GunTV Launches Tomorrow (April 1)

According to GunTV’s promo video, the cable TV service’s goal is to “spread a social responsibility message.” It’s all about promoting firearms-related education, information and safety. Yes, well, GunTV is QVC for firearms. “Our unique platform allows industry manufacturers to showcase products through our talented and experienced on-air hosts,” their presser [posted below] proclaims. “Viewers will receive in-depth, entertaining […]

Texas Republican Convention Allows Open and Concealed Carry

“While gun rights advocates wrangled with the Secret Service over firearms at the Republican National Convention,” reports, “the Texas GOP confirmed it will allow both open and concealed carry at its convention in Dallas in May.” Although permitted open carry only became law in The Lone Star State last January, the pro-pistol policy is not new. Legally […]

DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: Does the Bible Enshrine a ‘God-Given Right’ to Shoot in Self Defense?

That’s the question posed about an article by Peter Manseau over at Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitprop machine The Trace (yes, them again). To be fair, Manseau attempts to be fair about the scriptural underpinning to Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms — at least until the last paragraph. Like this […]

President Obama Commutes Sentences of Drug Dealing Firearms Felons

By his own admission, President Obama used to snort coke (a.k.a., “a little blow”). On Wednesday, by his own decree, the President commuted the sentences of some 61 drug dealers. Most of the 61 mid-week commutations free felons convicted of cocaine possession with intent to distribute, the rest relating to the illegal distribution of other controlled substances. Wait. What’s this? Twelve of the felons listed by the were […]

New From Wilson Combat: X-TAC LightRail Compact

My EDC is a Wilson Combat X-TAC Commander 1911. It cost a bomb, weighs a ton and carries just eight rounds of ammo. On the positive side, it weighs a ton (minimizing recoil), conceals like a jaguar and enables me to hit precisely what I’m aiming at. That said, the Wilson X-TAC is not my bedside ballistic BFF. That […]

Daily Digest 3.29.16

TTAG’s Daily Digest never suffers from acid indigestion. It has a stomach for all gun news, no matter how bilious. In today’s installment, a police chief freaks-out about his stolen AR (looks like his colleagues rounded-up the usual suspect), a Mexican cop who lost his job wishes he’d lost his life (before he lost his job), the Secret Service […]

Anti-Trump Ad Misrepresents The Donald’s Views on Gun Rights

Don’t get me wrong. I wouldn’t trust Donald Trump to cash a twenty, never mind defend and extend Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. But the Our Principles anti-Trump ad above misrepresents The Donald’s views on guns by slicing out an unrepresentative bit out of a larger Town Hall-type […]

Organizing for Action’s Larry Hirsch: Inside the Twisted Mind of a Gun Control Advocate

Organizing for Action “Team Leader” and Garden State gadfly Larry Hirsch [above] penned a polemic for called Just Sayin’ — Republican Doublespeak on Guns. As a TTAG commentator once pointed out, when you say “just sayin’” you’re “just sayin’” your logic is on shaky ground. If that’s true, Hirsch’s anti-gun rights rhetoric rates an eight on […]

Gun Hero of the Day: Ohio Gun Store Owner John Downs

Gun control advocates consider gun store owners “merchants of death.” They label store owners in low-income areas “bad apples” (when a small but above average percentage of their legally purchased firearms show up at crime scenes). In fact, gun store owners are law-abiding businessmen defending and extending Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. […]
