I don’t think giving the police the power to shut down people’s phones without cause is a good idea.

Tennessee Hearing Protection Act

It has passed the House and the Senate. Tennessee law now is basically a duplication of federal NFA laws. So, the state bans suppressors. However, it is an affirmative defense to prosecution that you jumped through all the federal hoops and have a tax stamp. So, if the national Hearing Protection Act passes, Tennessee should be good.

Good advice

Lock your damn doors.

My kids always, in an annoyed tone, ask: Why do you always lock the doors? And I respond with So I don’t have to shoot anyone. I also lock my truck doors. Just the other week, someone broke into several vehicles around here. Just the unlocked ones. I have video of the perp trying to open my truck, realizing they were locked, and leaving. It works.

Heckler & Koch to build a gun factory in Georgia

So reports Spiegel Online. You’ll have to translate it to English. But basically, they’re spending $23M on their first factory abroad. And they like Trump’s trade policies.

Gun sales are still strong

After the Gun Salesman of the Century left office, folks thought gun sales would drop. However, they continue to remain near record levels.

Very cool

Pete Brownell has been elected President of the NRA.

SAF to challenge California magazine ban

From their webpage:

The Second Amendment Foundation, joined by several other groups and individuals, today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in California, challenging that states law prohibiting the possession, use or acquisition of so-called large capacity magazines, calling the ban hopelessly vague and ambiguous.

Joining SAF are the Calguns Foundation, Firearms Policy Coalition, Firearms Policy Foundation and six individuals including one retired California peace officer. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California.

The complaint is a constitutional challenge to California Penal Code 32310, as recently amended by Senate Bill 1446 and Proposition 63, and Penal Code 32390 (the Large-Capacity Magazine Ban). The lawsuit alleges that if these measures are enforced as applied, they would individually and collectively prohibit law-abiding citizens from continuing to possess, use, or acquire lawfully-owned firearms, in common use for lawful purposes such as self-defense (inside and outside the home), competition, sport, and hunting.

This one seems a bit risky to me. But, historically, SAF has been pretty good at these sorts of things.

Gun Insurance Fight

The NRA has decided to get in on the self defense insurance game, much like the USCCA. NRA even uninvited USCCA from the annual meeting. I’m not really sold on the concept no matter the provider. Aside from that, a couple of people have made some decent points on why this could be a bad idea:

What if George Zimmerman had Carry Guard?

And now you have the NRA saying that liability insurance for gun owners is a good thing. And anti-gun politicians have been trying to make that required by law for a while.

NRA annual meeting stuff

I wasn’t there this year, a bit busy. But others were.

Bitter has the NRA board of directors vote totals. The bylaw changes were approved overwhelmingly. I’m rather surprised at how few people, as a percentage, vote in the election. I suppose that may be because it’s life members and annual members with 5 years that vote?

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.

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.


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.

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