    In a bustling Tampa courtroom, a lawyer is making the case for keeping guns out of the hands of a man named Anthony Ballard. Judge Ron Ficarrotta flips through court paperwork and reads the alarming details: How a friend said Ballard, 30, showed him a violent and graphic video of a gunman shooting down patrons in a bank. Ballard told his friend: “This will be me one day. I’m gonna be the greatest mass shooter. I’m gonna shoot the most people ever and be famous for it.” The file recounts how deputies tracked Ballard down and how he begged them...
  • Three More Essential Firearms

    10/22/2019 3:48:46 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 57 replies ^ | October 22, 2019 | Mike Adams
    In my last column, I recommended three firearms every man had to own in order to retain his man card. The theme of the column was threefold – 1) Protecting one’s home, 2) Protecting one’s loved ones while away from home, and 3) Raising children with respect for firearms (and, of course, knowledge of responsible firearm use). Since only three essential firearms were recommended, I was bombarded with emails asking me which should follow. I am certainly glad they asked. And I am happy to provide the next three choices needed to advance those three important interests:The Mossberg 500 .410...

    Afternoon folks - with all the how-to's and material posted over the last few months, I realized I never posted the core guide for all past AR-15 guides. How to Complete an AR-15 80% Lower ReceiverThis instructional and visual guide covers how to complete a typical billet or forged lower receiver for an AR-15, using an 80% lower. A drill press and router are used for drilling and cutting the fire control cavity with the jig, as opposed to a milling machine. Like most jigs designed for this project, a router isn't necessarily required. Plunge cuts can instead be made...

    Following the fourth Democratic debate in Westerville, Ohio, BlazeTV's Eric Bolling questioned candidates Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) about their support for a gun confiscation policy, and asked billionaire presidential candidate Tom Steyer why he thinks the economy isn't thriving under President Donald Trump. "Congressman, can you please clarify how you will get the ARs and AKs back," Bolling asked O'Rourke. "I expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If you own and AR-15, if you own an AK-47, and it is no longer legal to own that, I expect you to turn it in," O'Rourke said....

    SEATTLE — When Kaleb J. Cole landed at Chicago O’Hare International Airport after a trip to Europe last year, federal officials were waiting at the gate for a chance to question him. In his luggage was the trefoil flag of a neo-Nazi hate group. On his phone, a photo of two people posing at the site of the Auschwitz death camp. The officials did not charge Mr. Cole with any crimes that day, or in the months to come, despite information that he was a leader of the Atomwaffen Division, one of the most violent extremist groups in the country....

    Democratic presidential candidate former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke pushed back against criticism that his gun confiscation plan is unrealistic by citing "the successful 1993 action against gun scofflaws in Waco taken by the Clinton Administration. Here we had a cult armed to the teeth. Attorney General Janet Reno didn't hesitate to use force to achieve the disarmament of these dangerous misfits. All I'm proposing is that we use the same courageous proactive approach toward today's anti-government traitors and terrorists."

    It seems The View hosts just can’t get over their Clinton crush. Every time Chelsea or Hillary appears on The View, they beg them to run for office. On Wednesday’s show, Chelsea Clinton stopped by for the second time in two weeks to talk about this and rave over last night’s Democratic debate. As Clinton sat down, she was immediately asked if she was running for Congress, (which she denied.) Co-host Sunny Hostin gushed, “Why not?!” while fellow co-host Abby Huntsman wanted to know “Do you think you ever will?” Finally Clinton conceded it was possible, saying, “I don’t know”...

    During the October 15, Democrat debate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made clear that AR-15 owners who refuse to hand over their guns will have them taken away. O’Rourke reiterated his plan to use a government-mandated buyback to confiscate privately-owned AR-15s and AK-47s. In so doing, he claimed that each AR-15 and AK-47 in private hands is a “potential instrument of terror.”CNN’s Anderson Cooper then asked O’Rourke how he plans to get people to hand over their rifles.  O’Rourke responded by explaining that he expects complains with the mandatory buybacks. He said, “I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same...

    Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom has approved some of the strictest gun laws and gun seizure powers in the U.S. Friday, signing into law 15 different pieces of gun legislation. Newsom has reinforced a “red flag” law that enables educators, employers and co-workers to inform on gun owners and request that a restraining order be placed on them — if they are believed to be a danger to themselves or society, according to the Associated Press. The bill was deemed to be to extreme even for Newsom’s predecessor, former Gov. Jerry Brown, who was also an enthusiastic advocate of gun...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday signed a law that will make the state the first to allow employers, co-workers and teachers to seek gun violence restraining orders against other people. The bill was vetoed twice by former governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, and goes beyond a measure that he signed allowing only law enforcement officers and immediate family members to ask judges to temporarily take away peoples' guns when they are deemed a danger to themselves or others. They were among 15 gun-related laws Newsom approved as the state strengthens what the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence calls...

    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force.. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it. In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical...

I am hoping there might be a Freeper who has some knowledge of these cartridges and the guns so chambered.

Travis Campbell: “We’re here to change the image of the black gun owner.” Across America, there are now 30,000 members in 75 chapters. It’s a rapidly growing group that was started only four years ago, and most members joined not just because they like the sport of shooting, but because they see this as a safe space.
