The .32 Smith & Wesson is a small pistol cartridge intended for use as personal protection at close range. The S&W Model 1½ break-top revolver was the first platform for the cartridge. Intended for use at “card table distances,” the .32 S&W was considered the smallest cartridge acceptable for personal protection in its time. It fit the bill for being a gentleman’s vest gun – a small handgun for the vest pocket that was especially popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century. It was later surpassed by the .32 ACP. The .32 S&W may also be referred to as the .32 S&W Short.

A few weeks ago I received a packet of information from one of our readers. As so often happens, this proved to be a gold mine of information. One of the things the reader sent along was a copy of a handwritten letter written to his father dating back 70 years. The letter was from Gordon Boser and is here reprinted for posterity. Boser was a gunsmith and a sixgun wildcatter dating back to the 1940s, known for his work with the .40 sixgun cartridge, which was definitely in the Magnum category.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has announced a two-week “stay home” order that lists marijuana shop workers as “essential” to the workforce, while noticeably absent from the list are firearms and ammunition distributors and retailers, although they apparently are considered essential in other states.

A spokesman in the governor’s office advised Liberty Park Press Tuesday afternoon that the shut down does apply to gun stores.

On March 20th, the Attorney General submitted an amended ballot title for Initiative Petition 40. The state Supreme Court previously sided with NRA on several points in a challenge against IP 40, finding the title and “yes” result statement inadequate to alert voters of the changes proposed to the law. The final, modified title now reads... “Requires locking firearm/using locked storage (exceptions), reporting loss, supervising minors' use. Penalties/strict liability.”

Governor Jim Justice’s recent Executive Order No. 9-20 designates “firearm and ammunition suppliers and retailers” under “Essential Businesses and Operations,” exempting them from being shut down during this state of emergency. In doing so, Gov. Justice reaffirms that the Second Amendment is the law of the land while other jurisdictions are using the pandemic as an excuse to strip Americans of their fundamental right of self-defense.
 

Yes, You Need a Gun During the Virus Scare..and After

You want to have a gun before you need it. Advocates of armed defense have been saying that for decades, though recent events underlined their point. Last month, sentencing reforms in some states effectively decriminalized theft under about 900$. We saw stores stripped by flash-mobs of shoplifters. Police refused to investigate a “misdemeanor” crime even though the total loss may be tens-of-thousands of dollars. Those sentencing revisions also let more serious criminals out of jail without bail. The revolving door of injustice spun pretty fast after that. Last week, some cities let convicted thugs out of jail because of a flu virus.

Governor Doug Ducey’s recent Executive Order 2020-12 designates “firearm and ammunition suppliers and retailers for purposes of safety and security” under "Essential Businesses and Operations," exempting them from being shut down during this state of emergency. In doing so, Gov. Ducey properly upheld Arizona Revised Statute 26-303.J, which your NRA helped to pass, and reaffirms that the Second Amendment is the law of the land while other jurisdictions are using the pandemic as an excuse to strip Americans of their fundamental right of self-defense.

Under orders from government officials, many local jails and state prisons across America are sending bad guys — allegedly non-violent offenders — out into the community and not arresting some criminals.

Business across America is grinding to a halt. Some of this is due to self-isolation and some to stay-at-home orders by government officials. There are exceptions for businesses critical to maintaining a functioning society. Gun businesses need to be among them.

The latest victim of the COVID-19 pandemic is not a health care worker, a first responder, or a cruise line traveler. The purveyor is not an invisible microbe. The perpetrators of the latest assault on men and women in cities and states across the country are left-wing governors and mayors who have decided the pandemic provides a convenient excuse to deny law-abiding citizens the freedom to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

Los Angeles, the nation’s largest county with 10 million residents, enacted a stay-at-home order last week that required all nonessential businesses to close to slow the spread of the virus.

Officials with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said a post floating around on Facebook about current hunting seasons is fake.

The season for everyone else begins on April 4.

Iowa’s hunting and fishing regulations are not affected by the current COVID-19 health emergency in Iowa. Despite rumors on social media channels, the DNR has no plans to eliminate seasons, relax regulations or change license prices. “Fishing and hunting regulations exist to protect human safety as well as wildlife populations over the long-term,” said Dale Garner, Conservation and Recreation division administrator at the Iowa DNR. “We balance the long-term sustainability of Iowa’s natural resources with the well-being of Iowans, and will continue to take a thoughtful, science-based approach to Iowa’s hunting and fishing laws.”
