    The national Sunday morning talk shows blamed President Trump for the New Zealand massacre that left 50 dead. CNN’s Jake Tapper warned: “I don’t think moderate Republicans are doing enough to hold President Trump accountable for his rhetoric.” NBC’s Chuck Todd noted supposed parallels to the killer’s rhetoric, and asked: “When the president uses the term ‘invaders,’ does that dehumanize to the point where it can get misused?” The media made Mr. Trump its singular target, but not even Democrats were completely spared from the frenzy of critical reactions. In a viral video, an angry NYU student confronted Chelsea Clinton...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 3/20/2019 | E Pederson
    For those not familiar with the SCCY CPX-2, the pistol falls into the category of the Kel-Tecs and Ruger LCP/LC9. SCCY-2 comes in polymer frame with stainless steel barrel and slide. With its double stack magazine and double action in 9mm chambered, which is one of the most popular self-defense caliber in the U.S. The SCCY-2 straddle that line between a compact and a subcompact pistol. Small enough to conceal yet reliable and accurate. SCCY double action trigger pull is at nine pounds according to the specs, some owners have measured it at around eight pounds on their pistol without...
  • Pistols or Handguns 95% Effective When Used to Defend Against Bear Attacks, 63 Cases

    In January 2018, I published some original research on the efficacy of pistols in stopping bear attacks. It started with this observation, on the Internet, and in print, many people claim that pistols lack efficacy in defending against bear attacks. Here is an example that occurred on “Actually, there are legions of people who have been badly mauled after using a handgun on a bear. Even some of the vaunted magnums.” OK, give us a few examples. As you claim “legions”, it should not be too hard. I never received a response. I believe the claim was made in...

    Many New Zealand gun owners have voluntarily surrendered their semi-automatic rifles to police following Friday's terror attack at two mosques in Christchurch, Newsweek reported. Some have taken to social media to encourage others to follow their move. "Until today, I was one of the New Zealanders who owned a semi-automatic rifle," farmer John Hart tweeted. "On the farm they are a useful tool in some circumstances, but my convenience doesn't outweigh the risk of misuse. "We don't need these in our country. We have [to] make sure it's #NeverAgain."

And while the mainstream media is helping fuel the prejudice against gun rights, their greatest bias is in what they refuse to print.True to form, here are at least three things the media will not tell you about New Zealand’s shooting. First, New Zealand has far greater gun control than we have in the United States.New Zealand requires gun owner...
  • PA Democrats: Our Bill Would Create A Gun Registry In The State

    We all saw the rumblings of this for years. Democrats want to destroy the Second Amendment, create gun registries, and eventually confiscate firearms. It won’t happen in a couple of years, of course. This is the long game. Emboldened by their state-level victories in Vermont and Florida, in which the anti-gun Left was able to increase the age to purchase all firearms to 21. In Vermont, they even got Republican (and at the time pro-NRA) Gov. Phil Scott to sign off on magazine limits. As you all know, 18 years of age was the minimum for a long gun. In...

    Magpul Expands Into Traditional Rifle Stock Offerings, Including A Model For The Remington 700. Magpul has expanded into more traditional rifle stocks and is taking them to new levels. I was recently sent a Magpul "Hunter" stock for the Remington 700 series rifles to test. Now, admittedly, I'm not much of a hunter. I choose to spend my shooting time a bit more tactically, but with that said, I really do like this stock. The version I received was in basic black, but other available colors include flat dark earth, stealth gray and olive drab green. This stock features reinforced...

    New Mexico Second Amendment supporters are doing more than passing Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions. The New Mexico Republicans are leading a movement to repeal the offending law using the power of the people. New Mexico has a provision in its Constitution, rather similar to that in Switzerland. If the legislature passes a law offensive to the people, they can demand a referendum be held. If the law is not approved of in the referendum, the law is annulled. The Republican party in the New Mexico House released this notice: From Santa Fe – House Republicans joined New Mexico’s...

