... "'The pendulum has definitely been swinging in favor of expanded gun rights,' SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb said. 'For too long, people were fooled by hysteria and misinformation from gun prohibitionists and their cheerleaders in the press. But their alarmist rhetoric has failed the test of time and now Americans by greater percentages than we’ve seen in generations are realizing that gun rights are important to our security as a nation and to public safety in our own neighborhoods.'"

"The Top Shot tsuris continues. During last Tuesday’s episode Jake Zweig Tweeted that the show was more fiction than fact: 'No I called BS on the whole show being completely fake….. when Mike came back the whole house tried to leave!!!!!!!!' And now Season Two competitor and Bronze Star recipient Ashley Spurlin [above center] has commented about Top Shot on TTAG, and it ain’t pretty. Full text after the jump. Bottom line: 'The show is a complete farce and I would never have set foot in that house if I knew what I knew now.' Sour grapes? Show biz? Scandal? We report, you deride. But keep this in mind: if Top Shot is rigged, chances are it’s breaking the law on prize competitions . . ." ...
 

Open Carry Shuts Down Occupy Atlanta When Nothing Else Could

"We’ve all seen the sympathetic saturation media coverage of the Occupy 'movement' these last few weeks. What started as ten or twenty slackers protesting Wall Street, capitalism and people they non-specifically identify at 'the 1%' has slowly grown and spread to various cities across the country and overseas. ... [I]t's been mostly harmless, if you overlook inconveniences such as petty theft, public defecation and the occasional rape here and there. Complaints from neighboring businesses and residents haven't been enough to prompt otherwise-supportive, linguine-spined mayors to shut the squatters' settlements down in most cities. Until, that is, someone showed up with a legally carried gun…" ...

"Nothing pisses me off more than getting a new pistol shipped from the factory with a crappy trigger. To wit, my new S&W M&P45c. I picked this gun up because the Sheriff's Office I work for mandates we carry a .40 or .45. Unfortunately, when I moved back to Montana, I only had 9's, 10's and 357's. The M&P fits me perfectly and fills a dual niche of duty carry and concealed carry. It sports graceful good looks that make my Glocks envious, all in a nice 'man-sized' caliber (as my sergeant would call it.) Despite everything I like about this gun, the stock trigger was gritty, came with an advertised 7 lb. pull weight and had no noticeable reset. Obviously this would never do." ...

"I’ve had a couple people ask me where the 1,000 yard rifle for $500 project went. Truth be told, it’s been done for months. The only problem is that the USMC has been tying up the range at Quantico and I haven’t had a chance to put the finishing touches on my article. In the meantime, have an updated picture of the rifle. At the top is what version 1.0 looked like, a Mossberg 100 ATR with some added goodies. Make the jump for the latest incarnation." ...

"Here’s a quick exercise for taking a good thumbs-forward grip with a semi-auto pistol. It offers a great deal of control, which might explain why it’s currently the standard grip for top practical shooters. Fortunately, it’s also easy for novices to learn. It might feel a little awkward at first, so start practicing with no gun at all, just to get a accustomed to it . . ." ...

I want it to be a small (cheap) book that you could hand a new shooter and they would be able to learn everything they needed to know to safely own and fire guns without having to go search the internet, including everything from firearms safety to selecting your first firearm. Which is where your question comes in — by answering it here I not only answer another one of our reader’s questions but I also knock a chapter off the list of things to do.

"I’m nearly blind without the help of corrective spectacles. I’ve been that way my entire life, and consider myself interested in optics more than your average American. I was never any good at shooting open sights as a kid, so I needed a scope to be on the same level as the other young boppers. Something about bringing far away objects within arm’s reach really appeals to me."

Congress' end run around gun laws

"Recent decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed Americans' right to own and bear arms, but both of those rulings stopped well short of permitting anyone to carry a gun anytime and anywhere."

"Some members of Congress, however, are pushing that way. A House bill would effectively override state restrictions on concealed firearms and allow anyone with a permit from one state to carry in any other that permits concealed weapons."

"In other words, a concealed-carry permit holder could remain armed in any state but Illinois."

"The immediate aim is an end run on states that have enacted gun control legislation that doesn't meet the approval of the National Rifle Association." ...

"In 'Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America,' the constitutional law professor Adam Winkler tries to find a middle way to sober the debate between gun rights and gun control, with remarkable storytelling. 'Gun rights and gun control are not only compatible; they have lived together since the birth of America,' he writes."

"A bit less than a year ago, we discussed St. Louis gaining the distinction of being 'the most dangerous city' in the nation, in terms of violent crime. Three recent developments perhaps indicate, at least anecdotally, that the situation is not improving, and that to neglect personal security preparations for oneself and loved ones remains even more irresponsibly foolhardy here than in most other cities." ...

"Home Carry—carrying a gun at home—is patently ridiculous. Make that dangerous. When you Home Carry you carry a gun at home. At home! A gun! A gun that fires bullets! That could hurt someone! A gun could hurt someone! Sure the risk may be small that your home carry gun would shoot you or your loved ones. But it could happen. You could drop it. Someone could take it from you and use it against you. What about suicide? A kid could take your gun from your holster and BAM! shoot themselves. ... Clearly, Home Carry’s just not worth it. But try telling that to a gun rights advocate. You need more rhetorical firepower. So here are three good reasons not to home carry . . ." ...

... "Why would the White House, Senate-confirmed cabinet-level appointees, and other administration appointees conduct such a high-risk operation?"

"Perhaps the answer exists in the 'smoking guns' themselves." ...

"The point, of course, is that it isn’t remotely cost-effective for cartels to buy these weapons in the U.S."

"Yet the AK- and AR-pattern weapons that are most bitterly opposed by gun-grabbing groups and politicians in the United States are the most common weapons purchased by Operation Fast and Furious."

"This curious trend continues with Operation Fast and Furious’ proclivity to purchase the FN Five-seveN pistol." ...

However, upon the passage of this bad law, Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA, came to Columbus and pulled the event from the city, which would have drawn in excess of 65,000 people and likely would have poured upwards of $25 million dollars into the Ohio economy. ..." ...
