Your Lockdown of the Day™ comes from Kansas City, Kansas. Wyandotte High School was placed on lockdown this morning following a report of a student with a gun. After a search of the school, police discovered an infrared thermometer that happened to have a laser pointer (you know, so you know what you’re measuring the temperature of). KSHB.com reports that “students were never in danger.” If you’re always made to feel like you’re in danger due to constant false alarms and overreactions, how would you know? [h/t Prairie Patriot]
From The Tactical Wire – According to David Codrea at the Examiner, a notice posted in the Federal Register April 15 (what timing!) appears to indicate that BATFE wants to take the multiple rifle sale requirement currently imposed by fiat on licensees in four border states and extend it nationwide. As it was almost unreported, few seem to know about it and the comment period ends in June. The report continues: “‘If you have additional comments especially on the estimated public burden or associated response time, suggestions, or need a copy of the proposed information collection instrument with instructions or additional information, please contact Natisha Taylor at email@example.com, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Firearms Industry Programs Branch, Washington, DC 20226,’ the Federal Register post advises.”
Dom Raso, whom you may recognize from the NRA spots he’s done, has a new web show called Media Lab. In his first episode, he breaks down the fight scene in the final scene of Jack Reacher. (That’s the movie where the diminutive Tom Cruise plays a character who is 6.5 feet tall and a solid 250# in the books. To his credit, you soon forget he’s so much smaller.) Although this first episode isn’t exactly gun related, the series looks like it could be interesting. [h/t ENDO]
The Yankee Marshal has a short review of a car-mounted holster from Grassburr Leather Works. This is the one I’ve been thinking about getting for my own car for quite some time, but have never quite gotten around to it. I really should stop procrastinating.
Yes, yes, I know he talks about leaving your gun in your car, and I know that “you should never do that.” Now that I’ve pointed it out, those of you who would have rushed to the comment section to point it out don’t have to. You’re welcome.
