I was told he was good on guns

Trump’s lawyers are asking SCOTUS to reject the second amendment claim of non violent felons, who committed their crimes 20 years ago:

But the Justice Department under Trump has embraced the same position in this case that was adopted under President Obama: to defend strict enforcement of a long-standing federal law that bars convicted criminals from ever owning a gun, even when their crimes did not involve violence.

I’m not a fan of this move by the Justice Department.

Stick to your gun issues

I agree. The NRA should be single issue. Advancing positions on other issues may scare away people who are otherwise sympathetic to the cause.

Of course, they are.

Great resource

I’ve really been enjoying Greg Ellifritz’s series called the Weekend Knowledge Dump. Go there and get some clue.

Worth every penny

I have the Apex Tactical Armorer’s Block. It works on both Glocks and M&Ps. ShootingIllustrated has a write up here.

I used mine extensively when I was installing various Apex trigger upgrades to the Morrissey.

Do you even Google, bro?

Like you and me, only better

NewsOK:

A bill to allow certain military members to carry handguns in Oklahoma communities without a handgun license has been signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin.

I really don’t have a problem with this. But if they can be exempted, I’d say your average gun owner could be too.

Interesting

Seen at Joe’s:

In 2015, NICS denied 106,556 background checks. In 3,625 cases, a denial was overturned on appeal.

I was also unaware that in October 2015, they stopped processing appeals.

Registration leads to . . .

Someone may have hacked into Florida’s database of carry permit holders. And they may have info on 16,000 gun owners.

Report: Regulation Has Essentially Ground to a Halt Under Trump

I wouldn’t call it grinding to a halt. It’s just that there are significantly fewer new regulations being approved since Trump has been elected. But it is a start.

Airsoft meets an AK

This looks like a terrible way to put an optic on an AK. It doesn’t co-witness. You’d have to take the sight off to clean it. Then re-zero. The Ultimak is clearly a better solution, if you’re into AKs.

You can have my drone

When you pry it from my cold dead hands.

The FAA was trying to register drones. Well, someone sued them over it and the court ruled the FAA doesn’t have the authority to regulate drones. Good.

Quote of the day

Nancy Pelosi continues her downward spiral:

To have a president say, if he did, to the director of the FBI, or the DNI, the Director of National Intelligence, or the NRA person thatum, uh, that they should not go forward, it raises questions that need to be answered in a facts and law way, and not hearsay

Who knew we had that much power?

Interesting to me the suppressor actually increased the bullet speed:

Magazine rebuild kits

Apparently, some companies were marketing those as legal in California. And San Francisco sued them over it:

Five online gun equipment suppliers have agreed to stop selling or advertising large-capacity firearm magazines or magazine repair kits to California customers in a settlement of a lawsuit filed by the San Francisco City Attorneys Office.

City Attorney Dennis Herrera sued the companies in February, alleging that they were selling large-capacity magazines, some of which can hold more than 100 rounds of ammunition, in a disassembled state as repair or rebuild kits, and falsely claimed that they were legal in California.

Tam:

Light, off-center primer strikes caused by a failure to go completely into battery. This happened six times in thirty rounds. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Glock’s reputation for reliability is built on their 9mm guns. The further away from the 17 you get, the more chance there is that there will be special issues.

I can only recall my G30 failing once. It’s a .45. Pulled the trigger and heard a click, not a boom. But I didn’t fire several thousand rounds in it without cleaning.
