Federal authorities recently searched the property of Kyle Lamar Myers, the guy who’s famous for pretending to be Russian then shooting huge guns and causing violent explosions on the popular YouTube channel FPSRussia. Before the search, the sheriff of Franklin County, Georgia arrested Myers for receiving drugs in the mail. And the story only gets crazier from there.
It seems like the drug-related arrest is part of some sort of sting operation. Feds have searched Myers’s properties looking for illegal weapons once before. If this isn’t a sting operation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms stumbled across a huge stash of weapons seemingly by accident. But it really doesn’t seem like an accident.
The ATF only obtained a search warrant for the Myers property in Carnesville, Georgia, after the local sheriff caught the 31-year-old gun enthusiast receiving, one local source reports, butane honey oil (a marijuana concentrate) through the United States Postal Service. The warrant enabled the ATF to carry out the search, during which agents confiscated over 50 firearms, drug paraphernalia, and more drugs, possibly butane honey oil. No illegal explosives were found on the property.
Tin foil hat or ahead of the curve? . . . Does the Left Know Something’s Coming Involving Guns?
Have you noticed the multiple calls recently for increased gun control, despite the fact that all of the harm being done presently at leftist riots does not (yet) involve guns? A car was used in Charlottesville, as vehicles have been used before, yet, as if unaware of the public facts, leftist politicians and activists have increased their calls for greater gun control. A car was used in Spain, and in Britain before that, and in Paris before that, and each time, American leftists called for greater gun control in the United States. Paul Ryan mentioned increased gun control at a public forum recently in response to a question asked of him by someone he knew. Despite the utter lack of a connection with guns in anything to do with Charlottesville, he linked the event to gun ownership in the U.S. and concurred that more control is needed. Weird, right?
This is what happens to a
stupid disarmed populace . . . Boy finds gun in dressing room at Georgia mall, mom pulls trigger
A gun was accidentally fired after being found in a dressing room at an Atlanta shopping mall.
Media outlets report a mother and son were inside a dressing room at the Adidas store in Lenox Square on Wednesday when the 10-year-old boy found what he thought was a toy gun under a bench. Atlanta police spokeswoman Stephanie Brown says the mother took the gun from the boy and pulled the trigger “to see if it was real.” A single shot was fired.
In a country with over 300 million firearms . . . Chicago Police: Nearly 6,000 illegal guns seized this year
Chicago Police say officers have seized nearly 6,000 illegal guns so far this year.
That is about 250 more guns than officers took off the streets during the same period last year.
Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson announced the totals on Wednesday, a day after the Chicago Sun-Times reported that the number of arrests dropped 24 percent between 2015 and 2016.
So 24% fewer arrests in 2016. Guess what happened then….
OMG! Teenagers learning to shoot! Rifles! OMG! . . . Kids Are Learning Combat And Sniper Skills At ‘Military Disneyland’ Summer Camps
Thirteen-year-old Mitch Kloepper was cleaning his rifle. Behind him, a drill instructor barked out orders and two teenage campers dropped to the ground to do pushups. “This is fun for a certain kind of person,” Kloepper explained.
Most summer camps offer sports like soccer and baseball. Some include riflery. But at the Military Adventure Camp in Flemingsburg, Kentucky, kids ages 12-18 learn to shoot assault-style rifles and practice sniper skills and hand-to-hand combat.
The camp is a “military Disneyland” that teaches children discipline and confidence, said Jay Whitehead, its director. Situated among rolling fields in rural Kentucky about two hours from Louisville, it seems more like boot camp than summer camp. Campers, who dress in fatigues, stay in barracks-style houses and are expected to make their bunk beds with military precision.
This is why we can’t have nice things . . . Last Call For Free ‘Ladies Night’ Shooting Range
However, it’s last call for “Ladies Night, at least for now, after (Magnum owner Peter) Lee got a letter from an Orange County man threatening legal action. The man is upset since he had to pay while attending a “Ladies Night” and says he deserves compensation claiming the program is discrimination.
The letter reads in part:
“Promotions such as those mentioned above constitute civil rights violations under the California Unruh Civil Rights Act and entitle the individual subject to discrimination to statutory damages.”
Men had been able to come to “Ladies Night” but had to pay.
Always good advice . . . Don’t Stand In Front Of A Loaded Gun
I wrote about the stocks from a technical perspective in yesterday’s blog post “Next Leg Down For Gun Stocks?” However, I want to touch on it here.
Since I wrote “Excitement For Gun Rights, Anxiety For Gun Investors,” the publicly traded equities have either gone nowhere to became falling projectiles. While investors are typically warned not to try and catch a falling knife, I think in our case it is appropriate to state the obvious, don’t stand in front of a loaded gun.
Since my article was published on June 7th, Vista Outdoor was able to eek out a 4% gain based on “not as bad” earnings results.
Seems like some investor looked at my article heeded my warnings (let me think it please) and sent both American Outdoor Brands and Ruger down over 25% in just 2 months. (Why didn’t I short it??)
