    It's the Magnolia State's fourth Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday. It's the busiest weekend for businesses like Philadelphia Gun and Pawn. "It has been [in past years] so busy that we feel like we lost sales because we couldn't wait on everybody," says manager Richard Ray. In addition to items being tax-free, specials are being run to help buyers save even more. "If you spend a $1,000 you're already going to save $70. And everybody gets a chance to get a break on the taxes, which everybody needs to save money, and I can understand why," says Ray. Philadelphia Gun...

    A Washington-based “biohacker” has created the first implant-activated “smart gun.” A biohacker is a person who experiments with body implants including magnets and in this case, RFID keys. Smart guns use these keys to ensure that only authorized users can shoot them. The biohacker, Amal Graafstra, has successfully implanted an RFID tag in his hand that serves as a radio-activated safety when it’s in range of his smart gun. It’s a proof-of-concept system to illustrate that it is indeed possible. Graafstra founded and runs his business, Dangerous Things, from home. Current RFID-based smart gun technology uses wearable tags, such as...

    FORT HUACHUCA — The Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation is facing a more than $500,000 cut to recreation programs starting Oct. 1. As a result, DFMWR had to make tough and potentially unpopular decisions to rebalance its assets and make every dollar count. Up to this point, some recreation programs have been subsidized. This is no longer possible and passing along the costs associated with these services is prohibitive, especially within Outdoor Recreation. Outdoor Recreation and the Sportsman's Center will continue all services with the exception of arms rental and ammunition sales, which will end Aug. 28.

    When Obama vowed to use his “pen and phone” to circumvent Congress and impose his will on America, he was actually telling the truth for once. In the latest example of lawless decrees coming from the executive branch, the Obama administration is taking aim at gunsmiths and free speech. Basically, if a recent “regulation” disguised as "guidance" is not stopped, gunsmithing — an American tradition stretching back centuries that was crucial in the War for Independence — will be effectively made illegal, experts say. Another controversial element of the decree would purport to unconstitutionally criminalize many forms of gun-related speech...

Chris Murphy (D-Conn) called this trend "frightening in the extreme. We ought to be reducing the number of people carrying weapons, not increasing them. Reversing this trend has got to be a focal point for Democrats in this election cycle. Ideally, only police ought to be carrying firearms. Making sure the right person is elected president will be crucial to achieving this goal." The notion that an increase...

    If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, it is likely that your Second Amendment rights will mean nothing. The constitutional protections we have depended on for years have failed when the liberals control a court; and it is likely that Hillary will redefine all courts. The liberals’ successful record of civil asset forfeitures provides a fine example of how they can get around the constitutional protections provided by the Fifth and Second Amendments. In many civil asset forfeiture cases, the citizen has not been found guilty of any crime, but the government swoops in to seize—pardon me, to force the forfeiture...

The Crime Prevention Research Center said that last year alone a record 1.73 million were approved in states requiring them. John. R. Lott Jr., president of the Center, added that as the number of concealed carry permits has increased, the murder rate has dropped. Much of the surge in permits has come due to gun control threats from President Obama and highly-publicized mass shootings that have prompted several law enforcement officials to...

Not bad for a rifle that first hit the market in 1964. The 10/22 became my go-to rifle pretty quickly. How could I not love it?

    TALLAHASSEE — Florida has more gun manufacturers than any other state except Texas, after a surge of nearly 350 percent in licenses for gun makers fueled by the nation's growing demand for firearms. The increase in gun manufacturing licenses since 2009 has strained the resources of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — the federal law enforcement agency that monitors the nation's gun sales and distribution. As the number of licenses to make firearms grew nationally by nearly 250 percent from 3,040 licenses in 2009 to 10,503 last year, the number of special agents watching manufacturers has increased...

    <p>There are many ways to carry your concealed handguns, which brings up the argument of appendix carry vs the four o’clock, small of back or under the armpit position, etc. Appendix carry has grown in popularity, whether that’s by watching too many Hollywood movies or experimenting with the different position. Another thing that’s talked about is the carrier body composition as a factor. Seems like the thinner folks have an easier time concealing the handguns versus another who’s a little on the heavier side.</p>

"I mean, if you want to be a leader in the Democratic Party, I think this presidential election has proven that you have to be right on the issue of guns."

    The AR57 Is An Excellent High-capacity Yet Affordable Alternative For Self-defense and Varmint Hunting. The AR57 (also known as the AR Five Seven) upper receiver for the AR-15 has two claims to fame: a 50-shot capacity and downward ejection for ambidextrous operation. Operating by simple blowback, this upper is available in 6-inch pistol and 16-inch rifle versions, with the latter being reviewed here. Manufactured by the eponymous AR57 LLC, and chambered in 5.7x28mm, this upper is less powerful than the standard 5.56mm version, but it has certain tangible advantages, including reduced muzzle blast, a high practical rate of fire, nonexistent...

    Contentious as it might sound, there are significant similarities between the Islamic State terrorist organization, ISIS, and the National Rifle Association (NRA). Of course there are differences as well, but examining issues of congruence adds another dimension to the gun violence controversy. The most important parallels between ISIS and the NRA are: Institutionally, both organizations are remorseless about the deaths of victims Both use fear and intimidation to obtain their objectives Both assume their ideology is superior to the wishes of the majority of citizens Both have intensely loyal followers Both recruit and indoctrinate members who are ignorant of the...

    The Idea looked better on PaperIn World War Two Japan had a paratroop corps, Germany provided the technical assistance with equipment implementation in the late 1930’s. One of the methods was the use of parachute-equipped containers housing the firearms, this was dropped separately from the paratrooper. In the combat drop at Sumatra (Japanese) and Crete (Germany), both drop zones had problems of weapons containers landing far from troops, resulting being out gunned. At the outcome the Japanese obviously thought this wasn't a good idea, and looked at alternatives methods. One idea is to have the paratroops jump with a compact...
