Missoula, Montana Highlights the Inanity of “Universal Background Checks”

“Universal background checks” are the Holy Grail of the civilian disarmament movement. No surprise there. Under the system, all private firearm sales and transfers must go through an FBI background check from a federally licensed firearm (FFL) dealer. The government then has a paper record of every firearm sale between private individuals and those initiated by FFL dealers, including the firearm type and […]

Question of the Day: Pocket Carry?

FMG’s American Handgunner sent me a link to this ancient-by-Internet-standards video of ccwbreakaway pants. The comments have been disabled — probably because some viewers thought the carry system is a stupid idea. Or maybe there were too many d!ck jokes.

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson Model 19-3

The Smith & Wesson Model 19 “Combat Magnum” was one of the most beloved handguns ever made. Produced continuously from 1957 to 1999, tens of thousands of police officers carried a Model 19 on their hip, including US Immigration and Naturalization Service and the US Border Patrol agents.

NYPD Top Cop: We’re Still Doing Stop and Frisk. Because Guns

“Police are still stopping and questioning people in the city,” nypost.com reports. “The police tactic continues to be a useful tool for driving down crime, Police Commissioner James O’Neill said on the radio Sunday morning. ‘It’s something that we continue to do.’” Paging George Orwell! When did the Big Apple po-po’s “stop-and-frisk” policing become “stop-and-question”? Maybe when mayoral candidate […]
