Spike Lee Accuses Gold Star Family Of Lying About NFL Anthem Protests On Live TV

As a Gold Star Family Member I want to say Spike Lee is full of shit and these Gold Star Parents are correct.

I know these morons are disrespecting our flag and our military.

I say I will boycott the NFL for allowing these morons to disrespect our flag and our veterans living and dead.

Last night two Gold Star parents asked director and activist Spike Lee a question during a CNN town hall regarding kneeling during the national anthem. Lee was a panelist along with Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, former U.S. Army Green Beret Nate Boyer, and former New York Jet Michel Faulkner. Lee is a supporter of NFL players who choose to dishonor the flag.

The Gold Star family were the parents of Staff Sgt. Louis Bonacasa. They told Lee how they recently attended a ceremony for other Gold Star parents and were sickened at…

Why Anti-Gun Echo Chambers Are Good News For The Second Amendment

Give Me Liberty

H/T Bearing Arms.

Apparently, an anti-gun Facebook page has declared any and all pro-Second Amendment supporters persona non grata. They don’t want anyone who might disagree with them anywhere near their page, according to a post at America’s First Freedom.

The anti-gun Facebook page “Gun Control Now” has this at its mantra: “Gun nuts will be banned. This page will be safe for the rational and the sane, a no harassment zone.”

So it’s a “safe space” for people to have one-sided groupthink. Like the “safe spaces” that have been popping up on college campuses to protect the often one-sided views and weak sensibilities of snowflakes, Gun Control Now opted to censor opposing views.

It’s amusing to mock this trend, but the problem is that it isn’t just some curious exception.

This shun-all-the-opposing-views approach from the Left is also why some on the progressive left are shouting down…

Georgia Professors File Lawsuit Over Campus Carry

H/T Bearing Arms.

I bet these six special snowflake professors would be the first to buy a gun if their family or themselves were victims of a assault or robbery.

I hope these special snowflakes get their asses handed to them in court.

A handful of professors in the University System of Georgia are a bit miffed. It seems that they believe an individual’s right to keep and bear arms should end at the campus borders. They believe it so much that they’ve filed a lawsuit to block Georgia’s campus carry law.

Six Georgia professors filed suit in state court Monday to stop a law that allows licensed concealed carriers to bring guns onto campus.

The complaint, brought against Governor Nathan Deal and Attorney General Chris Carr, argues that the state’s guns-on-campus law infringes on the University System of Georgia’s authority over its 30 schools.

One Year Of Campus Carry On Texas Campuses, And How Many Problems?

Give Me Liberty

H/T Bearing Arms.

The streets of the campuses in Texas are not running red with blood as the liberals swore would happen.

Anti-gun leftists have screamed and moaned about the idea of law-abiding concealed carry license holders being able to take their lawfully owned firearms onto college campuses. They routinely act like anyone with a gun is going to snap at any moment.

Of course, this isn’t new. After every new repeal of some anti-gun regulation, we hear the old “the streets will run red with blood” arguments, and yet they never seem to pan out that way, do they?

But campus carry is different, they say. These are kids, so there are all kinds of new problems that will make the streets run red with blood.

Well, we’re in luck. Texas has now had campus carry for a year, and how many problems have they had? None.

No one is above the rules

tacticalprofessor

One of the students involved in this went up and took the blank gun … from the instructor’s [emphasis mine] waistband and placed that against the instructor’s back and fired

Not the student’s fault. No one is supposed to have weapons capable of causing injury at such an event.
Either the school’s training protocols are incorrect or the instructor didn’t follow them. Either way, this incident is on the cadre not the student. This is a Serious Mistake on the trainers’ side. There are reasons we have rules about how to conduct Force on Force. This is an example of why. Fortunately, it appears the injury wasn’t serious but the incident is an example of how Negative Outcomes occur.
Guns are deadly weapons. We can never relax our vigilance around them. Thinking that anyone is exempt from the rules is “cruisin’ for a bruisin’.

Handheld Firearms – Hundreds of Years of Transformation and Improvement: Modern Warfare Today

Jim Campbell's

There is more history about the development of personal guns and weapons of war thanone can possibly imagine.

Fortunately, modern warfare has learned a few lessons, men are no longer thrust into battle as mere cannon fodder.

