Despite the fact that Japan is basically a completely disarmed country, Japanese police seized a bunch of guns and ammunition from a house in Kanagawa Prefecture that they’d received a tip was a yakuza stash house. They found 18 handguns including S&W revolvers and Colt automatic pistols, a “military rifle” and 670 rounds of ammunition. […]
During the last hundred years, the legal ability of public employees to carry defensive weapons has been eroded along with the rights of ordinary citizens. Originally intended to prevent minorities and immigrants from being armed, the philosophy of a disarmed population was put in place through work rules at all levels of government. Much of this […]
Billy may be swimming upstream here, but his point is no less valid. While he doesn’t specify, why not start the education process with the nation’s local, state and federal legislators? Now there’s a job even Sisyphus would think twice about.
Okay, the gun isn’t actually real. But Samson did an excellent job cutting together this video mocking the California legislator who proved to the nation on-camera that he has no idea how guns work. It’s worth a watch.
There’s bad blood between former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and current NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Or so Bill de Blasio wanted voters to believe before his election.

The new gun law was a triumph of common sense and the law should be allowed to stand […]
The proprietor of a Bargain Booze store in Manchester, U.K. had the intestinal fortitude to throw a barrage of beer cans at the robbers who looted his till at gunpoint. Clearly, it should have been a DGU . . .

Tom S. sent us a link to the California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms De-Certified Handgun List. Click here to peruse the lengthy document, which includes reams of Rugers and more than a smattering of Smiths (the two companies that have announced their decision to let the remainer of their CA-approved pistols fall off […]
