  • Lawmakers urge Gov. Hogan to close Maryland’s gun shops during coronavirus emergency that’s shut down other stores

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is getting pressure to close down the state’s gun stores, which have been allowed to remain open during the coronavirus pandemic when most other retailers have had to shut their doors. Under a series of executive orders — including a stay-at-home order issued Monday — Hogan has gradually closed schools, sit-down restaurants, malls, theaters, gyms, casinos and businesses deemed “nonessential” in hopes of slowing the spread of the virus. Gun shops and shooting ranges, however, made the cut as an “essential” business. The ability of gun stores to remain open during this pandemic is worrisome for...

    The run on gun stores has overwhelmed the gun background-check system. Licensed dealers have told me that they are getting busy signals whenever they try contacting the relevant federal and state agencies. They say that they are having an “impossible” time completing background checks. If the system worked correctly, gun sales would have been still higher.

  • March Saw the Biggest Gun Sales on Record

    March saw the biggest gun sales on record. And with many states and local governments shutting down gun stores in March, there were clearly many people who wanted guns but couldn’t get them. The true demand for guns was undoubtedly even much higher. The 2.3 million background checks completed during March were 29 percent higher than the busiest month in 2016, the previous yearly high, when people were fearful that Hillary Clinton’s election would lead to gun bans. The run on gun stores has overwhelmed the gun background-check system. Licensed dealers have told me that they are getting busy signals...
  • New Legislation Would Ensure 90 Day Suppressor Transfers

    Guns America Dugest ^ | 4/2/2020 | S.H. Blannelberry
    Get a suppressor in 90 days or fewer!!! That is the thinking behind Congressman Greg Steube (R-FL-17) new bill, “H.R. 6126 – the End the Normalized Delay of Suppressors (ENDS) Act.” Introduced last month, the ENDS Act would cap suppressor transfer times at 90 days, meaning as long as the prospective purchaser wasn’t denied during the National Firearms Act (NFA) process, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) would have to automatically approve the transfer after 90 days. No more insane wait times! Currently, some purchasers can wait up to 18 months before getting their can. “I have...

    Another Armed Samaritan came to the assistance of police during a gunfight. This example is somewhat unusual. It occurred in California, which routinely infringes on Second Amendment rights. In Fresno, California, at about 5:30 p.m. on 24 March, 2020, near the area of Belmont and Valeria, officers noticed a 2006 Nissan which was speeding. They attempted to pull over the car. Instead of pulling over, the car accelerated.  Only a few blocks south, near Valeria and Grant, the car crashed.  Inside the car was a driver and one passenger. The driver exited. He was armed. From After the crash,...
  • Gov. Cuomo Refuses To Accept Help From Gun Manufacturer Who Wants To Help With Medical Supplies

    You would think that in times of emergency, political leaders would put their ideology aside and accept help from whomever offered it. But that doesn’t appear to be the case regarding Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York. His state has become the coronavirus epicenter in the United States and he, like other elected leaders in New York, has been pleading for medical supplies — especially ‘PPE’ (personal protective equipment) and ventilators for the critically ill. Well, one company idled by Cuomo’s coronavirus executive order to shut down because it isn’t considered “essential” has offered to make these items for...

    FBI figures released Wednesday show March 2020 shattered the single month record for the number of National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) checks conducted in one month. FBI numbers account for 3,740,688 background checks last month, shattering the record of 3,314,594, set in December 2015; the only other time NICS checks crossed the three million threshold for a single month. Moreover, the number of checks conducted in March 2020 represent a nearly 30 percent increase over the number conducted in March 2019, and that period witnessed the second highest number of checks of any March in history up to...

    A Virginia store clerk heard a crash that sounded like a car had crashed into the place at 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. He grabbed a gun and shot at three masked men he found stealing merchandise and cash from the shop. When it was over, the clerk was the one in handcuffs. He now sits in jail on no bail, charged with crimes for which he could be locked up for 20 years. Those charges include: "Malicious Wounding, Reckless Handling of a Firearm and Violation of a Protective Order." Police say they'll get around to charging the robbers later. What's...

    The man who police say fired multiple shots at a vehicle during a dispute Saturday outside a Johnstown Sheetz store did not have a concealed carry permit, authorities said. Guillermo Diaz Alvarez, 56, allegedly fired into a Nissan Altima driven by William Sauro, 43, at the Sheetz on Broad Street. According to a criminal complaint, Sauro reportedly told city police that he spotted Alvarez walking through the parking lot "coughing and not covering." A confrontation followed, with Sauro striking Alvarez with his vehicle and Alvarez pulling a .45-caliber handgun from his waistband and firing multiple times, the complaint said.

  • LA County sheriff abandons effort to close gun stores

    Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who was sued by gun-rights groups after trying to shut down firearms dealers in the wake of coronavirus concerns, is abandoning the effort. The sheriff said Monday he's heeding a federal Department of Homeland Security advisory issued on Saturday that listed gun and ammunition dealers as “essential critical infrastructure workers." Villanueva called the non-binding memo “persuasive" and announced that his department won't order or recommend closing businesses that sell or repair firearms or sell ammunition in the nation's most populous county.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to remove Sheriff Alex Villanueva as head of the county's emergency operations. On Monday, Villanueva came out and blasted the vote. "If you're asking the public to stay home, cooperate with authorities, the same applies to the Board of Supervisors," the sheriff said. "They need to remain focused on this united front against the spread of the coronavirus so that together we can save lives." The move is based on a report on the communications efforts after the 2018 Woolsey Fire and comes as more cases of...

    When Winchester produced its famous 1873 lever-action rifles and carbines, Colt wasted no time in chambering its single-action Army revolver in Winchester’s calibers from .44-40 down to .32-20. There are times when the quick handling and easy portability of a handgun is of paramount importance for self defense, but when faced with dire threats cowboys knew it was much better to have a repeating rifle. A handgun and longarm in the same caliber was a winner on the American frontier. From a self-defense standpoint, today’s shooters can find a practical, cost-effective, modern parallel to the 19th century Colt/Winchester pairing in...
  • Update: Handgun or Pistol Against Bear Attack: 93 cases, 97% Effective

    The criteria for inclusion in this study is a pistol had to be fired to defend against a bear or bears. If a handgun was not fired, the incident was not included. If the use of the handgun stopped the attack, it was a success whether the bear was killed immediately, or left the scene, as long as it stopped attacking. All methods of defense against bears have similar problems of access. A failure to use a handgun or bear spray in a pack, or a rifle slung over the shoulder without a round in the chamber, should not be...