Today’s U.S. Military, when needed on the ground, are used in a manner that will give the biggest probability of returning home alive and well.

Today’s killing comes from submarines, ships on the ocean, the airand strategic use of less troops on the ground.

Ironically this was all accomplished without gun free zone signs and Diane Feinstein and her anti-Second Amendment ilk.

Permitless Carry Picking Up Steam In This State

Bravo to the state of Wisconsin for moving closer into the light of freedom for gun owners.

I hope my home state of Indiana makes the seam move shortly.

Permitless carry, also called constitutional carry, is the goal for many states right now. The idea of having to jump through hoops in order to exercise your right to keep and bear arms for personal protection is ridiculous, and constitutional carry helps remove that burden from law-abiding gun owners’ lives.

Now, one state is inching a bit closer to this goal.

After gaining traction in several states last legislative session, permitless carry is now picking up steam in Wisconsin.

Earlier this week, a Senate committee voted along party lines to pass SB 169, which removes the licensing requirement for those who want to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense. The National Rifle Association is strongly supporting the…

A YDR analysis of 38 gun homicides from 2013 through 2016 found that in at least 21 cases, one or more of the alleged or convicted assailants was not allowed to possess a gun under federal or state law.

In three of those cases, a man killed a woman and himself.

Handguns have gone through many changes over the centuries. From simple gunpowder weapons to sophisticated modern firepower, they have repeatedly been transformed and improved.

Early Guns

First created in China around the 10th century, gunpowder reached Europe in the 13th century. In the 14th century, Europeans produced the first guns. Probably starting in Italy and Germany, the first hand-held weapons were primitive devices. For two centuries, the principal use of gunpowder was in artillery.

Then came the period which is known as the military revolution. During the 16th and 17th centuries, the relationship between nations, citizens, and military power changed. Gun technology had…

Is the answer to the question, “Does Rough Rider make tactical knives?”

Yes, it is a linerlock, assisted opening knife with black aluminum handles and a partly black coated 440stainless steel clip point style blade with steel liners. You will need to resharpen more frequently with this steel, but if you can sharpen it should be no problem. The knife comes in a plain edge style, and is tip down only for carry. The pocket clip is not coated and does allow the knife to ride low in the pocket. I would have preferred a black pocket clip, but it is stainless steel. Also would have preferred a slightly smaller pocket clip, but those are small problems for what is just a fun knife.


When closed the blade centering on this knife is perfect as is the lockup. Overall the appearance of this knife is quite striking. There is even…

International Firearm Ownership and Homicide Rates

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- The data for the graphic above was taken from the Guardian, a leftwing publication in England. Firearm ownership rates are from the Small Arms Survey in 2007, so it is a bit dated. The per capita ownership in the United States has gone up considerably since then.

It is now about 120 firearms per 100 people. U.S. citizens purchased 94 million firearms during the Obama presidency. They have likely purchased another 6 million in the first 8 months of 2017.

The firearms homicide rate fell from 4.19 in 2007 to 3.45 in 2014, but bumped up to 4.13 in 2015. (numbers from the CDC)

The chart shows that firearms ownership is not related to firearm homicides. That is somewhat misleading. The trick is to only look at firearm homicides. What matters is not firearm homicides, but total…

Like the other Ruger American rifles it features a polymer stock and free floated barrel.

I do not have any doubt Governor Moonbeam Brown will sign this anti gun bill. 

Yet another anti-gun bill has landed on California Governor Jerry Brown’s desk this month. This time, lawmakers are hoping to reinforce the firearms ban on elementary and secondary school campuses.

In 1995, the state passed the Gun-Free School Zone Act, which prohibits any person from knowingly bringing a firearm into a public school zone. In 2015, the act was amended so that superintendents could grant CCW permit holders permission to carry on school grounds if they had reason to believe their life was in danger. The goal was to ensure victims of domestic abuse always had a way to protect themselves.

However, if Gov. Brown approves the new measure, known as AB 424, school administrators will no longer be able to grant exemptions and the blanket ban on firearms will…

“Adaptable to several weapon platforms, including 40 mm grenade launchers, 30 mm guns, 120 mm tank ammunition and M-72 rockets, this makes the technology ideal for dealing with a number of different threats, including drones.”

