Obama begins smart gun push, targeting cops

And the police are not too thrilled about being guinea pigs for the idea:

Police officers in general, federal officers in particular, shouldnt be asked to be the guinea pigs in evaluating a firearm that nobodys even seen yet, said James Pasco, executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police. We have some very, very serious questions.

Smart guns are dumb.

Take your guns with no due process

A silly law proposed in California (of course) will allow your neighbor, boss, random healthcare professinoal or whoever to take out a “gun violence restraining order” for likely no reason.

Hunting with suppressors

Now legal in Oklahoma.

Chicks and guns

Cruz picks Carly

News here. I heard the press conference on the radio and he took way too long introducing her.

In Tennessee

Looks like our legislature finally got a pro-gun bill to Haslam’s desk, without it dying in committee. We’ll see how he reacts. NRA is encouraging you to contact his office and urge him to sign it.


Headline: Pepper Spray Flies During Trump Protest Clash in California

Four paragraphs in, you learn the spray was used on the pro-Trump contingent. If you read the headline and first few lines only, you’d think the opposite.

The impact of California’s ban on standard capacity magazines

None, at all. Also, Mr. and Mrs. America aren’t turning them in:

But experts and law enforcement cant point to any actual impact: no magazines turned in, and none seized as a direct result of the local large-magazine bans on the books.

Hillary and gun rights

She’s for them. She’s against them. Kinda depends on the audience.

Whistling shotgun slugs. That first shot looks to me like it may have gone over the berm.

Stossel Tries to Get a Gun Permit

In NYC. It goes about as well as you’d think:

ERMAHGERD booth babes

Some SJW at Jezebel is butthurt because an NRA exhibitor was wanting to hire cute, young and not pierced women to work the show floor. Just like you see at the show every year. Or any car, boat, motorcycle, insert thing guys like show on earth.

Sure, I see it as lacking in class and probably tasteless, but calling out the gun industry is very “meh”

In Colorado

The repeal of the ban on standard capacity magazines failed in the house.

Have a gun

Better yet, have two.

Don’t shoot fleeing burglars

First, you might go to jail. And second, they might just sue you:

A burglar who broke into a Dunkirk mans garage has filed a lawsuit against the homeowner for shooting him.

Authorities said David A. Bailey, now 31, of Albany, broke into the garage of Dunkirk resident David McLaughlin on April 21, 2014.

McLaughlin, now 33, fired gunshots at the intruder he saw fleeing from his property, in the 400 block of West Commerce Drive. One of the bullets hit Bailey in the left arm as he ran down an alley.

In September 2014, a Jay Superior Court jury found McLaughlin guilty of criminal recklessness in the shooting. Judge Max Ludy later sentenced the Dunkirk property owner to 60 days in jail, to be followed by four months on home detention.

How to get someone to not take your training class

Well, you made it further than I would have. I dunno if I’d have made it past the 9mm v. .45 stopping power thing.

Jerry Miculek: Still awesome

Heizer Defense Introduces the PKO-45. A 5+1 .45ACP that its only 0.8 inches thin. And the barrel is under the guide rod, which they say helps recoil. So, a pocket 45?

Troll level grandmaster

A NFA dealer had registered pipe bomb receivers, homemade claymores, and flamethrowers for sale at a local gun show to, basically, make fun of how silly gun laws are:


The Houston PD and ATF were not amused. But couldn’t do much about it.

Careful when traveling

The TSA found a record 73 guns in checked bags this week.

ATF changes to form 4473

A rundown on the changes right here. ATF would like you to know that, even if your state made it legal, it’s still a federal crime to smoke marijuana.

Vanderboegh update

David went and visited the man. His time is short.

If you can, donate at his webpage. There’s a donate button and address on the right sidebar.

Alpha Dog suppressor with a rail on it. So tactical they put more tactical on it. I hadn’t thought about LaserGrips hitting a suppressor. Interesting concept but I’m not so sure I’m keen on mounting stuff on a suppressor.

Caring for our veterans

The Gun Shots:

The VA has reportedly declared 260,381 veterans with fiduciary trustees to the background check system as mentally defective. According to the Congressional Research Service, more than 99 percent of all names reported to NICS as mental defective are provided by the VA.

This seems like a very big deal.

Like you and me, only better

NYC where only the rich are armed:

Somewhere, Big Tim Sullivan might be laughing. Over 100 years after the enactment of New York Citys handgun licensing law (commonly referred to as the Sullivan Act), the measure is still working as the political boss intended. That is to say, it is ensuring that New Yorkers who are well-connected, either by status or more nefarious channels, are able to arm themselves with handguns, while average residents remain at the mercy of the criminal element.


A piece on how now is the tipping point for gun control:

Most activists agree that there is a long fight ahead. Yet, as Rebecca Leber noted recently in the New Republic, it appears the issue of gun violence has crossed irrevocably into the mainstream. Gun control has the potential to be the deciding issue of 2016. And its Democrats, for a change, who stand to benefit, she writes.

The reality is that pools show the opposite. Peak gun control was achieved in the 1990s and has since been reigned in, with screams from democrats and the media (but I repeat myself). But, hey, if it gets them through the day to think like that . . .

It’s what commies do

Bernie Sanders doesn’t practice what he preaches when it comes to taxes.

Best guitar player?

Aunt B. says Clapton is not the best. He’s great but not the best. This topic can go off the rail quickly because, while Clapton is fantastic, I just don’t dig his style of music. I’m more of a Dimebag Darrell kind of guy.

Hillary Clinton and gun control

She’s not a fan of freedom and wants your guns.

And Chelsea Clinton says this would be prime time to change the supreme court for gun control, since Scalia has passed.
