Daily Digest: Gripless Pistols Edition

The headline reads “Officer’s gun fires during arrest of Big Lots suspect” and leads off with “A police officer’s gun went off during a dangerous encounter,” so this was originally going to be yet another post about passive-voice, responsibility-free reporting of gun incidents. But it turns out in this case, this wasn’t just another example […]

Gun Tattoo of the Day: Wizard And Glass Edition

The tattoo above adorns TTAG reader John Anderson’s arm. The image is from the Jae Lee art for Marvel’s Dark Tower comic book series, an adaptation of Stephen King’s Wizard and Glass. I have no idea of the significance of the image; the last time I read a Stephen King novel my pets almost died from […]

Ventura County Joins Orange County, Goes “Shall Issue”

Ventura County sheriff (yes, Ventura County, California) Geoff Dean is the latest to adopt a ‘shall-issue’ CCW policy for its county residents. In so doing, he joins Orange County as a ‘shall issue’ jurisdiction.

Gun Review: Del-Ton ‘Evolution’ AR-15

  Del-Ton makes ARs, and this Evolution model is its top of the line. For those of you with truly short attention spans, the USA Today version of this review is that the Del-Ton DTI Evolution is pleasantly accurate, exceptionally comfortable and perfectly reliable. And lightweight, too. Joe and I shot it fairly extensively and […]

Self Defense Tip: Carry a Bible

While the good book may be beneficial for the soul, it can also be pretty handy when it comes to protecting your chest. “Rickey Waggoner, a Dayton RTA bus driver, was making a mechanical fix outside his bus when three assailants approached him and shot him in what appears to have been a gang initiation, […]

CT State Police Ready to Go Door-To-Door

“We’re sworn to uphold the law,” Connecticut State Police Spokesman Lt. Paul Vance tells GMN Producer “Guerilla Girl Ashley.” In other words, if it comes down to it, the Constitution State po-po will go door-to-door to confiscate firearms and magazines now rendered felonious by CT’s post-Newtown civilian disarmament legislation. When Ashley asks if Lt. Vance’s oath […]
