    Do You Think the Police Can Protect You?

    DENVER, CO—A Denver woman is dead and her husband is in jail. Monday night, the wife of Richard Kirk called 911 to report her husband acting strangely.

The wife called 911, fearing for her life and the life of her 3 children. Mrs. Kirk told dispatch that there was a gun in the house but that it was locked in a safe. Towards the end of the call, the dispatcher could hear screaming and then heard…

    Helping Our Anti-Gun Friends With Facts

    I am done with the gun debate. Much like arguing with a five year-old, the only thing that the gun debate does is create unneeded stress and gives the gun-grabbers undeserved attention. Facts are on our side of this issue, while the anti-gunners use emotion and knee-jerk reactions in an attempt to rally support for their attempt at undoing the Second Amendment. I want to explore and lay out where they are mistaken, ill-informed or even lying about the Second Amendment and guns in general. My hope is that you will share this article with your friends on the other…

    Missing M-16 Found In Deputy’s Home After 8 Years

    DAVIS COUNTY, UT—A Federal Audit was recently conducted, as per the terms to The Department of Defense Excess Property Program, and the Davis County Sheriff’s Office was missing an M-16 that they were given in 1998. In that year, Davis County was given 20 of these rifles. According to a sheriff’s spokesperson, the rifles had been kept in storage until 2006 when they were used in training exercises. According to KSL, a deputy checked one of the M16s out for training exercises with the county SWAT team. The deputy in question (he has not been named as of yet) kept…

    Arlington Open Carry Laws Being Questioned

    ARLINGTON, TX—The city council of Arlington, Texas will be exploring the banning of weapons in their city council meetings. The proposed ban would include any weapon or simulated weapon from being brought into the city council meeting. A simulated weapon is, according to Jay Doegey City Attorney, “any object manufactured or designed to appear as though it is a weapon, regardless of whether or not it is capable of inflicting injury or damage.” A violation of the ordinance would result in a $500 fine. Texas has interesting gun laws when it comes to possessing a firearm on government property. A…

    Jewish Center Shooter Glenn Miller Jr Aided by Straw Purchase

    OVERLAND PARK, KS — F. Glenn Miller Jr., racist and dirt bag extraordinaire, is a convicted felon. As such, he is prohibited from purchasing, owning or possessing any firearm. That did not stop him from killing three innocent people at two separate Jewish Community Centers last week in Overland Park, Kansas. Miller, a former member of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), was a fierce anti-Semite who published his warped and sick views frequently online. In recent years, Miller had been shunned by his KKK buddies–not because he wasn’t racist enough, but because he had testified against them back in 1998…

The “Rosco”

Apr 17, 2014

I recently wrote in another article about a cardboard box filled with dangerous items that some friends had found while cleaning out an elderly parent’s house prior to sale. One of the items in the box was a Rosco brand six-shot revolver chambered for .22 short. Rosco was one of several brands of inexpensive revolvers made by the firm of Röhm Gesellschaft (RG) in Sontheim West Germany. Many of these inexpensive guns were imported into this country prior to the Gun Control Act of 1968. In fact, the derogatory label of “Saturday night special” was coined by gun control advocates…

First CT Gun Owner Charged for Unregistered Assault Rifle

Apr 16, 2014

MILFORD, CONN.—The first man has been charged under the new Connecticut assault weapon registration law. Police directing traffic heard a gunshot nearby, and they followed the sound of the gunshot to investigate. They were lead to the home of James Toigo, where an investigation turned up a dead squirrel, an unregistered assault rifle and three high-capacity magazines. The rifle and magazines were seized for further investigation along with several other firearms in Toigo’s home. Toigo had shot the squirrel on his home property, but not with the unregistered assault rifle that was seized. He was charged with unlawful discharge of…

Hey, America, Have You Had Enough Yet?

Apr 16, 2014

I read a news article the other day about a young boy being suspended from school for twirling a pencil in the classroom. It seems that a 7th grader at Glen Meadow middle school in Vernon Township in New Jersey, was suspended for “twirling” a pencil in “gun fashion”. Another of his classmates said he was playing with a pencil, like it were a gun and it made him a little uncomfortable. Now, get a load of this: The school administration suspended the guy and ordered him to take a psychological exam before he could return to school. This 7th grader had to endure a…

Sig Sauer and ATF

Sig Sauer and ATF Set to Face Off in Court

Apr 16, 2014

At the 2013 Shot Show, Sig Sauer introduced the MPX with the optional 9” muzzle brake, bringing the overall length of the gun to 16”, making it a legal rifle under National Firearms Act (NFA) rules. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has designated this unique muzzle brake as a silencer. Their ruling is because of the design of the brake. According to the ATF, “The submitted item is designed and constructed as a silencer component commonly referred to as a ‘monolithic baffle stack’” Earl Griffin, chief of Firearms Technology Branch of the ATF, continued, “A monolithic baffle…

