The dust has settled and the evidence is in: The 1960s Great Society and War on Poverty programs of President Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) have been a colossal and giant failure. One might make the argument that social welfare programs are the moral path for a modern government. They cannot, however, make the argument that these are in any way effective at alleviating poverty.

The rally was organized by the Wise County Patriots Group.

Virginia lawmakers voted Friday to ban guns in the state Capitol building, the first of what is expected to be many votes on gun control legislation now that Democrats have retaken control of the statehouse for the first time in over 25 years. Anyone with a concealed carry permit was previously allowed to bring a gun into the Capitol, although firearms were banned in certain parts of the building, according to The Associated Press. Democrats have said the new law is a safety measure, and Democratic Governor Ralph Northam previously outlawed guns in some state buildings.

Amidst the cacophony of calls for him to resign, Rep. Shea has said, “I will not back down, I will not give in, I will not resign…. I will continue to defend the Constitution against tyranny and fight to protect our God given unalienable rights to life, liberty, property, and the ability to defend the same.”.

One of my most-vivid memories as a rambunctious and curious little girl was the day I snuck into the dark closet in the back of my grandfather’s home. Poised at the top of a mountain above sprawling sugar cane fields in the tropical oasis of north Queensland, Australia, the house was so far removed from any other human beings that being there felt like standing—teetering—on the edge of the earth. The wild soundtrack of the place, a sound we fell asleep to each night, was the evocative call of curlews and dingoes whining at the moon

Even though it’s raining, people are walking throughout downtown Lexington, going to various stores and restaurants, enjoying their day in this small, sleepy Southern town of fewer than 19,000 people. On one side of the old courthouse square is Conrad and Hinkle Food Store, a relic of an older time. On the opposite side, is a coffee shop.
 

Holster Review: Comp-Tac eV2 Max

Today’s concealed carry holsters must combine two features that used to be mutually exclusive: comfort and security. In the old days of IWB holsters, you had to pick which one mattered more, giving up the other. Leather holsters were comfortable but didn’t hold the gun very securely because they were usually designed for a variety of guns. When Kydex taco-shell molds first appeared, they did a great job of conforming to the nuances of the specific gun, but the hard-plastic shell pushed against the waistline, gouging with every movement. But then the hybrid revolution started and suddenly both comfort and security started to play together in the same sandbox.

The recent shooting deaths of two cow elk on a popular Park City trail system has rekindled long-simmering tensions between some Utah cities and wildlife officials over where hunting should be allowed. As Utah’s population swells, more people are living and playing near and on public lands that have long been used for big game hunting. Hunters are increasingly stalking deer and elk near homes and recreation areas, such as Park City’s Round Valley and Huntsville’s Cemetery Point, that didn’t exist a generation ago.
 

AZ: Jonathan Hoffman- Proposed Gunshow Ban Violates First, Second Amendment

In the past, I have defended the notion that there is a hierarchy in the Bill of Rights. Specifically, the first two amendments in relation to the rest. There are three aspects of human existence: spiritual, intellectual and physical. The First Amendment covers the spiritual and the intellectual, while the second covers the physical. With the possible exception of the Ninth Amendment, the rest are procedural. It is the first two that define a free citizen. So, if you really want to make a libertarian see red, try fooling with the First or Second Amendments in the Bill of Rights.
 

AK: Even if you don’t have a gun rack in your truck, it’s useful to have a truck gun

“Too bad we don’t have a rifle,” the driver sitting across from my open window announced as a coyote came out of a brush line a couple of hundred yards away. We had met and stopped along a back road outside of town that I frequented during lunch breaks, preferring the drive out to see what was up in the country to sitting in a restaurant.

“I have a rifle,” I said, “but I’m not going to shoot that coyote.”

I was dressed in a suit and tie for a court appearance in the afternoon, and showing up stinking of coyote and smeared with blood would not be a good choice.

“You have a rifle,” my friend asked.

“You don’t,” I said.

“Why do you have a rifle?” he asked. “Don’t you worry someone will steal it?”

Viginia Democrats have full control of the state government, and they are making the most of it. Less than two days after Virginia opened the 2020 legislative session, newly empowered lawmakers voted to pass a total ban on guns at the state capitol and legislative office buildings. Previously, those with a valid concealed handgun permit were allowed to bring a gun into the Capitol. Weapons were banned only in the Senate gallery and the governor's office. "Our focus is to keep everybody safe," said Democratic House speaker Eileen Filler-Corn. "These are policies and rules that should have passed a long, long time ago."

 

New for 2020: Kriss USA Vector .22 Long Rifle

One of the most unique firearms introduced in recent years is the Kriss USA Vector platform, which incorporated an innovative "Super-V" recoil-mitigation system that made the compact platform more manageable to shoot, particularly in its original .45 ACP chambering. Though Kriss USA expanded its Vector lineup in multiple ways, including different calibers and configurations, one chambering that never made its way into the company's lineup was .22 Long Rifle. All that changes in 2020 with the launch of the all-new Kriss Vector .22 Long Rifle.

Those within the gun-control movement who like to blithely ask, “What’s the worst that could happen?” should look no further than what happened to Stephen Nichols. In September, Nichols, an 84-year-old Korean War veteran and retired police officer, was summarily fired from his job as a school crossing guard in Tisbury, Mass. Worse still, Nichols’ guns and firearms license (which he had held since 1958) were seized from him under Massachusetts’ broad “red-flag” law.

There is just something fun about shooting big bore handguns. The popularity of large revolvers took off in 1971 with the release of Dirty Harry. Overnight, Clint Eastwood's use of the .44 Magnum Smith & Wesson Model 29 as a sidearm made the gun a household name..
