    “At 4:43 a.m. on Sunday December 21, 2014 the Lodi Police Department responded to the Satin Dolls located at 230 Route 17 South in the Borough of Lodi to investigate a reported robbery,” the LPD press release reveals. “It was determined that two men armed with shotguns entered the premises and robbed the business of approximately $30,000.00 dollars. The actors then fled in an unknown direction.” Actors? That’s funny! The Sopranos used the Satin Dolls club as the set for the Bada-Bing Club.

    Statement of NAACP Legal Defense Fund &  Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Today’s fatal shooting of two police officers in New York is shocking and tragic.

The bullet resistant vest guy designed the Cap because police helmets violated his fashion sense. No seriously . . . “The initial spark occurred at a trade show when I was repeatedly asked if we made ballistic helmets,” his Kickstarter come-on reveals. “I thought ‘yuck! I don’t want to make those, they look ridiculous in a civilian environment.’ But ignoring a number of customers is always a bad idea. [Ed: especially when they’re armed.]…
  • Ohio Gov. Kasich Signs Gun Law Reform Bill Into Law (H.B. 234)

    Without fanfare, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed H.B. 234 into law Friday. While the gun law reform bill didn’t make all the changes that Second Amendment supporters desired, it made substantial improvements in the law, and was broadly supported in the legislature. That support was reflected by the large vote margins for passage of the bill; 24-6 in the Senate, 69-16 in the House. Among its provision, the bill . . . Creates reciprocity to recognize concealed handgun permits from other states, much as drivers licenses are recognized. Eliminates a provision in the law that equated…

Apparently seeing a target of opportunity, two wayward yoots grabbed him, pummeled him and appropriated his cell phone. Wait, isn’t Hizzoner’s humble abode, you know, protected by some of Chicago’s finest? As a matter of fact, chicago.cbslocal.com reports, “Police officers are assigned to the mayor’s home front and back 24 hours a day. There are also cameras at both ends of the block.” It seems nowhere is safe in Chiraq these days. But…

Rebekah Rorick submitted the picture for inclusion in the 2015 Broadalbin-Perth High School yearbook only to have it rejected by a faculty member on the yearbook committee due to the weapon. After meeting behind closed doors, the school board ruled Rebekah’s photo appropriate for the yearbook. Good for them. More at the link including what really is a very nice picture of her.

    From the Houston Chronicle: As a 12-year-old in 1958, Mike Clark bought an antique revolver for $45 at a gun show. He sold it almost immediately when someone offered to buy it from him as he left the building. “I made a profit of $25 in three minutes, and I thought about how many yards I’d have to cut to make that,’” Clark said. “From then on I was buying and selling guns.” Clark founded Collectors Firearms in Houston in 1975. Originally housed in a 500-square-foot stall in a shopping plaza, the store gradually spread in almost every direction. Today the…

    From Fox News: A federal appeals court in Cincinnati deemed a law unconstitutional that kept a Michigan man who was committed to a mental institution from owning a gun. The three-judge panel of the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that a federal ban on gun ownership for those who have been committed to a mental institution violated the Second Amendment rights of 73-yearold Clifford Charles Tyler. Tyler attempted to buy a gun and was denied on the grounds that he had been committed to a mental institution in 1986 after suffering emotional problems stemming from a divorce.

Using survey data from 2006 through 2014, Gallup found: -- 31 percentage points more blacks than whites believe black males…

He also said in that video that he’ll compromise with people calling for an outright repeal of the Second Amendment and ban guns that shoot too many rounds that would ruin meat while hunting.

    Nebraska and Oklahoma, in a shocking level of disrespect for the concepts of federalism, are suing the State of Colorado over legal weed. This case would be heard at the Supreme Court, since in cases of suits by one state against another, the Supreme Court has Original Jurisdiction. You might be thinking this is an off topic post, but it’s not. If Nebraska and Oklahoma were to prevail on their claim, it would open the door to states like New York and New Jersey to sue neighboring or nearby states for their gun laws. The suit against Colorado rests on the notion that Colorado’s…

    In the last few days a letter has surfaced on the Internet reportedly written to a small shotgun maker, which states that shouldering a Sig Sauer SB 15 pistol stabilizing brace could change a firearms classification to a short barrel shotgun. The letter was written in response to Black Aces Tactical's request related to a short-barreled shotgun that was designed to incorporate the SB 15 Brace. Black Aces Tactical submitted a sample which they say had an overall length of 27 inches. The sample had a SigTac SB15 arm brace attached as well as a vertical foregrip. The brace is intended to allow a…
  • How long does a Form 4 take with a Gun Trust and Update to 41P

    David M. Goldman
    7 Nov 2014 | 12:21 pm
    Great news! The ASA is reporting that the time to process a Form 4 with a Gun Trust has continued to decrease and looks like the time will continue to decrease. Less than a year ago the average wait time was in excess of 12 months. A few months ago the time was reduced to 6-9 months. The current time is 4-6 months, and if you are processing a trust now, you could see an even shorter time as ATF clears their backlog. ATF is continuing to hire and train more people to process the increasing number of ATF Form 4s and Form 1s. Even better news is that we may see a new electronic Form 4 announced…

While optimized for competition, there’s no reason these models couldn’t serve as a home defense go-to gun. Some of the features that make it a great competition gun serve equally well on other capacities too. There are four variants of the new M&P Performance Center ported models – two each in 9mm and .40 S&W caliber. Each caliber offers a 5-inch and 4.25-inch barrel choice. All other…

    Here’s the FLIR view of the brand new Smith & Wesson M&P Pro Series CORE with compensated barrel. As you can see, it’s was just fired. If you really want to be able to see, sometimes you have to use a lens that you can’t see through. I recently toured one of FLIR’s manufacturing facilities and got quite the education on how to see things you can’t really see. While FLIR makes a wide variety of sensing gear, not just infrared products, they’re most commonly known for commercial and military products that help folks see things not normally visible to the human eye.

    The Truth About Guns

  • Question of the Day: Are Race Baiters Responsible for NYPD Assassin?

    Robert Farago
    21 Dec 2014 | 10:00 am
    Personal responsibility. That’s our policy. Whether it’s a gang banger, cop, armed self-defender or irresponsible gun owner, the person who pulls the trigger is responsible for what happens next. Not society. Not his or her mother or father. Not the NRA. So when I ask if race baiters/hustlers are in any way responsible for the actions of Ismaaiyl Abdula Brinsley, know that we’re talking about relative culpability. In other words, did Sharpton, Mayor Bill de Blasio and other racialists create a climate of hate that enabled Brinsley’s murderous…

No matter the circumstances of this assassination, its timing, causes, etc., this one is going to hurt the NYC area for quite some time. So, how soon before someone says THIS is another reason for greater gun control measures? How long before some misguided idiot, eager to exploit this senseless loss, decides to use it to make an irrelevant point that fits their narrative? I am sure it will come, and when it does, someone should be ready to remind that fool and their followers that . . . 1) The killer was…

Boyds Gunstocks‘ presser proclaims “A gunstock serves as the foundation of the barreled action and plays a big role in eliminating movement. A hardwood gunstock assists in dampening the vibration and impact created when the trigger is pulled. If a stock is hollow or flexible, it allows the barreled action to move, which can significantly affect the accuracy of your shot.” While I get wood (so to speak), there are…

In the 1990’s Sig firearms were made in Germany and imported to the U.S. Eventually Sig USA setup shop and assumed manufacturing for most, if not all, of the product line and even began to venture out on their own with home brewed designs based on previous Swiss ventures like the 550 rifle.
