  • Marines Ditch the M-16, What?

    07/29/2015 6:40:26 AM PDT · by w1n1 · 17 replies
    Marine Corps Times ^ | 7/29/2015 | James K Sanborn
    Marine leaders have made the momentous recommendation to ditch the iconic M16 in favor of the M4 carbine as the new universal weapon for infantrymen. The recommendation to swap the venerated rifle that has served as the grunt’s primary implement of war since Vietnam now sits on the commandant’s desk, pending his final review and a decision. But, the swap appears imminent and if approved will relegate the M16 to a support role. It follows a similar shift already underway in the Army. With the endorsement of several major commands already supporting the switch — including Marine Corps Combat Development...

    Sometimes companies seem to appear overnight, or spontaneously come up with a solution to a problem you didn’t even know you had. In these scenarios people should remember that the spotlight only shines on those who have made the grade. The work, pain, risk, heart and drive to get to that point rarely attracts focus. Battle Comp Enterprises, maker of compensators, is one of these companies, although I might be several years too late bringing about that point. Nonetheless, not only did they appear onstage in 2010, but they have managed, against all national economic challenges, to grow and continue...

    As with every such tragedy, the recent shooting in a Lafayette, Louisiana theater has brought yet another round of calls for increased gun control measures from liberal politicians. (And, sadly, a few Republicans as well.) Gun rights advocates have had to once again trudge out in front of the cameras and explain why this is precisely the wrong sort of thinking when dealing with the problems of madmen and violence. The job really shouldn’t be all that hard, particularly in light of yet another poll which shows that Americans increasingly seem to agree that a good guy with a...

    Dr. Seuss’ new book, “What Pet Should I Get?” inspired me to write a Seuss-style poem from the perspective of a mother who wants a gun to defend her family. My poem is a plea for 2nd Amendment rights in the wake of recent mass tragedies committed by Dylann Roof, Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez and John Houser. As you know, I’ve written many columns in defense of gun rights. However, given last week’s tragic shooting in a Louisiana movie theatre, I will try reaching hearts and minds by presenting my facts in a more creative way. Please share this column with...

    Nevada Sen. Dean Heller knew it wasn’t a good idea to ban arms from our military bases and recruiting centers, which is why in June—weeks before the Chattanooga attack—he submitted an amendment to the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act which would “give military base commanders the authority to allow service members to carry personal firearms.” Unfortunately, his amendment was blocked, by none other than Sen. John McCain. The Republican senator explained in an interview on the Lars Larson Show that McCain, who’s the Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman, “didn’t want the amendment as part of the [2016 National Defense Authorization]...

    A woman in Charleston, W.Va., may have saved her own life and the lives of many other women, as well, when she shot and killed an alleged attacker in her home last week. Neal Falls showed up at the woman’s home on July 18 after answering an escort ad she had placed on Backpage.com, according to police. He showed up with a “kill list,” multiple pairs of handcuffs and a Subaru full of weapons and tools, including a shovel, knives, a bulletproof vest, a machete, bleach, trash bags, sledgehammers and axes, according to Fox affiliate KPTV. In Falls’s pocket, police...

    John Russell Houser was deeply troubled long before he shot 11 people in a movie theater in Louisiana, but decades of mental problems didn't keep him from buying the handgun he used. Despite obvious and public signs of mental illness — most importantly, a Georgia judge's order committing him to mental health treatment against his will as a danger to himself and others in 2008 — Houser was able to walk into an Alabama pawn shop six years later and buy a .40-caliber handgun. [Snip] Court records reviewed by The Associated Press strongly suggest Houser should have been reported to...

    If you thought the elderly's weapon of choice was their knitting needle, think again. A growing trend reveals that today’s senior citizens are taking advantage of their Second Amendment rights just as much as younger generations. One gun store in Georgia, Sandy Springs Gun Club and Range, has seen an influx of senior citizens eager to get their hands on firearms. Sandy Springs records show a 30 percent increase among seniors buying guns, or showing up for target practice. Even more telling are statistics from Dekalb County which show that out of 1,800 gun applications, 244 were over 55 years old....

    While the Spring 2015 Unified Agenda is markedly vague concerning most of its 3,415 regulations, clearly its overarching purpose is to enforce American compliance with an ever-expanding body of “international norms” like those required by the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Consequently, the 2015 Unified Agenda contains a number of backdoor gun control measures designed to further restrict the possession, storage, sale and acquisition of firearms and ammunition by law-abiding citizens; yet in contrast, the Obama administration intends to lessen such restrictions for non-citizens. Rule 1140-AA44, originally signed by Eric Holder, “would finalize an interim rule published on...

