    Are you feeling that itch for a Bigger Kick? – Try a 4 gauge Shotgun This is probably cheaper than getting a .950 JDJ rifle. Yeh, this shotgun has a really big kick! Watch this shooter hold on as he fires off this mighty Thor 4 gauge shotgun. If you think shooting the 12 gauge shotgun is nothing, by all means give this 4 gauge a try and feel the blast. Thanks to Youtuber Georghe Bushe for sharing a video which has this ZZ Top looking guy taking a shot with a scary 4 gauge shotgun. Seeing the recoil effects...

    John Hickenlooper wants to be president. He’s one of a whole lot of Democrats who have entered the 2020 presidential race, and at this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if my cat entered the race, the field has gotten so crowded. Hickenlooper is touting his accomplishments on gun control to set himself apart from the pack. Unlike most other candidates, he can cite accomplishments beyond introducing bills that won’t go anywhere. Following the theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado in 2013, he signed several gun control bills into law. What he’s not talking about is something that NBC News of all...

    - The young woman above is almost certainly one of the minority of Americans that believes owning a gun is immoral. A recent Rassmussen poll revealed that 20% of registered voters in the United States believe owning a gun is immoral. From jacksonville.com: Beyond specific issues, the attitudes being voiced by many progressive Democrats seem almost designed specifically to antagonize Midwestern voters. Twenty percent of all voters consider owning a gun immoral, and 20% believe it is immoral to call for limits on government. Eleven percent think eating meat and having children are also immoral. The specific Rassmussen poll...

    A national gun control lobbying organization on Tuesday made Nevada the latest Western state where it is trying to show that gun rights groups including the National Rifle Association are behind a "Second Amendment sanctuary" drive. The Brady advocacy group said it believes gun rights advocates improperly orchestrated resolutions by rural lawmakers and sheriffs who say they won't enforce a new state law requiring background checks on all gun sales, including purchases at gun shows and on the internet. "These Nevada county commissions and sheriffs have gone rogue," Brady President Kris Brown said in a statement saying the officials are...

    Chicago S-T ^ | 18 aor 2019
    Chicago struggles to cope with one of the nation’s largest illegal gun markets because it sits next to states such as Indiana and Missouri that have lax gun laws. Many of the guns that turn up at Chicago crime scenes originally were purchased legally in those states. Now, there is a movement to turn downstate counties into mini-Indianas. Sheriffs in many of those counties say they will refuse to enforce laws designed to reduce gun violence. You can bet that will make it even harder for Chicago to make its streets safer. EDITORIAL In Illinois, 63 counties and municipalities have...

    When it comes to the protectors of a country’s right, there are always two sides that are mostly making themselves known. We have the older, more experienced people that have already gone through a lot, and we also have the hopeful youth that is looking for a chance. . The youth have always been belittled for their ideas because they were “too young.” However, look at Mark Zuckerberg, who was barely 20 when he launched Facebook. Or Nathan Hale, who graduated from college (Yale, of all places) at 18, being put on a secret mission three years later by George...

    There are more than 30 hospital-based violence intervention and prevention programs throughout the country that mainly target high-risk individuals who have already been injured and connect them with resources, but one system’s anti-violence effort stands out. Kaiser Permanente is investing $2 million toward identifying best practices for clinicians to help prevent injuries and death from guns for up to five research projects, a year-old effort co-led by Dr. David Grossman, senior investigator at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute in Seattle. He said the effort to research gun violence has gained considerable momentum over the past year aside from National...

    In a dramatic reversal of numbers, the March 2019 National Instand background Check System (NICS) check numbers are the second highest March on record, only a few percent less than the record breaking numbers in March of 2018.  February numbers had shown a dramatic downturn for NICS checks. The Trump era NICS continue to be at historically high levels, but lower than during the rush to buy guns during the last two years of the Obama administration. These numbers do not translate directly into gun sales. A large part of the numbers are from NICS checks done for carry...

