Gun Safety Video Clip

I’ve previously discussed gun safety and responsible gun storage.  However, those are important topics, and I think the video clip below does a good job reinforcing those points:

Exciting Career Changes

A Website Dedicated to the “Modern Sporting Rifle”

I’ve previously discussed how the AR-15 is properly called a “modern sporting rifle” instead of an “assault weapon.”  Along those lines, I would like to point out, which is a website dedicated to this issue. . . . be an informed gun owner and to use the following facts to correct misconceptions about these rifles. Support the cause and banish the term Assault Weapon from any conversation. Replace it with “MSR” or Modern Sporting Rifle. [Read more here.]

“Disguised Weapons”

I recently read an article from Don’, which I found to be quite funny.  It involves a person’s humorous attempt at creating (poorly) disguised weapons for self defense.  While I normally prefer to focus on the serious issue of gun rights and self defense, I found this article and its pictures to be too funny to not post.  An exerpt from the article: This cleverly disguised weapon may look like a tissue box, but is actually a Benelli M3 12 … Continued

The Caesar Rodney Institute (CRI) conducted a 5 month long investigation into unconstitutional gun ban in Delaware’s public housing.  Upon finding that the state’s 4 public housing authorities forbid residents to have a gun in their home for self defense, the CRI contacted the NRA for assistance.  After the NRA become involved,

A Unique Home Invasion and Self Defense Case – Video Clip

The video clip below discussed how 67-year old James Tillman of Sacramento, California used his gun to fend off the multiple burglars who broke into his home to steal his medical marijuana.  Mr. Tillman and his family, who were home at the time of the home invasion, were unharmed.  One suspect suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, and the others fled:

Iowa Carry’s New Legislative Action Center

Iowa Carry, an affiliate group of the Second Amendment Foundation that focuses on concealed carry rights for the state of Iowa, has created its own legislative action center.  From that website, gun rights supporters can easily stay up to date on pending gun legislation and contact their representatives with just a few clicks.  I would like to encourage Iowa residents to take a moment and use the legislative action center to urge their representatives to support HF2255, which would greatly … Continued

The Truth about so-called “Assault Weapons'” Firepower Video Clip

I’ve previously discussed how bans on so-called “assault weapons” are irrational, and based upon the use of fear tactics by disingenuous politicians.  One myths is that these so-called “assault weapons” are more powerful and lethal than ordinary hunting guns.  As the video clip below shows, the rounds fired by “assault weapons” tend to be less powerful than those fired by ordinary deer hunting rifles that have been around for decades:

SmartCarry Concealed Carry Holster Review

Below is my review of the SmartCarry holster.  I said I would publish this review quite a while ago, right after I got my concealed carry permit, but forgot all about that for 6 months.  Thankfully, a reader emailed me about it, and so here is the review:

“Fables, Myths & Other Tall Tales about GUN LAWS, CRIME and CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS”

I would encourage everyone to check out either the online version or the downloadable (PDF) version of the NRA’s “Fables, Myths & Other Tall Tales about GUN LAWS, CRIME and CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS” pamphlet.  It debunks many anti-gun myths, and should be of help when debating gun rights with those who take as fact the anti gun and anti self defense propaganda which saturates the mainstream media.
