    A Little Boy Captures My Heart, Then Breaks It

    WEST JORDAN, UT — This article has nothing to do with guns, the Second Amendment or politics. It has nothing to do with criminals, conservatives or liberals. This article has to do with something that we do not see very often anymore—kindness. My job requires me to read a lot, and much of what I read is of a negative or violent nature. Much of what I write tends to polarize people, but today, I write about a community coming together to help a little boy say goodbye to his parents and his earthly existence. Ethan Van Leuven was born…

    SilencerCo’s Newest Products

    There are many up-and-coming companies out there currently making silencers and silencer-related products (mounts, muzzle breaks, flash hiders, pistons, etc.).  SilencerCo is one of the leaders of the pack and has had an outstanding reputation for making quality products since 2008.  They just recently announced the newest editions to their upcoming lineup of silencer products.  They will be adding threaded barrels for Glock models 17, 17L, 34, 19 and 21 as well as barrels for the Sig P226.

    A Response to Joseph Rogan’s Gun Control Editorial

    Another liberal has figured out how to use a computer and the Internet and has now written an editorial for thetimes-tribune.com. Joseph Rogan’s arguments are laughably uneducated and false, so the time has come to call him out and point out how his article is rife with lies, falsehoods and flat out bogus information. Like most liberals, he is for “sane measures to improve gun safety, such as universal background checks, which are supported by 90 percent of all Americans.” Apparently, Rogan was absent the year they taught the Bill of Rights in school. Opinion does not matter when it…

    An Interview with a Young Marine: Issues of Today

    It’s 2014. ISIS, or ISIL. Ebola. FEAR. Gun Control. Corruption. (Another election approaches.) Democrats — the word that scares people these days. That – and Republicans! That’s a summary of the news headlines going into this interview. I had the opportunity to spend part of a day in October 2014 with a 23 year-old Marine Sergeant, honorably discharged in 2013, after four years of service that included three combat deployments to Afghanistan. The Marine is now in his second year of college, majoring in Public Safety, with career aspirations with the U.S. Marshalls, DEA, or FEMA. I have a strong…

    Stainless Steel Brass Tumbling Using Stainless Tumbling Media

    I am always on the lookout for what I see as cool products that can make my life easier and my hobby of reloading more enjoyable. I have recently found such a product. Stainless Tumbling Media in Orem, Utah makes a tumbling kit that will clean your brass like nothing you have ever seen. If you are currently using a dry tumbler, like I have been, you know that it works well, but that it also leaves something to be desired in the area of cleaning those primer pockets as well as the inside of the casing. It is also…

American Hero: 2nd Lt. Joshua Nelson

Oct 27, 2014

DEL RIO, TX — This will not come as a big surprise to those of us in the gun community, but would be a real shock to the system of your average sheeple.  A concealed carry holder was able to stop an assault in progress and detain the suspect for the police. The incident involved a 2nd Lt., a deranged man, a woman, a knife and a Wal-Mart store. For those of you who don’t know, Del Rio, Texas is home to a large undergraduate pilot training program for the U.S. Air Force. 2nd Lt. Nelson is there to receive…

The Second Amendment Preservation Acts and the NRA

Oct 27, 2014

There may be hope yet. There is an expanding movement by the American people to challenge federal power. Surprisingly, this all has its roots in the 10th Amendment in the Bill of Rights that explicitly limits the powers of the federal government to those granted by our Constitution. This concept has green lighted a push to protect the people’s 2nd Amendment. A growing number of states have proposed bills in their legislators that challenge and defy federal control over firearms. At least ¾ of all U.S. States have proposed laws challenging the federal government’s involvement in areas, deemed by these…

What Happened to The .41 Magnum?

Oct 27, 2014

I recently published an article about big bore revolvers and many readers asked why I hadn’t included the .41 magnum with these other bog bore calibers. As I read the comments (and I do read the comments), I saw their point; why hadn’t I included this great caliber with the big bores? The answer is that it slipped my mind, but in retrospect, the .41 magnum really deserves its own article.  So, this article is for Pete, Lt.Col (ret.) William Satmary, and the other die-hard fans of the .41 magnum. The .41 magnum suffered from a poorly-timed introduction. Had it…

Pennsylvania State Legislature Passes Pro-Gun Bill

Oct 23, 2014

HARRISBURG, PA—The liberals in the State of Pennsylvania are up in arms over a bill that was recently passed in the state Senate as well as the house. The bill would give a “person” the right to sue local governments, if those local governments pass strict gun laws. The liberals are freaking out over the definition of “person” in this bill. To quote the bill, a “person includes a membership organization in which a member is a person who may legally possess a firearm under federal and state law or a dealer who sells firearms and ammunition.” This means that…

1st and 2nd Amendments Square Off

Oct 23, 2014

An interesting situation is brewing in Minnesota between two neighbors, Matthew Halleck and Kimberly Edson. Halleck is a concealed carry holder who walks his daughters to school every day and carries a firearm with him while he does. Edson doesn’t like it. She is fearful of her and everyone else’s children being around a loaded firearm. This, in and of itself, isn’t uncommon. Many people are afraid of guns—mostly out of lack of experience and under-education in the area of firearms. But, Edson has decided to take her distaste for Halleck’s choice to carry to a new level. She has…

Weapon or Firearm? Not the Same Thing

Oct 22, 2014

When I sat down for my first instructor credential, there was a lot of information thrown at me. The material pertaining to the actual usage and function of rifles came naturally, along with the fundamentals of marksmanship. While nothing is ever boring, there wasn’t a lot of new information that flowed my way that weekend. However, I did find the material specific to teaching method very interesting–particularly the usage of the word “weapon.” Members and instructors of both the police and military use this word almost exclusively when they are addressing a firearm. In this arena, it makes perfect sense….

34,500 People Deemed Too Dangerous to Own Guns in NY by New York SAFE Act

Oct 22, 2014

Thank you, New York State and Governor Cuomo, for proving that the government is incompetent and dangerous. The New York SAFE Act, which is an abomination and defies the Bill of Rights, has another feather in its collective dunce cap. This feather signifies exactly how stupid a government databases consisting of a list of those deemed to be potentially dangerous to themselves or others can be. The SAFE Act requires health care professionals to submit the names of patients who they see as a danger to themselves or others. This database now has 34,500 names on it. The New York…

Feminist Cancels Utah Appearance—Blames CFP Law: Anita Sarkeesian

Oct 21, 2014

Anita Sarkeesian, a noted feminist, was scheduled to speak at Utah state University in Logan Utah but has cancelled her appearance. She tweeted: The death threat is one that has been made to her before at other events. The threat said, “I have at my disposal a semi-automatic rifle, multiple pistols, and a collection of pipe bombs. This will be the deadliest school shooting in American history and I’m giving you a chance to stop it. Even if they’re able to stop me, there are plenty of feminists on campus who won’t be able to defend themselves. One way or…

Illinois Governor Wants Weapons Ban

Oct 20, 2014

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

Oct 20, 2014

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

Oct 20, 2014

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

Oct 20, 2014

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…