    AP ^ | 04 17 2019 | LISA MARIE PANE
    The deadly attack at Columbine High School in 1999 seemed to usher in a new era of school shootings. Two decades later, polls consistently capture growing fears among American parents that their children face imminent danger whenever they go to school. Those fears have only intensified since attacks at an elementary school in 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut, and last year at a high school in Parkland, Florida. In the aftermath of the Parkland shooting, some research suggests that gun violence is a near-daily experience at schools. Other studies indicate that deaths from school violence have actually declined since 1991. Answers...

    WASHINGTON — Senate Judiciary Committee chair Lindsey Graham told BuzzFeed News he will start crafting legislation next week to expand police powers to preemptively seize firearms from people believed to be a danger to themselves or others. Graham is angling to get bipartisan support for his bill, and has been in discussions with Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal. Neither would outline specifics Thursday beyond saying it will be an original piece of legislation. Graham said work on hammering out the contents of the bill will begin next week.

    Are you very afraid? 3D-printed guns are coming. "Virtually undetectable!" shrieked CNN. "This changes the safety of Americans forever!" shrieked MSNBC. Does it? Six years ago, a company called Defense Distributed posted blueprints for 3D-printed guns on the web. The Obama State Department said that violated the Arms Control Act because allowing foreigners to see them is equivalent to exporting a missile launcher, and that's illegal. Defense Distributed withdrew the blueprints. Gun control advocates were relieved. "We have enough guns in this country already," Massachusetts legislator David Linsky tells me in my new video about 3D-printed guns. But this debate...

    Video shows a hitman trying to kill a woman with a high-powered crossbow hidden inside a box. The shocking surveillance video was released by Canadian police. It shows a man dressed as a delivery driver and holding a large package. But detectives say he was really a hitman and was ringing the home's doorbell to deliver a fatal attack. Moments after, a woman answered the door, the two exchanged words and the man fired the crossbow. Police say inside the cardboard box was a high-powered crossbow holding a razor-sharp big game arrow, designed to bring down and kill elk and...

    HOUSTON, TEXAS — A man fought for his life against not one, not two, but five armed men who broke into his home. This gun owner was prepared for a fight, and utilized his AK-47 to defend his home and his life. Two masked men went into the home where the 20-year-old resident was. At first, he though it was a joke, but quickly realized that these armed men meant business. When they demanded cash, the resident complied. At least, that’s what he wanted them to believe. He said that he was going for what they wanted and reached under...

    The far left New Zealand government has banned many semi-automatic firearms in the media frenzy following the mass murder at the Christchurch  (ironic name!) mosques.  A small number of New Zealanders called for calm and rational deliberation in the rush to pass new legislation. They were ignored in the frenzy to pass restrictions on gun ownership. The New Zealand censor ruled it illegal for New Zealand citizens to read the manifesto of the political terrorist who did the killing. Any discussion of immigration and Islamic terrorism, which were used to justify the killings, were ignored. Instead, the New Zealand...

    It’s just a fact of life that handguns are now permanent legal fixtures in the American landscape. We have to live with that. But the freedom to own a firearm doesn’t mean it has to be free of charge. It doesn’t mean that owners can’t be a tiny bit inconvenienced. And someone’s right to own a gun certainly does not trump the safety rights of the rest of us. This is what the pro-gun people don’t seem to understand. Gun rights advocates in Illinois are in an uproar over legislation that is being debated in the General Assembly. The bill...

    Watching someone shoot a .50 BMG is always exciting. Of course safety should always be adhere to. This also includes having a great backstop. When a .50 projectile skip off the ground, they can take off in any direction. Its a good thing this shooter is on a gun range thats out in the middle of nowhere. This is the case with this shooter on Youtube who is armed with a rifle chambered in the mighty .50 BMG caliber. When he fires a tracer round, the bullet skips off the ground and ends up arcing up into the air with...

The proposal, S.94, was introduced in January by U.S. Sens. Shelley Moore Capito, R-WV and Michael Bennet, D-Colo. The bill, which was reported favorably from the Committee on Environment and Public Works in February, passed the chamber as a whole in a voice vote on April 10 and now goes to the House for...
