles of United States law this month. The law has been under continual attack for the last hundred years, during the rise of the “progressive” state.A great many zoning ordinances around the country are based on “model” legislation that is pushed by central planners. One of the stated premises in the legislation is that anything that is not permitted is forbidden. From a discussion of a previous zoning case in North Carolina:Virtually all zoning ordinances are based on the premise that the ordinance shall list certain land uses...

    A group of 24 Senate Democrats urged the president Monday to dodge Congress and act on his own to make new rules on gun control, after Congress has failed to move any gun bills. The senators, led by Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy of Connecticut, requested the White House take an immediate step to change the law that now allows sellers who do not have a federal license to sell guns to individuals at shows, online and elsewhere without conducting background checks. The letter said Democrats would keep trying to pass a gun bill, but said Obama should explore...

    An elderly couple turned the tables on a career criminal who tried to rob them at their Albuquerque home, holding him at gunpoint until police arrived. Police said the couple caught Aaron Lujan loading their belongings into an SUV that was parked across the street from their home. When Lujan didn't listen to their demands to stop, they retrieved their weapons and drew them on him while neighbors called the police. Police video shows the moments officers arrived on the scene and made the arrest.

    Wolf attacks are extremely rare, less common than mountain lion or bear attacks in North America. It is not hard to understand skepticism about a hunter’s account of a wolf attack where he used a .380 pistol to successfully defend himself, in central Wisconsin. The pistol used was a Walther PK.The Department of Natural Resources investigated. They believed the account, but did not list it as a wolf attack, because there was no injury to the defending human.From americanhunter.org: The first wolf came in from the right, mouth open, fangs ready to rip into Nellesen's leg.

Now, New York Police say they have recovered at least some of the weapons. It was a little more than a week ago when 16 military weapons were stolen from the Lincoln Stoddard Army Reserve Center. Top officials voiced their concerns as the theft came during a time when national security concerns are at a high point.

During the White House press briefing, Press Secretary Josh Earnest continued to press a narrative set up by gun control activists in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris. “As people sitting around the Thanksgiving table talking about these issues as they should and I’m sure they will all across the country, I hope that’s a question that will be raised and asked by members around the table,” Earnest said, referring to a bill...

The entry was captured on Mark Reedy’s security camera, who says police were looking for guns, but the shooting takes place off-frame. The video shows the dog running up to the door as they are trying to break in, yelling “state police … search warrant.” The dog is barking and it’s tail is wagging but as soon as it sees a giant shield enter the home with a gun pointing from behind...

Some of these guidelines includes social media and what 'walk-ins' say, even if government employees are told not to use hunches.So, yes, you might be on a terrorist watch list if you tweet, Facebook, or use other social media sites to post an article someone doesn't like.

Well,he’s getting specific now, and you want to hear this! “The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began.

If you had any doubt about the effectiveness of such plans, the folks in Greensboro, North Carolina were out to prove you wrong this month.

    Democrats want to block terrorists in America from being able to buy guns. At least that's what they say their new measure is all about. The AP reports: Congressional Democrats are trying to build support for an effort to bar gun purchases by terror suspects, hoping to take advantage of the same public anxieties about security that gave Republicans a ringing House victory. The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years.

By contrast, the NRA and its supporters spent less than $600,000. Additional support for the Washington initiative came from other foundations and a short list of billionaire donors, including more than $1 million from Napster co-founder Sean Parker. Similar measures proposed this year in Nevada and Maine suggest more of the same.

When asked why he passed such a broad bill, Brownback offered great rationale: "Kansans soon can carry concealed weapons without permits or training under a bill signed by Gov. Sam Brownback on Thursday. The new law, which kicks in July 1, makes Kansas the sixth state to allow “constitutional carry.” It will allow Kansans 21 and older to carry concealed firearms regardless of whether they have obtained a permit.

Bottom line, if your name appeared on that mysterious list (intentionally or unintentionally due to errors, which routinely occur), then you would be unable to buy a gun.

The Daily News made that absurd claim earlier in the week, and the network of Dan Rather is doing so today. Reality, of course, is something quite different. The National Rifle Association is both a firearms training organization and a civil rights group, and opposes long-running Democrat attempts to...

The open carry push is separate from but simultaneous with a campus carry push moving through the Florida legislature as well. Ironically, this is exactly how open carry and campus carry both succeeded in Texas; they moved through in separate bills but during the same legislative session. Texas became the 45th state to pass laws allowing the open carry of handguns in May, and Abbot signed open carry into...

