What’s in a headline?

Headline: Some Chicago gangs turning to rifles for added firepower, police say

Yeah, it went from a whopping 3 in one month to 9 two months later.

Here’s hoping

Cruz says there will be another SCOTUS opening this summer.

Teaching kids to safely handle dangerous things

Imagine, if you changed what this guy is doing from “fire” to “firearm”, what the NY Times would be writing.

Truth in the media about guns

Actual headline: Court says a gun’s looks matter more than its function (yes, really)

Justice department to go after legal weed

While the law is an ass, I would think the government had better shit to do than this:

The White House said Thursday it expects law enforcement agents to enforce federal marijuana laws when they come into conflict with states where recreational use of the drug is permitted.

“I do believe you will see greater enforcement of it,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said regarding federal drug laws, which still list marijuana as an illegal substance.

That’s a reversal from the Obama administration’s stance, which laid out in an official memo that the federal government wouldn’t interfere in states where nonmedical use of marijuana is allowed.

Marijuana is still banned at the federal level. And the feds still enforce law. I guess this could be the path to seeing it repealed at the federal level.

Well, OK

Apparently, the heads of Lego figures are .40 caliber. So, you knew someone was going to try to shoot with them right?

Good for Cruz

He’s on board for getting the Republicans to support asset forfeiture reform.

Usain Bolt can run really fast. So no one needs athletic shoes

The Trace is asking if the AR-15 is a weapon of war. As evidence, the show a youtube of Jerry Miculek breaking a world record with 5 shots, 5 targets in one second.


Gun rights people need to know what we’re up against and it’s mostly the courts.

ICE and Home Security getting new handguns

Surprise. It’s a Sig P320. Also, rumor on the local boards is that the Oak Ridge Police Department recently switched to them.

ATF running a cigarette selling operation

The New York Times:

Working from an office suite behind a Burger King in southern Virginia, operatives used a web of shadowy cigarette sales to funnel tens of millions of dollars into a secret bank account. They werent known smugglers, but rather agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The operation, not authorized under Justice Department rules, gave agents an off-the-books way to finance undercover investigations and pay informants without the usual cumbersome paperwork and close oversight, according to court records and people close to the operation.

The secret account is at the heart of a federal racketeering lawsuit brought by a collective of tobacco farmers who say they were swindled out of $24 million. A pair of A.T.F. informants received at least $1 million each from that sum, records show.

Good to see they don’t just screw over gun owners.

Solution in search of a problem

I get that some people have a desire to keep their guns locked up or otherwise disabled, like folks with small children. But Zore seems a bit silly. It’s, basically, a locking mechanism based on a dummy round that locks the gun. A rotating dial is used to lock and unlock it.

And you can open it with their app.

Maybe someone has a good use for it. But I can think of a lot of solutions that cost less and are actually for sale.

On the Taurus Judge

Here’s a video of a gun fight involving one:

That cop really didn’t want to shoot that guy. But he likely should have done it sooner.

I see what you did there

Over at The Gun Feed, this made me laugh:

Assault glasses

In Boston, drinking glasses may get banned after assaults. Massachusetts: Live free or there.

News you can use

How to Reload a Semi-Automatic Pistol. The auto-forward is not a feature. But it seems to work reliably in one of my guns. I’m also an advocate of gripping the slide as I find that my thumb sometimes doesn’t quite get enough purchase on the slide stop.

And you know what they call a bundle of sticks

Or is that cigarettes?

Ah, where Great Britain used to be: the latest campaign to Make Britain Safe Again.

On those mass shooting numbers

The database that the media and the democrats (but I repeat myself) is off by a factor of 10.

That greedy soda industry

That is, of course, who politicians blame when the tax they passed costs people their jobs:

One of the citys largest beverage distributors is planning to cut 20 percent of its workforce; grocery stores across the city are also planning to shed jobs.

Seriously, the mayor is an idiot.

In New Hampshire

Permitless carry becomes the law. I hadn’t noticed but when did the NRA start calling it “constitutional carry”?

Fourth Circuit upholds gun and magazine ban

The Baltimore Sun:

“We are convinced that the banned assault weapons and large-capacity magazines are among those arms that are “like” “M-16 rifles” ‘weapons that are most useful in military service’ which the Heller Court singled out as being beyond the Second Amendment’s reach,” Judge Robert B. King wrote for the court. Four other courts have upheld similar restrictions in other states, King wrote.

You may be convinced but you are wrong.

The Republicans are making an effort on guns

Hearing protection act in the works. Rubio wanting to restore gun rights in DC. And, now, a bill to allow the reimportation and sale of M1 Carbines loaned to South Korea.

Guess who else opposed the social security gun ban?

Those crazy right-wingers at the ACLU.

Making Gun Reviews That Dont Suck

Chris Baker:

If youre not going to bother to get out a shot timer and write down some numbers, dont tell me that a gun is capable of quick follow-up shots or that it has manageable recoil. Without any kind of objective measurement, those statements are meaningless to the audience.

When seconds count . . .

The police are minutes err hours away:

The Detroit Police Department is launching an internal investigation and admitting mistakes were made after a family was stuck in their home with an intruder for more than 30 minutes.

Officers didnt arrive until hours later.

Speaking of revolvers

Five Reasons to Own Sixguns. In my experience, they’ve improved my shooting ability with other guns. After several cylinders through, a trigger on a plastic gun seems much more manageable.
