  • The MAC-10 Was an Over-Hyped Hunk of Junk

    War is Boring ^ | May 2, 2016 | Darien Cavanaugh
    For roughly a 20-year period from the mid-1970s to the mid-'90s the MAC-10 submachine gun was everywhere. At least that’s what you might think if your only exposure to the weapon is action films and T.V. shows from the era. The compact MAC-10 first registered in America’s collective imagination when John Wayne wielded one with lethal prowess in the 1974 police thriller McQ.

    Question 1 is a waste of taxpayer time and money and would only hamper legal gun transfers while doing nothing to prevent crime or protect public safety. Preserve the strides made in 2015 for gun owners and vote NO on Question 1 this November. Additionally, tell your family, friends and colleagues and get the word out so we can collectively defeat this already vetoed proposal.

    ALERT - The desperate last days of Barack Obama will be marred with gun grabbing and all-out attempt to eliminate the Second Amendment. A word of caution: Obama is working with several governors in his final push to stop the American people from private gun ownership. As you read this memo secret meetings are taking place behind closed doors with Governor Jerry Brown of California and several other key governors in their attempt to create a diabolical plan to extinguish the Second Amendment in their states. Here are the key points of their attack. Outlaw gun stores in every state....

    AShooting Journal ^ | 5/2/2016 | Oleg Volk
    The Samopal vzor 58, or Automatic weapon model 58, was put into Czechoslovak military service in the late 1950s. A very lightweight 7.62×39 carbine with a short-stroke piston action, it was one of the first Czech arms to use the Soviet cartridge instead of the longer native round. Lighter than the AK-47 by 1.3 pounds, it also used alloy magazines that weighed half of the steel AK-47 mags. Although similar in overall size to the AK, the slimmer pistol grip and stock gave it a more dainty look. Besides Czechoslovak army use, the rifle was exported to about 20 countries,...

    You are winning the culture war when the other side accepts your premises.  In the 1950’s, legislatures across the country succumbed to the latest trendy weapons ban.  Switchblade knives.  The trend went so far as to pass a federal ban on the importation and interstate sale of of switchblades, because, at the time, it was widely understood the Constitution forbade the federal government from actually regulating the sale of an item inside of state boundaries.  Seven states, including Arizona, did not enact a switchblade ban.The ban never had any facts or logic to back it up.  It was entirely...

Copyright 2011 JPFO Rabbi BendoryJPFO today launches "The High Capacity Freedom Campaign". First, some background to highlight the hypocrisy and stupidity of a high-capacity magazine ban. Imagine you bought a Glock 17 9mm pistol a year ago. Your purchase was legal and included two 17-round magazines. Now along come Obama and other “common sense” gun-grabbers with a ban on “high capacity” magazines. The result? Based on the so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban of 1994, a federal mandate declares that after a certain date,...

    The restoration of the right to keep and carry weapons continues in Oklahoma.  On 20 April, SB 1159 was sent to Governor Mary Fallin for consideration. The infringement on the carry of weapons had been put into law not long after Oklahoma became a state in 1907, during the early “progressive” era.    There are several sections listed in the 1921 Oklahoma Criminal Code,  pages 523 to 525, published in 1921.  The sections covering the carry of weapons are sections 1798 through 1806.1798 is the state constitutional guarantee of right to keep and bear arms, which then perversely grants...

The violent crime rate also rose by 3.1% in those major cities, lead by increases in Los Angeles, Baltimore, and Charlotte.

    Across the United States, government employees’ right to bear arms while working is being restored.  One of the pernicious erosions of the right to bear arms that occurred over the last 50 years is the right of government employees to bear arms while employed.  At the start of the progressive era, government employees were considered part of the elite, and could bear arms when and where others could not.In the first laws adopted by the new state of Oklahoma, statutes were adopted en masse from other states.  One of them exempted “public officials” from a ban on carrying weapons,...

    The totalitarian temptation is proving too much for the left across America. Daniel Flynn, in his book A Conservative History of the American Left, contrasted the “Freedom Left”, the benign old-fashioned liberals, versus the “Force Left”, the descendants of Marx that malignantly oppose fundamental rights in pursuit of their radical aims. The Force Left has successfully seized control of their movement, and their fundamental transformation is manifesting in current events daily as we watch their struggle for ever more power. The left as a whole has long been hostile to the Second Amendment, but has been divided of the regulatory...