    Pennsylvania lawmakers are considering a bill that would create a gun registry across the state. The bill would require gun owners across the state to register their firearms through state police every year. Under the proposal, gun owners would need to undergo an annual background check, including fingerprinting. Gun rights advocates are against the idea, saying it’s a violation of the federal and state constitutions.

    The Washington Post called the New Zealand mosque shooting “one of the worst cases of right-wing terrorism in years.” Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the killer "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist." “The person giving a sign of allegiance to President Trump is the killer here,” said CNN’s John Berman. “He called him a symbol of white identity. The language he uses in this manifesto is all about invaders. It is all about invaders, similar to the killer at the synagogue in Pittsburgh and language President Trump used in a campaign ad before the midterm election. The word invader means...

    It began as an operation targeting a cocaine ring in southern New Jersey. But after investigators listened to a wire tap, the case took on an unexpected focus: do-it-yourself firearms made from parts easily found online. The suspects in New Jersey are accused of trying to sell several homemade AR-15 assault-style rifles that are known as ghost guns because they cannot be tracked. The AR-15 rifle is a powerful weapon similar to the one used to kill 11 people last year at a Pittsburgh synagogue. On Monday, New Jersey law enforcement officials announced the arrests of four men who became...

    Freedoms of the press and speech are something which is near and dear to my heart. The ability for people to say what they want or broadcast what they want – without fear of government reprisal – is a key pillar of freedom and liberty. I may not like what someone posts on social media or expresses in a newspaper, blog, TV, or radio – but I will defend their ability to give an opinion or air their content. The recent actions by the New Zealand government in light of last week’s horrific terrorist attack only solidify my point...

    A BB pellet may be stuck in a man’s neck for the rest of his life after he was shot by a woman with a BB gun in a North Side Chicago Starbucks Wednesday. The man said he was sitting next to a woman in the middle of the afternoon at an Andersonville Starbucks when she unexpectedly opened fire. “She was sitting right next to me so I was hit in the neck,” the victim, who wished to remain anonymous for safety concerns, said. “Of course everyone in Starbucks was standing up, staring at me, and somebody said, ‘You’re bleeding.’”...

    The popular Glock handguns announced their new Glock 43X back in January at Shot Show and gun guru Hickok45 had a chance to shoot this new Glock. While he says this Glock doesn't fit his way of use, he does give it a pretty good review. Here are some differences compared to the Glock43. The width of the slide of the 43X is exactly the same as the 43. However, the 43X frame is a little wider, We can’t say we like the idea of an all-new magazine design that isn’t compatible with older models. Still, this firearm is probably...

    Some rushed to their trusted online dealers and stores to stock up on semiautomatic assault-style rifles. Others unlocked their secure cabinets, picked up their firearms and turned them in to police stations, no questions asked. The estimated quarter of a million gun owners across this largely quiet, peaceful South Pacific country, many of them dedicated hunters, are bracing for what are likely to be significant changes to New Zealand’s firearm laws. Leaders have hinted that the changes will impact the proliferation and availability of semiautomatic weapons in particular. The changes, agreed to in principle by the country’s coalition government Monday...

    Kentucky recently became the 16th state to amend its laws to get rid of onerous restrictions on healthy, law-abiding adults bearing arms, conforming its concealed weapons statutes to the Constitution and irritating liberals who prefer that we citizens remain helpless sheep. Some of us channel the Founders and believe it is every eligible citizen’s duty to own the kind of guns liberals label “assault weapons” in order to be able to personally protect themselves, their families, their communities and their Constitution; others just want the option of carrying a .38 at a house of worship or elsewhere in public where...

    Attorney General David Parker had told a crowd at a vigil Saturday that a key part of the government's response was to ban semi-automatic weapons, a step further than Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had called for in the wake of the attacks. But Parker told Radio New Zealand on Saturday that the government has yet to make any decision on what changes to gun ownership policies, if any, would look like. "We need to ban some semi-automatics, perhaps all of them. Those decisions have yet to be taken, but the prime minister has signaled that we are going to look...
