  • Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Ad Backfires, Promotes Gun Ownership (VIDEO)

    Everytown for Gun Safety’s newest ad promotion, backed by gun-grabbing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, took an unexpected turn and completely backfired. The ironic video is a dark 30 second clip of a woman’s raging ex-husband breaking in. While she calls 9-1-1, he kidnaps her child and draws a handgun. All the while, the woman screams in defenseless desperation — cops minutes away from her home, the gun feet away from her head. The YouTube caption for Bloomberg’s “anti-gun” ad says this: Stop violence again women. Text SAFER to 877-877 to urge your senator to support legislation that will…

    A Formal Introduction of GunNews Writer, Brian Buru

    I really enjoyed going to school when I was teenager. This was mainly because I seemed to recognize connections between the theories taught in various subjects and how they could be applied. My favorite subjects were history and political science. However, my true love was the study of firearms. I could not explain it if my life depended on it, nor could my parents. My dad had an old pump action shotgun (that he hoped would work in the event he ever needed it to), a little bolt-action .22 that had a missing magazine and a Smith & Wesson .38…

    Boston Chief of Police Wants to Decide Who Gets Guns

    BOSTON, MASS. — The Boston Chief of Police has weighed in on a bill which is currently in the state House. This gun-control bill would, among other things, require citizens to obtain a firearms identification card in order to purchase rifles and shotguns. Citizens of Massachusetts must already have a FOID to buy a handgun. The Chief, Bill Evans, seems to see himself as the firearms gatekeeper. In an interview with Boston Public Radio, the chief said, “For the most part, nobody in the city needs a shotgun, nobody needs a rifle, and I don’t know a lot of people…

    The Henry US Survival Rifle

    Of all our sponsors, I always believed that the most unique relationship we have at Renaissance is with Henry Repeating Arms. Maybe it’s the brotherhood oppressed northeast gun owners share. Maybe it’s just that Anthony Imperato is an amazing American with the same passion for turning this country around. The only way to fix the States is with old-fashioned hard work. Their motto is “Made in America, or not at all” — Quite a far cry from the “Made in ROC” stickers in the flags of our public schools. Alrighty, enough of that. But don’t worry, I plan on thoroughly…

Psychiatrist Returns Fire at Philadelphia Hospital

Jul 30, 2014

DARBY, PA — At mid-afternoon last Thursday, mental health patient Richard Plotts, 49, of Upper Darby, shot and killed mental health caseworker, Theresa Hunt, 53, of Philadelphia. The shooting took place in the offices of psychiatrist, Dr. Lee Silverman, at the Sister Marie Lenahan Wellness Center on the campus of Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby. Hunt had apparently just transported Plotts to Dr. Silverman’s office for a scheduled appointment. It is not known exactly what sparked the incident, but after shooting Hunt, Plotts attempted to shoot Silverman in the head. The Doctor was struck a grazing blow by Plotts’s bullet…

Rolling Stone Magazine Shows Idiocy with Gun Article

Jul 30, 2014

Kristen Gwynne of Rolling Stone Magazine showed her lack of education and thorough ineptitude with her current article, The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America. This article is more in line with what one would read in The Onion, but then again, Rolling Stone probably does less research than The Onion for their articles. Kristen, bless her sweet bleeding heart, is attempting to make America and the world aware of which guns they should avoid as these are the most dangerous. Here is her list, and I am not making it up: Pistols Revolvers Rifles Shotguns Derringers In other breaking…

Gun Owners Who Want Gun Control

Jul 29, 2014

The gun control movement, more recently re-labeled the “gun safety” movement (cute huh? “Safety”….uh-huh…) has found friends and allies among some gun owners. Yes, you read that right. This fact should be alarming. The gun control movement smells a way to get traction through “divide and conquer.” “I’m A Gun Owner and I Want Gun Control,” an article written by CNN “legal analyst” Mark O’Mara, is a must-read for all second amendment supporters.  Mark O’Mara is the central Florida defense attorney who represented George Zimmerman.  As you might expect, Mark O’Mara is well-spoken, and of course he is persuasive –…

Bullet Choice and Weather

Jul 29, 2014

When I was taking a class in the 8th grade I learned two very specific and valuable lessons: Use the right tool for the right job and don’t ask a tool to do something that it was not designed to. For the most part, we tend to follow that kind of advice. We try to not use a screwdriver like it is a punch. We do not use a chainsaw when pruning roses. Most of all, we do not use a hammer like a wrench, or vice-versa. We understand the utility of the tools we have and use them accordingly….

