    Illinois Governor Wants Weapons Ban

    SPRINGFIELD, IL — Surprise, surprise, surprise. The governor of Illinois wants to ban military-style weapons. Wow, who would have seen this coming? Governor Pat Quinn is pushing a ban on military-style weapons during his campaign for re-election. Quinn recently appeared with the Phillips, who lost their daughter in the theater shooting in 2012. Quinn held the event near a subway station where a man recently opened fire on a train, injuring no one and getting apprehended. Of course he held it there–he would have held the event on the top of a child’s casket if he could have found one….

    Shaneen Allen is Finally Out of the Woods

    On September 26, Jim Mclain, Prosecutor for Atlantic County, New Jersey, announced that he will not be seeking a prison sentence for Shaneen Allen. The Philadelphia working mother of two was infamously arrested on October 1, 2013 on weapons charges after she revealed to a New Jersey state trooper during a routine traffic stop that she was in possession of a firearm. Allen, 27, is a Pennsylvania concealed carry permit holder and was unaware that New Jersey does not have a reciprocal agreement with Pennsylvania concerning such permits. You can bet that she became aware of that fact in a…

    Gaston Glock Meets His Match: The Ex-Wife

    Gaston Glock has met his match, and it isn’t a rival gun company. No, his match is his ex-wife Helga and their three grown kids. Can we just take a minute and admire what an awesome name Helga Glock is? I wouldn’t want to fight anyone named Helga. This is name is just plain awesome. She sounds like an  evil character in a James Bond movie. Anyway… It seems that Gaston tried to cheat Helga and the kids out of millions of dollars that she is owed in their divorce. She and Gaston started the Glock company together back in…

    The Wonderful World of .45′s

    Sometimes, in the world of firearms, we get wrapped up in the latest and greatest guns, gear and ammo. There’s nothing wrong with this, but it’s also good to have a refresher on our old standbys that have gotten us where we are today. In this article, I want to take a look at the .45. The .45 and all of its iterations have been around for a long time, and this caliber has provided us with great rounds and a rock-solid caliber for personal defense. .45 Schofield Generally speaking, the .45 Schofield is used today in the cowboy shooting…

E.P. Armory Starts to Win Over the A.T.F.

Oct 16, 2014

As some of my readers have followed the latest developments in the E.P. Armory epic saga with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (otherwise known as the A.T.F.), there have been several chapters. As some of you may remember, the A.T.F. (complete with Fully-Automatic rifles, full Body Armory, and a Bomb squad) raided E.P. Armory in Bakersfield, CA in March of this year.  As with any good story, a new chapter has been written (the previous of which can read about in my previous article entitled, “How the A.T.F. uses Guilt of Association”).  In the latest E.P. Armory…

Henry H009 – Built to Hunt

Oct 16, 2014

Every  so often, I pick up a tool or a piece of machinery, and I exclaim, “Now, this is just made for_____!” with the blank being just about anything from clearing thorn bushes to getting a stripped bolt out from the back of a brake caliper. I had one of these moments just a few weeks ago when I first picked up the H009 – Henry lever-action .30-30 rifle. Holding it in awe, one thing was clear–this rifle was built to take whitetail deer. Lever actions are the middle ground between the accuracy of a bolt-action and the follow-up shot…

Universal Background Checks Not What They Seem

Oct 15, 2014

Universal background checks are a hot button issue in this year’s election cycle. The November elections are less than a month away, and Washington State is facing a battle over gun rights, especially universal background checks. The people supporting I-594, an initiative that calls for universal background checks, claim that this initiative will close the “gun show loophole,” which is a liar’s way of saying that they want to end person-to-person gun sales. Some reading this article may think that I have made a leap of logic, since this initiative only calls for background checks on deals between private citizens;…

