  • Brazil’s President Bolsonaro: “An armed people will never be enslaved!”

    On 22 May 2020, the Supreme Court of Brazil issued an order that a recording of a private meeting of President Bolsonaro with his staff is made public.  President Bolsonaro uses impassioned language some might find offensive. It shows what President Bolsonaro thinks when he is not in the public view.  The video is of a meeting on April 22, 2020. The public exposure of the video echoes what has been happening in the Trump administration.  The political opposition to Bolosonaro's reforms has instigated criminal investigations into President Bolsonaro's family.The video is ambivalent about the investigations; both sides have claimed...

    At least seven people were shot Thursday night in Louisville, Kentucky, during protests against police. Shots rang out around 11:30 p.m., and two people were wounded badly enough to require surgery. All the wounded were civilians. The Courier Journal reports Louisville Metro Police spokesperson Alicia Smiley stressing “police officers did not fire their guns.” The sources of the gunfire have not been identified, but some arrests have been made. The protests began between 6 p.m and 7 p.m. and continued until heavy rains drove the crowds home in the early morning. The hundreds of protesters chanted, “No justice, No peace,...

    A group of sidewalk counselors says a man taking his girlfriend to a Detroit abortion facility pulled a gun on them. A Facebook post shared by the abortion abolitionist group Free the States showed a man holding a gun, claiming he was angry that sidewalk counselors pleaded for him to save his baby. “This young man brandished a firearm and pointed it at the sidewalk counselors/evangelists gathered outside of the abortion mill where he recently took his child to be murdered,” the post read. “He threatened to shoot them if they kept on preaching the Gospel.” While the photo does...

    New figures obtained by RNZ show last year had the highest rates of gun crime and deaths involving firearms for nearly 10 years. But despite that rise, there has not been a corresponding increase in officers taking out or using their guns. The figures, obtained from police under the Official Information Act, show the rates of gun crime went up in both 2018 and 2019. Last year, there were 3540 occasions where an offender was found with a gun. And in both of the last two years, the rate of deadly incidents involving a firearm was the highest it had...
  • Guns N’ Roses targets Trump with new shirt: ‘Live N’ Let Die with COVID 45’

    A new shirt being sold by rock band Guns N’ Roses appears to take aim at President Donald Trump and his coronavirus response. The band’s new shirt reads “Live N’ Let Die With COVID 45,” appearing to mock the president’s trip to an Arizona factory producing N95 masks earlier this month. While Trump toured the facility, he was shown not wearing a mask while “Live and Let Die” blared over the building’s speakers, McClatchy News reported. The audio of the hit song drowned out Trump speaking to workers at the factory, video shows. Many people criticized Trump for not wearing...
  • The Truth About 3-D Printed Guns and Criminal Gun Usage

    Gun control activists have found a new target to go after: 3-D printed guns. Why? It’s an easy scapegoat to lay blame on, just like every proposed gun control policy mulled before Congress and state legislatures.This effort is attributed to two things: the reintroduction of Senator Richard Blumenthal’s (D-CT) “Untraceable Firearms Act,” and a recent ‘60 Minutes’ CBS report claiming criminals overwhelmingly prefer them when commiting crimes. The former, if passed, would ban the manufacture and sale of “ghost guns.”Giffords, a gun control organization operated by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords (D-AZ), just launched a campaign against these firearms. Unsurprisingly, the organization and its...

    A teen accused in March of attacking a 15-year-old girl and stealing her Air Jordans was shot dead on Tuesday in New York City, police said. Tyquan Howard, 16, was shot around 1 p.m. in front of a building on St. John’s Place in Brooklyn and died hours later at a local hospital, the New York Post reported. It is unclear what caused the shooting, and police have not made any arrests as of early Wednesday. Police arrested Howard and charged him with robbery and gang assault for being among a group of five teenagers caught on video allegedly attacking...