Do you understand what an influence she is if she talks to her friends about firearms or even casually mentions her shooting and her interest in the subject? And, if she tells them the story of the night she was scared, went to the closet, and felt secure again – watch out – she is…

In Depth: D.C.’s Handgun Carry Ban Unconstitutional

Jul 28, 2014

A ruling by Senior United States District Court Judge Fredrick J. Scullin, Jr., released Saturday, ruled the District of Columbia’s longtime ban on the carrying of handguns outside of one’s home unconstitutional. This ruling is another blow to the District’s ridiculously oppressive firearms laws. The defendants in the case were Cathy Lanier, Police Chief and the District of Columbia. The plaintiffs were Tom G. Palmer, George Lyon, Edward Raymond, Amy McVey and the Second Amendment Foundation. The case hinged on the permit issuance aspect of the law in the District; in order to “bear” arms within the District, one must…

DC Ban on Concealed Carry Overturned

Jul 28, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. — At last, some good news in our constitutional rights to keep and bear arms! On Saturday, Federal Judge Frederick Scullin Jr wrote in his ruling based on Palmer vs District of Columbia that, basically, it is unconstitutional for the city to ban the public’s right to concealed carry. This case has been going on for five years now, dragging through the legal system with the power and speed of a hill-bound Hyundai. What’s remarkable is that Washington DC has been notoriously one of the most anti-gun cities in the country, and this decision now orders the city…

The Psychology of Posture When Shooting

Jul 28, 2014

Most of us have experienced a parent or parents chiding them to maintain their posture.  This is usually happened at the dinner table when our families were seated during dinner or supper. It usually came from our mothers who would remind us to keep our elbows off the table, or our father telling us to stop sitting on our feet. They would tell us to sit up or stand straight – don’t slouch.  What they did not know, however, was that these matters of posture could come in handy at the range if they are applied correctly. One of the…

Following Through on a Shot – Shaving off 3 MOA of Error

Jul 23, 2014

I absolutely love people, and I mean that honestly. In my opinion, there is nothing more fascinating than human nature.  I consider it the only thing on par with shooting. This is why I love my job. As an instructor, I have finally found a true canvas to which my analytic mind can paint. Being that they are based on literally thousands of students, these observations eventually became my standard course material. Of all the shooting fundamentals, none of them yield quite as many AHA! moments as follow through. I will always remember with absolute certainty that very moment when…

Thieves Demand “Stuff”; Get Buckshot

Jul 25, 2014

David Calhoun 31 and Christopher A. Thomas 27 shot their way into an apartment in Pittsburgh and demanded “stuff,” according to a witness. Well, the tenant a 19 year-old unidentified man obliged by firing his shotgun at the intruders three times, killing Calhoun and critically wounding Thomas. When officers arrived on the scene at approximately 2:20 a.m., they found Calhoun inside the apartment dead and Thomas lying face down outside on the front steps with a handgun in close proximity. Thomas will be charged with aggravated assault, burglary, robbery, conspiracy and carrying a firearm without a license. Thomas was also…

Federal Agents Hold Boy Scouts at Gunpoint

Jul 23, 2014

President Obama’s border patrol just got tough on immigration. An Iowa Boy Scout troop was in Canada on a three-week camping trip when they attempted to come back into the United States. Troop 111 encountered a no-nonsense border agent, who is camera-shy. When the agent stopped the scouts, one of the boys snapped a picture of the agent, and that is when things got all kinds of serious. Jim Fox, the scout master, explained, “The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison.” This is funny because I seem…

