And a happy new year

Be safe tonight. And have a good time.

Hard to support gun control without being a hypocrite

Rahm Emanuel has a yard sign up to tell you he has armed guards. The secret service even, which I doubt.


SAF sues to derail Washington State gun control initiative 594

Mass shooting in Canada

9 dead:

The victims included a woman found Monday night by officers who were responding to a weapons complaint at a south Edmonton home.

A little digging shows that they were shot with a 9mm handgun:

Investigators have determined the 9 mm handgun used to kill Duong was a registered weapon that had been stolen in Surrey, British Columbia, in 2006.

Odd that all that gun control and the registry didn’t stop this from happening.

Speaking of the SB-15

IWI is now making an Uzi that takes one.


A photo series of women and their guns. Quite a few of the photos show unsafe gun handling.

Has it been that long?

And, still, nothing has happened: The IRS Scandal, Day 600

Tax increase

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency wants to raise fees on licenses and such 22%.


#1 is on both the best and worst lists.

ATF and the SB-15 again, still

NSFW!!! Hey, ATF, can you define shouldering? NSFW!!!

Purse carry

Trouble with it is if you don’t control your purse, you don’t control the gun:

A 2-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his mother after he reached into her purse at a northern Idaho Wal-Mart and her concealed gun fired, authorities said Tuesday.



See, when I use the quotes, it’s for a reason. Not sure why the WaPo wanted to use quotes around “hero”.

A story in one bullet

why does a modern 44 use a .429″ bullet and a 38 use a .357″ bullet?

First Ever Hornady Rifle

Going for about $22K on


The first and only firearm ever manufactured by the Hornady Manufacturing Company is featured as the 2015 SHOT Show rifle and made available to Hornady fans around the world exclusively on

Recognized for decades as one of the most respected and innovative names in ammunition and reloading equipment manufacturing, Hornady has placed its name on a firearm for the first and perhaps only time in the company’s history.

“We don’t mean to alarm our friends at Remington, Winchester or Ruger. Hornady has no plans of going into the gun business,” commented Hornady President, Steve Hornady in announcing the gun. “The concept of creating a one-of-a-kind Hornady rifle has been percolating for several years and we are excited to make “The Hornady Number One” a reality for 2015– especially since the gun has been selected as the 2015 SHOT Show Rifle.”

Police killed by firearms up


A new report finds that the number of law-enforcement officers killed by firearms jumped by 56 percent in 2014.

The annual report released Tuesday by the nonprofit National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund found that 50 officers were killed by guns this year, compared to 32 in 2013.

In all, the report says 126 federal, local, tribal and territorial officers were killed in the line of duty. Thatís a 24 percent jump from last yearís 102 line-of-duty deaths. Shootings were the leading cause. The second was traffic-related fatalities.

Retired Major General: The M4 sucks

Scales blames it on the deaths of several military personnel. It’s cheap metal and plastic. Would he rather it be wooden? His accounts from Vietnam were back during the first run, which the military kind of screwed up with some of the changes they wanted. He advocates going to something modular.

OK, which one of you bought this?

#ImBlockedByShannonWatts: Can @shannonrwatts do something so stupid she blocks herself?

So, professional marketing hack Shannon Watts whined that the big, bad NRA blocked her from reading their twitter feed. Then, in an act of what is probably a combination of hypocrisy and stupidity or a complete lack of self awareness, she goes on to block anyone who has ever pointed out that she’s wrong all the time.

#ImBlockedByShannonWatts is a new badge of honor.

She even blocked me. I guess she’s afraid of a father of two. Not that I care. She only came across my radar when someone else made fun of her. Besides, if she thinks blocking someone means they can’t see her, she’s wrong.

In Fast and Furious news

Sharyl Attkisson is reviewing the document dump, which shows that, yes, the administration wanted to use the program to push for gun control.


Retired officers forced to sue D.C. for right to carry guns after receiving threats. They’ll be using The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act.

I can’t disagree with this list. The Glock is fine but it should have been a single stack 9mm.

ETA: HL reminded me about the Taurus Curve. I guess I can disagree with the list.
