“The Gunfighter” [NSFW]

Thanks to my buddy, Matt, for linking me to The Gunfighter a few months ago. This hilarious short film should have gone up on TTAG then. Nine minutes of quality programming here, and a bit of levity in what feels like a rough couple months of serious news at home and abroad.



BREAKING: Discovery Channel Puts Sons of Guns Season 6 on Hold

The Gunner’s Vault Facebook page is reporting that the Discovery Channel has put the hit show Sons of Guns production schedule on hold. The info comes from Glenn “Flem” Fleming, self-described “former welder for Red Jacket Firearms” and “one of the guys on sons of guns.” Fleming texted Producer Chris at Gunner’s Vault, telling our man that Discovery Channel is weighing its options for Season Six. If the show is cancelled, no doubt Will Hayden’s recent legal troubles will have triggered the move. Hayden was recently arrested on child molestation charges. 


Kirsten Joy Weiss Is A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle with a Revolver (Minus the Teenage and Turtle Part)

I’m deeply jealous of Kirsten Joy Weiss’s shoulder roll gun acquisition. It’s a move I perfected at the age of ten, back when Starsky & Hutch increased car wax sales exponentially (inciting millions of boys to perfect the art of sliding over car hoods). Those days are long gone. Although I wonder if there are some mad running, jumping and shooting skillz lurking in my ancient muscle memory. Anyway, for the record, KJ Dubs is a good egg – even if she’s not good to eggs. What’s up with that?


Patriot Promotions Statement on Child Abuse Claims Against Sons of Guns’ Will Hayden

“Red Jacket Firearms and the Hayden family, want to bring their fans and general public up to date on the developments recently brought to attention by the tabloids and media. We acknowledge that allegations of child abuse were made against Mr. Will Hayden. This was reported by someone intent on smearing his reputation. The child in question was properly interviewed by child services and an arrest was made, as part of standard procedure, which is done routinely in many states. Mr. Hayden fully cooperated with law enforcement and the child was subjected to questioning, as is also routine at the child advocacy center. She was then . . .

Movie Review: ‘The Purge: Anarchy’ [Spoiler Alert!]


No matter how it sounds, the new Purge movie is not an infomercial for a high-fiber cleansing diet – although you may feel an urgent need to detoxify after you’ve seen it. The Purge: Anarchy, or Purge 2 if you will, is the second movie in this “franchise.” Both are based on a motif lifted directly from a Star Trek episode called Return of the Archons, which made its TV debut in 1967. Hollywood is sooo creative, dontcha think? In the dystopian near future (2023) of Purge 2, the US is controlled by rich white people. See, I told you that Hollywood is creative. Anyway, here’s what passes for a plot . . .

Question of the Day: What’s Your Favorite Video Game Gun?

“A strange off-shoot of my dislike of guns in real life is that I am a fanatic for ridiculous weaponry in video games.” So writes Jef With One F at houstonpress.com. In pursuit of what he calls gun centric overkill, mono-monikered Jef names what he considers to be the ten most ridiculously over-the-top firearms in the video game universe. Classics like the ever-popular landshark gun (above) from Armed and Dangerous and the ear-assaulting dubstep gun from Saint’s Row IV made Jef’s cut. So think back to all those hours wasted in your mis-spent youth (or just last night, as the case may be). What’s your favorite video game gun?


Book Review: Guns Across the Border by Mike Detty

Every Federal Firearms License holder and Second Amendment activist should read this book. Guns Across the Border, The Inside Story more than meets the expectations created by the title. It’s an intensely personal inside look at what happened in the “Wide Receiver” gunrunning investigation that was the predecessor to the Fast and Furious scandal. I met Mike Detty at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. He struck me as a quick-witted individual with a good head on his shoulders, and he was at the core of the Wide Receiver ATF gunrunning investigation . . .

New Planet of the Apes Movie Promotes Gun Control

“The ‘Apes’ franchise has always been a politically loaded one,” variety.com‘s review opines, “and this latest entry states its left-wing credo in ways both allegorically implicit and bluntly direct. (You’d have to be pretty obtuse to miss the pro-gun-control subtext attached to misdeeds on both sides of the man-monkey battle.)” We don’t have any more info on this angle, but we’re sure that our film reviewer Ralph will have something to say about that – both now and after July 9, when Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens nationwide. Watch this space, you damn dirty apes. [h/t DM]


Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow [SPOILERS APLENTY]


By Ralph

Here’s all you need to know about the “plot” of Tom Cruise’s newest sci-fi thriller, “Edge of Tomorrow:” It’s “Groundhog Day” with killer space aliens known as Mimics. Amazingly, it’s not a comedy. Of course, Tomorrow borrows liberally from yesterday, including sources other than Groundhog Day. Did I say borrows? I meant steals. There are, in no particular order of importance, the buff kickass hottie from “Terminator 2,” the mechanical battle suits from the book “Starship Troopers,” and a cross between the CGI aliens from “Attack the Block” and the arachnids from the movie “Starship Troopers.” Aaaaand, there’s more . . .

P320 Entry: Hollywood’s Gun Problem



Hollywood has a problem. First, some context. I am not claiming, as some have, that Hollywood movies are somehow responsible for violence. What I am going to attempt to convey is how many outspoken anti-gun proponents among the Hollywood elite tend to believe they have influence over the unwashed masses until accusations of negative influence arise. After a number of violent murders in the past, we tend to hear individuals in Hollywood criticize “lax gun laws,” the NRA, and pro-gun politicians for not “doing something” to curb the violence . . .
