What TeenVogue Doesn’t Want You to Know About Your Gun Rights – “As a teenager growing up in north central Florida, Teen Vogue was one of my favorite magazines. It spoke to my interest in design and fashion as well as my desire for self-empowerment and knowledge. But when I came across a recent guest column in the magazine by gun control activist Shannon Watts, I was stunned at how one-sided it was. I submitted an alternative perspective to Teen Vogue, but the editors sat on my submission, refusing to even respond to my multiple inquiries. I was left to assume they didn’t want to share my point of view with their readers.” That’s probably a safe assumption.
The Brady Campaign is running a survey in case you’d like to participate.
So the NRA spent $30 million (ponied up by five million members) compared to Michael Bloomberg’s $50 million…an amount he keeps in checking. If the election had gone the other way, that would have been Shannon sitting there at the table with President Hillary. There but for the grace of God . . .

The consequences of establishing a “gun-free” zone . . . Bills aims to hold businesses banning guns responsible for customers – “More and more businesses across the country are banning firearms on their property. Now, a proposed bill in the state Legislature aims to make those businesses responsible for the safety of customers who may be left vulnerable without access to their weapon. Michael Sfakianos is a concealed weapons permit holder and values his right to carry his gun in public. ‘If something were to happen, how long does it take for law enforcement to get there or someone else to help me out?’ he asks. ‘I’m responsible for my own well-being, my own life.'”
Legal quandaries down under . . . The legal minefield of 3-D printed guns – “In the next 20 years we will be able to print drugs, metals and substances at an atomic level – possibly all at home. Regulation of these things is currently predicated on the idea that producing them typically required expertise and specialised equipment. But that may no be the case for long. This will mean we need a new unified approach to legislation that specifically speaks to the capabilities of 3-D printers, and the distribution of the files they use.”
CNN finds a silver lining . . . How President Trump is bad for the gun industry – “President Barack Obama was the greatest gun salesman in America — until Hillary Clinton ran to replace him. Sales soared to records because gun owners feared they would impose tougher gun restrictions. Now that a Republican endorsed by the National Rifle Association is in the White House, those supposed villains have disappeared. Sales of guns and ammo are falling, right along with the stocks of gun makers.”
‘Ammunition Wines’ Introduced at Safari Club International Convention – “Andy Wahl, GM, Winemaker and Ammunition Wine co-founder, credits the companies growth to their individual approach to their wine and customers. ‘We have wines that speak to people. We create advocates who make Ammunition Wine their own.’ Wahl said. ‘Our wines are like wiener dogs. Lots of personality and individuality, but a tough-as-nails hunting dog with a serious mean streak.’ Ammunition Wine sets itself apart with its unique, vintage early 1900’s-style packaging and tin capsules to mimic the look of a cartridge.”
Guns and Gals, eh?
