  • ‘Literally Know Nothing’: Tucker Takes On Dem Over Banning MUZZLE LOADERS

    The Daily Caller ^ | 11/16/17 | Justin Caruso
    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took on a Democrat Thursday over a new gun control measure targeting muzzle loaders. Carlson asked New York City Council member Jumaane Williams, “So how many crimes do you think in the last, I don’t know, 100 years have been committed with muzzle loaders?” Williams answered, “Well, once this new muzzle is created, we just don’t know. But, what you do a great job in, and it works for you, so I’m not saying you should stop. You do a great job of focusing on these single things…” Tucker responded, “Oh you mean the facts? Yeah...

    Few things are more painful to me than the abuse of power, or incompetence in the execution of that power. The consequences for those affected by such malfeasance and clumsiness are so great as to demand a sense of outrage from us all. Over the last year, for example, dozens of men, including the president of the United States himself, have been credibly accused of sexual assault and sexual misconduct. And the fact that they were powerful men made the allegations really sting. That’s why I find misconduct and chicanery on the part of the law enforcement community so troubling....

    How different are we in the ways we think when comparing us fun loving gun concealed carrying guys to our counterparts/our loved ones. There have been many articles and educated papers on the subject. Yes, men are from Mars and women are from Venus, so they (sociologists) say. Most of the time me and the misses are totally on topic. But once in a while when we’re getting ready to head out, we’re just totally not thinking the same way. As my priority is safety in mind for me and the family. Have a look at this video of whats...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 11/15/17 | Robert Farago
    In the wake of three high-profile mass shootings — Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs and Rancho Tehema — I wonder if firearms freedom fence sitters are starting to get the message: gun control doesn’t work. Background checks don’t stop criminals, crazies and terrorists from tooling-up and going postal. Background checks don’t stop them. Assault weapon bans don’t stop them. Ammunition capacity laws don’t stop them. A bullet to the brain? That stops them! Here’s more proof [via dailyrecord.co.uk] . . . An eccentric pensioner who was found to have a massive arsenal of weapons after the fire brigade rushed to...
  • Semi-Auto Rifles: Common for 100 Years: Mass Shooters, Not

    Opponents of an armed population often claim that semi-automatic rifles are a new phenomena in the United States. That is false. One of the first successful semi-automatic or self loading rifles was the Remington Model 8 above. It was patented in 1900 by John Moses Browning.Commercial production started in 1906. It was a successful design, used in the hunting fields, in law enforcement, and had limited usage in the U.S. military. The model 8 was modified a bit in 1936 and become the model 81, which was produced until 1950. You can see that some of the design features...

    Image via Screenshot   After the Texas church mass shooting just over a week ago, a New York church is issuing a strong warning: “We say it again. We are not a gun-free zone.” A sign in front of Lighthouse Mexico Church of God in Oswego County in upstate New York makes the warning abundantly clear. Pastor Ronald Russell in an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Monday explained that the church is “just putting out a warning that we believe in the Second Amendment and we do carry, and it's not going to happen in our church."

    'Cue the .50 caliber muzzleloader, which delivers a particularly lethal .50 caliber round' Former congresswoman Gabby Giffords's gun control group released a report on Wednesday warning of the dangers of muzzle loading rifles, a number of other firearms, and some firearms accessories and calling for new gun control measures targeting the devices. The group, which recently changed its name from Americans for Responsible Solutions to Giffords, said in a release its report was intended to identify "extremely lethal firearms and devices" that it believes skirt current firearms laws.

    You’ve heard the statistics before: Americans have more guns per head than any nation on earth – along with gun violence rates that are dramatically higher than other rich, developed countries. But these big-picture facts can be misleading. Not every American is packing heat and gun violence is intensely concentrated in small neighbourhoods. Here’s a look at the dramatic concentration of America’s guns – and America’s violence:
  • New Gun Bill Urges Everyone to Obey the Other Gun Bills

    A new bipartisan bill aimed at fixing the holes in the federal background check system was introduced today. Sponsored by an unlikely collection of senators that includes Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas), the "Fix NICS Act" promises to "enforce current law regarding the National Instant Criminal Background Check System" (NICS) by giving money to states that do a good job of getting records into the system, and by penalizing federal agencies that do a bad job of it. The proposal is a response to the Air Force's failure to report Sutherland Springs shooter Devin Kelley's assault conviction to...

    The Trump administration has reversed a ban on the importing of trophies from elephants killed in Zimbabwe and Zambia, to outcry from wildlife organisations across the world. The move overturns the ban put in place by the Obama administration in 2014 and is a heavy blow to the international campaign to end the ivory trade, whose backers include Prince Harry and Prince William. It also comes after the president's sons, Donald Jr and Eric Trump, were heavily criticized in 2012 after being photographed with a leopard and other big game kills including an elephant. Though elephants are listed as endangered...

    When gunfire erupted Tuesday afternoon outside a Dollar General store, two men at a neighboring business jumped into action. And now they're being called heroes by police. As a man started firing a pump action firearm into the discount store at Union Road and Gardenville Parkway West, Christopher Kaufmann, a manager at Daryll's Car Audio across the street, called 911. Mark Pinnavaia, the owner of Daryll's, grabbed his cellphone and keys and hopped into his Ford Focus in the parking lot. His initial intention, he said, was to maintain a good vantage point so he could be "the best witness...

It was a short segment. I did not have a recorder going, but I heard this report near the end of the segment.  I believe it is fairly accurate, certainly the sense of it. I could not find a transcript of it on the Internet.After a report on heroics at the Sutherland First Baptist Church, in Texas, the scene of a horrific mass murder, this was the report:The gunman...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 11/16/2017 | J Hines
    In the world of gun innovation almost anything is possible. For instances, this Youtuber made a barrel out of a rebar. He constructed the barrel to fit a .22. Here’s the excerpt of his process: “The barrel is made from ~1″ rebar about 18 inches long that I got at the local scrap yard. First I center-drilled the end and went about 3″ in with a standard-length 5/16 drill bit. Then I deep-drilled it about 10” using a Dewalt branded installer bit from the local home center. I expected this bit to burn out pretty quickly through so much solid...

Neal "was not law enforcement friendly" and authorities a number of times had come to his house after complaints that shots were fired from the property, Johnston said.

    The Trump administration plans to allow hunters to import trophies of elephants they killed in Zimbabwe and Zambia back to the United States, reversing a ban put in place by the Obama administration in 2014, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service official confirmed to ABC News today. Even though elephants are listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act, a provision in the act allows the government to give permits to import these trophies if there is evidence that the hunting actually benefits conservation for that species. The official said they have new information from officials in Zimbabwe and Zambia...

  • Senators 'Super close' on bipartisan deal on guns

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said on Wednesday that senators are nearing a bipartisan deal on gun legislation following a number of high-profile mass shootings. Murphy's office pointed The Hill to comments made last week by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), who said that he would talk to Democrats about strengthening background checks – an initiative that gained some bipartisan momentum earlier this month after a gunman opened fire on a church in southern Texas, killing 26 people. It was revealed shortly after the attack that the gunman, 26-year-old Devin Kelley, was able to slip through the system and purchase...
