Chasing the Machine Guns

I try to keep up with the criminal use of machine guns in the United States. To date, I have documented five cases of an actual machine gun that was used in a crime (as opposed to the crime only being possession or transfer of a machine gun) since passage of the National Firearms Act […]

Reality: Solving ‘Gun Violence’ Is Impossible

Another school shooting, another call for more gun control laws. This time, in the state with more gun control laws than any other. It won’t — can’t — work. The only way to end “gun violence” is to forcibly confiscate and destroy every single firearm in the country. Not just privately owned weapons; everything. Then […]

Why the Remington Case Cert Denial Matters More Than You Think

I have noticed a disturbing trend in the Supreme Court, considering that many people believe it to be a majority-conservative court with the appointments of Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. The Supreme Court unanimously rejected an appeal for a temporary stay of enforcement of the bump-stock-type device ban. That means Trump’s we’re sure they’ll be pro-2A […]

America and Guns: How To Spot Poor or Deceptive Polling

Did you ever wonder why polls consistently report finding that 90+% of Americans want universal background checks preemptively-prove-your-innocence prior restraint on rights, and other such nonsensical infringements…and it rarely passes when put to a referendum? Even when it does pass, actual voting results never come within 30 points of the claim. Blame poor polling technique. […]

Florida’s Red Flag Law: “A Good Start”

More than 2,600 people in Florida who had no business owning a weapon have had their guns confiscated so far under a state “red […]

Cory Booker’s Constituency: Keeping an eye of the latest Democrat stalking horse

While none of the candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination can be said to be anything but bad on Second Amendment rights, there’s always that one. Eric “Duke Nukem” Swalwell ran his low-single-digit campaign on a platform of enforcing unconstitutional edicts with overwhelming military force. He was the stalking horse for other, more credible […]

Are 80% Frames, 3D Printing, and the Ghost Gunner Now Obsolete?

The Bakersfield Police Department is reporting that they arrested a felony parolee who was “in possession of an airsoft gun that had been converted to fire .357-caliber ammunition and had six live rounds of live ammunition” One more time…an airsoft handgun…converted to fire .357 ammo. From the police image above, that appears to be this […]

New Jersey Moms Demand Action Gun Demonstration Expert Breaks Laws in Two States

Moms Demand Action recently held a Firearms 101 Presentation in the great state of New Jersey. The New Jersey Second Amendment Society helpfully documented some interesting apparent law violations that the Moms’ firearms expert committed during the educational event. It’s almost as if guest speaker Scott Pappalardo wants to go to prison for the rest […]
