A while ago I was teaching an Iowa permit to carry weapons class and a woman asked me about concealed carry holster options. One of the videos that I recommended to her from youtube is shown below:
Colion Noir tackles the fractured gun community and the need for a unified front against the anti-gun agenda. As the season comes to a close, Colion reflects on the conversations he had and the minds he changed, and discusses what it means to identify as a gun owner with Farran, Kandace, Richard Ryan and the town hall participants.
Colion Noir breaks down the ambiguous ‘fear mongering’ accusation that undermines real world perspective. Mr. Noir addresses the reality of gun control, and how we must be vigilant to protect our gun rights.
Dana Loesch challenges every politician who has utopian gun-control dreams.
Colion Noir calls out anti-gun politicians and the mainstream media for their race-baiting rhetoric that says young black men shouldn’t own guns because they’re more likely to die from “gun violence.”
Colion Noir talks about the execution of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee in broad daylight in Chicago. He wonders if the kids who killed Tyshawn Lee had criminal records and asks if we don’t enforce our laws against perpetrators of terror, then who are the laws for? Inner-city violence isn’t a gun problem — it’s about people — and “gun control” is nothing more than a massive distraction taking the focus away from very real issues.
On January 5, 2016, the president unveiled his executive order plans to force gun control measures down America’s throat. Dana Loesch strikes back at the president’s extreme overreach by shedding light on his dishonest history of enforcing existing gun control legislation. The “Commander in Deceit” continues to empower and enable gang members, felons and repeat offenders … while the only people he continuously punishes are law-abiding citizens.
Author Dana Loesch speaks with John Stossel about gun control and mass shooting myths.
The film includes an interview with Amanda Collins, a college student at the University of Nevada, Reno, who was raped one night in October 2007 while walking to her car after a night class. Collins said she could have stopped her attacker had she been carrying her gun, which the school prohibited.
Guns in America. Kimberly Corban at Obama Gun Control Town Hall “Do you think a good guy with a gun can be a bulwark against a bad guy with a gun,” Cooper asks. Throws the question to Kimberly Corban, a rape survivor, who says that being able to buy a firearm is “a basic responsibility as a parent at this point.”
CNN Guns In America Town Hall. American Sniper Widow Tells Obama ‘We Can’t Outlaw Murder’ The first question for President Obama comes from Taya Kyle, the widow of Chris Kyle, on whom the book American Sniper was based. She worries that the laws will not be followed by the murderers. “Would it be a better use of our time to give people hope in a different way?” She says that America is at an all-time low for murder rate.
The NRA’s Wayne LaPierre explains the failure represented by gun background checks.
Below is a video clip in which John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center discusses the effect that gun bans have upon murder and other homicides.
Below is a video clip from an interview with Laura Carno, who created IAmCreatedEqual.com. She addresses self defense, women’s right to self defense, and related matters.
Below is an interview with Columbine School shooting survivor Evan Todd, and his opposition to the anti-gun laws that President Obama is proposing.
Below is a video clip that addresses media misinformation about so-called “assault weapons.”
Those opposed to gun rights are trotting out the idea of gun manufacturer liability again, despite the fact that the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (“PLCAA”), 15 U.S.C. §§ 7901-7903 (a Federal law) has made clear such liability does not exist:
I have written about the pointlessness of bans on so-called “assault weapons” before, and have also discussed how such firearms are rarely used by criminals anyway. The video clip below reinforces those points quite nicely:
In an effort to combat anti-gun biases in the mainstream media, Cam Edwards from NRA News breaks down and rebuts media misinformation – NRA News – January 7, 2013:
Below is a brief video review of the Smith & Wesson Model 500, chambered for .500 Smith & Wesson Magnum, by American Rifleman:
Below is a video demonstrating and discussing the Kel-Tec KSG, which is a rather unique pump action shotgun:
United States Supreme Court Justice Bryer recently stated that he believed that the founders of this county would have allowed gun control. Given that Justice Bryer voted against gun rights in D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago, I can’t say I was too surprised to hear that statement. However, I find myself in great disagreement with the idea that the framers of the constitution would have supported gun control. The video clip shown below has an excellent discussion of … Continued
In the video clip below, John Lott – the author of More Guns, Less Crime – discusses recent anti-gun articles that have appeared in medical journals, and the bias that is apparent in those articles:
I’ve had several women ask me for advice insofar as concealed carry holster options are concerned. As a male, I can’t give first-hand advice as far as holsters and women’s clothing are concerned. However, I can highly recommend the video clip show below, in which a woman discusses and demonstrates a variety of concealed carry (and open carry) holsters:
