    Panera Bread Now a No-Gun Zone

    Moms Demand Action has been putting pressure on Panera Bread, a popular sandwich-and-soup chain with more than 1,800 stores throughout the U.S. The company caved under the pressure and will no longer be allowing customers into the building who carry. In a released statement, the company said, “We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer. Panera (PNRA) respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve the environment we are working to create for our guests and associates.” Panera CEO Ron Shaich says that the company will not post anti-gun…

    Cleveland Gun BuyBack Turns into Gun Auction

    CLEVELAND, OH — The city of Cleveland recently held a gun buyback event, which netted them 270 guns. We all know just how stupid buyback programs are, but local gun groups turned out to make this buyback a little more profitable. Gun rights supporters came with cash in hand and purchased guns from the people looking to sell them. The real advantage was that the people selling their guns actually got more money than the city was willing to pay. These citizens also kept good guns from going into a scrap heap. Not all guns at this Cleveland Gun Buyback…

    One Step Forward, Two Steps Back in California

    SACRAMENTO, CA — Just as it seems that we Californians make a bit of progress in securing the right to keep and bear arms, the other shoe drops and we have reevaluate where we are. In some cases, some of us might actually have to listen for footsteps coming from behind.  The reason for this is that the State of California has recently passed two new gun laws that it says will keep people safer.  (Yeah, I’ve heard that lie before, too.) The first of these two laws regards the “do-it-yourself” guns. These are the ones that the state thinks…

CNN Contributor Calls for No Guns in Cars

Feb 26, 2015

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…

Obama Labels 2A Supporters As Domestic Terrorists

Feb 25, 2015

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…

War On Handguns

The War on Handguns in California

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…

Forgiving the Foe — The Nanette Wride Story

Feb 24, 2015

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…

ATF Proposes Big Changes Gun Owners

Feb 20, 2015

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…

NFAFA Director Requests Bills to Fix Unjust Gun Laws

Feb 19, 2015

The NFAFA’s (National Firearms Act Freedom Alliance) chairman and executive director, Todd Rathner, has recently requested that two bills be filed that further protect Second Amendment rights. Rathner, a former NRA lobbyist with 20 years of experience lobbying for the Second Amendment, has high hopes for these bills, which counteract issues in the Defense to Prosecution Statutes in Texas and Tennessee. What is the Defense to Prosecution Statute, exactly? Rathner told GunNews.com a little bit about the statute and its issues. “Essentially, in states like Texas and Tennessee, NFA items are technically illegal. However, if they are legally registered according…

Missouri Governor’s Veto Overridden

Sep 12, 2014

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon recently vetoed Senate Bill 656 which allowed for school teachers to be armed and lowered the age to obtain a concealed carry permit from 21 to 19.  Nixon, a Democrat, has a history of vetoing pro-gun legislation. The law covers the following issues: Allows the open carrying of firearms in all localities with a carry permit.  Some localities currently have ordinances that ban open carrying of firearms, even by those with a valid carry permit. Allows a school district to designate a teacher or administrator to qualify as a school protection officer and carry a firearm…

Utah Teacher Shoots Self in Leg At School

Sep 12, 2014

TAYLORSVILLE, UTAH — An elementary school teacher (who is still unnamed) shot herself in the leg Thursday morning before school started. The teacher shot herself at approximately 8:45 a.m. while she was in the bathroom. No students witnessed the shooting, although according to Granite District Spokesperson Ben Horsley, “a handful” of students may have heard the shot. Horsley also made sure to point out that no students were ever in danger. The school district has refused to release any information about the teacher other than to say that it is a female and she is in stable condition at the hospital. Some…

9/11 — A Nation in Healing

Sep 11, 2014

Thirteen years ago, as all of us remember so well, our country changed forever, as did thousands of families and the skyline of New York City. The National September 11th Museum has been opened for three years now (September 11, 2011). The memorial reminds us as Americans of the tragic loss of so many lives and that single day that brought us as a country together for a few moments, teaching us, once again, what it truly means to be an American. Some have uneasy feelings in their gut about restoring some normalcy to the area. Painful memories linger for Franklin…

New Jersey’s Double Standard — Ray Rice and Shaneen Allen

Sep 11, 2014

A new video released this week to the ever popular website TMZ.com shows Ray Rice, now former running back for the Baltimore Ravens, brutally punching his then fiancé in the head, knocking her unconscious. Rice was suspended for two entire football games when this incident first came to light. The New Jersey prosecutor, Jim McClain, also approved Rice for New Jersey’s Pre-Trial Intervention program. This program keeps Rice out of jail as long as he doesn’t commit any more crimes during a certain period of time. New Jersey Judge Michael Donio gave his stamp of approval for this Pre-Trial Intervention,…

