Burke E. Strunsky is Insane

"'Laws that mandate a waiting period before buying a gun are well grounded in the fact that humans tend to act impulsively. These waiting periods are wise and necessary. They give people an opportunity to reflect and cool down, to use their heads first and not their handguns.' So sayeth the Senior deputy district attorney for Riverside County (CA) writing for huffingtonpost.com. Burke E. Strunsky fails to take into account a simple fact: when many law-abiding Americans decide to tool-up for the first time to defend themselves against a perceived threat, they don’t make that decision seven days in advance of the realization that they need a gun. How could they? Anyway, Strunsky’s all about the murderous impulse . . ." ...

"I interviewed the real estate mogul in Florida during the Republican convention ... and asked him about his gun ownership. 'I have a carry permit - I’ve said that publicly,' he told me. 'I own a couple of different guns, but I don’t talk about it.'"

"I mentioned that I bought a Sig Sauer P229 in 9mm last February. The billionaire's director of security, Keith Schiller ... said that he also owned a Sig. We discussed the function and fit and styles. The gun owners’ friendly conversation seemed to give Mr .Trump the comfort to give out details on his gun collection." ...

"What is being defined as a 'snub' of Gun Talk – the popular syndicated national Sunday radio program – by the popular Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) has ignited a fury in the firearms community, and late Wednesday afternoon, this column learned that the Knife Rights organization has also entered the fray."

"Doug Ritter, chairman and executive director of the activist knife group, confirmed to Examiner via e-mail that he had sent a letter to WWP Public Affairs Director Leslie A. Coleman, questioning what he called the 'irrational basis' of what appears to be 'discrimination towards firearms and, by association, the industry and (gun) owners.'" ...
 

Gun Review: Thompson 1927A1 (video available)

"Contextualizing the Thompson isn't easy. It was developed at the end of World War One. There were no guns like it. While there were machine guns, most were huge, heavy, and they fired rifle ammunition. Soldiers on all sides carried bolt-action rifles into battle."

"But battle had changed. There was a distinct need for a weapon with higher capacity, a more rapid fire action, and more maneuverability. Rifle ammunition wasn't necessary either, as many conflicts were happening at shorter ranges. Trench warfare was the norm, and soldiers often found themselves turning corners and facing the unknown. Best to hose down the unknown with as much lead as possible. Thompson dubbed his new gun 'the trench broom.'" ...

"The AK-12, the latest firearm platform to come from Izhmash, will be available with a commercial variant for sale sometime in 2013, according to reports from the Firearm Blog and their Russian contacts. The AK-12 represents the most fundamental shift in the AK design ever, complete with all the features you expect from a modern rifle but with the track record of the most successful small arm ever made."

"From these new photos, it is clear that the AK-12 is still undergoing revision, as they've updated the magazine well, magazine release, barrel profile, muzzle, muzzle devices and front and rear sights. Izhmash is currently testing the design with help from the Russian Ministry of Defense as well as competitive shooters." ...

"Back in July, I reviewed a two day class that I had attended at the SIG Sauer Academy, 'Civilian Response to Terrorist Threats.' The class was designed and is taught by Todd Rassa of Tactical Defense Readiness Concepts. The curriculum focuses on the methods and motivations of Islamic Fundamentalists in the hopes of preparing the students to survive an encounter, should one happen here in the United States.

"The women in my family don’t like shooting as a recreational sport or hobby. They all know how to operate various weapons and some are naturals with pistols, but they don’t go to the range for fun. As far as tactical weapons go, the loud crack from a semi-automatic carbine, the shoulder thump from a shotgun, or just the weight alone of a battle rifle definitely does not improve things for them."

"However, should a dismal future world ever warrant 'that every man –and woman– be armed', I wanted to have something to give them that was more than a pistol when it came to capacity and range, yet didn’t bruise their delicate shoulders. I really wanted to stay with a caliber which I kept in stock and might be easier to find. ..." ...

"We noticed some muzzle-flash during the day, but during the night-time segment of the course, the flash was quite prominent – downright obnoxious in fact." ...

"The incident provided a valuable lesson to students on the importance of test-firing their personal defense ammunition in low-light conditions to make sure there is little or no muzzle flash so as not to mark one’s position for return fire from bad guys."

"Gun control advocates have a major switch across their ass about gun shows. The fact that Americans can buy and sell firearms without government oversight is a source of endless aggro. That they can do it in public is the ultimate affront to their sense of self-importance. It doesn’t matter that the vast majority of guns used in crimes are stolen property. Or that gun dealers at gun shows must run a background check on all firearms purchases. Close the 'gun show loophole'! Every now and then these advocates wander into what the rest of us call the real world and visit an actual gun show. Needless to say, they’re about as open-minded about the experience as a PETA member at a chicken processing plant . . ." ...

So, the election did not mean complete defeat for the GOP."

"'I don’t think that the ATT is a gun confiscation measure for a variety of reasons,' Ted Bromund, a Heritage senior research fellow in Anglo-American relations, said on Tuesday.

"The first round of UN Arms Trade Treaty talks may have fallen apart ... this past July, but as Ted Bromund over at Heritage noted at the time, 'Now that the concept of the ATT has been invented, it cannot be uninvented. There are too many countries and too many left-wing nongovernmental organizations that want a treaty.' He was right and as Katie reported last week, it didn’t take very long to initiate another attempt. One question she raised in her post deserves more attention: 'Is the argument from the U.N. that it won't suppress Second Amendment rights an honest one?' And what about the Obama administration’s argument that they'“will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms'?" ...