Granny Get Your Gun

Apr 16, 2014

Let us make a simple assumption: Except for those of us with the most rigid and intolerant political views, most will have close associations with people on both sides of the traditional political fence. So, for the purposes of this article, let’s pigeonhole everyone in our circle of friends and family into one of two categories. We can call them “gun people” and “non-gun” people. It happens to almost all “gun people” sooner or later; If you don’t make a secret of the fact that you are a “gun person,” eventually, one of your “non-gun” friends will approach you seeking…

$50 Million for Bloomberg Anti-Gun Movement

Apr 16, 2014

NEW YORK CITY, NY—Former tyrant Mikey Bloomberg is back in the news, this time for his commitment to spend $50 million to fight the National Rifle Association (NRA). He apparently did not learn his costly lesson in Colorado last year when he involved himself in the recall election of the state senators. This time, Bloomberg does not plan on doing television spots, but will focus more on grassroots programs. His hope is to get more women and moms involved in his anti-constitutional movement. According to Erika Soto, the spokesperson for his new group of illiterates, Everytown for Gun Safety, “Women, and…

Are Our Kids Really In Danger?

Apr 15, 2014

We are familiar by now with the Moms Demand Action group which, if you are not familiar, is a group of women that want stricter gun laws to “protect” our children. The left would like everyone to believe that the leading cause of unnatural deaths among children 0-25 years of age are caused by guns–or, at the least, that guns are in the top five causes of death.  If a person was to come out of hibernation after 50 years and read statements by the left as well as groups like Moms Demand Action, they would be led to believe…

New York’s SAFE Act

Apr 15, 2014

“The SAFE Act stops criminals and the dangerously mentally ill from buying a gun by requiring universal background checks on gun purchases, increases penalties for people who use illegal guns, mandates life in prison without parole for anyone who murders a first responder, and imposes the toughest assault weapons ban in the country. For hunters, sportsmen, and law abiding gun owners, this new law preserves and protects your right to buy, sell, keep or use your guns.” – Governor Andrew Cuomo Anyone who believes the above statement from Governor Cuomo will probably be interested in the unicorns that I am…

BLM Cites “Safety Concerns” Regarding Retreat at the Bundy Ranch

Apr 15, 2014

I guess by now, we are all familiar with the story of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his dispute with the federal government over the land on which his family has been grazing cattle since the 1870s. Honestly, I can make neither heads nor tails of the whole situation. On one hand, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) claims that Bundy owes the US government over $1,000,000 in unpaid grazing fees. On the other, Bundy alleges that the BLM came on the scene only after he had tried to pay Clark County, Nevada for the rights to graze his cattle…

Kahr Arms is planning to break ground on their new Corporate Headquarters in Pike County, Pennsylvania this May. Kahr bought a 600 acre plot in a business park in Pike County last year. Kahr Arms is leaving New York State because of the state’s decision to enact strict gun laws. Frank Harris, spokesperson for the business park, said, “We would like to have a firearms-friendly business park. If other companies want to leave states with more restrictive gun laws, such as Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York, this is a great place. We have lots available and we would put up…

KINGSTON, RI—The University of Rhode Island has the decision to allow their police officers to carry firearms. With this decision, all public universities now have armed police forces, and the University of Rhode Island was the last remaining holdout. University President David Dooley said in a statement announcing his decision, “In order to provide the safest environment possible and to ensure a timely response to any threat to the safety of our campuses, our police officers must be equipped properly to function as first responders.” The university took more than a year to come to this decision after a scare…

S&W 64-5

Apr 10, 2014

This past December, I was in my local gun shop looking to buy myself a Christmas present. I figured I had been a relatively good boy this year, so I deserved something as a reward. I did not want to spend very much money at all, and to be perfectly candid, I did not expect to find anything in my price range. Much to my surprise the store had a smith and Wesson 64-5 “police” trade-in. You will notice that I put police in quotes. This is because most of the 64-5s that are currently on the market weren’t actually…

New York Gun Owners Soon to be Criminals

Apr 9, 2014

ALBANY, NY—I feel sorry for residents of New York State.  All of us have impending dread for the 15th of April because of tax deadlines, but the residents of New York also have a new gun law going into effect this same day. Gee, thanks, New York, way to make the 15th even worse! This new law requires gun owners to register any semi-automatic weapon that has a detachable magazine and at least one military feature. Nothing screams “government over-reach” like vague terms in laws. Think about it: A military feature could be sights, or the ever-dangerous bayonet lug. We…

Heckler & Koch USP Compact .45 ACP

Apr 9, 2014

I recently got my grubby little paws on an HK USP compact .45 auto. Wow! What a neat, cleanly lined pistol. The USP (universal self-loading) compact is a polymer & steel design that is strong, lightweight (for a .45 auto), and easily concealable. The USP compact weighs 1.6 pounds unloaded. Its overall length is 7.09 inches. Its height is 5.06 inches, and has a barrel length of 3.8 inches. It has three-dot fixed sights, an ambidextrous magazine release, bobbed hammer, a de-cocking lever and a lock-out thumb safety. The grips are polymer and have a sand-like rough texture. The sights are very visible and you…

The Mom Jean Posse is back in the news again, this time creating internet memes and holding unattended press conferences. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America has recently created an internet meme that compares gun owners with the Marlboro Man from the 1970s.  In the meme, they have a picture of a man holding an AR-15 side by side with the Marlboro Man, captioned with the slogan, “Reality always catches up with fantasy. End America’s gun cancer now.” Of course, they reverted to internet memes because their followers aren’t actually smart enough to have any kind of debate…

Convicted Felons and Firearms

Convicted Felons And Firearms–What’s The Deal?

