    The president and CEO of Levi Strauss & Co., Chip Bergh, has announced that the iconic company, "a pioneer of the American West," will donate more than $1 million to gun-control groups to help end "America's gun violence epidemic," a step the NRA denounced as a "particularly sad episode in the current surge in corporate virtue-signaling." In his announcement, through a commentary in Fortune magazine, CEO Bergh stated that Levi's is "known the world over as a pioneer of the American West and one of the great symbols of American freedom." Nonetheless, "as business leaders with power in the public...

    A lawsuit against federal banking regulators filed last Friday in Washington D.C. may appear at first blush to be a simple case of due process violation but, according to at least one legislator and a former ambassador, documents released in the case actually prove an Obama-era program, long thought to prevent some businesses disfavored by that administration from operating, was doing exactly that. The documents were released as part of the Plaintiffs’ Motion for Summary Judgment in the lawsuit Advance America et al. v. Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. et al. in which three payday lenders allege that federal regulators were...
  • Politico: Nancy Pelosi Says Amnesty, Gun Control Among Top Priorities if Democrats Win

    Pelosi’s next priorities as speaker, she told Politico, would include new gun control laws, and amnesty for illegal aliens: “After that, Pelosi said, Democrats are looking at lowering drug prices and then will try to work with Republicans on a gun background check bill and protecting so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.” The article did not mention impeachment. Some Democrats are running on promises to impeach President Donald Trump — a threat that Pelosi has tried to downplay (successfully, in the case of Politico, which appeared no to ask about the idea). Others, including...

    One tangible connection to the human cost of the Civil War can be found in the Frazier History Museum in Louisville, Ky., in the form of a beautifully engraved Henry repeating rifle, serial number 19. The rifles were highly prized on the battlefield. Confederates described the Henry as "that darn Yankee rifle that they load on Sunday and shoot all week." THE PROGENITOR of the Winchester repeaters, the Henry was a technological marvel in its time. It fired a .44-caliber, self-contained, metallic, rim-fire primed cartridge. The magazine held 15 shots, and one more could be loaded in the chamber, giving...

    At least 17 people, mostly teenagers, were killed and 50 more wounded when a student went on a shooting spree in his high school in Russia-annexed Crimea on Wednesday, Russian authorities said. Russian investigators identified 18-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov as the attacker, saying he fatally shot himself after the rampage in Kerch, a city in the east of Crimea, which Russia seized from Ukraine four years ago. Reports had initially described the attack as involving explosives with possibly terrorist motives. Russian investigators had initially opened a terrorism probe into the attack, but later changed it to murder. “A preliminary examination of...

    In bocamag.com, Randy Schultz has penned an error filled article which seems aimed at creating a false history of Florida gun legislation.He briefly mentions 1968, when the Florida Constitution was rewritten because of a Supreme Court decision.  The 1968 Florida Constitution carried over a protection of the right to keep and bear arms from the 1885 Florida Constitution: The right of the people to bear arms in defense of themselves and the lawful authority of the State, shall not be infringed, but the Legislature may prescribe the manner in which they may be borne. Schultz claims that south Florida is...

    One campaign worker admits McCaskill would go as far as supporting a ban on semiautomatic rifles. Campaign worker Glen Winfrey describes how McCaskill intends to explain to voters why she flip-flopped on the issue of impeaching President Trump. He says she will tell Missourians, “Get over it. It was a national security question.” He adds that hiding her intent to vote for Trump’s impeachment will be explained as patriotic.

    Armed for decades, the grounds monitors of a New York school district will no longer be allowed to have access to firearms. The Saratoga Springs City School District Board voted last week 5-4 to disarm the group of school security employees, many of whom are former police officers, with the majority siding with advocates who argued firearms did not belong on campus. “I want to stress,” said Superintendent Michael Patton, “that this vote does not imply that we don’t value or support a safe learning environment.” The push to disarm the monitors was backed by Saratogians for Gun Safety, a...

    A group of states from across the country is backing a challenge to New York City’s restrictive gun laws. Led by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, they filed a brief last week in the pending request for cert of three NYC gun owners — Romolo Colantone, Efrain Alvarez, and Jose Anthony Irizarry — who argue the city’s “premises permit” scheme, which drastically restricts the ability to leave one’s premises with a firearm, is unconstitutional. The gun owners are licensed to have handguns on their residence or business but under current law can only leave with them to go to a...

    Commenting on how Democrats can strengthen their party by effectively targeting Trump administration policies they oppose, Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said liberals must "fight in the courts, fight in the streets" and "fight at the ballot box." On Tuesday morning's Morning Joe (MSNBC), co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, "So, broad question about the future of the Democratic Party, especially given your firsthand experience with what we've all been through. There's so much going on here that we clearly see, you know, places where you -- we can criticize what the administration is doing, but how does the party rebuild? How do...

In the last month, there have been several bear attacks in the news. On 9 September 2018, Dr. Brad Johnson was attacked and severely mauled. He had bear spray in his hand.  He was attacked...

"The major complaint of firearm and knife owners is that there is a lack of retention and versatility with their clips," explains Ulticlip president Randall Darby. "We hear stories of holsters coming off when the owner draws their firearm, or their knife not being accessible." They were looking for a clip that would provide a superior carry option that would offer concealment, exceptional retention, and would work without having to wear a belt. Our original Ulticlip is designed as a solution to fix...