Below is an excellent series of video clips by nutnfancy, addressing the reliability/durability, ballistics, firepower, ergonomics, weight, operation, accuracy, accessories/versatility, optics, value, and track records of the AK-47 and the AR-15:
Below is a video clip in which author and attorney Stephen Halbrook discusses the Nordyke v. Alameda case (which I have previously mentioned). The outcome of this case, which deals with a gun show ban, will likely have profound effects upon our gun rights from coast to coast:
Below is a video clip of a cell phone gun, which holds 4 .22LR rounds:
A reader of this website recently requested that I review the Sign P239, a semiautomatic pistol. Unfortunately, I don’t own one of these pistols, and don’t have any friends who own one either. However, the following video review by Nutfancy does a great job discussing this handgun:
In the video clip below, Peter Schiff discusses how the Second Amendment’s purpose to provide protection against both governmental tyranny and criminals, rather than to only protect guns suitable for hunting. Mr Schiff also briefly discusses the types of arms protected by the 2nd Amendment, and how firearms are the great equalizer:
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:
I’ve previously discussed the Ft. Hood shooting and the attempt to blame guns for that crime. In the video clip below, the NRA’s Wayne Lapierre discusses that issue during an interview:
Below is a video clip in which Dr. Suzanna Hupp discusses the Virginia Tech shooting, the ineffectiveness of “gun free zones,” and the need for concealed carry:
Below is a video clip in which the Corbon DPX (9mm this time) is discussed and tested. While the testing is less scientific than the testing I referenced in the last article about the Corbon DXP, it seemed worth posting:
Below is a video clip from earlier this year, when the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre debated gun rights with Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell on Face the Nation. Throughout the debate, Governor Rendell attempts to play on the myths surrounding so-called “assault weapons,” and Mr. LaPierre does an admirable job rebutting those statements.
The video clip below shows the process of field stripping and reassembling two Springfield XD pistols: a .40 subcompact and a .45 tactical.
Below is an interesting video clip, showing the impacts various bullets against paper, metal, and ballistic gel. I’ve seen slow motion bullet impacts before, but never at 1 million frames per second.
The video clip shown below discusses the myth that America’s gun owners are responsible for the drug cartel related violence in Mexico. In particular, the unfounded but widely repeated statement that 90% of the guns used in Mexican violence can be traced to the United States is debunked:
Anti gun individuals like to blame guns and other objects that looks vaguely like guns for the violence in society, despite the fact that violence has been around a lot longer than guns, and criminals use many other tools to kill. However, as The Onion points out, it appears the real problem is violence in our dreams:
One of my favorite websites is The Onion – a satirical “news” website/newspaper. Unfortunately their latest video clip is something that I don’t find to be quite as funny as the rest of their work:
This news clip from the end of 2007 discusses how a woman used her handgun to chase off a pair of robbers who had posed as utility workers, tied her up, beat her, tasered her, and robbed her.
The video clip shown below provides a simple introduction to the ineffectiveness of gun control laws:
The video clip below discusses one of the many cases where a citizen with concealed carry is able to defend themselves, rather than being a victim. While this clip from about a year ago is generally good, I don’t like the way the reporter uses the word “retaliate” to describe the citizen’s use of a gun to save himself from an armed robber. Self defense is not retaliation, as I’ve noted before.
I’ve previously discussed various overt and subtle cases of anti gun groups putting out misinformation, with the hope that uninformed voters will be scared into supporting gun control. I’ve also talked about anti gun politicians who make baseless anti gun statements, all the while showing a lack of knowledge about the guns they are trying to ban. However I’ve found a new example that tops them all:
A naked man was attempting to break in to a daycare center, and the police were called. A police officer arrives, and uses her Taser to subdue to the man. After a couple shocks from the Taser, the naked man is able to get up and tackle the cop, almost grabbing her gun. Luckily, additional cops soon showed up and were able to arrest the man. As I’ve said before, there is no substitute for a gun.
Impact Guns has released a nice video clip showing a 3D animation of the new XD(M) pistol being fired, which can be see below:
This is part 5 of 5 in the series looking at how civilian disarmament is a step on the road to tyranny.
This is part 2 of 5 in the series looking at how civilian disarmament is a step on the road to tyranny. General background information on this series can be seen in Part 1.
The John Birch Society released a 5 part series addressing civilian disarmament and how it is a step towards tyranny. This is part 1 of 5.
Its always annoyed me to hear people incorrectly refer to magazines as “clips”. This video clip does a nice job explaining the difference:
Mexican law enforcement recently completed the largest gun bust in their history. The view clip below shows what was captured, ranging from pistols, to rifles, to grenade launchers. A tip of the hat to Say Uncle.