The gunman, according to the police, was a 58-year-old white man who opened fire from his weapon at a movie theatre in Louisiana on Thursday evening. Later he shot himself, the Lafayette City Police chief Jim Craft told reporters. Jindal, who has been busy in his presidential campaign most of the week rushed to the scene to personally lead the post-shooting effort. "I'm on my way to Lafayette right...

An unidentified reporter asked Pelosi if she supports the current GOP push to force cities to comport with immigration laws, and Pelosi made clear that she does not. She then explained her opposition by making nameless references to the July 1 murder of Kathryn Steinle–allegedly shot to death by illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez on San Francisco’s Pier 14–and argued that sanctuary cities are not the problem.

    Not long ago, I was in the market for a small handgun safe. After visiting a local gun shop and bringing home something made by GunVault, I took my new safe out of its box, and wondered if I’d spent too much. Up close, the device looked insubstantial. A nagging suspicion motivated me to go online, where I quickly discovered research by Marc Tobias and Tobias Bluzmanis of Investigative Law Offices and Security Laboratories. Their work confirmed my suspicion about the safe. It could be broken into easily. Tobias and Bluzmanis, who specialize in evaluating security systems, did an analysis...

    In a new push toward gun control, the Obama administration wants to bar certain individuals receiving Social Security benefits from owning firearms if they are deemed no longer able to handle their affairs. The Los Angeles Times reported that the White House wants the Social Security Administration to weed out beneficiaries who cannot manage their affairs because of what federal gun laws label “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease” and then report those individuals to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Established in 1993, the background check system is used to prevent certain dangerous...

Specifically, if you are someone collecting benefits who has their payments handled by another family member or third party, you could find your information being turned over to the feds and your gun rights suspended.

Since President Obama’s election the number of concealed handgun permits has soared, growing from 4.6 million in 2007 to over 12.8 million this year. Among the findings in our report: -- The number of concealed handgun permits is increasing at an ever- increasing rate.

On top of that, they may even be eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion, which in 2014 meant that the first $99,200 of their total income earned overseas was excluded from being taxed at the Federal level (it’s higher for 2015). However – and I can’t emphasize this enough – they are earning it! Naturally, the best-paying jobs are in high-threat environments such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria,...

It's one thing to know that the Obama administration has proposed shrinking the size of our active duty military, and has negotiated deals that inure to the financial benefit of nations who hate us. It's another thing to watch our loyal servicemen and women having to work on military bases with no ability to protect themselves. This is the last straw.

For our lead item, we return to New York where Governor Andrew Cuomo has just moved to quietly suspend a portion of the odious SAFE Act, resulting in all sorts of anger from the Democrats here. (From the New York Times) The administration of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo agreed on Friday to suspend a plan to require background checks on ammunition sales, putting in doubt part of the gun control law that...

    A high-profile shooting, like the June 17 crime that left dead nine members of a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina, is typically followed by calls for greater gun control, along with counter arguments that the best way to stop gun crimes is with more guns. "The one thing that would have at least ameliorated the horrible situation in Charleston would have been that if somebody in that prayer meeting had a conceal carry or there had been either an off-duty policeman or an on-duty policeman, somebody with the legal authority to carry a firearm and could have stopped...

    While President Barack Obama during his Pentagon visit on Monday explained his approach to fighting and defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) with the statement that “Ideologies are not defeated by guns; they’re defeated with better ideas,” Israeli political officials and their security commanders announced their own plans for a specially trained brigade. According to an Israeli source, Geoff Gotfield, a former member of a police counterterrorism team, the new unit – created and trained in secret – was also formed to deal with the threat of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, despite Obama and Secretary of State...

    New York Sen. Charles Schumer (D.) wrote letters to Amazon and eBay urging them and other online retailers to stop selling gun-grip iPhone cases on their platforms. Schumer argues that the case “creates danger when seen in kids’ pockets” and likely breaks federal law, according to press release posted to his website Tuesday.Versions of the cases available online come in multiple colors and feature imitation trigger guards, grips, and barrels. The particular “Gun Grip Case” cited by Schumer resembles a 9mm handgun and features an imitation trigger guard and grip. “Any retailer willing to sell this potentially dangerous and tasteless...

    Looking down from atop a three-story shooting tower, 12 steel targets stand out along a green hillside, each one further away than the last. They’re all challenging, and the furthest sits at 936 yards. When the buzzer sounds, you’ll have three minutes to shoot all 12. The problem is, you can’t actually see the targets yet. You’re starting at the bottom of the tower’s stairwell, carrying 200 rounds of ammunition, a coat, a gear bag, a sling, sunscreen, elbow pads, bipod, and a heavy sniper rifle. By the time you get to the top of those stairs and see the...
