    HOUSTON – Former Houston police officers Gerald Goines, 55, and Steven Bryant, 46, were both arrested on federal charges Wednesday morning in connection with the botched January Harding Street raid that left two people dead, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The woman who called 911, Patricia Garcia, 53, has also been charged. On Jan. 28, Rhogena Nicholas and Dennis Tuttle were killed when several police officers burst into their home at 7851 Harding Street. After officers shot the couple’s dog, Tuttle began firing at officers and they returned fire, killing both Nicholas and Tuttle, officials say. Five HPD...

    Heinrich Krieghoff was in Sewanee, Germany, where he demonstrated a gas-operated rifle to Adolph Hitler, Hermann Göring, Rudolf Hess and Paul von Hindenberg, possibly to gain favor for a military contract, which he received the following year to produce 10,000 Luger pistols. It is believed that Krieghoff offered Neptune Drillings to Göring and Hitler at this time. We do know that Göring, a German politician, military leader and leading member of the Nazi Party, owned a Kreighoff Drilling, which has been documented in books and period photos, and has his initials, H.G., engraved in the same location – bottom of...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden has been all over the place when it comes to his stance on guns and the Second Amendment, although we know he's no friend to gun owners. Just last month he admitted he would favor a national registry for "assault weapons." He's repeatedly championed the idea of "smart guns," even though the technology doesn't exist. But remember: he continually talks about his shotgun. Biden made another really dumb yet scary comment during a swanky fundraiser hosted by an Amazon executive in Seattle, Washington this weekend. For $2,800 a head, you too could hear the former...
  • Tacoma Gun & Ammunition Tax Passes City Council Unanimously

    On 12 November 2019, the Tacoma City Council passed its controversial tax on guns and ammunition. The tax is based on a similar tax in Seattle.  The vote was unanimous, 8-0. 112 people were reported to have spoken on the issue. To an ordinary reader, the tax would seem to violate the Washington State preemption law. The Washington Supreme Court held differently in 2017. It voted that a tax was not a regulation. One judge dissented, writing it was obvious the tax was aimed specifically at firearms. From the opinion: That different inquiry centers on the language of the preemption...

    As gun policy discussions unfold in the wake of mass shooter incidents, they routinely end in three buckets. There’s the “tyranny can never happen here” bucket, which the left has mostly abdicated in the wake of Trump winning after they called (and still call) him a tyrant. There’s the “you can’t fight the army with small arms” bucket, which is increasingly unsound given our ongoing decade-and-a-half war with Afghani tribal goat herders. And there’s the “what the hell do you need an AR-15 for anyway?” bucket, which, by its very language, eschews a fundamental lack of understanding of what those...

    An Arizona man pleaded guilty Tuesday in a U.S. court in Nevada to illegally manufacturing tracer and armor-piercing bullets found in a hotel room where a gunman carried out the Las Vegas Strip massacre two years ago. Douglas Haig, 57, was not accused of a direct role in the Oct. 1, 2017, shooting that killed 58 people and injured more than 850 at an open-air music festival. Prosecutors never alleged that he had advance knowledge of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. “Doug had no indication whatsoever about Stephen Paddock’s plans,” defense attorney Marc Victor said, invoking the...

    A state senator from Luzerne County said Tuesday he is changing his party registration from the Democratic Party to become an Independent, and will start attending caucus meeting in Harrisburg with the majority Republicans. John Yudichak said in a statement that he is leaving his old party because he is weary of “'purist' politicians who demand that you choose a battle camp. You must pass their litmus test, and declare if you support ‘us,’ or ‘them.’"

    In an insightful segment during Monday’s NBC Nightly News, the network actually seemed to approach protecting schools from shooters with an open mind. Correspondent Gadi Schwartz joined a group of school teachers in Spanish Fort, Utah as they underwent firearms training with the local sheriff’s department, a new program they were running. “Just days after yet another school shooting in America, tonight we want to show you teachers training for a life or death confrontation in the classroom,” anchor Lester Holt declared as the video portion on the segment began. “NBC's Gadi Schwartz on the internal struggle the teachers face.”...

    The 300 Blackout AR-15 Build GuideI've had questions come through from a builder or two about 300 Blackout and its compatibility with existing build kits, parts, and the AR-15 platform. This is a dual-purpose round originally developed for the U.S Military's M4 platform by request of overseas operators. Advanced Armament Corp. (AAC) developed the round for approval by SAAMI in 2011. 300 BLK provides ballistic performance similar to 7.62x39mm and affords a shooter the ability to fire supersonic or subsonic cartridges (suppressed or un-suppressed) without any modifications made to the rifle or pistol. This quick little guide explains the 300...

    Univision led off its Engligh-language newscast, UNews on Fusion, with a brief report on the shooting at Walmart in Duncan, Oklahoma. However, the network left off a critical element of the story; one that happens to be most inconvenient to its agenda. Watch below as anchor Carolina Sarassa delivered the report that omitted what many other local and national outlets had reported by then: the confrontation of the shooter by an armed citizen: We begin today with details on yet another shooting. This time, outside a Wal-Mart in Duncan, Oklahoma. The police chief says two men and a woman have...

    On 12 November, 2019, another semi-retired District Judge, in the Western District of Washington (Seattle), continued the judicial resistance against the Trump administration and the rule of law.  Senior Judge Lasnik was appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1998. The Judge, Robert S. Lasnik, ruled the Department of State violated administrative procedure by deciding the ability of individuals to make simple small arms, already widely available, was not a “critical defense item” in the expansive International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) regulations.The Department of State had reached this decision as part of a long running lawsuit brought by Defense Distributed...

    Chicago S-T ^ | 18 nov 2019
    The Chicago plaintiffs in the case that Gottschall is allowing to move forward argue that incessant gun violence in some neighborhoods causes psychological harm to children. That’s the federal civil rights argument the plaintiffs believe should force the state to take action. Specifically — among other reforms — the plaintiffs are calling for the creation of a “do not sell” list that generally would prevent people who have bought a gun that was used in a crime from buying another. That change in the law could cut down on the number of straw purchasers who buy firearms for others who...

    People from New Zealand are affectionately know as Kiwis. There is a strong gun culture in New Zealand. It has been there since the beginning. The Maori tribesman, warriors (and cannibals), took to guns more quickly than nearly any other technology the British brought to the islands. The British were not wimps when it came to warfare. The nation of farmers, hunters, fishers and warriors kept their guns and had little regulation for a hundred and fifty years.   With the British push for gun control after WWI, handguns came to be registered and regulated.  With that regulation, the courts...
