    NJ Woman Killed by Ex-Boyfriend While Awaiting Gun Permit

    This story never saw the light of day on CNN or MSNBC. Bloomberg and his army of clones won’t be retelling this story to their mindless followers, either. Carol Browne had a violent ex-boyfriend named Michael Eitel who had threatened her life in the past. She followed the laws of New Jersey and petitioned for a restraining order, which she got against him. She also applied for a permit to own a hand gun on April 21, 2015. Browne was killed last week by her ex—not with a gun, but with a knife. He waited for her to return home and…

    Obama Pushes for Greater Gun Laws, Unified Agenda

    President Barack Obama is on the proverbial death bed of his presidency. We have reached the 23rd hour, and his legacy is less than stellar. He has botched foreign relations, his domestic policies have put the middle class in financial chaos, Obamacare is about to implode. As the first black president, he has actually made race relations worse, and has taken the side of criminals over the police while his Department of Justice has obstructed justice during multiple investigations into criminal activity within the department. Agencies within the DOJ even refused to hand over documents to their own Inspector General….

    The 3 Essential Kinds of Confidence: A Play on Daniel Boone

    The famous frontiersman and near-founder of Kentucky, Daniel Boone was once quoted as saying, “All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.” Although I would amend that statement to apply to my own life, I find that it mostly holds true — just not quite for the same reasons that he may have had when he first uttered the words. I have found that one of the true keys to lasting happiness is found in having confidence. Not just having the kind of confidence that comes from having a full tank of…

    Gun Club Membership Tax Prohibition Passes Legislature

    The Florida Senate and House have passed a tax cut package bill, HB33A, which expressly forbids the Florida Department of Revenue from trying to collect sales taxes on gun club membership fees. Several clubs were considering closing their doors because of alleged back taxes. This is great news for gun owners. Here’s the release from USF/NRA:… Read the rest of the article from The Gun Writer …

    Authors of FBI Report on Public Shootings Admit “Our Data Is Imperfect”

    For months I had tried getting a response from the Department of Justice and the authors of a FBI report on “active shooters” regarding errors that the CPRC had found. I then published a research in the March 2015 issue of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. That finally got a response from two of the FBI study’s authors, Pete Blair and M. Hunter Martaindale, last week. Jason Riley’s article in the Wall Street Journal describes their response: . . . But late last week, J. Pete Blair and M. Hunter Martaindale, two academics at Texas State University who co-authored the FBI report, acknowledged that “our data is…

Do Men Carry Guns to Feel Like Men?

Jun 9, 2015

I read an interesting Op-Ed piece this past weekend that was published in the Los Angeles Times. The title “Why Men Feel the Need to Carry Guns” caught my eye and I decided to read it, even though I was expecting a liberal hit piece. The piece was written by Jennifer Carlson, a young lady who is a sociologist reared in the midwest by a conservative family. Carlson is also the author of Citizen-Protectors: The Everyday Politics of Guns in an Age of Decline. The piece makes the point that men carry guns for more than just self-defense, but because…

SCOTUS Refuses to Hear Jackson v City and County of San Francisco

Jun 9, 2015

The Supreme Court of the United States has just issued their refusal to hear the case Jackson v. City and County of San Francisco. The case involves two important legal issues that are affecting the citizens of San Francisco city and county and their Second Amendment rights. San Francisco has a law that requires all homeowners who possess guns to either have them on their person or locked in a safe or have a trigger disabling mechanism in place. The second issue is a law that has banned the sale of hollow point ammunition within the city and county limits….

