  • Virginia Democrat: I Think We Should Have A Gun Registry

    Sen. Barbara Favola says she doesn’t want to take away your guns. She just wants to know what you’re packing. The Arlington Democrat is proposing to have the state study whether the registration of firearms in Virginia is feasible, because she believes arming police with a database of gun records would provide them with an additional tool to fight crime. But she knows even a study will draw opposition in Richmond […] “My guess is that there will not be a single Republican who will vote for this bill,” says Sen Richard Black (R-Loudoun). “The whole purpose of [the study]...

    Many people view Texas as an extremely gun friendly state. Texas has been becoming gun friendly, but the image has not been entirely deserved. The Texas Legislature only restored partial open carry rights last year, after banning most open carry for a hundred and thirty years after Reconstruction.  Open carry still requires a permit from the state. The permit fee is $140, putting it out of the reach of many people.  State Representative Jonathan Stickland wants to change that. From caller.com: “It’s time in Texas to restore our Second Amendment rights to their originally intended level,” said state Rep....

    gundigest.com ^ | Dec. 5, 2016 | Drew Warden
    The classic M16A1 was the iconic rifle of the Vietnam War. It was issued to the vast majority of U.S. soldiers during the conflict, and it’s general success in combat led to its continued service in the U.S. armed forces in varied forms over the years. And of course it wasn’t too long before the M16’s popularity translated to the civilian market as well.Luckily, earlier this summer at the 2016 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky, Colt teased the release of a reproduction, semi-auto-only M16A1 that faithfully replicates the look and features of the original, Vietnam-era rifle....

    Do you like to shoot the .22 pistols? Have you tried the Ruger Mark 4, or the S&W Victory Pistol? The all-new Ruger Mark 4 Pistol has lovers and haters. On the other hand, the S&W competition, the Victory Pistol, equally has fans and non-fans. The guy from 22 Plinkster fired both and examined the pros and cons of both pistol models. He goes over which one is more simple to work with as far as taking apart and which has the better grip.See the full action here, what about you, which one do you like to use for plinking...

    On December 7, the New York Times made two things clear: 1. Gun controllers are losing, as exemplified by Donald Trump’s win; 2. Corporate lawyers are coming to their rescue, donating “tens of millions” of dollars worth of pro-bono work to said groups in order to help fight Trump’s pro-gun push. Teams of corporate lawyers began working for gun controllers in a somewhat unorganized manner after the June 12 Orlando Pulse attack failed to garner any gun control traction. The teams of lawyers were not united, rather, “they worked largely on their own,” the NYT reports. Now they are unifying...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Police have arrested four Virginia men who they say were part of a conspiracy to smuggle guns from their home state into New York City for sale on the street. Prosecutors say 28-year-old Clive Dixon, the suspected ringleader of the group, was apprehended along with three of his suppliers following an investigation into the "iron pipeline" of illegally trafficked firearms. Emmanuel Dentmond, 22, and Teal Holt, Jr., 27, were arrested at separate Virginia Beach residences and are currently in the Virginia Beach City Jail awaiting extradition.

    Ohio State University is still reeling from the attack last week. A terrorist followed the Islamic State playbook as he drove his car into a crowd of students and slashed others with a knife — 12 people were injured. Fortunately, a campus police officer was able to shoot the attacker in a record time of less than two minutes. University President Michael Drake took this as evidence that only campus police should be armed on campus. Police are very important, but they virtually always arrive after the attack has occurred and they have an extremely difficult job stopping terrorists —...

    The Los Angeles Times editorial board says the Donald Trump backed, NRA push for nationwide concealed carry reciprocity is bad for public safety, calling it “absurd and dangerous” in a piece published Saturday. Lawmakers have four bills drafted that would make concealed carry reciprocity a federal law allowing gun owners licensed to carry in one state, to be able to carry in any other state. The Times calls it an effort to “dismantle state and local gun-control laws,” driving nationwide concealed carry laws “to the lowest common denominator” by allowing people to get carry permits in states with less...

    Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- A number of states have unusual rules about what may be used for hunting and what may not. Pennsylvania had a law that forbid hunting with semi-automatic rifles and pistols.They did not forbid hunting with semi-auto shotguns.The hunter shown in the image from the Game Commission web site is using a semi-auto shotgun, probably to hunt deer, as she is wearing hunter orange and the shotgun has sights on it.

Among their priorities: eliminating gun-free zones at schools, reducing requirements for background checks and ensuring that concealed carry handgun permits from one state are recognized everywhere in the U.S. “This is our historic moment to go on offense and to defeat the forces that have aligned against our freedom once and for all,” Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the National Rifle Association, said in a video after...

His latest kill is said to be a “high valued target” in the terror group, which has put up fierce resistance as the US-backed coalition attempts to recapture Iraq’s second city from the extremists. . . . Taking his position outside a compound that was once a base for former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, the sharpshooter needed just a single bullet to punch through the...

    Elections have consequences. The presidential election of Donald Trump has been occupying most of the news space. The gun culture did very well in state and local elections.  In Missouri, a Republican, Eric Greitens, replaces former Governor Nixon.  Governor Nixon was decidedly anti-Second Amendment.  An omnibus gun law reform bill was passed over his veto in Missouri last year. That bill included permitless or "Consititutional" carry. Originally the bill contained a watered down provision for the exercise of Second Amendment rights at public institutions of higher learning. Current Missouri law allows campus administrations to ban weapons on campus.  All...

