Federal Judge Blocks California’s ‘Onerous and Convoluted’ Ammunition Restrictions

A federal judge on Thursday blocked a California law requiring background checks for people buying ammunition, issuing a sharply worded rebuke of “onerous and convoluted” regulations that violate the constitutional right to bear arms.

Now May Not be the Best Time to Come Out

Although this may not be the best time to share this potentially painful reality, being that everyone is already on edge being forcibly cooped up because of the virus, sometime you just have to do what you have to do.

But still – fair warning if you finally summon the courage to tell your leftist family that you’ve gone over to the conservative dark side and worse, are a supporter of the SECOND AMENDMENT.

Our buddies at Black Rifle Coffee let us know what we may likely be in for as they play out the following “real life” scenario: read more

Is a Good Guy with a Gun Really a Good Guy?

A good guy (or girl) with a gun will stop a bad guy with a gun. It happens quite a lot, but isn’t often reported on.

However, many otherwise well meaning liberals simply don’t agree with this premise. Mostly because of the echo-chambers they live in. No one they know owns guns and they’ve been taught that, without exception, guns are bad, and only bad come from owning a gun.

But Will Witt was brave enough to venture out into the city of Pasadena, California to speak to liberals about the “good guy with a gun” statement.

It all begins rather predictably, as the interviewers all agree that guns have no place in society – that there are no good guys with guns.

But when presented with a scenario or two, most of the liberals, having never heard a reasoned argument from the right, began to rethink their positions.

Seeing them begin to question their own beliefs about guns is fascinating and shows that speaking with liberals one on one, without the “mob” distraction, can actually be quite constructive.

A Win for the Good Guys in Virginia

There was a vote to ban “assault” weapons, and other gun-related items in the blue commonwealth of Virginia. And the news is nothing short of miraculous.

With all the anti-gun rhetoric coming out of Virginia lately, one would believe that the commonwealth who brought us George Washington, James Madison and George Mason had gone completely off the constitutional rails.

But instead of passing a sweeping weapons ban, cooler heads prevailed and tabled the vote until 2021. It wasn’t a vote in favor of the Second Amendment entirely, but it is progress.

I ask that at the end of the article, you watch the video. It’s quite instructive. And it ends well!!

Three Gun Owners Set Nanny Bloomberg Straight

NRA fires back at Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad with powerful ad of its own

The National Rifle Association on Sunday issued a fierce response to Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad that aired during the Super Bowl.

The misleading ad claimed that 2,900 children die from gun violence every year. However, as Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski noted, almost half of those “children” are actually adults ages 18 and 19. In fact, the ad merely cites misleading data from Bloomberg’s gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety. read more

15 Awesome Things I Saw At The Massive U.S. Gun Show Only Insiders Can Attend

Two days surrounded by guns, ammunition, Navy SEALs, military dogs, tactical gear, camouflage, and American flags restored my faith in America.

Organized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), SHOT Show brings together the world’s best in shooting sports, law enforcement, hunting, and armed forces to share their products and businesses, but more importantly, to shoot the globe’s latest and greatest firearms in the Nevada desert. read more

Not All Libs are Against the Second Amendment

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be anything remaining that the right and left could agree on – along comes a Second Amendment rally, that is evidently so important, it caused otherwise unhinged leftists to join constitution conservatives in the fight to preserve Americans’ gun rights.

Talk about some strange bed fellows.

But I guess there still remains something that is bigger than all of us – the United States Constitution.

I was going to say God, but considering who these groups are – I didn’t want to get too carried away.

Weapon Wednesday: Effective Underwater Bullets

The narrow corridor of air the CAV-X bullets create for themselves through supercavitation is the secret to how they go through water so easily

Regular bullets decelerate so quickly in water that they only make it a few feet, which is why diving into a conveniently located pool or waterway when under fire from assassins can be such a good idea.