Since the 300 and 5.56 rounds are so closely related and use so many of the same components it is possible that a round will enter into the chamber far enough that it is able to be fired resulting in some rather unpleasant results for the AR and, potentially, for the shooter.

The safest way to ensure this doesn’t happen is to only bring one or the other to the range on any given day. I plan on following this rule as much as possible but even with this approach there is still some chance of a mismatch. As a secondary measure many companies make and sell bands and other markers for magazines that help flag possible mistakes. These are a bit pricey ($10 a pop) and…

City in Maryland passes bill that will allow illegal immigrants to vote

Give Me Liberty

H/T Liberty UnYielding.

DemocRats need the voters as they have alienated most of their voter base. 

The city of College Park, Md. has approved a measure that will allow illegal immigrants to vote in local elections. By a 4-3 vote, and after roughly four hours of a sometimes contentious debate, non-citizens were granted a right that has historically been reserved for legal immigrants and native-born Americans.

Fox 5 reports that College Park “joins six other towns in allowing legal permanent residents and undocumented immigrants to vote in municipal elections.”

While you were sleeping, College Park Officials voted to allow non-citizens to vote. http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Discussions-Continue-on-College-Park-Voting-Measure_Washington-DC-444098453.html

Are You Resident, Or Are You Community?

gunservant.com

By Harold F. Callahan

Perhaps that title should read “are you ‘a’ resident, etc. But I chose it like it is. The national evolution to active neighbourhood watches, citizen patrols, Community Police Forum cooperation and general civilian mobilisation in the last five to ten years has been to the large part very encouraging. For many, many years the last word in “neighbourhood watch” was some retired dude with a chrome .38 in a Toyota Corolla and some faded yellow and black signs on random street corners mostly concealed with bougainvillea. In the early 80’s Citizen Band radio had a short spurt of community networking where good buddies in Cortinas with K-40 aerials spotted road blocks, cars broken down, damsels in distress, and one incident I remember reading in CB magazine, a guy was talked through open heart surgery with an Okapi and half a pack of wet-wipes. Ok, it was…

Sig Sauer Issues Recall Notice On Limited Number Of Rifles

It’s shaping up to be a rough quarter for Sig Sauer. First, there was the controversy over the P320 firing if dropped in a certain manner, and now it seems the venerable firearm manufacturer is having some issues with some of their rifles.

From a company press release:

Newington, NH (September 15th, 2017) – SIG SAUER, Inc. has determined that a limited number of rifles in the SIG716 DMR®, SIG516® Carbon Fiber and SIGM400® Predator models were built with a two-stage SIG SAUER trigger that may have an improperly heat-treated hammer. Over time this could result in a trigger malfunction creating a significant safety hazard. SIG SAUER is issuing a mandatory recall to replace the hammer and trigger assembly in these specific rifles. This recall does not affect any military or law enforcement rifles or any…

Heckler & Koch make some fine quality firearms. Few people disagree with that statement. However, many of us in the gun community have wondered if they actually give a flying flip about civilian gun owners. A buddy of mine once referred to them as the most anti-gun owner gun company in the world.

I don’t know that I’d go that far, but I will say that for a company that’s wanting a bigger chunk of U.S. market share, the latest move by the company might not be the way to go.

300 gr Sports Master Bullet in My 45 Colt

My testing continues with my Henry carbine in 45 Colt and I have found out that it likes the Sierra Bullets #8830 300gr Sports Master JSP. I was hoping to catch one and show what kind of expansion it gives and it took some doing but I finally did.

The bullet to the left weighs 288.84 grains and the fragments weigh in at 11.04 grains for a total of 299.88 grains from a 300gr start. This was made with an impact velocity of 1,604fps and it went through 54 inches of water just to bounce off of the large blue barrel I had placed behind everything, just in case (and thank goodness I did). With this kind of performance, it should break bones easily and still keep going. It could easily be put to other applications where maximum penetration is required…

CCW Weekend: Short-Barrel Pistol Grip Shotguns – Thanks, But…

I learned how to shoot a 12 gauge like a pistol, not really bad but nothing spectacular. Street sweeper pistol grip, I do not care for. If a pistol grip is to be used, I would suggest maximizing the entire weapon, by having a semi-automatic shotgun, and preferably a sawed off or barely legal barrel length (as measured from a closed breech with a dowel). What you are left with, is essentially a Colt Walker in semi-auto .70 caliber at 12 gauge.

