    As we roll into the New Year, we are witnessing the prelude to the culmination of a titanic struggle between three great actors. Three great social forces are now set in motion for a 2016 showdown and collision that will, in historical terms, be on par with the First and Second World Wars. Two of these great social forces are currently allied in a de facto coalition against the third. They have forged an unwritten agreement to jointly murder the weakest of the three forces while it is in their combined power to do so. One of these two social...

    By 1944, the Third Reich pulled out all the stops when it came to technological marvels. It was the year of the Wunderwaffe, the “wonder weapon” – devices born out of a combination of science and desperation that Nazi Germany hoped would knock the Allies back on their heels. The V-2 intermediate range ballistic missile, the V-1 cruise missile, the Me-262 jet fighter are the weapons that most often come to mind in the Wunderwaffe category.

    A federal discrimination lawsuit filed by a Muslim activist group against a Florida gun retailer owner who declared his shop a “Muslim-Free Zone” has been dismissed. U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom ruled that Florida Gun Supply owner Andy Hallinans sign was protected by the First Amendment, and the activists couldn’t prove they were injured by the action, a local NBC affiliate reported.The plaintiff, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Florida, has 30 days to appeal the decision. Mr. Hallinan made headlines earlier this year when he declared his Inverness store a 'Muslim-free zone' in the wake of the shooting of...

    There will be a gun turn in event on Saturday, 12 December, 2015 in Clearwater, Florida. Clearwater is in Pinellas County.

Police say the man with the gun, 31-year-old Tyrece Jefferson, approached a clerk at the store and demanded money. The man who was with his wife and 5-month-old baby wrestled the would-be robber out the front door and forced him to the ground, holding him until police arrived to arrest him. Police say the gun ended up going off while the man was taken down, but no one was hurt. It all...

Currently, silencers are subject to the NFA process with “CLEO sign-off,” a 4 to...

    NEWTON, Iowa -- Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) downplayed the role anti-abortion rhetoric may have played in the fatal shooting of three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado and suggested the suspect was a “transgendered leftist activist" at a campaign stop in Iowa on Sunday. Speaking with reporters following the event, Cruz rejected suggestions that the shooter was part of the anti-abortion movement, taking issue with the “vicious rhetoric on the left blaming those who are pro-life.” Robert Lewis Dear, 57, was taken into custody Friday night after allegedly opening fire inside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs,...

    The Second Amendment was written when only single-shot muskets and pistols were available, and they were far more critical in hunting for food than any hunting weapon is today. In 1776, the young nation’s leaders could not afford a standing army, so adopted the Swiss model of requiring certain citizens to be armed to maintain a ready and standby militia, and have the weapons of the day in their possession to enable that militia to assemble quickly if there was an external or internal threat. Hence, that’s what the American Founding Fathers clearly intended the Second Amendment to support. Today,...

Milojko Brzakovic, director of the Zastava (Banner) Arms factory in the city of Kragujevac in central Serbia, said that they were part of a batch of M70 assault rifles, a improved Yugoslav copy of the Soviet-designed AK47, produced in 1987 and 1988.

    When media outlets from the National Journal to Rolling Stone cover the bipartisan push for criminal justice reform — an effort that includes everyone from Rand Paul to Cory Booker, the Koch brothers to even the ACLU — their go-to phrase to characterize the movement is "unlikely coalition." Actually, there's nothing particularly surprising about the fact that civil libertarians come in more than one flavor or political party. Disagreement on, say, taxation doesn't necessitate disagreement on mass incarceration. Meanwhile, the media have treated the budding partnership between the ascendant Black Lives Matter and the perennially frustrated gun control movement as...

    Since the terrorist attacks in Paris, such far-away places as Pennsylvania have experienced a surge in applications for concealed handgun permits. Permit requests have at least doubled in some large counties, including Allegheny. Pennsylvania has more than 1 million permit holders — 10.6 percent of the adult population — so the undoubtedly short-lived surge won't dramatically change the number of permit holders, but an increase still will make Pennsylvanians safer. Police tend to support an increase in permit holders. “What would help most in preventing large-scale shootings in public?” PoliceOne asked its 450,000 American officer members in 2013. The most...

That did not happen. In August, UC Berkeley Police Chief Margo Bennett left her gun in her car while she went jogging. It was stolen. Next, thieves boosted guns from a Hayward cop’s car in Oakland and a California Highway Patrol officer’s car in San Francisco. There is a word for leaving guns where anyone can grab them: sloppy.

    Colorado Springs, the location of an attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic that left three people dead, is a centre of rightwing Christian culture with a “wild west mentality” when it comes to guns. The attack, by a lone gunman carrying a rifle or shotgun, took place at a clinic that is the site of regular anti-abortion protests by the city’s pro-life Christian groups. Planned Parenthood, aware of hostility about their work, recently moved to the new facility, hoping it would provide more security for staff. The building has been likened to a fortress by anti-abortion campaigners and Friday’s attacks...

