  • Virginia College Student Arrested for Acquiring & Shooting Rifle at Range

    19-year-old student, Yonsong Zhao, came to the United States from China on a student visa.  As of January, 2018, he had been in the country for seven months. As with many people, especially young men, he likes guns. In China, it is nearly impossible to access legal guns. Zhao set about learning what was necessary for him to acquire and legally fire guns in the United States. Given the complexity involved, I am amazed that Zhao appears to have found the various rules, and followed them rigorously.  It is well that he did. The authorities were watching him very...
  • Fashion Magazines Ignoring First Lady

    Vogue magazine, the arbiter of fashion, couldn't get enough of Michelle Obama. The same has not been true of Melania Trump. The New York Post observes: Magazines are showing no love for Melania Trump. The internet was in a tizzy last week when actor James Woods pointed out via Twitter that the first lady hasn’t been a muse for the magazine industry since her husband, President Trump, took office. Woods tweeted: “If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” The tweet, which was accompanied by an old...

    Walmart is removing the sex-obsessed, pro-abortion women’s magazine “Cosmopolitan” from its checkout shelves. The retail chain announced the change this week after considering concerns raised by parents and conservative groups about the content of the magazine, USA Today reports. “While this was primarily a business decision, the concerns raised were heard,” Walmart spokesperson Meggan Kring said. “Cosmpolitan” often displays scantily clad women on its front covers, along with headlines promoting risky sexual behavior and other objectionable content. It also regularly advocates for abortion on demand. Inside its pages, Cosmo has criticized late-term abortion bans and justified eugenic abortions of disabled...
  • No one would accept, in any other national discussion, the level of ignorance seen in the gun debate

    There are two certainties following nearly every mass shooting event: Cable news television will have its programming schedule set for the next 72 hours, and a significant number of gun control advocates will reveal they lack even a basic understanding of the items they wish to regulate. The first certainty is to be expected. After all, if it bleeds it leads. The second certainty is more remarkable. It’s remarkable that so many proponents of stricter regulations appear to be generally ignorant of not just the minutiae of firearms, but also the basics. It’s also remarkable that this ignorance continues unabated,...
  • 3 Irrefutable Truths The Walkout Kids Need To Hear, And Don’t

    03/14/2018 1:13:35 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 29 replies
    It’s time to speak out some hard truths to the children participating in the so-called “student-led” national walkout and the broader “school safety” movement. Let’s call it speaking truth to power, because there are some very powerful forces blocking most of these young people from hearing these truths — the traditional media, Hollywood and the rest of the culture movers, Democratic leaders, most school leaders and the big activist organizations using the children as pawns for their own agenda. First, despite all the hot air from the above groups of people, all Americans agree on a few things. First, students...

    Liberal Fox News commentator Marie Harf insisted on Friday that supporters of the Second Amendment can also question if people need “high magazine clips.” ... “You can be a supporter of the Second Amendment and and also say, ‘maybe we shouldn’t have high magazine clips,’ for example,” she said, seemingly unaware that she just used a non-existent gun term.

    Republicans in the Colorado Senate have introduced a bill to repeal the limits placed on magazine capacity in 2013. Here is the summary of SB18-052: The bill repeals statutory provisions: Prohibiting the possession of certain ammunition magazines; and Requiring each of certain ammunition magazines that are manufactured in Colorado on or after July 1, 2013, to include a permanent stamp or marking indicating that the magazine was manufactured or assembled after July 1, 2013. The magazine limits were heavily contested by the Colorado Sheriffs who sued Governor Hickenlooper over the law.  The lawsuit was eventually dismissed, because no one...

    How does defending sharia law translate into feminist intersectionality? For the Women’s March, it’s a key part of their work. Glamour Magazine is willing to buy into this fake intersectionality. The latest issue, named Linda Sarsour one of its Glamour 2017 Women of the Year. As a co-chair of the Women’s March, Sarsour has been honored by Time Magazine and defended by the New York Times as a target of “right-wing hate.” But no one has pointed out that Sarsour has actually promoted Sharia law as beneficial.

    I would like to see a Trump White House magazine, which is released and available for subscription by the Trump White House. Do not think this sounds like a strange idea, many other countries have such a magazine available for subscription by the executive branch of that nation. I have no doubt that many would subscribe to such a magazine which could be released monthly or quarterly, and include insights from President Trump and VP Pence, as well as photos from the White House and of our leaders. I sent such a request in via the White Houst website https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact#page

Historical images of subjects such as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Muhammad Ali and Lena Horne were not part of the sale. Jet magazine has transformed from print to digital only.

    Genius. Obama lectures Americans on a big gun with a lot of clips in it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDLQOaGwiaoOnce again our president has no idea what he’s talking about. President Obama spoke to reporters Monday about the terrorist attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and said Omar Mateen had a “Glock which had a lot of clips in it.” Obama also said Mateen had an “assault rifle.” According to CNN, the President explained that Mateen acquired his guns via a background check.

Roughly 72% of subscribers live in the Southeast or Southwest... “Our audiences are very different,” said Sid Evans, the former editor-in-chief of Garden & Gun who now edits Southern Living.

    Hey all. Long-time lurker, first time poster. I was wondering if anyone could help me fill a request. I'm looking for back issues of Chronicles magazine, the "paleo-conservative" publication. However, I can't find any issues on amazon, ebay, or any other site. It's a fairly obscure magazine today, although it was much more popular in the 80s and 90s, from what I understand. I know you freepers are a resourceful bunch. I was hoping one of you might have some old issues you don't want anymore that I could have. I subscribed to National Review for a few years, but...

    Hi all, I've got a question regarding buying magazines for a couple of handguns, and due to age, factory magazines (what I prefer, except for my AR and 1911,) are simply not available. I've got a late 80s Taurus PT99 in 9mm & a Star FireStar in .40S&W. The mags in both are getting a bit long in the tooth. Factory magazines are simply no longer an option for either. The most commonly available magazines for both are Meg-Gar or Promag. In the case of the Firestar, it appears that the only choice IS Promag, though I've seen references to...
