    The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy. FBI counterintelligence investigators have focused on the activities of Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank who is known for his close relationships with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and the NRA, the sources said. It is illegal to use foreign money to influence federal elections. It’s unclear how long the Torshin inquiry has been ongoing, but the news comes...

    James gave Maxim the exclusive first look at his Trump gun, seen above in all its appropriately gilded glory. He also talked about his company, Jesse James Firearms Unlimited (that’s JJFU for short), designing firearms for the military, guns versus motorcycles, and, somewhat unexpectedly, his affection for the 1971 cult movie Harold and Maude.

  • Girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter told authorities she helped load ammo (tr)

    Washington Examiner ^ | Jan 13, 2018 | Diana Stancy Correll
    Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of the Las Vegas shooter, informed authorities she occasionally helped Stephen Paddock load ammunition into magazines and, as a result, her fingerprints were probably on some bullets, according to unsealed court documents. No evidence suggested “criminal involvement” by Danley at the time the Oct. 3 document was published, but investigators also did not rule out the possibility. Danley was out of the country in the Philippines to visit her family when the Oct. 1 attack occurred. The documents appear to show Paddock exchanged emails about purchasing rifles and bump stocks several months before the attack. A...
  • Mother of armed robber shot dead by man defending his children: ‘Why did he shoot him five times?’

    Mother of armed robber shot dead by man defending his children: ‘Why did he shoot him five times?’ After an armed man entered a Popeye’s restaurant in San Antonio last month and reportedly pointed a gun at a customer’s children, that customer — a licensed concealed carrier — shot the gunman dead. But now the mother of the deceased 19-year-old gunman is asking why the father who fatally shot her son chose to fire more than once.

    A huntswoman who repeatedly whipped a man with her riding crop after he grabbed the reins of her horse will not be charged by police. Jane Miller, 56, was filmed having a furious clash with anti-hunt activists while out riding in Herstmonceux, East Sussex in November. Footage captured her striking a man around the head and face 17 times with her whip, while screaming 'get off my horse'. However, Ms Miller has avoided punishment after Sussex Police said they would not be proceeding with the investigation. The hunstwoman is the wife of Richard Goring, whose family founded the five-star Goring...

    Starting later this year, residents of Pennsylvania will be allowed to seek out medicinal marijuana products as a treatment option for 17 health conditions. There’s just one catch: Any patient who also happens to be a proud gun owner must first relinquish or trade in his weapons before receiving his medicine, according to a statement from the Pennsylvania State Police. “It’s unlawful to keep possession of firearms obtained prior to registering (for medicinal marijuana),” said state police spokesman Ryan Tarkowski, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “The Pennsylvania State Police is not in the business of offering legal advice, but it...

    Black Guns Matter, a Second Amendment education group with an urban focus, will be featured in and sponsoring SHOT Show, the largest gun show in the world. Maj Toure founded Black Guns Matter in 2015. The group is focused on providing Second Amendment education and information to urban communities that are plagued by violence. “I don’t think there’s a black gun culture or white gun culture,” Toure says on the group’s website. “I think there’s an informed gun culture and an ignorant gun culture.” In their December feature on black gun ownership, Toure told The Huffington Post why gun ownership...

    A lawsuit has now been filed by several gun rights proponents against California's unconstitutional regulations of semi-automatic rifles, which they call erroneously call "assault rifles." At the end of November, several guns rights proponents and organizations filed a complaint against the State of California for openly violating the right to keep and bear arms and for making criminal that which was previously lawful. Four gun owners: George Holt, Irvin Hoff, Michael Louie, and Rick Russel, along with four gun rights groups: the Firearms Policy Coalition, Firearms Policy Foundation, The Calguns Foundation, and Second Amendment Foundation filed a complaint on November 30,...

    Judicial Watch ^ | January 4, 2018
    An investigation requested by two fierce anti-gun members of Congress to determine if firearms are purchased illegally from internet dealers has come up empty. Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren demanded the probe in the aftermath of mass shootings and the investigative arm of Congress, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), conducted a lengthy covert operation to try to purchase firearms illegally from internet dealers. All 72 of Congressional investigators’ attempts to purchase a firearm illegally via the surface web were unsuccessful, slamming Cummings’ and Warren’s claims that guns are easily obtained by criminal elements on the internet....

