    Defensive Mountain Lion Shooting by Sheriff’s Deputy with AR15 Rifle In the afternoon of 11 January 2021, a family with two small children and two small dogs was walking along the El Dorado bike trail. They were just outside of Placerville, California, on the east side. The trail there is paved. The weather was very good for walking, the sky was clear and the temperature was about 55 degrees F, with a light breeze. The two small children were in a stroller.The couple noticed a mountain lion behind them on the trail. They shouted at the lion. It continued to...

    I have a cousin in CA who wants an AR15. He and I understand there are a ton of hoops to jump through. Question 1. Can a CA resident legally have a complete AR15 upper, 16 inch barrel, 5.55 or 223 Wylde, shipped to their residence? Question 2. Same for a lower parts kit without the stripped lower? question 3. Do you need a background check to buy ammo in CA and how much can you buy at a time? Question 4. I believe 30 round mags are lawful in CA. Is that correct? Thanks.

    The AR-15 is certainly one popular firearm. Simply put, the AR-15 the civilian version of the U.S. military’s M16. The only main difference being that you can’t fire in three-round bursts or full-automatic. But while it’s just as versatile, accurate, durable, and downright dependable as the one trusted by the uniformed services, the one thing you can do with an AR-15 that you couldn’t dream of doing in the military is customizing it. Think of Legos — but for grown-ups. Entering the vast and colorful world of rifle mods can be overwhelming at first, and it will take some time...

  • Joe Biden’s Gun Agenda Could Cost AR-15 Owners $3.6 Billion in Taxes for Guns They Already Own

    Breitbart ^ | October 17 2020 | AWR HAWKINS
    Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s proposed gun control policy includes a provision that could require every AR-15 rifle be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934. Unless there were some form of carve-out, this could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax per AR-15 that they own. The National Rifle Association’s Andrew Arulanandam told Breitbart News that the current “low end” estimate of privately-owned AR-15s in the United States is 18 million. A tax of $200 on 18 million AR-15s means that gun owners could potentially be required to a pay a collective $3.6 billion in...

    In his questioning of Amy Coney Barrett regarding an Indiana case about a non-violent felon and his constitutional right to bear arms, Illinois senator Dick Durbin dropped numerous false claims about Chicago gun crimes. But he topped it all off with one of the most egregiously inane arguments used against the private ownership of guns: When that Second Amendment was written . . . we were talking about the likelihood that a person could purchase a muzzle-loading musket. Durbin went on to say that the logical conclusion of the “originalist” position on firearms should be that the Founders were referring...

    A Florida man was arrested Monday after shooting an AR-15 assault-style rifle at a U.S. Census worker who had come near his property. Flagler County deputies were called to a home in Bunnel, about 70 miles north of Orlando, around 6:15 after the Census worker reported that Michael Cooper, 32, had fired a shot at him, according to WKMG-TV. Neighbors told officers that the Census worker had parked on the street, away from Cooper’s home, in a vehicle that identified him as a Census worker. The worker was also wearing a lanyard that identified him as a Census worker. The...

    By now the majority of you will have seen or heard of the pair of engagements in Kenosha, Wisconsin (hereinafter the "Engagements") between one Kyle Rittenhouse and a number of other individuals, some recently departed, others now unfortunately unable to operate a keyboard with any efficiency, particularly when proper capitalization is required of their typewritten text. In the wake of these encounters it is quite something to see the degree of bad information, misinformation, and disinformation that has showered the socialinterwebsitetubes, particularly from a tactical and legal perspective. On the tactical side, it is surprising that matters seem so distorted,...

    A college student at Fordham University in New York was punished and forced to undergo “political reeducation” this summer for two Instagram posts – one of which depicted the student holding an AR-15. Austin Tong is a rising senior at Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business, and he accused the school of “Soviet-style interrogation and punishment.” “I am no longer permitted on campus, with public safety coming to my home at midnight to question me on the day of the post, and face forced political reeducation through mandatory courses and to write an apology letter, or will face full suspension...

    Police responded to a Christian congregation in upstate New York after Black Lives Matter protesters assaulted worshippers at the entrance of a church that was giving away two AR-15 rifles. In a video that went viral on Facebook, protesters can be seen screaming at a woman holding a child and two others in tow as a man is pulled aside and punched repeatedly outside Grace Baptist Church in late June. "Your church is going up in flames tonight," a protester can be heard yelling off-camera, the Times-Union, a local paper reported. Police say no arrests have been made.

    What caused the company to change its mind?Colt Manufacturing Company has begun to sell its popular AR-15 modern sporting rifle to civilians again. In June, the company did a complete 180-degree turn after it had exited the civilian market for modern sporting rifles last September. At that time, the company announced via a statement from its president and CEO Dennis Veilleux, “the market for modern sporting rifles has experienced significant excess manufacturing capacity. Given this level of manufacturing capacity, we believe there is adequate supply for modern sporting rifles for the foreseeable future.” However, Colt Manufacturing, which was founded by...

    With no police or security within sight, Mark and Patricia McCloskey stood with their backs to their house wielding a small pistol and an AR-15. The “peaceful protest” featured a screaming scrum of hundreds smashing down the gate to a privately-owned neighborhood as they poured onto the privately-owned street just a few feet from the McCloskey residence. Considering the many buildings the mobs in recent weeks have burned, the victims they have assaulted, and the neighborhoods they have destroyed, the McCloskeys determined to remain physically safe, if terrorized. The mob screamed at and taunted the McCloskeys. But it dared not...

    A controversial video went viral Monday showing President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump brandishing guns as a mostly peaceful group of reporters approached the White House. Trump held an AR-15 and Melania waved around a semiautomatic pistol as reporters neared the White House, presumably to ask questions. The reporters claimed they were just there for a press briefing, but Trump claims the reporters threatened to destroy his presidency and that his standing there with guns was simply a form of defense. “What do you want?” Trump is heard asking the reporters in the video. “We’re just here to ask...