The Glock 35: More than Just a Race Gun

Jun 9, 2015

As some of you may have noted in reading some of my previous articles, I’m something of Glock fan.  Sure, I have (and have had) several Glock pistols over the years, including Glock 17′s and Glock 22’s.  And now, that list has grown to include the fabled Glock 35.  Let me tell you, you get a lot more than you think you will from this gun. The Glock 35 is most often associated with being a race gun or a gun that runs more along the tactical spectrum.  Just looking at its specifications will help you to understand why that…

Democrats Want Liability Insurance for Gun Owners

Jun 5, 2015

Carolyn Maloney-D NY, wants all gun owners or those purchasing a gun to have liability insurance or face a $10,000 fine. According to Maloney, “We require insurance to own a car, but no such requirement exists for guns. The results are clear: Car fatalities have declined by 25 percent in the last decade, but gun fatalities continue to rise.” Where to begin? Okay, how about this: Car fatalities have gone down because cars are being made with better technology that protects drivers and passengers better than before. Insurance or lack thereof has no bearing on whether people get killed in…

New Guys in the Optics Market May Rival Aimpoint and Eotech

Jun 5, 2015

Look out, Aimpoint and Eotech.  There are some new guys in town in the tactical optics market.  It’s as though there is been epic struggle going on for the last fifteen years or longer.  For the most part, everyone has taken their side.  One side, helping to save the free world, is the iconic Aimpoint series of red dot optics.  On the other side, the always-identifiable Eotech series of optics.  And standing by themselves, hoping that that no one notices their gigantic slice of the Red Dot market share, stands Trijicon. These three behemoths of the tactical optic market have…

D.C Continues to Disobey Court, Infringes on 2nd Amendment

Jun 3, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. — I know that this may come as a shock to some of you, but the people running Washington D.C. don’t feel that laws and court orders apply to them. As shocking as this may be to us, it is simply business as usual in our nation’s capital. It is common knowledge that D.C. has been in a bitter struggle to maintain their uber-strict firearms laws. Multiple citizens have sued the city on the grounds that the laws infringe upon the Second Amendment, which is explicitly prohibited by the Bill of Rights. D.C. has lost almost all of…

NFA Weapons Now Legal in Texas

Jun 3, 2015

AUSTIN, TEXAS – In a major advance for owners of guns and accessories regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA), most notably silencers or suppressors, Texas Governor Greg Abbott on May 22 signed Senate Bill 473, reforming the state’s so-called “Defense to Prosecution” (DTP) law. Texas is the second state this session, following Tennessee, to reform DTP laws at the request of the NFA Freedom Alliance. Todd Rathner, executive director of the NFA Freedom Alliance, commented, “Because Texas has one of the nation’s highest rates of NFA ownership, this bill was a top priority in our inaugural session. Now, Texans who own NFA weapons will be…

Texas Legalizes Open Carry in Public, Including on Campus

Jun 2, 2015

AUSTIN, TX — Texas legislators have just approved two bills making it legal to open carry in public and on University campuses. This bill received a lot of opposition from anti-gun groups (surprise, surprise). House Bill 901 cleared the state house last Friday with 102 votes in favor of the bill and 43 against. In the Senate, it passed with a 20-11 vote. This all happened after a week of relentless debate where Democrats threatened a filibuster that never materialized. After the bill was approved, Governor Greg Abbott tweeted, “Open Carry just passed in both the Texas House & Senate. Next…

3 Attempted Robber Juveniles Shot By Would-Be Victim

Jun 1, 2015

When three male juveniles allegedly tried to rob a group of people moving into an Aurora condominium complex at gunpoint late Friday, one of the movers opened fire, hitting all three, Aurora police said. One of the juveniles died after being taken to a local hospital, and one was taken to the hospital in serious condition. The third later went to Aurora South seeking treatment for a shoulder wound and is now in custody on unrelated charges, according to Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz. Detectives interviewed the three men — a man who was moving into his new condominium and two…

Everytown Using Cop Killings To Push For More Background Checks

May 29, 2015

The left has had their fair share of awful studies aimed at curbing our Second Amendment rights. According to the FBI crime statistics, violent crime has seen a precipitous decline. Between 1993-2011, there was a 39 percent drop in firearm-related homicides; Pew Research noted a 49 percent drop between 1993-2010. Given these figures, anti-gun groups have resorted to lumping suicides into the gun violence category to boost the number of fatalities. Recently, the Center for American Progress* hypothesized that gun violence was “devastating” the Millennial generation. That’s not entirely accurate. The noted racial disparity in the CAP report is due to gang violence…