That is an increase of approximately 400 shootings over the same time last year. [Snip] Chicago implemented a "violence tax" at suburban Cook County gun stores in April 2013. The tax is gathered on each gun and bullet sold within the county. Then, in 2014-the first full calendar year after the implementation of the tax-the Chicago Tribune reported 434 deaths-a 19 death increase over 2013.

    One man is dead after a shooting Wednesday in Aiken. Coroner Tim Carlton said Frank Frazier Jr., 23, was fatally shot at 1pm, Wednesday on Willis Hill Road in Aiken. According to witnesses, a couple was purchasing a car from Frazier that was posted in a Craigslist ad. It is then alleged Fraizer and an acquaintance of his each pulled gun on the couple in an attempt to rob the couple. The woman in response pulled her gun and shot Frazier and the other man fled from the scene. The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the matter.

    Are you the kind of person who likes the Home Shopping Network but thinks it could be massively improved with a lot less jewelry and a lot more firearms and concealed weapons apparel for women? If so, next year will be a banner year for you because GunTV, a new, 24-hour live-shopping channel dedicated to the sale of guns and gun-related gear, is scheduled for a January 2016 launch. The station will be run by The Social Responsibility Network (which appears to run nothing else). Louisiana-based Sports South, a 174-year-old distributor of guns and ammunition, is a partner in the...

    Are you looking for a reason to shop on Black Friday? I'm skipping it, like I do every year. I'm too much of a princess to stand out in the cold and I certainly don't like to wait in line. But I do love a good deal, especially a good deal on firearms. So if you haven't entirely ruled out some Black Friday madness, here are some deals on firearms that might motivate you to participate in the American tradition of freezing outside while you wait for bargains. Gander Mountain I love, love, love Gander Mountain. It's my first stop...

    Seeking once again to take advantage of an opportunity, anti-gun Democrats are using the horrific massacre in Paris to revive a moribund bill by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to remove precious rights from anyone on the government's "no-fly" or "terrorist watch list." Senate Bill 551, offered back in February, was dead on arrival, but the Paris massacre is being seen as an opportunity to breathe life back into it. In re-introducing the bill, she says if they can't fly, they shouldn't be able to buy a gun: "If you're too dangerous to board a plane, you're too dangerous to own...

    People like Senator David Leyonhjelm are using the tragedy of the Paris attacks to further their pro-gun agenda, twisting facts to create a narrative that is misleading and dangerous. On Tuesday, in response to a tweet that read: “Aust’s tough gun laws have better insulated us against a Paris-style terror attack, Keenan said ...” Leyonhjelm tweeted: — David Leyonhjelm (@DavidLeyonhjelm) November 24, 2015 Sure helped a lot in Paris. And let's not mention the Lindt Cafe and Parramatta. https://t.co/8yfuKG6Gbx In fact, Leyonhjelm has appointed himself Australian “spokesman” of the NRA, the US pro-gun lobby, which has political influence disproportionate to...

    During the November 25 airing of Fox News’ Special Report, French Ambassador to the United States Gerard Araud countered Donald Trump’s emphasis on the importance of an armed citizenry by claiming that armed citizens succeed in defending themselves “only in the movies.” Araud was specifically reacting to a tweet sent after the January 7 Charlie Hebdo attacks in which Trump wrote, “Isn’t it interesting that the tragedy in Paris took place in one of the toughest gun control countries in the world?” Talking Points Memo reported that Araud responded to the tweet by calling Trump a “vulture,” then deleted the...

    On Wednesday, 25 November, 2015, President Barack Hussein Obama signed the National Defense Authorization act. He had vetoed the first version of the bill to reach his desk on 22 October, 2015, about a month ago. In the latest version, S. 1356, there is a section, 1087, which re-authorizes the Civilian Marksmanship Program to sell surplus 1911 and 1911A1 pistols and their parts and accessories to the public. The sales are limited to 10,000 per year. There are about 100,000 of these pistols available that are surplus, so they should be available for a several years.From the bill(pdf):''(h) AUTHORIZED TRANSFERS.-(1)...

    Imagine if the first bullet in a cop's chamber were a blank bullet. Would this approach save lives? What if a police department adopted this approach as standard procedure. Or, better yet, if legislation mandated this requirement for state and local police departments. Would it help save lives? Police in Britain, Ireland, Norway, Iceland and New Zealand typically do not carry weapons at all when they are patrolling the streets. Surely, crimes in those countries are no less threatening than what we experience in the U.S. The idea is not to ban guns from the police departments here. Rather, it...