H/T The  Daily Caller.

Personally I would not want to own or shoot one of these news shotguns.

Mossberg-590-shockwave

A few manufacturers have found exploitable loopholes in the National Firearms Act of 1968 and – to the delight of some – are “thumbing their noses” at the authorities and producing short-barrel pistol grip shotguns. They’re marketed for the home defense set, and a coterie of tactical accessories is sure to follow.

A number of people are certainly excited about the Mossberg Shockwave and the Remington Marine Magnum, hailing them as self-defense implements par excellence.

The goal, of course, is to get as close as possible to offering people a sawed-off shotgun while still complying with regulations governing such things; how such guns comply with said regulations is by meeting the overall length requirement (26 inches) and fitting a pistol grip at the factory.

Anti Gun Lawyers…

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

The ABA, whose primary purpose is to set academic standards for law schools and propose codes of ethics for lawyers, has never been too fond of the Second Amendment. As early as 1965, the ABA favored restrictive gun control. What is surprising about this resolution, though, is the lack of attention paid to the due process rights of gun owners. In its resolution, the ABA explicitly endorses issuing GVROs ex parte, meaning the constitutional rights of the accused could be stripped without the opportunity to defend himself in court.

Spineless RINO Ryan Makes Statement on Future of 2nd Amendment

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

Rep. Paul Ryan’s tenure as House speaker has been enough to make conservatives almost miss John Boehner. Until now, however, the key word in that formulation has been “almost.” Now, Speaker Ryan’s abdication of a major Second Amendment initiative proposed at the beginning of the 115th Congress could have many conservatives reaching for their editor’s pens and scratching out that one word.

In an interview with Armed American Radio last Thursday, Kentucky GOP Rep. Thomas Massie said the speaker is blocking a national concealed carry reciprocity bill that was introduced back in January.

“Social Justice Collective” Calls for Four-Year Universities to Ban Veterans, Cites NRA Ties

I am shocked and saddened by the way our veterans are being disrespected.

It’s admittedly getting more and more difficult to separate fact from fiction these days, especially when it comes to the increasingly bizarre world of anti-gun social justice crusaders. But it is apparently true that a publication recently appeared on the campus of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) arguing that “we must ban veterans from four-year universities.” Among the reasons the author of the essay cites is that “veterans usually are associated with extremist right-wing groups such as the tea party and the NRA.”

The publication also faults veterans for “openly mock[ing] the ideas of diversity and safe spaces for vulnerable members of society,” frightening fellow students with their “overwhelming presence,” and making “insensitive jokes.”  Nevertheless, it denies any intention to deprive veterans of an education, explaining that they “should be allowed…

For nearly 10 hours over two meetings, a variety of studies, statistics, reports and anecdotes were presented to lawmakers in an effort to persuade them of the benefits of permitless carry or the perils of removing state oversight of who can have a loaded weapon on the streets. The first meeting was held Aug. 22 and the second Thursday.

In the end, seemingly no research result remained uncontested or undisputed as pro- and anti-gun groups continuously directed state representatives and senators to competing data that reinforced their already existing policy preferences.

They are light weight, and inexpensive so each person in your group can have and carry at least two. I see these as reserve items.

There are a lot of people claiming that price gouging should be criminal. What they fail to take into consideration is that price gouging is the only way to really allocate resources. The critics will claim that this is people taking advantage of others. However, gasoline prices were fixed and what happened was that everyone ran out and filled their cars just to have it and really did not use it. Those who wanted to leave couldn’t because there was no gasoline. I myself could not buy gasoline. I had a quarter tank and it was enough to get me to the airport only. So many others could not leave and many who tried ran out of gas and were stranded.

Incidents like this are disconcerting to those who work in courthouses, to be sure, but it’s probably most disconcerting to those who are the most likely targets of violence: The judges themselves.

