The United States of Guns: Non-Incendiary Image of the Day

(courtesy thetrace.org)

I found this image above an article in Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitprop media machine, thetrace.orgThese 9 States Have the Most Abnormally High Gun Death Rates in America. I have a sneaking suspicion that the study upon which it’s based is the same contextless hokum that the antis create on a regular basis. But there’s too much stats and math and TTAG’s stat and math man Foghorn is teaching TTAG’s resident war hero Jon Wayne Taylor how to fly an airplane. (Two key employees in a small plane…how great is that?) So I’ll leave that and focus on something I’ve noticed about gun control advocates’ anti-gun “art” . . .

Breaking: 1989 “Prior Art” Example Pertinent to Mossberg Drop-In Trigger Lawsuits

image001

As we covered a few days ago, Mossberg purchased the patent held by CMC Triggers protecting the idea of a self-contained, drop-in fire control group that uses the factory trigger pin and hammer pin and has begun suing manufacturers of drop-in AR-15 triggers for infringement. At the NRA Annual Meetings I spoke with a few manufacturers who insisted that there was significant “prior art” well before CMC’s patent, meaning that triggers operating in this manner had existed for many years already. To use this as a defense they have to prove it’s actually true. Well, here’s the very best example I’ve seen so far . . .

dsc05079

At the NRA show this year we saw some new scatterguns from Beretta, in both semi-auto and over/under flavors. Seen above (and in a bunch of photos that follow), the A350 Xtrema slots in right between the A300 and A400 to provide as many features as possible at a ~$1,000 retail price point. The Black line of over/unders brings sleek, modern looks to a classy style of sporting gun . . .

DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: Do You Have Any Liberal Friends?

The video above was created by The Guardian, the U.K.’s preeminent liberal newspaper/news service. Denied press credentials, reporter Lois Beckett trolled the sidewalk outside the NRA convention asking members “What do liberals get wrong about guns?” It takes all of 54 seconds for Ms. Beckett to present the appropriate OFWG NRA “extremist.” That said, this is an incredibly positive piece. In fact, at 1:08 she finds a unicorn! A progressive NRA gun owner! I knew someone who also fit that description and we were good friends. Do you have any liberal friends? If so, do any of them own guns? And do you debate the issue or just leave it?

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? . . .