    The Washington Standard ^ | 01-03-2017 | Tim Brown
    There are several items that Americans should keep their eyes on in 2018, and they each have to do with the rights of gun owners. Awr Hawkins of Breitbart News listed four things that were begun in 2017 but failed to succeed.  I'll list them and comment on each one. National Reciprocity—National reciprocity for concealed carry passed the House on December 6, 2017. It was introduced by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) on January 3, 2017, then sat idly until conservatives were able to overcome Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) stonewalling. Now it has gone to the Senate, where it sat idly throughout December,...

    Presidents correctly and rightfully expect their appointees to at a minimum, remain silent about policy differences, especially in areas where they have no expertise. President Trump is not one to suffer fools at high levels. A recent potential appointee seemed to wish to score political points at the expense of the President.  Dean L. Winslow made a basic, rookie error. He lost. From At my hearing, jet-lagged and in mourning over those killed, I was asked by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) about the military discharge status of the shooter. He had been given a bad-conduct rather than dishonorable discharge...
  • California Gun Owners Rush To Stock Up On Ammo Before New Law Takes Effect

    12/28/2017 9:26:27 AM PST · by Kaslin · 41 replies ^ | December 28, 2017 | Matt Vespa
    2018 is upon us and California gun owners are sprinting to stock up on ammunition before a new law bans home deliveries. That’s right. Next year, ammunition can no longer be shipped to your home in The Golden State. It’ll have to be sent to a firearms dealer with a federal firearms license or any other entity that’s been approved by the Department of Justice. And yes, a background check will be required prior to the transfer (via CBS San Francisco): Ammunition sales across California are skyrocketing heading into the end of the year, but the deals have nothing to...
  • Fake News: SELF Magazine Claims Trump Ended Background Checks for the Severely Mentally Ill

    On February 28, President Trump signed the repeal of Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban. On March 2, SELF magazine reported that Trump had ended firearm background checks for persons who were severely mentally ill. This is Fake News 101 and it is a mantra that many other mainstream outlets have also pushed. For example, also on March 2, NBC News reported that Trump ended firearm “gun checks for people with mental illness” and during the process of repealing of the ban NYT, NYDN, and HuffPost accused Republicans of helping the mentally ill get guns.

    Guns in the News ^ | 12-26-2017 | Tim Brown
    Gun confiscation - That's really that aim of every single piece of "gun control" legislation is all about.  It's an unlawful and unconstitutional means to take your guns. Those who promote such things often mock those of us who warn of the logical ends of what their agenda. The latest to do so is a member of the group New Yorkers Against Gun Violence (NYAGV). In a recent opinion piece by one of its members, Rick Fuller, titled “Gun recertification a step for safety, not confiscation,” wrote that handgun owners in New York are "up in arms again" because they...

    Training for armed self-defense is like preparing for a natural disaster, according to the research of two Oregon State University professors. The researchers set out to understand how Americans who keep and carry handguns for self-defense mitigate the risks involved, such as accidentally shooting oneself, inaccurately identifying a threat or being clumsy. The professors identified ways that handguns owners work to diminish those risks, including through training, mental rehearsing and routine maintenance. The researchers determined that while those efforts mitigate the physical, legal and moral risks associated with using handguns for self-defense, it does not remove all risk. “It’s...

    The Democratic Party, on Wednesday, voted overwhelmingly for Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to replace resigned Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) on the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler, a constitutional law expert, won the spot over Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), an architect of immigration legislation, by secret ballot with 118 to 72 votes. The Washington Post noted on Thursday that the decision to fill their top spot on the committee demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willingness “[t]o ready themselves for a battle with Trump that could end with impeachment proceedings.” Should the Democrats regain control of the House during next year’s mid-term elections, they...

    Christmas is less than a week away and that means the time is right for a list of seven concealed carry handguns for last minute shoppers. Some of the handguns on the list are revolvers, others semiautomatics, but all are concealable and demonstrably popular for self-defense. Ruger LCP II—The Ruger LCP II is an updated version of the extremely popular LCP. The pistol is chambered in .380 with a grip that is slightly wider than the original LCP. The wider grip was added to diminish recoil. The grip of the LCP II is textured to help keep the gun steady...

The House minority leader sent the tweet last week after House Republicans passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, sending it to the Senate by a 231-198 vote. “Inviting violent criminals to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save lives,” Pelosi tweeted. “Inviting domestic abusers to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save lives. Inviting convicted stalkers to...