10 Year Old Boy Beats 90 Year-Old to Death

Oct 15, 2014

DAMASCUS TOWNSHIP, PA — I wish to God that this was an Onion headline with some witty banter inside that had a funny story to tell us, but this is a real story involving real people, and it happened right here in the United States. A 10 –year-old Pennsylvania boy by the name of Tristen Kurilla became angry because a 90 year old woman had yelled at him. He took the woman’s cane and held it against her throat and continuously punched her in the head and face, ultimately causing her death. The boy has been arrested and charged as an…

Experiment Proves America’s Youth to be Blissfully Ignorant (VIDEO)

Oct 14, 2014

What would you do if our nation’s young, up-and-coming leaders followed the media, lazily going with the flow and doing as they are told without a single question? Whatever your answer was, you better get to it, because that is happening now. Political activist and author Mark Dice filmed a political prank on a college campus last spring, holding a clipboard in hand, asking students to sign a petition to get rid of the Second Amendment. He has quite a bit of fun with this prank, taking his petition requests to the next level. Casually throwing out statements, like, “Will…

The Magic 40%: Anti-Gun Politicians Lie to Public

Oct 14, 2014

November elections are getting closer and the anti-gun politicians and activists are pulling out all of stops to get their new background check law in Washington State passed. Big money is being spent and much of it is coming from very wealthy individuals who are attempting to sway the election. Gates, Bloomberg, Ballmer and other wealthy leftists are in this fight with contributions having reached the $8 million dollar mark. The $8 million isn’t the real problem, though. The real problem is that the left and their minions are willing to go on national television to lie to the American…

Big Bore Revolvers

Oct 13, 2014

It is no secret that I love revolvers. I don’t have anything against pistols, I’ve owned many throughout the years, but to me, there is something special about a revolver; I should say, rather, that there is many “somethings” about revolvers that make them special. Pull the trigger—gun goes off. No failure to feed, no failure to eject. No manual safeties to mess with (not necessarily unique to revolvers, but always present in a revolver). Larger range of available calibers (.22Lr all the way to .45-70 and bigger) Easy to use Revolvers have more than passed the test of time….

Oklahoma Debates Concealed Carry on Campuses

Oct 13, 2014

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — The Great state of Oklahoma is in a heated debate right now, centered on the right to bear arms on college campuses. Representative John Enns, republican-Enid, is a huge supporter of on campus carry. Enns said, “People are wanting to be legal. They feel in jeopardy. They want to protect themselves.” Makes sense to me, and to most people, too. As would be expected, the college administration is adamantly opposed to the idea and change in law.  President Burns Hargis, President of Oklahoma State University, said, “If we want to experiment with this idea, I suggest…

Bigger Is Better: Learning To Shoot a Rifle Instead of a Pistol

Oct 9, 2014

Living in a part of the country where firearms knowledge is deficient, there lie many misconceptions. Today, I’d like to address one that surfaces every time we promote our beginners rifle course, and that is bigger firearms have bigger recoil. I am on record recommending that every new shooter’s first firearm be a rifle, preferably a rimfire. I know I’ve reached someone when, after their first shot is fired, they look to me and say, “That’s it?!“ Unfortunately, I am sure that we have lost a few would-be shooters to the false notion that rifles (all rifles) are capable of…

Boston University Bias Research Against Guns

Oct 8, 2014

Boston, MASS — Boston University School of Public Health has decided that they need to join in the anti-gun agenda. Using the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary as an impetus, the school decided to conduct some “research” into guns as a public health issue. According to an observational study which was published in October’s American Journal of Public Health, “What it showed me is that there was very little discussion of science. It was almost all politics and ideology. It is important to bring science into this.” The study was written by Michael Siegel, lead author of the study and…

Mossberg MMR: The Coolest Little Carbine for the Money

Oct 8, 2014

Many of us have been in search of that perfect AR-15 that will both suit our want for a tactical carbine but also suit our budget. If you’re anything like me, that process has become so long and laborious that you’ve wanted to pull your hair out.  We’ve wanted what I think can be aptly described as the Every Man’s Rifle, and we’ve come up wanting every time — that is, until now, with the advent of the Mossberg MMR (Mossberg Modern Rifle). Much like the Mossberg 500 series shotguns (which are affordable and well-built),  The Mossberg MMR Series of…

