    On September 5 gun control activist David Hogg suggested AR-15s cannot be used for self-defense because they shoot further than handguns. He made this suggestion via a tweet which he sent in response Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony that AR-15s and other semiautomatic rifles are used for “self-defense.” Kavanaugh’s full statement was that “handguns and semi-automatic rifles are weapons used for hunting and for self-defense.” But Hogg isolated the words “self-defense” and tried to make a point: David Hogg ✔ @davidhogg111 The effective range of an AR-15 is 1600 feet for comparison your typical handgun is 75 feet if...

    TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) - An argument on Facebook over politics led to the shooting of a man in Tampa on Monday.

When he arrived to Stephens home, Sebring honked his horn and waited by his truck for the victim to leave his home. Stephens left the home and immediately sprinted towards Sebring,...

    A dispute over politics on Facebook went from virtual to physical this week when one man shot another in the thigh and buttocks, officials said.

Sebring is a registered Democrat, the report said, while Stephens, a former felon, has no party affiliation, the report said, citing corrections records.

    At one time back in the day, inside most police cars were equipped with an M-870 shotgun. Then theres an odd ball patrolman with his AR-15 with .223 caliber. Which patrolman has the advantage? The logic behind the usage of an AR stems from situations where a firearm needed for greater range than a shotgun. So the debate begins, shotgun folks talk about having the knock down power to stop the fight with its 00 buck. ARs with its high velocity and more firepower in terms of 20 rounds 30 rounds magazine capacity. Using either firearm we can make...

    Gun sales have remained strong during the Trump era. Through the end of May, 2018 is trending to be the second highest year on record. The NICS checks through May of 2018 are 97% of those of 2016. Political writers and gun industry writers, and those who are both, have speculated that politics have been the major driver of guns sales for the last decade. The latest Rassmussen poll shows evidence of a deeper reason people would fear to be disarmed. From rasmussenreports.com: Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say its likely that the United States will experience...

    On May 15, 2018, the Boulder, Colorado, city government passed a gun and magazine ban unanimously. The ban is likely illegal. It was immediately challenged in a lawsuit. On 19 June, 2018, the Boulder city government doubled down on the ban, adding more restrictions, and an exemption for competitive shooters who travel through the city. From the dailycamera.com: Five amendments were proposed. On an 8-1 vote, council passed three: Removing an exemption for 30-round handgun magazines that are legal under Colorado law; allowing competitive shooters to travel through Boulder with assault weapons; and clarifying the language so that any...

    Came across this video out on Facebook from Thunder Ranch of how to reload and use the bolt release. The explanation is very simple, Clint Smith of Thunder Ranch explains the relationship between God & Eugene Stoner. While most of us know how to reload an AR-15, there is a bit of a polarized perspectives on how to push the bolt release. There are some groups saying that you could lose fine motor skills. Some believe you will while others say it is a myth and training overcomes that myth. Clint is on a totally different level believes that God...

    We can all agree that AR’s are not only reliable but are great at short ranges from 0 to 300 yards. But what if you want to reach out further to 400 yard or 1000 yards? For the larger cartridge would the AR be able to deliver the same punch as its cousin the .308 or 6.5 Creedmoor? Before making the decision to go with an AR10 or AR15, lets take a look at the comparisons.AR-10 The AR10 rifle is an air-cooled lightweight rifle that is gas operated and comes with the 7.62mm (.308) barrel. uses the standardized 7.62x51mm loads...

    echnology continues to advance at an unprecedented rate, and the technology of weaponry is no different. The science fiction of ten or twenty years ago is now becoming a reality. Killer robots are on the rise. And no, Im not joking (as you will see below). There has been a loud debate in recent months over citizens rights to own AR-15s. Gun rights advocates are strongly in favor of citizens having the right to own AR-15s and so am I. The government-backed anti-gun groups are against this right for obvious reasons. However, to compensate for rapidly evolving technology, citizens will...

    Well, this is no shocker. Bolstered by the Supreme Courts inaction on answering the question concerning the constitutionality of assault weapons bans, slices of Blue America have taken it to its limitsand by limits I mean passing ordinances that are totally unconstitutional. In Deerfield, Illinois, the village has banned the ownership of AR-15 rifles and other firearms liberals find scary. Yet, it goes beyond that, because the definition of an assault weapon (yes, I know not a real term) is so broad. Essentially any firearm that uses a detachable magazine that holds more than ten rounds is a so-called assault...

    State police were shocked to find that after banning bump stocks and threatening violators with 5 years in prison, not a single resident has complied. The state of New Jersey has become the latest to ban bump-stocks for firearms, and despite strict threats to owners who refuse to turn their newly illegal devices over to police, not a single resident has complied with the new law. The legislation banning the popular A-15 accessory, Senate Bill 3477, went into effect immediately after it was signed into law by Gov. Chris Christie in January, and it gave residents 90 days to voluntarily...

    It must be nice walking through life believing that the paradise the founders built here in North America is the natural state of man, and that we can therefore forgo the difficult and dangerous tasks associated with defending it. But some of us dont have the luxury of illusions. We know that peace and civilization are not the natural state of man, and that the black swan events that we have somehow convinced ourselves could never happen do happen with startling regularity. And this is why you should buy guns and ammunition. Specifically, you should own, at a minimum, a...

    With the bad press the AR-15 is getting lately, even from so-called Second Amendment advocates, it would seem that the future of the Swiss Army Knife of rifles is grim. Theyre not hunting rifles, they say. They were only ever designed to hunt two-legged targets, and thats all they can ever do! They are ASSAULT WEAPONS.

    The man who was seen earlier this week toting an AR-15 through the streets of Abington Township has been involuntarily committed for a mental health evaluation not for openly carrying the long gun but for making concerning comments to friends, police said Friday. The man, who has only been identified as an adult resident of the Montgomery County township and a current or former Penn State student, was taken in for an evaluation mid-morning Thursday after friends reached out to police via social media, authorities said. The mans AR-15 was confiscated as well. This case illustrates the very complex...
