    ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Maryland's ban on 45 kinds of assault weapons and its 10-round limit on gun magazines were upheld Tuesday by a federal appeals court in a decision that met with a strongly worded dissent. In a 10-4 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., said the guns banned under Maryland's law aren't protected by the Second Amendment.

    Californians are rushing to purchase the evil AR15 semi-automatic "assault" rifle before a new ban goes into effect on January 1, 2017. Governor Jerry Brown signed the gun-control measure into law back in July and with a 10-day waiting period for all gun sales, time is running out to purchase the gun and take possession before next year. All of these newly purchased guns must be registered with the state before the deadline kicks in on Wednesday, December 21.

    OCEANSIDE, N.Y. (AP) -- A New York couple was horrified when a UPS delivery that they thought was a Christmas present turned out to be an assault rifle. Newsday reports (http://nwsdy.li/2gI9lsO ) that Joel Berman opened the keyboard-sized case in front of his wife and 6-year-old granddaughter Wednesday night in Oceanside, on Long Island.
  • Support for “Assault Rifles” Ban at all time Low Gallup

    Gallop released results of a poll taken on the 5-9 of October, 2016.  The last time they had asked the question was in 2012.   Support for a ban is the lowest it has ever been, since the question was first asked.I am not surprised at the drop.  It indicates that the population is becoming more educated about crime and “assault rifles”.  Gallup notes that the drop in support for an “assault rifle” ban correlates with a general decline in trust in the government. Historically, people who own guns have been far, far less in favor of placing more infringements...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 9/15/2016 | J Hines
    Without leaving your Head out in the Open Guns that shoot around corners are more than grist for the mill of an old Bugs Bunny plot in a Saturday morning cartoon. They’re real, and were first used, with limited success, by the German army in World War II. The weapon in question was the STG44 Krummlauf, a variant of the standard STG44 assault rifle. Why on earth would you want to shoot around a corner? The better question is why on earth wouldn’t you? It’s a lot safer than standing out in broad daylight where the enemy can take shots...

    A police officer who was one of the first to arrive at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando has claimed he was made to wait while Omar Mateen wandered around the club gunning people down. The FBI said this week that police first responders 'engaged the shooter' inside the club at 2.08am but Officer Brandon Cornwell said he had been told to wait for a SWAT team to arrive. It is known that Mateen, who was heavily armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and a handgun and was feared to be carrying explosives, had an exchange of fire with a security...

    We've all heard former Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan's admonition that "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts." Yet the public debate about guns in America takes Moynihan's warning to the next level: Each side not only has its own facts, it has its own language. For instance, take the rush after the recent Orlando shootings to ban "assault" or "military-style" weapons like the AR-15 rifle. Gun control advocates immediately jumped to regulate sales of "automatic weapons" and "assault rifles" like the AR-15, which they deem too deadly for one individual to need. Scary stories about...

    ...The firearm used in the Orlando massacre was not an AR-15 but a Sig Sauer MCX... They are a class of firearm the National Shooting Sports Foundation calls “Modern Sporting Rifles” or, causally, MSRs. ... Is an AR an assault rifle or isn’t it? “AR” stands for the original designer “ArmaLite Rifle,” which makes model numbers AR-5, AR-7, AR-10... you get the idea. Civilian AR-platform rifles are not, in fact, “assault rifles” nor are they “automatic rifles” or “weapons of war.” Only military selective-fire rifles designed for battleground use like the M16 and the AK-47 are accurately described as “assault...

    After reading that Academy Sports was pulling their AR style rifles off the shelves, I headed to my neighborhood Gander Mountain here in Jacksonville, Florida to see if they had wussed out as well. If Gander Mountain is pulling their AR rifles off the shelves, it is only because they are putting them in boxes and sending them out the door with customers. I approached the hunting department around 7:00 pm. I hadn't planned on buying anything, though I hadn't dismissed the idea either. I was just there to look around. AR-styles have always interested me. I am familiar with...

    “Pray for Orlando" we read on Facebook and Twitter. Prayer is vitally important, but is there more we can do? As United Methodist Christians, we mourn with the victims and families of those wounded and killed in the shootings on June 12, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. We may even pray and wonder if anything could have been done to avert this heinous act. But should we do more? Is there anything that can be done to keep something similar from happening in the future? While we may not agree on a solution, many of us agree there is a problem....

Because there is a real lesson there, one that the Germans will probably ignore, but it's worth a try. Plus, those pictures are nice distractions during this cold spell we've having.

    A 19-year-old man faces grand theft charges for allegedly trying to steal assault rifles from a pawn shop in Davie by stuffing them down his pants.

The Sun Sentinel reports that Broward County Judge John Hurley, reading from an arrest report, said Alvarez was seen Tuesday taking an AK-47 from a display and sticking it down his pants. Hurley said Alvarez removed the weapon, then took another assault rifle off another display, put it down his pants and then limped out the door. Police say the owner of...

    Blizzards and AK's go together like baseball and hotdogs. Since we're in the middle of another snow storm and given the recent passing of Kalashnikov, I decided to talk about a few of the things that make AK's so unique. The AK featured in this video is a Polytech Legend in 7.62x39 which I bought back in the late 1980's. The bull-pup I affectionately call the "Hebrew Hammer" is a IWI Tavor with a Mepro MOR red-dot sight.

Hood, whose contributor Charles Blow once used “assault handgun” in a debate with yours truly on 2A, and whose 9 pm eastern host thinks AR stands for “assault rifle” wasn’t talking about the MKA 1919.

  • California Representative Henry Waxman Introduces Bill to Ban "Assault Weapons" Parts Kits

    As California Congressman Henry Waxman promised, he has introduced a Bill to ban the sale of “Parts kits” for “Assault Rifles, Assault Shotguns, and Assault Pistols." This also includes a ban on Receiver blanks. The Bill defines an “assault weapons parts kit as: “ any part or combination of parts not designed and intended for repair or replacement but designed and intended to enable a consumer who possesses all such necessary parts to assemble a semiautomatic assault weapon…” Which raised the question of vagueness in the law as to which components of an “Assault Weapons Parts Kits” could be sold...
