    Alan Gura has filed a motion to hold the District of Columbia in contempt for failing to follow Judge Scullin's preliminary injunction in the Wrenn v. D.C.   second amendment case. The  motion is very well written, the logic is clear.  Here is an portion: 7.  Mr. Powers’ experience is particularly troubling. He is a licensed D.C. firearms instructor, who was (finally) allowed to register his handgun.1 There is no question that Powers meets all background check and training requirements. There is no legal basis to deny him a permit. 8.  District law does not provide for this sort of...

    A store owner in Davie took matters into his own hands, tackling a would-be thief outside of his store, and this wasn't your everyday shoplifter. The thief was trying to walk out of the Public Pawn and Gun at 6798 Stirling Road with an assault rifle stuffed down his pants. "By the time he left I noticed a bulge in his pants, so I followed him out," said owner, Kevin Hughes. "I didn't want to have an altercation in the store... too many customers and employees here." Surveillance video shows the 19-year-old suspect, Marlon Alvarez, inspecting the three-foot long firearm...

    As your new president, I am grateful to serve with you to preserve America’s unique freedoms. I first encountered the National Rifle Association as an 11-year-old growing up in Ohio. Mentored by the NRA in the 1950s by men who had a passion for owning firearms and shooting, I learned the true meaning of our Second Amendment. Recently, an old friend and I were remembering those remarkably free times: when “gun control” was not even in the lexicon; when a kid could take a shotgun or rifle to school and stow it in the cloakroom for after-school target practice...
  • Judge Denies Stay, DC 'Forced" to Issue Concealed Permits Now

    05/28/2015 4:41:17 PM PDT · by Plainsman · 14 replies
    On May 28, Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. denied the District of Columbia’s request for an administrative state in the ruling against the “good reason” provision in DC’s concealed carry permitting process. The “good reason” requirement forced residents applying for a concealed carry permit to demonstrate a justification for wanting to carry a gun. Breitbart News previously reported that Judge Scullin ruled against the requirement on May 18, saying it “impinges on Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment right to bear arms.” The administrative stay would have extended the effective date for Scullin’s May 18 ruling, giving the city more time to evaluate...

On Saturday, she perched on the gate of a pickup, showing off the 13-point buck she’d bagged, just minutes after the opening of Wisconsin’s nine-day gun deer hunting season. It would be hard to venture a guess as to which event made Taylor smile more brightly. The pickup holding the big buck was parked in front of the Angie Williams Cox Library in downtown Pardeeville, and Taylor was tickled to share her story with passers-by. She...

    Townhall ^ | May 28, 2015 | Christine Rousselle
    The Maine Senate has passed a "Constitutional Carry" bill with a vote of 21-14. The bill would permit gun owners to legally carry their weapons concealed without a permit. This is the second time in two years that the Senate has considered this type of bill. While the votes were mostly split along party lines, three Democrats sided with the Republicans in voting for the measure. The Senate voted 21-14 to approve the bill, L.D. 652, a heavily lobbied measure that pits gun rights activists against groups seeking more oversight over individuals who carry firearms. Three Democrats joined the Republican...

    Last time we looked at suppressor legality, it was up to 37 of the 50 United States. (They’re banned in DC and all the Territories if memory serves). But that was months ago, so it was time to check again, just in time to learn that Minnesota, which banned suppressors for many years, legalized them, becoming State #40 to allow citizens who comply with the Federal National Firearms Act to own them. Even Minnesota’s anti-gun, anti-2nd-Amendment governor, Mark Dayton, signed the bill. A similar bill is on Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin’s desk. It is a very small change in the...

    A Texas college student filed suit against her school this week, saying her constitutional rights were violated when she was shooed off the quad for displaying a pro-Second Amendment sign. Nicole Sanders, 24, who attends Blinn College, a two-year public college in Brenham, Texas, said she and a classmate at the 18,000-student school were holding signs near the student center in February when they were told to move. Sanders' sign read, “Defend Gun Rights on Campus,” and the other said “LOL,” with President Obama’s logo as the “O.” The pair was trying to attract members for a student group they...

He wanted to stamp it out. But he was getting little help from the central government, or from local law enforcement.  The BBC correspondent was allowed to join a patrol off the coast. ...

    Guns classified by the DOJ as “assault weapons” cannot be bought, sold or transferred in the state unless it is to a licensed dealer. Indeed, even those on the lists will eventually disappear as state law only allows for their dismantling, transfer to law enforcement, or out of state sale by their current owners, forbidding even inheritance to family members.

    The so-called “mainstream” media likes to spin a scary narrative of lawlessness, even of anarchy, when “permitless carry” (sometimes called “constitutional carry”) is brought before a state legislature. When the media does this, whether through ignorance or bias, they’re simply ignoring the facts. For example, Vermont, which has long had permitless carry, has also long had one of the lowest violent crime rates in the nation. States, nevertheless, can still be laboratories of democracy—even with politically incorrect gun laws. That is part of what’s going on with permitless carry. As of this writing, states with some legal form of permitless...

    The Slidefire (and other similar bump-fire stocks) is basically a toy when used form the shoulder. A genuinely fun toy, to be sure, but still a toy. However, I have reason to suspect that when used on a rifle with a bipod and large ammunition capacity it might actually do a good job of duplicating a true light machine gun without the cost and NFA paperwork. (For folks who are not familiar with the concept, the stock allows the action to freely reciprocate in the stock. By holding one’s trigger finger in a set position and pulling the action forward,...

