  • “Your Racist If You Oppose HR 1”: How Democrats Plan To Pass It

    They are dishonestly attacking the Georgia legislation as a throwback to the Jim Crow era, while simultaneously assailing the Senate filibuster as “racist” as well. Those are two vital elements of the grand plan to ram the federal election-takeover legislation, HR 1, the euphemistically titled “For the People Act,” through Congress. The true intent of the legislation—and the road map to get it to Biden’s desk—is to weaken election security and to cement liberals’ hold on power for decades.

    Just putting it out there. I know there are rallies at certain cities voting area, but my wish is that we, the deplorables, chumps, etc should get out and have the boat parades, car, parades, etc all over the country. Believe it will give our President that we are with him and the Democrats a message that we are not sitting idle and let them do it.

    What pain drives men to suffer the pangs of war... too, send their best and brightest to stand before the sword... too, bleed red the earth. Where comes this driving force and its counsel to war... to war, in our streets and back yards, where our children will reap of the steel of man's rain. Shall we not suffer long for such a reproach before God.... too, drive our swords into the very heart of our brothers? Where comes this silent killer to steal their innocence, to reap the tears of our daughters... and harvest the strength of our young...

    . Now that celebs like Tom Hanks and others reportedly have this so-called “corona virus,” the walking, butt-end of the American public, who thinks Hanks is a real person, might finally grasp what’s being done to them. That is—what’s being done to the public. By the maniac spin-masters who still raven to “get Trump,” at any cost, including poisoning the truth, the “news,” bringing down all of America, wrecking the future, and destroying anybody who seems to be in their way. As a wise woman said to me, “Now they can watch.” Meaning, they can see if Tom Hanks dies...

    Most CCW full size 9mm pistols carries 15 + 1 in the pipe, which has become the norm. Springfield Armory has come out with the Hellcat pistol. This pistol is considered to be the smallest compact with the highest capacity ever. With 11+1 in the chamber, this CCW pistol is not just a rinky dink pocket gun. Hellcat also comes in 13+1 extended magazine as well. Hellcat Sights Another thing that you’ll see on this piece of micro-compact 9mm, is that the slide is cut for 2 micro red-dot.

    (Summary: In many ways, public schools seem deliberately organized to diminish intellect, not to enlarge it.)An acquaintance sent this note: “My sister tells of teaching math to college freshmen. The question was: If X plus 5 = 10, what is the value of X? It took her an entire week to get the kids to finally say ‘5.’ So the following Monday, just on a hunch, she gave them another problem: If Y plus 5 = 10, what is the value of Y? And no one could answer!” Remember, these students have been admitted to a community college. Presumably, many...

    We all like to see things go kaboom and like shooting a shotgun. So, did you know theres an exploding shotgun round that can satisfy this passion? Well I introduce to you the Frag12 T17 12 GAUGE High Explosive (HE) round. The concept is the same as the 40mm HE round thats fired from the military M-203 grenade launcher. In this case the shotgun slug Frag12 projectile is embedded into the slug. Once the primer is hit the projectile is launched and the warhead arms itself at 3 meters while in flight and detonates upon impact. There are three different...

    The German MP40 submachine gun (Schmeisser) was a weapon our Allied Forces feared in World War II. The MP 40 was a submachine gun chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge and an open-bolt, blowback-operated automatic arms. It was developed in Nazi Germany and used extensively by the Axis powers during the Second World War. This weapon shot from a standard 32-round box magazine and the caliber was the standard 9x19mm Parabellum. Manufactured in Germany from 1940-1945, there were roughly 1.1 million of them manufactured. Weighing just under 9 pounds, this submachine gun was not light. With a cyclic rate of...

    Considering the outrage against semiautomatic rifles in the news lately, some might question the sanity of a recommendation for the AR platform. Let me explain. FIRST, FROM THE historical side of it. The group of people I put as the best ever overall citizens in the United States who used guns in their daily lives were the pioneers of the 1800s traveling west in covered wagons and building homes in the open prairie. It was not uncommon for them to have the newest weaponry of some kind of single-action sixshooter like a Colt, a double-barreled shotgun (usually under 16 inches...

    In days of yore, I might have pointed my doubters – usually women and seniors – toward a SIG P238, a Walther PK 380 or, more recently, a Glock 42. But each of those came with caveats related either to cost (SIGs are pricey), functionality (Walthers are a pain to break down) or useability (for better or worse, beginners are skittish about Glock’s lack of a manual external safety – thankfully, most of them eventually get over that!). Now, however, I smile slyly and trot out Smith & Wesson’s most recent contribution to the concealed carry market – the M&P...
  • Why isn’t more people using the 20 Gauge for Home Defense?

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 8/29/2018 | C Baker
    If you can give up a small perceived ballistic advantage and in exchange, get the ability shoot the gun better, that's a worthwhile trade-off. But even so, I don’t usually recommend a 20 gauge shotgun over a 12 gauge for home defense. And not because it isn't powerful enough. It has a lot more to do with the lack of industry support for the 20 gauge. The shotguns you can buy today that are set up for self-defense are almost all based on shotguns used by law enforcement and the military. For the last century or more, almost 100% of...

    The wife of a Virginia police officer is speaking out about the McDonald’s employee who refused to serve him, but she claims she never wanted the young employee to lose his job. Last week, Officer Scott Naff of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries was denied service by a young McDonald’s drive-thru worker, who took one look at Naff in his uniform and stated, “I ain’t serving no cops.” “My husband, of course, was shocked,” said Cathy Naff during an interview on Friday morning’s edition of “Fox and Friends.” “He said, ‘I’m sorry, what did you say?’ And...
