Cracking the code . . . Glock’s Secret Recipe Unveiled by Smith & Wesson
It looks like Smith & Wesson has finally figured out Glock’s secret. Leaked photos of a new M&P M2.0 Compact show a pistol with a feature that has the potential to be a GAME CHANGER in the world of versatile handguns for duty, concealed carry, or home defense. What is this amazing feature, you ask?
It’s the right size. That’s it. No more, no less.
The secret of the Glock 19’s popularity is not that it’s incredibly reliable or that it’s more accurate than anything else out there. It’s not that the Glock 19 has a great trigger or that it fits hands just right or is super pointable and most people can pick it up and shoot it better than other guns. In fact, the Glock 19 is horrifyingly average in all of these aspects.
Apparently stadium carry was never even considered . . . Guns on Georgia campuses: Some say changes to law are needed
There is some consensus among supporters and critics about one aspect of Georgia’s new campus carry law, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Both sides say the provision that allows licensed weapon owners to carry guns at tailgating, but not inside athletic venues, needs changes.
People who oppose the law want guns banned from tailgating.
Those who support it want the law to provide for a safer place to store guns on campus other than a vehicle glove compartment.

Difficult conversations . . . Guns, Paranoia And Aging Parents
Debates about guns continue and everyone agrees that guns should be kept out of the wrong hands. But no one is discussing impaired elders with guns. We’ve run into the issue more than once here at AgingParents.com, consulting with families. The adult child, our client, seeks advice about the parent who is in poor health and probably has dementia. A lot of problems come up involving the need for care, when Dad should stop driving, who has the power of attorney, and the like. And mixed into the adult children’s worries is what to do about Dad’s gun collection. Or the pistol he has in the house.
Where’s the ACLU when you need them? . . . KC police disarm antifa groups, others at Washington Square rally
Kansas City police ordered armed antifa groups and others to remove ammunition from their weapons and from their possession at a rally Saturday morning in Washington Square Park.
The armed individuals peacefully complied. Several with the antifa groups said the action violated their rights under state law allowing them to openly carry weapons. They said they planned to fight the order but decided not to take any action at the park.
“We don’t see any merit to fight it now,” said one person who removed ammunition from a rifle under order of the police.
That’s a lot of work, but again, you can’t stop the signal. . . . Making an AR-15 from soda cans. Extreme recycling! FarmCraft101
A YouTube first! I melt aluminum cans, cast it in a mold, and then machine into an AR-15 lower receiver. This was a huge project for me, and I learned a lot. I think I will make a multi-part video series of the complete build with all the challenges, hiccups, and details.

So who’s gong to follow up on these reports? . . . ‘Lie And Try’ To Buy A Gun In Washington? New Law Requires Dealer To Report You
Every time gun dealers sell a gun, they must run a background check on the buyer. Now, if the buyer fails that check dealers have to fill out a special report by logging into a special website, entering the information on the failed purchaser, and submit the form.
Previously, Washington gun dealers like Don Teague of Private Sector Arms in Olympia, weren’t required to report failed background checks. But that changed this summer when a new law went into effect that targets felons, domestic abusers and other prohibited gun buyers who lie about their background and try to purchase a firearm.