  • Massachusetts must allow gun stores to reopen despite pandemic, judge rules

    A federal judge on Thursday ordered Massachusetts authorities to allow gun shops to reopen after the governor deemed them non-essential businesses that needed to close to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock in Boston ruled that the restrictions ordered by Republican Governor Charlie Baker in response to the pandemic imposed an “improper burden” on the constitutional rights of citizens seeking to possess firearms. Baker imposed the restrictions through executive orders issued beginning in mid-March that, like those adopted in other states, forced the closure of an array of brick-and-mortar businesses in response to the...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 5/7/20 | J Dickson
    The merits of each have been debated for decades; here’s one shooter’s take. - The relative merits of the three basic types of pistols – single-action, double-action and automatic – has rarely been discussed in an impartial manner. All have their place and their advantages and disadvantages, depending upon their use. There is a lot of misinformation and even brazen lies that have been repeated for so long that many people believe them. Chief among these is the lie that revolvers are more reliable than automatics. We need to get that lie out of the way before we go any...

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MAY 02, 2020 CCFR calls for Blair’s Removal OTTAWA, ON -The Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights (CCFR) is calling for the immediate removal of Minister Bill Blair from the Public Safety file. Following a reading of yesterday’s regulation banning a swath of semi-automatic firearms and a briefing with officials from Public Safety, CBSA, Global Affairs, RCMP and the Department of Justice, it was made abundantly clear that the regulations were crafted in haste, and that the government has neither planned nor formulated the rest of the legislation required to implement their hastily crafted policy. As a result,...
  • Apple and Google blatant anti-gun move: Block GunBroker users from bidding on or buying firearms using mobile app

    GunBroker website ^ | Notthemomma
    iPhone and iPad users (Apple) and Android users (Google) are now blocked from using the GunBroker app on smart phones and pads to bid on or buy firearms, and the two tech giants have removed the GunBroker app from their stores. GunBroker discussed this sudden change in the link from 4/27/20 and updated 5/3/20. Both Apple and Google made the anti-gun restriction by saying GunBroker violated their guidelines, specifically, by "facilitating the sale or purchase of firearms." The apps can apparently still be used, for now, to search for and review items for sale, and perhaps also to post items...

    Hundreds of angry demonstrators, some of them armed with rifles, stormed Michigan’s State House on Thursday to protest stay-at-home orders — terrifying lawmakers who wore bulletproof vests to protect themselves. The protesters forced their way into the Capitol in Lansing to urge Michigan officials to end a state of emergency as the Wolverine State continues to battle one of the worst COVID-19 outbreaks in the country. Thursday’s event reached a terrifying climax when Capitol police were forced to protect lawmakers as protesters tried to storm their way into the chamber, the Detroit Free Press reported.

    What I am about to say may surprise some people, especially considering that I am the president and founder of the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA). Despite the fact that I have been pleasantly surprised by the large swath of Americans who are working to improve their preparedness in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic — indeed, the last two months have seen record firearms sales — I want to emphasize that going out and purchasing a gun is not the sole requirement of actually being prepared. Rather, it's a small step at the beginning of a lifelong and...

    A man in California had three unregistered shotguns taken away last week after "bizarre and threatening" posts on social media about a coronavirus government conspiracy, according to officials. A 52-year-old man from the Rancho Peñasquitos neighborhood of San Diego told police he believed COVID-19 was an "elaborate hoax" to allow the tracking of Americans through 5G cell towers, the San Diego City's Attorney's Office said in a news release on Saturday. “Stress from the COVID-19 public health crisis is exacerbating anxiety and mental health struggles for many,” city attorney Mara Elliott said in a statement. “Thanks to public vigilance, police...

    Academy Sports is open. Todd and Moore in downtown Columbia is not. Both are sporting goods stores, which are categorized as nonessential under Gov. Henry McMaster’s orders dictating which businesses must close to curb the spread of COVID-19 in South Carolina. But the one that sells guns can stay open. That’s just one example of seeming discrepancies in what stores can keep their doors open amid the pandemic.  The state Department of Commerce, tasked with providing guidance on business designations, has fielded nearly 4,650 questions, many of them duplicates, since April 4, just a couple days before the governors “home...

    Three armed robbers got the shock of their lives when they broke into a Florida apartment — and were shot at by the person inside, police said.

Seconds later, about five gunshots ring out and the three men scurrying out, with one even leaping over the balcony to the ground. Police said one of the home invaders was shot in the chest and was being treated at a hospital, local outlet WJXT...