    When asked about the violence yesterday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest suggested more gun control was one of the solutions. “Obviously there’s some common sense things we could do – certainly passage of some gun safety laws in Congress that could keep guns out of the hands of criminals would be one thing that we could do to try to limit the violence,” Earnest said. There's just a few problems with that suggestion. Maryland already has strict gun control laws. In fact, it was just two short years ago that new gun control measures were passed through despite overwhelming...

    I found the photo of Al Shabab marching, presumably somewhere in Somalia, interesting.  It gives a clear look at some of their weaponry.  As an organization that deals in terror, I would expect it to be extremely conscious of the image that it puts forth.   This likely explains the preponderance of  PKM light machine guns in the hands of the four rightward ranks of the front marchers (their right). These are probably the most powerful weapons that are carried on foot by Al Shabab.  I only see those four, and it appears that other troops are equipped with AK...

    In the world of modern firearms which use centerfire cartridges, there are two major types of mechanisms used to trigger the cartridge primer. One uses a hammer and another uses a striker. Therefore, mechanisms that use a hammer are called hammer-fired and the ones that use a striker are called striker fired. As you can guess, each mechanism has its own group of supporters. In today's post, we will study what this all means. In a hammer fired mechanism, the hammer is a heavy piece that is allowed to rotate about a pivot point. When the hammer is cocked, it...

Second, Clinton and the Republicans are engaged in a "race from the center," leaving an opportunity for the sort of centrism that Bloomberg theoretically represents.

    I watch very little TV.  I do not like to corrupt the data flow.  But I happened to be in Las Vegas when my nephew was watching a BBC program on human smugglers in Thailand.  From BBC.com: Manit told us his district had long been used by human traffickers to transfer migrants from boats to trucks. He wanted to stamp it out. But he was getting little help from the central government, or from local law enforcement. The BBC correspondent was allowed to join a patrol off the coast.  In the video, the BBC is not shy about showing...

    Sometimes conservatives seem to be misery junkies. It's like we get a psychic thrill from telling each other that the end of the world is at hand. Admittedly, everything isn't coming up roses. That scent in the air isn't from flowers. But there's still more cause for comfort than despair. "Let not your heart be troubled." Here are seven reasons to hope for America. 1. There's an explosion of conservative activism – According to the latest Gallup poll, 38% of Americans are self-identified conservatives, against only 24% who call themselves liberals, and 34% moderates. Even after six and a half...

    Mass Killings Stopped by Armed Citizens has been my most popular article.  It was published on 16 December, 2012.  I had been collecting these incidents for a few years, ever since I noticed that the old media gave them virtually no coverage.  They received a little local coverage, but were ignored/spiked by the national media. In the original publication, there were eight incidents.  Readers quickly brought more to my attention, swelling the list to fifteen.  Over the last two years, seven more incidents have been added.  One of those, the SC Boiling Springs event, does not appear to be...

    HARTFORD —The Rev. Dr. Augustus Sealy, who leads the First Church of the Nazarene on Capitol Avenue, was injured at about 6:30 a.m. Sunday in a drive-by shooting, police said. Sealy, 54, was planting small flags in the church's lawn at 932 Capitol Ave. in honor of Memorial Day. He was shot in the leg and shoulder. A witness identified a black car traveling west on Capitol Avenue, slowing as it passed the victim, and heard five gunshots. Seven shell casings were found on the scene, police said.

    Hashim Fannin refuses to play the victim role. When a would-be carjacker hopped into his car in Atlanta earlier this month, Fannin took action. The suspect, later identified as 61-year-old Edgar Horn, slid into Fannin's passenger seat in an Atlanta parking lot and told Fannin "You know what this is," Fannin recalled to ABC News. But Fannin pulled out a gun himself. "By the time he sits down, you know, I've drawn down on him," Fannin said. "At that point, his whole demeanor changes. And now suddenly, you're sorry." "In so many words, I asked him to get out of the...

    Grammy-winning country music legend Charlie Daniels is fed up with President Obama's refusal to blame Muslims for terrorism and America's political correctness when it comes to Islamic murderers, and says, "Lock and load America, trouble is on the way." In a lengthy statement on his website, triggered by the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, on May 3, Daniels blasted both Muslims and Obama. Daniels, whose hits, "The Devil Came Down To Georgia" and "The South's Gonna Do It Again" have earned him a place forever in country music history, wrote about the Garland shooting, "The ramifications of this incident should,...
  • BBC: Somalia beach Guard with Leather AK Mag Pouches

    As I watched a BBC news story about how order is being restored to Somalia, I could not help but notice the beach guard with his AK 47 and the very nice,  leather magazine pouches for 30 round magazines.   They seem to be attached to a load bearing system with shoulder straps.  From the uniformity of the pouches, it appears to be at least a local cottage industry.  The top flap seems to protect the magazines from sand, and I expect that in Somalia, a desert country, mold and decay are not huge problems.  I wonder how the leather...

    There’s one refrain which the Democrat choir always breaks out whenever they propose new gun restrictions: Oh, we’re not trying to establish some national registry of gun owners. Perish the thought! But when you look under the covers of these various proposals, they all seem to come suspiciously close to doing just that. (Not that we’re suggesting anything here, mind you. Perish the thought.) And yet that same discussion has arisen once again now that Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney has resurrected the prospect of “closing loopholes” at gun shows. Funny how that works, eh? (From The Hill) Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.)...

    U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-Alabama) made headlines recently when he introduced an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2015 (H.R. 1735). The amendment allows for the transfer of surplus 1911A1 handguns to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) for sale to the general public. Last week, in response, the U.S. army released a white paper voicing “concern” over this amendment and claimed that there would be “potential negative impacts on public safety from the large amount of semi-automatic and concealable pistols that will be released for public purchase.” These concerns included the traceability of the firearms after sale, and...
