    Prior to 1968, most adults in the United States could purchase a firearm without state interference. Guns were available in local retail stores, as well as mail-order catalogs, and as long as you hadn’t been convicted of a felony and you had the funds, there weren’t any questions asked. Things are different now. Depending on where in America you are and what type of gun you want to buy, there’s a good chance you’ll need to pass a NICS-mandated background check to complete your purchase. Although many people hold a strong opinion for and against gun background checks, they’ve proven...

    AN OnlyFans model wearing just a thong opened fire on two armed burglars who burst through her home. Ansley Pacheco, 26, was captured on home security cameras grabbing her own pistol to defend her son in the raid of her home in Miami. The Instagram model was in the bedroom of her Hileah home on October 4 when two masked men crashed through the door brandishing Uzis and began spraying her husband and his friends with bullets. Shocking footage shows Ansley scramble to grab her firearm before she began shooting at the crooks from her doorway. "Don't shoot! My son...

    At about 1:30 in the morning of 2 January 2019, four people attempted a home invasion/burglary in Yuma County, Arizona. I remember the incident as it was reported. Very few details were given. Four people were shot. The location was not revealed. It was not in the City of Yuma, because the Sheriff department was the responding department. The identity of the defender was not revealed. The firearm or firearms were not identified. Deputies involved were not identified. From foxnews.com, at the time: The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call at approximately 1:38 a.m. Thursday and...

    Ten years before Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the landmark Second Amendment opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller crystallizing the Constitution’s guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right, he was welcoming a young clerk to chambers by the name of Amy Coney Barrett. There were no Second Amendment cases before the Supreme Court that term. In fact, before Heller, the court had not taken up a Second Amendment case since 1939 — and before then, only twice in history, both in the 19th century. The court has decided three Second Amendment cases since Heller...

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)-When researching incidents of firearms used to defend against bears, the surprising deadly potential of the common .22 rimfire cartridge becomes apparent. The most famous incident involving the .22 rimfire cartridge and bears is the 1953 world record grizzly bear. It was collected by Bella Twin of Slave Lake in Alberta Canada. From my article at ammoland.com: On 10 May, 1953, Bella Twin was hunting small game with her...

The suspect, Elmer Manzano, a convicted felon with multiple prior assaults on his record was in custody, detailed just a day before this tragedy occurred.

    Friday, a federal district court judge allowed a lawsuit brought by 21 businesses against the city of Seattle to proceed, despite the city's attempt to have it dismissed. The lawsuit accuses the city of harming local business owners by allowing the existence of Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), a self-declared autonomous zone that was established and occupied by racial justice protestors from June 8 to July 1. The occupied zone blocked all car traffic, reducing the businesses' access to customers, vendors and revenue, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit further alleges that city police largely neglected the zone, allowing protesters and...

    Now the Admin Mods may Zot me or not, but if my words are heard by just one of my FRiends it will have been worthwhile. The stock and trade of the Democrat party is to convince each other that they are smarter than you, or I. This at the core of their beliefs: they are, in their minds, simply smarter. More enlightened. Naturally, they say, a baby should wince and scream, silently, in pain, as the scissors penetrate the neck. This is the celebration of womanhood for so many sad, single lesbians and their cats. Grades in school, of...

Baltimore County Police confirmed on Monday that Douglas Kuhn, 50, was charged with two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault. Police said that two men drove past Kuhn’s yard in Kingsville, Md., on Saturday “with a political campaign sign in the back of their truck while the suspect put up a political campaign sign on his property.” “The...

    In a recent interview with Breitbart News, the American rock star, Ted Nugent sounded off on Joe Biden’s gun control proposals and the power of Michigan hunters as a voting bloc. Biden’s idea to put AR-15s under the National Firearm Act of 1934, which means hunters could be obligated to register their AR-15s with federal authorities, submit their fingerprints and photos, and leave it for an FBI background check, and also they will be required to pay a $200 federal tax on guns they already own. When asked about Biden’s plan, Nugent stated: “Everybody who is paying attention knows that...

    She’s sometimes called the “conservative AOC.” Though it seems too few Republican candidates have learned anything from the success of President Trump’s bold, straight-talking, sometimes combative campaign style that his fans love, Colorado Congressional candidate Lauren Boebert most definitely has. And voters in Colorado’s Third Congressional District are loving it. When famous gunphobe Beto O’Rourke came to Aurora, Colorado last year and proclaimed he would take our guns, this small, pretty dark-haired woman with a Glock pistol in her hip holster stood up and told him, “I’m here to say hell no, you’re not! ” Boebert had driven several hours...

    Ever since the landmark ruling on 3D-printed firearms, outrage and moral panic have surrounded so-called “ghost guns.” Whether you’re a proponent of Second Amendment freedoms or just doing opponent research, it’s important to have the facts about what a ghost gun is and what it is not. It’s also important to know other related terms in the world of firearms – like how is a ghost gun different from a 3D-printed gun? And what is an 80-percent lower? This guide will answer all of your ghost gun questions, and will separate fact from fiction surrounding this polarizing topic.

    I stopped by a large Cabela's over the weekend, and the firearm section surprised me. No AR-15 platform type rifles were evident. And the ammunition section was sparse/bare in the more common calibers. Saw *two* 200 round boxes of .308. I know hunting season is here, but I thought it was unusual. Anyone else seeing similar things elsewhere?

    ATF Pistol Brace Reversal Political Move, 60-Day Suspension of Honey Badger Decision, Photo by @the_official_q. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are unlikely to have acted, as policy, to deliberately hurt President Trump's chances at re-election. This does not mean a faction of individuals inside the ATF did not do so. Several sources have been willing to talk, off the record, about what is going on in the ATF. None are currently inside the agency. None were willing to be quoted. All have had considerable contact with the agency over past years. One source confirmed the...
