    The single-shot firearm, which resembles a pen in size and shape, was found during X-ray screening of the man’s luggage at about 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 13, a representative for the TSA confirmed. Massachusetts State Police were called to the security checkpoint, where they interviewed the passenger. After speaking with police, the male traveler was allowed to continue through the airport and ultimately to his destination in Portland, Oregon — sans pen gun. He also would have been allowed to transport the item had he packed it properly in his checked baggage, the TSA said.

    Nearly 100 shots rang out near a recreation center in Mayor Jim Kenney’s (D) Philadelphia at approximately 7:00 p.m. Tuesday after at least two suspects opened fire. 6 ABC reported that “children were practicing sports” when two suspects exited a white SUV and opened fire. Five people were injured as a result. A teenage witness said, “We were just sitting there laughing and talking and after that, we heard two gunshots. We thought it was fireworks at first, so we didn’t run, but after that the automatic gun started going off, we all started running.” FOX 29 noted that there...
  • Mayor Lightfoot pledged $1 million for gun tips last year, but so far payouts are just over $10,000. ‘Headlines and PR don’t keep people alive,’ Arne Duncan says

    Under pressure to address skyrocketing street crime last summer, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced a $1 million reward program for people who report illegal guns. “I want you to know that I recognize that people are scared. People all over the city. This is the topic of conversation,” Lightfoot said as she announced the fund’s creation in July 2021. “Gun violence is holding us back from realizing our individual potential and our potential and greatness as a city.” In the year since Lightfoot announced the initiative, however, the city has only paid out $10,395 to tipsters, according to the police...

  • Adjustable gas plug: M1 Garand

    08/17/2022 11:31:47 AM PDT · by Tucsonican · 25 replies
    Vanity | Self
    I'm looking for feedback regarding adjustable gas plugs for an M1 Garand. M2 Ball and equivalents, like most other ammo, isn't all that easy to come by but I've been able to find plenty of 150gr 30-06 though it's generally at higher pressures than M2. My understanding is that an adjustable gas plug will allow me to dial in adjustments for modern,higher pressure ammo, heavier bullet weights, etc. If anyone has experience with, and recommendations regarding, these plugs I'd be happy to hear them.

    Politicians are the ones to blame for the surge in violence and lawlessness, and they seek to avoid any responsibility for the crisis of violence they have created by attempting to shift the blame to Smith & Wesson, other firearm manufacturers and law-abiding gun owners. But rather than confront the failure of their policies, certain politicians have sought more laws restricting the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens, while simultaneously continuing to undermine our institutions of law and order. And to suppress the truth, some now seek to prohibit firearm manufacturers and supporters of the 2nd Amendment from advertising products...

Prosecutors have not yet decided if any charges will be filed in the case, saying they would review the latest reports and were awaiting cell...

    With just days remaining until new federal rules will effectively ban so-called ghost guns on Aug. 24, many companies are scrambling to sell parts needed to make the largely untraceable firearms — and gun enthusiasts continue to build them. In April, President Joe Biden announced new regulations that will treat ghost guns — which can be made from parts bought online or with 3D printers — like any other firearms sold in the U.S. Online, many websites that sell ghost gun parts have posted countdowns to the date the rule takes effect and have posted information for enthusiasts who want...
