  • Bill introduced to remove silencers from the NFA

    examiner ^ | October 23, 2015 | Mike Searson
    On Thursday, October 22, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) introduced H.R. 3799, the Hearing Protection Act (HPA) along with 10 co-sponsors, including Representatives Frank Guinta (R-NH), John Carter (R-TX), Mike Kelly (R-PA), Chris Collins (R-NY), Glenn Thompson (R-PA), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Mia Love (R-UT), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), and Chris Stewart (R-UT). The HPA would remove silencers from regulation under the National Firearms Act (NFA), leaving them to be treated as ordinary firearms subject to the usual NICS check and Form 4473 for dealer sales. Currently, silencers are subject to the NFA process with “CLEO sign-off,” a 4 to...

    A 60-second video featuring various Christians reciting the Lord's Prayer was rejected by Digital Cinema Media (DCM). The short advertisement was produced by the Church of England and intended for airing in front of the new Star Wars movie as part of the Church's campaign to broadcast religious values to a broader audience. DCM spokesman Christopher Kirk cited "a clash of values" as the reason for rejecting the ad. "Anyone who has been following trends in the film industry cannot fail to note that the message contained in this prayer is at odds with the major themes of the entertainment...

    As of November 23, there had been 2703 shootings which resulted in 440 deaths year-to date in heavily gun-controlled Chicago. 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.

    Handgun Ammunition Stopping Power Update Written by Evan Marshall Handgun Ammunition Stopping Power UpdateBy Evan MarshallThe ability to stop a fight with a handgun bullet is often a difficult goal to achieve. However, the ability to select ammunition designed to protect both officers and citizens is too critical a task to rely on artificial test mediums in sterile lab environments. Such test mediums have value, but unlike the human body, they are a homogeneous substance that offers the same ballistic resistance throughout. Humans, however, offer varying levels of resistance and as such a homogeneous test medium cannot offer us the...

    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...

    With a world on edge after the coordinated terror attacks in Paris, and as criticism grows louder of the Obama administration’s handling of adversaries such as Iran and Syria, tough talk and defiance have become strong currencies in the presidential race. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson’s mild-mannered, soft-spoken demeanor – which helped endear him to many voters in the first place – now appears to be working against him, while Sen. Ted Cruz’s tell-it-like-it-is, in-your-face style is now raising his stock. In the crucial state of Iowa, which holds closely-watched caucuses, the event in Paris on Nov. 13 changed many conservatives’...

Hillary Clinton has recently gone on record as a big supporter of these programs, whether they be optional or… not so optional, like in Australia. If you had any doubt about the effectiveness of such plans, the folks in Greensboro, North Carolina were out to prove you wrong this month.

From Brietbart.com: Carrying a weapon is not always feasible or appropriate. However, given the increased tensions that are the result of continued, escalating terrorism around the world, more legitimately armed individuals on the streets is a positive outcome. Each permit holder must make the decision to carry or not carry. I will carry more often than I have in the past, and I am sure other concealed permit holders will do the same.

The Republican presidential candidate believes that the president is tearing at the fabric of society by undermining the freedom of religion. And he's not willing to let that happen. "It is the first right protected in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. It is the foundation of everything else in America. If you can’t worship God, all other liberties are taken away." Although many people seem to believe that the freedom of speech...

This time the mainstream “news” organizations are attempting to assert that the NRA is a bunch of radicals that is so “gun crazy” that they even support terrorists buying guns. The Daily News made that absurd claim earlier in the week, and the network of Dan Rather is doing so today. Reality, of course, is something quite different. The National Rifle Association is both a firearms training organization and a civil rights group, and opposes long-running Democrat attempts to...

The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years. If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters. ...

It is important to realize that the best security practices, people, and technology governments have to offer could not thwart the ISIS attacks in Paris. Nor will these practices, institutions, and technologies thwart the next attack.

    When 30 carbine was introduced during WW2, many called it inadequate. It became massively popular, and not just with the rear echelon troops. Far from the sheer power of the 30-06, it was more useful to a radio operator, a cook, or a typist. Likewise, 22WMR is nowhere near the power of 223Rem (already deemed inadequate by many), yet its ballistic cousins 5.7x28 and 4.6x30 are well regarded for certain niche uses. Until recently, 22WMR was mostly used in hunting guns, the occasional exception like Grendel carbine aside. But consider it in the Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) format: lightweight, accurate,...

Century Arms introduced the C39v2, 7.62x39mm semiautomatic rifle in 2014, and it continues to exceed our expectations. After receiving quite a bit of user feedback from the original C39, Century Arms made some intelligent changes and upgrades, resulting in the C39v2, which has set it apart from other AKs on the market. Even AK purists are having a hard time finding fault with their latest C39 variant. While elegant isn't a term usually associated with an AK-47, the C39v2 earns...