It seems that Judge Bruzzese wasn’t an anomaly in one other way. More and more judges are apparently arming themselves.

https://i0.wp.com/media.breitbart.com/media/2016/01/concealed-carry-Flickr-640x480.jpg?zoom=2When Florida Governor Rick Scott signed the law in 2015, Unified Sportsmen of Florida’s Marion Hammercommented, “This bill is a no-brainer, particularly in Florida with our hurricane exposure. When you’re ordered to evacuate — to take your kids, your dog and valuables and flee — the last thing you should leave behind is your gun.”

Gov. Scott can also extend the timeline to allow evacuees to carry concealed for a greater amount of time.

“With Hurricane Irma now a category 5 storm, we must do all we can to prepare our families and communities for any potential impact from this major weather event,” Scott said…

Americans for Responsible Solutions Claims NFA Isn’t Burdensome

Give Me Liberty

H/T The NRA/ILA.

Americans for Responsible Solutions is a bunch of irresponsible morons.

Earlier this week, gun control group Americans for Responsible Solutions continued their confused campaign against the Hearing Protection Act (S. 59 and H.R. 367) with a new line of attack. This vital legislation would remove firearm suppressors from regulation under the National Firearms Act, which requires suppressor purchasers to pay a $200 tax stamp and for the devices to be registered in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record. According to the group’s latest perverse logic, the rapid growth of the suppressor industry in recent years somehow proves that the current regulatory scheme is not burdensome and that legislation to improve access to these important safety devices is unnecessary.

In an August 30 press release titled, “Silencer Regulation Soars in 2016, Despite Gun Lobby Claim that Regulations are Burdensome,” ARS cited data from the 2017…

Taco Bell Employees Fatally Shoot Armed Robber

― ஜ ۩ Whiskey Tango Texas ۩ ஜ ―

Police say three employees of a Cleveland Taco Bell opened fire on two armed robbers, killing one.

Police have said two masked robbers entered the restaurant early Wednesday and ordered three employees to lie on the floor. Police say three other employees pulled out handguns and opened fire, shooting one of the suspects six times. The other suspect ran off.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Medical Examiner’s Office on Thursday said the man killed was 24-year-old De’Carlo Jackson.

Investigators say Jackson was found with a loaded gun in his hand. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

No one has been arrested. The employees who opened fire are said to be two 19-year-old men and a 23-year-old man.

A Taco Bell spokeswoman told Cleveland.com the company is “shocked” by the shooting and is offering counseling to employees.

There is No Such Thing as a ‘Knife Fight’ – Some Common Sense Self-Defence

gunservant.com

By Bryan Mennie

Just like all of you, I get irritated by certain things. Most of the times I am pretty proud of myself, and I ignore it or leave the situation without saying a word. On occasion I allow my impulsive nature to get the better of me, and I just cannot help being sarcastic or, if the situation is one where I sense the person is genuinely seeking knowledge, providing my opinion. I always ask permission before I do that, though.

U.S. Virgin Islands Authorizes to Seize All Guns Due to Hurricane

Centinel2012

The U.S. Virgin Islands Governor Kenneth Mapp  of the Virgin Islands has just issued an order allowing the National Guard and the local government to seize any privately owned guns, ammunition and private property necessary to protect the island due to Hurricane Irma. Of course, there is no definition of what may constitute property that is necessary to “protect” the island.

The National Guard is not considered to be military by definition so there is no argument that he is authorizing a military takeover. I am assuming that is because the National Guard are regarded as a state agency, but they get 99% of their annual budget from the Federal Government and the patches on their uniforms say U. S. Army, not National Guard. This gives many a reason not to register their guns and ammunition with your local government.

Southern Poverty Law Center Finally Responded to Antifa — You Won’t Believe What They’re Not Calling It

Give Me Liberty

H/T Independent Journal Review.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a hate group so anything they say should always be discounted.

Over the past few years, more and more major events have been disrupted by antifa, the self-described “anti-fascist” far-left/radical-left protest group with a propensity for violence.

