Campus Carry: Do You Know Where To Go In An Emergency?

Reader Mike writes:

The alarm jolts you awake, your hand shoots out slapping at your phone trying to put it on snooze. You succeed only to have it go off again after a few seconds. “Three and half hours of sleep…not bad,” you mutter as you drag your tired body out of bed and get ready to head to school. You walk in a daze, barely minding your surroundings. All you care about is more sleep….and work, all those applications for internships, all for nothing but the rejections . . .

Minnesota Set to Ban Phone Cases That Look Like Guns

“Minnesota senators voted unanimously Wednesday to ban cellphone cases that resemble handguns,” blogs.mprnews.org reports. “The bill would prohibit the manufacture, sale or possession of phone cases in the state that look like a pistol or another firearm. Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria, said the cases are dangerous because they could too easily be mistaken for a real weapon.” And then…? What? You did notice, of course, that the bill was passed unanimously. That would be 39 Democrats and 28 Republicans. Even though he voted for the bill, one Republican expressed misgivings . . .

DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: All In For Trump?

 

DABDA. The five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. I admit it. I was in denial. I thought Ted Cruz would sandbag Donald Trump’s presidential nomination at a contested convention. Maybe “hoped” is the better word. While I view Hillary Clinton as the gun rights anti-Christ, I view The Donald as a firearms freedom flip-flopper (considering his previous support for gun purchase waiting periods and an assault weapons ban). Flip me once, shame on me. Flop me twice, God help us all. Still, in this case, I think it’s better the Devil we don’t know than the Devil we do. I held my nose and voted for McCain and Romney. I’ll hold my nose, cover my eyes, block my ears and vote for Trump — if only to protect the Supreme Court from another Kagan. You?

Three Reasons Why “Smart Guns” Are A Stupid Idea

TTAG’s blogged the development of so-called “smart guns” for years. With President Obama’s executive order paving the way for government agencies to deploy guns requiring electronic owner identification of one sort or another, the issue is back in the news. As a free market guy, I see no reason why “smart guns” shouldn’t be available for sale. As a gun guy, I see lots of reason why you should never buy one. Here are my top three . . .

No Matter What You Hear, Guns Aren’t Designed to Kill People

A common slogan used by gun grabbers is that “guns are designed to kill people”.  There are several variations on this theme; the only purpose of guns is to kill; guns are designed for one thing only…to take a life; assault weapons have only one purpose – to kill as many people as quickly as possible. All of these are false and it’s easy to demonstrate how . . .

Georgia Governor Deal: Why I Vetoed Campus Carry

(courtesy usacarry.com)

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal vetoed a bill that would have “allowed” Peach Tree State residents to exercise their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Residents who are already “allowed” to carry a concealed weapon in public (i.e., issued a license by the state State after the applicant has undergone a criminal background check and payed the county a fee of around $75). Here’s Governor Deal’s official statement . . .

Boxer Tactical Daily Digest 5.4.16

Researchers: Medical errors now third leading cause of death in United States – “Their analysis, published in the BMJ on Tuesday, shows that “medical errors” in hospitals and other health care facilities are incredibly common and may now be the third leading cause of death in the United States — claiming 251,000 lives every year, more than respiratory disease, accidents, stroke and Alzheimer’s.” And yet leading lights like the Surgeon General claim “gun violence,” which results in only a fraction of that number of deaths, is the critical public health crisis of our time. Physicians, heal thyselves. In another example of shameless misdirection . . .

FACT: Guns Used More Often to Save Lives Than to Murder

DGUvMurder

Despite hanging out with the likes of Dan and RF and Tyler Kee, I still have some anti-gun friends. Every once in a while those hoplophobic folks decide to stir up a debate about gun control, and the arguments are the same every time. “Guns are designed only to kill! Why would we want to keep these evil things in society? Shouldn’t we do our best to reduce availability of these killing machines?” It’s an argument that may make sense if you start with the premise that guns are clearly evil and dangerous, but I look at things a little differently . . .

Silencer Shop Now Featuring the SIG SRD762Ti-QD Suppressor

Sig Sauer SRD762Ti-QD_2

(Sponsored Content)

When SIG SAUER stopped by Silencer Shop in early 2015, one thing was very clear: these guys are making firearm silencers for the end user. They’re not wrapped up in marketing hype, gimmicks or hooks.  They are focused solely on the science behind what makes the shooter and host firearm more successful as a unit. By incorporating tried-and-true designs of yesteryear into the modern machining process, SIG Silencers was able to produce a truly unique system . . .
