"Backers of Washington state’s Initiative 591, the grassroots effort to protect gun owners’ rights, are warming up to a recently-uncovered 48-year-old rock tune by Grand Funk Railroad and publicized today in The Gun Mag.com (TGM) as 'the most pro-Second Amendment song ever.'"

"The song’s title is 'Don’t Let Them Take Your Gun.' According to the article appearing today in the on-line version of TGM, written by Vincent DeNiro, editor-in-chief of Prepper and Shooter Magazine, it was produced by rock legend Frank Zappa and appeared on Grand Funk’s 'Good Singin', Good Playin' album in 1976. DiNiro sent the story via e-mail to Bellevue gun rights guru Alan Gottlieb." ...

"TrackingPoint is best known for their precision rifles, which use a scope and trigger system that turns long range shooting into a point-and-click video game. They said when they started making the guns that the goal was to have a semi-automatic version as well, and it looks like that time has arrived. TP has just released a video showing off the features of their brand new AR-15 and AR-10 rifle platforms, chambered in 5.56 NATO, 7.62 NATO, and 300 BLK, and it looks pretty good." ...

"While I was down in Phoenix for the 3MR event, I learned that the trigger system had a coating on it called NP3. Also on hand for the media event was someone from ROBAR that was able to talk about the NP3 coating, and what it does. NP3 is a coating that is Electroless Nickle plating with PTFE (Teflon) in it. It is being used on firearm parts that are prone to wear, and has its own lubricity. After seeing triggers with several thousand round over them and they were barely even broken in, I wanted to know more about NP3." ...

"Today’s early-morning crash of the 911 system across Washington and parts of Oregon, which was largely restored between 7 and 8 a.m., might underscore what the firearms community has long maintained is the individual household’s need for an emergency personal backup plan that includes a defensive firearm."

"As service was restored, the Seattle Times and other news organs around the state began down-playing the situation. However, for someone with an immediate, life-threatening emergency, not being able to summon help translates to 'You’re on your own.' In cases like that, having a firearm for self-defense is apparently being given greater consideration by a growing number of Washington citizens." ...

The Bundy family and its supporters are busy removing signs from the government lands that proclaim that the area is temporarily closed by order of the federal government. ... Meanwhile and at the same time, Bundy Ranch supporters had a major scuffle with the BLM over a dump truck exiting federal lands. Turns out the feds are removing fencing and other improvements the family made to government owned property. So the feds are doing the escalation thing, too. Both sides are armed.

"In 2014, the new Illinois Concealed Carry Law went into effect allowing individuals who possess a valid Concealed Carry License issued by the Illinois State Police to carry a concealed handgun in non-prohibited locations."

"Locations that are not prohibited by the new law can become prohibited if a designated sign is posted conspicuously at the entrance to a location by a private property owner or by a person controlling the property, as long as the building or property is not a private residence." ...

Submitter's Note: Unfortunately such a sign won't keep guys like Anthony Abbate from entering.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
