More black women are getting guns

Because Trump and racism: More black women are learning to use guns: ‘this is a movement, and it starts now’

It’s always good to see more people taking their self defense seriously.

Discretionary permitting

In NY: Ex-NYPD officers took cash, prostitutes in gun license bribe scandal

Making something hard to get often turns it into a business.

Anti-gun poll says NRA overrun by lobbyists

As the dude says: I, for one, want them to be overrun by lobbyists. Thats what I pay them for.

“Journalism”

The Paper of Making Up The Record:

The analysis was published by The Trace, a nonprofit news organization focused on gun violence. It found that cases of road rage involving a firearm where someone brandished a gun or fired one at a driver or passenger more than doubled to 620 in 2016, from 247 in 2014.

Sure, they are.

And Newsweek:

TRUMPS PROPOSED TAX PLAN COULD COST THE GOVERNMENT $6 TRILLION.

Uhm, do you guys know what “cost” means?

SilencerCo Maxim 9 is now for sale

It comes in at $1,500. But an integrally suppressed 9mm pistol is a pretty cool thing.

Are now OK for the police?

The defense would like to call noted gun expert Joe Biden to the stand

A teenager fired a shotgun through the front door, hoping to scare off intruders. The intruders were cops.

They guy was just following Joe Biden’s advice.

Guns at the Supreme Court

Is This the Supreme Court’s Next Big Second Amendment Case?

The case is Peruta v. California, which challenges the good cause requirement.

ATF changes mind on stabilizing brace again. Still

It’s said that these people get to decide what can actually land a person in jail. A bit back, they gave stabilizing braces approval. Then, in a really stupid letter, said that if you shouldered one, that made it a SBR. Well, they’ve gone and changed their mind again:

SB Tactical, inventors and manufacturers of the Pistol Stabilizing Brace, is excited to announce that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) has issued SB Tactical a reversal letter containing a sensible clarification of the Bureaus position on the lawful use of SB Tactical braces.

The new clarification of opinion letter states, an NFA firearm has not necessarily been made when the device is not reconfigured for use as a shoulder stock even if the attached firearm happens to be fired from the shoulder. To the extent that the January 2015 Open Letter implied or has been construed to hold that incidental, sporadic, or situational use of an arm-brace (in its original approved configuration) equipped firearm from a firing position at or near the shoulder was sufficient to constitute redesign, such interpretations are incorrect and not consistent with ATFs interpretation of the statute or the manner in which it has historically been enforced.

Tam thinks something is afoot: The extent to which these three factoids are related is an exercise left up to the reader.

Neat

Robb’s home made 1911 grips. And, of course, the internet is full of assholes.

That’s one thing I like about Republicans: When they lose, they go away

Why cant the Clintons just go away?

Journalism

A long time gun rights hater decides to actually meet gun owners. Novel.

You shouldn’t go robbing people. Someone will take your gun away and use it on you.

WKRN:

Metro police told News 2 a group of people were inside the store when at least three armed suspects came in through an unlocked back door and began firing.

Witnesses said one of the people in the group was able to wrestle one of the suspects gun away and exchanged fired with at least one person.

The person scored shots on all three, killing one. Well done.

Gun salesman of the century #2

S&W and Ruger stock prices rise as people are buying more guns.

Glock Rumors

A Glock Gen 5. Or a Glock 17M?.

Lefties and guns

So, I mentioned a bit back a group of armed protesters at a Trump rally. Well, it seems they’re organized as the Redneck Revolt. And they’ve got a video of themselves practicing at the range:

That is some serious sheep-hitting. Seriously, some of them look like they know what they’re doing. Others, not so much.

Not sure if serious

So, you use this cover for your gun when you’re open carrying. To make your XD look like a Glock. WITAF?

Bloomberg has spent $135M to fight against civil rights.

Speaking of Chicago: That community could use some organizing

Chicago accounts for nearly 30% of the increase in urban murders. And the city was responsible for 43.7 percent of the rise in urban murders in 2016.

Good thing Barry is on his way to organize that community.

Terrifying

The Chicago PD thinks taking a black powder gun off the street is something worth bragging about.

Life in the future

A $400 juicer that connects to the internet for some reason.

The future is stupid.

Due process win

Reason:

This week the Supreme Court ruled that Colorado has no right to keep fines, fees, court costs, and restitution it extracts from criminal defendants whose convictions are later reversed. By forcing people to prove their innocence before they can get back property that is rightly theirs, the Court said, Colorado has been violating the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of due process.

Hopefully, civil asset forfeiture is on the chopping block.
