FL: Gun control not the hot-button issue many expected – except in one race

The NRA, which for years influenced gun-owners’ votes with its grading system that rates candidates and incumbents by their commitment to their rights, introduced a new grade in Florida – Fx – for candidates endorsed by Everytown For Gun Safety, a gun control group bankrolled by former New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, a longtime antagonist of the Constitutional right to bear arms.

Recipients of the NRA’s new ‘Fx’ grade include Nelson, Gillum and incumbent U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch.
 

New for 2018: Black Aces Tactical Pro Series S Shockwave Semi

In recent years, several firearm manufacturers introduced several options in the all-new, non-NFA, shotshell-firing firearm market, but all of these options operated with a pump-action system that slowed the rate of fire and limited close-range utility on these guns. With the Black Aces Tactical Pro Series S Shockwave Semi, consumers now have an affordable, semi-automatic firearm allowing a more-rapid rate of fire combined with the short, overall length made possible by the Shockwave-style pistol grip.
 

Smith & Wesson Model 19 Classic .357 Magnum Revolver

The .357 Magnum has always been a round that inspires confidence and Smith & Wesson’s Model 19 is a name that does the same. The two have been hand-in-hand since the mid 1950’s and have very famous names associated with them, such as Elmer Keith and Bill Jordan. The Model 19 became the ‘peace officer’s dream’ gun and it saw a long and storied history of use. Today we are going to take a look at S&W’s re-release of the historical gun in the form of the new Model 19 Classic.
 

WA: I-1639 is a bad law that attacks our rights

If you value your civil rights, then please vote no on I-1639.

I-1639 is an attack on every person who values their constitutionally guaranteed rights – it taxes the right to own common firearms and illegally seizes rifles already owned by 18-to-20-year-old adults, who are responsible enough to serve in foreign wars and defend America with government issued weapons.

It is the worst kind of law aimed at our most law-abiding citizens, who have already undergone background checks. And it targets the victims of burglary with criminal charges if the thief uses a stolen firearm in a crime.
 

Why Have a .44 Special Handgun?

It is quite interesting to note that within the past couple of years several handgun manufacturers have brought out revolvers chambered for the .44 Special. Of course, these are revolvers, several models of single action types, but also some double action wheel guns as well. So, why the .44 Special and why should you bother having one?

The .44 Special for certain is an old design, outdated, and mostly relegated to the collector’s safes, right? Introduced in 1907 even before WWI, the .44 Special was originally a black powder load developed to replace the even older .44 Russian. Most probably recall the old .44 Special loaded in the famous Colt SAA or Single Action Army.
 

Anti-Gunners Want to Stop America’s Marketplace for Guns

Gun control activists also treat old but hip gun technology as if it is so new it can’t be trusted in the hands of American citizens. For perspective, realize that semi-automatic designs were so popular with civilians a century ago that a 1907 magazine ad for the Savage Model 1907 read: “Her property—her little ones—her own life—she knows are safely protected when she has a Savage Automatic in her home. She knows its ten sure shots are at her command—quick or slow, as she chooses—one to each trigger pull.”
 

With NRA lying low, gun control groups seize new ground in midterms

They have become shorthand for mass shootings, and for the predictable partisan gridlock that followed. But the midterm elections Tuesday could show a weakening of the gun lobby’s grip on US politics, with Democrats in key districts openly campaigning on the issue of gun control, some Republicans in retreat, and the NRA hamstrung financially.

Already vulnerable Republicans in swing districts have distanced themselves from the National Rifle Association, downplaying their top ratings that long were a political boon. And the NRA has drastically cut back political spending this cycle, leaving openings for newly energized gun control groups to run emotional ads attacking Republicans over gun violence.

There was a mass murder at a Pittsburgh Synagogue. If you read the posts on social media after that attack then you would think that guns are pure evil. Those writers seem not to know that guns save lives every day. Unfortunately, they are not alone.
 

Armed and Unarmed: A Difference in Mindset

Being armed or unarmed is, in many ways, a state of mind.

An armed person sees the world differently from a person who has decided to be unarmed. Nicolo Machiavelli, the famed author and political philosopher, states it well in The Prince:

Because there is nothing proportionate between the armed and the unarmed; and it is not reasonable that he who is armed should yield obedience willingly to him who is unarmed, or that the unarmed man should be secure among armed servants. Because, there being in the one disdain and in the other suspicion, it is not possible for them to work well together.

Missing the Marx: Gun Control’s Future is … Communism?

After every high profile crime committed with a firearm of any sort, there are always calls for gun control. But one particular proposal this week managed to distinguish itself amid the usual din, if only for its audacity and what it reveals about the mindset of people who wish to disarm their fellow Americans.

In a lengthy article in Washington Monthly, private equity investor William V. Glastris, Jr. pitched a plan under which the federal government would obtain the means of handgun production, ban handgun importation, and target the current private handgun stock with a massive, nationwide “buyback.” The plan’s ultimate goal would be for “the government to significantly lower the supply—and thereby raise the price—of handguns … .”

One of the five, Chance Johnson, 22, arrived at the apartment armed with a handgun.

The group entered the apartment and threatened the resident. From there, a physical altercation ensued.

The resident of the apartment cut one of the five subjects with a knife in what appeared to be an act of self-defense, according to Lt. John Trimble.
 

FL: Andrew Gillum Says Florida Is Not Safe for All While 'Stand Your Ground' Law Exists

Andrew Gillum called on Florida Gov. Rick Scott to declare a “state of emergency” after Markeis McGlockton was killed by gunfire this July. His killer, Michael Drejka, claimed he fired in self-defense after a parking lot dispute and initially dodged arrest under Florida’s “stand your ground” law. This incident brought the controversial law back into the spotlight, years after the killing of Trayvon Martin.
 

MA: Boston’s Restricted Licenses to Carry Guns Upheld

Restrictions Boston and Brookline, Mass., place on licenses to carry guns in public are constitutional, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit held Nov. 2.

The ruling follows the current trend in the circuit courts of upholding restrictions on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Under the cities’ regulations, a license to carry a gun may only be issued if the applicant has a good reason to fear injury beyond the general public need for self defense....
 

Videos Reveal Arizona’s Sinema and Florida’s Gillum Downplay Anti-gun Positions

In the last decade, gun control groups have tried to get more sophisticated with how they market their unpopular ideas. Some gun control advocates have gone so far as to partner with high-profile public relations firms to create messaging guides for their anti-gun allies. The overarching aim of these efforts is to obscure the gun control movement’s radical goals in order to appeal to a wider swath of the electorate.

A spate of hidden camera videos released by journalist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas shows that many anti-gun candidates are all too eager to carry out gun control organizations’ deceptive strategy.
