Former Maryland governor and one-time obscure presidential candidate Martin O’Malley led an anti-gun jihad in the Old Line State after Newtown. Which is why NPR reports today that, Seeking a Warmer Welcome, Gun Factory Moves Down South. “Beretta USA was the second-largest private employer in Southern Maryland. In the history of the state, we never had a governor visit the facility.” What are a few jobs lost when you can make a political point? . . .
Taunton man arrested after allegedly flashing gun in car wash – Maybe doing jail time and losing his license to carry were on his bucket list.
Team Smith & Wesson’s Jerry Miculek Finishes Second Overall At The 2016 X-treme Bullet Texas 3-Gun Championship – Who beat him…Chuck Norris?
Gun Owners of America: Right To Carry Doesn’t Stop At State’s Border – “Representative Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) and Senator Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) have introduced national reciprocity legislation–H.R. 923 and S. 498–and the GOA is calling for other lawmakers in the GOP-controlled House and Senate to step [up] and secure passage.” So the President can veto it.

Daily Digest 8.19.16
Holy crap, it’s August already! I must be Rip Van Ralph.
Two days in a row the DD has been dated for August instead of April. Nobody questioned it or corrected it last night. What gives?
Actually I questioned it in the comments.
Ah, so you did. I just scanned it, and missed yours.
Given the precipitous drop in quality control and general usability of the site in recent weeks, I think it’s clear that The Freedom Group must’ve acquired TTAG…
I am now in trouble for laughing out loud reading this comment while on the phone with my girlfriend.
Maybe they will give a lifetime warranty in the hopes we will never use the site, à la Taurus.
“I think it’s clear that The Freedom Group must’ve acquired TTAG…”
Now, that’s low, man… 🙂
Sniff, sniff, Marlin. ?
I’m not sure how much cash they take in, as if it’s possible they can do this as a full time job. I bring it up because, I sure as shit know if I could make a living blogging I’d be drunk every single day.
Right now the homepage is showing 6/19/16.
Yeah horrified and shocked me to see the wrong date.
4th try to post…Jerry’s OLD..er. Still a 60 something stud. I’m just a little older and I sure don’t walk on water anymore.
Looks like Stutzman will be getting my vote.
Or maybe not.
‘But one gun maker, Beretta, blames something entirely different — a law passed in Maryland to try to curb mass shootings.’ – Surely the editors at npr realize that the law had nothing to do with trying to ‘curb mass shootings’. I mean, I knew liberals were dumb, but I didn’t think they were that stupid.
‘In 2013, in response to the Newtown, Conn., school shootings, then Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley led a clampdown on ownership of high-powered weaponry.’ – Uh… Beretta doesn’t make ‘high-powered weaponry’.
What are facts when you have a narrative or agenda to uphold to your political high priests?
Politics has replaced religion and thou shall not lie has been replaced with thou shall lie in the name progressive agenda.
It was a response to such shootings, however.
Not an intelligent response, not a response that was remotely to the point…but a response nonetheless.
I think the word you’re looking for is ‘pretext’.
To them anything that is semi-auto and takes more than 10 rounds is “high-powered”. Using their logic the M9 pistol is because “military issue”.
‘Continually refined and strengthened from the First World War to Desert Storm…’ – Ha! I guess you have to go back 15+ years to find an actual documentary from the ‘History’ Chanel.
Ancient Aliens isn’t a documentary? Ah crap!
It was their son Jerry Norris.
I know it would be vetoed but I’d still like to see a reciprocity bill get through to that point.
Agreed. Forward momentum if nothing else!
The south has always welcomed yankee gun manufacturers to “Come on down.” S&W and Colt are you listening?
“Who beat him…Chuck Norris?”
