    Obama Labels 2A Supporters As Domestic Terrorists

    I’m very angry writing this article. Obama and his henchmen have stooped to an all-time low with the leak of a report by the Department of Homeland Security that was never meant to go public. The DHS has produced an intelligence paper stating that right-wing conservative groups are to be considered terrorists. The report claims that since 2010, 24 incidents have happened in the United States that can be traced to right-wing conservative anti-government groups. The DHS says that “…law enforcement officers will remain the primary target of (sovereign citizen) violence over the next year due to their role in…

    ATF Proposes Big Changes Gun Owners

    The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms has started 2015 by issuing several new proposals that will have huge impacts on shooters throughout America. The ATF has recently reversed themselves on two key issues. The first issue is on their previous ruling that stabilizers for AR-pistols were legal and did not make the pistol into a short barreled rifle. The difference is, of course, a big one. An AR-pistol is legal to own without going through the NFA paperwork and paying the tax. A short barreled rifle is the exact opposite. The newly proposed change would affect the thousands of…

    After ATF Ammo Ban Fails, Democrats Take Over

    The recent failure of the ATF ammo ban on the popular M855 round was due to heavy disapproval from the American community. Regardless of the obvious mass opinion that M855 ammunition is to remain legal, Democrat leaders have decided to jump on the ATF bandwagon and continue efforts to ban it. M855 ammunition is being banned on the grounds that it is “armor-piercing” ammunition. It has always been exempt from restrictions because it is primarily used only for sportsmen and hunting. M855 is popular for its availability, price, and accuracy. Since the ATF failed in its efforts to categorize M855…

    What to Do in a Home Invasion (and What Not to Do)

    The thought of having to deal with a home invasion is not pleasant. Unfortunately, this is one of those events that, if not planned for, can have deadly results. Even with proper planning, the consequences of a home invasion can be dire, but you and your family are much more likely to survive. There are a plethora of articles about what to do during a home invasion. Everyone’s circumstances and skill levels are different, so I’m going to cover the do’s and the don’ts for people with little to no tactical knowledge. Allow me to make this disclaimer: These are…

    CNN Contributor Calls for No Guns in Cars

    A couple of weeks ago, Tammy Meyers of Las Vegas, Nevada was shot to death in her driveway after what was initially reported as a road rage incident. According to the Meyers family, Tammy had taken her 15 year-old daughter for a driving lesson and when they were returning home a silver car cut them off. The daughter reached over and honked the horn at the other driver. The other driver, a male that the Meyers described as white and six feet tall, got out of his car and yelled at both Tammy and her daughter. The Meyers originally told…

What is my Gun Worth?

Mar 26, 2015

What is my gun worth? This is a very common question. The answer is easy, right? It’s worth whatever someone is willing to pay you for it. But, trying to determine what someone will pay for a gun is the real trick. There some things that you can do to get a feel for what your gun is worth, whether it is an antique or something newer. Sometimes we inherit an old gun from a grandparent or parent and we really have no clue where to begin. I’m going to explore some ideas to help you down the path to…

CalGuns Foundation: Fighting for Gun Rights in California

Mar 25, 2015

I have a real dislike for the liberal way of living, and I don’t like the way that they think (or their lack there of).  But I especially don’t like the way that they like to take it upon themselves to promote and propagate their senseless and arrogant beliefs onto everyone else.  So, when I when I quote one of them, please know how much I hate to do so. The Former Mayor of San Francisco and now California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom once made a pretty emphatic spectacle of himself when he touted the San Francisco ideal of homosexual…

Mental illness and guns

Mental Illness and Guns

Mar 23, 2015

Mental illness and the role that it plays in violent crime in America has been a topic of debate and misinformation for many years. Whenever there is a mass shooting or violent crime that receives national attention, mental illness is always the first issue discussed, followed closely by a debate on why and how a mentally ill person had access to a gun. Terms like bi-polar, schizophrenia, and borderline personality disorder are thrown around nilly-willy, doing nothing more than fear mongering and clouding the debate on violent crime in America. The gun and the mental illness tend to be blamed…

Glock 43

Glock Slims Down with the Single Stack Glock 43 9mm

Mar 20, 2015

Glock has announced, what most of us have been expecting for a couple of years now, that they will be selling a single stack 9mm to go along with the Glock 42 chambered in .380. Here is the official release. According to their website, “The G43 is our new single stack 9mm pistol. The G43 is the most highly desired and anticipated release in GLOCK history. Designed to be the favored back up or last resort option for both civilian and law enforcement use, this subcompact slimline design is the perfectly balanced answer to your everyday concealed carry needs.

