Hidden in Plain Sight

Responsible gun owners will agree that storing firearms safely in the home should be of the highest priority. Also ranking high on the priority list is being able to access your firearm quickly should a threat situation arise. Keeping your guns in a safe that is not easily accessible will not help you when seconds matter as you might not have the time to access your safe before the threat encounters you, and, if that happens, they aren’t going to wait. On one hand, we need to keep our firearms away from those who shouldn’t access them; on the other, we need to quickly and easily be able to retrieve our gun if need be. So how do we do this? Fortunately, there are ways to accomplish both and safely store your guns in plain sight.

It seems Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker thinks he is above the law—at least as far as guns are concerned. Even though district court judges have ordered that hundreds of law-abiding citizens should have their permits reinstated, Baker has stood firm on rejecting the order. The legal battle started seven months ago, when state officials asserted that the Firearm Licensing Review Board was granting permits to people who could have been federally barred from owning a gun.

More than 100 guns were collected in less than an hour on Saturday for a Chicago Police Department gun buy-back event, which aimed to get guns off the streets and curb gun violence. The event, which was CPD's second of the year, offered a $100 gift card in exchange for a firearm, a $10 gift card for BB guns, replicas and air pistols.

Days after 11 worshippers were gunned down by an anti-Semite wielding an AR-15 at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Mayor Bill Peduto urged the City Council to pass new laws regulating access to high-powered weapons. This week, Peduto followed up his plea with emails to dozens of mayors across the country urging them to do the same — even though it would probably result in lawsuits.
 

Pistol-Caliber Carbines for Home Defense: Setup & Strategy

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
Pistol-caliber carbines (PCC) have become increasingly popular in recent years. One reason may be their inclusion in major action-shooting competitions. Another, however, is the fact they can be quite effective home-defense tools, too. A compact carbine is not only easier to hit with than a handgun, but has significantly less recoil to recover from when repeat hits are needed. That inherent shooting advantage can be important if family members have to operate the gun in an emergency.

The Great State of New Jersey now finds itself in a situation somewhat like the legendary dog that chased a bus and managed to clamp its jaw on the bumper. Now what? It has passed a law mandating confiscation of high capacity gun magazines, and the law just passed a constitutional challenge at the federal appeals court level.

On the heels of a Secret Service investigation prompted by his tweet that challenged President Donald Trump to a fight, D-list celebrity Tom Arnold is now trying to grab headlines by making obviously false allegations about the National Rifle Association. Project 21 was locked and loaded with the truth to set the record straight. The star of The Stupids, The Jerk Theory and Dumbbells said in a recent tweet directed at NRA spokesman Dana Loesch that “I think there are 5 black NRA members.”
 

Gun School In Review: Handgun Combatives Adaptive Combat Pistol

I’ve known Dave Spaulding of Handgun Combatives for a few years now, and I had the opportunity to train with him back in 2016, during a launch event for Ruger’s American Compact pistol at FTW Ranch near Barksdale, Texas. Rather than inviting gun writers for a simple show and tell, Ruger wisely decided to bring in an expert in the field of armed personal protection to put those writers, and the new gun, through their paces. Spaulding, a career law enforcement officer, graduate of countless shooting schools and a nationally acclaimed firearms instructor for law enforcement personnel and armed citizens, certainly fit the bill.

The last train west chugged across the River Bug to the German-occupied side of the Russo-German border at 0200 on June 22, 1941. An hour later, as the short summer night lifted from central Ukraine, Hitler violated his nonaggression pact with Stalin and launched Operation Barbarossa. Three million Axis soldiers, 6,000 big guns, 2,000 Luftwaffe warplanes, and thousands of tanks flooded into the Ukraine.

Black bear hunting would expand to additional counties in southeastern Oklahoma under a proposal by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. Since 2009, black bear hunting has been allowed in four southeastern Oklahoma counties: Latimer, Le Flore, Pushmataha and McCurtain. Now, the Wildlife Department is wanting to open black bear hunting during archery and muzzleloader seasons in all areas south of Interstate 40 and east of U.S. 69.

Kyle Doheny and Michael Anderson are licensed gun owners who live in different states but have a few things in common. Both are black men who have worked in public safety or national defense. And both say that when they carry their guns, some people don’t respect their Second Amendment rights. The two were among the more than 100 people who responded when we asked black gun owners to tell us about their interactions with law enforcement, other authorities and the general public.

