The Raleigh, North Carolina Parks Department is taking the passive-aggressive approach to changing the “No Guns Allowed” signs at the city’s 100-plus parks, saying that it would be “too expensive” to replace them all at once, but will update them “as signs are replaced (age or damage) or new signs are added.” Gun advocates say that’s disingenuous, that they don’t need to be replaced, just removed. The signs (above) were installed prior to a state law which allows concealed carry in public parks. Another reason given against a blanket overhaul of the signs is that the state legislature “might change the rules again,” though that argument doesn’t really hold much water, since the state law that negated the signs was passed back in 2011. . .
Though it’s a few weeks old, this showed up on my “Recommended Videos” list a few days ago. Like myself, I know quite a few of you own a Mossberg 500/590, and this seems like a pretty nice piece of kit. There are other side-saddles out there, but many of them attach by replacing the action pins, while this one simply uses the existing tapped screw holes on top of the receiver. I couldn’t find it at Brownell’s or MidwayUSA yet, but it’s available direct from ATI. The full-boat package of the saddle, rail, and 9 shell holders is $139.99, or you can buy any or all of that individually.
An encounter between a New Haven, Connecticut police officer and a gun-toting teenager Wednesday afternoon resulted in an unusual story about what didn’t happen. The teen, who is a known criminal in the area, led officers on a foot chase before he encountered Officer David Guliuzza. The teen pulled his loaded .38 Spl and pointed it at Officer Guliuzza. Officer Guliuzza drew and aimed his weapon in response, but did not fire (as it seems would be the case just about anywhere else). Instead, he ordered the teen to put his gun on the ground, which he did. The teen was arrested without further incident. Though he’s going to jail, I wonder if that kid knows how lucky he is to live in New Haven and to have encountered Officer Guliuzza.
Fall is in the air, the leaves are turning, and that means it’s time for pumpkins. To die. IraqVeteran8888 sends a few to a messy grave with a beautiful Benelli M2, while his partner in crime uses a break-action 10 gauge shotgun that looks like a sewer pipe from the front end. They don’t identify it, so if you know what it is please speak up, because I think I want one.
