    Maverick Arms has discovered that a small number of Maverick Hunter™ Over/Under 12-gauge shotguns (SKU 75445) have been marked incorrectly. The chamber marking indicates that these shotguns are chambered for 3 ½” shells, however, the chambers are manufactured for 2 ¾” and 3” shells. Snip Each Maverick Hunter™ shotgun is marked with a chamber designation on the right side of the barrel, just below the safety warning. If your shotgun marking reads “12 Ga 3 ½” Maverick Hunter” then your shotgun IS affected by this recall. Discontinue use of this shotgun and immediately follow the instructions provided below.

    Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain says the Trump administration needs to explain how four U.S. soldiers were killed in Niger. Bryan Black, Jeremiah Johnson, Dustin Wright, and La David Johnson were told not to expect enemy contact on that mission to meet with community leaders two weeks ago. It will take an investigation to determine if any warning signs were missed, but Sen. McCain says the administration is not being upfront and he's demanding more information about the attack. In a pre-mission briefing they were told "no enemy contact expected," but the group, about 40 in all, were...

    In recent years the government has gone to extremes to bully everyday Americans and whistleblowers from speaking out against corruption. From the targeting of Tea Party groups and conservative donors to the lawsuits against poverty nuns over birth control the government has harassed and abused its citizenry. In June investigative journalist James O’Keefe was detained by U.S. customs agents after arriving at the airport in Nassau, Bahamas en route to Miami. The agents told him then he was being detained for crossing back and forth across the US-Mexico border in Texas dressed like Osama bin Laden. Customs agents targeted O’Keffe...

    Barack Obama, to hear his advisers tell it, has finally found The One he has been looking for: John McCain. “We have been looking literally for years for someone we can cut deals with, and finally someone has stepped up,” a White House official said. West Wing aides say they now talk with McCain roughly every other day. McCain, to hear fellow Republicans tell it, has finally found The Two he has needed to make such conversations worth the bother: Sen. Chuck Schumer, a Democrat who can actually get things done in the Senate, and Denis McDonough, a White House...

    WASHINGTON | As fellow Republicans slipped into a room in the Capitol for a private meeting, Arizona Sen. John McCain held court outside, surrounded by a flock of reporters. ” What about you, jerk?” he teased Kasie Hunt of NBC News, who gave it back: ” Do you take offense to the term ’Old Bull?’?” McCain’s eyes lit up and he laughed. ” Is that Sen. McCain? Oooooh,” Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., who was passing by, whispered in faux awe. The 76-year-old, twice-failed presidential candidate is back in front, reprising his role as a bipartisan dealmaker, occasional irritant to his...

    Senator Ted Cruz of Texas the real “Maverick” spoke the hard core truth the other day by saying—‘I don’t trust Republicans.’ He is spot on and the old corrupt guard from both parties must be chucked now this coming 2014 election. There are only a few true blooded Republicans we should trust and they are Senators Ted Cruz and Trey Gowdy. America is in a War. A War bought on by banksters, corrupt politicians, and communists within our own government. Do not trust any “Progressives” regardless of party affiliation. All these corrupt individuals care about is getting elected and re-elected....

    John McCain, the media’s favorite “maverick” – unless he’s actively running for something – has just introduced a bill in congress called the Television Consumer Freedom Act of 2013. Normally, my iron clad rule of thumb is to take any side this guy is against but I have to admit he may have a point here. The bill would allow consumers to buy only the cable channels they want “a la carte” and not have 500 others jammed down their throats. Does anyone recall the original promise of cable TV? More than 30 years ago we asked, “why should we...

    The Hill ^ | May 16, 2012 | Alexander Bolton
    Sen. John McCain is talking with Democrats about a joint effort to require outside groups that have spent millions of dollars on this year’s elections to disclose their donors. McCain (R-Ariz.), once Congress’s leading champion of campaign finance reform, has kept a low profile on the issue in recent years. He raised the ire of many Republicans a decade ago for pushing comprehensive reform, and many Republicans still held it against him during his 2008 presidential campaign.

