Gun Prohibitionists Go Ballistic over Court Ruling on Anti-Gun Measure

In the wake of last Friday’s ruling by Thurston County Superior Court Judge James Dixon that anti-gun Initiative 1639 petitions did not meet state legal requirements, the gun prohibition lobby and its supporters are “going ballistic,” declaring that the judge “sided with the gun lobby.”

But opponents of the 30-page, multi-faceted measure counter that the judge didn’t side with the gun lobby at all, he sided with state law and the state constitution. The fact that the Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association contested the measure should come as no surprise to anybody.

In the sleepy town of Bywy, Miss., a teen was faced with a life-or-death situation. The boy was home alone when an uncle, armed with a hatchet, threatened the teen’s life. The 16-year-old used a hunting rifle to protect himself, shooting his uncle in the chest and killing the man. “My son defended himself,” the teen’s mother said. “It could have been the other way around. It could have been my son [that] … I’m picking up and having to bury, but it wasn’t.” The youth is not being charged as the investigation revealed he fired in self-defense. The boy’s mother said this was not the first time the uncle had acted in a menacing manner toward her family—but it was the last.

The Springfield Armory 911 pistol is advertised as the tool for when you “have to be your own first responder.” It’s a clever, if obvious, double meaning, because the name invokes not only the national emergency 9-1-1 phone number, but also Springfield’s long history of making variations of the M1911 government model .45 ACP pistol. As names go, the 911 packs a lot of meaning into a short model number.

IN: NRA- Mayor Dennis, West Lafayette Wrong on Gun Control

The recently passed resolution promoting a failed gun control agenda in West Lafayette is yet another example of how gun control extremists are attempting to take away our freedoms. Mayor John Dennis calls the resolution common sense and suggests National Rifle Association members would support it. Nothing could be further from the truth. Mayor Dennis’ resolution supports measures that would criminalize the everyday activities of law-abiding gun owners in Indiana. Gun control measures would do nothing to make the people of Indiana any safer. Instead, they would only make it harder for law-abiding Hoosiers to protect and defend themselves.

Miranda Lambert has never been one to shy away from controversy, in her music or in real life. Case in point: the Texas native proudly carries a gun, even though she knows the practice is becoming controversial, and has no plans of laying her weapon down. "My dad was a police officer, so early on I was taught gun safety, what guns were for, how to use them and when not to touch them," Lambert tells TIME. "I’ve just grown up around them, so it’s my normal. I’m a girl, I travel a lot by myself, and I like to carry to protect myself. I know everybody has an opinion on it and it’s polarizing, but for me it’s just a way of life."

Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said “it doesn’t take a rocket scientist” to figure out why the shootings keep happening: the shooters don’t fear any significant consequences in court.

Shopify, a provider of e-commerce storefronts, has moved to ban certain firearms and parts on the company’s platform, including some semi-automatic weapons and 3D-printed guns.
The Canadian-based company revised its Acceptable Use Policy last week to ban a variety of firearms and gun-related products. Semi-automatic firearms with magazines capable of holding more than 10 bullets, attachments such as bump stocks that can make guns fire more rapidly, firearms without serial numbers and 3D-printed guns are among some of the items that are now considered “restricted.”

Introduced at the 2018 SHOT Show, the SIG P365 emerged as the Hot Item in the CCW niche. The goal was to create a pistol the size of a 7- or 8-shot super-slim pocket 9mm. Something in the S&W Shield, GLOCK 43 or Ruger LC9 category — but with the 11-shot capacity of, say, the GLOCK 26. SIG appears to have succeeded. The new design is generally credited to a team of brilliant SIG engineers, and to Pistol Product Manager Phil Strader.
