AK: Shooting from your hind legs — aka offhand shooting — isn’t easy, but it can be useful

“Now you need to shoot from your hind legs,” I said to Christine.

Looking at me as if I had three heads, a look I’ve grown accustomed to, if not fond of, she said, “I don’t have hind legs, I have arms and legs, I’m not a Labrador.”

It’s a phrase I imagine I picked up from some old shooter years ago who had told me I needed to learn to shoot from my hind legs. It worked for me, and the fact it causes Christine to fret forces me to use it every chance I get when in her company.

I expect there are fair number of folks who have heard it as well. But for those who are wondering what the hell I’m talking about, it references shooting while standing with no form of support other than your arms (or front legs) and the hind legs.

“Smart” Guns And Mandatory Storage: Two Bad Policy Ideas Cut From The Same Tattered Cloth

Whenever a tragedy strikes that involves a firearm, no matter how statistically rare the event may actually be, you can count on anti-gun extremists to try to exploit it. The responses from those opposed to the Second Amendment upon hearing that a fatality resulted when a firearm was used by a criminal, or accessed by someone who should not have access, tend to sound fairly similar. If a ban isn’t the response selected from the handful of ideas gun control advocates have been promoting for decades, then added restrictions on law-abiding gun owners is the policy du jour.

In the wake of the mass shooting at a Virginia Beach municipal building that claimed 12 lives in May, the worst in the Commonwealth since the Virginia Tech massacre, Governor Ralph Northam called a special session of the General Assembly to address the scourge of gun violence.

In the weeks following, my colleagues and I coordinated with the Northam administration and gun safety advocates to introduce a robust, evidence-based package of legislation to reduce senseless tragedies.

TX: Julian Castro no habla Second Amendment

Julian Castro, though, is a little tougher to nail down. You have public statements, but mayors, especially in states with pre-emption, like Texas, often leave little more than those statements and policy proposals. What has been locatable, though, points to a candidate who gives lip service to the Second Amendment.

Lip service, though, is all law-abiding citizens who seek to exercise their Second Amendment rights would get. Here’s the scoop. In 2012, Castro and his brother were interviewed by ABC News in the wake of the Sandy Hook mass shooting.

As a follow-up to the insulting, aggressive, and ineffectual attacks on free speech and self-defense that were her “response to” the March 15 murders of 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch New Zealand, NZ Prime Minister Jacinda Arden has taken a great leap forward in the annals of 21st Century state tyranny.

She has proposed a statute that will designate the right to keep and bear arms as a “government-provided privilege.”

Gilroy shooting is yet another indictment of U.S. gun laws

But what is known stands as yet another indictment of the country's broken gun laws. Security was tight at the festival, with the presence of armed officers and the public subject to bag searches and metal detector wands. The gunman apparently gained entry by cutting through a perimeter fence and, using an assault-style weapon, sprayed gunfire from side to side, seemingly indiscriminately. Police said they shot and killed him within one minute. Let that sink in - one minute and three people dead, others wounded, many terrified.

Ed.: If anything, it is an indictment of victim disarmament and 'gun-free' zones, once again.

“Concealed carry is a state law regulated by your state, but I can tell you there are no exceptions under federal law for marijuana used for medical purposes,” Davis said.

House Majority Floor Leader Jon Nichols, R-Oklahoma City, is a bit more outspoken.

“The way we’re gonna handle it in Oklahoma is the same way 29 to 30 other states that have medical marijuana handled it, which is essentially, ‘We’re going to ignore the feds.’”

In the recent state legislative session, three bills were passed that if they become law, will restrict the Second Amendment rights of New Hampshire residents.

House Bill 109 would impose universal background checks on the sale of firearms. Under present law, all commercial sales of firearms (ones done through a licensed dealer) require a background check.

...

Contact Gov. Sununu and tell him to veto House Bills 109, 516 and 564.

Florida State Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried said she doesn’t want to appeal a judge’s ruling which says local officials can't be fined or removed from office for supporting gun safety laws.

However, Governor Ron DeSantis and State Attorney are appealing that ruling, claiming it violates the state constitution.

The 15-page ruling is from a Leon County Circuit judge who ruled that city or county officials can't be punished for passing their own gun laws.

Imagine being careless enough and cruel enough to allow someone to punch such holes in the world deliberately, repeatedly, in the name of a lie. The lie is that we have no choice in this matter. The lie is that any effort, however common-sense, to restrict firearms or lower the capacity of magazines, is part of a vicious scheme to strip you of your freedoms.

The purpose of this column is to explain what has recently transpired at NRA, and to refute the false narratives being spread about the Association. Responsible board members have remained silent until now for legal reasons, but I believe what follows should be said.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Rifles, muskets, long-bows and hand-grenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon — so long as there is no answer to it — gives claws to the weak. — George Orwell
