It doesn’t take the brain-bending paranormal powers of a 70’s era mentalist to divine where The Amazing Kreskin is going in this video on the topic of guns. Despite the somnambulistic delivery, he hasn’t forgotten all the principles of showmanship, teasing his next installment and leaving his audience wanting more. Peering into our Magic Eight Ball we see an anti-gun jeremiad in our future (especially since the PR agency that sent this one out did so under the title “The Amazing Kreskin on Gun Control and what he REALLY thinks about the NRA”). Are we likely be less than impressed with Kreskin’s deep thoughts on firearms freedom? It is decidedly so.

Facebook claims another one. We got a call from Scott James who owns an established brick and mortar gun store and training operation in Visalia, California. It seems he’s fallen into the same Facebook black hole that swallowed up our friends at Kentucky Gun Company earlier this year. No explanation, no response to his appeal, no satisfaction from Zuckerberg’s hoplophobic high command. And so it goes.
KHSD voted to allow guns on campus: What happens now? – “Kern High School District leaders approved a controversial policy Monday allowing some to carry concealed firearms on campus, however the implementation of that policy remains murky with board members differing on their interpretations. The decision was sparked by Senate Bill 707, which bars guns on public school district property, except for those Concealed Carry Weapon permit holders who receive written exemptions from local superintendents or their representatives.” California really is different when you move a few miles in from the coast.
Of Germany, Orange County, Guns, Gun Safety and Still More Guns – “I recently returned to the United States from Germany. I lived in southern Germany for three years. One of the starkest contrasts between German and American society is the attitude toward firearms. This contract (sic) is especially apparent in light of the fact that before living in Germany I lived in Dallas, Texas, for four years.” A US expat returns and experiences…Walmart.
American gun ownership drops to lowest in nearly 40 years – “The percent of American households owning guns is at a near-40 year low in the latest CBS News poll released this month. According to the survey, which was conducted among 1,001 Americans in the aftermath of the Orlando nightclub shooting, 36 percent of U.S. adults either own a firearm personally, or live with someone who does. That’s the lowest rate of gun ownership in the CBS poll going back to 1978. It’s down 17 points from the highest recorded rate in 1994, and nearly 10 percentage points from 2012.” The American firearms industry is running at near capacity and has been setting new sales records for the last 7+ years. Was this the same polling firm that said Brexit would fail?
7 Experts Share Why They Carry A Gun – “Many CCW supporters carry concealed weapons after heartbreak.

However, one thing is certain: experts in the firearms industry carry concealed handguns for the same reasons everyday, law-abiding citizens do.” You’re almost sure to recognize at least one of these magnificent seven.
