A New Sight From Holosun

dsc05260

Holosun Technologies will soon be shipping the HS510C, their first open reflex sight. As with many of the company’s other sights, a solar panel provides power in most situations. The HS510C is encased in a titanium housing, and after watching the Holosun reps whacking it on the concrete trade show floor for every customer who showed interest in it, it seems to do the trick. More pics follow . . .

Niki Clarke of WisconsinCarry.org writes [via AmmoLand.com]

As reported by fox11.com, a school teacher discovered that a colleague — Jarrod Kuehn [above] — kept a gun in his car in the school parking lot. The teacher called the cops. Kuehn believed he was legally storing his gun unloaded and encased in his center console of his locked vehicle as per Wisconsin Law. The police and prosecutors disagreed. They charged Kuehn with a felony for having a gun on school grounds. This is yet another example of the travesty that is Wisconsin’s prohibition against carry on school grounds even in your personal vehicle. Wisconsin law requires . . .

Blue Force Gear Quote of the Day: Silly Gun Owners, No One Wants Your Guns

Clete Wetli_detail4web

“Now, we’ve got the ultimate political waffler, Donald J. Trump, joined by Alabama’s Senator and perennial pessimist, Jeff Sessions, blatantly lying about Hillary Clinton by claiming that she is obsessed with repealing the Second Amendment.  They claim that her support of expanding background checks is just liberal code for mass gun confiscation. That makes about as much sense as claiming that checking ID for alcohol sales means that you’re in favor of Prohibition.” – Clete Wetli in No one is coming for your guns [at al.com]

Boxer Tactical Daily Digest 5.24.16: Gun Sales Up, Tactical Spork and AL’s AG’s Hypocrisy

16374219-mmmain

Hillary Clinton could beat Obama’s record in driving gun sales – President Pantsuit would no doubt move lots of heaters. “On the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Clinton said that Australia’s national buy-back program for banned semi-automatic rifles was ‘worth looking at’ in the United States. And she’s promised executive action to expand background checks for gun purchases. Clinton has also said that the 2008 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, the District of Columbia v. Heller-the linchpin of an individual’s right to own a gun-was wrongly decided.” Everyone we talked to at the NRA meetings last weekend reported that they’re plenty busy. Does anyone really see that changing before November? . . .

Funny or Die on Safe Storage: Just Thought I’d Leave This Here

I gotta admit it: I laughed twice at this video. Maybe even with it. Obviously, it’s over-the-top anti-gun agitprop. But it beats the hell out of all that bloody shirt waving of which gun control advocates are so fond. I mean, in terms of watchability. I found the bit where  the daughter brought her Daddy his AK — with appropriate muzzle discipline — entirely endearing. Anyway, I wonder if pro-gun rights folk could make a funny video about safe storage that doesn’t lampoon gun owners. Not so easy, eh Mr. Bond?

Gun Zero of the Day: Oceanport, NJ Police Chief Daniel Barcus

File18632

Regular readers and most sentient life forms are well aware that New Jersey — America’s armpit, as a college friend from there used to call it — is where gun rights go to die. The latest egregious example: US Army Lt. Col. Terry Russell. The soldier who’s stationed at the Picatinny Arsenal, a facility that’s been the target of terrorist threats, applied for a concealed carry permit. You know, because it’s a civil right. Well, it is in most places . . .

Three Guns TTAG Recommends: Jon Wayne Taylor Edition

Jon Wayne Taylor (courtesy The Truth About Guns)

RF asked which three guns I recommend to someone without reservation. They had to be currently made, and I limited myself to the lower middle end of the price range. That cut out a whole lot of very good guns. Still, this question was a pretty easy one to answer. There are at least three guns that I recommend, regularly, without hesitation, to any skill level shooter. Note: there are no shotguns on this list. Yes, I think everyone should own a pump-action shotgun, but there isn’t a mid priced manufacturer out there that I’ve seen perform universally well, like the guns below . . .

NJ Gov. Christie Vetoes Gun Violence Restraining Order Bill

Governor Christie (courtesy nydailynews.com)

You may remember Gun Violence Restraining Orders as a California “innovation” that allows judges to order firearms confiscation after an ex parte hearing on domestic abuse charges. Meaning that Californians subject to a GVRO have no Fifth or Fourteenth Amendment right to due process. New Jersey’s civilian disarmament pols liked the sound of that. Governor Christie just vetoed the resulting bill, a move interpreted by nydailynews.com as N.J. Gov. Christie vetoes bill restricting guns from domestic abusersMethinks Governor Christie still has national political ambitions.

BREAKING: Hawaii Set to Create a Federal Gun Owners Registry

Hawaii 5-0 (courtesy breitbart.com)

“Hawaii could become the first state in the United States to enter gun owners into an FBI database that will automatically notify police if an island resident is arrested anywhere else in the country,” bigstory.ap.com reports. “Most people entered in the ‘Rap Back’ database elsewhere in the U.S. are those in ‘positions of trust,’ such as school teachers and bus drivers, said Stephen Fischer of the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division. Hawaii could be the first state to add gun owners.” The FBI describes the system thus . . .

TSA to Prosecute Forgetful Georgia Gun Owners: 1 Year in Jail $100k Fine

TSA (courtesy realclearpolitics.com)

“Until Georgia law was changed two years ago, ‘we didn’t really have any issues here,’ Britt Johnson, who is head of the Atlanta FBI office, said of the ‘Guns Everywhere Law’ that expanded the list of places guns were allowed. The law said gun owners with a permit could take guns discovered in their carry-on luggage back to their cars or give them to someone for safe keeping, and they would not face criminal charges.” According to ajc.com, Peach State gun owners can kiss that “common sense gun law” goodbye . . .
