"Gun control advocates constantly call for legislators to 'close the gun show loophole.' They claim that felons (or their surrogates) go to gun shows to buy handguns and 'assault weapons' on the DL from private sellers. The antis want all private gun sales to go through a licensed gun dealer to ensure a criminal background check. Yes, well . . ." ...

"The gun control advocates over at the Violence Policy Center maintain media traction with their 'Concealed Carry Killers' feature. There are lots of ways I could deconstruct or contextualize the VPC’s anti-gun agit-prop. Suffice it to say, stats from Florida and elsewhere indicate that Americans with concealed carry licenses are far less likely to commit a violent crime than Americans who aren’t carrying a concealed weapon. D’uh. Licensees must pass a criminal background check AND their licenses are subject to revocation should they commit a felony. That said, there are concealed carry licensees who murder. Gun owners who fit the VPC’s Concealed Carry Killer profile. To wit this via seattletimes.com . . ." ...

"The Supreme Court's McDonald v. City of Chicago ruling striking down Chicago's handgun ban (and by extension, all handgun bans, at any level of government) falls, to put it mildly, far short of a full-throated acknowledgment that the right to keep and bear arms is one that shall not be infringed. Like the Heller decision before it, McDonald has, to date, shown little promise as an obstacle to most gun laws short of an outright ban." ...

"I want you to stop and think about that for a second. Two countries who heavily restrict guns still have enough gun crime that I can find a new story every single day for a year. If that doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about the failure of gun control, I don’t know what does." ...

"Gun safety, basic pistol, and personal protection classes used to be few and far between. There were a lot fewer opportunities and locations to take such classes even 10 years ago."

"Not anymore. The rise of the concealed carry movement (49 states and counting now) has led to a huge expansion of the availability of such classes. The fact that some state’s non-resident permits, such as Florida and Utah, are widely recognized has led to many more such classes being offered, by many more instructors." ...

"A concealed carry permit and a loaded gun in a holster doesn’t mean squat, unless you also add good split-second decision-making skills, proper training and a reliable gun. Packing heat is a big responsibility and must be taken very seriously. For the past few months I have been undertaking the task of learning about the legality of concealed carry in Wisconsin. Now, I am on the hunt to find the perfect gun."

"The Colt Defender .45 ACP and 9mm are both spectacular choices for concealed carry. Why? Because the body, grip, trigger and over-all feel are indistinguishable between both calibers. Of course, the kick set them apart, but not as much as I expected." ...

"With the long list of subcompact 9mm pistols from nearly every major maker, why consider a Kel Tec PF9? It’s neither a new-release—having been on the market for several years—nor from a big-name manufacturer. The two fast-draw answers: price and concealability. Add to that the fact that Kel Tec is an American company based in Cocoa, Florida, and this gun should still be on your radar." ...

"Well, first let me say this: I’ve heard some people (Knifemakers/Knife Companies) say the following, that there’s no difference between a 'regular' knife and a 'Tactical Knife.' I ask them this question: Is there a difference between a 'Combat Handgun' and a 'regular' hand gun? Damn right there is. ... It has a barrel, a handle and it shoots, just like every other gun. However, there are differences and to the educated or experienced, these subtleties can literally spell the difference between life and death. There is also a difference between a 'Tactical Knife' and a 'regular' knife. Let’s take a look." ...
