Fort Drum brass destruction threatens reloading supply and more

... "Add to this another source of shortage: The Department of Homeland Security has bought up 'more than 10 times what U.S. troops used in a full year of Iraqi combat,' stoking fears that the government is preparing for some anticipated action. This is likely to provoke concerns among activist gun owners that the renewed brass destruction is intended for the purpose (articulated the last time this came up by ATK) of keeping it out of civilian hands while the government increases and hoards its stores as if its planning something big." ...

"Aside from the NRA ad naming and shaming the President for his “guns of my daughters” hypocrisy, the battle against civilian disarmament has mostly been here, in the trenches. The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) plans on busting through the Maginot line next month with a nationwide print, radio and TV campaign. SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb is tight-lipped (i.e. silent) about the message conveyed. Meanwhile, Alan told TTAG the SAF’s 10 lawyers are working on 30+ lawsuits, burning through $80k a month in fees. “Money is the mother’s milk of politics,” Alan said, not-so-subtly asking for a contribution to upend unconstitutional anti-gun laws like New York’s SAFE Act. ...

"Nobody wants criminals to be armed. Ever. That’s what makes the concept of the universal—that is to say mandatory—background checks so appealing. But in truth, the practice of mandatory background checks raises a lot of flags and may put the brakes on the entire background check system."

"Firearms ownership is a right. And in the U.S., that means a few things. Chiefly that firearms ownership may not be taxed and may not be registered. The Supreme Court and the Firearm Owners Protection Act (FOPA) have reinforced this: enumerated rights have a protected status. Unlike property, income or health insurance, rights cannot be taxed and registries are prohibited." ...

"I have mentioned in previous blog posts that I tend to favor Appendix Inside the Waist Band concealed carry, colloquially known as AIWB for short. While there are a number of different benefits to 'appendix carry', my primary reason for using it is quite simple: It’s better at hiding a pistol than just about any other method I’ve tried. One of the downsides of appendix carry is that shoving a handgun down the front of your pants can be quite uncomfortable." ...