    The NRA -- and their gun-loving Republican cohorts -- are refusing once more to stop terrorists intent on getting armed in the U.S.A. A legal loophole allows suspected terrorists on the government's no-fly list to legally buy guns, but a bill to fix that will likely wither on the vine. The federal Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act, even in the wake of last week’s terrorist killing of 129 people in Paris, remains a long shot due to its rabid pro-gun opponents.

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump returned to the great state of Texas on Saturday during his quest to “Make America Great Again.” As this video shows, he spoke for over an hour, which is his new plan of action. His campaign has transformed into a series of long-winded monologues that feel like he’s trying to convince himself to stay in the race. Perhaps Trump has realized that he’d take a significant pay cut as president, which isn’t as much of a joke as reality. To Trump, money is the ultimate motivator, and (as he enjoys reminding us) he’s poured a...

    Last weekend I took my 9-year-old on a mother-daughter date to Fashion Place Mall. As we sat in the crowded food court enjoying an ice cream, two white men in their early 20s walked by our table, each wearing jeans, a tucked-in T-shirts and a prominently displayed gun in its holster. The men walked slowly and seemed to enjoy the fact that people in the food court were visibly alarmed by their conspicuous exhibition of weapons. My immediate response was fear for my and my daughter's lives. We have all seen the tragedies in the news. We've heard how these...
  • Paris, jihad and war: Can we get serious?

    Can we get serious?  Because our enemies are dead serious. I grieve for Paris, and for the families who lost loved ones.  I grieve for those who are frightened.  The two largest terror attacks against civilians in the West in this century both took place in cities boasting a Statue of Liberty.  I don’t think that was missed by the Islamic jihadists who perpetrated the slaughter in Paris. The plaque beneath the lady sitting in New York harbor reads: Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send...

    During CNN’s November 13 coverage–just hours after the heinous terror attacks on Paris had taken place–CNN law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes said European countries have long pretended that gun control can keep them safe, but it cannot. In fact, Fuentes alluded to how the gun control culture offers a large number of “soft targets” to “gangsters and terrorists” who have no problem getting the guns that law-abiding citizens are forbidden to own.Fuentes said, “Many of the European countries have been in denial that their strict gun control laws are going to keep guns out of the hands of bad guys,...

    Donald Trump, speaking at a rally on Saturday in Beaumont, Texas, suggested that fewer people would have been killed had more civilians been armed. "When you look at Paris, toughest gun laws in the world, nobody had guns but the bad guys," he said. "Nobody had guns. And they were just shooting them one by one, and then they broke in and had a big shootout and ultimately killed the terrorists. And I will tell you what--you can say what you want, if they had guns, if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry, it would have...

    BEAUMONT, Tex. -- Donald Trump says the tough gun control laws in Paris contributed to the high death toll during a series of terrorist attacks on Friday. The attacks, he added, also reveal the danger in allowing Syrian refugees into the country. "You can say what you want, but if they had guns -- if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry -- it would have been a much, much different situation," Trump said to cheers during a political rally at an arena in southeast Texas on Saturday afternoon. "I hear it all the time, you know....

    Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was called out on French television for a tweet he sent about the deadly terrorist attack in Paris on Friday. The former speaker and presidential candidate had speculated in a tweet that citizens with concealed carry permits for guns would have stopped the deadly shooting at a Paris concert hall. Gingrich's tweet prompted France 24's Mark Owen to say he found capitalizing on crises to advance a political agenda to be shameful. "Newt Gingrich, shame on you," Owen said. "So he's using this atrocity to make his point that people should be able...

    The growing body count as of this writing is 120 slaughtered in the Bataclan. We'll never know how much that body count could have been reduced if the foolish French allowed their citizens to go armed. Their imprudent gun control laws contributed to unnecessary carnage. Once again, when seconds counted, the police were just too many minutes away.

    We all saw what happened last night in Paris and Ed was covering the updates as they came in. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what was happening as soon as the news broke and for once I didn’t see too many people on social media urging everyone not to jump to conclusions. We knew what it was and who – in general terms – was responsible for it. But that clearly wasn’t going to stop one particular group here in the United States from trying to capitalize on it almost immediately. The Michael Bloomberg organized anti-gun...

    Obama proclaims: 'We are not at war with Islam' By Jim Acosta and Kevin Liptak, CNN Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama, speaking at his summit on countering violent extremism Wednesday, sought to strike a balance between appealing for more acceptance of Muslim-Americans while emphasizing the need to remain vigilant against radicals who could turn violent. "We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam," Obama said during his remarks, adding later that Muslim leaders "need to do more to discredit the notion that our nations are determined to suppress Islam." Obama went to...

    A gang culture of impunity and stricter gun control has led to off-duty police officers being killed for their weapons, motorbikes and even mobile phones.Not even the police are safe in Venezuela. In a country which saw 24,000 murders recorded in 2013 and whose capital city Caracas was runner-up for murder capital of the world, 252 security officers have been killed in the country from January until October this year, in most cases simply because they were carrying something valuable -a gun. [..]When President Maduro launched a disarmament plan in 2014, and security forces were also ordered to destroy weapons...
