    Gays Against Guns will crash a gun show in Pennsylvania this weekend for the second time in less than a month as the gun control advocacy group experiments with new forms of protest in its second year of existence. The group, founded in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting last year, will hold a demonstration outside the Split Rock Gun Show scheduled for Saturday in Lake Harmony, Pennsylvania. Some protesters will wear a white veil and carry photos of local victims of gun violence, while others will hand out informational fliers containing statistics about gun-related deaths. “We are...

    A gun show in Wichita, Kansas, showed the disparity in Second Amendment supporters to those who seek a disarmed population.  On the Saturday morning of 16th  July, there were over 20 *vendors* who had rented tables for every protester.  There were over a hundred vendors and five, as pictured above, protesters.  From kake.com: WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Inside Century II Expo Hall today was a gun and knife show with more than 100 vendors selling firearms, knives and accessories. Outside Century II, the Wichita Coalition Against Gun Violence held a vigil for those who have lost their lives in...

    If you’re a leftist who believes other leftists, it’s probable you think guns (even fully automatic ones) can easily be purchased without a background check. You hold this notion for a simple reason: your leftist leaders in political circles reaching as high as the White House, say such silly things as “Guns are easier to buy than books.” A myth which is as true as receiving a college scholarship from the tooth fairy. To prove how wrong leftists are about guns, we took a hidden camera to gun shows and gun dealers. We tried weaseling through the “gun show loophole”...

Last year, more than half a million people attended Crossroads events, the newspaper reported. In addition to founding Crossroads with his wife in 1975, Templeton is also the current president of the National Association...

    I attended the first gun show of the season in Yuma.  I paid $60 to rent a table and give away free .22 ammunition.  I have more than I will likely shoot in my lifetime, purchased when the prices were much lower.I could sell it, but the Bible says that generosity is a virtue.  I am curious about human nature. and the lingering lack of .22 on store shelves prompted me to give away some bulk Remington golden bullets.   I used the event to promote the blog where I do most of my writing, Gun Watch. I gave away...

    This christian school was raffling off a number of guns and other prizes.  It was pleasant to see a school that was not caught up in the government enforced anti-second amendment indoctrination that has been common since the Clinton regime. While the top two prizes were either a vacation or a diamond ring, six of the 12 prizes were firearms, from a Tikka T3 in 300WSM to a Henry .22.   I bought a ticket on general principles, because I support independent schools and because rewarding good behavior brings more of it. This sort of cultural activity is exactly why...

    As I observed the scarcity of .22 ammunition over the last year, and considered the largess that I had accumulated over the previous decades, I considered what to do with it.   I had more .22 ammunition than I would likely shoot over the course of my remaining life.   I shoot less and write more these days. I could sell it.  Prices are high.  But, my church has reminded me that generosity is a virtue.  I decided to give some of it away.   The problem is that people do not value what they get for free.   I wasn't willing to...

    Girl Scouts at Gun Show It was nice to see these enterprising girl scouts at the local gun show in Yuma, Arizona.   They were quite busy, and sold a lot of product.  Their table was next the the AZCDL table where I was busy giving away free .22 ammunition.  A good time was had by all. People at gun shows tend to be a standard deviation more responsible than the average American, who tends to outclass the world population in responsibility by a good bit.   Those who attend gun shows are very responsible and polite people, more educated than...

     Travis County, Texas, the home of the State Capitol, Austin, is one of the most "progressive" areas of the state.  The county commissioners have shown that they have no respect for constitutional rights, and would like to ban gun shows in the county if they could.   They attempted to use contract law to weasel around the limitations placed on them by federal and state law.  But, they have been a bit conflicted, because to do so would significantly reduce revenues to the County.   Their politically correct pandering has had a result, whether they desire it or not.  It has...

    That lousy groundhog has doomed us all. As much as I'd love to write about the top groundhog-hunting techniques, the hunting pressure would just force the meteorological marmot underground and doom us to an even longer, colder winter. Even if you wanted to brave the cold and the snow to get in the woods this week, there were days when it was downright dangerous. After weeks like this, I don't need to tell you it's been a harsh winter. That's bad news for the area's outdoors enthusiasts, but great news for the folks behind the Great American Outdoor Show, which...

    I continuously see claims that "we must close the gunshow loophole" in the MSM. But on FR most people seem to assume there is no such loophole. I've tried to research exactly what this loophole is supposed to be, but one side seems to take its existence as self-evident and therefore needing no definition, and the other as an equally obvious negative. I would really appreciate an explanation of what this loophole is supposed to be, and perhaps of why it isn't one.

    South Central LA Tea Party Founder Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson and supporters along with the NRA and concerned citizens showed up in force to a recent Glendale City Council hearing on banning gun shows. Countless Second Amendment advocates spoke eloquently and factually about how banning gun shows does nothing to make communities safer. Defying logic and common sense the City Council and mayor voted 3-2 to ban future gun shows. They also made it a crime to possess legally purchased firearms on city property. The council meeting was packed and Second Amendment supporters outnumbered the gun grabbers at least...

    "You have any .22?," I asked a dealer pricing boxes of ammunition at his table. "Nope," he answered. "There's none in here." He was right. Nothing. Not at any table. I grabbed a few boxes of overpriced 9mm for the Glock and knew that was all I was taking home.

    Long Lines at Tucson Gun Show, by LennyJoe LennyJoe posted this report: Just wanted to pass on some views on what I seen this weekend at the Tucson gun show I went to on Saturday. First off, it was a good thing that we purchased tickets online. When we got there, about 1.5 hours before the show opened, there were 2 lines. The line we were in, tickets on hand, had about 150 people ahead of us. The second line, ticket purchasers grew as time went on and when they finally started selling tickets around 0800, I would estimate about...

    Long Lines into and out of Arizona Gun Show, 2013 Gun shows are centers of resistance to the nanny state. As resistance to the growing, all pervasive regulations and vague, impossible to decipher federal laws, grows in the heartland of America, gun shows offer a place where freedom is still practiced, and limits to State power are recognized. At most gun shows, if you are not a gun dealer, you are allowed to sell your personal firearm to another person without special permission from the nanny state. The stranglehold on political speech by the MSM is not so tight,...