"The wounds are not consistent with being shot from above while on the ground," Jefferson Parish Coroner Dr. Gerry Cvitanovich said, as he discussed McKnight's autopsy during a press conference Friday (Dec. 2).

    The Marine Corps is considering suppressing all small arms. Military organizations have historically been slow to adopt new technologies.

Suppressors have been commonly used by sportsmen around the world for decades long before widespread adoption by any military. The United States is the exception, due to irrational regulation. The Marine Corp is in the process of equipping an entire battalion with suppressed small arms. From ameriforce.net: In...

    Since Hillary has presumably gone to a home for used basilisks, we will perhaps hear less about gun control for a bit. As in, maybe, eight years. The unending drive to outlaw firearms remains fascinating in various ways, first in that it represents a desire for conclusive abandonment of constitutional government. This is far along in other spheres–jury trial, speedy trial, jury of peers, declaration of war, warrantless search. Recently we have had a clear intention by a major party simply to ignore such constitutional provisions as it finds inconvenient. Of course many of their voters couldn’t name two rights...

He lost in Maine by 4 percent, and won in Nevada by just 0.8 percent. Now, Nevadans won’t be able to privately transfer their firearms without going through a background check. Bloomberg’s initiative only eked out the win in Nevada because of the $20 million spent to support it, amounting to an incredible $35.30 per vote. He outspent his opponents by a factor of three – in Maine, by a...

That’s more background checks run on a single day since the system was launched almost two decades ago. NICS numbers are the closest indication of gun sales since they determine whether a prospective buyer is eligible to buy firearms. Before ringing up a sale, cashiers call in a check to the FBI or to...

    When I write about gun control, I generally make two arguments. First, criminals are lawbreakers, so the notion that they will be disarmed because of gun control is a fantasy [1]. Crooks and thugs who really want a gun will always have access [2] to black-market weapons. Second, to the extent that good people obey bad gun-control laws (and hopefully they won’t [3]), that will encourage more criminal activity since bad people will be less worried [4] about armed resistance. These points are common sense, but they doesn’t seem to convince many leftists, who have a religious-type faith that good...

In November 2016, independent monitoring group Conflict Armament Research released a report detailing the captured weapons and their likely points of origins and destinations. According to the analysis, the shipments showed links between Iran and armed groups Tehran supports in the Gulf of Aden region.

    While rainy weather put plans for a community march on hold, several people still showed up to honor 15-year-old James Means. "I thought about it, but I thought that for what I want to stand for rain is pretty small," said Trish Hatfield of Charleston, WV. Means was shot and killed on Charleston's East End last week. Those who still showed up to the march say they hope it will be rescheduled. "If it is in the snow I'll be here in the snow. Whatever I takes to show solidarity with the means family and to really try to begin...

    This short video shows how not to fire a 12 gauge pistol/Sawed off shotgun. The link is below. http://i.imgur.com/HXFJbBT.mp4 The video shows the person firing with a less than firm grip on the firearm.  Shotguns shells can develop considerable recoil.  Without a firm grip, and only using one hand, the firearm flies out of the shooter's hand and smacks him in the face. It could have been worse. Occasionally a shooter with a weak grip will find that the firearm escapes his grasp while the trigger finger stays engaged. The firearm then may fire one or more shots as...

    There will be a gun turn in event in Cleveland, Ohio on Sunday, 4 December,  2016.  While these events are commonly labeled with the propaganda term “buyback” the guns were never owned by the people attempting to buy them. Private sales of firearms in Ohio are legal, and Cleveland cannot override state law.  The location has changed from 2014. That year, the location was on Payne Avenue. This year it will be on Chester Avenue.  From patch.com: CLEVELAND, OH — Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Chief of Police Calvin D. Williams proudly announce that the 2016 City of Cleveland...
  • Tim Kaine initially blames ‘gun violence’ for Ohio State car-and-knife attack

    11/30/2016 3:52:42 PM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 46 replies
    Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said Monday he was saddened by the “senseless act of gun violence” at Ohio State University, even though the attacker used a butcher knife and a car. Mr. Kaine, who ran on the 2016 Democratic ticket with presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, was accused of pushing a gun-control agenda after his Twitter post blaming firearms for the siege. Eleven people were injured in a rampage by Somali-born student Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who drove into a crowd on a sidewalk and then chased bystanders with a knife in what is being investigated as a possible act of...
  • Sorry, New York Times, But ‘Smart Guns’ Are A Dumb Idea

    The Federalist ^ | 11/30/16 | Daniel Payne
    The New York Times has a problem with guns. The problem is both personal and professional, namely: the fellows who run the Times do not know all that much about guns, and they do not care to take any steps to learn about them. The problem manifests itself heterogeneously: they cannot seem to get guns right no matter how they approach them. They do not understand concealed carry laws. They do not understand gun statistics. They do not understand assault weapons bans. They do not understand the rules of NRA conventions. They do not understand Australia’s gun control laws. They...
  • In New York, Old-School Officers Swear By the Vanishing .38 (Flashback)

    NY Times ^ | 12-13-2004 | MICHAEL WILSON
    ...So, the model of an officer's gun dates him or her like rings on a tree. The outer bands are the semiautomatic, 9-millimeter pistols. The next ring is much thinner, the brief period of the so-called spurless revolver, a gun with an internal hammer that for safety cannot be cocked. Finally, in the center, there is the classic revolver, such as the Smith & Wesson Model 10 or the Ruger Police Service Six, more commonly seen on "T.J. Hooker" reruns or film noir than on the streets of New York. The grips still echo the earliest revolvers, designed in the...