Hillary Scams the American People…Again

Mar 19, 2015

Hillary Clinton, a presumptive presidential candidate for the Democrat party, is spinning like a first rate DJ in an attempt to hide her criminal activity as Secretary of State. Liberals will say that what she did wasn’t criminal and, in fact, it was George Bush’s fault. Clinton used a private email account during her time as Secretary of State. What’s the big deal, you may ask? Or maybe your family will ask when you express your disgust for Clinton. I’ll explain what the big deal is from a technology and transparency standpoint. As I have written before, I am a…

Mother Shoots Intruder to Protect Sleeping Baby

Mar 19, 2015

JAMES CITY COUNTY, VIRGINIA — A woman named Allie, who has chosen not to reveal her last name, shot a man twice who broke into her two-year-old daughter’s playroom. Allie’s husband is a James City County police officer and obviously felt that it was important for his family to be prepared to protect themselves in a life-threatening emergency. He taught his wife Allie how to use a firearm for protection in the case of an intruder in their home. Now, his efforts to teach his wife and her courage to follow through saved lives. Wednesday around 10:30 p.m., Allie heard…

Original SWAT Boots Review – Supporting It All

Mar 18, 2015

My line of work required me to cover a lot of ground. Sometimes that ground is muddy, sandy, frozen, or my least favorite, tiled. If you’re like me, you like to keep your shoe collection as minimal as possible. We have our sneakers, our dress shoes, and our boots, period. I have never been interested in having sub categories of each of the preceding — particularly, boots which are a considerable investment. Over the last three months, I’ve had the opportunity to put a pair of Original S.W.A.T. boots through their paces. In that time, I’ve covered a brisk northern…

Update: ATF Ammo Ban and Other Fed Stupidity

Mar 16, 2015

The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms has temporarily backed off of their attempt to ban M855 ammo, a popular type of 5.56 ammo. The desire to ban this and other types of ammo has not gone away, and the current ATF Director, B. Todd Jones, made that very clear this past week while testifying in front of a senate committee. In responding to a softball question from outspoken anti-gunner Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Jones, another Obama puppet, said, “But as we see more and more of the firearms that could be classified as pistols, being able to use not just…

Why Can’t We Fight the War on Drugs Like We Fight the War on Terror?

Mar 16, 2015

It is hard to listen to our nation’s National Anthem sometimes without getting a bit melancholy.   Listening to “The Star Spangled Banner” used to be something that I enjoyed immensely.  I’d feel a great swell of pride in my chest, especially at our song’s conclusion with the words “land of the free, and home of the brave.”  I don’t feel that way as much anymore. Now, before you think that I hate this country or that I am in some way not proud to be an American, Please KNOW THAT I LOVE THIS COUNTRY.  As far as I am concerned, this…

Bill for Permitless Concealed Carry Passes Utah Senate

Mar 12, 2015

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Senate just passed a bill on Monday that would allow for people over 21 years old to carry concealed firearms without a permit. The biggest roadblock right now is that it does not have the approval of Republican Governor Gary Herbert. According to Herbert, should this bill reach his desk, it will be vetoed. The same thing happened two years ago with a similar bill, which Governor Herbert vetoed. He says that the state’s current gun laws work well, and the current concealed carry permit system provides safeguards such as criminal court checks and…

3 of the Most Popular Pistols in Hollywood

Mar 10, 2015

We all know that a great portion of Hollywood is anti-gun, but what they ironically refuse to give up in their movies are their elaborate action scenes full of dramatic gun fights (for example, take a look at Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon and Kevin Bacon, who are all anti-gun action movie stars). While this hypocrisy is a topic for another day, the same guns seem to be used over and over in many different movies. But what are the most popular pistols in film production? Here are the top three most popular pistols used in Hollywood productions, which all are…

Couple Denied Foster Parenting Roles Due to Concealed Carry Permits

Mar 9, 2015

CARSON CITY — A Nevada couple recently was denied the role of foster parents because they are concealed carry permit holders. Brian and Valerie Wilson are Las Vegas residents who have aspired to become foster parents, leading to eventually adopt children someday. This dream is not going to come true for the time being because they were recently denied due to a state regulation that disallows foster parents to carry loaded weapons. The Wilsons’ home was invaded a year ago, which motivated them to obtain concealed carry permits for protection. “We realized that bad things can happen to good people at…

80% Upper Receiver and Easy Jig by 80% Arms Review – Part 1

Mar 9, 2015

Today, we are going to take a cursory look at two products: The 80% AR-15 lower receiver and the Easy Jig, manufactured and distributed by 80% Arms in Santa Ana, California . To begin with, the 80% AR-15 lower receivers are Spartan-takes-on-the-mil-spec lower.  The machining that was completed by 80% Arms was skillfully done and the safe and semi markings are deep and clear.  The lower is otherwise completely devoid of other markings and looks like a blank canvas, though for an additional fee, 80% Arms will perform custom laser engraving.  Upon close inspection, the finish appears as flawless as…

