Machine Guns, Swords, And Tanks: This Colorado Man Definitely Has More Guns Than You
Post Date: 2017-06-28 12:57:47 by Deckard
Because of Americas fierce reputation for being a heavily armed nation, it would probably surprise most foreigners to learn that the majority of Americans dont own any firearms. And of the people who are gun owners, most only own a couple of firearms. What makes America such a heavily armed nation are the private collections belonging to super-owners (who gun control advocates love to complain about). This demographic, which amounts to 3% of the population, owns half of the firearms in the United States. Each person in this group owns an average of 17 guns. That may sound impressive, but theres another level of gun ownership that blows those numbers out ...
Clarence Thomas: ‘Improbable’ that 2nd Amendment Only Protects Carrying a Gun in Your Home
Post Date: 2017-06-27 18:20:53 by cranky
In his dissent to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) June 26 announcement that it would not review Peruta v. California, Justice Clarence Thomas contended he finds it improbable that the Second Amendment only protects a right to carry a gun in ones own home. Peruta has become on the focal point of opposition to Californias good cause requirement for issuance of concealed carry permits. On January 12, 2017, Breitbart News reported that SCOTUS was asked to review Peruta in hopes of securing a ruling in support of the fundamental right to bear arms. Petitioners specifically wanted SCOTUS to rule whether the Second Amendment ...
Justices Thomas and Gorsuch: Supreme Court Should Take More Second Amendment Cases
Post Date: 2017-06-27 15:21:11 by cranky
Gun owners were disappointed Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take perhaps the highest-profile Second Amendment case in the country right now: Peruta v. California. Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch share those gun owners disappointment, declaring the need for the nations highest court to require adherence to its Second Amendment precedents. The Supreme Court has only decided two cases on the right to keep and bear arms: D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago. Both involved a law-abiding citizen seeking a handgun in his home for personal protection. Peruta took a logical next step, involving an elderly law-abiding citizen who wanted the opportunity to ...

NRA Spokesman Colion Noir: “Castile Should Be Alive.”
Post Date: 2017-06-21 10:30:34 by Deckard
The NRAs top players are still silent and for the most part, excusing themselves from the mess created by the death of Philando Castile. But now one prominent NRA spokesman has come out, and he thinks Castile should be alive. As mentioned by The Daily Sheeple yesterday, the NRA did make an announcement shortly after word broke of another police officer involved shooting. Considering Castile notified the police officer, Jeronimo Yanez, that he was armed, the NRA likely felt it was a gun issue, and its certainly looking like thats the case. Yanez was found not guilty on Friday in what was obvious to most as a murder. In case it was missed yesterday, The Daily ...
Seattle gun tax update: Sales way down, shootings way up
Post Date: 2017-06-17 13:33:42 by Tooconservative
Do you happen to recall this story out of Washington state that we covered here last year? It dealt with a steep tax on firearms and ammunition levied in Seattle, ostensibly intended to fund research into the effects of gun violence. It went into effect in 2016, receiving great applause from gun grabbing groups around the nation. But after nearly a year of being in place, the city was refusing to release any figures on how much money the tax had brought in nor what impact, if any, it was having on gun violence. More time has passed and the citys elected officials still arent in the mood to discuss it, but as Fox News reports this week, some of the results are impossible to ...

Post Date: 2017-06-10 09:17:17 by cranky
A robbery suspect in Brazil entered a convenience store and drew his gun, only to be shot multiple times in a situation in which everyone was armed. Concealed Nation reports that the patrons were all off-duty police who were in the store shopping.

The robber is shot immediately by one of the off-duty officers who is off-camera at first, then comes into the picture when the robber goes down. The other men all draw their guns as well, some pointing at the robber and others walking toward the door ...