Apr 9, 2014

We all know the U.S. Code on convicted felons having firearms. Each state seems to have its own laws and rules as well. In my state, antique firearms and black powder guns with a flintlock or percussion type ignition system does not violate federal, or any state laws. A felon can possess, hunt, shoot , and utilize them. I for one, don’t have any problem with that. I have a friend who I have known for many years. He is honest and hard working, and he served in combat in Iraq. He was a local deputy sheriff for many years. He was a local law…

Ft. Hood Shooting and Man’s Violent Nature

Apr 8, 2014

I purposefully held off writing about the Ft Hood shooting to give myself time to calm down and reflect on what had transpired as well as what can be done in the future to minimize the casualties. Do not kid yourself; this will happen again and again. Human nature is such that violence is a natural occurrence and a way for people to deal with their problems, albeit a horrible way. I am not, in any way, abdicating this monster from his responsibility for what he has done, nor am I condoning his actions. The truth is, I hope he…

Good Gal With Gun Stops Bad Guy With Gun

Apr 8, 2014

FRISCO, TX– Right out of the NRA playbook and Wayne LaPierre’s lips, a Texas woman decided to follow her “woman’s intuition” and go out for a night on the town with her handgun. It turns out that, because of her preparation, she saved another woman during a robbery. The victim, Kim Lanphere, was waiting for the train at the Dallas Convention Center as she did regularly every week.  She had always felt safe until she had a run-in on Saturday, March 22, 2014 when she saw 23-year-old Jamail Koroma at the station.  Lanphere told police that she felt nervous with…

Holder and Sharpton Spending Our Tax Dollars

Apr 8, 2014

As of today, our national debt is $17.5 trillion dollars. This number is almost too big to even comprehend. With this in mind, let me tell you that our esteemed Attorney General Eric Holder is spending our money to travel to and participate in Al Sharpton’s National Action (NAN) conference called “Gun Violence: American Holsters, How the Gun Won: Discussion of the 2nd Amendment, Gun Policy & Violence in the USA.” Eric Holder has been selected to introduce the panel that will discuss this topic. Who is on this panel? It is a virtual who’s-who in the anti-Second Amendment crowd:…

Why Doesn’t the DOD Trust its Own Soldiers?

Apr 7, 2014

Even as the dust is still settling from last week’s deadly shooting on Fort Hood, the country is trying to come to grips with what might be the solution to this apparent epidemic. In the wake of the first Fort Hood incident in November 2009, security procedures were heightened on every military base in the country. Nowhere else in the nation are firearms so strictly regulated and controlled as on military installations. This approach, the absolute disarmament of anyone who actually abides by the rules, is apparently working no better on Fort Hood than anywhere else it has been enacted…

16 Wounded and 4 Killed at Fort Hood Shooting

Apr 4, 2014

FORT HOOD–As the world quickly knew immediately afterwards, a Fort Hood shooting at 4 p.m. on Wednesday left 16 wounded and 3 killed, finally ending when the shooter turned the gun on himself. The shooter, Spc. Ivan Lopez, was an army truck driver who was deployed once for four months and never saw combat. He did, however, report a head injury when he returned. He was also under the watchful eye of his therapist, who said he had depression and anxiety issues. However, Lopez showed no apparent risks of violence prior to the shooting. While it is currently unknown as to…

The effects of Hurricane Katrina can still be felt to this day. 2005 is a distant memory, but Katrina and her devastation will be felt for years to come. Most of us will never forget the images that came across the air waves during this catastrophic event.  The scariest moments of this tragedy were the scenes of lawlessness that raged throughout New Orleans. What was most shocking was the New Orleans Police Department seizing firearms from law abiding citizens and declaring martial law for all intents and purposes. A majority of states saw this action as intolerable and started working…

Tracking a Dog-Killing Coyote

Apr 4, 2014

My phone rang about 4:40 a.m  this morning. I automatically assumed the worst. The caller was a neighbor that lives about two miles down the valley from me. I had trapped several bobcats for her in the past that had been killing her chickens. The morning of her call, she had heard a ruckus in her chicken house and got out of bed to go investigate. Her toy poodle, Oscar, ran out the door, barking wildly and beating her to the chicken house. The door latch was unlatched. Inside, she discovered two dead chickens. Miss “Mimi”, as everyone around here calls her, was very upset…
