In DC, unclear on the concept of carry permits

Stephen Gutowski applied for one citing threats he had received. He went through the process, got printed, and paid the money. He was denied because, despite being threatened and able to show that, he was unable to show he had good reason to fear for his safety. Heck, doesn’t living in DC qualify as having a good reason to fear for your safety?

NRA Youth Conference

From an email, the NRA is getting its youth outreach on:

Make Plans to Attend the Inaugural Second Amendment Youth Leadership Conference in Nashville!

The NRA-ILA Grassroots Division will be hosting the first ever Second Amendment Youth Leadership Conference during NRA’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits! Geared specifically toward the next generation of Second Amendment activists, this one-of-a kind event will be an exciting opportunity for college students to learn more about the Second Amendment and how to become a more effective advocate on their campus and in their community! (The event is open to all interested attendees, but its focus will be on college students.)

College students who attend will receive a free one year NRA membership, along with a chance to bring NRA to their campus! Additionally, the first 50 students to register for the conference will also receive a free commemorative T-shirt. At the conference itself, there will be opportunities to win additional NRA swag, along with free admission to the NRA Annual Meeting!

Among the speakers will be our special guest, Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi!

The Inaugural Second Amendment Youth Leadership Conference will be held on Friday, April 10th from 2:00-4:00 p.m., at the Omni Nashville Hotel, in Legends Ballroom ABC.

Attendance is free, but due to the anticipated interest in this first-of-its-kind event, pre-registration is strongly recommended. To reserve your spot, go online to and RSVP today!

I’m happy to see them making this move.

S&W and Ruger to California: No sales for you

Put aside the photo of someone with their booger-hook on the bang-switch while pointing it at their hand.


A new gun law proponents say helps law enforcement has driven Smith & Wesson and Sturm Ruger out of California, and affirmed the suspicions of firearms rights advocates that the measure is really about making handguns obsolete.

The two companies have announced they will stop selling their wares in the nation’s most populous state rather than try to comply with a law that requires some handguns to have technology that imprints a tiny stamp on the bullet so it can be traced back to the gun. The companies, and many gun enthusiasts, say so-called “microstamping” technology is unworkable in its present form and can actually impair a gun’s performance.

Will they refuse to sell to law enforcement? I’m surprised more industries don’t pull out of Cali, like car makers, due to their silly regulations.

Possession of guns by a felon

You should be able to detail strip you three guns, jumble it all up in a bin, and reassemble three guns and have them all work GOOD, without a hiccup.

In Florida

Judge rules that open carry can be banned so long as concealed carry is allowed. Also, I didn’t realize that, in FL, having a license is an affirmative defense to the crime of carrying a gun.

I suppose it’s progress

But a bit odd:

Rep. Dexter Sharper didn’t vote to allow guns to be carried in more places in Georgia last year. But when the so-called “guns everywhere” law took effect last summer and permitted firearms in bars, schools, churches and government offices, the legislator from Valdosta found himself applying for a license.

Sharper, a Democrat who works as a paramedic, said he didn’t want to be caught somewhere as the only person without a firearm. It’s a growing possibility in his district in Lowndes County, which now issues more than double the number of licenses it did five years ago.

While Sharper and his .32-caliber Kel-Tec may no longer be outgunned, he said he now realizes that his pistol is of little use without guidance as to what to do with it. He suspects other inexperienced, gun-toting Georgians know too little about the state’s gun laws, or how to safely use and store firearms, as well.

Sharper is proposing that those who get a license to carry firearms be required to take a gun safety class.

How cool is that?

Sig SB-15 Brace legal again, still

An email from Sig:


Newington, N. H. (February 20, 2015) – SIG SAUER, Inc. has issued the following statement relative to the January 2015 open opinion letter issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms regarding the SB15 and SBX Pistol Stabilizing Braces.

BATFE Technical Branch issued an open opinion letter dated January 16, 2015 regarding the Pistol Stabilizing Brace (SB15 and SBX) which is marketed by SIG SAUER®. Contrary to several statements subsequently made in social media, this opinion letter did not make or otherwise declare that the SB15 product is illegal. The BATFE letter stated that the SB15 is a product “which is legal to own, legal to purchase and legal to install on a pistol.” SIG SAUER believes that the PSB enhances the shooter’s experience and offers the products as an accessory and pre-installed on a number of pistols. In all of its opinions, BATFE has consistently stated that a pistol with a stabilizing brace attached remains a pistol under the Gun Control Act when used as designed.

Emphasis added. Because that’s how it was been. So, a press release for nothing happening?

Only the police should have guns

WABC NY: A police officer accidentally shot his sergeant after firing at a pit bull inside a Brooklyn apartment building.

And there’s this:

The shot grazed the dog, possibly ricocheted off a wall, and then struck his sergeant in the right foot just below his big toe.

I tend to doubt the round ricocheted off a wall. More likely, the guy wasn’t sure of his target and what was behind it.

And ABC Chicago:

Earlier Wednesday morning, an alarm at the courthouse malfunctioned, forcing an evacuation of the building. The officer was retrieving a gun from a locker it went off.

Just went off all by its own self!

Walking Dead producer doesn’t like guns on the street

Hollywood Reporter:

“I worry more about the fact that we have guns on the street here,” she said Feb. 11, speaking at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film & Television, where she took part in the ongoing Hollywood Masters interview series. “I mean, in Australia, countries around the world where they have the same entertainment, and they don’t have the homicide rates that we do here, it’s clear that there’s another reason for it. [In] all my films, the antagonists are monsters or cyborgs, or you name it. The Walking Dead is the one [that’s] different, and I found that it’s inspired a debate about what does it mean to be human and can you justify resorting to this kind of brutality?”

And, yet, your show illustrates pretty much why people may need guns. Odd.