Trump Administration Seeks To Deny Gun Rights To Non-Violent “Criminals”
Post Date: 2017-05-29 06:15:06 by Deckard
Donald Trump was endorsed by the NRA (National Rifle Association) and he assured his voters hed protect their second amendment right to keep and bear arms. Considering his new desire to keep non-violent criminals from owning guns, this flip-flop on values needs to be known. Scouring through conservative alternative media left much to be desired on this, while the left-leaning outlets are having a heyday. The truth is more important than partisan politics, so it bears mentioning that this wont sit nicely in the belly of those on the political right. But Sessions vs. Binderup is a big deal to anyone who seeks freedom from the continued oppression of ...

Saw this on another board, thought I would share. First they came for the negros- but I didnt speak out because I wasnt a negro Then they came for the jihadists- but I didnt speak out because I wasnt a jihadist Then they came for the zionists- but I didnt speak out because I wasnt a zionist Then they came for the communists- but I didnt speak out because I wasnt a communist Then they stopped coming as they realized that nearly all the problems and troublemakers were gone And they really stopped coming because they realized everyone left had AR-15's, M1A's, FAL's, etc, all with a pile of loaded mags, and bayonets fixed.

WATCH: Cop Stops Men for Open Carrying and Then Upholds His Oath to the Constitution
Post Date: 2017-04-27 06:22:44 by Deckard
The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows for all citizens to protect themselves and their loved ones by granting gun ownership rights to all Americans. But over the years, those rights have been impeded by what seems to be a laundry list of requirements gun owners must meet in order to be able to actually carry their firearm on their person. In fact, if someone doesnt have a squeaky clean record, theyre more than likely not going to be able to carry a firearm in many U.S. states. Fortunately, law abiding citizens are undeterred in their efforts to exercise their rights to carry a weapon for self-defense. But to describe the inequities that still exist, we bring ...
A Marine's .50-caliber sniper rifle failed during a firefight — so he called customer service
Post Date: 2017-04-24 22:06:33 by Justified
The Barrett M107 .50-caliber long-range sniper rifle is a firearm made for the modern war on terrorism. Officially adopted by the U.S. Army in 2002 and boasting a 2,000-meter range, a suppressor-ready muzzle brake, and recoil-minimizing design, the semi-automatic offers "greater range and lethality against personnel and materiel targets than other sniper systems in the U.S. inventory," according to an assessment by Military.com. While Barrett's reputation of "flawless reliability" has made the M107 the sniper weapon of choice, the rifle is just like any other essential tool: It often breaks when you need it most. And that's apparently what happened to one Marine ...

Post Date: 2017-04-24 12:56:27 by Deckard
Detroit, MI 19-year-old, Juwan Alexander Plummer, who has never been in trouble with police, thought he was doing the right thing earlier this month when he grabbed a shotgun to protect his mom and little brother from the would-be robbers at his front door. While many will agree that he did, indeed, do the right thing, the court does not because the men Plummer thought were robbers were actually cops. Plummer now faces charges of two counts each of Intentional Discharge of a Firearm in a Building Causing Serious Injury; Intentional Discharge of a Firearm in a Building Causing Injury, Felonious Assault. He has also been charged with four counts of Felony ...

Post Date: 2017-04-21 10:31:32 by Deckard

A Navy unit out of Newport, R.I. took custody of five military-grade ordnance shells also found in the home. Police received information from a credible source that the resident at that address had numerous unsecured rifles and shotguns strewn about his house and as a result, obtained a search warrant issued by a Clerk Magistrate at Quincy District Court. They executed the search warrant at 2 p.m. When the military shells were found, officers backed out of the home and notified the Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad. Members of the bomb squad ...

Can a Gun Shoot Itself?
Post Date: 2017-03-02 16:31:11 by hondo68
Mar 2, 2017Gun control advocates routinely act as if firearms are inherently violent, rather than being inert, morally neutral tools that can be employed for either benign or malevolent purposes. Strangely enough, this fallacy is also commonly found in official reports from law enforcement agencies of incidents involving irresponsible firearms use by officers and media outlets generally retail those official statements without critical commentary.The Tulsa World newspaper recently republished a statement from the Wagoner County, Oklahoma Sheriffs Office describing how two citizens suffered minor injuries at a local restaurant when a reserve deputys firearm supposedly ...
