This kind of thing seems to be happening more often . . . This Liberal Reconsidered Gun Control. He Found It’s A Lot More Complicated Than ‘More Guns, More Crime’
I have always looked at the gun problem and assumed that there is a “commonsense” solution if the gun lobby would just get out of the way and people would just screw their heads on right. Like most Americans, I still support efforts to improve the efficacy of the background-check system, but I now understand them to be common sense but not solutions—and potentially distractions from the core social questions of economic despair and shuttered opportunity, which plague both poor minority neighborhoods and the white working class alike.
Over the past year, I have from time to time posted the most mild-mannered of comments on Facebook, suggesting that the gun issue is more complex than one might think. I am not exactly fearless on social media, anxious about the cultural disapprobation that comes with conservative views in my circles. My posts have been exceptionally mealy-mouthed, timid suggestions that the gun issue is tricky or perhaps a particular National Review article is “worth a look.”
Australia’s descent into firearms hell continues apace . . . Lever action shotguns reclassified into tightest legal ranking, changes labelled ‘unfair’
LEVER action shotguns – “tools of the trade” to the North West farming community – have officially been reclassified into the tightest legal ranking.
The Firearms and Weapons Legislation Amendment Act 2017 came into effect on November 1, re-categorising lever action shotguns with a magazine capacity of no more than five rounds from a category A to a category B, and those with a magazine capacity of more than five rounds from a category A to a category D.
NSW Nationals Senator John “Wacka” Williams has publicly attacked the reclassification, labelling it “unfair” and “inconsistent”.
“My opinion is that it should have been a category B, where farmers could have bought the rifle shotgun,” Mr Williams said on Thursday.
Good luck with that . . . New Jersey – Defeat Democrat Gun Banner Phil Murphy ~ VIDEO
If there’s one thing that defines New Jersey gun owners, it’s the courage and tenacity to repeatedly face the “David and Goliath” battles and win against impossible odds, when most everyone else would have given up.
The upcoming Governor’s race on November 7 2017 will be the ultimate test of our mettle. Anti-gun Wall Street mega-millionaire Phil Murphy, an unknown who came out of left field, bullied and bought his way to the Democratic nomination. He cleared the field of serious, well-established candidates by creating the illusion that his anointing was inevitable. Democratic party leaders and candidates folded like a house of cards under that hallucination, abandoning years of planning and posturing, and handing Murphy the nomination without a real fight. The illusion became a self-fulfilling prophecy in the primary.
Black Aces Tactical (BAT), an American manufacturer best known for its patented custom shotguns, is excited to announce the release of the company’s new Magazine Fed Shockwave 12 gauge.
Said Lemoine, “Given the incredible success of the Mossberg Shockwave platform, it is only natural that we offer a magazine fed version of the weapon that has proven nothing short of a phenomenon. This as of late has been the question we have been receiving most. “When will Black Aces Tactical release a magazine fed version of the Shockwave?” Now that weapon is a reality.”
Starting at just $499 retail, the Black Aces Tactical Magazine Fed Shockwave offers a significant upgrade to al already incredible platform. As an option Black Aces Tactical is offering an option Tri-Rail and Magpul AFG handguard.
Hornady®, a world leader in bullet, ammunition, and reloading products is pleased to announce the launch of the new Hornady Ballistic Calculator App that includes the advanced state-of-the-art 4DOF™ calculator as well as a standard BC (ballistic coefficient) calculator. The new Hornady Ballistic Calculator App is available for free on both the Apple and Android app stores and allows users to calculate trajectories in areas without wireless connectivity.
Introduced in an online, website version in August 2016, the new 4DOF™ (4 Degrees of Freedom) Ballistic Calculator has become a popular resource for those seeking more accurate trajectories, especially at extreme ranges. The Hornady 4DOF calculator provides trajectory solutions based on projectile Drag Coefficient (not ballistic coefficient) along with the exact physical modeling of the projectile and its mass and aerodynamic properties. Additionally, it is the first publicly available program that will correctly calculate the vertical shift a bullet experiences as it encounters a crosswind; referred to as aerodynamic jump. The use of drag coefficients, correct projectile dynamics, aerodynamic jump and spin drift enable the Hornady 4DOF ballistic calculator to be the most accurate commercial trajectory program available–even at extreme ranges.
Un-funny topical comedienne discovers “the boyfriend loophole” . . . Sam Bee Highlights A Key Predictor Of Mass Shootings: Domestic Violence
Turns out there are ways to help prevent mass shootings.
According to the group Everytown For Gun Safety, 54 percent of mass shootings from 2009 to 2016 were “related to domestic or family violence.”
While many domestic abusers ― that is, people subject to permanent domestic violence restraining orders ― are prohibited from buying guns, there still remains a glaring hole in the law known as “the boyfriend loophole.”
And now that Halloween is in the rear view mirror, it’s apparently officially the Christmas season:
