    In her all-out battle with Hamas terrorists, Israel is fighting for the entire civilized world. The Israelis are our side, our family in this war. Call it the “great grandparents” factor: The vast majority of those of us who enjoy the blessings of living in America can trace our good fortune to a decision by our great grandparents to come to America instead of staying where they were or going elsewhere. At the turn of the 20th century, millions of people came to America to build a country and contribute to its greatness. The list of American achievements since then...

    One is not racing clean. A champion racehorse owned by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for morphine, a banned substance on race days in the United Kingdom. The British Horseracing Authority announced last week that tests on five horses under the care of various trainers showed the presence of morphine in their 'A' samples. Late Tuesday, Buckingham Palace said that one of the horses was the monarch's 5-year-old mare Estimate The Daily Telegraph reports that the horse will likely forfeit its second-place finish in the Gold Cup at Ascot this past June, as well as the prize money...
  • Inside One Hobby Lobby Employee's Inspiring Fight for Equality (So-called "transgender")

    It wasn't enough that Hobby Lobby won in a landmark Supreme Courty case for employers being able to deny women reproductive healthcare coverage. Now, the conservative-led company wants to also dictate which restrooms women can use at work. That is, if you happen to be a transgender woman. Megan Sommerville, a 16-year veteran of the arts and crafts franchise, began her transition in 2009 and had her name legally changed in 2010. But she was nevertheless recently written up at her Aurora, Ill., store when she began using the women's restroom. According to Sommerville, store managment said that she'd only...

    Get ready for the next level of attention whoring; the selfie stick. The selfie stick could be a fad, but it could also become so common no one comments when someone pulls one out. The selfie stick is already popular all over Asia, where social degeneration is a couple years ahead of America. Vendors in the United States report selling out of selfie sticks, and the GoPro-Edition telescopic monopod is currently the 49th most popular item in the Amazon camera store.

    The uproar on the left over the Hobby Lobby decision has an explanation. That explanation is that we have allowed our understanding of what is meant by rights and liberties to become badly degraded. In fact, to simplify, the common understanding of rights has gotten into a condition of extreme labefactation. So to speak. The left tends to think of political rights in terms of stuff — the right to affordable housing, the right to health care, the right to contraception, and so on. Conservatives tend to think of political rights in terms of non-interference — the right to free...

    When it comes to 3D printers, they can be used to make all sorts of objects, via additive manufacturing. However, many ‘makers’ (people who utilize their creative abilities to ‘make’ things) use more than just 3D printers when trying to visualize their ideas in creating tangible objects. CNC machining, as well as laser engravers are used by many individuals in creating complete products, made from a multitude of materials and processes. One problem with this, is that all of these processes currently require individual machinery. For example, many ‘makers’ end up needing to purchase, store, and operate a 3D printer,...

President Barack Obama has answered the age-old question: “Do you even lift, bro?” Obama’s 30-minute workout routine was caught on camera in the gym of the Polish hotel the president is occupying during his visit to Eastern Europe. Officials are apparently unsure how the pictures and video were taken. Local photographer Marek Kwiatkowski told the Daily Mail: “I know the gym, it isn’t possible to snap these shots from outside, they must have had someone on the inside or...

The new space, nestled in a downtown district called Franklinton, celebrated its official open house yesterday and it is going to mean a lot to central Ohio. What is it though?

    The TIG process, utilized by StrongPrint With today's technology, we have seen some major progress being made within the 3D printing space. Within a couple of years, we have seen 3D printers go from being priced in the $2500+ range, to becoming as affordable as purchasing a video game console. Today, just about anyone can afford to purchase a 3D printer, yet mass adoption has not begun to take place. One of the reasons for this, is because of the limited number of materials that affordable consumer level 3D printers are capable of printing with. We are limited to the...

    MakerBot arguably put 3D printing on the map, but it could be New Matter that ultimately puts it average people’s hands. Backed by Idealab, the startup launched a Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign on Wednesday and hopes to deliver an end-to-end 3D printing solution for less than $200 by early 2015. Aside from DIY 3D printer kits, it’s an unheard of price point for 3D printing technology and it comes with quite a pedigree. New Matter is working with and backed by Frog Design, the legendary design firm that has worked with everyone from Apple and Microsoft to GE and Sony, and...

Produced with ISO 9000 quality standards, the Canik TP9 gets right just about everything I care about. Reviewed are its toughness, reliability, accuracy, ergos, weight, firepower, and more. What results is a GTW handgun for just $319. Testing proved it is on par with all HOF GTW options in TNP. It represents screaming value, almost unheard of these days. Get it now before the price goes up and it probably will from this video. Enjoy. -...

Some of these inventions have already become a reality, while we are still awaiting the arrival of others. Another Star Trek prediction, was that of the Replicator, which...

    Meade County, South Dakota will be having a surplus property auction on May 13, 2014.   While the county sheriff initially opposed auctioning off the guns (he preferred to trade them to a dealer), more fiscally responsible heads prevailed.  The firearms are considerately above the average seen in these type of sales, perhaps because these guns were confiscated in rural South Dakota instead of inner city of Chicago.   Or perhaps the guns in the inner city might go through a different "selection" process before making it to a gun sale.  From the Rapid City Journal, we have a list of...

It doesn’t come as a surprise to me that the ATF said it’s perfectly legal to shoulder the “not-a-stock” device when attached to a pistol. I knew it was legal to shoulder the SB15 when it first hit the market as I had researched it years ago when AR15 pistols became popular and people were shouldered the stumpy extension tubes and firing them as if they were really short stocked rifles....

    The Federal Election Committee (FEC) is asking Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to explain the listing of more than $16,000 in holiday gifts in a campaign filing, according to a report. Ralston Reports, run by Nevada journalist Jon Ralston, reported Tuesday that 2016 campaign money was used on presents for supporters. Ralston said he learned the gifts were actually purchased by Reid’s granddaughter, Ryan Elisabeth Reid, who sells jewelry in Berkeley, Calif. She bought the gifts — using the campaign’s money — for Reid’s donors and backers, the report says. The filing only identified her as Ryan Elisabeth, and Ralston said...

I've always used pistols and rifles, other than a few blasts from a friend's 12 gauge double barrel. Then last week another friend invited me to a day of trap shooting sponsored by his church. He loaned me his semi-automatic 12 gauge Winchester, which was a dream to shoot. I didn't realize what a difference it made to shoot an automatic vs a double-barrel. The auto-load spring action made it far more pleasurable for me to shoot than the...

    Connecticut: The Coming Storm, posted on March 1, 2014 is officially the most-read article I’ve ever put before the public on this scruffy little blog. As one might imagine, it has provoked a great deal of controversy, here and everywhere it has been reblogged, and the number of blogs doing that seem to grow by the day, for which I am honored and grateful. For those of you visiting SMM for the first time, welcome, and I’m glad to have you. I hope my fevered scribblings are worth your time. The initial response has encouraged me to write this, the...

    Hackers (or disgruntled insiders) claim to have released a 700+MB file of Mt. Gox operational information and transaction data, including one sheet claiming the exchange could still have a balance of over 951,116 BTC. One of the hackers managed to post the data on Gox CEO Mark Karpeles’ own blog, then announced the feat on Reddit. Karpeles’ site has since gone completely offline and Reddit moderators deleted the original post. At press time the mods were engaged in a cat and mouse game with other community members who re-posted the original quote and several links claiming to be mirrors of...

    On February 27, 2014, Bearing Arms Editor Bob Owens wrote an article asking one of the more relevant questions extant: “Does the NYPD Have A Training Problem?” Bob’s article tells the story of two rookie NYPD officers who, pursuing a pair of fleeing criminals, fired a total of seven shots and entirely missed the criminal that had turned and fired at them. Unfortunately, the criminal’s marksmanship was far superior and he, firing three rounds, hit one of the officers with all three, once in each leg and once in the groin. The officer is recovering. The NYPD is not publicizing...

    "Take down the sign or go to jail. We do not approve of guns...or you." This is the unmistakable messages sent by progressives when they take over a city and freedom pays the price. Ares Armor is a small tactical store operating one of their stores in National City, CA, a suburb of San Diego. Nevermind that CEO Dimitri and his staff at Ares Armor are in complete compliance with all laws and ordinances. That does not matter. That's because guns are at the heart of this debate. The City Council has taken offense to their presence there and is...

    The TacCon 3MR trigger is a drop in system that allows the user to fire their AR15 rifle more quickly that a standard trigger allows for. The TacCon 3MR requires no modification to your rifle and the result is a very streamline and integrated system. It's an alternative to the popular bumpfire stocks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zCMZSLZwBo