College Students Fight Florida Guns on Campus Bill

Mar 5, 2015

FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY — Two college students have co-authored an opinion piece for CNN.com that is gaining popularity (click here to read). The authors are University of Southern Florida student body president Jean Cocco and Florida State University student Jade Reindl. The piece they wrote is a haphazard attempt to preach why allowing concealed carry on Florida campuses would make the students less safe, and would promote domestic violence and rape. They even assert this appalling claim: “The presence of a gun in a domestic violence situation increases the woman’s risk of dying by homicide by 500%. That means we need to keep guns away…

Blind Man Shoots his Daughter in Ohio

Mar 4, 2015

TOLEDO, OH — Some sad news recently was released that a 3-year-old girl was recently shot and seriously injured by her own father. At about 1:45 p.m. last Saturday, Toledo police responded to a call about a little girl being shot at the 500 block of Prouty Avenue. Once officials had arrived at the location of the toddler identified as Kaylee Reyes, she was rushed to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center where she was treated for a gun shot wound to her stomach. The girl’s father/shooter, Michael C. Reyes, was booked into the Lucas County jail at roughly 7:30 p.m….

James Madison Tactical 80% Lower Receiver Review – Part 1

Mar 4, 2015

Whether you are an amateur gunsmith or you take comfort in the idea of having a firearm that is completely off the radar of socialist gun-grabbers at all levels of government, you have probably felt what I call the 80 percent itch: The craving to finish your own 80 percent lower. Now that the Great Obama Gun Scare is just about over, we have some time to take a look at how some of these 80 percent AR-15 lowers compare, rather than just buying whatever AR-15 lowers we can find.  In this article, we’re going to take a look at a…

Are Police Body Cameras Really the Answer?

Mar 3, 2015

Editor’s Note: We at GunNews.com would like to thank the Provo Police Department for their invaluable contribution to the writing of this article. Body cameras are a natural progression of technology and law enforcement. GoPros have been hugely popular in the civilian community to capture stunts, pranks and point of view (POV) action. This technology has come a long way since its introduction. Now, it is easy to hold or wear a small video camera capable of capturing images in stunning 1080p High Definition (HD). We as consumers have come to expect this high quality of imagery when watching movies, television,…

Kansas Concealed Carry

West Virginia and Kansas Vote on Permit­less Concealed Carry

Mar 3, 2015

Since the height of violent crime in this country (1991), 25 states have enacted “Right to Carry laws,” and the number of concealed carry permit holders skyrocketed to over 12 million. As a result, the violent crime rate has dropped 51%. Currently, the Federal Government is trying to enact a defacto firearms ban on the AR-­15 by outlawing the ammunition it takes, with the full knowledge (and FBI statistics in hand) that rifles were used in only 2.5% of gun related crimes, the AR-­15 being a small fraction of that. One can only guess their true motives. However, amidst secession chatter, two states in this…

Tactical Meets Practical – The Magpul MBUS Backup Iron Sight

Mar 2, 2015

In this modern world of picatinny rails, flashlights, lasers, bipods, faux bayonets, coffee makers, marital aids, and anything and everything else that has been designed to hang off the front of an AR, it is often tough to decide what will ACTUALLY be used and what will just make you look like a tool at the range. Here on Long Island, our ranges supply benches, and consequently, most shooters get married to them. I have always had a chuckle talking with the mall ninjas that show up — full camo, boots from the army navy store, 16″ AR, shooting a…

Why New Jersey is the Worst Place on Earth

Feb 26, 2015

I know, I know. It might seem like a bit of an overstatement at first. I’ve given this a lot of thought, however, and I’m prepared to defend my position. As a matter of fact, the more thought I give to this topic, the surer I become of the integrity of my article’s title. It started life as “Why New Jersey is (Still) the Worst State in the Union.” The original premise being to point out that New Jersey’s reprehensible history of individual rights violations seems to have been overshadowed, of late, by new, draconian, legislation packages passed in states…

Feb 24, 2015

It is not a huge secret that the California State Legislature and the California Dept. of Justice does not want handguns in California (or any firearm really) in the hands of regular folks like you and I.  Many of them have actually said so, believing that the root of crime is based on the proliferation of guns, which they think can be solved by a slow elimination of handgun types.  These liberals in the State Capitol are further convinced that they can achieve their goals by using a mixture of extortion and bogus technologies while claiming that they are trying…

Every day, hundreds of thousands of men and women wake up and get dressed, put on dark blue, khaki, green, black, or gray pants and shirt. They attach a badge — whether star or shield shaped, it doesn’t matter. They wear a belt with all of the necessary tools to fight violence and lawlessness. They drive in a vehicle emblazoned with “Police” or “Sheriff” or “State Trooper” on the sides and the back, with the requisite light bar on the top. They patrol burgeoning cities and small country towns; congested expressways and desolate stretches of highway, all things announcing to…