 

Gun Industry Restrictions Will Hurt Workers

Many people who seek to infringe on Second Amendment rights advocate the passage of “harsher gun laws” to allegedly benefit the common good. But does anyone actually understand what “harsher gun laws” mean for a state’s economy? Most advocates for arbitrary and unconstitutional restrictions on the freedoms of gun manufacturers claim to be targeting only certain businesses and customers. This logic is false. These misinformed reformers make the naïve assumption that the gun industry is a separate entity from the rest of the American economy. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Ocasio-Cortez who minored in economics tweeted , “$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T. That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.” The comparison is specious. In fact, the data suggests that the Pentagon hasn’t spent $21 trillion in the entire history of the United States.
 

Gun Prohibitionist Agenda Confirms ‘Slippery Slope’

For years, Second Amendment activists have been ridiculed and disdained for insisting that the gun prohibition agenda is aimed at eroding the fundamental right to keep and bear arms, but on Capitol Hill and out in “the other Washington,” there is ample evidence that the “slippery slope” argument has merit.

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that when the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives convenes next month, “We will pass common sense gun violence prevention legislation soon, and…it will be bipartisan,” which remains to be seen.
 

Fed. Court Upholds NJ Mag Limit, Shows Why Elections Matter

When a divided federal appeals court panel on Wednesday upheld New Jersey’s ban on magazines that hold more than ten cartridges, it underscored why elections matter.

Upholding the restriction were Judges Patty Schwartz and Joseph Greenaway, both nominated by former President Barack Obama. Writing a spirited dissent was Judge Stephanos Bibas, nominated by President Donald Trump. Presidents nominate judges to all the federal courts, and those nominees typically reflect the philosophy of the person in the Oval Office. While Trump has been a lightning rod for all manner of debate, he has been quietly filling federal court vacancies, which may be his lasting legacy.

Wayne County Commissioner Reggie Davis plans to push for a vote on a bullet tax resolution to curb gun violence, despite remarks from the chairman that the commission has "has no plans to take up this measure at this time."

Davis, who represents the sixth district and used to own several guns, wants the state to raise taxes on ammunition and mandate mental illness checks for buyers. The tax revenue would be used for gun safety and gun rights education.

He hopes the plan would be adopted by state and federal lawmakers.

Davis said Friday his proposal, which he first raised in September, has been largely misunderstood and would be a symbolic gesture as part of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Well, for starters, the gun folks are completely freaking out. “It’s all hands on deck, battle stations,” warned Alan Gottlieb, of Bellevue’s Second Amendment Foundation, about the possibility of a spate of gun-control measures sweeping the country.

U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., has the right mindset about violence that is perpetrated with guns. Just because someone falls victim to a criminal who uses a gun, that does not mean that guns are bad. What a refreshing approach—refreshing enough that anti-gunners just can’t seem to wrap their head around the concept.

For Republicans in Virginia, it’s time to face facts. We’re slowly becoming Maryland. Yes, we may have a Republican state legislature, but majorities in both houses hang by a thread. The Northern Virginia suburbs, where I live, are chock full of insufferable liberals who drive the direction of the whole state. The days of this state going to the GOP are over. The Obamaites infested the Old Dominion and never left. The next gubernatorial election is not until 2021, but we already have one anti-gun voice that says he’s in: state Attorney General Mark Herring.

Hunting in Maine: Getting ‘Unlost’ is a Skill Every Hunter Needs

Ever been lost? Most experienced woodsmen will deny it, though a few may offer, “I’ve been a mite turned around a time or two.” Hunters joke about it any time someone is a little late getting back to the road, camp or home, but it can be a very serious matter when someone gets legitimately lost. In addition to the immediate and direct threat to the hunter’s own personal safety, there’s the recovery effort. Depending on circumstances, it could require considerable time, money and resources, taking wardens away from the job they should be doing and putting rescuers at risk as well.

With duck hunting a veritable bummer so far during this 2018-19 season, a 24-year-old New Iberia outdoorsman is devoting more time to deer hunting on the Attakapas Wildlife Management Area. And Brad Romero Jr. is being rewarded for his time spent in the woods scouting, looking for signs and hunting deer. Romero got a great look and a true shot at a big buck with a .44 Mag Ruger deer rifle Nov. 25.