To meet import regulations a frame mounted trigger safety has been added. It's fairly crisp and positive functioning, but just the same I don't think I'll be using it a lot. Most literature I've read on the TT doesn't recommend carry with a round chambered anyway. The Soviets carried them chamber empty. I'm looking forward to getting some range time with it when possible. I heard they're...

They were greeted by an unlikely hero: a 13-year-old, who takes public classes online at home. When the alleged burglars attempted to enter the property, the boy killed one of them and scared off the other. One of the burglar's guns was identified as a Colt .45, and the weapon the boy used was unreported — except that the gun belongs to his mother, who owns it for self-defense.

    Donald Trump came out in favor of armed defense of the individual and the Country on Wednesday, 18 November, 2015. In an exclusive to Brietbart.com, Donald Trump has called for Americans to bear arms to increase the security of the United States. From Brietbart.com: There are nearly 13 million concealed carry permit holders in the United States who are part of the 100 million gun owners who defend the Constitutional right to "keep and bear arms." This fundamental liberty is held closest by those who have gone through the process of vetting required to be entrusted with the ability...

    The Brady Campaign is a group that actively pushes for gun control regulations under the guise of wanting to keep people safer. Every year they give out awards to high profile people that either donate a lot of money or push through legislation that promotes the restriction of access to guns across the country. This year’s big winner? Hillary Clinton. Conservative commentator Katie Pavlich provided the internet with a great response to this moment of hypocrisy.

    Gun control is a powder keg of an issue anyway, but selecting an individual as spokesman that reasonable people agree should never be allowed to own a gun, only makes the effort more prone to misfire. And that’s exactly what happened in Virginia. Democrats are convinced the next election is always going to be the one where “gun control” pays off. Except it doesn’t: Election after election after election this favorite issue is a dud at the ballot box. Bitter clingers always manage to out-vote eager grabbers. The problem is particularly acute in off–year, nonpresidential elections. Making gun control’s appearance...
  • Chicago children keep being murdered, and politicians keep moving on

    --(snip)--State legislators and aldermen shouldn't move on. Yet they always do: •In the weeks since someone killed Tyshawn, how many Chicago state senators and representatives have you heard pledging to toughen Illinois' light sentences for gun offenders? Two years ago, the legislators' power play blocked a mildly stronger gun-sentences bill that united Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the National Rifle Association as odd-couple supporters. We don't know if that legislation would have protected Tyshawn. We do know that by keeping shooters off the streets longer, and maybe deterring some gun crimes, it would make Chicago safer. Yet Chicago's lawmakers, legislative leaders...

    Impressive, in a way, wasn't it? Not even a full six days after the horrors of the Islamic State terrorist attacks in Paris, and the U.S. House of Representatives acted to combat the threat on our shores. By a vote of 289-137 the lawmakers passed the American Security Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE) Act, a measure calling for enhanced scrutiny of refugees from Iraq and Syria. In a statement, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, explained that "the bill requires the nation's top security officials — the secretary of homeland security, the director of the FBI and the director...

LNP reports the incident happened about 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Griest Building in Lancaster. The caller thought a machine gun was carried into the building, so police conducted a floor-by-floor search only to find the photographer and her tripod.

    Keeping true to the immortal words or gun-control czar Rahm Emanuel, gun-grabbers in the European Union are not going to let a tragedy go to waste. They know that in the wake of the attacks in Paris emotions are at a high and sound reason is at a low creating an ideal environment to ram through comprehensive reforms that further disarm the citizens of Europe.Furthermore, they know that people are looking for something to blame, something to direct their ire at, and they are quick to point to the hardware that millions of good guys use to defend themselves, their...

    Shocking test results for the Armatix iP1 "smart gun" One of the most clever tricks liberals have devised to crater gun ownership in the United States is their insistence that if we can't get rid of guns, we should make everyone own safer and smarter guns. While neither the NRA or most gun owners I know are opposed to the exploration of new technology in firearms, there is a tremendous amount of resistance to government mandates of unproven, expensive and dubious design experiments. One of the big examples of these so called “smart guns” has been the Armatix iP1. Hailed...

    Once upon a time, there was a safe welfare state called Sweden, where people rarely locked their doors. Now, this country is a night-watchman state -- each man is on his own. When the Minister of Justice, Morgan Johansson, encourages breaking the law, it means opening the gates to anarchy. Mr. and Mrs. Swede have every reason to be worried, with the influx of 190,000 unskilled and unemployed migrants expected this year -- equivalent to 2% of Sweden's current population. The number is as if 6.4 million penniless migrants who did not speak English arrived in U.S. in one year,...
