... "That was all part of a well-planned and funded effort to expand 'action group' efforts to the states reported in this column, initially in July of 2013, and warned of again in December of last year because no one else seemed to be noticing. It’s hard to organize against developing threats if the existence of where they are and how they’re structured is unknown."

"Significantly, the KTNV 'legitimate news media/real reporter' story mentioned none of this. I guess letting Nevadans know outside special interests are trying to buy an election isn't newsworthy and/or doesn't help advance the agenda."

"Now that Everytown has enjoyed a success, albeit an expensive one, the Washington feeding frenzy has produced a hunger for more. ..." ...

"Score this one as a victory for the judgment of the American people."

"For decades, anti-gun groups have been trying to scare Americans into getting rid of their guns, with the claim that you’re more likely to have a problem if you have guns in your home, than if you don’t. But whatever they’ve been doing all these years apparently hasn’t been working. Not only have Americans been acquiring guns at record levels, Gallup recently reported that 63 percent of Americans now believe that having guns at home makes them safer, nearly double the percentage reporting the same belief 14 years ago." ...

"Even as the Buffalo Police Department attempts to further explain its position on a new policy to seek out guns from the families of those recently deceased, gun rights advocates are blasting the agency."

"Under fire is the new directive by Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda ordering his officers to visit the homes of pistol permit holders who have recently departed to inquire about the former's handgun. According to the New York State Police, the administrator of a deceased’s estate has 15 days to lawfully dispose of a gun held on a pistol permit. ..."

"An on-line story at the Washington Post yesterday talks about new research that apparently pokes holes in the strongly-held opinion in the firearms community that more guns result in less crime, and it is sure to ignite some arguments."

"This research suggests just the opposite, the Post article, by Christopher Ingraham, suggests. Referring to the research by John Donohue, a Stanford law professor, Ingraham writes, 'The evidence suggests that right-to-carry laws are associated with an 8 percent increase in the incidence of aggravated assault, according to Donohue. He says this number is likely a floor, and that some statistical methods show an increase of 33 percent ... after the passage of right-to-carry laws.'" ...

"The gun control laws in the U.S. are unconstitutional and, instead of protecting us like they were made to do, are very hazardous. Gun control laws make it very difficult to be able to protect oneself in emergencies. This is very ironic considering gun control laws are made to protect us citizens. So for all the people who consider gun control laws as a safety necessity, have you ever thought about how you would be able to defend yourself when the police aren’t around and you have nothing to protect yourself with? Also, these gun control laws of ours are supposed to be righteous but instead are unconstitutional and violate our rights. ..." ...

"The first four articles in this series dealt with issues of philosophy and morality, even theology. It is now time to delve into issues far less lofty and divine, issues often fought in the muddy and fetid fever swamps of Washington D.C., which was actually built on swampy ground. As we have already established that the right to self-defense is a fundamental, unalienable right, a right not granted by government and therefore, a right which may not be infringed or taken away by government, it may seem odd to have to deal with politics in regard to that right, but such is the nature of man." ...

"It’s no secret that I didn’t like the Tac-Con 3MR trigger. It isn’t necessarily that it’s a bad egg — the thing functions as advertised — it just seems overpriced for what you get. They were asking $500 for a trigger that doesn’t do anything all that new, and came with no training materials or instructions on how to use it. Their PR guy’s response to the article wasn’t all that pleasant, but after a few conversations with the Tac-Con guys themselves, they invited me out to try out their latest creation. Tyler liked it.

Colt Competition has done some pretty cool stuff recently, but Colt’s Manufacturing Co. hasn’t really come out with anything “new” in quite a while. The lone exception is their line of rifles based on the Colt 901, which is a cool design concept that didn’t seem to be well executed at all.

They don’t simply claim to be 'match grade' and then leave you gessing as to what that means, they print their guarantee right on the box: 1/2 MoA groups from every box of ammunition. It’s a bold claim, and they sent me home with a couple boxes of ammunition confident that the product will speak for itself. I put it through the standard ammunition testing that we do here, and the results are pretty cool." ...

"And while the Huffington Post claims No Control offers a balanced look at the pro-Second Amendment versus gun control debate--'giving voice to advocates from both sides'--the documentary's trailer makes clear that 'gun violence is a public health issue' and this, of course, sets up guns and gun ownership as issues to be dealt with in the same way as swine flu, bird flu, chicken pox, or Ebola. ..." ...

"On my retirement from 20 years of driving trucks for Uncle Sam I acquired a CDL and went into the civilian truck transportation industry. If ever an industry and class of citizens had their Second Amendment rights discriminated against, it is professional interstate truck drivers. Truckers travel the nation and constantly spend the night in their trucks in sketchy industrial areas and among people who see them as secluded vagabonds and easy targets . . ."

"Many truckers want to be able to carry for self-defense, but the nature of their business makes it a legal minefield. ... They may have a carry permit in one state, but no state has 48-state reciprocity. We also know how widely one state’s laws can vary from another’s." ...

"Governor-elect Greg Abbott has made no secret of his support of gun rights in Texas. In December 2013, Abbott created a 'We the People' petition, proposing legislation that would allow Concealed Handgun Licensing (CHL) holders to, at a minimum, openly carry holstered weapons, as well as allow concealed weapons on college campuses. He also made the protection and expansion of gun rights a cornerstone of his gubernatorial campaign ... Though a controversial topic, to Abbott, the issue of gun rights was settled in 1791 with the penning of the Bill of Rights. But that is an oversimplification if I’ve ever heard one, and not coincidentally, the crux of the battle for gun ownership in America." ...

"Ohio is the only state where a person claiming self defense is considered guilty until they’re proven innocent. Unlike the other 49, Ohio requires that a person who shoots an attacker in self defense must prove that they’ve acted reasonably.

"Of the 19, 901 background checks run by the Oregon State Police in October, 196 sales were 'denied.' Wow, that’s 196 bad guys off the street. Maybe not."