Building A Precision Rifle, Part 1: The Barrel

Sep 9, 2014

Books can be and have been written on the subject of building a precision rifle. Many of them are very comprehensive, very technical and very hard to get through! Let’s take a blunt look at the features required to hit within minute of angle out to 1000 yards. This is not going to be a comparison article, in the traditional sense. Of course, I will express my personal picks on equipment; however, there are several models that have the features we will be discussing. Naturally, our quest begins with the rifle. When it comes to selecting or building a rifle,…

How the ATF Uses Guilt by Association

Sep 9, 2014

It’s not a secret that the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tabacco, Firearms and Explosives has had a severe problem in their leadership structure for the past few years. During this time, the agency (otherwise known as the ATF or BATFE) has seen several high-profile screw-ups. The vast majority of these have had everything to do with regional offices deciding that they can do things their own way, with little or no support, and with even less investigative skill. In essence, the ATF has become an agency that thinks they are above regular law enforcement. Many of us have heard of…

Utah CFPs Issued to Women Grows Rapidly

Sep 4, 2014

As a Utah resident and an instructor, I am proud of the story coming out of Salt Lake City, Utah. The number of permits issued to women is skyrocketing. In 2011, Utah issued 14,000 permits. In 2012, they issued 15,000, and in 2013, 34,597 permits were issued. The State of Utah has not differentiated between resident and non-resident permits, so these numbers certainly reflect the popularity of Utah’s permits with non-resident women. What is prompting this surge in women acquiring permits? It can certainly be surmised that Utah isn’t the only state seeing an increase in women interested in concealed…

A Response to CNN’s Jay Parini on the 2nd Amendment

Sep 4, 2014

Recently a man by the name of Jay Parini, described as ”a poet and novelist,” wrote an op-ed piece for CNN about the killing of the firearms instructor in Arizona by a 9-year old student. In his op-ed, he asks some questions that I have chosen to answer and submit to CNN. I am positive that this article will not appear on their site, but I wanted it out there for others to read. I do not know Mr. Parini, but I am assuming his questions are sincere. (I know, I’m naïve.) Why was a 9-year-old girl allowed even to…

A deranged man armed with a knife attacked young children in their school, killing three and wounding six others, two critically. The attack also injured a teacher. After the attack, the man killed himself by leaping from a building. This attack occurred on the first day of school at Dongfang Primary School in Hubei province.

“I’m a Cop” –An Editorial

Sep 3, 2014

Many ways I could have gone with this editorial. There are a lot of issues that are swirling around this great nation of ours.  Of course, at the top of the list seems to be the shooting incident in Ferguson, MO. Was Brown nothing more than a “gentle giant” at the wrong place at the wrong time? Was the officer who shot him justified or not? The problem with this incident, as with so many that hit the news waves regularly, is that there seems to be an immediate rush to judgment on all sides. The community and family feel…

Veteran Denied Entry Into Amusement Park Because of T-Shirt

Would you believe that a man was denied entry into Six Flags Great Adventure Amusement Park because of a tee-shirt that he had on? The shirt had the American Flag and a Stars and Stripes silhouette of an AR-15 and the words, “Keep Calm and Return Fire” underneath. It’s true, folks. That’s what we’ve degraded to. Mario Alejandro, a 33 year-old Marine who served in the initial invasion of Iraq in 2003, was stopped by a security guard at Great Adventure, saying, “I can’t let you into the park with that shirt on. That shirt’s offensive.” Mario replied that he…

Instructor killed by 9-year old with Uzi – Another Instructor’s View

On Monday, August 25th, Instructor Charles Vacca was fatally shot by a 9-year old girl with a fully automatic Uzi sub-machine gun. While extremely rare, his accidental death is a stern reminder that things can go terribly wrong at the range. Almost immediately following the incident, my phone and inbox exploded with questions and concerns from loved ones about if I have ever been in that position and what I do differently. I feel my practices are better shared publicly than held in, as they could have saved this instructor’s life. Before I go any further, I need to express…

Bill Gates Donates $1 Million for Gun Control

Sep 2, 2014

Eccentric billionaire Bill Gates and his wife Melinda recently donated $1 million towards a Washington State initiative to institute universal background checks known as Ballot Initiative 594. This initiative is being sponsored by The Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility, a known anti-Second Amendment group. The initiative is quite simple; it would extend background checks for all gun sales including gun shows and online sales. Sadly, most people do not understand that a FFL deal is already required to do a background check when selling a firearm. Whether that sale takes place at a gun show or over the internet does…