    Follow the bouncing ball. Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum has now bounced to a 12-point lead over Mitt Romney in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters finds Santorum with 39% support to the former Massachusetts governor’s 27%. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich follows from a distance with 15% of the vote, and Texas Congressman Ron Paul runs last with 10%. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Just over a week...

    Raytheon Restarts Production of Laser-Guided Maverick for US Air Force, Navy (Source: Raytheon Company; issued February 13, 2012) SINGAPORE --- After more than two decades, Raytheon Company has formally restarted production of the laser-guided Maverick missile, with the first weapon expected to be delivered to the U.S. Air Force in late 2012. Production began following a rigorous U.S. Air Force and Navy Developmental Testing/Operational Testing program that culminated in a production contract in late 2011.

I left the Cabinet Room when the meeting was over thinking the Republican presidential ticket was in trouble.”</p>

    ISLAMABAD: Former US presidential candidate and senior Republican Senator John McCain is arriving today in the capital as part of ongoing efforts by the US and Pakistan to repair ties damaged by the Abbottabad raid on May 2. McCain, 75, is also a senior member of the US Senate’s Arms Services Committee, which has the power to approve or deny military assistance to Pakistan. He is the most senior US figure to visit Islamabad since Washington withheld $800 million in military assistance to Pakistan last month.

    GILBERT - Arizona Sen. John McCain held a town hall in Gilbert this morning and the economy took center stage. The town hall was focused on the nations' economic troubles and McCain said the on-going financial problems would be much greater had Congress not passed a bill to keep the country from defaulting on its debt. McCain said he is very concerned with the recent S&P downgrade of the United States' credit rating and views it as a wake-up call to the nation. "It will cost more to borrow money and it is a very serious situation," McCain said. McCain...

    An old friend came back to town last week and it was good to see him again after all these years. Because we really needed him, now more than ever. John McCain -- the old straight-talking, tough truth-telling John McCain -- stood up on the floor of the U.S. Senate and picked up just where he'd left off some four years ago: Telling it like it really is. Never mind that he was ticking off fellow conservative Republicans. Even the ones who knew in their hearts he was right. For months, Republican leaders had allowed themselves to be led by...

    Arizona Sen. John McCain’s floor speech on Wednesday denouncing the negotiating tactics of some tea party-aligned members of Congress raises the question as to whether the famed maverick is back to his old tricks. (snip) McCain’s comments (and the controversy they caused) raise an intriguing question: Has McCain the straight-talking maverick been reborn?(snip) The “McCain as maverick” meme was cemented as he emerged as one of the few Republicans during the first part of the last decade to speak up in opposition to Bush and his own party in Washington. McCain’s most notable apostasy during that time was his successful...

    National Review ^ | 05/18/2011 | Andrew McCarthy
    Shortly after Osama bin Laden met his demise at the hands of U.S. special forces, Michael Mukasey opined in the pages of the Wall Street Journal that harsh interrogation tactics had been key to identifying a courier, which, in turn, led to locating bin Laden’s compound. Such an assessment, from a highly respected former attorney general, was bound to be influential. Indeed, the CIA’s enhanced-interrogation program, used on a select few high-level al-Qaeda detainees following the 9/11 attacks, had figured prominently in Mukasey’s confirmation hearings. He had, at the behest of Congress, thoroughly reviewed the program upon taking the reins...

    The politician who once best exemplified the idea of a "maverick" independent has shifted so far to the right that he is now tied for the title of the Senate's most conservative member, according to National Journal's 2010 vote ratings. According to a comprehensive examination of 96 Senate votes taken in 2010, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., along with seven of his colleagues, voted most often on the conservative side. His 89.7 composite conservative score ties him with stalwarts like Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and gives him a more conservative score than Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. (snip)...
