An interesting NFA case in Oregon

A gun shop submits his paper work for a Glock 18, complete with sheriff’s letter. ATF processes the paperwork. Then ATF notices the sheriff’s letter was out of date. So, they want to seize the gun from the shop.

ATF can’t get paperwork right. No big deal for them. If you get the paperwork wrong, it’s a big deal for you.

And reading through the article, it seems the dealer and sheriff just wanted to be able to get some cool toys.

Democrats say they’ll oppose pro gun laws


Peter Ambler, executive director of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a gun control super PAC, said his organization plans to fight national reciprocity “tooth and nail,” threatening a Democratic filibuster of the legislation in the Senate. Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat and ardent gun-control advocate, said he believes any version of a national reciprocity bill would be “dead on arrival” in the Senate, due to strong Democratic opposition.

Peruta is going to the Supreme Court

And the NRA is happy about it.

About the NYPD and their Glocks

No, there won’t be a G19L. Looks like the NYPD is just neutering their magazines. There would have been a market for the latter.

Pressuring Roberts

It has been speculated that some thing was held over Justice Roberts to get him to do whatever it was he did in ruling for Obamacare. Well, some Podesta emails seem to confirm that.

So, they won’t sell to any country then?

H&K will no longer sell weapons to countries not in NATO. This bit amused me:

The company, one of the world’s best-known gunmakers, will in future only sell to countries that are democratic and free from corruption and that are members of NATO or NATO members’ partners, DPA said, citing company sources.

Record gun sales. Again, still.

A record in gun sales on Black Friday.

Somewhere in a newsroom earlier today

*Reports come in that Ohio State University is reporting an active shooter on campus*

“Quick, gin up our prepared in advance gun violence, mass shooting, AR-15s are the devil narrative. Yeah, and call in those fake experts we get to come in and scare everyone about gun violence, mass shootings and AR-15s and tell them to put on their pantsuits and bowties for the TeeVee tonight”

“Oh, while we’re at it, listen to those police scanners and get the suspect’s name and look for him on facebook to see if he’s a Trump voter or has ties to the Tea Party”

*time passes. Bloviating on TeeVee ensues*

“Sir, new information. Yeah, there was no shooting. Turns out the guy used a car and a butcher knife

“Well, we can’t run with the original plan. Anything else?”

“Yeah, the suspect is a Somali guy with a funny name.”

*mumble mumble*

Update: Meanwhile, Shannon Watts beclowns herself.

And I laughed:


Quote of the day

Wayne LaPierre:

This is our historic moment to go on offense

Assuming Trump dances with who brung him.

Via Knoxviews, who is none too happy.

No one I know who’s been in a gunfight has ever said “I wish I had less ammo”

The NYPD is issuing Glock 17s with 15 round magazines:

The gun, as designed, can hold 17-round magazines two more than the Glock 19. But the NYPD had the manufacturer customize the Glock 17s to carry only 15 rounds so it would be consistent with the interchangeable Glock 19 magazine.

The lack of logic in this astounds me.

Long range anti-drone gun

And, of course, they strap it to an AR.

And it probably still works

Goes fishing. Catches a Glock.

Surprised this was at the HuffPo

Background Check Laws May Actually Interfere With Suicide Prevention Efforts.

The make the case that states that have required checks for all transfers may lead someone who is suicidal to not give their guns to family members.

Life in the future

A bionic penis.

This does not warrant a “the future is stupid” tag as I can see this benefiting some people.

Time travel is possible

So say some scientists. Of course it is. I’m traveling into the future as we speak.

A handgun starter kit

Sounds like a good idea. Getting fully into carrying guns can be expensive. Switching guns is expensive too.

Gun sales are up: Women and minorities hardest hit

Women are propelling gun sales to all time highs:

FBI figures show the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is running more checks than ever before. Nearly 25 million background checks will have been completed by years end.

By proxy, that means more guns being sold than before and local shops say their sales are getting better every year.

A key group driving sales women.

Women are helping propel firearm background checks and gun sales to an all-time high.

And Trump’s victory supposedly leading to minorities buying guns:

After Donald Trump’s win, Yolanda Scott is upgrading the crowbar she keeps in her purse to a small-caliber pistol.

Scott, an African-American, is one of many minorities who have been flocking to gun stores to protect themselves, afraid Trump’s victory will incite more hate crimes.

Yeah, all those riots out there by those Trump supporters are startling. Oh, wait.

Bleg: Getting out

With the way Google tracks everything and the way the want to ban anything that I like, like gun stuff, what other options are available? I mean, a full service solution for email, calendar, phone, everything. I’ve never cared for Apple products and don’t really dig how they treat their devices or customers. The windows phone and computer combo seems workable but its dearth of comparable apps available is limiting.

Is there anything I’m missing?


The Pentagon recently released detailed guidance that allows U.S. military personnel to carry privately owned, concealed firearms on base, a move that the Army’s service chief argued against publicly.

“Arming and the Use of Force,” a Nov. 18 Defense Department directive approved by Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work, lays out the policy and standards that allow DoD personnel to carry firearms and employ deadly force while performing official duties.

If they can be trusted with guns on a battlefield, they can be trusted with them at work.

Things I didn’t know

You can make money and youtube. And, being owned by Google, they’re cutting that out if your videos are gun related.

A gun lawsuit to watch

At 16, a teen was committed to a mental facility because he was thought to be suicidal. At 16, obviously not an adult. At the age of 21, he went to buy a gun. He was denied and charged with lying on the form to purchase. He wants his gun rights restored and is suing.