I feel there’s no better rifle to illustrate the industry, innovation, and unbridled optimism of that time than the Armalite AR-10 7.62x51mm select-fire military rifle. Made of aerospace materials, using an advanced operating mechanism, and weighing in at an inadvisably light 7 pounds and change, unloaded, the AR-10 was an exercise in logic of the type best said “we have defeated Germany and Japan, and split the atom, why shouldn’t we do this?”

I have noticed them in three places.  The sign pictured above is at the entrance to a Dallas pediatric center.  I was assisting my daughter in taking her son there for a checkup.  As she also has a 20 day old infant, an extra hand was appreciated.  The weather...

    WASHINGTON — President Obama will use the power of his office to push for adoption of so-called smart gun technology that could eventually limit the use of a firearm to its owner, the White House announced Friday morning. The move is intended to allow Mr. Obama to confront firearms violence in the face of fierce opposition to broader gun control measures. But critics of smart gun technology, including some police officials, are expected to fight a proposal that they see as unproven and an unwarranted restriction on the freedom to use firearms. The initiative was unveiled on the White House...

Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett is slated to preview the announcement for stakeholders on Thursday afternoon. It’s an intensification of...

    A Kalamazoo mother says her daughter has been isolated and bullied all because her father followed the law. As Newschannel 3 reported, the KRESA West Campus was locked down after the father of a 4-year-old legally open carried his gun on campus. Now, the man's wife is speaking out for the first time about the ramifications of that decision. The mother says her daughter refuses to go back to the music class, because she's alone. All of the students have been transferred to another class on a different campus. The mom says her husband just wants to protect his daughter,...

    Target allows men to use the same restrooms as ten-year-old girls and has made it clear that it would prefer law-abiding citizens to enter its stores unarmed. On April 20, Breitbart News reported that Target released a statement in which they equated opening girls’ restrooms to men as part of “equality.” The statement said, “Inclusivity is a core belief at Target. It’s something we celebrate. We stand for equality and equity, and strive to make our guests and team members feel accepted, respected and welcomed in our stores and workplaces every day.”

  • You Need To Know About Tom Perez: Likely Hillary VP Opposes First Amendment

    Could the next president of the United States be neither Clinton, Trump, Cruz, or Kasich ... but Thomas Perez? It’s far more likely than you might think. Even before any candidate definitively secures either party’s presidential nomination, 2016 is looking more and more like 1912 all over again. In that fateful year, Theodore Roosevelt -- after four years of bored retirement -- decided that he wanted to be president again. However, Roosevelt’s handpicked successor William Howard Taft refused to yield. Because of the split, even though the Democrats’ dour, arrogant Woodrow Wilson won fewer popular votes than perennial failed...
  • Poll says Nevadans favor gun control for those on terror watch, no-fly lists(HUH?)

    A new gun control campaign is targeting Nevadans. A group founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, is pushing for new laws that would bar people on the terrorist watch list and the no-fly list from purchasing firearms. However, gun rights and civil rights groups continue to raise concerns about due process over those lists. The group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, said a majority of Nevadans would support a federal law prohibiting people on the FBI’s terrorist watch list or the no-fly list from buying firearms, according to poll results released Tuesday. Public...
  • Poll: 72% of Americans do not support lawsuits against gun manufacturers

    The issue of nuisance lawsuits against gun manufacturers has moved well beyond the courtroom drama playing out with the Sandy Hook families. Bernie Sanders has managed to drive Hillary Clinton further to the left as she seeks lines of attack against the Vermont Senator, coaxing her into calling for the repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) in recent campaign stops. That may serve her purposes in the primary, but how well does such a position play nationally as we look forward to the general election in November? A new survey conducted by Harper Polling indicates...

  • Opposition to "Assault Weapon" Ban at Record High, Support at Record Low

    Image from ABC News The above chart, created by ABC News, illustrates the trajectory of support and opposition for policies promoted by media elites that have no actual basis in fact or logic.  New media allows a significant, underdog, method to distribute facts about the policy.  The chart is a little misleading.  It starts in the middle of 1994, when the elite media control was near its height, and at the end of a blitz of media efforts to push the "Assault Weapon Ban" policy. These sort of policies, that rely on emotion, have to be enacted quickly, before...
