    Electricity supports not just our comfort but also the necessities of life. Without electricity, America could not come close to supporting its current population. Electricity and its benefits has been with us for so long that we tend to take it for granted. That is a mistake. What if the grid were to go down nationally for a week, for months? Imagine what life would be like. The economic damage would be incalculable and in more places than I care to think the social fabric could literally be rent apart. Commonly discussed concerns about the safety of our electrical grid...

    SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — The former head of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission believes the attack on a PG&E substation in South San Jose last spring was not an act of vandalism, but instead a terrorist attack. In April of last year, someone shot numerous rounds that damaged equipment at the Metcalf Road substation and also severed underground fiber optic cables nearby. In an interview Wednesday in the Wall Street Journal, former FERC chief Jon Wellinghoff called the attack ”the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred.” Wellinghoff told the newspaper he’s going...

    I started shooting at age five. By the time I turned 12, my parents gave me an NRA Life Membership. I’ve studied, written and taught about firearms law and the Bill of Rights since the 1960s, helping to enact concealed-carry laws in states across the country and authoring numerous other pieces of pro-firearms legislation. I’m a competitive shooter who’s hunted on five continents, and I founded a 150-acre shooting park in my home state of Illinois. All told, I’ve written more than 1,700 articles for firearms publications over the last four decades, as well as hosting and producing several firearms...

    On November 5th Breitbart News reported that Metcalf used his G&A column to argue that all constitutional rights have and need regulation, including 2nd Amendment rights. The outcry against Metcalf was immediate and his firing swift. On November 7th Breitbart News reported that Metcalf had been fired by G&A. According to NYT, Metcalf's life changed completely thereafter – his television show was ended, "gun companies... stopped flying him around the world," and they've also stopped sending him samples of the newest guns to review.
  • Guns & Ammo Supports Gun Control

    Technical Editor Dick Metcalf [above] penned the editorial for the December issue. Metcalf, a writer whose technical knowledge (or lack thereof) has earned him brickbats before, bases his editorial on a distinction between “infringement” and “regulation.” “I bring this up,” Metcalf writes, “because way too many gun owners still believe that any regulation of the right to keep and bear arms is an infringement. The fact is that all Constitutional rights are regulated, always have been, and need to be.” That, dear reader, is a major WTF moment. One of many . . . Metcalf’s dietribe [sic] turns to the...

    The top editor of Guns & Ammo became the second employee of the venerable firearms magazine to lose his job after a column advocating gun control backfired, prompting rifle-toting readers to unload on the publication. In a statement posted Wednesday on the InterMedia Outdoors-owned magazine’s homepage, Jim Bequette apologized to “each and every reader” of the magazine for Dick Metcalf’s column that appeared in its December issue, which generated “unprecedented” controversy and left readers “hopping mad” in regards to the magazine’s commitment to the Second Amendment. ********** In his column entitled “Let’s Talk Limits: Do certain firearm regulations really constitute...

    SEATTLE (AP) - Former Rep. Jack Metcalf, who was a strong advocate for the environment and veterans in Congress until he stepped down to honor a defunct term limit law, died Thursday. He was 79. Metcalf died at an Alzheimer's care facility in Oak Harbor, said the Rev. Matt Chambers, his family pastor. He was surrounded by relatives in his final moments, said his former aide, state Rep. Chris Strow, R-Clinton. The longtime state lawmaker was elected to the U.S. House in 1994 as part of the first Republican majority in 40 years. But some of his stances were unusual...

    NEWPORT, Ky.

When the woman and her husband, Mack Wayne Metcalf, won the jackpot, they told lottery officials they were going their separate ways to fulfill their dreams. Merida planned to quit her job making corrugated boxes and buy...

    CPI News Exclusive: The Truth Behind WorldNetDaily and Geoff MetcalfA few weeks ago, many loyal readers and listeners of Geoff Metcalf were shocked to find his column and radio show removed from WorldNetDaily. This has brought about numerous theories and rumors, as well as much criticism from Metcalf's fans. A correspondent for CPI News contacted both Joseph Farah and Geoff Metcalf in two exclusive interviews - and discovered the truth of what happened, despite other claims. A little over two years ago, WorldNetDaily launched a brand new service: TalkNetDaily. The idea was to have talk show hosts from around America...