And as the group’s violent tactics become harder and harder to ignore, more and more public figures on the left have been asked to condemn antifa and its actions.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a self-proclaimed “anti-hate” watchdog group that has endeavored to save America from the “hateful” pro-family rhetoric of businesses such as Chick-fil-A, finally delivered the verdict on antifa:

CZ versus Glock – Why the Internet Exists

If you haven’t sat glued to your screen watching this debate play out over social media before then you clearly don’t spend much time on firearm groups – and that’s ok. You see the same debate has raged over the braai, in the living room or even on the golf course. Yes it is that contentious and if you haven’t been party or an observer to it – don’t worry, it’s sure to come sooner or later.

Bog River Flow to Oswagatchie Traverse – Adirondack Canoe/Hammock Camp

Nature Into Action

Got my friend Ron to join me on a canoe camping trip in the Adirondacks. This time we tackled the Oswagatchie Traverse.

We dropped my keys off 9am with Anne at Raquette River Outfitters and signed paperwork for them to shuttle the vehicle from Low’s Lower Dam to Inlet.

After admiring the beautiful shop of gear n goodies and fleet of boats we drove the 20 minutes past the free sites along the south shore of Horseshoe Lake and on to Lows Lower Dam to begin the paddle on Bog River Flow.

  

The flow meanders for 3 beautiful miles or an hour or so through curves where one must watch the current to stay out of the slow go zone of aquatic vegetation.

 

It works its way to Hitchens Pond where a juvenile bald eagle squawked at us as if to proclaim ownership over the pond. At the…

Lethal versus Less-Lethal – Which is Appropriate?

gunservant.com

By Harold F. Callahan

Minimum Force. If any two words have caused more headaches in my life those come above “Election Duties”, “Monday morning” and even “double rum”. I have always had a little chuckle when, in the middle of being lectured about law by the most irritating person in the bar, he starts on about when HE was in the army they still used the all magical and powerful R-1. But his was actually an Eff-Enn, which made him somewhat more superior than all the other okes who didn’t get to go to the border. Like it was some sort of national secret, he says the reason THEY had THEIR Arr-wunns taken away and issued with “those” Arr-foors was because the Arr-foor was like less powerful and therefore commensurate with Minimum Force. Sorry, if you heard me grumble “bullshit” you’ll have to blame it on my Catholic upbringing. As…

More Guns, Less Crime: Does the Lott Model Work in South Africa?

gunservant.com

Way back in October 2000, a gentleman by the name of Dr. Richard Wesson wrote a research paper placing the conclusions of Prof. John Lott’s More Guns, Less Crime in a South African context. This is an incredibly important piece of academic work, and I was saddened and disappointed about only recently learning of its existence, nearly 18 years later. None the less, this body of work remains completely relevant, and it is a highly important read for all South Africans who care about their constitutional Right to Life. It is presented here in full, with the document attached at the bottom in Word format.

Admiral Yamamoto, The Architect Of The Sneak Attack On Pearl Harbor

“Behind every blade of grass […]”

Give Me Liberty

H/T War History OnLine.

“Japan would never invade the United States. We would find a rifle behind every blade of grass.” Isoroku Yamamoto.

The man who planned the attack on Pearl Harbor, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, was an unusual and contradictory figure. A man with peaceful international connections around the world, he would lead his country’s navy in a war he did not believe in, trying to win a conflict he expected to lose. Though a senior figure who was not fighting on the front line, he would die in military action, as the tide of war hung in the balance.

1. An International Figure

Born in 1884, Isoroku Yamamoto became a career naval officer. He graduated from the Imperial Japanese Naval Academy at the age of twenty, was wounded at the Battle of Tsushima in the Russo-Japanese War, returned to training at the Naval Staff College, and emerged as a…

Deadly incident sparks gun control debate in Maine

H/T WGME On Your Side CBS 13.

The ghouls in the gun control crowd delight in dancing on the graves of shooting victims to promote their agenda.

PORTLAND (WGME) — Incidents like the death of a 5-year-old in Scarborough tend to illicit a strong reaction on both sides of the gun control issue.

Both those for and against gun control say this is a tragic loss.

Bill Harwood, the president of the Maine Gun Safety Coalition, and Bill Harmon, a former military police officer who’s dedicated many hours to teaching gun safety, spoke to CBS 13.

Because so little is known about what occurred Monday night, both men talked about the issue generally.

They have disagreements on gun laws and adding new ones, but what they both agree on is that this is an issue of education.

“It does motivate us to keep working to try and educate and alert…