Introducing the Salvo 12, a Mass Produced Shotgun Suppressor

Jul 22, 2014

Who wants a suppressed shotgun?  If you raised your cyber-arm then you are in luck. A Utah company, SilencerCo held a launch party for a brand new shotgun suppressor. Now, this is not a “new” idea, as shotgun suppressors have been around, but they tended to be custom-made accouterments, as opposed to mass-produced accessories. Mike Aland, VP of marketing for SilencerCo, admits that his company didn’t invent the shotgun suppressor, but they have “invented a viable way to mass produce the silencer and make it available to the general public.” This new toy is modular in nature. At its longest, it…

Beretta Moving Maryland Business to Tennessee

The Volunteer State has scored a major victory in attracting new business. Beretta announced Tuesday that it will be moving all of its Maryland based manufacturing to Tennessee, as opposed to the original plan, which called for just new products to be produced there and leaving legacy lines in Maryland. Jeff Cooper said in relation to the change of plans, “While we had originally planned to use the Tennessee facility for new equipment and for production of new product lines only, we have decided that it is more prudent from the point of view of our future welfare to move…

Bloomberg’s Vision of America

Jul 22, 2014

I can’t help but wonder if Michael Bloomberg is even living on the same planet as the rest of us. In a Rolling Stone interview published on Monday, the former New York mayor and founder of such anti-constitutional organizations as Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) and Everytown for Gun Safety tried to float a backhanded joke about rural Colorado voters. It seems that these same folks didn’t agree with Bloomberg on “his” new restrictive gun legislation and took it upon themselves to recall some state senators who had voted in favor of the new law. This exercise in political freedom…

Naked Man with Gun Stops Burglar

Jul 22, 2014

GORGETOWN, TX — A naked man armed with a 9mm pistol confronted a burglar in his Georgetown home last week. The burglar was attempting a surreptitious burglary when the home owner (unidentified at his request) saw a flashlight pass by his bedroom door. The resident grabbed his 9mm pistol and nothing else. “I have a tattoo of the grim reaper, my hair is sticking up all crazy and I’m naked,” said the homeowner. “I’m not sure if the burglar was more afraid of me or the gun.” Awesome. A naked man with a grim reaper tattoo and a handgun. America…

House Passes Amendment to Support 2nd Amendment in D.C.

Jul 22, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) proposed an amendment to the House appropriations bill, which, as you know, controls the budget for the District of Columbia. Representative Massie said, “The genesis was the opportunity — it was a limitation amendment on the appropriations bill. This amendment process gives rank and file members the opportunity to introduce legislation if they can’t get it to the floor through committee, so this was an opportunity for me to bring up the gun issue,” he continued,” There is only one year after D.C.’s handgun ban went into effect in 1977 where its murder…

.223 Remington Cartridge VS. 5.56 NATO Cartridge

Jul 22, 2014

Looks the same to me.  So, why do some rifles have engraved on the receiver .223 Remington, some say 5.56, and some say both?  These two cartridges do look identical. Well, as the old saying goes, never judge a book by its cover.  These two cartridges are different and designed for different purposes. First off, let’s look at a little history of these popular rounds.  This all started back in the early 1950’s with a new company called ArmaLite Inc. The founder’s aim was to use advanced technology to produce smaller, lighter, and better firearms. By the mid-fifties, the company…

Proposed Gun Control for Children by Rep. Robin Kelly

Jul 22, 2014

There is a new anti-gun lunatic in town, and she comes from… Chicago. I know that the surprise at this announcement is almost too much to bear. Yes, Chicago has produced yet another anti-constitutionalist. Kelly is filling the spot vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr. after his sentencing to Federal Prison (no more guns for him, but he can still hold political office—go figure). Kelly is bringing a new kind of crazy to the party, which is being sponsored by none other than Michael Bloomberg—anti-gun, anti-American and anti-civil rights. Yes, gun ownership falls under civil rights, as it is protected by…