On October 18th, 2014, the NRA is taking their university program to Yale University—heart of the liberal Ivy League. This program has the goal of teaching university students about the Second Amendment as well as gun safety and the use of firearms in self-defense. According to the NRA website, “NRA U is a two-hour training seminar for college students interested in learning more about NRA, the Second Amendment, gun safety, legislative threats to gun rights and the gun control debate. NRA-ILA staff will travel to a college campus and provide seminar attendees with the tools they’ll need to become more…

F.B.I. Looks to Switch to 9mm

Oct 7, 2014

Miami, Florida 1986 was the epicenter of change for handgun cartridges. The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) was involved in a bloody shootout 11 April 1986. It was just another beautiful day in South Florida until eight agents of the FBI attempted to apprehend two serial bank robbers. These criminals, Michael Lee Platt and William Russell Matix, had been on a crime spree for some time when the FBI agents caught up with them.  A major gun battle ensued in which both suspects were ultimately killed. The FBI also lost two agents, Jerry Dove and Ben Grogan, and five others were…

University of Wyoming Faculty Votes to Ban Firearms

Oct 7, 2014

LARAMIE, WY — The University of Wyoming Faculty Senate has voted to disallow concealed and open carry on their campus. In the past, Wyoming has attempted to make it legal to concealed carry on school grounds and has been unsuccessful. The University of Wyoming Faulty Senate Chair, Ed Janak, has led the charge to suppress the Second Amendment. He said, “Given that we don’t want to continue on an ‘every two year’ basis acting in such ways that would suggest we only care about things when they threaten us immediately, this bill was drafted so we are on record, permanently,…

Piers Morgan Vows to Make Anti-Gun Documentary

Oct 7, 2014

Piers Morgan, failed CNN TV Show host, has now vowed to make an anti-gun documentary. In his quest to show the world that he isn’t a loser, Piers has told the media that he has a “big” Hollywood name that is close to committing millions of dollars towards this new project. I miss Piers Morgan. I had forgotten what a truly pathetic and tiny man he was until now. He is making a big to-do over this supposed documentary, telling Politico, “I’ve been approached by a couple of big independent producers in Hollywood to make [an anti-gun documentary],” Morgan recently…

I am also sure that you have seen all the news that came out in the last two days about the movie, American Sniper. If you have heard about it you may interested to know that iconic actor, producer and Second Amendment advocate Clint Eastwood, is directing the movie.  Mr. Eastwood has directed two other true…

Update on Ferguson Missouri Shooting of Michael Brown

Oct 3, 2014

It has been almost two months since Michael Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson Missouri police officer, and we aren’t any closer to knowing the complete truth. Many people, including me, have opinions about whether the shooting was justified or not. But, the reality is that we really do not know everything that happened that hot summer day in Ferguson. What we do know is that this entire situation has been handled in an unprofessional and reckless manner. From the very beginning, the police acted as an occupying army, fanning the flames of racial tension and discord between…

10 Questions Gun Owners Can’t Stand, and Our Favorite Answers.

From time to time, every gun owner finds themselves in a situation where they are being prodded by somebody in complete awe that they are ACTUALLY speaking to somebody who owns firearms and even dares to go to a shooting range. I have been to many New York dinner parties where, from the other side of the room, you can see me looking for someone to save me. Of the questions that arise, I’ve compiled a list of reoccurring questions that most gun owners will agree irritate them in one way or another. So, without further ado, here are my…

Where Did All the .22 Ammo Go, to Wal-Mart?!

There have been a quite a few theories and stories about Wal-Mart Employees hoarding .22 Ammunition. We’ve heard of local store managers and department managers keeping their .22 Long Rifle stock behind the counter for “select customers,” namely family and friends of employees in sporting goods. At other times, we’ve heard of rumors of stocking crew members keeping some of it stashed in the back of the store so that employees could have a shot at getting some after their shift.  We have also seen hidden camera videos on YouTube of such occurrences. It has made us mad. It has…
