This year, 12 other states are considering similar legislation. ‘It’s a disturbing trend,’ says Andy Pelosi, executive director of the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus. ‘They’re picking up one state a year.'”

 

Fudds go full Zumbo on why semi-auto rifles just aren’t right for hunting in the Keystone State. . .

  1. “A copy of valid receipt and a copy of page 3 on the 4473 will be required to submit for this promotion.”

    I’ve never once been offered a copy of page 3 any time I’ve purchased a firearm. Seems a bit odd to me.

    • Uh, is there a page 3? I seem to remember only one sheet, front and back. Of course, it has been months since I bought a gun …

      • I thought people were complaining the new one was 6 pages, including instructions, and BATFE is/was late in getting them to the FFLs…

  2. Women with shotguns fighting crabs…that jarred a long repressed memory 🙂 Ah miss spent youth.

  3. Is there anyone else on here old enough that they’ll understand “Helga tried but didn’t ‘Beat the Glock'”? And I’d much rather see a “Freakshift” movie about women killing itty-bitty crabs like the kind which caused me a great deal of itchy misery after passing through Okinawa on my way back to “The World” from South Vietnam!

  4. The Nosler is a $2500 rifle. I suspect it is great for those who can afford it. Pretty slick write-up too.

  5. I’m currently in Bend until Sunday night.

    Was planning on going to local gun show on Saturday but if I had the time and money would be calling Nosler on Monday. Looks quite interesting rifle.

    • Our Fudds are just the worst – MUH TRADISHUNZ… It was allegedly popular opinion that made the PGC change its mind at the last minute on semiautos for big game. I have no idea how xbows got through this nonsense. And lifting the Sunday hunting ban is likely going to have to wait until many dumb Fudds are in the dirt.

  6. “says Andy Pelosi, executive director of the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus.”

    Was that really a necessary quote, Rolling Stone? Gee, I wonder how he feels about Campus Carry?

  7. …….and it kills more than 30,000 and injures an additional 70,000 annually.”

    Only 30,000? If you are going to use numbers without any context (betcha some of the 30,000 are suicides and gang violence), why not make the body count more shocking by padding them a bit? Maybe 30 billion trilliony deaths!! By unstoppable killing black guns-o-death!! 88 magnums!! Shoots through school houses!!

    • “88 magnum”

      I hadn’t thought of Danny in Johnny Dangerously in years, thanks for the memory! Great film.

  8. “The costs of southern gun culture”? The writer states that 5 of the 10 states with the highest gun murder rate are in the south.

    Want to know what other factor is common among 10 of 10 states/cities with the highest gun murder rate? They all have high black populations, and the majority of the murders are black on black, or black on white.

    But if somebody wrote an article titled “The Cost of American Blacks and Guns” or “The Cost of Hip-Hop Culture and the Failed Black Family on America”, the left would FREAK out.

    Look, 51% of the murders in the US are committed by 13% of the population. Murder in America is a majority black thing. Black people are why Memphis, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Atlanta, Miami, Jackson, Selma, Chicago, Newark, Oakland, Houston, Birmingham, Gary, Detroit, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Richmond, Virginia Beach, and every other city in America with a sizable black population is also riddled with violent crime.

    But hey, we can’t say that….

    • Dems do! Remember Osama laid out the entire argument for outlawing of all firearm possession by all blacks, then looked like he suddenly realized what he was saying, went back to demanding UBC, instead, pretended he didn’t realize what he’d done?

  9. Gang-bangers in the aforementioned cities don’t even hold a candle to Planned Parenthood in the number of black lives prematurely snuffed out.

    But hey, black lives only matter when they’ve been ended by a white cop.

    • Can you imagine how much worse things would be in the aforementioned cities if there was no abortion?

      Black people are on a murder rampage nationwide, and the cities where the most gun crime is happening are also really quick to NOT prosecute gun crime.

      • As witnessed by the current and continuing drop in violent crime, started around 18 years after Roe v Wade. It’s only a couple pages in “Freakonomics”, guys, take a minute to read it.

        • Fun fact – one of the main critics of that study is none other then John Lott, of _More Guns, Less Crime_ fame. There was a whole academic snarkfest a few years back over this thing. If you like academic snarkfests like I do, it makes for good reading.

  10. I wish people would pull their heads out of dark stinky holes. Now don’t get me wrong here. I have no problem with open carry, I have no problem with CCW. I have no problem with gun ownership. At least for legal law-abiding sane folks. HOWEVER, open carry rifles is just outright stupid. Makes gun owners of all types look bad. Wake up!

    • I completely agree with you K but I’d never admit it in public. Those gun fools that insist on open carry of black rifles are damaged goods just itch’n to prove the other ~100% of gun owners are wrong.

      One such nutball wanted to light up a high school with a bolt action just to prove that semi autos weren’t necessary to commit mass murder.

    • I love the fact this is the first time I’ve seen that with a mag installed, you can at least imagine the thing is actually loaded. And I don’t mind seeing that at all, though I’d have a sidearm to protect it with.

    • Very few open carriers, outside of a venue like hunting, are serious about carrying a long gun for self-defense. The vast majority are protesting the infringement of their rights to open handgun carry or constitutional carry.

      It’s no more about carrying the long gun itself, than sitting unserved at a Woolworth’s lunch counter was about eating lunch. Those guys were called all manner of invective at the time, too. Now they’re heros.

  11. ‘It’s a disturbing trend,’ says Andy Pelosi, executive director of the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus. ‘They’re picking up one state a year.’”

    That *is* disturbing! Why can’t 2 or 3 a year do it?

  12. “Freakshift is about ‘women with shotguns fighting giant crabs’”

    Isn’t there a blue ointment for that?

  13. Rolling Stone went all apoplectic about the number of colleges with campus carry, and more coming every year. However, they failed to ask the one important question that would end all the arguments about that subject:

    We have enough test cases now that we should be able to reach a conclusion based on the facts, not on fear-mongering theories. So when will we start seeing “rivers of blood in the classrooms”, like was predicted by all the folks opposing campus carry? Could it be that the whole thing is a non-issue? Could it be that guns on campus are NOT dangerous? The facts sure seem to indicate that.
