What’s your home defense gun choice?

Massad Ayoob would like to know. I have four various M&P9s in particular places. And quick access to an AR-15.

But they have all that gun control

That’s why the bad guys had to use grenades

There’s also some AK 47s

Only the government should have guns

The US lost hundreds of thousands of guns in Iraq and Afghanistan.

A look at the convoluted restrictions in the MA AG’s unilateral decision to change the gun laws. At least they figured out they needed to finally add the term “rimfire” to their 22 caliber bit.

How times have changed

In the fight against the MA AG’s unilateral decision to make thousands of people criminals by redefining the law, Smith and Wesson has ponied up a half a million:

Among Healeys critics is Springfield-based gun maker Smith & Wesson.

Earlier this month, CEO James Debney said the company made a $500,000 contribution to the Connecticut-based National Shooting Sports Foundation, a firearms industry association, to help with its voter registration and education campaign.

Debney said the company made the contribution on behalf of law-abiding firearm owners of Massachusetts, who have so recently been denied their fundamental rights through arbitrary government action that threatens to turn lawful gun owners and dealers into criminals.

The foundation is considering challenging Healeys actions in court.

I guess I’ll have to add another Smith to The Morrissey.

Advice that might save your life

From Tam:

Once the cops have been called, you don’t need to be running around outside with a gun in your hand.

Read it all. One time, I had put alarms in some houses after a spate of copper thefts. An alarm went of at OMG thirty and the police were notified, as was I. I grabbed a holstered gun and headed that way. And, after a few miles down the road, thought that having that gun on my hip probably wasn’t the best idea. I called the police to tell them I was going to be there, what I was driving, what I was wearing, and THAT I HAD A HOLSTERED GUN. They were expecting to see me and nothing bad happened.

And I agree with Tam on those targets. Cool gut shot, bro:


The TSA at work

They detained a 9 year old because he had a pacemaker.

Smith and Wesson Rumors

They’ve filed for a trademark for M2.0. Rumors are that they may be coming out with an upgraded M&P pistol line:

A source who wishes to remain anonymous told us the new pistol line is to be dubbed M2.0. M2.0 is a response to criticisms of the original M&P series pistols, and is designed with a host of features that will allow the M&P series to better compete with stock Glocks. Our source cited changes to the design, including an improved trigger and full-length guide rails, intended to increase overall functionality, reliability, and out-the-box accuracy.

Well, darn. I may have to add to the Morrissey.

Those militant tea partiers

A couple of bits of good news

Justice Department Says Poor Can’t Be Held When They Can’t Afford Bail: Violates equal protection. So it’s not just freedom for those who can afford it.

Is there an echo in here?

Are you so wrapped up in your views that everyone around you shares them?

And I think that we could soon see suppressors regulated as firearms. The scare factor around them seems to be fading. And there are now record sales of the things.

Prepping your car

Glenn has some solid advice here on being prepared while in your vehicle. I keep a bag with similar stuff. I should probably take his advice on getting food that no one would ever eat unless they had to because I find myself snacking on my fish and peanuts and pork cracklins quite often.

I’d also throw in that having a ResQMe on hand is a good idea too.

Of course, it’s the Tea Party

This is how the US military would put down an armed rebellion. The seem to have several presumptions that I don’t know would hold up. I’m guessing that sort of uprising would be less inclined to take and hold a location.

About that Glock recall

Turns out, just a few Glocks were having the issue. The recall was done out of safety concerns.

August 19, 2016

Police recall new Glock?

So reports the firearm blog:

The Firearm Blogs source within the department declined to be named and only spoke on the condition of anonymity about the problems. Our source stated that the slides were falling off during dry fire training due to a potential issue with the recoil spring assembly and/or the slide stop. IMPD has recalled all issued Glock 17Ms to include the one that TFB was leaked photos of due to the problem.

I’m not sure those would be the sources of this type of issue.

And, also, really, guys, this story is not “breaking”.

Live free or there

The MA AG has released a list of what is not an assault weapon. I guess assume everything else is?

If you’re in MA, do you go by the letter of the law or by the interpretation of some lawyer?

The Trumpening: Trump shoots an M4

So reports the AP. I’d like to see pictures of that.

There’s a flood, 13 dead, 40,000 homes destroyed. Time for action.

And that action, from Obama, is, apparently, to remind everyone not to discriminate.

In Venezuela

A country that’s on the brink of financial collapse decided to destroy a bunch of guns:

Venezuelan police crushed and chopped up nearly 2,000 shotguns and pistols in a Caracas city square on Wednesday, as the new interior minister relaunched a long-stalled gun control campaign in one of the world’s most crime-ridden countries.

Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the event marked the renewal of efforts to disarm Venezuelans, through a combination of seizures and a voluntary program to swap guns for electrical goods.

Venezuela has the world’s second highest murder rate and the street gangs that plague its poor neighborhoods have become increasingly heavily armed in recent years, at a time when a deep recession has reduced resources available to police.



I wouldn’t want that guy having a gun either.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
