    Everyone has the right to keep and bear arms in the United States, but that doesn’t necessarily mean everyone should. This collection of gun failures is a lesson in gun safety for anyone who thinks that guns are some kind of toy. From gangbangers to glamour girls, this video is a “how-not-to” lesson in gun safety 101. Listen ladies and gentleman, don’t make it easier for the liberal gun grabbers to try and deprive us of the right to bear arms by behaving like the people in these videos. Always treat every gun as if it’s loaded. Never, ever point...

    An Alabama congressional candidate uses a .40 Glock pistol, a .270 Cooper rifle and an AR-15 to destroy a copy of the Obamacare bill in a new video released by his campaign. The message in candidate Will Brooke’s video, shared first with The Daily Caller on Wednesday, is clear: Republicans have been successful in taking shots at Obamacare, but it’s going to take “more extreme measures” to get rid of it.

    Since the sensationalized reports in American mass media of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, the earlier movie theater killing in Aurora, Colorado and the rampage at the Navy Yard in Washington D.C., there has been a renewed focus on passing new legislation making acquiring a firearm more difficult and building a bureaucratic paper trail on citizens purchasing them. So far none of it has gotten any traction, but we're only another sensationalized event away from a new salvo against gun owners. The rationale for the proposed hindrances of average citizens and their lawful rights to own firearms is that some...

    The Peruta dominos continue to fall. In an earlier decision in Baker v Kealoha, a District Court refused to rule in favor of the plaintiff, Christopher Baker. Baker had moved for an injunction against various Hawaii state agencies that had denied him a carry license. As a Ninth Circuit panel summed up the District Court’s rationale, the District Court denied the motion because, “Baker was not likely to establish that Hawaii’s restrictions on carrying firearms in public were unconstitutional under the Second Amendment, and therefore, Baker was not likely to succeed on the merits.” But that was pre-Peruta . ....

    Gun owners know that registration always leads to confiscation. Joseph Stalin’s firearms confiscation was a tremendous success for the Socialist state. Under the Tsar, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. That all changed when Stalin and the communists took control. Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people… after he took their guns. (Zinnfigur)

According to the deputies, the man refused to drop the rifle, and pulled a second gun from inside his jacket, and pointed it at them. Both deputies shot at the man;...

It is a .223 bullpup with a 19” barrel that uses a short stroke gas piston and a rotating bolt, along with a reciprocating charging handle.

    This year the FBI changed their course of fire for the handgun. Due to the incidents of special agents getting killed while involved in shootout with assailants. These shootouts occurred within 10 feet, that's 65%. The conventional thinking is that if you can shoot at 25 yards and beyond, then shooting at 20 feet should be easy. However, statistics shows differently. The irony of this change in the pistol course of fire is that the FBI was toting their horn for all law enforcement agency (nationwide) to implement a close quarter shooting course that focuses on fighting with the handgun...

Chief Constable Andy Marsh, the association’s spokesman on firearms licensing, also called on the Treasury to plug the financial hole. Sporting gun users immediately said they feared the move was a backdoor attempt to cut the number of gun owners in the country. A five-year firearms or shotgun certificate currently costs Ł50, yet police forces estimate they cost around Ł200 each to process the paperwork and ensure the guns are being stored safely.
